$ Tshirts

Does anyone know where I can find any Tshirts that are (how do I say it) Type sensitive. For Example If a typographer or Hand Letter did a line of Tshirts this is where I would go. I know Ken Barber has a line House 33 but can't find anywhere to buy it. I tried his site but looks unfinished. I have also seen a shirt that has KERN on it but no clue where it is either. Thanks

Adobe put out a series of type-related Tshirts a number of years ago: I've still got my "Type is to wear" one.

Threadless has a collection of Typetees, but they sell out very quickly. While you are there check out t-shirts lettered and designed by the absolutely brilliant Ray Fenwick.

Yeah, pretty impressive. He won one of the TDC Awards for Typographic Excellence for that design. You can see more on his site, www.odedezer.com.

There are a limited set remaining of Typophile tees, in several designs, if you're interested. Let me know your shirt size and I can see what we have left.

@Jared: I am still waiting for the free T that should have come with my subscription (paid in May 2005).

A number that haven't been mentioned: Emigre's two script logo t-shirts, House Industries' two "Rat Fink" tees, based on a Rat Fink foundry, I guess, and PsyOps' four dummy text tees and their simplifify one. I especially like the PsyOps ones.

Geez, I was saving that one. ;-)

Pick up lines were so much more imaginative in those days Linda :-)

I know Ken Barber has a line House 33

House Industries t-shirts are available here: http://www.houseind.com/index.php?page=merchandise

Although they don't seem to have many at the moment. House 33 is an offshoot shop, not sure if it's active at the moment/any more.

Gah!!! Tim thank you, I'm ashamed.

It was her character Slim in the movie "To Have and Have Not." She said it to Steve as acted by Humphrey Bogart.

"You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow. "

No problem and no shame.

I cannot imagine being able to whistle if Lauren Bacall had said that to me (or move from the spot) :)

Chris: Yeah, pick-up lines have really gone downhill in the last hundred years. Remeber that oldie-but-goodie from the sixties "hey, what's your sign" and the appropriate answer usually being "exit"?

Kristina: I can't think of anyone ever mistaking Ms. West for Snow White, somehow.... ;-)

We offer a complementary typographic T-shirt for every purchase over a certain amount:

Haven't though of selling them separately, though...

We had a thread going about people creating typographic t-shirts. Has someone mentioned that already?

So do you think if she gave a guy that look, he could turn away?

Not a chance :-)

>he could turn away?

Especially if she were 20, and he 45 and named Humphrey.

She's Shimon Peres's first cousin.

He isn't as cute :)

That look reminds me of the teen sluts now so prevalent
in the Victoria's Secret catalogs. But of course, des goûts
et des couleurs on ne discute pas.

Fake smiley.

I tried not to give an opinion, just point out what that reminds me of (and the similarity is striking). Oh well, another sacred cow trampled I guess. Oooops!

So anyway, T-shirts....

I sure hope House puts out some glitzy tees to commemorate the Luxury collection. Those I would wear to the mall.

The Luxury fonts aren't pricey, Chris, the House release has them priced normally. Careful what you whine about. Check their website.

The catalog for the Luxury collection is fantastic; they've outdone themselves in absurd copywriting, overproduction and gorgeous presentation. I think they could charge for the "privilege of ownership" to a catalog.

Carl,
Then what is the very expensive face that I am thinking of? It had a name that conotes luxury or exclusivity?

I just checked their site. The whole set is the typical $250. I edited out my above post so as not to lead others astray.
I still wonder what that $5000 typeface was that I was thinking of?

The Luxury set was originally released by its designers, Christian Schwartz and Dino Sanchez, without the text variants. That version was priced exhorbitantly; it was something of a prank. The House release is just an expansion and re-release, though House brought their inimitable marketing genius to the project. The original Luxury set is what you're thinking of.

Now I get it, it was all a ruse.

Here is explanatory text from Christian Scwartz's site explaining how his tongue-in-cheek got blown out of proportion:
"Once a conceptual art project that commented on the high price of a certain aesthetic, the Luxury Collection is now available to the general public through House Industries. It has been celebrated as a brilliant joke and maligned as self-indulgence. A friend pointed us to a thread on a type blog where someone with a limited sense of humor (or maybe someone trying to be even more tongue-in-cheek than we were) said, "...they are very full of themselves. I bet they go belly up pretty soon. In these economic times no client will pony-up that kind of money." Wink wink, nudge nudge?"
