It's a Shirt Thing

What are you favorite independent, online t-shirt designer/retailer websites to buy from?

I got a xmas bonus and looking to support underappreciated artists. All price ranges, including the obscenely-valued, if only for browser window-shopping and ludicrous head-shaking. The more independent and cooler the art, the better.

Well, before anyone else says it: Threadless. They have the community vote on different people's designs and print the best ones.

Digital Gravel has a lot of good stuff from smaller folks, though they don't make the shirts themselves.

They don't focus solely on shirts, but Shana Logic has some pretty great stuff. Likewise, I Heart Guts' designs are just stupid awesome.

I'm not sure they count as independent or underappreciated, but I love the artwork of Enclothe and Ropeadope. Not everything on Ropeadope is great, but they have some nice selections, such as the Worldwide Respects line (M|F).

Threadless is kind of... ubiquitous.

And don't forget to check Etsy. Doesn't get more independent than that.

Have to mention Drew and Natalie Dee at Toothpaste for Dinner, Natalie's website, and Married to the See. Hey, look, it's a pancake tshirt! I also really like Drew's panflute tshirt.

They sell many things other than T-shirts, but Black Phoenix Trading Post has some really cool shirts, especially if you're eau so goff.

If you're looking for something along the geeky/gamer line, I highly recommend JINX

In case any were missed on this question there's also a similar question I asked before.

This is an anti-recommendation, but since I can see that you're the type that values artists and their work, please don't spend any money on David and Goliath shirts. Other folks draw so Todd Goldman doesn't have to.

Interwoven Threads. 100% organic cotton, and for every shirt you buy, they donate the same shirt to a local homeless shelter.

T Shirt Hell (quite offensive) and Randomshirts are my favorites, with Randomshirts only being $10.
