lord of the rings



I’m sure that cynical Andy should be complaining that there weren’t any motorbikes in Lord of the Rings in the same way that I point out how lots of mashups make no sense, but I’m willing to let it slide when the design looks this good. Really wearable design too, there’s a danger with Lord of the Rings that you might look a bit too geeky, but I think anyone could get away with wearing this and people would be able to enjoy it on different levels. Ian has gone with waterbased discharge ink on an American Apparel black trib-blend shirt, so you know this is going to be ridiculously comfy.

Costiness=$22 Buy it from Ian’s store

I’m going to be starting a new weekly regular feature on the site taking a look at the top 10 most popular t-shirts on RedBubble each week. I’m aiming to post this every Friday but there may be a couple of days each way depending on my schedule (because we all know I’m a very busy and important man). Expect to see lots of TV and movie references that I won’t understand and will be berated about in the comments.


1. “I’m not saying I’m Batman…” by kevinlartees – It’s a fun idea, but the execution isn’t perfect, the text changes size a lot and the gaps between each line (I’ve forgotten the technical term for that) are a bit uneven as well. This is proof that the art doesn’t have to be perfect to create a popular shirt at RedBubble.


2. “Just As Sane As I Am” by MeganLara – a gorgeous art nouveau style Harry Potter shirt from Megan Lara.


3. “DOTA 2 Heroes” by MoazTheFreeman – it shows just how much I am out of the gaming world now that I didn’t even know Defence of the Ancients was a thing, and that DOTA2 was the second version of it.


4. “Sherlock Comic by harebrained – very nice Sherlock Holmes style comic cover.


5. “On sugar mountain’…” by Valerie Anne Kelly – you know how I often say “different strokes for different folks? This is definitely one of those times, I certainly wouldn’t wear it, but we all know someone, probably an aunt, that would wear it, and love it.


6. “Slayer of the Vampyres” by Tom Trager – Buffy meets Saul Bass with excellent effect.


7. “Do You Hear The People Sing?” by TheGhostParty – if there was ever going to be a Les Mis shirt in the top 10 now would be the time for it.


8. “Good Game, I Hate You, Good Game.” by Lindsay Fulda – I have no idea what this is or why it’s popular, but I assume that it has nothing to do with the BBCs octogenarian presenter Bruce Forsyth, enlightenment in the comments, please!


9. “You Can’t Take The Sky From Me” by JenSnow – we’ve seen this quote from Serenity before in different ways, but I really like the type works on this design.


10. “Gandalf’s Eagle Transport Service” by Tom Trager – Tom Trager with two items in the top 10 this week, this time with a parody ad of Gandalf’s Eagle Transport.

Post image for Hobbits, Lord Humungus and a lovely pear just $12 this week at Tshirt Laundry



As part of their site-wide sale this week at Tshirt Laundry these three new shirts are just $12.

Am I the only person that thinks the pear shirt is a nice design, but takes on a whole new meaning with that placement and being worn by a lady?

tshirt laundry t-shirts




Decent bunch of shirts from Tshirt Laundry this week. I like the Lord of the Rings x Monopoly mashup, it’s a pretty funny premise. They’re also running a sale for ‘Geek Pride Day’ until May 28th which has seen all their tees drop to $12 each.

T-shirt News for March 28th

by Andy on March 28, 2012

coffee t-shirts

I love this coffee cup character up at TeeFury today, it would be cool to see that as a vinyl toy.


Who doesn’t love a BLT? Well, I don’t since uncooked tomato weirds me out a bit (which in itself is odd since I will eat pretty much anything), the the rest of this design at Shirt.Woot is fine by me.


RIPT have a Dhalsim Street Fighter shirt up today, unfortunately the concept was done on Teefury last month and the commenters aren’t holding back on saying which they prefer.

Daily T-shirt News Roundup for January 13th

by Andy on January 13, 2012

exorcist rolling stones t-shirt

This shirt at TeeFury is a mashup of The Exorcist and the Rolling Stones, which is pretty appropriate for Friday the 13th, it’s almost like they planned it!


I’m fairly sure that I’ve seen this Firefly shirt somewhere else before it docked at Qwertee.


Shirt.Woot have the kind of shirt I would put on a level with Three Wolf Moon, except with no ironic redemption.


RIPT are getting into the Hobbit spirit a little early.


TeeMinus24 must have been watching LOTR too.


This 24tee shirt doesn’t really work with my British mind.


One for the Star Wars fans at TeeRaiders.


An Ozzy Osbourne/Iron Man parody for you today at Shirt Punch.


Now that’s an angry bear at DBH (who I notice have made a few little tweaks to their homepage).


Loviu are doing mystery tees for 7€ from now until the end of the month. The text says “order 3 mystery tees only 7 euros each” but I think that three is the maximum for one transaction, not the minimum, as I was able to add one tee to the cart when I gave it at go.


BustedTees have got their Hunger Games t-shirt on sale for $11.99 instead of $20 for the rest of today.


Hey look, Tilteed, are selling ‘Expansion II’ again.


Details of Graniph‘s design award have been announced. Submissions open on February 1st, and the top prize is 500,000 yen, which is probably a lot of money.


Graniph are also having their winter sale at the moment, loads of goods marked down by as much as 50%.


Turista Clothing have a 35% off coupon code at the moment, HPY2012, that will be live until January 15th. They also have some new tees you many want to check out. [via TTG]


Kid Robot have a decent sale on, with 50% off all of last year’s designs.


