Post image for 604Republic launch ‘The Geekout’ to entice geeks with pictures AND words

604Republic do a great job of snapping up designs and producing geeky tees that don’t patronise or rely on the joke too much, they’re always well designed with quality artwork and I respect them for that rather than going the fast & cheap method of random mashups that rely on an impulse buy rather than real quality.

In an effort to differentiate themselves further from other pop culture inspired t-shirt companies they’ve launched ‘The Geekout‘. This is essentially a blog, but it’s all completely unrelated to t-shirts, just lots of fun and original content that people who like their shirts will probably like. What impresses me about it is that it’s all original stuff, there’s now memes in there and it’s genuinely enjoyable to read, if I could work out a way to add it to my RSS feeds I would, but being a fan of their on Facebook should be enough for now to ensure I don’t miss an update.

Found Item Clothing List 8 Judge Dredd tees

by Andy on October 4, 2012

Post image for Found Item Clothing List 8  Judge Dredd tees

Sure, there are lists out there which are much, much longer, but Found Item Clothing have found some good looking tees for their Judge Dredd list, conveniently released at a time when the remake (reboot? reimagining?) is out at the cinemas. Has anyone seen the film? it looked a lot better than I expected in the trailer but I still haven’t gotten around to seeing it.

The Hare Necessitees: 26 Rabbit T-Shirts

by Travis on April 1, 2012

Easter is drawing closer (Sunday, April 8th, yo) and to mark the moment, our friends at From Hop to Pop have compiled a list of 26 designs themed around rabbits (punningly entitled, The Hare Necessitees).

Some are cute (predictably), some are chic, but others are curious, macabre and a bit further afield. Included in the mix are designs sourced from Threadless, Snorg, Shirtoid, Etsy, and points beyond…

50+ Hunger Games T-shirts

by Andy on March 26, 2012

50+ hunger games t-shirts

The Hunger Games was one of the most anticipated movies of the year with some people describing it as ‘the new Twilight’ (in terms of popularity, and it opened this weekend at cinemas across the US to take in $150+ million in ticket sales, for the 3rd biggest opening weekend of all time(!). I know that the books are aimed at people slightly younger than me (I’ve taken seeing 16-18 year old girls reading it as a sign it may not be a book for me), but the movie certainly looks a lot more appealing than the Twilight series, and I’m definitely going to be checking it out.

I’ve seen and written about quite a few Hunger Games t-shirts in the daily roundup posts over the past few months so I thought I’d put together a nice and epic list of tees for you all to enjoy. With Hunger Games being a fairly new phenomenon I’ve found that a lot of the usual players haven’t yet caught onto it’s popularity, leaving the print-on-demand sites, most notably RedBubble (even though they have been removing copyright infringing designs lately), to lead the way in terms of apparel for fans of the series. I’m sure this situation will change in time and more brands will release Hunger Games t-shirts, and when they do I will try and update this list.

As ever with these lists, they do take quite a lot of time, so if you could be so kind as to share them with your buddies via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any other medium that would be truly fantastic. Enjoy!

If you enjoyed the list please do share it around and let people know about it, or leave a comment, and if you know a good tee that I’ve missed from the list be sure to let me know about it in the comments, or via Twitter or Facebook.

25 of the best t-shirts in the world

The list from FABNOB represents 25 of the best t-shirts that they’ve featured in their store over the past few years. I think it gives a bit of an insight into what Australians like on their tees, space, animals, and sunglasses!

Top 5 t-shirts at RedBubble in February

by Andy on March 7, 2012

bill murray t-shirt

I got an e-mail from RedBubble that showed their top five best sellers in certain categories (t-shirts, posters, prints, that kind of thing) and I thought that it would be interesting to share with you. I don’t know what order they should be in, I just know that these are the top 5 according to RedBubble themselves. Predictably, all the designs have a pop culture reference in them in one way or another, proving that if you want to make money on RedBubble, art is nice but a reference will get you everywhere.

I’m kind of disappointed to see this Bill Murray t-shirt in the top 5, not because I don’t like it (who doesn’t love Bill Murray?) but because it’s just a LiveTrace of a photo and the designer admits that they don’t know who the original photographer is, and I think that if I were the photographer I’d like to at least be asked before one of my images was used on a t-shirt.


