Fashionable in slogan t-shirts

The history of wearing t-shirts dates back to the 19th century when they were first worn as undergarments for both men and women. Nowadays, t-shirts are worn alone or as a main garment. Changing trends also dominate how t-shirts are donned from white and plain shirts to colour and print shirts. The transformation continues with slogan t-shirts, a creative way of bringing life to a simple shirt with words emblazoned or printed on the garment as an expression of style, art, social or political beliefs.

Popular slogan t-shirts

In 1948, the first person to promote slogan t-shirts was a woman named Katharine Hamnett who produced large slogan prints on oversized shirts. In recent years, even celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Britney Spears were also seen donning slogan t-shirts. As such, manufacturers and companies caught up in the game and began producing and selling t-shirts with messages printed on them.

What started out as a functional use of the ordinary t-shirt soon branched out into something different yet cross cutting across all cultures. The political, humorous, and artistic themes of slogan t-shirts are characteristics that contributed to their survival and popularity. They are humorous, ironic, inspirational and motivational.
