“Quote by the existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre… available at The Affair.com, a tee-shop with the most awesomest interface ever; be sure to check it out!”

“I got my ?Babylon Rocker’ one in the post the other day and to be quite frank it is the t-shirt equivalent of being kissed on the brain by God.”

22.10.2008 = Drop Knowledge
“Instead of stupid designs that favor style over substance, these shirts have style AND substance (not to mention that their website is super-slick).”

“Nice shirts. Great site.”

“The Affair have distilled the essence of the statement [Sartre's quote "Hell is Other People"] with Parisian-inspired typography and iconography that is understated and quite glorious to behold.”

“Tired of gaudy, meaningless graphics and all-over prints on your clothing? Check out the-affair, a relatively young brand that makes “limited edition t-shirts for the thinking man.” The label has just released two new thought-provoking tees for fall that don’t just look good, they practically stimulate the mind. Entitled “L’Enfer c’est les Autres” and “Jazz Traitor”, both shirts feature gorgeous, full color graphics and have the stories behind their intricate designs printed within. Available now.”

“Best T shirt website I think I’ve ever seen. Super simple and clean animation. Love it.”

28.09.2008 = Orwellian Pigs
“Possibly topping the PPP in the dystopian scale is the Miniluv shirt and hoodie from The Affair. As the website proudly proclaims, it specializes in “Shirts for the Thinking Man,” and this thinker is proudly going to be an owner of such a shirt.”

28.09.2008 = The Awesomer
“Rastafarian iconography, decrepit Soviet spacecraft and William Gibson all mix deliciously on this Babylon Rocker t-shirt by the-affair. Limited to 200, this is a brand that’s going places.”

27.09.2008 = Not for Paper
“Here is a unique way to browse and buy some great t-shirt designs. The site presentation is sophisticated and refreshingly simple. It’s also worth noting that it loads surprisingly fast for the number of highly-detailed images used.”

24.08.2008 = Tag Culture
“the designers at The-Affair may have just distilled the perfect blend of iconic representation and social commentary. The face of Jesus stares out from a white t-shirtt, but upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that the messianic likeness is formed from clusters of Islamic crescents. Subversive? Yes, in the best possible way. Potentially inflammatory or controversial? Well, isn’t that the point?”

“I usually hate flash website, but the aforementioned Gibson referance had piqued my interest. On this site in question were hosted some of the most awesome t-shirt designes I have ever seen. These things are majestic, and anyone who has read the books to which they are a referance too should really appriciate them.”

18.04.2008 = the boston herald
“Inspired by the nightmarish futures imagined by Orwell, William Gibson and others, these limited-edition tees are sly enough to pass under the radar of chic hipsters but witty enough to be picked up by fellow cyberpunks.”

“The Affair is looking to be a great destination for literary-minded t-shirt fans… In Corto’s Crash, a line from Gibson’s Neuromancer comes to life, with huge text obscured by complex vectors. It’s almost a vintaged look, which is deeply appealing in a shirt about the future.”

“I’ve been wanting to a ?best of’ category for site designs, I just haven’t gotten around to it. When I do, The Affair is hitting the top of the list… But every once in a while a shop get’s it all right. The Affair’s site is nothing short of beautiful. Simple, clean, usable and intuitive… And you know what, they design shirts as good as they do web sites.”

27.09.2007 = omgtees
“The attention to detail is supreme - it’s like they’re selling sunseekers, not tshirts… The flash site has a real feeling that the designer has been set free, become his own client, and is using those great ideas no one else would pay for!”
