If you’ve been here before you’ll know we love a simple t-shirt. One that goes all out in it’s simplicity. No frills. Direct. To the point.
The apples at this time of year are amazing. Celebrate that fact, not by eating them (that would be risky*) but by wearing one. Fruit shirts always make us smile. Apple shirts are the best.
* Eating apples poses three main risks. 1 – choking, 2 – skin getting stuck in teeth, 3 – apple being slightly over ripe and causing minor disappointment.
I love a sketchy shirt. I always thought it would be neat to do a line of shirts that was just unedited ball point pen sketches which were blown up to the size of a shirt. The oversized lines just always look nice.
This has a nice dark halloween feel to it – and some of that biro sketch loveliness. Hand-drawn, hand-printed, hand-tagged, 100% cotton T-shirts from Shanghai. This is a band tee – find a link on the shirt page by clicking the image.
We’re keen to see what comes next – these shirts from twin horizon have a pretty unique feel.
I remember as a small person having my mind absolutely BLOWN by seeing the word house written to make the shape of a house, next to the word do written to look like a cat. That’s right, not a dog. A cat. Hilarious. I think I laughed through two birthdays and a Christmas. It’s how I imagine the entire population of France reacted to seeing Ceci n’est pas une pipe for the first time.
Anyway – think of the joy you can bring to young ‘uns around you with this shirt. It’s brilliant. And we don’t often call shirts brilliant.
Ah we can but dream. Dream that Kubrick had resisted the temptation to make that eyes wide shut nonsense, and instead had made the finest turtle based movie ever seen.
Can you imagine it? No. Neither can I. Ours is not to stare into the mind of genius.
This shirt is only available for a few days – as seems to be the way at gimmick tees – so go grab it.
Okay folks – we have a problem – there has been a disturbance in the fabric of the t-shirt industry. There is currently a tie on tshirtfight.com. Get on over there and do some voting. Only four days left. Ties are boring as they delay the new shirts. Don’t let it happen again. It’s not like the Lotto when no one wins and it’s more exciting next week.
Let’s see if we can skew the vote – the skully one on the right is my favourite right now. Go vote for it.
So halloween is a strange time for t-shirts. They either get blood and guts on them as people go all zombie. Or they get sliced to ribbons and cut down to be all sexy. Or they just get ditched in favour of something more “fun”.
Tisk. You only need one t-shirt this helloween. One with a pumpkin head on it. Imagine the fun you could have customising it by taping a couple of candles to your chest and cutting out the eye holes.*
And only $10 in the sale.
* Don’t blame us if you burn your chest / tum / other bits.
Need a sinister but not scary t-shirt? Love the ocean? Dream of amorphous blob creates visiting you in your sleep and stealing your soul? Love a tall ship but afraid you’d get your blocks all in a jumble and tangle your rigging?
Fear not – we have the perfect solution. Well, we don’t, Threadless do. But you get the idea.
So the post the other day on Gangnam Style t-shirts went down pretty well. On the back of it Lee got in touch about his shirt – which he’s trying out on teespring.com. He’s planning a bunch of shirts on this theme – calling it instructapals. I kinda like the idea, so I hope this works out for him and gets printed.
I think it’s a pretty decent looking design – certainly one for the nerds at the Christmas party to remind them how to dance like it was three months ago. Brilliant. He needs 100 of you to click the button before it’ll get printed. So go click the button.
If there’s one surefire way to get your shirt mentioned on this blog it’s to write OMG on it in biro. That’s right – this is an actual OMG Tee.
This is photoshopping of the highest standard. Head swapping has a long and glorious history, and this shirt is a very fine addition to that tradition. We love it.
Sharks. Sharks are great. They eat us. There aren’t many things that still eat us. It has a nice weirdy octonauts kind of friendly scary thing going on. Which we like. Go get!
