Like Seriously Uber Cute Foxes

Oh why hello brand spanking new Greg Abbott print at Tilteed! Foxes is the latest limited edition print from our pals at Tilteed and you have less than 2 days to score this T-Shirt at the pre-sale price of $12. I must admit that I really dig the colors of this particular tee. It screams Fall even though we’re headed right into the dark and cold days of Winter. And by the way, did you notice those cute foxes? I think that they just might be a tad cuter than those fennec foxes playing in the video below. A pet that looks as if it’s part dog, plays as if it’s a cat and has facial features like an anime character MUST be full of WIN. Like this T-Shirt.

Foxes by Greg Abbott is available now at Tilteed for $12 but use the coupon code TILTCOTY at checkout and score $2 off!

Calling Dungeons & Dragons Fans: Go Gnolls

Apparently, this girl plays Dungeons & Dragons and also is a ninja. What a combination. I’ve never played Dungeons & Dragons. Ever. Is it any good?

So what’s a gnoll? If you’re not hip to Dungeons & Dragons ling (like me) then let me provide you with some gnoll insight, courtesy of Wikipedia.

“In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, gnolls greatly resemble humanoid hyenas. They are usually between seven and eight feet tall, weighing around 250 to 320 pounds, and use armor made of horn, metal, or leather. Gnolls are generally depicted in the game world as feral nomads who kill and pillage without warning. Their whole bodies are covered in reddish-brown fur which becomes shorter as it surrounds their faces and clawed hands to reveal grey colored skin. Their pelts vary from mono-colored to spotted and their eyes are either yellow or black.”

Go Gnoll was designed by Lee Bretschneider and is available now from his online store, Adventuring Company, for $18.

And this is a real gnoll:

Co-Tee TV Episode 76: Electric Oceans D&A, Akumu Ink and Bats

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear the Trident Logo Tee from Electric Oceans and review Starved by Akumu Ink, a brand that was started in 2008 and is based in Canada. The Akumu Ink team consists of Joey the illustrator/designer and printer, and Dora who takes care of customer service and all the business side of things. If you love horror with a nightmarish twist, in the style of Alfred Hitchcock and Tim Burton, then Akumu Ink is definitely worth checking out.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Starved by Akumu Ink. Pros: The included cardboard was a nice touch to keep the packagage flat and rigid. The custom Akumu Ink was the neatest tag I’ve ever seen! It was fully customized to look like a morgue tag and even featured my name (as the name of the deceased) and had my place and reason of death (which incidentally was starvation, which is also the name of the T-Shirt). They did an excellent job at extending their theme to their custom hang tag. I absolutely love the design, it is very much reminiscent of vintage Hitchcockian imagery. All T-Shirts are printed in house by Akumu Ink co-founder, Joey. The print itself is soft to the touch and very comfortable when worn, despite being a very large print (it doesn’t weight the T-Shirt down one bit). Cons: My only criticism is that I wish that they would have removed the original neck tag, especially since they sewed in their own custom neck tag. Other than that minor detail, I love the T-Shirt! Price: $21.99.

“The name Akumu is Japanese for Nightmare. We love taking the concept of creating hand drawn images based on our nightmares. As the brand has grown over the last few years our artistic style has evolved into this nightmarish scratch board look. Past designs can be found in our RIP section.”

Trident by Electric Oceans D&A. Pros: I love that Electric Oceans made the effort to package the T-Shirt in a separate plastic bag from the plain manilla opener – it helps to guard against mishaps during shipment. Trident is also tagless and instead features a screen printed neck label instead, which is always nice. The T-Shirt itself is nice and soft, though it is on the shorter end when compared to your typical American Apparel blank. The ink print is slightly on the heavier end, but because it’s text you can’t really tell. Excellent price point. Cons: The T-Shirt packaging is a little bit of a miss for me. The shirt itself is individually packaged in its own plastic bag to protect it during shipment but the outer mailer is just a simple document type manila envelope. If you’ve got a sexy tee then you’ve got to be sure that the packaging is somewhat sexy as well. The included business cards seem a little generic, they don’t include the Electric Oceans logo and the graphic doesn’t seem to reflect the brand. Price: $12.

