Tee Shirts Are Hot Items
for Post-Holiday Shopping

The holidays are over, but
the post-holiday sales are spurring plenty of shopping activity. No
matter what the occasion is, there is one failsafe, practical, sure to
please gift – a tee shirt.
We all wear tee shirts. At some point in the week, we find ourselves in
a tee shirt. For some, it’s at the gym or while exercising, or out to

find themselves in a really comfortable tee shirt, just lounging around
on the weekend, sporting something that’s casual, easy, and clean. And
for another crowd, a tee shirt is the best nightgown or pajamas money
Some tee shirts become mementos. They remind us of a certain trip or
vacation, tease us that we were once young and in college in the class

uniform of style. A solid color tee shirt goes well under just about
anything. In an increasingly growing sector of the tee shirt market,
custom designed tee shirts are becoming a fashion and personal
Tee shirts are now available with raunchy or very controversial
messages, sure to create a look of amazement and a few raised eyebrows
from HR when you show up wearing an offensive tee shirt to a company
party or a neighbor’s get together. Search cool t-shirts, filthy tee
shorts, or music tee shirts for some examples. These can be fun and
worth a good laugh or spark a heated discussion, but may not be suitable
for all audiences.
Another emerging custom tee shirt category offers original works of art
interpretations of the famous people, or Icons, of our times. Many
companies offer them, and you can find your choice from searching on
Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, or any search engine you choose. One such
company is Icon Tees, who says, “Icon is about You, It’s about me, It’s
about all of us…..There are no restrictions, just representations. Say
what you want without speaking. Your body is your billboard.” Icon Tees
offers 100% original, one of a kind designed tee shirts featuring icons
of past and present. Their tee shirts include figures whose prominence
ranges from the art world to the underworld and from biblical times to
present day. They can be worn to the club, around campus, or just about
No matter what the occasion, a tee shirt is a great gift. Here are the
top 10 reasons why:
1. Tee shirts come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find one to fit
any size, shape, style of person.

whether in and around town or to bed – they get worn.

box, throw into a bag, or just cover with some paper. This is a wrap job

become so popular that even Donald Trump may come out with his own tee
8. Online Etailers offer original designs with images, phrases,
statements, artwork, or even icons like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce
Lee, Notorious BIG, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain,
Jesus Christ, Run DMC, John Gotti, and Mohammed Ali that will suit any
age or taste.
