About a week ago, I got an email from Ed about his brand Cloth & Resin. They’re located down under in Australia, and here’s a bit about their influences from Ed himself:
Cloth and Resin is a small independent group creating unique collections of clothing with a focus on quality, comfort and simplicity. Our stoke and influence is the ocean, surfing, art and music which is evident across most of our creations. We’re based out of a sunny beach side studio on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia
This t-shirt, Power to the Peaceful, comes from their latest Southern Summer 2011/12 collection (remember, they’re Aussies so they have weird seasons…no offense). I really enjoy this design–I think the illustration is great, and I agree with the subject matter as well. I’m getting a little rambly ’cause it’s late, but suffice it to say…I dig this shirt.
You can pick it up for $49.00 AUD (~$48 US) at the Cloth & Resin store. They have the design in the grey color that I posted, as well as a much darker charcoal version.
I really enjoy the “Your Argument Is Invalid” meme, and I think Snorg Tees perfectly encapsulated the feeling of that meme into this t-shirt. A goat riding one of those super cool old bicycles (that I’ve told you how much I love)? Sign me up. You’re argument is invalid, bro; because there’s a mother ‘effin goat riding a bike on my t-shirt. It’s the perfect way to show a person with weak arguments just how much disdain you have for them (just kidding, kind of). More importantly, it’s also just straight up funny. I dig it.
You can pick up this t-shirt and tell people how much their arguments suck by checking out the Snorg Tees store. Remember to always check for a coupon before ordering, so you can hopefully save some money. You better not argue with me about how cool this t-shirt is…
H’ya folks, I’m stopping in to let you guys know about two awesome sales going on at two separate brands that I really enjoy: Glennz Tees and 604 Republic. Let’s start with Glennz, where all his t-shirts are on sale for only $15.00 (25% off).
The sale at Glennz runs until Sunday November 20th and makes all tees only $15. Go check it out and save some moolah.
The next sale is at 604 Republic, who creates some of the best and wittiest “nerdy” t-shirts around. I dig their designs–they’re super clever. Also until Sunday November 20th, all t-shirts at 604 Republic are buy 2 get 1 free. With their great collection, you can certainly find at least three t-shirts you want and save a ton of money. Additionally, you can use my exclusive 604 Republic coupon code to save another 15% on top of the buy 2 get 1 free sale, making this deal sweet like candy.
Enjoy the holiday savings, and there will certainly be more to come as we hit Black Friday and get closer to Christmas. I’ll try to keep you up-to-date on all the upcoming sales.
Are you ready for a super crazy illustration (well, you probably already saw it, but you get the point)? Here goes…
This shirt comes from Jamie, the man behind Twantard T-Shirts, and is titled “The All Star Monster”. The design is just blowin’ my mind. I don’t know what to think. I dig it though. It’s got an odd allure that I can’t look away from. Maybe it’s his sweet kicks? Who knows? This monster has some goddamn charisma.
You can grab this design, the first of its kind, from Twantard T-Shirt’s store for 12.99 Pounds. Wear it and get some crazy looks from passerby.
First, i want to remind you guys about my exclusive 30% off deal with Threadless. Until tomorrow (November 14th) at 10 am CT you can get a massive 30% off any order of $25 or more. You get an extra 10% off over the second best deal with troundup’s exclusive offer. I’m pretty happy about that, and I hope you’ll take advantage of the offer over the next 16 or so hours. To get the 30% off, just click this link, or visit the post I linked to above for more specific directions.
Next, I want to also feature one of Threadless’ new releases, “Real Vampires”. I don’t entirely love the execution of the design (I think they could have done it better), but I love the fact that it mocks Twilight (sorry Twilight fans! It’s not personal), and I still find the design pretty funny. It also very much preaches the truth–real vampires do not sparkle, they sleep during the day and do cool stuff at night. As I said, I think they could have designed the shirt more creatively, but I still like it.
To sum up–get 30% off at Threadless until tomorrow morning, and show your love for true vampires.
I just got an email from Jaime about his company, Pistache Clothing, which he co-owns with his brother. I checked out their tees and this one is definitely my favorite. I’m usually not a fan of brand labels on t-shirts, but this one doesn’t bother me too much as it fits with the shirt’s design style. I also think the robot looks pretty dang cool. It reminds me a little bit of Wall-E. I dig it. They’ve got the design in a bunch of different colors (including some for men), but this is definitely my favorite version.
You can grab it for 24.99 Pounds over at Pistache Clothing. They’ve got a bunch of designs worth checking out. I especially recommend you browse over their hats–I found some of them pretty cool looking.
From now until November 14th (and maybe even longer), you can get a massive 30% off all orders of $25+ at Threadless. Yes, thirty percent! What’s more, this deal is exclusive to troundup. The standard deal they’re offering right now is only 20% off orders $20+, while the deal I got is, once again, 30% off orders $25+. I’m super happy that I got something exclusive to save you the most money possible at Threadless, and I hope you take advantage of this offer. Once again, the deal is tied to my affiliate link (for serious, not just trying to get clicks). The only way to get the 30% off is by going through my link. Here are some instructions:
1. Click on this link to go to Threadless via my affiliate link. You can also click on the image above.
2. Shop around like usual, and add at least $25 to your cart.
3. Go to checkout, and the 30% off should be automatically applied.
4. Checkout by at least 10 am on November 14th to get the deal.
So to sum up, you can get 30% off orders of $25+ at Threadless until 10 am on November 14th (Monday). To get the discount, you just have to click on my affiliate link to go to Threadless (step 1 above), and then shop and checkout as usual. If this deal goes well, Megan said that it could be extended. Happy Threadless shopping, and happy savings!
I just got an email from Vangelis (awesome name!) about a new brand called Be Positive. Though the brand name makes it pretty obvious, their t-shirts are all about, well, being positive. I checked out the store and the first tee I saw ended up being my favorite. It shows the famously emotionless Mona Lisa with a smiley emoticon super-imposed over her face. It’s a pretty goofy concept, and it’s good to see Mona finally smiling more openly. I dig it.
You can purchase this design from Be Positive for $21.90. They use Spreadshirt for their printing and fulfillment so you can do a little customization if you so desire.
I was gone for the weekend and I have a test tomorrow, so I haven’t had much time to post (lame, I know). With that being said, I did want to post a brief mention for a pretty sweet tee I saw over on Rumplo. It’s called Creature from the Black Lagoon (maybe you’ve heard of it?) and comes from 410 BC as part of their limited stock reprint collection. I find the juxtaposition of the creature with the library and glasses pretty hilarious, and the titles of the books (on the shelf) add even more humor. It’s a quirky tee, but that’s why I like it.
You can grab this design for the fairly hefty price of $35.00 at 410 BC. This batch is printed in a small run of only 50 t-shirts, so it will probably go fairly fast. It’s a perfect t-shirt to wear while you’re lounging around the house during winter (unless you don’t get winters, and then you’re gonna have to find another use for it).
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!
