I really like Pirate Bath Clothing’s style–the designs are clean and simple but still attractive and cool. I really, really like them. I’ve noticed more and more big all-over prints, so this is a refreshing addition. It looks like every shirt comes with the design on front and either blue or black stripes on the back.
Jodi, the person behind Pirate Bath, has been hand painting all the shirts herself in the garage. But…she wants to start screen printing, but as some people know that can be kind of expensive at the beginning. So check out her kickstarter page and donate or buy some shirts!
Spotted this on Coty’s blog and laughed right away. I really like the creativity, and as Coty mentioned, if you buy this for any web designer I feel like it has to bring a smile to their face. I might even buy this for myself even though I suck at web design. It’s for sale for $25 at Pop + Shorty on an American Apparel tri-blend tee (really comfortable).
God Damn–this is hot. DBH is offering free shipping on any order size (even one shirt!). Also, that means if you wanna buy shirts through me for 30% off you don’t have to pay shipping no matter what. So a $20 shirt becomes $14, and a $25 shirt becomes $17.50. That’s pretty cheap. Just shoot me an email at crn001 (-at-) gmail.com and I can get you squared away right away. I’ve got tons of DBH dollars to go around.
Lastly, on my Design by Humans related housekeeping, I updated the site with a new coupon code.
Everyone have a great fall–it’s real pretty out, and buy some DBH shirts to look cool and stay warm in.
That certainly is a very big and very cool looking fifth eye. This shirt somewhat creeps me out, but in a good way. I definitely like it. I also just spent like 4 hours doing tedious homework, so that might contribute to creepiness of a huge fifth eye on a two-headed dude. You can check this out at the always awesome Resist Today. Check out their wallets too–they cool.
I knew these shirts would be coming (they’ve actually been out much sooner than this post, but I’m slow on the uptake). I haven’t actually seen the clip, but it’s been described to me many times, and I’ve seen the numerous spin off pictures, so I think I get the gist. Here are two shirts from the outburst, one by Busted Tees and one by Retro Plus Apparel. So here we go:
And just because it’s funny…
“Bird by bird.” “Show don’t tell.” Melvin is a literal interpretation of the streaming conscious. It is an ink drawing on paper that has adapted nicely to the t-shirt medium. Its position on the shirt invites visual curiosity.
I really like the illustration on this one–Melvin looks really cool. His “streaming conscious” is also cool looking, and is an interesting concept for a shirt. I’m really glad they went with a wrap around print for this one, because if it was all on the front of the shirt it would not be nearly as effective. I just wish I could find a little more zoomed in view of what he’s thinking about.
Rhetoric prints on their own unique blanks, which usually means they’re really comfortable (although I’ve yet to try one, so I can’t 100% make that claim–it’s just an educated guess). Check it out!
Also, get free shipping with the coupon code TROUNDUP09.
I think I’ve made a few comments before about foil being awesome, which makes me all the more happy to announce that Design by Humans will be releasing two foil using shirts in the next two days (well, today and tomorrow technically). According to the newsletter it’s been several months since they’ve used foil, but I can’t say I ever remember seeing them use it, so I was pretty psyched by the email. I like both the shirts, but Chaos Theory by Mathiole is my definite favorite. The blue foil just looks totally rad. Check em out!
This post doesn’t serve much purpose other than highlighting three band shirts that I bought and am incredibly psyched to receive. Actually, I guess there is some small purpose, because sometime soon I’ll be digging through the plethora of shirts out there and picking my favorite for each (being Grateful Dead, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan–I wanted to buy some shirts from obscure bands). I usually try to buy shirts only from bands I’ve seen in concert, but that’s not easy with these dudes,although I did see Phil Lesh and Friends at Bonnaroo and almost saw Dylan. I’ve yet to get close to seeing The Beatles though (surprise!). So yeah, here are the three I bought, and expect more detailed posts for all of them soon. Sorry that the pictures are not the greatest quality.
The Beatles (you may have seen this one before).
I also bought a bunch of other shirts recently, including Dr. Dog (who I haven’t seen, but will be seeing in about a month), The Spinto Band, Ra Ra Riot (I have three of their shirts now!), and the Cold War Kids.
P.S. Can you tell I like tie-dye?
P.P.S. I really just wanted to post something regarding music. Be my friend on last.fm!
You can’t buy this shirt anymore, and I’m not sure many could have afforded it with its $89.00 price tag, but this shirt from Christopher Tod still warrants a post in my opinion. I find it really interesting how many illegal drugs were, or still are, marketed as legal pharmaceuticals. It’s kind of ridiculous in my opinion, and this shirt somewhat pokes fun at that, and rightfully so.
Commercially introduced to the world by The Bayer Company in 1898, Heroin’s debut quickly saw rise to a new “star” in the drug world – one whose fame, or infamy is beyond dispute.
Etymology: Heroin, a derivitive of Heroisch – The German word for Heroic – this was how test subjects initially reported they felt after consuming the drug.
History: Heroin’s highly distinguished profile may make this hard to fathom, but Heroin was once available over-the-counter. From it’s introduction in 1898 until the passing of the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914 Heroin as well as cocaine and opium were unregulated.
Heroin was used in common cough syrup. As with most opioids and opiates, Heroin is an effective respiratory depressant. It was used in the treatment of the common cold, and respiratory diseases such as; Pneumonia, Influenza, Whooping Cough, Tuberculosis, etc… Of key importance; Antibiotics – such as Penicillin, were not available until the 1940’s – One of the aforementioned diseases could result in long-term debilitation or Death. To suppress the body’s coughing certainly helped a patient get the rest needed for their body to do it’s own healing. It should be noted however that opiates impair the body’s immune system.
One of the more interesting Heroin facts is that it was initially believed and advertised to be less addicting than Morphine. Therefore, Heroin was used as a treatment for Morphine addiction, which was known to some as “Soldiers’s Disease” by the association of Morphine addicts from the Civil War. This type of replacement therapy is akin to the current practice of prescribing Methadone as an effective narcotic replacement in Heroin addicts today.
Cruisin’ around on Rumplo today, I noticed an all-over print t-shirt with a model that looked vaguely American Apparel ‘ish. I’m like, “nah, that can’t be American Apparel, because that’s not their style.” But then I went to the link, and I was all like, “damn, that shit is American Apparel, and I’ve never seen that before so I’m going to post it on my super sweet t-shirt blog.” So here it is. I posted it. It’s not my favorite design ever, but it’s pretty cool, and maybe they’ll keep churning out stuff that gets even cooler.
Check it out at American Apparel.
P.S. If they’ve already done something like this, don’t comment, because I don’t delete comments and it would make me look dumb.
