It's Toile About You

Toile de Jouy, aka "toile" (Twahl), is a style of fabric consisting of fairly complex scenes drawn in black, red, or blue, usually on off-white backgrounds.



From a distance it looks like a cute vintage toile pattern.

But up close it is far more quaint than that!



To be belt printed a darkish blue on a cream shirt.

wow, seems like you are really promoting this well. It appears like wallpaper, over 1,000 scores already too. Anyways, it looks pretty fun!

this is really great. I don't know if I'd wear it myself (kind of stopped wearing tshirts lately) but I'd love to see what it looks like on a real tee!
and as for the "fake comments": all of you saying such do not know how popular emmy and her brother neil are, and it's entirely possible for their fans to turn out in droves for things like this.

It's really cool that Threadless fixed the presentation for you. It would look pretty as a print at a distance and be hilarious for someone examining it up close, like behind you on the bus or something.

Great design sense of humor.

Nat Huck

I third the hoodie idea! I will buy this!

Katie Zee

I want thissssss!!!!!
Maybe you could do a red print one as well? I love the blue and would love to see how red would look :D

Rhella

My two loves just met, B1nd1 and Threadless- and I couldn't be happier! :'D
This shirt better get printed, because I'm buying it right away!

Haha, wish I had half as many internet friends as you. Anyway, really funny idea and a charming style! :)

ryinghill

This is hilarious :)

MarcoBat16

This is good, but can you make one with robots and swords so manly men like myself can wear it?

Shih Tzu

It is fantastic! I hope to wear it!

Strubisatoaster

@MarcoBat16: That is SUCH a good idea. Emmy, are you reading all of these comments?

facetopalm

Toile featuring robots and swords? Sounds pretty attractive to me xD

Please do one with robots. Toile and robots, now that would be great, or maybe ninjas with swords beating up robots. So many funny toile possibilities. . .

Could there be any more fake comments on this thing?

sjem

I think you guys need to realise that Emmy here has probably introduced more people to threadless then any of us combined using legitimate techniques that threadless actually encourages.

So well done Emmy and congrats on the print.

And that matters to me from an artistic sense why? And I checked a random 5 or 6 of these people Emmy "introduced" to our wonderful threadless world, and very few had scored more than 2 or 3 submissions since this one and have not subbed any slogans or designs.

This could be a very cool print if it was put on the shirt in a more interesting way and not the same scene tiled over and over again, but please don't use that mode of thought to legitimize this piece.

And of course, congrats to anyone who gets a print on Threadless, it's a mighty accomplishment no matter what i think of the product!

sjem

Hey FnA - you're quite right, from an artistic sense it means nought. I think the score on this tee is greatly exaggerated too, I'm just making the point that Threadless has a vast amount of experience in deciding what does and does not print, and they have made the call on this one. I also reckon maybe 1 out every 50 people who Emmy has introduced end up participating further - but every bit helps.

Let me also add that I hold your input and experience on Threadless in the highest regard so it's great to chew the fat over this kinda thing with you.

sjem, you're probably right about the 1 in 50 people even though like i said that doesn't factor into what prints or doesn't from an observer's view (or course I want Threadless to do well, but still), and as for holding my opinion in the highest regard, even i don't do such a thing! hehe. Yeah man, spirited debates are why i love this place.
