The International T-Shirt Day is always observed on the 21st day of June annually. 2014 marks its seventh annual celebration on June 21, a Saturday. Falling on a weekend, this year’s observance anticipates more participation and support from various companies in the men’s fashion niche.

The date chosen for this event is the usually the day which ushers the summer season and the longest day in the year. This is to ensure a fun observance and wide participation from T-shirt lovers, designers, brands, companies and manufacturers globally.
