Piekuo ‘Bat’ – Review

by Ben_P on June 28, 2015

Recently I got the opportunity to review Pieukuo. I was pleasantly surprised when receiving the package. It was the little additions to the T-shirt that makes this new starter seem more like an established brand. They have customised tape for their packaging, lovely information card as well. It’s definitely a very professional set up they have going, the website, packaging and final product all make this brand into someone to definitely keep on your radar.

IMG_2563 

Going into the packaging, it was simple nothing too extravagant in terms of what it was actually delivered in a simple brown box. I can’t really fault anyone for not splashing out on over the top packaging because it’s one of those things that you end up tearing through and discarding anyway. I really thought the tape was a nice little touch as I’ve already mentioned as it definitely puts a personal touch onto a plain packaging.

On opening parcel I was greeted by a clear plastic bag protecting the garment and inside with it was a descriptive card. It’s these little things that all add up to creating a very professional and established look for such a young brand.

IMG_2566 

First off the design. I really like this design, it’s got a certain appeal that I can’t quite portray into words very eloquently, it reminds me of an old school 8-Bit video game enemy, It certainly appeals a lot to me at least! It’s again very nice that it isn’t a pop culture mashup thrown together that with a tenuous link – so it certainly gets a few little extra points on that side from me.

I do admit that one negative I had about the t-shirt to start with was that it seemed a tad too tight, the neck is very tight and I felt that across the chest felt slightly too tight for a medium shirt however I was pleasantly surprised because I was under the assumption this would be an uncomfortable shirt to wear for extended periods of time – it wasn’t. If you’re thinking of buying a shirt from these guys just be aware that the neck lines are tighter than average – which isn’t a negative aspect but I suppose I’m used to having a bit of wiggle room with my t-shirts and thats a personal preference. 

IMG_3132

The feel of the shirt is nice, it’s soft and feels very durable. The print as well is 2 colour screen print that has so far shown absolutely no signs of cracking, it definitely feels like it will last a long time, the one down side of this print is that it feels slightly heavy on the shirt and to the touch isn’t the nicest of prints – but really its a welcome trade off to have this image stay fresh looking for longer. The price of the Bat is £15 which I feel for all of what they’ve put into the design and overall experience is a very reasonable price.

Just a note that this design comes both as a T-Shirt and as a Sweat. Just incase one bat isn’t enough why not get both!

Overall I’m really impressed with Piekuo – they’re a relatively new brand in the grand scheme of things and the whole product from start to finish just looks fantastic, the website is beautifully design and they’ve really got a fantastic functioning website in my eyes. The designs are varied and they’re certainly unique. You’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd with anything from their site

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! :)

sushitee

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.

hairybaby

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.

mistermittens

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!

planettee

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!

astronomicaltee

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! :)

universetee

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!

deville

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

qtee3_text

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.

qtee_sticker

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.

qtee_tag

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).

qtee2_floralqtee3_floralqtee4_floralqtee2_textqtee5_textqtee7_text

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,
Leah

Bergies Sock Review!

by Ben_P on April 1, 2015

‘At Bergies™ we are determined to bring you the most awesome options from across the globe in socks, slippers and other really cool stuff. From socks with cats (we LOVE cats), to items for those with sensitive feet, to the Worlds Softest slippers – we’ve got something for everyone!’

So I’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing a whole treasure trove of socks that were delivered by Bergies who class themselves as some what of a Sockurator. A self proclaimed, might I add amazing, title that is hard to deny. They quite literally may be the holy grail of socks. They stock a whopping 21 different branded socks. If I’m quite honest I didn’t even think there would be that many brands out there! They also have a few products of their own creation geared mainly towards keeping little ones feet nice and snug. IMG_1657

IMG_1670

Now I’m somewhat of a fussy sock buyer, so not all of the socks that I received were quite to my liking. You’ll more likely find me bare foot than wearing socks, however that’s not to say that any of these socks are bad, but not quite to my fussy foot requirements as you will read. The one great thing about socks I find though is the fact you can pretty much get away with wearing what ever the hell you like, and it leaves a great deal of creativity for sock manufacturers. Most people don’t really care what they put on their feet so you can be as outlandish as you like, which is awesome. Bergies really have a wide curated selection of socks to satisfy any persons sock desires.

