It’s a shirt that’s meant to symbolise your relationship, but for some it’s a symbol of what you don’t really want to be known for.
Baroness Taylor-Hughes, the daughter of the late Lord Taylor of Carnsley, famously wore a skull t shirt with the words “My Love is a Skull” written across it.
But many men, like her father, don’t seem to understand the meaning of their shirt.
They have worn their t shirts in the past to indicate that they are open about their sexual orientation.
“It’s been used in sexual harassment cases and it’s just about being out and about and it doesn’t actually mean anything,” says the fashion designer, who has a collection of men’s t shirts.
“But it’s still quite relevant because it’s not just about sexuality.
It’s about people being who they are.”
But the t shirt isn’t just used in a more subtle way.
“The shirts are still used by men to say, ‘It’s OK to be gay, it’s OK not to be straight, it doesn-t matter’,” says Baroness Taylor.
“I think it’s an extension of that.
It shows people that they can be themselves.”
