Sh*t Guys Should Know About Fashion - #6

From my personal experience, fashion can be pretty hard to follow if you don’t know what people are talking about. So I thought that starting the Sh*t Guys Should Know About Fashion segment would be a great way to unravel most of the jargon you hear or read about fashion. 

If you’ve got any confusing terms to add to the list, just drop them in the comments section and I’ll be happy to help!

Today’s mystery fashion term is:

Dye Sublimation Tees are printed with a high-temperature printing process using permanent dyes that really 
sink into the fabric. The images come out a lot clearer and can be more detailed than your regular tee. 

One thing I dislike about printed tops is the way they start to peel or fade after a couple washes. Sublimation prints are great because they are permanent. I really love the soft, worn-out effect these t-shirts have, I think that it’s a trend that will really catch on with lovers of vintage or 2nd hand clothing. 

If you’re an avid user of Tumblr like me, you might have come across Sexy-Sweaters, a blog dedicated to sweaters with all-over prints.  It’s run by friends, Alec and Greta and their blog boasts fans from around the world. Unfortunately, their designs only exist on-screen but they have plans to start selling them for real. Here are some of my favourite Sexy-Sweaters:
