T-shirt news for March 14th

sherlock holmes t-shirt

Fair to say that this Sherlock t-shirt at TeeFury is going to do quite well, they’ve already given it the pancakes symbol.


I can relate to that, right guys? Shirt.Woot.


I think that this might be one of my favourite parody t-shirts for a long time, good work RIPT.


Firefly continues to be popular with tee fans at Qwertee.


Very nice Star Wars t-shirt at Shirt Punch.


Nirvana’s Nevermind meets Friday the 13th in this shirt at Nowhere Bad.


This isn’t a split colour shirt of Pokemon characters at The Yetee, it’s a design available in red or blue, and every order comes with a ‘Yeteemon’ sticker.


OtherTees have a shirt of Lost quotes. I watched the first episode of Alcatraz last night, I liked it, and I liked the way the soundtrack was very similar to Lost.


Hey man, I think you’ve got something in your beard. Stupidhurts.us.


I haven’t seen the film “Blood in blood out – bound by honor” so I have no idea what this shirt at 24tee is about.


This latest shirt from DBH is fairly high on the badass scale.


Another oldie-but-goodie at Tilteed.

SS12 Obey has dropped at Urban Industry.


Girl wears t-shirt saying ‘all the cool girls are lesbians’ on it to school (which ,ay or may not be the astoundingly uncool shirt above), school thinks it might be a little inflammatory and asks her to cover it up, predictable storm of media attention follows.


Tee and Toast might think about cats a bit too much.


These vintage style camera necklaces are available in the Rigu store now.


Glamour Kills logo shirts are now available in a wider range of colours.


25% – 50% off select St. Patrick’s Day Merchandise. Go green with hoodies, tees, accessories and more! Offer ends March 17th.

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.

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.

Daily Tees & News for December 20th

by Andy on December 20, 2011

night of the living dead t-shirt

This TeeFury shirt has everything, horror, a movie parody, 80s games, 8-bit, and lots of criticism in their comments about the head looking pasted on!


Not often you see an orange shirt, usually it only happens when Tilteed pull this design out of the closet.


This Shirt.Woot design is simple but I like it. I’ve never ordered anything from Shirt.Woot, what are their delivery times like? Any chance you’ll be able to wear this before Egg Nog season is over?

Daily Tees & News for November 29th

by Andy on November 29, 2011

night of the living dead t-shirt

Very cool Night of the Living Dead shirt from TeeFury today.


Here’s another Firefly design I don’t understand at Qwertee, and I’m all the more confused because it is a Jurassic Park mashup too.


Song Bird makes another appearance at Tilteed.


Good use of negative space from Stupidhurts.us today.


Nice take on the old proverb from Shirt.Woot.


I guess that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles must be popular again since there is a definite rise in the amount of TMNT shirts I’ve been seeing recently, and I’m not exactly hunting them out. From $10 at RIPT.


I previously featured this shirt a couple of weeks ago when it was on RedBubble, but now it has made it’s way over to The Yetee for the next few days.


I haven’t seen Machete but this parody shirt from OtherTees still makes me laugh.


How depressed does Snuffaluffagus look? 24tee.


As a big Community fan I am very pleased to see this ‘Troy & Abed in the morning’ shirt up at TeeRaiders.


The infinite Swiss army knife makes a return to Loviu.


Nice to see a Zoidberg/Futurama shirt on Shirt Punch today.


I think I’d probably like this latest DBH shirt if it didn’t have the sea turtle on it, but it’s still wearable nevertheless.


Don’t worry, it’s cool to be a nerd now! $11 down from $20 at BustedTees today.


The Cool Hunting gift guide is now live.


I Am The Trend have an excellent post introducing Grave Takers, a new brand from Kyle Crawford of Electric Zombie fame.


RUReppin found some useful articles for t-shirt designers.

threadless coupon code

Daily Tee Roundup September 21st

by Andy on September 21, 2011

nintendo miyamoto t-shirt

I like the idea behind TeeFury‘s offering today, but the artwork isn’t quite there for me. I suppose that’s a harsh critique because they are recreating a TV show logo, but there just seems to be something missing for me.


