Charles Bukowski is more than just a poet or novelist, he is an icon, having gained rock star status in recent years. His creative lifestyle, heavy drinking and humor all have romantic appeal. On top of that, Bukowski was remarkably quotable, coming out with numerous pithy and witty statements in his novels, poetry, and in interviews over the years.
Choosing my favorite t-shirts was fun. I picked 5, but there are many more for sale at Amazon (and indeed at other places). I hope that you enjoy seeing my selections for the 5 Best Charles Bukowski T-Shirts.
Pee in the sink infant onesie Forgive me, but I have to say that I think this is the best Charles Bukowski t-shirt of them all! For younger Buk fans, this is an infant onesie featuring the Buk quote: “Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink,” written across the front. You can buy it in several colors but the pink works well for me! My only disappointment is that they don’t do one of these shirts in my size!
Cool black Charles Bukowski t-shirt I love the simplicity of this black Charles Bukowski t-shirt. No quotes, just a white on black photo of the great man on the front and the word: “BUKOWSKI” underneath. What more could any man or woman, ask for? (Made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton, with double needle stitching, a seamless collar, taped neck and shoulders, and a quarter turned body.)
Some people never go crazy quote This Charles Bukowski t-shirt features his: “SOME PEOPLE NEVER GO CRAZY, WHAT TRULY HORRIBLE LIVES THEY MUST LIVE” quote, using white writing on a dark background (the t-shirt is available in navy blue or black). One of Bukowski’s impressive traits was his skill at expressing himself through the use of accessible writing, often employing decptively subtle techniques, as well as humor.
I'd rather be reading Bukowski t-shirt Another simple but effective design, this shirt says: “I’d rather be reading BUKOWSKI” in black letters on a white background. It’s difficult to summarize my own feelings any better, given the joy that I’ve got from reading the great man’s work over the years! The white t-shirt is preshrunk and made from 100% cotton. The t-shirt advertised is a large adult one, but they come in other sizes too.
