410 B.C. Gets Props (0)

The T Addict was at the mall the other day wearing his new 410 B.C. Medusa

shirt while grabbing a new pair of kicks. Someone stopped me to say how much they like my tee. They said it reminded them of Crooks & Castles and I had to reply “well that’s funny, because Crooks & Castles reminds me of 410 BC”.

ZINNNNNGGGGG! Score one for the indie brand!

You just thought the T Addict could only get his fix from t-shirts. While that is 90% true, sometimes I have to check in on the hat game and see what’s happening over there. Thanks to the hat blog, Strictly Fitteds

, I came across a pretty clever side site/blog for a two-man design crew called Plan B .

Plan B calls this site the Clink Room

and it serves as an inside look at their design process. They specialize in designing logos, characters, and mascots for minor league and major league baseball teams. You have probably seen their work, whether you realize it or not. Now you can check out how it arrived at the end result.

The Evolution of A T-Shirt Design (0)

Thanks goes out to MashKulture

for bringing this one to our attention. The founder of the brand Fuct , Giorgio Di Salvo,  shows us how he arrived at a final t-shirt design that reaks of awesomeness. It obviously began as a concept in the designer’s head, was moved to paper and ultimately grew up to be a successful printed design. It was a collabo with Vanguard .

Lil’ Wayne Contest Winner at DBH (0)

Lil’ Wayne

, we have a winner….and it probably isn’t what you expected.  The design is impeccable and the print should be amazing.  The only problem is, this one might leave you scratching your head.  You just have to keep in mind the future of Lil’ Wayne and not his past to understand why this design is so relevant.  You see, Weazy is about to embark on his “rock n’ rap” career.  Knowing that makes this design hit the nail on the head.

Abduzeedo Picks Some Good Ones (0)

Abduzeedo

, a very prominent design blog, put together a  pretty good list of t-shirt designs they found. It was cool to look and realize that the T Addict hadn’t seen many of these before.  Some are great designs, some are clever and some conceptual. Either way, they don’t disappoint. It’s a solid list that’s worth a look.

Teextile Is The Real Deal (0)

Watch out folks, we got a new player in the game. They go by the name of Teextile

and some of their newest t-shirts are unreal. And by unreal, I mean some of the realest shirts I’ve seen in a while. I haven’t posted about these guys yet because they are fairly new and needed some time to prove themselves. It looks like the proof is in the pudding.

410 B.C. Will Make You Stare (0)

“Don’t look too closely at this shirt, or you might turn to stone.” By the looks of it, you might think that the T Addict has already turned to stone with those rocks for arms. Ha! I kid, I kid. But seriously though, the Medusa is one cool shirt sent to me by 410 B.C.

If you haven’t heard of the brand 410 B.C., then you might just be a caveman/woman yourself. These guys burst onto the scene in 2008 and haven’t stopped running since. Their look is fresh, mixed in with a little punk. They also do a great job of being connected with their fan base by running a tight little blog and having outposts on all the big social sites.

I was fortunate enough to open a package the other day and find The Medusa

. The shirt is slick! It comes in my favorite color tee, black, and has appropriately subdued printing colors with shades of gray.

The shirt fit great and the oversized printing is pretty awesome. No wonder these cats were considered one of the best young brands of the year in 2008

by The Art of Apparel.

You know I had to flex or you wouldn’t have known how well the shirt fit.  :-) .

410 B.C. has a lot of good things going for them. They’ll definitely stay on our radar because they are continually putting out new gear and hustlin’ all over the web.

In case you haven’t noticed, Liz at Pop Culture Tees

has been doing some big things lately.  Her most recent expansion is called Mr. Vector and it’s a high quality, royalty-free vector artwork packs.  A quick once over of the offerings and the T Addict is blown away by the low prices and crazy good artwork.  Congratulations Liz, we hope they sell like hotcakes!
