A couple months ago we started getting a cool t-shirt subscription from Tee Bangers, one of the many online who specializes in geeky wears. Now unlike other subscriptions boxes or services, you only get one item with this company: a single t-shirt in your size once a month. Since shirts usually make or break boxes from other companies, it was interesting to try out what they had in store. This month we received this pixel art TMNT shirt, featuring the cool but rude favorite Raphael. As you can see, his head is surrounded in a red outline with a pair of sais, while his name drips with ooze below.
I actually dig this shirt a lot. This is the kind of design I wish I had as a kid growing up when the original cartoon was hot and everyone couldn’t get enough of the Ninja Turtles. The fabric is lighter than normal, but not so thin as to it being skin-tight or instant to shrink. For a one-off shirt in the mail, this was a very excellent catch, and it’s the kind of design for this particular franchise that hit me in the nostalgic feelings. I honestly can’t wait to see what Tee Bangers sends me next month.
