T-Shirts Make Your Statement!T-Shirts Make Your Statement!T-Shirts Make Your Statement!

Seniors, adults, teens, children, toddlers, and even parents of newborn babies are all trying to tell us something. With bright colored bands on their wrists, pink ribbon broaches pinned to their shirts, bumper stickers and decals stuck on cars, everyone seems to be making some sort of statement.

In a world where we're often told not to judge a book by it's cover, it would seem that millions, if not billions of people are asking you to do exactly that.

Living in a modern day society so open to sharing everything from their political views to what they had for breakfast, it should be no surprise that one's desire to project outward has influenced what we put on our bodies. In many ways, we've been doing this for a long time without even knowing it: rings that indicate marital status, tattoos that depict history of one's life, and even baseball caps that represent your favorite sports team. So obviously, it would make perfect logical sense that we're buying tee shirts with slogans to broadcast our sense of individuality, or that we wear fitted tee shirts to demonstrate that we have indeed been attending our local workout facility.

As much as we use what we wear to showcase our inner self, we also often choose our clothing to display our sense of solidarity. Be it even as simple as a common shirt color, style, or slogan to psychopathic merch support of our favorite super hero or a public cause, or our proud nation...we often find ways to stand for something without actually saying anything. T-shirts can illustrate our beliefs - even if only for a moment - to convey a sense of purpose, action or belonging.

If we look around the world or even in our own closet, we'll see that our clothes aren't just what we wear, they are direct representations of who we are. The history of the t-shirt dates all the way back to World War I. Envied by U.S solders who noticed that Europeans were sporting their cool, breathable undershirts - now known as the tee shirt. The U.S. military quickly saw their wool uniforms as a substantially sub-par alternative (hot, itchy, inflexible, etc.) to these so called t-shirts, and were eager to adopt the comfortable trend of the Europeans' t-shirt idea. If we flash forward several years, now these garments are sported by the always appealing bad boys in the most popular movies of the time: James Dean, Marlon Brando and many more. In the mid 50's, we now find the oh so popular v-neck t-shirt and a close second, the ringer t-shirt, in the late 50's-60's when rock bands were often found selling their t-shirts to generate income and provide an outlet for fans to pledge their allegiance while attending live concerts. Now, in the 70's - the hippies - as innovative as they were took it even further with tie die shirts...a bonafide staple at countless Vietnam peace rallies. And, from this point on, t-shirts have been continuously utilized not only as cover, but as communication tools for the masses. From businesses branding their logos on golf shirts at a conferences to cute sayings on a child's t-shirt, there's nothing that can't be said on t shirt.
