Bones Clothing – Review

by DeeHYA on September 16, 2015

12016209_10153534699340519_1538564687_o

So I had big plans for this blog, I was going to slip on my acid wash jeans, do my make up properly and do it justice but sadly between kids going back to school, me starting Uni, my son having an op and me hardly seeing my husband it just hasn’t happened! Also it’s near impossible to take good pics myself because the detail on these tees are on the back. A quirk I do actually quite like.

Firstly you can access this companies gear via their FB page https://www.facebook.com/Bones-Clothing

You can also view their designs on their site : http://thembones0.wix.com/bones, I really love some of them, the raw graffiti style has a unique spin and their is a mix of colours!

I do particularly like the ‘Doom Bones’ design which has a pretty cool Halloween feel. The mix of the orange and purple perfect for spooky times.

bones

I was sent two tees to test drive, they have a ‘One Size’ approach which can sometimes be good if you want to wear it baggy however though this suited me as female UK size 12, the tee was pretty tight and restrictive on my husband who is normally a large and this tee was a large. The print quality is excellent, the tees themselves are a bit stiff but after a few washes I think they will soften and be super comfy. They are a nice thickness and do not feel cheap!

The tee above features the banana on the front and the massive gorilla on the front! Mine has ‘BONES’ text on the front and the creepy pink hand on the back. I preferred mine to Nick’s. I think it will look cool when tucked into my high waisted jeans.

This guy is just starting out and it would be cool to see some more of his designs. I think they would also look cool on stickers and beanies and stuff!

Hey! It’s been a while since I did a Threadless blog, I’m hoping to get back into it, and what better excuse than a Memorial Day sale there are some really epic staple Threadless reprintes in the sale, some of the cream of the crop!

There were lots of changes to the the Threadless site a while back and I’m trying to find my way round the site again, it does seem a lot less personal and there isn’t as much personality as there used to be. There used to be efforts to made to put an interesting background relevant to the tee and now it’s just all grey and standardised. Nevertheless, the tees are still epic so here are some of my top pics from Threadless today!

Sushi by Benjamin Ang is one of my top favourite tee designs from Threadless, I have no idea how I have managed to not purchase it after adoring it for so long! I’m over the moon too that they had decided to print it onto a purple tank! It makes it even better! They have this in a range of sizes and types (men, women, kids) for $14 so grab a nommy related tee bargain! :)

sushitee

Tees like this are why I am devastated I haven’t been on Threadless for so long, I loved Big Hero 6 so much, by far one of the best kid’s movies that has been out in a long while. One of the highlights of the trailer is when Baymax is stroking Mochi, Baymax has a low battery and sounds drunk! So funny. There is a tee that covers this! I really LOVE Hairy Baby by Samantha Germaine Sim.

hairybaby

If I have blogged this tee once, I have blogged it a thousand times. When my mental filing cabinet things of Threadless, I instantly thing of Mister Mittens’ Big Adventure by Joe Van Wetering! Absolute classic, conversation starter, eye catcher. Every think a person could want in a tee. Poor availability for women, but fully in stock for men, tee bargain for $14! There are a selection of Big Hero 6 tees so it’s well worth dropping by for a rummage.

mistermittens

Sticking with the space theme, Threadless designers always seem to still manage to come up with brand new super funky space related designs. I know my husband would love Planet System by Bernhard Trunkle (epic name!).  I love tees where they are mostly black with a massive pop of colour right on the chest!

planettee

If you fancy something a bit more serious there is plenty of choice too, I normally lean more towards the cute end of the Threadless scale. Astronomical by Wayne Struwig and Andrew G Hobbs, has much more a ‘normal’ or ‘high street’ feel!

astronomicaltee

Back to space again because I was totally taken with all the gorgeous colours on the navy tee. You Are My Universe by ilovedoodle is a super romantic twist on the solar system by depicting them as pretty awesome balloons. I think this tee has quite a feminine feel to it so it might have been cool to see it on a more girly colour! I’d absolutely wear this though, and I’d go for the black scoop neck in girly fit! :)

universetee

Lastly but not leastly and mostly because it’s a mere $7.95, full availability for men and only 2xl for women, I proper love the monotone print on the blue tee with this design of a pretty angry Cruella DeVille, Puppy Love by Paul Tippett could be a great last minute bargain fling into Threadless basket!

deville

Hope people enjoy having a rummage in the Threadless Memorial sale! I’ve had a nice little wander this morning :)

Feminist Apparel – Blog and Review

by DeeHYA on March 2, 2015

Last year I decided to treat myself to a tee from amazing website Feminist Apparel whose designs are designed to raise awareness and create a stir about a range of feminist issues.

