There are a few new tees at Oddica. We really like Inside. It's a take off of the movie Being John Malkovich, which is one of our favorites. Also keep this site in mind if you want something gory and artsy this Halloween season. They have tons of stuff like that, including their new Zombie Brain Chew tee, which we think is sort of gross.

Remember the American Red Cross Loves Threadless contest? We reviewed the tees back in June. Well, the few tees that are left are now on sale! Get them for $10 at the Red Cross Store. Just for a reminder, the first place winner was Plus, second place was St. George vs. the Dragon, and third was Florence Nightingale. The sale only goes on while supplies last, so don't miss out on these great tees if you did the first time around!
As we're sure many of you are aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a cause near and dear to the Shirt Snob's heart as her mother-in-law succumbed to this terrible disease. We have found some t-shirts that are helping this cause. Shop Bop along with Primp will be donating 50% off their proceeds to the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. There are two different tees, the Breast Cancer Crew Tee and the Breast Cancer Thermal. They both have rhinestone detailing at the shoulders and bottom hem, the pink ribbon print, and are available in both cream and grey. Consider buying one and helping a great cause while you're at it!

It's time for more Threadless! This week we like a bunch, we must be in a good mood! Our favorites include the Little Miss Sunshine winner Fuzzy Wuzzy Just Wants to be Fuzzy, Imposter (great for Halloween), Reach for the Stars, I Am Unique, the Threadless Select tee Mama's Boy, and the reprint Damn Scientists, one of our all time favorites.

There are two new tees at Busted Tees right now, and we actually like both of them. The first is Sparrow is My Co-Pirate, which we like because we loved Pirates of the Caribbean (unfortunately, the Shirt Snob is the only person in the country who hasn't seen the second movie yet), and we all know how big skulls are right now. The other is Ya Herd which is cute, and who doesn't love sheep?

Once again, there are new tees at Threadless. We are more impressed than last week. Our favorites are the winner of the Wired NextFest Loves Threadless contest City Lights, Breaking the Sound of Music, and the reprints Vegetarians are Eating the Rain Forests and What Would Macgyver Do? We like Paper Tiger too, but we're not so keen on the colors chosen. But the reprints make up for it all as they are two of our absolute favorites!

The Shirt Snob has been meaning to write about two of our advertisers for a while now, and because we get caught up in life, we have forgotten. So we're going to do it now before we forget (shocking to find us posting on a weekend, isn't it!). First up is Vintage Edge. They sell both men's and women's tees, and although not all the designs are listed on the girly side doesn't mean they aren't available. You can special order any of the designs in a variety of colors. And that's one of our favorite things about this site, they offer their tees on many different colors. As we believe we've said before, that's one of our biggest issues with Threadless. We always like the design that's on the bright yellow tee, not exactly a good color for the Shirt Snob. Our favorite designs from Vintage Edge are Wally's Whale Tour, Vermont, and Cape Cod. Unfortunately, we just missed a sale of theirs, but we promise to let you know the next time they have one!
Our other wonderful advertiser at the moment is Odditeaz. We love the name, and they also have designs that we really like. They have a great variety of styles of tees. For women, they sell tanks, 3/4 length tees, V-necks, and regular tees. Our favorites include Free Rainbow, Creative Freedom, Embrace Chaos, and Nuture Absurdity. They also sell men's tees and hats, and they also have a blog.
We thank these two great sites for their support!

Threadless has new tees this week, and honestly, we aren't really feeling them. The only one we really like is Narwhal: The Unicorn of the Sea. I guess we are a Shirt Snob at the moment!
The Shirt Snob was lucky enough to be sent a tee from Colin Maguire. They make tees for toddlers, sized 18-24 months through 5T. Right now they sell long sleeved layered looking tees perfect for fall as well as short sleeved tees too.
The tee we received is the All-American Toddler Team design. And we must say right off the bat we love it! Quickly after giving birth, the Shirt Snob realized that our little one looks adorable in this layered look, and our faithful readers will remember that we love the ringer tee look, which this has as well. The contrast banding around the neck has a frayed look. It's well made, well printed, and we cannot wait to start using it (Anderson is a little small for it still).
The best part of Colin Maguire's site is that all the designs are made by children who are residing at The Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health. They provide the latest treatment options for critically ill children and offers a place like home for both the children and their families. Colin Maguire supports the Inn financially (10% of the profits of each t-shirt goes to the Children's Inn) as well as helps to share the spirit of these children and their loved ones.
All the tees are made of 100% cotton, and they launch a new design every month. Each tee comes with an "About the Artist" hangtag. The one we received was designed by Sara. She came to the NIH from Iraq and chose to draw an eagle because it reminds her of America, where she now resides.
We think this is a wonderful cause and the tees are great too, so we highly recommend them to you all.