I get the feeling that this “Stark Industries” t-shirt will look a lot better on a t-shirt rather than in mockup form, as the way that the design has been distressed doesn’t work particularly well in mockup form, but otherwise a solid shirt at RIPT today.


Don’t bother, I’ve already tried, there isn’t really a QR code on this tee from Shirt.Woot, which renders it fairly pointless for me since I think that QR codes are ugly. If you’re in need of blank shirts, or just don’t like designs, in which case I can’t imagine why you’re on this site, the main deal on Woot today is 5 t-shirts of random colour for $7.99 ($12.99 including shipping).


Every time I see Pope Benedict he looks sinister. Pope John Paul II seemed like a good guy, which I feel is pretty much the minimum to be Pope, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard a story about Benedict where I’ve stopped and thought “huh, he seems alright.” £8 today at Qwertee.


Ahhh, TeeMinus24, I may not like your shirt today, but I love the poem you’ve used to describe it:

Sir mix-a-lot like big butts
and he cannot lie
you facebook users can’t deny
when a friend sends you a very funny link
and you want others to know what you think
you click like

OUTSTANDING


I forgot to include Loviu yesterday, whoops! You guys should be on my ass when I make mistakes like that, force me to be a better blogger.

guns 'n' portals parody t-shirt

It’s funny how you get certain kinds of designer naturally gravitate towards different POD sites, parodies tend to end up on RedBubble, cool arty t-shirts go to MySoti, and people that aren’t designers go to Cafepress. (your insults in the comments, please)

Rob posted this re-imagining of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ that I thought was pretty fun:

Welcome to the Center [Johnson/Wheatley Remix]

Welcome to the Center
We got cake ‘n’ tests
We got Companion Cubes you want
And Lemons, you know the rest

We’re the AI that can see
Wherever you may be
If you see the turrets honey
Say goodbye to your knees

Portal… Step into the Portal
Oh you are a t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t,t tease, teeease

Linus LOST t-shirt Peanuts

Very cool mashup pondering whether Linus from Peanuts and Benjamin Linus from LOST are actually the same person. When will we get the answers?!

$10 today at TeeFury

Monsters Inc. Star Wars t-shirt

I think I can add this shirt to the list of unexpected mashups. That said, I haven’t seen Monsters Inc. so perhaps there’s a lot more crossover than I’m aware of.

£8 at Qwertee for the next couple of days.

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.

the ice cream edvard munch t-shirt

I don’t like the style of the illustration, but the concept is too darn good not to post.

enjoy spite

Spitefuls, do any of you remember them as an advertiser from the early days of HYA?

I once mis-pronounced Sprite as Spite in front of one of my friends years ago and it’s been an in-joke ever since, accompanied by shifty eyes and scowls whenever it is mentioned, so when I saw this design I had to post it.

Run DMZ parody t-shirt by LiNK

by Andy on July 6, 2010

north korea t-shirt

After the fun and games of North Korea being in the World Cup, we should probably go back to remembering that most people in North Korea live in very poor conditions, and that there are people out there like LiNK that are trying to help them. They’re a charity, but unlike most charities they also have really cool tees, which puts them right in my wheelhouse.

Costiness=$20 Buy it at LiNK (also available with the classic red & white print)

Taxi Wars by Chucky for Springleap

15-09-09-TAXI WARS-Girl_1

15-09-09-TAXI WARS-Boy_1


Again with the Star Wars referencing tees, will I ever stop?!

It is also a reference to the occurrence of taxi violence in South Africa, which I was previously unaware of, but am currently being shocked learning about.

Bacon by Rizzo Tees

by Andy on November 5, 2009

Bacon-THUMB-LG

bacon480


I think it’s fair to say that this is one of the greatest product pictures ever to grace the pages of HYA!

