The Springleap T-shirt Winners!

A week has come and gone and with it brings the close of our latest t-shirt giveaway. To stand a chance of winning a t-shirt from the Springleap shop, we asked you to visit the Springleap shop and choose the t-shirt you’d like to win. As we mentioned before, nothing makes us happier than the sight of you having your cake and eating it too.

We had a great amount of interest in this competition. Our sponsors Springleap and its owner Eran Eyal helped to spread it on Twitter, as did a couple of our friends and their friends, so a big thanks to all for getting the word out. And of course, thanks to all of the entrants for sending in their choices. The Randomizer has done its thing and we’re hoping to make Monday a little happier for five lucky people. Could you be one of the winners? Find out after the jump.

Win Funky-Fresh T-shirts From Springleap!

NOTE: This competition has ended.

It’s been an absolute age since we last had a competition here on the blog. Summer is just around the corner and we know the importance of looking crispy. T-shirts are a warm-weather basic that can take your image from zero to hero. In the last 150 years t-shirts have undergone an impressive metamorphosis from utilitarian mens undergarments to one of the most popular, fashionable items of clothing in your wardrobe.

From 19th-century stevedores working on the docks to rugged cowboys out on the range to armed forces in the heat of battle, t-shirts saw their first use as practical undergarments but it wasn’t until the early 50s when actors like Marlon Brando and James Dean turned them into something that every man and woman wanted to be seen in. We here at Onelargeprawn want to fulfill your earthly desires to look cool and are giving you the chance to win t-shirts from funky-fresh online apparel retailer, Springleap.

Springleap is not just an online purveyor of superb t-shirts, it also provides a platform where passionate designers can showcase their work – in the form of t-shirt designs. It’s a win-win situation for everyone including you because…

…we’ve got FIVE Springleap t-shirts to give away, one for each of the five lucky entrants that we’ll pick at the end of the competition. In a “have your cake and eat it” kind of fashion, we’d like you to choose your favourite t-shirt available in the Springleap shop and if you’re one of the winners you’ll get the t-shirt you wanted. Sounds pretty simple no? It is, and if you’re keen to be on winning ways, find the full competition details after the jump.

Bleed Your Colours

Dear readers, you may have noticed some Nike advertising on the blog in the past few days. If you’ve clicked on a few of those adverts then please accept our thanks for we shall be able to afford beer, breath mints, and dog food (we have two flying puppies).

In these ads, you’ll recognize pretty-boy footballer Cristiano Ronaldo who will soon be visiting our South African shores for the football extravaganza, the 2010 FIFA World Cup. You may have also noticed the popped collar of that ubiquitous polo shirt he’s wearing. It’s no ordinary polo, for it is the Nike Grand Slam Polo that is made from flat-knit fabric and features a subtle vented collar construction. I have no idea what that means, but it certainly does look cool, and sometimes that’s all you need in life.

To launch the Grand Slam Polo, Nike enlisted the services of British photographer Rankin and athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Joe Cole, and Patrice Evra. Have a look at the Bleed Your Colours ad below.

It’s all in the Muti!

TGIF. And none too sooner, I’m running on fumes. Whilst the FIFA World Cup madness is going to be happening down in Long Street, I’ll be heading in the opposite direction, up Kloof Street to AFRIKA!

A collaboration between Muti Clothing and designer studio Am I Collective, AFRIKA! is a range of tees inspired the dark continent which we call home. The peeps over at Groundglass created a catchy viral spot for the launch. Check it out below.

The event starts at 6:30pm tonight at The Garage, 8 Kloof Street. See you there.

Happy Monday 7: The Death Head T-shirt Winners!

A thousand apologies for the lateness, I had to see a man about a dog. The man was late, but the dog did look enticing ;-)

Back on topic though, our most awesome Death Head t-shirt competition has come to an end, and we’re hoping to make Monday a little happier for two lucky people. To stand a chance of winning a t-shirt, we asked you to name the three bad guys that make up the Death Head design. A quick look on the a store blog would have revealed the answer to be General Grievous, Robocop, and Darth Vader (it’s his head with the helmet off).

The Randomizer has done its thing and spat out the winners. Could you be one of them? Find out after the jump.

Win T-Shirts from Mingo Lamberti!

Note: This competition has ended.

It’s been a week since our last giveaway and I’ve already got the DTs. Lucky for me and you, Mingo Lamberti has offered some of their super-cool merch for us to give away.

Named after his grandfather, a good man who believed in doing a good job at whatever he did, Brad Hodgskiss created t-shirt collective Mingo Lamberti to bring those same principles into the t-shirts and their designs. There have been six ranges thus far – each design gets printed 200 times and made available at independent clothing stores around Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban.

We’ve got not one, not two, but THREE Mingo Lamberti tees to give away this week, and if you’re picked as a winner you’ll be able to choose your tee from two specific ranges.

The gentleman can select any design from the Electric range.

And the ladies can take a pick from these three designs in the Nature range.

Happy Monday 3: The 2BOP Sweatshirt Winners!

Our third t-shirt giveaway has just ended and to stand a chance to winning one of the super-awesome 2BOP sweatshirts on offer, we asked you to answer the following question:

Back in the 80s and 90s you needed 2Bop to play arcade games. What is a 2Bop?

Win T-shirts from 2BOP!

NOTE: This competition has ended.

Time flies like an arrow (and fruit flies like a banana). We’re already into week 3 of our month-long t-shirt giveaway and this time you stand a chance of winning cool gaming-related sweaters from 2BOP!

2BOP draws inspiration primarily from games that were popular in South Africa at corner shops and arcades in the 80’s and early 90’s. Disadvantaged areas during apartheid South Africa had little to offer in terms of exposure to cutting edge international design or computer technology but the bootleg arcade games at the corner shop were a window into what was happening in the outside world.

And we’ve got two rad sweatshirts to give away to our readers. Check them out below:

Monochrome ASCII

Juicy
