2014 Back to School T-Shirt Gift Guide

2014 Back To School T-Shirt Gift Guide


In the grand scheme of things - in between books, binders, and glue sticks - shopping for new school clothes is a pretty amazing chore to cross off your to-do list come autumn. However, finding the perfect t-shirt for a specific personality might be difficult. Always the first to volunteer to window-shop for new digs, we’ve come up with some gift guides for common back-to-school personas. What do you think? Which shirt is on the top of your wish list this fall?

Stay in The House Carl T-Shirt – Shop         Game of Thrones: House Stark Polo -- Shop


These past few years have definitely been big for TV. There are so many series out there that feel more like weekly mini-movies than television shows, so it comes as no so surprise that the medium has its fair share of super-fans. From AMC’s line-up of nail biters like Breaking Bad and Walking Dead to vintage t-shirt styles featuring Star Trek or The Simpsons, there are plenty of shirts to pick from.  And who wouldn’t want a “Stay in the house, Carl” shirt? Second only to Rick Grimes dad jokes images.

Wearing your fandom on your sleeve has definitely become a lot more commonplace thanks to the success of superhero movies, imported anime, and various MMOs and other video games. However mainstream Loki, Thor, League of Legends, the 9th Doctor, Space Dandy, or Attack on Titan get, though, there’s no place like home, or, uh, excuse us - no place like a convention filled with likeminded fanboys and girls. In between SDCC, NYCC, and any smaller cons that happen in the meantime, you can let your love shine in the school hallways with these t-shirts.  Allons-y!

(A: Yes, always mad when someone says that out loud.) For this hipster friend of yours (don’t call them a hipster), suggest these tees for their approval. Hipsters love wolf shirts, right? And pizza. Well, we all love pizza.

MaDonna is the Lead Brand Specialist at Shirts.com and simply cannot pick her favorite style of t-shirt. Perhaps a concert tee with Morrissey’s lovely face on it. Or maybe a top that features her favorite Pokemon, Slowpoke! Who knows! Today she’s wearing a tank top that features all of the Zodiac symbols. Tomorrow? It’s a mystery.
