Post image for Zombie Apocalypse? No, it’s just election season. [Submitted]

Zombies are not the only heartless, soulless beings around. When we set out to design shirts for the political season, we first thought of One LessTM Democrat and One Less Republican tees. But really, we’re sick of them all. Our brand message is “Don’t let the bastards get you down!” and is based on taking out life’s nemeses, one shirt at a time. With that in mind, we soon realized it’s all politicians and their BS political banter that’s really the issue. That’s how the idea of “One Less Politician, The True Walking Dead”, came about. With our undead elephant and donkey representing both major parties, this is a tee that everyone can get behind, regardless of political beliefs. We also designed our “One Less Politician, One Stronger Nation” shirt because we think that if our representatives were more about public service and less about being politicians, we would have a stronger nation. Our tees are printed on 100% combed, ring-spun cotton JS Apparel tees and are super soft.

Andy: I was thinking to myself, ‘oh, this submission will be a bit of fun’… oh, well, at least this post won’t cause any controversy.

Post image for Miley Cyrus helps Rock the Vote in a confusing t-shirt


I think it’s pretty cool to see Miley Cyrus getting involved with the ‘Rock the Vote’ campaign, even if the majority of her fans probably won’t be able to vote until the next election cycle, however, I am a bit confused by her t-shirt. I know what it means, that they’re never going to back down from those known as ‘they’, but it doesn’t read particularly well, does it? Maybe if there wasn’t a strike-through on ‘back down’ and it had ‘never, never, never’ scrawled across the main text it would have worked a bit better?

Anyway, my quibbles aside, if she gets more young people interested in politics that can only be a good thing as far as I see it, and not just becuase young folks probably won’t vote for Mittens.

Do you still wear Obama shirts?

by Andy on January 17, 2011

obama t-shirt

I pulled the above shirt (from Ban T-Shirts) from one of the many stacks of tees in my bedroom, and whilst this one is fairly subtle as far as Obama shirts go, it did get me thinking, do people still buy and wear Obama shirts?

As ever, I’ll make the usual disclaimer that a t-shirt blog isn’t really the best forum for discussion about politics or political figures, but it is a damn good place to talk about political t-shirts!

It’s fair to say that Obama’s first term in office hasn’t gone quite as he has planned, and that a lot of the people that were supporting him in the run-up to the election in 2008 (and bought t-shirts) have become somewhat disillusioned, so what has happened to all of those tees, do you see people wearing them out on the street? Are people still creating and buying Obama shirts?

Breakfast at the Capitol

by Andy on February 19, 2010

breakfast on capitol hill t-shirt

You know what’s stupid about the Capitol Building?

Some of you may be expecting a rant about politicis here, but fear not, my concerns are far more pressing…. you aren’t allowed to take any kind of food or drink into the building, not even into the part where you go to get your tickets for the tour. This wasn’t so bad for me and my brother turning up in the morning, though I did have to throw a perfectly good apple (yes, you can’t take an apple in there, presumably an apple is a major security threat) into a huge bin filled with perfectly good food. It was pretty bad for the group of school-kids who went in before us though, who had to dump the contents of their lunchboxes into the previously mentioned bin. Ridiculous!

Good tee though, and for a limited time you get a free Washington, DC t-shirt with it, which I can only presume would be this shirt. If they run out of that shirt to offer you as a freebie, you’ll receive a $10 off coupon for your next order.

HOPE is Fading Fast by Freshjive

312_gallery_image_2131090869

I’m leaving my soapbox in the cupboard (because really, what’s the point in anyone else talking about politics on the internet?), and just going to say that this is a pretty stunning design… though it would be nice if the ink from the Hope image ran down naturally rather than cutting off in a straight line. Actually now that I’ve seen that I’m going off this tee a bit.

Shirt will be going on pre-order on Black Friday [via BoingBoing]

Destroy Fox News by Print Liberation

by Andy on November 13, 2009

fox_news1

Here’s the thing, I’m British, and even I hate Fox News. In fairness to them, whilst they are astoundingly biased, they do cover stories, unlike CNN, which I tried to watch when I was in America, but when I realised that they covered about 3 stories an hour I had to move on and just read the BBC online.