Some of the designs are designed with an element of shock value to get the message across. Last year there were some pretty viral videos of little girls dropping the f-bomb in the name of feminism reeling off some quite scary statistics about equal pay, domestic violence and sexual violence.

I particularly like this ‘Feminist as Fuck’ tee!

feministas

As a survivor of sexual violence I find the poor conviction rate of rapists and the way in which victims are treated by the police, men and at times other women absolutely shocking. There should be a huge amount of education men and boys that a ‘No’ means no! I chose this ‘Don’t (get) Rape(d)’ tanks for myself, it’s eye-catching and gets the message over without being over complicated.

IMG_6973

I generally prefer a tank as I normally wear a long sleeved tee underneath to cover my bulky arms. The quality of this is spot on, and the print was good but to be honest I think with this design on the grey it might look quite cool if it faded a little.

I love that Feminist Apparel use an element of humour to get across their message, I think this is an important point of making their tees individual and memorable. I did a bit of a snarf when I saw this ‘Baby Got Books’ one :)

baby-got-books-white-ladies-tee_1024x1024

The tees are $29.95 but I have to say I still get discount codes regularly, infact if you sign up to their newsletter now you can get 15% off. Shipping to the UK was ok too, it was about $12 which I think is reasonable.

Any feminist issue that you have encountered or have beef with you will be able to find a tee to convey this. It’s not just all for the ladies either, there are guys and kids t-shirts too!

I love getting the opportunity to review fab small companies and it’s even better when it’s for an awesome local company! The lady who runs it is genuinely lovely and even makes an awesome charity tee too.

Firstly the tees centre around the company name ‘Brave & the Bold’! All the tees feature this memorable and catchy slogan and I like that this all flows within the brand. It makes the line noticeable, I also quite like sometimes wearing tees similar to my partner but not quite the same and I think this is a cute way round it.

As with lots of companies there are a few less girly fit tees than man fit ones. Although I don’t feel that’s an issue so much anymore, on the high street there are a lot more loose fit tees for girls, probably because we wear so many leggings now. I know I feel better when I have my bottom covered up. The girly fit tees I got to test out were ladies ‘Brave Logo T-shirt‘ and ‘Fearless T-shirt‘. I liked them both, they were extremely comfortable, and both washed extremely well. I’d say they are a standard fit, I’m a bit chested UK12 and a Medium was fine for me. I personal favourite was the ‘Fearless’ on, I particularly liked the grey tee and I think it just felt a bit more sporty. The print looks extremely light on the bottom image but I think it is mostly because it was such a bright day when I shot in them!

NRG_4205

NRG_4233

The gentlemen’s t-shirts that my husband shot in were ‘Brave Wings T-shirt‘ and the ‘Arrows T-shirt‘. My husband normally wears a large because he’s got a bit of a belly and I think these were also a standard fit. The feel of them were thick, but not too thick, and just super soft. I’ve only washed the red ‘Wings‘ one but the print is perfect and it actually feels even softer after a wash. I can already tell that the Wings one is going to be one of husband’s new favourite tees!

side

The charity tee is called the ‘Ross‘ t-shirt, this tee is in memory of a strong, brave, young man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the far too young age of 32. 20% of the sales from this t-shirt go to Cancer Research UK. I’m sure pretty much most of those reading this blog will have been affected by cancer at some point so this is the chance to get lovely tee and support an excellent cause. I think this khaki colour really works well to set the ‘Ross‘ see apart from all the rest.

ross_green_1024x1024

Finally, because I really love the summery colours, and it brings about the illusion of an early summer, I really love the Limited Edition Bahama T-shirt! It’s basically a beach in a t-shirt, I think this would look super cute just with some denim shorts!

bahamabold_1024x1024

I love companies like this with original ideas and not scared to try out ideas like the Bahama tee! Highly recommend dropping this company a ‘like’ or a ‘follow’! Give them a chance! WEAR BRAVE! :D (even have a rummage in their sale!)

Way past due is my review of the awesome Alkemie Apparel! Christmas, childcare and over working myself to actual semi death got in the way.

I was drawn to Alkemie on Twitter, on paper they are everything that I like in tees! Dark, tattoo inspired tees, vest, bags and also jewellery.

