I've seen a few of these t-shirt search engines around the web lately -- the idea is to use keyword tags to browse t-shirt designs from multiple vendors. Of the several sites I've peeked at this week, PleaseDressMe yielded the most results I'd actually buy on geek-themed search strings like "robot," "hacker," or "Star Wars," excerpted above. At far left is a great 8-bittish "Saddest Soldier" tee recently launched by R. Stevens of Diesel Sweeties. This search engine did fail on a search for "goatse," but dude, cmon: you don't want to be walking around in a goatse t-shirt anyhow. Continuing in the theme of an earlier Boing Boing post today -- the "typography" tee tag on this site yields some fun results. A little background on these guys: one of the founders is Gary Vaynerchuk of the popular wine-themed videocast Wine Library TV; another is Gary's brother AJ; and another co-founder is the lead architect at Digg.
