Not Clothes

NomadKey Lightning Keychain 480x270 Hands on review: Nomad ChargeKey and ChargeCard
I know what you’re thinking, that doesn’t look like a t-shirt or any other kind of clothing, and you’d be right. These are the ChargeKey and ChargeCard, innovative charging and data transfer solutions for iOS devices with a lightning cable (iPhone 5 onwards and some iPads, right?) and also micro USB. Having recently replaced my aging iPhone 4 with an iPhone 5 recently when I was given the chance by Nomad to check them out I thought it would be perfect, especially as I am excellent at losing cables.

The ChargeKey is a compact key-shaped cable that you can put on your keyring and never have those “I’ve forgotten my cable” moments again when you’re out and about, wanting to charge your phone or transfer some important data. It’s a good idea, usually I would dismiss something this small as only lasting a few months with me because I would lose it, but since it’s now on my keys that’s not going to happen, and I’m always prepared in case I get caught out at a friend’s house without charge, I can just plug it into a USB slot on their computer or their USB plug for another smartphone.

NomadKey Lightning MacBook 480x232 Hands on review: Nomad ChargeKey and ChargeCard
I’ve tested the key in every USB port on my PC, and a few different USB wall plugs (official Apple, Samsung, Kindle plugs) and none of them have brought up the dreaded ‘this accessory is not compatible’ warning that seems to be a common problem with other 3rd party charging cables (and some of the official ones too!). That’s hardly a surprise though as all of Nomad’s products are MFi certified by Apple so you can be confident that they will work. I wasn’t too confident leaving my phone dangling from the front to the USB input on the tower of my PC though, there was no danger of the phone crashing to the floor since it is a good fit, I just wasn’t comfortable with applying that kind of pressure to the USB input, the ChargeKey (with it being bent at 90 degrees), or the connection port on the iPhone. I’m sure that the setup wouldn’t have caused any damage, it just didn’t seem right not having my phone hanging in mid-air. That’s not really a situation that the key is designed for though, pop it into a laptop where it will lay flat, or use an Apple plug where the cable is pointing down and not stress anything, or a USB hub and you’re not going to have any of my overprotective worries.

81qKLeUeqAL. SL1500  480x384 Hands on review: Nomad ChargeKey and ChargeCard
The ChargeCard is similar, but different, instead of going on your keys this version of the card goes in your wallet. Again, it’s very useful and makes it a lot less likely you’ll be caught without a ‘cable’ (which this technically is, even if it doesn’t look like it), despite being credit card sized (though ticker) it feels solid and is rather ‘design-y’ rather than just being a utilitarian slab of plastic, which is a pretty admirable feat when you’re talking about something you use to charge your phone. Again, I had no problems in terms of functionality, it worked in every port I tested it on and that’s the best I could hope for. One thing I didn’t test was data transfer speeds because that seemed a little extreme for a clothing site to do, but I certainly couldn’t complain.

Previously, if you wanted either of these products you needed to have them sent from the US, and inevitably that meant paying over the odds because of import taxes and the dreaded ‘clearance fee’ levied by couriers that can often be more than the taxes. Nomad products can now be purchased directly from the UK via their Amazon store, and that’s fulfilled by Amazon so you’re also eligible for Prime delivery. It is a similar story for a few other countries around the world which is very convenient and does remove those niggling doubts from buying overseas. Both items are £20 each in either iOS lightning or micro USB format.

Nomad are currently also offering pre-order on newer versions of what will be called the NomadCard (which adds a longer USB connection), NomadKey (which looks the same), and the NomadClip which is an interesting carabiner-esque connector with a charging cable hidden within it. Those will be shipping in the Autumn but I think that the products as they are in their current incarnation are an excellent fit for their purpose and also a great help to people as forgetful as me!

I know, I know, there’s a lot of images in this post, but there could be a lot more as their lookbook will attest. I just kept scrolling through saying to myself “oooh, that can go in the post” and and that’s how we ended up where we are.

It would appear that patterns and all over prints are all the rage at Akomplice this season, there’s lots of really wearable Summer good in this drop. Oh, and I don’t think I’ve mentioned an umbrella before on HYA but when a company releases one that looks like that I can’t really ignore it!

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve written about Edward Teabelly, the tea-based clothing company, but then I seem to say that about a lot of brands these days. Still, really nice new tees that stay on-brand and have some really nice typework. Shirts are £18 a piece, and the beanie (available in three colours) is a very reasonable £10.

