Threadless has a lot of new designs that we are quite fond of, including Pros & Cons, 8-Bit Blues, Real Peanuts, A Vehicle Built for Dreams, and Here Comes the Airplane!. There's also a beautiful reprint, Liberty.
Glennz Tees has a new design, Big Meal.
Finally, Busted Tees has stopped selling woman's sizes. We are quite saddened by this as we know that men's sizes rarely fit a woman's body. Therefore, we are no longer going to write about their new designs. They do have some great designs though, so if you are looking for a present for a man in your life, do still check them out.

We really like the way the Wrap Cardigan by Haute Hippie comes together into a wrap with the two buttons at the front but still looks fabulous when open. It has a shawl collar, long sleeves, and ribbed cuffs. It is made from a cotton, silk, and cashmere blend and is also available in black but is about to sell out in that color.

The Shirt Snob has an obsession and would buy every one she sees if she could. The Jackie Hoodie by Ella Moss is not particularly special, but it is cute and looks quite comfortable. Perfect for pairing with jeans and a simple tee or tank. There are patch hip pockets, a zipper down the front, button-tab detail gathers at the cuffs, elbow length dolman sleeves, and a solid lining at the hood.

We love polka dots, but we haven't seen big ones like on the Racer Back Tank by Pencey in a while. This tank has banding at the scoop neck, racer back, and arm openings and 1.75 inch straps. We especially love the black and white combo.
March 29, 2010
From the front the Jessica Knot Top by Rory Beca is a simple striped t-shirt. But the back is split with two knots. There is also a crew neck, asymmetrical hem, and cap sleeves. We think it's the perfect tee to wear on your way to the beach.
March 26, 2010
The Coquette Corset Top by LaROK is a versatile top that you can wear alone with many different bottoms or under a jacket or cardigan. Dress it up or wear it casually; there are tons of possibilities. There is a ruched mesh overlay, sweetheart neckline, underwire cups, exposed zipper detail at the front, and boning at the bodice. It is lined as well.

The Drapey Tank by Rag & Bone looks like a cotton tank from the picture, but it is actually finally knit and made of tencel and silk. There is pointelle detail at the front and bottom hem, a scoop neck, a deep cowl back that features a tie, and 1.75 inch straps. It is also semi-sheer.

We don't always love the single shoulder strap look, but in the Ruffle One Shoulder Top by Geren Ford, it is really cute. This blouse features an asymmetrical neckline, rounded hem, and frayed and asymmetrical ruffles at the two inch strap. The blouse is also made from a silk and cotton blend.
People Like Me! is a t-shirt company that has some designs unlike any other we've seen. They think people take themselves too seriously and the world not seriously enough, so their designs are witty, a bit ironic, and definitely memorable. We especially like the tee Vain, and they have lots of other funny and interesting designs such as Heartless and Consumer. They also sell men's sizes and bags and accessories. This is one t-shirt site we are definitely going to watch in the future. If they come out with more designs like the ones they have now, they will become one of our favorites!

It has a single hook-and-eye closure at the front, a ruffled tulle peplum, two button closure at the notched collar, three buttons at the cuffs, and long sleeves.

We like the dot print on the Smocked Waist Top by Geren Ford. Up close it reminds us of an animal print, but farther away more black and white swirls. This blouse has a crew neck, smocked elastic wait, single button and keyhole at the back, a shirttail hem, and cap sleeves. It is also 100% silk.
March 15, 2010
The Willow Tank by Ella Moss would be perfect for the Shirt Snob. We adore all the ruffles that are out there right now, but when they are at our neckline, the look is a little overwhelming and we can't pull it off. But this halter has the ruffles at the T-strap at the back. There's also ruching at the scoop neck, gathered elastic banding at the back, and no sleeves. It is lined and 100% silk.
The Iris Blouse by Elizabeth and James would definitely be the focal point of your outfit.

The Sid Top by Oonagh by Nanette Lepore is quite a fun tank with the contrasting elastic straps at the deep scoop back. There's also a scoop neck, layered and unfinished banding at the edges, and three inch straps that loop at the back. This tank is made from a cotton and spandex mix.

March 11, 2010
The back of the Chrissy Tank by Dolce Vita stands out due to the exposed zipper and contrasting placket at the T-back. But it is cute from the front as well with wrap detail. There's also a scoop neck, asymmetrical hem, and 1.5 inch straps. The bust is lined, and it is 100% silk.
Sick for Cute is so familiar to the Shirt Snob, but we cannot find a record of having ever written about them. It's a shame because they have some super adorable designs. According to their website, this t-shirt company
aims to be a super awesome shop that caters especially to adults of all ages who are attracted to the cuter, dorkier, and most supreme things in life!
Those who started this company also ran Kid Pirate, so that could be why their designs do look familiar. Some of our favorite tees are Little Red Riding Hood, Cute Weiners, and Rainy Day.
Here are the new tees that we have liked over the past few weeks. First there is Pet Feeder which is the newest design over at Glennz Tees.
Threadless has some reprints such as One of These Days, We'll Fly Away!, Mmm...Oranges and A Simple Plan. Then there's new designs Fisherman's Find and Sir Rhyddcelot.
Finally, we think In Full Bloom at Brand of the Free is a very pretty design.

Rugby shirts are great because they never go out of style and work with shorts and pants. The White Rugby Stripe Top by Splendid has twisted banding and a single button at the split V-neck, button-tab gathers at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It comes in two colors, tofu and atlantic.
The Elizabeth Camisole by Elizabeth and James looks pretty basic at the front with silk trim at the scoop neck and arm openings. The back however has a neat silk cutout at the racer back. This camisole also has adjustable silk spaghetti straps and a built-in shelf bra. Besides the silk parts, it is made from supima cotton and micromodal, and it is available white and slate.

This blazer has a banded waist, removable tie sash at the waist, buttons at the front, ruched fold-over collar, front pockets, puff long sleeves, and four buttons at the cuffs. It also has stripes throughout and is 28 inches long.
The diamond pattern really makes the New Corset Tank by Elizabeth and James quite interesting and unique. There are underwire cups, seam details, frayed chiffon trim at the top hem, and adjustable spaghetti straps. The bodice is lined, and it is short at 20 inches.

This blouse has a fold-over collar, seven buttons down the front, a patch bust pocket, inverted back pleat, shirttail hem, knife pleats and two buttons and the cuffs, and long sleeves.

The Baretta Kimono Cardigan by Joie is a good addition to your wardrobe because of the 3/4 length kimono sleeves that help it stand out. We also like the extra long length. This also has ribbed bandin at the placket and asymmetrical hem, a self-belt tie at the waist, and rolled edge at the cuffs. It is also 100% linen and sheer.
The Sparkle And Shine Top by Free People is a fun and flirty tank for summer with the added bonus of having an elastic waistband at the empire waist.

This jacket is a great way to stay warm this spring before the temperatures get very warm.

The Wrap Cardigan by Haute Hippie is different than most other cardigans. It has a shawl collar, two buttons at the wrap front, long sleeves, and ribbed cuffs. It is made from a mixture of silk, cotton, and cashmere. We like how you can wear it with jeans, a skirt, or any outfit in between so you will get a lot of use out of it.
The Cross Lace Peasant Blouse by See by Chloe is gorgeous and the basic white color makes the lace up front look feminine. It also has a scoop neck, pintucking at the front, back, and shoulders, ruching and a single button at the cuffs, and short sleeves. The blouse is sheer as well.
