I just got an email from Tim about his ~one year old UK brand, All Round Clothing. Tim tells me All Around Clothing has been achieving some good popularity thanks to musicians wearing his t-shirts, namely Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria. All Round Clothing’s motto is “Take your passion, make it happen”, which I think everyone can respect.
As for this shirt, I think it’s a great and interesting design. Some might say that desig a t-shirt around an illustration of a fox would be difficult, but I think All Round Clothing has nailed it. I love the way they used the simple colors, as well as the “sketch-like” style of the design. They’ve got it branded, but not in an obnoxious way (I didn’t even see it at first), so I’ve got no problems with that. Also, the fox is wearing a top hat, which is sweet (and a British tie-in). You can buy the shirt for 16 pounds at All Round Clothing’s store. It’s printed on a cream American Apparel t-shirt.
I found this wicked Grizzly Bear t-shirt from Dusty Lumber on Rumplo. I don’t usually go for branded designs, but I think the grizzly is cool looking enough to win me over. You can buy the t-shirt for $15 at the Dusty Lumber shop. Dusty Lumber prints their t-shirts on American Apparel blanks, so you know the shirt will be comfortable.
Threadless just released the results of their “College! T-shirt Design Challenge” and boy are the t-shirts awesome. I would love to be one of the ten lucky schools that can now buy great mascot themed shirts from Threadless. Seriously Threadless–please make one of these for Temple University. I love the style, and I think you could do something great with our Owl mascot (Hooter!). For now, I will be forced to go without. If you go to UCLA, Alabama, Auburn, UC Berkely, University of Colorado, University of Illinois, LSU, Miami U, University of Iowa, or USC, go to Threadless and buy your school’s awesome shirt. Once again, please do this for Temple! We have tons of students and alumni.
This awesome, awesome shirt, called Uncle Reginald, comes from the brand Chuck U. This character, Reginald, is ridiculously goofy and awesome–especially the mustache. I have no idea what else to write (I’ve already used awesome three times!), so I’m just gonna tell you a bit about Chuck U. This shirt is awesome though…
Chuck U is a freelance illustrator from Minneapolis. Chuck’s done tons of illustrations and has been featured in galleries, magazines, and other things of that ilk. He sells both art prints and t-shirts, and his style is awesome (look at that again…). He has shops at both at Storenvy (7 different t-shirts), and Etsy (seems to be mostly prints). Even if you’re not planning to buy his stuff, check out his designs. You can grab this specific shirt, Uncle Reginald, at his Storenvy shop. You can also buy it as a print at Etsy.
I love this t-shirt from the fairly new brand 20sixfresh. It’s so goofily awesome–all the little details in the design are great. The main guy (the troll?) looks pretty snazzy as well. Lastly, I love that they incorporated the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia quote with the “troll toll”. This is just an overall sweet design–good stuff.
You can grab this design, which I heartily recommend, for $25.o0 at the 20sixfresh store. I’m sure these guys will keep pumping out great designs in the future.
As I mentioned, 20sixfresh is a new brand based out of Billy’s home office in the Pacific Northwest. They currently have four different designs, available in both men’s and women’s sizing.
P.S. Happy New Years everyone! Get crazy, if that’s your thing.
I couldn’t really think of a title for this post just because the t-shirts at ThenWear are so out there (a good thing). All of the t-shirts (in the section I’m linking to) depict popular historical figures as if they were on a musical tour. You’ve got Galileo’s “Don’t tell the pope” Heresy Tour, Attila’s Huns in the Sun Tour, and many other funny tour shirts. I like them very much. I’ve posted a picture of two of my favorites, but you should certainly check ’em all out.
ThenWear is newly launched (on the 5th I believe), so I’m betting they will be adding even more to their collection. Additionally, they do more than just the tour shirt, so you should check out of the rest of their funny, and sometimes ridiculous, “historical” t-shirt line. The shirts will run you ~$25 from what I’m seeing. Now go check out their store. You can get free shipping by using the code “2011StandardFree“.
I’m stopping in on this Friday night to bring you guys an awesome tee called Riding Dirty from Neckbeard Apparel (certainly an interesting brand name). The design reminds me a bit of a someecards design (a good thing), with an old-timey illustration partnered with a funny slogan. I think this tee is super funny, especially because I love those old bicycles (as I’ve mentioned on troundup about ten times now). Anyway…good concept, good execution, great t-shirt. Not much more time to write because I have to go taste test the awesome Tito’s Vodka that I picked up today! Wish me luck.
You can grab this design for $25 CAD (that’s like $5 in US Dollars, right?) at NeckBeard Apparel.
P.S. I do actually know we don’t dominate the CAD anymore. Sad times, though.
Call me a sucker for odd and obnoxious superheroes, but I dig today’s Tee Fury design. In case you can’t read it, the text says, “Here comes…BAREDEVIL. The man without pants”. The illustration is, obviously, appropriately ridiculous. It’s a goofy tee that immediately drew a chuckle from my face, and it’s getting posted up on troundup because of that.
As with all Tee Fury shirts, Baredevil will only be sold for 24 hours. It costs $10, and disappears from production in 23 hours (so don’t wait around).
