Conventional wisdom suggests that these sweaters are much more practical (especially for me) than wearing the actual product that they are spoofing. Why? Because in Hawaii, winter is just like every other day of the year. Meaning it’s not very cold at all, definitely not cold enough to warrant the use of a hideous Christmas sweater.
Of course, this means that there is a lack of “Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties” during the holidays in Hawaii. But then again, you guys probably can’t get a tan at the beach during this particular time of the year. I can. Cost versus benefits, my ugly sweater loving friends.
Now if you’re still considering one of these Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirts then please feel free to head on over to master Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirt purveyors, Vardagen. They will hook you up. For $20 you get your choice between Ugly deer, moose and snowman sweaters. If you do decide to pick one of the tees up please leave a comment below, so that I can proceed to point a fingers in your direction and chuckle.

Well you guys requested it and the Massive List of Black Friday Deals and Steals is here! I’ve been getting a lot of email and tweets from people asking me to either post about their Black Friday sale or whether or not I would do a list of Black Friday deals. I was going to wait until Thanksgiving, but since a few of these can be had RIGHT NOW and since the deals are already floating around the Internet (see Emptees and Hide Your Arms), I decide against waiting.
In any case, here you go, the annual list of Black Friday Deals and Steals! I’ll be updating this post as the week progresses and more sales pop up. If you’ve got a Black Friday sale planned or you’re already doing something then be sure to let me know and I will post it. ALL the sales is also viewable on the “SALE” page in the menu, which I brought back for the holiday season. Enjoy!

This post has absolutely nothing to with T-Shirts. So, after lunch today me and a colleague, Mr. Andy Dewald, discovered a wonderful site, SketchySantas.com. Inspired by the awesomeness of SketchySantas.com we decided to do a tribute video. The background music is sung by an unknown singer and was given to us by our former (bless his heart) advisor, Dr. Ed Chronicle.
This tee from Print Liberation is the perfect compliment to the Scrooge in you. With Christmas approaching, those of us without an unlimited cash flow are probably feeling the pinch. With the endless number of Christmas parties and gift exchanges, it’s no wonder that Print Liberation made this shirt. Wear this tee to your next Christmas party and let everyone know exactly just how you really feel.
When I first saw Cannibal while perusing my RSS Reader, I literally laughed-out-loud. The newest tee from Glennz Tees surely delivers when it comes to invoking laugher. This tee is kind of like those weird Santa Clause slasher movies, mixing two extremely different holidays into one incredible mashup. Cannibal is printed on an asphalt American Apparel tee and is available for purchase now from Glennz Tees for just $19.95.
Some great deals can be had for those of you into the After Christmas Shopping craze. The biggest deals here include 50% off all merchandise at Pyknic Clothing (sale ends January 1) and $10 tees at Design by Humans (sale ends January 4)! Also, Karmaloop is having a 60% off sale, but you better hurry it ends tomorrow (December 26)!
Some other random sales (this list is being updated has the sales roll along so check back often):
Tis’ the season for giving and Paper Root Clothing is in a giving mood! The new Gaunty designed Holiday Tee from Paper Root Clothing is now available for purchase with 50% of the proceeds going to Toys For Tots! Go get one now, it’ll beat the old Christmas sweater sitting in your drawer.Â
