You all know how much we love owls right now. So the Shirt Snob has decided to show you the new owl items at Fred Flare in case you have the same obsessioin. Right now there's owl earrings, an owl necklace, the Pink Owl Henley, and what we're probably going to get, the Hoot Hoot Thermal.

As we told you earlier, we recently received two shirts from 19 23, whom we wrote about last month, to review. They are the Best Friends tees, resembling the charms many girls give each other when they are young. They are cute, and we really like the colors pink and brown together.
The fit is a little tight. We don't remember what size we received, and we can't find a tag in the shirt to tell us, so we don't know if it's tight because it's a medium or if it's a large and on the small side. Either way, it's best for women with longer torsos we think. We also don't know what the shirt is made out of exactly, but it feels like your regular t-shirt. Since we don't have the tag, we also don't know what the shirt is made out of exactly or how to wash it.
Each shirt has a message on the inside that spouts the company's philosophy. The one in the tees we got is "When I am old, you will be older. We will have to determine where our loyalties lie. And if our friendship doesn't work out, we'll bury our charms in the dirt by the big maple tree." The Shirt Snob isn't exactly sure what this philosophy means, but the second sentence sounds like a Harry Potter quote to us, so we like it!
Besides women's shirts, they also sell men's tees.
There are new tees available at Miele Fresca for fall. You may remember we wrote about them last April for the first time. Our favorites are Lady Octopus, and Miss Owl (obviously). They are also having a sale on all their 2005 tees, including a very similar Owl, Night Plume, and Bird on a Wire.

Another t-shirt company is Concrete Hermit. They have a few women's tees, and we really like Monkey Brains and Loaded Wings. This company is across the pond though, so if you're in the US, you'll probably be paying a lot in shipping. But we know that is no matter if you really like a shirt! Concrete Hermit also sells men's tees, pins, and books.

New tees at Threadless today. Our favorite is definitely Mapple vs apy. We feel like we should like Goodbye My Hopes and Dreams..., but honesty, it's a little creepy when you look closely. We also like Sticks of Shame and Mob Musicians, although we aren't sure we'd actually wear either one ourselves.

We recently discovered Teetsy, a t-shirt company, and they have some cute tees we thought we'd show you. We really like Songbird, Squidlove, and Skully. Besides women's tees, they also sell men's tees and prints and they have their own blog.

So the Shirt Snob isn't being very snobby today. We really like a lot of the new shirts at Threadless. This includes Water Tower, Some College Somewhere, Myopia Utopia, A is for Jerks! (which we think works great as a kid's shirt), and the reprints 99 Luftballons and Flowers in the Attic. Their sale is still going on too. How can you not buy a bunch of they are all only $10? We're stocking up for our holiday presents with this sale!

We had a feeling that Threadless would have another sale soon. Their Back to School sale just started, ends in the morning on August 21, and each tee is $10. Remember that their tees sell out fast, sometimes while you are filling your shopping cart, so make sure if you want something specific you get over there soon.
Out of the six new tees, we like Fossil Fuel, M for Monkey, and the reprint The Fast Supper.
The winner of the Threadless Loves Threadless contest is Psychedelic Peacock. There's also a new contest with Hellogoodbye with the theme "Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!"
Threadless is going to have another six tees come out tomorrow and Wednesday, so look for more great tees later this week!

Iron-On Resistance is an independent t-shirt company. They seem really into the art, and the tees reflect that. Regardless of their name, they screen-printed their tees. Our favorites are Ornament Head, Garden Tank, and Punk Girl (which we realize is a departure for us, but we really do like it). They also sell men's tees, handbags and wallets, prints, and pins.

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!
