The Modern History of the T-Shirt
T-shirts are the perfect blank canvas. They allow for self-expression through a simple, basic garment. You can pair them with anything—dress them up or down. Their versatility has become an expectation to the everyday wearer. Here’s a look at how they rose to fame as a fashion staple and made their way into the modern American lifestyle through pop culture and rebellion:
T-SHIRTS IN POP CULTURE & MODERN RESISTANCE
In the earlier half of the 20th Century, the T-shirt trends we see today first emerged in the mainstream. The Wizard of Oz was the first time we saw promotional T-shirts modeled after the emerald green Ts worn in the film by the people of Oz.
With this, T-shirts were seen as even more accessible to the masses. In the latter part of the century, T-shirts started making waves as a symbol of youth and rebellion. It was at this time that the T-shirt made its debut in film and therefore gained traction in popular culture. The rebellious image was launched in the 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire, inspired by Tennessee Williams’ classic play. Actor and main protagonist, Marlon Brando, introduced a simple yet powerful image of danger and appeal that secured the T-shirt’s spot as a fashion necessity for everyone.

Reportedly, the first iconic concert T-shirt featured Elvis Presley in the late 1950s, sparking the band T trend that eventually led to iconic logos appearing on T-shirts from the Grateful Dead to Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.  The T-shirt also has a thread of rebellion deeply woven into its fabrics. In the 1970s, the T-shirt was a fundamental part of protesting the Vietnam War. The tie-dye trends of Woodstock also led to rock and pop culture fan Ts in the ’80s and ’90s.  It was thanks to this dramatization of the T-shirt that the garment

Easy Ways To Clean Vintage Clothing

Because vintage clothes have been around for many years, they are more prone to disintegration. One act of negligence and you are likely to jeopardize their condition and value. But how do you actually maintain and clean vintage clothing?  Many people end up ruining their vintage clothes because they know little about the fabric, cleaning chemicals and solutions, and procedures. If there’s one thing you have to keep in mind when cleaning vintage items it is to be extra careful. 

Some people are not naturally good at washing; they cannot even be trusted with their ordinary clothes. If you are one of them, it’s better not to attempt washing your vintage items. It would do you better if you take them to a cleaning specialist. Washing vintage clothes is unlike washing your ordinary clothes, for one, because they require special effort—you need to handwash them one at a time. Remember that the fabrics have aged and weakened considerably and subjecting them to rigid rotation inside a washing machine may cause damage. Same is true with the dryer, so to be on the safe side, consider air or drip drying your garments. Only make sure to use padded hangers instead of wood and metal, as these kinds may cause stains. 

Take note, however, that washing is good only to certain fabrics such as cotton, nylon, and some wools and silks. Others may shrink, lose their body and finish, and get distorted, thus requiring dry cleaning. Examples are rayon and lace. In some cases, though, they only need to be aired. For instance, if the garment is relatively clean but has a persisting odor, hang it outside. But keep in mind that some fabrics, such as white and cream wools and silks, may be prone to di

If plain white tees are the Pete Sampras of the menswear world—well-rounded, even-mannered, a preeminent champion—then black tees are Andre Agassi. They’re sexier, sleeker, more direct. You wear a white tee because it’s easy and goes with everything; you pull on a black one when you want to feel good. They give off Danny Zuko-y bad boy vibes with a leather jacket, bring an assassin-like precision to a black or navy suit, and just generally look smart and modern on their own. You are never underdressed in a black T-shirt.

Promotional T-shirts have been a part of business promotion and marketing of brands for a long time. Promotional T Shirts can be given to clients, to prospective customers, and also to your employees to give them the added feeling of belonging to a brand. You do not need to be a world famous brand to benefit from promotional T-shirts. Even new businesses have used T Shirts to create awareness of their product, brand or business.
Giving Promotional T Shirts to your employees is a great way for brand endorsement. You can design T Shirts with your company brand and marketing message for your employees and if you are hosting a conference, exhibition or promotional event, make it mandatory for your employees to wear promotional T Shirts. It is a very inexpensive method to make your staff stand out from the crowd and you present an orderly unity among your employees, the same way in which a uniform serves.
Some businesses think that it is too expensive to buy a t-shirt online but they are often incorrect. Purchasing t shirts online is a fast and easy process and the choice of online shops is much better than you expect it to be with some allowing you to undertake the entire design process and payment online.
Corporate branding on T-Shirts can significantly improve the brand awareness of a business in a very short period of time and aside from the obvious marketing advantages branded T-Shirts and other clothing can enhance the perception of customers to your business. Considering the relatively low cost of purchase and printing T shirts against the length of time a good quality T Shirt can last, makes branded T shirts one of the most cost effective methods of marketing for many businesses.

