Urban Clothing: The Perfect Men’s T-shirts For 2011
Urban clothing isn’t a new fashion statement; it’s simply evolved over the years to create the hip hop fashion we see today. Most urban fashion is colorful, bold and presents an “in your face” attitude. Clothing is a great way for people to express their personal style, opinions and beliefs without necessarily saying a single word.
Much of 2005-2009 hip hop fashion included baggy jeans with oversized shirts. 2011 seems to be bringing a breath of fresh air into a nearly-stale fashion environment. New styles are primarily dark with bright, flashy designs. Jeans in the 2011 clothing lines are more personally fitting, but still loose enough to be comfortable. Pocket and hip designs and rivets offer just enough variety to be unique.
People involved in the hip hop genre are often viewed as being outspoken and opinionated. Many of the 2011 urban clothing options for men include specific charity logos recognized world-wide. More people are buying clothes that truly do make a statement and support their favorite charity or foundation.
Designer T-Shirts for 2011
Each year brings new ideas and designs for urban wear. Full frontal printed designs have been very popular for the last few years. Some printing on the back and shoulders brought some variety over the last couple of years. Skulls, bones, feathers, band names, and movie and game graphics make incredible clothing designs.
Most 2011 collections are including full print t-shirts; the more artwork the better? The variety of men’s t-shirts in most 2011 collections is simply amazing. Hustler, Affliction and Rocawear are three of the top brands offering new designs for 2011.
Hustler isn’t just a top-selling magazine; it is also one of the biggest names in popular urban clothing and men’s t-shirts. Top hip hop celebrities like Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z have been photographed in Hustler apparel. Bright colors and hot images make Hustler apparel some of the most popular in urban clothing.
Affliction is well-known for their hot and trendy clothing lines for both men and women. Air brushed affects, skulls and other graphic designs are very popular choices for men. Men’s t-shirts from Affliction cost between $ 40 and $ 60, depending on design and size.
Rocawear was founded in 1999 by Damon Dash and Jay-Z; you just can’t go wrong with urban clothing with those credentials. The lineup of men’s t-shirts for 2011 is said to be one of the hottest tickets in town. Sports tees to dressy-casual and winter wear, Rocawear has it.
Design Your Own
Finding the perfect shirt can be a challenge. Great urban t-shirts sell quickly and before you realize it, everyone in town has the same shirt. Anyone with artistic talent and a computer can design incredible t-shirts at websites like CafePress, Zazzle and SpreadShirts. All you do is design, upload and order.
Brand and Logo Styles
Brands and logos will forever remain popular urban t-shirt designs. Armani, Abercrombie, Affliction and Coogi are among the top-selling brand and logo t-shirt styles. Authentic logo t-shirts go a long way in proving you’re serious about fashion and are willing to chuck some dough at your wardrobe. Leave the house feeling like a million dollars, because you look awesome and you know it.
