We are excited to kick off the summer/fall by releasing our first industrial sports tee NEW YORK CHAMPS 1937. Before the mega multimillion dollar sports contracts, the stardom, or the fame, American athletes played the game of basketball for the sheer love of it. The New York Champs 1937 shirt pays homage to the players during the industrial era that embodies this belief. Our goal was to create a real world industrial sports t-shirt. The lower hem of the shirt is hand sewn with our workshop approved tag. Lastly each shirt will come with a custom 4×6 N.Y. Champs 37 linocut blocked in waterbased ink. For a limited time we are offering 10% off use discount code CHAMPS10 @ checkout.

Andy: It really is refreshing to have a brand submit themselves that are actually allowed to sell the tees on their site rather than crossing their fingers and hoping that they don’t get a DMCA letter.
Cordycep and Hannibal Honey Badger tee!
Andy: Not really my style but I can see it appealing to others.
A city that eats its young…despite all the struggle we’re still New Yorkers at heart. Unleash the inner New Yorker in you!
Andy: I quite like the concept and the mockup looks good but I wonder if the effect would be so pronounced in reality.

My name is Mario T. and i am founder and creative designer for FLYING PACKS CO. Flying Packs is about unity and exploring ones own creativity. I would love for you to have/checkout&criticize our T-shirts! feel free to check-out our first collection! I do recommend our FLYINGPANDA T-SHIRT, FLYINGPIG tshirt AND/OR OUR wolFPack Ts (theyve been local fav out here in SF,CA).
Andy: Pretty cool designs!
Thanks for all you do, you’ve been holding down this site forever now. I’m not sure if you watch Regular Show or Cartoon Network, but we just came out with an official Regular Show collaboration featuring realistic versions of the main characters Mordecai and Rigby. They posted about the release on their Facebook page with a video of Olan and Regular Show creator JG Quintel. We might come out with a round two with a couple more characters as well.
Andy: Gotta admit that I’ve never heard of Regular Show in my life, but one of the good things about these designs is that I can like them without understanding the references or characters, which I usually take to be the sign of a good tee.
My best friend and I aren’t the ones that want to spend 4 years of our life getting a degree. So we decided to start a clothing company. But it just couldn’t be a plain old company. We had to stand for something. So we thought about it and we decided we would stand for being yourself and being happy. So that’s how we came up with BYBH Clothing. We slapped our name and saying on our shirt and that’s how we started. So be yourself, be happy!
Andy: I’m just going to say it; these t-shirts are not very good. The text really does look like it has been slapped on there, when with a bit more consideration and a different type treatment this could have been a nice shirt, but as it is this looks more like it’s a promo for something than being from a clothing brand. Still, they are just starting out so hopefully they will be able to learn from this (something tells me that they won’t be selling a lot outside their circle of friends and family) and push on with new designs which have wider appeal.
Lookin’ goooooood! Grim Reaper shirt is probably my favourite, very wearable.

Show your love for this American guilty pleasure with The Mountain’s Hot Dog tee!

