Little Bit Of Threadless! 31/05/2013

by DeeHYA on May 31, 2013


Haven’t blogged Threadless, mostly because when they changed everything with their website it made it inaccessible to me to blog, I couldn’t save images so I had to screen shot every single page and then crop the bits I needed out so it was taking the best part of an hour to blog. Also I don’t think the new website has the community feel that it used to, I used to love spending time rating tees but I’m put off. I also went from getting a tee every month from Threadless to every 3-4 months. Not cool.

They’ve also scrapped their $1.50 streetteam points for each pic. I understand why they’d do this however, I miss looking at the galleries of people goofing around the the same tee that I’ve got!

As I haven’t been on for a while I have to familiarise myself with the site again. Some crackin’ new designs though. Feeling big love for Starry Pattern by Fred Hoffman.  Bit of a homage to Mr Van Gogh, can totally see why this one has been printed, shows super originality and also I have a soft spot for all over printed tees.



I can see this one being popular with the cat loving Threadless fans, especially as we find kitties cuter than than kids. I also highly recommend girly boat necks, and I think this design would look less severe on the natural colour tee than on the white. This tee is called Drunken Cat Drawings by Jillian Fisher. Quite nice to see some different names on Threadless though, did just feel like they printed designs by the same 3 people all the time!


Possibly my new favourite Threadless design ever! Me and my 6 year old daughter have just spent about 5 minutes laughing like goons at Magic Bacon Ride by George Ostubo. The facial expressions are fab and the choice to put it on a pale blue tee was a good one. One word, WANT!


My husband likes this tee, it’s not my cup of tea. I enjoy the tank but I think it looks a but silly on the guy! It is an interesting mix of colour though, I’d be inclined to get it a size bigger and wear a bright pink or yellow long sleeved tee underneath it. I think The City That Never Sleeps by Dina Prasetyawan is a bit of a marmitey tee though.



This next tee isn’t dissimilar to a Unicorn Star Wars tee that I already own from Threadless. Is it too similar? I’m not sure because I kinda want it. Nar Wars by Austin Frankel is so well drawn, all the colours pop and it’s in no way lost on the black tee. Can’t see what isn’t to love!

nar wars

Lastly but not leastly for this blog CATastrophic End of the Milky Way by Niel Quisaba and Soloyo is a cute mixture of colour and a great concept for a tee, although it kind of looks like the cat is spewing it out rather than lapping it up!




Hands-On BAKSO Graphic Tee Review

by MissMcFaul on May 29, 2013

I really appreciate the Bakso tee shirt website’s concept. Giving artistic people an easy outlet for their creativity and an opportunity to get their stuff seen, sold and paid for. Feedback on this type of thing is invaluable.

Screen Shot 2013-05-27 at 12.53.08

I picked an illustration by “indigoivy” called “Lillie” to go on my tee, I liked the simple monochrome and symmetry of the piece. It was a bit disappointing that there weren’t other options for the the colour of the t-shirt, you don’t get a drop down list to decide which you like best for the design that is going on it, your only option is what has been selected for you by the artist. I’m not a lover of white but I like the drawing so much I went with it.

2013-05-04 10.46.34

The tee arrived incredibly quickly but there was no special packaging or branding or stickers or flyers, just a plastic bag with a stamp on. Not that this really affects the product as such, but it’s a nice touch if you get some information about where the design came from whilst building a brand loyalty at the same time and giving a bit more value to your order. The fabric is 100% organic Indian cotton 1×1 jersey and feels lovely! Soft and stretchy with great elastic recovery. The small woven back neck label doesn’t irritate the skin and promotes the product as climate neutral, which brings peace of mind to a consumer with consumer’s guilt. When I put it on I was pleased that the fabric was heavy enough that it was not too see through, however I was shocked at how tight the women’s size large was. I am not a size large, I am a small size 12, and the top was skintight. Beware any ladies bigger than a 12, you will need to go in to men’s sizes and that is not ideal as the shape of the men’s tees are different. Still, the quality level is excellent, just be sure to check their sizing guide.

