Maybe your sneaker collection is getting too big. Or maybe your first and only tattoo was just too painful for a repeat performance. Still, you want to be the type of person that isn’t afraid to let their freak flag fly or, at the very least, put your imprint on the day. Fortunately for you, we live in times when you have a few more choices than sneakers and tattoos to personalise your space, your look and your loves. As a matter of fact, the answer to your personalised dreams might already be sitting in your closet with that growing stack of well-folded t-shirts, each waiting for its moment in the sun. Given the scope of things you love, from music to superheroes, villains and everything in between, that stack of shirts should probably be higher than it is.
Advertise Your Personality
It’s so easy to get lost among the huddled masses, the constant noise that surrounds you every day. Everyone is so distracted now, their face stuck to their smartphones like hamsters on a wheel. Getting your voice loud enough to pierce that drab cloud of sameness isn’t the simplest of tasks. That’s where that neatly folded stack of t-shirts comes in handy.
T-shirts have replaced the pins on torn denim jackets and hipster hats as simple, wallet-friendly ways to literally wear your passions on your sleeve. A t-shirt of a band you still love but everyone else has forgotten speaks volumes about your personality. It screams authenticity, loyalty and an utter lack of care over what the rest of the world might think of that band. Likewise, although you might be hesitant to enter the ever-raging Marvel/DC battle, matching your wise, all-knowing mood on any particular morning with your favourite Killing Joke-era Batman t-shirt nods to what you’re capable of that day, Joker antics aside.
Find Your Voice, and Save Some Time and Cash
None of this was possible just a decade ago. Back then, the internet wasn’t what it’s become today, a giant marketplace filled with any item you can dream up, imagine or desire. Luc Bauer didn’t exist yet, online shopping was filled with books, CDs and flower arrangements, and any custom t-shirt you wanted probably had to be handmade by some guy in New Jersey and would cost you a week’s salary.
Today, anything you want to say about yourself and what makes you different is not only possible but downright easy. Whether you prefer the old-school, blond haired, blue eyed Aquaman or the new MMA version that looks more warrior than merman, Luc Bauer has you covered. For the ladies that might connect more with a golden lasso goddess than a damsel in distress, it’s time to let everyone know. While Elsa and Anna certainly deserve a spot in your wardrobe, sometimes the Wonder Woman in you is just too strong to be ignored. Thankfully, these days it’s easy to find the t-shirts that will fit those moods and, more importantly, you’ll actually be able to afford them.
Shirts for Big Imaginations
The onslaught of your science fiction dreams turned into cinematic realities might put you in a never-ending daydream that you don’t want to escape. Whether you’re Star Wars or Star Trek, Avengers or Justice League, the right t-shirt can help keep you in that imaginative, curious and galactic mindset that puts the fuel in your jets. They can allow you to spend your days and nights with that subtle reminder of those big, loud and vibrant stories of little green wise men living in swamps, shadowy father-figures with evil in their hearts, and heroes from distant planets that fight alongside earth’s mightiest heroes. While it might seem too simple a notion, maybe even a stretch of reason, a t-shirt that matches those things you care for can put a bounce in your step on a day you might really need it.
So How Many T-Shirts Should You Own?
It might sound like a tricky question, but the answer is pretty straightforward. Everyone leads a fast life with little time to really pursue what makes us tick. The busy, bustling world moves so quickly, it’s easy to get caught up in the drama of work, school, family and friends, losing yourself in the process. Smartphones are everywhere you turn because they’re easy. Want to check the weather? Just pick up your phone and look it up. Are you hopelessly lost trying to find your friend’s new apartment? GPS will get you there with no problem. Life is now about convenience because we have no spare time to give.
The very same thing can be said about expressing ourselves. How many t-shirts should you own? Well, how many different moods do you go through over the course of a month? How many things in your life, whether it’s music, comics, sci-fi or anything else, do you connect with? If you’re like most people, the answer is too many to count. A t-shirt of your favourite band, movie, hero or villain won’t cost much at all, can match your look to however you might feel at any given moment, and let the world know what drives you. It doesn’t matter what everyone else might think because what you wear helps distinguish you from those huddled masses. So how many t-shirts should you own? The best answer is another question: How big is your closet? Luc Bauer can help you fill it with the things that define you.
