I came up with an alternate name for this shirt: “How to make an awesome looking shirt with just the letter V”.
Seriously, the shirt is so simple, yet so appealing (at least to me). I’m incredibly impressed with how they can use geometry or other very simple shapes to create such amazing designs, especially considering most of their designs are just white + one color (usually black).
The only problem is the price. The shirts are 29 pounds, which is expensive already. Throw in the exchange rate though, and these are out of reach for most people (including me). But oh well, we can just stare and enjoy.
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
I really dig this offering from Smartest Primates. I never imagined that Einstein could look so good on a shirt. I love how large and all-over they decided to make the print–it definitely would not work as well if the print were smaller.
I also love the colors–pink on grey? That would not have been my first thought, but it really looks great. They also have another, more fluorescent, color scheme that’s printed on sweatshirts (below). I think this is my favorite color scheme, but given that this blog is focused on t-shirts, I decided to bump it to the bottom.
You can pick up the t-shirt for $29.00, and the sweatshirt for $49.00. Both of those prices are sale prices, so I wouldn’t wait to buy. Need another reason not to wait? The designs are all printed with low-impact dyes and organic cotton, as well as being in limited sets of 100. You definitely won’t have to worry about running into someone with the same shirt.
Beauty in simplicity. As the title suggests, the design is comprised entirely of rain drops and rhombuses, which are put together in an excellent fashion to form an excellent shirt. This is the first of a series from Joseph Mueller at Plink Design. I’m definitely looking forward to whatever comes next! You can check out the shirt here.
PS. Interesting fact about Joseph: He rode his bike across the country after college. That’s real cool. I’d like to do that.
Here’s a unique concept for designs–Amber, from Boston, bases the designs for her shirts off of fireworks and other cool pyrotechnic (blowing things up) displays. I think you’ll agree that the result is pretty damn cool.
She’s only got one shirt released right now, but hopefully there are many more to come. Check it out!
There are a bunch of t-shirt design competitions, but it appears Kindred market has decided to up the ante by having an entire t-shirt brand contest (which is a big change from before as far as I know). Every week they launch a new brand on their site–so you can essentially expect a different style every week. It’s a cool concept–I like it.
I also like this one from recent brand winner, Epocrypha. The yellow looks great on the light blue and the simplicity of the typewriter is quite rad. It’s also pretty cheap at $14.99. You can pick this one up at Kindred Market.
Jeff Sheldon’s (owner of Ugmonk) designs are always so awesomely simple but superbly cool. This one is no exception. He manages to make a giant number two and some text into a t-shirt that I would love to wear. It’s a gift. I also think this is the best colorway for this shirt. The really light blue (I think) on forst looks great.
You can grab this one for $24.00 at Ugmonk. It’s printed on an American Apparel forest shirt. I’m also happy to offer you an Ugmonk coupon, which is hopefully still working. Check out the rest of Jeff’s stuff as well–it’s great.
Miles to Go puts out some pretty quality stuff. I enjoy how the simplicity of the colors and design can still give off such a strong feeling of…struggle. I would definitely be willing to buy an art print of this and hang it on my wall.
The Struggle is on sale for $15.99 and is printed on American Apparel.
I like this dude from Palmercash. He sports a damn fine moustache and looks good doing it. I’m not really sure what else to say. Oh wait, there’s this! For every shirt bought Palmercash will donate $10 to Movember for the Fight Against Prostate Cancer. That’s pretty cool. $10 is a pretty hefty percentage of the sale.
