Arkaik Clothing Summer Release

The new summer line from Arkaik Clothing is pretty impressive to say the least. They continue to play on the dinosaur theme but have also infused new design elements by having guest artists like Greg Abbott contribute to the line. The new line includes an assortment of different colorways and also features a couple of tank tops and v-necks.

Prices for the new Arkaik Clothing shirts range from $24.99 to $34.99. One thing that I should note is that these tees are super limited. Many of them have a print run of under 20 and I saw one that had a print run of 4. You might also want to try the coupon code”COTY” for an additional 20% off!

Airdrop by Glennz Tees

I’ve been talking a lot about tees that bring back feelings of nostalgia (see NES Zapper post below) and the newest tee from Glennz Tees really hit my nostalgic soft spot. Airdop is yet another excellent design by Glenn Jones, how he comes up with these awesome ideas on a consistent basis amazes me. I need to pick up this shirt, dust out my vintage Game Boy and blow on my original Tetris cartridge and get my game on. That would be awesome. You guys can pick up this tee from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Bombs Away! by Dale Edwin Murray and available at Tilteed. Pros: Excellent four color print, vibrant colors, fun design, printed on an American Apparel blank so you know I love the it and feel. Shirts come with custom hangtags but mine was shipped before the tags arrived. Perfect shirt for the kid at heart or for those who like to drop bombs! Cons: Not tagless, plain mailer. Price: $18

Bombs Away by Dale Edwin Murray and available at Tilteed

Vince Vulcan by Cloxboy. Pros: If you swear by the Sham Wow then this is the shirt for you! Perfect mashup of two epic characters, the Vulcan Spock and Vince Shlomi. This shirt comes from the guys that brought us the iSteamPhone, Exploded360, and Exploded128. Soft print on an American Apparel blank, Cons: Not tagless. I kind of wish that the print was a tad larger. Price: $20.

Human Anatomy Patchwork

You’ll always find something when perusing Etsy, like this handmade patchwork human anatomy shirt! Man, was the second halfof that first sentence a mouthful. Like most other things at Etsy, this shirt is a DIY project done by Etsy member, takeahalliday. And according to the product page, it “is perfect for wearing with leggings, jeans, or if you’re really daring, by itself!” Interested? It’ll set you back a cool $70. I’m thinking that this is one of those “statement” shirts.

ZAP Exploded

The Exploded guys (that’s what I’m calling em’) have done it again! This time, they’ve deconstructed the original Nintendo Zapper for our geek pleasure. Designed by artist Garry Booth, this design brings us all the way back to the 80’s when Duck Hunt was a fresh faced phenom and not regulated to the used video game bin at the local video game store. 

Growing up I LOVED playing Duck Hunt if only because using a gun to shoot flying pixels resembling ducks on my TV screen was the closest I would get to duck hunting in Hawaii. 

This gem can be had from ZapExploded.com for $17.

NerdyShort #1 + Who Writes This Stuff?

What’s awesome about the first NerdyShirts NerdyShort is not necessarily the short itself, but the fact that it was shot entirely on an iPhone 3G S! How cool is that! I’m a fan of compact video making so I cannot wait to pick up and try out the new iPhone 3G S video features. My only wish was that it could shoot in HD ala the Flip Mino HD. Maybe in the next iteration? Maybe. 

Below NerdyShort #1 I’ve got the 3 NerdyShirt tees that are seen in this short film – Nerd, Free Hugs and Admiral Ackbar’s It’s A Trap Shirt. Each of those shirts are available for purchase at NerdyShirts for $19.95. 

Nerd

Free Hugs

It's A Trap

And finally from NerdyShirts I’ve got their newest tee, it’s called Who Writes This Stuff and is based on a shirt from the new Adam Sandler/Judd Apatow flick, Funny People. If you were this shirt I guarantee it will strike up conversation. Whether you want that or not, well, you decide! It’s available for presale now at NerdyShirts for $14.95.

The Formula Werks Fetish Series

We all have a fetish (or two), but are just too damn ashamed to admit them to the general public. My fetish? Well, I can’t get enough of T-Shirts (what I do with them behind closed doors is my secret).

If you have a passion for either toys, vinyl or kicks then Formula Werks has got you covered. These fetish inspired tees well let the world know about your fetish. Both the toys and vinyl tee were designed by Rotofugi and the Kicks tee was designed by Escape76. Each of these shirts are priced at $25 and are available now from Formula Werks.