Co-Tee TV Episode 75: Raglans, Random Objects and Pigeons

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear FFB Raglan by Fur Face Boy and review Random Objects by Random Objects, a New York based brand that draws inspiration from quotes and proverbs. PS: This episode was supposed to be uploaded a while back, so some of the things that I talk about might seem … a bit dated :)

“Quotes and proverbs inspire all of our designs here at RANDOM OBJECTS. They are the common theme that run throughout all of our t-shirts and products. We take these various quotes and proverbs and interpret them visually. Sometimes the quote [proverb or saying] itself is the graphic; while at other times, they inspire us to design a graphic based around its’ meaning.”

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Origami Pigeon by Random Objects. Pros: I love the fact the brand is called Random Objects and that every shirt comes packaged with a … random object! My random objects was a pair of black pencils packaged in chop stick sleeves. So cool! The shirt itself featured the standard American Apparel white blank, which was comfy as always. The T-Shirt comes packaged in a clear plastic bag, which is a nice touch especially when the shirt is being shipped cross country. The T-Shirt is tagless and features a very large screen printed neck label instead. The T-Shirt graphic is awesome (i’ve always loved this design) and the print itself is quite soft. Cons: The only thing that I didn’t care for was the small Random Objects print right below the graphic on the front of the shirt. I the design could have gone without that. Price: $20 but use coupon code RANDOMOBJ at checkout for an extra 10% off your entire order.

“Pigeons are probably the most courageous birds in the world! They will walk through crowded city streets without fear, and will trot in front of oncoming traffic without hesitation. They’re everywhere… even on your shirt!”

FFB Raglan by Fur Face Boy. Pros: Another excellent product from our friends at Fur Face Boy, this time, a Raglan tee. I’m a big fan of baseball style cut T-Shirts and so the FFB Raglan was a pleasant surprise in a box that was filled with FFB T-Shirts. My favorite part about this shirt is that it features the number 81, which coincidently, was the year that I was born. There are only a few left so be sure to grab them while you still can. Price: $34.

Follow The White Rabbit

Follow is a great little gem that I discovered while perusing The Orphan’s Arms online shop. This London based purveyor of T-Shirts hand prints each item. I’ve always been interested in the work of people that hand print items, one at a time and often in their own studio or even garage. With hand printed items, no two T-Shirts are ever the same. But even better, hand printed shirts simply oooze love, passion and dedication that you don’t get from T-Shirts printed on a five-color machine press with robotic arms in some warehouse in Austin, Texas.

Sometimes, elbow grease make a T-Shirt that much better.

Follow is available now from The Orphan’s Arm for £32.

Co-Tee TV Episode 73: Play Ball, Verde Styles and The Last Flight

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear Play Ball by Fur Face Boy and review The Last Flight by Verde Styles, a brand that is doing its part in the world by delivering a line of meaningful products that carry with them the message of “change.”

Verde Styles is also in the running for a huge $25,000 prize in the Pepsi Refresh Everything Good Idea campaign. You can help out Verde Styles by Liking their idea here. They are currently ranked #11 Their goals are:

  • Have an apparel line of over 25 environmentally friendly products
  • Plant 3,000 more trees through our current partner – American Forests
  • Host 20 recycling drives around the nation
  • Initiate 5 park and beach clean-ups
  • Partner with multiple charities that represent various causes

Coty’s Thoughts:

The Last Flight by Verde Styles. Pros: Each T-Shirt from Verde Style is environmentally conscious and tells the story of a specific environmental cause. This tee specifically brings to light the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and its effect on ocean animals. The design is printed on an American Apparel tee, mainly because Verde Styles appreciates that it is made sweat shop free. T-Shirt is available in both mens and womens fitted styles so that means girls aren’t left with a unisex tee intended for guys. The best part about Verde Styles is that for each T-Shirt sold, a tree is planted via American Forests. Great T-Shirt for anyone that is concerned about the environment and would like to help out while receiving an awesome shirt at the same time. Cons: I think that Verde Styles could do a little more to make the packaging a little more presentable. Maybe get a little creative with the packaging and run with the recycling theme somehow. Price: $15.99.

