Aussies can appreciate a good Simpsons reference. It’s in our DNA.
Yet why is it so difficult to find a decent Simpsons t-shirt in Australia?
If you're in the market for a new t-shirt that pays tribute to your favourite show, there are plenty of options out there that are either overly cheesy or cringeworthy. We’ve all seen them before, and maybe you even own a few.
Unforgettable Luncheon tees are designed to the worn out and about without sticking out like a sore thumb.
Do you want characters’ faces plastered all over your shirt?
If so, you’ve got plenty of options. Google “Simpsons t-shirts” and go for your life. While these might be a good find for $2 at the op shop, or maybe even worn ironically - they’re not very subtle.
Here are our personal picks instead:
1. The Milpool Tee
To an unsuspecting passer-by, this could be mistaken for a miscellaneous streetwear slogan or design. To Simpsons fans, it’s a subtle nod to one of the show’s most iconic characters.
It’s a definite conversation starter, and a reason why it’s our best seller!
2. The Smarch Tee
Scared of wearing pink?
It’s actually pretty nuts how small one small, insignificant gag in a TV show can be recognised by so many. The Smarch tee is another of our most popular - partly for the colour but mostly for the simplicity. The perfect Simpsons t-shirt for the Australian summer - but probably not a great option for the Smarch weather.
3. The Single Plum Floating in Perfume Served in a Man’s Hat Tee
Celebrity cameo’s in The Simpsons are up there with some of the funniest (and also sometimes the worst). In the case of Yoko Ono’s gag, it’s definitely the former. This tee is a homage to her iconic drink order at Moe’s and is sure to draw a few knowing smiles.
4. The Dignity Tee
This one probably needs to introduction or explanation.
A popular t-shirt among Aussie trivia groups and casual fans alike. We’ve got more variations coming soon, so get your hands on the OG while you can.
5. The Two Spaghetti Meals tee
Another from Kirk Van Houten??
The man is very quotable, not our fault.
This tee is slightly more niche than the others, but also more aesthetically pleasing in our humble opinion. If you’re a fan of spaghetti, Kirk or Milhouse then this one’s for you.
