One Hundred Percent Cotton

I’ve written about Threadless on several previous occasions, and I’ve already been criticized for writing about them too much. I have to admit, they are pretty easy to blog about considering their fresh monthly releases and reasonable prices. Also, judging by the Street Team points I’ve accumulated so far Threadless has exactly the kind of unique and creatively designed tees people want to see, and buy.

I do have one pretty serious beef with Threadless. Most of the guy’s tees are printed on a Fruit of the Loom 50/50 blend, not 100% cotton like most of their other products (maybe that’s the reason why Girl’s tees cost $2 more?). Although some people don’t have a problem with this, I find the material rather coarse and the polyester blend wears warm over a full day. That’s why I am devoting this post to designs fully available on 100% cotton products.

UPDATE: Threadless has switched to proprietary cotton t-shirts that are much more comfortable, although they do run rather small in size.

Threadless Select tees are designs submitted by professional artists and designers, and unlike the regular competition winners they are printed on !00% cotton American Apparel t-shirts for both guys’ and girls’ sizes. The downside is that they cost $10 more than the competition winners, but if you are wannabe geek like me you’ll definitely want to roll the dice on this Revenge of the Nerds styled tee before the limited stock runs out. Accept no imitations!

There’s actually quite a lot of hoodies now available at Threadless, but not everything that looks good on a t-shirt works well on a sweatshirt, like this emo cyclops on a bright blue hoodie. That’s why I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of this brand new skeleton-on-dragon action hoodie – the zippered cut and the two-tone graphic should make for a stylish look. Besides, it’s about time I have something white in my wardrobe besides a t-shirt.

  1. Why not check out 910 Industries? They’re pretty talented, and their designs are definitely more original than anything you’ve seen yet.

  2. Just discovered a complete list of all marked down products at Amazon, sorted by category
    and % off, ranging from 50% off to 90% off (thanks Sonja for the effort).

    Actually I never thought Amazon would have articles with 90% off, but only in the category
    Electronics there are more than 3000 of them – look for yourself, the list is on
    Bargain Hunter (which is a blog of a woman who specializes in finding good deals at
    Amazon, like Britain¬ís “Jeanie”).
