>P.S.:  I have also seen the "Thus do I clothe my naked villainies"

This quotation was used for the Ian McKellen theatrical production of
Richard III which toured about a year or two before the 1995 film's
release.

The shirt is done up like a rock music tour shirt on the back.

Upon sitting down to read King Lear again the other day(God bless John
Keats), I felt that the play yields a great number of t-shirt
quotations. A few that I really like:

*Come not between the dragon and his wrath.

*Now gods, stand up for bastards!

*All with me's meet that I can fashion fit.

And just because it's one of my favorite quotes in all of Shakespeare:

*Thou whoreson Z, thou unnecessary letter.

Oh alright, Kent is a comedian in that scene and here are two more
appropriate quotes:

*A plague upon your epileptic visage!

*I have seen better faces in my time/
 Than stands on any shoulder that I see/
 Before me at this instant.

Boy, this is fun.
