New Delivery From Milk

by Ben_P on March 23, 2015

Fresh in from the Milk Man. Milk UK have their new line out now!

Coming from our success of our summer14 line we have managed to step up the garments even further in this release, from cut and sew pieces, to experimenting with textures and embellishments. Here is a brief breakdown of the collection:

Script Hood- Since releasing it 2014 and having it sell out in 3 weeks we had to bring this garment back in 2 colourways! (Heather Grey/Black x Mint Choc Chip) The also pullover hoodie features our custom milk bottle drawstring ends which caught a lot of attention last year.

College Dropout Varsity- Our first varsity in Navy/Burgundy. Features an embroidered ‘milk script’ patch along with a textured ‘Drop’ chenille patch, typically seen on varsity jackets.

Lost Boy Crew- A cut and sewn 3 colour crewneck featuring a torso print and contrasting cuffs

Downtown button up: A cut and sewn flannel ‘skater fit’ shirt featuring a contrasting black pocket with a large pocket print.

Ben : I’m big fan of Milk and have been for a little while now. I’ve actually purchased some of their stuff before and I can say it’s well worth it. The presentation of the delivery and finished product is just awesome. It’s hard to believe that they’re a relatively new brand in the grand scheme of things because their presentation is just spot on. The garments come packaged in old milk cartons which is a cool little touch, and everything features a nice little tag and really ties all of their products together with that professionalism you don’t necessarily see so early on. I’ve actually got one of their early on pocket tees, which while the quality of the shirt wasn’t the best out there, the whole feel of it was still very awesome – However having a chat to Matty over at Milk he assures me their quality has been ramped up a lot!

Anyway on to the actual new release. I’m a personal big fan of the simple Milk hoodie, the font is just awesome and mainly overall I love it for the draw strings (I know such a stupid reason to love a hoodie but who cares). I also particularly like the button up shirt with contrasting pocket, it’s simple and cool and I can see it appealing to a wide range of people. I’m not a huge fan personally of the Missing Crew Neck or the Varsity Jacket personally but that’s just not fitting with my tastes. I love the idea behind the Missing one however and it does make me chuckle but I just wouldn’t wear it (I don’t think I’ve ever worn an actual sweat shirt so I think that’s what puts me off a tad). The Varsity jacket is cool but again I’m letting my personal tastes affect my opinion here I just don’t see myself wearing it, it looks pretty awesome though with the custom patches on the left breast, the Milk drop emblem looks a tad rough around the edges close up on the images but that’s a manufacturing fault and not a reflection really upon their design and it’s only very minor areas where there seems to be a loss of colour.

Overall it’s a very strong lineup and there is sure to be something that will fit most peoples tastes out there, and definitely check out the rest of their products as they have some very well priced clothes! What do you guys think to their new line? Let us know!

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.

Swallows&Daggers are interesting because they started out as a tattoo blog and then slowly transitioned to what they are today, a fully-fledged clothing company offering some really nice designs, as this latest collection shows. I think that when you run a site about clothing and culture there is always a temptation to participate in it, I held off from selling HYA tees for years, but I really love it when people make a purchase because I know it means that this blog is important to someone other than me (though it would be nice if more people made purchases in the HYA store!). Here’s a bit of blurb:

Irish born – UK based brand Swallows&Daggers is pleased to announce the release of its newest collection of clothing for the Spring/Summer season. This collection, designed as a homage to the classic skate graphics of the 80’s. Blends a strong skate influence with nods to the Bones Brigade and other classic graphics alongside our core branding and new ghostcamo pattern. This collection also features a lot of firsts for the brand, marking its first venture into headwear and outerwear with 5-panels, snapbacks and a coach’s jacket all on offer alongside graphic tees and fleece options.

Check it out at www.respect-tradition.com

DBD have reversed the concept of their logo for these tees, which usually have the skull as the larger head and the little face on the hat. The cool thing about this is that it is interesting to hardcore fans of the brand since it does represent something different to them, but to casual people approaching the brand for the first time it’s still wearable. Tees are £25 each and the varsity jacket is £50.

A T-shirts Story

by Mr Four Fingers on May 7, 2013

Oor Wullie t-shirt

When visiting my Dad last year in South Africa I went to the storage room and pulled down some of my dusty storage boxes to rummage and reminisce. Inside the clutter I found two t-shirts, both of which had belonged to my dad. It got me thinking that It would be nice to know of other t-shirts (or other garments) that people have and their history.

Here are a few I have so far.

A Double Scottish Serving

So I might as well start with my first two t-shirts. This first white tee is blady tiny! I stress this as it was something my dad wore and I feel time and tumble driers have shrunk this to a kids size, literally… [click to continue…]

Margin London at HideYourArms

by Margin London on December 17, 2012

Margin London at HideYourArms

Margin London has been kindly invited to contribute to HideYourArms. We’ll be posting some news about up-and-coming labels that will be exhibiting at Margin in February 2013, which takes place on the 10th & 11th, but firstly we think we should introduce ourselves.

