Default Which of these T shirt designs would you buy and identify with as a man?

Here are 7 T shirt design concepts, pleaRse tell me which one you would most likely buy, wear and identify with as it's a passion or priorioty of yours.


1. A T shirt with a rainbow design to significy inclusion, also the LGBTQ community.

2. T shirts that represent your anti establishment values like
"Anti whatever is popular", "The blacksheep of the lot"

3. T shirt to signify that you have been through some thick stuff or adversity in your life and you are damn proud of it. SO you want to rep it

Like "Still standing, when I should be crawling"
Been through the ringer to be here.
Through hook and crook, I stand here today

4. Asian, Samari, Roman numeral symbols, characters with an ancient inspirational quote.

5. One word designs like "Honour", "Pride", "Self aware", "empowered"

6. Word designs that describe who you are like "BBQ Boss" , "Math Junkie", Gamer Freak, Code and Coffee addict

7. A workout T with an icon of a wolf with a motivational saying like
"Watch out here I come", or "Never back down", "Be the Alpha"

I'm personally passionate about and have been through adversity, am very anti mainstream and love the idea of mental toughness, So for me those designs would resonate.

Just doing a product test here .

Unlikely... I don't do public protests.

Nope... because that would be a lie.

Absolutely not! I would prefer the wolf on its own.

Niches ... there are all sorts of niches. The more knowledge you have of a niche the more successfully you can connect with its members. And if you can appropriately apply humor to your niches, then you are golden. And by "appropriately" I do not mean safely or non-offensively; I mean appropriate for the audience, so as satiric, dark, scatological, or innocent as the niche requires. Do NOT hold back. Weak, outsider imitation of insider humor and identity may sell to well-meaning gift buyers, but they are unlikely to escape the T-shirt drawer. Of course, a sale is a sale, but if you want to develop an enthusiastic base of repeat customers, then BE THE NICHE, not the weak imitation.

Beyond, that, I would suggest "longer tail" ideas, ideas beyond the obvious surface level that has already been done a billion times for every niche. Be it the concept, the art, the humorous twist, bring something new, or at least very well done, to the table.

As to my fit to your 7 above, they are mostly not my thing. But you shouldn't be asking a bunch of T-shirt printers about what shirts they like, you should be targeting the actual niches you wish to sell to. Of course, the only opinion that really matters is when they give you their money :-)

Enjoy, the journey.

Too often we fall in love with our ideas and lose our way.
Doing a test and placing value on responses that shock your sensibilities is a smart thing. Remember, YOU are not your customer.
1. Nyet
2. If the protest message is similar to "Don't vote! It just encourages them." I vote yes. There are MANY messages that resonate more to be recognized by the viewer more than the wearer. And isn't that the point?
3. Many like messages like "battle injured veteran." Not my cup of tea BUT 'I support WOUNDED WARRIORS" is a message that is engaging.
4. W/o a quote the vote is no. If the quote is coexist it still a no.
5. Essentially the same as #3
6. You have a winner
7. Same as 6. Calling the tribe.

Now, regarding the 'as a man' qualifier. What you ares asking is a generational question. Some generations were taught respect as a man is earned while others believe it come with participation awards. Which one do you think favor unicorns?

2 - yes

like NoXid said, you are asking the wrong people

without movement there is no journey, let the public/customers be the push/pull
