Piekuo ‘Bat’ – Review

by Ben_P on June 28, 2015

Recently I got the opportunity to review Pieukuo. I was pleasantly surprised when receiving the package. It was the little additions to the T-shirt that makes this new starter seem more like an established brand. They have customised tape for their packaging, lovely information card as well. It’s definitely a very professional set up they have going, the website, packaging and final product all make this brand into someone to definitely keep on your radar.

Going into the packaging, it was simple nothing too extravagant in terms of what it was actually delivered in a simple brown box. I can’t really fault anyone for not splashing out on over the top packaging because it’s one of those things that you end up tearing through and discarding anyway. I really thought the tape was a nice little touch as I’ve already mentioned as it definitely puts a personal touch onto a plain packaging.

On opening parcel I was greeted by a clear plastic bag protecting the garment and inside with it was a descriptive card. It’s these little things that all add up to creating a very professional and established look for such a young brand.

First off the design. I really like this design, it’s got a certain appeal that I can’t quite portray into words very eloquently, it reminds me of an old school 8-Bit video game enemy, It certainly appeals a lot to me at least! It’s again very nice that it isn’t a pop culture mashup thrown together that with a tenuous link – so it certainly gets a few little extra points on that side from me.

I do admit that one negative I had about the t-shirt to start with was that it seemed a tad too tight, the neck is very tight and I felt that across the chest felt slightly too tight for a medium shirt however I was pleasantly surprised because I was under the assumption this would be an uncomfortable shirt to wear for extended periods of time – it wasn’t. If you’re thinking of buying a shirt from these guys just be aware that the neck lines are tighter than average – which isn’t a negative aspect but I suppose I’m used to having a bit of wiggle room with my t-shirts and thats a personal preference.

The feel of the shirt is nice, it’s soft and feels very durable. The print as well is 2 colour screen print that has so far shown absolutely no signs of cracking, it definitely feels like it will last a long time, the one down side of this print is that it feels slightly heavy on the shirt and to the touch isn’t the nicest of prints – but really its a welcome trade off to have this image stay fresh looking for longer. The price of the Bat is £15 which I feel for all of what they’ve put into the design and overall experience is a very reasonable price.

Just a note that this design comes both as a T-Shirt and as a Sweat. Just incase one bat isn’t enough why not get both!

Overall I’m really impressed with Piekuo – they’re a relatively new brand in the grand scheme of things and the whole product from start to finish just looks fantastic, the website is beautifully design and they’ve really got a fantastic functioning website in my eyes. The designs are varied and they’re certainly unique. You’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd with anything from their site
