We know that when the big book of New Yorker cartoons came out a year and a half ago, everyone was buying it up like mad. So there must be a market for New Yorker cartoon tees! Each tee is a cotton and rayon blend and has slightly tapered side seams. If you're a fan of these cartoons or know someone who is, they might be for you. The Shirt Snob is probably going to get one for her mother.

There are four new tees at Oddica. We really like Blackbird Migrane (which we thought we'dseen already?) and Wax On, Wax Off the best.
Right now there's a $9.99 sale on t-shirts over at Fred Flare. We don't know how long it lasts, so get over there before it's over!
Maybe the Shirt Snob is just in a generally happy mood today, but we really like all of Threadless's new tees this week. Maybe it's because the Shirt Snob baby is sleeping for a change, and we are a little more generous than usual. No matter the reason, the new tees are Monster Wash, Adultery, Hooray Cholesterol!, Overcoming Childhood Fears (and yes, this is certainly a Shirt Snob fear), and Infinity MPG. We also love the reprint Ambition Killed the Cat.

We discovered the Betty Tee by Rebe recently, and we just love it. The contrast of the orange shirt with the pink and blue flowers on the right side really caught our eye. We think this tee is so cute and fun, perfect for summer. Since we loved this tee so much, we decided to look into Rebe a bit more. It turns out they also has a bunch of other cute tops, such as the Nancy Tee, Burgundy Dalila Sweatshirt, the Zoe Tank, and the Evie Tee. Rebe also makes a ton of accessories (we love the leather tote!) and kids clothing too. Check out the sale items, there's a ton there as well. We are really glad that we've discovered Rebe, we only wish it had been sooner!

Bedlam Clothing is another t-shirt company that caters to the college and early 20s crowd. A few of their tees are a little raunchy for the Shirt Snob (who is beginning to wonder if we've become a little too conservative now that we've become a mother), but there are a bunch that we like. Unfortunately, some of those are sold out though. Our favorite of the ones still available include Ghoste and Ol Skool (for the video game geek in us) and One Love One Heart. All their tees still available are $10 as they make room for new tees soon. They also sell men's tees, and they are all printed on American Apparel.

As usual, there's new stuff at Threadless. Our favorites are My Green Forest, Lonesome George looks for a Wife, Poetic Irony (even if it is a little creepy), the reprint Russell! Hows yer Ma! (probably because of a good friend Russell), and the reprint Time Fades.
Oddica now has tank tops! There are three currently, Tape Bird Tank, Bat Tank, Exploded Boombox Tank. More designs are also coming this Monday.

The good people over at Teetonic were nice enough to send us a tee for review. Teetonic is a site very similar to Threadless in that you are able to rate the designs and comment on them. They seem to have one competition going on at a time, each with a distinct theme. The time that they are in the competition is about a month. And you can certainly submit your design to them as well.
We chose to review Night Owl in black because of our current Owl obsession. The shirts came in a nice, plastic folder with a snap closure and the Teetonic logo going across it. For the pack rats out there, it's totally something you could use as a folder. A sticker with the logo also came in the folder.
We really like the shirt right off the bat. The design is cute (of course, would we say anything bad about owls right now?). It's nice to see a V-neck in a t-shirt, that is so rare. And we really like the fit. We aren't sure who makes the actual tees, but they are a little more true to size than American Apparel and a little less tight on the hips, in case that is important to you. It's also a little stretchy and very comfortable. This tee will definitely be going into the Shirt Snob's tee rotation.
The one thing about Teetonic is that the are located in Scotland. So their prices reflect this a bit. Each one is 20 pounds. We personally have very little idea how much that is in USD, but we do know that they ship to the US. We aren't too sure how much it costs to ship over here or anywhere else, you'll have to ask them that. Or just put it on your credit card and hope for the best!
Each women's tee, unless otherwise stated, is mostly cotton (5% lycra) and a V-neck.
Currently, they only have four women's tees available, but more will be coming in the following weeks.
Soon the Shirt Snob's business partner will have a review of a men's tee from Teetonic, since we figure all of our readers must have men in their lives who they need to buy presents for at some point. Look for that in the next few days!

Today we are combining our normal shirt post with our Accessory Friday post. We recently discovered Lucha Workshop, and we really like their stuff. Their tees come in both a unisex and a women's variety as well as in different colors. All the tees are also hand-screened on American Apparel tees. Some of our favorites include Cloe, Heart, Stars, and Minty. They also have a really funny blog you might want to look at.
Lucha Workship also sells handmade bags. Some of the designs are the same as their t-shirt designs, while others are exclusively for the bags. The Shirt Snob's favorite ones include the Bunny bag, the Spinky bag, the Bluebird Bag, and the Pink Cloud Wallet. Also, if you like something a little weirder, check out their plush bags.
