Well looks like t-shirts on threadless are going to have the chance of winning an extra 10 grand as part of the “bestee” awards. Looks like Bestee is an annual award that is awarded for various categories. Looks like they are giveing away a total of $100,000 so if my math is correct that is 10 bestee awards. They mention a couple of categories like “Most Groundbreaking Design” to “Best Gallery Photo” to “Most Dedicated Blogger”. Interestingly Gallery Photo and Dedicated Blogger awards imply that you can win a Bestee award for other kinds of community participation, which is awesome. BTW when they say blogger, they mean people who create posts on the threadless messageboards, which they call blogs, so i won’t be up for an award
They could at least put me on their blogroll, c’mon threadless, i’m in the top ten of referrers of business to you
Ok everyone, mark your calendars because Threadshow is back in SF on December 16th and at a new location, The Galleria, 101 Henry Adam’s Street, San Francisco, i’ve created an upcoming listing here. The last event was a blast and that was their first one in SF so I have even higher expectations for their next one. There will be DJ’s, a bar (possibly open, it was last time), and the live screen printing looks very interesting as well. I’ll also be on the look out for cool after parties as well.
They are still taking exhibitor applications so if you are local and an indie clothing designer you should totally check it out.
THREAD San Francisco gives fashion adventurists the chance to pick up limited edition & hard to find pieces whilst snagging designer lines at discounted prices.
Featured Brands Include:
UPPER PLAYGROUND / HUF / EXACT SCIENCE / LOYAL ARMY / TANK THEORY / and the list goes on……………..

He’s got very scary t-shirts
Memento Mori from Burnswell (means remember you are mortal)
Nigel’s Skeleton T-shirt from Found Item Clothing (I know it’s not a skull, but it’s close)
Pink Skull & Crossbones from Ichabods (I have this t-shirt and Ichabods do really great quality prints)
Crying Skull from Ba6iks (warning annoying music plays as soon as you hit the site, and no way to deep link, but still a cool shirt)
The Gazzette just did a story on Lucky Threadz who are based in Colorado Springs. The paper had called me up when they were researching the story and were nice enough to quote me, but why oh why in 2008 can’t they figure out how to create a hyper link for gawds sake. Anyway, here’s the quote.
Lucky Threadz are doing to be nice enough to send me a copy of the actual paper as well, thanks guys.

Threadless’s most recent co-sponsored competition was with Gmail. The winner “Hello Dave” seems entirely appropriate for the googleplex the scale of which is barely comprehensible. I mean, everyone’s got 4gig+ of space now, and it’s growing every day.
Ok, the t-shirt is really called “Console” but it is hawt especially for a console fan boy like myself
Oh, and if you think that girls draping themselves in game console controllers is some kind of fiction there does seem to be some photographic precedent (I wonder if there is some kind of name for this fetish, anyone?)
Christi Smith, the creators of the game Perv Artistry has just released a line of t-shirts, perv artistry is sort of like pictionary for grown ups with a naughty sense of humor. Think of these t-shirts as the thinking mans (or womans) frat t-shirts.
This would be even better if people that played the game were able to upload images of their pervy pictographic solutions and the community could vote on the best ones which then get made into t-shirts, a sort of naught threadless (remember this idea is released under creative commons, share and share alike with attribution)
They sell for both men and women and they use 100% cotton so it’s always that soft comfortable feel. They currently have a sale going on with some of their shirts for some great prices or you can get their secret grab bag if you want a deal. The designs have no apparent meaning but art is art and they look damn good on a shirt. There are a variety of things to pick up form the site so take a peek!
Check out geek week at byebyetokyo, anyone have any experience with the quality of their shirts?
I’m stuck in Chicago airport right now trying to get back to SF Great party going on at the Supper Club celebrating their second anniversary and i’m on the guest list. It’s a pretty swish club with lots of beautiful people, always fun for people watching.
