Haven’t blogged Threadless, mostly because when they changed everything with their website it made it inaccessible to me to blog, I couldn’t save images so I had to screen shot every single page and then crop the bits I needed out so it was taking the best part of an hour to blog. Also I don’t think the new website has the community feel that it used to, I used to love spending time rating tees but I’m put off. I also went from getting a tee every month from Threadless to every 3-4 months. Not cool.
They’ve also scrapped their $1.50 streetteam points for each pic. I understand why they’d do this however, I miss looking at the galleries of people goofing around the the same tee that I’ve got!
As I haven’t been on for a while I have to familiarise myself with the site again. Some crackin’ new designs though. Feeling big love for Starry Pattern by Fred Hoffman. Bit of a homage to Mr Van Gogh, can totally see why this one has been printed, shows super originality and also I have a soft spot for all over printed tees.
I can see this one being popular with the cat loving Threadless fans, especially as we find kitties cuter than than kids. I also highly recommend girly boat necks, and I think this design would look less severe on the natural colour tee than on the white. This tee is called Drunken Cat Drawings by Jillian Fisher. Quite nice to see some different names on Threadless though, did just feel like they printed designs by the same 3 people all the time!
Possibly my new favourite Threadless design ever! Me and my 6 year old daughter have just spent about 5 minutes laughing like goons at Magic Bacon Ride by George Ostubo. The facial expressions are fab and the choice to put it on a pale blue tee was a good one. One word, WANT!
My husband likes this tee, it’s not my cup of tea. I enjoy the tank but I think it looks a but silly on the guy! It is an interesting mix of colour though, I’d be inclined to get it a size bigger and wear a bright pink or yellow long sleeved tee underneath it. I think The City That Never Sleeps by Dina Prasetyawan is a bit of a marmitey tee though.
This next tee isn’t dissimilar to a Unicorn Star Wars tee that I already own from Threadless. Is it too similar? I’m not sure because I kinda want it. Nar Wars by Austin Frankel is so well drawn, all the colours pop and it’s in no way lost on the black tee. Can’t see what isn’t to love!
Lastly but not leastly for this blog CATastrophic End of the Milky Way by Niel Quisaba and Soloyo is a cute mixture of colour and a great concept for a tee, although it kind of looks like the cat is spewing it out rather than lapping it up!
