Daily Tees & News for December 12th

by Andy on December 12, 2011

breaking bad t-shirt

Everyone have a good weekend? I did until last night when I had a nasty fall during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope. Fell on my front, my jakcet rode up and my stomach turned into ‘brakes’, my tummy new resembles those crisps that are meant to look like streaky bacon, oh, the pain!

I really want to get into Breaking Bad, but after a couple of episodes of the first season it was just too depressing so I stopped, I will probably try again though. Shirt is $10 today at TeeFury.

I haven’t read Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, but apparently this Qwertee shirt has something to do with it.

Apparently this RIPT tee is something to do with a cartoon show that may or may not be on TV anymore but to be completely honest I don’t recognise it and no one mentions it in the RIPT comments, your suggestions please!

And what band is this Owl at Shirt.Woot listening to? The Who, of course!

Pretty rare that you see a Gremlins tee, but this is a lovely example of the breed at The Yetee.

Seinfeld Festivus shirt over at TeeMinus24. Funny how you don’t hear much about Christmukkah nowadays.

I haven’t seen Donnie Darko so this shirt at OtherTees may or may not be genius.

You want an Angry Birds t-shirt? 24tee have got it!

A melting Portal companion cube greets us today at TeeRaiders.

I really like this Star Wars design at Graphic Lab, but I do question the black on dark grey colour choice. Then again, it would probably look a bit naff if it was on a white t-shirt.

Ahhh, one of my favourite Loviu designs.

Pikachu gets an outing on this Shirt Punch design.

Tshirt Contest ensure that we have at least one Doctor Who t-shirt today, thank goodness.

Very nice shirt of the day at DBH.

BustedTees deal of the next couple of days is their attachment that you put on a beer to make it look like you have a mustache. Presumably it’s like those little win trinkets people buy so that you know who’s wine glass belongs to who, except for beer. $8.99 for 6 instead of $11.99

Expansion II comes out to play once again at Tilteed.

Tee Mashups is a site I found out about at the weekend that offers designs on sale for 48 hours. Today and tomorrow they have a Dick Tracey vs Carmen Sandiego shirt available.

Megan Fox may be a very attractive lady, and that’s a pretty cool sweatshirt, but I will never understand why people wear stuff that looks like it has spent a few months with a bunch of moths.

Wrongwroks have added hiking boots to their product range, of course.

There’s 25% off everything today only at Loserkids.

Mashable have a good resource for increasing Facebook engagement through custom tabs that should be useful for store owners.

Yes No Maybe have a few coupon codes available. The more you spend the more you save, all the way up to 20% off.

Original Music Shirt, who I still think took a lot of inspiration from Threadless with their redesign, are offering free global shipping with the coupon code ILIKETOMOVEIT if you spend 25€+ before December 14th.

Springleap are holding a contest that is only open to previous design winners, which should make for some pretty tasty entries.

OMUNKY are offering 18% off from now until December 19th with the coupon code 18off2011.

PalmerCash are now selling shirts, the kind with buttons!

The Quiet Life are running a holiday promo, if you spend $100 or more they’ll give you a free duffel bag that they usuall charge $40 for. It would be perfect for carrying around your gym gear since that will inevitably be your new years resolution. Go to the gym more dammit Andy! They’ve also restocked their hat selection.

Terratag are knocking 10% off all orders. No coupon necessary, the discount will automatically be applied at the checkout.

Whilst I do like the idea of ‘ugly’ Christmas tees I think that this Kickstarter project might be a bit too late, it won’t be funded (if it reaches 100%) until January 9th, and then when will you receive the shirt? I’m pretty sure everyone’s Christmas cheer will be long gone by that time.


coriander ruined my salad

I heartily concur with this message; not that I eat a lot of salads, but when I do I don’t want to find a herb masquerading as a salad leaf.

Americans will need to substitute the word ‘cilantro’ for ‘coriander’.

Filthy TOX12 t-shirt by Yes No Maybe

by Andy on September 5, 2011

TOX12 t-shirt

There is a very interesting story being this t-shirt, and quite a controversial one really, so I’m going to copy/paste the description from Yes No Maybe.

[This t-shirt features] the famous TOX logo, as seen nationwide – especially in London over the past decade – and TOX wont be able to write himself in 2012 as he’ll be in prison for the next 27 months.

He was convicted at Blackfriars crown court of seven charges of criminal damage and cleared of six – charged with causing more than £200,000 damage.

Sentencing him, Judge Peter Clarke said: “There is nothing artistic about what you do.”

