Inka Inka – The Fixie Review

by Ben_P on September 20, 2015

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a relatively knew brand called Inka Inka.

We have always loved unusual and wacky illustrated T shirts, so we thought… why not make our own? We spent a year travelling (partially in South America, hence the name!), gathering our design and brand ideas

It’s definitely evident that they have put a lot of passion into their brand with original artwork and complete new creative thought. Like I always say, it’s nice to see people doing something other than pop culture mash-ups.

I was lucky enough to receive ‘The Fixie’ which comes with his own background information and story that they write personally to send to you with your oder – which is a lovely personal touch to a product. Something that stands out when looking at indie brands versus established big brands.


Bernard tried his best not to panic but the thought of losing his pearl to Vicious Vic & the Mad Mice Gang was really quite disturbing!

You’ll have to purchase your own one to read the extended story. Along with the tee I received a slew of cards that they have manufactured (just a little taste of things to come from Inka Inka) which were surprisingly funny, random and well produced! I’d definitely rather buy these over Hallmark cards.


The design of this tee isn’t going to be to everyones tastes – and it doesn’t need to be. It’s got that fantastic blend of complete randomness but with perfect execution that somewhat reminds me of something I would expect in a Roald Dahl book. It’s further brought to life by the fantastic screen printing that has been done by hand. They’ve managed to fantastically deal with the problem most new brands encounter when they want to get their name out there. They’ve done this by subtly incorporating it into the design and not going for the in your face brand name print that a lot of people will do.

The quality of the tee isn’t perhaps the best that it could be – it’s definitely an area in which Inka Inka could improve. It feels a little bit stiff and slightly coarse on the skin however after sometime I do feel it will soften with enough washes. It isn’t something that necessarily detracts from wearing the tee but it does take a little while for you to forget about its feel. This is absolutely nothing that would detract me from purchasing the tee however – it is just an area in which they could potentially improve upon.

Overall I really like what Inka Inka have to offer and urge you all to check it out, and use the coupon code HYA to receive 15% off your order. Theres a lot on offer and something that would intrigue most people. Go and check them out!


Seventh.Ink just released a new design called “Skullduggery” that glows! The design is available on shirts and hoodies, both of which have custom tags and are printed with water based inks just like all Seventh.Ink shirts.

Seventh.Ink is also offering a 30% Off Sale through Labor Day with the code “BACKTOSCHOOL” through the site at The sale applies to ALL orders, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity to get some great gear and art at a solid price.

Andy: Be sure to click on the images of the Skullduggery design because they’re animated (but when the images get automatically reduced in size for the blog the animation gets broken).


Hello! We are a new pet-themed T-shirt company from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I currently have a house full of T-shirts and I would rather YOU have them. So, here is a coupon code for 10% off.


We are a two-person company. We designed our shirts with pet-lovers in mind, particularly those who work and volunteer to improve their lives; vets, techs, groomers, shelter & rescue employees and volunteers. If you know of any organizations of businesses that would resonate with these shirts, please forward them our info. We have established wholesale and consignment deals with rescue shelters and a couple local pet stores.

Andy: Not my style, but I can see how these would appeal to people who are crazy about their pets (which seems to be every pet owner). My usual complaint applies though, it would be nice to see the real shirts instead of mockups.

by Andy on August 29, 2015

His brains ooze out… You can see his bones and guts…He’s not dead… He is undead! The zombie emerges… from the grave and to your closet on this soft, comfortable, jet black tee shirt.

“Zombie Joey” is printed on a black, ring spun, cotton American Apparel shirt using soft off-white ink. HideYourArms readers, use the coupon codeHYA15” for 15% off your purchase.

The Ying Yang Tree of Life men’s organic tshirt is combined with a background image of an ultra deep field view of galaxies billions of light-years away taken by NASA’s Hubble Telescope.

Here’s what NASA had to say about their original image before Spaced Out Shop transformed it into our Ying Yang Tree of Life Design.

“This infrared view reveals galaxies far, far away that existed long, long ago. Taken by the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-object Spectrometer aboard NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the image is part of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field survey, the deepest portrait ever taken of the universe. This galaxy-studded view represents a “deep” core sample of the universe, cutting across billions of light-years..”

Get your universe on!

