Bucky Done Gun

One of the best Spaghetti Westerns is A Fistful of Dollars where we're introduced to a morally ambiguous Clint Eastwood. Sure the film was mirrored to Kurosawa's Yojimbo but it's a lot more cooler with guns. And people love guns.

So if you love guns so much, why don't you wear it then?

Designed by Sincerely Hogwash, get your Clint on at 5 & A Dime.

Blooming Bullets and Other News

I'll be fibbing if I say I haven't seen this idea been incorporated before like on Ban T-Shirts or on Progress Media but Artist Structure Apparel Depot manages to make this imagery fresh. Note the peace signs and the hazard warnings. Note the weapon is a luger, with it's long thin barrel to also resemble a stalk.

It's all in the minuteness of design.

Monies: US$15

Update: ASADepot offers readers 15% off their purchase. Type 15somanyshirts in their coupon code. Offer expires at the end of this month.

In other news...

Tokeworld is having a sale of 40% off. Sale last until February 19, after which new shit will arrive. Oh, and there's also free global shipping.

And new tank tops at I Love Waterloo. Something for the ladies.

The Master of Disaster

Disastore is controversial not only for their t-shirt designs but because of their ideals. They believe that disasters of all shapes and forms is a state of mind. They added that "disaster, coherentally with it's own philosophy, it's a project destined to failure."

This is not something I recommend you wear to the airport.

Regardless of the edgy content, Disastore ships their t-shirts in a beautiful-looking package with some added extras within.

Monies: US$23.23

Ling Ling Approves

You got to give it to Stereo Panda. Based in France, they've been pretty consistent with their panda-themed t-shirt designs. They're like the White Stripes or the Hives of t-shirts. They came up with a gimmick and they stuck with it.

Stereo Panda is also having a January clearance (up to 70% off) to make room for their new Spring/Summer line, a portion which is shown above.

Hot Topic of the Day is... Hot Topic

David Malki! (the exclamation denotes "this goes to eleven") posted a strip about the counterculture that is Hot Topic and the t-shirts they sell.

*Sorry about the size of the strip. It's much bigger over at Malki!'s site.


Roger Wilco

There's something rather odd about Roger Carter.

First off, they don't make a lick of sense. They're similar to those Japanese t-shirts with English writing on them like, "Forever Coconut Boy. Good Time!" accompanied with a picture of a duck.

That's how it feels when I visit Roger Carter but is there a method to their t-shirt madness like J'Adore Pop?

Heavens to Murgatroyd, I hope so.

Current t-shirts are printed on American Apparel. New ones will be printed on Alternative Apparel.

Monies: US$26

Threadless Find: Advisors

Threadless came up with a new line of tees and I particularly like Advisors. Stylistically, it works. Not many people will get it straight away but it works.

And then I came across another design. Same idea but Ole Ivar Rudi made it more interesting. You might know Rudi by his other well-known t-shirts like Mafia Groceries and Pillow Fight Club. In fact, if you take a look at his portfolio (here and here), the man can sell his own line of t-shirts.

Monies: US$15 (Advisors) US$15 (Mafia Groceries) US$18 (Pillow Fight Club)

See Christian Pout

Dirty Microbe released a new t-shirt that every blogger can identify. No, not your secret cache of Tijuana animal porn, I'm talking about the human need to make everybody give a damn about your opinion. This t-shirt will make a great gift for your blogger friend who especially TyPeS lIkE tHiS.

And to further convey your feeling for his/her blogging, with every two t-shirts you buy, you get a golden poo you can give them. That's right! A miniature turd that's made up of gold*!

They think it's a Japanese lucky charm... but we know better. All you have to do is type january-poo as the coupon code.

Monies: US$15

*not made of real gold.

Where Pigeon McNuggets Come From

Sure this design is tongue-in-cheek but what if, it's real? What if, somewhere out there, some deranged chef who's sharpening his knives hit upon an idea to present these disease bags with wings as delicacy?

And who knows? Maybe it'll taste scrumptious. And on top of that, statues will be poop-free.

The excellent No Gun Army is selling the Pigeon Butcher on Hanes and other tees like Zombunnies and Cats Are Cruel. For a similar tee like the above, may I introduce you to Eat By Numbers.

Mine's Old-timey Villian 'Stache

It's one thing to wear a t-shirt of quality but to see how it was made is something else. It's a better appreciation for the hard-working souls behind the product.

Facial Hairshirt on Vimeo

Through a video, we see how Chris Glass gets his idea out of his head, onto a piece of paper and finally onto a t-shirt. It's a marvel seeing the man work, adding cross-hatches to his art, all freehand.

And the t-shirt is a dandy too. There's even a little handy key at the bottom of the tee toward the seam.

T-shirts are printed on AA and 10% of the profits of Facial Hairshirt goes to Locks of Love. Pretty apt, I might say.

Monies: US$20

Can You Say "Freudian"?

