Sure, I’ll most likely never actually visit this store, but it doesn’t stop me thinking that it’s cool Wrongwroks have opened up a shop in Taipei.


Pony Boy have some really cool pocket tees

Post image for Pony Boy have some really cool pocket tees

Pocket tees do seem to have exploded in popularity over the past year, and when you see these tees from Pony Boy it’s easy to see why. They’re clean but still with a sense of fun, and you can’t wear a big print all the time so it’s nice to have a bit of balance in your wardrobe. I’m going to go ahead and assume that they don’t have the license for the Marvel characters, and since they’re just using the images as is I don’t think that would stand up to a lot of scrutiny if you cried ‘fair use’, but the water based designs with the diver screen print are the most interesting here for me anyway. Shirts are £18.99 or £19.99.


Post image for Tee and Toast opens in Australia, offers 20% for the first week

The lovely Claire from Tee and Toast has gone global, opening an online store in Australia to cater for her customers on the other side of the planet.

Interestingly, whilst there is some crossover (some designs on the same theme but often with a different graphic), this Australian version offers many localised design of famous Australian icons such as the boomerang, which makes this site much more than just a way for people in that part of the world to get Tee and Toast gear quicker than before (and there’s free shipping to Australia and New Zealand too). They messaged me on Friday saying about there being 20% off for their first week. I don’t actually know when they opened so it might be the calendar week (ending tomorrow), so some other day, but if you want something you might as well grab it now to get that sweet saving.


Post image for Exclusive coupon code for 10% off at, the brand with more pop culture t-shirts than you could shake a very large stick at, have been kind enough to offer HYA readers 10% off everything in store (not just the Avengers tees I’ve posted above). Use the coupon code HYATEES at the checkout to receive the discount.

One of my favourite things about WLF is that they seem to do some much more with the licenses they have (yep, all their tees are legit) than most other places, their artwork appeals to fans of the TV show or movie, rather than just slapping the logo on a shirt and being done with it.

Favourite for me at BustedTees this week is ‘Don’t Mess With Tetris’, as if you actually care which I like the most.

I just saw this message go up in a Facebook group I’m a member of:


Just thought id throw this out for you good folks. From now until Monday 1st Oct there will be free shipping on all orders worldwide. Go grab something from the teashop then use code ‘FREESHIPPING‘ at checkout.

Free worldwide shipping? Why, that’s awful nice of Edward Teabelly.


Post image for EpicEmbrace: 48 hour tee site launches with a Star Wars shirt

EpicEmbrace is the latest in a long line of companies to run the 24 hour/48 hour/1 week format that has been so successful for TeeFury, RIPT and Shirt.Woot, offering pop culture t-shirts for a limited time (48 hours in their case) for the price of $10 (plus shipping, presumably). It’s hard to tell if they will be able to set themselves apart from the rest of the daily tees ites, but at least they’re starting off right in terms of design with ‘Howl AT-AT the Moon’ by geek_chic_tees who is no stranger to HYA readers, and their website is really slick too.

I’ve added them to the list of brands that I will check out every morning for the daily roundup, so expect to see more of them in the future, and if they ever do a cheap grab bag sale I’ll pick one up for testing.


Introducing TeePony: Cool tees from Brighton

by Andy on September 28, 2012

Post image for Introducing TeePony: Cool tees from Brighton

Thinking about it, I’ve never really been to Brighton, I’ve driven through in a hurry once but never actually taken a good look around one of Britain’s coolest cities. It’s funny how I’ve been so many places and yet there are loads of places in the UK that I’m yet to explore. Hell, I’ve only been to Scotland 3 times and the border is only an hour away from where I live.

TeePony, who as you’ve by now worked out are located in Brighton on the South coast, are a new-ish company producing limited edition tees for men. Considering that they’re new it’s suprising to see they already have 48 tees in their range, which is something that you wouldn’t expect from a brand that was even one or two years old. There is definitely a certain style to what they’re doing, bold shapes and patterns, it’s all very appealing and I can see people wanting to buy it if they were in a shop (TeePony are aiming to get themselves in a few boutiques). I do see one tee in there which has Banksy artwork on it, which is something I don’t like to see, and a few of the other pop culture designs may be a little suspect when it comes to copyright (I like the designs, I just don’t know if they could get in trouble for them), but other than that there is a lot to like here. With their super-quick release schedule I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of TeePony soon.


Daily t-shirt releases for September 28th

Post image for Daily t-shirt releases for September 28th

Nyan Cat meets Van Gogh’s Starry Night at TeeFury in one of the best executed mashups I’ve seen for a long time. Sure, there’s no real reason for these two to be in the same image, but that’s the point, right?

Shirt.Woot have a fun science shirt.

RIPT have another of those shirts that is really well designed, but I just don’t understand why someone would want to wear something based on a pun like this.

Post image for Antisparkle End of Summer Sale [Submitted]

As the warm weather fades away and we prepare for Fall, Antisparkle is offering steep discounts on our Summer line (along with a few other designs). T-shirt prices start at $12.99 and sizes are limited.

As a special thanks for Hide Your Arms readers enter ‘HYA10‘ at checkout for an additional 10% off.

Andy: They submitted this just over a week ago, but the sale is still going, however, it is also a week closer to finishing even if I don’t when that end date it. Basically, if you want something go and buy it now.


Post image for The ‘Heart Pocket’ tee from Clee Clothing that doesn’t have a pocket

To be honest, I don’t care one jot that this design from Clee Clothing doesn’t actually have a pocket on it since to me the pockets are just there for aesthetics anyway, it’s not like anyone really puts stuff in there, so having a printed outline of a pocket is pretty fun, and the stitched on button helps take the illusion that little bit further.

Costiness=£20 White T-shirt, Grey T-shirt (they will customise the tees to turn them into tank tops as pictured above) / £25 Grey Sweatshirt


Post image for Like black & white? Then you might like t-shirts from Pilpeled

It’s not every day that HYA gets an e-mail from Israel, and more specifically Tel Aviv, which gave the message from Pilpeled a bit more novelty than most I receive, especially since they must have a poet doing their copywriting. Here’s an example to let you know what they’re all about:

Based in TLV, Pilpeled is a prolific graphic designer and artist with a darker sense of design, Pilpeled uses black to dig deeper and bring curiosity out from behind the shadows.

PILPELED started in 2005 with his first flayers for posters and shows mostly in Israel while working his own tshirts and another products , as well on his fine art prints and original works

PILPELED was founded on the art, design and products of Nir peled.
Pilpeled is strict about distancing himself from the mingling crowds.
He prefers communicating with the world through images that represent a kind of dark but tempting paradise.
The glum atmosphere, mixed with the sweetness and sense of naiveté that dominates his work.

It’s reading things like that which make my life seem boring, I wake up and write about t-shirts and try to sell lovely camera straps, I can’t even remember the last time that I brought curiosity out from behind the shadows. Joking aside, there are some really cool designs here, the kind of thing that the friend of yours who is cooler than you wears.
