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.
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!
