Tank Top (and T-shirt) Tuesday: “Squid Swarm” by SquidFire
August 31, 2010
Today’s featured design appears to have two different names. The tank top is called “Squid Swarm,” but the identical design on a t-shirt is simply called “Squids.” Both are available only in Womens sizes in the colors shown. (Although they have a Mens shirt called “Squid Swarm,” it is actually a different design! But let’s save that for another post, shall we?)
“A reprint of a Squidfire classic on a green m￩lange racerback tank top. Tri-Blend (50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon) construction.”
“A new look on a Squidfire classic. This three color print on an American Apparel purple shirt features a school of octopi [sic] lounging by some seaweed.”
One final observation…the cephalopods depicted on these shirts seem a little confused on whether they are squids or octopuses. They are torpedo-shaped like a squid, but they seem to be missing fins. Furthermore, they have eight arms, but there is no sign of the pair of long feeding tentacles found on most squid. They could, I suppose, be a type of Octopus Squid (like Taningia danae), but if that were the case, they should have really HUGE fins. Of course, I would know better than to be a nit-picky bio geek when in the company of lovely ladies such as these! Sure I do.
