Threadless is a hugely popular online apparel store mostly famous for its creative t-shirt designs. What is unique about it is that members from all over the world submit designs online, which are then put to a public vote. Almost all of the submissions are brilliant, because they are mainly the work of professional designers or very talented passionates, but only a small percentage of submitted designs are selected for printing and sold through the store. This process ensures a higher quality of the final product, design version of peer review in scientific journals.
I have been following submissions to the store for a while and have noticed that quite a substantial number of designs that end up being sold on Threadless are inspired by medicine, anatomy, dentistry, science, and such. At the same time, I have also been following fashion styles of numerous physicians and scientists, and let me tell you it is a sore sight for eyes 🙂 So many people in our profession have literally no sense of aesthetics. To help them (help us) and those who have to interact with them (us), I selected some of the t-shirts inspired by medical sciences from the Threadless catalog. Just imagine how cool you would look on monday morning when you come to your lab or hospital department. You could literally inspire people, make them smile and light up. Isn’t that the best medicine?
