Space! Giant octopus! Yeticorn! Need I say more?
It’s gearing up to be review season at Loving This Tee, or at least I’m going to try to make it review season, seeing has how I haven’t had time to write them in a while and I have plenty of shirts to talk about. So let’s start things off with a sweet t-shirt from 604Republic called “Jeeves3000.” If the artwork style looks familiar, then you may not be surprised to hear that it’s by Alex Solis (alexmdc). Can I just say that he’s a fantastic illustrator? Because he is.
Let me give you the lowdown on 604Republic. It’s a Canadian company started by a former co-founder of Split Reason, a popular t-shirt shop for geeks and gamers. When it launched in September, 604Republic’s mission was to be the best and biggest place to buy art hoodies. Things have changed in the past few months, as 604Republic is now a place for geeks and is focusing on pop culture from here on out.
“Jeeves3000” is one of the shirts from the very first 604Republic release, so that’s why it’s not more pop based. It’s actually my favorite design out of all the ones available right now, which makes it quite a treat for me to review! Read the rest of this entry »
Say hello to a new hoodie at Tilteed! Expansion by Sven Palmowski (a.mar.illo), one of the winning designs from Tilteed’s launch contest, is now available as a zip-up sweatshirt. Unlike Wotto’s Dead Head hoodie released last month, the Expansion hoodie has the design sitting on the front, going right over the zipper. For now, there’s only a mock-up of what the print will look like, but I bet it’s going to be a cool design to see split into two when unzipped.
This design is being printed on a black American Apparel Flex Fleece hoodie, one of my favorites on the market. I have several of these hoodies in various colors and they’re very soft, warm, and perfect for layering in the wintertime. As noted in the product summary, the drawstrings will actually be white. I think that’ll look even better, as they’ll match the design.
The Expansion hoodie is on pre-order at Tilteed until noon Pacific Time tomorrow (12/10/10) with special introductory price of $32. After that, it will enter the permanent shop catalog and be offered for $39. Take an additional $2 off with the code “LovingThisTee.” Now’s the time to pick one up and save quite a bit!
I finally got some time to check out the happenings of the t-shirt world, so this news is coming kind of late today, but Fur Face Boy has just recently released a shirt to benefit Locks of Love. The design is called “Locks of Fur Face Boy,” and only 25 of these shirts were made.
I hate cold weather, but what I do love about winter is that I get to wear lots and lots of layers. I love t-shirts, but hoodies and jackets are pretty great too. And if I don’t need to drive anywhere, snow is also quite beautiful (and fun to play in). Looks like Old Man Winter loves everything about winter, including the cold. Even without all the layers, he remains jolly in the freezing temperatures. I bet it’s a magical onesie that he’s wearing. Hmm, now I want one of those…