The t-shirt probably won’t make a lot of sense to non-Americans (and non-Mexicans), but the design is a parody of the logo for a beer called Dos Equis, which has gained popularity (or at least is now recognised, I’m not sure if people actually drink it) due to an TV ad featuring “the most interesting man in the world.” It’s a good ad, and whilst beer is nice, it’s clearly no bacon, so Rizzo Tees have probably improved on the original.

Stay hungry… my friends.

202 Star Wars T-Shirts [Lists]

by Andy on July 16, 2009

star-wars-t-shirts-logo

I think that you’d be pretty hard pressed to find a series of movies that have gained as much of a following as Star Wars, and as you’d expect that has resulted in a huge amount of t-shirts being produced that reference the films in one way or another. So, being HYA, I thought that I’d better make an unnecessarily large list of them. As always, the t-shirts are not ranked, the numbers are merely there as an illustration so that we all know which is which, so being #1 or #202 means nothing. Some of these tees will be pretty recognisable as they’ve been featured on HYA before, and some were also in the 101 Robots List from last month, but if you know of any I haven’t featured then please let me know in the comments. The list has also been split up into pages to ensure swift loading times (my server may probably wouldn’t like people loading 202 pictures at a time).

As you would expect these lists take quite a long time (this one took about 30 hours, seriously), so if you deem it worthy, it would be fantastic if you could promote this article in any way. Twitter, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Digg, your own blog, carve the URL onto a tree, anything!

LiNK – Liberty in North Korea

by Andy on July 15, 2009

men_rundmz_large_1

I like to play a little game when I’m poking around in my Google Analytics to see which Axis of Evil countries I’ve had visits from, and I’ve ‘collected’ almost all of them, but North Korea is noticeably absent, probably because the internet doesn’t really exist in that country, so I was largely resigned to not ever getting a visit from NK since the population is more concerned about starving than cool t-shirts, but I imagine that me posting about LiNK is going to put me on some kind of list, which will mean I never get to light up that part of the map in the stats package, and isn’t that what’s really important here?

No, of course it isn’t. It’s really easy to make jokes about North Korea and Kim Jong Il, but behind every laugh there should be a realisation that the situation most normal North Koreans have to live in is utterly terrible. This is a t-shirt blog, and I know you don’t come here to hear my political soapboxing, so I won’t go on about it too much, but when good t-shirts and a good cause come together then I’m happy to give it some exposure. LiNK are an organisation that….

… address the human rights crisis in North Korea, where people virtually have no freedoms, including the freedom of speech, assembly, religion, movement, and more. LiNK meets with governments and institutions to advocate for the North Korean people while raising awareness through the grassroots movement. We also work directly with refugees through a network of shelters in China and Southeast Asia – protecting, educating and assisting them to eventually find freedom and empowering them to live new lives.

If that seems familiar to you, then you may have seen their leader Mike Kim on the Daily Show recently promoting his book and explaining what LiNK do.* The t-shirts probably aren’t a major part of their strategy for helping the people of NK, but I assume their purpose is to raise awareness of their cause and to also help fund it. The tee above is my favourite of the bunch, but its almost jokey attitude isn’t representative of the rest of the range, which run the gamut from the propaganda style you expect of the North Koreans to a relatively simple text tee, but they’re certainly all very wearable.

Costiness=$20 Available from the LiNK America Store

*My bad, Mike Kim isn’t actually affiliated with LiNK, he has his own organisation called Crossing Borders, they’re just selling his book in their store, and have co-sponsored some events in the past, but at separate organisations.

il_430xn78778703

Expect to see more of Fifty Seven Thirty Three, you want to know why? Because their tees look awesome (they aren’t the cheapest out there, mind you). This tee isn’t actually particularly representative of their style, they aren’t exactly a laffer of a brand, but this design certainly did raise a smile.

Oh, it would appear that I’ve mentioned them before.

Costiness=$40 Available from 57-33’s Etsy Store
