I just got an email about a mini-documentary on Threadless’ incredible growth as purveyors of t-shirts. In the documentary they interview Jake Nickel (founder of Threadless), as well as other Threadless employees, designers, and general enthusiasts. I recommend you give it a watch.
You can find the original post on the documentary over at Motherboard.
Go Ape Shirts have just released their newest shirt, designed by the well known artist Olly Moss. I can’t really think of a word or a phrase that could accurately encapsulate everything about this shirt. So…just take it at face value–it’s Robocop…crossing the alps…on a unicorn, and I dig it.
You can pick it up for $20.00 at Go Ape Shirts. It’s printed on American Apparel.
Go Ape Shirts have also reprinted Hip Hop Hibernation, which remains one of my favorite shirt designs. It’s in the original moss color, as well as an all new silver edition.
I really dig this design from Sharpshirter. I’m sure there’s many the cameraman who would prefer a situation such as this one (although that might be a somewhat shortsighted view given the larger implications of not having a head).
The idea is cool, and the design came off quite well, so bravo to Sharpshirter.
You can pick it up for $22.00 at their store. They also print their designs on American Apparel blanks.
The gnome on this shirt looks super goofy, he’s got a killer beard going on, and I love the color (mint) of the blank. He’s also apparently into some shady shit based on the bullet blowin’ a whole in his hat. These are all quality characteristics of a shirt, and make me like this shirt.
You can pick this one up for the freshly lowered price of $14.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (the best makers of the mint color).
Palmercash, purveyors of some pretty nifty and vintage’y shirts, are having a sweet back to school sale which will give you 15% off your entire order of any shirt on the site. Use the code SKOOLSUCKS to get the discount, and check back at our Palmercash coupon page to get the latest and greatest Palmercash coupons.
You won’t regret doing it, and additionally, all the cool kids are doing it.
This shirt is not only a very funny play on words, but it’s also visually awesome because Mr. T is kind of a bonified badass.
I love how subtle his face is–most Mr. T shirts just put his face on a yellow shirt. This one is better. The shading effect (if thats the right term) that Atslopes have used just looks great, and Mr. T is sporting a great facial expression.
So yeah, I like it. You can pick it up on sale for $20 at Atslopes. It’s printed on American Apparel.
I just got an email from Melissa of Unleash Studio about their new animal series of shirts. The shirts all feature animals with a somewhat “human” twist–fashionista boots in the case of my favorite design here.
The designs are all unique and creative and have some pretty sweet c0l0r choices (this shirt for example). A portion of the profits will also be donated to help animals lead better lives, which is always cool.
You can pick these bad boys up for $24.00 at Unleash Studio. They’re printed on American Apparel.
I’ve unfortunately not had Internet for the better part of the past week, leaving me unable to post even though I actually had time to do posting. But…I’m moved into my new apartment in Philadelphia, have working Internet, and am ready to get going. So let’s go…
These offerings come from Insound. They’ve made 10 shirts (and 10 posters) for 10 bands that had a significant impact on music in 2010. I love music (look how unique I am!), so I’m pretty embracing of such motivation. The shirts come from Beach House, Neon Indian, Liars, Titus Andronicus, Broken Social Scene, Girls, Mountain Goats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Owen Pallet.
All the designs incredibly well done, and Sonnenzimmer’s (the artist/s) style is pretty dang good. I’ve posted four of the designs from some of my favorite bands on the list, but you should check all 10 of them out. They’ll run you $22.00 over at Insound and they’re printed on American Apparel. The posters are also awesome. Check them too.
If you regularly read my blog (which is awesome!), you know I love Arrested Development, and the many shirts that deal with Arrest Development. I want to do a huge list of all the great AD shirts, but until then, here’s two more awesome ones to fill the void.
First, we have Gene Parmesan: Private Eye, from Powerup Apparel (who made that awesome Chareth Cutestory shirt I linked to above). Gene Parmesan is perhaps the greatest private eye ever, and you can support his business with this shirt. It’s funny. Pick it up for $22 at Powerup Apparel.
The next one is from Busted Tees, an omnipresent player in the funny TV/movie shirt genre. It features the upcoming corporation of Gobias Industries, a partnership between Gob, the magician, and Tobias, the world’s first analrapist. I love the episode this shirt is based on, and I love this shirt too. You can pick it up for $20 at Busted Tees. We’ve also got Busted Tees coupons for you to save some of your precious money.
If anyone knows of more quality Arrested Development shirts, let me know so I can feature them in that big post I’m writing. Danke!
I’m a big fan of pigeons, especially those ballsy ones that aren’t afraid to stare you down in the middle of the street. Pigeons take on that aggressive air so common with city dwellers, and that is awesome.
Consequently, I dig this shirt from Random Objects. The pigeon staring out from his origami counterpart is quite piercing…in a pigeony kind of way.
You can pick this up for $20.00 at Random Objects. It’s printed on American Apparel 2001 tees, a quality choice.
