Around 1983, there was a surge in popularity of oversize T-Shirts with slogans on the front. One of the earliest I remember was inspired by the band Frankie Goes To Hollywood - it said something like "Frankie Says: War! Hide Yourself". This was followed by variations on the "name Says: whatever" formula, and even shirts that answered back to earlier slogans - "Spandau Says: Frankie Goes To Hospital" is one that sticks in my mind. Pretty soon there were all kinds of sayings and single words you could wear.
I had a sleeveless shirt that I really liked, it was blue and white, made to look as if it was splattered with paint, and large letters that said "TERRE". My mum washed it, but accidentally put a red shirt in the same load, and my shirt came out purple and pale pink. She was quite relieved when I decided that it looked even better than the original blue and white. I think I still have that shirt somewhere.
