New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2015

The annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is not only a celebration of the many many types of music that mix here in the Crescent City, it also celebrates Louisiana culture from photography to blacksmiths to of course, the t-shirt. They always sell a wide range of styles and designs and it is interesting to see what they come up with each year. It is also an yearly window into trends within our industry both by what they are selling (today’s post) and what people are wearing (tomorrow’s post.)

 

 

Obligatory in some Jazz Fest shirts is a crawfish and a gator, usually done well.

As the years go by for Jazz Fest you can track garment trends. An on-going trend in our industry is thinner and thinner, softer and softer garments. A more recent trend is lots of heathered shirts, even heathered neons.
