Choosing your St. Patrick's Day outfit requires serious thought. There will be photos of you on the Internet (you might even be in this slide show next year). You might wake up in a strange place without your wallet, and need to hitch a ride home from a stranger. And when you're face down in the gutter, you'll want the passerby who steps over your inert form to understand one thing: You're not just another drunk fool on a Saturday night. This (point to yourself while circling your hand) is an Irish thing.
Given the gravity of the situation, we looked through some of our old St. Patrick's Day photos, as well as funnyirishtshirts.com, for sartorial inspiration. We're now sharing our finds with you, in the hopes that you will give careful consideration to what your T-shirt will communicate when you no longer can.
