Not Clothes

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!

New Design Alert at Born Humble

Just released two new designs from our Spring Collection. Born Humble Snapback and Humble State of Mind Tee. Please check them out at

Andy: Nicely done, works the brand into the design without ramming it down your throat.


Milk UKs impressive new release

by Andy on March 5, 2014



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!


Anything Goes Apparel is two years old!

by Andy on March 4, 2014

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!


According to Norse mythology, Voluspa tells the story of Baldr who was slain by Loki and marked the beginning of Ragnarok, the Norse Apocalypse. Chaos was unleashed and even the almighty Thor perished after defeating the Midgard Serpent.

T-Shirt designed by Craig Robson
Beanie patch designed by Hydro74

Andy: You can’t really go wrong when you get Craig Robson and Hydro74 to do designs for you.



I’ve created the WORLD’S first refined and functional front pocket for your sweatshirt. It’s patent pending and I KNOW that it’s the perfect product for hideyourarms! I’d love to hear back from you guys about how we can get pat’s pocket on your site! In the meantime check out our Kickstarter page to see the simplicity and HYPE that pat’s pocket can create. It’s a business created to keep people warm!!!

Andy: At first I thought that this product was pretty silly, but actually, it’s well priced and it serves a real purpose, I like it!


MKNK Clothing just released 3 new snapbacks. Each one of them are limited edition of 50 and up on sale for 30 usd. Also by using code ”2014” on checkout page you’ll get 14% discount on your entire order at MKNK Store. Discount is valid thru February 1st.

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.

Say hello to the Tcozy, a t-shirt tea cosy!

by Andy on January 2, 2014

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.

Home Is Where Your Heart Is F/W13 Collection

by Andy on December 30, 2013

Very nice indeed with excellent lookbook photos.



You’d think that with me being into photography I’d know who Ricky Powell is, but whilst I’m sure I’ve heard the name before I must admit that I don’t know his work. That doesn’t matter though, because these sublimation tees featuring some of his most iconic tees look great either way.

New hat from Born Humble [Submitted]

by Andy on December 17, 2013

Born Humble Clothing new “Humble” beanie for winter has arrived. Stay Humble even in the cold weather.

Andy: Thanks for the submission.


Solid round of releases from British label Black Blood Apparel, it all works together, feels cohesive, and I think that those hats are going to come in handy over the next few months.


Winter Release from CX.City

by Andy on December 4, 2013

Gotta love those lookbook photos, really nicely done, they give a good feel for what CX.City are all about and show off the new collection to great effect. These guys have a clean new site for you to check out as well.


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned how Labyrinth were drip-feeding their winter collection this year (and then managed to forget to post their new wallet last week). The new release this week is a couple of classic beanies with some subtle branding, and really attractively priced at just $12.
