Bones Clothing – Review

by DeeHYA on September 16, 2015


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

You can also view their designs on their site :, 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.


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!

Seed of Life [SoL] – Double Review

by Ben_P on September 6, 2015

Jen and I had another opportunity to do a double review of Seed of Life – or SoL for ease – they’re an Israeli brand that appear to have been going strong for 5 years now, specialising in screen printed psychedelic clothing and accessories, for both men and women.

‘The art of S.O.L is influenced by mystical and spiritual experiences that have nurtured awareness and consciousness. These images evoke a message of a peaceful mind and a creative spirit, a message that unites us regardless of religion or culture.’

Off the bat I definitely like what they’re trying to convey, while I don’t think I personally am their target audience I can definitely appreciate the tranquility and spirituality behind it. 

We were pleased to receive a men’s t-shirt and a women’s vest and they came together nicely packaged with a free screen printed tote bag which was a pretty nice addition. I liked the tote bag so much and it perfectly fit my laptop in it so unfortunately it’s had a bit of wear and tear from being in my rucksack a large portion of the time.

Jen will obviously be reviewing the female side of things – as I’m sure it comes as no shock to any of you that I don’t have the slightest clue about women’s fashion or clothes.Design 1

I received the Peyote T-Shirt which you can purchase in 4 different colours – the amount of choice surprised me if I’m honest! Peyote for those that do not know is a psychoactive cactus so it’s quite cool for their shirts to have fitting names for the designs.

The feel of the shirt is fantastic – it’s 100% cotton, is soft and smooth on the skin and is lightweight but equally feels very durable and it’s all locally sourced and produced which I think is awesome; it’s safe to say that this is a good quality shirt. A low quality, uncomfortable feeling shirt is easy to identify but not having any irritation or even really knowing that the shirt is on you is a true testament to it’s quality – they’ve definitely nailed this down well. 

Peyote T-Shirt

I will admit that this design isn’t something that I would really go for, however I have received compliments on this design when wearing it and I can really appreciate the effort that goes into creating something so intricate – let alone screen printing it! I don’t even really know where to begin with trying to describe what I feel from the design. I do really like it but it’s just not something I would commonly wear – it makes me think of a dream catcher, or a mind map/thought processes and all sorts of imaginative things. That’s the real beauty of this in that it’s so open to interpretation and I can see how this definitely fits in with their ideologies. 

The design is screen printed both front and back, and has a slightly odd feel on the t-shirt because of the intricacy of the design. Running your hands over the design you can feel the individual screen printed dots. It also touts that it has UV Reactive Colours however I haven’t been in an area where I can actually see this – so I would definitely be quite interested to see how it looks. Perhaps having an example (if possible?) on the website would entice customers a little bit more. It’s definitely made me more curious and I’ll have to make sure I wear it the next time I go out anywhere that may have UV light!

We’ll move onto the female portion of the review now conducted by Jen.

As Ben said, I also got a top called the Uhloo Top.

The fabric was really soft and had a lovely handfeel but this is due to the amount of elastane that is clearly in the composition of the jersey, as you can unfortunately see via the shine on the tops. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t put people off as I feel the softness outweighs this aspect.

Uhloo Top

I like the rawness of the edges that have been tightly overlocked, but the brand should be aware that this may cause stretching. This is what happened on the hem of my top and therefore it started to curl up slightly. Some may say this is adds to the uniqueness but I feel differently. Perhaps a normal hem would be better – but I understand this may cause a cost implication if using different stitch techniques.

The print quality is good and almost mimics the technique used by American pop artist Lichtenstein, with dots creating the image – although a much simpler version, which I feel is quite fresh and interesting to see.

Design 2

The print image I was sent was the owl, personally I do not like it as it is not to my taste unfortunately and feel it is somewhat lost on the purple ground, however love the fact that most tops have a print on the front as well as the back much the same as Ben’s top.

The brand offer lots of other top designs that are simpler such as (coincidentally) the Peyote Top  and perhaps more the sort of item that I would go for, but definitely there is enough choice for everyone.

Overall a good product and I would definitely like to see more from them in the future.






The Heathens 79 – Mega Review

by Ben_P on July 30, 2015

Fair warning. This review is pretty gigantic in comparison to most we do! Buckle up.

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing an up and coming brand called The Heathens Star 79 , this was quite a good opportunity for a whole brand review as we got sent 3 X Mens T-shirts and 3 X Women’s T-Shirts, so it has been a pretty thorough review.