Started back in 2002 as an affordable platform for new designers, Margin is the longest-running independent trade exhibition in London. The show presents designer women’s and men’s tailoring and accessories, as well as streetwear for men and women, to invited store buyers and press.

The humble tee has long been a starting point for numerous labels, and we’ve seen many an exhibitor start off with a t-shirt offering which has grown over the seasons to include a full range of clothing. Supremebeing, Lazy Oaf, Seventyseven, Dephect, YourEyesLie, and many others all started at Margin with tees before growing their stockist base and extending their range to include clothing, bags, jewellery (or jewelry for Americans!), and hats.

Margin has been providing a launchpad for brands to meet with key buyers and press for 10 years to date, and 2012 marked a decade of exhibitions.

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition 10 Year Book

To commemorate the occasion, a limited-edition 10 year book was printed for visitors to the show, but it’s also available to download as a PDF or as a super-interactive book for iPad. The iPad version features extensive galleries of previous seasons, as well as videos, and can be downloaded here.

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition 10 Year Book for iPad

Here’s the link to posts where HideYourArms mentions Margin including brand updates from when they last visited (well overdue for a revisit but Andy & the HideYourArms London correspondent are returning in February 2013!).

Margin is an intimate showroom exhibition in a white gallery space in the heart of Central London, and the only tradeshow in the UK where buyers and press can discover new & emerging design talent (most making their debut launch).  When we say “NEW”, we don’t just mean new to Margin, we mean brand-spanking, never-been-seen-before, new!

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition

Since the exhibitions first started back in 2002, Margin can lay claim to providing the successful trade launch-pad for many brands such as Chateau Roux, Your Eyes Lie, Supremebeing, Dephect, Emily & Fin, Miyson, 1 in a 100, Missmilne, Worn By, Ashley Marc Hovelle, Humdrum, Worn Free, Sugarhill, King Apparel, Terratag, Lazy Oaf, Famous Forever, and Ruby Rocks, as well as the UK launching point of overseas brands including Silas, Upper Playground, Tank Theory, Eastpak Apparel, Loreak Mendian, Syndrome, Al & Alicia, Gama-Go, Mimobots, Double Goose, Stereo Sound Agency, Diamond Supply Co, Urban Originals, and Uzi amongst many others.

Margin London at HideYourArmsMargin has welcomed key stores to the exhibitions since first launching in 2002; from online players like ASOS, My-Wardrobe, and Urban Industry; multiples such as Ark, Joy, Beams, and Ships; department stores, such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Liberty, House of Fraser, Psyche, Fenwick, El Corte Ingles, Galleries Lafayette, & Engelhorn Trendhaus; as well as the key independents Margin is renowned for, including Colette, Hip, Sakis, Wood, Royal Cheese, Natterjacks, 290sqm, Coggles, Market, Atoo, My Yard, Donuts, Caliroots, and Get Cutie, to name a few.

Margin has welcomed numerous stylists and fashion editors from magazines including Vogue, Wad, Elle, Wallpaper, Arena, i-D, FHM, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Vice, DJ, Flux, WWD, Drapers, Sportswear International, and Sport & Street; as well as contributors from directional blogs such as BNTL, Coolhunting, Hypequest, Slamxhype, Hypebeast, and, of course, Hideyourarms.

Post image for King Apparel AW12 arrives at Sturban Clothing


I was actually thinking to myself over the weekend that Glyn from Sturban hasn’t been in touch for a while, and then when I started work on Monday morning I noticed an e-mail from him, spooky!

He wanted to let us know that King Apparel’s AW12 collection is now in stock at Sturban, and in the process I found that he is a far better writer than I, so instead of me trying to mumble through telling you about the line and end up telling a story about myself in the process, I’ll just copy/paste what he told me:

As winter approaches here in the UK the aut/win clothing ranges start to arrive and one of the first with their split delivery meaning clothing suitable for the UK’s autumn weather is King Apparel.

King Apparel are one of the UKs foremost premium streetwear brands remaining resolute as ever; to develop and grow a clothing brand independently, run by those who live and breath the culture; to create cutting edge design; to deliver impeccable quality and to retain the utmost integrity at every point. Keeping things exclusive with a maximum of 300 pieces or less produced in each garment and a no re-runs or repeats philosophy to retain exclusivity.


With that King Apparel have covered many bases this season with a pricepoint denim coming in at under £55 the Athelstan is set to sell out instantly. Made with the same care and quality of all King garments the Athelstan is setting a new standard, matt black King buttons on the fly, leather K logo patch on the right rear pocket and tan embroidered triple stitch on the rear pockets, these bad boys have been manufactured to perform and sell.





