Since the 1980s, T-shirts have flourished as a form of personal expression.
Designer Katharine Hamnett in the early 1980s pioneered outsize T-shirts with large-print slogans. The early 2000s saw the renewed popularity of T-shirts with slogans and designs with a strong inclination to the humorous and/or ironic. The trend has only increased later in this decade; embraced by celebrities, such as Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, and reflected back on them, too (‘Team Aniston’). The political and social statements that T-shirts often display have become, since the 2000s, one of the reasons that they have so deeply permeated different levels of culture and society. The statements also may be found to be offensive, shocking or pornographic to some. Many different organizations have caught on to the statement-making trend, including chain and independent stores, websites, and schools.
A popular phrase on the front of T-shirts demonstrating T-shirts’ popularity among tourists is the humorous phrase “I did _____ and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.” Examples include “My parents went to Las Vegas and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.”
T-shirt exchange is an activity where people trade their T-shirts they are wearing. Some designs specifically write on the shirt “trade with me
A life cycle study of one T-shirt brand shows that the CO2 emissions from a T-shirt is about 4 kilograms (8.8 pounds) — including the growing of the cotton, manufacturing and wholesale distribution. The loss of natural habitat potential from the T-shirt is estimated to be 10.8 square meters (116 square feet).
