For March 5th, at Tcritic we recall a controversial historical icon in life and death – Joseph Stalin, who died on March 5, 1953. Makes sense that someone as notorious as Stalin would spawn an explosion of t-shirts bearing his image. Interesting to see how a cultural revolution turned into a fashion icon – imagine wearing a t-shirt in the 1960s bearing communist propaganda!
Before we get to the oldies (and goodies), a more recent addition to my collection of communist themed shirts is from Headline Shirts, I Hammer/Sickle the 80s.
I’d rate the next 3 t-shirts my favourite communist t-shirts ever, in order of amazingness. Because of the magnitude of amazingness, i have already blogged about them – consider this a tribute post.
1.) RTMF Mao – wrote about this in 2006 but they are publicizing a reprint soon
3.) The Communist Party
(This one is Threadless’ best selling design. Check it out, if you haven’t already seen it).
