TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 3

Every day I come up with a new witty Threadless TypeTees Slogan in hopes of earning a Threadless Alumni Club Medal of Honor. At the end of every week I post a round up of that weeks slogans here on my blog. What can you do to help the cause? Vote! Just click on a slogan (preferably all of them) and then vote by click “I’d Wear It!” – it’s that simple! If you want to see and vote for all of my slogans then just click here or on that photo of me with the Rockband guitar. Vote for me and I will make you an awesome bowl of tomato bisque soup if ever we meet in real life.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 3 (January 15 2010 to January 21 2010):

Even Bigfoot knows that the Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist.

I had to resubmit this logo because the original had a typo – oops! [NOTE: If you voted on this slogan on the past please vote again using this link, the older version had a typo :( a big boo boo for any TypeTees submission.]

Nothing clarifies the mind like meditation, beer and failure.

And sometimes a really, really long timeout works wonders as well.

I’d love to have interchangeable facial features sans potato.

Of course Mr. Potato Head was the inspiration for this slogan! I’m excited for Toy Story 3, anyone else share in my excitement? Plus, if facial features were interchangeable, would that make makeup obsolete? I wonder.

Decanting sounds like a very, very naughty word.

I’ve been reading up on wine a lot (for my drink culture blog check out Call Me Thirsty) and I realized that “decanting” sounds like something a very naughty person would do. Decanting. Say that ten times and you’ll feel sooo dirty.

Toe jams keep me from walking in other people’s shoes.

So I came up with this slogan as I was doing some blogging. It just popped in my head. I liked it and so it’s todays slogan! This slogan makes me sad because I had my wisdom teeth pulled out, all 4 of em, when I was 16!

Donating blood has its benefits: free snacks.

I’m not a big fan of needles being punctured into my skin so when someone suggested a few weeks ago that I donate blood I was taken aback. But then I thought about it … I get to save a life and I score free snacks at the end. Awesome!

Soap: curing foul mouths since 2200 BC.

Growing up, did you parents ever stick a bar of soap in your mouth whenver you dropped the F bomb? Mine never did but I reckon that millions of kids have starting with the Ancient Babylonian kids in 2200 BC! LOL.

Nike T-Shirt Gun

I don’t think words could even give this item justice. Seriously. So I’m going to keep the word count to a minimum so you can enjoy the photos and video. It’s a Nike branded T-Shirt Gun and no, it’s not a concept piece. It’s an actual product that was sold on the Nike website for a cool $1500 (currently sold out).

A Better Tomorrow Presents AirDEXâ„¢ vs SuperSATâ„¢

I always have the hardest time deciphering the German contest site, A Better Tomorrow. But, words or no words, I have to say that the design on this tee speaks for itself. I love it! Before I was even remotely passionate about T-Shirts I was (and still am to a certain degree) madly obsessed with shoes. And this shirt combines two of my favorite things, shoes and shirts! You can pick up AirDEX vs. SuperSAT by AndreaABT from A Better Tomorrow for 22 €.




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.

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).
