Coast of the Titans: Visit Joppa: Here’s a pretty sweet design inspired by the original Clash of the Titans movie.
Starting with one of those tropical shirts that tourists wear, designer Hillary White made something pretty cool by incorporating Titans imagery including the bad-ass Kraken, and Pegasus; changing the tropical location to Queen Cassiopeia’s city of Joppa. (hey, maybe she’ll do another one featuring that mechanical owl, Bubo?)
The distressed filter on the design adds to the retro feel, reminding us this tee is clearly based on the original 1981 version of the movie.
Release the Kraken! (sorry, I had to say it) For sale over at teefury for one day.

The retro look of this shirt is what caught my eye, but the backstory is what hooked me to feature this shirt. It’s to raise awareness of Mozambique having the lowest life expectancy in Africa of 31 years, hence the Mozambique 31.
Since Mozambique was the country that inspired all of this, the Sons of Stolen are putting 20% of the money from the sale of the shirts towards building an orphanage in Mozambique. Instead of giving the money to a charity, we will go to Mozambique with a group of volunteers from the design industry and build an orphanage from the ground up. We hope that this will help us better understand Africa and that a personal interaction with the local population will inspire everyone involved to keep working towards solutions to the many problems facing that continent. More information about this project will be available soon.
If you can’t make the trip to Africa to help out, you can buy a shirt and help make it happen.
You may not be able to tell from the slick web 2.0 look of the PCT (that’s PopCultureTees for the uninformed) site, but we’re HUGE fans of vintage and retro goods and design. So when we got an email about the tees sold by Vintage Roadside we were thrilled.
These guys resurrect vintage design from the heartland and roadsides of America and put them on tees. Best part is that every design has a real story behind it.
