Clothing for the depraved, confused, sick and twisted. Death Gob is a UK based shop that has a great selection of offensive, but very funny shirts. The TWA Twat shirt is a great pick and typical of their humor. I like they’re place on the Save the Whale theme. I have no idea what in the¬† hell Shave the Whale would mean, but it’s just funny. They’ve also got buttons, or as they seemed to be called in the UK – badges.

I love the illustrations on Blowout Clothings tees. Beautiful stuff. All of the design work seems to integrate the name, which really makes the brand part of the actual design and more than just the name on the shop. The philosophical connotations of the name are obvious and it works well as a force behind the design. Once again Spreadshirt serves as the backend, which means good shirts and reliable delivery.

Here’s a couple of nice designer bits from Moda Chick Apparel. I like the one shoulder tee with the Chinese Opera design. The pump shirt is great too. Another good looking Spreadshirt store with a custom front door on it. Nice shirts with a feminie designer spin.

Stumbled across an interesting article on AdBusters.com about a small publication out of Toledo Ohio named Clamor that has American Apparel running for it’s attorney’s. The upcoming article apparently makes claims that go against many of American Apparels widely touted hi-brow business practices. I’ll leave our true T-Shirt afficiandos to read up themselves but it looks like a potentially interesting show down. If you’re intersted in learning a bit more about the t-shirts you’re very likey wearing check out our post about Dov Charney, American Apparel’s founder.
