1980s Pop Culture T-shirt - ¿Quien es malo?
Mister Black Tee
I love finding out about great t-shirt shops online that I’ve never heard of. Spanish t-shirt shop Mister Black Tee is just that. Above are a few of there newer designs with some cool American pop culture references like Ghost Busters. (how many 80s characters do you recognize in the shirt above?)
For someone like myself who grew up watching these 80s movies, it’s really cool to see them reinterpreted in these creative t-shirt designs. (Would these designs be even cooler to me if the text was en Espanol?) There is even a design on the site featuring famous movie directors and one with little anime drawings of retro cartoons. (112 personajes de dibujos animados – desde 1962 hasta 1997)
I’m not an expert on copyright law, but I’d say that they have done a great job with the retro-looking illustrations; alluding to the characters in these movies without getting in trouble for using actual movie names or pictures of actors.
They also have some great paper toys under their “Goodies” section.” Check out their shop at Mbtee.com
If you’ve been here for a while, you probably know that I have a fondness for robots. I also have a fondness for t-shirt sites. Wanna know what happens when both of those worlds come together?
From The Ript site:
Starting this week we are celebrating mechanical beings with “Robot Week”. This will be a great week to view one-of-a-kind tees that feature our cyborg friends. We have 5 rad tees lined up starting at 12:01 AM CST Monday and lasting until this Friday at 12:00 PM CST.
Featured designs are from artists Wotto and Robert Lee. We promise you won’t be disappointed, and each design still only costs you $10 Robo-bucks!. Get your wallets ready, you only have 24 hours to purchase each shirt before they head to our scrap heap… err, graveyard. Check out our teaser graphic for a taste of what’s to come this week!

Your daily commute on public transportation seems like it takes forever, but I bet this bus always gets there early. There’s no wonder why these ‘bots are smiling.
Keep an eye on the guy in row 4, I think he’s up to something.

New from the good people over at Chop Shop is this rock meets robot themed tee that asks: “What if it were the 70’s again and robots ruled the punk scene?”

New clothing line Stabb is set to have their official launch date as December 1st, but they’re going to start pre-orders as early as next week on their first two designs:
In talking about the new line, the founders say: “The idea for Stabb was formed during the summer of 2008. While on their first East Coast tour, band mates Ryan Grandmaison and Jason Dean of Something For Nothing started throwing around the idea of starting a t-shirt line with a strong focus on poultry. That’s right… chickens.” Say what?!
Fortunately for us, they decided to refocus on creating killer, unique designs and offering those for sale.
