There are numerous successful brand names that have either started out printing design-based t-shirts or branched out to include these kinds of t-shirts in their clothing line. Many of them are more popular among men than women because of the greater appeal t-shirts garner among men. Design-based t-shirts can be bought in just about any store that sells men’s clothing, they are often worn casually with regular jeans meaning they are donned frequently. For this reason a few people may consider starting their own private companies that specialize in t-shirt printing. If you are one of these people, read up as much as you can about the actual process, what trends are in, and any copyright laws you may need to be aware of. Also you may check out to learn more about this fun and possibly lucrative activity.

These are a few top brand names that you may likely encounter in most clothing stores. A number of these began specifically creating these types of shirts while others merely extended their clothing line to accommodate this fairly new trend as stated earlier. They are not listed in order of greatest popularity, but each brand has somehow made its mark in the industry deserving a bit of recognition.

Blac Label

Blac label was established in 2002 in a reaction to the novelty T-shirts that were flooding the market at the time. The brand has since become more innovative and trendsetting with their designs and now includes a complete line of clothing for both men and women. They will also be instituting their line of accessories and a separate clothing line for boys.

Black Hearts Brigade

Black hearts Brigade came on the market in 2005, the collection focuses on punk, rock and old school and has that dark edge that makes it appealing to a younger generation. The team behind the design continues to make unique creations with the exception that it is not limited to one type of style but a continued mix of ideas and expressions. The brand is worn by many, from the average person to the most talked about celebrities.

wn for his work as a tattoo artist. He is considered “the godfather of modern tattoo” and that reputation has been carried on through t-shirts that have immortalized his legendary work. The experimental look of his designs are eye-catching and a bold way to make a statement.


Rocawear is a popular clothing line that was co-founded by Shawn Jay-Z Carter. The clothing is trendy and worn by many rappers and ordinary people. It recently branched out into creating unique roca wear design-based shirts which have sold in the millions.


Diesel is a long standing Italian company established in 1978 that has marketed its clothing to young adults for over 3 decades. They have successfully launched their own brand of design based t-shirts that have done quite well.

Kenneth Cole

Kenneth Cole is a prominent designer whose success is closely related to his line of shoes, however his clothing line also includes design-based t-shirts that are very popular among men of all ages.

What we wear has become very much the way that we want others to view us. Such influences that fashion trends have on us, leads to everyone carrying their own style and others being forced to chase the fashion industry.

Current T-shirts that are in fashion at the moment include thin cotton t-shirts that have a drooped neck line in the front. Personally these t-shirts look like someone has grabbed the t-shirt and stretched it by the neckline but as is the monster of fashion, these t-shirts are everywhere at the moment and expect to see more as the sun continues to shine!

Another popular t-shirt at the moment is also thin cotton and incorporates a thin cotton hood on the back of the t-shirt. Both of these types of t-shirts are plain in colour and pattern but prove to be extremely popular.

Geek Chic

If you have seen an episode of the I.T Crowd, then you will know exactly the type of t-shirt I am talking about. These are comedy t-shirts often with a nerdy topic involved such as a computer virus or programming as the theme. They were originally found in the I.T department of companies worn by geeks but have become mainstream and are now very fashionable whether the ‘originals’ like it or not.

These t-shirts can be found in any town centre up and down the country and often using a mixture of technology ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and innuendo’s these style t-shirts have some very original and funny designs.

This Summer

As a prediction for the coming summer I think we will see an influx of ‘wife-beater’ t-shirts. These are effectively vest tops, but providing the weather holds out over the summer we will see a whole lot of these vest tops accompanied by flowery shorts this summer!

Along with the vest tops, I think we will continue down the route of thin cotton t-shirts which allow you to breathe in the hot weather! A lot of the mainstream shops will be selling their versions of these plain t-shirts probably on some sort of group deal saver where you can buy 2/3 t-shirts for £10/$10!

The problem with fashion, unless you are Cheryl Cole where you can wear what you want and people will follow, is that you are always playing catchup! You can spend a fortune one week on clothes and they can be out of date the following week! You are much better off sharing your personality with the world through the t-shirts that you like rather than what you are told is in!
