I still like the concept of Retro Campaigns, creating shirts based on old political campaigns from America’s past. Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and William Henry Harrison receive the treatment this time around. I think that I prefer the more modern poliical characters simply because we all know that Abe and Teddy didn’t use t-shirts to promote their campaigns, so whilst these tees are using graphics that were actually used (right?), they somehow feel less credible than the designs that were used as t-shirts, though that may partially be because there have been a lot of iconic t-shirt designs that have come from US political campaigns in the 60s and 70s.
