The new trend in tee sites seems to be the quick-n-dirty One Day Only site. TeeFury seems to be the pioneer here, but the basics are always the same: the site prints your shirt for a limited time, pays you based on what you sell, and then you get the rights back when the print run is done. It's the ultimate in impulse buying: often you literally have 24 hours before the shirt of your dreams is gone forever.
In case you need something else to get frantic over every midnight, I present to you RIPT Apparel. RIPT just started yesterday, so you really haven't missed much, but you definitely shouldn't miss this one: it's a rare print by Dave Perillo, known also as Montygog. The piece is A Bull by the Horns, and it is chock full of the fun, retro style the designer is known for. The bull is the obvious focus, being the "punch line," but there's plenty to see in the stripe of characters... each car almost has personality, and there are some fun sight-gags added in if you let yourself peruse. The throwback cartooning, however, is what you're really paying for with a Montygog piece, and he doesn't disappoint here... the colors, shapes, and humor all give a nostalgic feel, even for those of us who weren't born when the nostalgia was freshest. Personally, I can't help but remember the old Wacky Races cartoons just looking at it. How dastardly of the designer!
RIPT tees are only $10, and this one's only up until Midnight Central tomorrow, so if you're digging it, you hep cat, now is the time to grab it, and support a new site, a unique designer, and your wardrobe's right to some unique, individual tees.
