If you haven’t heard of Beautiful/Decay, I recommend you go and check out their t-shirts right now. The design quality of most of their tees is just astounding, especially this one, Aya Kato Dragon.
According to Beautiful/Decay,
This Aya Kato design features a cowering yet deadly ninja-geisha retreating behind her fan/umbrella and protected by her pet dragon which bleeds off the bottom of the shirt.
I believe a geisha is somewhat like a ninja, so that instantly ups the cool factor of this shirt. Other than that, excellent colors used in the design (it just looks cool, even if you can’t see what’s happening), and it’s printed on American Apparel, my favorite tees.

I guess I just like random, quirky, t-shirts, because I find this tee from Amorphia Apparel hilarious. The only downside is you can’t exactly wear this shirt to work, so it would only receive limited “wear time”. Also, Amorphia Apparel prints via Spreadshirt, which I’m not incredibly happy about. I wish they did in house printing, because I like alot of their designs. But, if you can get over those two things, this shirt rocks.

American Pig Brand just kindly sent me their King Herald Slate t-shirt to review. This is my first review, so I’m just going to start at the beginning and go straight through the process.
The shipping was lightning quick, I literally received the shirt 3 days or so after James said he was sending me one. I’m going to assume they take the same care with all their customers, so you can expect the same. The package came nicely folded in a ziplock bag inside a padded envelope; they even threw in some stickers which is a nice touch.
Now, on to the design. As I said before in my previous American Pig post, I’m a sucker for t-shirts with crest type designs, and this one is no exception. It’s a solid design that is pretty damn cool looking and is just the right size for the shirt. Which brings me to my next point: the shirt. American Pig prints on American Apparel, so, as you can imagine, their shirts are incredibly comfortable.
Overall, I give American Pig Brand and this shirt two thumbs up.
*Note, if you want, you can see pictures of my ugly self wearing this shirt over at my Flickr (which will be added to the site soon if it isn’t already).

Today’s T-Shirt is King Rhino from the company Resist Today. I’m not sure if there’s some deeper meaning behind the shirt, but I mainly like it just because I think the design is superb. Resist Today also seems like a good company to support, as they put a lot of emphasis on the individual artists and actually making art. I believe the shirt is printed on American Apparel, so there definitely won’t be any comfort problems. They also have an excellent line of wallets/bags, which, while a bit expensive, are definitely worth checking out.

Just came across this awesome t-shirt from a relatively new (I think) t-shirt company, RRP OFF. I think the tee is hilarious, and it reminds me of the movie “300″ for some reason (the, “Tonight We Dine in Hell” part, although I doubt that was intended). As a company, RRP OFF seems really cool as well, I especially like their models. They print on Fruit of The Loomâ€™s BEST Tees, which I believe are what Threadless uses for their standard guy’s tees, so the shirt should be pretty comfortable.
Price: $20.00 | RRP OFF

I really like this t-shirt, Spreading Out, from Ten Bills. The design is a little small for my taste, but the actual content of the design more than makes up for that. Also, I should mention that Ten Bills is currently selling all their shirts for $5 until they run out of stock, so you can pick this up super cheap.
Price: $5.00 | Ten Bills
This t-shirt, Spiritual Warfare, from Black Sea Apparel has a pretty kick-ass design, and that’s why I like it. You can’t really see the design in the picture, but if you go here, you can see a closeup (its the one on the far left). Like most of the shirts I pick, this one is printed on an American Apparel tee.
I can’t link directly to the shirt, so you’ll have to fish around their site for a little.

I think the message of this shirt is pretty obvious, and that’s one of the reasons I like it. I also really like the design, although I wish it was slightly bigger so you could see more of the surfers. The tee is printed on 100% cotton American Apparel shirts, so quality and comfort are definitely there as well.

According to Martin Hsu, cleansing is important for you health, even if youâ€™re an incredibly well drawn Hindu deity. This is one of Martinâ€™s newest designs,and features a Hindu deity wearing a gas mask. I really like this design, I just think it looks pretty dang cool. It also has a great meaning behind it (at least how I interpret it). As an added bonus, the tee is printed on a silver American Apparel t-shirt.