I opted for this super cute Cousteau vest! I really like anything with tentacles and the  blue print against the black really pops. I’ve worn this three times and I have to admit, it’s super comfortable and washes like a dream. The quality is excellent and the print is amazing.  For a few more pennies you can get the Cousteau handbag which is actually one of the most awesome bags I’ve seen in a long while and it’s well and truly on my ever growing Birthday list (yes! I know we have just had Christmas). They have an awesome selection of bags which look a pretty good size for Mums too!

octo

They also do some pretty cool dark guys shirts. They have a few designs but I think this Sugar Skull one is my favourite one I also like the added touch of the print on the back. I could see my hubby in this and a lot of the other tees. They are macho without being offensive!

sugar-skull-men-s-t-shirt-2

They also do a cute selection of necklaces some of which co-ordinate with the tees. I opted for the cute bird one, I think I will put the pendant on a choker though for added gothyness! They have a mixture of cute ones, gothy ones, slogan ones. I really like them, totally unusual and would be an awesome gift for someone who you aren’t sure of their size.

2Octo

I highly recommend dropping by the site to have a look at their wares! They also have a sale on so you can try their wares at a reduced price!

She Felt Geeky

by DeeHYA on October 4, 2013

geek1

And now for something completely different! This is a fab etsy shop run by a lady I know loosely via the North East burlesque scene. T-shirts are not what the shop is about and it’s aimed pretty much entirely at the gal side of the population.

She Felt Geeky mostly specialises in super cute geek, comic, gaming, movie fabric panties amongst other things include pasties (nipple tassels) and some cute random one off pieces.

I don’t own any pieces personally but it means a lot for me to support local companies and from the reviews from friends I’ve heard the quality is absolutely first rate.

One selection of pieces that stand out for me when you land in the Etsy store are the Harry Potter, Hogwarts House panties. Here are the amazing Hufflepuff and Slytherin ones. How over the moon would any lady Harry Potter fan be with these! They’d be an excellent stocking filler for Christmas, and they look like they’d be super soft to the touch!

geek2

geek3

Amongst other geek factions you can grab Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Tattoo Print, Halloween Print, Super Cute Floral ones to name but a view! Store owner Miss Buttons also posted an image of this fabric a few days ago so you can totally get your hands some some spooky panties if that’s your bag!

She is super talented and approachable so if you had any requests or ideas I’m sure she would be extremely accommodating! I have to add her pasties are absolutely delightful but I’d better not put boobies on HYA!

I think of of my favourite pieces which is also extremely seasonal are these super cute Halloween panties! Snap them up people, support handmade and UK businesses! :)

Tomtangle – Review http://www.tomtangle.com/

by DeeHYA on September 1, 2013

tomtangle

Earlier in the week, I received a lovely parcel from the lovely team at Tomtangle! I requested man fit as they don’t do girly size however I have tried this on tucked into a pair of shorts and it looked cute on me. We got a surprise design too which is always more fun! :) Package also came with some super cute freebie stickers! I love getting little bits and bobs like that with tees!

Tomtangle specialise in outdoor tees, I love all the bike theme feel tees and I like that they aren’t scared to experiment with bit of colour!

I really like the design we got send which is called ‘Wheel T-shirt’ the tee fabric is absolutely gorgeous and soft to the touch and it’s true to size. My husband wore it all day yesterday and said it was super comfortable and a joy to wear.

My favourite designs on the Tomtangle site are ‘Framed’ and ‘Kaleidospoke‘ which is available in two different colours. The blue with yellow print is probably my favourite tee on the site.

K3_grande

Another brucey bonus is that they wash fantastically! I have washed it and dried it and it’s in as perfect condition as it was

 when it dropped through my letterbox!

Prices are £20 which I’d say is about right for tees of this quality. Perfect gift too for anyone you know who is remotely outdoorsy!

Drop by their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Blog for up to date news and and designs! :)

Love reviewing companies who are brand spanking new! They normally have some awesome fresh ideas and Nausica  are no exception. I fell upon some of their tee images on Facebook and I enjoyed the photography style which then led me onto their site. Tattooed peeps always get me interested.

1078214_528629423876093_1304882009_n

Their statement is

“Nausica is the age of positive vibes through fearless designs, inspired by the love of music and life.”

Their designs are crisp and clean without being dull. All on white tees to bring out the punchiness of the designs. I was asked which I liked the best and I opted for ‘Mechanical Evolution‘ although coming in at a close second is ‘Trippy Mirror‘. Their facebook page is also boasting the new released of pretty awesome design ‘The Buddha Tee’ pictured below. It’s awesome!

