Hooray for Sarcasm T-Shirt and Origami Turned My Pants Into This Shirt

Love these two TypeTees from Threadless (click on the images for product links), looks like they are actually selling them under the domain name TypeTees as well, which I think is interesting, i wonder why?

I Think I’m About To Blog – From VH1 Modeled by Julia Roy

This is of course self professed or even self confessed Digital Girl Julia Roy. Julia is a blogger, serial self portraitist, and agent at new marketing agency Undercurrent with another T-Shirt fan Josh Spear. The shirt she is wearing is avalable from VH1 for $22 and let me tell you, Julia is a lot better than the lame product pic they’ve got here.

Super Creative Yes We Can T-Shirt

Update: I’m thrilled to say I’ve licensed this design form Laura and am now selling in the Tcritic store.

Love love love this Yes We Can T-Shirt, lovely Obama/Warhol mashup. The shirt is currently sold out but they are considering another print run so send them a message if you want one, or leave a comment here.

New Artists Collaboration T-Shirts with Modern Amusement

I’m loving these T-Shirts from Modern Amusement, quirky, different, sophisticated, and yes expensive :-) but you know what, that just means you are not going to be running into every shmo with the same shirt as well. T-Shirts are getting like party dresses (a student from my blogging class started a blog about dresses and she’s posting some amazing stuff) in some ways, you don’t want to show up to the same event with the same T-Shirt as someone else :-)

They have a tonne of other gear as well, the site is kind of annoying to navigate but there is some great stuff in amongst the high minded flash design of the site. In some ways I just wish there was a long page with all the shirts on it, but I’m just a pragmatist, show me the shirts.

The inaugural collection features L.A based Eric Nyquist and Brooklyn’s Jonathan Cammisa who put their own unique twist on the brand’s trademark crow logo. Each season, Modern Amusement will add to the series by releasing a new design from a range of global designers.

Eric Nyquist merges industrial and organic in his detail drawings; with each one the viewer is forced to get up close to study overlooked details. While the details create complex imagery, they also reference an increasing dependence on technology and its ability to distribute information. Its interpretation of the Modern Amusement’s crow perfectly reflects his signature style (black tshirt below).

Jonathan Cammisa’s illustrations are dark, morbid and beautiful all at the same time. His design for Modern Amusement is as unsettling as a horror movie. Jonathan is currently looking to “expand his flannel collection and taking more hikes” and his representation of the x-ray of a smiling crow witnesses this mix of humour and darker inspirations

Pitch Your Product Through Girl In Your Shirt.com

This is an absolutely brilliant idea, if you have a company with a product and a T-Shirt (or any swag really) you can work with GirlInYourShirt.com to get the word out. She is not just a pretty face either, she’s got some savvy about the interweb, and she’ll pitch your product through GirlInYourShirt.com Twitter, Flickr, Youtube, Viddler, seesmic. This is obviously a paid service and i’ve no idea what they charge, but it could be a really cost effective way of getting the word out about something.

Who knew there was another business model for girl+webcam :-)

Oh and you can go and digg her here

Bailout This Package – by Print Liberation

Bailout This Package from the guys who brought us the excelent Under New Management T-Shirt, great job.

Twisted Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Friday the 13th Parody T-Shirt by Validus Apparel

LOL, I just got an email from the good folks at Validus Apparel and I immediately laughed at this Charlie Brown/Friday the 13th parody/mashup, wonderfully done :-)

They have cute stuff as well, it’s not all gore :-)

Retro Microsoft T-Shirts from Microsoft, Clothing Line Called Softwear

In what appears to be an attempt to get some retro charm, and harken back to the good old 80′s when Microsoft was cool… really. Well whatever, the shirts are kind of geeky and probably charming to some :-) Apparently this is part of the Crispin Porter & Bogusky advertising strategy to make PC’s cool again ala it’s “I’m a PC” campaign. Not a bad strategy, but IMHO Microsofts problems are beyond it’s image, everything is moving onto the cloud google’s web based applications are providing real alternatives to Microsofts cash cow, Office. Anyway, here are the shirts and they will be in stores December 15th, anyone provides some photos that I use of these shirts in the wild, or in stores I will send you a $25 Threadless GC, cheers.

You can read more about the background to this new clothing line on Ad Age and Cnet

first there was Keep Calm and Carry On and then there was Now Panic and Freak Out

The Keep Calm and Carry on T-shirt was wildly talked about from both myself and BoingBoing based on the poster on Neatorama wrote about.

Well now threadless has produced a parody “Now Panic And Freak Out” T-Shirt that I think is brilliant. Totally appropriate to wear to work if you think there are layoffs coming.

New 90′s Style T-Shirts from Kill The Label
