Review of Magick Outlaw’s Cool Tanks (and Tee) – Perfect for Spring and Summer!

Post image for Review of Magick Outlaw’s Cool Tanks (and Tee) – Perfect for Spring and Summer!

I received a hefty package of samples from Magick Outlaw last week and without a doubt it made my day. This Philadelphia-based company asked me to review three tri-blend tanks from their Summer 2012 line, (one of which is The Summoner, pictured above), as well as a tri-blend tee which is already available for purchase in their shop. First of all, when I opened the box, I was greeted by creative, yet simple packaging that captivated me right away. All the products were wrapped in tissue paper and then placed on top was a postcard (with a nice, personal message to me on the back, which is always valuable in my eyes), but what got the most smiles out of me was the wax seals on two corners of the postcard. Details like this impress me without a doubt.

After I had admired the packaging, I ripped it all open to reveal the tanks and the tee and right away I was impressed by the quality, print, smell (yes I love to smell new tees) and the feel of each. I have taken photos of each tank and the tee to show the print quality to all you readers. As you can tell, it all looks very well done and trust me, it feels good to the touch as well – after a few washes the ink does become softer, like most tees.

The tri-blend tee, titled Shapeless Freaks, (pictured below) fits somewhat largely on me being as it is a Men’s small, but I have no problem with that because I do like to occasionally wear a loose fitting tee and this one is in no way too loose on me, so I will keep wearing it (and wearing it!) I like the design; utilization of simple shapes to create a design that is attractive to the eye and makes people intrigued – I certainly am. I love the small touches as well, like the Magick Outlaw logo on the sleeve and the custom printed tag, though somewhat disappointed the size isn’t printed as well, because I do sometimes like to check the size of my tees if need be and obviously that little sticker is not going to last, but again, that doesn’t overly bother me at all.

Rainbow, the tank I am wearing in the photo below, is gorgeous and colorful. Again, the logo is incorporated on the lower left hand corner of the tank and is quite elegantly placed. This tank fits quite nice and I feel quite nice in it, but I would like to stress to females that all these tanks do show a bit of skin and if you choose to wear a bra, it most likely will show. Most females have no problem showing a little skin in the chest area, but if you are in any way self conscious of that you could always layer or add a cardigan, no problem! I will not be wearing a cardigan or jacket – these tanks will be perfect for those hot, Summer days here at the beach where I roam.

The next tank, Herringboned, is a lovely shade of burgundy or cranberry with bold colors on top, which is probably what I like most about it. Oh, but not only that, I like the print on the back as well – what a nice, subtle surprise. Like most of their designs, the Magick Outlaw logo is incorporated into the design, but never over-powering the art.

Lastly, The Summoner tank (shown right below and pictured on me at the very top) is possibly my favorite of the bunch, simply because it is a well constructed design and it encompasses what I like most about this brand; the use of simple shapes to make pleasing and polished designs. This one incorporates black with a pop of red, which both look very good on the heather gray tri-blend and happily I see the logo appropriately placed on it, as well as bold text which very much adds to the design as a whole. One last small detail that I really love: the brim of the “Summoner’s” hat leads into the “M” of the type-face, bringing it all together very nicely.

All in all, I must say I am satisfied and happy with Magick Outlaw. Their customer service, packaging, overall quality and fit are what I look for when I am in search of tees, and trust me, I can be picky. I would also like to add that Magick Outlaw has a very nice lookbook worth checking out – quality photos of the products on pretty people, shot by Josh Pelta-Heller / koalafoto.com.

    Such a good review. Their designs are really good as well, I gravitate towards patterns and I love the Shapeless Freaks design.
