Threadless – For the Artistic Nerd

If you missed my first post – I’m on a mission to review as many online stores as I can in the quest to find the best value geeky tees around. The reviews are based on:

  1. Cost;
  2. Quality; and
  3. Design.

My first post focused on the clever slogans and old-school logos found at 6dollarshirts.com.  Click the link below if you missed it.

My second review is going to move away from funny prints and old-school logos and instead look at the artistic stylings available at Threadless.com.  Read on after the break if I’ve pipped your interest.

Nerdy is the New Black

It seems Nerdy is the new black and this means that tees with tech slogans, science grabs or old-school computer logos are all the rage.  I’ve been wearing these for years but just recently my group of mates has introduced me to the plethora of online stores that are starting to stock cheap tees with geek prints.

To help in the hunt for the best value tees available I plan to try as many of these stores as I can find. I’m going to base my reviews on the following loose criteria:

  1. Cost;
  2. Quality; and
  3. Designs available.

First cab of the rank is 6dollarshirts.com. I ended up buying ten shirts off this site (three of them can be seen below) so lets see how they stacked up!

A Pebble in the Hand

four_half-stars_0

Pros:

  • Battery Life;
  • Easy Setup and Integration with Phone;
  • Phone App is Simple to Use;
  • Notifications are Easy to Read;
  • Can View Screen in Any Light; and
  • Water-resistant.

Cons:

  • Charging Cable and Connection; and
  • Looks Hideous.

Usually when I go about acquiring a new gadget I research it extensively. I look at all similar products available and benchmark them based on features, build quality, price and how best they fit my needs. The one time I didn’t do this was when I purchased my first Pebble………and it was one of the best purchases that I have ever made.

Needless to say I am pretty excited about the announcement of the Pebble Time’s release – particularly the Steel version. So in anticipation of the new Pebble’s release I thought I would outline what I like and don’t like about the current Pebble.
