Four of the Most Popular Custom Tees of 2014

Cheap custom shirts

It’s been a pretty big year for custom tees. In 2014, we not only saw a number of celebrities buying weirdly awesome custom tees, but a few inspired individuals creating their own cheap custom tee shirts with some rather odd images on them.

Let’s take a look back at the year in tee shirts.

Putin Tee Shirt.

Back in November, Putin tee shirts were all the craze in Russia. Moscow’s massive GUM megastore was selling 15 different prints of the world leader in no nonsense poses with such slogans as “The Most Polite Man.” As many as 5,000 of the shirts were flying off the shelves at the height of their popularity, and even famous actor Mickey Rourke got in on the action.

Horrifyingly Ugly World Cup Tee Shirt.

For the 2014 World Cup, world renowned fashion brand Versace released a special tee shirt featuring a — for lack of a better word — fanfare of Brazilian and soccer imagery. The shirt became an international sensation not only for its overwhelming, garrish imagery, but also for its price tag. Versace was selling the hideous shirt for a whopping $690 a pop.

Mugshot Custom Tee.

And who could forget about the drunk driver from Maine who made a custom tee with his own mugshot on it? Last June, 19-year-old Robert Burt was arrested for drunk driving, and sentenced to spend 48 hours in jail. Of all the cheap custom tees he could have made from the “momentous” occasion, Burt decided to put the mugshot from his initial arrest on a custom tee, and wore it while getting his new mugshot in a rather meta fashion statement.

“I Can’t Breathe Custom Tees.

Lastly, there were the “I Can’t Breathe” tees sported by many who were protesting the racism and police brutality problems affecting the nation. Sports superstars, like LeBron James, even took to wearing “I Can’t Breathe” tees. Unfortunately, a woman from Illinois — who is in no way related to Eric Garner whose dying words were “I can’t breathe” — is attempting to trademark the phrase, though it seems unlikely she’ll be able to cash in on the tragedy.

With so many amazing tee shirts being created and worn in 2014, it’ll be interesting to see what 2015 has in store. Who knows? Maybe one of your own custom tees will take off and become the hit shirt of the new year. Read this website for more information.
