4 wide web 480x180 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

I love getting the opportunity to review fab small companies and it’s even better when it’s for an awesome local company! The lady who runs it is genuinely lovely and even makes an awesome charity tee too.

Firstly the tees centre around the company name ‘Brave & the Bold’! All the tees feature this memorable and catchy slogan and I like that this all flows within the brand. It makes the line noticeable, I also quite like sometimes wearing tees similar to my partner but not quite the same and I think this is a cute way round it.

As with lots of companies there are a few less girly fit tees than man fit ones. Although I don’t feel that’s an issue so much anymore, on the high street there are a lot more loose fit tees for girls, probably because we wear so many leggings now. I know I feel better when I have my bottom covered up. The girly fit tees I got to test out were ladies ‘Brave Logo T-shirt‘ and ‘Fearless T-shirt‘. I liked them both, they were extremely comfortable, and both washed extremely well. I’d say they are a standard fit, I’m a bit chested UK12 and a Medium was fine for me. I personal favourite was the ‘Fearless’ on, I particularly liked the grey tee and I think it just felt a bit more sporty. The print looks extremely light on the bottom image but I think it is mostly because it was such a bright day when I shot in them!

NRG 4233 480x318 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

The gentlemen’s t-shirts that my husband shot in were ‘Brave Wings T-shirt‘ and the ‘Arrows T-shirt‘. My husband normally wears a large because he’s got a bit of a belly and I think these were also a standard fit. The feel of them were thick, but not too thick, and just super soft. I’ve only washed the red ‘Wings‘ one but the print is perfect and it actually feels even softer after a wash. I can already tell that the Wings one is going to be one of husband’s new favourite tees!

The charity tee is called the ‘Ross‘ t-shirt, this tee is in memory of a strong, brave, young man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the far too young age of 32. 20% of the sales from this t-shirt go to Cancer Research UK. I’m sure pretty much most of those reading this blog will have been affected by cancer at some point so this is the chance to get lovely tee and support an excellent cause. I think this khaki colour really works well to set the ‘Ross‘ see apart from all the rest.

Finally, because I really love the summery colours, and it brings about the illusion of an early summer, I really love the Limited Edition Bahama T-shirt! It’s basically a beach in a t-shirt, I think this would look super cute just with some denim shorts!

bahamabold 1024x1024 Brave & The Bold Apparel Review : WearBrave http://www.wearbrave.com/

I love companies like this with original ideas and not scared to try out ideas like the Bahama tee! Highly recommend dropping this company a ‘like’ or a ‘follow’! Give them a chance!

I’ve got a new Star Wars design up at (the relatively) new site – www.revengeoftheprinter.com – a bargain $10 tee all week…

Han Solo is the best right? We all know this…so when some whippersnapper farm boy comes along shooting Tie Fighters he needs putting in his place. Damn straight.

Andy: Thanks for the submission.

I really like the design style of that unicorn tee, but I don’t think that I’d be able to get away with wearing it. Interesting to see that they released the sea panda shirt in the same week when it’s largely the same concept as the unicorn shirt. I’m not a Pokemon player so I don’t really understand the green shirt, but considering how popular that franchise is I would assume that it will go down as a solid seller for them.

Anachrosaur t-shirt collection

by Andy on February 18, 2014

akfortysaurus bg 480x640 Anachrosaur t shirt collection
jcbrachiosaur bg 480x640 Anachrosaur t shirt collection
stegosaurus redbg 480x640 Anachrosaur t shirt collection

Inspired by a throwaway quote on a dinosaur blog about the Stegosaurus being the Swiss Army Knife of the dino world, this new collection of tee designs takes that idea and runs with it. Each design features the silhouette of a particular dino mashed up with a piece of tech appropriate to the dino’s personality or physicality.

Andy: Pretty cool idea, thanks for the submission.

By the time you get that Flappy Bird shirt no one will give a damn about the game. The fry and taco shirt is very cute though.

Can anyone explain to me why the horse pill shirt is funny? I don’t get it, Googling suggests it is something to do with drugs, but even so, it doesn’t seem to have had a lot of chatter recently so I don’t know why they’d pick now to release this design?

Solid week from BustedTees, I can see lots of people liking these designs, though I’d be surprised if the poker dogs tee is around for long because even with BustedTees being a legit business I can’t imagine they got an agreement from all the licensees to have those dogs on one shirt, though it would be neat if they did.

hideyourarms superman super nippies MODEL 480x552 We Dream of Super Nippies t shirt by Foxdown Tees [Submitted]

We are Foxdown Tees, founded by independent illustrator and designer Ronan Lynam and we invite you all to check out our new store. We even have a cool background image like Andy does!

