How do you guys feel about LDS Clothing?!

I would never wear clothing items that advertised I was Mormon. It's not an insecurity thing, it's just not me. I actually don't wear clothing period that has words or phrases on them. It's just tacky to me. But if I were put into a "Mormon school" so to speak, like the equivalent of attending a Catholic school, I'd rather have the phrase that Dravin suggested than "I can't, I'm Mormon". What a cop out.

I was curious if anyone wore any lds specific t-shirts? Like the "I can't, I'm Mormon" or "I love LDS girls/guys".

they can be fun. sometimes they can be overdone.

The shirt i've got has a picture of a couple missionaries walking a long with a bunch of buff angels protecting them from all sorts of different things, with the a D&C quote beneath it.

While not a shirt, ilike the license plate that has : RULDS2

My wife has one of those "unejeekated" tags...Families are Forever..RULDS2 tags....People often ask her what it means...good conversation starter.

My sons and I often wear the Youth Conference t-shirts with CTR and BOM scriptures and very manly Nephites on them to the gym....our gym is full of Baptists and preachers.

The girl with the long hair advertising the "I can't, I'm Mormon" shirt is perhaps one of the hottest girls I have ever seen in my entire life. She should be a model if she isn't already one.

One T-shirt I really enjoyed was one that showed a picture of three rather tough / buff looking guys and the caption said - Stripling Warriors...Mama's Boys !

I also got a T-shirt one year when I was a camp councilor that I really liked. It showed the Young Women's logo (young woman / flaming torch) and surrounding the logo were the words - Stand For Truth And Righteousness. I've kept and worn that one for almost 20 years. Love it!

I agree with the general opinion about the "I Can't, I'm Mormon" shirt, but in it's defense. The guy who came up with the phrase and started printing it on t-shirts said that in high school when he'd be asked to drink or smoke or something if he'd tell them that he just doesn't drink/smoke, they'd keep trying to convince him it wasn't a big deal to and pressuring him into doing it, but if he said "I can't, I'm Mormon", they'd instantly understand and stop. So it's more of a homage to that rather than a message that he's saying he's not able to do something because he's Mormon. and I used to have a "I love Mormon Girls" shirt, and it was pretty awesome

I totally get that. I still think the phrase should be "I won't; I'm Mormon." The use of "can't" implies that agency has been removed and the wearer of the shirt is a robot. The use of "won't" denotes an active choice.

I've never seen an actual license plate with that, but I've seen bumper stickers and license plate frames with that on it. I hate them. They make me want to say, "R U unejeekated 2?"
