T-Post T-shirts

Let me tell you guys about my new t-shirt. No matter how many dresses and skirts I wear, I'll always be a jeans and t-shirt girl at heart. I own a ridiculous amount of tees and love having cute designs and patterns on them.

I was really excited when I heard about T-Post. It came with the slogan: The World's First Wearable Magazine. Intriguing, I know.
What T-Post do is, every 6 weeks, they pick up a real live story and design a graphic for it, which goes on the front of the t-shirt. Then on the inside they write an article about it. So it is like a magazine: artwork on the outside and the print on the inside.
The story they choose is an usually an interesting one, but one that the mainstream media may not have picked up on.

These T's are not for sale anywhere and you need to subscribe to
T-Post to get these exclusive Tees. They only make enough for their subscribers, so they don't overprint and waste. I
think its a great concept. They use fashion and art to spread the word about new and interesting stories.

Its also a great way to get a conversation started. Someone comes up to you and says 'nice t-shirt' and you can tell them the interesting story behind it.


The one I got was about the death penalty. It has a noose on the front and the story is that people in the US want to abolish the death penalty, simply because it costs too much to execute someone. I'm not going to go in detail about the article, but you can read it, along with others on their website.

My tee was designed by David Foldvari, and after googling him, I've seen that his illustrations are amazing.













Also, I just wanted to briefly mention a product I heard about. One of the things I love about blogging is getting emails about lots of cool new products.
We were contacted by Conair about their new Infiniti Cord Keeper Styler. It as a retractable cord which is very useful for someone like me who has so many wores when I'm travelling. I have my curlers and straighteners, as well as all my chargers, and everything gets so tangled.
And the retractable cord isn't the only good thing about it. It has 1875 watts of power, meaning its very powerful and makes styling a lot quicker. It has Ionic technology that causes silky and shiny hair, while reducing static and frizz. Let me know if any of you have ever used this, and how you found it.

I like this! T-shirts with a cause. If were living in my home country right now, I'd definitely wear this because in there everybody gets to read what you wear. Hot, no need for a jacket and so a shirt on your back is enough.;)

I love the idea of the t-shirt/magazine - it's so clever and fun and pairs two of my favorite things together: magazines and fashion! :)

The T-Post shirts are very creative! It's such an interesting idea to take a piece of news and make a shirt about it. Very cool!

That is a great concept. Unlike society today where companies make vast amount clothes for the masses. It has become 'throw away fashion'. Love the T- shirt and concept. There should be more companies following their lead. Moymun. x

Sher said...

Wow, that's pretty cool! Brilliant too that they minimize waste by only printing for subscribers, how many times have I wandered round the shops at the end of January sales knowing that everything unsold will probably end up in a landfill somewhere?

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That's such a great concept for a wearable magazine and tee. Definitely more innovative than the majority of the print media, which seems to cover the same thing anyway. Thanks for sharing!
