I’m not sure why, but whenever I need to spell the word “astronaut” I always initially want to spell it “astronaught.” Maybe I eat too much doughnuts? Wait, it’s donut. Shit. Anyway, this awesome tee by Katie Campbell is the perfect shirt for anyone with aspirations of exploring space or maybe just need, well, more space.
R u Reppin is the latest brand to enter the growing number of crowdsourcing T-Shirt sites. Members are allowed to submit designs which are then voted on by the R u Reppin Community. If your design wins to be printed on a tee, you will get $500 for each winning design and $2 for each t-shirt sold in the first 30 days and $1 for each t-shirt sold between 30 and 60 days.
R U Reppin currently has a collection of 17 T-Shirts. My favorite from the bunch was Done With Problems by Brazilian designer Matheus Lopes Castro (aka mathiole). You might remember mathiole as the designer of the iconic Colorblind T-Shirt from Threadless. R U Repping T-Shirts are available for sale for $19.97.
“R U Reppin is an online community of users that design, vote, and buy tees that are based around hip hop and the street lifestyle. When you sign up you become a representative of a cultural movement that allow you to post comments and critiques, download a tee template, and submit your designs in one of the many contests where you will have the chance to win some serious dough. Also, when you buy an R U Reppin tee, you are automatically doing your part in giving back to the community, where some of the proceeds help children of The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and other worthy causes that will help children develop and achieve their talents, creativity, and dreams.”
Check out this neat tee from Public Domain Clothing called Earth-Rise. Tired of the basic skeleton tee? Well, this one sort of the Sixth Sense of skeleton tees. It’s got a twist. They’ve fused a pair of astronauts and the planet earth to make on disturbing (and rather cool) skeleton tee. I dig.
Earth-Rise is available now from Public Domain Clothing for $25 and if you use the coupon code TAKE40 you can score 40% off your entire purchase.
This is an odd little tee from Phoenix, Arizona based Soul Fur Clothing. It looks almost as if it could be a doodle straight out some kids high school science notebook. I dig it. The shirt is named Rocket Man but I can’t really make out whether or not that is a monkey, cat or zombie in the astronaut helmet. Whatever it is, it looks damn scared to be in space.
Rocket Man comes printed on a 100% preshrunk cotton tee and is available now for the very affordable price of $10 at the Soul Fur online store.
It’s not every day that I get T-Shirt blog posting material from YouTube. In fact, this might be a first! I spotted this RadIsRad (short for Random Artistic Design) tee on one of Chris Cendana’s YouTube music videos. He posted a video of himself singing a cover of The Fray’s Never Say Never and at the beginning of the video he gives a shout out to RadIsRad while he sings the song in the RadIsRad Elliot shirt. Neato! Too bad I have absolutely zero singing ability or else I’d do the same. You can pick up Elliot from RadIsRad for $19.95.
If you Â haven’t heard of Chris Cendana be sure to check out his YouTube profile. He’s a filipino singer/songwriter and is one of those people that have become semi-famous via YouTube. He even released an album of original songs titled Waiting, that is available now on iTunes!
Holy kabonkers, I haven’t done one of these in what seems like forever. A vacation will do that! Luckily, I’m back and that means fresh episodes of Coty Loves Threadless for your viewing pleasure! This episode is a woozy so be sure to watch it. My Threadless Pick of the Week is The Homesick Cosmonaut by Jesse Lefkowitz because it features one lanky astronaut in outer space and he misses home!
Meteor Shower is the newest shirt from the brand designed solely by college students, ReThink Clothing. “Outer space has and always will be fascinating and full of mystery. With the discovery of dark matter, black holes, new galaxies and a ton of cool stuff these mysteries are unraveled. This shirt might also help unravel one more mystery, how astronauts (maybe some cosmonauts) stay clean in the final frontier.”
I should also note that this marks the first shirt from ReThink Clothing that features a printed inside neck label. The shirt comes in two colorways, purple and heather gray and is printed on an American Apparel blank. Both colorways are available now for $19.99 but you can save an additional 20% by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout and you can save even more if you use the coupon code “BACK” by August 24!
I really like the design of this particular shirt and prefer the purple colorway over the heather version. And I am super stoked that ReThink switched to tagless shirts and preferring to screenprint the neck label. Now, if only I could take a meteor shower for real. If you had the opportunity to fly out into space, would you go?
