I'm looking for t-shirts with silly things in Russian written on them ie cartoon characters, silly sayings, jokes (clean)...preferably not huge American t-shirts but the tighter European variety.
Does anyone know where I can find something like that?

old arbat and ismailovsky fleamarket, but you have to look and ask, because most of them are being sold with english language on.

yeah. I've looked there. They are really for tourists. I'm looking for something a Russian would wear. I know, they were things written in English etc but I'm hoping still...

i've been looking for the same thing for a while and the only options i have found are the crappy i work for the kgb style tourist t-shirts or the "hooligan" style marijuana, hard rocker shirts...everything else seems to be in (usually bad) english

yeah. that is what I'm hoping to avoid. Oh well. Maybe I'll just give up and buy vodka.

went through this a while ago. there was a company called something like artstop which made some nice things with lots of russian on. now it tends to be russian/ german...if you want, I'll look out a link for you tonight. the main shop on the arbat closed about three weeks ago but I think there's one at sokolniki and some other locations.

oh duh, just read your original message - with jokes or cartoon characters...try the kiosks at Sokol, along by ramstore. they used to have a range of shirts with marsunya, or whatever that little thing is called. large american style, but with russian writing.

my friend was going to make me one as you can buy iron on letters. It was going to say something like Barbie has homes, cars, clothes and pools. I really hate that Bi*ch

maybe i'll get lucky and they're cheap t shirts that will shrink to the appropriate size in one washing/drying set!

... have you tried the places that print t-shirts and coffeemugs? suppose on the site there are people who know where to find one, there is one in strogino, but suppose that is taiga (strogino slang for 'to far from the center') for you..detskiy mir does it, i just remember...
they and their clever computers for sure can print anything in ANY language...
