Earlier in the week, I received a lovely parcel from the lovely team at Tomtangle! I requested man fit as they don’t do girly size however I have tried this on tucked into a pair of shorts and it looked cute on me. We got a surprise design too which is always more fun! Package also came with some super cute freebie stickers! I love getting little bits and bobs like that with tees!
Tomtangle specialise in outdoor tees, I love all the bike theme feel tees and I like that they aren’t scared to experiment with bit of colour!
I really like the design we got send which is called ‘Wheel T-shirt’ the tee fabric is absolutely gorgeous and soft to the touch and it’s true to size. My husband wore it all day yesterday and said it was super comfortable and a joy to wear.
My favourite designs on the Tomtangle site are ‘Framed’ and ‘Kaleidospoke‘ which is available in two different colours. The blue with yellow print is probably my favourite tee on the site.
Another brucey bonus is that they wash fantastically! I have washed it and dried it and it’s in as perfect condition as it was
when it dropped through my letterbox!
Prices are £20 which I’d say is about right for tees of this quality. Perfect gift too for anyone you know who is remotely outdoorsy!
Usually I’m on top of my game when it comes to posting about new designs from shirt funnyman Glennz, but I can’t remember writing about the three above, so I thought I’d wrap them up in a single post so that we’re all caught up. I think that of the three the ‘Stunt Fish’ design is my favourite. They’re all $21.95 each and available now from Glennz, who is offering 25% off when you buy three or more shirt at the moment.
Ah, it’s always great to see brands going from strength to strength and never settling but always burgeoning forward. Though this time the brand has moved forward, with a new name and a whole lot more punch. Back February at the Margin Trade Show we (Andy and Logan ) had the pleasure of meeting the guys behind Dr Popcorn Apparel but since then they have decided to change the name of their brand to Crook & Dagger as they felt their previous name was rather misleading and didn’t suit their ideals.
This was the right move. Now the gritty nature of their brand has a name that suits it. I was also pleased to see some bloody good photography, great looking models and shit hot lifestyle imagery which gives any brand, let alone a small independent brand, a lot more kudos. They have also added some new designs, vests, tanks, sweaters (coming soon) and accessories like beanies and even a hoody for you little mutt.
As far as I can tell every tee is £25 with free postage in the UK so if you are into gritty illustrations with the occasional smattering of dark humour then head over to Crook & Dagger and have a gander. Make sure to enter HYABOMB at checkout to receive a 10% discount.
It’s pretty rare that I see something that takes a shirt and does something I’ve never seen with it, so these innovative designs from Foldie are really interesting. These kids-sized shirts fold in a manner that the design cuts down to become something new as you fold it into different shapes before ending up at the traditional square-ish shape that most of us use to stack our growing collections of tees. If I haven’t explained it well, just watch the video, that will do a better job than my rambling words.
On the Internet today: a supercut mixtape of the most iconic t-shirts to grace the Silver screen. The edit includes some memorable faves — Vote For Pedro, Nigel’s Green Skeleton tank top from This Is Spinal Tap, the so-called Shark Cat design from Pineapple Express — but is carefully leavened with some curious artifacts of the slogan variety from the ’80s.

Love reviewing companies who are brand spanking new! They normally have some awesome fresh ideas and Nausica are no exception. I fell upon some of their tee images on Facebook and I enjoyed the photography style which then led me onto their site. Tattooed peeps always get me interested.
Their statement is
“Nausica is the age of positive vibes through fearless designs, inspired by the love of music and life.”
Their designs are crisp and clean without being dull. All on white tees to bring out the punchiness of the designs. I was asked which I liked the best and I opted for ‘Mechanical Evolution‘ although coming in at a close second is ‘Trippy Mirror‘. Their facebook page is also boasting the new released of pretty awesome design ‘The Buddha Tee’ pictured below. It’s awesome!
After exchanging a few message with the fella in charge I get a good few about the company and the people running it and I have to admit I adore the tee. The quality feels top notch and it washes like an absolute dream. I’m a UK size 12 and I was sent the Small, I think this would fit up to a small UK 16 comfortably as it’s got quite a bit of stretch.
I could also totally see the designs making stunning tattoos and that also draws me to them.
They are also one of those companies where I keep checkin’ in to see if they have any new designs, which is always a pretty good sign. If you want to keep up with them you should drop by their:-
Hide Your Arms isn’t a place for politics, it’s a place for showing you guys cool clothes. That said, if there were less guns in the US, and it was harder to buy them, there would be less gun deaths (and probably less homicides too), it’s as simple as that. The cool thing about this design is that it is actually pretty wearable, it makes a statement and does it in a way that doesn’t have to compromise your style, like most political shirts do.
In fairness to Sharknado, it has probably been one of Syfy’s biggest successes for many years, even if people are only watching it to see how bad it is. Shirts are $5 off the regular price at Snorg until Sunday.
Isn’t it weird that there aren’t more Buffy t-shirts considering how massively popular the show was? I guess it isn’t really on TV much anymore so perhaps the younger generation don’t see it much and so t-shirt designers don’t want to spend time on something out of the public consciousness.
All three shirts are $14 at Tshirt Laundry this week before going up next week.
I haven’t seen Pacific Rim, but I do love that Hokusai-inspired design new in at BustedTees this week. Then again, I say that about every Hokusai-inspired design that I see. Shirts are $20 a piece and available now.
You know when I stopped writing about all the daily sites like TeeFury and RIPT because the mashups made no sense? I’m pretty sure this one doesn’t really make sense, but my confusion only adds to my enjoyment in this case.
