smart ass comment with a smart underlying meaning.

Isn't this what almost every t-shirt company tries to achieve... go to urban outfitters or Target or where ever you shop for your tees (besides threadless) and this is the formula they all use.

it's a good statement, well done,,, I actually like the retro image with the "retro image" type!!! I think that maybe the "ironic slogan" is too in your face for the threadless crowd, even me, but the car alone with the "retro image" type would definitely fly. I'd buy it with that change.

An ironic image that knows it's ironic. How ironic. Sure it's smart ass, and that's why it works and why it'd look great printed. Besides, the illustration is flawless and works with the idea very well. Well done!


can you guys tell me what "smart ass comment" means - I'm french so I don't underdtand. But I like the "ironic" aspect ...

please help me to understand this world ;)

This shirt would get so many laughs around here. Probably too smart for its own good... 5$


to redstar,

smart ass = smart aleck
smart ass = know-it-all
smart ass = wisenheimer
smart ass = An impudent or obnoxiously self-assertive individual

Your profile page says you're German.
Have you changed citizenship ?


I think it's neat that from a distance
the muscle car on an orange shirt
tends to make viewers think of
Dukes of Hazzard while up
close the viewer will see the
formula used for many shirts
in a graphic format ( including
the design being distressed ).

Thus the message has more impact
with it being misinterpreted
from a distance and the viewer
finally understanding it when closer.


This actually already exists, but with CRAP SLOGAN underneath the car.

This is gold. A great return to the subs from Mr Leino. Nothing but class, and of course, a $ and a 5!

artbuyer... hood scoops open on the front... bone up on your american muscle cars my friend, take it from a transportation design major student... your way off. As for the design i like it except for the text at the bottom... as robsoul sed. Oh and not just because its text, but because its too long for the drawing, the lettering is spaced to far appart, bring each letter closer together and we might have a good design.


what's on the car is called a cowl

try : " hood " and " cowl " in a
google Images search


loos the "ironic slogan" and I'd give it a $5


(plus...I don't like the font...if the font was more like the trendy fonts...then the text could stay)


Love it! I'm sick and tired of companies creating ironic slogans on retro stylie tshirts so this is a great idea! Spiggin genius! $5


The shirt is just as much as an "ironic slogan" as it tries to satirize. Meh. I don't find it to be overly witty.


You're my hero.


The text is all wrong. Why is it wider than the design? This will make the hips on the wearer more evident, and well... Fat.

Oh no, I must have plagiarized... myself? Haha. Seriously though, LT picked up the design after Threadless passed on it. Thanks for noticing!