Well we disagree, and TOX is part of the london landscape whether you like it or not. It’s that attitude and dedication that we celebrate as his artistic endeavour. A bombing ninja in the night – addicted to scrawling his simple TOX tag and suffixing it with the year. Classic.

This T is designed to look FilthyDirty. Painted and sealed in, so it won’t wash out, run or fade. Of course, you’ll naturally add your own filth and dirt too. We also lovingly smashed it about, for extra little holes and scuffs and life!

Personally, I’m not really a fan of tagging because people kept tagging the door on our house in Leicester and it was annoying because it was our door on private property when they had the whole market to go at. However, I have no knowledge of TOX12 or his work so I’m not going to judge him, and I do really like the idea of how YNM have treated the shirt to make it really fit with graffiti, it’s a cool approach that I haven’t seen before.

garbage pail kids t-shirt by yes no maybe

I’m pretty sure that as a 26 year old person I should be old enough to remember who/what the Garbage Pail Kids are/were, but to be honest I have no recollection beyond the actual name. Still, that doesn’t stop me from being impressed that Yes No Maybe got John Pound (who did the original Garbage Pail Kids artwork) to create this t-shirt design for them. Like I said, I have no recollection of GPK, but I would assume that this shirt is going to bring out a lot of nostalgia in the over-25 section of the readership.

I was watching Charlie Brooker’s You Have Been Watching on Sky+ (adverts? no thanks!) last night and I noticed Jack Whitehall wearing what I thought looked like a cool tee, then they showed a full frame shot which had the whole tee in it, and I was right!

Costiness=£26.09 Available from Yes No Maybe



Over the past few years the iconic “Keep Calm And Carry On” design has made an extremely successful transition from cool war-time poster to cool irony-time t-shirt, inspiring many parodies and more than a few copycats. Now I’m not a fancy big city lawyer, so I don’t know a thing about copyright, but I’m fairly sure that Yes No Maybe were the first to release this design as a tee, and now they’re spinning it out as it’s own site so that you won’t get all flustered trying to find it on their main site.

I do believe that the original was white text on a red tee, which is still really cool, but YNM have expanded on that and now offer the same design in numerous colourways, including gold foil on black (shown above, obviously) which I’m rather partial to. Americans will probably find the £19.91 price a little high, and personally I think that £19.39 would be a rather more appropriate price (and you shouldn’t need a history degree to know why).

Costiness=£19.91 Available from Keep Calm London



Just wanted to let you know about our site-wide 30% off sale – it’s only on until February 28th and it really does make YNM stuff fantastic value! Our Keep Calm and Carry On T shirts are currently selling at under £15 – including free worldwide shipping on all orders!

Diogo Machado (aka add fuel to the fire) is yet another artist I’d never heard of but will be trying to keep an eye on in the future because he’s “got mad skillz” when it comes to creating cute characters and crazy typography, as this design that he’s done for Yes No Maybe attests.

Its amazing that a t-shirt with a ransom message on it like this…


… could have been designed by Gideon Conn, a man described on Yes No Maybe‘s site as “a lovely chap.” I really like this design, I imagine that its one of those tees that you actually get quite uncomfortable wearing because everyone is always staring at your chest reading it, unless you’re this guys, of course.

What, what, tally ho and all that, because this is the third British post in a row, you practically need a cup of tea in your hand just to read the blog today!

Famed doodler Jon Burgerman has put his own spin on Yes No Maybe‘s name and produced this rather spiffy looking tee. One of the things that I like about Yes No Maybe is that whilst they do put their name in most of their products, they never do it in a way that screams “this is a logo tee, everyone go and buy YNM clothes,” its more like they’re using they tell artists to create a design that is inspired by the name, not about the name, which I guess means that they’ve got a lot of great opportunities for playing with typography. Another interesting thing about this design is that it marks the beginning of YNMs summer colour range, they’re going to be using the traffic light colourway of red, orange, and green over the next few months in a lot of their summer releases, possibly in reference to the ridiculous amounts of traffic that clog up the arteries of Britain’s road network as soon as the sun pops out from behind the clouds for five minutes.

Thinking Hurts by Yes No Maybe

by Andy on April 22, 2008


Yes No Maybe have got a load of new designs out for your purchasing pleasure, and this clever hoodie is part of the new collection. Printing on the hood is always a bit fun and this is a great example of it. Usually the print on the hood is just a bit of an afterthought, a welcome afterthought, but never that integral to the design, but in this case YNM have turned it into the focal point of the hoodie, which is a cool change of pace, although I guess it does mean that you’re going to need to have your hood up more often then you usually would for people to ‘get’ it.
