If you want an indie t-shirt, go straight to the source. Here’s a designer out of Manchester, New Hampshire, Alex Dakoulas. New Hampshire, is of course the red neck cousin of vermont. Amazing how two states, geographically equivilent in so many ways, ended up with such polar opposite cultures. The crunchy, sandle wearing, tie die wearing vermonters, and the big fucking truck driving, trucker hat wearing, gun toting New Hampshire-ites.
A true tcritic original inspired by the Colbert Report. Get them before Fox gets me
Comes in white, pink, blue, and pebble, regular, fitted, babydoll, and youth S,M,L, XL, and I even purchased the EPS of the foxnews logo so it’ll be nice and sharp, not like one ripped off their web site.
Ok, so the whole Italia thing is obviously a popular T-shirt after the world cup, but the reason for this photo is to honor a super awesome bar tender in San Francisco who gave me and my friend Paul a tonne of local information about where the cool places are to hang out, and i’m going to share that here (i’m transcribing here notes on a guest check so I might have misinterpreted some stuff)

Those amazing folks at teetonic are “best t-shirt company ever” this week These shirts came all the way from the UK and they are super sweet and very unique. I am particularly keen on the Hung Consumer graphic, being a product of consumer culture. We have over the years tried to make meaning through what we consume. With increasing access to creative tools though I feel we are on the cusp of a consumer revolution where we will make meaning through what we make and create.
Kung Fu Girl at goodstorm.com, not only a sweet design, but did you know goodstorm gives most of the profits to the artist? Seriously, if you want to create your own t-shirt store (and from the amount of emails I’m getting it seems like a lot of people are) then why wouldn’t you check them out. I created my own t-shirt that sucked there in no time at all, and they’ve got loads of options from budget T’s to heavyweight, and fitted t’s.
Gapingvoid is a hugely popular blog written by Hugh Macleod, who’s quirky cartoons on business cards are vaguely reminiscent of Gary Larsons the “far side”. Lots of geeky in jokes to be had here, and it certainly fall into Zefranks definition of cool. You can find all his shirts here.
I am in love with this t-shirt, it is a statement with great depth and irony on a t-shirt. Maybe it makes me vaklempt because I am not in love. It’s created by a London based design shop, who have taken their awesome design chops and put them to work on some shirts, my question is, how do we get them in the US.
