We have our winners for The Chivery’s Design Contest

Once again the competition was stiff and in the end there could only be three winners. Thanks to all the Chivers who sent in designs, the talent level far surpassed our wildest expectations. If you didn’t win don’t fret, we will be holding a $1,000 grand prize t-shirt design contest every month.

  • Evan

    there should be a t-shirt saying "first"


    • dub

      That's a hilarious idea!

    • Pr0n

      Well played sir. The best "First" I've seen in a while.

    • Happy Cannuk


    • AnyoneForCoffee


      There will now be a rush of these in the next contest.

    • Rodion

      Nicely played AND I think that shirt will sell. I'd give you 2 thumbs up if I could my good sir.

    • Hand of Fate

      Just so long as to the top right of it you have a thumbs up and a thumbs down with an extremely high negative number in front of them.

  • tim fritz

    Congrats Justin!

    • Creeper Patrol

      About what? Making $1,000 for producing a boring, uninteresting image which could be whipped up by a monkey with down syndrome in MS Paint? Actually yeah, good for him. $1,000 for 5 minutes work is nice.

      • tony

        seriously….well said

  • *dash*

    Not worth the price you guys charge for shirts

    • dub

      Yeah… plus shipping it's like $50 for a single shirt. I have 1 Chive shirt, but I can't justify buying more at these prices. I know I'm cheap, but then again I'm poor too.

      • The_Dood

        The shirts are $20-24, and shipping is usually $6-8. How does that add up to $50?

        • dub

          my math is poor too. I'm a poor guy.

          I just remember that critical moment when I clicked the "Buy" button and my brain probably rounded it up. Or I may have gotten fast shipping because I'm terrible at being poor.

          • simplizitey

            Like a boss

            • Mation

              There's also a coupon code that saves you a dollar or two if you know where to find it.

              • googledaddy

                Google knows where to find it

                • HumpDan

                  $30-$35 is still a lot for a shirt, not to mention buying a black KCCO. You'd think with all the advertisements theChive sends our way they'd be able to lower the price a little bit for those loyal enough to wear their shirts.

      • Kaiwatha

        it's almost 100$ when you don't live in the US… damn UPS

        • None

          Still worth it

      • MylesofStyles

        Cheap and poor? The ladies must be beating down your door.

        • dub

          Well I'm also an asshole, so yeah. poontang up the ying yang.

          • MylesofStyles

            At least it's reassuring to see that your sense of humor has remained in tact. Cheers.

          • cooper

            I wanna be dub's new mentee. This guy ^. Heh.

            • MylesofStyles

              I need to go back to school This guy ^. Heh.

    • Yann

      I'm sure NOT buying any of the three tees… AND I think I'll NOT be the only one thinking like that. WTF.

    • sandy astroglide

      not worth the price the Salvation Army charges for shirts.

  • 7thproject

    All three are awesome. Good job everyone!

    • KCCO

      you spelled garbage and terrible wrong

      • 7thproject

        Lol, they go with the theme they do here so they fit good in my opinion. I've never seen them so they are good to me.

        • Elliott

          Fit well. Well. Not good, well. And are they good to you? Do they treat you right? Or do they look good to you? Either way these shirts are about as cool as your grammar.

          • 7thproject

            I didn't know I had to type everything perfect for you to understand it. Although, you did understand what I meant.

  • Merle

    An airplane shitting underwear won this thing?

    • dub

      It's a Panty Drop…

      • Rozzisi

        Its fucking retarded

      • YouCan'tBeSerious

        You wouldn't wear that shirt out in public unless you were some douche, frat guy going "Hey, ladies I'm looking for donations for a panty drop that will benefit our soldiers overseas. Are you feeling patriotic?"

        Absolutely disgusting that these were judged to be some of the best designs sent in. I makes me want to learn how to be a graphic designer by next month so I could submit a design. Shit I think I'll just go into Paint and design it pixel by pixel.

        • fff

          got my vote

        • MylesofStyles

          Fuck yeah. That shit is pathetic. *grabs pen and starts copying down pick up line*

    • BoMyster

      It's a panty dropper. Something your not use too..

      • DarkStar

        Grammar…something you're not used to.

  • http://pepito115.wordpress.com pepito115

    Stoked on the Eastwood design making second; wish the Vader Fear and Loathing one made the cut.

    • Will.I.Am

      Fear and loathing deserved it more than an airplane shitting underwear or more merica stuff

    • Felcus

      I voted for Vader Fear. I would buy that shit for sure. Will not buy any of these.

    • sfb101

      Agreed on all counts.

  • crustybubblechunks

    It doesn't really seem necessary to have a t-shirt design contest every month

    • Felcus


    • Shane

      Can't please everyone I guess

      • Bobby Klobber

        Cant please anyone by the comments so far.
        Lame contest, anyone who pays for this crap is a wagon jumping dumb ass.
        Start showing some premium FLBP on the tees and then we can vote for something of substance.

  • doctor

    all these shirts suck.

    • Craig

      To everyone bitching about the shirts, come up with a better design yourself or stop complaining. Or don't you like $1000?

