I’m not sure if I’ve seen these guys before, but i’m super impressed with their site and how they differentiate their T-Shirts from a lot of other companies. HAHA only creates 200 of each design they create which is nice, it means you get a more unique shirt and they don’t saturate the market. Their designs are really well executed and would look good dressed up or down.
Love this Super Soaker design from ReThink clothing, too much fun. It also gives me the excuse to show this totally awesomely bad advertisement for the goo version of the Super Soaker called the Oozinator. File this under the “what were they thinking” category.
Anyway, ReThink is a pretty cool T-Shirt company that exclusively licenses designs from college students around the country.
Rethink Clothing is a fresh company with intentions of mixing up the clothing world. The premise is simple, great shirts from college designers. Yeah, that is right college designers. Not only are they from colleges across the nation, the profits go to college artists or any college or grad student who submits a great design. Rethink is in the opening phases and is currently looking for designs/artists.
Patagonia is one of my favorite companies in the world, seriously, they totally rock, amazing quality, great attitude, great service. I’ve bought a fair amount of outdoor gear from them for snowboarding and hiking and it’s always super well made stuff. Anyway, now their doing a line of organic cotton T-Shirts.
Our T-shirts are made with 100% organic cotton and are garment-washed for softness. They’re built to last with taped shoulder seams and double-stitched sleeves and hem. Our surf tees (shown above) have a slim fit and feature the artwork of Geoff McFetridge. All Patagonia organic T-shirts are recyclable through our Common Threads Recycling Program é─ý sends us yours when it’s no longer wearable.
The iShirt is the perfect accessory for all you iPeople and iKids on the go with your iPods. Probably good for stashing pot as well Available for boys and girls, comes in black, white and orange, costs about 35 euros, looks like it ships from Germany.
This smart shirt has been specially designed to carry mobile phones and iPods in an elastic and safe pocket. The sporty cut and highly functional fabric with moisture management render this shirt a real high-tech product. Includes a special loop for fixing the line.
Tommy Johnson was an influential delta blues singer who lived between 1896 and 1956. Anyway, as with many blues legends his influence was not really appreciated until many years later. The story is that the road to his grave site has disappeared over the years so there is no way to get to his grave to place the headstone or to allow visitors/pilgrims easy access. Anyway, the foundation is selling t-shirts to try and raise money to get the headstone placed and the road reclaimed. Anyway, they don’t have online ordering or anything but if you go to the foundation page and email or call their phone number tell them you want a shirt i’m sure they’ll sort it out.
and here’s the gory details from the press release.
TOMMY JOHNSON FAMILY DENIED RIGHT TO PLACE HEADSTONE
THREE YEARS AFTER DEDICATION. —- MISSISSIPPI TOUT$ BLUES HERITAGE BUT TAKES NO ACTION TO AID FAMILY.
Three years after The Mount Zion Memorial Fund and the family of Tommy Johnson unveiled a headstone memorial in Crystal Springs, in 2001, the 600 lb., beautifully engraved, granite slab still sits in the Crystal Springs Library, miles from the cemetery where Johnson is buried.
The Copiah County Board of Supervisors, charged by law with maintaining the Warm Springs Methodist Cemetery because of its official historic status, has denied all access to the cemetery where dozens of African American gravesites are located, by refusing to reclaim a road which was “given” to a local farmer under dubious legal circumstances.
For the last three years the Mount Zion Memorial Fund has worked with Vera Johnson Collins, Tommy Johnsoné─˘s niece, through a series of legal roadblocks and delays and the State of Mississippi, fully aware of the situation, has done absolutely nothing.
The “Year of the Blues” has come and gone, and the Tommy Johnson Memorial, paid for by Ms. Bonnie Raitt, has remained on display at the Public Library, in mute testimony to the true history of Mississippié─˘s racial nullification, failure and neglect.
The Mount Zion Memorial Fund and the family of Tommy Johnson is asking that any and all groups or individuals who would like to support the effort to place Tommy Johnsoné─˘s headstone on his grave and to re-open this historic cemetery please write Governor Haley Barbour at P.O. Box 139 Jackson, MS 39205
And demand that the State of Mississippi intervene immediately to correct this moral wrong and to finally do something honorable to get right with the Blues.

“To die, to be really dead… that must be glorious” Maybe because I am alone for valentines day, and maybe because I’m attracted to goth girls, but somehow this t-shirt seems appropriate today. Of course “goth” was the equivalent of Emo when I was growing up, and as someone who grew up in the UK The Smiths and The Cure were a big part of the culture. BTW the store you buy this t-shirt from is called the Sarcophagus Store, what fun.
Now this is a really great design, it may be political in it’s aims but it also expresses the feelings of many consumers when they’re standing at the pump filling up. The shirt is called Petrolcide and is screen printed on cotton, and is made sweatshop free, in the US. Apparently they also have it on hoodies if you are keen on hiding your arms
For all those folks lucky enough to get a wii this Christmas here’s an aptly, although a little broadly named the Tii Shirt. Looks like it’s from a new company called See Colon Slash, although thankfully it’s printed on nice American Apparel (although what isn’t these days), and as it’s in preorder right now they must be doing some decent printing. Kind of like the unofficial t-shirt of WiiHaveAProblem.com.
