I posted about the release of Fullbleed’s Season 12 line of shirts back when it happened back in April, but I never actually showcased any of the individual designs. I want to do that now, because, in usual Fullbleed fashion, they’re pretty awesome. I’m not a surfer, but I dig this design. It’s probably a little dangerous to try to surf a hurricane, though, so don’t take the shirt too literally. I love the blue that the shirt is printed on–it’s a very nice color that I may have to pick up.
The tee will cost you a very fair $18.00 at the Fullbleed store. It’s printed on a Next Level Apparel Poly/Cotton blank. I haven’t heard of this company, but given that Fullbleed decided to use them over American Apparel, I’m going to guess it’s a very comfortable blank.
Pop Chart Lab is an incredibly interesting brand that just released four awesome new designs. Their designs remind me of really detailed infographics, but made into t-shirt form. As Aileen informed me, all their shirts require hundreds of hours of research to get all the details right. These are no mere shirts. They have shirts exploring and mapping things like rap names, beer, movie monsters. All are incredibly detailed and accurate.
All of those are very cool (and will be posted about in the future), but this design showcasing famous haircuts from music is definitely my favorite. It has every relevant person on it. I won’t even try to list all the names, but if someone is notable and in modern music, they’re probably on the shirt. Shirts like these are always great for wearing, as you’ll definitely get tons of attention and people looking at your shirt. I like this design very much–it’s a cool concept, and it’s executed well down to the very last detail. Good stuff.
You can buy this shirt for $18.00 at Pop Chart Lab’s store. You can also zoom in on the shirt to see every haircut in detail. While you’re over there, be sure to check out all their other cool stuff as well.
This eye-bending perception trick is pretty popular, but as usual, Ugmonk made this shirt awesome by doing the design cleanly and choosing the perfect colors. It’s a very simple design, but Ugmonk gets the weighting of the borders and everything else perfect. I also love the white lines on the mint shirt (I think that’s the proper color nomenclature). So yeah, this is just another clean, simple, and awesome design from Ugmonk.
You can purchase Perception for $24.00 from the Ugmonk store. They print on American Apparel blanks, and as I mentioned, I believe the color of the blank is “mint”.
Right after I graduated high school, I did what all hip kids do and traveled around Europe with my friends. Among many other cities, we visited Amsterdam (what teenage kids wouldn’t?). Needless to say, I enjoyed myself immensely while I was there, and this shirt reminds me of that. I also have a friend from the Netherlands and dig cool typographical t-shirts, so it has that going for it too.
You can buy the t-shirt for 28 Euros at the Wildness Now store (much cheaper than other things* available in Amsterdam). Wildness Now has some other cool stuff which you will surely be seeing in the future as well.
*those clogs they love so much, of course. Grow up!
As I mention every time, Fullbleed is definitely one of my favorite t-shirt stores out there. Therefore, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Season 12 of Fullbleed shirts has just launched. This season features nine new t-shirt designs and two silk-screened posters. As usual, the designs are all great (and I will probably feature them individually in the future). For now though, I just wanted to let you all know to go check out all the new offerings. Rob Dobi, the guy behind Fullbleed, never disappoints, and there are a host of cool shirts in this batch. Go check out all the Season 12 shirts, and maybe add a little something to your wardrobe while you’re at it.
I just got an email from Tim about his ~one year old UK brand, All Round Clothing. Tim tells me All Around Clothing has been achieving some good popularity thanks to musicians wearing his t-shirts, namely Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria. All Round Clothing’s motto is “Take your passion, make it happen”, which I think everyone can respect.
As for this shirt, I think it’s a great and interesting design. Some might say that desig a t-shirt around an illustration of a fox would be difficult, but I think All Round Clothing has nailed it. I love the way they used the simple colors, as well as the “sketch-like” style of the design. They’ve got it branded, but not in an obnoxious way (I didn’t even see it at first), so I’ve got no problems with that. Also, the fox is wearing a top hat, which is sweet (and a British tie-in). You can buy the shirt for 16 pounds at All Round Clothing’s store. It’s printed on a cream American Apparel t-shirt.
Threadless just released the results of their “College! T-shirt Design Challenge” and boy are the t-shirts awesome. I would love to be one of the ten lucky schools that can now buy great mascot themed shirts from Threadless. Seriously Threadless–please make one of these for Temple University. I love the style, and I think you could do something great with our Owl mascot (Hooter!). For now, I will be forced to go without. If you go to UCLA, Alabama, Auburn, UC Berkely, University of Colorado, University of Illinois, LSU, Miami U, University of Iowa, or USC, go to Threadless and buy your school’s awesome shirt. Once again, please do this for Temple! We have tons of students and alumni.
Checking in to share a sweet t-shirt from a new brand called Dress Royale. The shirt is an excellent comment on the World’s (especially the US’) fascination with prescription drugs. It seems like almost everything “needs” a prescription drug, side effects included, nowadays. Dress Royale has done an excellent job of illustrating that excess. It helps that the design just looks flat out cool as well.
You can grab the tee, called “Sleep”, for $18.00. It’s printed on American Apparel 50/50 shirts. Not a bad deal at all! Additionally, here’s a cool video that they have showing one of their t-shirts being printed. Check it out:
