The T-shirt is the cornerstone of the typical man’s wardrobe.

If it’s not the preferred clothing option for all occasions, we’d argue that it’s the preferred clothing option for most.

T-shirts are versatile. They’re comfortable. They’re cool.

And you can never have too many. There’s no such thing.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, we’re thinking about the sometimes-difficult task of giving gifts, and it occurs to us that T-shirts always make it easy. No one gets a T-shirt (an awesome one, at least) and thinks “Oh no. Another awesome T-shirt. What a bummer,” like we all did in our youth when our great aunt Delores gifted us another hat-and-mittens set for the third Christmas in a row.

Don’t be like Aunt Delores.

Give awesome T-shirts and be a holiday hero. Here are some of our favorites from our friends at Summit Racing Gifts, Clothing & Memorabilia.

Don’t like what you see? You can find hundreds of more hotrod and automotive T-shirts here.

If you can’t find something you like in there, then maybe just go with the winter hat-and-mittens set and come to terms with the fact that you’re destined for a holiday season that will feel like one big low-key rhubarb pie party with great-aunt D-Lo.

We’re talking non-spiked egg nog and Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever on Lifetime likely being the highlights of the season.

You, and the people you’re buying gifts for, deserve better. Long live hot-rodding.
