Jimi Hendrix will never go out of style! An extraordinary talent and a true innovator, he had a distinctive look all his own. He is still considered by many to be the greatest rock guitarist of all time, but he was also a style icon. His afro, bandana headbands, band jackets, and paisley shirts defined his style and influenced a generation. Old School Tees has tried to put together our best collection of Jimi Hendrix t-shirts.
