After all these years, it’s finally here. . . The List- not just any list, but the list of the best places to buy graphic tees. Now some of you may say “Wait! I can buy them anywhere”, well yes, that is true, but for some reason I am constantly asked the question “Where should I buy my graphic t-shirts?” so here it is:

First off, every store has graphic tees now- the basics: Old Navy & Urban Outfitters. But I have searched the internet far and wide to discover the best places for particular graphic tees at a pretty decent price:

Best Prices: Heritage 1981
(http://www.forever21.com/heritage1981/mens/)
This is my number 1 pick, they have unique modern tees for around $16. (Heritage 1981 is sort of like the male version of forever 21)


Best Rock Tees: BlueBaldur.com

This website has very orginial looking rock star tees. The designs are really creative and edgy, and they seem to always have sales.


Best Phrases: Tshirthub.com
and Snorgtees.com

T-Shirt Hub has really funny t-shirts with phrase like “Save me JEBUS” and they’re only $10.
Snorg Tees are well known for their weekly new funny t-shirts. Prices are usually around $17


Most Authentic 80′s Tees: 80stees.com
This website is perfect for anyone wanting to get a 80′s t-shirt, you know a shirt that has RUN DMC or even a Fred Sanford or Rolling Stones throwback.


Best Musical Tees: Djtees.com
From Soul to Funk to 50s Rock & Guitar Stars, this site really does have stellar ass t-shirts. (prices are in british pound)


Best Political Tees: Barackawear.com

This is the original Barack Obama t-shirt and my personal favorite. There are millions of websites that have Obama t-shirts, but this is the t-shirt that all the stars wear and the most authentic “Barack shirt”.

Okay, I hope that list is helpful. . . peruse these websites and I’ll add more to the list later.

Men’s Fashion Trends

The great thing about men’s fashions is that it stays pretty consistent. There are minor changes that happen every other year or so, but usually the major looks and trends last for years. The other great thing about men’s fashion is that there are only a handful of trendy looks, oppose to the hundreds of different looks women can “go-for”. So if you’re revamping your wardrobe or just trying to figure out what’s “in”. . .then check out these current fashion trends.

Blue: Sound simple right, well it is. Blue is one the current colors of the season. This is the easiest current men’s trend- all you have to do is buy blue clothes- I’d suggest some nice cobalt blue button-ups and maybe a indigo blue tie.


Unique Frames: Nothing says “I’m fly” better than a unique pair of shades. The traditional aviators are always great, but try a box-framed aviator in one of your favorite colors is even better.


Neckwear: A great way to update your wardrobe without buying more clothes is to buy a few ties and scarves. If you’re a newbie to the scarf department you should stick to the traditional Arab scarf- it comes in a variety of colors. Ties are a great way to complete any look . . . and skinny ties are still a cut above the rest. Add a complimenting solid bright tie to your neutral toned button-up and sweater.

80’s: Everything 80’s is in . . .solid bright colors, geometric types shapes, gold jewelry, funky sneakers, and more. Some guys like to go completely 80s I suggest going “neatly 80s” meaning don’t go too overboard unless you’re going to themed party. Keep your 80s look neat and clean by wearing a bright 80’s graphic tee and sneakers, but instead of wearing bright 80’s esque pants wear dark denim jeans and some unique frames.

Rock Star: One of the most popular looks for men is the “Rocker look” everyone from Lil’Wayne to David Beckham rocks style that make them look as if they bonified Rock Stars. The main staples for this look are fitted t-shirts and jeans that fit (no baggy jeans allowed). An Ed Hardy t-shirt and True Religion jeans are easy ways accomplish “The Rock Star”. I suggest mimicking ensembles of true rock starts like Travis Barker or mimicking the styles of guys who have the look down-pack like Lupe Fiasco.

Jim Jones & Juelz Santana Rock it out

Urban Prep: This is my personal favorite. It’s such a versatile look and truly signifies the meaning of “The Urban Gentleman”. Urban Prep is a mixture of the latest hip-hop trends and the traditional preppy look. There are a variety of ways to get the look, and is up for individual interpretation, but one simple example is to wear a fitted hat and chuck tailors/converse or unique sneakers with a button-up, sweater vest, and tie.
