Another graphic tee

Another graphic tee
I always wondered if graphic t-shirts were not too literal. If they were just a lazy way to say something about yourself when personal style could be eloquent enough—a great pair of jeans and a great looking blazer can say a lot about someone without saying a word. Then I thought that maybe a graphic tee (and especially those with words) could be valuable if it actually means something to the person wearing it. What makes someone look like they are wearing a statement and not just "another graphic t-shirt" is how connected they are with the message emblazoned on the fabric. As an immigrant and non-native English speaker living in the United States, I get so excited when I find words in English that sound just like words that I used to say in Spanish and I am fascinated by the power that graphic tees have given me to share those words—and my excitement/nostalgia for the language I left behind. The language that was part of my identity and that I find in some uncommon English terms. The words on my t-shirts speak to some people. For some others they are inevitably just another graphic tee. And that's probably the whole point: people need to believe in the graphics they are wearing.
