In My Closet

If you know me, you know I love t-shirts. Compulsively and annoyingly so. Saying I'm a t-shirt collector would be stupid, but I do occasionally buy sweet tees with a "just to have it" mindset.

I dug through my closet and pulled out my favorites (an idea blatantly stolen from Preshrunk's "What's In Your Closet" feature). Click the thumbnails to see the fullsize (or view them on Flickr).

Keepin it real.
I bought this beauty during a drunk eBay binge. Klosterman tried to buy it off my back one night. I told him I'd trade it for his Cenex tee.
It's, like, personalized for me, dude.
Save Mary Kate
Yep, the one that brought on a lawsuit.
Wonkette Operative
Probably my fave, this is early Bjork.
Talk Nerdy To Me
This tee doubles as my pajamas.
Sheena, Suzi, Judy
No one gets this one. They're all Ramones girls. Bought it from a store in Portugal for vastly too much.
Local favorite.
I Read Your Email
Total ThinkGeek.
I Just Love Corporations
My only remaining Onion t-shirt. The rest burned in the fire of '97.
Not Helping
From a Creative Electric show.
This guy is friggin Nietzsche.
The last non-ironic band tee I bought.
Sonic Youth
Very, very old. Long out of print.
I Fuck Like A Girl
I really do.
Faux News
I'm technically a journalist, but I still wore this to work one day. To hell with objectivity.

Thanks for stopping by my closet. Here are some resources:

Cool Hunting
Nerdy Shirts
Busted Tees

Comments are fun - it's appropriate that your first comment is on a page about comments, that is, on a page that describes comments that you wear.

I clicked your google ads --- another 8 cents for you! (But ugh! One was for a 'conservative blog.' Yucky stuff there.

hi, i am setting up a T shirt museum to try and record T shirt art which otherwise just disappears. Could you upload one of your favourites? no worries if you can't, thanks.
