I like to imagine Shakespeare as the cocky bastard portrayed in this shirt. You can’t help but laugh at some flowery language using, cocky dude wearing that collar and rocking that hair. I also like that Headline Shirts mildly compare Shakespeare to Snoop Dogg in their usual hilarious product description, which I will now quote because it deserves everyone’s literary attention:
William Shakespeare’s Lost Sonnet
O! how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour, which doth in it live.
The canker blooms have full as deep a dye…
Hang on, cut the music for a second. Hi, reader, it’s Will Shakespeare here. You know, I don’t meant to come off as cocky, but this shit basically writes itself. I honestly don’t know what the big deal is. Do you know that I invented almost 2,000 words on my own? So I’m literally just making up words as I go. You know who else made up words on the fly? Snoop Dogg. You think history will remember him as a literary genius?
Yup, I make up a bunch of schmancy words for linguists to guffaw over, toss in a few “haths” and “doths” for the drama majors, and — BAM! — instant classic every time. Seriously, there have been entire college courses taught about stuff I basically wrote on the crapper. Tellin’ you, this shit writes itself.
I dig it. You can pick it up on sale right now for $15.00 at Headline Shirts. It’s down from the usual price of $19.00 because it’s their newest release, and it’s printed on a 100% cotton 30/1 blank.
I know I just posted about Busted Tees bundle sale, but this one is way better. All shirts are $12.99, and there’s no need to buy any minimum amount. You get the discount for each and every shirt. It’s a pretty sweet deal. You can use one of our Busted Tees coupons to bring the price down another 10%, making them only $11.69 a shirt. Don’t dilly dally though, because the sale expires Friday at noon (12:00 pm est).
Busted Tees have also just completely revamped their website design. I dig the new design a lot–it’s clean and simple, just like website design should be. Go check it out, and buy some tees at the sale while you’re at it.
Eleven NBA Championships don’t lie–Phil Jackson has got to be the greatest coach ever. More importantly though, he seems like a legitimately cool person. Part of his personality that I like is his interest in Eastern philosophy, which has earned him the nickname Zen Master (hence the name of the shirt).
I also dig the design (well…picture), in addition to the subject content. I like how dark everything is, and I think Phil looks quite cool in this shot from his playing days at the Knicks.
Zen Master comes from Frank and Jan’s newest set of designs and can be yours for the low price of just $24.00 (I swear I’m not an infomercial writer). Buy this shirt, and support the Lakers next year as they steamroll the Heat, among others.
More sale news…this time from Busted Tees. They’re running a deal where you can pick any 3 shirts, make a bundle of them, and get them for a total of $45. This knocks shirts down to $15 each from the usual $20 each. It’s not a huge sale, but if you’ve been sitting on some t-shirt purchases it’s a reason to act. We’ve (the royal one) also got a working coupon code for Busted Tees that will save you an extra 10%, making it only $13.50 per shirt. Go check the sale out.
Until 11:59 pm on Sunday the 26th, all shirts at Design by Humans are on sale for $12. This is one of the better sales they offer, so if you want some of their shirts you should jump on them.
I’m also still offering my deal where I’ll give you 28% off your entire order (making shirts only $8.64 each).
Also, I just bought this DBH shirt below (which allowed me to update the coupon page). I dig it a lot. It’s goofy and awesome.
Hunter S. Thompson is an unequivocal badass. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas straight through in one sitting because of this fact. If you want a story of drug filled fun and mayhem I recommend you do the same.
I dig this shirt from LTD Tee because it’s simple, but still manages to capture Mr. Thompson. The hair, the glasses, the cigarette, it’s all him. Cloxboy (the artist) did a great job on this one.
You can pick it up for $26.99 at LTD Tee. With that $26.99, you get, in addition to the shirt, an 8×10 art print, a certificate of authenticity, some stickers, and a custom box. Pretty cool.
You can also use the coupon code “troundup” for 20% off your order, bringing it down to $21.59. A dedicated coupon page for LTD Tee will be coming soon.
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.
