The 2020 Shiftee Awards

The less said about 2020 the better, there's still one lingering reason to approach the year with hindsight, and that's with The Shiftee Awards! Unlike TP, there was no shortage of drool-worthy art this year, both from loyal repeat artists and brand-new submitters. Here are those that apexed everything and snagged a golden Torso.


The T-Shirt Drawer of Fame

Staff Picks From the Year

Kenny GP

As a rider, it’s always a rare pleasure to show off that passion with more two-wheeled designs, and this is the tee that gets the most action from my stuffed shirt drawer. The simple colours and bold lines make for such an attractive piece, and judging by its popularity, others agree!

𑁋Daniel

Prost

I've always wanted to go to Oktoberfest and Bavaria has some storied automotive history being the home of BMW. The protip on the ground is that Stuttgart is where real Germans go to celebrate so why would you pass up the opportunity to go to Porsche and Mercedes HQ and kill two birds with one stein?

𑁋Kyle

King Sarther

As an art nerd i loved that this style reminded me of the artist Basquiat. It's very simple and graphic but still manages to be lively and full of character. Also a King Arthur reference for the name, absolutely *chef's kiss perfection!

-Monique

Periodic Maintenance

I had a periodic table of elements hanging up on my wall as a kid, no shame in my science nerd game!  I love all our designs but the super niche ones that are kind of like an inside joke are always at the top of my Shiftee listee!

-Kelsey

Sandstorm

Our most popular designs are those that elicit an emotional reaction from our fans. Sandstorm may have not been a top seller for us, but it hits that emotional connection for me, bringing me back to the early days of RC. While I’m not old enough to have owned this model myself, it was the forefather of many Tamiya designs, including a Monster Beetle I still have in my garage.

-Sebastian

Summer Body II

'cause I like to think of myself as someone who thinks IN the box and slightly underpowered.

-Joe

Extended Artist Bio: Jon Sheahan

Jon Sheahan


As a senior designer for an extreme sports brand, it's no surprise that you can on occasion find Jon on the mountain bike trails. More often than not though, this petrolhead from across the pond is in the shed, adding to his calluses and cussing vocab while wrenching on one of his many hunks of old German metal. His heavily-modified Mk2 Golf of 14+ years gets most of the attention, but a new Cocker Spaniel comes in at a close second. You can see this garage and range of interests reflected in designs like "Sweet 16V", "Westward Bound", and "GTRadical".

Like a mechanic in a cop procedural, Jon rolled his crawler out to answer a few questions:

Shiftmas Comes Early

In the list of things to be thankful for in the decade that has been the year-that-shall-not-be-named, our 4-wheeled fuggetaboutit vehicles might be at the top. The 10 Blips of Shiftmas Sale gives thanks with 10 unique daily lineups of apparel and accessories just waiting to find a home under a tree or in a tee drawer from Friday November 27th thru Tuesday December 8.

Even better, we're giving discounts on these new daily accessories with purchase of qualifying tee products, as detailed below.

Fall Into a Pile o' Swag

You've already changed those fluids and tires in response to that chill in the air, now it's time to swap those shirts. If your work-from-home uniform is becoming more barnfind than beach cruiser, give your wardrobe a tune-up with The Automn Sale. With 20 resto-modded tee designs (and some new faves) available from Monday October 26th thru Thursday the 29th.


That's not the only tee-peeping you'll be doing this fall either, as the sale also brings on a tide of new designs from our fantastic partners, including Micah Muzio, The Drive, The Human Driving Association, and Chris Jacobs Shirts. Help support your favorite personalities and creators with a limited-time tee!

Tik tok 'till The Automn Sale

Do you hear that ticking? No, it's not your cats cooling off after a spirited drive through leaf-covered lanes, or your sport chrono stopwatch timing your run through the drive thru for your pumpkin spice. It's the countdown until The Automn Sale! Starting Monday, October 26, we're resurrecting 20 tees along with some new favourites and fresh partner designs. Can you eye-spy any before the full reveal?

Automn Sale Blurry Grid

On top of all this torso thankfulness, The Automn Sale winds are also blowing in:

  • New Partner Store tees
  • New baby onesies
  • New Apple Watch & racing-inspired straps
  • New wall art
  • And lots more!

Put those drag-strip-honed reaction times to the test, and you may snag an AsteRISK Bumper Sticker FREE along with your 1/4 mile printout. Limited quantities available for early orders that add it to their cart before checkout.

The Automn Sale starts Monday October 26 and runs through Thursday, October 29.
