Seed of Life [SoL] – Double Review

by Ben_P on September 6, 2015

Jen and I had another opportunity to do a double review of Seed of Life – or SoL for ease – they’re an Israeli brand that appear to have been going strong for 5 years now, specialising in screen printed psychedelic clothing and accessories, for both men and women.

‘The art of S.O.L is influenced by mystical and spiritual experiences that have nurtured awareness and consciousness. These images evoke a message of a peaceful mind and a creative spirit, a message that unites us regardless of religion or culture.’

Off the bat I definitely like what they’re trying to convey, while I don’t think I personally am their target audience I can definitely appreciate the tranquility and spirituality behind it. 

We were pleased to receive a men’s t-shirt and a women’s vest and they came together nicely packaged with a free screen printed tote bag which was a pretty nice addition. I liked the tote bag so much and it perfectly fit my laptop in it so unfortunately it’s had a bit of wear and tear from being in my rucksack a large portion of the time.

Jen will obviously be reviewing the female side of things – as I’m sure it comes as no shock to any of you that I don’t have the slightest clue about women’s fashion or clothes.Design 1

I received the Peyote T-Shirt which you can purchase in 4 different colours – the amount of choice surprised me if I’m honest! Peyote for those that do not know is a psychoactive cactus so it’s quite cool for their shirts to have fitting names for the designs.

The feel of the shirt is fantastic – it’s 100% cotton, is soft and smooth on the skin and is lightweight but equally feels very durable and it’s all locally sourced and produced which I think is awesome; it’s safe to say that this is a good quality shirt. A low quality, uncomfortable feeling shirt is easy to identify but not having any irritation or even really knowing that the shirt is on you is a true testament to it’s quality – they’ve definitely nailed this down well. 

Peyote T-Shirt

I will admit that this design isn’t something that I would really go for, however I have received compliments on this design when wearing it and I can really appreciate the effort that goes into creating something so intricate – let alone screen printing it! I don’t even really know where to begin with trying to describe what I feel from the design. I do really like it but it’s just not something I would commonly wear – it makes me think of a dream catcher, or a mind map/thought processes and all sorts of imaginative things. That’s the real beauty of this in that it’s so open to interpretation and I can see how this definitely fits in with their ideologies. 

The design is screen printed both front and back, and has a slightly odd feel on the t-shirt because of the intricacy of the design. Running your hands over the design you can feel the individual screen printed dots. It also touts that it has UV Reactive Colours however I haven’t been in an area where I can actually see this – so I would definitely be quite interested to see how it looks. Perhaps having an example (if possible?) on the website would entice customers a little bit more. It’s definitely made me more curious and I’ll have to make sure I wear it the next time I go out anywhere that may have UV light!

We’ll move onto the female portion of the review now conducted by Jen.

As Ben said, I also got a top called the Uhloo Top.

The fabric was really soft and had a lovely handfeel but this is due to the amount of elastane that is clearly in the composition of the jersey, as you can unfortunately see via the shine on the tops. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t put people off as I feel the softness outweighs this aspect.

Uhloo Top

I like the rawness of the edges that have been tightly overlocked, but the brand should be aware that this may cause stretching. This is what happened on the hem of my top and therefore it started to curl up slightly. Some may say this is adds to the uniqueness but I feel differently. Perhaps a normal hem would be better – but I understand this may cause a cost implication if using different stitch techniques.

The print quality is good and almost mimics the technique used by American pop artist Lichtenstein, with dots creating the image – although a much simpler version, which I feel is quite fresh and interesting to see.

Design 2

The print image I was sent was the owl, personally I do not like it as it is not to my taste unfortunately and feel it is somewhat lost on the purple ground, however love the fact that most tops have a print on the front as well as the back much the same as Ben’s top.

The brand offer lots of other top designs that are simpler such as (coincidentally) the Peyote Top  and perhaps more the sort of item that I would go for, but definitely there is enough choice for everyone.

Overall a good product and I would definitely like to see more from them in the future.

Hey! It’s been a while since I did a Threadless blog, I’m hoping to get back into it, and what better excuse than a Memorial Day sale there are some really epic staple Threadless reprintes in the sale, some of the cream of the crop!

There were lots of changes to the the Threadless site a while back and I’m trying to find my way round the site again, it does seem a lot less personal and there isn’t as much personality as there used to be. There used to be efforts to made to put an interesting background relevant to the tee and now it’s just all grey and standardised. Nevertheless, the tees are still epic so here are some of my top pics from Threadless today!

Sushi by Benjamin Ang is one of my top favourite tee designs from Threadless, I have no idea how I have managed to not purchase it after adoring it for so long! I’m over the moon too that they had decided to print it onto a purple tank! It makes it even better! They have this in a range of sizes and types (men, women, kids) for $14 so grab a nommy related tee bargain! :)


Tees like this are why I am devastated I haven’t been on Threadless for so long, I loved Big Hero 6 so much, by far one of the best kid’s movies that has been out in a long while. One of the highlights of the trailer is when Baymax is stroking Mochi, Baymax has a low battery and sounds drunk! So funny. There is a tee that covers this! I really LOVE Hairy Baby by Samantha Germaine Sim.


If I have blogged this tee once, I have blogged it a thousand times. When my mental filing cabinet things of Threadless, I instantly thing of Mister Mittens’ Big Adventure by Joe Van Wetering! Absolute classic, conversation starter, eye catcher. Every think a person could want in a tee. Poor availability for women, but fully in stock for men, tee bargain for $14! There are a selection of Big Hero 6 tees so it’s well worth dropping by for a rummage.


