Just starting out…

by Andy on July 28, 2016



I’m a one man band, I’ve always loved my T shirts as I think do most blokes but being a graphic designer I had an itch that needed scratching!

I got disillusioned with my job and decided I’d have a good old scratch and spend my savings to try and launch Limebox tees,
its by no means a success yet but I’ve only been trading for 6 months and had a great response so far.

My designs are evolving and I’m quite excited to see where we are this time next year.

Ta!

Paul.

Andy: From one “one man band” to another, good luck! I do wonder what the legality of using those famous faces is, but considering what people like TeeFury get away with it seems like these days copyright is a very fluid thing.

2 New Ts from Junkfunk featuring Gino Bartali and the Peace Race

In an era when Italian cyclists dominated the world Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali were the poster boys of their generation, the fierce rivalry between the pair divided Italy into two camps coppiani or bartaliani. Where Coppi was the more mercurial and charasmatic Bartali the tough dogged fighter, winning the Giro D’Italia 3 times and the Tour De France twice. But off the bike he was a modest and devoutly religious man nicknamed ‘Gino the Pious’.

During World War 2 Bartali would play an instrumental role in saving and protecting the jewish community from the Nazis by carrying counterfeit documents, passports and photos across borders hidden inside his frame on his long training rides. He also hid his jewish friend Giacomo Goldenberg and his family in his cellar at huge personal risk to himself and his own family, these acts of heroism he kept to himself. “Good is something you do, not something you talk about,” Bartali once explained.

“Real heroes are others, those who have suffered in their soul, in their heart, in their spirit, in their mind, for their loved ones. Those are the real heroes. I’m just a cyclist.”

Eventually he told his son about his exploits during the war but was still keen not to tell others.

Our T shirt celebrates this humble man Gino Bartali

peace race

The design features Gino’s quote “Some medals are pinned to your soul, not to your jacket.” which sums up this modest hero of cycling.Probably the biggest sporting event held behind the iron curtain during the cold war in the former communist eastern bloc countries the Peace race was first staged in 1948 and was meant to galvanize the communist spirit and rival the wests ‘Tour de France’ in many ways it was a bigger event as factories and schools were encouraged to down tools and support the race as it trundelled through the towns and villages encompassing the cities of Prague,Warsaw and Berlin resulting in huge crowds and swathes of people lining the route.
The Peace Race also known as ‘Friedensfahrt’ (German) ‘Závod míru’ (Czech) ‘Preteky mieru’ (Slovak) ‘Wy?cig Pokoju’ (Polish) and ‘Course de la Paix ‘(French) has now been consigned to the pages of history,

Our T shirt celebrates this historic race in our updated graphic.

Andy: I like both tees in terms of design, but I feel like you need to be a cycling fan to get away with the Gino Bartali shirt, whereas the Pease Race design is something I’d happily wear despite not getting on a saddle for quite a few years.

Altru Apparel took a road trip from Los Angeles, through Baja California, Mexico. Ending the 1st half of the trip at Cabo San Lucas, we turned around and came home. With the trip completed we incorporated the fun, adventure, colors and inspirational memories into some designs for summer tees and tanks.

Andy: Damn, those are some nice lookin’ tees, and with it being Altru Apparel I know the quality is going to be up there with the best.

People love pizza. They also love silly graphic tshirts. Why not combine the two? This shirt reflects my sentiments toward one of America’s favorite foods: When everything else is falling apart, you always have pizza.

Andy: I like it!

Andy: At first when I saw these shirts I thought that they were “too colourful for me”, a 31 year old guy that is still far too self-conscious for his own good, but you know what? These designs are really cool and there’s something refreshingly different about them, even if I’d still be a little scared to wear them out of the house. Thanks for the submission Gladys!

AnSnarkist Shirts For Those Who AmSnarky

by Andy on July 20, 2016



Sometimes you just gotta be sarcastic.
Sometimes you just want to express this as quickly as possible.
Sometimes you just need a shirt that says it all.
Sometimes you just need a bit of AnSnarky in your life.

More designs available. Male and Female. Many sizes, cuts and colors.

Andy: These are really, really not for me, and to be honest I don’t think they’ll appeal much to HYA readers either, but I do like to provide different views on the tee world.

Toy artist Paul Shih just launched two new clothing lines on Threadless. “Hollow Threat” is driven by the energy of heavy metal, punk and rock music, a collection of artwork based on Paul’s designer toys.

“Authentic Counterfeit” is inspired from the materialistic world we live in today. The designs are reminiscent of brands and icons trapped in our brains.

Andy: The “Hollow Threat” series has caught my attention more here, I really like that style and there’s some clever ideas in the designs.

SOL – SEED OF LIFE

While commercial clothing focuses on mass production and fitting in, SOL-Seed Of Life is about standing out and self-expression! That’s why their designs are psychedelic, spiritual, and visionary. They offer unique art on a variety of items, from T-shirts, dresses, and hoodies to an array of bags and cushion covers. Those who have an interest in psychedelic art will find that there’s really an item for everyone.

Andy: The designs aren’t really to my personal taste, but I can appreciate the intricate designs.

Fun Shirts for History Nerds

by Andy on July 15, 2016



I started History Tees because I was jealous of my friends who were sports fans, and had limitless options of showing the passion for their team. I like ancient history, but couldn’t really find the equivalent for history nerds like me, so here we are!

I don’t watch baseball, I read about the Roman Empire. I can’t tell you the starting line up of the 1987 Edmonton Oilers, but I can tell you the tribes of ancient Gaul.

Thanks for checking us out!

Andy: Cool idea, I like the way it takes something we;re all used to and puts a fresh twist on it, but is pretty unusual in the tee game these days.
