"If It Doesn't Fit, You Must Acquit"

With all the brouhaha about FOX optioning OJ Simpson's book and interview, then canceling them for being, "an ill-advised project" (no shit), I thought I showcase some OJ-related tees. Some might say it's distasteful but I like to think of it as topical.

DURKL isn't afraid to call OJ for what he is: that he's a lady killer. This t-shirt will attract the ladies as much as the Sex Panther cologne.

Monies: US$18.99

Is this t-shirt still relevant now that OJ is not in jail?

Monies: US$38

NoiseBot offers a public service announcement to switch your dietary supplement from oranges to apples. It also comes as a hoodie or a fashionable tote bag.

Monies: US$19.95 (t-shirt) US$29.95 (hoodie) US$14.95 (tote bag)

Um, it's okay. I don't really want to know how you would kill him. And no, I wouldn't even buy your book on how you would "supposedly" kill him.

Monies: US$14.99 - US$19.99

One last t-shirt to round this up. If OJ were to find some other revenue for income, maybe he should try the t-shirt business.

Monies: US$18

Round One... Fight!

I bet people laughed their asses off when they first saw the Blue Oyster Cult sketch featuring Christopher Walken. Riding the pop culture wave is the More Cowbell t-shirt from Busted Tees then, as time passes, Toasty Tees decided, enough was enough, and released the No More Cowbell tee.

So, I'm curious. Consider this an experiment but which one do you, gentle readers, prefer? More Cowbell? Or No More Cowbell?

Monies: More Cowbell (US$17.99) No More Cowbell (US$15.99 - US$20.99)

More cowbell or no more cowbell?
I've got a fever... and the only cure, is more cowbell.
Enough with the damn cowbell! It wasn't funny after the tenth viewing.

Take This Job...

I don't think I was ever cut out to be the sort of guy who would wear and tie and sit in a cubicle 24/7. I've heard the dissent from friends who complain about their dead-beat job. So, you be the friend and be accommodating but after the fifth hour of them telling you that the "TPS report is still not finished because my boss is a dick" woebegone tale, you wonder why if these people hate their job so much, why don't they just quit?

Sorry, I was just reminiscing after I received an e-mail from a Joshua Kamler, who used to worked in the corporate world but has since left. As a result, he devised Corporate Hack and gathered all the corporate jargon and made them into t-shirts, like the one above.

Wouldn't it be fun to wear one on Casual Friday?

Monies: US$8.35 - US$14.40

Hip Hip Huzzah!

I was looking into Child's Play (donate, damn you! It's for a good cause!) and I came across Huzzah Goods. They sell t-shirts (like my favorite cross-section of the Nintendo controller) that are video game-centric. All tees are on sale and for every tee you buy from them, 10% goes to Child's Play.

Think about that. You get to look gamer chic and not be a heartless bastard.

How... Do You Do?

John Van Hamersveld designed many iconic pop art during the sixties and seventies, which if you do remember the time, you weren't really there.

Worn Free hosts many of the art Hamersveld created for music legends like John Lennon (Working Class Hero), Joey Ramon (Punk Magazine) and Gram Parsons (The Flying Buritto Bros)

There's also Hamersveld's Native American, which I like, that started out as a humble poster, then turned into a gig poster for Jefferson Airplane and now, it becomes a t-shirt. The original poster was given to another pop artist, Andy Warhol and now hangs in the Warhol Foundation Archive.

Monies: US$40

I Thought What I Do Was, I'd Pretend I Was One of Those Deaf-Mutes

Terratag, who has a fetish for mecha, also designed the logo for the Ghost in the Shell series antagonist "The Laughing Man." Well, more specifically, Paul Nicholson, of Terratag designed it. Unlike previous t-shirts that were produced with an iron-on, tees from Terratag comes as a flock transfer. And what makes this even sweeter is that each Laughing Man t-shirt comes in an exclusive Terratag T-Bag. Hoodies are sold too and those come in a Terratag Sweat Box.

£25 (t-shirts) £40 (hoodie) it's about a chicken and two tortoises when you convert it.

L'Eggo My Prego!

