OldSchoolTees - t-shirts for the discerning geek?

Warning. These t-shirts are seriously cool.

If your taste runs to wearing your favorite or character, these retro-inspired shirts from online retailer OldSchoolTees in the USA will have you drooling. My husband is an geek and he has already given me a list of the ones he wants.

fans will not be disappointed either as the selection of classic and modern band shirts is wide and varied. There is also a choice of team supporters' shirts, TV characters, names and more. Children's sizes are available, plus cropped, racerback and muscle styles across the sizes.

Most of the shirts are standard short sleeve tees, but there are also some tanks, hoodies, sweats and long sleeve options available. The company's owners describe themselves as t-shirt fans and the choice bears this out. From Beavis & Butthead to Led Zeppelin band shirts, and made by famous t-shirt houses such as Ripple Junction and Junk Food, there is just about something for everyone here.

If the ethical and standpoint of a company is important to you, the firm uses packaging and sources organic cotton shirts where possible. OldSchoolTees prides itself on being socially aware, trading responsibly and proactively engaging with customers on various social media platforms. If you’re a tweeter, like me, you’ll want to follow them on their Twitter account , while my husband the Atari geek has them lined up on Facebook . What’s more, sales in the environmental range benefit the Buy A Tee, Plant A Tree campaign, where a proportion of the sales price is donated to American Forest to enable them to plant a tree. There are often exclusive offers for social media followers too, coupon codes for money off and other deals.

At present OldSchoolTees has a number of items available on sale. Prices start from $5 for some lines, and if buyers quote coupon code FS215 when ordering before the end of April, they will benefit from free shipping on any size of order (Stateside orders only, I suspect.) More deals and free shipping offers are available to social media account followers.

The company supports the Keith Haring Foundation by stocking t-shirts with some of the artist’s designs on, and also shows examples from Jean-Michel Basquiat. Will Ferrell and the SNL alumni provide frequent inspiration, with t-shirt designs inspired by The Blues Brothers, Ghostbusters and National Lampoon among others.

It’s safe to say that the range of t-shirts offered by OldSchoolTees is wide and comprehensive. It’s also funky, funny, colorful, retro and generally cool, at least when you own as many t-shirts as I do. Perhaps it’s a good thing that I can’t afford to buy any at the moment, as I would have a hard time choosing.

I used to be a big t-shirt fan, but not anymore. Then again, if they have free international shipping...

Not sure if the the free shipping offer extends to international sales. We can but ask and hope, I guess. I hope so, because my husband has given me a list of Atari shirts he would like, and I have my eye on a couple of them too.

I accessed the site first on my phone, after having a lead sent over, and spent the entire journey waving it at my husband saying, 'well, look at this...and this...and this...!'

Me too, especially graphic and retro ones. Can't wear them for work but I can and do wear them the rest of the time. Being a shortie, I often find long sleeve tees too long in the arm, but short sleeves are perfect, especially in my line of work where hand hygiene is vital. Rolling up sleeves as well as removing rings before repeated hand hygiene is just a pain on the nth repetition daily. Not to mention that actually, rules on professional attire state that short sleeves are preferable, even for non-frontline staff like me.
