Bytelove is a t-shirt store from the guys who brought you The Pirate Bay, * a website that has been in the news a lot recently due to their file sharing activities. There has been talk of defiance, jail time and multi-million dollar deals, the stuff of Hollywood, so you would really expect their t-shirt store to be more out there. Even if the shirts were simple, the design of the website or the language used should be entertaining but it is not. I guess it may be hard to translate humor across five languages though. Yep, Bytelove is a multilingual site.
The site as well as the t-shirts they peddle are pretty low key. They are clearly not talented illustrators but they do know how to design a wearable t-shirt. The shirts found here are pretty generic and similar tees can be found all over the internet. I even sell a few similar to them myself. Not that I am putting them down. I mean gamers and geeks dig understated as much as the next guy, and I am sure the majority of them don’t want to wear t-shirts that are clearly over the top.
The guys at Bytlelove sent over this pretty cool and yes, understated, space invader t-shirt. I love this type of shirt. It has a simple design and one color. It may be a gamer t-shirt, it may be a retro t-shirt, it may be just something you picked up. It avoids labeling. A lot of t-shirt t-shirts at Bytelove have no real design, just some text but if that’s your thing head on over. There is a huge selection or gamer and geek t-shirts to choose from. There are a few funny illustrated tee too though and below you can check out my two favorites.
The shirts seem to cost around the €19 – €22 mark and at the moment they ship from Germany but they we will start shipping from within the US soon to be able to offer faster delivery, cheaper prizes and better service for their US-customers.
* Correction: “we are a partner of the pirate bay, meaning we are selling shirts and hoodies with their logo and pay them a part of the profit to support them, but we do not belong to them in any way.”