IMG_1667

Burger Socks

I love the design of this one, it’s simplistic and comical at the same time. It definitely however is a design that’s well suited for socks, if it was anything else but socks I really don’t think I’d wear it. I most certainly wouldn’t go around wearing a burger t-shirt that’s for sure! The socks themselves are comfortable enough, not the most comfortable out of all of them. They feel slightly restricting on my feet. I’m a size 10 UK which is roughly 10.5 in US so I fit nicely in the middle of the one size range for these socks, I however would chalk this down to personal preference as I’m not a huge fan of a tighter fit for socks, which these definitely fall into the category of ever so slightly. Perhaps having various sizes of socks would improve this as trying to create a one size fits all sock for sizes 7-13 is probably a difficult feat! All of this said once I get over the initial tightness of the sock I can comfortably wear these for a day with no problems.

IMG_1666

Gangsta Socks

I was surprised to find that these were my favourite socks. I don’t know whether it’s the hipster-esque irony of wearing something that says gangsta on my feet hilarious or just the fact that these socks are probably the most comfortable out of all of the socks I received. The design is simple, it literally just says gangsta down the side of the sock. I can’t really say it’s the most amazing design out there but it makes me chuckle and I have a good laugh wearing them. Surprisingly as well, they’re fantastic for running, it must be to do with the cushioned soles to the them but I’ve worn them a few times while running now and they’re probably my go to sock for that activity now. Again it’s a 1 size fits all sock design and this time round it fits me perfectly and doesn’t feel a restrictive as the Burger Socks. I’d definitely be happy with purchasing these ones myself.

IMG_1665

Disrupted Stripe

The design of this sock would surely be welcome in any persons wardrobe, probably the most ‘normal’ sock out of the bunch that would be unlikely to get you any odd stares, unlike perhaps burgers on your feet! If you’re looking for a nice well designed sock this one is probably for you. I was expecting it to be quite uncomfortable to be honest, it looked like it was very small for my feet. I was pleasantly surprised that it just about fit quite well, it’s slightly snug but when I was walking around and doing my general day to day things it didn’t feel uncomfortable. However when I think about the sock on my foot it is just a tad too tight. I have to pull out the end of the sock ever so slightly making the heel not match up quite perfectly, however I can’t really fault them for this. As you can imagine I’m a bit of a fussy sock wearer so take my criticisms with a pinch of salt, I could wear this sock for the day and get on perfectly well with it but I think I could do with it for my own personal preference to be slightly larger.

IMG_1668

Mohawk (Mr T!)

I’ll start off by saying. I love this design, it’s awesome. I mean what isn’t to like? For a design it is my favourite because it’s just hilarious however, as a sock it’s not so good. The sock doesn’t really have any shape to it, they came flat, most socks will change direction at the heel. These lie perfectly flat ton the ground, the actual formation of the sock is very uncomfortable and just seems like two pieces of fabric that have been sewn round the edges so your toes uncomfortably hit seam right at the end of the sock opposed to being on top of your toes. The design as well suffers from the construction of the sock, because it is a one size fits all the image distorts and has bad ‘grinning’ when actually worn, which makes the actual design on the sock a tad to make out. I really wish I could have given these socks a better review but to me they’re more of a jokey gimmick sock to give someone than an actual functioning one. I think you could maybe get away with wearing this sock as more of an in-house slipper alternative but for day-to-day wear I found it rather annoying unfortunately.

