Boys' graphic tees are the perfect choice for kids who want to express their likes while remaining comfortable. Tees come in lots of colors, with designs ranging from sports to music to favorite movies. Your kids will love wearing their thredUP tees to school and for play.
Graphic tees gained popularity in the late 1930s and early 1940s, when characters in "The Wizard of Oz" appeared onscreen wearing graphic tees (green ones that said "OZ" on them) and when Life Magazine featured a cover photo of a person wearing a graphic tee the next year. Since then, they've become a popular way to express support for causes, an affinity for pop culture, and more.
How to Wear Graphic Tees
These popular tees are easy to wear because they pair with lots of other clothes. The most common way to wear a graphic tee is to pair it with jeans or shorts and simple shoes like kicks, the same way your kids would do with boys' tank tops. Boys can also dress up graphic tees by wearing them beneath a blazer and with a pair of khakis. For parents who have kids who don't like to get dressed up, pairing a tee with a blazer might be the perfect solution.
Winter won't stop your kids from wearing graphic tees, either. Layer a graphic tee over a long-sleeved shirt or two to keep them warm without covering up the design on the graphic tee. At thredUP you can find long-sleeved tees with great prints on them, too, so your kids will have fashionable items to wear year round. We even have some graphic hoodies for those really cold days.

At thredUP you'll find lots of graphic tees from famous brands like Old Navy. We love Old Navy boys' T-shirts because they're classic in look and fit.
