A whole load of new stuff from SMPLFD

by Andy on September 3, 2013

Big release to finish off SMPLFD‘s Summer range, and that people are talking about how Summer is over now shows that I’m a little but late in getting this posted, but I think there’s still enough sun left that we might get a few more tank top days before thicker clothing is needed. If anything takes your fancy don’t forget to use the coupon code HYA15 to get 15% off your order.


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.

Anchored Apparel [Submitted]

by Andy on August 27, 2013

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.

When you wear Anchored Apparel, you can know that you are supporting an entire community of people who are committed to the same values as you. When you wear Anchored Apparel, you can know that the community supports you, too.

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.


Tees and Tanks from new UK brand My Yard

by Andy on August 2, 2013

I don’t want to sound like a shut in when I say this, but when you work from home, and out of your window there’s just fields and trees, you don’t see that many people, so it’s easy for me to forget what people actually wear in the UK. When I was on holiday I got a really good impression of what ‘young people’ and I have to use that term because I just don’t wear the same stuff as the youth of today, are wearing, and it was a lot like the stuff from My Yard. All over prints are big right now, and usually I’m not a fan, but there seems to be a trend at the moment of making all-over pieces that are a bit more subtle and understand, and I think that the muted colour palettes at My Yard do make their designs a lot more appealing to me. They’ve got some interesting stuff (I’ve inlcuded everything in their store above) and it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with in the future.


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!

The No Pain No Profit Motto: “No matter how painful, hardwork brings great rewards, which are not without profit.”

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.

Costiness=$24.99 Buy it at Sacer & Savive


Not a massive release from Portuguese brand Black Thunder for this Summer collection, just a couple of designs on tees and tank tops (€15 each), a tote bag (€5) and a 5 panel hat (€17). At least it’s all killer and no filler with two very wearable designs, and the lookbook ladies do a good job of showing them off to their full potential.


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.


This latest collection from Small Victory hasn’t actually been released yet, it’s going live later this month, but I wanted to give you guys the heads up since there’s some really interesting stuff in here that’s a bit of a departure from the norm for Small Victory. It’s quite cool to see an all-over print shirt (£22) that isn’t incredibly loud, usually they’re the kind of thing that I wouldn’t wear, but something like this seems to be a touch more classy and understated than other all-over designs I’ve seen.


Paradox Clothing are a new UK brand that launched recently with a could of tee designs, a couple of vests, and of course some tie dye shirts that seem to be all the rage with people that are younger and cooler than me (I just can’t get away with that kind of thing), and a couple of hat styles too in various colours. It’s a solid start with some decent crests, but I would like to see them branching out to their own site rather than being a page on the website of a jewellery company, it would give them a much better platform for growing the brand, and hopefully getting their own site is in the pipeline.


Not that rape gets mentioned a lot on HYA, but I think any other time it’s been mentioned has been with my disgust at an offensive t-shirt design, so when I saw that Sevenly were supporting Sheltering Wings (a rape support charity) this week I was curious to see how they would deal with it sensitively. Well, I don’t know what the deer or the phoenix have to do with the charity but they are certainly nice designs that are very wearable. I don’t know if I should delve into it too much, but is a boxing themed design really appropriate? It looks cool, but it does take the ‘fight for their lives’ tagline and make it seem like physical violence is the answer, which seems like an unlikely message for a charity to be putting out there.


I had no idea who Ashley Vee was until I saw these tees, I didn’t really know about the culture that surrounded models from the import car tuning scene. She’s hot though, so I’m not complaining that she’s in these promo photos for the latest release from Import Bible, the import car obsessed t-shirt company.

With me not being part of the import scene some of the references in the designs are lost on me, but I do recognise that the shirts look really good, and if a guy like me that’s not too bothered about bhp and drifting around corners wants to wear them that can only be a good sign.

Check out the whole collection here.

I’m really late posting this weeks designs from Sevenly, but you’ve still got a few days to pick something up, and this week $7 from each item will be going to Lettercase, a charity that helps provide information to support to parents who are expecting a baby with Down Syndrome. The other big news at Sevenly is that the guy with a long, flowing mane of hair (which I think is just tied back in the shot above) has shaved off his magnificent mustache!


Summer 2013 by Live Fast Stay Young

by Andy on June 27, 2013

Tie-dye is one of those trends that make me realise that I am older than most of the people I write about, or possibly just not as influenced by trends, and probably just not as cool. I’ve got nothing against tie-dye shirts, I actually quite respect people that have the confidence to wear something so bright and flashy, but they’re just not for me. Impressive Summer collection from Live Fast Stay Young though, and it’s not all tie-dye so there’s plenty of stuff here to keep me happy, especially those subtle pocket tees. It’s $19.99 for a tank top, $22.99 / $23.99 for a tee, $26.99 for a pocket tee and they’re all available now.


I wish that I had cool friends and a rooftop to use for a photoshoot. Really cool lookbook images and video, the tees ain’t half bad either. Tees are £24/25 each, the vest is £20, and they’re all available now.