"You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment."
Dave Barry

I thought I do something different to day. The Prego tee is one of many fashion designed by Kristen Scully catered toward pregnant women. T-shirts are made of modal with lycra material, which still retains it softness without pilling or fading.

The perfect gift of the season for your pregnant wife who wants to state the obvious and the fat guy who wants to make an ironic / sad-but-true statement.

Something for the Stocking

Threadless is having a $10 holiday sale for 30 days.

Zach Braff has chosen t-shirt for the Last Kiss competition. I can really relate to the t-shirt because those damn machines can never give up the goods. It's a mini "rise-of-the-machines" insurgency.

You've Sunk Mah Battleship!

Not much is known about Lucha Workshop but they have really beautiful designs like the battleship t-shirt. None of that vector shit, we're talking about old school pencil sketching. Look at the raw intensity of it... that's just beautiful.

It's hand-screened with water based ink on an American Apparel.

Rik Catlow

I stumbled onto a random photo in flickr and I came upon this t-shirt, which you see above. It's sort of reminiscent of them tiki art. Those eyes that seem to bore through to you, scrutinizing your soul... YOUR SOUL!!! And it compels... do you hear it compels you... to buy him, to buy this work of art at US$19.

The designer, Rik Catlow is an urban pop artist, having lived near New York where he soaked up all the inspiration. He's muy talented and his original paintings are on sale as well. My favorite? Extra Lives, which the t-shit is based on.

"... Cause he had no body to go with!"

I always found it interesting to see anatomical designs on a t-shirt. It's like wearing something your skin keeps in. So here's some t-shirts that uses the rib-cage motif.

First up, the Misfits who popularizes the skeleton on tee concept. The Full Burnout Skeleton tee retails for US$20. Go get one and show Misfits your love.

At the other side of the rock spectrum is Letters Kills, a now defunct Christian band that sells Rib Cage tee. Well, it's half of a rib cage, which would explain why it's selling at US$5.99.

Smell Your Mum, which is a little like Hot Topic, only harder, sells a rib cage tee as well. It costs £12.99 and worldwide shipping is free.

Waffo sells a nice skeleton t-shirt that is similar to Misfit's own but Waffo's shirts are really soft... secret soft. It costs US$28.99 and it comes in black on green or a black on yellow. It's also printed on a jacket, which costs US$54.99.

Lazy Oaf has a tee called the Rib Tickler. It costs £25.

Threadless has reprinted Caged by Frank Barbara, a clever t-shirt that utilizes puns in its design. It's US$15 for guys, US$17 for girls, US$25 for long sleeve.

And now, we come to the progenitor of the anatomical tee, originally drawn by Dr. Leslie Arwin. Being a medical illustrator and anatomist, Dr. Arwin assures that all designs are 100% legit. Besides the skeleton motif, there's other designs like the intestinal tract motif as well. It retails for US$19.95.

Well, that about covers shirts with skeleton motifs. See you next time.

Beat Takeshi

Beat Takeshi or Takeshi Kitano is the Clint Eastwood of the East.

That was a very weird sentence I've just typed.


It's about time somebody did a t-shirt about the man who did films like Battle Royale and 2003's Zatoichi. And just when you think you've figured him out to be a badass, he's also the host of Takeshi's Castle or as it's known in America, MXC: Most Extreme Challenge.

The t-shirt for both man and woman, is printed by Salt Water Monkey, a clothing site, based in the Netherlands.

Made in Singapore

Dive Junkie encapsulates two things that I'm a fan of. One, diving-centric fashion and two, it's designed and made in the country I was born in.

It's a great idea for divers who come in from the sea and into a comfortable t-shirt while on land. My favorite is the pissy-looking porcupine fish with a very apt warning.

T-shirts are printed on 100% cotton, straight-cut material.

Monies: SGD24 or US$15.something something

Moustache Wears

Last post, I did was about November being National Novel Writing Month. What I didn't know about November is that it's also the "official" month for Movember members to grow out their 'stache. That's a sentence I never envisioned writing.

And like any organization, there would always be an official merch like the year 2000 t-shirt above, with their mascot, Colonel Boochie R. Blight. The tees go for US$25 each, stubble holders (for the beer) are US$10 each. It's US$30 for the two of them. All proceeds will go to a charity.

Selleck will be so proud.
