January 2015


by Andy on January 30, 2015

Hi all,

We are a streetwear brand from Brighton, England. Here are a few items from our store! feel free to check us out. Inspired by street culture and skate scene.

Check it here:

Feel free to use the code ‘BLINDEYE’ for a 20% discount off your order. Thanks dudes!

Andy: There’s nothing wrong here, I like that they’ve got a clear idea of what they want to do, and they’re charging very reasonable prices for their items. However, as an outsider there’s not a huge amount to draw me into the designs, they’re clearly based around being part of their community, and I’m not so there’s not as much to make me want to buy something. That’s not a bad thing, if people want your stuff then more power to them, grow that community and you’ll never have to worry about “passing trade” like I get running Rigu (where the vast majority of sales come from Google searches).


Bittor Beraza designs in DBH

by Andy on January 30, 2015

I’m Bittor Beraza an illustrator and graphic designer based in Bilbao.
Now I’m here to illustrate your outfit with mind-blowing designs.
From lettering to illustrations.
Take a look to my store, I’m sure there is something you’d like to wear.

It’s my first time selling my artworks on clothes so I’d like to read your opinion Andy ;)

Andy: One of these designs sticks out more than the others, and not in a good way. If you’re producing a design with the intent of people buying it you have to ask yourself why someone would buy it or be attracted to the design, and i just can’t think of any reasons why a person would want to walk around with a large print of a toilet with teeth on it. Anyone?


Screen printing uchi sunset T shirt

by Andy on January 30, 2015

Hi again

We put together a short video and blog for the new “uchi sunset” Tee just printed and wanted to share it with everyone. It was quite a tricky print to get right as explained in the blog:

Haven’t come across many videos on your blog so hopefully this is cool to include?

many thanks

Andy: I like it! Thanks for the submission.


uchi’s Golden Section T shirt

by Andy on January 29, 2015

Hi guys, just wanted to share with you news about one of tour new tracks just finished and the inspiration behind it.

“The Fibonacci sequence and the work of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian are the inspiration behind the newest uchi joint entitled Golden Section.
Available in men’s cotton T shirts and women’s bamboo T shirts. ”

You can read the full blog here:

many thanks

Andy: Thanks for the submission!


New designs from Breakincase Tees. A novelty T-shirt company that puts real items in all of its designs. Featured here are the “Choking Hazard” Tee, which features a genuine XL condom and the “DRUGS” movie poster Tee which has a pouch with a baggie of “herb” and assorted pills.

All shirts are 100% washable and contain completely legal items.

Andy: I am surprised that these guys came to HYA and thought that their tees would be a good fit for the site. Also, I would be surprised if anyone wearing that ‘choking hazard’ ever needed to use the condom because of wearing the shirt. Then again, if you find a woman that is so enamoured with you because of the shirt they she will sleep with you, definitely use that condom, maybe use two.


Are You Ready For Urban Kawaii!

by Andy on January 29, 2015

Trying to look like yourself is tough when everyone is trying to look the same. We love rare fresh fashion that values and highlights your individuality, it’s all about fun and games at Kawaii London. Everything is designed and hand-printed by Galina Gorlova with the softest materials and the brightest kawaii and urban fashion. Our inspiration comes from every day and our main goal is to make the everyday much more exciting.

Andy: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these aren’t my styles but there’s not really anything wrong with them. They definitely need to be using model images rather than mockups though, there’s no real excuse these days.

Andy: How can they have jewelry that is so interesting, and yet that women’s top is just so average and uninspired? I guess you have to have some staples in a shop, but that kind of thing is going to be hard to convert new visitors into paying customers.

Skull Head Sweatshirt from Fit Out Apparel

by Andy on January 27, 2015

Newly released Skull Head sweatshirt from Fit Out Apparel! For a limited of time use coupon codePHUCKIT‘ to receive $5.00 off your entire order!

Andy: Obviously, this isn’t to my personal style, but it is interesting to think about how a decade ago producing an item like this would have been practically impossible for small brands, whereas now an all-over prints is easily achievable for a lot of brands even if it does still cost a bit more than a standard print.


Pizza Rebellion – In Pizza We Crust.

by Andy on January 27, 2015

When we say “pizza”, me don’t just simply mean the noun. We understand it as a verb. It’s a state of mind, an impulse, a lifestyle, a passion. We understand it as a belief. Holy pizza: The cult of exquisite crust, satisfying fragrance, stringy and juice cheese…an unpretencious divinity that unites us all.

The true aim of our religion is to evangelize our love and manifest our feelings when sharing a tasty slice with our friends. Join the Pizza Rebellion!

Andy: Frankly I’m surprised that it’s taken just over 9 years for this to be the first pizza-based t-shirt company that has crossed my inbox.

our vision
since 2001, symbolika is dedicated to producing highly unique, experimental visionary and psychedelic artworks inspired by shamanic experiences, infused with elements from spirituality and nature. our vision is simple – inspire and get inspired :)

the artworks
the artworks are developed using several techniques & tools – organic and digital, modern and classical, illustration and 3d. from spiritual symbolism to intricate sacred geometry, from buddhism to mauri tattoo art. all of those diverse and sometimes even conflicting worlds, combined with original symbolism, are balanced and enriched into unified and constantly evolving designs.

the printing
along the years we have developed and evolved our silk screen printing techniques – symbolika artworks take into account the “space between the lines”, preferring to use the colour of the fabrics as an integral part of the colour palette, thereby reducing the thickness of each print affording a more comfortable and more wearable fashion item.

the products
our products are unique and personal. we take great care into every detail of each product we make. we design, cut, stitch, glue & print all of the stuff we sell. we pour our hearts into each stage of the manufacturing process – this is our passion and we hope it shines through!

see you on the other side! ;)

Andy: Not the kind of thing I’d wear, but it looks well done.

Black Panda Label

by Andy on January 22, 2015

Black Panda Label is my new and upcoming clothing line for urban wear. I wanted to incorporate something that would target the younger generation. My official website is

Andy: I know I’m being elitist when I say this, but if you sell your clothing through Cafepress (and therefore have no risks beyond the amount of time you put into it) you don’t really have a label.

Andy: If you want to promote your t-shirt design, it’s usually a good idea to create a promo image that isn’t just an iPad screengrab of the product page. You put more in, you get more out.
