Ok, so the whole Italia thing is obviously a popular T-shirt after the world cup, but the reason for this photo is to honor a super awesome bar tender in San Francisco who gave me and my friend Paul a tonne of local information about where the cool places are to hang out, and i’m going to share that here (i’m transcribing here notes on a guest check so I might have misinterpreted some stuff)

I got this shirt in the mail from the good folks at Shaolinen in the UK on July 19th, the very next day, july 20th, I decided try it out. I’m out driving around in my car and i’m listening to NPR (radio) and the announcer says “on this day in history Bruce Lee died, 1973 July 20th”. Totally wierd. Anyway, check it out it’s on sale
Just got an email from the folks at Yabbos, announcing their opening sale, with a coupel’o’coupon codes. Enjoy.
The first is a 10% of coupon, code yabbos1. The other is a buy three get one free special. Put four items in the cart and enter yabbos4 when checking out for a 20 dollar discount, meaning everyone is getting AA shirts with great designs for 15 dollars each. And of course the designers get half of the profits.
This is the Shaolinen Lone Wolf t-shirt, and I’m posting again about these guys because I dinged them last time for there beautiful but hard to navigate flash site. Well in a matter of weeks they turned around a really good looking html site, not only that, they put their stuff on sale. So go check them out
Those amazing folks at teetonic are “best t-shirt company ever” this week These shirts came all the way from the UK and they are super sweet and very unique. I am particularly keen on the Hung Consumer graphic, being a product of consumer culture. We have over the years tried to make meaning through what we consume. With increasing access to creative tools though I feel we are on the cusp of a consumer revolution where we will make meaning through what we make and create.
Teetonic lets loose the love machine from Dutch designer, Stinger. Alternative power is one thing, but wait till some hottie says “what is that on your shirt?” Unless of course you are the hottie in which case, the answer is still the same
Kung Fu Girl at goodstorm.com, not only a sweet design, but did you know goodstorm gives most of the profits to the artist? Seriously, if you want to create your own t-shirt store (and from the amount of emails I’m getting it seems like a lot of people are) then why wouldn’t you check them out. I created my own t-shirt that sucked there in no time at all, and they’ve got loads of options from budget T’s to heavyweight, and fitted t’s.
Gapingvoid is a hugely popular blog written by Hugh Macleod, who’s quirky cartoons on business cards are vaguely reminiscent of Gary Larsons the “far side”. Lots of geeky in jokes to be had here, and it certainly fall into Zefranks definition of cool. You can find all his shirts here.
