the ultimate list of t-shirt blogs

Whilst I did say on Friday that I would be enjoying the weekend (and I did!), I also spent a decent part of it working (the parts when it was raining). Here is the fruits of my labour, Put simply, it’s a big list of t-shirt blogs. So what? You might ask, there are already lists of t-shirt blogs on the internet, and I’d know since my original t-shirt blog list was the basis for many of them.

It’s a fair point, why make a dedicated site about it when I could just write a blog post? Well, I like the idea of very focused sites that are made up of a handful of pages (three, in this case) that serve a purpose and do nothing else. Hide Your Arms has grown and changed immeasurably since day one, whereas will only ever do the same thing as it does today, list t-shirt blogs and allow you to rate them. Actually that’s a bit of a lie, in the future I intend to allow you to order the blogs according to Google PR, Alexa ranking, and Technorati ranking, but I’m splitting hairs (with myself!) over that issue. will be much more ‘alive’ than a blog post, bloggers can add their own blogs to the list, rather than e-mail me asking me to update a blog post (I can be pretty lazy on the updates), and I think that the rating system could be quite interesting too. Oh, and it has a totally cool URL, which is reason enough to build any website.

I’ve built this intending for it to be a good resource for the whole t-shirt community. Us bloggers will hopefully get more traffic out of it, people that buy t-shirts (which is pretty much everyone, everywhere) will be able to find new blogs which showcase different types of t-shirt, and people that sell t-shirts will be able to find bloggers to reach out to and hopefully get more exposure for their brand.

If you like the site, I would really appreciate it if you could give it a good start in life by sharing it in any way possible, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Facebook, your own blog (here are some embeddable badges for tee bloggers), anything. If you don’t like it, let me know why, because criticism is often more useful than praise.


Who’s honouring me now? Aussie Edition

by Andy on September 22, 2009


Because flattery is awesome, here’s a point all about something great, Hide Your Arms! And by extension, me!

Australian fashion blog and store Fabulous Nobodies (or FABNOB for short) have crowned HYA as their top tee blog. I don’t like to put too much stock into these things, because if I actually got big-headed about these things instead of pretending to be big-headed about these things then I doubt people would enjoy reading this site as much as they do. This is probably a good point to say that there should be big things in this site’s future, I really am working on the redesign (really), and there is a designer working on the new logo, so hopefully the best t-shirt blog will also be the best looking. This won’t be happening immediately as I’m taking my annual trip to the South of France during October, but I do hope to keep the site running on at least a 50% schedule.



Keep Calm and Carry is a tee that has become so popular it’s even being worn by people that are inexplicably considered to be celebrities (seen above). Geno over at Laajo, the Chinese-language (right?) t-shirt blog, has put together a great post (surprisingly well translated into English by Google) about the tee and the various variations that have been created based upon it. There’s also a Flickr Group that you might want to check out that has lots of funny (non-tee) variations on the original iconic poster.

The Ultimate List of T-Shirt Lists

by Andy on July 2, 2009


You know what people love? T-Shirts. You know what people also love? Lists. I guess that explains why I’ve written so many t-shirt lists in the past, but did you know that other people have written lists about t-shirts as well? I know, crazy right, I’m not the only person who thought of that, hell, someone even devoted a whole blog to it.

I thought it might be useful to scour the web for these tee lists and put them all together in one big post. Of course, a lot of these lists will be fairly old now, and t-shirts inevitably come and go, so some of the tees featured in the lists will no longer be available, but there’s not a whole lot we can do about that now, is there? If you know of any lists that I’ve missed (and I’m sure there will be a lot), please let me know in the comments.

It would be very, very much appreciated if you could tweet about this post, stumble it, bookmark it on delicious, mention it in a blog post, digg it, or fly a banner behind an airplane with the URL on it, anything at all. These lists take a long time to put together, and the more people that get to see them the more people will be visiting the lists I’ve collected below, which will be beneficial for the entire t-shirt blogosphere.

    I’ve done another update on the t-shirt blog list, and its now up to 155 blogs. I was hoping to accompany this post with a picture of HYA running on a new iPhone, but since it didn’t get delivered you’re being treated to a picture of the shiitake mushrooms that I’ve been growing for the past few weeks (but am afraid to crop because I know nothing about mushrooms).

    Check out the list of 155 t-shirt blogs.



    A whole load of t-shirt blogs

    Remember last year when I wrote an article called 65 t-shirt blogs, and I said that I didn’t think I would have found and written about all of them? Well, I was right, very right. I’ve managed to find 133 t-shirt blogs, and websites related to t-shirts that I think are of interest enough to be included in this list, and put together the second edition of the great big t-shirt blog list. The original 65 blogs are underneath the 71 latest editions and haven’t really been touched. With the new sites I’ve also included how frequently they’re updated so that you know whether you’re visiting a ghost ship of a blog before clicking through. Remember, this list isn’t in any kind of order, so if you write a tee blog and find yourself listed low down, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean anything, its just how I happened to write the list.