Along with denim King have produced some custom, cut and sew crew neck sweat shirts in classic colour combinations and killer designs, The Prestige with the King lion head logo sells out every season and this year comes in the new exclusive colour Baby Blue. That is supported by what will become classic designs Reign Supreme no fifty shades of grey here just athletic grey with a yellow print and the new East London Kings in Navy with blue print or bad boy black and orange, if you know your culture you will get these designs.


Enough of the classics I said King had covered all the bases and here’s my key piece and whilst others in the streetwear business are playing safe King drop the Duck Camo Rain Mac, BOOM!!!! I love this piece and will be rocking mine any day. King started from scratch and designed the camo and had the fabric produced before they perfected this jacket. I know King Apparel and I have one of their jackets that I wear everyday in the cold morning walking my dogs, it performs and I know the Duck Camo RainMac will too and not only that it looks very, very, VERY cool, sorry did I repeat myself there ;-)

Of course you can get all these pieces plus more from King Apparel and all your other favourite urban streetwear brands from sturbanclothing.com the only place to shop online since 1999 and still keeping it UK and independent all the way.

And yet somehow I’m almost considered a professional writer, madness!

Check out the FW2012 Collection from OLOW

Post image for Check out the FW2012 Collection from OLOW





This collection from OLOW seems somehow more highbrow than I’m used to posting, but I’m cool with that since it’s really nice looking stuff and there’s no reason why HYA can’t comb it’s hair and smarten up every once in a while.

Fall 2012 lands at Glamour Kills

by Andy on August 18, 2012

Post image for Fall 2012 lands at Glamour Kills

Seeing a jacket in a release from a clotihng company makes me sad because I feel like we’ve barely had a Summer here in the UK and people are already turning their attention to Fall/Autumn. Still, it’s a damn good looking jacket at Glamour Kills (and the rest of the collection is pretty nifty too), so head over and check it out.

steve mcqueen leather jacket


Motorbikes scare me. The thought of riding one scares me, the thought of hitting one whilst I’m driving scares me, even them being behind me as I’m driving makes me nervous because I know that they are usually waiting for the next opportunity to pass me. I think that part of this stems from a guy overtaking me on his bike and then me finding him trapped under a car on the next bend, so I think I’m quite justified in not seeing the value of moving very fast with minimal protection.

However, some people are a lot more brave/foolhardy than I am, and that’s their choice and things will always be that way, so they might as well look good doing it. The leather jacket you can see above first came into production back in the 1930s and remained as an integral part of Lewis Leathers range until the middle of the 1960s, which is a lifespan that most designs don’t enjoy today. Steve McQueen was a fan of the jacket, picking it up whilst The Great Escape was being filmed, and he wore it in 1963 during the 500 mile Greenhorn Enduro race across the Mohave desert. Lewis have now decided to bring the jacket back into production and have reproduced the original in painstaking detail.

As my opening paragraph suggests, I don’t know much about motorbikes, and the clothing for them remains just as much of a mystery, but I would assume that a jacket like this can be worn both on and off your bike, and whether you’d want to risk wearing a £675 leather jacket whilst riding your bike is a whole other question.

Jacket available now from Lewis Leathers now.

ss'12 supremebeing t-shirts






These Supremebeing shirts at Street Casuals are a bit of a departure from the usual HYA fayre of printed graphics, but I quite like the change. There’s lots of strong and bold colourways here that I think would look really good being paired up with a lightly more muted top layer like a darker jakcet or zip up hoodie. Also in this release from Supremebeing is a couple hats and a few sweaters & light jackets but the tees looked the most interesting to me and this post had more than enough pictures in already anyway. If you’re looking to pick up a tee you’ll be spending £30, which does seem like quite a lot to me, but then again I haven’t paid for a t-shirt for a few years now so my perceptions of value are slightly warped.

I’m not nearly cool enough to have heard of Marshall Artist before Street Casuals dropped me an e-mail about them, but I like their style, everything is very clean and wearable. I could natter on for a while but to be honest the SC press release about the goods is far too well put together for me to ignore, so you can find that after the break.

Daily Tees & News Roundup for November 4th

by Andy on November 4, 2011

pacman mario t-shirt

I like the concept but I’m not too into the style of the artwork in this Pcamn x Mario mashup tee at TeeFury today. It looks more like a comic (and a well illustrated one, let me be clear) than a t-shirt design.


Oooooh, political shirt from Qwertee today, very cool, very timely.


Another old shirt from Tilteed, I’d love to know when they’ll be dropping some new designs.


Nice colourway on today’s Stupidhurts.us robot t-shirt.


It’ll never last, they’re from two different worlds! Shirt.Woot.


I’m glad this has the word ‘Firefly’ written on it otherwise I’d have had to hunt out the reference on this RIPT tee.


