T-Post Subscription Box Review – T-Shirt #144
T-Post is a super cool Swedish t-shirt subscription box that tells stories through words and wearable art. The result is a new twist on the concept of a magazine. With each new shirt comes a new story. According to their site:
A T-post story can be an in depth interview with someone we think is interesting (like Ricky Powell or Eric HAZE), or a stories about how we never really get our hands dirty anymore, or how the only way to become truly cool is by hanging out in nature, where nobody can see you. In all our stories we tend to openly reflect on what’s happening around us in a time when everything is moving so fast that we hardly ever take the time to.
The t-shirt designs are all unique collaborations with artists, designers, and brands. Their site mentions past collaborations with “Alife and Staple, as well as organizations like TEDx and Fatta Man.”
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

T-Post “Can Effect Your Buying Habits” Cool Tee Design #144
This month’s tee looks kind of simple at first glance, but it’s got some details that seriously up the uniqueness factor.
The front features the minimalist black T-Post logo. The tee itself is heathered gray and has the weight of a standard unisex tee you might wear to the gym. The sides of the shirt are trimmed in black and white ribbon knit with the brand’s tagline, “It’s a Story”.
The back of the shirt has the real statement piece, though. This “Can effect your buying habits” graphic looks like a warning label you’d find on a controlled substance, doesn’t it? Haha!
It’s also a little painful to me, as a copy person—technically, [*pushes glasses up her nose*] it should be “affect”, not “effect”. “Affect” is the verb. (“That really affected the result.”) “Effect” is the noun. (“I’m still feeling the effects!”) Okay, rant over 🙂
On the inside of the shirt, there’s a short article about the “cyber-stalking” that’s becoming the norm in the advertising world.
Here’s what the tee looks like on.
Not sure how I feel about this placement, haha!
The Verdict: I love the concept of this brand. It’s something to wear AND a conversation-starting article that turns the tee into a collector’s piece! As you can tell from this design, the brand’s aesthetic is a little more modern, trend-conscious, hip-hop/skate inspired. Hint hint: the quality and uniqueness of T-Post shirts make this subscription a great idea for holiday gifting!
