Interview: Brandon Lee of Wet Tee Shirt

It’s the festive season and what better Christmas present can you give your close friends really, than quirky tees with clever slogans perfect for them? This month we speak to busy young entrepreneur Brandon Lee of local brand Wet Tee Shirt, who has come up with a fun variety of colloquial designs that are not only spot-on relevant for Singaporeans, but also extremely current! Fancy an “Unbelievable” or “Stun Like Vegetable” t-shirt, anyone?


The young mastermind behind Wet Tee Shirt

Brandon had always liked designing his own t-shirts purely for fun and the idea of turning his hobby into a business only happened when a buddy commissioned him to create this very first design:



It reminds me of the classic “I’m with Stupid” t-shirt, but “Siao Lang” translates to “Crazy Bugger”, which would be instantly recognised and appreciated by all Singaporeans (at least those with a sense of humour). I especially liked how the company’s passionately embraces our Singapore culture and identity, as well as, our uber unique language of Singlish. T-shirt designs with the bold words “Confirm Guarantee Plus Chop” and “Don’t Say I Bojio” splashed across the front can only be Singaporean. Hokkien speaking locals would also chuckle at the naughtier designs with seemingly innocent visuals.

Last minute Christmas presents aside, I think these are excellent for Chinese New Year too! Especially if you have a family member who prides themselves as a mahjong aficionado, they’d love the “Shi San Yao” tees. Score yourself a “Lady Luck” t-shirt or gift a tourist friend a “HUAT!” one too, for cultural exchange, why not. LOL.

Cutest tee ever! Wore it out today and had lots of people commenting how super kawaii it is LOL… Japanese meets Singlish?
