Errol Ortiz: A Retrospective, Looking Forward - In The Gallery Now!

by Threadless / None /

Local Chicago painter Errol Ortiz has been painting since before Al Gore invented the internet, back when Threadless was just a star in the sky. His vibrant and colorful fascination with spaceships, guns and war machines started early on and continues into his current work. Showcasing an onslaught of paintings and drawings, borrowed from his home studio, we are attempting to host Errol's biggest and best one-man-show yet.

Running until March 31, it's not too late to come visit the Threadless gallery space to see this amazing showcase!

Steak Mtn: The Most Explosive Picture Of The Year - Coming To The Gallery!

by Threadless / None /

Steak Mtn: THE MOST EXPLOSIVE PICTURE OF THE YEAR! Coming to the Threadless Gallery April 4 - April 29! (Opening party on Friday, April 4th from 7pm-9pm)


Steak Mtn. (or Christopher Norris) is a vaguely successful graphic artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Since 1996, he has been illustrating/designing records, merchandise and ephemera for bands & record labels with clients including Against Me!, Atom and his Package, Panthers, Sire/Warner Bros., Vice/Atlantic & Earache Records. In the past few years he has been branching out from the music industry by bringing his graphic gallows humor to snowboards (Rome), editorial illustration (Res Magazine, The Drama) & clothing companies (Threadless, Shirtkiller, Art in the Age).

For THE MOST EXPLOSIVE PICTURE OF THE YEAR, Steak Mtn. is hanging three different phases of his work. The first section will be dedicated to showcasing the hundreds of found xeroxed pictures, doodles on tracing paper and full scale ink illustrations that have been utilized for some of the punk & noise records he has designed and illustrated over the past ten years. The second section will be images from a small series of color studies that rely on text and inky illustration to create disparate & seamy narratives. The third section will be the debut of his very recent pencil drawings, a series structured on transgressive statements, haunted house imagery & thick seeming minimalism.

Server Issues, Apologies, Coupons! ... And The Sale's Extended Until Wednesday!

by Threadless / None /

Hi Everyone!

Earlier this week, during your most crucial purchasing moments of our Spring Cleaning sale, we experienced some serious down-time. The frustration that many of you experienced while trying to make purchases is unacceptable and we promise to never ever let this happen again forever ever.

To allow you to make the most of the sale, our friends at Rackspace (the folks that host Threadless) are sponsoring five thousand $5 coupons on orders of $50 or more. The first five thousand people to use the coupon code 'spring08' during the Spring Cleaning sale will receive $5 off their order on top of the already discounted sale price. Time to go on a shopping spree!!!!

In addition to the $5 coupons and to make up for lost time, we are extending the Spring Cleaning sale until 11:59:59 CST on Wednesday, March 26th, 2008! The new shirts to be released on Monday will also be on sale!

If you are interested in all the geeky details of what went wrong, please join Harper Reed, our CTO, in a live discussion of your questions and concerns. To chat with Harper please visit Harper will be available to answer your questions from 12pm to 3pm CST on Monday, March 24th, 2008.

Again, we apologize for the unreliable shopping experience and hope that you enjoy the rest of the sale!

Sincerely, Jake Nickell Founder, CEO
