I recently posted about that awesome Best Coast t-shirt which came from Insound and Delicious Design’s collaboration project. That shirt was the first release from the duo of companies. Today, they’ve come back with a second release from another awesome band: The Walkmen. The Walkmen are a great band who I really enjoy. Funny story–I actually saw The Walkmen live twice at SXSW and XPN Festival before I ever actually listened to them. They put on a great show, and all their songs are quality. This, In the New Year, is probably my favorite song from them if you want a starting point.
As for the t-shirt design itself, I also dig that. It’s just got that simple yet creative flair that I enjoyed so much in the Best Coast shirt. I’m definitely adding this to my already overflowing (with vinyl) Insound cart. As with all the t-shirts from their collaboration, they’re printed in limited edition runs–so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Don’t dawdle! You can pick up the design for $19.99 at Insound. We’ve also got an Insound coupon code, which is currently active and good for 10% off your entire order. The shirt is printed on American Apparel. Oh yeah, be sure to check out The Walkmen as well.
Ammmmmggggg. Fullbleed Series 11 has just launched, and boy is it great. As is Fullbleed’s modus operandi, there are a ton of awesome t-shirts in this series. Rob Dobi, the man behind Fullbleed, has one of my favorite t-shirt design styles (hence why he’s been on my “favorite t-shirt companies” list since pretty much troundup’s inception). His designs are just so…elegant? I can’t find the adjectives I want, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Here are some of my favorite t-shirts from Fullbleed Series 11, but you should check all of them out.
In total, there are nine new t-shirts (I think I counted right). He’s also released two awesome prints. One of these prints is of Bombshell (the shirt on the bottom right), while the other is only a print. This second one, The Optimist, is a great piece of art. Definitely check it out–we can branch out a little beyond t-shirts, right? There’s a picture of it below.
Hit up the Fullbleed store to check out all the new releases. I’ve also got a Fullbleed coupon page ready to go should Rob ever release a coupon. Unfortunately, he has yet to do so. I will never lose hope, though.
I really like this newly released Best Coast t-shirt from Insound. It’s part of the newly started Insound + Delicious Design Project, which is really cool. Insound has partnered up with Chicago based Delicious Design. Together, they will create a unique t-shirt for six of their favorite bands from 2011. These shirts will be printed on American Apparel and only released in small, one-time batches. The Best Coast shirt is the first release from this awesome partnership.
As for the shirt itself, I love it. I haven’t been to California, but I imagine that this shirt holds some truth (or a lot of truth…). California is out there being all smiley and sunny while Pennsylvania is stuck with that frowny rain. I love the East coast, but California (and the West coast as a whole), still holds a particular allure to me.
You can pick this t-shirt up for a limited time from Insound. It’s printed on American Apparel and costs $19.99. I also should be able to provide an updated Insound coupon code very soon, which will most likely be good for 10% off your order.
P.S. I saw Best Coast in Philly. She was sick but it was still a pretty good show. Her voice was amazing live.
If you’ve read my blog for a decent amount of time, you probably know that I am a huge Arrested Development fan. As such, when a t-shirt company that I already really like makes an Arrested Development shirt, I, well, get a little giddy. This shirt, Bluth Family Crest, from 604 Republic caused such giddiness in me.
This shirt is just a treasure trove of little references that Arrested Development fans will love. The chicken, the bananas, the hook, and so much more are all there. It’s just a great shirt, and it does Arrested Development, one of the best written (and just best) TV shows, justice.
P.S. Cross your fingers and pray that the Arrested Development movie really does happen, and, more importantly, that it maintains the incredible quality of the show.
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.
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!
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.
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.
