More than 100 Doctor Who T-shirts

by Andy on April 14, 2011

doctor who t-shirts

Hide Your Arms has gained something of a reputation for creating epic t-shirt lists and obsessing over films and TV shows to find t-shirts. When it was first suggested to me that I write a list of Doctor Who t-shirts (if you have an idea for a list send it in) I thought that it might be a tough ask since I don’t watch the show. I don’t have anything against it, I just already spend too much time watching TV shows, though since practically everyone says it’s good I probable should give it a go. Still, since the fans, or at least one fan, wanted a list of Doctor Who t-shirts, I made it my mission to hunt them down.

As you’ll find in the list there are quite a lot of good Dr. Who t-shirt designs out there, but nowhere near as many as with Star Wars, which is hardly surprising considering the popularity gap between the two, so I haven’t been able to create a list on the epic scale of the 200 shirts in the Star Wars list, but I think the current 119 designs is still fairly sizable. It’s also quite telling that many of the designs riff on the same themes, which suggests to me that Doctor Who designs haven’t been explored too deeply by the more creative t-shirt designers out there. You’ll also notice that a lot of shirts come from a few different retailers, which is frustrating for me since it looks like I’ve only looked in a handful of places, but the truth is that I’ve searched long & wide and not come back with many stores that sell Dr. Who t-shirts. Whether this means we will see more in the future (or that I have simply not discovered a treasure trove of excellent designs), who knows.

As ever, these lists take an awfully long time to put together, so if you would like to share the list with anyone via Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Delicious etc. I would be very grateful, your sharing keeps new people visiting the site, and that in turn means that I am able to keep writing them.

25 Experimental Jetset T-Shirts

by Andy on January 13, 2010

 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

The last list I wrote was about I [heart] NY style t-shirts, and whilst it wasn’t a particularly popular post (no viral success for me with that one), I certainly did enjoy putting it together simply because of the wide variety of versions that people had come up with. Today’s list is also focused on an iconic design style in the t-shirt world, the Experimental Jetset t-shirt and the many, many parodies of it that have been created. Interestingly, I thought that the original design (John&Paul&Ringo&George) which was created by Experimental Jetset (EJ) for 2k by Gingham had been available for quite a long time, but in reality it was only released in 2001, which makes the current ubiquity of EJ-styled designs all the more remarkable.

I’m going to say it again, even though people never seem to listen, this list is not ranked in any way, at all, the numbers are merely there for reference, much like a take out menu at a Chinese restaurant. As ever, I don’t expect it, but if you could promote this post in any way, such as with Twitter, Facebook, MySpace (yeah, it still exists, I had no idea either) posts, or Stumbles on Stumbleupon, or ill-advised tattoos, that would be absolutely fantastic. You may have noticed I didn’t include Digg in that list, that’s because for some reason HYA has been banned as a domain, I have no clue why since I’ve only ever submitted a few articles to the site, but there’s not much I can do about it, which is unfortunate because you know Digg users (Diggers?) would have loved the Star Wars list.

1 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

1. Here’s the thing, I know that the shirt was re-released recently, but I can’t find it on sale, this list isn’t getting off to a good start! *The aptly named Shirthunters found it on sale, good work!

2 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

2. What is the deal with all these Experimental Jetset tees? $20 from Mysoti

3 427x640 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

3. How depressed would you have to be wear this? $21 from the love is lame Etsy shop

4 480x480 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

4. This tee harks back to a better time when if you were a good man you’d be drunk most of the time and only losers were faithful to their wives. $20ish from boogah‘s RedBubble

5 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

5. I know who all of these are except for Jigsaw, readers, tell me who it is because I’m too lazy to do a Google lookup! BR$40 from Sound & Vision

6 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

6. My favourite (and only, admittedly) urban legend about Daft Punk is that they pay people to wear their outifts and pretend to be them DJing at gigs whilst they just play a CD. $18.95 from Shirt City

7 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

7. Bret? Present. Jermaine? Present. Murray? Present. T-Shirt? Present. $19.95 Available from Clutch Tees

8 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

8. What whut? Famous scientists in the hiz-ouse! $24.95 from Ex-Boyfriend

9 480x393 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

9. If I was Italian I would almost definitely name my kids Mario & Luigi, even if they were girls. $19.97, this shirt is available from Nerdy Shirts

10 480x214 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

10. This one does break out of the convention a bit by not having the ampersand on the last name, but it makes sense in context, and it looks cool, so I’ll let it slide (as if my opinion actually means anything). It’s totally sold out, but this Rocksmith tee was once available at Underground Hip Hop

11 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

11. Regular readers may remember that following his death last year I put a blanket ban on posting Michael Jackson related t-shirts, but the Jackson 5 is a whole different ball game. $23 from the Names Brand (a clothing company that only sell Experimental Jetset style tees)