The first of Obey’s Spring 2012 line has dropped at Urban Industry.


I think that only a mother could love these (recently restocked) barcode hoodies at Methods NYC, but the coupon code of BRICK getting you 25% off your order on anything in the store until tomorrow at midnight (EST, presumably) is a lot more tantalising.


Taken Clothing have got everything on sale for $20 until January 17th. I’m not sure how much things cost before the sale, but presumably it was more than $20.


Get 13% off your order at Trust No One with the coupon code UNLUCKYFORSOME until 9am tomorrow UK time.


Own the Night Clothing have a sale on until midnight UK time. [via TTG]


Complex list the 50 greatest pop culture reference in streetwear.


Tee Gazette have an interview with Twin SRPNT.


20% off everything at Sin Star Clothing with the coupon code 13 today only.


Oh No Berlin now have a brand store at A Better Tomorrow.


Dephect’s January sale is still going on with t-shirts as low as £9.99.


Antique Clothing also have a sale going on with item as low as £15. [via TTG]


HYA tri-blend tees in the HYA store are £13 for today only, a saving of £3, limited quantities available pick them up before they sell out.


There’s up to 35% off in the big sale at Human Empire.

Daily Tees & News Roundup for November 18th

USB Flash t-shirt

Sorry that the roundup is so late today, I had to go and pick up my cousin at the airport, and the airport is kind of far away.

Does anyone really like USB flash drives enough to buy this shirt from TeeFury.

Daily Tees & News for November 6th

by Andy on November 6, 2011

doctor who t-shirt

I don’t think I’ve ever seen more Doctor Who references on one shirt, you win, TeeFury!


Qwertee have a Lord Of The Rings t-shirt for us today.


Shirt.Woot have a Pacman design that has better graphics than the original Pacman.


RIPT ensure that the Doctor Who:Star Wars balance is maintained.


24tee also share my love of cheap noodles. That said, when you get real ramen it is pretty amazing.


Ahhh, Loviu, the old switcheroo!


Really, really nice Boardwalk Empire x Monopoly mashup today at Shirt Punch.


Some brand I’ve never heard of called Venus Falls released their Fall collection recently and it looks pretty nice.


Rob Dobi has redesigned a few of his old Fullbleed shirts, including the one above.


410BC released a large collection of new tees last week, though the Mintees crowd have noticed that a lot of the designs are simply public domain images on shirts, which just doesn’t feel like the 410BC way to me.


Everything has got 20% off at Outcry Apparel for a limited time. How limited? I have no idea.


One ad space has become available on HYA at the price of $19 per month. All other spaces are currently sold out but there will be some other opportunities opening up this month so get on the waiting list if you are interested.


WinkyBoo have got a massive 50% off coupon code live at the moment. Use code WINKYMUSIC to receive the discount.

Daily Tee Roundup October 6th

by Andy on October 6, 2011

Star Trek red shirts warning

Fun shirt from Ian Leino at TeeFury, but the name of the design “he’s dead, Jim” only conjures up a vision of one man who passed away today, and he’s not called Jim.


Nowhere Bad dig further and bring a design out of the Star Wars mine and out into the fresh air.


I don’t really get why the tanks are in halftone but Gandalf is a solid colour? Nice try, Stupidhurts.us, but it’s just not working for me today.


I’m sure that there is a lot of people that will like today’s Shirt.Woot design, but I can’t count myself amongst them.


I must admit that I’ve never read ‘A light in the Attic’ and thus the reference is somewhat lost on me, but that typework looks awfully awkward to me, which is a pity because the graphic itself is really well done.


I think that The Yetee need an award for the most niche shirt of the week. Locane is a fictional poison used in The Princess Bride by William Goldman.


Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous t-shirt from Loviu today, and a nice little nod to Beatles fans in there too.


This is the insaneetee deal at Uneetee today, dropping from $26.99 to $14.99, pretty sweet deal.


I had high hopes for 24tee after first showing them yesterday, but even with their hearts in the right place (as I’m sure they are), I find the notion of a Steve Jobs t-shirt to be in poor taste and I assume I’m not alone. That said, I am quite glad that I can feature him on the blog in some way, since I still have a Performa 450 in the attic (turns out my parents were ahead of their time), and I am inseparable from my iPhone.

lord of the rings disney t-shirt

Is The Yetee a new site? I haven’t heard anything about them but saw this shirt on Reddit, where it was pointed out that having “The Happiest Place in Middle Earth” written underneath the Disney-esque logo would have made more sense than ‘one does not simply walk in’ and I would tend to agree with them.

$11 today at The Yetee.

lord of the rings t-shirt

I have a bit more Threadless related news to tell you about in a few minutes, but I couldn’t let this tee go past without mention. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but that Subway (or Underground, as I should be calling it) map actually maps out parts of Middle-Earth, the setting for the Lord of the Rings series of books/movies. It’s been making waves on many a blog, so I think it’s accepted that this is one of the most “hey that’s a cool idea and it looks good too” tees Threadless have put out in a while.

You can now pay for items at Threadless with PayPal, which I think a lot of people were requesting so that’s cool. In celebration they released a couple of coupon codes, which may or may not require you to use PayPal for them to work, I’m not entirely sure. Use code YayPal5 to get $5 off $30 or YayPal10 to get $10 off $50, which is actually a pretty sweet coupon.

Costiness=$18 Buy it at Threadless (already sold out in larger sizes)
