Whether you live in a small town or a large town, finding cool t-shirts can be difficult if you don’t know where to look. Usually purchasing cool shirts from the obvious places (like major chain stores) will result in everyone you know having a copy of the same shirt. If you don’t want to be wearing the same thing as half of the town, then you have to think outside of the box. Here are a few of my favourite places to find cool t-shirts.
Buy Shirts at Events
Whether you’re at a concert to see your favourite band or watching ice hockey, you can normally pick up a shirt at the event. Buying shirts from events is usually a little more expensive than in a store, but you can console yourself that very few other people are likely to have the same shirt. Most bands will have a selection of 4-8 different men’s t-shirts so you don’t have to worry about not having enough of a selection. Pick up just one shirt from each event you go to and pretty soon you will have a collection that you can wear anywhere you go. If you purchase shirts from events, try to keep them in good condition because it’s very likely that they will be hard to replace if anything happens to them. Most concert shirts are extremely limited edition and only sold for one year or just during one tour!
Buy Shirts While On Vacation
If you’re going on vacation, then you should definitely consider bringing a little extra cash to buy a few cool t-shirts. Buying shirts while on vacation is good for a couple of things. First, you probably won’t be bringing anyone you know with you, which means you will have access to a lot of cool t-shirts they will never even have seen before. Usually, not having the same shirt as everyone else ups the cool factor by about 10 points. Plus, if you’re going somewhere special, you can always get a shirt that reminds you of the vacation. Souvenir shirts are usually priced a little high, but they are definitely worth it if you want a cool shirt. If you’re on a budget then you should take a look at the currency where you are traveling; some locations will offer cheaper shirts because their money is worth less.
Shop for Shirts Online
Shopping for cool shirts online is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but you can definitely use it to your advantage. There are literally hundreds of online stores, and it’s easy to find out where your friends shop so that you can avoid those places. If you don’t know where to start looking, you can try major retailers first and then move onto auction sites and smaller web shops. If you’re looking for a particular type of shirt, you can always put the keywords directly into your search bar. Type in words like ‘Gothic Shirt’ or ‘Surfing Shirt’ to come up with websites that sell the cool shirts you are looking for. Usually, a simple search will come up with hundreds of options. You can even search for shirts with a specific design or quote on them. If you can’t find what you are looking for, there are some websites that will allow you to design your very own t-shirt.
If you are buying shirts online then you should remember not to purchase anything from an unsafe website. Any sites that you give your personal information should be in a secure browser meaning that there is an https instead of http in the website URL. This means that your information is protected and you don’t have to worry about a hacker stealing it.
