Conjuring up various images from NYC joggers in the ’80s to hip young things in tri-blend, grey marl is infinitely stylish. All Saints’ Dip Dye t-shirt has two-toned sewn panels creating a pleasing layered effect without the bulk.
From the gilded mouth of our My Chemical Toilet Editor, Stuart:
Are you ga-ga over Burial‘s album?
Are you? Really? Or do you feel you have to say that because loads of chinstrokers have? I have to admit I found the album dull. Maybe you need to listen to it on a night bus going through south London at 4am or something to really get into its dubstep vibe. I only travel by limo, so I don’t know if I’ll ever really “get it”.
If you have never heard of The Gumball 3000 then clearly you need to pay more attention to the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The Gumball is a 3000 mile annual road rally frequented by only the richest of the rich who can afford to write off their Lambourghini and pay £60,000 for the privilege.
I’m not sure which came first, the XKCD cartoon or the t-shirt but either way I love it. You can buy the t-shirt for the bargain price of $25 in the US, but UK shipping might make it a little more. Nevertheless it’s a cheap way of declaring Obama-love, especially if you haven’t got US voting rights.
With most brands turning into lifestyle brands, you’ll have to provide a little extra to stand out from the crowd. Cold Method are doing just that with their ‘9 aesthetics’ capsule collection. The Dutch label state that you need 9 essentials for every season, starting with a t-shirt, denim, shirt, trousers, knitwear, suit, coat and an accessory. Check out the collection at their website.
As part of Google Mail, you are constantly bombarded with adverts for whatever your e-mails are about. For me, that is largely fashion and therefore, I receive links to sites such as 80sTees.com. This online store proved to be pretty good; I wasted about half and hour going through the memorabilia.
This t-shirt has a relatively subdued design for Jeremy Scott, the gimp mask is beautifully rendered in a retro-style pencil drawing.
The Incredible Hulk film is out on Friday and features Liv Tyler and Ed Norton as the Hulk. While I can’t promise it will be better than the TV series you can at least pledge your allegiance to old-school Hulk with this ‘Comic Boom’ tee.
When you look at Gordon Brown’s face you realise there hasn’t been a politician as t-shirt friendly as Barack Obama in a long while. Add his vague slogans about change, which lend themselves well to t shirt captions and you have a prime candidate for an ironic t-shirt. Sons of Liberty were one of the quickest off the mark with this Back to the Future inspired top.
With guidebook and ability to say thank-you in tow, I was an innocent tourist. At least that was until I saw him from across the road. The letters emblazoned on his back in plush gold velvet shone with insecurity- “Vagina Lover.” Welcome to testosterone Euroflash-style.
This shirt from Rykiel Homme is perfect for the season. Dark with a touch of colour it is fresh and non-fussy as well as being a quirky classic. From the über stylish Start Boutique, it would honestly work with just about any item.
The Graniph t-shirt competition – which we mentioned a while back – is a great resource for t-shirts that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, like this Gina Gaber tee.
The thing with pictures of celebrity
t-shirts is that they always tend to use pictures of them in their heyday – or
in Michael Jackson’s case, when they had a face that resembled a human being.
Power Al Pacino tee is no different. But let’s face it, no one wants a
picture of Pacino as he looks now on a t-shirt. Even if they loved S1m0ne (if
you know anyone who does love or even like S1im0ne, then call your nearest
mental health institution. Now)
We’re starting to feel like Calvin Harris
here at Brandish. I don’t mean we’re turning into a poor novelty act, just that
we’re obsessed with the eighties and early nineties at the moment. This rocksmith
t-shirt allows you to finally pay homage to Kid ‘n’ Play in a suitable
Everyone knows children are scary right? Their long gangly legs and arms? Freaky. That hungry look they give when they’re waiting for the swings to become free? Unsettling!
