R u Reppin is the latest brand to enter the growing number of crowdsourcing T-Shirt sites. Members are allowed to submit designs which are then voted on by the R u Reppin Community. If your design wins to be printed on a tee, you will get $500 for each winning design and $2 for each t-shirt sold in the first 30 days and $1 for each t-shirt sold between 30 and 60 days.
R U Reppin currently has a collection of 17 T-Shirts. My favorite from the bunch was Done With Problems by Brazilian designer Matheus Lopes Castro (aka mathiole). You might remember mathiole as the designer of the iconic Colorblind T-Shirt from Threadless. R U Repping T-Shirts are available for sale for $19.97.
“R U Reppin is an online community of users that design, vote, and buy tees that are based around hip hop and the street lifestyle. When you sign up you become a representative of a cultural movement that allow you to post comments and critiques, download a tee template, and submit your designs in one of the many contests where you will have the chance to win some serious dough. Also, when you buy an R U Reppin tee, you are automatically doing your part in giving back to the community, where some of the proceeds help children of The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and other worthy causes that will help children develop and achieve their talents, creativity, and dreams.”

Yesterday, a photo of Beth and Jesse Palma began spreading across the Internet. It’s no ordinary photo since it is a wedding photo, but then again, it’s no ordinary wedding photo. The couple, who incidentally are both employees of NASA, had the opportunity to take a few wedding photos next to the Discovery Space Shuttle. How awesome is that? Pretty damn awesome.

Someone should totally gift them both the latest T-Shirt from the Chop Shop. It’s called Beyond Earth and features 23 historic space missions. Something tells me that they’d both appreciate this shirt and probably be able to name each of the 23 space missions referenced on the T-Shirt.
Beyond Earth is available now from Chop Shop for $22 but you can save 15% by using the coupon code “cotygun” at checkout. As a bonus, $5 of each order will be donated to the The Planetary Society. See below for details.
“If you buy a copy we will donate $5 of every purchase to The Planetary Society. The world’s largest space-interest group dedicated to inspiring the public with the adventure and mystery of space exploration. A non-governmental organization founded in 1980, who among its founders included Carl Sagan, the author of Cosmos. If you buy a copy with a membership (sorry, US residents only), we will register you as a new member for only an additional $25 (normally $37). See here for what you get as a new member.”

Check out this neat tee from Public Domain Clothing called Earth-Rise. Tired of the basic skeleton tee? Well, this one sort of the Sixth Sense of skeleton tees. It’s got a twist. They’ve fused a pair of astronauts and the planet earth to make on disturbing (and rather cool) skeleton tee. I dig.
Earth-Rise is available now from Public Domain Clothing for $25 and if you use the coupon code TAKE40 you can score 40% off your entire purchase.

Okay, I’ve said in the past that I am a hug fan of Glenn Jones but the only tees that I own of his are those that were available at Threadless. I think Rocket Science is the breaking point for me. I need this shirt. It’s filled with all kinds of amazingness that I must have it. Glenn, how do you do it? How do you come up with these genius ideas? I want your frontal lobe.
Rocket Science is printed on a black American Apparel blank and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.
