alzheimer's t-shirt

I really like this shirt from Not Naked For A Reason, they’ve released it to help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s, I don’t think any money from the sales goes to a charity but they are just trying to make people stop and think, and taking that as a starting point for a design is pretty cool.

Alzheimer’s has always struck me as being an incredibly sad disease. I can’t remember what TV show or movie I was watching (and I promise that wasn’t meant to be a joke), but there was this old man that had Alzheimer’s and every day he would wake up not knowing that his wife had died, and he would remember later in the day, he just said “Oh” then looked sad; it was just heartbreaking that someone would have to go through that every day, the grieving process would never end and it would always hurt. I’ve actually teared up a bit just writing that, funny what love can do to you.

Three new impossibly good shirts from Ugmonk

by Andy on November 9, 2011

ugmonk impossible shapes

I really like these new shirts from Ugmonk, they are in keeping with Jeff’s simple style but they still look very good, with that little going onto the tee there’s not much margin for error and as usual Ugmonk has come up with the goods. Each shirt is $24 and available now.


humpty dumpty t-shirt

At least they managed to put him back together again. I think this is one of my favourite Glennz designs for a while.

robocop mr. t t-shirt by glennz

Not often that I post a yellow t-shirt, not that I have anything against them, they just don’t seem to be the canvas of choice for a lot of designers. Having said that, I should probably describe this Glennz design as ‘gold’ rather than ‘yellow’, especially considering the pop culture icon featured on it.

unicorn unicycle t-shirt

I don’t think I have any words that an adequately describe this t-shirt.

senor citizen astrix prints t-shirts

Part of me is a little disappointed in myself for chuckling at such a lame pun, but thankfully a much more important part is telling me to enjoy this fun t-shirt, especially since it’s in such a lovely style.

Costiness=$18 Buy it at Astrix Prints


ideabomb t-shirt

Really nice colourway on this shirt, seagrass (I think that’s what they call it, basically it’s light green) is one of my favourite shirt colours, especially when the sun is out in Summer.

Costiness=$22 Buy it at Choke Shirt Company (with a name like that you’d expect much darker tees, right?)


mario t-shirt

I’m not used to this kind of speedy release schedule by Go Ape Shirts, what’s happening over there guys!?

Nice concept for a shirt and it is certainly well executed, good job Ian. Oh, and Boo Boo Walker has been reprinted too.

mindless manufacturing t-shirt

I know I’ve mentioned this tee in the past when Lead & light dropped a few new items, but I saw it again yesterday and felt the need to respost, it’s just a gret t-shirt.

“Swiss Ninjas” t-shirt by Glennz

swiss ninjas t-shirt

I’m actually pretty sure that I’ve seen multi-tools that are quite a lot like this with different screwdriver heads and allen keys on it, so maybe this Glennz design isn’t that far fetched.

Costiness=$19.95 Buy it at Glennz (am I crazy or has there been a bit of a refresh in the design at Glennz?)


wotto ghost t-shirt tilteed

At the time of writing you’ve got less than a day and a half to pick up this spooky collage design by prolific t-shirt designer Wotto at Tilteed.


swallowed in the sea at tilteed

I really should be posting about Tilteed more often. So I will. This is their latest design and you’ve got two days and eight hours to buy it for $12.


I’m really excited to announce the next step in the Seibei weekly tee program – bringing cartoonists and weird artists I’m friends with to a wider audience.

My first guest tee in almost two years is the super chill and ready for summer GHOST BRO by Mia Schwartz, a cartoonist and artist living in New York. Like all weekly tees before it, it’s on sale for one week at a special preorder price, and if it’s popular enough, it will enter the regular catalog. If not, who knows?

Printed on American Apparel Mint tees with pigmented discharge inks. Hope you like it!

[Andy: With me being in Berlin at the weekend the submitted posts have stacked up a bit so I’m trying to post them without it being a flood of submissions, which has led to me posting this weekly tee with just a couple of days left to order it (orders end May 13th at noon PST), so if you want it, order it.]

fictional weapons t-shirt

Of course it’s by Chop Shop, who else has spent the past couple of years putting silhouettes of things onto t-shirts? Doesn’t stop it being cool though, I think that my favourite is the shark with a frickin’ laser beam on it’s head!

Costiness=$25 Buy it at Chop Shop’s temporary Supermarket shop

Two kick-ass new tees from Yema Yema

by Andy on May 5, 2011

new t-shirts from Yema Yema

I like Yema Yema, and not just because Mercedes bought one of my HYA posters, but because she’s carving out a really nice niche for herself in the world of crazy character tees, if you look at the whole catalogue it’s really consistent and sticks to a theme which I’m sure looks good to someone new visiting the store for the first time. The two new tees are both $15 each, printed on American Apparel, and look damn good to me.

Logo Tri-blend now on pre-order!

by Andy on April 15, 2011

Hide Your Arms tri-blend mockup

A couple of hours ago I put the new HYA logo outline tri-blend t-shirt into the HYA store for pre-order, mega yay!

I expect the shirts to arrive at Hide Your Arms HQ and be shipping by the end of the month (barring any hold ups), so if you want to make sure you get one put your order in now. I’ve only ordered 30 or this shirt, and I’m having one, and my girlfriend will be having one, and I’ve already had a couple of pre-orders from friends, so that’s got us down to 26 shirts left already, factor in that those 26 are split across 5 different sizes and it’s pretty clear that stock will run low on certain sizes pretty soon (especially XXL, only 2 of them are being produced). Is that enough hype for you? If so, I suggest that you suspend all brain functions, especially the ones related to rational thought, head over the the tri-blend pre-order page and make your purchase as soon as possible.

The tees are £16 + shipping at the moment (rising to £18 + shipping after the pre-order phase) and you can save yourself at further 10% by using the coupon code TRIBLENDISMYBLEND which is good for 10% off anything in the store, not just the pre-order tri-blend. The shirts are American Apparel TR401 tri-blends in athletic grey with a soft dark grey print for the logo. As ever all orders will be shipped out by Royal Mail 1st class post, and each package will include one free pin badge, one free die cut sticker, and probably a small packet of Haribo so that you get a sugar high, making you more excited about your purchase than you probably should be.

Obviously I don’t have it in hand to say how awesome it is, but I have a really good feeling about this shirt, mostly because I know it will feel amazing because it’s very hard to go wrong with a tri-blend and I know that the colourway is going to work really well.


pinball t-shirt by go ape t-shirts

This shirt is a bit of a departure for Go Ape, I don’t really think of them as the kind of folks that use a shirt in a physical way like this, they tend to be more likely to use it as a canvas. Not that it matters, the shirt looks damn good and unless I’m very much mistaken it’s an original concept too, which is pretty unusual nowadays. Looking at that product pic, have you lost some weigh Josh? Lookin’ good, brother!

Really.

“Coffee Pong” funny t-shirt by Glennz

by Andy on March 10, 2011

coffee pong t-shirt

I’m not really a coffee drinker, every so often I’ll get a cup from Costa or Starbucks laced with masses of sugar and syrup, but at home I never have a desire to make a cup.

architect t-shirt

After a few days off (off HYA, I worked 27 hours on Monday and Tuesday, boy am I tired!), what better way to return to regular posting than with this stunning t-shirt from Random Objects. I really look forward to receiving an e-mail from them each month or so, because I know that there’s going to be digital gold contained in it. They really have been consistently excellent for a long time now, and this t-shirt quoting Sir Francis Bacon certainly doesn’t break that tradition of releasing cool tees with kinda-inspirational quotes on them.
