Weekly Threadless Pick: Freedom Call

It’s Monday(ish) so you know what that means, another round of tees from Threadless. If I was to be critical (and let’s be honest, I should be more often) I’d have to say that most of this weeks designs are more sutied to artwork than clothing, Limb by John Mitchell is a good example of this, maybe Threadless should start doing canvas prints to go along with all the clothes? An honourable mention has to go to Home Sweet Home, there’s something about a gun/birdhouse hybrid that really embodies the design spirit of the Threadless community.

I’m sure those of you that have already checked out this weeks Threadless mailout would have bet that the devil-and-angel-on-shoulders design of Advisors would have been this weeks pick, but something about it just doesn’t float my boat, I think it’s the lack of torso’s that makes me ‘meh’ that one. Freedom Call on the other hand really pushes my buttons, I love the colorway (use of pink but not too much), there’s more detail in this tee than I usually expect from Threadless, and it feels like it fits very well on a hoodie. There’s a bit of talk on the Threadless blogs that this is a lot like Flowers in the Attic, but I think that’s largely because it looks a bit emo and has butterflies on it. And no, I have very little clue as to what the design actually means.

    It doesn’t remind me of Flowers in the Attic… but it does kind of bother me that the butterflies in Freedom Call are all clones.
