We've been meaning to write about Distro.y for a while now but kept forgetting. They are quite memorable, so we don't know why! Distro.y is a clothing company local to the Shirt Snob, and we have to support our local businesses! This t-shirt company has very unique designs on really cute tees. They really don't seem like every other t-shirt company out there. They also have a scarf and skirt on sale as well that we really like. Our favorite tee designs are Gun, Reincarnation, and Batty. Distro.y is having an end of the year sale right now, and they also sell men's clothing too. They also have a MySpace page you might want to check out.
Crooked Monkey has some new tees out. We especially like Chicago Blows, Girls Are Precious, and Don't Frown Get Down. If you want to know more about their tees, check out the review we did of one of their tees.

Dusty Brand Clothing is having a sale. Buy three t-shirts, get one for free. No code needed!
Palmer Cash is a another t-shirt company that sells vintage tees. We really wonder if anyone truly knows what vintage is, but we're letting that go this time around because we really like a bunch of the tees this company sells. There's the pop culture references such as the Leg Lamp Tee, , and the typical dark Skull Tongue Tee. There are designs that look like they'd fit into the 70s like the 76 Tee, and then there's the pretty, artsy types like the Blown Away Tee. Basically, this site has a lot of variety because the tees come from a few different places (including Vintage-Vantage and their own line), and that makes us really like them. There really is something for everyone. There's also a huge number of tees as well, so you don't have to choose between 12 or 24 different designs. There's six pages of tees with 60 designs a page. We only wish that when we clicked on a particular design, we could tell which designer it came from. They also sell a bunch of men's tees as well as jackets.

The Threadless sale continues, but it ends on Thursday, December 14 at 11am CST. Make sure you get over there soon, who knows when they'll have another? Our favorites include Day of Reckoning, Yeah Attitude (especially on the hoodie), Homework Evidence, Maple Walnut, as well as the reprints The Communist Party, Planetary Status, and Watch the Snow Fall.
It's been almost a year and a half since we've written about Dusty Brand Clothing, so it's definitely time to revisit them. They're doing about the same, selling many of the same designs. However they do have some new ones, or else we just don't remember them from before. Our new favorites are Major League Beirut (a favorite sport on all college campuses) and Top Gun. Of course, we still adore Viva la Bubba too.

There are a few new tees at Oddica we'd like to tell you about. Our favorite is definitely Untitled 2. It's beautiful and on a ringer tee, which we just love. Fawn at Dawn is also really nice, and it's also available on a hoodie. Then there's Bluebird Migrane, which has been reprinted with a larger image.
We just discovered a new t-shirt company Village-Vintage. Just started about a month ago, this company was created to give everyone a chance to buy the special vintage styles typically found only in niche neighborhoods in major cities. They are inspired by the East Village in NYC and their music scene. Right now they have seven tees available to women, all printed on American Apparel. We really like the designs, we only wish we could see pictures on them on the actual t-shirts.
Also, until Friday when you buy two regularly priced shirts, you get a surprise one free. You pick the size, they chose the design. And this works with multiples too. If you buy four tees, you'll get two free ones. You must email them with your order number afterwards, so don't forget that step. Pretty good deal if you ask us!

We haven't written about Blue Platypus in a very long time, so we thought we'd update you on what's new over there. They have a Flowerpot tee in both short and long sleeved varieties which reminds us of their original Dandylion tee that we love so much. They have more varieties of the Dandylion tee, such as the 70s Hoop Dandy and the Dandy Ladies in strawberry as well as a bunch of new designs, including the Trees tee, the Butterfly tee, and the Whale sweatshirt.

Well, the Shirt Snob is just shocked that we've never written about Defunker before. In fact, we went through all of our archives because we just didn't believe it. So we are going to make up for lost time by telling you all about them. Defunker was started by the same people who do Busted Tees. They exist because they want to showcase the great designers out there that go unnoticed. All their tees are printed on American Apparel too. Originally, we thought that they didn't separate between men and women's tees, but if you mouse over each design, it says in the bottom left hand corner who they are made for. The price will also pop up, and this is important because there isn't one flat fee per shirt. Some of our favorites designs include Big City Life, Girl Explosion, and Beetle. You may also notice that some of the designs are also at Busted Tees and Threadless as well. We haven't compared prices, but you may want to.