Screen Shot 2013-05-27 at 13.03.19

Looking at the garment I believe that white was a bad choice for this print as the background is an off white colour like the paper it was drawn on, also the square edges of the design made it appear as though little care had been taken over the whole process and that the design was just..stuck on there! If the background had been cleaned up a bit I would have just had a little more finesse, in my opinion [Andy note: as Bakso print submitted designs they have limited control over this aspect of the process, so I do agree, but the issue here lies with the designer]. I have looked around on the site and this is not the case with all the artists and there is some really great artwork and designs on the site, but don’t just take my word for it, go and check out Bakso as there will be something for everyone on there!


Hands-on Dead Legacy Review

by DeeHYA on May 25, 2013

Well, we had some beautiful sunshine today what better day to flounce around in a totally cool tee and write a review! Last weekend I got a tee from epic company Dead Legacy! This company has a huge following, seriously huge like party of over 40,000 people on Facebook! Therefore it was an honour to do a blog for them on Hide Your Arms.

This company has branded itself as a menswear company but I love them, the quality is fabulous on this tee, when I took it out of the envelope it arrived in I was gagging to put it on. It just felt gorgeous in my hands.

I put it on for the first time today and the fit was nice, I’m a female UK size 12 with DD chest and the small gents tee was quite nice and hugged all my bestest lumpy bits.

The tee I got sent was ‘80s Kid‘, which comes in two colour combos, I got the white with the grey sleeves. I love it, can’t wait to wear it again, already planning things in my wardrobe that it would go well with. Plus I am an 80’s kid, although admittedly I don’t remember much of it!

They have a massive selection of tees too, mixture of retro, semi naked chicks, night shots, landscapes, animals. It’s well worth having a nose, at £32.99 you might think they are a tad steep in the price section, however you can’t argue with the quality. Also if you’re wanting to try them out maybe snatch a deal from their sale section.

They also sell phone covers, caps and sweat tops! Over this weekend they have 25% off their sweat tops too. I particularly like this ‘Smoking Aces‘ one which you can get for £39.99 this weekend!

To conclude! Deffo swing by the Dead Legacy site, quality is epic, designs are so varied that you’re bound to find something to suit your style and also they have so many fans that they simply must be doing something right! :D

Well the title says it all, POW! Entertainment, founded by Stan Lee (yes THE Stan Lee, comic book icon) is teaming up with tee-a-day site,, to bring you limited edition merchandise! Even better, the series of designs will all be Stan Lee inspired and will be sold throughout the year of 2013 on! Another added bonus, these designs will be sold for only a 24-hour period – after that they are retired and never printed again. I say this is a bonus because that clearly means these designs will be so unique and limited, possibly making these some of the most rare Stan Lee collectables out there since they are only available for purchase in that 24-hour time… and who doesn’t like getting their hands on limited edition merchandise, especially ones featuring a legend like Stan!

The first of the twelve Stan Lee inspired tees to be produced at is this one pictured above appropriately titled Stan the Master designed by none other than Captain RibMan! This t-shirt is up for sale today, Friday, May 17th on, and ONLY for 24-hours you must remember. I do say, this is a great start to this series – I can’t wait to see what ShirtPunch and POW! Entertainment will bring us next!

I’ll leave you with this, a statement from the man himself, Stan Lee, about working with Shirtpunch, which also conveys the devotion he has to his fans:

“Comic and Entertainment fans are certainly the most passionate community when it comes to collecting high-quality limited edition merchandise of their favorite super heroes and movies. By partnering with ShirtPunch to offer flash designs, I feel I am creating something very special and unique for my fans that I think will set apart from other merchandise they may have but is incredibly accessible, affordable and fun to own.”

