138 minimal custom t-shirt ideas

Use these minimalist t-shirt design ideas to create an original style

Ever since Giorgio Armani popularised the minimalist aesthetic, fashionistas began to equate minimalism with designer labels. This is a little disingenuous. Giorgio Armani is a minimalist icon, not because he built an affluent designer label, but because he stayed true to his minimal aesthetic during the 1980s when others were chasing excess.

Today, the masses wear designer outfits. In contrast, genuine minimalism is marked by a clear sense of purpose. Intentionality. By removing everything unnecessary, we can highlight our values and passions —creating our own unique style. So true minimalism can never look the exact same for two people. You can’t buy it off the rack or with a credit card. You have to create it yourself.man pointing at tshirt
