Buskers can now let the world know they're a street-performer by wearing their hat on their t-shirt. You can even add a face if you wish.

There's an old busker saying - "A busker isn't complete without his hat. Then, he's finished."

Also featured are "suit & tie" tees and even the Professional Street Performers Association's logo on all kinds of shirts, tote bags, buttons, drinking cups, stickers, posters, and even hats.

You can even create your own logos on apparel for other buskers and street-performers to enjoy. Artists will relish designing their own shirts. Check out the links below for even more busker t-shirt...

Buskers melt in 117° desert heatwave by BC on Jul 2, 2013

It's never been hotter in Sin City which just tied an all time record of 117 (47.2 C) degrees in June. Regular street-performers seem to be gravitating towards the Fremont Street Experience where it's a tad cooler. But anyone in an enclosure or costume almost has to have a whole thermos of cold water with them.
