Welcome to December. Naturally a lot of brands will be focusing on making sales during the run up to Christmas, and I suspect we’ll see a lot of coupon codes and discounts revolving around that, so the news portion of these roundups will likely grow. These roundups do take quite a lot of time, so if you like it, share it please!
When I try to visit TeeFury Firefox comes up with this. Now, I am 100% confident that Teefury has not been an elaborate phishing scam from the beginning, but after checking out their Facebook page it seems a lot of people have also had this message come up, so I feel that their site may have been compromised in some way. This happened to HYA once and it was hell getting it fixed as someone that doesn’t have much technical expertise, hopefully they will have it sorted soon and it doesn’t cause too many headaches, but I recommend anyone who has visited in the past few days to run a virus scan. There has been no response that I can see from Teefury as of yet.
Quite a clever shirt from Qwertee today, showing fictional books based on movies such as Ghostbusters and Back To The Future.
There’s a lot of excitement over at RIPT for this Star Wars x Transformers mashup.

I like the way that this new design from Glennz is just an ever so slight tweak on something normal. Something else I like is that Lego hasn’t really changed since it was introduced. Lego that I had when I was a kid can be pushed together with pieces that my girlfriend’s niece got last week, and that’s something that I feel is refreshingly unusual in the world of toys now.
Costiness=$14.95 (as part of the save wave) Buy it at Glennz
I can’t say I was much of a fan of the Castlevania series of games, I think I may have played one on the NES and never really got into it so I didn’t bother with the rest of the series, which was probably my loss in hindsight.
From $10 today at RIPT.
Very cool design from RIPT today, it’s surprising that Donkey Kong isn’t featured in more t-shirts considering that he is one of the classic video game characters, and has a name that I think would be just as well-known as Mario and Sonic.
T-shirt from $10, more for a hoodie, onesie, or kids sizes.
One of the few things I remember about a childhood holiday my family had in Florida was that the E.T. ride at Universal Studios was so amazing that as soon as we got off it we went straight back on. I’m sure that if we went back it wouldn’t nearly be as magical (presuming it is still running). Ahhh, childhood.
From $10 today at RIPT.

Andy: I can’t be the only person struggling to reconcile the ‘vision’ and style of this company with their shirts being made for kids, can I? Although I guess it isn’t the kids that are buying the shirts, it’s adults buying the tees for their children, and if you’re an adult why wouldn’t you buy your child a cool t-shirt that you wouldn’t mind wearing yourself.

Cute shirt, I think I’d prefer the print placement to be raised up ever so slightly, but with a print that is going to take up so much of the front by necessity it is always going to be quite hard to place.

I am not an expert when it comes to children, it’s entirely possible that something I think is a good t-shirt for kids is entirely inappropriate, but I think I’m fairly safe with these tees.

My man Scott over at Teetsy is going to be dropping 14 new shirts in his Spring collection, and this first release is for the first 3, which obviously includes one design that is available in kid-friendly sizes. Personal favourite of the three is the shirt on the left because it reminds me of how tasty diner food was in America, if I’d stayed in the country any longer I’d have a show in TV now called “the guy that’s so fat he can’t get out of bed, yet for some reason keep bringing him food so he’ll never lose weight.”
Oh, and you can get 20% off your order for the rest of the month by using the coupon code springsprung at the checkout.
Personally, I don’t feel that today’s RIPT design doesn’t really suit a hoodie, but I am all for them providing the daily releases on more than ‘just’ t-shirts. As you have probalby gathered from the image they’ll be printing the design onto the back of an American Apparel zip-up hoodie (since a front print would effect the design), for $38.
As we all know, I don’t pay much attention to the daily sites because 24-hour sales are hard for me to cover effectively, so my knowledge of RIPT is actually fairly limited, but from what I can tell the addition of hoodies (as well as kids sizes and onesies) isn’t the only thing happening there this week. They’ve just launched a redesign of the site (described by commenters as what would happen if DBH and TeeFury made sweet, sweet love), switched all their screenprinting over to Mammoth Print Shop (except for the kids stuff, which is DTG printed), and a couple of weeks ago they had their 500th design on the site, which is a pretty incredible feat in an era when 24-hour tee sites seem to not last much more than 24 hours. Now they they’re selling hoodies I might have to keep more of an eye on them!
My previous hard-line of being scared of babies and kids has been softened recently, but don’t expect HYA to be a child friendly zone quite yet, I’m only posting this because Kosher Ham know what’s what, and if they’re making onesies and baby tees then they’re probably going to be pretty good. As is typical for KH some of the designs are focused on Jewish culture, but if that isn’t your bag then they have some cute non-Jewish designs too.

