Many open carry because they can. Some states allow open carry without a CHL. There are many reasons people open carry.
However a minority do it because they think it deters criminals.
I don't understand why you would want to advertise that you are carrying if you are carrying concealed. The whole point of carrying concealed is to keep it concealed. Not to advertise it. I'm sure your local law would appreciate calls they would get if a bunch of people started wearing those...
What if you get into a disagreement with someone and they decide to tell the police you pointed your gun at them? Now you might have to face charges of brandishing... If you where inconspicuous about your carry they might not know you had a gun at all.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I dont need a shirt...anyone that knows me know that I carry.
If you see me...I am carrying.

I used to wear one of these all the time when working covertly.

I think this has been the most intelligent answer I've received on this entire thread. Finally an answer that actually addresses the original post rather than attack on the whole open-carry/advertising idea.

This is one of those threads where I should have prefaced the subject with "this is a hypothetical question" because as soon as I posted it, people assumed I wanted to actually do that, even though I have mentioned several times throughout the thread that I didn't want to do it, I just wanted to know how it would be different from open-carry, or if it might substitute for open-carry in states that don't allow it.
With all that said, it seems as you have already made up your mind. I gathered from the title of your post that you wanted others opinions, you have them. Why are you continuing to argue? Gun brand shirts have their place on the range, that’s about it. To me it’s like tap out and affliction gear, it belongs in the gym period. That’s my opinion, you asked for it you got it. If you are trying to change the minds of the board members you are not doing a good job.

Aren't we talking about concealing "hiding" something? I don't recall as a kid ever playing hide 'n' go seek and when I was "hiding" under a bed as soon as the seeker said "ready or not, here I come!" that I would start shouting "I'm hiding under the bed, I AM HIDING UNDER THE BED!".
People "conceal" different things for different reasons. I have never heard of a drug dealer with dope to sell in his pocket wearing a shirt that says "Yes, I have dope for sell in my pocket!".
I am also pretty certain the low life 9/11 terrorists did not wear shirts that said "Yes, I am concealing a box cutter on my person!".
Concealed means concealed.
Not only that but I would venture to say that such a shirt would probably land you in hot water and get your license revoked. Just printing enough times or brandishing is bad enough. Wearing something that proclaims "MWAG" will probably get you in trouble. What's the difference between that and walking into a store and screaming "I have a gun!" and lifting your shirt to prove it?
edit: After I posted, I saw your post saying you would not wear a shirt like that. Glad you saw the light.
Also, after re-reading, my terrorist comparission was a bad example. IIRC, they openly carried those in with their bags, but you get my point.
