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!

“As a designer and visual artist it’s essential to develop a style and to go your own way. With this Shirt I just wanted to keep that in mind and combine it with two other things I realy like: Good typography and T-Shirts. I hope you like my typework on this Shirt!”
I like vinyl toys and have a few sitting on top of my PC tower, but I’m not that into the whole culture of it. Pobber on the other hand, they just can’t get enough, so they have celebrated this with a shirt riffing on the iconic ‘make peace not war’ slogan. Pretty cool!

Andy: What an unusual name, thanks for the submission!
I probably wouldn’t wear the 99 Problems shirt released this week at Snorg, but it did make me smile and that’s a lot more than most ‘funny’ shirts do. Generally solid week of releases, there’s some fun stuff here.
We asked four of our favorite type guys — Ale Paul, Neil Summerour, Corey Holms, and Grant Hutchinson — to create a hand-lettered T-shirt for TypeCon 2013. We love that each shirt reflects their individual style and personality. It’s a little bit of them, on you (but not in a creepy way).
And you can save 40% on any or all of them by entering offer code LETTERING13 at checkout.
The good news? The offer code is valid right through December 31, 2013.
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.

Looks like Publik are on a bit of a run, releasing two text tees in as many days, and this time around I don’t have to get on my high horse to tell them why they’re entitled to their views but are also very wrong.
