Coty’s Thoughts:

Fistachio by Maiden Voyage Clothing Co. Pros: Lovely presentation, the T-Shirt was packaged in such a wonderful way that  I had a great experience going through each layer of the boxing before I got to the actual shirt. Shirt comes packed in a little sack much like one you would find on any ship in the 1700′s, except it’s a bit miniature (so cool). The shirt was tagless and featured a screen printed neck label. A custom hangtag is included as well. The print is extremely large and super soft, as is the shirt itself (soft that is). Love the fact that they have a theme and stick with that theme from the website to the packaging to the shirt design. All around awesome in my opinion. Cons: The shirt is very slim fitting so if you like your shirts a bit on the loose side I’d suggest ordering a size up. Price: $28

When Geek-ness Goes Retro…

If I were still doing Coty Loves Threadless I would bet that When Geek-ness Goess Retro by Riccardo Bucchioni would be a Threadless Pick of the Week. It’s such a cool shirt and it reminds me of those mail order ads that I’d find scattered in old school comic books back in the day. I remember always seeing ads for X-Ray glasses and I remember never getting them (what’s an 8-year-old kid to do with no checkbook). As an adult (with a checkbook on hand), maybe I should invest in a pair of vintage X-Ray glasses and see once and for all if they really work. Hmmmm…..

NerdyShort #1 + Who Writes This Stuff?

What’s awesome about the first NerdyShirts NerdyShort is not necessarily the short itself, but the fact that it was shot entirely on an iPhone 3G S! How cool is that! I’m a fan of compact video making so I cannot wait to pick up and try out the new iPhone 3G S video features. My only wish was that it could shoot in HD ala the Flip Mino HD. Maybe in the next iteration? Maybe. 

Below NerdyShort #1 I’ve got the 3 NerdyShirt tees that are seen in this short film – Nerd, Free Hugs and Admiral Ackbar’s It’s A Trap Shirt. Each of those shirts are available for purchase at NerdyShirts for $19.95.

Free Hugs

It's A Trap

And finally from NerdyShirts I’ve got their newest tee, it’s called Who Writes This Stuff and is based on a shirt from the new Adam Sandler/Judd Apatow flick, Funny People. If you were this shirt I guarantee it will strike up conversation. Whether you want that or not, well, you decide! It’s available for presale now at NerdyShirts for $14.95.

Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

Anyone here fans of Big Bang Theory? If so, you need to check out this T-Shirt from ThinkGeek.com. Playing Jan Ken Po (Japanese name of Rock Paper Scissors) is a playground stable for any kid that grows up in Hawaii. I remember fierce Jan Ken Po battles with my elementary school buddies – so intense! Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock is a version of Jan Ken Po that was invented by Sam Kass and Karen Bryla, and was featured on an episode of CBS’s hit show, Big Bang Theory. I’ve included the hilarious bit from the episode below for you to chuckle at. You can pick up this shirt from ThinkGeek for $15.99!

And just in case you were wondering how to play this version of Rock Paper Scissors, well, here you go:

Rock crushes lizard.
Scissors decapitate lizard.
Lizard eats paper.
Lizard poisons Spock.
Paper disproves Spock.
Spock vaporizes rock.
Spock bends scissors.