12 480x383 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

12. I thought that this deaign was going to reference a specific game, but no, that’s the point. $16 from Huzzah Goods

13 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

13. When I saw a tee called ‘Hey Arnold’ I must admit I was hoping to see the kid with a football for a head, but this is still a pretty sweet riff on the EJ classic. $20 from MySoti

14 480x393 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

14. If you’re a younger sibling you’re going to understand what I mean when I say “don’t you just hate it when your brother just does the same move over and over until he beats you?” $19.97 from Nerdy Shirts

 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

15. Posted without comment… y’know, because I don’t think these guys existed, and if they did, they aren’t the people that we’re expected to believe they were. Also, why do they all have English names? Like I said, posted without comment. $19.99 from A Year Of Tees

16 480x475 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

16. It’s entirely likely that these names mean nothing to people that aren’t from the UK. The Carry On series of films were made between 1958 and 1978, and are prime examples of why everyone in other parts of the world think that British comedy goes no further that double entendres and innuendo, also, these films frequently promised boob, but rarely delivered. £14.49 from Redbubble

17 480x480 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

17. Because every list nowadays needs to have a twitter shirt in it otherwise no one would twitter about it. £14.66 from MySoti

18 480x393 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

18. If I had this shirt I’d have to cross out Digg, since I’m banned from it (and as HYA=Andy, I feel like they’ve banned me personally), not that I’m bitter, of course, who wouldn’t want the sophisticated comments of Digg users on my articles that I spend many hours creating $19.97 from Nerdy Shirts

19 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

19. I find it interesting the way that they’ve arranged the names on this shirt, surely Barack should be either first or last? $24.99 from Neighborhoodies

20 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

20. Unfortunately this tee is not currently for sale because the Meatbun shop is closed whilst they prepare for a relaunch, looks good though!

21 480x320 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

21. I know I said that I want the three wolf moon meme to die a horrible death, possibly involving it being crushed under all the emoticons and internet-speak that have been used to desrcibe it (it’s a very metaphorical death), but at least this design shows an ironic restraint that the original couldn’t hope to muster. $24.99 from Meme Engine

22 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

22. There’s a clever concept behind this one, whereas the original design is about one of the best bands of all time (not that I’m a fan), this design includes £18.55 from RedBubble

23 480x155 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

23. It’s classic, it has millions of followers, most comedians will cite it as being brilliant, but I don’t particularly care for it, and I’d rather watch Michael Palin making a travel documentary that cracking a joke, but even I accept there are few other comdey teams that deserve the EJ treatment. $19.99 from Modern Classic

24 480x393 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

24. I get the feeling that they probably need to add &Twitter to this, and maybe drop the GeoCities since no one under 20 is going to know what that means. $19.97 from Nerdy Shirts

26 25 Experimental Jetset T Shirts

25. Where’d ya buy that t-shirt, at the toilet store? $23 from the Names Brand

I hope you enjoyed this list and be sure to check out some the ultimate list of t-shirt lists (they aren’t all by me, but quite a few of them are!).

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109 480x445 109 I love NY style t shirts for you to love

After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

HEY EVERYONE! THIS LIST IS OKAY, BUT IT’S OLD, THANKFULLY I CREATED t-shirtblo.gs, A SITE DEDICATED TO BEING THE ULTIMATE LIST OF t-shirt blogs, VISIT NOW!

155tshirtblogs Lists: 133 t shirt blogs + 27 new additions = 160 t shirt blogs

Remember last year when I wrote an article called 65 t-shirt blogs, and I said that I didn’t think I would have found and written about all of them? Well, I was right, very right. I’ve managed to find 133 t-shirt blogs, and websites related to t-shirts that I think are of interest enough to be included in this list, and put together the second edition of the great big t-shirt blog list. The original 65 blogs are underneath the 71 latest editions and haven’t really been touched. With the new sites I’ve also included how frequently they’re updated so that you know whether you’re visiting a ghost ship of a blog before clicking through. Remember, this list isn’t in any kind of order, so if you write a tee blog and find yourself listed low down, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean anything, its just how I happened to write the list.

Any blogs that I’ve missed off the list and been notified about at a later date are going to be added right at the bottom of the list, at the moment there are 27 additions.

1. BLOKK
Update Frequency: A couple of times a week – active
Bio: Blokk is a Russian language blog, but they often let the pictures do the talking, so don’t let that language barrier stop you giving it a look.
Link

2. Crucial Headache [Dead]
Update Frequency: Couple of times a month – currently MIA for 1 month
Bio:This guy only writes about t-shirts he owns, usually vintage band ones, and whilst posts are relatively few and far between they are usually really long posts and quite a good read.

