A Long List of T-Shirt Sales & Deals… again

[This picture is just to prove that I do leave the house sometimes and don’t just blog about clothes] You’d have thought that Black Friday would have been the high point for sales, but I think my inbox has actually been seeing more hot sale action than ever before over the past week or so. If I wrote a post about every deal I think I’d still be writing about them after Christmas, so instead of that, what follows will be an orgy of savings.

  • Random Shirts: They’ve marked all their regular tees down to $8 until Christmas, I think the discount gets added to your cart once you start the checkout process.
  • The Cotton Factory: This deal ends tonight at midnight (unknown timezone), use the coupon code REVENGEOFHOLIDAZE and you’ll get 10% off your order
  • Urban Retro: Up until Wednesday December 18th you can get 20% off clothes at UR by using the coupon code FASHION20.
  • XLarge: Get 10% off at XLarge by using the coupon code iheartxl. Unknown end date, all their hats seem to be 20% off at the moment too.
  • Spicy Brown: If you’re in the mood for some Japanese-inspired designs and want 25% off them, use the coupon code holiday08 before December 19th and you’ll get just that. Also, free shipping on order over $75.
  • Bean Dip Clothing: The BD crew are offering free shipping, presumably until Christmas, as it is their holiday offer.
  • Social-T: A t-shirt subscription makes a pretty good gift (a random, limited edition tee sent to you every month), and if you sign up now you get a free trucker hat.
  • ThinkGeek: This one is more than just tees, but TG are pretty much a one-stop shop for buying gifts for the special nerd in your life. Up until December 14th, you can get free shipping (in the continental U.S.) when you spend more than $40, by using the coupon code SHIPFREE.
  • Amorphia / Wear Science! / Teach the Controversy: Get 20% off at all three of those stores by using the coupon code AMORPHIAROCKS before December 15th. There’s also a few new designs at Science! that you’ll want to check out.
  • PleaseDressMe x BustedTees: These two have teamed up to offer you a selection of Busted Tees, uhh, tees for the low, low price of $7.77, which is $4.23 cheaper than the tees on their own sale page!
  • 80s Purple: They’ve knocked 30% off their entire range of Obey Clothing, get in the action by using the coupon code OBEYME before December 15th.
  • Mustache & Friends: Get 20% off your order in their mustache-based store by using the coupon code apmustache, I’m not sure when this one ends.
  • Oath Threadline: Get 20% off your order at OT by using the coupon code apoath, I’d tell you when this deal ends, but I simply do not know.
  • Threadless: In addition to their current sale of $5, $10 and $15 tees, you’ll get free shipping ($7 off for international customers) when you spend $50 or more.
  • The Urban Shop: They have reduced the prices of everything in stock, with discounts of up to 60%.
  • Methods NYC: They’ve got a sale going on with up to 50% off some items.
  • AMP Street: There’s 25% off everything in store at this European streetwear store.
  • AAITSKI: They have a sliding sale, the more you buy, the more you save. Buy 1 tee and get 10% off, buy 2 and get 20% off, buy 3 or more and you’ll receive 30% off the cost of your tees.

    Review: 20 Waves by Social-T

    by Andy on May 6, 2008

    Clearly Social-T are trying to help me impress the ladies in my life (free t-shirts=love, right?), seeing as they’ve sent over this girlie sized version of their April ‘issue’. Since I covered their subscription model fairly extensively in my last review of Social-T it seems a little silly to go over the entire process again just a week later, so if you missed the first review then check out this post and you’ll find out what sets Social-T apart from other t-shirt companies.

    Most of Social-Ts shirts have a social message or issue attached to them, and that is the case with this design. This one takes a look at over-development and pollution in coastal areas, and how that is threatening surf spots. I know, there are bigger things to worry about than where people can go surfing (of course, I don’t surf, so I would say that), but I’m sure that if I lived in a place where the water was rather more inviting then I’d be all over this like a rash, a rash that I would have presumably got from pollution in the water whilst surfing. The 20 spots are listed on the back of the tee in a highly, highly, stylised font, so it doesn’t look like a bands tour t-shirt, which is always a danger when you’re putting a list on the back of a tee.

    The quality level, as you’d expect if you read the last review, is pretty damned good. The stock tee is once again provided by American Apparel, I don’t have much experience of wearing girls tees, as you’d imagine, so I can’t really tell you much about the cut, but it feels just as soft as the guys ones and that’s good enough for me. The print feels a little bit thicker than the other Social-Ts that I’ve reviewed, but that might just be because this tee has the largest coverage of print of the three I’ve seen. It isn’t a big issue though, the printing is still of a high-quality. As with their other tees, there is info printed on the inside neck of the tee instead of a hang tag, so there’s not even a chance of tag-showing embarrassment.

    Costiness=$32 a month (discounts available for 6 & 12 month subscriptions) Link

    Review: Resolution by Social T

    by Andy on April 30, 2008

    13.jpg

    HYAs latest advertiser, Social T, sent a couple of tees over recently, which is great because it gave me a chance to make sure that I was still advertising a quality product, because I want you guys to trust the people that I let advertise on this site. I think it says a lot about Social T that even though they’ve already sent me a sample in the past that they wanted me to check out more of their limited edition tees.

    For those of you that are unaware, Social T is a company that runs on the subscription model that is increasing in popularity. Basically, you can pay each month, or a prepaid plan (2, 3, 6, or 12 months) and a new tee will arrive on your doorstep around the 15th of each month. Social T will only print as many tees as they have subscribers for that month, so these tees are pretty limited edition, if you’re into that kind of thing. Of course, you do have to make a leap of faith with services like these since you don’t know what will be inside the envelope each month. I quite like being surprised when I receive a tee (I make a point of never picking a certain design when offered a sample), but I guess its different when you’re actually paying for the clothing. Luckily, Social T do have a style that they don’t deviate from too dramatically, so you can judge from their back catalogue of ‘issues‘ whether your style fits with theirs, and hopefully you won’t be disappointed at what you pull out of the package each month.

    I know I said that the house style at Social T doesn’t deviate very much, but that doesn’t mean that they’re sticking to a certain type of design, I just think that if you like one of their tees, its fairly likely that you’re going to like most of them. Social T aren’t just making tees that look good (hey, they’re called ‘Social’ for a reason), they’re also meant to help spread the message about social issues and spark up a conversation, and they manage to do it in a way that isn’t preachy. For example, today’s shirt (Issue 15, January 2008) is a bit on the lighter side and has “I resolve to be a better human being” written on it, a lot, obviously as a reference to people making New Year’s resolutions, which isn’t exactly a hard hitting social issue, and as such doesn’t serve as a very good example for what I was trying to say, but I would imagine it could have been a pretty decent pick-me-up if I’d got this in the mail in mid-January just as I was starting to lose track of my resolutions and think that “one doughnut isn’t going to matter.”

    Quality is impressive (shocking, I know). The stock tee is provided by American Apparel, so the vast majority of readers know what you’re getting there (soft cotton, sweatshop-free, made in Los Angeles, slim fit, hipster friendly), and the printing is good too. You can feel the print, but it certainly is not rough. I can also attest to the print on Social T’s goods being long-lasting too, since issue 13 is still looking good in my wardrobe with a distinct lack of fading. Instead of a custom tag or the standard AA tag, Social T have printed a tag inside the shirt which has all the expected details on it, plus a mysterious ‘rn#103255′, which I guess might be some kind of print number, so that you know its limited edition, but I could easily be wrong, it has happened before… once.Costiness=$32 per month (some prepaid deals are cheaper per month) Link
