The Chop Shop T-Shirts have become quite iconic. They’ve got a very unique style that appeals to not only geeks, but also design nerds. The latest shirt will also get music fans excited. And if you’re a Beatle fan then you probably already have your credit card out and ready.
The T-Shirt is called 85 Icons of Fab History and Songs and it features 85 icons related to the “four lads who shook the world” in both history and song. The Chop Shop warns that some of the icons can only be cracked by die-hard fans! As a Beatles fan, I have to admit that I really dig this T-Shirt. It’s going to be fun trying to identify all of those tiny silhouettes!
So I’ve been hyping Fab.com over the last few days, mainly because they’ve been selling a lot of good stuff. Sexy stuff. Stuff that have been reviewed by a keen designer eye. Basically, everything they sell is eye candy. So I was perusing the site today and noticed that our friends from The Chop Shop is featured as a daily deal on the site – awesome! If you visit this blog regularly then you know that I’ve always been a fan of The Chop Shop.
“Chop Shop calls itself a nerd’s haven. Their fun and smart designs celebrate the aspects of geeky pop culture you sometimes wish you didn’t know and love so much. Featuring robots, vampires, aliens, rock stars, and space equipment, they’ve embraced their inner nerd and so should you.”
They’ve got four prints (letterpress and digital prints) for sale over at Fab.com priced from $15. The deal is good until Thursday August 4, 2011. Having said that, if you want to buy some of the tees by the Chop Shop but not sold at Fab.com then head on over to the Chop Shop’s online store and get your nerd on!
Our friends at the Chop Shop released their latest T-Shirt and it again features their iconic, Gestalt-esque style, that we’ve come to know and love. WeVolve features 37 of the most famous simians on the planet. Can you identify them all? Not so sure what a simian is? I’ll help you out:
“The simians (infraorder Simiiformes) are the “higher primates” familiar to most people: the Old World monkeys and apes, including humans, (together being the catarrhines), and the New World monkeys or platyrrhines. Simians tend to be larger than the “lower primates” or prosimians.”Â Â via Wikipedia.
The newest tee from the Chop Shop is pretty killer. Instead of a design comprised of 50 or so silhouettes, they have a design that features 19 funny, mock coupons! If you’re a tech nerd or web geek, you’ll find at least one coupon here that will tickle your funny bone.
The Chop Shop is offering the aptly named The Coupon Tee in 5 different colors (Eggplant, Silver, Cranberry, Orange, White). The shirt is available now for sale for $20 ($2 Â extra for American Apparel tees).
“19 various coupons for tech nerds and web enthusiasts. Special offers not seen on any other t-shirts anywhere! They range from 30% the droids you are looking for to 50% off any 1 ring of power in either styles for men or dwarves. Other offers will get your mom off Facebook and make it so that someone sees one of your tweets. Order it now and start taking advantage of all the glorious offers!”
Disclaimer: Not all offers valid and cutting coupons out of shirt will render shirt full of holes.
Now that is a whole lot of hair! That of course is in reference to the newest tee from Chop Shop called Dapper Men (141 Dudes). I presume that these are 141 “famous” dudes because I think I just spotted Bob Marley and Kevin Smith. The first person to name all 141 men wins a brick of cheese from me. Okay, not really but if you can name em’ all comment below and I will give you a long distance applause (I’ll even stand up and clap).
Dapper Men (141 Dudes) is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now from Chop Shop for $20 and be sure to use the coupon code “cotygun” for 15% off your entire purchase!

Filter Heroes by Chop Shop.Pros: Absolutely love the design, perfect for the techy crowd or for photoshop gurus. Shirts come packaged in a protective plastic bag to protect the shirts from the elements during shipment. Features a custom screenprinted inner neck label and is tagless for itch free comfort. Printed on a charcoal Alstyle blank.Â Cons: Nothing really, I just wish you didn’t have to pay a premium for the American Apparel option. Other than that, excellent product!Â Price: $20 but you can save $15% if you use the coupon code “givemeabreak” at checkout.
Soju-rific byÂ Funky Koreatown.Pros: Fun shirt, especially for those who have an interest in Korean culture or just like to drink soju! A bit character heavy but I’ll be sure to wear it the next time I go soju drinking. Flat rate shipping in the US and internationally. Printed on an American Apparel blank.Â Cons: Blacks not as vibrant as I have seen on other DTG printed shirts. A bit pricey.Â Price: $21.99.
