Co-Tee TV Episode 21: Vig Tees, A Better Tomorrow and Manana

In this episode I wear and review Holy Hand Greanade from Vig Tees and review a tee called Manana that was designed by WhatTheFuck for A Better Tomorrow. A Better Tomorrow is my favorite German site and the biggest German T-Shirt contest site. They feature a wide selection of user submitted tees that are fun, wacky, creative and inventive.

This week I continue my summer long series on Ongoing T-Shirt Contest Sites. Every week, I will be reviewing a different tee from one of many different online contest sites. I’ll be discussing how each of these sites differ, how the submission and selection process work and what your rights are as a designer. Last week I covered ShirtFight, so if you missed it be sure to check that one out!

Coty’s Thoughts:

Manana by WhatTheFuck and available at A Better Tomorrow. Good: Printed on an American Apparel tee so it fits well, cut and sew elements including a tag sewn on the lower left portion of the tee with the A Better Tomorrow logo (really love that), package included a set of large and small decals. The print was not the softest I’ve felt but it was certainly not the heaviest, it was a little in the middle (I’m sure it’ll gets much softer after the first wash). Bad: I think if they went tagless this shirt would be perfect. Price: 18,00 € ($25 US).

Holy Hand Grenade by Vig Tees. Good: Printed on an army American Apparel tee, love the design, packaged with Vig Tees stickers. The print on this tee is super soft. Bad: I know I sound like a broken record, but, again, I wish it was tagless. Having said that, I highly recommend this tee based on design alone – it instantly became one of my favorites! Price: $18.00.
