Our friends from Monsieur Eureka just released their brand spanking new website along with some new T-Shirts. First off, I have to speak about how great the new site it. The old site wasn’t too shabby, but this new site takes things to the next level. I’m really looking forward to some of the new additions to the site like the Web Theater. Most of the text on the site is in French though, so that makes things a little tough for me, especially since the Mystery Story sounds so interesting!
Of course, the shirts are as wacky and as unusual as ever before! The crazy characters and the the stories behind these characters are what make this brand great. My favorites from the bunch include Creme Molaire and Limoname, both of which are available now from Monsieur Eureka now for $25.

DeadBuryDead has definitely stepped up their game since I first featured them on this blog. I really enjoy the look and feel of their current line of tees – very vintage without trying to hard to be vintage. It also looks like they’ve caught the eye of the people at Fab.com. They are the latest indie brand to be featured on this daily deal site that emphasizes good design.
The DeadBuryDead T-Shirt are priced at $16 a piece, that’s 36% off the retail price of $24.99. Remember, Fab.com is invite only so if you’re not already a member, here’s an invite from ME to YOU.

A few Co-Tee TV episodes ago, I reviewed Vaughn de Heart, a unique brand started by self-proclaimed Vaughntrepreneur, RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman. Well, Vaughn de Heart is back with a collection of new and limited items. Le Magnifigue was released on Black Friday and fittingly features 7 brand new Vaughn de Heart products, all of which are black. What makes this collection truly special is the limited run number of each of the products in the Le Magnifigue Collection. Each item is limited to seven pieces. Why 7?
“It actually start with the zip hoodie. I put Le Magnifique on the back and I thought I was done. Then while I was sitting at work one day crunching numbers (I work during the day as an analyst) the idea of the magnificent 7 came to me. I thought, “I’ll make 7 hoodies!” But that didn’t seem like enough. When I got home I got to my computer and started designing more and the idea of 7 items and making only 7 of each happened. Then the idea of the numbered cards to give it a special feeling. Then the idea of the gold tags, and the special drawstring bags as packaging. I actually started making this collection in August (That’s why there is a tank in the collection), that’s how long it took all of the details to come together, and now that it is made and my screen printer thoroughly hates me for putting him through this ordeal, the collection is finished.” – RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman
I took a quick peak at the Vaughn de Heart shop and noticed that a few of the items from Le Magnique are already sold out or only available in 1 or 2 specific sizes. So if you see something that you like, I highly recommended that you scoop it up! Items from this collection are priced from $24.95 to $54.95 and are available now from the Vaughn de Heart online shop.

I’ll start off by saying that these designs from Vaughn de Heart are true T-Shirt finds. I love the simple, yet effective typography of the three designs featured below. The brand was started by Walla Walla University graduate, RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman, and is the product of coincidence and possibly fate. You can read more about his story at the Vaughn de Heart blog.
HEART features bold white type on a Royal Blue T-Shirt. If you’ve got heart, this is the T-Shirt to get. The “Heart” in Vaughn de Heart is in reference to the fact that Palmer-Coleman put 100% of his own heart into starting this brand. Les gens courageux is French for “The Fearless Ones.” This shirt reflects the fearlessness that Palmer-Coleman had to have in order to start his own clothing band. He had a lot of fear going into this, but I think he has done an excellent job so far.
The initial collection at Vaughn de Heart features 5 distinct T-Shirts and 1 signature drawstring bag. The T-Shirts are priced from $22 to $24 and feature both crew neck and v-neck tees. Hopefully a hands on review of one of these signature tees will be coming soon!
