In the not so distant future, we will all use T-Shirts featuring laser cut designs. Screen printed apparel will be a thing of the past. Feasible? Probably not. Possible? Absolutely. In fact, a new brand called PERF Last Cut Apparel is doing exact that right now in 2011. You don’t even need to wait for the no so distant future.
“PERF creates unique laser cut patterned t-shirts for men and women. Eager to bring a distinctive texture and pattern to the clothes I wear, I created PERF after discovering the potential of using laser cutting technology to transform the everyday t-shirt into something extraordinary by cutting out unique patterns in them! I prefer to wear them with a colored t-shirt underneath, but I’ll leave that up to you. Or if you’d like, you can purchase an underlayer shirt of your specified color, separately. Each T-shirt is laser cut individually after you order it based on your preference for pattern, color and size. Please be patient as it may take up to 2 weeks to complete your order.”

Paul th’ Butchrd Pig by Butchrd Apparel.Pros: Huge print, design covers the bottom of the tee to the top third of the shirt. Printed on an American Apparel blank so you know what to expect when it comes to size, fit and comfort. Great packaging (tees are packed shrink wrapped in a styrofoam meat tray) that matches the “butcher” theme. Comes packaged with a toy and a promotional code that can be used with future purchases. Â Cons: You’ve got to be at least a little twisted to wear this shirt around town. You might get some looks at which point you can bust out your meat cleaver.Â Price: $12.
