Naked Party

Streetcar_originalThe popularity of the t-shirt as attire and acceptable outer-wear began with this movie.

Marlon Brando, literally, was the poster boy for the post World War II trend of wearing a t-shirt as outerwear in 1951.  T-shirts have become our personal way of advertising beliefs, traditions and a sense of humor.  This is a far cry from the days when simply wearing a white t-shirt was a statement requiring no further clarification.

Some artists aspire to see their artwork displayed on t-shirts in popular stores.  Some artists abhor the t-shirt as a conveyance of personal advertisement.  Love them or hate them; they cannot be ignored.

With their cryptic communications and their testaments of taste, t-shirts are a passive analog conversation in an aggressive digital world.
