16 really cute graphic tees

24

I like to wear these for lounging about, or out and around under a blazer, which I think is one of the best looks going, and pretty classic by now. Typically I don’t go for faux-weathered band tees, but this one is just so good.

An inarguable sentiment, and I like how the white type pops against the grey.

I dig the slightly longer (but still short) sleeves here, and if you turned 50 this year, this tee would be a fun choice.

The typography here somehow reminds me of Schoolhouse Rock, which is reason enough to go for it.

A nice, slouchy leopard print tee: I like the orange-y hue.

Get it?

This looks like a treasured thrift store find.

Another thing I don’t usually like: tees that advertise brands. But Askk NY is a pretty cool, under-the-radar line of clothing, and this is a pretty cute shirt.

The color combination here is pretty unbeatable.

Here is a sentiment for our times.

A nice-graphic zebra print.

This has a cool retroish vibe.

I like tie dye best when it’s all executed in one color, like this.

A boxy tee with a nice neckline.

This resembles fancy wallpaper, and I mean that as a compliment.

I like how faded-out and 60s-ish this one looks.

    Hi Kim!! Super cute shirts, once again you are denting my bank account, but as a NorCal girl, I gotta wonder what’s up with the graphic on the Big Sur number. Big Sur runs twisty-twisty along the Pacific coast, with epic views and thickly forested, round-topped mountains. It has exactly ZERO jagged, snowcapped peaks. It’s not Everest. Or even Mt. Hood. Not your concern, really, just saying.

      Yep, friends and family know they need to let me drive or we’ll need to deal with carsick-Kimbersam. Windy and twisty, indeed!

    I really love multi-lingual packaging or grammatically incorrect english on t-shirts, backpacks. They make me laugh (ie. I can haz hamburger).

    But that “Je suis a Voter” just annoys me. It should at least be “Je Suis Un Voter. ” That’s proper Franglais.

    I need the voter tee and the “this is not a dream” tee. (excellent group of graphic tees!)

    I like the 1970 tee, but I was born in 1969. Unfortunately, when you wear something that has a 69 on it, people think you’re making a different sort of statement. 🙁

      My high school graduating class was the class of ’69. Our high school didn’t allow us to have anything with 69 printed on it (like sweatshirts or tee shirts) and I didn’t understand why. It took most of a slumber party for my girlfriends to try and explain it to me in the most simple terms my tiny little naive brain would understand while still maintaining some sort of mislead Southern decorum in their explanation. By the time my dimwitted imagination could put two and two together I was disgusted in a way only a high school girl can be and couldn’t fathom how anyone would want to do that.

    Here are some cool tees using the art on old seltzer bottle labels designed by @markpopham and sold on TeePublic. Each design description says, “All proceeds from sales to go to mutual aid and bail funds.” Here’s the link: https://www.teepublic.com/user/seltzershirts

    I’m embarrassed to admit, I don’t get the For Sake tee. Could someone please explain?

      It’s a fox. As in: for fox sake.

        If it makes you feel any better, Bobby, when I first read it with my morning coffee, I thought it was a fox who was “for sake (the drink)”. If my understanding is correct, Kitsune (Japanese fox shape shifters) are associated with Inari (spirit of rice, fertility, agriculture, and sake). Lately, I’ve been really wanting to treat myself to a book on yokai so I thought what a witty fox, saying he was here for the sake.

          Don’t feel bad, Bobby – I thought it looked like a wolf. Totally didn’t get it. D., thanks for the fun facts. … These animal print ones are very nifty indeed.

            I also thought it was a wolf! I knew what the destination was, but I thought, “Is there a wolf named f*ck?”
