iHotto is a t-shirt company that we just discovered that is very unique. Their designs look hand drawn, but that is part of their charm. The designs are cute and fun and we really like them. The Shirt Snob's favorites include Fleur De Lis, Summer Crush, That's So Bunny, and Hanging Heart. They also sell jewelry as well.

Evil Cotton is a new t-shirt company that just started earlier this month. They have a great website that's a lot of fun to look at, using old yearbook pictures as well as celebrity photos around their shirts. Once you click on a t-shirt design, you can choose men's or women's as well as the colors of the shirt on a color wheel in the bottom left hand corner. Their designs are a little too much college humor for the Shirt Snob overall, but they do have some that aren't so dirty we would wear them. Our favorites include I Hate Nature, Morons, and Che Bacca. They have over 60 designs, so there's plenty for you to choose from. We only wish they had better pictures of their tees. The design will pop up when you mouse over them, but we would love to see the design on actual shirts.

We recently discovered Dirty Microbe, we don't know how we never knew about them before. They sell t-shirts for men and women as well as some really interesting Japanese stuff they've found. A lot of their stuff is running out because of the holidays, so we suggest you get over there and snag what you can now. Some of our favorite tees include Communitty Collige, The Other Half is Violence, Zombway, and That's How I Roll. There really are too many to list though.

New Threadless tees came out yesterday. As the Shirt Snob was celebrating Christmas, we didn't notice until now. We really like We Can Fix It, Fallen (In Love), and the reprint We Are Made of Carbon. We hope you all had a happy holiday, and we'll be back with more tomorrow.

The Shirt Snob has tried hard to stay away from showcasing raunchy designs on this site. We may link to a site that has some shirts that are questionable in taste, but we try to focus in on the ones that you would feel more comfortable wearing in front of your grandparents, or at least your parents. However, this new one available for preorder at Busted Tees is pretty darn funny. We'll call it Cut a Hole in a Box instead of it's real name, and we'll let you decide for yourself if you want to look at it or not. If you don't get it, see the reference on YouTube. It was originally a Saturday Night Life sketch, on last Saturday we believe. Just please don't let any young children watch it or we'll feel bad!
The Red Cross Store has some new tees. We did a huge review for them over the summer, and one of their tees is still our most favorite, comfy tee in our entire wardrobe, so we can't write about them enough! Our favorites include Our Boys Need Sox, Heart Attack, and Strong Hearted Woman. All of these shirts are from their new Apparel for Life series, with each design having historical references. For instance, the Sox tee "pays tribute to the World War I and World War II knitting campaigns that provided millions of knitted garments to soldiers overseas and in the United States. The design was inspired by a volunteer campaign circa 1918." Support the Red Cross, and buy some great tees from them today!

Owl Movement has new tees out from their fourth series. We especially like Feather Me Down and Little Humphrey's Portrait. Also, series one is now $12 a tee, and as for the rest, you can buy two tees for $36. This deal ends December 31.

Wolfgang's Vault is a store that sells both vintage and retro tees, mostly of concerts and famous groups and singers. Yes, they seem to know the difference between the two. Obviously the retro tees are more affordable and plentiful than the vintage ones, but if you're really into vintage, this is a good place to check out. There's also vintage gym shorts (we had no idea a market for them even existed!) as well as men's and children's clothing, poster art, photography, vintage concert tickets, and more.
There's some new stuff over at Threadless, and the Shirt Snob isn't really feeling any of it. If we had to choose favorites, we'd probably choose Mozart Didn't Like To Practice Either and Bob Shopping. But we really miss all the good tees that were coming out during their sale, and we hope more good ones will come in the coming weeks.
There is a very unique new t-shirt company out there called innerTee. The way this site works is you browse the artwork on the site, place it on a tee (they call this mixing), save it and share it with your friends, then buy it and wear it. This allows you to use your creative juices and make the tee that you want instead of buying designs you like but don't love. Each design you place on your tee has it's own price, and you get to choose the type of t-shirt, color, where the design goes, and how many you place on the tee. You can also browse the tees that others have made and buy them if you don't want to make one yourself or see a great design. You can sign up for a beta account now to start designing your tees!
