The very first Threadless Three!

new threadless tees

Clockwise from top left: Foxy, Them Birds, Communist Party I’ve avoided talking about it until now because it deserves a little bit of time spent on it and I haven’t been able to do that of late. But now I can. Nowhere else in the world (or on the web) is there such a large collection of awesome tees and designers.

If you’re not familiar with the site, here’s how it rolls: So you have an idea for a new t-shirt. You design it how you want using the tools that you can download from Threadless and then you submit it to their community. Talented and original designers will take a look at your design and tell you what they think – with all honesty and no bitching or bullsh*t. And if they all vote it in, not only will it appear on, it’ll also earn you $2000, $500 worth of tees for yourself, and you’ll become a member of their alumni. And far from being just a site of anonymous posters, they encourage meeting-up with each other, discussing ideas, and they even run some programs to help you develop as a designer.

Because of the way this works, it means that there are a lot of new Threadless t-shirts going up every week. And they always rock because they’re selected by them that know the trade. So how does a t-shirt reviewer, or more specifically this t-shirt reviewer deal with the pure volume of tees that appear on this site?

Welcome to this week’s (and the very first!) Threadless Three! Yep, here are my Three Favourite t-shirts of the week. I’m going to be doing this every week for the foreseeable future so enjoy!

The three brilliant t-shirt designs I’ve selected for this week are (going clockwise from top left):

Foxy designed by Lixin Wang – a beautiful and clever design that’s very simple but so striking.

Them Birds designed by Dan Elijah Fajardo and Peter Kramer – Perfect for Hitchcock fans with a sense of humour.

The Communist Party designed by Tom Burns – Hilarious and great concept – I wanna party with Marx!

All available in the colours shown, in various sizes (both men’s sizes and women’s sizes are available) and each one is $20. I’ll put three more up in next week’s Threadless Three!
