Skilla’s new tee steps up to the mic

by Andy on March 20, 2009


It’s been a while since I posted a tee that deserved the tag of logoteesthatdontsuck, and by a while, I mean a colossal 22 days.

The Art of Letting Go at A Better Tomorrow

by Andy on March 20, 2009

Co-Tee TV, tee blogging goes multimedia!

Y’know, I was wondering how long it would be until a tee blogger decided to make a regular video podcast about tees. Good luck with it Coty!


Gettin’ Lit by KosherHam [Reviews]

by Andy on March 19, 2009


Now, if there’s something I don’t have a clue about it’s Jewish culture. My current apartment is filled with Jewish books and judaica (my landlady is from Israel), and I even have a Jewish thing on my keychain for good luck, so you’d have thought I would have taken some of it in subliminally at the very least, but that hasn’t been the case. However, even a mensch like me know that a menorah was used back in ancient times to stop dragons putting curse on your house.*

To me, Jewish-themed stuff tends to be very traditional, at least looking around my living room it seems to be, so I guess that KosherHam’s refreshingly clean and cartoon-y style would be attractive to younger Jews. The tee is my American Apparel, and the print was pretty good, though not perfect as you’ll be able to see from the pictures in the gallery, something which I feel may have been done on purpose.

It might just be me, but it feels as if podcasts have never quite taken off as much as they should. Anyone have any favourites that they think I/everyone will like?

Teenormous are giving away 100 tees

by Andy on March 18, 2009


Teenormous, the other t-shirt search engine are giving away 100 t-shirts in what it is fair to say is a pretty darned large competition.

It;s fair to say that most of the companies involved with the competition don’t sell the kind of tees that I like, but it could be worse… much worse.

It’s as if I’m playing a game where I have to count up over-used t-shirt design elements…

I don’t want to be too harsh, as I was scrolling through my RSS reader I actually quite liked this tee until my scrolling reached that big eye, eye’s just don’t work for me on t-shirts, but I do still like the stuff around it. I guess that skulls and birds get used on tees because they are good elements to work with and people like them, y’know, there’s a reason why things get over-used, but I think that B/D have missed the mark a bit with this one.

Costiness=$19.95 Buy it at Beautiful/Decay



Remember these? They’re back in stock in white or black for $15 a pop… and yes, I know both belts are black and white, but you know what I mean.

Also, they’re going to be giving away a shirt every week to a random person on their mailing list.

Another week, another release of designs from Wrongwroks. I really like this new hoodie, I never like the way that a hoodie looks when people put their hands in the pocket/pockets (I do it all the time though, the should probably call here Chilladelphia… sorry), but a hoodie like this would probably make me a lot more welcoming to it… might look a bit silly when your hands aren’t in there though.

Check out the other in the gallery, the green & black ‘flower dorabob’ hoodies mark Wrongwroks first foray into a ladies line with cut and sew hoodies just for the girls.

laFraise’s 5th anniversary remix line

by Andy on March 18, 2009


laFraise are celebrating their 5th anniversary by getting the artists who created some of their most popular t-shirts to remix their original designs, with the ‘new’ tees being re-released on a 1000 shirt limited run. I can’t remember another company doing this, and I think it’s a pretty cool idea. There’s going to be a new remixed tee released every month in 2009, and the first tee to get updated is ‘The Last Party’ by Cuypi. I think you’ll probably agree that it is an improvement on the original.

Wandering around the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday I noticed that whilst drinking t-shirts aren’t necessarily a genre that particularly excite me, people are always going to wear them, so they might as well be a lot better designed than the crap that was getting beer spilled down them on Market St. and the Ben Franklin Parkway a couple of days ago (if this was a rock gig that would be the hometown shoutout that drives the crowd wild).

I get the feeling, and I completely understand why, that quite are lot of you (women, for example) are going to take exception to this t-shirt. Scantily clad women on t-shirts tend to have that effect. A month and a bit ago I probably would have been burning a bra right along side you, because the streetwear culture is different in the UK, but after being in America for a while, I’m starting to get why this kind of thing could be popular, so I’m not going to give Akomplice a hard time about it.

If you can get past the subject of the print, this is actually a really high quality t-shirt, which usually tends to be the case with AK. I remember the print being nice, I love halftones, the breast pocket is somewhat unusual (it’s the first tee I’ve ever received with a breast pocket), but I think it works, and there’s a tag on the sleeve which gives it a quality finish. I quite like sleeve tags, but if you don’t, it wouldn’t be too tough to cut it off.

Also, in the breast pocket there’s a custom AK condom, something I was unaware of even when I was taking the pictures, and throwing the tees into my room before leaving for the airport… I wonder if my Mom found it when cleaning my room?

No Star introduces La Merde

by Andy on March 16, 2009


When you think of No Star Clothing, your probably think of funny tees, a pretty light label, certainly not a premium brand. I guess that’s why the people behind No Star have launched La Merde (and yes, I know what that means), a new premium hoodie and jacket label. Gone are the funny slogans, and in come some fairly serious sleeved pieces.

Like I said, this is a premium line, and the prices reflect that (the above jacket is $250), but they do look like high quality goods, and I realy like the way that they all have a little eccentric touch to set them out from similar items (like the red stitching on the button hole in the piece above).

Until April 1st, use the coupon code NOSTAR to get 10% off your order.

La Merde



Nothing guarantees a post on a tee blog like Threadless doing a sale, even if it isn’t a site-wide one.



I’m not sure if people outside of Australia are aware, but There’s a large and disturbing racist movement gaining momentum here.

Everything seemed to come to a head with the Cronulla Riots in 2005 where around 5000 people showed up after recieving this text, “Come to Cronulla this weekend to take revenge. This Sunday every Aussie in the Shire get down to North Cronulla to support Leb [Lebanese] and wog [Italian] bashing day”.

In a small effort to show people that Australians aren’t all ignorant, racist dicks, I’ve designed this tshirt (attached). Hopefully it’ll help some people to feel welcome here.
