There are three shirts I like this week, two of which I’ll probably end up buying. Overall, a solid week for Threadless.
The first one is Jump from Enora Josse, an outright hilarious design. I also don’t have many dark blue shirts, so two birds with one stone.
I probably won’t be buying this, just because I’m to cheap to pay for Select tees, but I think Land of 1000 Dances is a great design. Hell, it may be good enough to make me change my frugal ways, if just for a moment.
An oldie, but a goodie. I usually don’t go for type tees, but this is one of the few I like enough to wear.

Naive Clothing just underwent a huge makeover, releasing a new website and tons of new tees simultaneously. I’m a fan of most of the new shirts, with my favorite being King Eagle. It’s just a great looking design, and I especially like the fact that the branding actually looks cool, which some companies don’t seem to understand. They also print on American Apparel, which is a plus. The design comes on a bunch of different colors, which I believe are brown, slate, gold, and light blue, although some are sold out.
Price: $15.00 | Naive Clothing
I’d like to say there’s some funny or intelligent message behind this tee, but, unless I’m missing it, that doesn’t seem to be the case. No, the real reason I like this tee is just because I’m oddly attracted to the design. I can’t really explain why, it’s just one of those things where you look at it and go, “Hey, that’s cool, I’d totally wear that”. Unfortunately, for those of us in the US, the shirt is kind’ve expensive, weighing in at 25 pounds + shipping, which is over $40 I believe.

As seems to be the norm, out of this week’s Threadless t-shirts there are two that I really like. One is a reprint of a great shirt, while the other is a brand new tee.
I’m Sure I Used To Fit
Funny and well designed…I don’t have much to say beyond that.

I actually came across this shirt yesterday. As soon as I saw it, I was hoping for a reprint. I don’t know how it happened, but I’m certainly glad my wish got answered in such an expedient fashion. I just hope I can afford all these new Threadless tees I want.

CUSTOM Industries is a globally inspired streetwear brand whose aesthetic reflects the quest for adventure and the discovery of the obscure. CUSTOM is about individuality AND community, living life on the road and off-the-beaten path. Respect for the familiar and the unusual; opening eyes and minds to peoples, places and cultures from around the world, and in our own backyards.
Matt from CUSTOM Industries emailed me awhile back about reviewing some of their shirts. I liked them so much I asked Matt about getting an actual shirt to review, which he kindly sent out.
Here’s just a little background about the company. From reading the site, Matt, who is the founder, has traveled quite a bit around the world, 45 different countries to be exact. This can be easily seen in the various cultural icons/ideas their designs influenced by. These influences give their shirts a unique, global feel about them. Also, something which I find extremely cool, on all the tags of their shirts, it gives you the location from whence the shirt comes.
Like most of the companies I’ve dealt with, the shipping was extremely fast. Inside the package was the t-shirt, some cool stickers (they feel very cool, not the standard sticker), and a post card with a note from Matt.
The tee I received from them was their Bushido design. As you’d expect, this design is based on Japan’s Bushido code, which is something I find fascinating. It’s printed on a 70% Cotton, 30% Poly Ringer T-shirt, which, like most of the shirts I’ve received, is extremely comfortable.
The influences of their shirts, at least for me, could not be better. Combine that with excellent designs and comfortable tees, and you’ve got one kickass store. I strongly urge you to check out the rest of their designs.
Price: $30.00 | CUSTOM Industries
While a little expensive, I really like this tee from Young Lovers. Here’sÂ the inspiration behind the shirt summed up in one sentence, “Death to Arms and the worldwide arms race.” Another cool thing is that all their shirts are limited editions, as of now, only 100 prints of each shirt are made. Regarding what they print on, this is what I found, “All of our tees are made with the finest combed, ringspun 100% cotton.” They also offer a perfect fit guarantee, so you can always mail it back (at your expense) and get a new size if it doesn’t fit right.
Price: $39.00 | Young Lovers (scroll down for shirt)
This shirt reminds me of the “You’ve Got Some Splainin’ to Do” t-shirt from Threadless, which I find hilarious. I’m not sure which came first, but they’re both unique, and they’re both funny. Shirtstain prints on American Apparel and is also having a $10 sale on all their shirts. $10 for an American Apparel t-shirt is a great deal in itself, throw in the awesome design and it just gets sweeter.
Another tee of theirs I like is Hokusai, so check it out!
If you decide to order a tee, throw crn001 (at) gmail.com (remove spaces/replace (at) with @) in the referrer box so I can earn some points. You’ll get the personal satisfaction of having helped me out as well as my eternal gratitude.

Monday brings another batch of Threadless tees, and, just like last week, there are two that I really like.
I Have Something to Tell You is an awesome cute/quirky/funny design from Christopher Garcia. I think he pretty much nailed the coloring and design size as well. Like I said last week, I’m not a huge fan of burgundy, but because of all (well, two in the last two weeks) the good designs being printed on it, it’s growing on me.
You Sank My Battleship is one of the classic Threadless tees. I, and a bunch of other people, have been waiting for a reprint for a long time; I’m glad Threadless finally indulged us.
