The literary world has experienced a bit of a revival in popularity in the world of fashion in recent times; the ‘nerdy is cool’ look certainly doing its bit in bringing back authors and creators into the limelight. With the revival in popularity ever on the horizon, more and more creators have jumped on the bandwagon of expression and innovation as they churn out more and more good-looking pieces of clothing for their audiences. Combining quips, quotes and references in clever and ‘out-there’ manners, the choice available to any buddy literary fan has never been better.
Below are some of the hottest shirts available to anyone hoping to scoop in on the world of fashion’s very newest inclusions.
Paying homage to the 1925 novel by Scott Fitzgerald, this t-shirt is the epitome of the jazz and swing of 1920s America. The story of the enigmatic and slightly mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby, Fitzgerald's novel has spawned one of the most critically and commercially adored films ever when Leonardo Di Caprio took to Gatsby's character in 2013. Encapsulating idealism, challenges of changing and the scrutiny of the American Dream, it is a story that is as engrossing as it is very relatable.
This design features all the hallmarks of a 1920s piece of clothing, providing any fan of the story with a real piece of authentic history to it. Available in a vast variety of colours, designs and sizes, it is the perfect way of showing off your admiration towards both Fitzgerald's story, and the whole era of the swinging twenties as a whole.
Designed by the Bathroom Wall T-Shirts company, this shirt pays homage to Chuck Palahniuk's novel that became a infamous and global hit through the Fight Club movie. The anti-globalist and consumerist message of the film is brilliantly executed in the layout and design of the shirt, relaying the rules and ideals of Project Mayhem right across the fabric. Complete with the trademark and iconic smiley face, the contrast of red and yellow against black really ties together a striking and memorable piece of clothing.
Available in five different forms, four different colours and eight different sizes from small to XXXXX-large, the make up of the shirt is as durable as it is comfortable. Guaranteed for a high quality deliverance, it is the perfect shirt to wear in a consumer-heavy, conglomerate world.
Moby Dick is one of the best loved and well known pieces of literature to come out of the USA and has continued to win over critics and fans alike even today. Spawning an equally loved series of adaptations across all forms of mass media, it is clear that this whale has made a mark on the world.
This homage to the Moby Dick name pays all the hallmarks that any fan of the story will be more than familiar with. From the Massachusetts location to Captain's Ahab's name, the shirt brings in a level of humor and originality that will make it stand out to anything else on the market. Available in a variety of colours and a multitude of sizes for any fan out there, there are plenty of options from hoodies to tank tops that allow buyers to customise the shirt their way.
Who doesn't remember reading Harper Lee's American Masterpiece, "To Kill a Mockingbird" in primary school and wishing Atticus Finch were YOUR dad?! As a character he is best known as the voice of morality in a very complicated story of race, jurist prudence, and small town Americana. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
For less than $20 you can cleverly reference the law firm of Mr. Finch... and check the literary refinement of those you encounter!
Available in a huge variety of sizes and styles. Also available as a hoodie in adult and youth sizes here.
Fun Fact: This would make a GREAT gift for English Teachers and Lawyers alike...
