I’m sitting in the food court of a bustling shopping center on a Saturday with a stack of paper. What’s going on with I? Tallying the number of individuals are wearing shirts, what sort of shirt they’re wearing, and about how old they are. This is my fourth Saturday leading this study at 4 distinct shopping centers.
Before I started doing this “shirt review” at the shopping centers here in Dallas, I was expecting around 30-35% individuals would be wearing a shirt. Was I ever off-base. I had no clue exactly how famous shirts really are.
To start with, who is wearing shirts? I tallied an aggregate of around 4,000 individuals more than about a month in this review. Altogether, around 60-65% were wearing shirts – double my assumptions! There was a fluctuation in the age gatherings. For those under 25-years of age, around 80-85% wore shirts. For those 25 to 40 years of age, about 60% wore shirts. Also, for those more than 40, about 35% wore shirts.
While I anticipated that the younger crowd should be wearing shirts, what I was not expecting were those ages 35 – 50 wearing them. These are for the most part guardians, money managers, and two or three grandparents. The majority of their shirts were sports or school shirts, or a brand name like Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, or Polo – nothing unrefined of offensive.
Second, what sort of shirts would they say they were wearing? I once in a while saw a similar shirt twice. There were amusing shirts, creature shirts, Christian shirts, devoted heren polo shirts, and a wide range of curiosity shirts. What’s more, I wasn’t amazed to see a couple of rough or hostile ones in the blend by the same token.
More youthful children, those somewhere in the range of 5 and 12-years of age, wore a ton of shirts. That age section was nearer to 90%. The vast majority of them had some sort of “adorable” picture or motto (like a Disney shirt), or something to do with sports. Most teens and understudies wore shirts that appear to coordinate intimately with their character.
More than anything, it became obvious that wearing a shirt is an approach to communicate one’s thoughts. Regardless of whether supporting a games group, a college, or nation, individuals wear shirts to put themselves out there and say something. Yet, a few group wear them since it looks great, it’s popular, and they’re agreeable. The shirt business is an enormous business. While I don’t have the specific insights, it made up 60% of the tops worn at the shopping centers around Dallas, TX in the course of the most recent a month.
Subsequent to showing up back home, how did I respond? I went to my wardrobe, opened the cabinet, and tallied around 25 shirts of my own. I put on my place of graduation shirt and plunked down to watch the baseball end of the season games.
