I could probably just go through Poketo’s site and post each and every shirt they sell (which will most likely end up happening eventually anyway), because I love them all.
As for this one, I really like the geometric trees, and I think the colors are just the purtiest thing. I also like the geometry of the reflection in general (I think this is the most I’ve ever used “geometry” and “like” together).
This shirt, Symphony, resides in Fullbleed’s newest set of releases, Series 10, and is pretty damn hot on the hot to not scale (like a 10, with 10 setting an impervious ceiling). I like the idea of a dude directing cascading colors all over your shirt. If someone makes a shirt which does that in real time, it might one up this one, but for now, I think Symphony is in a pretty solid situation.
If you share my affection, you can pick this up for $19.00 at Fullbleed, printed on American Apparel blanks.
I’ve really dropped the ball on posts…sorry. But, I think this is pretty cool, maybe it can help make up for it?
For the next month, you can get 30% off at Owl Movement by using the code “owlmerch30“. As you may have noticed, Owl Movement has been on my favorite t-shirt companies list since the beginning. This is because they have awesome shirts and an awesome style. They haven’t released any new series for a while, but I hope that changes.
Go buy some shirts for 30% off at their store.
I haven’t posted about an individual Threadless shirt in a long time, but boy oh boy did this shirt make me want to change that. I like everything about it, from the crazy awesome drawing style, to the yellow t-shirt, to the minimal use of white for just the sun, clouds, smoke and wagon covers. It looks awesome.
Both characters are pretty cool looking, but I think I’m pulling for the bad guy on the back of the shirt. It’s all about the hat/cape looking coat combo.
Beautiful/Decay, who I love but haven’t posted about in awhile, have just launched their Spring 2010 line! I’m really happy about this–part of the reason I hadn’t posted in awhile was because I hadn’t heard from them in an equally long while. That changed today. I really like the Spring 2010 Line. There are just so many gems in there. I’ve picked five of my favorites (read more to see them all), but I could have easily picked so many more.
F. Scott Fitzgerald is one my top three favorite authors (and as I think about it now, maybe even my favorite…est). I recently got a huge book of his short stories which has only cemented my love for him even more. I’m only about halfway through, but the insight he has into humans and relationships and life in general is just astounding. I connect with his stories so much, and I believe that is what truly makes great literature.
A lot of the short stories in the huge anthology I bought come from Tales of the Jazz Age (which includes The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), so this shirt is very applicable for me right now. I also just think the design looks vintage and cool, and I really like the concept behind Out of Print Clothing, so I’m happy to support them.
You can pick this one up for $28.00 at Out of Print Clothing. Also, for each shirt they sell, Out of Print Clothing will donate one book to communities in Africa through their partner, Books for Africa. That’s awesome.
I just posted about Ugmonk’s yes/no combo shirts a few days ago, but this news warrants another Ugmonk post in just four days. Jeff (the artist) has just dropped two brand spankin’ new designs. They’re fresh from the presses and ready to envelop your body in Ugmonk design and American Apparel goodness.
I really like both of them–Ugmonk can do no wrong in my eyes. You can pick both of these up at the Ugmonk store (and yeah, we gots Ugmonk coupons all up in this blog). They’ll run you $21.60 if you use the coupon. Also, check out Jeff’s applicable blog post if you want some behind the scenes photos of the design process–cool stuff!
P.S. I would love it if Jeff did a special edition “8 days a week” shirt with the same design scheme as a shout out to The Beatles. I would buy that in an instant.
Poketo has amazing taste in products. I’m not just talking about t-shirts–their wallets, prints, and pretty much everything else are all great. I’m probably going to end up buying about three prints, a wallet, and maybe this shirt. If I had a money tree I’d be getting a whole helluva lot more than that too.
As for this shirt, I have a full-on love affair with Marcus Oakley’s (the artist) style. It’s a superb illustration, and we could all benefit from taking this sweet-looking monster’s advice.
You can pick this one up for $28.00 at Poketo. I really recommend you check out the rest of their stuff as well. And yeah, we have a Poketo coupon, although I think it just expired yesterday unfortunately.
