{     Secret Handshake Designs     }    

Designer t-shirts: Everybody's doin' it, but who's doin' it well? These days, you've got to be a little discriminating with your hard-earned cash. Thankfully, Secret Handshake is there to save you from the glut of samey-lookin' designs that have flooded the market as of late. Drawing from a pool of diverse artists and designers, they crank out small batches of really beautiful tees, guaranteed to put something fresh on your chest. Take a browse to see what they've got cookin', and you'll soon notice what makes Secret Handshake something special. Like the hunk of steak hanging from a fish hook on Greg Shirilla's design. That piece of meat is so well screened to the fabric it looks like it's about to jump off your gut and right onto the grill. While you're peeking around, take a gander at Tim Kerr's tribute to Sun Ra, or Brett Superstar's giggle-inducing image of a big-nosed guy in a tie, both pieces rich with embellishment and detail. Abby Friedman and Jeremiah Ketner err on the side of the cute with their contributions; Friedman's piece bears a very cool cut-paper-on-doodle-background feel, while Ketner's design looks pulled straight from one of his paintings, replete with adorably sour catchphrase. There's also a new design from Nevada Hill, all tentacly with skulls and laser-beams, that's sure to tickle your tee-spot. Or you can just grab a classic Secret Handshake logo shirt, featuring the image you see attached to this review. It's nice to see this crew mixing it up with some truly original material and a nice wide range of styles, especially since they've just really been under way since March. They may be The New Kids On The Block, but with designs this solid, I guarantee they'll be Hangin' Tough for some time to come....



these shirts are really amazing, affordable, and are sent extremely fast. also, sent from the best dude straight into your cotton lovin' arms.

It should also be mentioned that these babies are printed on American Apparel tees, sweatshop free.

The screened images look absolutely devastating in person, which is hard to convey online. There's just a depth and incredible amount of detail to absorb that you don't realize until you've got one in your hands.
