Review and Giveaway! - Headline Shirts

      Headline Shirts is a t-shirt (primarily) company located in San Francisco, CA, which was founded in 2005. They specialize in an array of "intelligently funny tees", though they also sell belt buckles, hoodies, wallets, and bags. Headline Shirts is environmentally friendly, offering Vintageblend (super soft poly/cotton) material shirts with Eco-conscious inks. Their shirts are hand-sewn right in CA, and are shipped in compostible bags! At first, the company focused on political humor, but has since grown to encompass almost any humorous subject you can think of. They have so many unique shirts that it is hard to give you an overview without you just seeing them -- there are funny quotes, funny images, social humor, shirts related to movies, etc. Some of my favorites are the "Emergency Broadcast", "ASCII Zebra", "Boombox", "I'd Rather be Sleeping", "Beethoven Oldschool Beats", "Darwin Scarface", "Gandhi Says Relax", and "You're Not my Type". How awesome do just the TITLES of these shirts sound? The images are even better. Headline Shirts is now selling their products in stores across the country, and worldwide via their website. If you like a humorous shirt that will get you noticed in a crowd, jump on board and check out Headline Shirts.


I love that Headline Shirts has affordable prices -- the average price of a shirt is just $24. Hoodies range anywhere from $19-$34, belt buckles have an average price of $24, wallets have an average price of $20, and bags have an average price of $45. Every week, they offer great sales on their shirts; right now there are many $14 shirts that you can choose from, as well as shirts that are in the permanent closeout sale. They also have a wide range of sizes, so that everyone can join in on the fun. They have small-XXXL for men, and small-XL for the women's style. Shipping is a mere $5 for Canada or the US, no matter the size of your order, and only $10 for international customers.

I received the "King Tut Kanye Glasses" t-shirt to review. Here is the hilarious description that accompanies the shirt on the website, as well as the product description:
"The King Tut exhibit now on display has some nice surprises for anyone interested in the notorious Egyptian pharaoh. All of the signature elements of Tut's tomb are there, including his mask and royal diadem. But so are lesser-known items, such as the pharaoh's prized Kanye glasses, as well as his rarely seen red "Thriller" jacket and his Wreckx-n-Effect "Hard or Smooth" cassette.

The long-lost glasses were unearthed by a team of explorers in 2005. Rumors of a "Curse of the Pharaohs" began when nearly all the explorers reported having Mr. West's "Gold Digger" track permanently stuck in their head following the expedition, leading in one case to suicide. It turns out the song was simply on the radio constantly."

I found the t-shirt in the mail only two days after ordering it...thumbs up on the shipping time! I love my shirt. Unlike a lot of companies, Headline Shirts provides a women's style that is actually very form fitting. It shapes right to your body, but offers the perfect amount of stretch to still be flattering. The material is soft and comfortable and the design is vivid and high-quality. Another aspect of the shirt that I like is the length. For a women's style shirt, I prefer something that is a bit longer, as I find it elongates my short stature. This shirt did it for me. I am not worried about throwing my new shirt in the washer, as I feel like the design would not be quick to fade. This is a great statement/conservation piece to add to my wardrobe, as any of Headline Shirts' products would be. I chose this particular shirt because it is modern, stylistic, and funny. The design makes it versatile -- I can wear it around the house, on a night out, or even to the gym. It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, but the comfortable fabric would allow you to leave it on all day. My one note is that compared to some companies (Like Express, H&M, etc), the women's style shirts from Headline Shirts might run a little bit smaller than usual, so make sure to check the sizing chart when placing an order. I am very pleased with my selection, as well as the promptness/customer service of this company!
