I was wondering if there is a good place to buy Dragon Quest t-shirts mainly Japanese ones (and ones that don't use Gildan or Fruit of the Loom blanks), there's one I found last night featuring the DQII box art.

 

I got this one and I will see how it is:

Ah, Red Bubble. For all your copyright infringement needs!

 

Unfortunately, I don't know of any place off the top of my head where you can snag the official shirts. Keep in mind, if you do find a place, Japanese sizes run smaller than US/Europe. Buddy of mine is super skinny, but tall, got a suit in a large, and it was still tight on him.

 

Might I ask what your beef with Gildan is? I've got a few of their shirts, some official and some friends made, and they've always been a solid quality base. I kinda want to avoid American Apparel. Not that the quality is bad, but their founder and some of their company practices are...yikes!

Genesis, S.A. is a Haitian factory manufacturing T-shirts whose main customer is Gildan Activewear. It has been accused as the most serious offender in a campaign of retaliatory dismissals, targeted at the leaders of a new labor rights and union organizing effort in Port-au-Prince.[18]

 

Harshest working conditions in the global apparel industry[19][edit]

 

Genesis, S.A. is a Haitian factory manufacturing T-shirts and its only customer is Gildan Activewear.[20] Genesis, S.A. has been the most serious offender in a multi-factory campaign of retaliatory dismissals, targeted at the leaders of a new labor rights and union organizing effort in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. Haitian apparel workers receive the lowest wages in the hemisphere and face some of the harshest working conditions anywhere in the global apparel industry.[7]

 

WRC Report: Stealing from the Poor: Wage Theft in the Haitian Apparel Industry[edit]

 

A report titled "Stealing from the Poor: Wage Theft in the Haitian Apparel Industry," highlights the fact that the "average wages are even lower at the new Caracol Industrial Park despite the fact that the project was heavily subsidized by the United States government with earthquake recovery aid as a means of providing Haitian workers with a path out of poverty."[21]The best farmland was taken from farmers to give to the South Korean company, and wages have never been what they promised the workers.

 

I agree with you Dwaine about American Apparel though even though I had one t-shirt I bought recently that used a blank from there.

 

Here's a company I have used and a link to their t-shirts: https://www.usabayside.com/node/17

Gildan is one of the makers of my workplace apparel, so I wear it frequently. Not too bad.

 

Though I crossdress (( I have to wear tights for semi-medical reasons, so I don't go for gender barriers for clothing. I need thermals? DANSKIN FOR THE WIN MOTHER$#!&ERS. )) to a degree as for some clothing, I've always found Gildan to be a good brand.

Looks nice! Throw it up on Etsy or something.

Thank you!

Well, I do have an Etsy account, which used to be pretty active. I could add this in!

 

 

That is an awesome shirt. If you do indeed to sell these, I would most certainly take one!

 

Thanks!

I'll let you know after doing the proper research on how to mail it internationally. ;) 

 

Very cool!

 

Thanks!! :D

 

I'm thinking of sharing another design once I'm done with it!

Looks awesome! 

 

I really want to get some DQ apparel at some point. I'd also love to make some shirts with the DQ7 Japanese guide artwork on them. :)

That is a cool shirt.

 

I wouldn't mind a DQ t-shirt with that new artwork for Dragon Quest VII where Maribel, the hero, and Kiefer are standing around the pedestal as its shining.

Would have been cool if Gabo, Melvin, and Aira could have been in the artwork as well, but even without them it's a great piece.

How about this one? :P

 

FYI, this is one of the pieces from the Japanese guide I mentioned above. Found them on a Tumblr here:

There's a lot of cool official art I hadn't seen before!

The only t-shirt of Maribel that I would accept is one with her burning on a cross and the other party members throwing rocks at her, her skin peeling off to reveal her welt-covered green skin, her sharp goat eyes, and her tangled, wiry black hair.

Poor Maribel. :P

 

That shirt looks pretty nifty, Rock DJ! Do you screenprint?

 

These are the shirts available on the JP SE Store right now, I wanted one of them, but it was between those or the slime umbrella, and I took the umbrella. xD

I'll have to get back to you on that. I can't seem to be able to recover it, but I'll keep trying in the meantime. :(

Those are really cool!

I recognise the 2nd one from one of the DQ staff on the Nintendo announcement! It made me want to make the one I showed earlier!

 

 

I don't use screenprinting, though. I use heatpressing on vinyl mostly, and transfer paper once in a while.

 

Here's the one I was working on this morning.

... but I feel the pun may not be too obvious or funny...  :lrsmile:

Still, I kind of liked the idea in my head, so I may end up making it for myself.

If only I could convince my busty wife to wear that...

 

LMAO

Well.. my wife suggested I should aim this design at women.

 

I'm surprised I haven't seen many official t-shirts out there. Maybe I just haven't looked in the right places?

I'd only be surprised if t-shirts WERE out there! Squeenix barely gives us games, merchandise is not a priority.
