Loving This Tee

Archive for the ‘Product Review’ Category

If you can recall, I did a review of a laFraise tee a couple of months ago. Today I’ll be reviewing another laFraise design, “Lights Camera, Animals!

Let’s start off with the basics. The t-shirt came in a sealed, custom-printed plastic bag, along with washing instructions and a laFraise sticker. As you can see, the shirt inside also has a custom hang tag. You’ll definitely remember that you got this shirt from laFraise. There’s no question about that! Read the rest of this entry »

Gryphony just launched yesterday, so now I’m going to do a quick review of their first shirt. Gryphony is a new curated t-shirt site that will have a new design available every 72 hours. The package promises fun, so let’s see what’s inside! Read the rest of this entry »

Today I’ll be reviewing a t-shirt from Retro Campaigns featuring the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Now I don’t normally wear anything politics-related, but the “American Legends” line at Retro Campaigns caught my eye. I love the vintage look of the shirts from this line, so I’m very happy to get to check out one of them in person!

Abraham Lincoln, Retro CampaignsThe shirt came in a plastic bag with a Retro Campaigns button and hangtag. I like how the button was used to pin the custom hang tag to the inside tag of the shirt.

Abraham Lincoln, Retro CampaignsThis particular design is printed on an Alternative Apparel blank and it’s very soft. The material is thin compared to the standard American Apparel shirts and other major brands of ringspun cotton shirts on the market (Just to note: this Retro Campaigns shirt is 90% cotton and 10% polyester), but that’s a good thing. Not only does the shirt look vintage, but it also feels like a tee that has been broken in. Read the rest of this entry »

genetic, double helixToday I’m going to be doing a review of a shirt that I got from doubleHelix. DoubleHelix is a science inspired clothing company based in San Francisco, CA. When I first heard of the brand I was immediately drawn in by the nerdiness of its art direction.

genetic coding, genes, double helixGenetic Coding” is one of the nine designs available in the men’s section of the shop. There’s also a women’s version of this design, but the genetic coding is in pink instead of green. I’ve always had a soft spot for cool designs involving barcodes. This t-shirt design definitely looks great, and I love how the bright green pops out against the black. Read the rest of this entry »

Time to review another tee! A while back, I got a sweet package from Angry Spade. All their designs involve spades (makes sense, right?). I will be reviewing the army colorway of a design called “Spider Webs.”

Angry Spade, spider webThe shirt came in a clear sealed plastic bag, packaged with some stickers and a button. There was also a personal note inside with a coupon for all you fabulous readers. When you visit the Angry Spade shop, be sure to use the code “LOVINGTHISTEE” to take 15% off of any order (no expiry).

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.

604 Republic, robot, Alex Solis, alexmdcLet 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.

604Republic, robot, Alex Solis, alexmdcJeeves3000” 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 »

Huck Gee, skullheadNot too long ago, I received a special package from Huck Gee, an amazing designer and customizer in the art toy world. Huck has worked a great deal with Kidrobot and is one of my favorite toy designers of all time, so I was very excited to see all these goodies. I had won one of his online contests and was only expecting one t-shirt, but Huck surprised me with not one, not even two, but five awesome t-shirts from his shop. Not only were there t-shirts, but there were also some Skullhead decals and Art Hustle trading cards. Needless to say, my jaw dropped and I had to take a moment to calm down and pull myself together.

So in this edition of This Just In!, I’m going to be reviewing two of the t-shirts from this package. If you have heard of Huck Gee, then you probably know that he’s quite famous for his Skullhead character. On this character’s forehead is the kanji for “death.” What a charming guy, no?