1072244_612248535481969_1031111162_o

 

After exchanging a few message with the fella in charge I get a good few about the company and the people running it and I have to admit I adore the tee. The quality feels top notch and it washes like an absolute dream. I’m a UK size 12 and I was sent the Small, I think this would fit up to a small UK 16 comfortably as it’s got quite a bit of stretch.

I could also totally see the designs making stunning tattoos and that also draws me to them.

960927_528629413876094_1569058701_n

They are also one of those companies where I keep checkin’ in to see if they have any new designs, which is always a pretty good sign. If you want to keep up with them you should drop by their:-

Looking forward to seeing some fresh things from them in the future!

Threadless Goodies! 14/07/2013

by DeeHYA on July 14, 2013

1407

Thought I’d pop a little weekend Threadless blog on! Although I have to admit there’s not much fresh since I last wrote one!

I was sorting through my drawers before and I have such an epic number of Threadless tees and pretty much all of them have memories attached to them. Absolutely love how clothes that do that!

Bit of a cutesy design first off! I don’t think I’ve ever blogged this one before so I don’t know if it’s a newbie. Midnight Snack by Jorge Lopez shoes a super adorable blue giraffe having a little nom on the moon! I like it, it’s a tee I would totally wear!

midnightsnack

Seen loads of cyclists lately, probably the pretty glorious summer we are having in the UK currently (toucheswood). This tee might be an awesome one for those with a love for bikes. Obviously Word of Bike by Matt Hoch isn’t going to be for everyone, but I think it’s been quite cleverly done.

world

Thought I’d slip a cute Toy Story tee in! Although, there seems to be an abundance of black tees in this blog now! Evil Dr. Porkchop by Gregory Gosline portrays probably my one favourite character from Toy Story. I think it’s also quite cool that all the kids movie tees don’t always have to be bright colours!

evildr

I really like this newbie tee. It’s yet another black one! It’s simple and original though, I love the hot colours against the black tee! Melting Point by Dan Burgess is a tee I could totally see my husband in!

melting

After eyeing up the showcase of Nathan Pyle’s designs I thought I’d pick my favourite one of his to pop in this blog. There’s quite a selection of cute ones but my favourite one is Rarr, I’m a Killer by Nathan Pyle, I have never seen something so adorable dressed up as Death!

rarr

Lastly for this wee blogette because it touches the Geek in me! Totally reminds me of all the hours I spent selling stuff to lighten my inventory in Diablo II (I know it’s Zelda). It’s Dangerous to Go Alone, Take This by Stacy Eyles applied to pretty much every fantasy game EVER!

dangerous

Anyway that’s it for my blog! Off for some quiche! Ooh but also there’s a kids sale on Threadless too!

Threadless – $10 Tees!

by DeeHYA on June 21, 2013

2106

Oooh bit of a Threadless sale, don’t mind if I do! Lots of mega awesome tees for a mere $10! Get ‘em while they’re hot kids! Some utter faves too it’s not like they’re just doing the ends of the rubbish ones!

I’ve blogged this one reasonably recently but it mixes up a couple of favourites. Beauty and the Beast and Doctor Who. Love the idea of this design and the weird mixture of the two. I’d love to see Belle as the Doctors assistant this tee is called Adventure Waits by Karen Hallion.

adventure

Another awesome tee on green which has sold out and reprinted a few times is Sushi by Benjamin Ang. I have no idea why I haven’t purchased this baby yet, probably my favourite Threadless tee on a green tee. I have to admit that I’m off sushi a bit since my son vomited some into my hands.

sushi

Getting away from the green, Ugly Summer Sweater by David Schwen is also a mega tee! It’s packed with primary colours and also it’s available in a tank so you can get your guns out! Gadooosh! It’s a simple but effective design, nothing I don’t like about it!

ugly

 

I’m deffo favouring the green today! I like this tee because it’s cute and clever and features food with a face! :D Gravity is a Lie by Randyotter is a twist on Newton’s realisation of gravity. Would have been totally different if there was a flying apple.

gravity

Blogging this tee mostly because I haven’t blogged it before, no availability in Guy fit and the numbers are dropping in girly. I like the Skull mans jacket and all the muted colours, I can see that The Greatest Spectacle by Emanoel Melo is one that will surely be reprinted!

spectacle

 

Just because it’s all the rage It’s a Bird? It’s a Plane?… by Eduardo San Gil is a less obvious take on a Superman tee, if you’re wanting to wear one to the cinema but not look like an absolute dork. Unlike the tee above this is sold out for chicks but available for dudes!

itsabird

 

Grab yourself some $10 tees before the sale runs away guys!