    Any blogs that I’ve missed off the list and been notified about at a later date are going to be added right at the bottom of the list, at the moment there are 27 additions.

    1. BLOKK
    Update Frequency: A couple of times a week – active
    Bio: Blokk is a Russian language blog, but they often let the pictures do the talking, so don’t let that language barrier stop you giving it a look.

    2. Crucial Headache [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Couple of times a month – currently MIA for 1 month
    Bio:This guy only writes about t-shirts he owns, usually vintage band ones, and whilst posts are relatively few and far between they are usually really long posts and quite a good read.

    3. Tee Blast [Dead]
    Update Frequency:N/A
    Bio: I’m sure this used to be a blog, but now just redirects to a parked domain page, it might pop back up in the future, who knows!

    4. T-Shirt Gumbo
    Update Frequency: About four times a month – active
    Bio: Not my particular cup of tea, but if you’re into ‘funny’ shirts then this could be the blog for you.

    5. Aaron’s T-Shirt Review
    Update Frequency: About 3 times a month – variable but active
    Bio: Almost all the links might be affiliate-based, but its still a pretty good read, and in a more traditional website format than a regular blog.

    6. Fat Seagull
    Update Frequency:Daily – active
    Bio: Very much an underrated blog from the UK, one of my favourites in the the t-shirt world, lots of great streetwear tees.

    7. threadspot
    Update Frequency: Sporadic, it probably averages out to 1 post a week – active
    Bio: Well written blog, with a lean towards funny tees.

    8. No Bleach [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Last updated July 2007 – Dead
    Bio: Whilst this site may not have been updated for a long time, there are 12 pages of archives to look over.

    9. T-Shirt Casserole
    Update Frequency: About 4/5 times a month – active
    Bio: Their description says “t-shirts from anywhere.” Anywhere, as long as its CafePress, apparently. This is pretty old in blog terms so expect a nice big archive.

    10. 辣椒网志
    Update Frequency: 4/5 times a month – active
    Bio: It’s all written in Chinese, so I can’t tell you if its a good read, but the author does pick good brands.
    Link (Google translated to English)

    11. You Design It – Blog [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Daily
    Bio: Promotional blog for a custom printing company called You Design It.

    12. Thy Goodies [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Two a month, with frequent breaks, no posts for last two months, dead?
    Bio: Hard to describe, sometimes just a picture of a tee serves as a recommendation, sometimes its a long article about a category of clothing (retro, gothic, etc.), judge for yourself.

    13. Chewing Glass Tees [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Daily until going MIA two months ago
    Bio: Mostly funny tee recommendations, with good commentary.

    14. Threadless Watch [Dead]
    Update Frequency: It isn’t, MIA since November 2006- Dead
    Bio: This site used to provide decent coverage of Threadless, but has stopped updating without notice or explanation.

    15. My Daily T [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Not exactly daily, MIA since February – Dead
    Bio: Affiliate-based t-shirt recommendations (usually of tees for television shows) with little commentary.

    16. T
    Update Frequency: Due to it’s nature, its quite hard to tell, but no new tees have been added since January – probably active
    Bio: This is more of a t-shirt directory than a blog (though there is an RSS feed), and people vote for which tees they think are good.

    17. T-Shirt Advocate
    Update Frequency: Every few days, had a couple of weeks off, but I’d presume it will be back – active
    Bio: Slick looking blog with really quality posts and brands.

    18. Rumplo
    Update Frequency: Lots of tees every day – very active
    Bio: This isn’t a blog, but needs to be included in almost any t-shirt list. Rumplo is a place where people post cool tees and they get commented on and faved, its a young site but already popular so there are lots of tees to look at.

    19. Got Apparel Official Blog [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Dependent upon whether there is company news, 1 post a week generally
    Bio: Promotional blog for an apparel company, all posts are related to company developments, sales and promotions.

    20. DAPT Blog [Dead] [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Varies, MIA for 2 months
    Bio: Promotional blog for a company that is snappily named ‘Design and Print T-shirts’.

    21. T-Shirt Jihad Blog [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Weekly – active
    Bio: The company blog for T-Shirt Jihad, a company that recognise that the term ‘jihad’ doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with war and terrorism. The blog mostly covers political issues and is rarely self-promotional.

    22. GymTops
    Update Frequency: Every few days – active
    Bio: A slick looking blog all about clothing for, by, and about mixed martial artists.

