Much like Coty, when I read the subject on Local Tees email to me and saw their name, I didn’t have high expectations. Preconceptions are made to be broken though (that’s the saying right?), because Local Tees has a bunch of great designs. Local Tees is founded on the concept of high quality tees, printed in limited edition, numbered runs (more on that directly from them at the bottom of the post). It’s a cool idea, especially when the designs are great…which they are. I’ve picked four of my favorites, but you should check them all out.
Definitely expect more posts about these guys in the future.
Local Tees was established in 2010 and was born based on an original idea, with that concept in mind, Local Tees was born and created by Three locals that began with a clear ambition of creating high-end limited edition t-shirts. With a specially chosen, high quality fabric, where the artwork is represented on 50 tees each with an edition number, ensuring no reprints will be forced.
We believe in building an international network by collaborating with artists that represent ground-breaking self made inspiring artwork, to showcase the exceptional talents from all around the world.
Yes, the title is right–the first person to email me will get 50% off at Design by Humans. I have a bunch of DBH Dollars saved up, so I’ll simply buy the order with them and have it shipped to you. There are only 2 conditions:
1. The order total (before the discount) can’t exceed $105 (that gives you up to 7 shirts with DBH’s current sale).
2. You pay for shipping.
So yeah, just shoot me an email and if you’re first you get the discount. Even if you’re not first, I can still offer a 25% discount with no limits on how many people get the offer. Also, remember that we’ve got Design by Humans coupons for your convenience.
Hawt damn–it’s March Mania at Threadless. If you thought March Madness was cool, check this out: All t-shirts at Threadless are only $10 until 10 am CT on March 23rd. That doesn’t give you time to lollygag (sorry, I was late in notifying people!).
Much like Goodie2Sleeves, Palmercash is donating very generously to victims of the Earthquake in Japan. They’ve created a Japan-themed set of shirts and are going to donate 100% of the profits from those shirts to help Japan recover. Again, this is incredibly generous, and if you see something you like, you should buy it. You get something cool and also help people in need.
Here’s a message from Palmercash with a little more information:
PalmerCash has a really deep connection to Japan between customers, stores we sell to, friends, family, and I even lived there for a while. We are hoping to make a big impact with these shirts that can give people a way to donate money, but also show solidarity and support as things hopefully get better over there! We are using the Prefecture and City symbols from the hardest hit areas on the tees so that people can represent a part of Japan that was devastated and also have a nice looking shirt!
This shirt is hilarious. Soccer is my favorite sport, and I love hooligans (as long as they’re not hurting things too much)…so it’s a bi-winning shirt. I love that the hooligan has a cigar in his mouth, even as he’s about to get billy-clubbed. Maybe Americans would like soccer a bit more if it were more like this shirt.
If you wanna celebrate your love of hooligans (and soccer), pick this shirt up for $20.00 from Headline Shirts. We’ve also got Headline Shirts coupons for you to save some money (always cool, right?).
P.S. We’ve got a t-shirt giveaway from Headline Shirts coming up, so that’ll be cool I think.
Yesterday, March 17th, was troundup’s fourth birthday. That’s a long time…I started blogging about t-shirts back in 2007 when I was 16 and now I’m 20. I’ve had troundup for ~20% of my lifespan. That’s kinda cool, eh?
Over troundup’s four years, I’ve written 672 posts, for an average of .46 posts a day. I can do better than that I think, but that’s still a lot of posts (I’d like to think so at least).
According to Wikipedia, here are some other things that happened in 2007 (when troundup started):
- April 14 – Retired chess champion Garry Kasparov is detained in Moscow for participating in a banned march.
- June 1 – A 2,100-year-old melon is discovered by archaeologists in western Japan
- September 14 – The SELENE spacecraft launches. JAXA has called the mission, “the largest lunar mission since the Apollo program.”
- October 24 – In the space of a few hours, Comet Holmes develops a coma and flares up to half a million times its former brightness, becoming visible to the naked eye. Its coma later becomes larger in volume than the Sun, making it the second comet to do so in 2007 after Comet McNaught.
- December 19 – Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, is announced as Time magazine’s 2007 Person of the Year.
Remember when all that happened? It seems like a million years ago (especially the melon…).
Anyway, I’d just like to thank everyone for reading, and I hope you will still be reading when troundup’s fifth birthday rolls around.
This shirt made me laugh right away–it’s just super goofy. I don’t know how Busted Tees think up shirts like this, but I’m glad they do. The two guys fencing are actually a pretty funny image as well, when placed in the context. Are you down to fence? Because I think I’m DTF.
I also like the little slogan on the shirt page which reads, “Why are you all laughing when I say ‘sword thrust?’” It’s innuendo!
P.S. Tomorrow (March 17th) is troundup’s 4th birthday! Hooray! Expect a little post to celebrate. Nothing too special though.
I’ve talked about my love for The Big Lebowski before, and, well…that hasn’t changed. I especially dig this one because of the 8-bit graphics. It’s just awesome–I love the action shot of him bowling (which looks like it came straight from an old video game), and the closeup is pretty cool itself. It’s just a quality design, especially for the Big Lebowski aficionado.
If you’re interested, you can pick this one up for $22 at MySoti. It’s designed by the artist Jude Buffum, who makes many more of these cool 8-bit designs. He’s done designs for other Big Lebowski characters (not the proper nomenclature!), as well as Office Space and a few others. I recommend you check them out too.
If you’ve been following the news, you know how horrific the earthquake in Japan has been. It’s important to try to help those people, and that’s why I was so happy to see this offer from Goodie Two Sleeves. They will be donating 100% of their proceeds (yes, all of their profit) from March to earthquake victims in Japan. This is incredibly generous. They haven’t chosen which charity they will donate to yet, but Gabe tells me it will most likely be the Red Cross.
Go over to Goodie Two Sleeves, pick up some cool shirts, and help earthquake victims. It’s probably the easiest way to donate ever thought up.
My other Charlie Sheen t-shirt post was such a huge attraction that I decided to give the people what they want, and make a list of every Charlie Sheen t-shirt that I can find. I already posted about those awesome Skreened quote-based Charlie Sheen shirts, but now I’m going to do every shirt there is (or that I can find). I’m also going to sprinkle in some more of my favorite quotes from his statements. Remember, live the Sheen Dream! I hope you enjoy:
Are you afflicted with bi-winning just like Charlie? If so, get yourself a prescription with this shirt from Rocks Off.
This one is just a little Sheen portrait, but I really like that they made his face blue. Check it out!
“If they do discover my blood to be tiger blood, I hope that nobody will be shocked!”
Another blue face shirt, this time with the Winning statement below is face. You can buy this one from Barstool Sports.
If you can’t read the text of this one, it says “I’m on a drug…it’s called Charlie Sheen.” I don’t think I could handle the drug called Charlie Sheen. If you think you can, though, buy this one from Donkey Ts.
