The Garfield Syndrome

Don't cut your wrists! Here's something to start chase them Monday blues away!

This is a t-shirt blog, where I chronicle stuff that are t-shirt-y in nature. Attus Apparel somewhat falls out of that jurisdiction (they're polo tees! oh my!) but a little deviation never hurt anyone.

If you're tired of seeing a laurel leaf or a crocodile on your polo tees Attus Apparel might have something for you. They are loud and snarky, the kind of logo your sainted mother would sternly advised against or disallow on the golf green.

Designs include The Hesher, The Jerk (nothing to do with Steve Martin) and me own personal favorite shown above, The Sid (RIP, you crazy punk bastard, you!)

Monies: US$54

And in other news...

I Love Waterloo has two new tees of The Who (above) and Trainspotting. And since this is a post about deviation, they also have short shorts for the ladies. Men are welcome to buy and wear it themselves.

Monies: US$24.95 (t-shirt) US$19.95

TheAnti has put out a new t-shirt (the maskman tee) by Noah Skillz from their contest where you can vote for your next favorite design. It's like American Idol but without an inebriated Paula.

Monies: US$15

Good Causes

We like to spread awareness for t-shirts and also for good causes. This post will cover both camps.

Africa Aid wants you to buy a t-shirt, which will feed an African refugee child for a whole school year.

You get to look chic, improve your karma and be a decent human being.

For more info, please visit Africa Aid.

Gods and Monsters

Two things greatly interest me. First is Chuck Palahniuk. The website that promotes him is selling official t-shirts for his tour for his new book, Rant.

On the back of the tee is the tour schedule and on the front is... what the hell is on the front?

Anyway, check out Palahniuk's tour schedule and get a t-shirt to show your unsavory devotion to the man who wrote Fight Club.

Second thing that interest me are Superfantastic Japanese monsters that tear up Tokyo for entertainment! O Cotton Factory, is there anything you won't sell?


Monies: US$18 (Rant t-shirt), US$10 (Gigan t-shirt)

By the By...

Didja know that Tees My Body has a pre-Summer sale? They have t-shirts like Jheri-curl Yoda.

"BUY THEIR STUFF, YES YOU WILL!"

...

Yes. That was me doing Sam Jackson doing Yoda.

Love is Love is Love

Barak Hardley, who did this Threadless design, now armed with a singular vision, wants let you know about love. True love. The sort of love that is unconditional. The sort of place where you get free hugs.

The designs have Christian undertones to it without being to preachy. We like the Dove t-shirt and we would wear that sucker with pride because we like to spread the word.

What can I say? We're suckers for love.

Pinky is Dead

We like Huzzah Goods because a) we like saying "Huzzah" and b) they print out t-shirts like this.

That's right. According to certain people still living in their parents' basement, they purported that Pinky died and was replaced with a double.

Idiots.

And in other news in Huzzah Goods world, there's also a Image Stolen by Todd Goldman t-shirt.* The mind boggles when one asks if stealing somebody's schtick of stealing other people's artwork be immoral if you're donating 100% of the t-shirt profits to the Boston Arts Academy?

Huzzah Goods also have a competition where you send in your coolest original Nintendo-theme design. If they choose yours, you get a free t-shirt of your choice. Send designs to mailbag [at] 4colorrebellion.com

Deadline is April 27.... uh-oh. Get to it.

Monies: US$16


* If you're not in the know about Todd Goldman, I shake my head at you and direct you to the whole sordid mess.

Chop Chop

I'm not a big fan of cosplaying. Every time I see someone in a costume and it's not Halloween, I want to bring a bat to their face.

But I make an exception for people who dresses according to Tron. Because they can glow in the dark, just like this t-shirt from Chop Shop. If the design and the nerd factor isn't enough to convince you about the t-shirt, at least buy it because it also shows the dog's cloaca as well.

The designs are created by Jay Hillyer and they look like the love children of Geoff Darrow and Seth Fisher's unnatural sexings.

If you can't tell by that last metaphor, that's a good thing.

Visit Chop Shop, check out the rest of their wares, play around with their header, and soak in the oily nerd vibe that the website gives out.

Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

I get an e-mail from Rote Raupe, a German site and from what I gather from the e-mail is that it's some sort of indie magazine that reports on bands and fashion.

They want to spread the word about their limited edition t-shirt projects, where every three months, a new designer creates a t-shirt.

The "Eat" t-shirt from Yackfou was the first and it's almost sold out. The latest t-shirt is "Home for Music" by Human Empire (seen above).

Monies: 20 Euros or around US$27

All the News that's Fit to Print

How does this happen? An e-mail from Sweden comes my way, I click the link (fingers crossed that its not another penis enlarger site) and arrived at T-Post.

I thought to myself, wow this is interesting: T-shirt designs based on news stories sent out every 6 weeks but you see, dear readers... silly old me thought this was something that had transpired only recently but lo and be-friggin-hold, I click on gallery and found out they have already sent out around 20 t-shirts!

