The Social Order Shirt is made of different fabrics that represent stereotypical job classifications. The shirt fabrics represent the social gamut, from crisply-ironed white-collar positions to the sweatshirt-slouching masses of the unemployed.

Gareth Holt used statistical data as a basis for his chart-like Social Order Shirt design. The shirt is one of the many charts and graphics in the Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art, Leeds exhibition, 'Rank:' Picturing The Social Order 1516 â€" 2009.

Implications - Gareth Holt's Social Order print visualizes different social strata. These stereotypes are spot-on in my very own opinion. I hope to see more great creations from Gareth Holt very soon.
