T-shirts. T-shirts, everywhere. The web abounds with sites that pay homage to the almighty t-shirt. T-shirt search engines like PleaseDressMe. Sites that sell t-shirts like BustedTees. Sites that blog about t-shirt news (Tcritic and FunkyDuds). Even sites that feature t-shirt designs (Threadless).

Here are three new t-shirt-related sites. Sites that combine casual Friday with advertising opportunities. Trendhunter recently covered, a database of people who want free t-shirts. The idea here is that Gitchers members get free t-shirts and businesses get targeted advertising.

Two other t-shirt-related businesses operate on a different model. and allow businesses to "buy" a particular day in which the host or hostess wears an advertiser-supplied t-shirt on their blog.

All three of these tee-rific businesses offer unique and affordable promotional opportunities Stats for Buying Ad Space on People Trending: Older & Chilly
