According to my wife, I have “_too many t-shirts_” (as if that was a thing).
Turns out that’s far from accurate since I don’t even have a hundred t-shirt:
I barely have 80 of them.
And I know that because I counted them when I made the important decision to
switch from them all being folded on shelves to them being all on hangers.
While sorting through my t-shirts, I found a couple, ahem, “collector’s items”
that I haven’t worn in decades… like one I got for 3dsmax 4’s release in 2000
back when Discreet was the publisher (remember when Autodesk didn’t own
everything?), or the one I got with Wing Commander 3’s “premier” edition (which
came in a replica of a 35mm film case, with a “Behind the Scenes” VHS tape!).
Anyway, along the way, I started collecting a few stats about my t-shirt
collection and, well, this is my blog, so if I want to post completely useless
graphs about the type of t-shirts I own, this is definitely the only place where
I can do so without having to justify anything!
Without further ado, here it is:
The chart is organized by theme, so some t-shirts are sometimes counted multiple
times – there’s no point adding the numbers together. A funny t-shirt about
Cthulhu would be counted in “Funny” and “H.P. Lovecraft”.
Some more notes:
- “Company/corporate” are generally t-shirts I got for free through work or some
- “Convention”, however, are some t-shirts that I bought at a convention and
are about that convention (both t-shirts here are actually for VanCAF).
- “School” are t-shirts I got at school (high-school or university). In most
cases, I actually helped design those t-shirts!
- The rest should be pretty self-explanatory.
Of course, these stats are going to get out of date pretty quickly since, now
that I know I don’t have a hundred t-shirts yet, I might go a shopping spree.
Don’t tell my wife…