      • Bobby Klobber

        No one would want to be grouped with this bunch of lame ass.
        Like I said before……..start putting the best of FLBP on tees………cant understand why no one though of this earlier

  • adam

    How is the 3rd place shirt an original design when it clearly is already a shirt. Wow that must have been hard to google image search that design.

    • TFTC

      Photoshop is hard… dumbfuck

    • Nate

      Because people can make their own shirts with their own designs on their own websites and take their own pictures and submit them to theChive.

  • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

    Still no Paula on a shirt?

    – the one you love to hate

    • dub


      and yes, you go down with every flush.

    • matt

      they dont put trolls on shirts…

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        That's quite all right; trolls don't put on shirts either.

        – the one you love to hate

        • Herp

          Paula I don't think it'd be socially acceptable to walk around in public with a giant piece of shit on the front of shirt, this is why there is no Paula shirt

    • back2worknow

      I thought I read somewhere in the past that there was to be a note on the shirts that they were Paula_ repellant but I am not sure. Although I am sure that a great many Chivers would buy an anti-Paula_ shirt should one come along. Would they work? Probably not but hey… it's worth a shot.

      Perhaps the proceeds could go to the Paula_ troll reduction surgery, or a sex change. o.0

      • Hulk hogan

        Remember that time we had sex Paula? Chix with dix – Oh brother! I couldn't shit right for a month!!!

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        …<img src="http://i.imgur.com/XnHiD.jpg"&gt;
        – the one you love to hate

        • back2worknow

          That's the one. I would pay $24 or possibly more for that shirt, but not for anything from the last few design contests!

  • animal

    Already have a Clint Eastwood shirt…..same design but WAY better…..that's a Rip off….urban outfitters already sold that one……Disqualified NOT ORIGINAL #2

  • MDB

    WOW. im usually really positive about these contests but – geezus H – anyone can steel an image off the
    interweb and throw it in illustrator and live trace then clean it up with some filters. And yes without a doubt
    ill submit something cool next time round!

    • Elliott


    • AllTaco

      So that's how they do it. "Man I gotta stop giving these things away." -Gob Bluth

  • brudy

    I dont get the theme of the first one

    • Watson

      And I'm guessing you never will.

    • dub



      • Bocanegra

        Panty Raid also acceptable.

    • Critical Observer

      You must be from the South – right?

  • Perin

    The KCCO underwear also sucks… make it sexier…

    • Hawksnester

      Yeah what the fuck is up with the granny panties? At least make em boy shorts so their ass will hang out a little

  • Nova

    Chive, you do realize that these are horrendous shirts right? You guys are better than that.

    • sandy astroglide

      no, they aren't.

  • LarsfromNorway

    wow people are hard to please

    • Elliott

      You should try your mom sometime…

  • Verbal_Kint

    If you guys are gonna be in the t-shirt business, you need to produce designs people will buy. Like i said yesterday, post ALL the submissions and have elimination brackets we get to vote on…

    • Creeper Patrol

      No, they don't. They only make 3 t-shirts at a time to sell and then claim "OMG we're so popular we sold out in 0.00012721 seconds!!!". They aren't in the T-shirt business because everything they know about supply and demand they learned online at the university of phoenix

    • Rubio

      nah, that takes a lot of time and this way they can have another shirt contest next month…
      so another ugly ass design can win…

    • LOLP

      Now this is a good idea!

  • http://sorryforpartyingimnotsorry.tumblr.com/ THEClesusChrist

    We need the Ha Ha Business T Shirt…..the meme with the dude in the suit on an 80s cell phone

  • Phil

    Congrats to the winners. Apparently people don't understand that this is a free contest. I apologize for the arrogant and pitiful commenters who don't appreciate a free website that does cool things like this. Congrats again! I like them!

    • RazorChiver

      The winner got $ 1000 bones

      • HawgNutz


    • jordan

      you have horrible taste

  • Nope

    I will be purchasing none of these terrible shirts.

  • Jerry13

    This is the last site that should be in the T-shirt business. They can't make enuff of their on shit.

    • twoedges

      unlike kcco or bfm, If they produce 10 of these design winning t-shirts they should have enough to keep in stock until Christmas …. of 2016

    • Thisguy

      *enough *own

  • adrian

    fucken shittttttt!!!!!!!!!

  • Greg

    Keep Calm and Crap On these t-shirts….you guys are becoming a bunch of money hungry bastards producing shit like this…

    • LOLP

      Well if they were good designs I'd buy them, but they are shit… Either not enough people are sending in designs, or they are just phoning it in on which designs they think are the best… Hopefully next month kicks ass!

  • cjchiver

    Next time im just gonna suggest a blank white shirt instead of this stuff…wtf

  • grandfred

    i vote for #2 🙂

    • Yuppp

      Too late. The votes are in and the contest is over.

      • animal


      • grandfred

        of my english is bad .. i mean i've voted for #2 🙂

        • LOLP

          Be careful young one… The internet is a very dangerous place. One wrong turn and you will end up neck deep in trolls.
