I LOVE this Origami Fox T-Shirt by Square Thursday. You know what else love? The product shots. They’ve got awesome product shots. Seriously, awesome. Those models? Killer handsome. Check out all of the Square Thursday products, if only just to gawk at the hairy models.
In an alternate universe, Abraham Lincoln would not have been assassinated by John Wilkes Booth while watching Our American Cousin on April 14, 1865 at Ford’s Theater. Then again, if we lived in an alternate universe then maybe Abraham Lincoln could have shot back at Booth with laserbeams coming out of his eye balls while a bear-ish Teddy Roosevelt stomped repeatedly on Booth, making sure that his fur got into the deep crevices of his body.
This shirt has a lot of things going on, so let me walk you through it. First there’s a shark, then there’s a bear straddled on top of said shark. Bear is clutching a rifle while smoking a cigar. All the while, the bear has on a Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt. Not far away, there is an explosion, the kind of big explosion that Michael Bay loves to set off in his movies (see Transformers, Pearl Harbor, and Armageddon).
Can a shirt get any more epic than this? I’d sign a petition to have this shirt made into a movie. Someone, anyone, go get that petition started!
I always knew that Christopher Robin secretly wanted to strangle Winnie-the-Pooh. He is constantly getting his head stuck in that darn honey jar – I’d want to strangle him too! Glenn Jones of Glennz Tees took things to the next level and had Winnie-the-Pooh gutted, skinned and turned into a rug suitable for the den of anyone who takes issue with a honey addicted bear who doesn’t like to wear pants.
Our friends over at I Wear Your Shirt sent over a little goodie! Watch me as I unwrap this surprise gift from the guys that wear a different shirt every day!

Also, be sure to check out FubRub.com and let me know what they’re all about by leaving a comment below.
The Chef has released some new Pyknic tees, and guess what, this is just a “small collection” before the big summer line drops! Pretty neat. Of the notables include a Peta2 X Pyknic collaboration tee featuring Chef Barski, one of the Pyknic mascots. Peta2 is sort of an alternative animal rights groups that started in 2002 and grew from PETA.
Another thing you’ll notice is a lot of new Hippo logo tees in place of the classic Pyknic basket, knife and fork logo tees. I don’t think Pyknic is changing their logo by any means – instead I think they are simply expanding the use of regular characters in their line. My guess is that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the hippo and Chef Barski.
During the next few days I’ll be featuring the awesome clothing brands that will be setting up booths at Unique LA, an independent design and gift show that will take place on April 24th thru the 25th at the California Market Center.
To kick things off I’d like to feature a brand that was started in 2006 by California designer Chad Eaton called TIMBER! Every shirt featured at TIMBER! is designed and screen printed by Eaton (I love the dedication). This brand has one of the more unique design niches since TIMBER! is all about lumberjack culture.
“TIMBER! is a t-shirt company based on a story about lumberjacks, their bosses (the top hat guys with an excessive hair curse.) and a bigfoot stuck between both their worlds.”
Eaton is currently at work on a fully illustrated book based on the TIMBER! universe so be on the look out for that.Â TIMBER! tees are priced from $18 to $32 and you can purchase them over at their ETSY shop.
Facebook has pretty much become ubiquitous with having any type of presence on the web. If you’re a brand, have a website or sell stuff on the web then you probably have a Facebook Fan Page. Indie brand A Little Bit Weird has decided to use their Facebook page as something more than a dumping spot for their media. They have opened up a storefront on the fan page to compliment their main online shop.
I really think this is a great idea. I don’t think that I’ve seen any other indie brands selling their tees directly from within Facebook so this is quite a refreshing move by A Little Bit Weird. Go ahead and check out their page, below you’ll see two of my favorites from their shop, Father Time and Guys Bear, both of which are available for $24.
In the newest tee design from Glenn Jones, the panda takes the wrap. I have to say that In Disguise from Glennz Tees has a little Banksy infuseion. It might just be me, but when I see a panda holding a pistol I think of that mysterious British street artist. If you dig Banksy but prefer splashes of color over black and white then In Disguise might be the shirt for you. It’s available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.
