We just found a guy who took a tour of the Threadless offices. If you've ever been interested in where all the Threadless magic happens, take a look!

Saks Fifth Avenue recently sent the Shirt Snob an email about their new list of top trends for spring that they are calling Want It! These nine must-haves are to help women plan and buy their wardrobe for spring. They've also told us about a sneak peak video of Want It! There is only one shirt trend in the mix, the crisp white shirt. But if you're interested in your entire wardrobe and not just your tops, definitely check it out. Also, from now until March 25, get free shipping on your orders of $150 or more when using the promo code "WANTIT" at check out.

We just discovered there's a bit of a controversy over at Threadless. It looks like someone submitted a design for a tee that was not their own work, and it's become a huge issue over there. Threadless has a little write up about the situation. Luckily, the tee, called Tagged, is still available, but we're doubting it'll be reprinted. So if you like it, get it now.

70 Star 7 is a company whose mission is to "see the world positively impacted by giving to charities and our individual communities using creativity as the platform." They do this through shirts, shoes, skateboards, and other items that artists can use and mark up. Right now they have a few t-shirts for sale with 50% of the proceeds going directly to charities, a different one for each tee. More of the proceeds go to someone the artist knows who is in need in his own community. Unfortunately, the company only seem to sell men's tees. Since it's for charity, we thought we'd tell you about them anyway, but hopefully in the future they'll remember us women!

We aren't sure if you heard this latest shirt news, so we thought we'd bring it to you just in case. The actor that played Screech on Saved by the Bell is in danger of losing his house. Dustin Diamond needs to pay $250,000 in order for the house not to forclose. So he is autographing shirts with his face on them and selling them at $15 to $20 each. You can either buy a shirt or just get more info at his website.

Hello lovely readers! How the Shirt Snob has missed you all! As you can probably guess, we gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy named Anderson on April 9th. It's been a bit of an adjustment having a new baby in the house, but we are all doing well and very very happy. Thank you to boss Jay for posting while we were away, we really appreciate it!

What's better than a weekend of shirt shopping? How about a weekend of chocolate and shirt shopping. We were recently looking over some of the more "natural" offerings at Treehugger and came across Vere chocolate.
Manhattan-based Vere (pronounced “very”) prides themselves on being a chocolate company for the modern consumer. They promote quality, health and ecological benefits, while not sacrificing a bit of flavor. Vere uses a single varietal, sustainably grown and harvested bean found only in the Ecuadorian rainforest. These beans are certified by the Rainforest Alliance to be grown without pesticides and in accordance to standards that protect the rainforest and the farmers who grow them.
Okay - now all we need to do is head to NYC and get some this weekend along with some shirts of course. :-)

We can't but recommend pajamas with a small tiger like person who also carries a gun. Take that! 100% cotton pajamas with repeating Tigerlily design and elastic waistband with drawstring will get you through those "tough" nights.

Reading Entertainment Weekly this past weekend, we noticed in their Style column that guns are all the rage now. The Shirt Snob must admit that we didn't know this, we aren't really sure how true it is. Regardless though, there was a tee on the page that had two guns together making what looks almost like a bow. A few stars have worn it, including Rosario Dawson, so we thought we'd let you know about it. The site, Barking Irons, is full of flash, so we can't link to individual pages (nor can we easily get a picture), but they have tees for men and women, with most of the women's sleeveless. After searching through the site, we finally found the tee from the magazine. It's available for men only and called Wooden Pistols. So it may not be up your alley, but if you want to wear clothes from the same place as some of the stars, check the website out. Be warned though, the site is on the slow side!
