salt & fat t-shirt

I was drawn to this shirt because of it’s simplicity, it’s just a pleasingly straightforward image that says the two things that you need to make something tasty. I was completely unaware that Salt & Fat is also an excellent food blog that I’ve squandered a few minutes browsing just now when I know I should be focused on blogging not beets.

If you’re after food t-shirts, then it might be worth checking out this list of 200 food t-shirts I wrote a while back.

the empire strikes out t-shirt

I wonder how often a week goes by that I don’t mention a Star Wars t-shirt, we’re on two this week at least, I’m not even that big of a fan!

Ian Leino has really stepped up a gear in terms of his releases recently, both on daily tee sites and in his own store, the latter makes it seem to me as if business is going well for him, so hopefully that means we’ll be seeing more from him soon.

The above design is available on RIPT right now and for the next 18 hours (at the time this post goes live) for $10 as a tee, $38 as a hoodie, $15 in kids sizes, and if you want your baby to see the dark side onesies are $18 (I wonder how many of those RIPT sell a day?). If you catch this post after the design has entered the graveyard at RIPT, fear not, Ian has got the design in his store too, printed on a 3/4 sleeve raglan shirt which I think looks pretty good. The shirt is $19 but you can get 10% off with the coupon code VADER10 until midnight tonight, and I would presume that coupon works store-wide and not just on this design.

Ian is also running a giveaway of magnets featuring this design to help promote the shirt, check out his blog for how to participate in the competition.

angry birds t-shirts

I’m more than a little bit late to the Angry Birds party, having resisted that particular time-sink until a few weeks ago when I downloaded one of the free versions of the game (along with Words With Friends, on which I my username is hideyourarms if you fancy a game). It’s fun, but thankfully I haven’t become obsessed with it… yet.

garbage pail kids t-shirt by yes no maybe

I’m pretty sure that as a 26 year old person I should be old enough to remember who/what the Garbage Pail Kids are/were, but to be honest I have no recollection beyond the actual name. Still, that doesn’t stop me from being impressed that Yes No Maybe got John Pound (who did the original Garbage Pail Kids artwork) to create this t-shirt design for them. Like I said, I have no recollection of GPK, but I would assume that this shirt is going to bring out a lot of nostalgia in the over-25 section of the readership.

rubiks cube x Rodin's

It’s funny to think that there is a museum with this statue outside it in Philadelphia. I remember walking past it on the way to the Art Museum (okay, I didn’t go in the art museum… I just ran up the Rocky steps) and noticed Rodin’s The Thinker set back from the sidewalk. My first thought was “that’s, HERE?” but I later found out that their version isn’t the original, which explains why it was out on the street, but the Rodin museum was definitely well worth a visit.

Also, Rubik’s cubes are cool, so yet again laFraise have produced a nice t-shirt.

“Queen” by SuperSuperficial

by Andy on April 13, 2011

queen with a mustache

Thinking about it, if you had made this a couple of hundred years ago your head would have been on a pike atop the Tower of London and your eyes would have been pecked out by crows, but as it is this seems like quite a fun tee for people that have caught Royal Wedding fever.

Costiness=£35 Buy it at SuperSuperficial (sizes S & M only)


all cities t-shirt by seeking the throne

I was going to put ‘street art lovers’ or ‘graffiti lovers’ in the title, then I realised that it’s all just art anyway, and that the utensils on the tee can be used in any way that people want, hell, they could even be used as weapons if you really wanted too. Everything’s open to interpretation when you have no point of reference like a description.

The next Hide Your Arms t-shirt?

by Andy on March 30, 2011

hide your arms heather grey

Sorry to post about internal HYA business twice in a row, but I couldn’t hold this one in any longer. I’ve been thinking that since the HYA hoodies have been selling fairly well I might take the plunge and have the above mockup printed.

American Apparel Tri-blends are amongst my favourite t-shirt blanks, they’re super soft, wear well, last a long time without fading, and provide a great canvas overall for a print. I also really like the one-colour outline print on the HYA hoodies, so I thought I’d check out what it would look liked mocked onto a dark heather grey, and I think you’ll agrees that it looks pretty sweet.

I need your feedback if I’m going to print this, I might even do a pre-order sale (at a discount, of course), I want to know if I’ve used up the good will of readers supporting the site by buying t-shirts/hoodies/posters/pins/stickers or if you really do like the logo and actually want to buy it. At the time of writing the tee has 13 likes on Facebook, if lots more people were to ‘like’ it that would be a good indicator to me that people actually want it.

So yeah, gimme feedback, gimme your likes, and hopefully I’ll be able to release another tee and then think about what’s next as far as the HYA store is concerned.


society losing focus t-shirt by freshjive

It’s a fair bet that Freshjive had much higher things in mind when they created this other than to make people like me look at it and go, “ooh, what a nice colourway.”

“Fifty References to Seinfeld” t-shirt

by Andy on March 30, 2011

Anyone else love Seinfeld back in the day? I think it was a gateway show for me to get me into ‘better’ comedy when I was a teenager, not that Seinfeld was high art, but it was certainly a cut above most other shows on at the time. This shirt looks pretty fun, referencing 50 famous things from the show, though I can’t spot one referencing Rochelle, Rochelle. Again, I know I’m losing my edge when I’m posting and liking things at 80sTees, even though the tees appears to have massive arms.

top gun t-shirt by glennz

My friends went through a phase of watching Top Gun pretty much every week, we even got polo shirts and dog tags made for a night out with our own Goose/Maverick-style call signs printed on them (I was the Muffin Man… you don’t want to know). As such, I kind of have a love/hate thing with Top Gun, because on the one hand it is the quintessential 80s movie and a lot of fun to watch, but on the other, I’m just sick of watching it.

very old movie t-shirt by lafraise

Not really sure what’s going on in this tee but I like it, which is pretty much par for the course when it comes to me and laFraise.

bruce lee t-shirt

I won’t pretend to understand this t-shirt, I don’t know a lot about martial arts master Bruce Lee except that he loved saying “Hi” to people, sometimes more than once. Apparently “Jun Fan Gung Hu Institute” was a martial arts school set up by Bruce in Seattle, and presumably Oakland and Los Angeles too. Not often you see something this cool as official merchandise (it’s straight from the Bruce Lee store).

alien encounter t-shirt

It’s a little bit frustrating that Modern Hippie Co. are showing us just mockups (and I’m pretty sure I recognise the mock), because I get the feeling that their shirts would look an awful lot better if we could see the real thing. I know I say that a lot, but if you have t-shirts in your hands, take a picture of them, let us know what they look like, what the print looks like, the details. You’ve put all this effort in, and you hide the tees away, madness!

Anyway, this is a cool design, I like that little splash of blue perking up the sea of black and grey.

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.
