Some thoughts on beer clothing
MS reader Brad S sent me an intriguing email the other day:
I recently had a discussion with my roommates about bar/beer/alcohol-based merchandise, such as shirts, hats and what have you.
I am of the opinion that unless it's a beer/brand of liquor that you couldn't live without, why flaunt it?
Also, even if bar merch is acceptable to most, is there a point where one could take their booze pride a little too far?
I'm talking Corona wear, here. I've seen people in rocking a Corona hat, tank top and multicolored corona shorts at the same time. To me it's tacky.
Here's what I think ...
Personally, I think rocking a dirty Budweiser ball cap sends a pretty clear message about who you are and where you're coming from (unless you're wearing it ironically).
Yes, wearing all that Corona gear is tacky and can make for a bad first impression. But wearing a T-Shirt advertising an obscure but delicious beer such as San Miguel is totally acceptable. At least in my opinion.
I see no need to support the alcoholic beverages I imbibe by purchasing T-shirts. I support them buy purchasing the products themselves.
However, I do have a Coors Light T-shirt, because it is made of super thin, super light and soft material.
