Ok, I know this technically isn’t a t-shirt, but…this raglan is just so damn cool that I had to post it anyway (plus…there’s a t-shirt version, so it kind of counts). I’ve posted about Out of Print Clothing before–in fact, I’ve even posted about the t-shirt version of this shirt. As you can probably tell from my previous posts, I really like what Out of Print is doing. Essentially, they take great classic novels and t-shirt’ize them. Yes, this is the official term–t-shirt’ize. They make them into awesome t-shirts for the world to enjoy. It’s a great concept, and they do it exceptionally well.
This specific design, which is one of my favorites from them, is, quite obviously, J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. I know this design is basically just the book’s cover, but boy does it look great. It’s the little things of how they transferred this design from book to shirt that make it so great. Out of Print didn’t have to make major changes, but the little changes that they did make are just what was needed.
I may be rambling a little at this point due to not getting a ton of sleep, so I think I’m going to end it here. You can pick up this awesome Salinger raglan for $38.00 at Out of Print Clothing, or you can grab the white t-shirt version for $28.00. Expect more from Out of Print Clothing in the future, because I really dig their stuff.
Pirate Bath is a company who (whom?) I’ve featured before. They’re also one of my “favoriter” brands, so I wanted to share them again in case anyone missed out on the first post.
This one, aptly titled “Mouth”, is probably my third favorite out of the five designs they currently have. I dig the sketch style and the horizontal lines on the back are just class (World Cup speech infiltrating my typing).
You can check out all their offerings over at the Pirate Bath store.
I could probably just go through Poketo’s site and post each and every shirt they sell (which will most likely end up happening eventually anyway), because I love them all.
As for this one, I really like the geometric trees, and I think the colors are just the purtiest thing. I also like the geometry of the reflection in general (I think this is the most I’ve ever used “geometry” and “like” together).
This shirt, Symphony, resides in Fullbleed’s newest set of releases, Series 10, and is pretty damn hot on the hot to not scale (like a 10, with 10 setting an impervious ceiling). I like the idea of a dude directing cascading colors all over your shirt. If someone makes a shirt which does that in real time, it might one up this one, but for now, I think Symphony is in a pretty solid situation.
If you share my affection, you can pick this up for $19.00 at Fullbleed, printed on American Apparel blanks.
Unfortunately, I doubt many people will be able to afford this shirt from Das Monk, as it weighs in at a hefty $59.95. That being said, I really like the design. I enjoy the use of the half-white design on a white t-shirt–it makes it pop in an odd way. Also, geometry (the pictures, not the math) and Pablo Picasso are worthy subjects to incorporate into a shirt.
Were this shirt $45 cheaper, I would buy it. With its current price point though, all I can do is some ogling. Check it out at Das Monk.
College essays have got me down! But thankfully after I finish these 15 pages or so I’m pretty much done major work for the semester, which is pretty rad. So…on to talking about the actual t-shirt–I dig it. It’s simple but really really cool. I like the brush stroke look of the design. It also goes without saying that I like the play on colors and I also think I’ve mentioned how much I like bright colors before–that still holds true as well.
You can grab it at Consilium Clothing for $30 with free shipping. Also, I like their “about us”. Brand tees are no good (most of the time–not always). Check it:

I’m exhausted, so no time for a long post today. You can just enjoy the pretty pictures courtesy of Loveless Apparel. You can pick this one up for $19.95. Check it out.
Kowtow has some pretty sweet, albeit also pretty expensive t-shirts. I would be happy wearing any one of their shirts (expect the one with naked people, you can check that one out for yourself, it might draw a little too much attention).
That being said, I’d have to pick Lion as my favorite out of their shirts. Unfortunately, it’ll run you $52.50. But it’s still a damn cool shirt, isn’t it?
Kowtow is run by a bunch of artistic and creative folk who are dedicated to making people look great and leaving their conscience free from worries!
Every single Kowtow garment is designed and tailored with comfort and longevity in mind.

Robert from Shirtcity has been emailing me for awhile now – I’ve always put off responding though (I get busy and forget), so I feel bad about that. Today when he emailed me, I really liked one of the submissions, so I figured I could rectify my lack of responses by throwing a post up.
This one is from the Scribtee part of the site (I’m actually entirely sure what that means, but it sounds cool). At first I thought it was just a ship, but at second glance, I realized the ship is indeed a ghost ship (a for realz ghost). I think the mint shirt is the best possible color for this to be printed on, it works very well.
You can pick it up for 22 Euro from Shirtcity.
There are a lot of t-shirts with similar themes (cities + nature), but I think this one from Congress Clothing is one of the better ones out there. Unfortunately it’s sold out in everything except XS and XL, but, who knows – maybe they’ll reprint it. It seems like there’s a good chance, as the sale page says that new colors of the design are coming soon.
