I just got an email from Jaime about his company, Pistache Clothing, which he co-owns with his brother. I checked out their tees and this one is definitely my favorite. I’m usually not a fan of brand labels on t-shirts, but this one doesn’t bother me too much as it fits with the shirt’s design style. I also think the robot looks pretty dang cool. It reminds me a little bit of Wall-E. I dig it. They’ve got the design in a bunch of different colors (including some for men), but this is definitely my favorite version.
You can grab it for 24.99 Pounds over at Pistache Clothing. They’ve got a bunch of designs worth checking out. I especially recommend you browse over their hats–I found some of them pretty cool looking.

I just got an email from Vangelis (awesome name!) about a new brand called Be Positive. Though the brand name makes it pretty obvious, their t-shirts are all about, well, being positive. I checked out the store and the first tee I saw ended up being my favorite. It shows the famously emotionless Mona Lisa with a smiley emoticon super-imposed over her face. It’s a pretty goofy concept, and it’s good to see Mona finally smiling more openly. I dig it.
You can purchase this design from Be Positive for $21.90. They use Spreadshirt for their printing and fulfillment so you can do a little customization if you so desire.
I was gone for the weekend and I have a test tomorrow, so I haven’t had much time to post (lame, I know). With that being said, I did want to post a brief mention for a pretty sweet tee I saw over on Rumplo. It’s called Creature from the Black Lagoon (maybe you’ve heard of it?) and comes from 410 BC as part of their limited stock reprint collection. I find the juxtaposition of the creature with the library and glasses pretty hilarious, and the titles of the books (on the shelf) add even more humor. It’s a quirky tee, but that’s why I like it.
You can grab this design for the fairly hefty price of $35.00 at 410 BC. This batch is printed in a small run of only 50 t-shirts, so it will probably go fairly fast. It’s a perfect t-shirt to wear while you’re lounging around the house during winter (unless you don’t get winters, and then you’re gonna have to find another use for it).
I just got an email from Brett about the launch of his new t-shirt brand, Why Because. Why Because uses words and phrases (and some images) to make you laugh from looking at a t-shirt. I’ll let Brett explain in more detail:
“My motivation to start the line came out of a love for clever wording and phrases. All of the first run of shirts are based around type. Although they won’t always be typed based, they will have a humor edge to them. There are a lot of great humorous shirt brands but I figured there was room for at least one more out there. I plan to achieve world peace through humorous t-shirts. I don’t think it’s too much to hope for.”
I dig the designs they’ve got up so far–many of them are those type of goofy puns that I enjoy so much. I picked my favorite of the six release shirts to show you. It’s called Dim Sum, and it made me chuckle the most out of all the Why Because designs.
Why Because is currently holding a pre-order sale, in which all their tees are only $15. The tees are printed on American Apparel (yay!) and will ship in early December. Go check them out!
I’m long overdue for posting about this awesome new partnership. Threadless has teamed up with UNICEF and a bunch of cool artists to create a whole line of t-shirts that help benefit those in need. The t-shirts, which range in price from $18.57 to $300,000 (yes…three hundred thousand dollars) are all the dollar amount required to donate a specific item. So if you bought the $18.57 shirt, you’d be donating a mosquito net, while the $36.10 t-shirt would donate de-worming tablets. Get the gist?
The actual designs on the t-shirts are drawings of something related to the item being donated. They’re simple designs, but cool in their own way.
I suggest that you check out all the different shirts they have to offer, and then pick one up and help some people in Africa at the same time. I know I’ll be using some built up STPs to purchase one of the more expensive shirts!
I was a little shocked, and very happy, when I opened Busted Tees’ new release newsletter earlier today. Why would they make a t-shirt based on show that got cancelled years ago? Well, I don’t know why, but I sure am glad they did it. Party Down, the show this design pulls its inspiration from, is a super funny and intelligent comedy that starred Mr. Adam Scott (who is currently bringing his humor to another great show, Parks and Recreation). In the show, He’s a failed actor famous for his embarrassing beer commercial slogan of, you guessed it, “Are We Having Fun Yet?!?” This shirt immortalizes those words for all of eternity, and ties in the signature Party Down bow-tie for good measure. I think this shirt is absolutely awesome and totally hilarious, though I understand you probably have to be familiar with the show to enjoy it as much as I do.
After you’ve plowed through both seasons of Party Down (conveniently available for instant streaming on Netflix), buy this shirt from Busted Tees for only $20.00, a small price to pay for the enjoyment it will bring to other Party Down fans. Needless to say (though I’m gonna say it anyway), this shirt will probably be a huge hit at parties and other events where beer is being consumed, as well as life in general. Also, remember to use a Busted Tees coupon to save some money.
So yeah, plop down on your couch and watch some Party Down–you won’t regret it.
As usual, Glennz is serving us up some witty hilarity. This one, entitled Water Bomb Squad, doesn’t require much explanation. It’s just the kind of goofy humor that I enjoy so much, and I’m hoping you enjoy as well. As usual, his illustrations are excellent and really allow the humor to shine. It’s just a great tee–which is what I’ve come to expect from Glennz.
The reason I chose to feature this design now is that it’s currently on the “Save Wave” at Glennz. What the “Save Wave” actually means can be easily answered by looking at the top of Glennz’s site, but for our purposes the only important thing to know is that this design is on sale for only $14.95. It’s only on sale for that low price for a limited time though, so don’t wait around and miss out. So yeah–pick up this hilarious t-shirt for only $14.95 at the Glennz site.
