Because I have little to no client contact at work these days, I quickly adopted the style of dress of the other "creatives" on my floor: t-shirts and jeans. I had a pretty good t-shirt collection when I started, but lately I've been surfing quite a bit for fun, new tees.
Here are some of my favorite stores:
- Glarkware - I'm waiting for their "Good Grammar Costs Nothing" shirt to come back in stock in my size.
- Threadless - Limited edition prints by a variety of designers. I have the shirt that shows an octopus with a teddy bear in its tentacles and I get compliments every time I wear it. Plus, I love their tagline: "Nude no more."
- White Frog has some nice designs. I'm planning on getting one of the "Robot Anatomy" shirts.
- Elsewares also has some cool designs, but they're a little pricey.
- Then, of course, there's my own Average Jane boutique. I'll probably get another of my own shirts before I go to BlogHer in July, just to make myself more recognizable. For everyday wear, though, I think it's a little cheesy to wear my own blog's shirt. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong.
For the all-important long-sleeved layer for winter, my sister recommended the thin, long-sleeved tees that Target sells in the sleepwear department. They give you sleeves without adding bulk. I have about five different colors, so that takes care of me for a week at a time.
Do you know of a great online t-shirt source that I've overlooked? I'm especially interested in shirts by artists and designers.
Update: Another store I liked but had forgotten to bookmark was Johnny Cupcakes. Now I see, via BoingBoing, that Urban Outfitters has ripped off their distinctive cupcake motif for a shirt design. Not cool!
