Ever heard of Threadless T-Shirts? You should have by now. They create T-shirts. But not just any T-shirts. The designs change weekly and are created by awesome graphic designers. Until recently, they were strictly an online entity, and were quite a hit among the geekery. In September though, they decided to open up a retail space, and being from Chicago, decided that was the best city to start in. And guess what…they chose the exact corner I live on for their home base! The store is two parts. Downstairs is a traditional retail space, but upstairs is a gallery/classroom where artwork is displayed and graphic design, software, and photography classes are held.
The window display is various t-shirts, as you would expect, but instead of manikins, above each shirt is an inverted computer monitor with a snapshot of a face. I am not sure who the faces are, but I would guess they are designers and employees. The images change on a regular basis with the t-shirts, and at night, it looks pretty darn cool.
Well, the point of this post is that one of this week’s t-shirts absolutely rocks! This is the image on the shirt…I may very well have to buy this!
