casually making a statement

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Feb 25 2016

We all have our favorite tee. It’s the one that’s so loved that it’s perfectly worn in all the right places, and if someone were to draw you as a cartoon character, that’s the shirt they would be drawn wearing. For some of you that may be a plain white tee, but I’m sure a fair share of you have one that has says a bit more about who you are as a person. Maybe it has  logo of your favorite band, or it’s the last remaining evidence that you did make it to the state championships in whatever sport you played and all you have to show for it is this shirt. Whatever the shirt’s design,  it showcases something extra about you that you don’t mind sharing with the rest of the world.
