As its name suggests, the ‘My Life in Shirts’ infographic tells the story of blogger and illustrator Lunchbreath’s life through clothing. The illustration is easy to relate to for anyone who identifies periods of their life with clothing they wore at the time.
‘My Life in Shirts’ is undeniably nostalgic and self-deprecating; such sentiment is not uncommon when looking back at one’s own story: crappy jobs, good jobs, nice relationships, bad relationships, nice shirts, inexcusably awful shirts, hot pants, cold pants and so forth.
Despite the idiosyncratic focus of ‘My Life in Shirts’—it tells the story of only its creator’s life—it has wide appeal. This should not be too surprising though. Eras of pop culture at large are routinely and almost inseparably associated with styles of clothing.
