I’m straddling a dangerous line of promoting a tee here, but only because I didn’t realise that Hard Boiled clothing were ever so helpful to their customers and have made many (all? I haven’t had time to check) of their designs available as a tee/ scoop neck/ three-quarter length/ long sleeve (HYA’s main concern)/ tank top and as a raglan. My choice for the day comes in a wide variety of colours too, power to the consumer!

I don’t know what a raglan is, and google images isn’t really helping me (best clothes blogger ever!).

I really like the idea of making designs available in different types of apparel, and I wish I saw it more, but it is understandable that many of the smaller independent artists that I feature here can’t afford to take the risk.

I like this chairs long sleeve T (or raglan), the design is simple yet interesting, and I guess from the inset picture is has printing on the back, and I love printing on the back, unless it’s tour dates for a band in which case it just lets people know I went to see the Foo Fighters in 2002.

Costiness=$Various, if a raglan has long sleeves then it’s $34, the long sleeve tee version is $42, URL here.

    Raglan = shirt with raglan shaping for the sleeves. Regular t-shirts have a slightly set-in sleeve, where the armhole is “scooped” out of the side of the shirt and the sleeve is sewn into that hole.

    For a raglan, the sleeve and the body of the shirt meet at about a 45-degree angle that starts at the bottom of the armpit and ends at the top of the shoulder. Short answer: regular tee = set-in sleeve, baseball shirt = raglan.

    Thanks for clearing that up Arlette (cool name btw it makes Andy seem mighty pedestrian). And thanks for the luuurve, validation is worth almost as much as advertising money!
