Hunter S. Thompson is an unequivocal badass. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas straight through in one sitting because of this fact. If you want a story of drug filled fun and mayhem I recommend you do the same.
I dig this shirt from LTD Tee because it’s simple, but still manages to capture Mr. Thompson. The hair, the glasses, the cigarette, it’s all him. Cloxboy (the artist) did a great job on this one.
You can pick it up for $26.99 at LTD Tee. With that $26.99, you get, in addition to the shirt, an 8×10 art print, a certificate of authenticity, some stickers, and a custom box. Pretty cool.
You can also use the coupon code “troundup” for 20% off your order, bringing it down to $21.59. A dedicated coupon page for LTD Tee will be coming soon.
I dig well done, interesting tie-dye shirts, which consequently leads to me liking B’s Tees very much. You can choose your blank shirt and colors and have B make you a shirt from scratch, or you can pick from one of her individually number and signed designs (none of those tie-dye mills who crank out huge batches of the exact same design).
The customization is a cool touch, and her designs are really interesting and well done. I’ve grabbed just a few samples to post here, but you should check them all out.
You can visit B’s Tees by going here. Prices start at $17.00.
There are so many awesome things going on in this shirt (most of which are directly referenced in the very apt title). I’ve never been to Portland, but it seems pretty spot on from what I’ve heard. Headbands, big hairy beards, and fixed gear bikes are where it’s at.
Anyway, this shirt from Threadless’ Artist Shoppe made me laugh uproariously, and is pretty damn witty to add to that. You can pick it up for $22.00. I just wish I could use my STPs on it.
P.S. I hope no one thinks I’m insulting Portland. I really want to visit there as soon as possible. And Seattle. I wouldn’t mind adding San Francisco and Berkeley to that list too, actually.
I can’t think of anything to write about this shirt. I mean, it’s a huge walrus on a shirt–what do you say? I will offer that I like the grey version the most (by far). Other than that I’m pretty much typing to add word count to this post, because I feel weird “writing” a post with less than fifty words. I just passed fifty? Sweet, thanks for letting me know. I’m done.
Check it out at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. It’ll cost you $28.00
P.S. I really do dig this shirt despite not having anything (n.e.thing) to say about it.
P.P.S. This shirt is a tribute to the music blog entitled “The Walrus”, which I previously haven’t read, but I’m going to start now.
P.P.P.S. This post has 127 words (not counting this last P.P.P.S.)
I’m sad to announce that Vintage Vantage, one of my favorite tee companies, will be closing up shop for good. After 9 years of selling some awesome and comfortable shirts, they will be done. It’s a sad day.
I guess some good does come out of it though: They have to clean out all their stock, which means every shirt of theirs is on sale for $9.50. That’s a bargain.
Go over and check out the stuff. Help them close with a bang, rather than the dreaded whimper.
After beginning to read through the 700 emails I’ve allowed to amass in my inbox (yeah, that’s why I suck at responding), I came across this awesome new brand called Anti Monkey. They’ve just released their first collection, aptly entitled “What the Fuck.” The collection consists of 12 different designs of the middle finger (and surrounding hand) in all its glory; each design wanting to tell its own story. I’ll let them give you a little picture of the meaning behind it:
…our brainchild ANTI MONKEY, our riot against boredom and mediocrity, manifested in shameless T-shirt prints. Our first statement is the collection What The Fuck, which is about celebrating life, encouraging self-staging, gender swapping. Each print stands for one middle-finger-story, e.g. of a sparkling Ladyboy, jiggle-wiggle Mr. Pudding, rough & tough Rocky, schick and proud Madam.
I dig the designs, as well as the accompanying message behind them. You can pick up all the designs at the Anti Monkey website. They’ll run you 25 euros each (which is finally close to $25! Thanks exchange rate).
Print Liberation is at it again (it being making cool shirts). The design isn’t complex at all, it’s just simple elements combined excellently to make a quality shirt.
I also like it because it’s not super in your face, as some “green” shirts can be. It’s a good design first, and a political message second (at least in my interpretation).
You can pick this design up for $22.00 at Print Liberation. Unsurprisingly, it’s printed on organic shirts.
Pirate Bath is a company who (whom?) I’ve featured before. They’re also one of my “favoriter” brands, so I wanted to share them again in case anyone missed out on the first post.
This one, aptly titled “Mouth”, is probably my third favorite out of the five designs they currently have. I dig the sketch style and the horizontal lines on the back are just class (World Cup speech infiltrating my typing).
You can check out all their offerings over at the Pirate Bath store.
Man do I love the world cup–it’s why I never have time to post anymore. This is officially my favorite World Cup shirt (that I’ve seen…). It wins by a land slide. I hope you’ll see why.
You can purchase it here for $30. I recommend you do so.
Although I currently have no gainful employment (unless you count this blog?), I can still dig this shirt from Random Objects and empathize with many of my friends. It reminds me of something I’d see at Print Liberation (a brand I post about quite often). Although, that’s not to knock Random Objects–they’ve got their own thing going and they do it well.
I like that they went a step beyond just slapping “Underpaid” in a slick font on a shirt. It’s smart, and smart is good.
You can pick this one up at Random Objects, who you can also expect to see posted on this blog much more in the future. It’s printed on a gray American Apparel tri-blend shirt, which is comfortable to the max.
