Here’s something that I didn’t expect, Vespertine Machine, a brand that have been mentioned on HYA a lot, have changed their name to Raccoon Brand and seem to now sell clothing that only features raccoons. Is there anyone else that thinks this is quite a surprising change of direction for them?
The designs aren’t really to my personal taste, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with them. I’m genuinely interested to see where they take this since it does feel like such a departure from the previous iteration of the brand, can they really just keep making tees about Raccoons? Cats maybe, but Raccoons?
Last time we looked at Big Bad City they were yet another company going down the Kickstarter route to get their line off the ground. That was successfully completed and they now have shirts and some new designs up on general sale now. Shirts look good, it’s not a style that we see often on HYA, but they’re certainly interesting and wearable.
Shirts are £23 a piece plus postage, but HYA readers can get 10% off using the coupon code HIDEYOURARMS.
Manzoo is a new label from a couple of designers from Germany and Venezuela offering interesting tees and tank tops with a fun hand-drawn style. Keeping up with the by hand style they’re also printing all the tees themselves which I think is pretty neat, it’s not always the right solution for brands but I think if you’re doing one-colour prints on white tees then it’s perfectly fine and it’s nice to have that bit more of a connection between the artists and the customers.
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.
You might be wondering what, ‘re-inked’ means, basically it’s a cool way of saying that this classic Seventh.Ink design has been re-printed onto a new colorway, with it available now on goldenrod shirts and white tanks. I really like the goldenrod mixed with that reddish-brown print, looks great. Tees and tanks are both $25 each and available now in limited numbers.

Clothing and accessories that have a message behind them. Everything is designed and made by the owners — including the necklaces. Lots of attention to detail from the designs, to packaging, to the website.
Current collection is based on HOPE.
Should have a promotion coming up soon for Labor Day weekend.

Andy: Looking good, thanks for the submission.
I know that I’m showing you photos of a lot of tank tops here, but the designs are available in t-shirt form too. Come to think of it, I’m not sure if these designs are new, but I certainly can’t remember them so they might be, the lookbook photos are new at the very least!
Tees and tanks are $25 each and available now at Bluu Dreams.
Two cool new designs from Seventh.Ink based on the idea that “we humans tend to indulge in various “poisons” throughout our lives, both willingly and perhaps unwillingly. Our human nature makes us gravitate towards things that don’t always have our best interests in mind.. but nevertheless we continue to indulge in our favorite poisons.”
The designs aren’t just available as tee and tank tops, there’s also prints, engraved flasks, and engraved iPhone cases. Neat!
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.
Pipiripau have added a couple of designs to their store recently, both available as tees ($24) or tank tops ($22, male and female cuts). They’re both designs that use the brands name, but I think that they’re “logo tees done right”, which makes them less of a product for die-hard fans of the brand, and even casual visitors are likely to pick them up, which is a good balance to have.
Stay cool in the cool in the summer with your No Pain No Profit Tank!

With the weather as hot as it has been at the moment even I’m tempted to start wearing tank tops and just accept that people are going to see a hairy, hairy man walking around the Lake District.

When it comes to depressing things, murdering babies is very near the top of the list, but the reality is that in China baby girl’s are killed (or abandoned, or aborted) because of the one-child policy (to put it in a nutshell, girls earn less money, and so can’t help support the family later in life). This week, Sevenly are supporting All Girls Allowed, a charity that provides at-risk children with food, clothing and medical aid.
As usual, the designs are great, and $7 from each item goes to the charity.
