    If you authorize someone to create a shirt for your personal use alone, I doubt anyone would come after you.
    If someone were to be pursued, it would be the person who created the shirt.

    However, how would anyone even know you're wearing such a shirt, or who you are to even approach you about it?

    If you don't answer, no one would made know who made the damn shirt.

    Even if you are asked about the shirt, you're under no legal obligation to respond.
    In fact, I never answer questions.

    Blabbing is how most people get into legal jams, their dangerous tongues.
