I like topical tees, especially when they’re well done. I’m also liking the punnage of this shirt–the pun had to be made, and I’m glad it was executed well in its making. It’s also a nice touch with the Mexican flag. So yeah, if you’re looking to shake off the Swine Flu fears, you should grab this shirt. It’s printed on the awesomely comfortable Alternative Apparel Vintage Soft blank and will run you $17.99 at Retro Plus Apparel.
So usually I don’t like this genre of shirts, and I still can’t decide if I would actually wear it, but man, this shirt made me laugh. Maybe it appeals to my immature side, but the text is totally awesome, and the execution with the weatherman and the five day forecast is perfect.
This one will run you $14.99 at Crazy Dog Shirts and I believe is printed on American Apparel. Check it out!
I believe this is more or less from a Lil Wayne song, although feel free to correct me, because I’m not 100% on my Lil Wayne quotes. That being said, irregardless of its background, I think it’s a pretty sweet shirt. The focus is obviously on the text, which is a winner in my opinion, although the rest of the design complements it well. I don’t really think you need to know where this shirt comes from to enjoy, which is a definite positive.
Also, Local Celebrity shirts are really soft (another positive). It’ll run you $22 if you join the A-list (which is free and simple, so you might as well). Check back to see if there’s ever a working Local Celebrity coupon (preview of a new troundup feature too!).
Sorry for the lack of product shots, but I couldn’t figure out how to grab the picture of an actual person wearing the shirt–but you can see that at the site.
Today’s Teextile shirt gave me a chuckle, and is one of the better/more creative Star Wars shirts I’ve seen. I just like the picture of a usually obedient, order-following Stormtrooper rocking out on his guitar.
This one will run you $12 for today only, and then $15 for the rest of the week. You can also get free shipping by using any of these links, or the code troundup. I also think I have a chance at placing in the contest they have running, which means anyone who buys through these links could win a free shirt (and I might win a MacBook! If I’m really lucky).
I got to read all about the duel between Burr and Hamilton in the book, The Founding Brothers, but if you haven’t had the same luck as me (/sarcasm), here’s a little blurb from Wikipedia:
The Burr-Hamilton duel was a duel between two prominent American politicians, the former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton and sitting Vice President Aaron Burr, on July 11, 1804. At the Heights of Weehawken in New Jersey Burr shot and mortally wounded Hamilton. Hamilton was carried to the home of William Bayard on the Manhattan shore, where he died at 2 p.m. the next day.
I feel like this is somewhat of a a detour from Busted Tee’s usual style. That’s definitely not a bad thing–I just don’t usually see them relating to obscure historical events, or at least events that alot of people don’t know about. Either way, if you get the reference, I think it’s pretty damn funny. I also think Busted Tee’s product description is pretty priceless: “Before you feel bad for Alexander Hamilton, keep in mind he was Secretary of the Treasury.”
Show off your literary knowledge and slick sense of humor at the same time with this tee from Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. Whoever came up with this design is a genius, and gets an internet slap on the back from me. I’m quoting their product description because it gave me some lulz:
Celebrate the joys of civil disobedience without all those pesky anarchy symbols and itchy ski-masks. Go ahead – stick it to The Powers That Be, minus those shattered windows and molotov cocktails.
This one will run you $36, which is kind of expensive, but definitely worth it.
I wrote about Doubletake Clothing’s first shirt a bit over a month ago, and now they’re back with the release of their second design. Again, they’ve come up with a genuinely funny shirt, although this time it’s somewhat more general (you don’t have to be an avid The Office fan to understand it). If you can’t see it, the text reads, “You are what you eat, that’s why I only eat dinosaurs”. Witty, unique and funny–it’s good stuff. It’ll run you $20 at Doubletake Clothing.
PS. The product pictures are great too.
Let’s fly to congress on our private jets wearing this shirt–I’m sure we could get some money. I didn’t know No Star got political, but I think they did a good job with this shirt. It’s hard hitting in all the right areas. You can pick it up for $24 at No Star.
If you can’t see, the contestants are: Miss Management, Miss Appropriation, Miss Used, Miss Handled, and Miss Applied. It really is a witty shirt.