Our passions has always been drawing and design, and we felt that (big surprise) shirts are a great way to share our humor, wit and style. We take inspiration from some of the best independent shirt illustrators (Glennz, Aled Lewis, etc) and wish to share with the world even more snarky designs.

Foxdown Tees loves HYA, and think that Andy does a great job at curating the site with quality content. We hope that HYA and the community enjoy our tees, and we look forward to sharing more with you all in the future!

Andy: In some ways, it’s almost annoying that they submitted this tee because it’s the kind of design that could turn people off from the brand, when they have other stuff on the site that is a lot more enjoyable, I’m actually really impressed with the rest of the catalogue and hope to see more of these guys.

Victory Brand

by Mr Four Fingers on January 21, 2014

victory brand

55 05 5cm Victory Brand   24714 e130fdc6bc0a47ad9b9969cf2f21ba57 480x515 Victory Brand 24714 61d10390685345e3a9d69e4214cc996a 480x499 Victory Brand tumblr lvsgmeU2at1r01lj1o1 400 Victory Brand tumblr lyxsnlIbUa1r01lj1o1 400 Victory Brand tumblr lzqwnuzJHh1rnkhvqo1 400 Victory Brand

I discovered (well it existed already) Victory Brand whilst checking out the stalls in Brick Lane (London) as we were scouting out how people were setting up, the look and feel. What I was not expecting was to find a stall with a t-shirt of two girls pissing while standing up. Shocked. I also liked it in a totally non ‘I love golden showers’ kinda way. Victory Brand’s stall was hands down the best one. Simple and impactful with massive prints hanging up.

The lady, yes the lady, behind Victory Brand is Victoria Sin who has a portfolio bursting at the seams with cocks and vaginas. It comes as a surprise then when you see a huge pug design on a tee/sweater, so bold and ‘normal’ you feel like maybe you missed a hidden penis. FYI her blog is NSFW.

Victory Brand smacks of edgy high-fashion with polished photography, sharp looking models and a strong voice. Her designs will no doubt polarize opinion and I for one think she is pretty damn talented, ambitious and die-hard energetic (tees are hand printed during week and sold on weekends).

Tees are £30 a pop. Wear one if you dare

shirtFrontBig 480x295 Javasaurus t shirt for coffee lovers at Teespring [Submitted]
front Javasaurus t shirt for coffee lovers at Teespring [Submitted]

One day at my friends house – he told me he had a funny idea for a shirt and shared the idea of Javasaurus, a big T-Rex that had trouble trying to drink coffee. Once he told me – I literally LOL’d – which I rarely do and I rarely use that abbreviation. I thought about it for a while – and drew a picture a couple hours later – which started at the basis for this design.

After a weekend of brainstorming some more ideas of dinosaurs struggling in a human dominant world – we decided we’d start with Javasaurus and see if anybody would be interested.

We launched a campaign on Teespring, because I’m broke right now and can’t afford to get t-shirts printed up in the real world. It’s going for $20 right now – which most of the profits will go back into making more shirts about the other dinosaurs who struggle on a day to day basis – if it’s a hit.

Not expecting anything crazy to happen here – would just love to spread some post holiday cheer around the world. If you end up not purchasing one – hopefully you got a kick out of the idea and it brightens your day just a little bit.

Andy: It’s a pity that there wasn’t more time spent on the text underneath the drawing on this design, it looks like a bit of an afterthought and the design suffers as a whole because of it. Maybe it’s just the mockup and it’ll look fine in print.

1Octo 480x722 Review of Alkemie Apparel http://alkemieapparel.com/

Way past due is my review of the awesome Alkemie Apparel! Christmas, childcare and over working myself to actual semi death got in the way.

I was drawn to Alkemie on Twitter, on paper they are everything that I like in tees! Dark, tattoo inspired tees, vest, bags and also jewellery.

I opted for this super cute Cousteau vest! I really like anything with tentacles and the  blue print against the black really pops. I’ve worn this three times and I have to admit, it’s super comfortable and washes like a dream. The quality is excellent and the print is amazing.  For a few more pennies you can get the Cousteau handbag which is actually one of the most awesome bags I’ve seen in a long while and it’s well and truly on my ever growing Birthday list (yes! I know we have just had Christmas). They have an awesome selection of bags which look a pretty good size for Mums too!

octo 480x369 Review of Alkemie Apparel http://alkemieapparel.com/

They also do some pretty cool dark guys shirts. They have a few designs but I think this Sugar Skull one is my favourite one I also like the added touch of the print on the back. I could see my hubby in this and a lot of the other tees. They are macho without being offensive!

sugar skull men s t shirt 2 480x681 Review of Alkemie Apparel http://alkemieapparel.com/

They also do a cute selection of necklaces some of which co-ordinate with the tees. I opted for the cute bird one, I think I will put the pendant on a choker though for added gothyness! They have a mixture of cute ones, gothy ones, slogan ones. I really like them, totally unusual and would be an awesome gift for someone who you aren’t sure of their size.

