I absolutely adore this T-Shirt from the Sneaky Studios Store. This is definitely robot propaganda at its finest. What else are we gonna use to defend ourselves against an alien invasion? I mean, it turned out okay for post-apocalyptic 2029. You’ve seen Terminator, right? Love the wish, though I wish that the price point was slightly lower.
You already know how much I LOVE science! I mean, I wrote an entire post dedicated to 101 Science T-Shirts. In fact, it’s one of the most popular posts on this blog, having garnered over 300,000+ views. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to find these science themed T-Shirts from Crazy Like That. They actually reached out to me a while ago, but just now was able to get my eye balls on their site … and boy was I NOT disappointed.
First of all, they have amazing product shots. Seriously, I love their product shots. The models, poses and props are spot on. Indie brands should really take note of how Crazy Like That present their goods (I just wish that they also provided a close up shot of just the designs). Excellent. Secondly, their science T-Shirts are just perfect and have the right combination of humor and wit. Any science nerd will enjoy the T-Shirts at Crazy Like That.
My favorites have got to be the Pennsylvania Towns & Highways tee (Intercourse, Pennsylvania has a population of roughly 1558) and the simple, yet excellent Sugar tee. Speaking of sugar, I think my blood-glucose levels are kind of low – time to go and eat some food!
The mad scientist’s over at Doctor Hazmat recently released their latest tee, Happy M.A.C., featuring the ever joyful Doctor Hazmat sidekick, M.A.C. You may remember, M.A.C. from Co-Tee TV a few episodes ago, he’s the long time friend, and assistant to Doctor Hazmat and incidentally the Doc’s first creation. M.A.C. stands for Multi-purpose Autonomous Cyborg, but it could easily also stand for Most Awesome Cyborg! M.A.C. is definitely a cute little creature, so be sure to keep your eyes on him!
“M.A.C. is always assisting Doctor Hazmat in the lab, and things don’t always go as planned. He’s been blown up, eaten, ran over… lets just say he’s been through a lot. But today is his lucky day. The Doc has given him a day off! YIPPEEEE!”
Doctor Hazmat tees are known for their big designs and bold color combinations, but as you can see, Hello M.A.C. is more on the subtle side. The grey design on the slate American Apparel T-Shirt is a refreshing variation to the other Doctor Hazmat designs.
For all of the confused hipsters in the world, this is the T-Shirt for you. And by confused I mean those of you that aren’t too sure exactly what kind of hipster you are. This periodic table of hipsters has got you covered!
Do you often have difficulty categorizing or describing yourself and your hipper-than-thou friends? Do you sometimes find yourself wishing you had a handy cheat-sheet on hand whenever you’re down at (insert local indie bar here) catching the latest Pitchfork-approved flavor of the day before they sell out and sign to a major? Never fear: brush out your ironic mullet, put on your vintage horn-rims, pull on your favorite pair of skinny jeans, and throw on this Periodic Table of Hipsters t-shirt to ensure that you always have the reference you need at your disposal.

