Last time I mentioned Miley Cyrus I clearly wasn’t in a good mood, but I can’t really blame Miley for being more popular than Hide Your Arms, it’s not her fault, and every so often she does wear a pretty cool t-shirt, like this cut back number she was spotted in earlier this week in Philly.
Fun fact, I’ve visited the bank in the background… I think.
LeanMode and lean-mode.com is based on stress relief and relaxation through The Art of Leaning; the simplest, most efficient, and most widely known, yet unappreciated technique of relaxation. LeanMode is all about the natural route to ease stress and our t-shirts promote leaning and are meant to help people lean your own way by being themselves and doing the things they enjoy doing while relaxing. Visit our website lean-mode.com to learn more and to check out our t-shirts. Thank you and have a great day!
Andy: LeanMode is a website teaching people how to lean so that they can relax better, there’s even a “how to” video on the website so that people can learn to lean. My first guess is that this is someone’s attempt to make a viral video that’s inspired by the awful how-to videos of the 90s that people would order from late night television. If that’s the case then I think that the use of a different font for the ‘M’ on the t-shirt is also intentional because no designer would ever put it there otherwise.
If I’m wrong and all these is completely earnest, well, society seems fairly doomed at this point.
Storenvy, the internet’s only combo hosted store-builder and community marketplace, is getting close to having a whopping 20,000 stores on their platform (19,207 at the time of writing), and they really want to climb that hill, so they’re offering a bonus for people who give them a little push.
If they reach 20,000 stores by Monday night (PST, I presume) they’re going to give all the stores on their network their ‘super discount codes’ feature for free for a month, when it would usually cost them $2.99 per month. I know it’s not the most massive of incentives, but if you were thinking of checking out Storenvy for your store then now would be a great time to open account and get testing.
Play Granade is new brand from two Latvian aces. You should definitely check out our page www.playgranade.com to check out super awesome photos in our flickr link also there is link to webshop to meet with our creative mind blowing work. And yes, you should definitely check out our social life to join super fun adventure in future. //
Andy: Well, these guys certainly are quite excitable, and I’m pretty sure the first HYA post about a Latvian brand. Favourite design for me is the grenade logo print.
I’m not an avid viewer of Spongebob Squarepants, but I’m not entirely sure what Patrick would have done to piss off Muhammad Ali so much that he had to knock him down. Similarly, I don’t know what happened to Marilyn Monroe but I think it makes for a fairly cool t-shirt at A Better Tomorrow.

… you always know you’ll get a hit. Awful joke aside, this shirt is pretty much par for the course for Glennz, though I don’t think it’s one of his best. Also, all tees are $15.95 until Sunday in the G-man’s store as part of his Summer sale.

Almaic is a culmination of the culture and creativity that has been in my bloodline for hundreds of years. My family fled from Iraq in the early 90’s seeking political refuge and it was in America where I fully embraced my artistic abilities. Almaic was created as an outlet for me to showcase my gift as well as leave my imprint on the world. I have chosen to focus the brand on the juxtaposition of hip-hip culture, modern design and my heritage in combinations that blend the abstract and the authentic. As I continue to embrace my past and present while focusing on cultivating meaningful relationships with the people, places, and things I come across in my future the brand will live and evolve as I do.
Andy: Is it just me or is the description here quite a lot more dramatic and… ‘wordy’ than you would expect when you see the items being sold? The designs are perfectly fine, but it’s hard for me to connect with them when they’re associated with a part of the US I’ve never visited (Portland and the North West), which is why I’m making fun of the text when really I should give someone that had to flee Iraq a bit more respect than that.
When I saw that Threadless were selling a t-shirt in support of Philippine flood relief I wondered if AJ Dimarucot would be behind the design, and of course he is, which is good because that virtually guaranteed that this shirt would be great. 100% of net proceeds from sales go to Architecture for Humanity’s Philippines Floods Response Program. You can find the shirt here, please don’t click on the first link to Threadless in this post, that’s an auto-link to my affiliate link and I don’t think it would be right for me to make money out of a charity tee.
The ‘Curiosity Killed the Cat’ shirt is a bit of a cheap gag at Tshirt Laundry this week, and since I don’t know/care what an owlbear is that means that the Dexter-inspired Bay Harbor Butcher shirt is the de facto winner of this weeks meaningless competition of me choosing my favourite.
‘The Black Knight Rises’ at TeeFury today, forcing Monty Python and Batman to kiss in a closet even though they don’t really want to. The image is perfectly good, but would you really want to wear this on a t-shirt?
Shirt.Woot have a design about red shirts that isn’t printed on a red shirt…
‘Space Time Impressionism’ one of my favourite Doctor Who shirts for a while, good work RIPT.
As usual I feel that DBH have too big of a print.
I don’t know what a Chocobo is so I can’t really say if this shirt at Qwertee makes sense or not.
Part of me is a little disappointed that Shirt Punch have put out a Keep Calm tee since I always thought they were about that kind of thing.
This shirt at The Yetee is based on a game called Snow Bros which has apparently passed me by until now.
‘Neighbourhood Friends’ makes me smile again at it’s new temporary home of OtherTees.
True Blood’s club meets Disney in a shirt at TeeMinus24.
Baconator is a shirt at TeeRaiders that I would only wear if I could BBQ more.
I know that the whole meme is pretty silly, but this Nyan Catwoman design at TeeBusters made me smile.
6dollarshirts have a t-shirt that was pretty lame in the 90s and probably hasn’t had enough time to become ironic yet.