If I complained about the Bill Murray shirt then you won’t be surprised to find that I have similar qualms about this Breaking Bad inspired ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ t-shirt since it’s practically the same as the original design from the show with just a bit of distressing to it. It is a pretty cool logo though so I can see why people are buying it.


Pretty sure I’ve featured this “Time-y Wimey” Doctor Who design by Tom Trager before when it was on one of the daily sites, but clearly it has been popular on RedBubble as well.


Very nice Troy & Abed x Calvin & Hobbes mashup by MeganLara. I like this because the mashup isn’t just two random pop cultures items picked because they’re popular, but because they actually make sense together.


‘College of Winterhold’ is a design referencing Game of Thrones, and that’s about as much background as I can give you on it, but college style designs like this are always popular so it’s hardly surprising that this has made it to the top five for February.

I know that I often write about items on HYA that skirt the edges of copyright infringement quite frequently and don’t pull people up for it, but I feel that this case is slightly different to the usual since there haven’t been large enough changes to the images for it to be deemed fair use in my opinion. Let me know in the comments if you think my thoughts have missed the mark.

valentines t-shirts

I’m such a romantic fella that I’m sure Mrs. HYA thinks that it’s Valentine’s Day every day (I let her go large at McDonalds wheneve she wants, chivalry is not dead my friends), but for many others that is not the case. I know this list is too late to save you if you’ve forgotten to get your lady/gentleman a present for today, but it’s still a really cool list from our friends over at Found Item Clothing.

9 Iconic Sweaters Drawn from Pop Culture

by Andy on September 4, 2011

inconic sweaters

Sure, you can’t buy these (at least not yet), but it’s still a really cool illustration showing some iconic sweaters from the worlds of cinema, TV and music. Weezer caught wind of this post by Found Item Clothing and mentioned it on their Facebook page, resulting in an avalanche of traffic for Travis. I’m sure this post on HYA won’t bring him similar internet fame, but hopefully you guys will enjoy checking out these lovely illustrations.

angry birds t-shirts

I’m not an Angry Birds addict, I have a few of the free apps on my phone and I enjoy them, but I don’t obsess too much about getting three stars on every level. Games are meant to be fun, remember?

Tee Gazette has put together a great post listing some fun and clever Angry Birds t-shirts, they released the list back in February so there’s no guarantees that everything will still be in stock, but it is still worth checking out.

{ 1 comment }



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.

Thanks for reading this post and props to Andy for providing us with the forum. List your faves below!

200 T-shirts for Food Lovers

by Andy on February 3, 2010

food t-shirts

If you love food and you love tees, you’re going to love this post. Regular fans of the site will be aware that my love of tees is just about rivalled by my love of food. I wouldn’t describe myself as a foodie, I just like eating good food, and if I’m going to eat something unhealthy (like a burger) then why shouldn’t I try and eat the best one possible to justify all those delicious calories?

How it’s taken me this long to put together a food t-shirt list surprises me; there are hundreds of great tees out there for gourmands and gastronomes, and hopefully you’ll find something in this list you like.

If you were directed to this site from a link, tweet, stumble or something social like that, presumably this will be your first visit to HYA, so thanks for visiting and please look around the rest of the site or sign up for the RSS feed to keep yourself updated. If you liked the list it would be great if you could share it with others (Twitter, Facebook, writing the URL on a cake in frosting). As ever the shirts are not listed in any particular order, so don’t feel that the numbers mean anything, they’re just there so I can keep track of items. This list has been split into 4 pages of 50 tees, because having lots of people loading up 200 pictures at a time would be rather stressful to my server. If you want to jump through or load all the pages ahead of time in different tabs, here are links to the second, third and fourth pages.

Now, gorge yourself on t-shirts, they’re fat-free!

Check out the list

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!).

A big list of t-shirt design contests

by Andy on January 4, 2010


I was going to put together a list like this myself, but fortunately (because it would have been a lot of work) Rude Retro have done the work for me and written a post which lists 42 different t-shirt design contests, how much you’d earn if you won the contest, and how often contest winners are announced. It’s a little sparse in terms of information for some of the tee brands, and I’d like to see a few pictures in the post (as I have the focus of a 12 year old) but nevertheless it’s a good resource for people people on the hunt for a design contest that isn’t Threadless or Design By Humans.

emailmain7

This is likely to be the last deals post of the year because I’m taking Mrs. HYA (we aren’t actually married, but saying ‘my girlfriend’ doesn’t sound quite as fun) to London for the weekend, and tomorrow is looking like it’s going to be a busy one in terms of non-fun non-tee related activity, and then there’s not much point posting next week because of Christmas jollity and friends coming back to the area for the festive season, though if something big comes up then I’ll try and let you know.

