Lifering Logo by Charlie Noble.Pros: A well executed Logo T-Shirt from Charlie Noble. The tee comes individually wrapped in a separate plastic bag from its shipping bag, which is always nice. Lifering features a custom embroidered Charlie Noble neck tag and a custom printed hangtag. You’ll also find a custom embroidered tag on the lower left seam of the T-Shirt. Charlie Noble uses American Apparel branded T-Shirts and the print of the design is very soft. I love the overal execution, design and color selection.Â Cons: Not much. In fact, I can’t really think of any. I seriously dig this T-Shirt. Price: $20.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil and Touch No EvilÂ by Unknown.Pros: A no frills but super fun T-Shirt! I could imagine someone giving out one of these T-Shirts to each of four friends as a fun little gag gift!Price: $10.
I love it when new brands contact me excited about their product because it gets me excited! Rick Waters from new clothing brand, Omunky, recently contacted me about his newest tee, Harry Hippo. Of course, I head on over and check out the Omunky products and am intrigued the offerings. If you read this blog you know that I am a sucker for character pieces. Harry Hippo and Gabe The Gorilla are both characters in the current Omunky line. The best part is that each of the tees come with a background story about the character featured on the shirt. My favorite from the pair has got to be Getaway Gorilla – love that shirt!
Omunky refers to itself as an eco-friendly t-shirt ocmpany. They used organic cottons and pre-consumer recycled preshrunk cotton. Omunky shirts are available now from $20-$22.
The community over at German T-Shirt contest site A Better Tomorrow have been pumping out some seriously cute tees the last couple of weeks. The newest tee is no exception. It’s called Wer hat die Kokosnuss (Who Has The Coconut) and was designed by Nikor. It’s an all around silly T-Shirt featuring what looks to be a chimp making funny faces. This is the perfect tee for anyone who likes to monkey around!
As with all A Better Tomorrow tees, Who Has The CoconutÂ is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now for 18,00 â‚¬.
In this episode I wear WingtipsÂ by Manos LakoutsisÂ and review a tee from Ten Bills called Bird Is My Best Friend that was designed by Doug Cowan. Ten Bills was founded on the idea that cool, fresh looking shirts should be made available for just 10 bucks. Ten Bills made that happen and now you can get fresh tees all year round for a stunningly affordable 10 bills.Â
Bird Is My Best FriendÂ by Doug Cowan.Good:Â Great illustration from Doug Cowan, the shirt fits great, a little longer than American Apparel tees but that shouldn’t be a problem after the first wash. The tee is tagless for itch free comfort and features a screen printed neck label instead. The best part of the tee is it’s price – it’s cheap! This is a great shirt for anyone that’s into philosophy, animals or both!Â Bad:Â Not much, I was a bit skeptical about quality, at first, but the shirt is comparable to what other sites are selling at double the price. I’ll sure be picking up tees from Ten Bills in the future!Â Price: $10.00.
WingtipsÂ by Manos LakoutsisÂ for Threadless.Â This here is a classic Threadless tee. I’m not wearing a first edition, unfortunately, but still – great shirt! This one is actually printed on an American Apparel tee rather than the Threadless branded tee (I prefer the AA fit over the Threadless fit). Perfect shirt for any shoe snob.Â Price: $9.00 (available in very limited quantities and sizes).
I’ve been getting some great items in the mail for me to review, and have been for the past few months. I enjoy all the stuff I’ve been receiving and really appreciate it! Anyhow, I thought I would bring back the video reviews that I started last August and then abandoned after just three episodes. I decided to give the video thing another go, this time with me being a little less eccentric, going without the Twitter nonsense in the middle and much much more information about the product and brand.
I’m going to be keep these in “beta” for the first four episodes (yes, I’ve pre-recorded four of these) so they’re pretty raw. We’ll see how the first four episodes of season 2 (and I use that term lightly since there wasn’t much of a season 1, LOL) go and if you guys like them then I’ll keep going with them. So, let me know what you liked and what you didn’t like.Â
Monkeys. Good: great fit, huge print, print by Jimmy Heartcore, cheap Â and sweatshop free. Bad: Some moms might cringe when seeing this tee. Price: $11.
Homemaker Belt by Jon Wye.Â Good: genuine leather, custom made in the USA, very detailed print, colors are very vibrant, print on front and back, tiny signature on buckle (nice touch), nice keychain adds a nice touch, everything hand made by Jon Wye. Bad: Nothing really, might be a bit flashy for some but he also sells blank black belts and other designer belts. Price: $65.
