New T-Shirt Company Bruised Bear

covered in frogs

Bruised Bear is a new T-shirt company with a really whimsical and fun aesthetic. Reminds me a bit of Loyal Army, and that can’t be a bad thing. Thankfully the simple design has translated to their web site, I wish more t-shirt companies would make as good a use as these guys have of their front page. Much easier to see what they have for sale. Anyway, check them out, they look like fun stuff and the guys that run it sound very passionate about it. BTW I think the Moist shirt is probably my favorite.

Oh and thank you guys for the kind words, appreciate it.

“Before anything else, I wanted to thank you, actually. By following
t-shirt blogs like Tcritic and sites like Threadless, Design by
Humans, etc. it really made us believe we could go out there and
follow our dreams. Yea, this is a company, but we started this
because it’s close to our hearts and truly fun. So hopefully, you see
that translated in our designs and general aesthetic.”

BTW 1% of sales goes to save bears, someone needs to tell Colbert :)

Modern Warfare T-Shirts

These are as niche t-shirts as you’re going to find. Only a Modern Warfare player would understand the Akimbo 1887′s (which BTW only f’ing newbs would use :) I prefer the Barrett 50 Caliber and Akimbo Rangers :) Especially since the 1887′s have been nerfed with the latest update. Anyway, check them out on RedBubble.

T-Shirt War is an Amazing Stop Motion Video

T-Shirt War is a pretty cool stop motion animation done by changing T-Shirts. Check out the site where you can order some T-Shirts worn in the video, or you can just order replicas. Looks like they must have done a roaring business because the video’s been watched over 1.5M times. Love that they have the before and after graphics, very cool stuff.

This is also probably one of the best examples of using Youtube to merchandise something, and a great example of the collaboration between youtubers to create something unique and I expect quite profitable.