Andy: I’ve actually seen people in public wearing tees from The Mountain, so I can only imagine what other food based shirts I’ll be seeing people in for years to come. Ridiculous design, but I think I actually prefer these to the animal ones.
Kineda x Ultra Street Fighter IV SDCC exclusive! Five t-shirts featuring the new characters from USFIV: Hugo, Elena, Poison, Rolento and Decapre! Purchase these at the Capcom Booth at SDCC but know that quantities are extremely limited so show up early to get yours!
Andy: That seems like a pretty impressive ‘get’ for Kineda, good on them!
Great news everybody! Jack of all Trades just released some awesome new designs, part of the Extreme Designs Collection.
They have gone the extra mile to include a variety of amazing printing techniques to the art. Parts of Batman, Spider-Man and Superman are printed with distressed shimmer Ink and parts of the paint splatters have been printed with puff ink to mimic the effect of actual paint being splattered on the shirt!
Check them out and let us know what you think!
Andy: Pretty damn badass!
THE CIRCUS SOCIETY
I am the Founder and Creative Director for The Circus Society. A collection of graphic tanks and tees for men and women. After graduating with a degree in Design, I haven’t stop my passion to design and create inspirational pieces of art work. Most of my art work is inspire by music, life, and my journey.
Andy: Founder AND Creative Director? Maybe I should start calling myself the Founder, Editor, CEO, and CFO of Hide Your Arms? Designs look pretty cool though.
Retro Summer Breeze Tee! Free Shipping on all orders! No code needed!
Andy: I’m pretty sure that I’d look stupid in this shirt, but that guy actually looks pretty cool.
Can someone explain the Mr. Cleaner reference to me, I’ve tried to Google it but nothing is coming up. Both shirts are $14 this week instead of $19.99.
Milk are an interesting brand because the first time we saw them they had a hoodie with milk bottles on the drawstrings, that’s something that you don’t expect to see from a new brand, it’s a custom product, not just a design slapped onto an American Apparel garment while they’re getting a feel for the clothing world. Bearing that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that this Summer collection shows a similar polish and a bit of a change from the norm. Here’s what they had to say about it:
It features various garments which have been manufactured and printed to the best quality. Various printing techniques have been used including dye sublimation and up to 6 colour screen prints! Our designs also come back stronger with different patterns and illustrations such as “Cowmo” (camouflage mad from cows), a Froot Loops print and even a pop art inspired pin up girl. We have also added a really nice Chambray oxford shirt into the mix with a milk spill pocket detail.
Tees are £18 or £22, vests £14, and items from the last collection are on sale too so you can grab tees for as low as £8.
I love simple graphics and giving inanimate things personalities. Circle & Line is my attempt to put the two on the canvas of a T-shirt.
This one is for the rainy days. Alternatively, the sunny days when it is raining inside.
Andy: I really like stuff like this, it’s simple but really charming and just about anyone would be happy wearing it.
Sarah Bevan is a young designer and crafter based in Dublin, Ireland. She discovered tshirt design and crafting in college. Her love of all things nerdy means that her designs are bold, funny and usually featuring a pun or a fandom reference. She is a fan of strong lines, bold colours and pop culture references. Support Sarah into her foray as an artist on Designbyhumans.
My goal with art is to make people feel happy when they get a reference or see a pun and hopefully laugh and appreciate the humour and share it with their friends.
Give Back to the community:
The more profit that Sarah is able to accumulate, the more she can give to Gheel.ie, a not for profit Autism awareness project that helps adults with Autism in Dublin. She has run for them twice in mini-marathons aiding almost 250 euro for them and hopes to do more.
Andy: I can’t see that many people wanting to walk around with ‘Little Miss Incest’ written on their chest, but it is pretty funny.
OsoPorto is a line of t-shirts (and prints and other goods) now in its final week on Kickstarter. The line is loosely themed around the Southern California surf neighborhood of El Porto in Manhattan Beach.
El Porto, a small surfing neighborhood near LAX Airport, was a 10-block town of its own from 1911-1980. It still has its own character, if not its own borders. Celebrating everything from the beach to California’s signature bear with clean, modern, typographic designs, OsoPorto is a line of t-shirts, design prints, and other goods for those who know El Porto or just identify with its California spirit.
We are nearing our main funding goal on Kickstarter with just under a week to go. If we go beyond the goal and can hit our first stretch goal, two more designs are added to the line.
Check out all the details here: http://kickstart.osoporto.com
Andy: I’ve caught this one a little late since I was away for the weekend, but there’s still a few hours to get in on it if you like the designs. It’s a fairly local line though so I would imagine you need to feel some kind of attachment to El Porto to really ‘get’ the shirts, but they’re generally fine for non-locals too. They’ve already hit their Kickstarter target so if pledge you know the money will be leaving your account, which is always reassuring.
