Our old friend Jon Wye has just released his newest T-Shirt which is part of his Pirate Chef series. The shirt is called The Mysterious Mr. Vegan Hunter and it featuresÂ a fatherly rabbit who is relaxing in his rabbit-hole study, reminiscing on his days of great harvesting. He is even taking a little time to enjoy a good vintage of carrot juice whilst polishing his most trusted shovel.
I think the shirt features a super fun design that would have probably gone very well with the Threadless crowd if it had been submitted there. You’ll also find the Pirate Chef logo printed on the back of the T-Shirt.
The Mysterious Mr. Vegan Hunter is printed on a super soft 100% combed cotton Olive T-Shirt and is available now from Jon Wye for $29. For extra savings, use the coupon code “5up” for $5 off your entire order!
Our favorite custom leather belt designer and purveyor of fanciful T-Shirts, Jon Wye, has released a new line of tees and has opened up shop in what some argue to be the greatest city in the world, New York City. Â The new line features some wonderful and witty illustrations featuring everything from ants and robots to squirrels and the ever wonderful weasel. He also has expanded his Pirate Chef line, which is a welcome surprise (i’ve always been a fan of it). Raise your hand if your think Jon should turn Wonder Weasel into the next great animated series.

In other news, Jon Wye, is now available in a brick and mortar shop in the heart of NYC at Bryant Park. “Weâ€™ve built an entire store that looks just like a classic library, complete with FAKE deer head, real working fireplace, bar, red leather high wing back chair, and custom built furniture in a classic library style.” If I was in NYC I’d definitely stop by and say hi! I have to say that the set-up looks totally amazing and luxurious to boot! And that wall of belts is pure awesomeness.
Pyknic Clothing just unleashed upon the world their Winter 2009 line and my oh my what a release it is. Over 25 new products for both men and women. They’ve got standard tees, totes, v-necks, sweaters and baseball tees. It also looks like they are focusing a bit more on branding now, with a bunch of their shirts featuring just the forks and basket logo ala Johnny Cupcakes crossbones and cupcakes logo tees. The one thing that they are doing differently from Mr. Cupcakes is that they have been invading the malls for teen consumption – Pyknic Clothing is available at Pacsun stores nationwide.
Welcome to this special edition of the Co-Tee TV! It’s the Cottonable Edition of Co-Tee TV that Rangga of Cottonable.com and I have been collaborating on for the past month.

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod or iPhone by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.
The Viereck by BLXNK and available at LIMITEES.Pros: Each shirt is individually packaged in a plastic bag, custom hangtag, printed on an American Apparel blank so the fit and feel is great. You’ll like this shirt if you’re a minimalist and/or an art aficionado.Â Cons: Some people might “not get” this shirt. I say interpretation should be left to the buyer! The print on this shirt was the thickest of the four tees reviewed here.Â Price: 28 EUR ($40).
Save The Foie by Stove Monkeys.Pros: Fun designs, especially for those who love Foie Gras! Unsure of what kind of shirt was used but the fit was good and the cotton was soft. The shirt comes individually packaged which helps to keep out odors and liquid during shipping. Screen printed in three different areas: back, front and inside neck. Tagless for itch free comfort. This shirt should make you smile, if not, then you’re not human!Â Cons: Not much, I really dig this shirt!Â Price: $25.
Art of the Fan Signature Shirt byÂ Art of the Fan.Pros: Art of the fan is the place to go if you’re a fantasy football fan, they’ve got this niche cornered! The signature shirt is the first Art of the Fan tee not produced by CafePress so that is a huge plus. I thought that this tee had the softest print of all four shirt reviewed. Perfect shirt to get for members of your Fantasy Football league or to give out as prizes!Â Cons: Not tagless. Most people will argue that the Hanes tee is one of the drawbacks to this shirt but I was pleasantly suprised to see how comparable it was in fit to American Apparel blanks. This was the only shirt of the four reviewed that did not come individually packaged in a separate plastic bag.Â Price: $24.99.
Dinosaurs Against Creationism byÂ Ban T-Shirts.Pros: I love the colorway of this shirt. I’m a fan of this Grass Green American Apparel blank! You don’t necessarily buy this shirt for design but rather for the message. If you’re a fan of Darwin and evolution then this shirt is a must have.Â Cons: Not tagless. Some might say the design is a bit cartoony, but I dig it.Â Price: $17.95 but use the coupon code “coty” to receive 10% off your entire order at Ban T-Shirts.
