Skateboarding, more commonly referred to simply as skating, is more than just a hobby. Skating is a lifestyle. Skaters have a lot more in common than just skateboarding, they have similar views and attitudes. Skaters also have their own style when it comes to clothing. This includes shoes, jeans, and hats, but perhaps most important is the skate shirt. So what make a shirt a “skate shirt,” and what makes a skate shirt a good one? |
Skate shirts are usually simple. They're not about elaborate designs or artwork. They are often a solid colored t-shirt with a simple graphic, logo, or a few words. You won't find any embroidery, and not many patterns. If there is a pattern, it's a simple one. The t-shirt sends the message that skaters care more about relaxation and comfort than maintaining some level social prestige.
Skate shirts also have simple, usually bright colors. Solid blues, yellows, greens, and oranges are staples for skate shirts. The bright colors reflect the generally positive and carefree attitude associated with the skater lifestyle.
The art found on skate shirts is usually unique. Not only the content of the images, but the artistic style with which they're composed isn't what you'd normally expect to find on a t-shirt. Some images look like they're out of a comic strip, or were drawn on a notebook paper, or came straight out of an old 8-bit video game.
Skate shirts truly are a great representation of a lifestyle that few understand.
