Hey everyone, its AndyRocksBluu again and I have a new review with the good people of Effing Gear. I’m not going to lie, when I first saw this clothing line I thought to myself “Is that a middle finger and a bird as a logo? Nope I think I’ll pass”. However, after getting my package and really dissecting what Effing Gear brings to the table, I have to say I’m pretty impressed. Dive In below and check out my Effing Review.

Design: 3.0-5.0

The two tees I received were pretty cool. One design was a logo tee and the other was an Eff Sandy relief tee.  Both designs are simple and clean designs that had textures to the image to give it an old tattered feel.

Price: Average/High

If you’re going to get an Effing Gear t-shirt it’s going to run about 26 bucks. For some people this might be a little high but in my opinion it’s about average. While I was looking over their logo tee I found plenty of added details ranging from hem tags, hang tags, and leather bracelets.

Quality: 4.0-5.0

This is where Effing Gear really shines. Their clothes are soooooo comfortable it’s not even funny. Once I put on my Eff t-shirt it didn’t come off until the end of the day. I definitely give them two thumbs up in the quality department.

Presentation: 4.0-5.0

I wasn’t sold on the concept but the presentation really won me over. Each shirt comes with an Effing hang tag and leather bracelet. I really wish I received a little note that the leather string was a bracelet because I almost threw it in the garbage. Luckily for me I found out what it was when I visited the website. (the bracelet is a nice touch.) PS the tag line in the washing instructions “put some Effing clothes on” is the icing on the cake.

Yanagida Hands On Review

by AndyRocksBluu on November 10, 2012

Hey everyone it’s AndyRocksBluu and I’m very excited to bring you a hands on review on a new clothing brand based out of California called Yanagida. Yanagida better known as YGDA was started as a custom label/trim company and decided to branch out to making their own brand. YGDA have worked with Diamond, Rocksmith, Dope Couture, and tons of other brands helping with their branding, trim and accessories. In case you were wondering YGDA stands for killer whale and has the tag line “top of the food chain”. If you like what you hear so far then Dive into my full review.

Design 3.5 out of 5.0

I like the two designs that Yanagida brings to the table. Both T-shirts are simple and clean graphics. However as much as I like these designs there really is nothing special about it. My favorite T-shirt out of the two happens to be the YGDA logo tee.

Price $32- $38 (High End)

I know the price tag might turn some people away but YGDA definitely goes through hoops to prove that their product is worth the price. YGDA did an amazing job of adding eye-catching details to their products. However you can get a full explanation in the presentation category.

P.S. when I got my package it came with a handful of buttons and YGDA logo key chains. Trust me….You want the key chains.

Quality 4.5 out of 5.0

I’m proud to say that YGDA did a fantastic job in the Quality Category. Both t-shirt’s felt buttery soft and fit me like a glove. Another thing I’m happy to see on these t-shirt’s are woven neck tags. In my personal opinion, I always feel that woven neck tags make a brand look more established.

Presentation 4.5 out of 5.0

YGDA hands down blew me away when it came to the category of Presentation. Each t-shirt came with three hem tags that explained what YGDA stood for and the date the company was started: this added another level of branding to the t-shirts. The good people at YGDA also added cool hangtags and limited YGDA coins that you can collect and trade in for rare limited YGDA pieces!! I personally thought that was a nice touch. This small attention to detail really separates them from the dozens of clothing lines out there.

Overall 4.0 out of 5.0 – Great

Yanagida is a solid brand with a very bright future. I can’t wait to see what they release! You check them out on
