The most iconic undergarment turned outerwear, the staple of every wardrobe, the portable poster. Yes, it is the good old T-shirt. It's history dating from the Wild Wild West times and the union suit, to finally taking it's final white T-shirt form in 1913, thanks to U.S. Navy, now we probably cannot imagine our lives without this beloved piece of garment.

Since the 1960's the T-shirt design took a turn making it into a platform for self-expression. Meaning you could now represent your beliefs, favorite band or tell the world about you past vacations without even talking about it and only by wearing a graphic T-shirt. Though it can also be just a funny T-shirt, without any strong beliefs behind it, too.

This post is dedicated to excellent and straightforward t-shirt design ideas that use the shirt's canvas creatively or cleverly. After the rise of numerous sites that print art on custom t-shirts, the amount of awesome tees out there has skyrocketed. If you've seen a mass-produced or personalized T-shirt that should be here, feel free to add it!
