Daily Tees & News for December 12th

by Andy on December 12, 2011

breaking bad t-shirt

Everyone have a good weekend? I did until last night when I had a nasty fall during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope. Fell on my front, my jakcet rode up and my stomach turned into ‘brakes’, my tummy new resembles those crisps that are meant to look like streaky bacon, oh, the pain!

I really want to get into Breaking Bad, but after a couple of episodes of the first season it was just too depressing so I stopped, I will probably try again though. Shirt is $10 today at TeeFury.


I haven’t read Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, but apparently this Qwertee shirt has something to do with it.


Apparently this RIPT tee is something to do with a cartoon show that may or may not be on TV anymore but to be completely honest I don’t recognise it and no one mentions it in the RIPT comments, your suggestions please!


And what band is this Owl at Shirt.Woot listening to? The Who, of course!


Pretty rare that you see a Gremlins tee, but this is a lovely example of the breed at The Yetee.


Seinfeld Festivus shirt over at TeeMinus24. Funny how you don’t hear much about Christmukkah nowadays.


I haven’t seen Donnie Darko so this shirt at OtherTees may or may not be genius.


You want an Angry Birds t-shirt? 24tee have got it!


A melting Portal companion cube greets us today at TeeRaiders.


I really like this Star Wars design at Graphic Lab, but I do question the black on dark grey colour choice. Then again, it would probably look a bit naff if it was on a white t-shirt.


Ahhh, one of my favourite Loviu designs.


Pikachu gets an outing on this Shirt Punch design.


Tshirt Contest ensure that we have at least one Doctor Who t-shirt today, thank goodness.


Very nice shirt of the day at DBH.

BustedTees deal of the next couple of days is their attachment that you put on a beer to make it look like you have a mustache. Presumably it’s like those little win trinkets people buy so that you know who’s wine glass belongs to who, except for beer. $8.99 for 6 instead of $11.99


Expansion II comes out to play once again at Tilteed.


Tee Mashups is a site I found out about at the weekend that offers designs on sale for 48 hours. Today and tomorrow they have a Dick Tracey vs Carmen Sandiego shirt available.


Megan Fox may be a very attractive lady, and that’s a pretty cool sweatshirt, but I will never understand why people wear stuff that looks like it has spent a few months with a bunch of moths.


Wrongwroks have added hiking boots to their product range, of course.


There’s 25% off everything today only at Loserkids.


Mashable have a good resource for increasing Facebook engagement through custom tabs that should be useful for store owners.


Yes No Maybe have a few coupon codes available. The more you spend the more you save, all the way up to 20% off.


Original Music Shirt, who I still think took a lot of inspiration from Threadless with their redesign, are offering free global shipping with the coupon code ILIKETOMOVEIT if you spend 25€+ before December 14th.


Springleap are holding a contest that is only open to previous design winners, which should make for some pretty tasty entries.


OMUNKY are offering 18% off from now until December 19th with the coupon code 18off2011.


PalmerCash are now selling shirts, the kind with buttons!


The Quiet Life are running a holiday promo, if you spend $100 or more they’ll give you a free duffel bag that they usuall charge $40 for. It would be perfect for carrying around your gym gear since that will inevitably be your new years resolution. Go to the gym more dammit Andy! They’ve also restocked their hat selection.


Terratag are knocking 10% off all orders. No coupon necessary, the discount will automatically be applied at the checkout.


Whilst I do like the idea of ‘ugly’ Christmas tees I think that this Kickstarter project might be a bit too late, it won’t be funded (if it reaches 100%) until January 9th, and then when will you receive the shirt? I’m pretty sure everyone’s Christmas cheer will be long gone by that time.

original music shirt

Earlier today Original Music Shirt (aka OMS) sent out an e-mail saying that they had redesigned their website. I checked it out and as the page loaded I thought everything looked good very clean and easy to navigate. After a few seconds I realised why I liked it, they appeared to have taken a lot of design cues from Threadless.


I’m no fool and I’m not looking to create drama where it doesn’t exist, but there is no denying that there are some similar aspects to both sites, and as the Threadless design is much older, it all points to OMS being inspired by Threadless at a few turns. The thing that annoys me about it is that you expect an established business like OMS to be above these kind of shenanigans. It is of course possible that OMS used an outside developer for their new website that borrowed a few ideas from Threadless and OMS aren’t aware of this at all but that does seem to be a fairly unlikely. Here’s a few side-by side shots:



The search areas & footers are similar, but in web design the position and style of search areas is often similar, so you could almost let them get away with that, but the navigation bar really gives the game away as far as I’m concerned. Again, there are items on navigation bars that have to be there and are there on every shop, but this redesign just happens to pick the same font as Threadless and put those items in the same order (considering the ‘club’ and ‘community’ can be used interchangeably in this context, and the OMS doesn’t have a design competition so they have no need for a ‘participate’ page)? That doesn’t seem particularly likely to me.

Another little ‘similarity’ is that OMS now have ‘shop guys’ & ‘shop girly’ rather than mens/womens, and Threadless also use guys/girly. It’s possible that OMS were using that before the redesign, but it’s worth noting.

I feel a bit like Glenn Beck as I write this post, being the guy that just happens to notice a few things between a couple of websites, and hopefully I haven’t made any mistakes in my comparisons and suppositions because I have no reason to be negative towards Original Music Shirt, I like their designs and like their style, but I saw their new site and couldn’t help but notice the similarities. I realise that Threadless do not own many of the things I have pointed out, such as the font they use in the navigation bar, the colour blue, rounded corners on buttons, and the style of their footer, but just because they don’t own those things exclusively doesn’t mean it is okay for that design to be copied by other people.

As you might expect, I’d really appreciate your comments on this post, and I will update you if I hear anything from either Threadless or Original Music Shirt.
