I heart NY

Post image for Fidel Castro leaves New York City… with a fake “I [heart] NY” t-shirt

I spotted this photo on the fantastic Retronaut and couldn’t help but notice that Fidel Castro was being given what appears to be a fake ‘I [heart] NY’ shirt.

hayden panettiere wearing I Uzi LA t-shirt

This has been one of my favourite ‘I heart’ style tees ever since I saw it about a year ago. The problem was that I had no clue where you could buy it. I slipped the tee into the 109 I heart NY style tees post at #25 and fortunately a retailer that sells it spotted the tees. It’s not cheap, but it’s been worn by pint-sized hottie Hayden Panettiere so that clear justifies any premium pricing. For complete reference, I Uzi LA is by Future Heretics, which is a pretty great name for a brand

I Heart Realism by huntingbears

by Andy on January 10, 2010


I’d seen this tee around a few times, but it was jsut a picture and there was no store associated with it, so I wasn’t able to add it to the epic (and not particularly popular) list of 109 I heart NY style tees, but I’m glad I’ve tracked it down because it’s one of my favourite examples of the genre.

Tourist! by GUS for laFraise

by Andy on January 9, 2010


During my 4 visits to New York last year I did feel somewhat like a tourist, which is fair enough because I was, though by the 2nd/3rd visit I was able to get around without looking at my guidebook much, so I’d like to think I blended in a bit, but do you know who look like tourists? British people.

It’s ridiculous, we stick out like sore thumbs, and it makes us look bad as a nation because they always seemed to be complaining or doing something dumb and touristy. There’s nothing wrong with being a tourist, and I don’t expect people to get off a plane and become a local, but at least try not to be so obviously confused by your surroundings. And yes, if you’re from a different country you can probably substitute the word British for your own nationality and have the same feelings.*

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!
