Best David Bowie T-shirts

Visiting from the U.S.? Scroll to the bottom of this post for my top picks at Alternatively, you will find some fantastic designs and great deals available to buy on eBay.

I managed to find a nice range of original and unique designs at Redbubble and Tostadora who both ship to the UK and US. What I really like about both stores is that each design is available for men and women and can be printed on a range of clothing items, not just basic tees.

David Bowie T-shirts have always been a popular choice on my 80s website ( Inevitably, after his death in January 2016, there has been a steep rise in the popularity of not only David Bowie T-shirts, but also other merchandise as well.

However, unsurprisingly, a lot of printing companies have suddenly appeared on Amazon offering Bowie-related T-shirts to try and cash in. Therefore, I thought it would be useful to try and sort out the wheat from the chaff, and present you with the best suppliers to buy from - these are the most popular designs which are being printed by well-established companies. Alternatively, another store which has lots of great designs from top T-shirt suppliers is eBay.

David Bowie Aladdin Sane T-shirt
Aladdin Sane T-shirt
The Aladdin Sane album from 1973 is a real classic and this men's T-shirt featuring the album sleeve artwork (by Amplified) is the most popular (and possibly the coolest) choice through our website. 
David Bowie Blackstar T-shirt
Blackstar album T-shirt
There are numerous T-shirts available with artwork from Bowie's final studio album. This one by Illegal Art Boutique is receiving rave reviews and is made from Gildan heavy cotton with double stitching. At just £9.99 including delivery (subject to change) it's a great price, too. Believe it or not, there are actually T-shirts featuring a white star which is preposterous. This tee is available in maroon, grey or white for sizes small to XX-large.

If you're looking for a great deal then you will also find a page full of suppliers selling the Blackstar T-shirt on ebay and the prices are very competitive here.

David Bowie Smoking T-shirt
Official David Bowie Smoking T-shirt
This Bowie smoking design has always been very popular on my website, and the shirt I would choose is this official one which features a retro photo of Bowie with a cool, yellowish hue. Although it's a men's tee, many ladies appear to find this one a good fit (not too tight). Official merchandise is usually a safe bet, and the price is very reasonable at £11.93 to £15 including delivery depending on which of the three sizes you choose. You can also buy an official design produced by Ripleys Clothing which is available in five sizes and sold through Amazon UK.

David Bowie T-shirt by Ripley's Clothing
This iconic image of Bowie has gained in popularity recently and, once again, this is official merchandise produced by Ripley's clothing and sold at Amazon UK. Five sizes are available and customers have nothing but praise for the product quality and service. 

Mr. Bowie Ziggy Stardust Cartoon T-shirt

Now, here's a fun design which makes a refreshng change. It's completely unofficial, but it's ideal for quirky types and available in sizes up to XXXXXL in 15 colour choices. 

Ladies purple Mr. Bowie Ziggy cartoon T-shirt

The same, fun design is also available just for ladies, although with 10 colour choices, rather than 15. I picked out this purple colour which is a personal favourite. Sizes range from 8 to 20 and the tee itsef is 100% cotton.

David Bowie Life on Mars T-shirt
Life on Mars T-shirt
This is a fantastic design and works perfectly on a white tee. It features Bowie's heavily made-up face from the early 70s "Life On Mars" promotional video. Produced by Human Apparel, sizes up to 5 x XL are available with same day despatch from Amazon UK. It's also a Fair Trade product made from 100% cotton.

Best U.S. T-shirts

As promised at the top of this post, here are my top picks from in the U.S., The suppliers are different to the UK and, therefore, many of the designs available in the UK are not available in the U.S., sadly. These shirts are the best-rated by customers from established suppliers.
