Che Guevara shirts have been in enormous
demand lately. It was no wonder after the phenomenal epic adventure
of Guevara and his companion, Alberto Granado was released.
In The Motorcycle Diaries, a tale of Guevara’s journey
over the course of eight months and 8,000 miles, what starts
out as a lark becomes a profound journey of discovery. The film
made Guevara’s face and name more well-known and the demand
for Che Guevara t-shirts went up dramatically.
Once the movie came out and more people began
to realize the impact this man had on Cuba, Che Guevara
clothing were recognizably everywhere. Many people, especially
the younger generation of teenagers, became big fans of the
man who would have become one Time magazine's "Icons of
the Century". They showed their support by sporting Che
Guevara shirts. Even Walter Salles, the director of the movie
"The Motorcycle Diaries" was awed by Che Guevara explaining
that "I was very moved by the intertwining of this personal
search with one that had a larger meaning for all of us who
come from those latitudes".
Che Guevara has made a little revolution of
his own here in the United States as seen with the vast amount
of Che Guevara t-shirts and Che Guevara clothing. Many people
who do not recognize the man they see in the Che Guevara shirts
will soon be aware of his past existence and the impact he made
in South America. As director Walter Salles said "The beauty
of the journey lies in the fact that Ernesto and Alberto's perception
of the world changed; they didn't refuse to see. In turn, they
would go on to try to change the world, going by what they had
come to understand on this journey."