Miscito t-shirts (for kids) [Submitted]

Red Shirt Boys W Bkgrnd 480x320 Miscito t shirts (for kids) [Submitted]
Love at first sight W Bkgrnd2 480x320 Miscito t shirts (for kids) [Submitted]

Miscito is a brand with a powerful message. While we are dedicated to creating quality clothing, we are here to make more than just a fashion statement. We want Miscito kids to understand that our brand is about relevancy. It is about the world we live in. And it’s about how we are all inseparably connected, for better or for worse.

We begin our journey with 4 limited edition t-shirts. They are original, quirky and all feature distinct interpretations of our Miscito hero. They have been designed by unique artists who are committed to making kids stand out! Miscito products are designed exclusively for children and our fun designs will make kids the envy of their friends.

Our goal is to create a stylish brand that transcends time and trends. We believe that children’s clothing should be timeless. In this throwaway society it’s too easy to buy cheap and disposable outfits for a handful of uses; we want our brand to stick. We make our products from the finest materials so that they won’t wear out, and we do that for a reason. We want Miscito to last, we want parents to get the best value for their money and we want children to take satisfaction in owning a quality product. Miscito is quality with a message.

Miscito brand t-shirts come with a world-scope message that kids can bond with and that parents can be proud to support—malaria awareness. Most malaria deaths are among children and Miscito plans to donate a part of all its proceeds to a worthy non-profit organization involved in the worldwide fight against the disease.

Andy: Looks like these guys were meant to be opening yesterday but from the looks of their site they’re not quite ready. Hopefully somethng will be up soon though since it’s a pretty cool idea.

I’m behind on posts (even by my standards) after having a photography job to do last week which took up a lot of my time (and was rather fun) so I’m going to attempt to catch up this week. Unfortunately this means that you will have missed out on the introductory price for last weeks’ Snorg Tees, but they’re still not badly priced at $19.95 each and there’s some fun tees in this bunch.

Batgirl cape tee back 480x480 Cape Superhero T shirts at Superhero City [Submitted]
Batgirl cape tee 480x480 Cape Superhero T shirts at Superhero City [Submitted]
Wonder Woman Cape Tee 480x480 Cape Superhero T shirts at Superhero City [Submitted]

Superhero City has just launched on www.superherocity.co.uk, specialising in officially licensed superhero t shirts and hoodies as well as other superhero merchandise.

You can dress up as a superhero in one of the cape costume t shirts, which are available for women and kids. Kids have the choice of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, while the ladies can choose to be either Wonder Woman, Batgirl or Supergirl. There are also cape socks for the ladies – again, there is a choice of Wonder Woman, Batman or Supergirl. If the guys want to get in on the cape action, there are some men’s Batman socks and a Superman backpack with detachable capes! It’s amazing how a cape can make you feel that little bit more awesome! But for when you want to tone it down a bit, you can take the cape off as they are all detachable.

The women’s tees are £22, kids tees £20 and socks are £12.99 with free delivery on all UK orders.

Andy: Detachable capes are a smart idea!

Fun new tee from Glennz, I’m not 100% sure if I’d actually want to wear it, but the image made me smile, which is a lot more than most ‘funny’ tees do. With it being brand new the photobomb t-shirt is $15 this week, but every other shirt in the catalogue is on sale down to $17.50 a shirt until Sunday, no coupon needed, the discount is already applied.

NES “Shotgun” t-shirt by Glennz

by Andy on November 1, 2013

shotgun image 480x360 NES Shotgun t shirt by Glennz
Last year I dug out my old NES and played a bit of Duck Hunt with my mates, it was a lot harder than I remembered, and I’m still kind of amazed that Nintendo were able to produce a game like that which worked on any TV back in the 80s. I know that the NES Zapper was a bit of a gimmick, but it was still pretty cool, and I’m sure that if there had been an actual shotgun I’d have been all over it, especially since it would have meant you couldn’t miss those damn ducks.

Costiness=$15 (until a new shirt is released then it will go up) Buy it at Glennz