IMG_1664

Great Waves

Great Waves Smaller Sock

When trying out these socks it took me a little while to get used to them, annoyingly you can’t really just pull the socks on you have to work them slowly up the foot which was quite infuriating. I found that one of the socks in particular had a point where you pulled the sock up to and it got caught on your heel, there were a couple of threads going across the heel line (presumably to keep the heel shape) that just felt like it would tear a hole in the sock. Perhaps this is a slight manufacturing fault on this particular sock because the other one wasn’t as irritating to pull on – although it still was a bit problematic. Once I had the sock on it was very comfortable and felt lovely on my foot, they weren’t overly tight which was a bonus for me. The design is nice, I can’t really give them much credit for it because it obviously isn’t an original design – however if you fancy a bit of wearable art for your feet it is very cool. I was a bit confused on their website initially as they had two of the same design. I spoke to the guys over at Bergies and the manufacturer actually charges a slightly higher price for the bigger sock due to the extra fabric used. It’s also got a slight different composition, but it’s very marginal so I’m not sure whether that would contribute to the price change. Luckily it isn’t too steep it’s about $3 difference but it may be a bit off putting for some. Personally I think it is a bit daft to have different sizes of socks being priced differently for the exact same design, but I’m not holding that against Bergies but more at the manufacturer.

IMG_1663

Shark Attack

These are probably tied for my favourite alongside the gangsta socks. They’re a fantastic all round sock, comfortable, ease to put on, awesome design that I really like and I really don’t have any problems with them at all. I’ve worn them the most out of all of the socks and they’re just a perfect fit for me! I’m honestly at words as to what to say really regarding them because I can’t think of anything negative to say.

Overall I really like what Bergies are doing, I must admit though I’m a bit of a cheap skate when it comes to socks and usually just buy what ever is on offer, but these are a really nice collection to my socks now and it is fun to wear socks with awesome designs on! If you’re in the market for some new socks definitely check them out.

New Delivery From Milk

by Ben_P on March 23, 2015

Fresh in from the Milk Man. Milk UK have their new line out now!

Coming from our success of our summer14 line we have managed to step up the garments even further in this release, from cut and sew pieces, to experimenting with textures and embellishments. Here is a brief breakdown of the collection:

Script Hood- Since releasing it 2014 and having it sell out in 3 weeks we had to bring this garment back in 2 colourways! (Heather Grey/Black x Mint Choc Chip) The also pullover hoodie features our custom milk bottle drawstring ends which caught a lot of attention last year.

College Dropout Varsity- Our first varsity in Navy/Burgundy. Features an embroidered ‘milk script’ patch along with a textured ‘Drop’ chenille patch, typically seen on varsity jackets.

Lost Boy Crew- A cut and sewn 3 colour crewneck featuring a torso print and contrasting cuffs

Downtown button up: A cut and sewn flannel ‘skater fit’ shirt featuring a contrasting black pocket with a large pocket print.

Ben : I’m big fan of Milk and have been for a little while now. I’ve actually purchased some of their stuff before and I can say it’s well worth it. The presentation of the delivery and finished product is just awesome. It’s hard to believe that they’re a relatively new brand in the grand scheme of things because their presentation is just spot on. The garments come packaged in old milk cartons which is a cool little touch, and everything features a nice little tag and really ties all of their products together with that professionalism you don’t necessarily see so early on. I’ve actually got one of their early on pocket tees, which while the quality of the shirt wasn’t the best out there, the whole feel of it was still very awesome – However having a chat to Matty over at Milk he assures me their quality has been ramped up a lot!

Anyway on to the actual new release. I’m a personal big fan of the simple Milk hoodie, the font is just awesome and mainly overall I love it for the draw strings (I know such a stupid reason to love a hoodie but who cares). I also particularly like the button up shirt with contrasting pocket, it’s simple and cool and I can see it appealing to a wide range of people. I’m not a huge fan personally of the Missing Crew Neck or the Varsity Jacket personally but that’s just not fitting with my tastes. I love the idea behind the Missing one however and it does make me chuckle but I just wouldn’t wear it (I don’t think I’ve ever worn an actual sweat shirt so I think that’s what puts me off a tad). The Varsity jacket is cool but again I’m letting my personal tastes affect my opinion here I just don’t see myself wearing it, it looks pretty awesome though with the custom patches on the left breast, the Milk drop emblem looks a tad rough around the edges close up on the images but that’s a manufacturing fault and not a reflection really upon their design and it’s only very minor areas where there seems to be a loss of colour.