William Henry Harrison 'Tippecanoe and Tyler Too' 1840 Presidential Campaign T-Shirt - Retro Campaigns_1257716023442

Abraham Lincoln 1860 Presidential Campaign T-Shirt - Retro Campaigns_1257716008583

Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt 'Bull Moose Party' 1912 Presidential Campaign T-Shirt - Retro Campaigns_1257715986726


I still like the concept of Retro Campaigns, creating shirts based on old political campaigns from America’s past. Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and William Henry Harrison receive the treatment this time around. I think that I prefer the more modern poliical characters simply because we all know that Abe and Teddy didn’t use t-shirts to promote their campaigns, so whilst these tees are using graphics that were actually used (right?), they somehow feel less credible than the designs that were used as t-shirts, though that may partially be because there have been a lot of iconic t-shirt designs that have come from US political campaigns in the 60s and 70s.

The Fineprint Chicago Blajokevich Tee_1254143343830

Every time I see Rod Blagojevich on TV I know he’s going to do something that makes me cringe, so I kinda hope that he gets sent to jail for trying to sell a senate seat just so I don’t have to see his face for a few years, oh, and because a Governor trying to sell a Senate seat is utterly despicable and insulting to the entire electorate. Basically, despite not being American and having never visited Chicago, I hate Rod Blagojevich.

Barack Obama T-shirt by Thriving Ink

Thriving Ink, who spend most of their time producing some really rather beautiful illustrative tees, have collaborated with AJ Dimarucot to produce a line of t-shirts all about Barack Obama that they’ve called ‘Hope is Dope’. Its amazing just how many brands are producing designs and lines about the man who has Hope, I wonder if people will still proudly be wearing them in a years time, or perhaps Diesel Sweeties have hit the nail on the head?

Terrorist Fist-Jab by Cotton Factory

by Andy on July 2, 2008

yhst-37025177803217_2006_20526487.gif

Again, I don’t want to enforce my personal politics/hatred of Fox News on you guys, but seriously, who the hell decided that they could make a news story out of calling that teensy-tiny fist bump a terrorist fist-jab?

And yes, I know that I’m way behind the actual event on this one, but sometimes it takes a little while for the tee world to catch up with the news world.

KosherHam

I don’t want to force my politics on anyone, but when I found out that John McCain pandered to voters by saying he condemned any remarks that were “anti-anything” I lost rather a lot of respect for him, so I got off the fence went for Obama, which is lucky for me, because there are loads more Obama tees out there than McCain ones. Although McCain’s supporters probably don’t do t-shirts, they probably knit wool sweaters for him (I’m saying he’s old, that seems to get laughs).

KosherHam

I can’t work out where “Barack’n the free world” was first used… by which I of course mean I googled it and didn’t immediately find it, then got bored and ate some strawberries (’tis the season!). I guess it doesn’t really matter where the phrase came from (a Neil Young song, btw), if you wear it people know who is going to be getting your vote in November, and it doing that in a good looking way is just the cherry on top of the political sundae.

KosherHam

Quality is impressive. The stock tee is American Apparel, which most of you guys will have an experience of, I can’t tell you what this particular one feels like because whilst I have lost a few pounds (okay, about 50) over the past 18 months, I can’t quite squeeze myself into a girls small tee yet… or presumably ever. The print is really soft, its so soft I actually had to double check that it wasn’t flock print, so I think its fair to say that KosherHam have got printing down pretty well.

Obama ’08 (Audacity) by Enstrumental

Barack Obama t-shirt by Enstrumental

I haven’t quite decided who should get the ever-so-powerful HYA Presidential endorsement, but I do like this tee, and as the pic above shows, Barack Obama certainly doesn’t disapprove!

Enstrumental released their OBAMA shirt in March 2007 (before many hopped on the OBAMA tee bandwagon) and has given 8% of the proceeds of the many shirts sold to the OBAMA campaign.

Enstrumental have got a great selection of other tees too, so it might be worth clicking through even if you’re still a bit pissed that the guy with the best hair isn’t in the race anymore.Costiness=$35 Link