Little Bit Of Threadless! 31/05/2013

by DeeHYA on May 31, 2013

3105

Haven’t blogged Threadless, mostly because when they changed everything with their website it made it inaccessible to me to blog, I couldn’t save images so I had to screen shot every single page and then crop the bits I needed out so it was taking the best part of an hour to blog. Also I don’t think the new website has the community feel that it used to, I used to love spending time rating tees but I’m put off. I also went from getting a tee every month from Threadless to every 3-4 months. Not cool.

They’ve also scrapped their $1.50 streetteam points for each pic. I understand why they’d do this however, I miss looking at the galleries of people goofing around the the same tee that I’ve got!

As I haven’t been on for a while I have to familiarise myself with the site again. Some crackin’ new designs though. Feeling big love for Starry Pattern by Fred Hoffman.  Bit of a homage to Mr Van Gogh, can totally see why this one has been printed, shows super originality and also I have a soft spot for all over printed tees.

starry

 

I can see this one being popular with the cat loving Threadless fans, especially as we find kitties cuter than than kids. I also highly recommend girly boat necks, and I think this design would look less severe on the natural colour tee than on the white. This tee is called Drunken Cat Drawings by Jillian Fisher. Quite nice to see some different names on Threadless though, did just feel like they printed designs by the same 3 people all the time!

drunken

Possibly my new favourite Threadless design ever! Me and my 6 year old daughter have just spent about 5 minutes laughing like goons at Magic Bacon Ride by George Ostubo. The facial expressions are fab and the choice to put it on a pale blue tee was a good one. One word, WANT!

bacon

My husband likes this tee, it’s not my cup of tea. I enjoy the tank but I think it looks a but silly on the guy! It is an interesting mix of colour though, I’d be inclined to get it a size bigger and wear a bright pink or yellow long sleeved tee underneath it. I think The City That Never Sleeps by Dina Prasetyawan is a bit of a marmitey tee though.

thenight

 

This next tee isn’t dissimilar to a Unicorn Star Wars tee that I already own from Threadless. Is it too similar? I’m not sure because I kinda want it. Nar Wars by Austin Frankel is so well drawn, all the colours pop and it’s in no way lost on the black tee. Can’t see what isn’t to love!

nar wars

Lastly but not leastly for this blog CATastrophic End of the Milky Way by Niel Quisaba and Soloyo is a cute mixture of colour and a great concept for a tee, although it kind of looks like the cat is spewing it out rather than lapping it up!

milky

Hands-on Dead Legacy Review

by DeeHYA on May 25, 2013

Well, we had some beautiful sunshine today what better day to flounce around in a totally cool tee and write a review! Last weekend I got a tee from epic company Dead Legacy! This company has a huge following, seriously huge like party of over 40,000 people on Facebook! Therefore it was an honour to do a blog for them on Hide Your Arms.

This company has branded itself as a menswear company but I love them, the quality is fabulous on this tee, when I took it out of the envelope it arrived in I was gagging to put it on. It just felt gorgeous in my hands.

I put it on for the first time today and the fit was nice, I’m a female UK size 12 with DD chest and the small gents tee was quite nice and hugged all my bestest lumpy bits.

The tee I got sent was ‘80s Kid‘, which comes in two colour combos, I got the white with the grey sleeves. I love it, can’t wait to wear it again, already planning things in my wardrobe that it would go well with. Plus I am an 80’s kid, although admittedly I don’t remember much of it!

They have a massive selection of tees too, mixture of retro, semi naked chicks, night shots, landscapes, animals. It’s well worth having a nose, at £32.99 you might think they are a tad steep in the price section, however you can’t argue with the quality. Also if you’re wanting to try them out maybe snatch a deal from their sale section.

They also sell phone covers, caps and sweat tops! Over this weekend they have 25% off their sweat tops too. I particularly like this ‘Smoking Aces‘ one which you can get for £39.99 this weekend!

To conclude! Deffo swing by the Dead Legacy site, quality is epic, designs are so varied that you’re bound to find something to suit your style and also they have so many fans that they simply must be doing something right! :D

Button and Bean Personalised Jewellery

by DeeHYA on May 12, 2013

mouldfinal

Ok so it’s not a t-shirt! It’s an odd thing to see on a t-shirt blog right? However despite the fact I wasn’t too enthused about the products based on seeing them on the ‘Not On The High Street‘ website, since I received my necklace from Button and Bean I simply haven’t had it off. It is something that I already know is going to be of immense sentimental value to me. You can also purchase all sorts of unique, one of a kind, special gifts from Not On The High Street.

