giraffe red organic t-shirt by omunky

I always think that people look a bit sinister when they look you in the eye when their glasses are pushed down their nose, I don’t know what it is but I find it un-nerving. However, when a giraffe is doing it I feel a lot more comfortable, especially when that giraffe is printed onto an organic cotton t-shirt.

recycle t-shirt by print liberation

Philly’s finest are at it again, well, finest after Art In The Age, obviously, and this time, they’re saving the planet with a t-shirt that has a bike on it!

The cotton is 100% organic, and the ink is environmentally-friendly too, so you will be even more justified in feeling superior to people when you’re biking around town whilst they’re trying to mow you down in their cars.

organic mens t-shirt by Mongrel Clothing

Something that I’ve tried telling myself at the end of the two England games in the World Cup (and presumably at the end of the one we’re playing right now) is that no matter what happens, it doesn’t really make a difference to my life, I’m not betting on them, and I don’t know anyone playing, so in that respect, and it remains the same for much of the country, we’ll be okay even if the England team having to get an earlier flight home than they expected.

However, I’m not entirely okay with a £40 t-shirt, yes it is a great design, I’d love to wear it, and it’s printed on organic cotton, but £40 is still quite a lot more than I’m prepared to pay for a t-shirt nowadays.

Gulf oil spill charity t-shirt

Yup, brown stuff is still going from the sea floor to the surface, so buy this tee, from which 100% of the profit (no word on what that figure is) goes to the National Wildlife Federation to help with the clean-up. And it’s printed on an organic American Apparel t-shirt, so at least this tee isn’t contributing to more chemicals going into the water

Omunky organic monkey t-shirt

I’m not really feeling the multiple usage of the same monkey shape, I feel like the graphic might flow better with a few different monkeys, but the colourway is spot on and as ever I’m enjoying the use of negative space.

Omunky organic monkey t-shirt

This isn’t the latest tee available from OMUNKY, the organic tee company with a penchant for animal-based designs, but I like this design makes use of a lot of the ‘canvas’, I always find that there’s something nice about tees that have a print running along the lower hem of a shirt.

Positive Pollution by LaFraise

pollution eco t-shirt

Science is almost definitely going to work out something like this in the future. I’m not putting any upper limit on what I’m defining as ‘the future’, so if the fairly vague concept in this laFraise tee of something that removes pollution using a spraycan is realised at any point in the future… I totally called it.

I really wish that this design had a bigger product picture, because I get the feeling that it’s a really wearable design, but I just can’t see it properly. It’s organic, and it’s only available in medium.

SAVE THE WHALES SHIRT 1 Save The Whales by Yanmos at RedBubble

We don’t really know the story of what happened with the Shonan Maru No.2 and Sea Shepherd’s badass looking boat, the Ady Gil, well formerly badass since it’s in more than one piece now, so I’m going to post this without comment, but the fact that I’m posting it probably says enough.

 Worn Again: Windbreakers made from a Virgin hot air balloon

 

3852925880 4bb354985e Worn Again: Windbreakers made from a Virgin hot air balloon

 

3855092341 4268d0d8de Worn Again: Windbreakers made from a Virgin hot air balloon


First off, Worn Again is a damn good name for a company making clothing out of Virgin hot air balloons, admittedly they’re in something of a niche, you can probably count the amount of companies doing that on one hand finger, but they got there first and they probably got the best name, though of course virginity-pun-based business named are very much welcomed, encouraged even, in the comments.

They aren’t particularly cheap (especially for second-hand fabric!), but they look good and you can’t deny that the idea is very cool.

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109 480x445 109 I love NY style t shirts for you to love

After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

Feel by Blend Apparel [hands-on review]

by Andy on December 12, 2009

PICT2452 480x360 Feel by Blend Apparel [hands on review]

As ever, I’m behind on the reviews, but this is a great tee to review, because despite it’s fairly simple appearance, it’s actually really interesting.