HYA fans can get $10 off this tshirt by using the code ‘HYAYING‘ which is valid until the end of August.

Andy: Cool concept, and many thanks for the coupon code!

Andy: You don’t even need a coupon code, nice!


Brooke Thomas, founder of Past & Prologue, launched the brand because she wanted to wear her Shakespeare fandom as often as she wears her film and TV fandoms.

Fact is: t-shirts are great, geeky t-shirts are the best kind, but literary geeky tees aren’t as ubiquitous as book worms would like.

Past & Prologue offers a variety of tees to suit every bard lover. We’ve got silly ones and serious ones, we’ve even got tote bags.

We hope you like our launch tees – follow us on twitter and facebook to be the first to hear when new lines come out! (@past_prologue /pastandprologue)

Use discount code BILLHASANEWHABERDASHER for 10% off.

Andy: Cool idea, as usual I would like to see the real thing instead of a mockup but I know I say that a lot, maybe I’m the only one that feels that way! Thanks for the submission!


In celebration of hitting our 10th birthday of our website, our entire collection of vintage clothing, including our vintage T shirts is 50% off Wednesday, June 24th through Saturday, June 27th. No coupon code is needed, everything is already marked down. Thanks to everyone who has supported our shop for the last decade!

Andy: The tees don’t really appeal to me personally, but I do like the idea of vintage clothing that has an actual meaning behind it instead of just stuff that is created to look vintage, and since it is often understandably pricey 50% off is a hell of a deal.


1cons_qtee2Since my last hands-on review of QTee, they asked me to do another one (which obviously I agreed to immediately!) This time they offered me to review some of their custom printed Converse – and if you know me, you know they are my preferred shoe. Unlike other companies I have reviewed, QTee let me design and pick out the print for my Converse right from their website, which is their specialty. And guess what? You can do that too! Everything from tees, to bags, to shoes, to hats (and even underwear) is customizable and it is so fun to explore, trust me.

cons5_qtee2cons1Ordering, shipping, + packaging: I scrolled through the many designs they offer; there are so many to choose from, but once I saw those Galaxy Print ones I was done with my search. I took a bit of time messing with the colors and the design until I got the perfect starry shoe that I wanted. The interface was easy to use and the ordering process could not have gone more smoothly and they arrived at my front door in about 3 business days – now that’s quick especially for custom printed shoes! Once they arrived, I tore that box wide open to reveal a classic Converse shoe-box inside (which I promptly tore open as well…) I must not forget to add, my order came with a lovely discount code for future purchases, as well as a cool QTee logo sticker – I do enjoy those small touches.

cons8_qteecons9_qtee2The Reveal: Once I got my hands (and feet) on my new shoes, I could not have been happier! The print – bright, beautiful, clear, and just the way I wanted them. (Remember you can click the images to see the print up close and personal.) I could have chose more outrageous or vibrant colors, which would have been interesting as well, but I am a simple girl so I chose shades of blue for my galaxy. Converse are a wonderful shoe from their quality to their comfort and they never go out of style, so I really have no complaints… well perhaps one, but it is only a small one, as QTee only offers low-tops and I am a high-top fan myself – perhaps the high-tops will be available in the future, but until then I am enjoying my low-tops to no end!

closeupRecap: It’s pretty obvious I love my new Galaxy Chucks from QTee, and I am a big fan of this company now and forever. I have had several people compliment my shoes, they just stick out in the best way, and I don’t hesitate for one second to let them know they can order from QTee AND customize themselves! (And to get a customized pair of shoes for $69.95 is a pretty good deal to me.) Also, with that said, QTee was nice enough to provide a coupon code for all you HYA readers! Just enter the code: HideYourArms15 at checkout and it will take 15% off your entire order – thank you QTee!

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 :)

QTee – Hands on Review + Coupon Code!

by Leah on April 7, 2015


It feels really good to be reviewing on HYA again and what a better way to start than with California based QTee! They are not like any other brand I have reviewed – first of all, QTee let ME pick out what tees I wanted to review and once I was on their site, I understood why… everything is customizable and they wanted me to have the full experience! You can pick from over 100 graphics – once you have chosen, you not only can pick what type of apparel you want it printed on, but you can also select colors for several elements of the graphic. Once I got a hang of the interface, I was playing around with several designs and having a lot of fun with it to be honest. (There is even a video on how to customize!)