    23. Chaunt
    Update Frequency: Irregular (and the blogger knows it!) – active
    Bio: It’s unfortunate that posting is irregular because the blogger is a damn good writer.

    24. TShirt Review
    Update Frequency: Every couple of days – active
    Bio: This well-written blog that uncovers brands that you don’t see much of in the t-blogosphere. One thing that makes me uneasy about them is that you can pay them to review your company.

    25. Blog T-shirt [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Irregular, MIA for a couple of months – possibly dead
    Bio: This blog, which I think is written by someone for whom English isn’t their first language, seems to be for a guy to show off his t-shirt designs (which are available through Spreadshirt), but he seems to have given up just a few weeks into the project.

    26. The T-shirt Review
    Update Frequency: Daily- active
    Bio: Well written and well designed, what’s not to like!

    27. Jay’s Van Tribe Blog [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Weekly
    Bio: Whilst this blog is mostly serves promotional purposes for a Spreadshirt-based t-shirt label, it does cover other ground away from their own brand.

    28. Thunderfrogs
    Update Frequency: Near daily – active
    Bio: In what might be one of the most bizarre pairings I’ve ever come across, Thuderfrogs blogs about t-shirts and horse racing. Now that is a niche!

    29. Shirts on Sale
    Update Frequency: Daily
    Bio: “Current updates on tshirt sales from printers like Uneetee, Shirt.Woot, Shirtaday & other graphic boutique teeshirt printers as well as the best t-shirt coupons.”

    30. Contrast Shop Blog [Corporate] [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Very irregular, MIA for 3 months – possibly dead
    Bio: Full Disclosure: I used to write this blog but quit a while back. Naturally, it’s well written, and serves as promotion for Contrast Shop, but did cover some other tee related chatter as well.

    31. Assault Apparel’s Blog [Corporate]
    Update Frequency: Daily – active
    Bio: This blog serves as promotion for Assault Apparel, but the writer also makes a lot of effort to help others making their way in the tee business by writing tutorials for designers and providing other valuable information.

    Update Frequency: It was frequent until going MIA a month ago, though the write did explain that they were sorry for the absence and hope to be back soon.
    Bio: Well written blog that ticks all the boxes in my opinion, hopefully the writer will indeed be back soon.

    33. TV Teez [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Irregular, possibly dead, only 3 posts written
    Bio: I like the idea of a blog written about t-shirts that are about and from TV shows, but when you’ve written 3 posts in 3 months then things aren’t looking so good.

    34. Buy This T-shirt
    Update Frequency: Multiple posts daily – active
    Bio: Just pictures of good tees (excellent product picks), that’s how I like it.

    35. Indie Clothing Blog
    Update Frequency: Posts every few days until last month when they stopped without notice
    Bio: It may well be an uninspired name, but the design is great and it is well written with news, interviews and product picks from across the indie clothing spectrum.

    36. T-Shirt Rater
    Update Frequency: Regular posts every few days – active
    Bio: “The funny T-shirt blog”, so I guess you know what kind of designs you’re in for if you click through!

    37. T-shirt Guy’s T-shirt Blog
    Update Frequency: Regular, at least once a week – active
    Bio: Nice commentary, nice (non-arty) product picks.

    38. Black T-shirt |Blog
    Update Frequency: Almost daily – active
    Bio: When I found a blog called ‘Black T-shirt blog’ I figured that all the tees would be black. Wrong! They like all the colours of the rainbow, and they also seem to like text tees too.

    39. Talk About T-shirts [Dead]
    Update Frequency: Daily, then weekly, now MIA – presumably dead
    Bio: Only four posts, so clearly the author got tired of the subject rather quickly, and didn’t really know what direction to take the blog in (startup guide? designer resource? product picks?)

    40. Tee vs Tee
    Update Frequency: New tees frequently added
    Bio: This site presents you with two tees, you pick your favourite of the two, and then you repeat the process. The best performing tees get onto a leaderboard. *Only the leaderboard is available at the moment, I’m not sure if the interactive part of the site is going to come back.

    41. T*Fodder
    Update Frequency: Hard to tell, still probably active
    Bio: Another site which aims to rate and rank tees using user voting. Looks pretty slick, too.

    42. T-shirt Rank
    Update Frequency: Dependent upon users – active

    Lists: 65 T-shirt Blogs

    by Andy on November 12, 2007



    I don’t think that anyone has yet managed to nail down just how many t-shirt blogs there are, and even though I try and keep tabs on these kinds of things I know I’ve missed some off. If you know of any that aren’t on this list please include them in the comments so that I can add them. There are no guarantee’s of quality in this list, some of the blogs do rely a bit too much on affiliate links in their tee picks for my liking, but give most of them are worth a look in my opinion.
