I haven’t reviewed a t-shirt in an extremely long time, so I think it’s time to change that. Today I’ll be reviewing T-shirts.com and the shirt that I received.
With a generic site name like T-shirts.com, I figured that the shop would primarily house novelty tees. I was correct in that assumption. Because of this, I’d like to focus my review on the website more than the shirt that I received. It’s just not possible to generalize the shop by one shirt, since the shop offers many different designs printed on different blanks by different printers.
With that said, if you like novelty tees, then T-shirts.com is a great place to shop! They have everything from band shirts to movie shirts to sports shirts. They even carry a bunch of different animal shirts, some of which are even more ridiculous than the unforgettable “Three Wolf Moon” design.
And for those who aren’t big on novelty shirts like me, you’ll be happy to hear that there are some artsy designs to browse through in the “Artist Designed” category. These include pieces by artists like Walmazan, Tasha Chapman, and Terry Fan. Read the rest of this entry »
As you can see, I’ve taken quite the hiatus from blogging. And although I’m no longer in the tee game (it has been over a year since my last post!), I wanted to start blogging again just for funsies. One of my buddies Regan Smith Clarke recently released his summer line, and it’s pretty solid!
My favorite product from this new release has got to be Unlucky Rabbit. The caption on the product page says it all – “Blind luck doesn’t exist. Just ask the ‘Unlucky Rabbit.’ Work hard. Make your own luck.” I’m a firm believer that you’re the only person who can make things happen for yourself, so this t-shirt design definitely speaks to me.
If you like this design, go check out all the other new goodies in the Regan Smith Clarke shop too! And if you’re in the NYC area, be sure to check out Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn this weekend, where RSC will be a vendor!

Jon Knox. Does that name ring a bell? If your answer is synonymous to “no,” then we need to change that right now!
Jon Knox is an amazing artist based out of Portland, OR, who is most widely known for his handmade resin toys. But that’s not all that he does, though. Along with being an amazing toy sculptor and painter, he’s also a fantastic illustrator. His unique characters are like a species of their own, so distinct and full of personality. These characters exist in both cartoonish realms and realistic ones, with his portraits looking incredibly lifelike.
I remember my first encounter with Jon Knox’s artwork. It was a Threadless Select (the old Select line) tee called “Brat Party” that introduced me to Jon’s playful style. I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s my favorite Threadless tee of all time. It’s a shame that I no longer fit into the copy that I own without feeling self-conscious. Should have gone for a Guys Small and not the XS… Bah!
But you’re not here to read my t-shirt woes, are you? I didn’t think so. Let’s take a look at a much newer tee from Jon Knox’s shop. I picked up a shirt called “The Magician” from Jon’s shop when it was up for pre-order. I am kind of obsessed with heather grey tees at the moment, so I picked the grey shirt (there’s also a white option, as well as tank versions).
Ain’t it a beauty? Read the rest of this entry »
Dirty Dudes has recently released some new designs, including one that I really dig called “DD Sailor.” The graphics are so clean, and whereas I couldn’t see myself wearing this brand before, I now can. I love the vintage look of this new design and the muted color palette is perfect for the fall and winter seasons.
I’d like to bring in some cuteness this afternoon at Loving This Tee. And with that in mind, I present to you “Wolfe” from Crywolf Clothing. Crywolf Clothing is a Canadian company that is home to many unique products designed by Stephanie Drabik and Rose Chang. I love the aesthetics of the designs. Most of them are simple and they give me a nice calm feeling inside. If t-shirts can do that for me, then I’m definitely a big fan!
According to the little product description, Wolfe is a boy who likes to dress up and be one with the creatures of the forest. Although I’m not really known to wear cute t-shirt designs, I’d rock this shirt all the time! I love the forest details. The white trees are subtle but help to add a nice context for the dressed up kid.
If you know me personally, then you’ll know that I also have a big spot in my heart for designer toys. Although I had seen tons of works by eBoy for companies like Yahoo! and Coca Cola, I hadn’t heard of the name eBoy until I immersed myself in the toy world. Thanks to Kidrobot, I learned all about eBoy’s figures called Peecol. And from then on, I learned that they created the pixel art that I have always loved so much. Long story short, I love eBoy’s artwork. The style is so unique and distinct, and I am never disappointed by a work of theirs.
“Yacht Race” by eBoy is the first release from Fartookind!. It is available for $36 and is limited to only 55 copies. If you’re a fan of eBoy, then you definitely don’t want to miss your chance to pick it up! Summer’s the time to stock up on graphic t-shirts, and “Yacht Race” couldn’t be a more fitting design for this season.
Let me continue this simplistic design streak by showing you an awesome logo tee that I can’t get out of my head. “Big Drop” is one of the new graphic t-shirts found at Thriving Ink that I was surprised to see. Not only is it super simple, but I seriously think that it has magical powers that continuously draw me in. I guess you could call me crazy, but maybe you feel the same way too!
You can purchase “Big Drop” at Thriving Ink for $19.95. It’s printed on American Apparel Tri-Blend, meaning that it will be one insanely soft shirt that your torso will thank you for. There’s a seafoam colorway as well, if you prefer more color in your life.
Oh and while you’re at Thriving Ink’s shop, why don’t you check out the $15 Grab Bag deal that they have? For just $15, you can get 3 shirts from their previous line. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me, no?
