This is what 1,000 band t-shirts looks like. (larger view)
This is blogger Isac Walter of L.A.’s Echo Park and he’s standing in middle of the 1,000 t-shirts, mostly from rock bands, that he’s worn over the past few years.
Starting in July 2011, he challenged himself to wear a different band tee each day for 500 days. He accomplished that, kept on going, and then on April 7th, 2014, he hit a new record: 1,000 different shirts, never wearing the same one twice. He calls himself a “Band T-Shirt Archivist” and his blog is called Minor Thread (a nod to early hardcore punk band, Minor Threat), and on it, you can see all 1,000 (actually 1,002) shirts.
“T-shirts are like an analog version of social media and social networking. It’s amazing how I can wear a certain t-shirt out and immediately connect with people I’ve never met before. A band shirt alone can initiate new conversations and new friendships.”
Here’s a video he made that shows the first year’s worth of t-shirts:
