Here is yet another t-shirt company we just recently discovered, Orange Shag. This one has some shirts that are a little crude, and many that are retro. Flashdance and Class of 80 are some examples of this. Many of their tees are ringers, which you all know the Shirt Snob loves. Some of our favorites on this site include Pirate, Red Star, and Bahamas. They also have men's tees, sunglasses, belt buckles, posters, and more.

Now normally the Shirt Snob would not be interested in a t-shirt that is $130, but we are obsessed with owls right now, so we can't help it. The Owl Crew by Joystick is a little on the young side (we're not so sure about the shiny star patchwork on the bottom as well as the lightning bolt on the left shoulder), but the owl embroidered in the center of the tee we just love. On the back the words "Who Loves You" are also embroidered with more stars. If you don't mind that the shirt is a little busy, this might be a good one to consider. Comes in two colors, mint and white.

It's that time again, time for more Threadless tees. This week our favorites include Kabuki Fish, Psychedelephant, and the reprint Miss Scarlet in the Hall with a Revolver. Also check out their new contest, it has to do with the upcoming movie Little Miss Sunshine, one that we are looking forward to seeing this summer if the Shirt Snob baby will let us. The Create your own trend contest ends on July 10, so get your submission in before then!
T-shirt companies seem to be coming out of the woodwork suddenly. We keep finding more and more that we like (and a few we don't like too). Here's one that we think is pretty neat. Edoc Laundry wants to bring together fashion, tech and entertainment all into one brand. Their clothes have "nothing to hide." As their website states:
Our garments feature vivid street culture/music-oriented graphics, custom
stitching, distressed cuts, and prints that "defy" seams. But the real
kicker? Each shirt has hidden codes that unlock covert pieces of a crazy
murder mystery on the Web. Our motto? There's more than meets the eye -- if
you're smart enough to look a little deeper.
We just say that we are intrigued. The Da Vinci Code phenomenum now has entered the fashion world!
The company sells womens and mens clothing as well as hats. The shirts we like the best are Flying Colors, Rock Angel, and Floral. We really wish there were real pictures of the shirts though, it's hard to see how it truly looks from a drawing. Also, make sure to check the availability though, not all the shirts are available in all sizes and colors. And please let us know if you understand the clues hidden in the clothing, we don't see anything.
Edited to add:
Here are two pictures of this actual shirt. We found out that the key is on the shirts. Once you figure it out, you go to their website, put the code in, and you can watch part of an episodic murder mystery. Pretty cool! With their new line in September will come more shirts with more codes and more of the mystery!

Well, the Shirt Snob is having a bad day, but we were lucky to get some news that makes us happy. Threadless has more shirts out, and we really like them all! Since we like to choose favorites, we'll say that HI (also available in kids sizes), Oh My Virgin Eye, Not So Treacherous Waters, and Decay (which would have worked really well over at Oddica too) are the ones we like the most out of the new prints. We also like Psychedelic Creatures from Threadless Select and the reprint Ask Me How I Became a Pirate.
Don't Talk to Strangers over at Busted Tees is finally available in women's sizes. About time, we love this shirt!
Oddica, who we wrote about last week, has come out with eight new tees. Our favorite is definitely Tape Bird. They are also having a sale. Buy one shirt at $20 (their standard price), two shirts at $27, and three or more for only $12 each. This goes until July 7th. Oddica was also kind enough to send us a tee to review, hopefully we'll get that up this week as well!

There's more new at Threadless. This week we like Homeless (we love owls, poor little guy), Illusion of Rabbit Optical, Granola, the reprint Rocketbird (also available as a kid's tee), and the Type Tee Death, Our Nation's Number One Killer. There's also a contest going on to find the best unique shirt, which means
No drips, no hearts, no skulls, no birds, no over-sized animals, no internet cliches, no clusters of random things, no pirates, no ninjas, no ironic references to 80s pop-culture, no 45-degree angles, and for the love of all that is holy - no more talking food!
So hopefully we'll soon be seeing a ton of new designs unlike anything we're seen before!

There is a new t-shirt company out there that we must share with you all. Oddica is what it sounds like, a place for odd t-shirt designs. They are all similar to the artsy ones over at Threadless, some a little more disturbing than others. But all are very artistic, so we can't help but love each and every one. Right now our favorites are Sheltered, The Undertaker, Bluebird Migrane, and Above it All. They have a bunch more coming in the next few days as well (we're excited for Tape Bird), with more after that. There is a great page about all the designers which includes their personal websites, kids tees are coming next month, and they have a great program for the artists, so if you are a designer, consider bringing your stuff here. All shirts are printed on American Apparel, and there is a June sale. Buy one tee for $20, two for $30 and three or more for $14 each.

Otter from Punch Apparel wrote the Shirt Snob a while ago to tell us about his t-shirt site. We think it's pretty good, so we thought we'd tell you all about it too. Their shirts appeal to the 20 somethings of the world, with designs such as Old Enough and Thousandaire. They also have a few state/country joke shirts similar to what other companies have as well. Besides women's tees, they also sell men's shirts. Our only issue is that they don't say how the women's tees run in size, only the men's. So we don't know how they fit. However, you can exchange if the tee is the wrong size for you. Also make sure to check out their blog while you're at their site.