Earlier in the month while I was away in Japan (which seems so long ago already) Seventh.Ink dropped this new design on tees and printed too. Cool design and fits with their usual style, perhaps not something I’d wear these days but I am well aware that my taste in tees has mellowed over the past few years. Here’s the details about the new items:

Shirts: Screen printed with water based inks on Lieutenant Green and New Silver from American Apparel. Custom printed tags and sleeve logos as well
Original Illustration: 11×14 archival inks on sketchbook paper, signed, framed, ready to hang
Steel Blue Screen Print: Two colors, 18×24 on Steel Blue 100# French paper, signed/numbered, limited to 40
Fuse Green Screen Print: Two colors, 18×24 on Fuse Green 100# French paper, signed/numbered, limited to 15

The original illustration has already gone, but the others are still available.

The VigilanTees book will showcase all the amazing art seen on a daily basis across the limited shirt sites. There is so much incredible work being produced and shared that it makes sense to view this output in a different medium.

I am looking to put together a KickStarter project to get this book made. To make this work, however, I need you – and I need your opinions.

Please take two minutes to fill in my survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BYKV769

Thanks chaps

DSC5156 480x318 Memoirs Spring/ Summer Collection from Still Proud

Kicking off 2014 with a bang, Still Proud brings us their first drop of the year. Aptly titled “Memoirs,” the release is a trip down memory lane for SP featuring reprints of some of their most popular designs throughout the brands 5 year existence. Heavy on a theme of self empowerment & defiance, the release encompasses three graphic t’s (inc two girl prints), a snapback, windbreaker, raglan tee & tank-top. This release is even more limited then their previous ones keeping the quantities (minus the snapback) at 25 pieces and under so be sure to hit their store (http://stillproudclothing.bigcartel.com/) & scoop something up quickly!

Andy: Thanks for the submission!

Milk UKs impressive new release

hoodie teaser6 480x480 Milk UKs impressive new release
spill case2 480x480 Milk UKs impressive new release
This isn’t a submitted post but Matty over at Milk did a great job on his blurb so I’m going to copy/paste that here to help speed things along.

The new line features 4 Crew neck sweatshirts and 1 hoodie and a phone case.

Two of the crews feature our ‘Ornate Drop’ design which looks very traditional when seen from a distance, but when on close inspection you can see the overall design is made up of all things milk! Including; cows, spoons, milk bottle etc.

Our Script hood is a very comfortable garment which includes our custom cast milk bottle drawstring ends! This along with the red accents creates a really looking piece and a great talking point.

All of our garments have stepped up to custom finishing such as our care labels and bottle size tags.

It’s very rare for a brand to do custom drawstring ends on a hoodie, most big brands don’t even do that, so it’s especially impressive considering how young Milk is. That kind of evolution from a brand is great to see, who knows what they’ll come up with next time!

A quick tip of the hat to our buddies over at Anything Goes Apparel who have just celebrated their two-year anniversary. The birthday has coincided with a mini-range being released to keep them busy whilst the Summer ’14 range is being prepped. The mini-range includes a couple of tees, one new and old ‘classic’ that’s being brought back (and in a new raglan style too), and also some phone cases and embroidered logo beanies. That should keep their many fans busy for a while!

Victorian Madness by Dan Hillier

by Mr Four Fingers on January 13, 2014

dan hillier t-shirt design

Welcome to surreal Victorian madness with these beautiful and often slightly sinister creations by British artist Dan Hillier. These images are vintage Victorian etchings that Dan has meticulously crafted together to create something new and often wonderful. It’s not simply slapping things together drawings but rather a combination of wild imagination, skill and balance. There may have also been copious amounts of LSD involved.

Dan Hillier has a variety of prints, tote bags and loads of screen printed t-shirts. Tees are, from what I can tell, single colour screen prints on white and sell for £25 a pop. His website does not have a ‘Shop’ heading/section but if you look under ‘Galleries’ you will see a sub heading nestled there that is called’ T-shirts, Bags, etc”. Trust me, I missed that the first time.

Better yet just follow this blady LINK!

Also, all the designs are mocked-up on model but knowing Dan’s work I imagine the real product will be the same (placement and scale etc). Hopefully we can see some real product shots in the future.

AnyForty Massive Sale

by Mr Four Fingers on January 10, 2014

Anyforty sale

AnyForty, who have been on HYA a few times are currently having a massive sale. Prior to this sale I bought a mystery pack of 3 t-shirts for £40 and was super chuffed that one of the tees was a design from Meggs (last image), the very graffiti artist that attracted me to AnyForty in the first place.

One of the tees was their logo tee, which is far cooler than you would expect with the words ‘AnyForty’ created from vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines, so not as blatant, printed as white on maroon.

Everything is in the region of 50% off and I’m not sure how long it’s on for so get on that shit while you can. The header reads ‘End of year sale’ , so celebrate now.

Follow this link to visit AnyForty online store.

Last month I got sent an e-mail from someone called Betsy that was just this image, nothing else, no explanation, no tutorial, no shameless linkbait on “how to resuse your old t-shirts,” just a good, honest submission.
