Part 1 (Interview)
1. Do you like wearing t-shirts?
Yes, I love to wear them! They’re so comfortable and versatile. For example, they can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
2. How often do you wear t-shirts?
I tend to wear them every day after work. They are the most comfortable thing to wear after having to wear professional clothes at work.
3. What kind of t-shirts do you wear for different occasions?
When I’m going out with friends, I usually opt for tees that make a bold statement about who I am, and what I believe in, such as political or social justice messages, or slogans that represent my identity and values. When I’m casually lounging around the house, my favorite t-shirt choice is something cosy and oversized.
4. Have you ever bought a t-shirt as a souvenir from a place you visited?
Yes! Whenever I go on vacation, buying a unique souvenir t-shirt has become one of my go-to activities, because it’s such a fun way to bring something back from my travels, as a reminder of the good times.
5. What do you think of t-shirts with slogans or messages on them?
I think they’re really great for making bold statements about what matters most to us personally and politically. Plus there are some really creative slogans and designs out there!
6. Do you think t-shirts are comfortable to wear?
Definitely yes! Cotton is a great fabric, because it makes for such breathable comfort no matter what season it is. Also, there are so many styles and fits now, that pretty much anybody can find something that suits their own preferences.
7. Do you prefer short-sleeved or long-sleeved t-shirts?
It really depends on what look and feel I’m going for, and also on the weather and occasion… but generally speaking I’d say short sleeved, since those give me more flexibility.