Obviously I’m not a lady so I can’t really comment on the fits and the styles and the general feel of the product so it was a good opportunity to get a new HYA writer to weigh in, so this review will be split into two sections the other section being handled by Jen.

So one thing I want to get clear straight away is that I like this brand and getting to know the main man behind it has been fun as well, it’s all homegrown – he has experience in the industry but all of this is done off his own back in his place, there is something super satisfying about chatting to someone who prints their own shirts, get’s their own shirts made and just wants to be involved in every step of the process along the way – to me it adds a little something extra to the shirt when you know the effort that has gone into it. That said overall there are some brilliant points to what he’s accomplished and also definitely some areas he can improve on or things that are not quite to my taste. 

When I received the package from The Heathens I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself ever so slightly – it was exactly how I imagined packaging up my products if I were ever to create a brand. They were packaged in a simple brown paper with string tied round and a wax seal. It. Was. Awesome. This is definitely a nice addition to any brand but obviously doesn’t mean what you receive is a great product. Just these little things that I enjoy and really does add to the professionalism of a brand and keeps it nice and consistent. Like I always say though these things aren’t essential to a brand but they add to the whole experience.


So the shirts are custom printed (i.e. not Gildan not American Apparel) which is quite surprising for a relatively new brand. They are quite a thin shirt which personally I enjoy but this could effect the longevity of the garment, but for those who love a light weight shirt it is very comfortable. The shirts themselves also have a seam down the back which I’d never encountered before – I assumed it might have been a cost cutting exercise but when asking he thought it added a bit of character to the shirt. I’m inclined to agree that it is definitely unique but I found it slightly irritating initially but once on for a few minutes I soon forgot it was there. Just a little note that the female t-shirts don’t have this feature.

It was a bit of a mixed bag for me personally with the designs. I’ll start off with my least favourite which was the ‘Dog Villain’ I want to like this design, and it does certainly look cool, but the choice of having it quite faded out and especially on a white garment isn’t the best way to really show off the design, I think it’s a combination of quite a subtle design on a colour of shirt I don’t usually wear (if you were to look in my wardrobe very little of my clothes are white). This isn’t to say that the design is bad, it’s just not my taste and it almost comes across as drawn on to the t-shirt. Each to his own though, some of you out there may love it!

Dog Villain

‘Star Suicide’ is my next favourite, it’s bold, its big and it stands out thats for sure. This is how I like white t-shirts to be. I wouldn’t usually go for this sort of style but I can definitely see that this will appeal to people out there and the fade does look really good. I feel that part of the reason this isn’t my favourite is I’m probably not cool enough to be rocking this shirt!

Star Suicide

‘Line Drop’ my personal favourite, I really really like this one. It’s simplicity is awesome, I love the fade and the subtle Heathens typography behind the lines. One thing I will mention as a slightly negative is that using names in relatively new brands is somewhat off putting I feel for people purchasing their t-shirts if its too in your face as they won’t have an established fan base – however I think with these ones it has fitted in quite well to not be too overbearing from the style of the shirt. I’ve found myself wearing this one quite a lot actually so I can definitely say I’ve got a few white shirts I enjoy wearing now!

Line Drop

Now we’ll pass over to Jen on her first post as she reviews the ladies side of the review!

I am very pleased to be writing my first post, especially for The Heathens 79 as I really like the tees they offer.

What I tend to look for in tshirts is the quality of the print itself – whether it is stiff due to the dye or technique used, and whether it grins. I also look at positioning of the prints, as well as the handfeel, colouration and quality of the fabric used in the tshirts themselves. I was given three of the women’s options, two of which I love and the other isn’t really my taste but obviously that’s just personal opinion. The fabric is of good quality but not the softest or heaviest jersey.

There is nice detailing on each tshirt with back neck binding and shaped sleeves. The logo is printed in the back neck also which is a nice touch and shows the branding. One negative would be that in one of the tshirts this was not lined up in the centre like the others – perhaps this was a small error on this particular sample but I’d hope a larger number sold on the website are like this as it shows inconsistency.

The labels used are awesome – a real point of difference. I love the unique-ness of the message. I can certainly say myself and Ben did drink whilst in the tees, but I have no comment on whether anything else occurred! What I will say is that I’d hope these labels change from paper to card if the brand get bigger.



The ‘Feather Cross’ would be my personal favourite as the print is quite commercial following the cross trend on the high street a few years ago. This may put some people off, however working in fashion, I believe it is a great piece to have featured in the collection. The print is quite thin therefore the handfeel is soft – an aspect I prefer. However, due to this it does slightly grin but unfortunately probably unavoidable. The detail in the feathers are good and the positioning on the body is perfect.

