I Love Tehran Shirts

The message is simple and clear, and graphic designer Takin Aghdashloo’s I Love Tehran shirt embodies the kind of effusive Iran-fondness we like to get behind. If it looks familiar, that’s probably because blogger Hossein Derakhshan has worn it a bunch, once on Canadian TV (case in point: see the photo in this Pars Arts post from early last week), and it’s had some other press. We’ve wanted one for a few months now but were holding off for women’s sizes, which appeared in January.

Takin told us they’re going to have “more colors and 1-2 more designs” later this year, so we’ll keep you posted. Not only do we love this shirt, we love that at $25 a pop, you don’t have to break the bank to get one. Another plus? It’s American Apparel so there’s no sweatshop guilt, and some of the proceeds go to an Iranian charity for children. Buy yours right here.
