So I guess I failed at that whole daily posting thing, but I figure this is still better than the previous 2+ weeks of silence. I’ll slowly get back into it (I think). Also, if you emailed me and I never responded, I apologize, I have tons of email and it’s hard to sort through all of it.
Enough with the housekeeping’ish stuff, lets get on to today’s shirt. I’m not gonna lie, this shirt is pretty BA. Star Wars, and especially Chewy, kick some major ass, and by having just the huge, simple print on the front, this shirt really captures that. They also have other Star Wars characters, but Chewy is by far the best.
Pick it up for $25 at Chop Shop.
I couldn’t get good product pictures because of flash, so you’ll have to check them out on the site.
It’s been a long time since the last post (2 weeks?), I’ll try to fix that. The goal is to get back to daily updates. We’ll start off the trend with Get Off from Ames Bros. Things I like about the design? First, I like how the barrel of the gun is pointing straight towards the viewer. Second, I like how the ink on the cowboy is faded.
Grab it for $30 at Anonymous Venice.
Threadless is having a huge summer sale. Tons of new shirts at awesome prices ($10). Definitely check it out. They’ve even reprinted some of my favorites. I’m definitely picking up Funkalicious (I already own it, but now I have the chance to get it on American Apparel). Check it out!
I just got an email from John Paul at Fuzzy Ink letting me know about the launch of their company. Fuzzy Ink, like another company that I will be doing a physical review of soon (thought I’d throw in some suspense by leaving it unnamed) bases all their designs on Mustaches. With sayings like, “I got 99 staches and a beard ain’t one”, you can’t go wrong.
Check it out at Fuzzy Ink.
Excellent pun based on Soulja Boy, a quick google will tell you what you need to know. I might wear this for the next time I encounter a large group of people with no dancing ability trying to pull of the Soulja boy dance (this happens about three times a week, sometimes more when school is out).
Pick it up for $12.95 at RandomShirts.
Shikisai shirts are awesome. They “explore the alternative possibilities of t-shirt design, through the use of black print on white surface”. This is essentially a fancy way of saying they make really cool shirts. Check it out for yourself:
A bath plug with an actual chain hanging down the front.
Venetian blinds with an actual cord (that when pulled makes the blinds go up).
I’m not sure if I would actually wear these, as wearing a chain on my chest all day might get uncomfortable, but it’s still an incredibly awesome concept.
Heard about these from tcritic.
Busted Tees is pretty good at keeping up with current events. This gem is a perfect example. If you haven’t seen the video, check it out below (there is graphic language, so NSFW if that’s a problem). Commemorate Bill O’Reilly’s rage for all time.
As usual, you can save with a Busted Tees coupon.
Glenn is still pumping out excellent designs. It’s easy to see why he’s been printed so much on Threadless. This one is probably my second favorite shirt from him (as of today, I’m sure that’s likely to change as things go on).
Also, Glenn has just released two new designs, Endangered Species and Organized Food Fight.
Check them out at Glennz.
While not technically t-shirts, since it’s related to Threadless, I’m going to bring this up anyway. As of today, Threadless has started selling limited edition (runs of 250) prints of popular designs. They’ll be releasing 3 every week along with the usual batch of shirts. While none of them pique my interest this week, I think it’s a great idea, and I’m looking forward to some of my favorite designs getting made into prints. Now, since this is a t-shirt blog, here are some shirts from this week that I like.
No, you can’t come… You are a mere pawn – Threadless

Sweet new design from Paperball on Design by Humans. The detail on the print is excellent (be sure to check the up close pictures) and I like the light blue (bleu) shirt for it. I wish they would start printing on their Fabric edition shirts though. I got my order and they’re incredibly comfortable. One thing I noticed however, is that the medium was too big for me – i had to move down to a small.
Pick this one up for $19 from Design by Humans.