Feather Cross


The ‘Rose N Bones’ is a nice design too with added colour, but I would have liked the position of the rose more symmetrical with the cross bones. Again, the print allows the fabric to remain soft and flexible.

Rose & Bones

My least favourite is the ‘Heathens Star’ tee purely for the fact the print is shiny and has a stiffer handfeel than the others this is partly due to a rubber ink used in the name. There seems to have been 2 screens on this one too however the branding and the background are both black so you can’t make out the name easily. Personally, I would not buy this as I don’t like the design –it’s too masculine. 

Heathen Star

I would definitely consider buying the other 2 though, perhaps even more so if they were in long sleeved or vest shapes. The Heathens Star 79 are definitely worth a visit.

Bergies Sock Review!

by Ben_P on April 1, 2015

‘At Bergies™ we are determined to bring you the most awesome options from across the globe in socks, slippers and other really cool stuff. From socks with cats (we LOVE cats), to items for those with sensitive feet, to the Worlds Softest slippers – we’ve got something for everyone!’

So I’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing a whole treasure trove of socks that were delivered by Bergies who class themselves as some what of a Sockurator. A self proclaimed, might I add amazing, title that is hard to deny. They quite literally may be the holy grail of socks. They stock a whopping 21 different branded socks. If I’m quite honest I didn’t even think there would be that many brands out there! They also have a few products of their own creation geared mainly towards keeping little ones feet nice and snug. IMG_1657


Now I’m somewhat of a fussy sock buyer, so not all of the socks that I received were quite to my liking. You’ll more likely find me bare foot than wearing socks, however that’s not to say that any of these socks are bad, but not quite to my fussy foot requirements as you will read. The one great thing about socks I find though is the fact you can pretty much get away with wearing what ever the hell you like, and it leaves a great deal of creativity for sock manufacturers. Most people don’t really care what they put on their feet so you can be as outlandish as you like, which is awesome. Bergies really have a wide curated selection of socks to satisfy any persons sock desires.


Burger Socks

I love the design of this one, it’s simplistic and comical at the same time. It definitely however is a design that’s well suited for socks, if it was anything else but socks I really don’t think I’d wear it. I most certainly wouldn’t go around wearing a burger t-shirt that’s for sure! The socks themselves are comfortable enough, not the most comfortable out of all of them. They feel slightly restricting on my feet. I’m a size 10 UK which is roughly 10.5 in US so I fit nicely in the middle of the one size range for these socks, I however would chalk this down to personal preference as I’m not a huge fan of a tighter fit for socks, which these definitely fall into the category of ever so slightly. Perhaps having various sizes of socks would improve this as trying to create a one size fits all sock for sizes 7-13 is probably a difficult feat! All of this said once I get over the initial tightness of the sock I can comfortably wear these for a day with no problems.


Gangsta Socks

I was surprised to find that these were my favourite socks. I don’t know whether it’s the hipster-esque irony of wearing something that says gangsta on my feet hilarious or just the fact that these socks are probably the most comfortable out of all of the socks I received. The design is simple, it literally just says gangsta down the side of the sock. I can’t really say it’s the most amazing design out there but it makes me chuckle and I have a good laugh wearing them. Surprisingly as well, they’re fantastic for running, it must be to do with the cushioned soles to the them but I’ve worn them a few times while running now and they’re probably my go to sock for that activity now. Again it’s a 1 size fits all sock design and this time round it fits me perfectly and doesn’t feel a restrictive as the Burger Socks. I’d definitely be happy with purchasing these ones myself.


Disrupted Stripe

The design of this sock would surely be welcome in any persons wardrobe, probably the most ‘normal’ sock out of the bunch that would be unlikely to get you any odd stares, unlike perhaps burgers on your feet! If you’re looking for a nice well designed sock this one is probably for you. I was expecting it to be quite uncomfortable to be honest, it looked like it was very small for my feet. I was pleasantly surprised that it just about fit quite well, it’s slightly snug but when I was walking around and doing my general day to day things it didn’t feel uncomfortable. However when I think about the sock on my foot it is just a tad too tight. I have to pull out the end of the sock ever so slightly making the heel not match up quite perfectly, however I can’t really fault them for this. As you can imagine I’m a bit of a fussy sock wearer so take my criticisms with a pinch of salt, I could wear this sock for the day and get on perfectly well with it but I think I could do with it for my own personal preference to be slightly larger.


