Why shirts are so awesome
Tshirts are part of our national heritage. When servicemen in World War II wanted to relax, they would take off their uniform and wear a simple white tshirt, a comfortable respite from battle. When farmers went out into their fields for a full day’s work, they wore a tshirt, ensuring comfort amidst the wind and sun. But it’s not just the simple tshirt that’s changed us, but rather all kinds of styles from dress shirts, to polos, to camp shirts. First impressions are made by what we wear.
The simplistic form of the shirt hasn’t changed much since its inception, but they’ve stopped being mere utilitarian garments and become indispensible for communicating the unique qualities of the individual. Now, shirts are a symbol of self-expression; a tool for anyone, anywhere, to make their ideal, passion, or persuasion known to the world. A shirt is more than a mere piece of clothing—they help us engage with the things we love, and engage with those around us. When we wear a tshirt, or whatever our preferred style may be, it represents the things we love about life, and allows us to let others in on that joy. What movie made an impact on you? What band can’t you live without? What are the things that make you who you are? Tell someone, or better yet, tell everyone.
Everyone, people of all ages, wear shirts. Fathers and Mothers can help their children express themselves, even at an early age, with a children’s shirt that features a character, animal, or band that they love (or will certainly grow to love with a little help from Mom and Dad!).
Here at Shirts.com, we want to help you connect with the things you love about life. We can’t take you back to those early days of the tshirt, or the Victorian days of finery, but we can help you link with the past with our vintage collection of tees, featuring bands like The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones, or with a stylish dress shirt, or polo. Not everyone wants to look to the past, though, and that’s alright. We also have many pop culture tshirts and shirts that embody what’s fashionable in the here and now of today. If you love a current TV show, film property, or a band that still tours, we have you covered. We hope you find what you need right here at Shirts.com so we can help you express yourself the way you want, on your terms, with a simple, yet influential shirt.