Button and Bean Personalised Jewellery

by DeeHYA on May 12, 2013


Ok so it’s not a t-shirt! It’s an odd thing to see on a t-shirt blog right? However despite the fact I wasn’t too enthused about the products based on seeing them on the ‘Not On The High Street‘ website, since I received my necklace from Button and Bean I simply haven’t had it off. It is something that I already know is going to be of immense sentimental value to me. You can also purchase all sorts of unique, one of a kind, special gifts from Not On The High Street.

I had a choice, and I opted for this necklace because it was sizeable enough that it would be able to get a good feel for the quality and also I wanted something that was going to be robust and I could wear it for long periods of time, and I’d be able to wear it for work.

There is a pretty cool selection of products, there is jewellery, cuff-links  keyrings, bookmarks, tree decorations that can all be personalised with fingerprints (or pawprints) of your loved ones.

After you order you get a little cast with which to create the finger print mould for your item. Me and my hubby took pics and broke it down into stages.

Basically you get some white goo and blue goo that you have to mix together, first need to separate it as below:

mouldweb3Mix them together until they are basically one even colour and then place them on to the card. You need to do it quite quickly as it starts to harden. Then firmly place your finger into the mix.


With the kit they sent us we had enough to do do four fingerprints altogether however, I mixed mine for too long and it began to set. So we ended up with three mounds of three different fingers of my husband.


After this we posted them in the SAE provide and I received the necklace within a fortnight.

The necklace is super sturdy and I love that it has a story about it and that I am able to talk about it and how much I love my husband. I am fully intending on getting two charms with my kids finger prints on to add to it. Because of the minimalist style of the jewellery it would be a nice gift for a relative who maybe doesn’t wear much jewellery but as I mentioned there are other options of things to can get for gifts. Looking at the site you might think it’s a tidge pricey but these are things that are made ‘just for you’!

My only tiny complaint is the type of chain they’ve used for the necklace keeps catching my hair in it, but it’s no problem to just fish it out.

To conclude I love my Button and Bean fingerprint necklace, I know that it one item I will treasure, love and wear forever and not because it’s worth a lot of money but because it has deep significant meaning for me.

They also have a 10% code on their FB page, the code is XFBD01


“101 Pandas” t-shirt from IBAKI

by Andy on April 26, 2013

Pretty cool idea, I’m quite surprised that I haven’t seen the concept before but I’m pretty sure that IBAKI have an original idea here, which is pretty rare in the t-shirt world these days.

IBAKI seem to have been going for a while but currently just have two designs in the store with more coming along next month, there’s some interesting designs in there that I think will go down well with the HYA crowd, but the webdesign style is a bit outdated which maybe be a bit of a hurdle for them in the future, for example they clearly have nice pictures taken with a model, but their store system doesn’t make it possible to display more than a thumbnail next to the buy button, so no one will see them, and the picture above is a much nicer way to display the shirt than a simple thumbnail.

Costines=$24.99 Buy it at IBAKI


Yuppie Girl Apparel was established in 2013 to fill a market void for girls as it relates to hunting and fishing apparel. We were no longer satisfied with the selection of mens cut shirts sold as ladies. From the original design to the cut and feel of the fabric, our goal was to create an expression that was as unique as the wearer, right down to the rhinestone embellishments.

Andy: They make a good point, I’ve never seen a company dedicated to female hunters and fishers, and to fill that void is a pretty good idea. Personally, I’d rather see the main image here being printed on the front and do away with the smaller print, but that’s just my preference, I guess when you’re hunting/fishing people are more likely to see your back anyway!



Last week I was lucky enough to review a sample from MKNK Clothing! The tee arrived a pretty funky pizza box style packaging with some lovely cute freebies.

When I was first told about this site I hopped on their site to see what they were about.  I enjoyed the site, it’s clean, crisp and bold and all their designs have a flow as if they are part of a cohesive collection.

The designs are all pretty cool, with gaming, music and they are all on white tees. I think it works because it makes the designs pop.  The hoodies are on black and grey and they look awesome too. All the tees are guy fit but I’ve started just throwing them on with leggings, dead comfy! I particularly like this design called Bolt Dismay! All the designs are original, you won’t find anything like these anywhere else.


