As a guy with a closet brimming full of t-shirts that I love the design of (but rarely ever wear); this is a godsend. Umbra is now selling a glass t-shirt display frame (for the past four months as well–I’m just slow to the punch). The frame is the “Pratt 2012 winner of the Umbra Designer Competition,” and it’s pretty dang slick. The geometry of the frame itself is perfect–I love the way it looks. It also should fit pretty much any t-shirt design, barring one of those full t-shirt all-over prints.
Unfortunately, they’re a little pricey at $40.00, so I won’t be framing my whole collection anytime soon. But, in the right design scheme, they could make a really cool wall-feature. You can get the frame in both black and white. Thanks, Umbra, for solving a problem I’ve always wanted solved.
P.S. Umbra has a nice, short video if you’re wondering how one would actually go about putting a t-shirt in the frame.
The artist behind this shirt, biotwist, fully recognizes that this shirt is a bad pun. A bad pun doesn’t equal a bad t-shirt–which is why I chuckled at this design so much. Sure, it makes no sense–but it’s still a panda dressed as Peter Pan.
I dig this new Predator inspired release from Jack Teague at Boy Parker. The style of the illustration is great, and the Game Over text makes me chuckle a bit. Also, it looks like the Predator is bowling with the skull, which I like (though I’m not sure if that’s intended).
Once again, 604 Republic pulls off a masterful combination of two pieces of pop culture. This time it’s “Drive” (OMG Ryan Gosling!) and Back to the Future.
This is not a t-shirt, per se. But, it’s pretty funny and accurate (well…as accurate as humorous stereotypes can be), so I wanted to share. It’s about 10 months old, so I guess I’m behind the times. I just saw it on the TShirt Reddit though. I’ve posted a portion below–you can check out the full T-Shirt Culture Index right here.
Yeah Dude is one of several new releases from David Murray at Seibei. There are a few designs I really like, but I would say this one is probably my favorite. The absurdity is pretty fun.
You can preorder Yeah Dude by going here. You’ll also be able to check out the rest of the new releases at that link.
Abe Lincoln is a pretty busy guy in the t-shirt world. He’s been known to enjoy some tattoos, but right now he’s apparently into fighting dinosaurs in this newly released design from Alex Solis. It’s pretty goofy, but I like it.
It took me a little while to “get” this t-shirt, but when I did, I really liked the design. For those with similar difficulties, look at Princess Leia, who relies solely on her infamous hair to “hear no dark side” (much like a pair of ear muffs). I think it’s pretty funny–hopefully you do as well.
You can only buy this shirt for the next 12 hours (Unamee is one of those rapid speed t-shirt design competitions). With that being said, the design only costs $10.00, so it’s not like it’s a huge investment. Go ahead and buy it at their store.
Print Liberation just released a new type tee with an interesting take on the word “Shirt”. Like most of their designs, it’s pretty simple. But, I usually like what they come up with, and this is no exception. I also like that they’re just a couple miles down the street from me in Philadelphia–gives me the feel goods to post about them.
You can buy the new design for $24.00 at Print Liberation’s store. As is pretty standard with Print Liberation, the design is printed on an American Apparel tri-blend t-shirt.
Conventions is a very nice tee from the designer Yonil. It also happens to be on sale (along with all of Yonil’s other designs). I love the mix of geometric patterns–makes for a very interesting aesthetic.
You can buy the shirt for $21.00 at Yonil’s store. Like I mentioned, all the other t-shirts are on sale as well, ranging from $13.00 to $21.00.
