ThatShirtRul.es and Heartees.com – kind of like NotCot, but for t-shirts

It turns out I’m not the only person turning out new sites at the moment, as two new tee sites based on broadly similar concepts have cropped up in the past week. For years, literally years, I’ve wanted to create a site that was notcot but specifically focused on t-shirts but I never round to it, largely because I didn’t think I had the skills. Thankfully, or ruefully in my case, two sites have came along in the past week (with another one coming up) that appear to run along the same lines as “NotCot for t-shirts.” Heartees comes from Tom Neal, who some of you may recognise if you’ve ever used a t-shirt mockup, and ThatShirtRul.es comes from Brad Tennant, the guy that made Indie Threads.

Neither of the sites are perfect, at least not for what I’d want to get out of them (the designers are both probably pretty happy), Heartees offers a minimal t-shirt discovering experience, whereas ThatShirtRul.es is a bit more traditionally blog-like with user-voting thrown into the mix. TSR are also offering the 100th t-shirt company to submit a shirt the opportunity of a free ad spot, and thereafter will be giving an ad spot to the top tee at the end of each month.

    Nice finds. I have been working on a similar site for a while now. Actually “I haven’t been working” on it would be more accurate but I am now remotivated.
