Brandon Ferderer Wants You To Throw Away Your Flip-Flops and Put On Clothes That Fit You

Growing up, Brandon Ferderer wore a lot of shirts with his own picture on them.

The 36-year-old Arizona State University Hugh Downs School of Human Communication instructor would get someone to take a photograph of him, and then he'd put it on a T-shirt. "I did that into my late 20s," he says. "If one T-shirt got too small, I would cut out my picture and put it on top of another T-shirt. I loved the way people both hated it and loved it."