"I'm Not a Malefactor, I'm a Lagomorph"

Who can forget Sam, the nonchalant suit-and-hat-wearing canine and Max, the hyperkinetic lagomorph, embarking on hilarious, surreal escapades that ends in our pants full of pee and our view that the world is a cold hard place, where a talking dog and insane rabbit, can cause so much misery. Side-splitting misery.

Telltale Games released the latest Sam & Max game and other merch like the Max & Crossbones tee that was unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con July 2006.

Monies: US$18.99

Dream On

My psychology professor, an aging white hippie, once remarked to me that he celebrates each MLK day by listening to the "I Have A Dream" speech. He would play the speech, all seventeen minutes of it, and he could hear each timbre, each rise and fall of his words, and feel the jostle of the crowd, a hint of electricity on his skin. Each time he hears that speech, he walks away, his beliefs reaffirmed that as long as millions dream the same dream, the world can make it a reality.

There are many t-shirts of the Civil Rights activist but I lean towards this Dream Big tee from political site, Ban T-Shirts because of its style. Dream Big is printed on Agent Apparel.

"All's Quiet on the Western Front"

Where am I, you ask? I've always been here but I'm a bit busy of late. Here's something to make up for it my pretties.
Negrete has a one week sale ending on January 19. We posted about them before and all their tees now goes at £18.95 like the Ali tee.

Kankatee has been around for a few months. They're like Threadless with indie sensibilities. Artists can upload their designs and because they're democratic like that, people who likes said design will vote for it. The inaugural tee When Bess Attacks design by, oh I'm assuming someone named Bess, is my favorite.

Tees retail for US$20 and shipping is free for US residents.

What is good design? The Osika Bros. at Artefacture would know. If you ask me, I say it's subjective like my poop paintings.

Tees goes for US$20 - US$30

Hope that makes up for not calling after the first date.

"Play the Funky Music, White Boy"

What struck me about this t-shirt from The Ryde is that in the Old Country, I used to run with this cat who played in a band. He played the harmonica and the accordion and had a set of cymbals between his knees. He played a mean tune when he's in the streets. Also, he shouts at cars.

The t-shirt comes in either brown or white .

Monies: US$28

Change the Thought Review

Hey kiddies! Here's another review, this time on Change the Thought.

Let's see... the order was placed on a Saturday and I received an e-mail that said it was sent out on a Wednesday. I received the tee on a Saturday, which is the reasonable amount of time it will take for a 3-5 day shipping.

Even though it's printed on AA, the tee felt really soft to the touch. I'm not sure if it's that "new shirt" feeling but hot damn... that's soft. The plastisol ink looks good too. It doesn't show on the inside of the tee.

Now here's my gripe.

I understand the practicality of a tagless t-shirt. For one, you don't have to paw at the tag like you're chasing off an imaginary bee but if you're gonna remove the tag, try to take it off completely. I know it's an anal issue but I'm sorta OCD when it comes to matters like this.

But other than that, Chris Cox did a bang up job with this tee. I'm looking forward to his new lineup.

James and Anita, over at I Love Sideline, introduced me to their wares. They have the renown designers to design their tees like Jon Burgerman and Rob Malpensa.

Burgerman does this insane doodles that I can only describe as "modern cubism" and some might know Italy's Malpensa who partook in a little project called "vsteejunkie" with Tee Junkie (it hasn't been updated in a long while, which begs the question... was he involved in, dum-dum-dum, foul play?)

I was attracted to Malpena's Music tee. Something about a furry critter rockin' out to his tunes.

"When Life Gives You a T-Rex, Go Ninja-Kick it in the Head."

The dudes at Least I Could Do webcomic decided to haymaker-styled the New Year by rolling out a new design for their apparel line, a short-sleeved tee and a long-sleeved one.

Buy it, wear it and be a walking anachronism. I think, you get to break some time travel rule.

Monies: US$16.95 (short-sleeved) US$19.95 (long-sleeved)

Sneakers Kinks

Sneakers was a movie staring Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier and a whole slew of other celebrities. It was always receiving flak but I like it. I guess people entered to watch it because they thought it was about the footwear industry.

And here's the segue.

D-Cent Clothing has a t-shirt designed by Georgina Vieane, who has a strange fixation on sneakers. Which is like saying one has a strange fixation for redheads or I have a strange fixation for auto erotic asphyxiation.

Don't you judge me.

Monies: 30€ or US$39.23

Not much is known about The Midnight Market but the Lego My Style t-shirt caught my eye.

I'm not pro-lego. I just like to see Bearbrick get pummeled.

Rime Time

I don't know about you but I had a wild night of New Year celebrations involving food, singing, trying to hit on a girl at a party and sleeping till the late afternoon. What a great start to the new year. Speaking of great starts, Kindred Clothiers, presented a preview of their new line up due out this month.

I'm eagerly awaiting The Rime of the Ancient Mariner tee because it enforces my belief that all albatrosses are better when they are alive, flying and pooping on the ship's deck.

Monies: US$24.95

Note: According to their webpage, they have a holiday special code "cousineddie" for US$5 off. I'm not sure if it's still in effect.