The quality of the tee I received was first class! It was an absolute joy to wear and I’m totally looking forward to wearing it in the summer with my bright yellow shorts! It also washed super well the print is still as perfect as it was pre wash.

MKNK have also have had some product shots done on models and they are very current and in touch with the young un’s of today. I would definitely be inclined to buy one of these tees or hoodies for my 16 year old brother and I know for a fact he would be happy to wear them.

Drop by their FB page and also they have a $5 discount code on the go until 30th of April : BUNNYHOP

You also get a cute paper toy to make up! Amazing idea! Haven’t made mine up yet but I am gonna!



Princess Leia Costume Hoodie

by Andy on March 21, 2013

Could anyone really be a big enough Star Wars fan to wear this hoodie from 80sTees when they weren’t at a convention?

I’m fairly sure that this is meant to be a women’s hoodie, but since the sizes go up to 4XL I think that it could fit guys too, if you want to look like Princess Leia.

Costiness=$50 Buy it at 80sTees


These Folk

by Ash Jones on March 20, 2013

Clothing brand “These Folk” claim to be inspired by various things beginning with the letter ‘F’ – Fashion, folklore, felines and facial hair.

I don’t know why it works, but in my opinion it does.   I love the unique designs, it’s refreshing to see something that’s different to other brands, and also funny.

Still a relatively small independent label, with some items still hand painted, and others using digitalised printing techniques you can be sure that “These Folk” tees will be conversation starters.


I like beards and apparently so do cats…



If you have an awesome beard and are troubled by ladies staring at your impressive facial fluff then this is the tee for you!:



I’m a big mean girls fan, so will be getting myself this movie quote tee soon:

Weird Karl Pilkington all over print t-shirt!

by Ash Jones on March 16, 2013

This is probably one of the weirdest concepts for a t-shirt design I have seen, However the site claims that they are selling fast.  So If you should happen to be a slightly obsessive Karl Pilkington fan you can get yours at the appropriately named ‘Fashion Victim’ for £22 …

I don’t usually post about reprints, but this is the first time I’m seeing this vest print from Your Eyes Lie and even though it’s for women and I don’t wear vests I do really like it.

Front magazine and Sin star t-shirt collaboration

by Ash Jones on March 11, 2013

The funniest, sexiest magazine on earth – Front have teamed up with those creative people at Sin Star clothing to bring about a range of collaborative t-shirts.  The tees are unisex and I think they look pretty cool with their eye-catching all-over prints sporting some of the hottest girls in the UK right now, the designs are bold and can easily be worn by men or women.

This range is limited edition and I have a feeling that they won’t be around for long so as soon as payday comes I will be grabbing myself one of these! My favourite two from the range are ‘Stars and stripes’ and ‘Wet paint’ both priced at £35 they can be purchased from

Threadless : New and Reprinted (04.03.13)

by DeeHYA on March 4, 2013


Ooh Threadless your website still freaks me out, I much preferred it before all of the changes, I simply do not like change! Some pretty cool newbie and reprinted tees on the site though, I’m also particularly loving their Toy Story Collection.

Speaking of Toy Story one of my fave parts of the move is the bits involving the aliens.  Teealiens by Sinan Ozdemir is very simple but sums up the move really well in one tee, I reckon about 90% of people will get the movie from this. Absolutely delighted they are doing this in baby and toddler sizes, not sure why they’ve missed out kids though.

Another green tee for you in this blogette! Mixing together Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Doctor Who, I think I just had a Threadless-gasm! There is nothing I don’t like about this tee, it’s super original and Adventure Awaits by Karen Hallion is sure to be one of those tees that is reprinted again and again.


On now for something a bit darker in colour, I Met A Robot by Danny Burgess looks expensive, I think it is because of the combo of Brown with a Goldy colour print. Sadly this hasn’t been reprinted for girls, looks pretty cool on the hoody too.


