Black Spot Apparel

by Andy on August 11, 2014

ORGANIC, COMFORTABLE, QUALITY, HAND PRINTED, ILLUSTRATED and DESIGNED clothing, that features the sea, surf, nature and creativity as main subjects. I work as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer and Im incredibly passionate about this (also passionate about the sea), so Black Spot is a physical representation of this.

Andy: Looks good so far, I’d like to see the incorporation of some of the illustrations in the background of these images to the designs in the future, it almost seems like the most interesting parts (to me as an outsider of the brand) aren’t on the shirts! Nice to see someone using bamboo too.


In Vision Concept apparel, we are aiming to bring a different perspective to street art and clothing. In july, we launched 13 new styles for both men and women. All designs made from original hand drawn designs. Limited quantities only.

Andy: Nice, thanks for the submission.


These were actually released almost a month ago, but I’ve had a bit of a crazy month with lots of trips away which has unsettled the posting schedule. Still, they looked good on release and they look good now.



Back to school? Isn’t there still a few weeks before that? Still, I won’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Threadless‘ annual Back to School Sale starts on Monday, August 4th at 12 a.m. CDT (5 a.m. GMT). Our entire catalog of t-shirts, tank tops, longsleeves, hoodies, and kids styles will be 40% off. All wall art and iPhone cases will be 30% off. Accessories like laptop sleeves, pet goods, and totes will run as low as 80% off. The sale ends Thursday, August 7th at 5 p.m. CT. (10 p.m. GMT)



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.

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.

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!

Akomplice Summer 2014 now available.

by Andy on June 9, 2014

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!


Howlin Woods Apparel

by Andy on May 28, 2014

Hi Guys, I recently released a small clothing line called Howlin Woods. Have a look at the site, watch the lookbook with a couple of nice shots from our first shooting, go grab a shirt or a beanie if you like!

Andy: Very cool lookbook photos and good looking designs too!


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.


KickStarter Book

by Andy on March 19, 2014

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

Thanks chaps

Andy: Interesting idea, I look forward to seeing how this one progresses.


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 ( & scoop something up quickly!

Andy: Thanks for the submission!
