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.

After graduating with a degree in Design, I haven’t stop my passion to design and create inspirational pieces of art work. Most of my art work is inspire by music, life, and my journey.

Milk are an interesting brand because the first time we saw them they had a hoodie with milk bottles on the drawstrings, that’s something that you don’t expect to see from a new brand, it’s a custom product, not just a design slapped onto an American Apparel garment while they’re getting a feel for the clothing world. Bearing that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that this Summer collection shows a similar polish and a bit of a change from the norm. Here’s what they had to say about it:
It features various garments which have been manufactured and printed to the best quality. Various printing techniques have been used including dye sublimation and up to 6 colour screen prints! Our designs also come back stronger with different patterns and illustrations such as “Cowmo” (camouflage mad from cows), a Froot Loops print and even a pop art inspired pin up girl. We have also added a really nice Chambray oxford shirt into the mix with a milk spill pocket detail.
Tees are £18 or £22, vests £14, and items from the last collection are on sale too so you can grab tees for as low as £8.
Deep Antiquity is a dark street wear brand based in Miami Fl producing Light and airy garments that provide the canvas for dark deep-seeded designs manifested through the vessel of modern fashion & esoteric style.

Max from over at The Max Factory got in touch to let us know that he currently has a tank top up for pre-order in his shop. It’s a bit of a departure from the previous designs he’s made available, and it’s not something that I’d wear, but I think we’ve gone over my hairiness in the past enough that I don’t need to explain again why I don’t wear tank tops. I think that the style of the tee designs is great though, I really like that look, it’s really nice Summertime style shirts.
Hide Your Arms readers can get 10% off your entire order with the coupon code hideyourarms, and that’s off anything, the older designs and the new tank-top.
Offend My Eyes was started by a couple who got sick of being judged by other people, just for being themselves.
“We sell clothing and accessories that make a bold statement about who you are; whether that offend’s people eyes or not. We don’t care who you are, or what you look like, you’re all awesome to us!
WE SUPPORT BEING YOU”
Offend my eyes sell a range of offensive and grotesque designs that can be seen on Tshirts, vests, shorts, hats and accessories; they are certainly not for the faint hearted!
Andy: The idea of a brand being created with the intention of offending people has always struck me as odd, purposefully doing something to make people uncomfortable doesn’t sit well with me, but of course that reflects upon me as a person, which is exactly what this brand is about, being who you are. Then again, if the kind of person you are is someone that wear a shirt with an octopus with a vagina on a mouth printed on it you might want to take a quick look in the mirror, or maybe my age is catching up with me.
Beyond the style element (which clearly isn’t for me), everything else looks well done, the prints, the site, branding is solid, so I definitely can’t fault them on the technical aspects of the business.
