I came to know and value my heritage on a journey of discovery, failures, and great triumphs. Through Almaic I have captured those intimate details, wrapped in the lessons and intellect of my ancestors and culture. Almaic uses its Arabic history to promote values of peace, diversity and love. Almaic products are the highest quality and we produce garments that give each artist a sense of pride. There is no holding back at the Almaic printing studios. My approach to the graphic novel tee embraces our core qualities, and captures the essence of human truth and individuality. Almaic provides a complete circuit for every launch. Never shying away from controversy and creative responsibility, Almaic is a brand with standards. We all have been gifted by our ancestors and I seek to give back to the world through my creative talents.
All garments are American Apparel and Printed in my studio on Portland, Oregon.
Andy: Always good to see something new from Almaic.
Very nice indeed with excellent lookbook photos.

You’ll have to get your order in quick, but as far as ugly Christmas jumpers go I think that this might be my favourite of the year!

Andy: Thanks for the submission!
Cool new collection from Moloch Clothing , I really dig the botanical and bird shirts, those a are really nice and really wearable designs. I’m not sure if Microsoft would be too happy if they saw that sweatshirt though!
The tees have sine an upgrade from the last collection, they now use Continental N45 blanks which are made of 70% sustainable bamboo and 30% organic cotton. It’s a quality shirt that doesn’t lose it’s shape through washing (trust me, I have a lovely green blank from them) and feels good too.
Shirts are available now for £25, sweatshirts are £30, and what’s left of their first collection has been dropped down to £20 per tee.
Here’s something fun, when I went down to Margin back in August I got to meet the Mayamada team (and very nice they were too), but I also got to check out this range of designs, so I can give these the Andy seal of approval and they haven’t even been released yet since they’re on pre-order until October 21st (Monday). There’s some really cool designs in there, nice and wearable, and the print quality looked good when I was checking them out, so I think you can buy these tees and crew neck sweatshirts with confidence.
Mayamada will also be appearing in the ASOS marketplace from November so that should be good for their growth since ASOS is a really big player globally these days. Tees are £25 with sweatshirts weighing in at £35.
Cool concept for a very wearable shirt design (also available as a crew neck), which interestingly they offer in both a regular and fashion fit, something I feel reflect the many demos that are attracted to Akomplice. Oh, and yes, you do get a custom branded Sharpie with your tee so you can fill in the crossword if you’d like. The shirt is $30 ($65 for the crewneck) and available now from the Akomplice webstore.
You’re probably thinking that I’m going to rip Dewerstone for not having enough designs without their logo on, and you’re right, I really do wish that they had more designs that weren’t to do with their name, because I think it’s something that creates a ‘barrier to entry’ for a brand. By putting your name on your goods you make the person need to like your brand before they make a purchase, something that you don’t need to do with a cool piece of art or a pop culture design (though then you’re just using their love of someone else’s ideas to help sell your goods), because the image is the real seller there. It seems like the hard way to go with a brand, but maybe these guys want to go the hard way and create that brand recognition from the start.
It’s quite frustrating since I think otherwise Dewerstone are doing everything else right with their approach to the business and I love that there is a company in the UK stitching their own goods and even using tiny paintbrushes to ensure that their prints are perfect. Then again, maybe it’s just me, after several years of writing about tee brands it’s hard to get excited about a brand with their logo on the shirt, but I think these guys do have the potential to be really, really good so hopefully as they grow we’ll be able to see a bit more creativity on the design front and I should just respect their choices at this point.
They’ve offered a sample to us for review so hopefully we’ll be bringing that to you soon and we can talk more about the quality (which I suspect to be very high) rather than me bitching about logos.
These guys got in touch about a week ago to say hello and I’m glad they did because now we know about their really interest art-based t-shirt designs, loads of really wearable stuff in here. It’s cool to hear from a brand in Israel too as that’s a bit of a rarity on HYA, I don’t know if that’s because of a lack of indie brands out there or they just haven’t been getting in touch with me.
Shirts are €26, and tank tops are €30 with plenty of other stuff available that I haven’t shown above.
Get Better Clothing are a new one on me, but they got in touch to let me know about their Summer collection and I sure am glad that they did since I really like the style of their designs. I’m not sure which of those above are from the new collection, the bear and cowboys & indians designs definitely are, but the others may be older. Still, with this being our first look at them I thought there was no harm in showing off everything they’ve got.
Tees come in at £24.99 and crew necks are £34.99 including delivery in the UK, which isn’t bad at all, but HYA readers can get 15% off their orders with the coupon code HYA15. They’re an eco-conscious bunch so some of the shirts are organic bamboo fibre, which always feels good (and is naturally anti-bacterial, which is always good during the hot and humid months), and they print with water-based inks and package using recycled and recyclable card and paper. Go team green!
Hide Your Arms isn’t a place for politics, it’s a place for showing you guys cool clothes. That said, if there were less guns in the US, and it was harder to buy them, there would be less gun deaths (and probably less homicides too), it’s as simple as that. The cool thing about this design is that it is actually pretty wearable, it makes a statement and does it in a way that doesn’t have to compromise your style, like most political shirts do.
Crew necks, tees, and tank tops are available in the Akomplice store now.
