Nerd Buy: “Thread or Dead” T-Shirts

by Phil Wheat

I’ve always been into pop-culture T-shirts, especially horror movie related ones. In fact I have that many that I could wear a different one for every day of the week, for two weeks! I get most, if not all, of my horror tees from the US and in particular from Fright Rags – mainly because there’s not that many UK websites selling T-shirts as cool as those produced by Fright Rags. Well it looks like that has (finally) changed with the launch of Thread or Dead.

I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Thread or Dead until the site and Dan Charnley, one of the team of four artists/designers behind it, followed me on Twitter. And I’m glad he did. It’s about time the UK has a serious competitor to all those uber-cool US horror tee companies; and best of all, unlike many other horror T-shirt companies, not all of the designs on Thread or Dead are poster reproductions. Instead there’s a great mix of posters and original designs that offers something for everyone. And if you’re in the UK they ship for FREE!!

Check out a few of my favourite Thread or Dead tees below (I absolutely ADORE the Jason Vorhees hockey mask one) and see the FAQ for more details and, of course, browse their full T-shirt collection here.
