All For Swinging You Around

I like the New Pornographers (go buy their latest album, Challengers, I command thee!) and ever since I watched the music video for All for Swinging You Around from their Electric Version album (buy this one too!) I've dabbled in skipping rope.

That's not to say I'm good at it. Often times I would smack myself in the groin or find myself asphyxiated (erotically, some might say).


Well, at least I'm not skipping with barb wires like this tee from Odd Hero.

Monies: US$37 or £27

50 Cent

Jason Cosper did a post about a verbal bullet proof vest t-shirt, I'm gonna ride on his coattails and do a literal bullet proof vest tee from Dynomighty Design though I don't recommend you wearing this in the hood. I mean, if you are, you might as well paint a bullseye on your chest.

Dürer Who Be Proud

It's about time that someone did a pleasing woodcut image for a t-shirt. Will appeal to the geeks and fans of old master prints. Oh, Chop Shop, can you do no wrong?

Terminator Infinity

In the future, robots will take over this world and they will be... rich.

I don't know why this t-shirt appeals to me. Maybe it's the image of robots emulating Dean Martin or something.

Monies: US$20

Selfish Jean

From the new single from Travis, comes Selfish Jean and the music video is interpreted by comedian, Demetri Martin and a couple of t-shirts.

Think of it as a striptease but with funny and good music.

What I Got - Sub Urban Riot

Hey kids! It's time for another t-shirt review! Jason Reed from Sub Urban Riot sent over a package.

Real innocuous-looking package until I turned it over.

You don't see that every package that comes my way, I thought to myself, this should be interesting, and lo and be-friggin'-hold, I was right. Look at what the package reveal.

The tee was wrapped in plastic. I don't know why but the thought that someone actually took time out to wrap their goods in plastic just struck me as professional.

The catalogue. Really nice to the touch. Especially when I'm flipping through the glossy pages. My fingers already feels sophisticated.

This just kills me. Not a sticker or a printed card. A matchbook. This is too awesome for words.

And finally we get to the meat of it- the t-shirt.

Usually, when you think soft, you think American Apparel but this material is even softer than AA. No exaggeration. The Sub Urban Riot crew describes their tees as "cloudsoft." That's right. It's so soft that they had to make up a name for it.

Attention is also paid to the cutting of the t-shirt. I dare say, this t-shirt not only made me look thinner but better as well! And speaking of well-tailored...

Take a look at the sewing of the sleeves...

... and the collar...

It's different and yet it doesn't distract.

I was expecting a t-shirt and I got a lot more than that. Personally, I like the design, I like the t-shirt, I like the extra swag that comes with it. You can see the effort in their work and that puts Sub Urban Riot a step ahead of all the other competition.

Highly recommended.

All apologies for the radio silence but I've been uprooting myself and locating myself to new lands. Flying has been a real bitch to me so far. All the planes I took were delayed, I was detained by immigration because my fingerprints don't match with their records and one of my luggage got lost in the transport.

I'm starting to hate flying.

On the other hand, the hip kids at Guerilla Pimp, decided to make flying more fun. Frequent flyers could use a little more fun.

Science Fiction/Double Feature

Sure you might boast of an errant lipstick on the collar or a smear of red on your cheek but nothing says "ladykiller" like 18 pairs of lips seductively beckoning you in for a smooch.

I grant you, it's an unusual concept by All Jelly No Toast and it sorta reminds me of Patricia Quinn's lips in the opening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Puttin' On the Ritz

I love Paper Root Clothing for putting this tee out. Love it.

Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da... Batman!

I like watching those cheesy episodes of the live-action Batman series. I love how Adam West in a bat costume, is able to deliver his lines with such straight-faced earnestness but most of all, I love the sound effects whenever he and the Boy Wonder gets into a tussle with the villain of the week.

Atomic Madhouse sells these t-shirts of delight. Now when I punch people, they can see my t-shirt with their one good eye how the impact of my fist meeting their face sounds like.

Monies: US$30

The Horrors

So, I'm taking in the sights at Haji Lane and I wandered into this quaint little store called MONO+MACHINE and they sell some pretty impressive stuff like their lineup, Propaganda Machine, which they claimed is, and I quote, "Made in mutha fuckin' Singapore."

What I like about them is that they don't mince words when it comes to "that $100 tee that you just spent your hard earn cash on juz becoz some stoopid rag told u it was cool to own one."

And on top of the message behind their t-shirt, I also dig the design.

Singaporeans or people visiting Singapore can visit 45a Haji Lane. The rest of you lot can e-mail MONO+MACHINE at this addy: [at] pacific [dot] net [dot] sg

Monies: US$20 or SGD 29.90

PS: The Propaganda Machine site is down. Try their blog instead.

Tricks are for Whores

I don't usually post about sites like Busted Tees and such. No offense but I find some of their t-shirts a little geared towards the frat mentality.

So, I think I'm gonna get some flak for this post but I love Arrested Development and... well, this t-shirt from Threadpit just did it for me.

T-Shirt Neckin'

You can pop a collar with your polo tee (although you're liable to get punch by the anti-douchebag patrol) but what can you do with the neckline of your t-shirt?

You got your bling t-shirt, you got your often seen headphones t-shirt and you got your done to death camera t-shirt.

But I betcha didn't have a t-shirt of a sloth hanging off your neckline, right?

Only for the Gaiman-Phile

Now, I'd understand if I buy a book that's related to the author but to buy a t-shirt? Of course, I did a post about a Chuck Palahniuk's t-shirt for his book tour but Neil Gaiman (another one of my favorite) has a one from Never Wear (a pun from one of his books) that's all about him.

It has an animed Gaiman and the words "Scary Trousers" printed beneath. Why "Scary Trousers"? 'Cause that's his nickname by Alan Moore. How did it come about? Well, watch the video.

Monies: US$30

Just a word of caution. As you can make out from the t-shirt above, it looks like it's fitted for a woman. I've checked the website and there doesn't seem to be a t-shirt of a man or maybe the t-shirt itself is unisex.

Just a reminder to 80% of my readers. Some might say, it's offensive but I say you buy it and own the word.

Up next, I think "Chink" will be printed soon.
