I've just placed an order for two t-shirts.
One of which is the all-popular "Now that's Dope" and the other is the older "Relax and Dream of Nothing."
Looking back on past bought t-shirts ,and counting the number of ones I still have, made me realize how damn impulsive I was with buying threadless t-shirts.
It's so darn intoxicating!
You can just click! click! click! and you're done.
$29.50 later and you're that much closer to a couple brand new t-shirts with pretty cool pictures on them that may or may not make your friends laugh. Grade A cool, right?
But was it worth it?
Now that I'm past my fanatic buying-spree phase, I'd have to say, unfortunately, for the most part, no.
But I have put the ones I don't like any more to good use by giving them to second-hand stores and friends who can't afford them.
Important tips I'd suggest are:
Look at the damn shirt for a while. Do you like it, or are you caught up in the fact that's it's new and makes you giggle?
Picture yourself in a crowd of people wearing it. Will anyone stare at you (don't deny it, we ALL care what people think and if you try to argue with me you've just proved my statement).
If it's something like "Marshmallow Factory" realizeyour humour is only directed to a certain crowd.
Consider yourself in half a year liking this shirt?
Are you in an age group appropriate for even wearing that shirt? I'm serious. It's not a big thing but still a 55 year old wearing "The Morning After" isn't as funny as a 17 year-old.
It's real money going towards real things
that you may not even like a year down the road.
And this may be me being a serious stick up the ass stickler but you're spending your money, your parent's money, who-ever, on something that you may or may not have liked in the first place.