So, 20% off at PalmerCash today and tomorrow with the coupon code yeah.

27

It’s sale time at krudmart, with a nigh-on-ridiculous 70% off the older stock, and a rather more sensible though still greatly appreciated 20% off new arrivals (providing you spend more than $75).

224090_10_Tees-Email

The Threadless festive fun continues with $10 tees for the rest of the week (and if you want them to get even cheaper remember that me and Adam from Tee Directory are selling Threadless Gift Certificates on the cheap, also, and this is seriously the first time I’ve realised this, gift certificates could make good gifts for Christmas!).

junky_xmas

I don’t mention Junky Tees very often but they do have some wearable tees that you’d probably enjoy paying 25% less for with the coupon code XMAS.

4260_88400957379_5949442379_1758362_7991355_n

Not holiday related but money off is money off, Dressed By Danni (the halterneck hoodie People) launched a new website recently and if you’re making your first order you can receive a 10% discount with the coupon code FIRST10.

36

30% off sitewide at Karmaloop with the coupon code HAL30, or the code ZUUL30. Is there really any reason why Karmaloop have so many coupons, and not just at this time of year, it feels like they drop a new one every day.

holidaydeals-news

Kind of an odd offer from DBH, instead of going site-wide they’re putting 3 tees a day on sale, but they’re going lower than usual and those three tees can be picked up for $10 a piece. This deal will be running until Christmas Day, so keep checking back to see if any of your favourite designs come up on sale.

Pyknic Clothing - Come in and smell the shirts._1260998380297

Pyknic have got a 20% off sale going on until tomorrow, eat up!

paperroot

Paper Root Clothing:

We’re running our final big sale of the year with some real craziness. 40% everything for the next three days, and that includes our newest sweatshirts we just released.

squishi

I really wish I didn’t have to post this, but unfortunately Squishi’s tees are all on sale for £9.99 each. You’re probably thinking that Squishi’s tees being on a sale would be a good thing, but you’d be wrong, as they’re on sale because Squishi are going to be closing down when all the stock is gone. That sucks, because I was glad there was someone like Squishi around in Britain, but at least they’re closing because the print side of the business is going well, which will hopefully mean that Brit companies have an alternative to outsourcing to America to get their shirts printed.

Strange-Ways_1260999433167

It won’t sound like a sale to our American chums but in British terms this is a sale. Strange Ways have knocked their tees (all three shown above) down to £15, with £1 shipping in the UK, £2 worldwide, try beating that on the high street!

Vig Tees - Funny T-Shirts - Cool Vintage T-Shirts Unique Graphic T-Shirts_1260999669216

As you can see from that image, free shipping ANYWHERE ON EARTH when you buy 2 or more tees from Vig Tees. Sounds good, but the martians are gonna be pissed.

beandip

The e-mail from Bean Dip had the subject “Free Shipping // New Tees”, so I presume they’re offering free shipping. I know, it’s like I’m Sherlock Holmes or something.

nostar

This coupon from No Star will be expiring tomorrow, so hop to it.

wiftees

Get 10% off at wiftees with the coupon code hideyourarms.

seriouseats

My favourite food blog, Serious Eats, have released a list of tees for foodies. Well, I wouldn’t call it a list because it’s only got 11 items on it, to me it’s not really a list unless you question the will to live whilst putting it together and then realising it probably wasn’t worth it since it wasn’t about Star Wars (me? bitter?).

popjunkie

PopJunkie and their weird lapdancing clip-art are going to keep their sale going until the end of the year, so no need to rush then!

eiorakesandstrays

EIO and Rakes & Strays are going to be turning their regular postage into Special Delivery in the UK from now until December 23rd so that y’all will be getting your tees to your loved ones in time for Chrimbo.

MONSTAR-ONLINE-MASTHEAD

Monstar (who seem to mostly be a belt company now) have got all their tees onsale for $10 at th moment with a flat rate of $4 shipping.

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!
