T-shirts were made with place names on them from as long ago as the early 1950's. The idea was to show everyone where you had been for your holiday. No doubt there were many who wore them to suggest they had been for an exotic holiday when in reality, they'd never gone further than Scunthorpe.

Then in the 1980's, some bright spark had the notion to put messages on your chest. These could be humorous,  protestations or perhaps adverts for pop bands or even simply the clothing manufacturer.

A few examples of ones which have caught my eye are

For her:
"My eyes are up here" (across her bosom with an arrow pointing upwards)

For him:
(Displayed on his back when riding a Harley Davidson no doubt) "If you can read this the bitch fell off"

For an ugly version of either sex:
"Drink 'til you want me"

For a very fat version of either sex:
"I beat anorexia"

The latest trend however, is for shoes to have messages to the wearer. My wife has shoes which bear the message inside them "Your feet look gorgeous".

I await the version for men's shoes -
"Your feet stink mate".