“Verde Styles is a clothing line centered on the idea of improving our living environment. The approach that we take as a clothing line is to produce visually appealing apparel by way of artistic design. All of our designs are meant to inspire growth as a society. The designs all stand for growing issues in the world today, whether it is global warming or deforestation. All of the global issues rest in the back of our mind when making a decision that will affect Verde Styles.”

FFB Play Ball by Fur Face Boy. I’m not the biggest baseball fan, so this Fur Face Boy tee doesn’t scream to me like the previous FFB tees reviewed here. However, it does come with all of the bells and whistles as the other tees in the Fur Face Boy Series III line – custom hang tags, custom neck and lower seam labels, printed on a comfy American Apparel tee, individually packaged with sexy FFB stickers.

Dark Raven: A Threadless Star Wars Parody

First of all, aren’t the Threadless releases this week just awesome?! When doing this post, It was a toss between Dark Raven and the Cookie Monster parody tee. I decided to go with Dark Raven because, heck, we can never have too many badass Star Wars parody tees. Right? Anyway, you better grab this one soon if you dig it because you never know if and when the intellectual property guys from LucasFilms will come a knocking. Remember Dark Side of the Garden by Glenn Jones? It was one of the most popular Threadless tees and it got yanked.

Dark Raven is available now from Threadless for $18. Dust off your lightsaber and go pick this one up now!

Speaking of lightsabers, did you know that 3 of the 10 most expensive Star Wars memorabilia items sold have been lightsabers? In 2001, Qui-Gon Jinn Lightsaber From Episode I: The Phantom Menace (top) sold for $54,000 (10th most expensive item). The Darth Vader Hero Lightsaber From The Empire Strikes Back (middle) sold for $100,000 in 2005 (5th most expensive item). And the 2nd most expensive Star Wars item sold was the Luke Skywalker Lightsaber From Star Wars: A New Hope (bottom), which went for a cool $170,000.

Lion For A Day

The mantra on this T-Shirt is definitely one to live by. As the renown Australian physical therapist, Elizabeth Kenny, once put it, “It is better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.” Be the master of your own domain. Don’t hide, be yourself. Let the world hear your inner roar and kick those sheep bleats to the curb [As a side note, did you know that “bleat is the proper verb that you should use when describing the sound that a sheep makes].

Random Objects delivers yet another solid tee. And if you’re keeping tabs, this is the second sheep reference made on a Random Objects tee and the fourth animal themed Random Objects shirt. Pretty random stat for you that I thought I’d throw out.

“Why go through life just following the herd when you can be as daring and bold as a lion. Sure it is easier to be like the majority of people and be told what to think and do, but to think for oneself takes courage. Stop following the flock and be a lion!”

Lion For A Day is printed on an American Apparel 2001 shirt and is available now from Random Objects for $20 but you can save 10% off your entire order by sing the code “RANDOMOBJ” at checkout.

Fuzzy Ink Summer 2010 Release

Our friends over at Fuzzy Ink has quietly released their new Summer 2010 line of tees featuring new styles for both guys and gals! The line continues on with the Fuzzy Ink tradition of being fun, vibrant, and full of facial hair. My favorite from the bunch has got to be The Duel, which is printed on the very soft American Apparel Tri-Blend T-Shirt. The product descriptions says it all:

“Enraged by a small traffic violation and perhaps the absence of a loving mother, the two sharply dressed men decided to engage in a serious game of ‘kill one another’…”

The new Fuzzy Ink tees are priced at $21 and the v-necks are priced slightly higher at $26, but whatever you do, remember to use the coupon code “Hawaii” at checkout to score an additional 10% off your entire order!
