Regular readers already know what I’m going to say, this design made me smile, and I think that it could be popular, but with that mockup instead of a real photo of the t-shirt being worn I am A LOT less likely to want to buy it. Still, it’s a funny enough concept for me to run even though it’s only in mocked up form.

Limited Edition 8-but Daft Punk Helmet Tee from Damascus Apparel – For the album release only.
Andy: Very nice indeed, I’d totally wear this.
I like it when infographics make my life easier, I don’t haveto waste my time awkwardly trying to re-write the press release I got since you guys have almost all the info you need in the image right there. You’ve got until June 1st to pre-order the shirt, pre-ordering automatically enters you into the contest to win the custom Kid Robot Foomi designed by Reactor-88, but even if you don’t win the Foomi at least you can console yourself with a really cool t-shirt.
You can find more details about the contest here.

The Manhattan Tee Line is based upon the concept of a rebus. A rebus uses pictures to represent words or parts of words. If you look at the spelling of this classic city you see three words that represent images. First you get man, then the hat and then the concept of tan and when putting these three images together you get the rebus Manhattan. This shirt is an iconic tee for one of the most iconic cites in America.
Andy: I’m not really sure how I feel about these tees, on the one hand there’s nothing really wrong with them them, but there just seems to be something a bit awkward about the grey design. Are people going to immediately get it or will it be one of those shirts that you constantly need to explain while you’re wearing it?
Givve are a charity t-shirt company along the same lines of Sevenly, picking a charity and selling designs specifically produced to help raise them some money. Givve are based in Omaha, Nebraska and at the moment they’re keeping it local with their charitable efforts, offering $6.55 from the sale of each of these shirts (and a couple of other designs on the site) to the Humane Society of Nebraska. It’s a good design (provided you like dogs, of course) and even if you’re out of Nebraska, as most people are, it’ll feel good to help out in another part of the world.

Anyone care to explain what the Mike & Wolf’s Fixing Co. design is a reference to, it’s totally lost on me and the top result for the phrase in Google is for the shirt itself. Favourite for the week is the Globetrotter University shirt, I’ve always enjoyed their cameos on Futurama. Big thumbs down to the Indiana Jones shirt, pretty weak.
Pretty nice little collection from Sleepy Dan, two solid tee designs and a well put together snapback. If you’re wondering what the white and blue design is at the bottom, that’s a print that you’ll get for free with your order from the new items (while stocks last), I’m not sure what form the print comes in, but hey, free is free.
Dan is a fair and honest guy, so it’s no surprise that the new items are priced reasonably too, at $26 each for the tees and the hat.
You know you’ve made it when you’re a question on a game show, it’s also interesting that it was a $2,500 question, since that suggests that the answer should be fairly common knowledge. I wonder if the woman got the answer right?

Surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders have been lumbered with the stereotypical viewpoint that they are out to cause mischief and mayhem, that they are scoundrels and dirtbags. What is often overlooked is that fact that they often take responsibility for the surroundings and environment.
Surfers protest for and protect their coastlines. Skateboarders look to preserve their culture and offer guidance and support to youths of the generation. Snowboarders aim to protect the climate and preserve their snow topped peaks whilst observing safety guidelines to prevent disaster through avalanche.
All three sports look to progress and advance through pushing boundaries and opening up new avenues to improve their skill sets, acting as pioneers. So it is with pride that we ironically wear the tags “Scoundrels and Dirtbags“.
Andy: Another prime example of needing to see the real shirt and not the mockup, because the nipples on the bottom tee look a bit silly in this form, but it could be a really cool tee in reality. Favourite of the bunch here for me is the purple surfing design.
Three gorgeous designs as usual at Sevenly to send $7 per item towards Love Without Boundaries, a charity that gives orphaned children with birth defects the surgery they need and help to give them a family in a permanent home.

Even though the last time I went on a bike it was this thing and I was walking funny for a week I think that my favourite of the selection this week at laFraise is the yellow cycling design. Really good week for them, lots of solid designs in there.
Is this ‘Hello Catbus’ at TeeFury?
One for the Minecraft fans at Shirt.Woot.
Pretty cool Transformers concept at RIPT.
Great artwork at DBH.

I was contacted recently by Jonathan Lax A.K.A. Yonil with some great news that he will be (now has) releasing a whole batch of new t-shirt designs. The first time we reviewed Yonil it was a walk in the park. A park that was weird, sunny and pretty damn good. I can quite confidently say that you will never be disappointed buying a t-shirt from Yonil, not only for the great t-shirt quality, designs and service but also for the designer himself, a very humble fellow indeed.
Yonil has great looking website backed up by strong and friendly branding and so it should considering he has a degree in visual communications. He does state on his website that he does not like “summer heat”. Now Londoners like myself might disagree but then again Yonil is based in Tel-Aviv, as I type this post it’s 33º over there and that’s not even the hottest it gets.
Now what is the hottest (see what I did there) is Yonil’s latest t-shirt designs. I was lucky enough to be sent this t-shirt below called ‘Roof’ to review. Yonil’s line style and texture execution reminds me of (and may very well be) monoprinting. Monoprinting is a process of creating an image by inking or painting a flat surface, then laying paper lightly on top and drawing on the back of the paper with a blunt-ish implement like burnishing tool or even a Biro pen. The paint/ink then adheres to the reverse side, giving you a lovely textured style. There are different forms but this is the one I learnt at college.
As you can see this design is two colours printed on yellow 100% combed cotton, custom cut T-shirt . The design has no base layer on white so the print is thin and the red is enhanced by the yellow fabric. As expected the t-shirt fits well and is soft, whatever the “custom cut” is, it works. Included in the freebies were some stickers and an unusual printed cardboard square which made me initially think that perhaps it was a ‘tab’ that you collected and once you collected a certain amount, you posted them back for a free t-shirt or something of that nature. Who knows, maybe that’s an idea I have thrown out there (hint hint).
Be sure to visit his quirky website to purchase one of these new tees for $27 and follow Yonil on his Facebook page here. Yonil is also giving the wonderful HYA readers a 15% discount so just enter HIDEYOARMZ at the checkout and get yourself some tees! Offer ends Friday 17th May 2013.
Here are the other 3 designs from the new collection.
