NY Times article and Threadless.com
There is an article in the NY Times today about limited edition t-shirts. Here's a quote:
Lately limited edition T-shirts, most likely made in someone's cellar in Brooklyn, have suddenly become the hipster's preferred mode of expression. Whether produced by college pals with studio art degrees or sold by highly organized Web companies like threadless.com - visitors to the site offer ideas and vote on designs, which are then put into microproduction - the limited edition T-shirt has become impossible to avoid.
The Shirt Snob loves that t-shirts are finally getting their due. There are so many new and great websites out there with tees that we think are wonderful, cute, and smart. Not all of them are selling shirts for women, but those that aren't seem to be about to start.
As for Threadless, we have been a big fan of theirs for a long time. We love voting on which ones we like best, which is usually a hard decision to make. Also, if you have a design you want to put on a t-shirt, you can submit it to them. If it wins, you get $750 pluse $250 in credit to the site. Don't forget to check out their full catalog for all of their t-shirts, where they have a blog for every entry. Our favorites right now are My Pet Human and Sweet Creep. If you love their t-shirts, consider signing up for the Threadless 12 Club, where you get a t-shirt a month from them for 12 months for $200. These shirts are made specifically and only for those in this club, no one else can buy them. They produce just enough for those who are members, you can't get much more limited for that price!