You probably recognise the print as being braille, we all recognise those dots, but if you’re anything like me you probably don’t read braille, so you’re just going to have to believe me when I say the text reads “feel” (just as I’m believing Blend Apparel when they tell me that). So that’s a pretty funny visual pun, though the ladies may want to be careful with the perceived invitations it offers, and of course I’d presume that actual blind people would love it.

The print is raised up off the tee too, so it is obviously a pretty thick print so that you can get that effect, but with the dots being not too huge it doesn’t make it feel weird like you’re wearing it, if there was a large black of print this thick it would probably feel like the tee was bullet-proof but you can’t really tell the difference from a regular thin print in this case. I’m just specualting here but is it also possible that a really thick print will stand the test of time better than a thin one, or does it actually make it more likely that you’ll accidentally rip off one of the dots?

PICT2451 480x360 Feel by Blend Apparel [hands on review]

The tee is no regular shirt either, as it’s made from bamboo. From what I’ve read bamboo is a much more environmentally friendly way of producing clothing, in fact everything I’ve heard about bamboo makes me wonder why it isn’t used more, anything that can be used as a construction material, food, and clothing, seems crazy to me. So, it’s delicious, but how does it wear? Well, I like it, bamboo t-shirts in general are extremely soft and this version from Blend is no exception. The fit is a little snug, but bamboo tees seem to stretch rather more favourably than a cotton tee, though that may be because bamboo tees usually have less print on them. On that subject, and this is where my lack of technical knowledge comes in, is it harder to print onto a bamboo t-shirt and that’s why bamboo prints tend to be fairly simple?

I’ve always heard that bamboo tees are anti-bacterial, and whilst I can’t think of a way to test that, there’s no reason for me not to believe the claim. I’m not really sure how it would benefit you but I assume it’s no bad thing, perhaps it stops the tee from smelling when you’ve got a bit sweaty, and combined with the comfiness of the tee this could be a great tee for going to the gym in.

Cool organic tees for £10 at Linework

by Andy on November 12, 2009

5531 1181578894680 1084420091 544203 6248965 n 479x318 Cool organic tees for £10 at Linework

An organic tee in the UK for £10 is pretty rare, but for that tee to also have a cool print on it at that price is even rarer. I suppose that at this price it even makes it possible for Americans to join the Linework party and not feel as they’re being slapped about the face with their wallets.

Last time I took a look at Linework I took issue with the lack of large pictures so that you could really chedck out all the effort that went into making the tees and show off the designs. I’m glad to say that Linework have sorted that out and cleaned up the navigation of the site to make it a lot more enjoyable to browse through.

Burn It All Down 1257274287502 480x181 Organic tees for less than $10, the upside of District Cotton closing down

It’s always unfortunate when a company decides to shut it’s doors and stop selling tees, but in this case as District Cotton closes, Brett, the guy behind DC, is keeping in the tee business with a brand called Good Tee that will be providing socially responsible t-shirt printing. Of course, with District Cotton closing down, they’ve got some stock that needs to be disposed of, which means organic tees for less than $10, and a few of the tees are $5, so expect them to be snapped up fast!

Munky Tree Organic Tee by Omunky

Usually I’d rag on a tee for having a square border to the print as this tee from new, eco-friendly label OMUNKY, but in this case I think it gives more of an ‘art on a tee’ look to it, and kudos on the use of negative space.

Say Hello To Amon Clothing

by Andy on October 16, 2009

Fold Unfold (Get In Shape Edition) from dominicnagel on Vimeo.

I don’t know if any epileptics read Hide Your Arms, but please be warned that there is a small amount of strobing in the video above.

Amon Clothing are a new label from Germany, and if you look at the designs in the gallery or watch the video above, you’ll probably think, “yep, they have the look of a German label.” It’s quite strange how you can sometimes just look at a shirt company and be able to tell where they came from based on their designs, but I think that German companies especially have a distinctive tee style that helps differentiate them from the crowd. In this instance, unusual typographic treatments with strange imagery.

Aside from having cool looking shirts (which are about €28 each), the tees are made of organic cotton and printed using sustainable energy. I’ve still not made a decision about if there are real benefits to organic cotton, but sustainable energy sources are obviously a good thing.
