I was doing my usual browse around Etsy earlier today when I came across this awesome Star Wars t-shirt gem. It’s a masterpiece of absurdity. Darth Vader riding a bicycle is just as funny on a t-shirt as I thought it would be. I love it.
You can pick up this design for $23.00 from Iron Spider’s store on Etsy. It’s printed on American Apparel.
I was browsing around Sub Pop earlier today amassing an overflowing cart of awesome vinyl albums, when I came across this gem of a t-shirt. It’s got one of those wacky characters that I love so much. I also am a fan of the “down for life” slogan. I dunno, I just like it. This shirt was originally released at the Pitchfork Festival. Now, I may have a simmering dislike (I didn’t say hatred!) for Pitchfork, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dig this shirt. Plus, I love Sub Pop, and that’s the actual name on the t-shirt. I love them not only because their awesome lineup of bands, but because they still churn out really cool vinyl releases.
You can grab this design for $18.00 at the Sub Pop store. It’s printed on a white American Apparel 50/50 blend t-shirt. The designer is Ryan Duggan, from Chicago. I’m gonna try to find some more of his stuff–I’m hoping he designs t-shirts fairly regularly.
Sorry for the delay in posting–I’ve been travelling back and forth between houses and it’s slowed me down a bit. I’m back though, and ready to dive into things with renewed vigor! Doesn’t that sound fun? Anyway, I wanted to start with the third offering from the awesome Insound and Delicious Design collaboration project. If you haven’t heard, the collaboration creates unique and extremely limited edition t-shirts for various bands. This t-shirt is for the band Washed Out, who I’m not very familiar with. I’ve heard a few of their songs and remember liking them, but that’s about it. What’s more important though, is that I like the design and I like what Insound and Delicious Design are doing, so I’m going to support them. If you’re a fan of Washed Out, you should probably buy this shirt, because it’s awesome. It also supports a cool website, slangin’ the vinyl like it’s the 60s.
Even if I didn’t know this was a band t-shirt, I would still like it. The bullseye looks awesome, and I love how they have the “W” cutting through it. The design looks great! You can pick it up for $19.99 from the Insound store. Remember, the design is very limited, so they won’t be around forever, and you won’t see a bunch of strangers wearing it. Also remember that we have an Insound coupon code page, which usually has a coupon good for 10% off (although I think that just expired, unfortunately). You should also check out Washed Out–I will definitely be familiarizing myself with them in the coming days.
I apologize if this writing seems a little “rambly”. My brain is kind of fried from doing a bunch of non-t-shirt writing, and I’m having trouble being succinct.
I just found out about Edgar R. McHerly’s t-shirt shop…and I’m in looooove with his style. He’s got that quirky touch that I’m such a big fan of. The little slogan on the site is “Don’t be surprised if the people in your head try to escape one day,” which I’d say is a pretty legitimate description of what’s happening in the shirt.
If you like this t-shirt, you should check out the rest of Edgar’s designs, as they won’t let you down. The prices are also fairly cheap–you can pick up The Escape for only $15.00. It’s printed on a lime American Apparel unisex tee (which is an awesome, awesome color. Trust me). Enjoy!
I recently posted about that awesome Best Coast t-shirt which came from Insound and Delicious Design’s collaboration project. That shirt was the first release from the duo of companies. Today, they’ve come back with a second release from another awesome band: The Walkmen. The Walkmen are a great band who I really enjoy. Funny story–I actually saw The Walkmen live twice at SXSW and XPN Festival before I ever actually listened to them. They put on a great show, and all their songs are quality. This, In the New Year, is probably my favorite song from them if you want a starting point.
As for the t-shirt design itself, I also dig that. It’s just got that simple yet creative flair that I enjoyed so much in the Best Coast shirt. I’m definitely adding this to my already overflowing (with vinyl) Insound cart. As with all the t-shirts from their collaboration, they’re printed in limited edition runs–so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Don’t dawdle! You can pick up the design for $19.99 at Insound. We’ve also got an Insound coupon code, which is currently active and good for 10% off your entire order. The shirt is printed on American Apparel. Oh yeah, be sure to check out The Walkmen as well.
