Sintient Apparel Featuring Einstein’s Dank (0)

As a t-shirt blogger, I get a lot of e-mails from brand new clothing lines, existing lines, and clothing lines that have been in the game for a long time. For those that I’ve never heard of and have never seen, I make the time to look at every one of them. I’m always looking for something different and/or high quality. It doesn’t even have to fit in within my own personal style because I have learned to appreciate creativity and top-notch printing.

This is the case with Sintient Apparel

. I checked the brand out and instantly knew it wasn’t my style but at the same time knew I had to get my hands on one. Einstein’s Dank was definitely a print that I had to see in person. I initially had the feeling it was going to be a design that looked great on the computer but couldn’t possibly be executed 100% onto the t-shirt. I couldn’t have been any more wrong.

The concept of Albert Einstein smoking an atomic mushroom cloud will probably stir up a lot of debate with opponents/proponents of nuclear bombs. No need for the T Addict to get deep, I’ll leave that up to the scholars. What I will do is tell you that this oversized print with full bleed and a ton of halftones was masterfully done.

Taking the easy way out would have been printing this image in black on a white t-shirt. This is almost the exact opposite. The design is done in shades of khaki/tan and it doesn’t show any of the typical muddy spots associated with a photograph print. They did this on a black t-shirt, the most difficult of them. And yet, somehow they maintained all the detail without losing any of the quality.

Sintient offers one other shirt at post time featuring Buddha puffing away with birds as the smoke. Again, not my cup of tea, but I can assure you the print is as good as it gets. Each shirt goes for $30 and is a good buy if you want to stir up some controversy and start some conversations.

Finally it wouldn’t be a t-shirt spotlight without showing you my weak noodle of an arm.
