About Tee Reviewer

If you have looked around Tee Reviewer you probably know what I do here. I review t-shirts and t-shirt stores. I try to keep you up to date with sales, coupons and other special t-shirt related deals. I also talk about the t-shirt industry in general and sometimes comment on current topics…if they relate to t-shirts. You get it : t-shirts, t-shirts, t-shirts…

If you want to keep up to date with what’s going on in the t-shirt world you can follow Tee Reviewer by RSS or on Twitter though @RudeRetro.

If you are interested in having your t-shirts or t-shirt store reviewed or would like to advertise on this site check out the Advertise page.


Tee Reviewer was born on December 9th, 2007 but didn’t really start walking until the beginning of March 2008. It used to go by a different name, the very generic “The T-Shirt Review”. Sometime in early to mid-2011 it became Rude Retro’s T-Shirt Review which was less generic but quite a mouthful.

It was hosted on a sub-domain of ruderetro.com because originally the idea of the blog was to promote t-shirts from that CafePress (and later Zazzle) store. As I blogged though my interest in t-shirts increased and more focus was put on the blog until the connection to the original ruderetro.com was tenuous at best.

I have long thought that this blog deserved its own domain but it takes quite a bit of work to move a website and my attention was elsewhere. In 2011 though, circumstances conspired to go give me more time to work on my websites and on December 18th, 2011 The T-Shirt Review was transferred to TeeReviewer.com.
