These remarkable tees come with a pretty bad ass story to match. “Barking Irons” comes from a 19th century slang term for pistols, that was created by gangs of youths that haunted New York’s infamous Bowery. The Bowery, where Barking Irons showroom is located, was the birthplace of a multitude of American art forms such as tap-dancing, freak shows, and vaudeville. Barking Irons’ prints resurrect the strange and splendorous ethos of the era and presents them in a perfect blend of vintage modern. $52

must… have… more… caffeine… As seen on The Big Bang Theory!

You live and code by this alkaloid, why not wear your badge of addiction for all to see? Kind of like a scarlet molecule. Except it’s green.

Caffeine molecule printed in lime green on a navy shirt.

Here’s some info…
In chemical line-angle structures (like the structure of caffeine shown on our t-shirt), carbon and hydrogen are not usually shown explicitly. Carbon is assumed to be at every junction of lines, and the proper number of hydrogen atoms needed to give each carbon a total of four bonds is assumed. This representation of the caffeine molecule is simplified based on these rules and is widely used and recognized throughout the scientific community.

Here’s another wacky kanji T-shirt featuring beautiful characters penned with a traditional writing brush (fude pen). A parody of famous shima-bito (Island-Person) designs from Okinawa, this shirt proudly proclaims you as a sake-bito, literally a “person of sake” or someone who loves to drink all forms of alcohol. (Sake, pronounced sah-KAY, can refer to normal rice wine as well as all other forms of alcohol.) Hiragana characters are written beside the kanji to illustrate the pronunciation and give the shirt a unique Japanese look and feel. A great wacky Japanese T-shirt for everyone who likes to party, recommended for retailers located near universities.

Apparently there’s a whole bunch of guys in the world who wouldn’t mind getting attention from Japanese females in the world. This best-selling Hoodie features clear, clean text and a message that is perhaps best translated as “Now accepting applications for Japanese girlfriends.” Features a nice red “rising sun of Japan” in the design. You never know what conversation this T-shirt could start, or where it might lead!
