Leave it to the quick witted folks over at Busted Tees.com to jump on the Sanjaya bandwagon. Even if you don’t watch American Idol you’ve likely had to hear about Sanjaya Malakar with his pony hawk, flamboyant style and marginal singing. If you have heard Sanjaya sing you fall into one of two camps – you think Sanjaya sucks or you like Sanjaya because he’s so bad (and you’re a 12 year old girl). Whatever the case get yourself a Goodbye-a Sanjaya t-shirt while the craze lasts. The Sanjaya tees are available for preorder now and will ship April 6th.
For CafePress shop owners we thought we’d pass along news of new merchandise¬† now available. Plus-size scoop neck and v-neck for women, along with dark and light colors for kids and pastels for toddlers. If you haven’t been following CafePress over the last year or so, and only know them for white merchandise, those days are long gone. They can now print on a variety of colored materials and have done a nice job of expanding their merchandise line. For information on selling shirts through CafePress visit here.
Nerdy Shirts has put together a Digg badge shirt that will likely confuse the hell of the average Joe. For experienced Digg’ers it will probably get a good laugh considering the guy has only 1 Digg which is likely from that second Digg account he keeps so he can Digg his own posts. Still pretty funny though.
When you have a chest like Christina Model’s it’s a little hard not to stare. But we’ll try. This funny tee (and large breasted model) comes courtesy of DeezTeez.com. Aside from this funny tee, and a few more snapshots of Christina Model, they’ve got a lot of funny and offensive tees. One that I just caught and missed before is a spin on George Costanza’s Vandelay Industries – An Import/Export Company… Purveyor of fine latex products. I could go on, but I won’t. Hit em up.
I see a lot of shirts writing this blog. There’s a lot of funny stuff out there, but a lot of it looks the same. After a while you really feel like you’ve seen everything before. Needless to say it’s a rare thing when I hit a site and instantly laugh out loud. IsMyHomeGirl had me laughing. I defy you to look at Barack Obama in lipstick and earings and not laugh. The shirts are an interesting twist on the political tee. Bold, graphic, ridiculous and memorable.
One of the nice things is that they have tees of so many political figures. It’s not just the poll leaders. So if you’re looking to support (or poke fun at) Sam Brownback, Tom Vilsack or Duncan Hunter you’re in luck. And of course t-shirts of your typical targets like Barack and Hillary.¬† The companion site IsMyHomeBoy features the same set of portraits minus the lipstick. So whether you consider Barack your homeboy or homegirl you’re set. And as with all things political you can get stickers and buttons, in addition to shirts, ties and mugs.
Hands down, one of my favorite shops is the The Ryde. I grew up in SoCal and spent more than my fair share of time hangin in HB. The hand-drawn surf-styled tees of The Ryde couldn’t capture it any better. Couple picks for this post are the Foam T-Shirt – love the Gray on Black. And a bit of a variation on the riding theme – the Moto Tee. It’s got a cool graphite hand drawn look to it, even though it’s photo. Check em out at TheRyde.com
When it comes to celebrities in t-shirts there is always underlying humor. Take Ashlee Simpson sporting a Led Zeppelin t-shirt. I’m shocked she listens to Led Zeppelin, let alone could spell it. A while back we spotted sister Jessica wearing a different Led Zeppelin concert tee. So who’s borrowing from who?
Peter Stormare may not be Paris Hilton, but he’s got good t-shirt taste. Peter’s photo comes from the Premonition movie premiere. The Beatles t-shirt is a classic. Not really red carpet fashion, but hey, it’s the Beatles.
You may not be the least familiar with Alex Sim-Wise, or Alexandra Simwise, (whichever you choose). But this video of her wet tshirt photoshoot will definitely make you a fan.
This isn’t the first we’ve spotted Madonna wearing Ed Hardy. A while back she added to our collection of celebrity t-shirt sightings with this Skin design shirt. She seems to be a fan – like just about every other celebrity. Justified I guess, Ed Hardy’s got some cool stuff. Check out his site, if you’re unfamiliar. Tattooes as well!
