I finally got around to checking out Australian t-shirt brand La revolucion, and I should be kicked in the shins for taking so long.
I’m absolutely digging their designs, which all celebrate their home country of Australia.
I hatched the idea in 2009. It all started when I was looking for gifts for family and friends who are overseas and the only t-shirts I found were cheap, bad quality, bad designs and – worse – something I would never wear! So… I thought I should start designing T shirts with a uniquely Aussie flavour…..shortly after, i started printing my own t shirts! As you will notice, my designs are a result of vigorous use of typography and composition combined with simple graphics.
Hit the jump to see images of what they have available in their shop right now.
Random Objects has released a brand new design, entitled “What Goes Around.”
Some people call it Karma, while others say “You reap what you sow”. Either way, your actions inevitably lead to positive or negative consequences. So why not try and say and do positive things for yourself and others. This will benefit you in more ways than you could ever image. Or you could choose to do malicious and harmful things. Just remember “What goes around, comes around.”
The design is printed on a soft American Apparel 2001 tee. All orders come with a “random object” and stickers.
Random Objects has released a brand new typography design that’s suggesting that you open your eyes and mind.
“Vision Test” comes from a famous quote by Helen Keller, in which she said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight and no vision.”
How many of us have lost sight of the dreams we once had for ourselves; what happened to the goals we wanted to aspire towards? Well if you are working hard helping everyone else to fulfill their dreams and goals – maybe you should have “your vision” checked.
“Visition Test” is printed on American Apparel and is available now for $21 via Random Objects. They also have a poster available of the design for $12.
Pretty much any design that I come across that rags on the current immigration snafoo that’s going on in Arizona is going to get some love on this site.
With that said, I think this design from Rise Up is simple and yet effective. It gets right to the point of the matter.
Wear this shirt in defiance of the new bill in Arizona and in support of the Arizona citizens who will face harassment every time they step out their doors, the call is out for everyone to ask the question: “Do I look “illegal?”
“Do I Look Illegal?” is available for $24 via Karmaloop. Be sure to use the discount code INMYSHORTSLEEVE to take 20% off your purchase.
This hand-screen printed design is from Made By Sean. It reminded me a moment of Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch,” but I’d like to think this design is promoting more of a message that life is short, you’re going to die anyway, so live it up.”
And by the title of the company, I’m sure you can deduce that everything is personally made by Sean. Sean Suth to be specific.
“The Last Shall Be First.” Maybe conveying the idea that the last one to leave will eventually win the battle? If so, I dig it.
Also impressive is the interesting typography they went with. And I like the softening look that using the gray print on the white canvas offers, as if they’re trying to convey the message with subtlety.
“The Last Shall Be First” is available for $35 via 3Sixteen.
“I am trying to save for a house… I am trying to save for a house.”
This is what I’m repeating to myself after finding these brand new Ugmonk designs in my inbox this morning. Both tees are available now for $24 each. They’re printed on American Apparel.

First up is “Easier Said Than Done,” which Ugmonk describes as:
Talk is cheap. In a world of 24/7 news and commentary, everyone seems to have an opinion about how to solve the world’s problems (or at least wants to point them out). In the end, though, there are few people who are willing to go beyond the talk and get things done. Don’t just say it. Do it.
Next is “7 Days A Week,” described as:
Sometimes we live just wanting to “get through this week.” But life is short and each day is precious. Seven days. Count them. Enjoy them. Make the most of them.
Sometimes I think the whole “hater” thing is overplayed. I really don’t think there are many people out there who go out of there way to crap on your personal moves, but maybe my experiences are different than most.
There was one chic from my past who completely hated on some of my professional moves, so this shirt is for her!
