I like this shirt, but I am absolutely kicking myself that I can’t remember what game it is referencing. Can any of you guys put me out of my misery?

Constanzig by Commonstitch

by billpyle on November 19, 2012

A Seinfeld and Danzig mashup doesn’t seem like an obvious thing to do, but this one by Commonstitch is well done. It mashes up the classic Danzig logo with George Costanza. Still a weird mashup, but its funny and well executed. Its printed on American Apparel and is available in a wide variety of colors. It costs only $15.99.


Post image for Pepe Jones gives HYA readers 20% off with our exclusive coupon code

I was pretty happy when Pepe Jones submitted a post last week, I like their style and it made me glad I have the submission system since I wouldn’t have heard about them otherwise. They also seem to be pretty nice folks too, offering HYA readers 20% off anything in their Etsy shop with the coupon code: HideYourJones20

They didn’t mention any expiration date so I’m going to assume that this is a long term code, but if you like something you’d probably be better off picking it up sooner rather than later. Be on the lookout for a hands-on review from Umang of Pepe Jones’ shirts in the coming weeks too.

Post image for “Pinup Zombie Girl” t-shirt from ZombieFriedTees at Etsy

While browsing through Etsy I stumbled across this shirt, which brings together two of the greatest inventions ever. Sexy vintage pinup ladies and zombies. Now whether or not the end product is something that everyone will like is up for debate, it is however undeniable that it’s an awesome concept. My problem with the shirt is that the positioning of the design leaves a lot of empty space. I also feel that the dark colour of the shirt overshadows the design a tad, personally a lighter colour, such as grey, would have shown off the image a bit better.


gangsta frankenstein

It’s pretty rare that I get to mention a t-shirt company that comes from Isreal, but this is one of those cases, though with their international shipping being $6 it hardly matters where they’re from.

I’m quite surprised that I’ve never seen this concept before, the ‘gangsta’ treatment has been given to lots of pop culture icons (Darth Vader being a standout in my mind), so credit where it’s due to Total Lost, this is a funny t-shirt and the artwork is nicely executed.

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.

vegan academy t-shirt

I bookmarked this tee when I was writing the Scott Pilgrim post that got loads of views and crashed the site for a couple of days, but as the shirt wasn’t in the film I didn’t want to put it in the post just for the sake of having more shirts in it. Of course the reference here is that Todd Ingram went away to Vegan Academy to master his vegan powers. Good, now no Scott Pilgrim superfans can go on about how I don’t check the references.

I can admire people for deciding to live a vegan lifestyle, as long as they aren’t all up in my business about it of course (you’ve made your choice, I’ve made mine), but I just love meat too much to even contemplate forgoing it, at least I don’t just eat any old crap, I really enjoy food and cooking, and we have pretty good standards for raising animals here in Cumbria.

milhaus simpson bauhaus t-shirt

People that like The Simpsons and Bauhaus? There’s probably more overlap on that Venn diagram than I’d assume. When I went to Berlin a couple of years ago for T-Shirt Day my hotel was next to the Bauhaus museum, I didn’t venture inside, but the building looked pretty damn cool.

Anyway, this tee is damn cool, and it’s screenprinted by hand in Philadelphia by a guy called Patt Whelan, so it’s got to be good.

Brooklyn T-shirt by Live Poultry

by Andy on January 24, 2011

brooklyn t-shirt

“Brooklyn” silkscreened in the iconic style of the old industrial signs (like Kentile Floors and Eagle Clothing) that are seen throughout Brooklyn.

When I was followed on Twitter by someone with the username @LivePoultry I was expecting some kind of chicken activism project, not some cool tees.

Costiness=$27 Buy it at Live Poultry


faces of death t-shirt

I don’t know whether I like this shirt, but I certainly do find the idea of it interesting. Milton Carter has been creating ‘Faces of Death’ posters/illustrations of notable figures that died in a year since way back in 1997, but I think that this is the first year that the illustrations (some of which are by Milton’s ‘artsy friends’) have made their way to a t-shirt. Celebrities in the 2010 edition include:

Alex Chilton, Doug Fieger, Mark Linkous, George Steinbrenner, Teddy Pendergrass, Harvey Pekar, Corey Haim, Art Linkletter, Jimmy dean, Arthur Penn, Sparky Anderson, Peter Graves, Robert Probert, Dixie Carter, Manute Bol, Louise Bourgeois, Eddie Fisher, Mitch Miller, JD Salinger, Zelda Rubinstein, Tom Bosley, Jay Reatard, Malcolm McLaren, Tony Curtis, Alexander McQueen, Lena Horne, Rue McClanahan, John Forsyth, Guru, Ronnie James Dio, Robert Culp, Solomon Burke, Gregory Isaacs, Gary Coleman, DENNIS HOPPER

I can almost guarantee that after parsing that list you went “…oh yeaaahhhh, that guy.”

Super Mario Skull T-shirt

It’s funny that Mario tees like this (the same pose with a bit of a twist) continue to be created, and people continue to enjoy seeing and buying them.

bear pong t-shirt

Beer pong is something that just doesn’t exist in the UK at the moment, I would assume that a few people might play it at Universities (especially ones with American football teams), but there’s no culture for it in this country, so this shirt is a bit lost on me. Still, I do enjoy puns.

typography t-shirt

Love, love, love the type work on this tee, really impressed by it, and that massive print is working… big time.

Gotta love that colourway, and good to see them not letting the zipper getting in the way of what is a lovely looking sketch-style print.

The King by dkngstudios at Etsy

by Andy on January 15, 2010

I should have probably posted this a week ago when people were celebrating what would have been Elvis Presley’s birthday had he not suffered a tragic though surely not entirely unexpected burger related death 33 years ago, although I don’t know for a fact that this design is actually related to Elvis. Time has never stood in the way of cool things looking cool though… except perhaps for the Charlie Chaplin mustache, which quite rapidly became the Hitler mustache, which I would have thought would cause it to lose some most of its appeal.

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

by Andy on December 14, 2009


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!
