the ultimate guide to t-shirts

You Design it have taken it upon themselves to create an attractive and authoritative guide to t-shirts, covering their history, styles, weights, and printing techniques. I’m sure some of it will be old hat to some of you, but it’s still very nicely put together and well worth taking a look.

I’m sure that you guys will not be shocked to hear that I think this is a cool t-shirt at Chop Shop. 8-bit style shirts are really popular at the moment and it’s a trend that I’m happy to see. Here’s how Chop Shop describe the tee:

Help Georgio navigate his way toward Liberty while avoiding all of the King’s royal cannonballs. Use the axe to deflect the cannonballs or simply chop down the cherry tree… but if anyone asks, tell them the other George did it.


Two new silhouette shirts from Chop Shop

Chop Shop just keep finding new things to turn into silhouettes, don’t they?

This time around they’re giving us the hairstyles of 101 iconic women from past and present, and 31 rockers whose careers peaked in the 80s and you probably last saw on a reality show or VH1.

mount rapmore t-shirt

Am I the only one who feels vaguely offended by the gesture that attractive lady is making?

We all know I am no authority on hip hop or rap, but if I like a tee then I like a tee, and this design from Headline Shirts is pretty cool.

Costiness=$20 Buy it at Headline Shirts

*OMG it’s 2 Pac’s birthday today (well, it would be), and you can get this shirt for $2, yeah, two dollars, by using the coupon code 2PAC at the checkout, CHEAPNESS!*


Vicious History’s Spring Cleaning Sale

vicious history sale

$13 tees and $27 hoodies from a quality brand, can’t say fairer than that.

Vicious History



I remember being distinctly underwhelmed when my friend and I drove past the La Brea tar Pits, I was probably expecting too much, like a couple of dinosaurs that had been engaged in some kind of epic battle to the death frozen in time by the gooey black stuff.

Costiness=$22 Available from the McSweeney’s Store



If you’re wanting to get a jump on next year’s Halloween festivities (I’ve missed out on Halloween for the past 4 years because of my French adventures) then there would be few better ways to do it than with a tee or two from Akumu Ink. The latest release is the single tee you can see in the pics, dubbed ‘The Ripper’, which it’s probably fair to assume is a design based upon famed serial killer Jack The Ripper. If you like the Akumu style then it’s pretty likely that you’re going to like this design, they have a look tha works and it’s no surprise that they stick to it, especially as there aren’t any other companies out there that I can think of with a similar style.

Also added to their store recently are some package options. You get to pick the tees and/or hoodie in each of the three package options (one package does feature a ‘mystery’ tee), and receive a discount that equates to 10-15% off buying the items individually.


Hirsute History, for people that like hair

by Andy on August 17, 2009


Shirts featuring the hair of famous people. Not like ‘Britney’ famous, more like important. Well, mostly. Oh, and some beards too.

And that’s what Hirsute History do. I like the way that the site (yet another offshoot from Amorphia Apparel) has a concept and sticks to it, there’s no deviation from one design to the next, and having historical figures rather than pop culture icons from today is a plus too, I’d rather have Nikola Tesla on my chest than Paris Hilton (so to speak). You can also get 10% off your order by using the coupon code HIRSUTE between now and August 22nd.

U.S. History Cheat by Snorg Tees

by Andy on February 5, 2008

U.S. History Cheat t-shirt by Snorg Tees

It’s not often that I give Snorg a lot of love around here, but credit where its due, this tee is a really great idea and I’m surprised I haven’t seen it done before.Obviously, I wouldn’t recommend wearing this tee if you were actually going to be taking an American history test, there are subtler forms of cheating available for those of you that are morally challenged, but conceptually I still really like this tee, and the fact that it’s accurate is cool too, although part of me thinks it would be even funnier if there were several intentional errors in the design, just to mess with people’s heads.
