Kempo24 T-Shirt Review
Two 100% black cotton t-shirts arrived in a plain white mailer a few weeks ago. The “Just like the moon” t-shirt is a two-color (maybe) print on a heavy cotton t-shirt by Gildan and the Digital at Heart design is on a light cotton t-shirt by BELLA+CANVAS. The print on Digital at Heart is light and soft in a white and blue ink. They were individually wrapped.
The Digital at Heart design has the eponymous phase in a stylish white typography on the left and a circuit board-inspired heart image on the left. You know, where the heart is. It’s a clever design and well executed even if it doesn’t call out to me. It is something that I might wear but probably not something that I would buy.
The Just like the moon t-shirt shows different phases of the moon depicted in an almost golden ink interspersed with the sentence: Just like the moon, we all go through phases. This one doesn’t work as well as the Digital at Heart tee and is not really something I would wear.
It’s just a matter of taste, of course, and while neither of these t-shirts does it for me I would like so say that the print is soft and impeccable.
Branding and Extras
The only Kempo24 branding was a sticker on the white mailer that the t-shirts arrived in. The t-shirts themselves had only the brand labels on the neck of the t-shirt brands BELLA+CANVAS and Gildan. The Gildan is a tear away label.
I could talk about the website in detail because I already have done a website review but you might as well just check out the Kempo24 Website Review. There have been a few changes since I last looked but they are restrained by both the shop platform and the chosen theme.
At less than US$20 per t-shirts, I think that it is fair to say that they are a good deal for original shirts that are mostly not available anywhere else.
While these two t-shirts are not to my taste there are plenty of t-shirts on Kempo24 that are just my style. There is a variety of themes to cater to most interests and all the t-shirts are available in a selection of colors. They are reasonably priced t-shirts with impeccable prints on quality material. Take a look for yourself.
