I Am Colin is a new brand out of the UK which has got some great new designs, I love the underpants and cross bones, that is just genius They have a distinct British accent to their humor and there are what you might call little Anglophilic easter eggs on their site and in their designs. From a design standpoint it really looks like these guys are paying attention to nice details and trying to build a brand. The shirts are going to be on the expensive side if you’re buying from the US as these guys are based in the UK and priced in pounds. Certainly the exchange rate has eased some of the pricing differences between the UK and US, but still.

I got a few sample shirts in the mail last week from Joshua at Cloth Moth, and I’ve got to say i’ve had a very positive experience with them so far. The shirts are very good quality and the prints are really nice screen prints, and as for the jokes i’ve had a lot of laughs and giggles from people. The thing I really like about the humor on Cloth Moth shirts is that they tend to be a slow burn, people have to think for a bit and then the penny drops, I think they get funnier over time the longer you live with them, which is rather unusual for T-Shirt humor which tends to immediately beat you over the head and then seem rather stupid a week later.
I’ve had a great reaction to The Shunning, it just seems to make people smile.
Not only do they have a nice selection of subtly humorous t-shirts they also have some baby onesies so if you are reproducing you should check them out as well.
Oh and if you want to lampoon all the Bloomingdale poseurs get yourself a Dangly Brown Sack