Go Ape Shirts is at it again; and by “it”, I mean making really awesome t-shirts. Their latest offering, The Plumber’s Empire, delves into the much-loved world of Mario. The design depicts, in humorous and 8-bit stylized fashion, what Mario’s domain might look like on our very own planet Earth. I love both the concept and the execution–well done Go Ape Shirts! It’s also cool to check out where your home would lie on Mario’s map.
You can pick up this design for the fair price of $20.00 at the Go Ape Shirts store. It’s printed on American Apparel. Also, I apologize if this post is not written very good (sic). I know rambling abounds, and a few cliches decided to come along for the ride. However, I’m feeling fairly crappy right now, so the most elequent words are, perhaps, not flowing from my head that well. I’ll be back tomorrow with a vengeance, though!
We take a break from troundup’s regularly scheduled t-shirt posting to bring you an incredibly cute t-shirt. This shirt reminds me of the awesome reclaimed mini-robots available on Etsy (which I will be buying one of soon). It’s just something about quirky looking robots–so cool. It also helps that he’s got the whole Teenage Mutant Ninja thing going on too.
If you share my affinity for cool little robots such as this one, you can pick it up for $23.00 at the Sir Mitchell store. Sir Mitchell prints their t-shirts on American Apparel blanks (score!).
I posted a Community t-shirt back in May, and I thought that I would continue that trend since I really do like the show. The cleverness of the writing sometimes reminds me of Arrested Development (which I’ve been on a little kick of lately).
I came across this specific design while browsing around Snorg Tees. It features Greendale Community College’s incredibly outrageous attempt at eliminating the concept of race. The mascot stems from the Dean’s overwhelming desire to be 100% politically correct, but that’s a story you’ll have to get from the show. Anyway, I think it’s a good interpretation of what a Greendale Human Beings t-shirt might look like. As far as I know, this isn’t directly licensed, so I think Snorg Tees came up with it themselves. I enjoyed it, though if you don’t watch the show you’ve probably already stopped reading by now out of boredom.
You can pick this t-shirt up and support the Human Beings by going to Snorg Tees’ store. It will cost you $19.95 and is printed on those sweet American Apparel blanks I love so much. I’ve also got a Snorg Tees coupon page, although I think the most recent code has since become inactive. Talk with me in the comments about how much you love Community–I get bored with just having conversations in my head.
Ammmmmggggg. Fullbleed Series 11 has just launched, and boy is it great. As is Fullbleed’s modus operandi, there are a ton of awesome t-shirts in this series. Rob Dobi, the man behind Fullbleed, has one of my favorite t-shirt design styles (hence why he’s been on my “favorite t-shirt companies” list since pretty much troundup’s inception). His designs are just so…elegant? I can’t find the adjectives I want, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Here are some of my favorite t-shirts from Fullbleed Series 11, but you should check all of them out.
In total, there are nine new t-shirts (I think I counted right). He’s also released two awesome prints. One of these prints is of Bombshell (the shirt on the bottom right), while the other is only a print. This second one, The Optimist, is a great piece of art. Definitely check it out–we can branch out a little beyond t-shirts, right? There’s a picture of it below.
Hit up the Fullbleed store to check out all the new releases. I’ve also got a Fullbleed coupon page ready to go should Rob ever release a coupon. Unfortunately, he has yet to do so. I will never lose hope, though.
I really like this newly released Best Coast t-shirt from Insound. It’s part of the newly started Insound + Delicious Design Project, which is really cool. Insound has partnered up with Chicago based Delicious Design. Together, they will create a unique t-shirt for six of their favorite bands from 2011. These shirts will be printed on American Apparel and only released in small, one-time batches. The Best Coast shirt is the first release from this awesome partnership.
As for the shirt itself, I love it. I haven’t been to California, but I imagine that this shirt holds some truth (or a lot of truth…). California is out there being all smiley and sunny while Pennsylvania is stuck with that frowny rain. I love the East coast, but California (and the West coast as a whole), still holds a particular allure to me.
You can pick this t-shirt up for a limited time from Insound. It’s printed on American Apparel and costs $19.99. I also should be able to provide an updated Insound coupon code very soon, which will most likely be good for 10% off your order.
P.S. I saw Best Coast in Philly. She was sick but it was still a pretty good show. Her voice was amazing live.
