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!

    I visited the store in Bangkok in July 2008 and also bought a few shirts. I love the designs and imagination and wish i would have bought more. The shirts i bought were more like 30$ Canadian. I also looked for the store on the web when i came home.
    If it is a UK copy….what it the brand name?

  3. I can’t find any information online about this company in Thailand or the UK… If it is supposedly an expensive UK brand you would assume they would have a website… Whether or not the Thai brand is a knock or not I’m really not sure.. Regardless the Monkey See t-shirts I bought in Bangkok are comfortable and the designs are pretty cool!

    I’ve bought some of these tshirts in BKK last month. They are awsome but pretty expensive (approx 30usd per tshirt). New collection is very nice. I wish I can purchase them online.

  10. Monkey See must have raised its prices! I’m actually heading to BKK in June, and I was planning on visiting Monkey See to pick-up a few t-shirts. Although I really don’t want to spend 1000 Baht on a t-shirt, when there are some really cool t-shirts to be had for around 100 Baht elsewhere in Thailand.

  11. I am a regular reader of your blog posts. I liked the recent one and other posts on your blog so much that I have subscribed to the blog’s RSS feed in Thunderbird. Even thinking of stealing some ideas and put them to work. Keep all the good work going by posting more informative posts. Thank you. Time well spent on this post.

    Central World Plaza in Bangkok (formerly known as the World Trade Center Bangkok) used to have a Monkey See store. However, in 2010 the World Trade Center was burned downed (or bombed), and subsequently remodeled. Since then I have not been able to find a Monkey See store. However, I did find and buy some Monkey See t-shirts at the Mega Bangna shopping mall last summer (2012). If I remember correctly there was a Monkey See store in Pattaya as well, but I have never been there myself. So, Monkey See t-shirts are available, but you probably have to make a trip to Thailand to buy one!

    I actually bought 2 for myself when I was in Thailand, in Pattaya in some big mall. They had a great choice of really cool things to wear and the price was about 1200-1300 Baht. One of them was on sale for about 750 Baht. I would love to have their store closer to me haha 🙂