Update Frequency:N/A
Bio: I’m sure this used to be a blog, but now just redirects to a parked domain page, it might pop back up in the future, who knows!

Update Frequency: About four times a month – active
Bio: Not my particular cup of tea, but if you’re into ‘funny’ shirts then this could be the blog for you.
Link

5. Aaron’s T-Shirt Review
Update Frequency: About 3 times a month – variable but active
Bio: Almost all the links might be affiliate-based, but its still a pretty good read, and in a more traditional website format than a regular blog.
Link

6. Fat Seagull
Update Frequency:Daily – active
Bio: Very much an underrated blog from the UK, one of my favourites in the the t-shirt world, lots of great streetwear tees.

Link

10. 辣椒网志

Update Frequency: Daily
Bio: Promotional blog for a custom printing company called You Design It.
Link

12. Thy Goodies [Dead]
Update Frequency: Two a month, with frequent breaks, no posts for last two months, dead?

Update Frequency: Daily until going MIA two months ago
Bio: Mostly funny tee recommendations, with good commentary.

Link

16. T Shirty.net

Bio: Slick looking blog with really quality posts and brands.
Link

18. Rumplo
Update Frequency: Lots of tees every day – very active
Bio: This isn’t a blog, but needs to be included in almost any t-shirt list. Rumplo is a place where people post cool tees and they get commented on and faved, its a young site but already popular so there are lots of tees to look at.
Link

Link

24. TShirt Review
Update Frequency: Every couple of days – active
Bio: This well-written blog that uncovers brands that you don’t see much of in the t-blogosphere. One thing that makes me uneasy about them is that you can pay them to review your company.
Link

25. Blog T-shirt [Dead]
Update Frequency: Irregular, MIA for a couple of months – possibly dead
Bio: This blog, which I think is written by someone for whom English isn’t their first language, seems to be for a guy to show off his t-shirt designs (which are available through Spreadshirt), but he seems to have given up just a few weeks into the project.
Link

26. The T-shirt Review
Update Frequency: Daily- active
Bio: Well written and well designed, what’s not to like!
Link

27. Jay’s Van Tribe Blog [Corporate]
Update Frequency: Weekly

Link

28. Thunderfrogs

Link

31. Assault Apparel’s Blog [Corporate]
Update Frequency: Daily – active
Bio: This blog serves as promotion for Assault Apparel, but the writer also makes a lot of effort to help others making their way in the tee business by writing tutorials for designers and providing other valuable information.
Link

32. tshirtreviewblog.com
Update Frequency: It was frequent until going MIA a month ago, though the write did explain that they were sorry for the absence and hope to be back soon.
Bio: Well written blog that ticks all the boxes in my opinion, hopefully the writer will indeed be back soon.
Link

33. TV Teez [Dead]
Update Frequency: Irregular, possibly dead, only 3 posts written
Bio: I like the idea of a blog written about t-shirts that are about and from TV shows, but when you’ve written 3 posts in 3 months then things aren’t looking so good.
Link

34. Buy This T-shirt
Update Frequency: Multiple posts daily – active
Bio: Just pictures of good tees (excellent product picks), that’s how I like it.
Link

35. Indie Clothing Blog

Link

36. T-Shirt Rater
Update Frequency: Regular posts every few days – active
Bio: “The funny T-shirt blog”, so I guess you know what kind of designs you’re in for if you click through!
Link

37. T-shirt Guy’s T-shirt Blog
Update Frequency: Regular, at least once a week – active
Bio: Nice commentary, nice (non-arty) product picks.
Link

38. Black T-shirt |Blog
Update Frequency: Almost daily – active
Bio: When I found a blog called ‘Black T-shirt blog’ I figured that all the tees would be black. Wrong! They like all the colours of the rainbow, and they also seem to like text tees too.
Link

39. Talk About T-shirts [Dead]
Update Frequency: Daily, then weekly, now MIA – presumably dead
Bio: Only four posts, so clearly the author got tired of the subject rather quickly, and didn’t really know what direction to take the blog in (startup guide? designer resource? product picks?)
Link

Lists: 65 T-shirt Blogs

by Andy on November 12, 2007

blogmosaicpostlogo Lists: 65 T shirt Blogs

*I HAVE WRITTEN AN UPDATED POST WITH 133 t-shirt blogs, WHICH CAN BE FOUND HERE*

I don’t think that anyone has yet managed to nail down just how many t-shirt blogs there are, and even though I try and keep tabs on these kinds of things I know I’ve missed some off. If you know of any that aren’t on this list please include them in the comments so that I can add them. There are no guarantee’s of quality in this list, some of the blogs do rely a bit too much on affiliate links in their tee picks for my liking, but give most of them are worth a look in my opinion.
