I do like the style of this t-shirt and tank top at Atsolpes, but it’s hard to deny that’s it’s fairly generic, which leaves me a bit conflicted over it since I like it, but do feel it isn’t their best work. Tees are $27, and the tank top is $25.
Isn’t that just lovely? Really nice design with a positive message that has just made my day feel that little bit better, and if a t-shirt can manage that then it’s doing something right.

Not the best week ever at Snorg but it could be worse, and all three shirts are $14.95 this week, rising to $19.95 next week as usual.
Ahhhh, disco, the death of so many promising relationships.
This is a 100% organic shirt printed with non-toxic inks, Mighty Humble strive to be as low-impact as possible with their tees, which is something I think we can all respect, and they’ve got a few other nice tees in store too.

Very nicely done indeed, pity the sizing options only go from S-L, but I guess most of the tee buying public is probably that size so it makes sense to print them, but us big guys like tees too!

A brand hailing from Australia bringing a “revolutionary” idea to you on t-shirts. I’m not sure about that whole revolutionary thing but these new tees from Revolution Australia are quite stylish in their own right.
Working the typography angle, Revolution Australia has produced some creatively cute designs. This one above is called Surf Zoo and as Ric the owner/designer shared with us,
“One of the most popular sports in Australia is Surfing. There are so many beaches that many, MANY people practice this sport. You could say OZ is a SURF ZOO.”
I really enjoy when brands do typography tees and creatively incorporate designs into the lettering. Something I’ve never been a pro at doing but I really do admire a brand who can come up with a good one. This is a good one, considering I love surfing myself but my only problem is Ric shared that explanation with us at HYA but not in the product description on the website. I mean the washing instructions are there which is well, interesting, in so many words but no good “story” with the tee. Here’s a few more new ones from Revolution Australia.

It’s not a clothing company bringing the goods this time, but instead, small Bristol based design studio, Fiasco Design. In celebration of their love of bikes the guys there have created this super simple (yet super awesome) limited edition tee.
With only 50 available and with them costing only 10 of your English pounds, if bikes (or very nice tees) are your thing then i’d be snapping this up!
As someone that hasn’t watched Firefly I can’t really go deep into explaining what’s going on with this shirt, but I would presume that this is a quote, and quite a nice one at that.

I’m pretty surprised that no one has made a Star Wars alphabet before, but I can’t remember another and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen everything in the world ever so there’s no way I’d have missed it. Really nice shirt from A Better Tomorrow, I expect this to do fairly well.

Portgual hasn’t given a lot to the world, to be honest. You’ve got a lot of salt cod (but that’s also popular – and more associated – with Scandinavian countries), and Christiano Ronaldo (who isn’t necessarily the best face you want to put forward). But now there’s another thing to add that Portugal has contributed to the world: Black Thunder Clothing Company.
Black Thunder was founded in 2008 by the graphic designer and illustrator André Silva, and they put out a variety of brash and bold t-shirts which would look great on the streets of Lisbon or some other continental city. Oversized illustrations and ballsy type make this the sort of thing you wear if you want to get noticed, but it’s quite hedonistic (especially their lookbook for the Summer ’12 line). We’re pleased to say that they’re Portgual’s first entry on HYA, and we’re happy to welcome them.
If this sort of thing’s your style, then the shirts are priced fairly competitively, from €12.50 to €15. It’s maybe not the sort of thing I’d wear (I like my designs more subtle), but there’s definitely a market for this sort of shirt when done well – and to my eyes it seems that Black Thunder are doing precisely that.
There’s something which makes me smile about a t-shirt company that has a shirt with just ‘Laundry Day’ written on it, it’s a fun little joke though I do question whether it’s a good idea to name your whole brand after the last thing in your closet you’ll wear just because everything else is dirty!

The 3 classic spray paints used by graf artists in the Seventies. Also an homage to Experimental Jetset, who created and designed the John & Paul & Ringo & George’ shirt in 2001. Screen printed on American Apparel, Fine Jersey (100% Cotton)
Andy: Can’t describe myself as being especially knowledgeable when it comes to the world of graffiti art, but I like the ‘insider knowledge’ aspect of the design that will give it a bit of nad-and-wink appeal for artists which understand the design.
Winky Boo‘s getting inspirational and deep with this new Know Your Own Worth t-shirt for Men & Women. This will be the second time around with a typography type design for Winky Boo – our first being the A Life In Progress series which was very popular. Know Your Own Worth will come in a women’s style & a separate men’s style (no unisex), both in similar dark grey heather colors with that strong, bold font. Promoting positive self-esteem and self-worth is the goal with this t-shirt – all in all relating to the Winky Boo brand mantra of remembering how fun and inspirational life was when we were in our youth. How we were happy and positive, fun-loving kids that were just amazed and impressed by everyone and everything. We were so innocent and so care-free and weren’t yet crushed by the negatives in this world. Inspire yourself to remember that with our Know Your Own Worth t-shirt!!
Andy: Funny to see Amy submit a post instead of just writing a post herself, but I think she was worried about HYA becoming the WinkyBoo blog this week with all the news and releases that they’ve got going on. This particular design is on pre-sale until Friday night.
Suck! are back again with their 2012 summer release and it’s as awesome as ever. Bringing to the table their usual mix of t-shirts, from a few variations of the logo t-shirt, to the ever popular photo art tees and my personal favourite, their amazing illustrated tees! And this time as well as t-shirts we are also promised some sweet looking hats that will be ‘coming soon’.
This release is 100% worth a look as there really is, as ever, something for everyone with Suck.
And on a side note to their summer release they currently have another quality t-shirt up for pre-order
that any James Harden fan should be getting!
Slightly offensive t-shirt by Shot Dead in the Head . I did find this pretty funny though I probably wouldn’t wear it.
These are pretty neat from Typography Shop. As you may well have guessed, they’re a couple of posters featuring love stories made up from song titles of the 1960s and 70s, apparently with the 80s coming along soon as well. They’re currently on pre-release for $17.50 each and will be shipping on or near to June 18th.
I’ve just spent a weekend in a caravan in Wales, and though it rained solidly for one day, the other two days were bright, sunny and almost Mediterranean. That can mean one thing: it’s summer time.
Of course, the weather can be unpredictable, so it’s much better to rely on Random Objects’s summer line release. We’ve written extensively in the past about this brand, and regular readers will know we’re a fan. Luckily the Summer ’12 releases (or rather, the first part as the press release we were sent teases) look to validify our good faith.
‘Be Polite’ (up top, $24) is a great example of a strong typographic tee. In a bright blue, the white text really stands out and it’s the little details such as the highlighting of the “and” which really separates this from the sort of thing you can pick up for ten bucks on Cafepress. It also preaches a good motto too: if I could, I’d be asking Random Objects very poliltely if they’d let me do a wear test on this design.
The other three designs are a little less strong to my eyes, but are nonetheless something which would fit well in any wardrobe. I’m not a fan of tank tops, but for those who are ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ ($20) would be a great buy. It’s the sort of thing you’d wear in Instagrammed photos with the sun streaking across the sky behind you.
‘A Sailor’s Life’ ($24) looks like a shirt you’d buy in a high-end department store (which isn’t meant as a slight) and has an inspirational message; ‘Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’ ($24) is a smart play on the age-old turn of phrase which is equal parts cute and scary. Most importantly, I can imagine wearing all of them with some shorts while padding along the beach. Summer is here people! Enjoy it!
Three very wearable designs from Snorg this week, with my personal favourite being the gravity offering. They’re $14.95 this week, jumping up to $19.95 after that.
