Whoa Baby.  Lots of stuff to go on about.  First of all, the love of TeeCycle is spreading.  Check out these great comments from all across the blogosphere:  (read ’em ALL here)

Talk about doing a fuck of a lot with a little, bravo guys –Tcritic.com

The reasons to buy used and vintage clothing are growing exponentially. There’s the cash-saving factor, the environmental factor, the ever-important hipster factor and there’s a charity factor.onmilwaukee.com’s picks featuring teecycle

If you believe in Karma this is as ethical as you can get. –buy-tees.net

(Teecycle’s) broader, philosophical goal is to remind people you can reuse these old things and value them, rather than going to the local Target and buying another thing off the rack. –Marquette Tribune

I must say it’s a pretty cool concept. –Troundup

This is a genius idea for tee afficionados, enabling us to get our hands on an amazing variety of pre-loved tees at bargain prices. –Thunderfrogs

Awesome idea, cool blog posts, funny photos. I’d say check it out! –Katrina’s Site

What a great idea! –T-Shirt Rater

T-shirts kick ass, green t-shirts kick even more ass. Teecycle.org is a cool new site that sells “gently used” one off t-shirts- a great price at about half the average cost of other cool tees online EarthFirst

 

Also, we’ve switched over to WordPress which has proved to make the site better looking AND better working.

A bazillion more t-shirts are on the way, so much so that we need some people willing to model.  As much as we love taking pictures of ourselves, we want to see your smiling face too!  We’ll be happy to plug any projects you’re working on.  Got a blog? Got a band?  Got a cause? Live in Chicago or Milwaukee?  I know you do.

By for now.

TeeCycle… in the news and in your drawers

May 2, 2008

Can I say how jazzed I am about this…. though I have very little to do with most of it so far?

T-Shits are selling like hotcakes! If hotcakes were nearly as cool as vintage cotton awesomness. These two are available no-more *sad face*:

Check out Tim, talkin’ tees in the (Marquette) Tribune here:

Cigelske, his wife Jess and friend Brian Battle (both Marquette alumni), post new pictures of T-shirts daily on the blog (with them as models). The idea for the business came to him last fall, he said.”I was picking through an issue of Rolling Stone and found a glut of ads in the back for T-shirt companies,” Cigelske said. “They all seemed to be kind of the same companies selling these $20 shirts with semi-clever slogans that people would get sick of in two weeks if they bought it.”

Also Gabbing about TeeCycle.Org, the end of the pop-collar era, and why The Super Mario Bros. trump The Blues Brothers on Kramp & Adler’s morning show on 102.1: (mp3 podcast here)

Plus a nice shout-out from T-Critic today who’s blogging ’bout “T-Shirts, T-Shirt Companies, and Things That Should Be T-Shirts”.
