Mullet 2.0

Okay I’ve had about enough of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 fiasco, but, I have to say that this tee from Rizzo Tees did crack me up. It’s an obvious nod to the infamous hair cut that Kate sports on the show.

For those of you unfamiliar with the hair style that is the mullet:

“The mullet is a hairstyle that is short at the front and sides, and long in the back. Widely panned as a lowbrow and unappealing hairstyle, and facetiously referred to as “business in the front, party in the back,” the mullet began making appearances in the popular media in the 1960s and 1970s but did not catch on with the general populace until the early 1980s. It continued to be popular until the early 1990s and has enjoyed a partial return to favor as a retro look in the 2000s.”

The design is printed on an American Apparel tee and you can pick up Mullet 2.0 from Rizzo Tees today for $14 and be sure to use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout for an extra 10% off your entire order!

Dapper Men (141 Dudes)

Now that is a whole lot of hair! That of course is in reference to the newest tee from Chop Shop called Dapper Men (141 Dudes). I presume that these are 141 “famous” dudes because I think I just spotted Bob Marley and Kevin Smith. The first person to name all 141 men wins a brick of cheese from me. Okay, not really but if you can name em’ all comment below and I will give you a long distance applause (I’ll even stand up and clap).

Dapper Men (141 Dudes) is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now from Chop Shop for $20 and be sure to use the coupon code “cotygun” for 15% off your entire purchase!

Handlebar Hold Up + Sleight of Hare

One of my favorite indie brands, Fuzzy Ink, has released two new tees to add to their unique line of mustache inspired T-Shirts. The first shirt, appropriately titled Handlebar Hold Up, features an incredibly enormous … you guessed it … mustache! This might be the most prominently placed mustache ever seen on a Fuzzy Ink tee.

Sleight of Hare is admittedly a hilarious design, one where the hare steals the show from the magician (and takes his mustache with hime!). I wish I had a rabbit that could do tricks like that. I used to have rabbits, believe it or not. And they both lived very long lives – a little over 10 years. Do rabbits normally live that long?

You can pick up both shirts from Fuzzy Ink for $18.95 and they are both available in mens and womens sizes. Use the coupon code “Hawaii” for 10% off your entire Fuzzy Ink order!

I can read your mind. Yes.

No real story behind this one, I think I had something I previously planned to submit but then at the last minute I thought of this one. Yes, that’s right.

I make great animal sounds. Pinch me for a live demo.

Indeed I do make great animal sounds. Ask anyone in my family. I make very very very good animal sounds. I specialize mainly in house pets but can do some darn good farm animals.

The best part of a ham sandwich is the hypotenuse.

This I got after I saw someone on Twitter (sorry I can’t remember who) say that their girlfriend said the most genius thing, that she loved the hypotenuse of her sandwich. I thought that was brilliant.

I spike my hair for self defense.

I’ve gone back to the spiky hair after a long year and half sporting the long hair look. And I love having short hair again, especially since I can easily poke people I don’t like with the razor sharp spiky hair.

When I grow up I want to be a swashbuckler.

No, I wasn’t watching Pirates of the Caribbean at the time this slogan was conceived. I believe I was reading an article on Yahoo and the word swashbuckler came up. Thought it sounded great. And for the record, I don’t reaaaaallly want to be a swashbuckler when I grow up. 

I really really really really really like ice cream, a lot.

Oh, this one was inspired by a professor of mine while were discussing the infinite properties of language. And one point during the talk he had said that same thing (probably with more r’s) and then explained how he could have been the very first person to have said that, ever. And for the record, I like mint chocolate chip ice cream and cherry Garcia the most and maybe pralines and cream. 

I use headphones to block out the noises in my head.

No, I’m not schizo. I just realizes that I need a new pair of Bose headphones because mine are becoming very worn out and is leaving awkward black scum on my ear lobes. At least that’s what the noises inside my head told me.

In this episode I wear X-Ray Goggles Work by Tony Aguero from Threadless and review Mack Hated Mondays from Linty Fresh, a brand run entirely by Eric Terry out of his home in Marietta, Georgia, and specializing in character driven designs that are accompanied with a story or poem to match. As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!

Coty’s Thoughts:

Mack Hated Mondays by Linty Fresh. Good: Huge print, love the colors, the pink and yellow pop nicely against the black, printed on an American Apparel blank, screen printed in three different areas, tagless for itch free comfort, great presentation with custom packaging and lots of extra goodies included with package. Bad: If I am being honest, I had no complaints. Linty Fresh has excellent products and I am happy that I finally got to get my hands on them. Price: $22.00.

Hairy Harry by Linty Fresh

Eric Terry is making collaborations a regular thing these days, and I’m not complaining because I think he’s found a way of freshening up his already fresh Linty Fresh line (is that enough fresh for you?). This time, Eric collaborated with Will Bryant who also goes by the nickname Mr. Fancy Pants. And like last months collaborator, Eric met Mr. Fancy Pants via the popular photo sharing site, Flickr. You can check out Will’s other work here on his Flickr Photostream. 

This month’s Linty Fresh tee is called Hairy Harry and it’s no April Fools joke. It really is that good! The line work is curvingly wonderful and I think the colors used are perfect. I really dig the green! If Linty Fresh had a pet wookiee I bet this is how he would look like. You can pick up Hairy Harry at Linty Fresh for $22 starting today.

And here’s the collaboration process as explained by Eric:

1. Will sent me his type work for Linty Fresh
2. I wrote a poem for it, fleshed out parts to go more with the concept, and picked a color scheme.
3. Tshirt!

New Fuzzy Ink Tee: Identity Crisis

I’m not sure how long Fuzzy Ink has had this tee available for pre-sale, but I have to admit that it’s a brilliant one! As always, the Fuzzy Ink team sticks with the mustache theme, I don’t think that will be changing anytime soon. The new tee, Identity Crises, was designed by Josh Stomberg, who is also known in creative circles as Sitting Duck. The tee can be purchased now at the pre-sale price of $15.99 ($2 cheaper than regular prices) and are expected to ship out by February 9. Also remember that Fuzzy Ink is a part of the Attack of the Coupons promotion here and as such YOU can get an additional 10% off with the coupon code “Hawaii”. And if you’re wondering, yes, I do live in Hawaii!
