Threadless just released the results of their “College! T-shirt Design Challenge” and boy are the t-shirts awesome. I would love to be one of the ten lucky schools that can now buy great mascot themed shirts from Threadless. Seriously Threadless–please make one of these for Temple University. I love the style, and I think you could do something great with our Owl mascot (Hooter!). For now, I will be forced to go without. If you go to UCLA, Alabama, Auburn, UC Berkely, University of Colorado, University of Illinois, LSU, Miami U, University of Iowa, or USC, go to Threadless and buy your school’s awesome shirt. Once again, please do this for Temple! We have tons of students and alumni.

This awesome, awesome shirt, called Uncle Reginald, comes from the brand Chuck U. This character, Reginald, is ridiculously goofy and awesome–especially the mustache. I have no idea what else to write (I’ve already used awesome three times!), so I’m just gonna tell you a bit about Chuck U. This shirt is awesome though…
Chuck U is a freelance illustrator from Minneapolis. Chuck’s done tons of illustrations and has been featured in galleries, magazines, and other things of that ilk. He sells both art prints and t-shirts, and his style is awesome (look at that again…). He has shops at both at Storenvy (7 different t-shirts), and Etsy (seems to be mostly prints). Even if you’re not planning to buy his stuff, check out his designs. You can grab this specific shirt, Uncle Reginald, at his Storenvy shop. You can also buy it as a print at Etsy.
I love this t-shirt from the fairly new brand 20sixfresh. It’s so goofily awesome–all the little details in the design are great. The main guy (the troll?) looks pretty snazzy as well. Lastly, I love that they incorporated the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia quote with the “troll toll”. This is just an overall sweet design–good stuff.
You can grab this design, which I heartily recommend, for $25.o0 at the 20sixfresh store. I’m sure these guys will keep pumping out great designs in the future.
As I mentioned, 20sixfresh is a new brand based out of Billy’s home office in the Pacific Northwest. They currently have four different designs, available in both men’s and women’s sizing.
P.S. Happy New Years everyone! Get crazy, if that’s your thing.
I couldn’t really think of a title for this post just because the t-shirts at ThenWear are so out there (a good thing). All of the t-shirts (in the section I’m linking to) depict popular historical figures as if they were on a musical tour. You’ve got Galileo’s “Don’t tell the pope” Heresy Tour, Attila’s Huns in the Sun Tour, and many other funny tour shirts. I like them very much. I’ve posted a picture of two of my favorites, but you should certainly check ’em all out.
ThenWear is newly launched (on the 5th I believe), so I’m betting they will be adding even more to their collection. Additionally, they do more than just the tour shirt, so you should check out of the rest of their funny, and sometimes ridiculous, “historical” t-shirt line. The shirts will run you ~$25 from what I’m seeing. Now go check out their store. You can get free shipping by using the code “2011StandardFree“.
I’m stopping in on this Friday night to bring you guys an awesome tee called Riding Dirty from Neckbeard Apparel (certainly an interesting brand name). The design reminds me a bit of a someecards design (a good thing), with an old-timey illustration partnered with a funny slogan. I think this tee is super funny, especially because I love those old bicycles (as I’ve mentioned on troundup about ten times now). Anyway…good concept, good execution, great t-shirt. Not much more time to write because I have to go taste test the awesome Tito’s Vodka that I picked up today! Wish me luck.
You can grab this design for $25 CAD (that’s like $5 in US Dollars, right?) at NeckBeard Apparel.
P.S. I do actually know we don’t dominate the CAD anymore. Sad times, though.
Call me a sucker for odd and obnoxious superheroes, but I dig today’s Tee Fury design. In case you can’t read it, the text says, “Here comes…BAREDEVIL. The man without pants”. The illustration is, obviously, appropriately ridiculous. It’s a goofy tee that immediately drew a chuckle from my face, and it’s getting posted up on troundup because of that.
As with all Tee Fury shirts, Baredevil will only be sold for 24 hours. It costs $10, and disappears from production in 23 hours (so don’t wait around).
I really enjoy the “Your Argument Is Invalid” meme, and I think Snorg Tees perfectly encapsulated the feeling of that meme into this t-shirt. A goat riding one of those super cool old bicycles (that I’ve told you how much I love)? Sign me up. You’re argument is invalid, bro; because there’s a mother ‘effin goat riding a bike on my t-shirt. It’s the perfect way to show a person with weak arguments just how much disdain you have for them (just kidding, kind of). More importantly, it’s also just straight up funny. I dig it.
You can pick up this t-shirt and tell people how much their arguments suck by checking out the Snorg Tees store. Remember to always check for a coupon before ordering, so you can hopefully save some money. You better not argue with me about how cool this t-shirt is…
Are you ready for a super crazy illustration (well, you probably already saw it, but you get the point)? Here goes…
This shirt comes from Jamie, the man behind Twantard T-Shirts, and is titled “The All Star Monster”. The design is just blowin’ my mind. I don’t know what to think. I dig it though. It’s got an odd allure that I can’t look away from. Maybe it’s his sweet kicks? Who knows? This monster has some goddamn charisma.
You can grab this design, the first of its kind, from Twantard T-Shirt’s store for 12.99 Pounds. Wear it and get some crazy looks from passerby.
I just got an email from Jaime about his company, Pistache Clothing, which he co-owns with his brother. I checked out their tees and this one is definitely my favorite. I’m usually not a fan of brand labels on t-shirts, but this one doesn’t bother me too much as it fits with the shirt’s design style. I also think the robot looks pretty dang cool. It reminds me a little bit of Wall-E. I dig it. They’ve got the design in a bunch of different colors (including some for men), but this is definitely my favorite version.
You can grab it for 24.99 Pounds over at Pistache Clothing. They’ve got a bunch of designs worth checking out. I especially recommend you browse over their hats–I found some of them pretty cool looking.
I was gone for the weekend and I have a test tomorrow, so I haven’t had much time to post (lame, I know). With that being said, I did want to post a brief mention for a pretty sweet tee I saw over on Rumplo. It’s called Creature from the Black Lagoon (maybe you’ve heard of it?) and comes from 410 BC as part of their limited stock reprint collection. I find the juxtaposition of the creature with the library and glasses pretty hilarious, and the titles of the books (on the shelf) add even more humor. It’s a quirky tee, but that’s why I like it.
You can grab this design for the fairly hefty price of $35.00 at 410 BC. This batch is printed in a small run of only 50 t-shirts, so it will probably go fairly fast. It’s a perfect t-shirt to wear while you’re lounging around the house during winter (unless you don’t get winters, and then you’re gonna have to find another use for it).
