  3. Don Some Superhero Threads with Threadless’ Spider-Man Collection

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    Recently Threadless challenged artists to illustrate "the battle between Spider-Man and his archnemesis." Some of the winners, which appear on t-shirts in the company's new Spider-Man collection, take "battle" literally (I particularly like Yannick Bouchard's Spider-Man vs Green Goblin), some are more metaphorical (Blair Sayer and Ross Zietz's Changes), and others take a more whimsical approach (Robert Thomas' Rock! Paper! Scissors! Web!?). A few of my favorite pieces are behind the jump; you can check out all of them over at Threadless.

  4. Threadless Goes to Infinity and Beyond With Their New Toy Story Shirts

    where does he get those wonderful toys

    I have a love-hate relationship with Threadless. On the one hand, I love their designs. On the other, I can't make myself pay $25 for a t-shirt. It's just not happening. But I can still admire the awesome tees that make up their new Toy Story collection from afar. Kinda sucks that Jessie's not on any of 'em, though. Et tu, Threadless? Et tu?

  12. Vulcan Hoodie Stealths Like A Klingon Bird of Prey

    As geeks who occasionally have to function in non-geeky parts of the world, we are always on the look out for items that function in both places. Things that let us preserve our secret identity while at the same time telegraphing what's really going on to anyone in the know. This hoodie is right in that niche.
