So, it’s a new year. Time to clean out the closets and get rid of all those old nasty pit stained t shirts. They were probably cool shirts in 1980 but now, they are just tired. Go ahead and put them in the bag for the thrift store. They are not vintage, or retro. They are just old and worn. And worse, so out of fashion. Feel better? Not so much? Well, cheer up. Now you get to go shopping for some new graphic shirts. Printed shirts that are fashionable and wearable. Awesome t shirts that will not cause people to snicker as you walk by. Now, where do you start? Well, let’s take a look at how and when you wear your t shirts.
You wear them for schlubbing around on the weekend, to the gym, and out doing errands. You wear them under a great looking jacket for a night out and possibly to work. You wear a cool t shirt if you participate in a race or fundraiser. Your children probably wear printed t shirts to school and for their sports. Everybody wears graphic tees. Now you need to find some cool shirt designs.
Online shopping for t shirts can be a bit tricky. Here are a few tips to consider when you are looking to replenish your wardrobe with new cool t shirts. Obviously, if you are looking for graphic t shirts that you are going to wear out at night or to work under a jacket, you are going to want a good quality tee. Many t shirt printers will print their higher end cool t shirts on brands like Canvas, American Apparel, Bella, Lofteez, or Alternative Apparel. You will pay a little more for these brands, but you will be getting a great quality, well made t shirt that will hold its shape and look great. Within these brands, there are different weights of the shirts. A shirt that has a weight of 4.5 will generally be a more fitted, softer feeling shirt. A printed t shirt with a weight of 6.1 will generally be a medium to heavyweight shirt. Brands like Gildan, some Hanes, and Jerzees are the workhorses of the graphic t shirt industry. They are less expensive than the others and are great for the everyday shirt.These brands are also the most commonly used for promotional t shirts, event t shirts and just your everyday t shirt.
Dig around online and find some great graphic tees that will work for each part of your day. If you are going to wear the shirt to work or out in the evening, it might be best to choose something with a beautiful subtle design, maybe with a little bling for the ladies. Out with the guys, then maybe the loud, funny or offensive t shirt. (Guys, never on a date!) Try to find something interesting. Something that has a really cool design or illustration. Stay away from that shirt that everyone has. Let your tee show your style. It is great to see someone coming down the street in a perfect fitting graphic t shirt that is really cool. Or the shirt that just makes you smile. Or occasionally, the shirt that makes you laugh out loud. Every graphic tee has its place. Make sure you get that huge pile of new cool shirts and it will really spice up your wardrobe. So go on out and buy yourself a pile of new cool t shirts. Dress them up or dress them down. They are a major staple in any wardrobe.
