Random Objects just dropped the beginning of their summer line, including this “Be Polite” t-shirt. I think it’s something everyone should be reminded of. I’m always very polite, until someone is rude to me, and then I get super passive aggressive and disinterested. Anyway, it’s very clean, and I like the white on blue colors.
You can buy this shirt and show your politeness for $24.00 at Random Objects. They print on American Apparel t-shirts.
If you’re into sports at all, you’re probably familiar with the Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) elbow incident (and by “incident, I mean Harden getting KO’d). Well, they get a chance to see each other again the playoffs. The first round went to the beard (Harden), so I would say this shirt is pretty accurate. Overall, I think this is a funny and topical t-shirt. If I lived in Oklahoma City and was a Thunder fan I would definitely buy this tee and wear it to a game. Good stuff.
You can buy this t-shirt for $15.99 from Viva La Barba. They use Spreadshirt for their fulfillment. Be sure to check out round two of the Lakers/Thunder series on Wednesday night.
P.S. Does anyone notice that Harden’s beard seems to grow by the minute? Metta really doesn’t have a chance at this point.
I’m finally done with final exams and ready to get back to sharing some great t-shirts with all of you guys, and I’d like to start with this one. Unfortunately, because of those finals, I’m a few days late on the news cycle. Still, hopefully by now you’ve heard of Amare Stoudemire’s rage-filled punching of a fire extinguisher which sidelined him for one playoff game. Well, this t-shirt captures that moment for all eternity by replacing the “R” in Amar’e's name with a fire extinguisher. Pretty witty and cool.
This design will only cost you $20.00 at Crosstown NYC, who are legitimately located in Queens, New York. The t-shirt is very limited edition (I believe a run of only 130), so be sure to get in quickly.
This t-shirt is an awesome play on the very recognizable Jack Daniels logo. Now, I’m not a huge Jack Daniels fan (Woodford Reserve for the good stuff, Jim Beam if you’re trying to be cheap), but I do enjoy this shirt very much. It’s very witty, and I love the different slogans–”Quality Personality Except When Wasted” might be my favorite. I feel like it applies to a good number of people.
In its current configuration you can buy this shirt for $26.65 from MySoti. You can also mess around with the blank it’s printed on and the color of the shirt (although you should definitely leave it as black). Enjoy, all you booze hounds.
You may know Society 6 from their awesome collaboration with Threadless. They’re much more than that though, and they have a ton of original content that is really great. I was just browsing their shirts and, while I like a whole heap of them, this shirt really stuck out to me. It’s Notorious B.I.G.’s song, Big Poppa, translated into French. With French being the language of love (supposedly), this is hilarious. The concept is brilliant, and this t-shirt rules.
You can buy French Poppa for $18.00 at the Society 6 store. They print on American Apparel and are offering free shipping until Sunday. Check out the rest of their stuff, because it’s awesome. You can also wait for it show up on troundup, because it definitely will.
I thought the “Keep Calm and Carry On” apparel trend was popular before, but lately I think the whole thing has been taken to another level and they have been popping up everywhere. Given that, I love unique plays on the “Keep Calm” theme. Splitreason has just created one of those shirts, called “Keep Calm and Fight Zombies”. Using the splattered blood as text is a nice touch that sets it off from lots of other plays on the Keep Calm theme. Most people just use the same font, so the blood really pops out…and yes, I feel kind of weird writing that. It’s a very cool shirt, which again will fit with the Walking Dead t-shirts list I’m working on.
You can purchase this spiffy zombie t-shirt for $19.95 over at Splitreason. The coupon code “FIREBALL” should get you 10% off for a limited time to make the deal a little sweeter. Also, if you need helping fighting the zombies, you can pick up your Intramural Zombie Hunter shirt from Seibei.
Right after I graduated high school, I did what all hip kids do and traveled around Europe with my friends. Among many other cities, we visited Amsterdam (what teenage kids wouldn’t?). Needless to say, I enjoyed myself immensely while I was there, and this shirt reminds me of that. I also have a friend from the Netherlands and dig cool typographical t-shirts, so it has that going for it too.
You can buy the t-shirt for 28 Euros at the Wildness Now store (much cheaper than other things* available in Amsterdam). Wildness Now has some other cool stuff which you will surely be seeing in the future as well.
*those clogs they love so much, of course. Grow up!
I’ve seen this incredibly corny Star Wars pun before (on Twitter), so I was surprised and happy to see it turn up on a t-shirt. If you can’t read the text, it says “Lookin’ for love in Alderaan places,” which is a reference to Luke being a little weird, and the planet Alderaan from the Star Wars galaxy. As I said, it’s incredibly corny. I like it.
You can buy it for only $10 at Teefury. You only have four more hours to buy the shirt though, and then it’s gone forever. Don’t wait if you want it.
Headline Shirts is back with more goofy quotes attributed to famous figures. These quotes usually seem to be, well, something that the person would never actually say. Such as this one, with Edgar Allen Poe saying “I just wanna dance”. I don’t think the master of the macabre would utter those words too often. That’s what makes it funny (get it?!?). Anyway, I dig it, and I hope Headline Shirts keeps up the theme. I guarantee you will get some double-takes from readers of your tee that are familiar with Mr. Poe.
You can pick up the shirt for $14.00 (for a limited time at this price) at the Headline Shirts store. As always, be sure to read their product description. They write them quite well, and the descriptions are always good for a laugh. Lastly, be sure to check for a Headline Shirts coupon before ordering anything.
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.