I had a choice, and I opted for this necklace because it was sizeable enough that it would be able to get a good feel for the quality and also I wanted something that was going to be robust and I could wear it for long periods of time, and I’d be able to wear it for work.

There is a pretty cool selection of products, there is jewellery, cuff-links  keyrings, bookmarks, tree decorations that can all be personalised with fingerprints (or pawprints) of your loved ones.

After you order you get a little cast with which to create the finger print mould for your item. Me and my hubby took pics and broke it down into stages.

Basically you get some white goo and blue goo that you have to mix together, first need to separate it as below:

mouldweb3Mix them together until they are basically one even colour and then place them on to the card. You need to do it quite quickly as it starts to harden. Then firmly place your finger into the mix.

mouldweb1

With the kit they sent us we had enough to do do four fingerprints altogether however, I mixed mine for too long and it began to set. So we ended up with three mounds of three different fingers of my husband.

mouldweb2

After this we posted them in the SAE provide and I received the necklace within a fortnight.

The necklace is super sturdy and I love that it has a story about it and that I am able to talk about it and how much I love my husband. I am fully intending on getting two charms with my kids finger prints on to add to it. Because of the minimalist style of the jewellery it would be a nice gift for a relative who maybe doesn’t wear much jewellery but as I mentioned there are other options of things to can get for gifts. Looking at the site you might think it’s a tidge pricey but these are things that are made ‘just for you’!

My only tiny complaint is the type of chain they’ve used for the necklace keeps catching my hair in it, but it’s no problem to just fish it out.

To conclude I love my Button and Bean fingerprint necklace, I know that it one item I will treasure, love and wear forever and not because it’s worth a lot of money but because it has deep significant meaning for me.

They also have a 10% code on their FB page, the code is XFBD01

Last week I was lucky enough to review a sample from MKNK Clothing! The tee arrived a pretty funky pizza box style packaging with some lovely cute freebies.

When I was first told about this site I hopped on their site to see what they were about.  I enjoyed the site, it’s clean, crisp and bold and all their designs have a flow as if they are part of a cohesive collection.

The designs are all pretty cool, with gaming, music and they are all on white tees. I think it works because it makes the designs pop.  The hoodies are on black and grey and they look awesome too. All the tees are guy fit but I’ve started just throwing them on with leggings, dead comfy! I particularly like this design called Bolt Dismay! All the designs are original, you won’t find anything like these anywhere else.

boltdismay

The quality of the tee I received was first class! It was an absolute joy to wear and I’m totally looking forward to wearing it in the summer with my bright yellow shorts! It also washed super well the print is still as perfect as it was pre wash.

MKNK have also have had some product shots done on models and they are very current and in touch with the young un’s of today. I would definitely be inclined to buy one of these tees or hoodies for my 16 year old brother and I know for a fact he would be happy to wear them.

Drop by their FB page https://www.facebook.com/mknkclothing and also they have a $5 discount code on the go until 30th of April : BUNNYHOP

You also get a cute paper toy to make up! Amazing idea! Haven’t made mine up yet but I am gonna!

Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

by DeeHYA on March 4, 2013

Ooh Threadless your website still freaks me out, I much preferred it before all of the changes, I simply do not like change! Some pretty cool newbie and reprinted tees on the site though, I’m also particularly loving their Toy Story Collection.

Speaking of Toy Story one of my fave parts of the move is the bits involving the aliens.  Teealiens by Sinan Ozdemir is very simple but sums up the move really well in one tee, I reckon about 90% of people will get the movie from this. Absolutely delighted they are doing this in baby and toddler sizes, not sure why they’ve missed out kids though.

Another green tee for you in this blogette! Mixing together Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Doctor Who, I think I just had a Threadless-gasm! There is nothing I don’t like about this tee, it’s super original and Adventure Awaits by Karen Hallion is sure to be one of those tees that is reprinted again and again.

On now for something a bit darker in colour, I Met A Robot by Danny Burgess looks expensive, I think it is because of the combo of Brown with a Goldy colour print. Sadly this hasn’t been reprinted for girls, looks pretty cool on the hoody too.

Feel like it’s cheating blogging this tee, it’s an oldie but a goodie though. I really want it, my Xbox avatar has it for cryin’ out loud! Mister Mittens’ Big Adventure by Joe Van Wetering is a Threadless fave, it’s an explosion of colour and kitty with hex vision joy. There is nothing not to love about this tee

Charity Tee Alert! Invasion by Jose Pablo Ingles Casao is a lovely monotone City Scape with Space Invaders all over it. 25% of sales from each of these tees go to support The Leapyear Project. I’m somewhat confused about what the charity does from the site but I think it’s helping people achieve their aims.

