Collections of great tees around a central theme.

5 More Really Great Obama Shirts

Since we did our first post about awesome Obama shirts, we’ve found even more great designs and had a bunch of submissions to the site.

So here’s part II, with five more outstanding designs!

1. There’s Something About Berry

Something About Berry

Super-clever concept that’s been well executed. Lots of different designs available around the same theme. $25.00 BUY NOW

2. Hope

We really dig the clean simplicity of both the designs offered through this shop, but this one is our favorite of the two (and not just because they’re one of our advertisers). $19.95 BUY NOW.

3. “Yes We Can” Around the World

Around the World

It’s no secret that the rest of the world heavily supports Obama. Now, no matter where you are you can wear your support. Through cafepress and spreadshirt (if you’re in europe) you can pick up one of these shirts in one of 10 different languages. BUY in the US or EUROPE.

4. “Yes We Can”

Yes We Can

Most of the shirts on this site are only so-so, but this one fits the bill for being cleanly designed and straight to the point. Tons of different styles available.

5. Restore America (vintage)

Vintage

One of the more expensive designs out there, we still really dig this one because it’s printed on a cool baseball tee and has a great vintage feel. Plus, the site says a portion of all proceeds will go to the Official Barack Obama Campaign. $35.95 BUY NOW

5 Really Great Obama T-Shirts

“Nearly everyone is getting used to seeing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s official message on TV. But some people are seeing him on unofficial wares. Obama’s face is emblazoned on thousands of graphic T-shirts sold online, on street corners and in chain stores. For some, the icon is all about Obama’s message, for others it’s simply a hip fashion statement.”

The excerpt above is from a Chicago Public Radio story about Obama’s transition from political candidate to pop culture icon, with his likeness appearing on everything from t-shirts to trinkets.

The wildfire spread of unofficial goods can partly be attributed to the popularity of Obama’s message, but not entirely; we’ve had popular candidates before.

What we haven’t had before, though, is a candidate with such a strong brand right out of the gate. Obama’s camp is also the first to completely grasp the potential of the internet as a vehicle for campaigning and have done a better job harnessing it’s viral and social natures than any of it’s competitors.

The result? Well, enough shirts for us to do a round-up of awesome Obama tees (in no particular order, of course):
