Vintage looking tubular

Done some searching but haven't found what I'm looking for yet, or better put, not sure what is popular for restorations.
I have an early 70's bike that's done except for tires.

I'd appreciate any comments on vintage looking tires, gumwall style, 700c x 21 rim.

This will be a bike ridden just for fun and not at a competitive level.

probably the tires from yellowjersey
They have restrained labeling.
There are plenty of good to great quality "traditional" looking tubulars today, BUT on most the labeling is extensive.

I don't think the Gommitalia Espresso's labeling is overboard. You could give them a look.

I've been purchasing either Challenge or FMB tubulars for my oldest rides. Sidewalls are very vintage, FMB are classic by definition, and the Challenge tires wear out the labeling pretty quickly which makes them start to look vintage (the labeling is not on the gumwall). But, the reason I buy them is they are such good tires.
