The clothes are cool, that almost goes without saying when it comes to Akomplice, who dropped this latest collection yesterday, but it’s the lookbook concept and photographs that are blowing me away. They’ve taken their standard ‘cool guy on a white background’ photos that they usually take, and then pasted them all over Denver, and then taken cool photos of them. Really original stuff from AK.

Say hello to BÄAS Clothing

floraledit1 1024x1024 Say hello to BÄAS Clothing
BÄAS Clothing was setup last November by three guys at Loughborough Uni that somehow found out about HYA via a local pizza place, a pizza place that I’ve never ordered from (but keep intending to), so maybe I’m more famous in the local area than I realised!

Lots of logo designs here, which as ever I feel is a bit of a barrier to entry for a brand since you need people to like the logo and name rather than just thinking “hey, that’s a cool design” but there are lots of popular logo-driven companies out there so I’m not one say that it is the wrong approach, it might just make life a bit harder at first. I do really like the shirts with the big designs on the back, I’d quite like to see them with the big design on the front (which the floral A design is as a crew, and it works really well) but that’s just my personal taste and there does seem to be a bit of a trend in the UK for a pocket placement print on the front and going big on the back, so I suspect that this is just one of those cases where the youngsters are moving with the times and I’m getting a bit traditional as I edge closer to 30.

Signal Sweat Grey Main 1024x1024 480x679 Say hello to Dewerstone, tees and sweats designed and hand stitched in Dartmoor
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.

1375782437527 480x153 Cool illustrative tees and crew necks from Get Better Clothing
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.

HIWYHI take a bit of a different approach to most tee brands when they release a new season, instead of having lots of different designs they pick a couple of designs (in this case two new designs and their typework logo) and then make them availabe in lots of different colourways (there’s a lot more than I’m showing here) and on different items of clothing. I’d like to see the colourways pared down a bit and more design options in each release, but that’s probably just because I’m a greedy bloggers that constantly wants to see more new stuff.

Scared Til Death have really impressed me with this ‘Winter’ (they’re Australian) collection of tees crew necks and hoodies (there’s more available but I thought seven pictures was enough), though the price is a bit off-putting to a European spoiled by all the free samples that I’ve received over the past few years, at AUD$60 for a tee which equates to pretty much USD$60 these days. It’s a lot for a t-shirt, but knowing the Australian market I would expect that they aren’t actually making a large markup on that, t-shirts simply cost more in Australia to the point where it has the unfortunate consequence of pricing out most customers from outside the country, especially if you add on the postage charges ($24 to the US for a tee, $28 to the UK). Honestly, it’s just too much and it’s something that I can’t ignore, which is a real pity.

So, I’m going through my old e-mails and I noticed that there’s a was quick message from Josh at Damascus Apparel that I had forgotten to check out, and I feel pretty bad about it because they’ve got some really cool stuff in this collection, and the tees are well priced at $19.95 a piece. Fortunately for us, it looks like nothing has sold out yet, so even though I’m about 6 weeks late posting this it’s all avilable, huzzah!

smile 480x723 Welcome to The Circus (and get 15% off too!)
This isn’t a submitted post but Lucas over at The Circus has done a good job with his blurb so why should I spend time re-writing it?

We are a new circus-themed brand based out of Pasadena, California. The designs put a fun circus twist on things such current events, pop culture and much more. A circus is colorful, diverse, inspiring, & lively. At a circus, onlookers want adventure, fun, & entertainment. So, our mission is to deliver important messages to the public using the welcoming, fun-loving, and appeal of a circus. As an upcoming apparel company, our goal is to differentiate ourselves from other online apparel shops. So sit tight, we are going to bring you a great show. Don’t forget, we only make a select amount of merchandise — once it sells out we will never make the same product. Check the site often or you may miss out. Use code “HYA” and receive 15% off your entire purchase.

I like their designs and the concept is solid, priced well too with tees between $20 and $13. We should have a hands-on review coming up with these guys soon so be on the look out for that.

Impressive new collection from Sin Star, I’d say that it follows a lot of the trends that are hot in the UK at the moment, but I’m fairly sure that does Sin Star a disservice since they’re probably actually influencing the scene at the moment. There’s a load more in the collection but I didn’t want to put too many images in this post.

You can generally tell how much I like a collection by the amount of pictures that I share of it, sometimes if it’s a big release from a brand I might skip one or two of the items just for the sake of brevity, but in the case of this #TokyoTribes collection from Project A Apparel I’ve included every item, if not all of the many, many lookbook photos the are available. Here’s what Project A have to say about the collection:

Project A Apparel are back with their first drop from their SS 2013 line, this time taking a trip to the far east with #tokyotribes. The first release from the collection focuses on the brand’s experiences and influences from Japan, taking in imagery from classic anime movies , Bosozuku biker gangs and video games. Featuring graphic tshirts, sweatshirts, a zip up hoody, hats as well as their very first illustrated oxford shirt. The new collection showcases two guest collaborators, Dublin artist Morgan who worked on the Lucky Pussy tee and patch graphics and world renowned Irish godfather of graffiti, Rask.

The collection was actually released on May 1st, but as I was away I’m sure you’ll forgive me for being a bit tardy with this one.

I am constantly impressed by the quality of designs at Sevenly, but it’s so depressing hearing about all the people that they’re helping with their charity donations. Can’t a guy just bury his head in the sand and enjoy the fantastic artwork?

This week $7 from every tee sale if going to the Polaris Project, which works to help fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

I’m usually fairly cynical about charity t-shirt sites, Sevenly has proven to be an exception since they always (always!) have good looking tees and give a good portion of the shirt cost to charity, but the effect that this weeks donation can give has really floored me. As usual, buying a shirt from Sevenly will result in $7 going to their chosen charity of the week, which this week is End7, a charity dedicated to eliminating seven neglected tropical diseases by 2020, a lofty goal, but why aim low when you’re dealing with diseases?

You’d think it would be quite expensive protect children from seven different diseases, but it’s actually just 50c, and that’s not for one dose, that’s protection for a whole year, so your $7 will ensure that 14 kids don’t get “elephantiasis, river blindness, trachoma, snail fever, hookworm, whipworm and roundworm.” It’s amazing just how much of a difference such a small amount of money can make.

Also, the designs look great!

SS13 from No Good is actually pretty good

No need for my usual rant about how hard it is for a logo-based brand to establish itself because I really dig the logo on No Good‘s tees, totally wearable and you don’t need to be a fan of the brand to appreciate it. I like the pocket tees with the patterns and I do like the movie based pocket tees but I am quite sure that if they came under any scrutiny from a lawyer they’d have to stop selling them as I doubt that they have permission to use the images. Doesn’t stop them being cool, just a bit questionable in terms of copyright.

They’ve got more stuff available than is shown above, I just didn’t want to get too carried away with the photos, click on through and check them out. Tees are around €25.
