Catcher in the Rye Raglan from Out of Print Clothing

Ok, I know this technically isn’t a t-shirt, but…this raglan is just so damn cool that I had to post it anyway (plus…there’s a t-shirt version, so it kind of counts). I’ve posted about Out of Print Clothing before–in fact, I’ve even posted about the t-shirt version of this shirt. As you can probably tell from my previous posts, I really like what Out of Print is doing. Essentially, they take great classic novels and t-shirt’ize them. Yes, this is the official term–t-shirt’ize. They make them into awesome t-shirts for the world to enjoy. It’s a great concept, and they do it exceptionally well.

This specific design, which is one of my favorites from them, is, quite obviously, J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. I know this design is basically just the book’s cover, but boy does it look great. It’s the little things of how they transferred this design from book to shirt that make it so great. Out of Print didn’t have to make major changes, but the little changes that they did make are just what was needed.

I may be rambling a little at this point due to not getting a ton of sleep, so I think I’m going to end it here. You can pick up this awesome Salinger raglan for $38.00 at Out of Print Clothing, or you can grab the white t-shirt version for $28.00. Expect more from Out of Print Clothing in the future, because I really dig their stuff.

I Survived Judgment Day T-Shirt from Print Liberation

Welcome to the Rapture everyone (sic)! We still have a little bit of time for Internet browsing before things begin, so I thought I would share this shirt with you. It’s a pretty funny shirt. This shirt comes from Print Liberation, who are the same people who made that awesome I Survived the Bush Administration t-shirt. Well, I think the Rapture is a little more dangerous than the Bush administration (a little…). Thus, this shirt is instantly more hardcore. Also, the fact that God is reaching down like some giant, spiritual claw machine game is hilarious. I think a giant hand reaching down is actually the scientific community’s conclusion of what the Rapture will look like (wait…that doesn’t make sense, does it?). As usual with Print Liberation, the font is also cooool.

If us non-believers haven’t been thrust into our fiery hell by tomorrow, then you should pick up this shirt. Show the world that you survived the Rapture, and that you’re damn proud of it. I Survived Judgment Day is printed on American Apparel and costs $18.00 over at Print Liberation. This is one of my favorite shirts in a long time, and I will definitely be buying it. Since I’m in Philadelphia, I can even go directly to the Print Liberation store and pick it up and tell them how much they rock for making this shirt.

Enjoy your non-hell life while you still have it!

2 Fried Eggs Shirt from A Year of Tees

Before I even mention anything about this design, I want to say that I really like the concept behind A Year of Tees. I don’t think I really need to explain it–it’s just a t-shirt a day for an entire year (365 designs). Very cool, and very taxing to continue pumping out quality designs. Yet, the people behind A Year of Tees seem to be up to the challenge–I’m a big fan of most of their designs.

So, let’s move to the featured design from April 4th: 2 Fried Eggs. The design is very simple. It is very much what the title says it is. Yet, I think it comes out quite cool looking. The yellow on white on black is attractive, and I think it gains power from its simplicity. Oh, and, for the immature of us, it kind of looks like boobs (lol!).

Even though it’s nothing complex, I really like this design (and not ’cause of the boobs thing). You can pick up 2 Fried Eggs for $26.00 from A Year of Tees. Check out their other designs as well, because some of them are really cool.

The Invisible Man Shirt from Miles to Go

So, after two straight all-nighters and a generally hellish (school work wise) weekend, I am back and ready to get posting. All I have is a few simple tests left–the research papers are all behind me. I thought I would start my summer with a shirt I’ve been wanting to write about for a long time–The Invisible Man from Miles to Go Clothing. Shirt is just sweet. H.G. Wells is cool and all, but I find myself thinking more about the Three Stooges when I look at this shirt. Whichever connection you make, it’s still pretty cool. I also love that he’s smoking a pipe, ’cause pipes are sweet.

You can buy this shirt for $25.00 at Miles to Go’s store. It’s printed on an American Apparel coffee colored tri-blend tee…so it’s incredibly comfortable. Enjoy, and be ready for a much more regular posting schedule.

Evil Scream from A Better Tomorrow

I hinted about this shirt yesterday on Twitter. I wasn’t exaggerating, this is definitely one of my favorite designs, and one of the best I’ve seen in a while.

This shirt is, of course, based on the existential hard-on of a painting that is Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” (that sound kind of mean…I like The Scream). Ben Chen, the artist of the shirt, reproduces Munch’s painting within the world of Batman. The Joker replaces the “screamer,” and Batman replaces the people in the background of the original painting. Ben then added a bunch of small references–the cards, the bat signal–that you should check out in the detailed product pictures on the A Better Tomorrow site.

