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.
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 really enjoy quality typography t-shirts, and from what I’ve seen so far, 8teeSix seems to deliver that. They just recently launched and currently have three designs out. The design I’ve featured is available in two colorways, so they’ve got a total of four shirts for sale. I think it’s a pretty creative type, and I like that it kind of looks like those peel-off Twizzlers (that’s probably not the right term, but whatever. I don’t know anything about art). Cool stuff.
You can grab this design, Life, for 20 Pounds (damn you exchange rate!) from 8teeSix. As usual, I invite you to check out their other designs as well. Enjoy!
As I was slowly (and not very surely) going through my troundup emails, I came across this brand, Roamers Clothing. The line is made up of three partners–from Kansas City, New York City, and Miami respectively. They’ve only got four designs currently, but I can already tell that I’m going to be a fan of them going forward. I chose this one, a parody of the New York Times logo, as my favorite. I like the play on words, and I like commemorating good times. Hence, I like this tee.
You can pick the design up from Roamers Clothing for $25.99. All US customers get free shipping, which makes deal a little sweeter. I recommend you check out their other designs as well, as I enjoyed all of them–especially the James Bond themed shirt.
Eddie just emailed me about his cool new “Where Are You From? CA, NY or Other” t-shirt. Speaking as someone living in Philadelphia, I’m not sure I can fully agree with the sentiment, but I’m guessing this t-shirt would be especially relevant in the film industry. Even if I don’t entirely agree, I still think it’s a cool and clever design worthy of being checked out.
Rather than a traditional store, Eddie is selling is design through Kickstarter, and the first 25 orders are allowed to pay whatever they want. As with all Kickstarter projects, the shirts won’t get printed unless the goal of $1,000 is reach. Of course, if the goal isn’t reached you won’t be charged anything, so there’s no risk. Anyway, check it out and help him out if you like the shirt, ’cause Eddie still has a bit of a ways to go. The shirt is also a limited run–so you won’t be seeing it all over the place. I’m guessing most of the shirts will be concentrated in California and New York.
I’ve posted a few other Big Lebowski t-shirts because I love the movie. I’m now happy to add this one to that list, because it is quite, quite funny. If you’re familiar with the movie, you know that one of the most well-known/repeated phrases is “The Dude Abides“. Therefore, it is quite possible that were The Dude to tweet, he would end many of them with the hashtag #Abiding. That is why this shirt is funny. It’s something that typically only fans of the movie will get, and I think that is one of the characteristics that makes a great movie t-shirt.
If you’re #abiding as well, you can pick up this design for $20CDN (Canadian Dollars? What?!?!??!) from Cowbell Tees. It’s printed on Alstyle 1301 t-shirts.
Welcome to the Rapture everyone (sic)! We still have a little bit of time for Internet browsing before things begin, so I thought I would share this shirt with you. It’s a pretty funny shirt. This shirt comes from Print Liberation, who are the same people who made that awesome I Survived the Bush Administration t-shirt. Well, I think the Rapture is a little more dangerous than the Bush administration (a little…). Thus, this shirt is instantly more hardcore. Also, the fact that God is reaching down like some giant, spiritual claw machine game is hilarious. I think a giant hand reaching down is actually the scientific community’s conclusion of what the Rapture will look like (wait…that doesn’t make sense, does it?). As usual with Print Liberation, the font is also cooool.
If us non-believers haven’t been thrust into our fiery hell by tomorrow, then you should pick up this shirt. Show the world that you survived the Rapture, and that you’re damn proud of it. I Survived Judgment Day is printed on American Apparel and costs $18.00 over at Print Liberation. This is one of my favorite shirts in a long time, and I will definitely be buying it. Since I’m in Philadelphia, I can even go directly to the Print Liberation store and pick it up and tell them how much they rock for making this shirt.
Enjoy your non-hell life while you still have it!
