Che-Bacca – Should be a t-shirt


This isn’t a shirt yet but you can go vote for it at threadless.

Also, here’s an older image that is pretty cool as well, this should certainly be a t-shirt:


This design was apparently done over three years ago by a forum member here

Big up for boingboing and Charles the lawyer for emailing it to me

Ok, these guys totally rock, not just the one’s on the T-Shirt but the ones behind the shirt at Upper Playground. Not sure what this shirt is called, but it says aUP Men’s: Comedy on the page. Oh, and by the way if i’m not looking thrilled in this picture it’s because there’s a bunch of boxes in the background that need unpacking as i’m standing in my new apartment and it’s a freaking obstacle course right now. Anyway, here’s a close up of the shirt so you can see most of the characters

This is a freaking sweet T-Shirt that my friend Scott had worn to to work. It’s a T-Shirt to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Bombing of Hiroshima, the cool thing is he bought it in Hiroshima. It’s a great design and has some really nice details on it which is why I got him to pose in it. Notice the cool Shinobi game we have in the office :-) You can play it online here if you want to reminisce about Ninja games. Anyway, this gets filed in the Best T-Shirt Ever category along with the other best T-shirts Ever :-)

Everyday Hero – From Mister Shape

Everydayhero 01

Wow, thanks to everyone who’s been sending me links and pics of t-shirts, I’ve found such great stuff. Here’s a recent fave from Mister Shape, one t-shirt for the Everyday Hero’s, the ones who plug away tirelessly everyday, never asking for any recognition, just a couch and a plasma to practice their craft. We salute you everyday hero’s no matter what your playing :-)

The Life Aquatic – T-Shirt From Waterloo

Liveaquatic Waterloo 01

One of my favorite quirky movies is The Life Aquatic and this is a great T-shirt honoring it. Waterloo ( ilovewaterloo.com ) has pulled together all the elements that made that film great from the hat, to the boat (the Belafonte), to the amazing acoustic, Brazilian versions of classic Bowie songs by Seu Jorge (great soundtrack makes for very mellow background music).

The folks at waterloo have even created a coupon code for tcritic readers 10% off: Tcritic (and no it’s not an affiliate thing I’m not getting anything except maybe a free shirt hint hint :-)

Blog This from CrackSmokingShirts.com

Another t-shirt site with the requesite anchorman quotes etc. but they did have this gem which I have to send to my blogging friends :-)


Heavenly Devily from Invidualitees


Another nice design from Individualitees.com (I wrote about them once before about Sex On a Stick which was smoking hot :-) They really have got some great designs, and considering the company was started by two guys in two different countries via email, it looks a damn site better than most, and with a lot more original designs. As usual my only complaint is i there are no permalinks/deep-links for any of the designs, which is frustrating if your trying to link to favorites.

BTW I love their line of Sexualitees:

Keep up the good work guys and thanks for the nice note :-)
