No time to write but this is real cool! Check it out at Shirt Fight. It’s printed on American Apparel.
Surprise! Another killer shirt from Imaginary Foundation. Spacy Einstein on a black shirt just looks awesome. Real awesome.
At the bottom it reads “Imagination is more important than science”, a quote from our good friend Albert (surprise again!). I would have to say that I agree.
Check it out over at Imaginary Foundation. It’ll run you $30.
I don’t usually post press releases, but I thought this one was somewhat interesting. I have mixed feelings. On one side, I recognize American Apparel’s right to not have people sell unembellished clothing articles at wholesale prices. However, my more self-centered side, which has benefited from wholesale American Apparel gear in the past, laments that he can no longer find stuff for cheap, because American Apparel’s prices can be somewhat high. Oh well, read about it below. What are your thoughts on the matter? Shoot me a comment (if you care).
American Apparel Sues Violators of Intellectual Property Rights, Wholesale Policy,
LOS ANGELES — American Apparel (Amex: APP), the vertically integrated clothing manufacturer based in downtown Los Angeles, has recently filed lawsuits against resellers who have violated the company’s intellectual property rights and wholesale policy by selling unembellished blank American Apparel garments. The company plans to file further suits against other noncompliant individuals and companies as well.
Since opening its first retail stores in 2003, American Apparel has privately intervened in situations where wholesale customers are reselling its products on the open market. These resellers often infringe upon American Apparel’s intellectual property rights by using copyrighted photographs and artwork to sell its products in violation of the company’s terms and conditions, which clearly prohibit the resale of blank American Apparel products.
“What some customers choose to ignore is that intellectual property is just that: property. The law prohibits this type of theft, regardless of intention, knowledge or profit,” said Joyce Crucillo, chief litigation counsel for American Apparel.
American Apparel is now taking aggressive steps to protect its intellectual property, brand and business by enforcing its resale policy, which allows buyers to resell garments only after altering or screenprinting. On January 14, 2010, the company initiated a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against a former online retailer of American Apparel product, NYCBlanks.com, for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, unfair competition and false advertising, whereby it sought in excess of $1,000,000 in damages as well as injunctive relief. The case recently settled, with NYCBlanks.com admitting liability and agreeing to cease the resale of American Apparel product and pay a sizeable amount to resolve the issue.
Aww, look at the cute monster. I really like this one from Fair and Bare, who I had never heard about until I stumbled upon them today. I feel like the monster–I really like nature. People should stop killing it. That’d be cool.
You can pick this one up for 16 pounds over at Fair and Bare.
Oh, the joy that is Spring Cleaning sales. There are bound to be a few more popping up soon, so the cheap t-shirt love will definitely be in the air. Until then though, feast your eyes (and wallets) on Snorg Tees’ Spring Cleaning Sale, where you can get 20% off all of their shirts.
‘Das cool! Go check it out at Snorg Tees. Consume, my friends!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about Go Ape Shirts, partly because they’ve been quiet as well. However, Josh’s new release of a shirt by Olly Moss, in Momento Mori, prompted me to go back and take another look.
I can’t believe I’ve never posted about this shirt before. The dude just looks awesome. Pure, pure, awesome. I would be proud to wear this shirt.
Check it out over at Go Ape Shirts. It’s printed all up on an American Apparel tee.
Feast your eyes on the newest releases from Fullbleed. As usual, they kick major ass. Rob’s got his game on lock. Check ’em out at the Fullbleed store, and expect reviews of the individual shirts soon.
PS. The recent lack of posting has been due to Spring Break and not having a computer most of the time. I was in Austin for SXSW and saw oodles and oodles of amazing bands. It was a blast.
I just watched Batman Begins today (which technically doesn’t have the Joker, but who cares), so when Threadless released this shirt I felt an urge to post it. It’s pretty damn creepy, but in a good way.
In other news, spring break starts tomorrow. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!
