Well designed t-shirts for the liberal gentleman?
February 25, 2010 11:30 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for stylish, well-designed Democrat / liberal / left-wing t-shirts.

I can find a lot of shoddy or ugly looking ones. I'm looking for something with a little more vintage / thrift-shop vibe. Shirts that are less strident and more tongue-in-cheek and/or humorous would be ideal.

I have always been fond of Republicans for Voldemort.

Unemployed Philosopher's Guild mainly do everything but T-shirts but this one might be up your street.

I kind of like this one for the anti-war angle.

Mostly for babies and kids, but they have a couple of adult shirts too, Tiny Revolutionary is one of my favorite companies to hit up for gift giving.

If you live near a Marc by Marc Jacobs store, they carry this gay rights/Obama shirt I really like. I just bought it for my sister, actually, it's very high quality and the cut is flatteringly unisex.

Northern Sun has very good quality items, in my experience.

Not overtly Democratic but this is good if you live in California.

Retro Campaigns isn't strictly Democratic, but, well, you can get shirts for all manner of Kennedys, McGovern, Humphrey, Gene McCarthy...

I don't have a recommendation for a vendor unless you make your own on Zazzle, but my favorite slogan is "Nobody ever says, 'Now that's a hot piece of elephant!'"

Syracuse Cultural Workers has a pretty wide selection.

I'm a fan of the vintage vibe at the Project for the Old American Century. "It's not Fascism - when WE do it." My personal favorite.

I wonder if there's a modern-day equivalent of DesignsOnTheWhiteHouse.org – I bought a T-shirt from them during the Kerry/Edwards campaign that said "democracy is not a faith-based initiative."

mikesch pretty much nailed the design and vibe i'm looking for, if not the exact content... I've marked a few as best and will keep checking in. Thanks!
