It’s been really depressing watching and reading the news this past week, especially with all of the Haiti coverage. Seeing all those people lose everything that they had and have known is truly heartbreaking. And that’s why I’ll continue to blog about these Haiti relief Â T-Shirts that continue to be released and whose profits go to help those suffering in Haiti.
The latest Haiti relief shirt comes to use from Yellow Black & White. The shirt is called “Tout Bagay Deja Byen.” I had no idea what that meant, until I took a peak at the product description. After learning its meaning, I thought that it was the perfect phrase for such a sad time. The tee is available in black and red colorways and is on presale for $25 with 100% of the proceeds going to Haitian. The printing for this project was donated by Print My Goods.
“We have been able to visit Haiti a couple times in the past. This past summer I actually spent a week and a half there, about 100 miles outside of Port-Au-Prince. While we were there we saw a sign with these words on it â€œTout Bagay Deja Byen.â€ In english this phrase would be translated as â€œAll things are already goodâ€ or â€œEverything is already OK.â€ It was explained that this was a statement that Haitians use as a means of spreading hope. To us this statement best represents what we have experienced for ourselves and we have learned about the Haitian people in the last few days. They are incredibly strong and hopeful.”

By The Numbers is a cool red shirt that I stumbled upon while checking out the Escape Artist online shop. The tee does remind me a bit of Ugmonk’s Words Aren’t Always Meant To Be Read tee. I love how the digits pop on the red tee and I chuckled when I read this on the product page: “And whether you want a cheat sheet for a kindergarten math test, something nostalgic for an amputee, or just proof that youâ€™re the kind of person who can be counted onâ€¦ this shirt has your number!”
By The Numbers is printed on an American Apparel tee and is available now for purchase for $20.

One of my favorite new indie tee brands, Milk & Eggs Co., recently released 5 new tees and I am in love with Draw Your Own Way. In the world of fancy all-over-prints, I breath a sigh of relief whenever I see tees like these: simple, minimal colors, and powerful without being overbearing. If you know someone that likes to trace other peoples work then pick this tee up for them (or at least send them a link) and then kick them in the shin.
Draw Your Own Way is available now from Milk & Eggs Co. for $18, go pick one up today!

I spotted this tee over at ATshirtBlog.com and it was too awesome to pass up posting here. I thought I’d spread the love for this Pop + Shorty designed tee a bit further. Buy this for any web designer and I guarantee that it will make their day! I hardly ever make guarantee but this tee is guaranteed to impressed even the most grouchy designers.
You Are The CSS To My HTML is printed on an Athletic Grey American Apparel Tri-blend tee (this shirt is OMG soft) and is available for purchase now at the Pop + Shorty store for $25.

So the word bubble has seen a resurgence of sorts with the explosion of Web 2.0 design elements. You do not have to look far to see the word bubble incorporated into brand logo. Heck, I’ve even used it for Co-Tee TV! But this shirt from Endangered Wear takes the word bubble to the next level. Seriously, to the next level.
Hello is limited to a print run of 50 and is printed on a red American Apparel tee. You can pick one up today from Endangered Wear for $17.99.

I’m typically very critical when it comes to all-over-prints. I’m just not a big fan of them. But this tee by shantyshawn and available at Design By Humans is the exception to that rule. I actually really dig it and love how the red pops against the black and white backdrop. It’s available now for purchase for a cool $25.Â
Although the earliest known print of this story originates from 17th century French folklore, and was included in the 1697 collection, Tales of Mother Goose by Charles Perrault, it’s the Brothers Grimm version that we have come to know and love. You see, in Perrault’s version, there is no happy ending. The wolf eats both little red riding hood and her grandmother and there is no happy ending. In the Brothers Grimm version, a hunter saves little red riding and her grandmother and then drowns the wolf. Such dark undertones for a child’s story, don’t you think?
