The humble t- shirt has come a long way since its origins back in 1913 when they held the function of regulation undergarments for the U.S Navy. Two decades on and the University of Southern California issued t-shirts to its football players to stop their shoulder pads chafing. It wasn’t until students started stealing these for casual-wear that they hit the fashion scene! This crime wave spawned the original printed t-shirts with the university stencilling ‘USC’ onto them as a crime prevention tactic.
You can’t say Amplified doesn’t teach you anything, but enough of the history lesson and back to 2013 where the t-shirt holds a pretty high position on the hierarchy of garments, particularly the printed t-shirt for Spring/Summer 13. With the likes of Commes Des Garcons, Henry Holland, Alexander McQueen and Givenchy rolling them out for the sunnier seasons you know you’re onto a winner.
So where can you get some cool and quirky printed t-shirts that won’t set you back a month’s rent. . . AMPLIFIED OF COURSE!
Head to the shopping part of this site to check out the t-shirts you’ll be ‘rocking’ this summer, because after all students committed crime to get these into fashion for you!
