As strange as it sounds, but up until the 1950’s, t-shirts were still considered underwear until celebrities like John Wayne, James Dean, and Marlon Brando shocked their fellow Americans by wearing their “underwear” on television.
Now, after half a century, there are thousands of really cool tees, beginning with T-shirts that only have some funny messages, and ending with some crazy interactive shirts from Japan.
Here’s a list of 15 really creative T-shirt designs from around the globe – feel free to add your findings to the list.
