Cropped from Chapter 804, page 16

The print on Franky's shirt reads something like "I☀HT". I Googled about it and nothing came up. Also, I have checked the One Piece Wikia page and it doesn't have any details about the logo. What does it mean and does it have any significance?

    I'm pretty sure that it's supposed to be a sun. Like those shirts that say "I <3 NY". So "I (sun) {something}" - "HoT", maybe? Oct 23, 2015 at 7:07
  • I'm not sure, but I found this IoHT is acronym for Institute of Human Thermodynamics, see here. Or maybe not, I don't know :D

  • This could potentially be a sneak reference to Jack Sun, The general manager of HT-Tools

Some comment here suggests that the sun is a reference to the rising sun, so "AM", as in "in the morning"/"Ante Meridian". It then becomes "I AM HT". HT would be the acronym of 変態 (HenTai) or pervert.

So that would mean the T-shirt is actually subtly saying "I am a pervert".

    Knowing Franky it wouldn't surprise me if he wore a t-shirt to convey that message. Please note that HenTai can also be interpreted as a 'shapeshifter' which he is, being a cyborg and all..

The most relevant abbreviation of HT i found was "Hull Maintenance Technician", which is a US Navy occupational rating.

Though now that i think about it, the "I AM HenTai" makes more sense for Franky afterall lol
