All across the nation, Bob Marley t-shirts are making a huge comeback into popular culture. The latest craze has high school students, college kids and recent graduates donning that timeless iconic face. But it doesn’t stop there, as this trend also has the 30 and 40 year old crowd dusting off their old vintage Rastafarian, reggae, and Marley t-shirts which have become once again oh so popular.
It doesn’t take much more than a trip down to your local community college to see just how strongly this movement is catching on. Its nearly impossible to stroll the entire way around campus without seeing at least a few Bob Marley t-shirts. High school students are at times being persecuted as well as singled out by school administration because of Marley’s well known association with marijuana. However, these authority figures should take a deeper look at the message which those who support Marley are really attempting to convey.
The fact that Bob Marley apparel is on the upward rise, comes as no shock to anyone who is familiar with the man himself. People are supporting and paying tribute to more than merely a man or an artist. They are paying homage to the thoughts and ideas which Marley stood for. These values of peace, love, and harmony have spread and taken deep root in parts of our culture. And thanks to this icon, they continue to be spread through his music and his memory.
Are you a fan who has those Bob Marley t-shirts stuff away somewhere in the closet? If that is the case, you may want to consider digging it up and joining in as an entirely new generation takes up the values and ideals which he so kindly left for us to consider.
