Graphic Tee’s – a Clever way to Peacock
The logo tee is a constant in men’s casual wear with its simplicity and comfort in knowing you are blending into the background of the sea of advertising. But let’s say you don’t feel like being a billboard for Hurley, Billabong, Ed Hardy or any other brand, what type of shirt should you turn to?
A graphic tee is an excellent way to get away from the logos while upping your style quotient. A tip though when looking for the perfect tee: try to steer away from the ever so trendy splatter graphic that litters the shirts on Melrose in LA. Instead go for a fun and funky top, like this astronaut Tee from Hot Topic. Not into space travel? Then try the entertaining Burn Lion Tee, it too from Hot Topic.
Style Rocket and Pac Sun also have some marvelous fashion tees including some great ones in bold colors including sunny yellow, red and emerald green. Although the logos are still there, particularly with Pac Sun, they have been cunningly placed within the illustration of the tee so as not to be so obvious. I specifically enjoyed many of the Rip Curl shirts.
A major pro about sporting this type of stylish tee shirt is it can work during the day as well as the evening. All you have to do is throw on a blazer with your tee and jeans and you are ready to party for the night. I suggest pairing Style Rocket’s Howe Feel Me blazer with either of the Tees mentioned above.
