Splatter designs are cool, especially when they go over the shoulder like this one. Also cool are birds in the splatter design (a commonplace occurrence I’m sure). And finally, one last cool thing is royal blue American Apparel shirts. So there you have it, three reasons why I like this shirt. You can pick it up for $15.00 from the relatively new brand (I believe), Rethink Clothing.
Glennz has gotten a bunch of designs printed on Threadless, so I think it’s a pretty good decision for him to open up his very own store. Right now, he’s got nine different tees printed on American Apparel. He’s got an excellent selection, it’s the same style (mostly) as the quality prints you’d see on Threadless (which makes sense). You can check out all his shirts, including Split Personality, at his shop.
For your viewing pleasure, here’s another one I like. This one’s called Dangerous Games, I think you can see why.
I was browsing around Etsy looking for t-shirts when I came across this gem from 1AEON. This is the kind of stuff you can only find on Etsy, you won’t really see this mass produced. This one is part of a limited edition, small run (it doesn’t say how small, but I’m sure there aren’t alot of them). It costs $30 and is printed on my favorite, American Apparel. You can pick this one up on Etsy.
Ogi says, “I layered drawings and scribbles. Happy deaths?” Huh?
I like the layers of drawing and scribbles – it makes for a cool shirt and some extra scary ghosts (not entirely). The sketch’y style is perfect for this design. I believe Poketo! prints on American Apparel shirts. This one comes on navy and will cost you $28. Check it out at Poketo! Apparel.
Also, this isn’t a t-shirt, but I noticed they have an excellent selection of wallets. So if you’re looking for a new wallet, check out their wallet section – you won’t be dissapointed (at least I wasn’t).
I’m usually not up late enough to post about Shirt.Woot tees in time for people to actually buy them. But, today I didn’t feel like going to sleep, so you all get to benefit. This quirky, spring themed shirt is the 2nd place shirt from this weekends Derby and it’s only $10 with free shipping (and printed on American Apparel). Check it out at Shirt.Woot.
This shirt got a lot of well deserved press back around January. I was just looking around PopJunkie today and I noticed that it was now on sale. Given that it seemed to be a popular shirt, I just thought I’d stop in to let people know that right now it is on sale for $25, as compared to the usual $35. Saving $10 ain’t bad. You can buy it by going to PopJunkie. Also, if you like their other shirts, I think right now pretty much all of them are on sale.
This is another shirt I got sent awhile ago that I have yet to post up.
Team Space Pirate is a “new type of visual art project bringing together a vision and people”. They make their shirts through the process of Doodlism, at least as far as I can tell. I’m not sure if Doodlism is an official term or something they created (I’m not an art person), but here’s the description from their site:
It’s art that has been created through self-manifestation. True art is here for every one of us, and we all have the ability to create. Doodlism is a spirituality-based art form. The art form is completely improvisational and has nothing to do skill. Through the process itself, and the passage of time one true style is developed. Every step of the journey is a positive experience. There is a feeling self-empowerment when looking back and watching your style develop and seeing personal growth. In Doodlism, if you are trying too hard to create, you have left the main principal of the art form. When you draw, you simply draw. When you paint, you simply paint.
The technique leads to a very original style for their shirts, which I find to be a good thing.
Above is the shirt they sent me. I had to use product pictures again because of my camera. You can definitely see the Doodlism coming through in the design. This is also another design with tons of detail. It may just look like an alien and his friend, but if you look closely at their bodies you can see tons of individual designs. The level of detail is just amazing.
Team Space Pirate prints their shirts on American Apparel and Intergalactic Friends can be had for $24.99
Thriving Ink sent me this shirt awhile ago, and I feel bad for not getting this review up earlier, I just lost track of this one (and another) with the whole Ireland thing. But, I’ve found it now, so you won’t miss out. Score!
First off, Thriving Ink seems like a pretty cool company. They specialize in “urban and metro sportswear”, and I recommend you read their mission statement. I like most of their designs – they’ve got a great style. It reminds me somewhat of Imaginary Foundation in some aspects (not that they’re the same, i just see similarities between the two).
The shirt they sent me came in a custom mailing envelope and was packed full of extras. Included were stickers, a spring 08 collection brochure, and even a poster. For me, the throw-ins show the company is going the extra mile.
Now on to the actual shirt – my camera seemed to be turning out blurry pictures which didn’t give the design justice, so I’m just going to use Thriving Ink’s stock pictures.
The design has so much going on – the level of detail is really amazing. There’s an old man, there’s monsters – you really just need to look at it to see everything. That being said, I think that it also looks good from far away, even if you can’t see all the detail. So a definite win-win.
They print their tees on American Apparel, with custom printed tags (they cut out the AA tags and print their own, similar to Threadless). Radical Rambunction can be had for $19.95.
Glarkware is one of the better designers out there when it comes to humorous shirts. They manage to get their humor across without simply throwing up some crass saying (like T-Shirt Hell – I’m not a fan). So, that being said, I really like “Ask me About My Crippling Shyness”. You should buy it or something, it will make you cool.
Name: Ask Me About My Crippling Shyness
T-Shirt Type: American Apparel

Scott from ThreadJunkies just shot me an email letting me know about the launch of his company. I must say they’ve got some pretty sharp designs over. There are several I like, a couple I really like, and one I really, really like. That one being “Rising”, which is featured above. I like the look of the rays spreading out from the center, and then you have what looks to be a depiction of the marines raising the US flag on Iwo Jima (I think I’m right on that).
Check out the rest of their tees too – there are some good ones.