Feel like it’s cheating blogging this tee, it’s an oldie but a goodie though. I really want it, my Xbox avatar has it for cryin’ out loud! Mister Mittens’ Big Adventure by Joe Van Wetering is a Threadless fave, it’s an explosion of colour and kitty with hex vision joy. There is nothing not to love about this tee


Charity Tee Alert! Invasion by Jose Pablo Ingles Casao is a lovely monotone City Scape with Space Invaders all over it. 25% of sales from each of these tees go to support The Leapyear Project. I’m somewhat confused about what the charity does from the site but I think it’s helping people achieve their aims.


Lastly, ha! I got to type Threadless into Threadless. I got sent one of these awesome quality tees. I can’t get over how much I love it, I love having ‘Threadless’ emblazoned on my wabs! It’s amazing and all Threadless fans need one. Word. This is Threadless Tee by Threadless! OOoooh loads of Threadless in that paragraph.



Tee Busters Review :

by DeeHYA on March 3, 2013


Ok so I’ll hold my hands up, I’ve had this tee for a while, I wore it for a shoot a while ago but I didn’t get any decent pics of the design, I made sure I shot it in the studio today. This skull emblazoned baby was from Tee Busters, I have review a website like this before.

They basically release tees for a limited period of time, so if you see it and decide you want it you need to get in quickly before they release the next design. I’m not sure whether if you specifically wanted one, such as the one I’m wearing in the pic, you’d be able to email them and see if they have any stock? I mean they might hold some old stock.

From the looks of their Facebook Page they seem to run pretty awesome offers (3 tees for 15 Euros) and competitions really regularly. I love when companies get their fans involved, I find it to be really good way of creating a loyal fan base.

I quite like their website, it’s loud and simple to use. You can looks at their previous designs in their Hall of Fame, there are a huge amount of geeky tees on there which bodes well from my point of view. I’ve seen Ninja Turtles, Batman, Spiderman, Misfits, Star Wars, Harry Potter and I could go on for ages! The sample tee I got is called ‘Chemistry is Fun’ and I love it, when I’ve had it on it’s been commented one, I’ve washed it 3 times and it’s in as spectacular condition as it was when the postie put it through my letterbox. Mine is on a navy tee which I think works nicer than the black one here.


The current tee on the website is a ‘Skyfall’ one and I know there’s a whole bunch of Bond fans ready to lap it up!

To sum up, I love my tee from this company, it’s comfortable and I’d say sizing is standard. The print quality is fabulous as is the tee quality. The website is simple to use and they interact with Joe Public. All in all a massive ‘Thumbs Up’ for Tee Busters!

Dr Popcorn Apparel [Margin Reports]

by Mr Four Fingers on February 25, 2013

Dr Popcorn Apparel

There are certain styles of illustration that set my pulse racing and ignite my dark imagination. The guys at Doctor Popcorn Apparel are doing just that. Andy and I recently had the pleasure of meeting Tom and Courtney, the guys behind DPA, at the recent Margin Trade Show. The driving force behind their brand is their t-shirt illustrations which are dark not only in colour but in theme. The majority of the illustrations are a combination of drawing, digital with a dash of vintage photography.

Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_2 Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_1 Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_5 Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_7

DPA currently sell their -shirts as ‘On Demand’ meaning they are DTG. I can tell you know that they are great looking t-shirts. They are in the process of testing some of their designs out as screen-prints which have their own attractive qualities so we are keen to see how that works out.

Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_8 Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_6

DPA had great product presentation with a good looking catalogue and nice hangar tags making the whole presentation feel quite professional. It also helps that chatting to these guys was as easy as liking their t-shirts. There is no ‘biggin up’ by DPA, their ethos is honest and gritty.

Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_4Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_9Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_10 Doctor_Popcorn_Apparel_11

All their t-shirts are available from their online store at Dr Popcorn Apparel for £25 a pop (on sale). They have designs for both men and women with some great looking packaging. Another curious thing about DPA is that all their designs have actual names like James, Harold and Elizabeth. Be sure to check them out.


netty ratti apparel embroidered t-shirts

Careful everyone, I’m about to delve into an area that I know even less about than screen printing, embroidery (and it’s a women’s line too, I’ve got no chance)!

The amount of embroidered stuff on HYA is pretty low as a percentage, not because I have anything against it, it’s just not an art form that we see much in the indie tee world, so when Doug and I spotted Netty Ratti of Ratti Apparel when we were doing the rounds at Margin we were pretty intrigued.

The idea of taking embroidery and giving it a fresh and modern update is really interesting, using what I’m guessing is cross-stitch to create a tattoo-inspired design is really fun, it challenges what you’d expect to see from this style of stitching and I like that. Before striking out on her own and creating her own label Netty had spent a decade in the industry helping create design for Ted Baker, DKNY, and Kate Moss for Topshop amongst others, and that wealth of experience and knowledge showed through during our chat as she patiently answered my questions about the design and creation process (seriously, I needed it explaining to me as if I were a 5 year-old).

We all know that I’m not in a position to really give solid critiques on womenswear lines, but everything about this looked good to me, there were lots of lovely colourways and the designs were all appealing and wearable. The fabrics come from ethical suppliers and the garments are produced and finished up in the North of England around the Manchester area (where Netty is now based). As you’d expect, I love that it’s done in the UK, and up North too, it’s rare to hear about clothing being produced locally and it’s great to see that Netty has chosen to go down that route.

Currently, Netty isn’t selling online but is available through a variety of hand-picked boutique stockists across England.


universal poison women's t-shirts

Universal Poison left a post on the HYA Facebook page and as you would imagine their product shots certainly did have me intrigued, because they really are rather creepy, more like something you’d expect from an art project than a t-shirt company, but then they got me interested so they must be doing something right.

At €39 and €49 a piece it’s fair to say that we are dealing with a premium product here, it’s impossible for me to sit here and look at something and decide if it’s worth spending that much on when you can get cheaper shirts elsewhere, sometimes I think we’ve been spoiled into expecting a t-shirt to be cheap and forget that the cut and quality can make so much difference, a difference that it’s very hard to see in pictures but would be very apparent in a physical shop.

I do really like their designs though, there’s a lot of cool stuff going on here and I’d wear just about everything in their catalogue, well, if they sold them on men’s cut tees.


Threadless Spiderman Collection (12/02/2013)

by DeeHYA on February 12, 2013



Well my husband’s Threadless wishlist has just increased by an actual tonne. He absolutely adores Mr Spiderman and these tees are possibly the best results of a design challenge that I have ever seen. Even if you’re not a massive comic fan you can’t help by love at least one of these.

First tee on my Spidey blog is Rock! Paper! Scissors! Web? by Robert Thomas Campbell looks like the front of a retro comic with Spidey totally kicking bottom at Rock Paper Scissors. Absolutely nothing I don’t like about this tee even though there isn’t much colour to it it works perfectly.



If a bit of colour is what you’re after Entanglement Theory by Dean Kotz has an explosion of colour with Spidey foiling some of his biggest enemies. I am particularly enjoying Venom in this. I don’t think Asphalt was the best choice of colour of tee, the Navy kids one looks good though.


It’s really hard to choose a favourite but this one would be in my top 3 favourites. Spider Fighter 8-bit by Tom Burns is an amazing tee with a beat ‘em up feel featuring some of Spideys biggest enemies. It’s nice to see some new designers names! Amazing how one specific topic can bring so much talent out of the woodwork.


Sometimes basic is best. Why beat about the bush when it comes to purchasing a Spiderman tee! Spider Web by Alex Solis is your run of the mill, standard Spidey tee. I don’t see any originality but maybe if you were choosing a tee for a friend average is best.



