I realize that the market for these t-shirts is fairly limited, given they’re only for a limited number of colleges, but I thought Stefan and his brother had a really clean and cool design style, AND a bunch of these colleges are in the MAC (Temple’s football conference), so I had to share anyway. So yeah, if you go to Iowa State, Wright State, Kent State, Akron, Youngstown State, Miami (Ohio I’m assuming), Iowa, or any of a number of other schools around that area, you can pick up a pretty snazzy t-shirt sporting your university.
They’ll run you $26 at the Garage Cotton store. Even if I didn’t list your school, be sure to check the designs out, because I didn’t list everything single school they have. If your college is in the mid-west, there’s a good chance you can find your school.
First off, I hope everyone enjoyed whatever holiday you celebrate–I know I did. Troundup (me) is moving further into the digital age with an iPhone 4s (big post to celebrate that later!), and I’m already liking the change. Let’s get to the actual post though, ’cause you probably don’t want to read my babblings.
I love Fullbleed, so when they release any type of new design, I jump on it. Now, while these aren’t 100% new, they are re-imagined old designs that were out of stock…so they’re kind of new. That’s good enough for me. I dig all three designs, and you can grab them for $18.00 each over at the Fullbleed store. The designs are printed on American Apparel blanks.
If you’ve read this blog for a decent amount of time, you probably know that I love Fullbleed (and open every Fullbleed post with this little tidbit). I wanted to share this great tee, Rough Flight, from Rob’s newest series of designs. I like the colors of the tee, and the message is also pretty cool. While I do sometimes feel like the face on the t-shirt after a long flight, I think the message is a little broader (like…life, and stuff…). I dig it.
You can pick up this great design for $18.00 from the Fullbleed store. As with all Fullbleed designs, it’s printed on an American Apparel t-shirt blank.
I’ve known about Threadless’ print collaboration with Society6 for a while, but I had never delved deeper into the Society 6 website until today. When I did, I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer number of awesome t-shirt designs they had. I saw a bunch of designs that I loved on just the few pages I sifted through. I only chose one t-shirt today, but I’ll show off the rest of my favorites in due time.
This Darth Vader t-shirt, aptly entitled “Dark Lord”, is designed by Liam Brazier, and is flippin’ awesome. I love the geometric feel (there’s probably an official name for that, but I don’t know it…). It just looks damn cool. Plus, it’s Darth Vader…’nuff said. Black and red were the perfect colors to use, so props there, too. I just overall dig this design, and I’m debating buying it in print form to hang on my wall.
The t-shirt will cost you $22.00 at the Society6 Store. It’s printed on an American Apparel 100% cotton tee. You will definitely be seeing more Society6 stuff in the future.
I’m stopping by on my way out tonight to let y’all know about a great new t-shirt brand called Goodfibres. Not only do they have some excellent shirts, but they’re also “Designed With Purpose.” Here’s a little explanation of what this means from their site:
No, we’re not just another t-shirt site. We like good design and fashion but we also think that, as artists, and friends of artists, we can do something big by teaming up our collective voice to help people who need it. Firstly, we aim to help the artists who participate – we do this in many ways, but mainly by allowing every designer to retain the rights to their artwork and by giving them 10% of the proceeds on each sale. Next, we want our artists and customers to feel that they are participating in something that is making a difference so we will match every purchase by donating to a community in need.
I’m always happy to support a store with great designs, and even happier when that store also donates to communities in need. I’ve chosen two of my favorite designs above, but I recommend you dig through the site in its entirety because there really are some great designs. You can pick up some cool tees and help some people out at the same time. The shirts typically cost 25 Pounds (dang exchange rate!). Goodfibres is based in Shoreditch, London and will definitely be featured more on troundup in the future.
P.S. If I go offline in the next few days it’s because the “rapture-es” Hurricane Irene will be storming through Philadelphia.
I love this t-shirt. I burst out at laughing as soon as I saw the title (I Hate Taking the Bus to Work). It’s just my kind of humor I guess. Not only is the concept funny, but I think the person (creature?) looks absolutely ridiculous, in a good way. I mean…that mustache? C’mon! Frankly, the image by itself makes me laugh. The title is just the gravy on top of the mashed laughing.
You can pick this awesome, awesome design up for 26 Euros from the German store, A Better Tomorrow. A Better Tomorrow continuously finds great designs. I just wish they were in the USA so there would be no shipping/Euro pains. They’re the same people who sell Evil Scream, which is one of my favorite designs. Anyway, check out this design, and then browse around the rest of the store because you will probably find a bunch more stuff you like.
Sorry for the delay in posting–I’ve been travelling back and forth between houses and it’s slowed me down a bit. I’m back though, and ready to dive into things with renewed vigor! Doesn’t that sound fun? Anyway, I wanted to start with the third offering from the awesome Insound and Delicious Design collaboration project. If you haven’t heard, the collaboration creates unique and extremely limited edition t-shirts for various bands. This t-shirt is for the band Washed Out, who I’m not very familiar with. I’ve heard a few of their songs and remember liking them, but that’s about it. What’s more important though, is that I like the design and I like what Insound and Delicious Design are doing, so I’m going to support them. If you’re a fan of Washed Out, you should probably buy this shirt, because it’s awesome. It also supports a cool website, slangin’ the vinyl like it’s the 60s.
Even if I didn’t know this was a band t-shirt, I would still like it. The bullseye looks awesome, and I love how they have the “W” cutting through it. The design looks great! You can pick it up for $19.99 from the Insound store. Remember, the design is very limited, so they won’t be around forever, and you won’t see a bunch of strangers wearing it. Also remember that we have an Insound coupon code page, which usually has a coupon good for 10% off (although I think that just expired, unfortunately). You should also check out Washed Out–I will definitely be familiarizing myself with them in the coming days.
I apologize if this writing seems a little “rambly”. My brain is kind of fried from doing a bunch of non-t-shirt writing, and I’m having trouble being succinct.
I just found out about Edgar R. McHerly’s t-shirt shop…and I’m in looooove with his style. He’s got that quirky touch that I’m such a big fan of. The little slogan on the site is “Don’t be surprised if the people in your head try to escape one day,” which I’d say is a pretty legitimate description of what’s happening in the shirt.
If you like this t-shirt, you should check out the rest of Edgar’s designs, as they won’t let you down. The prices are also fairly cheap–you can pick up The Escape for only $15.00. It’s printed on a lime American Apparel unisex tee (which is an awesome, awesome color. Trust me). Enjoy!
