Threadless + Thermos = Threadmos

It seems that Threadless is experimenting more and more with mediums not related to T-Shirts. First we saw the release of the Threadless themed Griffin iPhone cases, and now the ubiquitous T-Shirt site has hooked up with another big name – Thermos. Now, you’ll be able to find some of your favorite Threadless designs plastered on Thermos branded bottles and lunch bags.

I originally saw these pop on the Threadless 365 Days of Awesome Flickr account, just days before Christmas. I found it a bit weird that they would release such a new product so close to Christmas. I would have definitely bought a couple of these had they been available before I had got all of my Christmas shopping done!

Both the bottles and the lunch bags are priced at $14.95 and are available for purchase exclusively at Target. Yep, that means you can head on down to your local Target store and (hopefully) find a nice stock of Threadless branded Thermos items.

Pirate Dragon

First off, HURRY, you only have 11 more hours (at the time of this post) to score Pirate Dragon at a staggering $12! OK, I had to get that out of the way before anything else – wouldn’t want you to spend 18 bucks when you can score this for a crazy insane price.

Our friend Bo from Tilteed sent this over to me a few days ago, but, I’ve been crazy busy so I didn’t have a chance to post this one. I know, there shouldn’t be any excuses when you’re trying to take over the world with your blog, LOL. It won’t happen again.

Pirate Dragon was designed by the veteran T-Shirt artist, Alex Solis (alexmdc). I’m a big fan of Alex, so, I was a little surprised that I was caught off guard with this design. I’m usually really, really really good at spotting alexmdc pieces. Whenever a new dsign of his pops up at Threadless, I know it’s his before even seeing his name. His style is distinct, and one that I am very envious of. I think it might have been the lack of color that threw me off. Needless to say, it’s a refreshing departure from his previous efforts. I like!

Pirate Dragon is available now from Tilteed for $12. By the way, I heard from a little birdie that Pirate Dragon will be part of the permanent catalog, so don’t feel to bad if you missed it at $12 – you can still score it at $18. Not too bad for a piec eof art on your chest.

And by the way, the guys and gals at Tilteed print everything themselves and like I said my previous post – that extra love and sweat makes for a T-Shirt that is superior to anything a robotic press could make.

Monsieur Eureka Is Back

It’s always difficult to write about Monsieur Eureka because their site, Facebook and 50% of their Twitter page is in French! Regardless, they just just released an amazing collection of fun, colorful and vibrant T-Shirts featuring illustrations that make for some very good eye candy. If you enjoyed the past offering from this Montreal based indie brand, then you’ll enjoy the latest releases, because like before, the prints are very large and the designs are just as wacky.

I definitely love the Monsieur Eureka theme of crazy inventions and kooky potions. My favorite new shirt from the Monsieur Eureka collection has got to Chasse-Larmes (it’s the blue tee below) and the product description is equally as good:

“Pissed to be sad all the time? Just spray one shot in each eye and you’re ready to live a happy life again! Just don’t ask what’s inside this concoction..and you’ll be ok!”

The new Monsieur Eureka tees are available now and are priced at $25 a piece. Go grab some!

Dream Gold Is Hotness

Dream Gold is an indie brand based out Toronto with the mission to share the lifestyle of well-being and supremacy through their love for fashion and the arts. They just released their second line of tees and I have to say that based on the preview photos, it is far improved from their first release. I love how they built on their initial Heart of Gold tee and delivered two tees that are bold and full of fun. They’ve also got a slew of buttons for you to choose from.

The two new tees, Aqua Biceps and Psychowl are both printed on American Apparel blanks and are available now from the Dream Gold online shop. The shirts are priced at $19.95 a piece but you can score both shirts for just $30.95 by picking up the Golden Deal offer. You can actually pick up 2 of any of the four new shirts with the Golden Deal offer. My suggestion – pick one up for you and your girl (or vice versa)! And if you decide to pick something up then use the coupon code “COTY” and score 15% off your entire purchase! With the coupon code the price of the Golden Deal offer drops to about $25 – such an awesome deal!

A week or two ago I received a package from Dream Gold so expect to see a review of one of their new shirts on Co-Tee TV very soon!

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 bake you your own strawberry shortcake if ever we meet in real life.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 4 (January 22, 2010 to January 28, 2010):

If MacGyver was in a pickle, he’d probably eat his way out.

Forget duct tape. His teeth would be his greatest asset if ever trapped in a pickle.

Pilates keep pirates busy when they aren’t pillaging.

Nice use of P’s don’t you think? I don’t do pilates but then again, I’m not a bonafide pirate. I wish I was a pirate, though.

I’m sure grass grew fine before humans existed. Save water.

Every morning on my way to work I encounter a man. A man that loves to water his grass. He loves to water his grass a bit too much. He waters his grass a lot. In the morning and in the afternoon. This man should save water.

Strawberry fields forever means one thing: infinite shortcake!

Another Beatles infused theme. I love the Beatles and was listening to this hit when I came up with this slogan. Strawberry shortcake – who’s a fan? I am!

Lycanthropes: always ready for a good costume party.

Ahh, the werewolf. Growing up one of my favorite movies was Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox. I recently bought the Teen Wolf & Teen Wolf Too DVD ($12 at Amazon) and although the movie wasn’t as “great” as I had remembered it as a 6 year old, I still had a blast laughing at the 80’s.

Evil people cut grass and actually enjoy it.

I’m sure that our favorite serial killer, Dexter (The Complete Third Season, $24 at Amazon), experiences some sort of weird gratification when cutting grass. It’s just a hunch.

Imagine if keyboards actually hit back.

If keyboards actually fought back then things could get nasty, especially since they have over 100 keys on the standard keyboard.

Water the Summer Sky

What happens when you mix a water sprinkler with outer space? Well, you get Water The Summer Sky from ReThink Clothing. How many of you used to run through the sprinklers as a kid? I remembering doing that whenever we’d set up the huge blow up pool in the yard and I’d always have a blast. The only thing better? Skinny dipping under the moon in the pacific ocean (not that I have any experience doing this). Anyway, another great shirt designed by Zach Davenport, the same artist that designed Weather Wiper and Meteor Shower for ReThink Clothing.

Water The Summer Sky is printed on an American Apparel blank in both silver and mint colorways and is available for sale now for $18.99 but remember to use the code “COTY” at checkout and you can save 20% on your entire order!
