Che t-shirts

Highly controversial in life, Che Guevara has taken on an iconic status in death. Achieving fame and notoriety as a Marxist revolutionary until his death in 1967, he has since become a symbol in popular culture for all thing anti-establishment in the same was as James Dean since his early death. Che's face adorns a wide variety of items, not least the everyday t-shirt. Even today Che's face can be seen on t-shirts for men and women throughout the world. The most commonly used shot is based on the facial caricature by Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick (pictured) which has undergone countless revisions and reinterpretations but always remains unmistakably Che.
