You can tell a lot from a man's shirt: they're where "blue collar" and "white collar" class descriptions came from, and those idiots who thought that maybe you had some fear before, well they're looking pretty silly now, aren't they? Aren't they?! For tees that tell people you're from the greatest city ever with a giant bell, check out Adelphia Apparel.
A Philly-based shirting concern slapping convo-starting 'hood-centric slogans onto super-soft tees, this AA'll actually make you more interesting at parties, thanks to designs like:
Hoods: This jumble of block text presents a cross-section of neighborhood names in a stately serif font, letting denizens of Newbold and Southwark sport their digs on their chest, just like the folks of Frankford, if they were capable of wearing shirts with sleeves on them.
Shore: This jawn's sparsely designed with an outline of coastal Jersey and "shore" written in cursive along the NY border, recalling a time on the Shore when things were simpler, and you could still reasonably name your daughter Snooki.
BSL: A take on the iconography of a pre-AT&T SEPTA map listing all the stops, this guy's perfect for anyone riding the orange line, aka a mid-'80s Richard Pryor experimenting with Tang.
Other tees to boost your city-oriented swag include a washed-out homage to the skyline and a pixelated portrayal of the Ben Franklin Bridge, named after a man who eschewed both blue collar and white collar for "hilariously silly ruffle collar".
