Oh Urban Industry, ‘Fall’? Fall?! It’s called Autumn. I’ve been getting into streetwear a bit more recently, so when I checked out their Stussy offering (which comprises of a lot more items than I’m showing you here) I was mighty impressed by what I had to see, it’s good to see them bringing these kinds of goods over to the UK.
Sure, you can’t buy these (at least not yet), but it’s still a really cool illustration showing some iconic sweaters from the worlds of cinema, TV and music. Weezer caught wind of this post by Found Item Clothing and mentioned it on their Facebook page, resulting in an avalanche of traffic for Travis. I’m sure this post on HYA won’t bring him similar internet fame, but hopefully you guys will enjoy checking out these lovely illustrations.
“Kings of Neon”, ha, I see what you did there, Terratag.
This is the sweatshirt version but of course it is also available as a t-shirt, which I think would probably be a better medium for this design.

Since Treacle Clothing started printing graffiti tshirts in early 2010 they have released 14 t-shirts so far, as well as a couple of tote bags, sweaters and prints. There are a few things about Treacle Clothing that make them unique, the attention to detail throughout the range and its packaging to the hand finishing of the garments. Treacle print on carbon neutral, ethically sourced cotton garments that are hand finished and printed in the UK, here are a couple of my faves, I think we will be seeing a lot more from Treacle this year!
Death Before Dishonour found themselves hanging around a club at 4:30am, so they threw some of their new goods & colourways on DJ Lost and MC Skullion Shadez (I have no idea which is which, I’m not cool enough to know who they are) and took some photos. Often when I look at mockups from streetwear companies I’m left a bit cold, they need to be viewed worn by a model to get the full effect, something that I think the photos in the gallery show well.
As I looked through the images I was sent in the e-mail I just kept nodding and saying “yes, yes, yes” because this line from SUTSU is very impressive. It all looks good with the big, bold and usually simple graphics, and 95% of the pieces are printed on EarthPositive garments. If you’re unaware, EarthPositive is a range from Continental clothing which is 100% organic and it’s production is done in a low emission way, in fact, I think it might actually be carbon negative (production takes carbon emissions out of the air instead of polluting it).
Good clothes that are good for the Earth, what more could you want?
This was actually released more than a week ago, but in the spirit of “if I haven’t seen it, it’s new to me,” I present you with the first part of Gold Coin’s Spring Collection. Looks good to me, it’ll be interesting to see what other goodies they come up with, and I’ll try to post them in a more timely fashion.
MySoti have had their fair share of problems of the past few months/years, but it’s good to see that they’re continuing to push on now that things have calmed down and are expanding their offering to include sweatshirts. So that’s tees, prints, lampshades (yup.) and now sweatshirts, what on earth will be next!
Fast! Times clothing based in Rockland New York recently dropped there 2010-2011 winter line featuring these shirts. Most noticeably the Bubble Gum shirt & Diamond Kiss shirt available for both mens and woman in multiple colorways.
[Andy: I wasn't really feeling this line when I saw the products in the store, but seeing them in their lookbook did make things a lot better, which is proof (if it were needed), that using pictures of your tees being worn by people is a good idea.]

Here is the new DBD logo and for the first time ever printed onto black with white print. It is on a heavyweight set in sleeve sweat and heavyweight tee.
There have been so many requests for the logo as a white print on black and now I’m happy with it I have finally gotten round to it.
Here’s the changes that I have made:
1. Widened the head, he looked too wimpy before and after a few months it drove me crazy.
2. I have drawn much better swords and included the Hamon (the wavey cutting edge) I felt this to be an important detail for the route I wanted to take the brand.
3. Removed the under title and replaced it with DBD
4. Put more detail and better shaping into the helmet mascot.
5. Reshaped the helmet

[Andy: I really liked the style of this submission, and it would be cool to see more people doing submissions like this where they critique and explain the design.]

I’ve always found the notion of a ‘capsule collection’ quite funny, it’s just a way of making ‘small collection’ sound cooler… and it kind of works.
I do like the idea of this collection from Gold Coin, releasing a vinyl toy, accessories sweater and a tee at the same time, although the fact that I like that hieroman character probably has a lot to do with it, even if the toy is $68 (probably normal in the vinyl toy world, but a little much for me).
Branded Baron have dropped their winter line, with a sweater ($40), a hoodie ($40) and a few tees ($20) in it, which pretty much covers everything you’ll want for the chilly season and the summer. However, you’re probably thinking it would be nice if the prices were just a little bit lower (even though they aren’t exactly gouging you as is), say 15% lower?
Good news! You can save 15% by using the coupon code hideyourarms at the checkout. I think that coupon code has no expiry associated with it, which is nice.
I love the dumb shocked look of this owl, it makes for a really likable character, and a damn fine looking sweater!

Jesus, that title is so bad it actually depressed me, feel free to do better in the comments.
Death Before Dishonour, fresh off being given an English lesson by a blogger that’s constantly making mistakes, have released a new design that I can’t find anything wrong with!
The tee comes in at £25 whilst you’ll be dropping £42 for the sweatshirt version. Usually I’m not too into sweatshirts, but I think this design really works well with the garment.
I like this tee design, it’s pretty full on, but then again Death Before Dishonour don’t really do half measures, so I was expecting nothing less when they tweeted me a link to this design, which was apparently inspired by a book called “Go Rin No Sho” from 1645 by Miyamoto Musashi.I have no idea if that really has any effect upon the design, but it’s nice to know that it came from somewhere.
However, and I don’t want to be a spelling Nazi here, but I was watching the always-excellent Only Connectlast night on Sky+ (so it was an old one), and they had up a list of words like sheep, samurai, and a couple of other I can’t remember off the top of my head. The thing that connected those words was that their plurals do not have an ‘S’ on the end of them, the singular and the plural have the same spelling. I assume that in modern English it’s okay to use both ‘samurai’ and ‘samurais’ at the plural, but there’s always going to be some jackass like me around to tell you that there’s a speling mistake on your tee every time you wear it, because that’s just the way the world works.
If that superfluous ‘s’ doesn’t bother you the tee is £25 in the DBD store, and the sweatshirt is £42.
As is the usual disclaimer, Thriving Ink are an advertiser on this site, and I’m a total sellout so you shouldn’t trust a word I say, so I won’t say much at all about these new shirts (and a crewneck!) and let you make up your own mind. Is it weird that I prefer their logo and name based designs to the original designs?
Matt, the fella behind Thriving Ink, has noticed that his tees are too cheap for him to be able too afford to eat, so he’s had to raise his prices a bit, so tees start at $24 now, which isn’t too bad so I think we can’t begrudge him that, especially with all those massive advertising bills I send him.
All looks good to me, for some reason my favourite of the bunch is the hamburger tee, which probably has more to do with my love of burgers than it being a high quality design.
Wow, those guys in the picture are really happy to see that Yellow Black & White have released their latest series of tees!
They should be though, it’s a very strong release filled with cool tees (and a hoodie & sweatshirt). They’re rocking quite a few different design styles, so I can’t pigeonhole them, unless ‘good tees’ is enough of a pigeon hole for you guys. There’s a gallery filled with pretty people after the read more if you’d like to see what’s on offer before clicking through.

I know that looking at this jumper design you’d think that it was kind of stereotypically nerdy, but if you saw someone walking down the street looking like this, you’d probably take a picture and send it in to this website.
