$14 tees at Headline Shirts today only

by Andy on October 18, 2012

Post image for $14 tees at Headline Shirts today only

As it so happens, I’m actually wearing a t-shirt from Headline Shirts today, and it’s pretty darn nice and hasn’t been troubled much by the washing machine. By that I of course mean that the print hasn’t faded or shrunk during washing, I do wear clean clothes, I’m clean, I’m clean!

I know it says 48 hours on the graphic up there but I’m catching this one late, so you’ll have to move quick if you want to pick up a $14 tee from Headline Shirts. They’ve also got some fun parodies about political attack ads which are worth watching.

This was actually a 48-hour sale at Headline Shirts but I caught it a little late. Still, 18 hours is plenty of time to pick up one of their funny tees for $14.

New shirts $14 this week at Headline Shirts

by Andy on September 11, 2011

hang in there t-shirt



I’m not really sure what constitutes ‘this week’ at Headline Shirts, so you mileage may vary when you click through to the store, but those 3 shirts should be $14 instead of $24 if you’ve seen this within a few days of it being posted.

Headline Shirts is having a one day sale in celebration of Michael Jackson’s birthday! On Aug. 29th their Jackson $20 tee will only be $2! This is a smooth criminal of a deal, so get on it! Enter sale code MOONWALK at checkout to get the discount.

Andy: Thanks for the submission!

headline shirts sale

I think that the $10 sale at Threadless spoils us somewhat, because it makes this sale at Headline Shirts not look as great as it is. I received a tee from Headline Shirts a few weeks ago and I was really impressed by the quality, so to be able to pick up one of their shirts for just $14 is a pretty sweet deal.

3 new* tees from Headline Shirts

by Andy on July 24, 2011

rocky t-shirt



Headline Shirts, your tees may be funny, and they are good quality, buy your mockups are fooling no one.

* They were new when I wrote this post, which as has been mentioned a few times, was more than a week ago because I am currently on holiday.

Travis, who designs and prints movie t-shirt at Found Item Clothing asked me if he could help contribute to the blog by writing a list, and of course I said yes, he’s written loads of great shirt lists (and other posts) over at It Goes to 11 and knows a lot about tees. This list was meant to be 10 items but Travis couldn’t stop himself and ended up with a great list of 26 Captain America t-shirts, now that’s the HYA spirit!

Marvel continues to churn out live-action film adaptions for its A-list characters. Thor debuted (to mixed reviews) in May, followed later in the same month by X-Men: First Class, which effectively rebooted the mutant franchise with a Cold War-flavored prequel that explored the Magneto and Professor X backstory (and subsequent schism).

Both, however, are likely to be overshadowed by Captain America: The First Avenger, which opens later this month (July 22nd, to be exact) and will provide the last bridge in the run up to next summer’s looming behemoth, The Avengers. (That film will pull together the team’s core members — the Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Thor, Nick Fury, and Captain America (natch) — for what promises to be an epic exercise in comic book filmmaking.)

To mark Cap’s big screen arrival, then, we’ve compiled a list of 25 26 topical tees that reference the character in some manner. As with all of our t-shirt compilations, we’ve tried to strike a balance; featured below are new designs, vintage cuts, licensed products, bootlegged spoofs, eBay deadstock, and the like.

These tees, mind you, are ranked in no particular order. Price and link included after the image…

1. The 8-bit meme shows no sign of abating. Pictured here, along with Cap, are three foundational members of The Avengers roster: Thor, Iron Man, Hulk.

Available for $25 at Mighty Fine, an L.A.-based imprint that pairs impeccable production values with clever graphics pulled from film, television, and comicdom.

2. Our second design parodies the Angry Birds phenomenon.

$24.94 at Buy this t-shirt at RedBubble.

3. Avengers assembled, with their leader at the fore. The composition of the team — Captain Marvel, anyone? — suggests that the art was purloined from a mid-’80s issue of the comic, but the tee itself was printed by Junk Food Clothing in a distressed fashion to lend it that vintage quality.

$30 at Buy this t-shirt at 80sTees.

4. An example of the increasingly popular costume print trend, only applied in this instance to a sweatshirt (hide those arms, yo…).

Note the detailing on the hood, which reproduces the eye holes from Cap’s mask and his so-called Eagle ears (but strangely eschews the “A”).

$60 at 80stees.

5. The quote can be attributed to Dwight E. Eisenhower, the celebrated military leader and 34th President of the United States, but the tee’s origins are otherwise murky (a story arc, perhaps?). Anyone with insights on this should chime in below…

Sourced via an image search on Flickr.

6. Dirty Harry’s signature catchphrase, repurposed here in tribute (we think) to Cap’s teenage sidekick, Bucky.

$23.94 at Redbubble.

