Sub Urban Riot was kind enough to send me their Tzars and Warlords t-shirt to review. Let’s start at the beginning with shipping. Jason shipped the shirt out the same day he offered me the review, how’s that for quick shipping? While I haven’t bought a shirt off them, I’ll assume they offer the same service to regular customers as well.
I got the package a few days later. It came in a bag with a little catalog book, and some branded matches. I got a little laugh out of the matches, because most people just send stickers, so that’s a nice touch.
Now on to the actual shirt. This shirt is one of the most comfortable tees I own. According to the site, they print on “100% cotton, Sub Urban Riot original rough cut design”. I don’t know where they get it, but it’s just amazingly comfortable. The sizes do run a little small though, so if your regular size is tight on you, you should consider ordering a size up.
Instead of giving my thoughts on the design, I’m just going to quote the product description, which sums it up pretty nicely: “Badass, tough as nails! Need we say more.” I also asked Jason for a little more about the shirts background, and here’s what I got:
Inspiration for Tzars and Warlords. Well it runs in the theme of our Ruin and Ancients designs. I hesitate to say we’re giving homage to tzars and warlords of history, but more of a recognition. There are some fascinating personalities and civilizations that sprouted from that type of rule. To put that into graphic form was exciting to create. There is some commentary in there too.
Overall, I really like both this shirt and Sub Urban Riot as a company. The shirt looks great and is incredibly comfortable, and the company has fast shipping and quick and friendly email responses. They’re also having a sale on some of their shirts right now, so you can pick some up cheap. You can see the shirt in action over at my Flickr feed.