Overall it’s a very strong lineup and there is sure to be something that will fit most peoples tastes out there, and definitely check out the rest of their products as they have some very well priced clothes! What do you guys think to their new line? Let us know!

In A galaxy far, far away… fanboys and girls clashed about which side is better.
With Paleboys Being a fan of both sides, we decided to unite and bring the two sides together.

These are the t-shirts you’re looking for. Come join some of your favourite geek loves together with Paleboys latest “Spock Wars” Tee.
Now available as both men’s and ladies Tees, on the smoothest and softest t-shirt you’ll ever wear. Made of fine jersey, it has a durable, vintage feel.

So live long and prosper and check them out here: http://paleboys.co.za/product/spock-wars/

Andy: I’ve never really understood why people argue about whether Star Wars or Star Trek is better, as if you’re only allowed to like one of them. I can’t help but feel it’s poor timing to release something Spock related now without any kind of charity angle attached to it.

New designs at Ian Leino.

by Ben_P on March 3, 2015

Ghosts_m_model
Banana_w_model
banana-detail
“May the Ghosts be With You?” re-imagines the Force ghosts from the original Star Wars trilogy as the ‘hitchhiking ghosts’ from the Haunted Mansion attraction, and even includes a custom background pattern based on the classic wallpaper.
“Banana Nana” is my attempt to express the pure joy of being able to dress up like one of your favorite characters, forget about your daily life for a brief time and to almost believe that you actually ARE that character. It’s a joy known by children and cosplayers everywhere!
As always, shirts are screen printed locally in Asheville, NC on American Apparel 100% soft jersey cotton shirts.
Ben : Overall these designs are clean, well illustrated and look really good on the tees (at least from the product shots!), screen printed on American Apparel as well it’s hard to go wrong with the quality! First off May The Ghosts Be With You, I have absolutely no idea what it is mashed up with… at all… I couldn’t even hazard a guess – but it’s something to do with a theme park ride and obviously Star Wars! Anyone want to enlighten me to it because I just don’t know.
While I don’t necessarily like the design because over the years I’ve slightly grown irritated by the constant pop culture mash up of tees, I can’t really fault them for doing what they love – I’m also sure it’ll be a hit with someone out there, but for me I wouldn’t personally wear it. That said don’t let my opinion put you off, definitely check it out for yourselves! I will say however that I love the colours and the background looks fantastic.

The second tee Banana-nana, I get this one more and I’m quite a fan of Despicable Me so I must admit it tickled me, if I had to choose I’d wear this one over the Star Wars one. The way it’s designed is fantastic, the colours look amazingly vibrant and the style is very comic book-esque as you can see above. The only thing that might let it down is the fact that there are a lot of Despicable Me tees out there, but this is definitely one of the nicer and well presented ones I’ve seen. 

If neither of these take your fancy I’m sure you will find something else that you’ll enjoy over at Ian Leino, so head on over and check it out!

The Illustrated Mind is an independent t-shirt line based in Brighton that seeks to showcase the best in up and coming illustration via the most fashionable means… We have been commissioning and releasing designs since 2011 and have worked with the likes of Jack Teagle, Tom Sewell, Jiro Bevis, Ed Cheverton, Jon Boam and Gordon Holden to name but a few. Our aim each season is to develop a cohesive collection of illustrated t-shirts styled around a loosely devised theme. So we seek out the best and most notorious artists to collaborate with and whose work has caught our eye and made us think they’re awesome, we hope you agree!

Ben : I’m quite liking what The Illustrated Mind have gone for here. The style reminds me of the widely copied David Shrigley. I’m definitely liking the style, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the large text, image, large text format. I liken the art style very much in the bracket of – badly drawn things done by good artists. You can clearly see the talent but I just love the fact it’s so rough around the edges, if they looked too neat and too clean I think this whole range would lose it’s appeal. I must admit though, I have no idea if the space sharman is a reference to anything – anyone care to enlighten me? Anyway – go check ‘em out!

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!

feministas

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.

