It's not very often that the Shirt Snob laughs out loud when spotting a t-shirt, but we must say we did when we first saw Everybody Loves Ramen from Toasty Tees. This company just recently started, and they have six designs for sale right now. Each is available in a few different sizes and colors for both men and women. Other designs we like include the Recycling tee and Pawned.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
The Shirt Snob just discovered Ravenswood, a new t-shirt shop online. Right now they have six tees for sale that are all cute, our favorite definitely being the Takeoff tee. It reminds us of something, like an ad we saw in the 80s or something like that. But whatever it is, it feels awfully homey to us! Birds and Stars is also very pretty too. We will be doing a review for Ravenswood shortly as well, so stay tuned!

The Shirt Snob was lucky enough to receive a tee to review from bub love, a site that makes "hip tees for moms, dads & bubs." And as we're a mother, we couldn't be happier to have one of these tees. Bub love is run by a mother who started making tees for her son after not seeing many cute ones on the market. Quickly her homemade tees drew attention, so she started a business designing tees so that other babies would have cute clothing as well.
To begin with, the packaging is cute. Our shirt came in a brown paper bag with a clear plastic center where the design shows through. We received the love your bub design, which is brown with caremel colored ink. It is printed on American Apparel, which our loyal readers will know we love. We are wondering if the tee seems a little longer than we remember them being, but it fits well and is very comfy.
Besides tees for the parents, there are a bunch for the little ones. They have sizes starting at 6 months and going right on up until the kids are wearing adult sizes. Many of the children's tees have emotions on them too, so you can let the world know you have a happy bub, a cranky bub, or a precious bub. They also have a bag for sale as well.
The customer service is also wonderful. It is a small enough company that they really care about how you feel, and you are a real customer to them, not just a number or order. They are very nice and easy to order from. We recommend them wholeheartedly!
Also, make sure to read our review of a baby tee from bub love over at Super Cool Baby!
There's yet another new t-shirt clothing line that we'd like to tell you all about. We discovered them over the summer, but for the longest time you couldn't buy their tees online. Finally you can! Retro Rags is a t-shirt site that has designs that are centered around entertainment spots of the past. They have four cities that they use as inspiration for their designs (Chicago, Detroit, New York, and LA), and as the Shirt Snob lives in Boston, we don't know much about any of these places. However, if you live in one of these cities or are familiar with them, we think they might interest you. We like the designs either way. Our favorites include Tequila Mockingbird, Moby's Dock, The Good Times Bar, and Edna Earle's Cocktails. They also sell men's tees and are giving away a free tee a day as well.
An update on Threadless. They have a few more tees out, and we really like Since Forever and Burnout. Remember, they have new tees every day. So be sure to check back every day so you can see what's new.

Oddica has some new tees out, and we really like one of them, Rainbird. The bird is so cute! This is also a great place to buy tees for any guys you have to buy for this holiday season!
Fabric 8 has some new tees out. The Shirt Snob likes Multi Colores Tee, Familia Faces Tee, Skullflower Tee, and Flowering Heart Tee. They also have some new men's tees as well.
We're going to make this week a casual week as the Shirt Snob thinks holidays are a great time to stay inside with family wearing what we all feel the most comfortable in. Next week we'll be back to our normal mix of shirts, but for now, enjoy a short week of relaxed tops! Agui is a t-shirt company that makes shirts that represent art from different regions of the world. Their first stop is Mexico, and they have a four great tees in this collection. We really like Guadalupe and Libertad the most, but they are all good designs. You can also be a bit creative with their tees as each is available in five or six colors. They also sell men's tees. Agui's next collection will be Byzantine, and we can't wait to see what it includes!

There's another shirt company out there that lets you design your own tee specifically for you. DNA Stylelab allows you to choose between a long and short sleeved tee, each having a variety of colors you can choose from as well. Then you choose your design from a bunch of different artists. You can make the design as big or as small as you'd like, place it where you want to, you can play around with the colors, and you can even place more than one design on each tee. For those of you who like to be creative, this is a ton of fun. They also sell men's tees, clocks, mouse pads, coasters, and wall art.
