dungeons & dragons t-shirt

This is Seibei‘s weekly offering, coming to you a little late because of Britain taking a 4-day weekend for the Royal Wedding (which we’re still on, I just can’t tear myself away from work for that long!). If you’re a Dungeons & Dragons fan then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this Experimental Jetset styled tee. The shirt is available until May 6th so you’ve got a few days left to pick it up.

ferris buellers day off t-shirt

I am areally big fan of Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, they just don’t make teen movies like that anymore, nowadays if you’re making a movie aimed at 16-20 year olds there has to be lots of unnecessary boob and gross out scenes, and whilst FBDO does have that in parts, it’s a lot more charming and endearing than it’s modern counterparts. If you think about it Ferris is actually a bit of an asshole, but it was done in a way that made you like the guy, put the same character into a film today and he’d look like a total douche.

Found Item Clothing have given FBDO the experimental jetset treament, and while they were at it did the same to the Goonies.

It’s Always Sunny In Experimental Jetset

by Andy on February 12, 2010

Post image for It’s Always Sunny In Experimental Jetset

I think that the gaps between each line (any type-fiends want to tell me what the name for that is?) might be a little bit too large, but when it comes to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia t-shirts I’m willing to let a few things slide.

25 Experimental Jetset T-Shirts

by Andy on January 13, 2010


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


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


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


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


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


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. 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


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


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


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. 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. 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. 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


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!).

Most of you probably don’t realise who Jason Cosper is, but he was the first guy to run a blog about t-shirts (and even if he wasn’t the first, he was the best), Preshrunk.org. That blog has been quiet since April (and pretty quiet for the past couple of years, really), but there’s still a lot of good stuff in the archives, and I probably wouldn’t have started HYA if I hadn’t been a Preshrunk fan, so I guess I owe him quite a lot.

Fortunately, this isn’t one of those occasions when I feel compelled to write about something just because of the person that did the design (you can tell which posts they are, right?), because I like Experimental Jetset style tees (yes, I am gathering links for an upcoming list, naturally), and I really like Mad Men. I’m a few episodes behind Americans, so the finale is a long way off for me, but I’ve really enjoyed the season so far, if anything you should be jealous that I still have more episodes to watch!

Incidentally, the original Experimental Jetset designs are being re-issued by a Japanese brand called Publik, after many years of not being officially available.
