I like to imagine Shakespeare as the cocky bastard portrayed in this shirt. You can’t help but laugh at some flowery language using, cocky dude wearing that collar and rocking that hair. I also like that Headline Shirts mildly compare Shakespeare to Snoop Dogg in their usual hilarious product description, which I will now quote because it deserves everyone’s literary attention:
William Shakespeare’s Lost Sonnet
O! how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour, which doth in it live.
The canker blooms have full as deep a dye…
Hang on, cut the music for a second. Hi, reader, it’s Will Shakespeare here. You know, I don’t meant to come off as cocky, but this shit basically writes itself. I honestly don’t know what the big deal is. Do you know that I invented almost 2,000 words on my own? So I’m literally just making up words as I go. You know who else made up words on the fly? Snoop Dogg. You think history will remember him as a literary genius?
Yup, I make up a bunch of schmancy words for linguists to guffaw over, toss in a few “haths” and “doths” for the drama majors, and — BAM! — instant classic every time. Seriously, there have been entire college courses taught about stuff I basically wrote on the crapper. Tellin’ you, this shit writes itself.
I dig it. You can pick it up on sale right now for $15.00 at Headline Shirts. It’s down from the usual price of $19.00 because it’s their newest release, and it’s printed on a 100% cotton 30/1 blank.
Eleven NBA Championships don’t lie–Phil Jackson has got to be the greatest coach ever. More importantly though, he seems like a legitimately cool person. Part of his personality that I like is his interest in Eastern philosophy, which has earned him the nickname Zen Master (hence the name of the shirt).
I also dig the design (well…picture), in addition to the subject content. I like how dark everything is, and I think Phil looks quite cool in this shot from his playing days at the Knicks.
Zen Master comes from Frank and Jan’s newest set of designs and can be yours for the low price of just $24.00 (I swear I’m not an infomercial writer). Buy this shirt, and support the Lakers next year as they steamroll the Heat, among others.
Hunter S. Thompson is an unequivocal badass. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas straight through in one sitting because of this fact. If you want a story of drug filled fun and mayhem I recommend you do the same.
I dig this shirt from LTD Tee because it’s simple, but still manages to capture Mr. Thompson. The hair, the glasses, the cigarette, it’s all him. Cloxboy (the artist) did a great job on this one.
You can pick it up for $26.99 at LTD Tee. With that $26.99, you get, in addition to the shirt, an 8×10 art print, a certificate of authenticity, some stickers, and a custom box. Pretty cool.
You can also use the coupon code “troundup” for 20% off your order, bringing it down to $21.59. A dedicated coupon page for LTD Tee will be coming soon.
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).
Palmercash, purveyors of some pretty nifty and vintage’y shirts, are having a sweet back to school sale which will give you 15% off your entire order of any shirt on the site.

You won’t regret doing it, and additionally, all the cool kids are doing it.
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’ve unfortunately not had Internet for the better part of the past week, leaving me unable to post even though I actually had time to do posting. But…I’m moved into my new apartment in Philadelphia, have working Internet, and am ready to get going. So let’s go…
These offerings come from Insound. They’ve made 10 shirts (and 10 posters) for 10 bands that had a significant impact on music in 2010. I love music (look how unique I am!), so I’m pretty embracing of such motivation. The shirts come from Beach House, Neon Indian, Liars, Titus Andronicus, Broken Social Scene, Girls, Mountain Goats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Owen Pallet.
All the designs incredibly well done, and Sonnenzimmer’s (the artist/s) style is pretty dang good. I’ve posted four of the designs from some of my favorite bands on the list, but you should check all 10 of them out. They’ll run you $22.00 over at Insound and they’re printed on American Apparel. The posters are also awesome. Check them too.
