Glorious Nonsensities 2×04: Spoilt, Found Item Clothing and Ferris Bueller

In this episode I wear Spoilt by Olly Moss and review a tee that I received from Found Item Clothing, a brand that specializes in taking fictional tees from your favorite movies and making them into an actual living, breathing and wearable t-shirt! As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!

Coty’s Thoughts:

Cameron’s Caduceus Shirt designed by Found Item Clothing. Good: Comes in very professional sealed plastic bag, American Apparel fitting, design is replicated with great detail, perfect for any fan of the 80′s. Bad: A bit pricey for a single color design.

Spoilt by Olly Moss. This week’s starter shirt is available from Threadless as a reprint. There isn’t an Olly Moss tee that I don’t like!

Tee-Riffic Photos (Part II)

You might remember my post a few weeks ago talking about submitting pictures to Threadless for STP’s or Street Steam Points. Well, I’m at it again. In my quest to upload photos of all of my Threadless tees, I’ve added four more and am now just waiting for them to get approved. I’ve added Threadless by Simon Noynay aka KID_Z, Spoilt by Olly Moss, X-Ray Goggles Work by Tony Aguero, and They’re, Their, There by  Florencio Zavala. You can also view these on my Flickr, be sure to add me!

Do you have some Tee-Riffic photos that you’d like to upload to Threadless? If so, then go here to do just that!

Threadless Top 20 Designs of 2008 Announced

About two weeks ago I posted my predictions for the Threadless 2008 Bestees Awards. My pick for Design of the Year went to When Pandas Attack by Jimiyo vs. AJ Dimarucot. And guess what, my pick has made the Top 20! Awesome. Let’s see if they can go all the way and win the $20,000 prize.

Some of my other favorites from the Top 20 include Friday I’m In Love by Loy Valera, Foam Monster In Emotion Reunion With Severed Thumb by Aled Lewis, and The Food Chain by Olly Moss. I’d be pretty happy to see any of these guys win!

I’ve put together this image showing the Top 20 Threadless tees of 2008as voted by the Threadless community. Which is you favorite? Who do you thin will win Design of the Year?

Threadless Top 20 Designs of 2008

Threadless Bestees 2008 – My Picks!

Threadless today announced their upcoming Bestees 2008 Awards. The grand award, as always, is the Design of the Year award, and with that distinction also comes a prize of $20,000. All 326 designs released by Threadless in 2008 will be up for voting and the design with the most votes will be the big winner. This should be interesting since I would assume that many people would recruit friends and family (as many as they can gather) to vote for their designs.

$20,000 prize:
Design of the Year: My pick for Design of the Year would have to go to the Jimiyo vs. AJ Dimarucot mashup, When Panda’s Collide. The print on this tee is huge and let’s not forget the star power of the designers involved – both of whom were finalist in the Design By Humans $10,000 contest. However, for some reason, the Monster Mash Collaboration of Horror might do well due to the overwhelming amount of hype this design earned in the blogs throughout the year.

$10,000 prize:
Designer of the Year: I’d give this award to Olly Moss. He continually pumps out awesome designs and has proved not to be a one hit wonder. I’ll also throw fatheed into the mix for this one.

$1,000 prizes:
Newcomer of the Year: alexmdc did a great job with Bird Migration, the Threadless Loves Travel winner. 
Unprinted Designer of the Year (plus a design printed): Not sure because I don’t really follow works in progress and unprinted designs.
Blogger of the Year: ladykat would be my pick – she put together two great contests in 2008 in the Threadless blogs.
Gallery Photographer of the Year: ir0cko, this guys consistently pumps out cool gallery photos. Check out his Flickr if you don’t believe me. 
Collaboration of the Year: Monsters Collaboration: Monster Mash Collaboration of Horror by Monster Mob. Lots of Threadless designers helped to make this tee and thus it should win. Plus, who doesn’t like monsters! This design has to win one of these awards and it would be most fitting if it won Collaboration of the Year.
