The level of awesome of this shirt is pretty damn high. The hat, glasses, big chain, and what looks to be grill (maybe not? You tell me) on the bear all make this shirt quite ill. I guarantee this one sparks some weird conversations/comments.
Pick it up on American Apparel for $18.00 at Go Ape Shirts.
I haven’t been alive (or even nearly alive) for any of the campaigns featured at Retro Campaigns, so I wasn’t sure what tee to pick when they asked me to review one, as I’ll admit my acquired knowledge of past presidential campaigns is fairly lacking (this sentence sounds awkward, oh well!). I finally settled on this one because it’s not time specific – it’s as relevant today (or nearly) as it was during Vietnam, and it has a good message. If you don’t know what the slogan is, 5 of the words are We Don’t Want Your **** War, I’ll leave you to figure out the fifth in the interest of being work/family friendly.
The shirts are printed on American Apparel, with nice soft prints – just the way I like them. I’d definitely recommend picking these up if you want to show off your political know-how.
I’ll leave you with Retro Campaign’s background of the shirt:
American opposition to the Vietnam War, propelled largely by young adults and college students in small numbers in the mid-1960s, grew into a national phenomenon by the end of the decade and on into the 1970s. As the War pushed seemingly endlessly forward, so did the protests. The draft, first-time-ever television coverage of combat, the Kent State shootings, the My Lai massacre and relentlessly depressing news about the war effort in general contributed to a nationwide beating drum of anti-war sentiment.
This is the ultimate picture taking tee! Exploding out of the lenses is a watercolor ghost Cheesin’ for the camera!
I’m severely disappointed that this shirt is sold out in guy’s medium. I can sometimes squeeze into a guy’s small, so I’m actually debating buying that and hoping it works out.
Pick it up for only $15 on sale at Lucky Stripes. Poke around and check out their other designs to, they’ve got some good ones (they’ll probably be written about by me eventually either way).
Just got an email from Andy about his clothing line AndyMonsters (wonder where the name came from?). He’s released two new designs that give 100% (thats alot more than usual) of the proceeds to charity.
I’m trying to raise money for two causes. One is the Water Project which builds wells to provide clean drinking water in third world countries. The other is Smile Train which performs surgeries for children born with cleft palates. Philanthropy is a huge part of our line and was hoping you could help raise awareness on the issues.
All the designs are really unique and well done. He’s based them all on Teddy Monsters instead of Teddy Bears.
Use the code “summer” for 15% off your order. T-Shirts run about $25-28 and are on what looks to be American Apparel. Check them out at AndyMonsters.
This collaboration from Bucky Lastard and Brand New Intention is pretty sweet, especially for you card fans out there. I’m not sure if On Tilt is a specific term for something (does anyone know), but I think this shirt would work for anything card related (poker for me).
Brand New Intention seems to be new, but I think they’re definitely a brand worth watching. You can pick this up for $24 on American Apparel at their shop.
Apart from the title, which I think turns this into a really cheesy design, I like this week’s offering from Uneetee. I like the effect used on the skeleton (whatever that is). Just one thing though, didn’t anyone ever tell the artist that the heart isn’t in the center of the body? I’m sure that would draw some comments from your resident smart ass.
Pick it up on royal blue American Apparel for only $12.
It’s been aÂ very long time since the last post. Part of that was vacation, and part was laziness, but I’m back now, so here we go. I love today’s derby winner from Shirt.Woot, which features the Tin Man whooping C3PO in what should be an epic battle.
You can grab it for only $10 (with free shipping) on an American Apparel tee at Shirt.Woot.
I was just watching a few hours of shark week yesterday (lots of stuff on great whites, plus some Dirty Jobs), so this shirt comes at a fitting time. If you don’t know what shark week is, read up on it at Discovery Channel’s website, or, even better, watch some on the aforementioned channel.
Jon, the owner of Mediocre Clothing, is pretty cool, so you’re supporting a good shop. Also, he’s created a coupon code, troundup, that’s good for 20% off your order until next Friday. Check it out at Mediocre Clothing.
It’s been awhile between posts again, I’m still trying to remedy the huge wait. But, I had to stop in today because I really like this new one from Uneetee. It’s available in both silver and white, but the silver is definitely my favorite. The reason I like it? One samurai is pretty B.A., but two samurai (samurais?) is just over the top.
So I guess I failed at that whole daily posting thing, but I figure this is still better than the previous 2+ weeks of silence. I’ll slowly get back into it (I think). Also, if you emailed me and I never responded, I apologize, I have tons of email and it’s hard to sort through all of it.
Enough with the housekeeping’ish stuff, lets get on to today’s shirt. I’m not gonna lie, this shirt is pretty BA. Star Wars, and especially Chewy, kick some major ass, and by having just the huge, simple print on the front, this shirt really captures that. They also have other Star Wars characters, but Chewy is by far the best.
Pick it up for $25 at Chop Shop.
I couldn’t get good product pictures because of flash, so you’ll have to check them out on the site.
