First up, we’ve got the “Shades of Truth” shirt, which utilizes the sunglasses as a pattern, complete with the grotesque faces of the aliens shown through the lenses of some of them. One says “Consume,” another says “Submit,” and the other just shows that hideous alien face. Meanwhile, the front of the lenses have a red and blue color scheme, not unlike classic 3D glasses, and the look of old school 3D images is emulated in the design of the shirt too.
Perhaps the best shirt in the line-up is the one titled “All Out of Bubble Gum.” This one recreates the plaid shirt that Roddy Piper wears in “They Live,” but it gives it a sneaky, subtle touch. If you look closely at navy blue squares on the shirt’s design, you can see the faces of the aliens hidden within it.
What would have been particularly cool is if the face revealed itself with a special pair of glasses. But as it stands, using a plaid design that recalls Piper’s wardrobe in the movie and hiding the aliens within it is still brilliant.
Finally, we have these two similar shirts, a red one called “Hell to Pay” and a blue one titled “Consume This.”
These aren’t quite as stylish, and they’re a lot less subtle, but the artwork on them is pretty great. Maybe not a shirt you want to wear out to a family event, but you’re bound to run into a “They Live” fan who will recite one of Roddy Piper’s famous lines to you.
Each of these shirts is made out of a stretchy, sleek Kunuflex material and comes in sizes from XS up to 4XL. They can be yours for $70 each from the RSVLTS online shop.
