OldSchoolTees - t-shirts for the discerning geek?
Warning. These t-shirts are seriously cool.
If your t-shirt taste runs to wearing your favorite cartoon or gaming character, these retro-inspired shirts from online retailer OldSchoolTees in the USA will have you drooling. My husband is an Atari geek and he has already given me a list of the ones he wants.
Music fans will not be disappointed either as the selection of classic and modern band shirts is wide and varied. There is also a choice of sports team supporters' shirts, TV characters, brand names and more. Children's sizes are available, plus cropped, racerback and muscle styles across the sizes.
Most of the shirts are standard short sleeve tees, but there are also some tanks, hoodies, sweats and long sleeve options available. The company's owners describe themselves as t-shirt fans and the choice bears this out. From Beavis & Butthead to Led Zeppelin band shirts, and made by famous t-shirt houses such as Ripple Junction and Junk Food, there is just about something for everyone here.
If the ethical and environmental standpoint of a company is important to you, the firm uses recycled packaging and sources organic cotton shirts where possible. OldSchoolTees prides itself on being socially aware, trading responsibly and proactively engaging with customers on various social media platforms. If you’re a tweeter, like me, you’ll want to follow them on their Twitter account , while my husband the Atari geek has them lined up on Facebook . What’s more, sales in the environmental range benefit the Buy A Tee, Plant A Tree campaign, where a proportion of the sales price is donated to American Forest to enable them to plant a tree. There are often exclusive offers for social media followers too, coupon codes for money off and other deals.
At present OldSchoolTees has a number of items available on sale. Prices start from $5 for some lines, and if buyers quote coupon code FS215 when ordering before the end of April, they will benefit from free shipping on any size of order (Stateside orders only, I suspect.) More deals and free shipping offers are available to social media account followers.
The company supports the Keith Haring Foundation by stocking t-shirts with some of the artist’s designs on, and also shows examples from Jean-Michel Basquiat. Will Ferrell and the SNL alumni provide frequent inspiration, with t-shirt designs inspired by The Blues Brothers, Ghostbusters and National Lampoon among others.
It’s safe to say that the range of t-shirts offered by OldSchoolTees is wide and comprehensive. It’s also funky, funny, colorful, retro and generally cool, at least when you own as many t-shirts as I do. Perhaps it’s a good thing that I can’t afford to buy any at the moment, as I would have a hard time choosing.