I really, really like this shirt. I love how unique it is, and I think Ben executed the design perfectly. It’s got that “it factor”–as soon as I saw it, even though the Euro exchange rate makes it incredibly expensive, I had to have it. This shirt is the bomb.

If you agree, you can pick it up for 22 Euro from the German shop A Better Tomorrow.

Power–Kanye West T-Shirt from The Cooler Collective

With this shirt, The Cooler Collective keep up their awesome trend of great rapper shirts. Power is a great song (that beat is nasty, son), and Kanye with lazers shooting from his eyes is cool as hell. I also love how it looks a bit like an old horror movie poster. This shirt is sweet like candy.

So yeah…I’m a huge fan of this shirt. Go check it out at The Cooler Collective, because it’s cooler than most shirts (see what I horribly did there?). It’ll cost you $21.00, which is a small price to pay. We’ve also got a Cooler Collective coupon page, which will be updated whenever applicable.

P.S. The design is actually titled, “Beam Me Up”, which I think is nifty too.

Introducing Local Tees

Much like Coty, when I read the subject on Local Tees email to me and saw their name, I didn’t have high expectations. Preconceptions are made to be broken though (that’s the saying right?), because Local Tees has a bunch of great designs. Local Tees is founded on the concept of high quality tees, printed in limited edition, numbered runs (more on that directly from them at the bottom of the post). It’s a cool idea, especially when the designs are great…which they are. I’ve picked four of my favorites, but you should check them all out.

Definitely expect more posts about these guys in the future.

Local Tees was established in 2010 and was born based on an original idea, with that concept in mind, Local Tees was born and created by Three locals that began with a clear ambition of creating high-end limited edition t-shirts. With a specially chosen, high quality fabric, where the artwork is represented on 50 tees each with an edition number, ensuring no reprints will be forced.

We believe in building an international network by collaborating with artists that represent ground-breaking self made inspiring artwork, to showcase the exceptional talents from all around the world.

Be Formless, Shapeless…from Design by Humans

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from Design by Humans, so I thought I would take some time on a Friday night to rectify that. I’ve gotta be honest, I’m not attracted to the majority of DBH’s designs anymore, but…I do really like this one. The yellow really pops–it’s got that pizazz!–and I dig the fluid, paint-splash’y rendering of the person. It looks overall cool. I might just have to buy this one.

If you would like to be cool like me, you can pick this one up for $21.00 at Design by Humans; it’s printed on an American Apparel blank (since when did Design by Humans start using American Apparel? That’s bangin’). I’ve also still got 10% off Design by Humans coupons for you to use, and I’m continuing to run my deal where I’ll give you 25% off your entire order (not stackable with the coupon unfortunately). Mad savings, yo.

Clearance Sale from Fullbleed–A Bunch of Shirts for $8.00

I’m quite a bit late on posting this (gee wiz! That’s a surprise), but I couldn’t pass up the chance at letting everyone know about super cheap shirts from one of my favorite companies out there. Fullbleed is having a clearance sale for a bunch of last pressing designs, which means you can get some awesome (90% of Fullbleed’s shirts rock–it’s not like you’re getting rejects) shirts for only $8.00.

I clicked around a bit and from what I can tell most of the designs are still in stock, although, as mentioned, I’m super late posting this. If you’re interested (and you should be), head on over to the Fullbleed store and check it out.

P.S. How about that National Championship last night? Nothing like ending the game on an incredible fluke play (although it was legal). Just throwin’ in a little sports talk, because ya know, it’s 1:20 and I have no one else to talk to. I’m glad Auburn won, because unlike most people living outside Alabama, I like Cam Newton. He smiles when he plays, which is cool in my short, parenthetical paradise of a book.

Retired Plumber, a Great Mario Shirt from 604 Republic

My house has been engaging in quite a bit of Mario related action this semester, whether that be the Mario series itself, or Super Smash Bros. When smashing, Mario is one of my go to characters, as he’s a certified bad-ass. Thus, you can see why I was quite excited when I got an email from Sebastion of 604 Republic about one of their newest releases, Retired Plumber.

The shirt is damn near perfect. The concept, an old and retired Mario, is top-notch, and the execution of the design doesn’t disappoint. He looks just how I would picture Mario to look after spending his younger years gallivanting around jumping shells and smashing bricks. He’s certainly earned all those medals. To finish up my little string of praise, I also like how much his red hat pops out, it reminds me a bit of the red hat in the Life Aquatic shirt I posted awhile ago.

I love this design, and I hope you do too. If you fulfill my hopes, you can go buy it for $18.95 at 604 Republic, who have some more great designs which will be featured soon.
