A design I've always wanted to create, and decided this was a great time to do it.

You know you want to dance in this one. Bring you switchblade, and watch out for zombies...if only the sidewalk would light up you would be all set.

This is so damn tacky....thus is perfect for an 80s themed sub! Good work! Pat yourself on the back & then do the Moonwalk.

Now that skinny jeans are back in, you can recreate the whole look! Seriously, great job man.

Baha! Oh this is a contender.

for those who want to see how accurate adamwhite's design is
a Beat It! red jacket

after seeing the jacket I think the shirt needs to be long sleeve,
but you don't have control over that :(

Cool 'Helo'. I had thought about putting the horizontal zippers at the bottom, and the two extra random zippers near the right side pocket, but wanted to distance this one a bit from actual coat.

Arzie....omg..i need that MJ beat it hoodie AND the Mr. T shirt they have at that site...thanks for the info! As for this tee, i think it is quite awesome indeed (i bought a knock-off of the jacket back in the day for a haloween costume), but doesn't this shirt need even MORE zippers to be accurate? just fill the frigging shirt with zippers....nice work tho 4$

adam, you always do some incredible stuff which often gets overlooked. I hope the same is not true about this one!

hummm... the subs in this contest are coming in way under scored and you've just been and to the list. Your score should have been higher on execution alone.

litlnemo

2.16? I don't get it; I thought this would be a high score. Maybe it's all the youngsters that don't get the reference.

If you got a lot of $ votes, though, maybe it'll still get printed.

My only concern is that why the two shoulder patches seems way too low?

ChrisDB

I know this is gonna win!! Great work! After i saw this i gave up all hope of designing sumtn for this contest. $5.25!

INVOKE THE HELP OF ALL PATRON SAINTS OF THREADLESS FOR THIS TO GET PRINTED!

If there isn't a patron saint... just make one up.

PLEASE, Threadless. My birthday's coming up and all I want is this shirt.

When I was working on this one I literally thought, "You can actually 'Kick It Old Skool' in this one. Not just represent the era, but dance and live it out".

This shirt is going to be printed. It was spotted on one of Threadless employees flikr accounts with him wearing this shirt to a meeting of some sort. Yeah for this design winning!

[+duracell-]

Seriously, with all the mass hysteria goings on, threadless should do a rush printing of this in time for Monday...or you know, asap. It's like free money.