Mohawk (Mr T!)

I’ll start off by saying. I love this design, it’s awesome. I mean what isn’t to like? For a design it is my favourite because it’s just hilarious however, as a sock it’s not so good. The sock doesn’t really have any shape to it, they came flat, most socks will change direction at the heel. These lie perfectly flat ton the ground, the actual formation of the sock is very uncomfortable and just seems like two pieces of fabric that have been sewn round the edges so your toes uncomfortably hit seam right at the end of the sock opposed to being on top of your toes. The design as well suffers from the construction of the sock, because it is a one size fits all the image distorts and has bad ‘grinning’ when actually worn, which makes the actual design on the sock a tad to make out. I really wish I could have given these socks a better review but to me they’re more of a jokey gimmick sock to give someone than an actual functioning one. I think you could maybe get away with wearing this sock as more of an in-house slipper alternative but for day-to-day wear I found it rather annoying unfortunately.


Great Waves

Great Waves Smaller Sock

When trying out these socks it took me a little while to get used to them, annoyingly you can’t really just pull the socks on you have to work them slowly up the foot which was quite infuriating. I found that one of the socks in particular had a point where you pulled the sock up to and it got caught on your heel, there were a couple of threads going across the heel line (presumably to keep the heel shape) that just felt like it would tear a hole in the sock. Perhaps this is a slight manufacturing fault on this particular sock because the other one wasn’t as irritating to pull on – although it still was a bit problematic. Once I had the sock on it was very comfortable and felt lovely on my foot, they weren’t overly tight which was a bonus for me. The design is nice, I can’t really give them much credit for it because it obviously isn’t an original design – however if you fancy a bit of wearable art for your feet it is very cool. I was a bit confused on their website initially as they had two of the same design. I spoke to the guys over at Bergies and the manufacturer actually charges a slightly higher price for the bigger sock due to the extra fabric used. It’s also got a slight different composition, but it’s very marginal so I’m not sure whether that would contribute to the price change. Luckily it isn’t too steep it’s about $3 difference but it may be a bit off putting for some. Personally I think it is a bit daft to have different sizes of socks being priced differently for the exact same design, but I’m not holding that against Bergies but more at the manufacturer.


Shark Attack

These are probably tied for my favourite alongside the gangsta socks. They’re a fantastic all round sock, comfortable, ease to put on, awesome design that I really like and I really don’t have any problems with them at all. I’ve worn them the most out of all of the socks and they’re just a perfect fit for me! I’m honestly at words as to what to say really regarding them because I can’t think of anything negative to say.

Overall I really like what Bergies are doing, I must admit though I’m a bit of a cheap skate when it comes to socks and usually just buy what ever is on offer, but these are a really nice collection to my socks now and it is fun to wear socks with awesome designs on! If you’re in the market for some new socks definitely check them out. 




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!


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.


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 :)


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!


Well, August and a bit of September, as the coupon code AUG14-9sf882fs will get you 20% off at 80s Tees until September 5th, perfect if you’re on the hunt for a nostalgia shirt.


Project NY – Summer 2014

by Umang on August 1, 2014

I had the pleasure of attending this year’s Project New York show (July 20-22, 2014) at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. As expected the show was professionally organized and there was a good handful of professional tshirt labels flashing their wares. The show attracts buyers and press, so if you are serious about getting your label on the rack of a fine establishment, check out the organizer’s website.

The following labels are in no particular order:

1. Brand: MNKR

Home: Los Angeles, CA

IMG_20140720_125228MNKR is producing a large array of bold graphic tshirts spanning various themes.

Monetary Damage: $28-30


2. Brand: PalmerCash

Home: Idaho (not kidding, no offence Idaho)


PalmerCash’s line covers all kinds of genres, such as NASA, cities, states, beer and other random things.

Monetary Damage: $28


3. Brand: Choke Shirt Company

Home: Seattle, WA

IMG_20140720_125944Choke Shirt Company’s graphics span various themes so chances are, you will find something that’s for you.

Monetary Damage: $26


4. Brand: Solid Threads

Home: Hoboken, NJ



You know those tshirt labels that sell all kinds “fun” graphics on a tshirt? The ones that print their stuff on Hanes Beefy Tees with a low price point? Well this is one of those labels but to my pleasant surprise, they are printing them on good quality tshirts which probably attributes to the cost.

