Teextile: Whisper

Admittedly, I went back and forth with my selections this week, but ultimately, I went with Whisper by SpaceMonkeyDR as my Teextile Favorite. I originally had gone with Star Kiss but then questioned that selection when I asked myself if I would actually wear that tee.

You can purchase Whisper (and the rest of the tees) all this week, but remember, each of these tees cost just $12 of their designated sale day, after that the price goes up to $15. After this week, all of the tees below will be gone forever.

Lot’s of cool tees this week from Teextile, but, my hands down favorite has got to be 7 Dirty Words by Arrow! Making it this weeks Teextile Favorite!

Co-Tee TV Episode 19: Wingtips, Ten Bills and Peaceful Primates

In this episode I wear Wingtips by Manos Lakoutsis 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.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Bird Is My Best Friend by Doug Cowan. Good: 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! Bad: 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! Price: $10.00.

Bird Is My Best Friend by Ten Bills

Wingtips by Manos Lakoutsis for Threadless. 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. Price: $9.00 (available in very limited quantities and sizes).

Co-Tee TV Episode 18: 3 Little Pigs, Rethink Clothing and All For One Clothing

In this episode I wear the 3 Little Pigs: Mechanized Assault by 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!

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod or iPhone by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

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.

Co-Tee TV Episode 17: Pyknic Clothing, LOWDTOWN Friends & Freaks

In this episode I wear the Signature Silvareware Tee from Pyknic Clothing and review Public Radio from LOWDTOWN Friends & Freaks, a New Jersey based brand started by student Ray Masaki out of a desire to create a brand with focus, a consistent theme and amazingly creative designs. Use the coupon code “COTY” on your next LOWDTOWN Friends & Freaks purchase and save 10%. As always, enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod or iPhone by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Public Radio by Ray Masaki of LOWDTOWN Friends & Freaks and Nathaniel Milburn. Good: Love this design, great collaboration between Ray and Nathaniel, colors work wonderfully together and is a great tee to wear out to the park on a sunny day or one that you could just as easily wear fashionably around town. It’s tagless for itch free comfort and has a screenprinted label, The custom custom hangtag is impressive and the embroidered seam tag adds an extra touch of professionalism normally seen only on higher priced tees. Bad: Not much, this tee should put a smile on your face – if you’re having a bad day throw this shirt on and you’ll begin to feel positive vibes! Price: $21.99 but you can save 10% if you use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.

Signature Silverware Tee by Pyknic Clothing. Great shirt, I’m not sure what kind of blank Pyknic Clothing uses but I really like the feel of this shirt, it’s very soft, just like the massive print. Really dig the design, love the subtle, classic and mature look of this Pyknic tee. Paired with nice vintage jeans, white dunks, along with a jacket (or blazer) over tis tee and you’re good to go for a night out in the town. Price: $24.98.

Coty Loves Threadless #1

I’m experimenting with Seesmic! Every week I’ll be reviewing the new batch of tees that Threadless releases. I’ll only be doing the new releases and not reprints, and won’t touch the Selects or Typetees (yet). If you’re not familiar with Seesmic, it’s a great little video site were you can easily record videos and people can reply to your videos with video replies. I’ll try and do these videos every Monday, to coincide with the new releases. 

The videos will be pretty raw, and pretty fast. I’ll spend about a minute per tee and I’ll give my thoughts on the tee. I’ll be rating the tees with either 1 wink for being a good tee, 2 winks for being an awesome tee that I would wear and 0 winks for a tee I would never wear. 

So, here’s the first episode – let me know what you guys think! PS: Just click on the design image and it’ll bring you straight to that designs product page! 

Lost At Sea by Jared Stumpenhorst is my Threadless Pick of the Week!
