The good folk over at ZBQ sent a few t-shirts out this way for us to check out. For those of you who don’t know ZBQ you can find out more about ZBQ in this interview with big boss man, Jason or of course you can check out the ZBQ site where there is a ton of information along with tees.
The first tee is this red number you see above. It is a large size so it looks big on me. I am not going for the hip hop look although Mrs. Retro said that’s what it looked like. I like this design even though I don’t know what it’s supposed to be. Icarus shot down? An angel? I’m really not into this shirt though. The big white ill defined print on the bright red t-shirt looks homemade and unprofessional. That wasn’t helped by the stray piece of ink on the bottom right of the tee. (You can’t see it here as it is too small.)
On the lower back including the hem you will find the ZBQ logo on the bottom of the tee and as you probably know, I am not a fan of logos on the t-shirts but in the case of ZBQ I think they actually add to the t-shirt and I think that extra print may even attract people to the shirt.
The next t-shirt is much more stylish and while I don’t really want to wear a picture of a girl in lingerie and a sexy pose on my t-shirt it works well. I couldn’t find the same t-shirt on the ZBQ site but as you can see this tee is black and white print on a black t-shirt. I think this tee looks like money. If it were in a high class boutique I think it would sell out pretty quickly but you would have to be a little extroverted to wear it.
Both t-shirts are printed on Alstyle. I think that they should use a softer ink.
These two t-shirts only represent a small part of what is going on at ZBQ at the moment and are definitely not my favorites. Check out my favorites below.
For people torn between their desire for fashion and the the desire to protect the environment ZBQ has something for you too. Check out the section called Prep School and you will see some pretty sweet and unique polo shirts for sale. It might be fair to say that no two shirts are the same as they are made with shirts found in thrift stores. Here is what they have to say:
