Threadless has just released an absolutely brilliant t-shirt in their recent batch of tees. It’s a combination of Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, and the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Neither are fans of letting people pass, so, were they to ever meet, it would result in an impasse, much like this shirt depicts. Kudos to Verso for thinking up this awesome design. It combines two great movies, and is also absolutely hilarious. It’s just a great design.
You can buy Impasse (which you should) for $20 at Threadless. Remember to check my Threadless coupon list before buying anything. Right now you can get 20% off on Hoodies, although I don’t think there’s any current discount for t-shirts. Still, $20 for a design this awesome isn’t bad at all.
I’m a little late letting you guys know about this t-shirt as it’s only on sale for four more hours. I like it so much I had to post it anyway, though. It’s essentially an 80’s 8-bit interpretation of George R. R. Martin (and HBO’s) Game of Thrones series. It’s awesome. You can grab it within the next four hours for $10.00 at Tee Fury. That’s so cheap you have no reason not to pick it up!
First, i want to remind you guys about my exclusive 30% off deal with Threadless. Until tomorrow (November 14th) at 10 am CT you can get a massive 30% off any order of $25 or more. You get an extra 10% off over the second best deal with troundup’s exclusive offer. I’m pretty happy about that, and I hope you’ll take advantage of the offer over the next 16 or so hours. To get the 30% off, just click this link, or visit the post I linked to above for more specific directions.
Next, I want to also feature one of Threadless’ new releases, “Real Vampires”. I don’t entirely love the execution of the design (I think they could have done it better), but I love the fact that it mocks Twilight (sorry Twilight fans! It’s not personal), and I still find the design pretty funny. It also very much preaches the truth–real vampires do not sparkle, they sleep during the day and do cool stuff at night. As I said, I think they could have designed the shirt more creatively, but I still like it.
To sum up–get 30% off at Threadless until tomorrow morning, and show your love for true vampires.
Although I don’t follow comics that much, I assume Comic-Con is coming up in the near future. To celebrate, Threadless released some awesome comic themed shirts, that should appeal to both comic lovers and the broader populace. As I said, I’m not a huge comic fan, but I do dig these releases. They’ve also made it possible to buy the four main designs in a discounted 4-pack, which is pretty cool (and not something they do that often). The t-shirt in the top right is definitely my favorite.
You can pick up the 4-pack for $74, or you can buy the individual t-shirts for standard Threadless prices ($20). I will keep you updated if any Threadless coupon codes pop up. I don’t think there are any active codes currently, but I will definitely keep my eyes peeled.
I read Game of Thrones way back before there was an HBO series dedicated to it. In fact, it was one of my favorite fantasy series growing up. I don’t read much fantasy nowadays, but I did thoroughly enjoy HBO’s interpretation of Mr. Martin’s excellent story. I also enjoy Snorg Tees take on Game of Thrones’ rise to prominence. Despite the Lannisters being, well, major pricks, I still do enjoy this t-shirt. For those who don’t know, the Lannisters are an incredibly rich family, making this blinged out shirt very applicable, and very funny.
I give props to Snorg Tees for making a pretty clever and humorous Game of Thrones t-shirt. You can pick it up for only $19.95 at Snorg Tees. I believe they still print on American Apparel. I also recommend that you check out Game of Thrones in either book or TV show form (or both).
I was always a Star Wars kid growing up, and I never really enjoyed Star Trek all that much. Therefore, I very much like this t-shirt from 604 Republic. It’s called “Beam This!”, and has the ever-awesome Darth Vader throwin’ a powerful upper-cut against some poor chap from Star Trek. I think the symbolism is quite clear (if you’re a Star Trek fan, you’re probably never going to read my blog again. Sorry!).
As with most 604 Republic t-shirts, I think the design is quite funny and very well executed. You can pick it up for $19.95 at 604 Republic. I’ve also got an exclusive 604 Republic coupon which will save you a solid 15% off your order, making the tee only $16.95.
I just got an email from Rob at GraphicLab about their cool new Star Wars themed t-shirt (Chewbacca to be exact). This design, titled Chew Toy, is a very quirky take on the Mos Eisley Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope (I think I got that right). I believe the little toy Chewbacca is dragging around is Greedo, although it has been some time. Even if my details are possibly a bit fuzzy, I still think this is a fun and fan-specific Star Wars shirt. It’s also a bit goofy, which I always like.
If you dig Chewbacca’s Chew Toy and want to pick it up for yourself, it’ll cost you only $10.00 at GraphicLab. The shirt is only on sale until Sunday, and then it’s gone for good. This makes it quite a limited edition, and also makes it essential not to delay if you want to pick the shirt up and wrap it around your torso.
The glorious reason for living that is Shark Week is almost upon us. In two days, Discovery Channel will be swimming (shitty pun…) in a metric ton of shark programming. Now, one could let last years disappointing Shark Week impostor (what the hell was that, Discovery? I want more than just shark attack shows) get in the way of their excitement. I will not do that though. I have faith that Discovery will get back on the horse and actually teach me about sharks. I wanna see sharks, not the same five people who got attacked by sharks. Plus, it gives sharks an undeserved bad rep. So, despite these lamentations, I will still muster up the excitement that Shark Week has commanded in the past. As such, I wanted to write this post up with just a few cool shark week t-shirts. If you order quickly enough you might be able to get them in time for the festivities.
This first one, Live Every Week Like It’s Shark Week from Jon Kruse at Mediocore Clothing, is most definitely my all-time favorite Shark Week t-shirt. It manages to combine two awesome things–Shark Week and 30 Rock–into one great t-shirt. I already own this tee, and I will be doing my best to wear it all week.
This second tee, A Day to Remember from Victory Records, also manages to bring in the 30 Rock quote. They also depict very well what Shark Week was last year–a bunch of Sharks chomping down on unsuspecting humans. I love the sheer carnage going on in this shirt. It’s officially my second favorite Shark Week shirt. It costs $20.00 and is printed on American Apparel.
I don’t like this design quite as much as the previous two shirts. Still, if you like sharks, you can show it with this shirt. It’ll run you $26.97 at Palmercash.
It’s surprisingly difficult to find good Shark Week t-shirts on the Internet. There is an abundance of crappy designs, but only a few good ones. If I missed a cool shark shirt please let me know. This post isn’t meant to be comprehensive or anything, but I’m always looking to add quality Shark Week tees to my posting catalog.
