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.”
Another somewhat expensive shirt, weighing in at $35.99, but again, worth it if you’ve got the change. I think the tear is what really makes this design, and what strengthens it’s method exponentially. The white is definitely my favorite–the design just pops more on it.
Kudos to Akomplice for a great shirt.
This shirt is an awesome play on words, combined with awesome design execution–so it’s pretty much win. The artist is Collision Theory, who’s work is always top-notch. I just wish there was a bit of a story behind this design, because it seems like there should be. Maybe you could hook us up with that randr?
This will run you $13.99 (on sale right now) at randr on an American Apparel tee.
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.
As far as I can tell, this shirt doesn’t have an official name, but the design caught my eye when I was searching through some Etsy stuff. At first I couldn’t see what the bomber was dropping, but on closer inspection, it turns out to be dropping deer into the forest.
I think it’s a pretty unique take on the whole “dropping bombs” thing, and maybe the world would be a better place if we parachuted animals in instead of dropping explosives. You can grab it on American Apparel at circlesandsquares’ Etsy shop.
I wrote about Inject Love from Beetnik Aesthetics awhile ago, so long ago that the store wasn’t even open then. I’m happy to announce that today Beetnik Aesthetics has officially opened its doors. In honor of that, all their shirts are 50%, making them $12. Go check it out.
I love the product shot for the above shirt–the ivy makes it look awesome. In general, I always like stores who put real effort into their product shots–it just makes looking at tons of t-shirts a lot cooler. I also like cool sites, and Loren (Beetnik Aesthetics owner) has one of those. Not many people can pull off a dark purple themed site well, so good job on that!
Here’s something different – Beetnik Aesthetics! It all started with a guy named Loren. Loren wanted to build a clothing brand that was more than just a few cool designs thrown on t-shirts. Loren wanted to build a brand with a message – a brand that stood for something. What happened? Beetnik Aesthetics happened. Beetnik Aesthetics is not just another trendy t-shirt company, but a lifestyle clothing brand, built on the notion that the “world is your canvas”, striving for hope, peace, love and more. One idea. One thought. One dream. Anything is possible with a forward thinking mind.
While there’s a poignant message behind this 57thirtythree shirt that not everyone may agree with, I just think it looks really, really awesome (although I do agree, while I may be guilty of doing nothing). If you want to read the message behind the shirt, I’ve quoted it below for your reading pleasure. If you want to just look at the pretty product pictures, well, you’ve probably already done that because they’re at the top of the post, just scroll up again.
Yo. Just being pissed off about how things are accomplishes nothing. Revolution, change come through ideas, actions, consideration and education. I created this design because I come across plenty of people who bitch and get angry about how things have gotten. Then quickly fall into the “How is anything I do gonna change it?”. A monkey can experience rage, but that Rage will echo briefly and amount to nothing. That’s the story and if you don’t like that story it’s also just a badass design that will make you the envy of your friends…
…with shirts from Squared Shop. They’ve got one of the better Obama shirts I’ve seen. It’s clean and simple, but still good looking. If you’re one of the quadrillions of people going down to D.C., I think there’s still time to get your shirt.
Check them out at Squared Shop.
I’m a definite fan of this Obama victory celebration shirt. In my opinion, it’s an awesome design whether you supported Barack or not. I’ll let Josh describe it in his own words from the email:
The shirt is at Barack the Vote and it’s the only thing we’re doing on the site — just one shirt. It’s simple, but memorable, recasting the iconic Barack Obama “O” logo into the popular Internet acronym “OMG” The shirt has a double meaning. On one hand, it captures the celebration and jubilation millions of people felt across the world when Obama was declared the winner on Tuesday night. And on the other hand, it alludes to the youthful energy that the Obama campaign created via its groundbreaking use of the Internet as an organizational tool.
I love skull headed guy chillin’ in the car, and how he’s way larger than the car. It’s an awesome design all around. It’s also on sale for only $10, which is a great price for a quality design printed on an American Apparel shirt. Pick it up at Strange Monster.
The propaganda is everywhere. If you don´t keep your eyes open to it then you just might choke. Design by Portland based designer Tim Brenner.