It is quite right to say that it is the clothes, which make a complete man. People who are naked usually do not have any influence or respect within the society. In today’s modern world, the society around us is developing in the sense that the apparel one wears, usually reflects his or her social status. Not only woman but also men are now wearing different types of apparels for conveying social status as well as a mode of self-expression.

It was from the year 1960, when T-shirts were being used to reflect self-expression. Earlier than that, the T-shirts were much simpler and plain which were substituted into the works of tie-dye. To write some messages on the T-shirts, screen-printing was used to have any eye-catching appearance. The T-shirts with some letters and pictures printed on it became very popular among common people. Through the years bands used to sell the T-shirts to the fans that used them to symbolize their identities.
Nowadays teenagers are a bit more fashion conscious about them. They usually do not hesitate to spend to try out the hottest trends of clothes. But unfortunately for the teens who are larger, struggle to get their size of clothing according to their choice. Again it’s a problem for them, that there is a very small chance of getting nice and fashionable clothes of the latest trends and also they find apparel which fits well to their body.
The designers of clothes have now started to develop fashionable and trendy apparels for the teens, which can also fit comfortably. It has started for the reason that many manufacturers of clothes have realized that the teens of plus sized, generally have considerable spending power.
The online stores all over the web have now become crowded offering trendy apparels for teens with plus size. Both plus size men and woman are provided with the opportunity to shop fashionable clothes according to t

Hooded sweatshirts, often referred to as “hoodies” now hold a permanent place in fashion. The hoodie was a piece of clothing that started out primarily as workout wear. Now you can find hoodies made by famous clothing designers and ranging in price as high as the hundreds of dollars for some designs. Why has the hoodie become so popular? Let’s take a look at who wears them the most.

The hoodie is definitely geared toward the younger generation. The urban clothing industry is definitely in the lead for the creation and marketing of hoodies. The trend can be traced back to rappers who wore them as a way of looking sinister. Now the trend has taken off and any urban clothing enthusiast would have at least one hoodie in their wardrobe.

Hoodies are no longer just popular for males. Clothing designers have created hoodies that fit the frame of young women as well. They do not fit large and bulky the way most men prefer their hoodies. Hoodies for women are made to fit a woman’s frame to still accentuate her figure. The urban look of the hoodie compliments both men and women when wearing a cool pair of jeans and some fly kicks.

The hoodie is not limited just to the urban clothing scene. Surfers and skateboarders are big fans of the hoodie as well. It is not uncommon to see both surfers and skateboarders sporting their favorite brand of hoodies on the beach or at the skate park. Popular brands for these hoodies include Axtacy Apparel and Good English Clothing Co. Not only are hoodies creating a fashion statement, but they are practical for a surfer who is attempting to stay warm after catching some early morning waves.

Hoodies will also always remain popular among the college crowd. There isn’t a university that you can visit that doesn&r

T-shirts , a necessary garment

Who doesn’t have at least 1 T-shirt in their wardrobe? T-Shirts are necessary garments and also make colorful statements regarding your personality, and to wear a t-shirt is plain comfortable. T-Shirts are not just fashionable but are comfortable clothes we enjoy to wear. They feel a lot better than formal wear due to their flexibility and light materials. I’d personally go as far to say that T-Shirts are wonderful apparel.
How do we know a T-shirt is of good quality? How will it wear after some time? What are some of the brands? What brands are the most trendy? What is trendy? Everyone has these questions when contemplating buying t-shirts and shopping.
A high quality t-shirt doesn’t need to be pricey, merely well-made and produced with all the appropriate cloth and high quality stitching. Just what exactly does well-made mean? For the majority of fashion designers and experts it ensures that it has a seamless collar, taped neck & shoulders, plus double needle stitching along the entire garment. The cloth is important, you need to find pre-shrunk 100% cotton jersey cloth, ideally, ring spun or combed cotton. Ring spinning and combing are processes which add softness to the cotton and they are noticeably softer than standard cotton. Everyone loves a great soft feeling on their skin. Many producers create t-shirts with ring spun or combed cotton. Brands such as Axtacy Apparel, Devon & Jones Vintage Tee as well as Good English Clothing Co really stick out as top choices, especially when considering style and fashion. Good English Clothing Co is a new t-shirt brand which includes many personable designs and patterns. Most of these are choices which are surprisingly soft, and only get better following repeated washing.
Finding t-shirts that last and then look fantastic despite multiple washing’s is essential. As
