What does your favorite t-shirt say?
This t-shirt says York County. The design features two icons of York County: the White Rose and a Barbell.
This t-shirt is an attention getter.
It helps introverts. Just imagine a college student away from home. If you are a college student this will be easy. If you are not a college student then imagine a close relative who is: child, grandchild, niece, or nephew wearing this t-shirt and another student asks what it says and what does the graphic mean.
“Why is there a white rose on your t-shirt?" they will ask.
"The White Rose is a symbol of where I am from, York County. The county was named after the city of York in England," you will explain.
You could also point out that the White Rose was associated with the House of York, a branch of the royal family of England. In the 1400s, the House of York and the House of Lancaster, using the Red Rose as a symbol, fought a civil war called the War of the Roses. A rivalry that continues even in the New World.
"What is with the dumbbell?", they might ask.
"That is a barbell. The York Barbell Company manufactures exercise equipment used across the world," you will answer.
You could continue to discuss how Bob Hoffman, the founder of the York Barbell Company, is considered a pioneer in sport of Weightlifting. And not just in America but worldwide Weightlifting. Not bad for a guy who started out making oil burners.
You make a connection that would have otherwise just slipped away.
Personally, I went to college in Hartford, CT and wearing my Flyers, Phillies, and Eagles gear was enough to stand out and pique other people’s interest.
