Rocky’s Villains

First off, you should know that I am huge Rocky fan. My dad loves boxing, so growing up in the 80’s it was inevitable that I would watch the Rocky saga whenever humanly possibly. In fact, to this day, if Rocky is in marathon mode on either TNT or TBS, we watch it despite the fact that we own all of the movies on DVD.

And so it should be no surprise that I am quite fond of the latest Found Item Clothing original. It’s called Rocky’s Villains and is in the style of the popular Experimental Jetset tees. If this was any other tee, I’d probably hate the multi-colored typograhy. However, there is a reason to the colorful type madness and I can definitely appreciate it. If you’re confused then please refer to the photos below for reference.

Rocky’s Villains is printed on a white American Apparel T-Shirt and is now available from Found Item Clothing for $21.95.

Freedom Fighter + Manny Pacquiao

I’ve noticed a lot of up-and-coming designers based out of the Philippines are popping up on both Threadless and Design By Humans. Zerobriant, a hot new artist from Design By Humans recently designed this tee, titled Freedom Fighter, for the popular contest site. The shirt also received Shirt of the Month honors. Unfortunately, it’s sold out in many sizes but you can cross your fingers and hope for a reprint! 

Check out Zerobriant’s profile page to see the other pieces he has up for voting at Design By Humans.

Being that zerobriant is from the Pilippines and his tee features a boxer, I thought it was appropriate to share this clip of Manny Pacquiao knocking out Ricky Hatton in the 2nd round a few months back.

Punch Out for Wii

Punch Out for the Wii came out today and I am super excited to play it! I was a huge fan of the original Punch Out for the NES, starring none other than Mike Tyson. In fact, I guarantee you that if you were to let me play the original game today that I would still remember the correct duck, duck, side, side, punch combinations for each of the fighters. And am I the only one that thought Mike Tyson was impossibly difficult to defeat! Man, such a fun game. I hope the Wii version is just as fun!

Check out the live action trailers below (via Johnny Cupcakes) and the two Punch Out tees The Bald bull tee is courtesy of Crazy Dog Shirts ($18.99) and the one featuring Doc Louis and Little Mac can be purchased from 80’s Tees ($20).