It’s not often that I’ll give a simple store restock much attention (unless it’s at Rigu, of course, in which case it is huge news), but I really like these designs from Sneaky Studios so I thought you guys would like to see it mentioned. Oh, and anyone that mentions the price (which is in NZD, FYI) in the comments will receive and overly long reply from me telling you to stop being so cheap.
Here’s four brand new LED Shirts from T-Qualizer – and they’re wedding themed!
Are you (or someone you know) getting married this summer? Then you absolutely must check out these new light up LED shirts from T-Qualizer. Meet Destiny in style (and Bambi, and Jade…) with the Groom T-Qualizer LED t-shirt.
For the ladies, here’s the LED Shirt for the Bride. If you’re in charge of the bachelorette party, and are afraid of losing the bride then deck her out in one of these. Not only will everyone know who to buy the drinks for, but you’ll also be able to keep a close eye on her in case things get too crazy.
In addition to these two new T-Qualizer LED shirts we’ve also got two new designs to add to our FlashWear Anim8 line. They’re not sound-sensitive, but they do flash in an never-ending loop (which is fitting for a flashing wedding shirt.)
Both feature a California-style license plate design, but feature custom state names and a sticker that expires… never! Muhahaha!
Andy: This may surprise you, but I actually think this kind of thing is pretty neat. I’m not saying that they’re something you should wear every day, but for their purpose they do work extremely well. I once made a Tron costume which had one of the graphic equalizers on it that reacted to sound for a house party and people loved it, so if you’re on a stag/hen weekend then I can see why something like this would be a good addition to the usual war chest of bridal veils and blow up dolls.
You’ve got today and tomorrow to use the code SUMMER to get 15% off at Split Reason and after that you’re just going to have to pay full price like a chump.
Look, we admit there are dozens of great online companies where you can buy funny, offensive, or wacky shirts.The market is saturated with terrible designs and shoddy quality.
All that is about to remain unchanged.
We offer the same old stuff with different phrases as the other guys. If you like that stuff (and long ship times) you’ll probably like us as well.
Sure, we don’t have a fancy ‘website’ or ‘designers’ that ‘are funny’, but because we don’t have that expensive overhead we pass nothing on to you but a shirt. In a bag. With your address on it. We promise the shirt will be dry. And new. Did we mention dry?
We add about five new shirts a week, some are funny, some aren’t. That is for you to decide.
Andy: I appreciate a refreshing bit of honesty in a submission, but I was hoping that it was merely modesty and that these guys would actually have some funny stuff. In reality unfortuantely this isn’t the case, not funny, some of it is just straight copyright infringement (a Thundercats logo with nothing done to make it a parody or different is just stealing a design), this submission has tiny pictures (what is this? A submission for ants!?), and they say that their designs and shirts are poor quality, which is kind of unfair on Spreadshirt (they are using a Spreadshirt storefront) because their shipping time isn’t that bad and I don’t really have a problem with their quality. I’m sure that this submission itself was meant to be funny and be a bit of reverse psychology, but I have to agree with them on every point, apart from the bit about expensive overheads since their using a POD printer for their fulfillment and that is an overhead. I got a bit of grief from people last time I called out a company for poor designs, so it’s really good that these guys did it for me and saved me the hassle.
You’ve got a couple more days to get 30% off at FFee Clothing with the coupon code sunnyday in their end of Summer sale.
I’m a little confused by this design at A Better Tomorrow, I quite like it but the style makes me think that it’s a reference to something rather than original art, but I can’t work out what that reference might be, a little help guys?

dr popcorn apparel – is a tee company from Sheffield, UK.
Having just dropped their summer collection, there is no better time to check them out.
They are bringing original and fresh designs on lightweight fair trade apparel to the table. Gnarly, rough and definitely not your run of the mill tees. Not to mention they come in their very own hand printed box. For both, the ladies and the gentlemen alike. Why not go check their website and lookbook, to find out what they are about. They are active on most social media platforms including an active Facebook page, twitter and a blog – all of which can be found through their website.
If you like what the have to show you, then why not take them up on their 15% discount, with the code: OMGDPA
Andy: Who else really likes the look of that box? A box always suggests good things because if a company is bothering to put that much effort into the packaging then you’d like to think that the tee will be good quality too. I do think that there’s a certain disparity between the images that the name conjures and the actual designs and style of their lookbook, but the designs are good so that’s not really an issue.
Shirt.Woot have a Starfox shirt that people are finding a bit disappointing since it doesn’t use every letter of the alphabet in the sentence, which does kind of ruin the point of using that particular sentence.
Thundercats are given the college treatment at RIPT with what I feel is pretty nice artwork, it’s certainly had more effort put into it than most college style shirts.
If you want to cover your torso with a bear then boy to DBH have a shirt for you.