I put my detective hat on for this post, that’s right, actual work, not just a random sentence about a tee and then the price. I first wrote about MonsterHoodies back in 2008, and liked their concept, hoodies with bits of tooth shaped cotton around the hood, and googly eyes on top to finish off the face. Sure, it wasn’t the most sophisticated novelty hoody in the world, but it was cute.
Today, I swung by Busted Tees to see if they had anything new on offer, because I’ve been enjoying their offerings lately, and it turns out they’re now selling Monster Hoodies. So, I visited MonsterHoodies.com and it went straight through to BustedTees, which is a little curious. Then, I remembered the woman modelling the hoodies in my initial post works for Connected Ventures (I know this because of their ridiculously awesome Harvey Danger Lipdub that I put at #7 on a list of cool t-shirt videos), the parent company of BustedTees (who also own Vimeo and CollegeHumor, amongst others), so it doesn’t seem so mysterious now why Monsterhoodies are solely sold by BustedTees. Gil Grissom, eat your heart out, then spend an hour stroking your chin working out who did it!

They’re only $25 a pop for kids, and adult sizes are in the works too!
Oh, and the company that makes them was founded by an original member of Journey!

I thought it was funny how the opening of the first Threadless
shop was met with much and excitement, hell, I actually wrote a post about the floor plan
, and people actually commented on it!
This time around however, when Threadless open their first store just for their childrens range, it gets a blog post, without that much fanfare. I guess it’s because the Kids range hasn’t got the same kind of following, and possibly also because the Kids store doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that the main store does, it almost looks like a *gasp* normal store, though a very nice one at the that.
The store can be found on 1905 W. Division Street in Chicago.

We’ve already covered maternity wear this week, so I might as well move things along a couple of months and point you towards some cool clothes for babies and toddlers. I know very little about baby clothes, but I like that Chunky Chunk are producing designs which aren’t overly baby-ish, I’d actually be pretty happy wearing some of them myself, as long as they weren’t an adult one-piece… no one wants to see that, right?

People, the people that sell hoodies
, have started selling hoodies for kids. I don’t know much about kids clothes, despite having being one myself, but I think they look quite cool, does HYA have any readers/parents that could comment on these?

Before the Christmas break, our friends over at Waterloo launched a whole new site for kids tees. I know I don’t cover kids tees all that often on HYA, when it comes to Waterloo, more people being able to wear their pop culture based designs can only be a good thing. Slightly confusingly, they don’t seem to have managed to take photos of kids wearing all the tees, so on the kids page for all shirts, they still have the pictures from the main adult site, but rest assured that you are looking at kids sized tees.

On the HYA about page, along with being woefully out of date, it jokes that I’ll write about onesies since they hide your arms. Well, it may have taken almost two years, but I finally freakin’ did it!
Threadless say that they asked their printers to get them onsies with hoods on them, and that the printers came back empty-handed, so they just made them themselves, and the ‘hoodsie’ was born. Now, I realise I’ve got my skeptical hat on here, but as they state in their own blog post, there are costumes likes this for kids, and whilst they do have ears on them usually, so that the baby looks like a bear or whatever, that doesn’t stop them from being a hoodsie now does it?
Still, they’re sooooooo cute!
