T-Shirt Review

Playground Love - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

This shirt is just great. The geekiness of it is perfect and I love the size of the design on the shirt. I was surprised too because usually on larges, the design isn't as big on the shirt as it would be on a smaller size. It just looks great. The only thing about this is that the background elements of the shirt are in a very light color and are kinda hard to see unless you are really up close. Either way, I still like this shirt a lot.

Insomnia - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

This shirt is just fun to have and it looks awesome on the shirt as well. I like how the color turned out a lot and the size is just right. Very nice print on this one and the shirt is just great all around.

Poker Hand Values - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

This shirt was printed with some really thick ink that when you run your hand across the design, you feel every bump. I kinda like it this way though. It's fun to run my fingers through the design and I actually notice that this ink stands up to the washing machine pretty well. I really think this is an awesome shirt and great to wear to a poker game so you don't have to remember which hand is higher, since it's written right on the shirt! The size is great too and I've received compliments on this shirt from a wide variety of people.

These are the kinds of shirts that Threadless needs to print more often. Very often do see the new shirts and do not feel compelled to buy ANY of them because they are just not that great. The design is good, but it doesn't feel appropriate to be on a shirt.

New Tees!!

After Show - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

The new shirts that came out this week are not that bad. Here are my reviews on the new shirts as the reprints are getting hard to keep track of with the new layout. Here they are:

Now I Know My ABCs
This one is really large on the shirt which I think is okay, and the more I look at the design, the more it grows on me. Still not compelling enough for me to want it though, even with the sale.

After Show
I think this design is just awesome! The concept of cleaning up music notes after a show is just so ace! I really like this design and even am considering buying it, but I do have too many brown shirts.

Luckiest T-Shirt Ever
I had a design similar to this (although it was about superstitions) but this one is pretty well done. I like the style, but it doesn't attract me that much for me to want it on me. Nicely done and great concept though.

A Collection of Flies
This one is drawn well, but I kinda don't like shirts like this where there are just a bunch of things spaced apart like this. I get the concept, but these kinds of shirts are kinda getting old.

We're Not Savages
This shirt is beautifully designed. I knew it would be printed when I saw it, but I'm not about to buy it. I just appreciate the design aspect in this design. Very nice and I'm sure this one will be well received by the public.

Roadside Picnic
This design is just beautiful. It also has a powerful message which I think is something great if pulled off correctly, which this one is. It is such a great design. I love the detail in the leaves and stuff too.

Ascending Descent
Face it, this was going to win no matter what. This is some of the cleanest vectoring I've ever seen! I wish I was that good, but I think I'm just lazy. I really love how crisp this design is and eye appealing. Great use of textures too!