I love Zoidberg, so I think that this Futurama tee at TeeMinus24 is pretty nifty.


I love lunch, it’s one of the few times in the day that I’m not staring at a screen. This shirt is referring to the film Wall Street, so I can only assume that 24tee are hoping to pick up sales from the 1%!


Another oldie from Loviu, cool though.


Aren’t we all always at the corner of time and space? Catch of the Day Tee.


Not getting the reference on today’s Shirt Punch design, is it something to do with Portal?


Time to add TeeBlitz to the daily roster. This $10 tee shop has got that fantastic astronaut-based design on sale for the weekend.


Urban Industry are offering free shipping on orders until November 18th to try and encourage early shoppers.As you can tell from the infographic, they’re also offering extended returns and reminding you that gift vouchers are a thing.


Use the coupon code SEPT to get 20% off your order at Enclothe until 11/11/11, who have just introduced a new hoodie and had a few restocks too.


BustedTees are bringing in daily deals, starting with their Honey Badger shirt being $12 until midnight (EST).


PLNDR have got some ridiculous deals going on, probably on stuff that you’ll regret buying, but still. Oh, and if you manage to spend $100 or more, use the coupon code 20BUCKZ to get $20 off your order.


Karmaloop‘s latest offer is: “This Week:Spend $75 get *free shipping, Spend $125 get 15% off + *free shipping, Spend $200 get 20% off + *free shipping, Spend $350 get 25% OFF+ *free shipping,
USE CODE: LEVEL25 *$8 off international shipping” I wonder if anyone has ever bought anything for full price at Karmaloop.


Buy 4 shirts and get 1 free at Spreadshirt this month.


Dephect are offering a free card wallet with all orders, and the cool part is that you get to choose which wallet you receive depending on the coupon code you use. From right to left in the picture, these are the coupons to use: CITYWALLET ODWALLET ICECREAM BUYRECORDS.


Concrete Rocket have expanded their product range with a couple of jackets.


New shirt from A Better Tomorrow.


Mental Floss have got shirts as low as $9.99 for people that like their funny tees with some smarts to go with them.


Storenvy have a guide to taking photos of small items for your store, which will be of limited use to people with just t-shirts in their store, but it’s a decent tutorial and I felt it was worth adding to the news roundup today.

YMC jacket

Yes, it is more than a little pricey at £95, but sometimes things just aren’t cheap and this is one of those times, and you should know by now that I like the idea of something in a conservative colourway (that still looks damn good) covering over a bright tee, juxtaposition my friends!

Costiness=£95 Buy it at Glass Boutique

Albatross jacket by La Merde

by Andy on November 14, 2009

La Merde Fall 2009 Men - Jackets & Hoodies_1258117896752

I don’t think you need to be French to know what this label (which is actually part of the No Star Clothing group) is called in English. I may have derided Slut clothing earlier in the week for their choice of name (surprisingly they haven’t thanked me for that review yet), but with La Merde I can see how it works, their name is French, and therefore classy, but the translation is pretty cheeky, which is a lot like their clothing.

Costiness=$165 Available from La Merde.

Just try telling me you don’t like this jacket, if you try, your keyboard will refuse, as will your fingers & hands, you may even slap yourself for trying to lie to me.

Costiness=$100 Available from Jedidiiah Clothing

The Johnny Cupcakes Juggernaut rolls on with yet more “hey, that’s not a t-shirt” items. I wasn’t too into the ties that were released recently, but then again, I write about t-shirts, so when would I ever wear a tie? This windbreaker though, this I can get into, I love the colourway, and the subtle cupcake camo makes it interesting without being over-the-top on the bakery-love.

Costiness=$98.99 Available from Johnny Cupcakes for men, and for women

Felt Jacket by Ucon

Ucon Shop_1254482805234
Ucon Shop_1254482796177
Ucon Shop_1254482786143

The page says that this fine looking jacket is on pre-order, but also that it will be in their office by September 25th, so either it’s available now and they haven’t updated the page, or there has been some kind of delay in production, either way, it’s a good looking, understated jacket.

Csotiness=€139.99 Available from Ucon

Plains Waterproof Jacket by Durkl

by Andy on September 28, 2009

plains_grey

Yay, a waterproof jacket in my favourite colourway (as if you couldn’t tell just by looking at the design of this site). I think I might prefer it if the jacket were a bit cleaner without the two big pockets on the front, but it still looks good.

Costiness=$150 Available from Durkl

The Flight Jacket by Gentle Fawn @ Karmaloop

by Andy on September 19, 2009

GF093-2236-ARMzoom1

Is there really any point in me telling you what I think of women’s clothes when I have absolutely no kind of expertise for what women want (other than a slice of Andy, obviously)?

Costiness=$74 Buy this jacket at Karmaloop (remember, you can get up to 20% off your order with the rep code AS7594, remember how I used to say that all the time?)
