Joe Dallesandro starred in Andy Warhol's Trash, the 1970 film written and directed by Paul Morrisey.
The Andy Warhol's Trash T-Shirt is inspired by Dallesandro's fifth starring turn in a Warhol produced movie.
Trash (1970) is an American black-and-white experimental film produced by Andy Warhol and directed by Paul Morrissey, starring Joe Dallesandro, Holly Woodlawn, and Jane Forth. The film follows the drug-addled life of Joe, a young man who hustles for money on the streets of New York City.
Joe's life is a constant struggle to survive and score drugs. He is surrounded by a cast of characters who are just as lost and damaged as he is, including Holly, a transvestite who is also struggling with addiction, and Jane, a wealthy socialite who is drawn to Joe's desperation.
The film is notable for its gritty realism and its unflinching portrayal of the dark side of life in New York City. It is also notable for its use of unconventional filmmaking techniques, such as its handheld camerawork and its use of non-professional actors.
Trash was a critical and commercial failure upon its release, but it has since been re-evaluated as a groundbreaking work of cinema. It is now considered to be one of Warhol's most important films.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