Monetary Damage: $23.95


5. Brand: Bakline

Home: Brooklyn, NY



For the love of all things Rugby. Bakline, strives to create solid designs with one theme in mind.

Monetary Damage: $23-32


6. Brand: Infinite Society

Home: New York, NY



One of the few Urban themed brands at the show, Infinite Society stood out among the other labels. All of their shirts are printed on either black or white tshirts which is usually a hard sale. Keep an eye out for their upcoming designs which are line art drawings of things, New York.

Monetary Damage: $25


7. Brand: Father Panik Industries

Home: Brooklyn, NY



If you are tired of “Brooklyn Industries” and want a fresh “Brooklyn” or NYC themed look, give Father Panik Industries a glance.

Monetary Damage: $32-34


8. Brand: Sharp Shirter

Home: Washington DC



Sharp Shirter really like their animals in a fantasy setting. If your looking for artsy and odd give their site a look.

Monetary Damage: $24


9. Brand: Vardagen

Home: St. Fishers, IN (yup Indiana)



Vardagen isn’t shy to produce various graphic themes to fill your closet.

Monetary Damage: $26-34


10. Brand: Quarter Water

Home: New York, NY



Quarter Water albeit not really my style, stood out among the other labels at the show. They are taking New York City urban and giving it an MIA (rapper) flavor. Is there such a thing as Bodega Chic?

Monetary Damage: $60-65 (not really Bodega prices)


It was certainly interesting to meet all these tee makers and chat about their labels, face to face. Most were enthusiastic about their product and full of stories about the trials and tribulations of getting a tshirt brand off the ground. Marketing was the key topic with the chatty vendors. After being in the biz, it was easy to extract the newbies from the veterans. The veterans were less enthused to share their stories vs. the newbies who displayed excitement.

I had inquired if the vendors had participated in Project New York before and most replied that this was there first endeavor. Some vendors had participated in the Magic Las Vegas show and stated that the Magic Las Vegas (same organizers) show was five times the size of this event. If you have the funding and want to be a vendor, you may want to try Las Vegas first.

The overall graphic themes were diverse but it appears that owls, moustaches and dinosaur themes of the past have been replaced with NASA, elephants and bold font t-shirts as they were plentiful. If you are thinking about starting a t-shirt line, you may want to avoid these themes and think about the next big thing.

Use coupon code 04JUL2014 to get 15% off anything and everything at RedBubble for Independence Day. Sale runs from now until Sunday. Anyone else think it’s funny they have an image on their site saying find your favourite new tee and the guy is wearing a tank top? Almost as silly as calling a t-shirt site Hide Your Arms…


What was new at BustedTees last week?

by Andy on January 13, 2014

I don’t understand some of these and I can live with that.



Cool French brand OLOW teamed up with a muralist from Nantes called Pedro Richardo to create a mural, a silkscreen poster, and a tee and I think it’s fair to say that they nailed it on all three counts. Obviously, the mural isn’t for sale, but you can get the print for €30 or the shirt for €35 in the OLOW shop.


Review: Propaganda Clothing Company

by Carlos J. Morales on November 5, 2013

The beauty of the t-shirt culture is that it is constantly inspiring individuals to create something unique and personal to them. If the designs themselves are wearable stories then designers/brand owners are the authors. When I received the email from Propaganda Clothing Company, I was excited to dive in and see what their story was.

Propaganda Clothing Company is a brand based out of Orlando, Florida, but their dark theme is far from Disney World inspired. They use a blunt motto that states “art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth” and are strongly against “attaching a nonsensical graphic to a t-shirt”. After reading their mission statement, I was prepared to open the package – to my surprise it contained two shirts. Before analyzing the two designs, I noticed both shirts were tagless and had their logo printed. This is one the best ways a brand can promote their identity without going over the top, so I thought it was a nice touch.


As far as the designs go, I will admit I was a bit caught off guard at first. The T800 A.D. Robot Jesus was a bit out there, but like I said earlier the author is always entitled to write his story. Who knows this shirt may cater to the religious terminator fan in you?


From a design perspective, I thought printing on a black t-shirt was a smart choice as it allowed the colors to pop. However, I did think the design was a bit busy for everyday usage. It would be interesting to see robot Jesus (yes, you read correctly) in greyscale with the left eye shining red. Overall, I thought it was an unique design, but maybe a bit too messy to put on a shirt, it would look cleaner on a poster.

