Daily T-shirt Roundup for January 9th

by Andy on January 9, 2012

sloth goonies t-shirt

I’m not too excited by the Sloth & Crossbones Goonies shirt at TeeFury today, you?

Very cute illustration style on this Shirt.Woot tee, maybe this shirt will perk you up to stick with your New Year’s resolutions?

Not the kind of Star Wars t-shirt that I’d wear, but a pretty cool concept from RIPT nonetheless.

Can anyone explain to me why The Yetee are describing this felines as pizzacats?

Very cool Fantastic Mr. Fox inspired t-shirt at Shirt Punch today.

GraphicLab have a shirt that is a little lost on me, it’s a mashup of The Impossible Man from the Marvel universe and Magnitude from Community.

Star Trek inspired visual pun from TeeMinus24 today.

I’m fairly sure that this TeeRaiders design is the first Warehouse 13 shirt that I’ve seen. give this well worn phrase another run out.

OtherTees have a Doctor Who shirt that I’m sure I’ve seen before.

Qwertee make a connection between Portal and zombies.

We don’t have Fresca over here in the UK, so this 24tee shirt is wasted on me.

Cool new shirt at DBH today.

There’s a couple of new shirts up on pre-order at Goodjoe.

Loviu reiterate their ‘barbie is a slut’ stance.

Tilteed have their boomerang-based design up again.

Catch of the Day Tee have nothing for us, again.

Tee Gazette has an update on the Boston Tee Party event being held in the summer.

I saw this t-shirt on Flickr months ago and it’s taken me until now to remember to post it.

Co-Tee TV Episode 88: Moustardche, Javaboi Industries, and Hot Dogs from Coty Gonzales on Vimeo.

Coty has a new episode of Co-Tee TV up, featuring Moustardache, Javaboi Industries, and Hot Dogs.

The selection process may have been unscientific, but it’s nice to see HYA at the top (the position may or may not mean anything) of this list of the “21 Most Important t-shirt blogs of 2011.”

Tee Hunter take a look at the A Bathing Ape x Star Wars collection.

Fuel Your Creativity have an article about starting a clothing line with no money. It does make it all seems a little easy in my eyes, but there are worse stepping off points.

Here’s another t-shirt from PalmerCash I bookmarked ages ago but never got around to posting about.

2sickbastards have got up to 50% off their art prints until January 13th.

Snapback hats are now in store at Glamour Kills.

Did you know that howies was part of Timberland? I say was because as of the start of this year they bought themselves out and are now an independent business again.

Terratag‘s up to 50% off sale has hit it’s final week, ends on Friday.


a bathing ape charity t-shirt

There seems to be a bit of backlash amongst people (that I’m following on Twitter, at least) against buying things like posters and t-shirts which give a portion of their sales to charity to help with the massive devastation in Japan. I can see the point, why buy something when you could just give directly to a charity instead? Well, I used to think that until I started selling things myself, when I realised I should probably stop being so cynical and accept that people are just trying to do something nice. Almost universally the people selling ‘charity products’ have their hearts in the right place, and most of them tell you to give directly to a charity if you aren’t interested in their product anyway.

If anyone is justified in selling a t-shirt to help Japan it’s a Japanese brand like A Bathing Ape, who I usually don’t mention because their goods (whilst cool) are astoundingly popular, a random t-shirt I looked at on the EU store cost £70. Yes, £70. However, this “rescue and rebuild” t-shirt that they’ve just released actually bucks that trend, costing ‘just’ 3990 yen, which is about £30, downright reasonably by their standards!

I can’t read Japanese so I don’t really know what’s going on with this t-shirt, but it looks pretty cool, and it’ll be doing some good in the world, check it out here.


Bape opens a US online store… yay.

by Andy on June 16, 2009


I kind of want to like Bape/A bathing Ape, but whenever I go into their stores or see their stuff online I can’t help but think that it’s all a bit the same, and I wouldn’t want to wear the original stuff. They seem to be cool because people say they’re cool, and because they’re expensive, which is basically the opposite of what HYA is all about, so it’s pretty natural that I’m not so into them, though I must admit that their stores are usually really well designed. Also, the staff in the NY branch are rude. Still, at least now you don’t have to suffer the indignity of being judged when walking in one of their stores and can buy it online.

LOADS of new stuff from Wrongwroks

by Andy on February 17, 2009


Tees, hats, stickers, iPhone cases, the latest two releases from Wrongwroks have pretty much got it going on. If I wanted to get traffic I guess I should have put scantily clad model shot at the top of this post, but I like the pixelated ape tee way to much to bury it in the gallery with everything else.

A Bathing Abe by I Came From Nothing

A Bathing Abe by I Came From Nothing

I don’t own much Bape (okay, just a mook and a small fleece blanket), but I still like to keep my eye on A Bathing Ape since they do help change the direction that streetwear heads. Being parodied is par for the course when you in the top of your field like A Bathing Ape are, and this ‘A Bathing Abe’ tee is a really great example of it. I guess that if you wanted to go with a ‘funny’ angle then the designer could have put a towel on honest Abe’s head (in that almost magical way that only women can achieve for some reason), but I guess that would have taken away from the purity of the parody, and probably worsened the tee overall, which I guess is why I write about tees and don’t design them!Costiness=£10 Link (also available in a badass gold foil on black colourway)