7. Given that Captain America’s powers were acquired by way of a “super soldier serum,” one thinks this next design smacks of personal hypocrisy. Included here for the throwback art (dig that boombox there on the right) and the wink-wink, nudge-nudge copy on the product page.

$25 at Mighty Fine.

8. On a related note, our next design is a timely reminder that there’s more than one “America.” Hegemony is such a fickle muse…

$20 from the culture jammers at Buy this t-shirt at Headline Shirts.

9. Here’s Cap as the pitchman for Marvel Con 1976, which seems only apropos given the year’s historical significance (t’was America’s bicentennial anniversary). We’d like to think that this was probably a genuine design from back in the day, and reprinted of late to ca$h in on its retro properties.

$27.99 at Superhero Stuff.

10. A bit of self-awareness here, with original art from Kerry Gammill, Thomas Florimonte Jr., and Martin Thomas, noted Marvel contributors all.

Found at Flickr.

11. No list of Captain America tees would be complete without one featuring his arch foil, the Red Skull.

$21.99 at Superhero Stuff.

12. Shrink-wrapped deadstock — a ringer, no less — from 1975…

Listed on eBay and likely sold before this goes to post.

13. Cap’s (fictional) microbrewery reworks the Fosters logo to clever effect (and calls into question his message from shirt #7).

$24.94 at Redbubble.

Cap tip (pun totally intended, booyah): Shirtoid, a growing archive of tees inspired by geek and sci-fi culture.

14. A new design from Mighty Fine (one of several in fact), conceived in homage to the iconic work of the celebrated graphic stylist, Saul Bass.

$25 at Mighty Fine.

15. The iconic Arm & Hammer trademark gets reworked here as a Cap & Thor mash-up.

$24.94 at Redbubble.

16. But where, pretell, are the red boots?

$25 at Mighty Fine.

17. A montage of spandexed superstars, in this case quite literally.

$24.94 at Redbubble.

18. These colors don’t run.

$25 on eBay.

19. A well-executed spoof that acknowledges the United States’ neighbors to the north.

$20 at Buy this t-shirt at Busted Tees.

20. A throwback sketch of our hero, complete with stoic countenance.

$15.95 at Superhero Stuff.

21. Cap’s shield, fractured. Embedded within are pulpy images borrowed from the comic strip.

$25 at Mighty Fine.

22. An artifact from the ’70s, complete with notebook paper. The artwork is thought to be that of Jack Kirby, one of Marvel’s most famed illustrators, writers and editors from the era.

Currently $8.99 on eBay.

23. Nerd alert: this next shirt is an out of print design from a 2007 promotion exclusive to comic book retailers.

Currently $10 on eBay.

24. Distributed at the 2010 Comic Con to build awareness for the film’s panel, this Camp Lehigh tee is also out of print swag with a clever twist.

We can’t decode the reference with total certainity, but Camp Lehigh, according to comic book lore, was the setting for Cap’s first encounter with his sidekick, Bucky. We also believe that its on-screen counterpart houses the experimental research program that turns Steve Rogers (Captain America’s civilian identity) into his titular, alter-ego.

The detailing, along with the olive drab tone, is clearly designed to convey an Army-issued authenticity (and it does so rather effectively).

Back detail:

Currently $24.83 on eBay.

25. This last design, the punningly titled “Fighting Crime Doesn’t Pay,” imagines what might happen if our superheroes lost their livelihoods.

$20 at Buy this t-shirt at Threadless.

26. Lastly, the original cover art from the inaugural issue of Secret Wars, Marvel’s massive crossover event, which places the Captain front and center.

$19.50 at Amazon.

Space Invaders + American Flag = Cool T-shirt

by Andy on September 14, 2010

space invaders t-shirt

You’d be the best dressed person at a Tea Party rally wearing this shirt! Am I the only person that sees a political angle to this shirt, it robably wasn’t Headline Shirts intention, but nevertheless I can be seen that way if you wish… or it can just be a cool tee.

iraq war t-shirt

I don’t want to jump up and down on a political soap box since this is just a tee blog after all, but I think this is a genuinely clever design that looks great on a shirt. In case you can’t read the pic the non-redacted words read “THE TROOPS ARE HAVING A BLAST HERE.” Yet more good work from the Headline Shirts crew.

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

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109

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!

Holiday Sale at Headline Shirts

by Andy on November 23, 2009

featured_holiday_2009

Not sure which holiday they’re thinking of, Thanksgiving or Christmas, but looking at the reindeer ears being worn by the model I’d guess that this sale will be lasting for at least a month. All their tees are $18, which doesn’t sound like a bargain, but I can’t remember how much they were before, so maybe it is. Still, cool tees + reduced price = good times!
