Although I currently have no gainful employment (unless you count this blog?), I can still dig this shirt from Random Objects and empathize with many of my friends. It reminds me of something I’d see at Print Liberation (a brand I post about quite often). Although, that’s not to knock Random Objects–they’ve got their own thing going and they do it well.
I like that they went a step beyond just slapping “Underpaid” in a slick font on a shirt. It’s smart, and smart is good.
You can pick this one up at Random Objects, who you can also expect to see posted on this blog much more in the future. It’s printed on a gray American Apparel tri-blend shirt, which is comfortable to the max.
So I was a little late to the game on this one. But…I guess the benefit of the oil still leaking is that this shirt is still relevant even if I’m 30+ (I couldn’t find the exact start date) late.
Print Liberation is never shy to point the finger at various instances of douchebaggery happening around the world, which is one of the reasons I like them. They also make the presentation of such finger pointing look pretty sweet, which is icing on the cake.
You can pick up “Oil Blows” for $18.00 at Print Liberation. It’s printed on an American Apparel blank.
P.S. Guess who’s not patronizing BP (whenever knowingly possible)? Me.
This one from RandR is pretty flippin awesome. Without the title of the shirt, it will probably only look like a 3-d owl with a gun (sans 3-d glasses), but I’m totally cool with that.
I’m also transferring to Temple University, whose mascot is the owl, which gives me an extra connection to this shirt. Our mascot doesn’t carry a gun though (unfortunately).
You can pick it up for $14.00 at RandR. Sadly, sizes are somewhat limited (they don’t have my size ).
This shirt, Symphony, resides in Fullbleed’s newest set of releases, Series 10, and is pretty damn hot on the hot to not scale (like a 10, with 10 setting an impervious ceiling). I like the idea of a dude directing cascading colors all over your shirt. If someone makes a shirt which does that in real time, it might one up this one, but for now, I think Symphony is in a pretty solid situation.
If you share my affection, you can pick this up for $19.00 at Fullbleed, printed on American Apparel blanks.
I’ve really dropped the ball on posts…sorry. But, I think this is pretty cool, maybe it can help make up for it?
For the next month, you can get 30% off at Owl Movement by using the code “owlmerch30“. As you may have noticed, Owl Movement has been on my favorite t-shirt companies list since the beginning. This is because they have awesome shirts and an awesome style. They haven’t released any new series for a while, but I hope that changes.
Go buy some shirts for 30% off at their store.
This shirt is goofy as hell and I love it. I think there’s a real reason why evolution didn’t give cats 8 legs–it would look ridiculous. So yeah, I love this shirt from bluchez, and I love punny stuff.
Grab it starting around $18 at MySoti. You can customize the colors and choose the blank it’s printed on. Also, this is unrelated, but MySoti is now offering custom designed lamp shades, which is totally badass.
First, sorry for the lack of posts. Classes are ending/it’s final time so I’ve been a little swamped. Anyway…
I just got an email about the new Go Ape Shirts design, Vintage Pretension, and I’m diggin’ it. Not only is the text witty and very, very true, but the design is pretty snazzy itself. I’d go as far as to say the design is perfect for the text/concept involved. It’s very vintagy and the guy has some real steeze going on.
I can picture the conversation going on between the two of the, and that, that is a beautiful thing. I wonder what classical artist he’s going to talk about once he gets done educating the kid on Proust.
You can pick this one up for $18.00 at Go Ape Shirts.
F. Scott Fitzgerald is one my top three favorite authors (and as I think about it now, maybe even my favorite…est). I recently got a huge book of his short stories which has only cemented my love for him even more. I’m only about halfway through, but the insight he has into humans and relationships and life in general is just astounding. I connect with his stories so much, and I believe that is what truly makes great literature.
A lot of the short stories in the huge anthology I bought come from Tales of the Jazz Age (which includes The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), so this shirt is very applicable for me right now. I also just think the design looks vintage and cool, and I really like the concept behind Out of Print Clothing, so I’m happy to support them.
You can pick this one up for $28.00 at Out of Print Clothing. Also, for each shirt they sell, Out of Print Clothing will donate one book to communities in Africa through their partner, Books for Africa. That’s awesome.
I just posted about Ugmonk’s yes/no combo shirts a few days ago, but this news warrants another Ugmonk post in just four days. Jeff (the artist) has just dropped two brand spankin’ new designs. They’re fresh from the presses and ready to envelop your body in Ugmonk design and American Apparel goodness.
I really like both of them–Ugmonk can do no wrong in my eyes. You can pick both of these up at the Ugmonk store (and yeah, we gots Ugmonk coupons all up in this blog). They’ll run you $21.60 if you use the coupon. Also, check out Jeff’s applicable blog post if you want some behind the scenes photos of the design process–cool stuff!
P.S. I would love it if Jeff did a special edition “8 days a week” shirt with the same design scheme as a shout out to The Beatles. I would buy that in an instant.
Hot from the email account–you can pre-order ReThink Clothing’s newest design, Camera Crackup, for $15 rather than the usual $20. As pictured, it comes in black or dark blue and is printed on American Apparel blanks.
This one is kind of in the same vein as their last release, a technicolor typewriter. I like it! I’m excited to see what comes next. Go check it out. You should also be able to save 20% with a ReThink Clothing coupon–I think it’s still active.
