Who doesn't love Hall and Oates? Turntable Labs is featuring several new and interesting shirts including this Hall & Oates number. I'm not sure about the chiffon green, but I do think the pair in a heart is nothing short of perfect.
If the shirt doesn't do it for you - perhaps you should rekindle your love affair with them and get "The Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates" - I know I am.

The Shirt Snob was recently contacted about a t-shirt company we'd never heard of before. Miele Fresca has shirts for men, women, and children as well as tote bags. Each item is hand printed and therefore one of a kind. Some of our favorite women's tees include Flock, Superstar, Flower People, and Prep Skull. And we must say that some of the baby items are very very cute. Turns out these tees are sold right down the street from us, in a store that just turned into a maternity store. We don't know if it's still there, but if their onesies are still being sold at this place, we are definitely going to go buy some there on our future walks with the stroller (which may start soon, the baby is almost here!).

Threadless has teamed up with the American Red Cross for their 125th anniversary. Here's what they are asking for:
Design a tee based on your interpretation of hope, humanity or compassion. The design shouldn’t involve the logo of the Red Cross nor the words “American Red Cross.” Need some inspiration? Click here to learn more about the fundamental principles of the Red Cross Movement or take a peak at our history by visiting the Red Cross Museum. We’ll take the three top tee designs and produce them at Threadless.com. We’ll also offer them at the organization’s online store.
If you are creative, this is a great way to get your design out to tons and tons of people. Threadless tees are seen by a bunch, but with the Red Cross, this'll get out to even more! If you want to see a few of the early submissions to get an idea of what this is about, check out Growing Hope and Rye Ruff Roo (and vote for them if you like them). There will also be prizes, and Threadless will be donating $5 from each "American Red Cross Loves Threadless" tee that is sold. So if you are just interested in buying, keep an eye out for them! Look at the rules and details for more information.
There are also new tees at Threadless with a little something for everyone. For something funny and disturbing, there's Mermaid, It's What's for Dinner. For the math geek in your life, try Hypotamoose. If something more political is for you, Everyone Poops is probably a good one. Then there's Star Light, Star Bright for the dreamer and e for the literary types. Also reprinted is 99 Luftballons. Sometimes new Threadless tees are better than others, but right now there are a ton of great ones. They must have made more room from their sale for all these great designs!

Busted Tees has four new shirts for women. They are I'm so Excited..., Never Forget, Life Begins at 40, and Party Fowl. Now we are sure you all know we don't love Busted Tees quite as much as we love Threadless, but they are a good t-shirt company. All the tops we have from them have been great and high quality. We just wish they would come up with new designs more often, but they are obviously a picky bunch, only holding out for their favorite designs.

Reading Entertainment Weekly this past weekend, we noticed in their Style column that guns are all the rage now. The Shirt Snob must admit that we didn't know this, we aren't really sure how true it is. Regardless though, there was a tee on the page that had two guns together making what looks almost like a bow. A few stars have worn it, including Rosario Dawson, so we thought we'd let you know about it. The site, Barking Irons, is full of flash, so we can't link to individual pages (nor can we easily get a picture), but they have tees for men and women, with most of the women's sleeveless. After searching through the site, we finally found the tee from the magazine. It's available for men only and called Wooden Pistols. So it may not be up your alley, but if you want to wear clothes from the same place as some of the stars, check the website out. Be warned though, the site is on the slow side!

Someone recently emailed the Shirt Snob about Raakmo, an independent clothing line for women as well as men and soon children as well. Some of their offerings are your typical, simple tanks and tees (which while we love them, are a little too common out there for the Shirt Snob to write about), but they also have shirts with their logos on them that we just love. Normally, we are not the biggest fan of a company's logo on clothing, preferring clothing that stand out on their own and makes someone ask where you got it. However, these shirts have such neat designs, we can't pass them up. The Raak n' Roll design on both a tank , two short sleeve tees, and a long sleeve tee, is both pretty and just edgy enough for us. We also love the Raak my World tee, also available in long and short sleeves. And who can pass up the Raak Star tee? The prices are awfully good as well, with tanks starting at $20. Who can beat that?

There's a new t-shirt company out there, one that is dedicated to America's favorite celebrity, George Clooney. The By George! The Clooney Collection at Misters and Misses makes tees that revolve around Clooney becoming President of the United States. While I love the guy as much as the next person, I don't know if I'd personally want him as president. But the tees are funny. Our favorite is definitely "keep the George, lose the Bush" design. The best part is 1% of all sales will be donated to ONE, the Campaign to Make Poverty History. If you're a Clooney fan, you should definitely consider a shirt from here.

You've probably figured out by now that the Shirt Snob likes to promote the independent designers, at least the ones we like. Here's a new one that just started called ktt. There are three cute tees, all printed on our favorite American Apparel. The three shirts are Blackbird, Poppies, and Dear. This is a pretty small site, so you can either email the owner or pay with paypal. Just remember to buy one size up, American Apparel runs a little small.

The $10 t-shirt sale is back at Threadless, but for only until this Wednesday at 10am. So get over there and get shopping wihle it lasts! There are three new tees (we like Midnight Snack and 99 Luftballoons) as well as 10 reprints (hard to choose because there are so many, but Loch Ness Imposter, Chance, Nuts!, and Pandamonium are are tops picks)! The website seems busy, so we're sure plenty of people are taking advantage of this sale now. Don't wait until the last minute or all the tees may be gone!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! In honor of the holiday, we probably should be showing you some green tops, but it's actually harder to find green than you'd think. Maybe it's because we are a little picky about our green on March 17. If you wear green, it should be full blown out green, not jade, not a forest green, but the green you find in a crayola box. And there aren't many shirts out there like that. So instead, we are going to write about a t-shirt company because we want to, and it's our blog after all! That's My Shirt has a ton of t-shirts. If you like graphic tees, this is a place you need to check out. Granted, some of the tees look like they've come from Cafe Press, but there are also brand names like Junkfood Tees. And they even have some Irish ones, such as the St. Pat is my Homeboy tee. See, we tied this into St. Paddy's Day! Some others we like include the Guinness Feeling Lucky baby doll (another holiday tie in!) and a Guns and Roses tee. The site isn't perfect, mens and womens tees are separated for instance, but if you look around, you'll be bound to find something you like.
