What was new at laFraise this week?

by Andy on May 29, 2014




Three new tees at laFraise this week, what a pleasant surprise!

The swing one is well done but doesn’t excite me too much, the food truck is a really nice detailed piece but I think they aren’t letting it sing on the heather grey (fortunately you can pick a whole rainbow of tee colours for the print), and the sea shirt is just one of those lovely designs in the classic laFraise style.

Sinotology Relaunched With 4 New Shirts

by Andy on May 29, 2014



After a year long hiatus, Sinotology has relaunched with a new look, a new logo, a new site, and most importantly, 4 new shirts (Drunken Boxing, Chubby Boy, Lion Door Knocker, and The Mahjong Bird Rises). We are a brand that has Chinese culture and lifestyle at its heart, and art and design at its soul. This release is only the beginning and there will be many more in the near future. We invite you to come take a gander at our new site. Use offer code HYA10 to get 10% off your purchase (ends in 2 weeks). Thanks so much!

Andy: Great to see these guys are back, I’ve always been a fan.

Usually, I’m not one to get too excited about the mashups that are on daily sites like RIPT, TeeFury, and the rest, but these parody album covers are actually really cool, and definitely something different in the world of mashup designs, which is refreshing to see. I’ve posted a few of my favourites up there but they actually have 25 different album covers in the range, some of which I understand and some of which I don’t quite get, but that’s probably my lack of musical knowledge to blame once again.

Check out the whole range here, tees are $10 as usual, and you’ve got until May 31st (aka Saturday) to pick up anything you like, otherwise it will be gone forever… or maybe end up on a smaller site…. or RedBubble… for more money.

I haven’t seen any of Orange is the New Black, but it didn’t take a lot of Googling for me to work out what the Litchfield Women’s Penitentiary shirt was all about. It’s a nice, simple, and subtle shirt for fans of the show. We don’t have General Motors over here in the UK, so I can’t really comment on whether they are garbage or not, but perhaps their lack of global presence says something about the quality of the cars.

Both shirts are $14 each this week at Tshirt Laundry.

When I first saw this coupon code in their newsletter I presumed that it would last until the end of May, because no one has a sale running for a month, right? Wrong, the coupon code AGEOFAWESOME will get you 20% off everything at Made with Awesome (who do have some really cool designs) until June 30th, nice!

Snorg Tees demand Mutant Rights Now!

by Andy on May 28, 2014




Three pop culture tees from Snorg this week with the X-Men inspired design being the winner for me.

Shirts are as low as £6 at Fair & Bare until Saturday, which is a pretty ridiculous price, especially considering the calibre of the artists on the site and that they only use Fairtrade cotton shirts.

Not much I can add to that except a link: Split Reason

Offend My Eyes was started by a couple who got sick of being judged by other people, just for being themselves.

“We sell clothing and accessories that make a bold statement about who you are; whether that offend’s people eyes or not. We don’t care who you are, or what you look like, you’re all awesome to us!

WE SUPPORT BEING YOU”

Offend my eyes sell a range of offensive and grotesque designs that can be seen on Tshirts, vests, shorts, hats and accessories; they are certainly not for the faint hearted!

www.offendmyeyes.co.uk

Andy: The idea of a brand being created with the intention of offending people has always struck me as odd, purposefully doing something to make people uncomfortable doesn’t sit well with me, but of course that reflects upon me as a person, which is exactly what this brand is about, being who you are. Then again, if the kind of person you are is someone that wear a shirt with an octopus with a vagina on a mouth printed on it you might want to take a quick look in the mirror, or maybe my age is catching up with me.

Beyond the style element (which clearly isn’t for me), everything else looks well done, the prints, the site, branding is solid, so I definitely can’t fault them on the technical aspects of the business.

We always had been fascinated by how cultures express themselves thru art. Australian natives or indigenous mastered many types of painting or art forms that pre date European Colonization. We choose to choose to do Dot Painting as our new t-shirt design because it is still use as a form of expression thru art.

Australian Aboriginal Art (Dot Painting):
This type of Aboriginal art is known as “Papunya Tula” or “dot painting” in this we find the vision of the natives about nature, religious beliefs, traditions and the world dreams being translated in materials like wood, caves, ceremonial clothes , Shells, Human body and others. Many of these paintings are very old; some were made before the last ice age. Currently this type of art is highly valued for its beauty and complexity. This type of art exhibits around several museums worldwide including the Museum of Australian Aboriginal art “La grange” (Neuchâtel, Switzerland) or the “Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection” the University of Virginia in the United States.

Use coupon: HIDE20%OFF at check out and get 20% discount on this new t-shirt design by 2 Flags Clothing.

Andy: Very nice, great submission!

Cool tees from Tizana Design

by Andy on May 23, 2014





Tizana Design were a company that got in touch with me back when I was in Japan about their Kickstarter project, and unfortunately by the time I got home the project had been cancelled. However, Kickstarter isn’t the only way they t-shirt brands can get launched (shocking, I know), and they opened the shop anyway with four really nicely done designs.

Each of the tees are printed on tri-blend American Apparel tees, which I think are probably my favourite blank shirt, so they’re on a solid footing there and the style of the designs is really wearable too, I can’t see anyone not liking these. Shirts are $24 a piece.

I don’t know why I like this shirt, but I do.

Costiness=$15 Buy it at Teespring (4 more pledges needed to get it printed)

FLY53 SS/14 Lookbook

by Andy on May 23, 2014



The founders of FLY53 have always held a great passion for music and have enjoyed playing in many bands over the years. FLY53 began after the realisation that their bands were not as successful as their rivals during the mid 90s. As a result they designed T-shirts for other bands. This success led to a limited series of FLY53 T-shirts, which developed into one of the UK’s premier streetwear brands you see today.

Remaining true to their roots with a strong reference to their music heritage; everything from the design process to the manufacturing of the clothing pays a tribute to the industry.A great focus on quality is achieved through an excellent manufacturing standard.

FLY53 continues to design graphic T-shirts that possess a sense of humour and character. The illustrations and prints embrace a rock and roll attitude, adding a tongue in cheek element to the brand.

Andy: Looks great, thanks for the submission!
