Unless I missed it, this shirt is only available in women’s sizes, which is a shame because I really like it (it says they have it in guys’ sizes but I either missed them completely or they’re not on the site). Not only does the Mona Lisa look really cool, but I also enjoy fiftyseventhirtythree’s description behind the design, which I will quote instead of attempting to paraphrase:
In a post modern society the level of information we absorb can be overwhelming. Synapses get crossed, memories get linked and we cross pollinate our iconography. Elements of visual greatness, that span centuries come together. We write our own histories.
Check it out at fiftyseventhirtythree–it’s also available in different colors and printed on really comfortable shirts (Alternative Apparel, I believe)!
I love when these happen. Clean and simple, all shirts are $14.00 at Busted Tees until 12:01 PM est. tomorrow (Wednesday). They’ve got their gems, as I’m sure many of you know, so it’s definitely worth heading over to and checking out. Go shop the sale! Use a coupon too, I think they’ll let you.
I really like Pirate Bath Clothing’s style–the designs are clean and simple but still attractive and cool. I really, really like them. I’ve noticed more and more big all-over prints, so this is a refreshing addition. It looks like every shirt comes with the design on front and either blue or black stripes on the back.
Jodi, the person behind Pirate Bath, has been hand painting all the shirts herself in the garage. But…she wants to start screen printing, but as some people know that can be kind of expensive at the beginning. So check out her kickstarter page and donate or buy some shirts!
Spotted this on Coty’s blog and laughed right away. I really like the creativity, and as Coty mentioned, if you buy this for any web designer I feel like it has to bring a smile to their face. I might even buy this for myself even though I suck at web design. It’s for sale for $25 at Pop + Shorty on an American Apparel tri-blend tee (really comfortable).
God Damn–this is hot. DBH is offering free shipping on any order size (even one shirt!). Also, that means if you wanna buy shirts through me for 30% off you don’t have to pay shipping no matter what. So a $20 shirt becomes $14, and a $25 shirt becomes $17.50. That’s pretty cheap. Just shoot me an email at crn001 (-at-) gmail.com and I can get you squared away right away. I’ve got tons of DBH dollars to go around.
Lastly, on my Design by Humans related housekeeping, I updated the site with a new coupon code.
Everyone have a great fall–it’s real pretty out, and buy some DBH shirts to look cool and stay warm in.
That certainly is a very big and very cool looking fifth eye. This shirt somewhat creeps me out, but in a good way. I definitely like it. I also just spent like 4 hours doing tedious homework, so that might contribute to creepiness of a huge fifth eye on a two-headed dude. You can check this out at the always awesome Resist Today. Check out their wallets too–they cool.
I knew these shirts would be coming (they’ve actually been out much sooner than this post, but I’m slow on the uptake). I haven’t actually seen the clip, but it’s been described to me many times, and I’ve seen the numerous spin off pictures, so I think I get the gist. Here are two shirts from the outburst, one by Busted Tees and one by Retro Plus Apparel. So here we go:
And just because it’s funny…
“Bird by bird.” “Show don’t tell.” Melvin is a literal interpretation of the streaming conscious. It is an ink drawing on paper that has adapted nicely to the t-shirt medium. Its position on the shirt invites visual curiosity.
I really like the illustration on this one–Melvin looks really cool. His “streaming conscious” is also cool looking, and is an interesting concept for a shirt. I’m really glad they went with a wrap around print for this one, because if it was all on the front of the shirt it would not be nearly as effective. I just wish I could find a little more zoomed in view of what he’s thinking about.
Rhetoric prints on their own unique blanks, which usually means they’re really comfortable (although I’ve yet to try one, so I can’t 100% make that claim–it’s just an educated guess). Check it out!
Also, get free shipping with the coupon code TROUNDUP09.
I think I’ve made a few comments before about foil being awesome, which makes me all the more happy to announce that Design by Humans will be releasing two foil using shirts in the next two days (well, today and tomorrow technically). According to the newsletter it’s been several months since they’ve used foil, but I can’t say I ever remember seeing them use it, so I was pretty psyched by the email. I like both the shirts, but Chaos Theory by Mathiole is my definite favorite. The blue foil just looks totally rad. Check em out!
This post doesn’t serve much purpose other than highlighting three band shirts that I bought and am incredibly psyched to receive. Actually, I guess there is some small purpose, because sometime soon I’ll be digging through the plethora of shirts out there and picking my favorite for each (being Grateful Dead, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan–I wanted to buy some shirts from obscure bands). I usually try to buy shirts only from bands I’ve seen in concert, but that’s not easy with these dudes,although I did see Phil Lesh and Friends at Bonnaroo and almost saw Dylan. I’ve yet to get close to seeing The Beatles though (surprise!). So yeah, here are the three I bought, and expect more detailed posts for all of them soon. Sorry that the pictures are not the greatest quality.
The Beatles (you may have seen this one before).
I also bought a bunch of other shirts recently, including Dr. Dog (who I haven’t seen, but will be seeing in about a month), The Spinto Band, Ra Ra Riot (I have three of their shirts now!), and the Cold War Kids.
P.S. Can you tell I like tie-dye?
P.P.S. I really just wanted to post something regarding music. Be my friend on last.fm!
