Annual Apparel, who are getting their long overdue review from me, make shirts that commemorate all the events from a certain year, in this case, 2008. Highlights of the events featured include the election, the mortgage crisis, the Superbowl, the Olympics, Heath Ledger and Batman, and many, many more. As you can see from that, the detail in the shirt is insane. I wish I had a camera that could do the design justice, but all my shots turned out somewhat blurry. You can find some more detailed shots at their site though.
Pick this up on the super soft Alternative Apparel blanks and own a piece of history. While right now they only have a shirt for 2008, they do have ideas for more shirts in the pipeline. You can even vote on which year you want done next.
Hot damn, this shirt is awesome. Lately I hadn’t seen anything I particularly liked on Threadless–I’ve been more into DBH–but this is definitely getting bought. It’s time to use some of the STPs I accumulated over the sale.
The concept is great, and I think it comes across really, really well as a shirt. It’s printed on American Apparel over Threadless’ blanks for some reason (I’m not complaining) and will run you $18. Grab it at Threadless.
Show off your literary knowledge and slick sense of humor at the same time with this tee from Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. Whoever came up with this design is a genius, and gets an internet slap on the back from me. I’m quoting their product description because it gave me some lulz:
Celebrate the joys of civil disobedience without all those pesky anarchy symbols and itchy ski-masks. Go ahead – stick it to The Powers That Be, minus those shattered windows and molotov cocktails.
This one will run you $36, which is kind of expensive, but definitely worth it.
Just a short post, because I just wrote about these guys yesterday, but I really like today’s design as well. It’s $12 today, then $15 for the rest of the week, then gone forever. Use for troundup free shipping or click on any of these links.
Teextile is quickly moving up on my “list of t-shirt companies I should check often”. There’s certainly the motivation that each design is only for sale for 1 day (although it appears now you can buy each shirt for a week? Maybe, we’ll see), but it’s also because their designs are pretty dang good–like today’s, Inner Gears, which I might end up buying. I love the style on this, as well as the concept.
This one will run you $12 at Teextile, and might be on sale for today only, or maybe for all of this week–either way, don’t wait around. You can also use code troundup (or click on any of the links in this post) for free shipping. They print on American Apparel, so that’s a pretty sick deal.
The latest winner over at A Better Tomorrow is pretty snazzy. Both the colors used and the design (scroll down for an explanation) are great. It’s printed on American Apparel and will run you 18 Euros at the very German, A Better Tomorrow.
Now the explanation behind the design, which, thankfully, is in english:
This was inspired by the song of Mikaela…which deliberately tackles the ways on how to let go and move on. Its like flapping and throwing up ur wings widely so u can fly high and be free from everything.
If I hadn’t just spent a ton of money, I would so be buying this shirt right now, because it’s damn cool. It reminds me somewhat of Funkalicious from Threadless, but I think I like this one even more. The style of the astronaut combined with the color splash behind is excellently done.
This one will run you $23.97 at Palmercash, and may be joining my closet sometime soon.
I never knew about Teextile until today, when I got an email letting me know about their new competition. The site is similar to Teefury, in that everyday they release a new design which is on sale for that day only. The designs all look very sharp, especially today’s, and, in contrast to Teefury, they print on American Apparel–something I much prefer.
I also mentioned a contest/coupon. Similar to DBH’s Friend-a-thon, the winner gets a Macbook Pro, second place gets an iPod touch, and third place (along wth first and second) gets free shirts for a year. Given that I like laptops, but don’t have one, I was wondering if you good folks would be willing to help me out–don’t worry, you get something too. If you use the referral code “troundup” at checkout, or click on any of these links (I think), you get free shipping, and I’m a point closer to a laptop. So yeah, that would be awesome. But either way, check them out, because they have some great shirts.
