The National Museum of CNY Tees

No one does CNY like Temasek Clothings. We're like the longest ruling party of Chinese New Year tees, without the gerrymandering.

Here's a look at how far we've come... or as far as one can come in terms of terrible festive puns.

See the full CNY collection here.

2015: 

This was an excellent year for silly CNY t-shirts. Our CNY tee tradition started here, with gems like:

Seven Lontongs

Shop now at $29.90

Gong Simi

Shop now at $28.90 


Turn Down For Huat

Shop now at $28.90


I Love Pussy Willows

Shop now at $28.90

Huat Come

Shop now at $28.90

But these were all rejected designs and were never meant to be made. Surely no one would want to buy a T-shirt with a lontong on it? It doesn't even make sense! We only shared them online for fun before launching our 'real' tees:

The CNY FAQ series, with optional fabric marker.

There were 3 in the series — for teens, couples and married folks. Turns out, these were a real flop. Maybe no one wanted to risk their ang pow earnings. Singaporeans loved the 'rejects' more, and Seven Lontongs turned out to be one of our best sellers that year, and every year after that.

2016:

2016 was an auspicious year for a particular mega-church. What better way to preach prosperity than a shirt like this?

...Fatt Choy!

Kong Hee Fatt Choy! We also put some mandarin oranges up for sale.

2017:

Last year, we stayed away from cock puns (perhaps we... chickened out?) and went for something more light-hearted and full-bellied. We celebrated the best thing about CNY — the snacks!

Belly Happy 

Shop now at $29.90

We also made them in onesies, infant and kid's tees, so there's one for every belly!

Shop now at $27.90

 

2018: 

Chut Pattern 02: Pineapple Tart

This year, we're finally bringing back our CHUT PATTERN series with an all-over print inspired by the best thing about the season — pineapple tarts, and lots of 'em!

Shop now at $34.90 $29.90

Coming up with a new CNY design only gets harder every year, but that's where it gets fun. Have a great Chinese New Year!
