Another couple of weeks, another round of awesome t-shirt blogs to review. This week’s group is a varied bunch with interviews, videos and introductions to new brands. In fact it was tough to keep the list down to only five, but in the interest of staying brief and focused….here are the best of the best.

Interview with Jason Carne of Among Villains by I Am The Trend

I am a sucker for interviews because you get to peek into the mind of designers and creators to see what makes them good at what they do. This week I Am The Trend keeps the trend flowing by interviewing Jason Carne from Among Villains. Jason has an impressive body of work in design and he’s bringing all his creativity to the table for the Among Villains project.

WearingSocial™ Is (Express + Socialize) X Wear via Cottonable

Sometimes it’s tough to spot a good idea when it first develops; other times it’s obvious right away. The concept WearingSocial definitely looks like a case of the latter. Social networking has never been more popular and WearingSocial is gearing up to give users a whole new experience. Think “your online activity on a t-shirt”.

Limited Edition Chez Panisse T-Shirts Supporting Edible Schoolyard at Tcritic

Tcritic is a pioneering t-shirt blog which helped kickstart the popularity of these types of blogs. It’s appropriate then that this week Tcritic brings us a post about another pioneer. Alice Waters founded a restaurant called Chez Panisse over 40 years ago. The cool thing is that this restaurant was one of the first ones on the scene of the local food movement. Their focus is on sustainability and they’re releasing a line of t-shirts called the edible schoolyard project to bring attention to the cause.

Interview with Nathan W. Pyle at The Shirt List

The Shirt List wants to bring readers the best t-shirts in the world. When they’re not spotlighting awesome t-shirts, they also focus on awesome t-shirt designers. One such designer is Nathan W. Pyle who has long been a fixture at Threadless and who continues to crank out the hits.

I’m Giving Away 14 Threadless Gift Certificates Over 14 Days–Birthday Bonanza! by T Roundup

I’m happy to make TRoundUp a part of my own tee round up. Especially since Colin is doing such a cool promotion. In celebration of his 21st birthday he’s giving away fourteen Threadless gift certificates over the next fourteen days. What a great way to help him celebrate and rack up some cool shirts in the process. [Andy: I know I posted this news earlier, but it's a big giveaway so it's good to have it up here again to make sure everyone sees it]

So there you have it, some highlights in the t-shirt blogging world from the last week. Unfortunately though, there are probably many others that we might have missed. Please hit me up at @youdesignit on Twitter to let me know if your blog post deserves being featured.

Brought to you by guest blogger Blake at You Design It where they have a passion for t shirt design.

The Ultimate List of T-Shirt Lists

by Andy on July 2, 2009

t shirt lists The Ultimate List of T Shirt Lists

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.

    €15000 up for grabs at LaFraise

    by Andy on November 11, 2008

    blog teaser15k4 470x313 €15000 up for grabs at LaFraise

    One of the great things about laFraise having J3concepts as their EU blogger is that he always makes great illustrations to go with posts, which really help to pretty up the place.

    Anyway, LaFraise always give away Brouzoufs (credits) at Christmas to all members as a present to give them a decent discount off their next purchase. They thought that they’d do something to reward their hard working community of designers this year, and so, 3 designs are going to be produced which will net each designer €5000 each, which is certainly a nice way to finish the year. Here are the details:

    -Contest is open to all countries on all laFraise sites.
    -Submissions start November 10th – December 1st (then allow 1 week for final voting)
    -No other contests will be run during this time.
    -We will pick the 9 top designs which will then be put into their own gallery as finalists from December 8th-14th
    -3 winners will then be chosen each getting 5,000 Euros (yes thats EUROS!) and their designs will be printed in a limited run.

    Not bad eh? Check out the full blog post on LaFraise in case I’ve missed something.

    Off topic note: did anyone else spot Tcritic getting more than just a name check on BoingBoing a few days ago when they were rounding up election related tees? Karl is still on the lookout for designers, so if you’re interested drop him an e-mail.

    Prez Dispenser from Tcritic (yes, that Tcritic)

    by Andy on September 12, 2008


    And in other news a snake was recently spotted eating its own tail.

    Yup, Karl from Tcritic has gone and started his own line, called the Tcritic artist series, which, much like Tcritic itself, aims to “find and promote cool designs that are maybe a bit under the radar.” I like the concept behind it, it really does follow on from what Karl does on a daily basis, he found the artist for the first tee at the Renegade Art Fair in San Fransisco (by the way, Renegade Chicago is going on this weekend) and asked him on the spot if he would like to turn his design into a t-shirt.

    The design itself is actually based upon a linocut (though I think the tee is screenprinted), a medium which I thought people stopped using many moons ago, but I quite like the way that it adds a certain DIY kind of feel to the design, which I think really works well when paired up with a politically themed tee.
