One of the best ways to be seen and noticed these days is by wearing a t-shirt. No other article of clothing has had such a level of impact on people’s ability to express them. Others have tried. There have been irreverent ties. Unfortunately, ties aren’t appropriate for every occasion, and occasions that do require one probably won’t allow a Homer Simpson or piano keys print tie. Hats have had a pretty good run in the bold department, too, but most people tend to go a hair more conservative, usually opting to show their sports affiliations on their heads.
Many of the bolder new designs on t-shirts combine various graphic elements in unexpected ways. One t-shirt designed to promote both a rock concert as well as an airline features the standard “rock on” hand gesture, with the index finger and pinky of the hand each forming an airline runway. Another, on Threadless, appropriately called “moon hug,” shows a crescent moon, apparently engaged in a hug with the dark portion of the moon.
There’s also an intricately-designed shirt by designer Fresco24, featuring a colorful Bhutanese dragon. Yet another, by Inkfx, features a mellow, coffee color with a large zig-zag arrow design. Bottom line, in these or any other bold t-shirts, the wearer is bound to be noticed more than they would in any polo shirt.
