Coty’s Thoughts:

Tea is Just Coffee’s Gay Cousin and Nerds Rock by Javaboi Industries. Pros: I love great packaging and so great packaging will score you killer points from me. I do have to say that I really dig the packaging used by Javaboi Industries. The coffee bag packaging is very theme based which is awesome. Before I mention the actual T-Shirt, I have to say that I also dig the Javaboi logo, it’s cute! The T-Shirts actually have a really good build quality. Both T-Shirts feature a custom neck tag and a custom patch on the back which is very nice. Nerds Rock was my favorite T-Shirt of the bunch. It features a modified logo of only the Javaboi character.  Both T-Shirts have a nice soft feel and feature fairly large prints. A lot of the other T-Shirts in the Javaboi line feature pop references and also come sized for both men and women, which is always nice.

Idea: Imagine if when opening up the coffee bag packaging and pulling out your T-shirt,  you could actually smell coffee beans. That would be kinda neat. Drop a few coffee beans in with the T-Shirt?

Cons: Not really feeling the not-so-positive vibe of the Tea is Just Coffee’s Gay Cousin T-Shirt. First off, I’m not a fan of the design or typography. The pink plaid on brown is a bit icky. And the gay reference? I’m not too sure what’s so “gay” about tea and why they had to use the word gay. The T-Shirt is just a little mean. Also, I simply don’t believe the statement to be true since I love both coffee AND tea. Finally, the last thing that you want to do as a brand (unless it’s your theme, i.e. T-Shirt Hell) is to offend potential customers. In their defense, this T-Shirt is no longer available for sale and is not found anywhere on their website.

Price: $25.

Moustardche! by Marcelo Jimenez for Threadless. Pros: Simply put, Moustardche is a super fun T-Shirt! Any hotdog fan or lover of sausages will adore this T-Shirt.

Price: $10.
