I just discovered the awesome t-shirt resource that is TopatoCo. They act as the merchant for numerous comic strips, and sell some kick ass funny tees. This one comes from Kate Beaton, which from just a quick glance, seems to be a great strip. I love the paint style, and it’s true – reading is crazy.
Pick it up for $18.00 on American Apparel.
Bonnie from Anonymous Venice was kind enough to send me their Surfing Samurai shirt to review. I didn’t know what shirt I’d be getting when she offered to send me on, so I had no idea what to expect when I opened the package. I was pleasantly surprised. The surfing samurai is a pretty sweet (and unique) design.
Also, the shirt it’s printed on is awesome. It’s got fraying on the sleeves and the neck, which I’m assuming is to give it a vintage/worn look. It’s also incredibly soft and comfortable. It fits tight, not like a box as goes with many shirts, which I think is a good thing, and is just overall awesomely comfortable.
You can grab this shirt for $40.00 from Anonymous Venice. Bonnie was also kind enough to create a coupon code for all you readers. The code is “TROUNDUP” and will get you 15% off your entire order.
A new (to me) release from one of my favorite brands, Black Sea Apparel. Normally I wouldn’t be a huge fan of bunnies on a shirt, but this design just…works. Maybe it’s the pretty colors (I know you all come here for my in-depth analysis). It’ll run you $21 over at Black Sea Apparel.
Tired of wearing the same old boring shirt to parties? Vintage Vantage has you covered. Pick up these three, and then for at least your next 3 parties you’ll be the most original guy in town. They’ll run you $17.50 each. Clicky the picture to go and buy it – or use a Vintage Vantage coupon to save 21%.
Welcome to the Future has two great designs over at their Big Cartel store. I wish they would put up some actual product pictures though so we could see how the designs looked in real life. Still, both designs gave me a chuckle. Check ‘em out at the WTTF store. The designs are really cheap – only $10 printed on American Apparel.
Dear T-Shirt Project, this shirt is awesome. Thank you for making it.
If you can’t see, the words read “If the pen is mightier than the sword…then words on a shirt are killer!”.
I just wish they would print it on more shirts/sizes. Right now stock is very, very limited and I think you can only get it on a polo. You can check out the various sizes/colors at their Etsy shop.
Gino from Color Overload just emailed me about his new ebook, Fuel for Design. From the man himself, “Fuel for Design is a complete guide on how to start a clothing line and is packed full of the latest t-shirt business and marketing tips.”
I usually get a couple emails a month asking me for tips on selling shirts, etc. Unfortunately, I don’t really have any experience myself, so I can never answer that question. Now I can just point this question to Gino’s book. I’m sure he knows what he’s talking about, given that he’s behind an awesome set of shirts over at Color Overload.
So, if you’re looking to learn how to start a clothing line, don’t email me, just read about it from the man himself.
I’m a definite fan of this Obama victory celebration shirt. In my opinion, it’s an awesome design whether you supported Barack or not. I’ll let Josh describe it in his own words from the email:
The shirt is at Barack the Vote and it’s the only thing we’re doing on the site — just one shirt. It’s simple, but memorable, recasting the iconic Barack Obama “O” logo into the popular Internet acronym “OMG” The shirt has a double meaning. On one hand, it captures the celebration and jubilation millions of people felt across the world when Obama was declared the winner on Tuesday night. And on the other hand, it alludes to the youthful energy that the Obama campaign created via its groundbreaking use of the Internet as an organizational tool.
I’m lovin’ the eyes on the stereo, as well as the paint splatter. Music is a big part of my life (listening to Vampire Weekend right now), so I can understand the sentiment. As they say, “Plug it in and Turn it up!”.
You can buy this one from Glamour Kills for $24.99. They’ve got a great line in general, check ‘em all out.
Glarkware is holding a “Winter-ish” sale. What does that mean for you? Everything Glarkware has is on sale at varying levels. You can snag some awesome shirts for as low as $5 (or a few at $2), or as high as $15, as well as hoodies for $20. They’ve got some awesome shirts even in their lower sale brackets. I definitely recommend everyone look through their stuff.
