I’ve been listening to the Beatles a lot recently. I’m not to sure why but I have. It’s probably because I can’t stand what’s spinning on the radio. At this point in my life I seem to really be connecting with John, Paul, George and Ringo. A fellow colleague of mine gave a pop quiz to an entire class of Intro to Psychology students (about 250 students). At the end of the quiz he asked an unrelated question. That question was “Who is your favorite band of all time?” Responses included multiple votes for The Fray and All American Rejects. No one answered the Beatles. That’s disturbing.
To ensure that my children grow up with good musical taste I’ll be sure to play them the Beatles discography while they are still in the womb. And then I’ll pick up this shirt for them, The Beatles Alphabet, designed by Ian Leino ($19.95).
In this episode I wear the 3 Little Pigs: Mechanized Assault byÂ Ian Leino and review two tees, one from Rethink Clothing called Fortune Cookie! and a second from All For One Clothing called Spray Paint. If you follow the blog and this show then you might already be familiar with ReThink Clothing because I’ve covered them many times before. All For One Clothing is a new brand that was started by Brandon Hopkins and is based out of California. A portion of all sales from All For One Clothing goes straight to animal relation charities. Use the coupon code “COTY” on your next ReThink Clothing or All For One Clothing purchase and save 20% and 15% respectively. As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!

Spray Paint by All For One Clothing.Good: Great fun shirt, perfect for the animal lover! Comes in a unique box and is packaged with a lot of goodies including stickers and milk bone treats for your dog! The tee has a comfortable feel (not sure what kind of blank) and is printed in three different areas: neck, front and the back, it is also tagless for itch free comfort. A portion of sales will be donated to animal charities. Bad: No real issues with the tee itself, I just wish that the website would give me more information about the tee like who designed it and what kind of blank was used. Other than that, great way to fill a niche!Price: $22.99 but you can save 15% if you use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout. $2 from each tee sold will go to an animal charity.
Fortune Cookie by Andrew Olivier for ReThink Clothing.Good: Excellent collaboration here between Andrew from Wandering Whale and ReThink. I think Andrew captured the ReThink style with this tee. Printed on American Apparel so you’ll know what size fits best, great colors! This is the shirt to wear the next time you go out for Chinese. Bad: Only gripe that I’ve got with this tee is the tag, other than that, great design and awesome collaboration. Price: $19.99 but you can save 20% if you use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.
3 Little Pigs: Mechanized Assault by Ian Leino for Threadless. Another great tee from Threadless, and the second Asian themed tee covered in this episode! It’s got a huge 5 color print and the design by Ian Leino is awesome. This is the perfect tee for anyone into Japanese culture or anime. Price: $18.00 but is no longer available for sale. You can however checkout Ian’s Threadless profile and see his latest Threadless designs.
