Your t-shirt says a lot without you saying a word. From subculture identifier to protest slogan canvas, let’s take a deeper look at the t-shirt’s many messages.
From functional underwear to pop and youth culture icon. Not unlike its great ally, the blue jean, the t-shirt’s evolution into a totem of modernism speaks to its status as a new and emblematic uniform. Unlike its antecedent the button-down shirt, which needs pressing to look its best, the appeal of a t-shirt lies in its wash-and-go ease and adaptability – qualities that render it perfect for a message.