Lastly, ha! I got to type Threadless into Threadless. I got sent one of these awesome quality tees. I can’t get over how much I love it, I love having ‘Threadless’ emblazoned on my wabs! It’s amazing and all Threadless fans need one. Word. This is Threadless Tee by Threadless! OOoooh loads of Threadless in that paragraph.

Tee Busters Review : http://teebusters.com/

by DeeHYA on March 3, 2013

Ok so I’ll hold my hands up, I’ve had this tee for a while, I wore it for a shoot a while ago but I didn’t get any decent pics of the design, I made sure I shot it in the studio today. This skull emblazoned baby was from Tee Busters, I have review a website like this before.

They basically release tees for a limited period of time, so if you see it and decide you want it you need to get in quickly before they release the next design. I’m not sure whether if you specifically wanted one, such as the one I’m wearing in the pic, you’d be able to email them and see if they have any stock? I mean they might hold some old stock.

From the looks of their Facebook Page they seem to run pretty awesome offers (3 tees for 15 Euros) and competitions really regularly. I love when companies get their fans involved, I find it to be really good way of creating a loyal fan base.

I quite like their website, it’s loud and simple to use. You can looks at their previous designs in their Hall of Fame, there are a huge amount of geeky tees on there which bodes well from my point of view. I’ve seen Ninja Turtles, Batman, Spiderman, Misfits, Star Wars, Harry Potter and I could go on for ages! The sample tee I got is called ‘Chemistry is Fun’ and I love it, when I’ve had it on it’s been commented one, I’ve washed it 3 times and it’s in as spectacular condition as it was when the postie put it through my letterbox. Mine is on a navy tee which I think works nicer than the black one here.

The current tee on the website is a ‘Skyfall’ one and I know there’s a whole bunch of Bond fans ready to lap it up!

To sum up, I love my tee from this company, it’s comfortable and I’d say sizing is standard. The print quality is fabulous as is the tee quality. The website is simple to use and they interact with Joe Public. All in all a massive ‘Thumbs Up’ for Tee Busters!

Threadless Spiderman Collection (12/02/2013)

by DeeHYA on February 12, 2013

Well my husband’s Threadless wishlist has just increased by an actual tonne. He absolutely adores Mr Spiderman and these tees are possibly the best results of a design challenge that I have ever seen. Even if you’re not a massive comic fan you can’t help by love at least one of these.

First tee on my Spidey blog is Rock! Paper! Scissors! Web? by Robert Thomas Campbell looks like the front of a retro comic with Spidey totally kicking bottom at Rock Paper Scissors. Absolutely nothing I don’t like about this tee even though there isn’t much colour to it it works perfectly.

If a bit of colour is what you’re after Entanglement Theory by Dean Kotz has an explosion of colour with Spidey foiling some of his biggest enemies. I am particularly enjoying Venom in this. I don’t think Asphalt was the best choice of colour of tee, the Navy kids one looks good though.

entangle

It’s really hard to choose a favourite but this one would be in my top 3 favourites. Spider Fighter 8-bit by Tom Burns is an amazing tee with a beat ‘em up feel featuring some of Spideys biggest enemies. It’s nice to see some new designers names! Amazing how one specific topic can bring so much talent out of the woodwork.

8bit

Sometimes basic is best. Why beat about the bush when it comes to purchasing a Spiderman tee! Spider Web by Alex Solis is your run of the mill, standard Spidey tee. I don’t see any originality but maybe if you were choosing a tee for a friend average is best.

I like the colour red as much as the next dude however I think Spider-Man Wins by Daniel Castell Muiz has probably over done it slightly, it’s quite hard to work out what goes wear however as the name of the tee is Spider-Man Wins and you can make out that the man himself is standing on a pile of busted villains, this is deffo a tee of win!

This last one in my blog is my fella’s faves, I may be manipulated to use my few Threadbucks! Inertia by Alan Bao shows a moonlit battle between Spiderman and Venom. I really like it too, it’s powerful and everything about it works for me!

I have got really excited about these tees, I hope to see more Superhero shenanigans in the future! Thank you Threadless!

So late last week the postie brought me a jiffy bag of joy in the form of a t-shirt from London company  ‘Naked Sunday‘ so I shot in the t-shirt with local photographer Penny Edwards in the studio and I got my fiance Nicholas to brave the cold in the tee too.

