MacMost Now 279: Apple T-Shirts

Even though Apple doesn't sell T-shirts, there are still plenty of places on the Web where you can buy a shirt to proclaim that you are a fan of Apple, the Mac, iPod or iPhone.

Hi this is Gary with MacMost Now. On today's episode, let's do something a little different and take a look at Apple t-shirts. So You'd think with Apple's focus on brand that they'd have a whole bunch of t-shirts for sale. Well, the truth is, they don't have any. But you can still get t-shirts from other sources that show you're an apple fan.
Let's go and take a look at some of the ones that I think are pretty good. So I found a few good t-shirts over a missingbite.com. The first one I like is this: "I think, therefore I Mac" t-shirt. They also have one that's "I think, therefore iPod." Pretty clever. They also have a tie-dyed Apple t-shirt which is pretty neat and they have this really cool graphic iPod party t-shirt as well.
Over at insanelygreattees.com, they've got this really cool Apple timeline t-shirt, which shows these little icons featuring the major Mac models. You can take a closer look at what it looks like right here.
They have some other cool shirts, including some neat designs featuring the iPod, a shirt that says, "I'm a Mac", even one that says "Steve Jobs for President."
Over at cafepress.com, somebody uploaded this really cool spinner t-shirt. It basically tells people, "wait a minute."
A popular type of tech t-shirt is one that shows the insides of your favorite gadget. You can find one for the first Mac, the 128K,and you can also find one for the iPhone as well.
I've seen several variations of the 'Mac Daddy' t-shirt. You can find this one over at bustedtees.com
Over at bluecollarbistro.com, I found this really cool apple skull and crossbones t-shirt.
Over at fastmac.com, there's this really cool t-shirt that shows all of the different Mac models throughout history as text in the shape of an original Mac.
There's also a ton of other great shirts over there. Have a look.
Crazy dog t-shirts has this really retro-looking Mac t-Shirt. And if you like retro, you can go with the original Apple logo here, I found this one at Amazon.
Now, Apple does come out with t-shirts, but they're usually for special things, like, for instance, now if you join the Apple Developer Program, you can get a black t-shirt that has a little i Apple code on the front.
If you want to look at the history of t-shirts that Apple has produced, there's actually a book that you can buy.
And there' one more t-shirt I want to mention. It's this one. Last time I wore it, a few people asked where they could get it. So I went ahead and made it available. I got this printed up at Zazzle.com.
So I just created a store where you can buy it and there's a couple other shirts I'm gonna put there as well.
Now if you want to know where the links are for all of these shirts, just go to the post at MacMost.com for some quick access and also leave a comment there, perhaps with suggestions for other Apple t-shirts that I may have missed.

      I like the B&W combo shirt but I normal buy 3X or 4X.
      Not big enough for your larger fans. :-(

      Ditto Daniel!! I have been searching for techno/Mac tshirts in the larger sizes for my son. He is a 3x-4xTall, many sites don’t even offer them as a choice, heck I dont even mind paying a few bucks extra for them either.

      Hi, I just found an amazing vintage apple t shirt in an obscure opp shop. It is a light cream color with red/brown rim around neck and sleeves with a rainbow apple on it.
      Its in really good condition. super sort but no stains or flaws. I LOVE it but it doesn’t fit me. Wondering how much I should sell it for. Any info?