IMG_6973

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 :)

baby-got-books-white-ladies-tee_1024x1024

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!

Nicky Rockets is a t-shirt designer from the UK who specialises in designs dedicated to those super curvy women who rock his world.

Most of our designs focus around the intergalactic fearless explorer Curverella and her Killer Curves, but for Spring 2015 we are bringing our awesome pets into the fold, with the donut wearing ‘Plumpy Paws’ and the Ziggy Stardust obsessed Pug ‘Mister Truffles’.

The brand already has a cult following with sassy plus size chicks, selling regularly around the globe and featuring in numerous magazines and blogs.

Our styles include round neck, slash neck and lady fit and sizes run from small to 5XL.

Andy: Well designed, well photographed and with a clear vision, there’s an awful lot here to like. I do question the need for a splash page on the website (‘click to enter’) since it doesn’t really add anything to the experience and puts a click between you and the the shop which isn’t a good idea in the ecommerce world, but that’s a minor quibble and largely an issue of choice for them.

Villain X Shirts

by Andy on February 19, 2015



Villain X Shirts is a exciting line of t-shirts for guys and girls based on villains from every area of pop culture. Our shirt designs are devoted to the Villains of every aspect HORROR, SCI-FI, COMICS, VIDEO GAMES, TV, etc

WEBSITE:
www.villainxshirts.com

T-SHIRT SIZES AND COST
mens S-XL – $20 – 2XL-5XL – $23
womens S-XL – $20

Andy: I’m not a lawyer, but I don’t know how long they’ll be able to get away with this. As far as I can tell all the designs in the images supplied and on their site are just hand-drawn versions of images that aren’t in the public domain, just still released from films or promo images. In some cases the images don’t look hand-drawn at all, they may have just had a filter or action applied to them in Photoshop. They look like the kind of thing that I am fairly sure you could mistake for being merchandise, and so unless they know something I don’t I worry they’re skating on thin ice.

Geeks and children of the 80’s with children of their own, we made some onesies and toddler tees for your nerdy family. We just launched our brand last month with our first line of everyday baby cosplay pieces. Each garment is printed vibrantly on all sides and is baby-soft. Come check us out at nerdywithchildren.com. Bigger kid sizes coming next month.

Andy: Very cute, I’m sure these will do well.

After teaming up with a new artist, Meaghan Fox, we’re ready to reveal the first new design: Star Trek and Monty Python mash-up. The USS Silly Walks.

Andy: I know it’s a pointless endeavour to try and work out why a mashup is a mashup, but wouldn’t the “USS something” be a space ship, and Willy Walks were a Ministry, so the two things don’t really go together? Or perhaps there’s something more to this that I’m missing.

WEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ON YOUR CHEST

*Our PN PUTIN T SHIRT is interesting in the light of a recent BBC newscast earlier this week: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-28745554

Our focus is direct ONLINE SALES via our website, marketing our brand into UK/US (East and West Coast)/JAPAN and CHINA. We are intending to wholesale through some selected retailers in the UK and Internationally.

PUBLIC NUISANCE creates iconic, classic and timeless designs and operate on the LESS IS MORE principle. We are launching with 6 designs on a unisex T shirt, using black and white high quality t shirts and our target market is Males/Females aged 18-34.

PUBLIC NUISANCE is a hybrid between A Streetwear T shirt and Art. All T shirts designs come in a limited print run too.

PUBLIC NUISANCE draws on street culture, music, politics, classic iconic 20th/21st century imagery and art as its main influencers for our messages and designs.

Andy: Ahhhh, nothing bad ever happened making fun of Putin. Oh, and I know it says August in one of the photos but if you go to their site it does say September.

Great news everybody! Jack of all Trades just released some awesome new designs, part of the Extreme Designs Collection.

They have gone the extra mile to include a variety of amazing printing techniques to the art. Parts of Batman, Spider-Man and Superman are printed with distressed shimmer Ink and parts of the paint splatters have been printed with puff ink to mimic the effect of actual paint being splattered on the shirt!

Check them out and let us know what you think!

Andy: Pretty damn badass!