Knight: Headphones by Modus Collection.Pros: There is definitely a lot to like about this particular T-Shirt from Modus Collection. First of all, I think it is the strongest design of the six T-Shirts in the fall 2010 collection. The T-Shirt itself is a 50% cotton/50% polyester blend and is very soft, however, I wish they would mention what type of T-Shirt blank was used. I love that the tee is tagless and instead features a screenprinted neck label instead. Another great feature of Knight: Headphones is the custom embroidered tag on the lower left seam of the T-Shirt featuring the Modus Collection logo. Finally, I should note that the T-Shirt is shipped in a separate sealed plastic bag to protect the tee during shipment. Also, Modus Collection uses custom mailers which provides a nice professional touch. I’d also like to note that I was rather impressed with the various promo shots featuring the different Modus Collection T-Shirts. A lot of times, product shots are an after thought. That’s not the case here, they obviously put thought into selecting models and backgrounds, I just wish other brands would do the same.
Suggestions: My biggest concern when it comes to the current crop of Modus Collection T-Shirts is the price of the product. I feel as if Modus Collection is marketing their tees as a premium product (which is fine and other indie brands definitely do this as well) and the price point definitely reflects that. Despite this, I feel the price point is a bit much. I should note that there is nothing wrong with a high price point and in fact I have reviewed tees that are priced above $30, $40 and even $50. However, if you do have a high price point, you better impress. At this price point ($38), I would have expected a custom cut T-Shirt, intricate packaging, and even custom hangtags. I think that the background story and theme of the line is great, but, I think they either need to 1. drop the price a little, or 2. provide a more premium experience so that buyers feel as if they are getting their money’s worth. Some examples that I can point to that offered me a wow moment when opening the product include Maiden Voyage, Excess Is OK and Fur Face Boy. Each of these brands sell their T-Shirts at a premium price, but the difference is that when I received these products I actually felt as if I was opening a premium product. Having said that, my biggest suggestion would be to 1. improve on customer experience.
The Doctor Is In by Doctor Hazmat.Pros: Doctor Hazmat fans, we are back with the third and final Doctor Hazmat T-Shirt! The great thing about the Doctor Hazmat line is the cohesiveness. I love how he had a theme and stuck with it. Collectively, all three designs work together. Nothing feels fragmented or oddly placed with Doctor Hazmat, it just works. In the future, I’d like to see the brand step it up in other aspects such as packaging. I think some great things can be done with this science/mac scientist theme and Docotor Hazmat is definitely moving in the right direction. Now go buy some Doctor Hazmat T-Shirts while you still can!

What kind of nerd are you? According to this new Threadless tee by Riccardo Bucchioni, there are 9 major nerd types:
Comic Book Nerd
Let’s see, if I had to classify myself into a specific class of nerd then I would have to say that I am most likely a Science Nerd. Though, I am pretty sure that I could hold my own against Movie Nerds and Computer Nerds (especially those that subclassify themselves as Apple Nerds). What kind of nerd are you?
By the way, this T-Shirt reminds me a bit of this little infographic that I posted more than 2 years ago. Geeks rule the world!
WARNING: expect to see a LOT of comic related geekery for the rest of the week in celebration of Comic-Con 2010!

Thursday (July 22, 2010): Super Manatee. No comic convention would be complete without someone sporting the blue tights, red undies and cape! Be different and be bold. Pick up this Superman/Manatee mashup tee!
Friday (July 23, 2010): There’s No Place Like Space. The Wizard of Oz meets Star Wars. Yes, that happened.
Saturday (July 24, 2010): Batkid. This Batkid looks like like he’s ready to tag something. Thug much?
Sunday (July 25, 2010): Cat-A-Tar. I really enjoyed Avatar, but in all seriousness, if the Avatars looks a bit like the Cat-a-tars below, I might have loved the movie that much more. Maybe. Now I’m thirsty for some milk!
Out friends over at Made With Awesome recently posted a few photos from their recent adventures at the Pride Day Festival at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia. In fact, that’s were they released their latest T-Shirt design, the very colorful, Gay By Birth Proud By Choice tee. The shirt is printed on Gildan 100% Cotton Ringspun Tee , but the excited part really is the “rainbow color” effect shown in the preview image. The effect is created by mixing inks during the screen printing process so that every shirt is unique. Cool! The shirt should be available on the Made With Awesome website for purchase real soon, so keep your open for them.
Below you’ll also find some image sof the Made With Awesome team, Roni Lagin and Evan Ferstenfeld at the Pride Day Festival, sporting their sexy Made With Awesome threads. And at the very, very, very bottom of the post you’ll see the latest Made With Awesome print, it’s called Historical Superheroes and it is … pure awesome. Here’s your task, figure out all five superheroes! Historical Superheroes is available now from Made With Awesome for $15.
Infographics are all the rage on the Internet, but no one does it better than Dr. Sheldon Cooper of the Big Bang Theory.
It’s not surprising that when Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory decides he needs a new friend (Bawwy Kwipke, because of his wole with the Open Science Gwid Computew), he approaches the problem scientifically. Because we all occasionally need a little help doing that, we’ve reproduced his flowchart on this shirt. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to follow the arrows when you’re wearing it so you either need to convince an extant friend to wear this shirt with you (which can lead to awkward questions) or rig a series of mirrors. We recommend the mirrors. It involves fewer humans.
