Hi Chic Geek,
I'm slightly addicted to graphic T-shirts and I wondered if you could offer up any new labels to look out for summer 2013?
For this one, I'm going to pass you over to Leo from That Should Be Mine who knows his T-shirts.
UnderRepped are a T-shirt brand hailing from Philadelphia and specialise in screen-printed vintage tees - such as the undeniably awesome Tesla T-shirt left. The concept behind UnderRepped is a noble one indeed insomuch as the creative brains behind the brand wanted to give a belated shout-out to pioneering names who they feel like they don't get the recognition that they deserve. The name starting to make sense now? Other names and faces that you can have slapped across your chest with this great t-shirt brand for 2013 include Rene Laennec, Victoria Woodhull and Adolph Rickenbacker. Who they, I hear you say? Google is a wonderful thing, my friends.
Though Parafina are a small independent brand who have a love of the ocean, they are certainly set to make waves in 2013 with their eye-catching collection of printed T-shirts such as the spiffing El Capitan number right. This awesome brand are building a pretty solid reputation for themselves and fashion fans are falling pretty hard for their quirky, hand-made T-shirts and, let's be honest, it's easy to see why! Who wouldn't want a big, beady sea-captain emblazoned on their chest?!
Whilst you may think that a bear riding a bike is something that you can see in any back street circus (and you'd be right), you can't wear a circus (or so I'm told) and that's why Dark Cycle T-shirts are another brand to look out for in 2013. Bikes are cool, animals are cool (for the most part - pigeons are a bit dickish) so when you combine the two via the medium of tee, you know that you're onto a surefire winner. This, my friends, is why I will be stocking my wardrobe with plenty of offerings from Dark Cycle over the next 12 months and so should you be. Offering a wide selection of animals riding bikes (and a few sans both animals and bikes), there is definitely plenty of options with this awesome looking brand.
Thanks Leo, hope this helps, Steve,