A lot of QTee’s designs are text driven, but they also have a nice amount of layered and photo based designs, as well as ones with patterns, pocket designs, and simple graphics. So with that said, I decided to pick a patterned one and a text based one just to get an idea how both would turn out. How did I like them? Very much!

Ordering, shipping, + packaging: QTee promptly sent me a ‘thank you for your order’ email, and shortly after that they sent out tracking info, so no worries there. From start to finish, it did take about a week for each tee to get to me. They arrived in a standard t-shirt mailer – the white, tough plastic one – which QTee fancied up with a large, di-cut logo sticker (and FYI – it could be peeled off if you wanted to keep it!) With the t-shirts came a nice postcard with a discount code, as well as a vibrant logo sticker. Each t-shirt was wrapped in tissue paper and then inserted into a clear, plastic sleeve; so all in all the packaging was very professional, yet standard.


Unwrapping: As I pulled each t-shirt out from their packaging, my first reaction is to always feel them from top to bottom of course, and each tee was VERY soft to the touch and had a clean, freshly printed smell. Next I ran my hand over the print/ink and it was soft as well, not very thick or stiff and definitely printed evenly. I assumed they were DTG (direct to garment) printed, but I did not want to give you readers the wrong info, so I contacted QTee from their Website asking this, not expecting a reply for a day or so, but I got a reply almost instantly (which, come on, that is some great customer service) and my assumption was right, they print DTG. Once unwrapped, I saw each t-shirt had a “YOU’RE CUTE” logo tag attached, which made me smile – I adore details like that.


Now for the shirts themselves: The heather-gray, floral t-shirt is titled Freshly Cut Flowers and I chose a Hi-Lo Muscle Tank for this one since I have not owned something like that before! QTee describes it well, “This is our version of the perfect muscle tank made more flattering for the feminine figure. High side slits and oversize underarm openings.” The text based tee Life is Better in the Water, is printed on an Oversized Boyfriend Tee, “Our Oversized Boyfriend Tee has a loose fit, more coverage on the shoulders and overall relaxed, boyfriend style fit. Warning: Your boyfriend may get jealous. This style fits 1 to 2 sizes bigger.” Now silly me wants to complain that my tees fit a little too large to my liking, BUT silly me also did not read the descriptions or the size charts that were readily available – so that is totally my fault! I thought size Small would do the trick, but if I would have explored the description I would have chosen the XS option for both, so keep that in mind when you order. Each tee is thin, as you can see in the images, the white tee especially is a bit see-through, but I tend to like that especially when you wear a bikini or possibly a bandeaux underneath. (They are perfect for the beach too, hence why my photographer, Tabitha Payne, and I had a seaside photoshoot!) They also had that worn-in feeling which to me is the best – being a 52% cotton / 48% modal which gives them that comfortable feeling, but also don’t overlook the American Apparel tri-blends available as well (a personal favorite).


Recap: Overall, I am happy with my QTee purchases – print quality, t-shirt quality, customer service, and website interface are all top notch! They are not too pricey, especially since you get to customize your design – tees ranging from about $19.95 to $24.95. I know this brand is marketed to females, but any guys reading this should consider this a good place to buy the lady in your life a cool, customized t-shirt – you can say, “Hey, I designed it myself too!” Also, I know they are called QTEE, but tees are not the only thing they offer; there are sweatshirts, work-out apparel, bags, hats, Converse shoes, even underwear and collaborations as well. One more thing, QTee was nice enough to provide a coupon code for all you HYA readers! Just enter the code: HideYourArms15 at checkout and it will take 15% off your entire order – so needless to say, QTee is definitely worth checking out!

Thanks for reading,

Keep in touch with QTee:

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!


Usually when you see a deal like this offering a free tee when you buy something there is a catch, and that catch is that they’re trying to offload a bunch of tees that are bad sellers. Not the case here at all though, because you get to choose the tee you get for free. Just add a hoodie and tee to your shopping basket and enter the coupon code Baphomet to get your free t-shirt from Hate No Hate Apparel.

The offer lasts for a week and they told me about it yesterday, so let’s play it safe and say that you’ve got until midnight Wednesday to hop on board the deal train.