Exclusive: Expose Your Arms Review


I am not much of tanktop guy and Hide Your Arms normally only review t-shirts, but since the owners were nice enough to send me one… I will review it! This design, Norma Jean, was a bit more conservative and it helped tremendously. Unlike the first design, this tank features a cleaner look using the likeness of Marilyn Monroe. While designs like these are not the most original, they are a great way for people to notice your brand. In this regard, this design was an intelligent move on their part; the soft shades of gray intertwining with the black and white makes it stylistically pleasant.


Overall, I think Propaganda Clothing Company has a lot to figure out and I mean this in a good way. For a start up brand, they have a catalog of designs and the quality of material they print on is comfortable. However, the two designs featured do not really sit well next to each other. In other words, it looks and feels as if they belong to different brands. Propaganda Clothing Company is a new brand with an unique take on what t-shirts should represent. If they tighten up a few design issues and focus a bit more on brand identity in their designs, they will be in great shape as they move forward.


Foxes and aliens at laFraise this week

by Andy on October 28, 2013

Couple of nice, wearable tees. Good work!



Once again we have two hip-hop themed designs from My Main Man Pat and once again I have no idea what they’re about, so here’s their own explanation:

“The Chain, The Star” is the creation of Belgian artist Phile, and is inspired by a man who needs no introduction. You better believe he’s going to get one though, DJ Premier is an undisputed legend and creates music like no other individual. You had to know a design inspired by his work was going to be tight.

“Acid Rap” is a piece that pays homage to a vastly less accomplished artist, but one we are very interested to see more of in the future. American artist Corey Blevins has made it rather clear to us that Chance the Rapper is his dude, he certainly kept it clean with this one. Golden Era hip-hop is always going to be the staple at MMMP, but a lot of good hip-hop is being made in the current and we gots to show love.

Shirts are $26 with free worldwide shipping and are available until Sunday.


What’s new at Tshirt Laundry this week?

I don’t think it’s their best week ever, but there’s not a lot to complain about at Tshirt Laundry this week.

Whilst stumbling about the internet on the everlasting hunt for skulls I found this wicked brand called Shirts & Destroy. Most , if not all, of their designs are single colour prints (I assume they are screen prints) on either black or white, with the occasional colour tee. Some of the tees are beasts with regards to intricate patterns like ‘Bones of the Snake’ (first image) where both the front and the back of the t-shirt are patterned in swathes of gold metallic print. You will even find a few Pale Horse designs in their huge catalogue of t-shirt designs. Here is an excerpt from their no bullshit hype  ‘About Us’ section:

“Our mission is to support true underground artists and musicians before their ideas are inevitably co-opted, copied and watered down to be sold in shopping malls.”

We have touched on Shirts & Destroy before with this post by Matt, introducing some new designs by one of their artists David M Cook, who has two of the coolest skull tees I have seen, if not the weirdest.

Hey brands, pick up a new design from DOOOM

by Andy on September 6, 2013

DOOOM is a great artist, and when he isn’t working on commissions he’s still producing designs based on what pops up in his head, and those designs are all available for sale on his site to be used by your brand and he’ll even edit them a bit to fit your brand. There’s loads of really wearable designs in there and I’m even tempted to pick one up for the HYA store (though I know I must resist!).

Thread Confessions: Thanks For Reading!

by Carlos J. Morales on August 4, 2013

When I first started collecting t-shirts, I was young trying to understand life as a sophomore in high school. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be involved with or writing for a website like Hide Your Arms. Andy is a true class act and I am honored to be on the roster of such talented writers. There is nothing more exciting than helping indie brands get the spotlight they deserve. As a token of gratitude, I have installed a permanent discount code for Hide Your Arms readers - HYA gets you 25% off any collaboration in the Oven Fresh Dreams store.  For those of you who do not know, I am a barista and baker by trade – Oven Fresh Dreams is my online collective that intertwines my lifestyle with the stories of all the creative people I encounter.

“When I started baking (before I truly knew what I was doing), I was influenced by many creative types. This list includes Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle, Benny Gold, Mike Giant, Freegums, and a handful of other wonderful people. The artistic vision behind these artists and business owners inspire me to take O.F.D to unreachable heights. Keeping that in mind, I want to showcase the talents of the people I encounter in my journey by teaming up and releasing a series of limited collaborations. Now known as The Collaborate & Dream Series – the series focuses on printable mediums; t-shirts, posters, prints, and zines with the hopes of elevating the exposure of the artists I work with. There is nothing more important to me than helping artists tell their stories and share their gift with the world.”


Thank you all for being amazing. I hope to review more brands for Hide Your Arms for months to come and can not wait for you to read!
