I can't speak for all Americans, but for me, its two fold.
First, they're comfortable.  My wife likes seeing me in things with  
buttons but I can't fathom why anyone likes wearing that stuff.
Second, a good t-shirt gives you a way to walk around shoving your  
opinion down everyone else's throat without actually having to expend  
any energy on communication.  A TextMate shirt allows me to walk  
around saying "I use TextMate and if you don't you're a moron and I'm  
better than you".

As an american I get to be both obscenely opinionated and lazy at the  
same time.  Tee-shirts ARE the american dream!

P.S. This really shouldn't be taken literally or be taken as a slam  
on the American world view. I love our way of life (and, truth be  
told, I can be pretty stinkin opinionated) but if you can't poke fun  
at yourself you're just too stuffy for your own good.
