Interestingly Irate Monkey has launched a t-shirt competition without even a web site, the entire thing is built as a facebook application and there is no associated web site, which I find a fascinating occurrence.
One of the things that make Irate Monkey a bit different from the other T-Shirt competitions is their commitment to give winning artists 20% of the profits with a $500 minimum, and the possibility of a $10,000 prize at the end of year.
Now i don’t usually write about Cafe Press stuff, not because I have anything against Cafe Press but the quality of the ideas and design is usually pretty low. These guys have got some pretty good shirts though, do you guys have any fav designers that are on Cafe Press, Zazzle, etc.?
To win todays Threadless Gift Certificate be the first to name the style of beard circled in the picture below, the answer is based on a little Beard key they have on their site where they sell the shirt (so even if you know the style by another name the t-shirt company definition wins)
Anyway, because of this cash I had to spend I went to Zappos to shop and much to my surprise they sell a lot more than shoes now and have all kinds of stuff, kind of like Amazon. They like to position themselves as a service company that sells stuff and all my transactions with them have been brilliant, they do free two way shipping so returns never come out of your own pocket, pretty good idea if you’re selling clothing. Anyway, this shirt is rocking
Just some quick news from the Mission Indie Mart that was at 12 Galaxies on sunday, it was too nice a day for too much shopping so I did want to drop by and check it out, and then headed over to Delores Park. Overall there was a lot of cool stuff there, including t-shirts, bags, hats, jewelry etc. and it was a very laid back vibe. It was a hell warm day so I felt bad for the vendors that were upstairs and in the back
So I got to meet Broke Ass Stuart who has been writing a guide for getting around cheaply in SF for a couple of years, a long time SF friend of mine told me his zine started as a bunch of stapled pages. Now he’s published a book and is working on some guides for other city’s. Hmmm, methings Stuart is not going to be broke for much longer, help the brother out and buy a t-shirt.
and I’m obligated to pimp this hat as well, because I bought one and actually got a little discount if I promised to blog about it This is from Megan Grove who also does a bunch of hand painted designs on shirts, hats, ties etc. She sells all this stuff via Myspace right and you can pay through paypal. All the stuff is very unique and cool, and i’m not just saying that

Mustache & friends t-shirts is almost as stupid an idea as starting a blog about t-shirts, so stupid it just might work Could these guys become the Johnny Cupcakes of mustache related t-shirts? I think the anchor or Mustache Ahoy is the best executed design of these that i’ve posted of these three.
In an interesting bit of news CNN has just started selling t-shirts “on demand” with some of their select headlines on them. As you can see certain of the headlines below have a t-shirt icon beside them which enables you to click on it and get your own t-shirt with that headline.
Once you click on a headlines t-shirt icon you’re presented with some color and size choices before you place your order.
The shirts are $15 with 4.99 shipping.
Great idea guys, all I can say is, CNN needs to be more funny If The Onion did this they would make bank!
Right now the onion sells a few funny shirts, but none use their actual headlines, like the Area Man shirt for instance.
UPDATE: of course there is a blog called WTFCNN dedicated to catching outrageous headlines from CNN, now how do we print these
Is this some kind of micro trend with a “vote candidate” slogan with the opposing candidates picture on it? Just in the last week I saw the Vote Hillary and Vote Obama T-shirts from Headline shirts (a source at the company also told me that the vote Obama is selling 20% more than the Vote Hillary, a t-shirt poll?). And then Mingled sent me a couple of images of his line of t-shirts he’s done for the Mayoral race in London which say Vote Ken and Vote Boris (again with the images reversed).
Well this Sunday was another Threadshow at the Galleria in SOMA, it was a good time and there was some new stuff there that I hadn’t seen previously. I was hanging with the editor of the San Francisco Thrillist who was also trying to catch up on local designers. I also met up with a reporter from San Francisco Magazine who was also interested in the T-shirt related goings on. I spent a couple of hours wondering around the show so I thought i’d post a few pics of some of the shirts I got while I was there.
Well I always love Headlineshirts but i’m a bit biased since they started plying me with alcohol up at their fabulous partays. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the shirt is on the site yet.
This was a new brand to me called Apocathary, and I liked a couple of their shirts, unfortunately I can’t find a url on their web site, so anyone if anyone knows please post in the comments.
A new shirt from Artefacture clothing who brought us the Design Will Save The World shirt (which BTW is available for purchase in the SFMOMA) has this new shirt. The design is not the interesting thing in this case but the fabric which is a sustainable bamboo/organic cotton blend. Apparently often harsh chemicals are used to process bamboo into fabric which makes it difficult to do “organic” bamboo.
Used Car T from Turk + Taylor, love the use of appliques for the banner here. I’ve meant to write about these guys last time I met them at Threadshow, love their stuff. Not sure where you buy it though, apart from Threadshow.
Last but not least the very ambitious Rise Up Clothing that is a bone fide non-profit trying to make a difference (I apologize in advance for the web site as they have somewhat disembarked from some of the norms of web navigation
Anyway, apart from the web site I like their designs which stand on their own as great designs, with the added benefit of a cause. I find most “cause” related cothing lets design take the back seat which is a shame if you think about the power of great design to communicate.
To top it off I found some Iron Maiden co-branded Vans, amazing
This t-shirt Extinction is sold through an online retailer called Greenloop which is dedicated to organic, sustainable, and eco-friendly clothing.
All brands carried by Greenloop employ a variety of responsible practices, including: using eco-friendly, sustainable materials; employing energy efficient and low-impact production; investing in renewable energy and carbon offsets; and maximizing recycling and waste reduction. In addition to these practices, these companies engage in fair trade, support organic agriculture, sweat-shop free production, and various environmental non-profit groups through in-kind and financial donation.
If you are interested in sustainability I highly recommend reading the The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, it is obviously nothing to do with clothing, but it is a real eye opener as to what organic and sustainable really means. Just because something says organic doesn’t mean it hasn’t been shipped around the world, the point being it’s worth thinking critically about this before you just jump on something because it says organic.
