Amerikan Doggu Lover

corndog Tee“we need more meat on sticks” bonus if you know the movie that came from (don’t google it). Anyway, this American Doggu Lover (what they call a corndog in Japan) pic was sent to me by the artist who did the original paining, Madoka Ito.

I think it makes a wonderfully unique shirt. The T-shirt is made by Oolongtees.com who make some very unique t-shirts from 8 very talented artists, definitely worth checking out (great name as well Oolong is a kind of tea).

Cheers,

Timbucktees – T-shirts from small town America

podunk vt
Podunk VT, from Timbucktees

If there was ever a site where you should be able to buy a shirt with Lake Woebegon this would be it. It’s wonderfully themed web site has somewhat retro styled, small town t-shirts. I suggest you check out the site because clearly a lot of time and effort was put into the design. Good job guys, keep it up.

Typographic Education In T-Shirt Form

kerning

Not strictly a T-shirt, but of course it wouldn’t work without the zip :-) and who ever heard of a zip up t-shirt. Anyway, a work of genius IMHO from the folks at Veer, all we need to do is stop them stealing sheep!

Rockin’ is My Business and Business is Good

Rockin T-Shirt

Wow, lots of emails coming in from T-Shirt companies wanting a mention, what can I say i’m flattered. Anyway, i’ve no problem pimping some shirts for folks, especially when they help me find cool new T-shirt companies. Anyway, I love this stuff at BurbyShirts.com

burbyshirts

They also have a blog on livejournal.

Great stuff guys, thanks for the note.

From the guys that brought you the White Trash Survival Kit, here’s the polar opposite. I really can’t look at this without thinking of the “end of the world

Shit, shit, fire the rockets! But I’m le tired. Ok, then take a nap, and then fire the rockets

Jesus Was A Streaker – Threadless T-Shirt

Jc Streaker 01

This shirt goes right in the “best t-shirt ever” this week, it is absolute t-shirt genius. This is probably one of the most famous streaking pictures ever, especially as the bobby used his helmet to cover the streakers privates. This shirt is almost so good it deserves it’s own category, brilliant.

Michael Obrien

Interestingly Michael O’Brien is credited with being the first streaker of our modern age, and in fact his 1974 streak was the first time the word streaker was used.

T-Lists – Your Top 5 On A T-Shirt

Tlists 01
Another wonderful example of a co-creative tshirt business called t-lists. Basically it’s a t-shirt shop where you can fill in your top 5 list and order your t-shirt. You can also suggest your own top 5 list that get voted on, I suggested top 5 overrated bloggers :-)

Hunter S. Thompson – When the Going Gets Weird, The Weird Turn Pro

Hunter Montage

The mullet is extra :-) Anyway, these crazy French Spanish guys at Le Filtre Demonde have some very cool, relatively high-brow t-shirts. Put it this way, if you think “i’m with stupid” is the height of t-shirt comedy, you’re going to hate these :-)

RTFM people

Rtfm

This is genius, I love this shirt, it is so clever. From all-tribes.com, looks like their in europe, but the shipping is pretty reasonable and they seem to have their shit together.

On a related note the Communist Party Shirt I blogged about a while ago has been one of the most popular posts on the site, go revisit some classic tcritic :-)

BTW Kathy Sierrra has been writing some great stuff on her blog “creating passionate users” about how companies should approach creating manuals.

Cheers,
