Cool Tees Thursday

  • Cool Tees Thursdays- Didier Gerardin


    Discovered on Threadless, this very cool t-shirt design nods to the old school musical era in a rather clever way. You have to take a second look… See that? Clever, right?

    It is called ‘Prototype‘. Check out on Threadless

  • Cool tees Thursday: Ichiban Badman

    Don’t need to say much. This week’s tee speaks for itself. I burst out laughing first time I saw it. It was worn by one of the characters in the Channel 4 show ‘Youngers‘. Absolutely love it and it will definitely go into my collection.

    The ‘Badman‘ tee is from Ichiban Clothing.

  • Cool Tees Thursday- Urban Outfitters


    Our cool t-shirt for today is from Urban Outfitters and it features yes, Darth Vader. Imagine turning up at a party only to find that it was DJ Vader on the decks. Ha ha. It would probably be the best fun you ever had on the dancefloor!

    I wonder if Star Wars fans will find this humorous. It would definitely put a smile on my face if someone walked past me wearing this t-shirt.

    Check out the t-shirt here: DJ Vader at Urban Outfitters

  • Cool Tees Thursday: Fashizblack

    Today’s cool tee is one of a wide range from Fashizblack which features the Made in …. phrase and insert an African city, to complete. Being Nigerian, I have gone with the Made In Lagos version. Also because a lot of our products are made in Lagos so it seemed so very apt.

    There are other versions like Abidjan, Accra, Bamako and many more. Each time, the city name is highlighted in a fabric local to that country. Very clever, very cool.

    Check them all out here:

  • Cool Tees Thursday: I Am Other

    Pharrell Williams can do no wrong in my eyes, haha. Check out his latest collaboration with Uniqlo which features a set of very cool tees that encourage you to be the unique person you were designed to be. The Same is Lame is a tagline that resonates with many I am sure. Check out the I Am Other manifesto below. I Am DEFINITELY Other!


    The Same is Lame


    i am OTHER
    By Pharrell Williams

    I serve and represent the OTHERS because I am one myself.

    OTHERS defy expectations and stereotypes. We are curious, ambitious, energetic and have every intention of squeezing the most out of life. Above all, we are individuals.

    OTHERS don’t fit into categories. We are not jocks. Or skaters. Or musicians. Or students. Or technologists. Or audiophiles. We want to be all of the above and then some.

    OTHERS are a diverse group of optimistic, bright minds connected by technology and a desire to make our mark, who together can advance culture and even humanity.

    OTHERS are not defined by demographics or geography. We have shared ideals, dreams and a vision for a new reality.

    OTHERS believe individuality is the new wealth. Experiences are the new assets to acquire. Whoever is the most individual wins.

    i am OTHER celebrates people who push society forward. The thinkers. The innovators. The outcasts. History has proven that it’s the rule breakers who have the power to change the world.

    Be OTHER.

  • Cool Tees Thursday: Clockwork Gears

    Videogame tshirt


    Yes, I am that geeky that a pixelated image puts a smile on my face because I remember Super Mario Bros, Gum Shoe and the like. This was before everything became HD and required a degree to understand. Of course there are the classics like Pacman and Tetris which you just can’t beat!

    Clockwork Gear’s cool tee pays homage to just that. The Videogame t-shirt is just perfect!

    Check out their Etsy Store:
