I believe this is more or less from a Lil Wayne song, although feel free to correct me, because I’m not 100% on my Lil Wayne quotes. That being said, irregardless of its background, I think it’s a pretty sweet shirt. The focus is obviously on the text, which is a winner in my opinion, although the rest of the design complements it well. I don’t really think you need to know where this shirt comes from to enjoy, which is a definite positive.
Also, Local Celebrity shirts are really soft (another positive). It’ll run you $22 if you join the A-list (which is free and simple, so you might as well). Check back to see if there’s ever a working Local Celebrity coupon (preview of a new troundup feature too!).
Pretty sick shirt from Handsome Clothing, who I found out about on Twitter, which I’m really growing to like (yay for commas!). I’m diggin the shades though, and the general style of the shirt in general. You can check this one out, and the rest of Handsome Clothing’s lookbook at their site.
Also, sorry for the slow posting lately–I’ll try to work on it.
Damn, this design is pretty cool. It reminds me somewhat of Imaginary Foundation’s style, although not completely like that. I just dig it, and it will be in my closet soon. Grab it at Threadless.
PS. How about this unicorn shirt (another design Mathiole had a hand in)? I guarantee it gets you some comments if you wear it.
No doubt this design is simple, as with many of Violent Elegance’s designs, but I think the simplicity is what makes it cool. There’s something attractive to me about just wearing a giant apple on my chest. If you haven’t had a chance yet, check these, and Violent Elegance’s many other awesome shirts out at their store. It’ll run you 29 Euros, or $38.54.
Sorry for the lack of product shots, but I couldn’t figure out how to grab the picture of an actual person wearing the shirt–but you can see that at the site.
Today’s Teextile shirt gave me a chuckle, and is one of the better/more creative Star Wars shirts I’ve seen. I just like the picture of a usually obedient, order-following Stormtrooper rocking out on his guitar.
This one will run you $12 for today only, and then $15 for the rest of the week. You can also get free shipping by using any of these links, or the code troundup. I also think I have a chance at placing in the contest they have running, which means anyone who buys through these links could win a free shirt (and I might win a MacBook! If I’m really lucky).
I got to read all about the duel between Burr and Hamilton in the book, The Founding Brothers, but if you haven’t had the same luck as me (/sarcasm), here’s a little blurb from Wikipedia:
The Burr-Hamilton duel was a duel between two prominent American politicians, the former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton and sitting Vice President Aaron Burr, on July 11, 1804. At the Heights of Weehawken in New Jersey Burr shot and mortally wounded Hamilton. Hamilton was carried to the home of William Bayard on the Manhattan shore, where he died at 2 p.m. the next day.
I feel like this is somewhat of a a detour from Busted Tee’s usual style. That’s definitely not a bad thing–I just don’t usually see them relating to obscure historical events, or at least events that alot of people don’t know about. Either way, if you get the reference, I think it’s pretty damn funny. I also think Busted Tee’s product description is pretty priceless: “Before you feel bad for Alexander Hamilton, keep in mind he was Secretary of the Treasury.”
Annual Apparel, who are getting their long overdue review from me, make shirts that commemorate all the events from a certain year, in this case, 2008. Highlights of the events featured include the election, the mortgage crisis, the Superbowl, the Olympics, Heath Ledger and Batman, and many, many more. As you can see from that, the detail in the shirt is insane. I wish I had a camera that could do the design justice, but all my shots turned out somewhat blurry. You can find some more detailed shots at their site though.
Pick this up on the super soft Alternative Apparel blanks and own a piece of history. While right now they only have a shirt for 2008, they do have ideas for more shirts in the pipeline. You can even vote on which year you want done next.
I’m a big fan of Radiohead, especially after seeing them at Bonnaroo a couple years ago, which made me already inclined to post about this. I also love the style on this shirt, which solidified that inclination. I might be picking this one up–we’ll see.
It’s for sale for $9 for today only at Teefury.
