Everyone knows that professional conference goers like myself attend events not to listen to presentations, not to network but to collect schwag. Over the past couple of years I’ve done fairly well collecting tech t-shirts and I decided to create a weekly series critiquing tech companies t-shirt offerings in the expectation that a company with a great t-shirt is a prime candidate to have a great product also.

x2_b2c562 (2)If you’d like your t-shirt reviewed, flick me an email to arrange things. The judges decision is, of course, final and very little correspondence will be entered into (perhaps).

Just as I was about to run out of t-shirts to review, Wellington startup tweet4yourtee called me up and asked me to check out their new designs.

Tweet4yourtee is an interesting example of combining technology and physical goods – their website shows some nice integrations using the Twitter API and they produce a real world, physical good that has some inherent utility.

They were generous to give me a couple to try out, so over the next week or two I’ll be showing the options they have.

First up is this non-too-subtle shirt which nicely shows off the important information – the Twitter bird and your handle.

Hot

  • White T shirts are good
  • Saves people being embarrased asking who I am
  • 100% Cotton
  • My hometown heros!
  • Nice use of the Twitter API on their website

Not

  • Made in Bangladesh – need I say more?
