Fashion Phenomenon: t-shirts with wolves printed on them.

I don’t know how things are in other countries, but here in the states you may from time to time notice certain, particular attire involving (oft oversized) t-shirts with wolf-themed artwork. Usually, these wolves are printed large enough to cover the entire front of the shirt, sometimes as a single wolf portrait or maybe as some forested landscape with a wolf howling at the moon, or occasionally with a wolf’s image inside the moon--or any variation thereof.

Such shirts can commonly be acquired at the following retailers: truck stops, wildlife park gift shops, Indian casino/hotel gift shops, camping/sporting good stores, thrift store outlets, seasonal fairground clothing stands, yard sales, Walmart. Or sometimes you can find them in a box, stashed away in an abandoned bus out in the woods. In any event, wearing a wolf shirt takes a special kind of self-confidence. It says a lot about who you are, and who you aren’t. Some may argue that wolf shirts are tacky; they know not what they speak – wolf shirts are exciting! They’re an instant visual statement. Walking into a room wearing a wolf shirt is 2nd only to walking into a room with an actual goddamn wolf! Everyone is instantly aware of you, may fear you perhaps; women, especially, will find you intriguing.

Don’t say no to the wolf shirt.
