Collecting Destination Tee Shirts

Collecting tee shirts from travel destinations all over the country and the world is a fun and enjoyable way to remember the wonderful locations you have visited during vacations, business trips, family outings or tours. These shirt collections become a sort of photo album you can wear, with all of your shirts reminding you of all the fun adventures you had in a particular place.

Whether they contain funny messages, destination images, or local messages from a unique place that you visited, you can turn your shirt drawer into a walk down memory lane and have a cool collection as a conversation starter every time you wear it. Many people take great pride in their shirt collection, carefully selecting one that best fits their personality and most accurately reminds them of the particular place that it represents. Having at least one shirt from each location visited is a source of pride for many seasoned travelers, and along with postcards, key chains and other classic choices for memorabilia, shirts can become a sentimental object, inspiring fond memories of romantic getaways, group trips or all the wonderful people you met on a vacation someplace.

These shirts can also become a great conversation starter, since whenever you wear your shirt from a particular travel destination you are telling the world that you have some kind of special connection or relationship to that location. On a trip to North Carolina you may have picked up a Blue Ridge image to commemorate your drive along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, or Chimney Rock design to tell the world you made it to the top of that amazing geological formation.

If you happen to be wearing your shirt while out and about doing errands, and someone else who has visited those places sees the destination, it is bound to inspire a sense of nostalgia that will perhaps make you a new friend and offer the chance to share your unique perspective and personal stories of the place your shirt represents.

A shirt collection quite often becomes a very special thing to someone who travels a lot or to someone who feels like traveling is an important part of who they are. Special care is often taken to preserve the tee shirts as long as possible, such as washing on a gentle cycle in cool water to prevent fading and making sure that they don’t do messy work such as painting or gardening in their memorabilia shirts. On the other hand, some people like to wear their tees as much as possible to ensure that they get the most exposure and the break-in to that soft, comfortable, old tee shirt feel.
