The t-shirt has been a staple in both men’s and women’s closet forever. Whether you are wearing it under a summer suit jacket or lightweight cardigan, with your favorite blue jeans, or with your swim trunks at the shore, the t-shirt can be an essential part of any look.
Graphic t-shirts are the modern version of the plain t-shirts. They are used as more of a fashion accessory or statement piece than their plain counterparts. The first printed t-shirt was in made in the 1950’s and the artistic explosion began there. The graphic t-shirt displayed clothing design house logos, political views, and artwork through pictures on clothing. Today, the graphic t-shirt transforms an essential piece of clothing into a surprisingly clever fashion accessory regularly on shelves of urban brands like RVCA and KENZO.
For example, this “Surf Days 1983” in a heather grey cotton weave is a throwback to the vintage tees designs that are still very popular today. School/College logos, products found during that time period, or musical groups will spark a memory for those of us who are old enough to remember and are an interesting conversation piece, as well as a clothing choice.
This American flag imprinted skull and wings graphic t-shirt by BlackRock Denim & Co., manufactured in a slim-fitting, thin grey fabric is a modern cut and a bold statement accessory for your wardrobe. The patriotic theme and the skull with wings graphics are popular separately and together in an, uh, unique crowd…
If you are a the kind of guy who doesn’t like wording on your clothing, than you may like the style of graphic t-shirts that are just a design, like this white men’s t-shirt with the infinity sign that is constructed of neutral colored triangle shapes. The shapes are interesting and they use it to uniquely form a universal symbol that has almost a 3-D effect to it. This would be a great addition to a casual summer linen suit jacket to give your look a little more “edginess”.
You can even get those 6-pack abs that you have always wanted imprinted on a graphic t-shirt if you want like in this one with the snake, eagle, dragon, and shield in addition to the “gym perfect” pecks. A bit gimmicky, if you ask me!
