Best Car T-Shirts And Where To Find Them
Looking to buy your next cool car t-shirt? Well, what do you know? We’ve been doing some researchby Tudor Rus, on
If you’re anything like us, the better part of your life revolves around cars and everything they stand for. And as you know, there are ways aplenty for petrolheads to show their love for cars yet somehow, nothing quite beats the good old t-shirt. Now, we can’t pin down exactly why cool car t-shirts never go out of style, but we suspect it has something to do with the amount of exposure it gets. Just think about it: your bedroom posters might be incredibly cool and all, but it’s your humble t-shirt that will tell many others about your passion, right? So, long story short, we’ve done some digging on the WWW and came up with the coolest websites that sell car t-shirts as well as a curated selection of cool car t-shirts you can get on Amazon. You’re welcome.
Best car t-shirt websites
We want nothing standing in the way between you and you next cool car t-shirt. Not even a Google search. That’s why we did the legwork for you and came up with a handful of websites that are in the car t-shirt business. The rad ones, that is.
Redbubble started in Melbourne, Australia, with a simple goal: to allow independent artists to sell their creations on a new, online platform. Essentially, artists open their digital shop and start filling it with their own designs. Then the user finds a design he or she likes and a product it likes or needs and it’s a downhill from here. Now, their car t-shirt section is huuuge and ranges from message car t-shirts to neat graphics that touch on JDM, motorsport, Porsches, car personalities, supercars and the whole nine yards really. You can check them all out here.
Their lineup might include just 14 car t-shirts, but we’re having a hard time deciding which one we would actually buy. And although the tees are mostly BMW- and Porsche-centric when it comes to design, you’ll also find the casual Alfa Romeo and Nurburgring reference. Oh, and every t-shirt is priced at $29. Take your pick here.
There’s a sweet European-car-scene vibe about Bensin’s t-shirts. Maybe because they feature a wide range of quirky models of old, such as Germany’s Trabant, Italy’s Fiat 127 or France’s Renault 4. There’s stuff for hardcore US carficionados as well, who might like the Ford Country Squire on their next new tee. Now get this: the name Bensin comes from the Indonesian word for gasoline and it’s used to express that the company wants to cater to an international audience. Prices start from £19 per t-shirt, or about $26. Check them out here.
Blipshift was founded by "two car guys and fashion ninja" out of a simple necessity that started with them wondering if and where is the internet hiding its t-shirts designed for automotive enthusiasts. Not only that, but they wanted to make Blipshift a marketplace where you could get your dream car t-shirt without having to look someplace else. Now, each shirt is priced at $15 and it’s on sale for only a few days - then it is taken off the online store and never printed again. This looks like a serious case of I-should-bookmark-this-website-and-check-it-on-a-daily-basis. So go ahead, take a look at what they have to offer.
Tuned in Tokyo
Founded in 2015, Tuned in Tokyo breathes and oozes JDM culture. It is the brainchild of Brian Porter and Frankie Quiroz and bears a straightforward mission: to continue developing products that embody the JDM lifestyle and culture. On that note, you should know that their range is split between the regular collection and a premium collection. T-shirts from the regular bunch are priced at $25 each but sometimes they’re discounted to $15, while the premium collection includes items that are priced at $30. Find out more here.
Design by Humans
Since its inception in 2007, Design by Humans developed into a popular online platform where artists could show (and monetize) their work. The design community now encompasses artist from over 110 countries and of course they’ve got a section dedicated to car t-shirts. Despite the obvious hippie theme with plenty of VW buses and whatnot, the tees on sale touch on various automotive themes: hot rods, supercars, off-roaders, motorsport, and muscle cars. All you need is time to have a look at the entire crop.
The only way we can describe the t-shirts sold by Shamrock Shirts is by calling them minimalistic perfection. We know we’ve left them at the bottom of our list but in our book, they’re by far the coolest of the bunch, mostly because they abide to a golden rule: keep it simple and classy. However, those of you looking for more color-filled alternatives should look elsewhere, because the guys over at Shamrock Shirts like their car t-shirts black, white, or gray. But yeah, good luck picking a favorite off their website.