Most geeks that you meet will probably admit to being fans of robots. And why not? Robots are representative of the technical advancements that we wish we had, and, well, they’re just cool to see, imagine, build, etc. As an 80′s kid I grew up watching Transformers and Voltron, and in the 90′s I admittedly watched The Power Rangers series. There’s just something so innately appealing about robots for tech geeks like myself.Â
But enough reminiscing, here’s a tee from the guys over at the Chop Shop. It’s their newest tee and it’s called robotRock. I love the image, but not so sure of the Japanese text – can anyone translate? The tee is available in three different colors: olive, dark chocolate and black. You can pick one up today from Chop Shop for just $20.00 but remember to use the coupon code “cotygun” for 15% off of your next order at the Chop Shop! And, seriously, does anyone know what the Japanese text means?!
In this episode I wear Nerdbot 1.0Â byÂ Chop ShopÂ and review HopeÂ from Phanica, a new tee brand based out of Wisconsin, inspired by a book on business and life, and started by Phil Keys during his early days in college. I’ve got coupon codes that you can use at both of the featured online shops so be sure to take advantage of those to save yourself some cash. As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!
HopeÂ by Phanica. Good: Printed on American Apparel so if you have experience with American Apparel you’ll know what size fits best for you, very comfortable, huge print, gradient on design looks great, tagless screenprinted label on neck for itch free comfort, fancy hangtag adds a professional touch, and lots of extra goodies included with tee for double the fun-ness! Bad: No problems with the shirt, I just wished that the rest of the Phanica line was more in the style of this tee, hopefully future tees will continue in this direction or maybe we will see more collaboration tees with Phil and his father. Price: $19.99 but you can save 15% if you use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.
Nerdbot 1.0Â by Chop Shop.Â Design will appeal to any Trek fan and did I mention it’s dirt cheap! Plus it comes with a temporary tattoo, you can’t beat that! Printed on a Hanes Beefy T and has a custom Chop Shop neck tag. This shirt is a steal! Price: $6.00 but you can save 15% if you use the coupon code “cotygun” at checkout.
That’s right, here’s a quality freebie from the folks over at The Chop Shop. You can get your very own copy of the very upside down Graphic Design tee from the Chop Shop, for, you guessed it – free! Chopping Block (on the back of the tee) is in reference to the Chop Shop’s sister site that specializes in graphic design (go figure!). The only catch with this tee is that you still need to pay for shipping ($5). If you want to pick one of these guys up then use the coupon code “freeGDU” to get yours. The shirt is printed on charcoal grey Hanes Beefy T’s.Â
The good folks over at 10teesÂ inspired me to come up with a top 10 list of my own. In preparation for Macword Expo 2009 - I have come up with a list of 10 Essential Tees for MacAddicts!Â
Show the world how much you adore your favorite OS (Mac OS X), brand (Apple), piece of hardware (iPhone) or even personality (Steve Jobs). There’s a shirt here to fill the t-shirt void of every sector of the Apple cult. Go ahead and indulge yourself.Â
Before there was the “i” there was the “e” and the “e” in this case stood for enhanced. The Apple IIe has the distinction of being the longest-lived computer in Apple history. If you were a proud IIe owner, then this is a great tee to pick up! The Chop Shop Apple IIe Template tee is a steal at 10 bucks!
How many of these Apple products did you own? You can quickly spot a PowerMac G4, PowerMac G5, iMac G3, iMac G4, iMac G5 and a first generation iPod. But a true MacAddict can without a doubt and no hesitation tell you what the other two models are. Can you identify the other two Apple products? Pick up this tee at Go Ape Shirts for $19.Â
I love the I’m A Mac commercials and now I can tell the whole world that I too am a Mac. For $19 pick up this tee from Insanely Great Tees. Alternatively, if you drive down to Apple’s Cupertino Headquarters, you can pick up an authentic Hello, I’m A Mac tee.Â
Real men don’t mind wearing hearts. Especially one shaped like an Apple. Insanely Great Tees says it best: “Some people think that you have a problem with all this computer stuff. But they just don’t understand – it’s not a game. This is serious. This is forever. It’s… love.” Show your love for just $19.Â
