As a sandwich fan I like to do research on sandwiches. I liked learning that during World War I, Emma Curtis published a recipe booklet for her Snowflake Marshmallow Creme which consisted of peanut butter and Marshmallow Creme on oat or barley bread calling it the Liberty Sandwich. The Liberty Sandwich may have been the beginning of the Fluffernutter sandwich.

I was also able to work with one of my favorite artists who is from Boston- Regan Smith Clarke to work on this Massachusetts Sandwich.

The shirt is available in SeaFoam or Grey

Andy: Very nicely put together design, and I like it even if we don’t have fluffernutters over here in the UK.

30squared is the latest project from the man behind cult Tumblr page Jim’ll Paint It. Jim has been turning his unabashed love of all things Microsoft Paint to the world of pixel art. Adding as much detail with as few pixels as possible, he has recreated a myriad of characters from cult TV, film, video games and history.

With 8-bit interpretations of Goldeneye 64’s Oddjob, Predator’s Dillon (complete with severed arm), Vladimiri Lenin and even ‘Stabbim’ the scutter from Red Dwarf, no corner of the geekosphere is deemed too obscure. Requests can be made via Facebook or email.

Each collection of characters is presented on a premium white cotton T-shirt for maximum impact.

Andy: “Jim’ll Paint It”? I’m guessing that name is a bit of a tough sell these days! I really like the designs though, I’m such a sucker for pixel designs.

Tic Tac Toe Tees are t-shirts you can play. They are great conversation openers and icebreakers, and are sure to make you the attention magnet at a party. The t-shirts are raising funds on Kickstarter, and you can pre-order your very own t-shirt you can play for $35.

Tic Tac Toe Tees are washable and wearable just like regular t-shirts. The front features a contrast grid and lightweight space-age velcro that the pieces attach to. No-tech wearable mobile gaming! Each t-shirt comes with pieces in a nifty little pouch, with spare ones in case you lose any.

The campaign is just one week in and half funded already.

Andy: Whilst I have no real problem with it, it seems like too much of a whacky, quirky novelty for me to ever wear a shirt like this, and I get the feeling that it’s the kind of thing you’d wear once or twice and then not again. Perhaps I’m just not fun anymore. Also, I might be wrong, but I am fairly sure that I’ve seen something like this before.

Indianapolis Photographer Launches First Lifestyle and Street Wear Brand of Apparel for Photographers.

Indianapolis, IN (February 9th, 2015) – CLICKGEARCLOTHING ltd is happy to announce the launch collection of the first lifestyle apparel and clothing brand for photographers created by photographers.

Photographers around the world now have access to the highest quality lifestyle and street apparel. With its official launch on Valentine’s day (2-14-2015) CLICKGEARCLOTHING will be offering T-shirts, hoodies, Hats, and Beanies in its initial collection.

Founded by photographer Michael Anthony, CLICKGEARCLOTHING ltd is the first and only apparel brand with what photographers wear in mind.

“After years of searching for a great photography shirt to wear I kept coming up short of anything that I would ever consider quality. As photographers, many of us photograph hundreds of brands of clothing every year and until now we have never had an option for quality apparel for ourselves. Dead are the days of “I flash people” and boring gimmicky shirts.” Says Anthony

Customers will have access to the initial launch collection at www.CLICKGEARCLOTHING.com and be able to sign up for special offers, early releases, and special edition clothing. Some photographers may even become sponsored by CLICKGEARCLOTHING ltd.

With photographers in mind behind everything that CLICKGEARCLOTHING ltd creates, customers will have access to an expanding product line including dresses, shorts, swimwear, and sunglasses in the near future.

Andy: As someone that is a photographer, owns a photography related business and also really likes t-shirts, this intrigued me. I am seeing a lot of hearts but I must admit I’m not really getting the idea behind it and I can’t see it explained anywhere on the site, so that could do with being made clearer. It’s not a big deal, but there are other clothing companies out there based on photography, and cool ones too (not the cringe-inducing gimmick shirts they mention). I don’t want to be too negative, there are plenty of things to like here, I just don’t think that their photography angle is coming across enough on the public side of things.

Elepprint T-Shirts

by Andy on February 13, 2015



Elepprint” that focuses on casual wear for young minorities in America.

As a young minority growing up in America, I felt embarrassed wearing traditional outfits around because they were too exotic, so I searched for contemporary apparels with any essence of a cultural identifier, but unfortunately, there weren’t any. So “elepprint” was born! Like other branded apparels such as Abercrombie and Fitch, Locoste, etc…my logo is made up of an Elephant and Swirl embroidery at the left chest. The Elephant represents royalty, strength, power, and much more in Asia, Africa, Europe, and even in the Americas. The swirl is a design from textiles created by the tribal ethnic Hmong minorities from Southeast Asia. The swirl represents an elephant’s foot stomp, which Hmong ancestors followed to the water source. I believe color is a powerful way to radiate optimism and positivity, so our t-shirts comes in many colors such as Black, White, Blue, Red, Green, Pink, and other colors upon request. We hope to expand to polos, sweaters, hoodies, caps, pants, and so much more in the future.

Andy: My initial thought with this was that the print was a little small and subtle, but reading the description now it does make a bit more sense to me. Just because I am who I am it would be nice to see them explore some slightly different designs so that all their eggs aren’t in one basket.

The inspiration for “The Freedom Effect” project begins in Humboldt Park, Chicago in 2011 when we wanted to initiate a scholarship fund for excelling undocumented High School students in our neighborhood seeking a career in the Creative Arts.

Our logo, which features as the design on the maiden release of Freedom Effect t-shirts, was inspired by the aesthetics of the sugar skulls created in Mexico for the “Dia de los Muertos” celebration. It showcases a decorated skull wearing a gas mask as a means of survival. A reminder that we can’t revive what is already dead, but must cherish what is alive—giving it the “free-est” of reins.