Sticking with the space theme, Threadless designers always seem to still manage to come up with brand new super funky space related designs. I know my husband would love Planet System by Bernhard Trunkle (epic name!).  I love tees where they are mostly black with a massive pop of colour right on the chest!


If you fancy something a bit more serious there is plenty of choice too, I normally lean more towards the cute end of the Threadless scale. Astronomical by Wayne Struwig and Andrew G Hobbs, has much more a ‘normal’ or ‘high street’ feel!


Back to space again because I was totally taken with all the gorgeous colours on the navy tee. You Are My Universe by ilovedoodle is a super romantic twist on the solar system by depicting them as pretty awesome balloons. I think this tee has quite a feminine feel to it so it might have been cool to see it on a more girly colour! I’d absolutely wear this though, and I’d go for the black scoop neck in girly fit! :)


Lastly but not leastly and mostly because it’s a mere $7.95, full availability for men and only 2xl for women, I proper love the monotone print on the blue tee with this design of a pretty angry Cruella DeVille, Puppy Love by Paul Tippett could be a great last minute bargain fling into Threadless basket!


Hope people enjoy having a rummage in the Threadless Memorial sale! I’ve had a nice little wander this morning :)

Feminist Apparel – Blog and Review

by DeeHYA on March 2, 2015

Last year I decided to treat myself to a tee from amazing website Feminist Apparel whose designs are designed to raise awareness and create a stir about a range of feminist issues.

Some of the designs are designed with an element of shock value to get the message across. Last year there were some pretty viral videos of little girls dropping the f-bomb in the name of feminism reeling off some quite scary statistics about equal pay, domestic violence and sexual violence.

I particularly like this ‘Feminist as Fuck’ tee!


As a survivor of sexual violence I find the poor conviction rate of rapists and the way in which victims are treated by the police, men and at times other women absolutely shocking. There should be a huge amount of education men and boys that a ‘No’ means no! I chose this ‘Don’t (get) Rape(d)’ tanks for myself, it’s eye-catching and gets the message over without being over complicated.


I generally prefer a tank as I normally wear a long sleeved tee underneath to cover my bulky arms. The quality of this is spot on, and the print was good but to be honest I think with this design on the grey it might look quite cool if it faded a little.

I love that Feminist Apparel use an element of humour to get across their message, I think this is an important point of making their tees individual and memorable. I did a bit of a snarf when I saw this ‘Baby Got Books’ one :)


The tees are $29.95 but I have to say I still get discount codes regularly, infact if you sign up to their newsletter now you can get 15% off. Shipping to the UK was ok too, it was about $12 which I think is reasonable.

Any feminist issue that you have encountered or have beef with you will be able to find a tee to convey this. It’s not just all for the ladies either, there are guys and kids t-shirts too!


EFY Clothing was born out of a healthy mix of fascination and frustration. Fascination with the beauty and diversity of the planet we live on and frustration with the fact that this beauty and diversity were not being reflected by most casualwear brands out there.

The way we see it the bright, lively and beautifully unique people that we all are deserve clothing that are just that.

Don’t wear boring, you deserve better

We ship worldwide free of charge

Andy: You wouldn’t catch me wearing them, but then again I am 30 and the last time I went to a rave was…. 6 months ago (but that was a blip in a relatively quiet social life) so clearly I am not their target demographic, but I know there are lots of people that will wear something like this and they’re certainly presenting it pretty well.


Breaking Bad Themed Apparel

by Andy on February 3, 2015

Breaking Bad – arguably one of the most popular and loved shows around the globe!
I’m Darragh Cooney, a 16 year old Graphic Design student from London, UK and I have designed some unique tees and jumpers for Breaking Bad! Check them out?!

Andy: I don’t want to be too harsh here, because I’m 30 and Darragh is 16 and I know I didn’t have these kind of skill at his age. At the same time though, I don’t think that this work is original enough to be trying to sell it, if someone at AMC saw it they’ve fire off a DMCA takedown to DBH and the design would be gone. This kind of thing is good for learning and gaining new skills but it might not be a good idea to make it available for purchase.


Keet Warrin | Gem Of The City

by Andy on August 19, 2014

My name is Dane Deaner and I design and run Keet Warrin. Keet Warrin is a new Clothing company I have been working on since the beginning of the year. I like to call it a clean cut street style. I launched with Tank Tops and T-Shirts, but there is much more to come.

Another thing I do with Keet Warrin is something I like to call Gem Of The City. Gem of the City is a blog style page that features different artists, musicians, photographers, etc. It pays respect to certain people around Los Angeles and neighboring cities that are doing remarkable things.

We launched just a week ago and I would like to share Keet Warrin with you.

Thank you for your time!

Andy: Pretty cool!


Black Spot Apparel

by Andy on August 11, 2014

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.


On August 1st, Tfabrand from Stuttgart, Germany released their 4th Drop “Urban City Vandals” 3 new Designs on 8 different soft goods.

Andy: Very nicely done, thanks for the submission!


In Vision Concept apparel, we are aiming to bring a different perspective to street art and clothing. In july, we launched 13 new styles for both men and women. All designs made from original hand drawn designs. Limited quantities only.

Andy: Nice, thanks for the submission.


These were actually released almost a month ago, but I’ve had a bit of a crazy month with lots of trips away which has unsettled the posting schedule. Still, they looked good on release and they look good now.

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.

Fresh Summer collection from Milk

by Andy on July 22, 2014

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.

Deep Antiquity partners with American manufacturers and local businesses to produce a line of quality garments and accessories.

Andy: Looks good, thanks a lot for the submission!