Firstly, Naked Sunday has a lovely crisp, clean and easy to use website, you get a feel for their designs even via something as basic as the font of their logo. The tees are mostly black, white and red which little accents of other colours for particular designs. There are currently only 6 designs, I hope they come up with more as popularity grows.

As I was allowed to pick I opted for ‘X Marks the Spot’ which is a design centred around an old style map. My favourite design on the site is probably ‘Femme Fatale‘ but I thought that my fiance would prefer wearing the one we received.

At £30 these aren’t your basic, budget tees. Both the quality of the shirt and the print is super high and if you’re looking for a tee for a night out I’d recommend these big style. I even enjoyed the fit of the tee on me and sometimes I have problems with bloke fit tees. The shirt is flexible without feeling flimsy and the print is vibrant without being stiff.

I’m very excited about Naked Sunday and I am looking forward to more genius original designs on super quality tees!

Threadless : New and Reprints 20/01/2012

by DeeHYA on January 20, 2013

Yay! Finally some awesome desirable new designs on Threadless, it’s been a while since I have been on Threadless and been like want, want, want, need! Kitties, fishies, peas, pandas, oh my yay! There are still plenty of sale bargains to be had too!

Lots of Threadless fans are people who are super Panda-lovers and this would be an awesome and slightly sinister addition to their collection. Agent Panda by Jerry Maninang shows a super cool panda in his suit and shades. I’m intimidated by the model shots. Let me hide behind this pillow!

Another animals peoples go crazy for is UNICORNS! Me and my daughter always search for unicorn tees when clothes shopping! Nothing is going to beat the Star Wars Threadless one as far as I’m concerned though! Where Happiness Comes From by Luis Diaz isn’t as colourful as you’d expect a unicorn to be, but it is one that entices you to read it.

Every now and again Threadless brings us an epic all over print that makes me squeal! Can’t get over the originality of Dance With Wolves by Peter Kramar it features little characters doing different dances with wolves, I want it! :)

There are so many cat t-shirts that I want on Threadless that it’s not even funny! Here is a brand spanking new one on the scene. If There’s a Rocket, Tie Me To It by Hana Bacasno and Janice Golosino has a very ‘Celestial Cat’ feel so it. It’s amazing, especially in the boat neck fit which I’d highly recommend to girlys who haven’t experienced them yet.

My aperture obsessed boyfriend would be all over this! You’re Dead by Kim Asuncion is an epic Aperture / Ninja crossover, I’m not one for black and white tees but I would absolutely wear this one!

Lastly but not leastly for this blog is Goldfish by Andy Gonsalves. I love the orange/red print against the black tee, the wee fishy looks like he has bags of character and has a bit of a retro feel. He reminds me a bit of the fish called Cleo from Disney’s Pinocchio.

Start as I meant to go on, here is my first Threadless blog of the year and it’s a sale one! Lots of fabulous tees to choose from and they aren’t even going to burn your wallet too much!

Firstly one of the epic Threadless Comic-on-Tees designs, this one is The Day The Saucers Came, Issue 4, Vol 6 by John Cassaday. The design is comiccy but it doesn’t over take the tee too much. These tees are normally $24 dollars so you’re getting an extra bargain getting one of these babies for $7.95! There is also currently availability in all sizes!

I have a thing about Night Sky tees and this one reeks of adorable, it’s also on Asphalt which is one of my Threadless faves. It’s has a deep and meaningful title, this is Discover Yourself by Lim Heng Swee (one of Threadless’ most notorious designers).  I do think this design could of been a smidge bigger, other than this it’s tee perfection.

Really like the originality of Color Founder by Cheok Siew Yen. This features a sweet little beaver turning trees into different coloured colouring pencils! What’s not to love. This is available across the board in mens sizes but very limited in girly fit. Boo.

It does appear that since Threadless updated their site that the search feature seems to be more effective, so that might be cool to check out if you’re looking for something specific. Next tee is one that is perfect for fans of Mario or nuclear explosions. It’s a couple of dollars more expensive but Power to the Mushroom by Budi Satria Kwan is probably one of the best brown tees I have seen on Threadless.

Next tee is a lovely bit of blue for this blog! Bit of colour! So Many Questions by Gabriel Pyle and Nathan W Pyle has lots of little pictures and plays on question words Who, What, Where, When, How.

Lastly for this blog is a tee that I have had in my basket many times but haven’t got round to buying! I love the purple so much and I don’t actually have a purple Threadless tee, there isn’t many colours that I don’t have now! This is Space and Time by Justin White. Amazing detail and an explosion of colour.
