Sky & Space Backpack from Threadless

This is cool. I think I might spend some Street Team points to get this sucka!

“Our roomiest backpack yet has a front pouch and interior laptop sleeve that holds a 15-inch laptop. Constructed from nylon cordura. Padded back and straps. 18 inches tall, 12.5 inches wide, and 9.5 inches deep including front pocket. Custom made in Chicago at Bearse USA. Just 250 available, so grab one fast!”

In 10 days, Threadless received 194 different backpack submissions and the community chose Eric Zelinski’s Space & Sky as the winning design. Only 250 of these limited edition backbacks will be created.

The $85.50 pre-sale price is available until 8/20 as the backpacks are being produced. Make sure to get yours before all 250 are gone.

UPDATE: I bought it (actually, “bought” is a stretch considering I have seemingly infinite Street Team points, LOL).

Threadless $9.99 TeeBBQ Sale

It took a damn Threadless sale to get me to post here again. Damn, it’s been a while. I guess there’s nothing better than a sale to get the ball rolling again.

Never Date An Astronaut

I’m not sure why, but whenever I need to spell the word “astronaut” I always initially want to spell it “astronaught.” Maybe I eat too much doughnuts? Wait, it’s donut. Shit. Anyway, this awesome tee by Katie Campbell is the perfect shirt for anyone with aspirations of exploring space or maybe just need, well, more space.

Never Date an Astronaut is available now from Threadless for $20.

I Can Has 101 Funny LOLcat T-Shirts???

As long as there is an Internet there will be dozens of mis-spelled cat memes floating around. Let’s face it, the cat is the official mascot of the Internet. No one or thing is bigger than those furry felines of mischief roaming InternetLAND. Well, maybe Double Rainbow Guy. Don’t be fooled though, everyone in the know acknowledges that Double Rainbow Guy is actually a cat disguised as a human. It’s the same cat that’s behind the Nyan Cat Phenomenon. Trust me.

I’d love to hear which one of these are your favorites and whether or not you own any of these tees! And if you know of a LOL Cat shirt not on this list then please tell me about it. Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!

The New Old Navy Best-Tee + Mr. T + Anna Ferris

The last time I blogged about Old Navy I was a bit of a grammar Nazi. But we’ll let the past be the past. I’ve long been a fan of Old Navy. I think I bought my first pair of Old Navy jeans in the seventh grade. I’ve upgraded to Levi’s since then, but I still love a good pair of Old Navy shorts and Old Navy and GAP solid color tees have long been a part of my wardrobe arsenal. Now it looks like they’ve upgraded their basic tee to the new Old Navy Best-Tee (I wonder if Threadless will get mad). The best part is they’ve got Mr. T to promote it.

Universe famous actor Mr. T and world renowned Old Navy have teamed up in this brand new infomercial, not yet released to the public. Mr. T’s bestie, dazzling actress Anna Farris, was having major tee troubles. Luckily, it’s Best-Tee to the rescue!

The new Old Navy Best-Tee has been totally reinvented to be the greatest, softest, best-fitting t-shirt in the history of everything. Don’t believe us? Well, think again. Check out these infomercials we made explaining why:

I love these mock informercials! They’re sort of a mashup of those silly Old Spice Man commercials and Threadless’ Ten Buck Tony. Mr. T is awesome as always. Side note: why is it that Mr. T doesn’t seem to age? Anna Farris is actually quite funny in these commercials as well. They picked the best comedian to show off the curve enhancing new Best-Tee.

This is an obvious attempt at Old Navy trying to go viral through the use of social media. The commercials have only been online for 5 days and they already have over 100,000 views each. In comparison, one of Old Spice Man’s videos on YouTube has a staggering 40 million views. Let’s see if Old Nave can achieve THAT kind of online notoriety!

Threadless x GAP Invades A Mall Near You

It looks like Threadless has scored yet another major partnership. In 2010 they hooked up with Thermos and Target Stores nationwide. This year they’ve partnered with GAP and have invaded malls across the United States. I’m sure that this is a huge deal for Threadless that will indeed add nicely to their bottom line. However, I don’t know how I feel about this.

By doing this it’s as if Threadless is losing that element of exclusivity that made them special for me. Or maybe they’ve already lost that exclusive element and I’ve just been ignorant to it. It no longer is the case that you need to be in the know when it comes to Threadless. With the new GAP partnership, any Tom, Dick, and Jane can walk into one of the 3,248 GAP stores spread across the United States and pick up a Threadless T-Shirt.

Of course, this is great for the designers and the exposure that they will be receiving. It must be a seriously cool feeling to walk into a GAP store and see your hard work on display. However, is Threadless spreading itself too thin? Do they risk becoming another Quicksilver, Hurley, or Billabong? I mean, there’s nothing wrong with Quicksilver, Hurley, and Billabong. Except my mom knows about each of those brands. Heck, my grandma probably does too. They aren’t exclusive brands like, or maybe how, Threadless used to be. Maybe Threadless has grown and no longer wants to be a niche brand that caters to the small crowd of artists and designers littering the Internet. Maybe Threadless wants world domination. Whatever it is, I just hope that Threadless tees never end up on a shelf at my local Wal-Mart. That, my friends, would be fucked up.

With that said…where’s the nearest GAP?

I Got $5 On It: Badass Abraham Lincoln

It’s been a while since I’ve featured an Abraham Lincoln T-Shirt. What’s the hell is wrong with me. It’s okay, this is fixed with THIS T-shirt designed by Tim Shumate and available now from Threadless. Say hello to thug Abraham Lincoln, complete with tattoos, ear stretchers, and wife beater. Mary Todd Lincoln would be so proud.

By the way, you all should be ready for the barrage of Abe Lincoln tees over the next few months. Why? New movie coming soon, it’s called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. If you haven’t read it yet then you’re missing out.

I Got $5 On It is available now from Threadless for $20.

LIFE Cardigan by Threadless Select: Ultimate Gamer Cardigan

A few days ago I reviewed the 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt from ThinkGeek. I really dug that tee, however, if you’re looking for something a bit more fancy or Geek Chic then look no further than LIFE by Matt Leyen. This cardigan is so understated, relaxed, and cool. You’re a gamer, but you’re not screaming hardcore gamer when you use this cardigan. I admit, this cardigan is sexy.

LIFE by Matt Leyen is available now from Threadless for $44.