Andy: Thanks for the submission!

Andy: Usually I don’t like it when a company rely too much on their logo, it’s something that can really hold some brands back because it often requires you to have a personal connection to the brand creating a barrier to entry for people like me that don’t know them and don’t have any need to support them. However, this is a good looking logo that I think anyone could enjoy without knowing anything about the brand, which is certainly a positive for them moving forward.

New “Love & Hate” T shirt remix

by Andy on February 12, 2015



Once upon a time there was a T shirt design called Love and Hate. The designer loved this design and it was his favourite for a long, long time. He loved it so much he made a limited edition art print much bigger and more elaborate than the original T shirt design. The T shirt was very popular and the print was received well by all who witnessed it. Eventually over time, all but one of the prints sold out, but the T shirt was still very popular.

Times changed, new T shirt designs came and went and Love & Hate was still selling, but, something was not quite right. Although still admired, the Tee design was much smaller than the new younger, fresher designs and lacked their impact. To make way for new T shirts in the store the designer had moved it to the lower shelves. The more new Tees arrived, the less space was made for it. Eventually, the T shirt was hardly ever seen and it began to feel neglected and lonely. The newer designs laughed at it because it was not getting as much attention as they were.

“You used to be one of the designers’ favourites, but not any more!” They mocked.

The last of the limited edition prints that was hanging on the wall opposite felt sorry for it’s smaller, neglected cousin and so asked the designer if he could update the design and make it as big as all the other T shirt designs he was creating.

“You said that I was a very personal design and meant a great deal!”, the print shouted.

After thinking about it for a while the designer agreed. “I’ll make it a big as you!” he exclaimed to the print, “and I’ll give it a completely different background than yours so you’ll still be unique! How’s that?” He added.

The limited edition print was happy.

Sustainable hemp shirts are becoming a new trend. Hemp House Clothing takes it a step further by wrapping their shirts in sustainable packaging. Each shirt is hand rolled & hand tied with hemp string. This unique shirt was designed by belindajacksonart.com & provides a interesting visual to compliment the interesting fabric.

Andy: Looks good, probably feels good, and it’s not destroying the planet!

Hola Andy! We want people to find something new each time they look at our shirts. We also like to right little stories about each one. For ‘the Waiter’, “When the customer visited Guilano’s Italian restaurant she was surprised to learn that the waiter had been experimenting with genetically modified spaghetti.” Enjoy!

www.inkainka.co.uk

Andy: These guys have some really interesting designs, and for a change I actually like the way that they have managed to incorporate their name into the shirts without it looking like it was a slapped on afterthought to bring more recognition to the brand. Don’t forget to use the coupon code LAUNCH for free shipping in the UK!

Hello all,

We have this hoody releasing on Feb. 16th in a finite quantity, there will be 10 pieces made per size, and won’t be reproduced. Printed on 10 oz. 100% baby butt soft cotton. The name of this piece is ‘Bullshit Baffles the Brains’. It features a juxtaposition of traditional and modern design with sacred geometry, black letter with braille with many tiny details throughout. It represents the distraction of modern day society and media with all the “bullshit” baffling our brains. We want this to be a reminder for all to filter what we consume mentally. We are constantly being sold to as consumers and are constantly selling as commodities ourselves.

All of our clothing has a meaning behind the designs and you can check out what each one stands for on the product pages.
You can read more about our company/mindset here: http://www.twentysixcollection.com/pages/story.html

We wanted to offer a 20% + FREE SHIPPING Promo Code for the HideYourArms readers. Insert “HYATWENTY” at the checkout and enjoy.

Kickstarter to launch a tshirt showcase book.

by Andy on February 6, 2015



A beautiful book showcasing the talented designers working in the daily/limited tshirt world.

There is a mysterious world – a world where tshirts appear and disappear every 24 hours.The world of the limited shirt sites. From Sherlock to Star Wars via Mario, Hannibal, Ghibli and Dr Who. Every type of fandom, geekery, trend, style and coolness is covered.

Who creates these amazing designs? The VigilanTees – artists and sites that are doing it themselves. They’re taking on the ordinary, the boring, the dull. They have the skills to make incredible tshirts. They come from all over the world, working in a range of styles and influences.

I want to create a 180 plus page high quality paper back book that revels in the artwork created by the talented designers – the VigilanTees. There is so much incredible work being produced and shared that it makes sense to view this output in a different medium.

Each designer featured will be interviewed, pick their favourite designs and show off some of their fans. I hope to give a real insight into the world of these designers – what inspires them? How did they become tshirt designers? How do they come up with their ideas?

I’m also going to include interviews and features on the websites that feature these designs. Want to know how these companies got started? What they want to achieve? This is the book for you.

Andy: I heard about this book a while back and I really like the idea, and I’ll certainly be backing it. Sitting at about 10% of the way to it’s £17,000 goal on Kickstarter at the moment with plenty of time left, hopefully with all the people involved they’ll be able to hit the target soon.

THIS IS A PRE-ORDER! THE PRE-ORDER WILL RUN THROUGH THE WEEKEND ONLY (ENDS AFTER FEB 8TH)! THIS SPECIFIC PRE-ORDER WILL SHIP IN 4 WEEKS.

Well, well, well! New England has gone and done it again. Boston’s sports teams are no slouches, and we take great pride when they bring a championship home. Our treasured mascot Big Kid couldn’t help but pad up in celebration!

This Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt will be printed on a heather grey t-shirt.
Guys Tee: 100% Cotton
Girls Tee: 60% Cotton / 40% Polyester

Andy: I’m not even a Pats fan (in theory I’m an Eagles fan but I have no real reason for it) and even I kinda want to buy this.
