This is the Asian Rounder and this is my first post. I’m starting a new thread called T-shirtspotting that will feature random t- shirts I’ve seen or bought around the world.
The above t-shirt was purchased in Bangkok, Thailand at the Monkey See shop which is located at Central World. I’ve done some searches online in both Thai and English however I have not been able to locate a website.
It’s unfortunate the don’t have an online presence because they offer up some pretty cool designs. I asked the clerk at the store, and they are a Thai owned t-shirt company that supposedly has around 5 stores in Thailand.
The featured shirt was one of many t-shirts I purchased. I loved the combination of Jesus, Elvis with a playing card. The splash paint in white was printed with a special raised fuzzy ink. Overall pretty cool t-shirt! Plus, I think I only paid about 500 baht or around $14 US dollars.
If you are ever in Bangkok, be sure to stop by a Monkey See shop and check out their cool designs!
Some would argue America is going through a new “bike boom,” with hipsters and the environmentally conscious folks leading the way. Indeed, bike usage and sales have increased steadily since 2008. A reflection of this trend is the rising popularity of bike t-shirts, and Headline Shirts leads the way, offering many bike themed t-shirts and parody designs. So, whether you have been cycling for years or just started riding, these cool bike tees from Headline Shirts might be just for you!
Anyone that has spent any considerable amount of time in Korea has surely spotted someone wearing a BANC t-shirt. The brand is so popular many Korean celebrities sport the t-shirts on TV and in photo shoots.
BANC is a Korean clothing brand that is supposedly made / designed in England. However, I personally think that is just a ploy to sell more t-shirts! There are plenty of designers in Korea that are capable of creating the designs.
BANC mostly sales t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts and caps. Each design is basically a different Lego character or robot. They offer countless designs, and many themes. There are BANC Batman, Superman, and Shrek t-shirts just to name a few.
There are BANC stores all throughout Korea and a t-shirt typically sells for 38,000 Won (about $30 bucks depending on the exchange rate). Unfortantely, besides e-bay I’m not sure whether or not BANC is available outside of Korea.
This one goes out to all the English teachers in Korea. Living in Korea is like being Punk’d bascially every day, you know something funny is bound to happen. Why not just enjoy the ride and rock out with one of these t-shirts? There is nothing more “Korean” than soju, the won, and kimchi.
Wear these shirts: Because they are funny.
Don’t Wear these shirts: Because Koreans will think you are dissing them.
These shirts tell the world: “I got bank”, in devalued Korean tender.
Check out this Hilarious video about living in Korea. “Kickin’ It In Geumchon” by the EV Boyz.
Naco has definitely come up with some cool and funny designs that are bound to grab attention. Naco bascially means “ghetto” in Mexican Spanish so if you’re caught wearing one of these shirts, people will probably think you are a little ghetto. As for the “I Love TJ” shirt, if you have ever been to Tiajuana you are bound to have some good memories of your escapades with your buddies and maybe a Mexican senorita!
Wear these shirts: Because you want others to have a good laugh.
Don’t Wear these shirts: Because you don’t want to offend someone! *But do you really care?
These shirts tell the world: These shirts speak for themselves!
The Jersey girl..a love of an unpretentious good time, and a certain sense of style. Jersey girls are about attitude. They’re about eating pizza, drinking beer, having great hair – and enjoying it all..She’s got a mouth on her. She says what she means. And she’s got a nice, cheerful laugh..Bottom line, all of them are sexy as hell.” -The Star Ledger
