This shirt was designed to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Popeye the Sailor (January 17th 1929 was the day of his “birth”), which I’m a little late on unfortunately. However, I am glad I managed to find it, because I dig it quite a bit.
I eat a very large volume of spinach, so I can appreciate and support Popeye’s inclination towards those muscle building green leave (not those green leaves). The design’s goofy, the colors are cool, and it’s available for 17.50 pounds from Regal Clothing. Go check it out, and support my spinach eating compadre.
Go Ape Shirts have just released their newest shirt, designed by the well known artist Olly Moss. I can’t really think of a word or a phrase that could accurately encapsulate everything about this shirt. So…just take it at face value–it’s Robocop…crossing the alps…on a unicorn, and I dig it.
You can pick it up for $20.00 at Go Ape Shirts. It’s printed on American Apparel.
Go Ape Shirts have also reprinted Hip Hop Hibernation, which remains one of my favorite shirt designs. It’s in the original moss color, as well as an all new silver edition.
I really dig this design from Sharpshirter. I’m sure there’s many the cameraman who would prefer a situation such as this one (although that might be a somewhat shortsighted view given the larger implications of not having a head).
The idea is cool, and the design came off quite well, so bravo to Sharpshirter.
You can pick it up for $22.00 at their store. They also print their designs on American Apparel blanks.
The gnome on this shirt looks super goofy, he’s got a killer beard going on, and I love the color (mint) of the blank. He’s also apparently into some shady shit based on the bullet blowin’ a whole in his hat. These are all quality characteristics of a shirt, and make me like this shirt.
You can pick this one up for the freshly lowered price of $14.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (the best makers of the mint color).
This shirt is not only a very funny play on words, but it’s also visually awesome because Mr. T is kind of a bonified badass.
I love how subtle his face is–most Mr. T shirts just put his face on a yellow shirt. This one is better. The shading effect (if thats the right term) that Atslopes have used just looks great, and Mr. T is sporting a great facial expression.
So yeah, I like it. You can pick it up on sale for $20 at Atslopes. It’s printed on American Apparel.
I just got an email from Melissa of Unleash Studio about their new animal series of shirts. The shirts all feature animals with a somewhat “human” twist–fashionista boots in the case of my favorite design here.
The designs are all unique and creative and have some pretty sweet c0l0r choices (this shirt for example). A portion of the profits will also be donated to help animals lead better lives, which is always cool.
You can pick these bad boys up for $24.00 at Unleash Studio. They’re printed on American Apparel.
I’m a big fan of pigeons, especially those ballsy ones that aren’t afraid to stare you down in the middle of the street. Pigeons take on that aggressive air so common with city dwellers, and that is awesome.
Consequently, I dig this shirt from Random Objects. The pigeon staring out from his origami counterpart is quite piercing…in a pigeony kind of way.
You can pick this up for $20.00 at Random Objects. It’s printed on American Apparel 2001 tees, a quality choice.
I can’t think of anything to write about this shirt. I mean, it’s a huge walrus on a shirt–what do you say? I will offer that I like the grey version the most (by far). Other than that I’m pretty much typing to add word count to this post, because I feel weird “writing” a post with less than fifty words. I just passed fifty? Sweet, thanks for letting me know. I’m done.
Check it out at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. It’ll cost you $28.00
P.S. I really do dig this shirt despite not having anything (n.e.thing) to say about it.
P.P.S. This shirt is a tribute to the music blog entitled “The Walrus”, which I previously haven’t read, but I’m going to start now.
P.P.P.S. This post has 127 words (not counting this last P.P.P.S.)
After beginning to read through the 700 emails I’ve allowed to amass in my inbox (yeah, that’s why I suck at responding), I came across this awesome new brand called Anti Monkey. They’ve just released their first collection, aptly entitled “What the Fuck.” The collection consists of 12 different designs of the middle finger (and surrounding hand) in all its glory; each design wanting to tell its own story. I’ll let them give you a little picture of the meaning behind it:
…our brainchild ANTI MONKEY, our riot against boredom and mediocrity, manifested in shameless T-shirt prints. Our first statement is the collection What The Fuck, which is about celebrating life, encouraging self-staging, gender swapping. Each print stands for one middle-finger-story, e.g. of a sparkling Ladyboy, jiggle-wiggle Mr. Pudding, rough & tough Rocky, schick and proud Madam.
I dig the designs, as well as the accompanying message behind them. You can pick up all the designs at the Anti Monkey website. They’ll run you 25 euros each (which is finally close to $25! Thanks exchange rate).
Don’t ask (or expect) me to explain what this shirt is about or why I really, really like it. I have referenced my enjoyment of shirts with bikes on them in the past, but that’s usually limited to old-fashioned bikes. I guess if you throw Chewbacca on a bike, it will allow modern day bikes to slide into my categorical like system.
You can pick it up for $24.00 at Kindred Market, who launch a new brand on their site every week, which is pretty cool, not to mention prolific.
P.S. I also love the name of the shirt.
P.S.S. Sorry for not posting to much, I’ve been addicted to the World Cup and Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 on ma Xbox (among other things).
