Love the shirt! Of the two, I prefer the grey. Can’t wait to pick one up.
looks dope. my vote’s on the dark grey.
Oops – I meant dark grey…d’oh.
Man, I need one of these shirts.
Light grey, then dark grey.
Then dark blue/off white.
(On light blue, I like the pure white)
Also, I’d vote for a tagless shirt.
I dig the “daringfireball” gray, m’self. Does this mean my original pink on blue is, like, 00b3r133t now?
Dark gray. Sweet.
Yes! I’ve been waiting for you to do another batch.
They all look great – but I do prefer the dark grey.
I like the dark gray, though I also dig the light brown look on your first photo. Light brown = not your usual deal, y’know?
dark grey, yup
Dark Grey by a landslide!
I like the dark gray of those choices, but in the first photo it almost looks brown to me. And a brown shirt with tan and cream lettering would look mighty fine, I think.
Don’t care which colour, I just want another shirt. But, do a cat test. Take a shirt, rub a cat on it. Whichever one attracts the least amount of cat hair, run with that.
I’d love to get one as it combines two great loves, morphology and topography, but everyone says it’s in bad taste… of the dilemmas.
I definitely prefer the look of the T-shirt at the bottom of the first photo.
Does this mean I’ll have to carry an incandescent light around with me whenever I wear it?
Very nice! I just showed your initial shirt-design to a friend of mine a couple of days ago; he is a Helvetica addict. One of the things that he remarked was that the colours were, well, a little bright…
It’s nice to see that you toned them down just ‘a little bit’.
From the new batch I prefer the grey version.
I think it bears mention that I was initially over-excited to see it available in what I thought was black.
In subsequent photos, it seems in fact to be Daring Fireball dark grey which, while not quite as exciting as Subtraction black, looks better than Rik Catlow Monster light grey.
Dark gray, I say. Both look terrific, though.
Another vote for dark grey – looks great
I like the the lighter grey.
The design is very nice but isn’t the use of the expletive a little crass?
Seems like an easy, and cliched, way to get some ‘edginess’. From a designer of your calibre I would have expected something more.
Hope this doesn’t come across as too critical and that you get my point…
Cool. I want one :o) The right one on the second image works for me.
That charcoal is HAWTTTT. I still prefer my baby blue/pink version 1, but I would get this new one in dark grey in an instant.
Hel yes, I’ll take the dark gray.
Ooh, the dark gray is killer, but really: I like both!
Bravo. I dig!
Reminds me of the pic I saw a couple years back where this kid got “Helvetica” tattooed onto his forearm, in about 200pt!
My vote is that the whole shirt would have been set in Helvetica. Then, taking it one step further, maybe doing the “fucking” part would be in “glow in the dark” ink. Ha!
I love yer work. You are an inspiration, man.
Plus, I love the word, “Fuck.” Liberate that shit.
Any chance of, er,plus sizes in the new batch? big dudes hate/love Helvetica too.
Those look great!
Dark Gray, white text.
Can’t wait to hear about how to get one 🙂
Dark gray with pure white looks best to me – the contrast is rather nice.
Dark Gray. Much nicer contrast.
Another vote for Dark Grey. Hope I’m around to get one before they sell out this time.
Great work as always Khoi.
Anyone will do. But probably I will go with one of each gray, light and dark.
When can we purchase?
Hoo boy, this just made my day! Grey or dark grey; I’ll probably pick up one of each, to be safe. 😉
when shopping these internationally, please don’t just write any amount in the “value” field like last time. This value is used to calculate the taxes, which made my v.1 tee a bit more expensive than planned. International shipping was quite steep, and because the declared value was $40 instead of the actual retail price, I had to pay more than 10 euro on top of it.
Other than that, love it, probably going to order more of those.
So long as they come in 2XL, sign me up for the dark grey (that’s actually AA’s asphalt, right?).
dark grey, white print for sure.
although i was rather fond of the original run’s color…
Nice, can’t wait to get my hands on one .. please..
I like the light gray, but would be happy purchasing either one.
I also bought the previous incarnation, and wear it as often as I can!
Love the grey. I’d buy either one. (I wish I could see the difference between the off-white and white in your photo, but I can’t.)
I like the dark gray one with the off white. Looks kinda vintage-y.
The dark blue with the white-white is nice too.
Out of the two I like the dark gray 🙂
i like the dark grey
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
