Coty’s Thoughts:

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. 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. Price: 28 EUR ($40).

The Viereck

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! Cons: Not much, I really dig this shirt! Price: $25.

Save The Foie

Art of the Fan Signature Shirt by 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! 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. Price: $24.99.

Dinosaurs Against Creationism by 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. Cons: Not tagless. Some might say the design is a bit cartoony, but I dig it. Price: $17.95 but use the coupon code “coty” to receive 10% off your entire order at Ban T-Shirts.