Why didn't I pick up on this? Where was the news about it back then?

Monies: 26 Euros or US$32 per t-shirt. Shipping costs are included.

PS: The e-mail I received didn't have a message in the body. Just a PDF and photo attachment. According to their website, the latest t-shirt isn't shown and I can only speculate that the above image sent to me is the latest T-post.

Gee, I wonder what story does that design be about? Hmmm.

I Predict a Riot

I have a deeper appreciation for people who have fun doing what they like. You don't see much of that now.

Now a days, you get people stuck in the rat race. Stuck in the cubicle, the fluorescent light flickering out secret Morse for ways you can kill yourself. They stare blankly at the computer screen wishing for a better job, a fun job, not this soul-sucking environ, they are stuck in until retirement.

So it doesn't matter what line of work you're in. Whether it be a fast food joint or jacking off horses (for Science!) as long as you love it, carry on working / playing. These are the small joys you get in life.

And just like the friendly people at Sub Urban Riot, it seems like their unending joy is spilled onto the canvas of their t-shirts. You can see the fun in their fabric. Wear their happy. God knows, you need it for your next Casual Friday or summer vacation.

Monies: US$15 - US39

A T-Shirt A Day...

It's a great idea. Sell a different t-shirt everyday, and for only one day. Adding to the idea, the more t-shirts that are sold, the price for it drops.

It's a great idea... but does it actually work?

ShirtADay has been online for a while and according to an e-mail from them, they started off pretty strong and now they just want to spread the word out. The more customers there are, the cheaper the t-shirts would be. At the end of the day, they'll calculate the refund price and within 24 hours, transfer that balance to your bank account.

The t-shirts seem to be along the vein of Busted Tees and T-Shirt Freaks, in short, their demographic are catered to the college crowd.

Personally? The designs does seem to feel a little "seen-that-before." Who knows? Maybe in the near future, more discerning readers would vote for a t-shirt with weight.

Having a Bad Day? Wear This T-Shirt!

I watched 24 and after the first season the writer voice in me whines, "that's not realistic. When does he have a toilet break?" And I replied, "it's Jack Bauer, son. Dude's tough. He don't need to piss." Of course, I replied in the fashion of Samuel Jackson, which means it'll border upon being really really loud. And black.

Did I just commit a Don Imus? Anyway...

Nerdy Shirts, which I did an entry for, waaay back when, came up with this gem of a t-shirt for 24 fanatics.

Now I'm just a-waiting for a Chloe t-shirt. Maybe with the phrase, "Wow-ee Chloe" or something, it's still in development.

Jewfro

I did a post about Einstein with an afro from Simple T-Shirt, situated in a Thailand. It was sold out at that time but it seems that they are bringing the design back. I'm getting mine, posthaste.

Now I'm just waiting for that very same image of Einstein spliced with Gene Simmons t-shirt to come out and I can die happy.

Monies: US$19.50 (I think according to them, shipping is included, but one can never tell with the iffy translation)

ISO50 t-shirts reminds me of those psychedelic disco t-shirts of the 70s, especially the Field Research t-shirt above but that's just probably me.

Be sure to check out their prints as well. Simply delectable.

Monies: US$21.99

Sidenote: The Jaunty Scamp's favorite t-shirt romp, [ 2 one 5 ]

Too Many Artists

[Im]perfect Articles hosts a smorgasbord of artists you can shake a very big stick at. They got Amy Chan; Christopher Davison; John Parot and Chris Uphues (above) among many many others.

I think Uphues' design is some sort of ancient Mandarin swearword involving feces. I should know, I'm Chinese*. Somewhat.

Anyway. This is a veritable buffet of beauty you can proudly wear. The tees are limited-edition, hand-dyed and hand screen-printed, which means supplies are running out.

Monies: US$30

Frogstomp

I don't know why but Josh Perkins wrote me an e-mail, asking me to write up something about his humble t-shirt site, Go Ape Shirts.

I mean, there are other capable sites that have expounded on the sheer profundity of the designs like existentialism in a jocular sense (Pillow Fight Club); commentary on evolution (Evolver) or one of his newest tees, on what is obviously a summation of Nietzsche's philosophy of the √úbermensch (Superfrog Found!)

Really. What can I add to the already glowing praise of Perkin's site?

It's Like "An Inconvenient Truth"... But On a T-Shirt

Kristy Zenk from Planet Truth wants to promote her environmental wares. These are not your run-of-the-mill "Save the Trees" t-shirts. According to Zenk, all her t-shirts are made from organic cotton that's pesticide-free and everything, from the manufacturing of the tees to the printing and selling of it are done in Australia. It costs a pretty penny but portion of the sales goes to charity.

These are t-shirts of stark truth. RECYCLE, DAMN YOU!!!

My favorite is the Debt Culture top for the ladies. It's a take on the public's need for consumption... but wait! Is it ironic, that this tee costs forty-five in dead presidents? I leave it to you, dear consumers, to figure it out.

Monies: US$46
