After watching Shaun of the Dead (for the 3rd time) this weekend, I came across this t-shirt from Seibei. Because I love Shaun of the Dead, this shirt was a no brainer for me to buy.
The cool thing is that every shirt is unique, and you can even customize whats on it. You can choose the level of gore (blood) on it, the number, and you can even get your name on the back, like a team jersey.
So buy this shirt, get out there, and kill as many zombies and vampires as you can.
If you want it, make sure to buy it soon. As if you don’t order by May 3rd, they aren’t accepting orders until the 25th.
Price: $18.00 | Seibei

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.
Don’t forget to use a Threadless coupon to save some money.
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.

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.

Sub Urban Riot was kind enough to send me their Tzars and Warlords t-shirt to review. Let’s start at the beginning with shipping. Jason shipped the shirt out the same day he offered me the review, how’s that for quick shipping? While I haven’t bought a shirt off them, I’ll assume they offer the same service to regular customers as well.
I got the package a few days later. It came in a bag with a little catalog book, and some branded matches. I got a little laugh out of the matches, because most people just send stickers, so that’s a nice touch.
Now on to the actual shirt. This shirt is one of the most comfortable tees I own. According to the site, they print on “100% cotton, Sub Urban Riot original rough cut design”. I don’t know where they get it, but it’s just amazingly comfortable. The sizes do run a little small though, so if your regular size is tight on you, you should consider ordering a size up.
Instead of giving my thoughts on the design, I’m just going to quote the product description, which sums it up pretty nicely: “Badass, tough as nails! Need we say more.” I also asked Jason for a little more about the shirts background, and here’s what I got:
Inspiration for Tzars and Warlords. Well it runs in the theme of our Ruin and Ancients designs. I hesitate to say we’re giving homage to tzars and warlords of history, but more of a recognition. There are some fascinating personalities and civilizations that sprouted from that type of rule. To put that into graphic form was exciting to create. There is some commentary in there too.
Overall, I really like both this shirt and Sub Urban Riot as a company. The shirt looks great and is incredibly comfortable, and the company has fast shipping and quick and friendly email responses. They’re also having a sale on some of their shirts right now, so you can pick some up cheap. You can see the shirt in action over at my Flickr feed.

Tank Theory just released a couple new shirts, one of which is this one, the Greatest Show on Earth. From the site,
Its a constant political and mental battle everyday everywhere on earth. Wars are being fought and operations being launched. Blood, black, blue, red and white, its an orgy of ravenous rulers fighting for domination over black goo and making this truly the Greatest Spectacle on Earth.
Like most Tank Theory tees, the design quality is excellent. I wish they would’ve printed this one in slim fit style though. They have the price listed, so maybe they’re still coming. There’s no way the slim fits are sold out already, considering t this tee was just released.
Also, Tank Theory is running a $15 sale on some of their t-shirts. I think it’s just to clear out stock, as none of my favorite designs are on sale, but they’re still good designs at a cheap price.
Price: $21.00 / $23.00 | Tank Theory
I don’t have much time, but I just wanted to pop in for a quick entry to keep my roll of a post per day going. I posted up another one of Axid’s t-shirts awhile, and as I said then, and still do now, I like alot of their shirts, including this one. This one is probably in my top three or four (which I guess isn’t that amazing, considering they don’t have that many designs). I emailed them about what they print on, and they responded that it’s 100% cotton tees. I’m not sure what brand they are though.
Price: $25.00 | Axid
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.

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.
