Review: Propaganda Clothing Company

by Carlos J. Morales on November 5, 2013

The beauty of the t-shirt culture is that it is constantly inspiring individuals to create something unique and personal to them. If the designs themselves are wearable stories then designers/brand owners are the authors. When I received the email from Propaganda Clothing Company, I was excited to dive in and see what their story was.

Propaganda Clothing Company is a brand based out of Orlando, Florida, but their dark theme is far from Disney World inspired. They use a blunt motto that states “art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth” and are strongly against “attaching a nonsensical graphic to a t-shirt”. After reading their mission statement, I was prepared to open the package – to my surprise it contained two shirts. Before analyzing the two designs, I noticed both shirts were tagless and had their logo printed. This is one the best ways a brand can promote their identity without going over the top, so I thought it was a nice touch.

As far as the designs go, I will admit I was a bit caught off guard at first. The T800 A.D. Robot Jesus was a bit out there, but like I said earlier the author is always entitled to write his story. Who knows this shirt may cater to the religious terminator fan in you?

From a design perspective, I thought printing on a black t-shirt was a smart choice as it allowed the colors to pop. However, I did think the design was a bit busy for everyday usage. It would be interesting to see robot Jesus (yes, you read correctly) in greyscale with the left eye shining red. Overall, I thought it was an unique design, but maybe a bit too messy to put on a shirt, it would look cleaner on a poster.

Exclusive: Expose Your Arms Review

I am not much of tanktop guy and Hide Your Arms normally only review t-shirts, but since the owners were nice enough to send me one… I will review it! This design, Norma Jean, was a bit more conservative and it helped tremendously. Unlike the first design, this tank features a cleaner look using the likeness of Marilyn Monroe. While designs like these are not the most original, they are a great way for people to notice your brand. In this regard, this design was an intelligent move on their part; the soft shades of gray intertwining with the black and white makes it stylistically pleasant.

Overall, I think Propaganda Clothing Company has a lot to figure out and I mean this in a good way. For a start up brand, they have a catalog of designs and the quality of material they print on is comfortable. However, the two designs featured do not really sit well next to each other. In other words, it looks and feels as if they belong to different brands. Propaganda Clothing Company is a new brand with an unique take on what t-shirts should represent. If they tighten up a few design issues and focus a bit more on brand identity in their designs, they will be in great shape as they move forward.

tech noir terminator t-shirt

This is what I like about Found Item Clothing, they don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk too:

Technically speaking, this doesn’t actually appear in tee form in The Terminator. We took the neon script from the nightclub of the same name – this is where Kyle Reese first finds Sarah Connor and Arnold’s T-800 – and reproduced that in tee form. I’m pretty sure that no one else sells anything like it. Attached is a screen grab for your reference; likewise, if you want to know more about the history of the phrase, which was coined by James Cameron himself, you can do so here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tech_noir

I would imagine that they’re right, it takes a certain kind of t-shirt company to create a t-shirt based on a nightclub in a movie.

Costiness=$19.95 Buy it at Found Item Clothing