I like the colour red as much as the next dude however I think Spider-Man Wins by Daniel Castell Muiz has probably over done it slightly, it’s quite hard to work out what goes wear however as the name of the tee is Spider-Man Wins and you can make out that the man himself is standing on a pile of busted villains, this is deffo a tee of win!


This last one in my blog is my fella’s faves, I may be manipulated to use my few Threadbucks! Inertia by Alan Bao shows a moonlit battle between Spiderman and Venom. I really like it too, it’s powerful and everything about it works for me!


I have got really excited about these tees, I hope to see more Superhero shenanigans in the future! Thank you Threadless!



T-Shirts You Can Take To The Grave! 83 MM Review

by Ben_P on February 10, 2013

Wow first post of the New Year! (Sorry it has taken forever) Hope everyone’s year so far has been fantastic. I’d like to start off by saying a big thank you to the 83MM guys who have been unbelievably patient with my review. I’ve been very swamped with a new job and training and in general the whole holiday seasons. Enough of that and onto the review of an awesome T-Shirt!

Just a bit about 83MM, the name comes from the birthday of the designer coupled with the MM that is used for measuring film reels. These guys are trying to capture some of the most iconic scenes and characters in film history, from Batman to The Evil Dead. Luckily I received the latter which is a favourite film of mine! For all you film aficionados out there I need not say more about The Evil Dead and it’s cult status, it’s an all around hilarious and awesome film. Some of you lesser film buffs may recognise it as an upcoming film which is a remake of the 1981 original. Which you MUST watch, I cannot stress that enough. Ultimate B-Movie Cheese!



When I received the tee from 83MM I was blown away by how awesome their packaging and in general just the little things they’ve done for the whole experience of receiving it. For starters it came in a custom VHS box with information about the brand on there, and with it’s own rating which I thought was an awesome touch. This especially was a cool touch because The Evil Dead was first released on VHS so it really did fit in with the general tone of the product. Inside the VHS box was a lovely tissue wrapped tee. One of the first things I noticed about the tee was it’s fantastic tag that came with it that was shaped in the style of a VHS tape. Unfortunately I totally forgot to take a photo of it (Thankfully they sent me a photo of it to show you guys) but needles to say I was impressed, it’s the little things that really make up my personal experience of tee’s.



Onto the actual tee itself, it’s an 8 colour. Yes you read that right 8 colour! Print of one of the characters from The Evil Dead, I shan’t say who as I wouldn’t want to ruin it for anyone who may go and watch it now! Needless to say the quality of this is fantastic and the colours are vibrant, when asked why they didn’t use CMYK printing for a cheaper cost they couldn’t bring themselves to sacrifice the quality of the design, this alongside the fact they’ve used climate neutral tee from Continental Clothing shows they really had quality at the heart of their design.



The print shows mostly no visible signs of cracking and having been washed a fair few times already does appear to be very durable. There is only very slight cracks on the thin prints of the hair but that is to be expected of such a small area. The tee itself is very nice on the skin, nothing really to fault it and is a lot nicer than most generic tees, perhaps in the future they could use a bamboo tee for the ultimate in comfort but I don’t think it is really necessary. The use of the 8 screens really does make the design pop, and you start to appreciate the detail of the design as well. I’m very glad they chose to use 8 screens because at the price of £30.00 you really feel like you get your moneys worth, but in all fairness to them £30 is not that expensive compared to some tees you can get out there. This tee is also at a limited run of 200, which is also noted at the bottom of the tee itself in the form of a tag. I don’t know why but I’m a sucker for tags and it blends in nicely with the tee.



If The Evil Dead isn’t your cup of team they have tees from the films Seven, Batman, Drive, Total Recall, The Shining and Dawn Of The Dead. I take my hat off to 83MM and wish them all the best in the world with their designs, as a fan of films I can really appreciate the thought and effort that’s been put into bringing some of cinemas greatest moments to a fashionable tee for both men and women. The guys over at 83MM have also informed me that they have two new designs in the pipeline one from Silence of the Lambs and the other from The Thing. Colour me intrigued!
