Regan Smith Clarke’s shirts are awesome

Post image for Regan Smith Clarke’s shirts are awesome

It’s been a busy few days here at HYA – which is why though Regan Smith Clarke’s summer collection has been around for a little while, we’re only getting to it now. But what a doozy it is: well worth the wait. Regan designs shirts with a vintage art twist, with eye-popping designs which seem to have leapt from a 1940s newspaper comic strip. Coincidentally, that’s exactly the sort of thing that I love, so I’m craving these shirts very badly.

Trailblazer (above, $25) is a shirt which looks like it could well be at home on a wartime propaganda poster for kids, and would undoubtedly draw some looks for its big design and bright colours. Personally, it’s my favourite of the bunch.

But then you’ve got Lone Wolf ($25) – which comes in black and yellow – that manages to take the weird anthropomorphic animal thing that you see in all cartoons (Peppa Pig, Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny say hi) and create a new character. As you might tell from the two shirt names, Regan Smith Clarke’s all about giving the wearers of his t-shirts an identity and an ego boost.

Keeping the wartime propaganda look (and almost making me willing to buy a three-quarter length baseball tee) is the Stand and Deliver 3/4 length ($28). I personally think that wearing 3/4 length clothing on your top half is almost as dangerous as wearing 3/4 length shorts (it runs the risk of making you look like a baby) but the design on this is so beautiful that I’m almost willing to overlook it. Almost. Regan, if you’re reading this: put it on a normal tee. I’ll buy it in an instant.

“Cheeky Monkey” t-shirt by Paul Smith

paul smith cheeky monkey t-shirt

I met a monkey once in Florida on Spring Break.  He wore a diaper and was a pickpocket.  He tried to steal my watch right off my wrist.  He never gave me the finger though (true story).  I love surfing and I love me some monkeys, so combined it’s a winner in my book.  The only thing that stops me from purchasing besides the fact that it’s only sold in a men’s cut is the price because it’s so ridiculously high, but that’s to be expected with a Paul Smith. The original is $110.00 on his own website.  Otherwise this definitely makes me giggle.

Cost = £53.00 Buy it at Good Hood Store

Andy’s note: I didn’t know you had such expensive tastes, Amy!

Daily tee (and news) Roundup October 25th

Star Wars t-shirt

Really nice Star Wars design from TeeFury today.

Was this shirt at Qwertee previously on sale there or at another daily site? I look at so many that they blend into one another a bit.

Damn, that is one powerful looking unicorn. $10 today at Tilteed.

Sometimes I feel like the name of a t-shirt is an afterthought, but in the case of “Samurainoceros” I think it was the starting point. Get it at

I’m sure that there will be a large number of people that like this Shirt.Woot design, but I can’t count myself amongst them.

It’s a fun twist on the phrase, but I just don’t like that guys face. $10 today at RIPT.

Cool shirt on insaneetee at Uneetee today, $14.99 as usual, down from $24.99.

I really can’t decide what market 24tee are aiming at, they seem to go from cool-to-lame with invariable frequency.

Another oldie from Loviu.

I would never wear a t-shirt that makes reference to rage comics, but I’m sure that some people would, and Catch of the Day Tee must be hoping they’ll like this shirt.

The latest daily site on the block is called Shirt Punch, they just launched today with this shirt called ‘The Captain’. Tees at Shirt Punch are $10 from this Canadian site (they’re using Canada post to ship tees, so I presume they’re Canadian), and they shirts are silk-screened rather than DTG printed, which is somewhat unusual for a daily site.

The designer of this Shirt.Woot t-shirt e-mailed me to ask for a review, so this must be a weekend shirt since I missed it. It’s still available at Woot, though the price is now $15.

Urban Industry have got a big, big sale on, head on over to see if anything takes your fancy.


I think that this might be my favourite Flickr Find ever, what kind of a minds dreams up a Raccoon with an umbrella carrying a fish as if it were the morning newspaper?

As it happens, the mind of Jose Polido dreams up that kind of thing, and sells t-shirts and other things through an Etsy store.

Panther Hoodie by Partybots [Flickr Finds]

by Andy on August 1, 2008

Hey! Do you like panthers? Do you like hoodies? Do you like panthers printed onto hoodies? No? Oh. Sorry to have wasted your time.

If you happen to be a fan of panthers (and/or organic cotton), check out the blurbage:

Eco-Heather: Alternative earth’s eco-heather collection are now manufactured using organic cotton, recycled polyester & rayon made from naturally occurring polymers.

Panthers are pretty amazing. There are some really famous stories of them eating giant spiders and pterodactyls. They are so rad in fact, I painted this on my living room wall. It’s eyes follow me throughout the living room. I’m kind of hoping this artwork follows you around as well.

Gin & Juice by La Fraise

Gin & Juice by La Fraise

I don’t really know why the Strawberry are rocking this goth look in their product pics today, but I’m all for a bit of imagination when it comes to promo pics, so all power too them… even if they are obscuring the view of the design.
Gin & Juice by La Fraise

The design, for me, is classic La Fraise, its amazing how all of the different t-shirt design competitions manage to carve out their own style, and I think that La Fraise have accomplished that more than most other sites, and their brand is all the stronger for it. A cat and a fox DJing… only in France!

On Top’O the World

by Andy on August 31, 2006

I forgot that I had to blog today (even though I picked out the hoodie this afternoon from my big list) and now its almost 3AM, so I am pretty much phoning this one in.

Our zip-up hoodie is another super-soft but super-durable creation from our wringer-washed 380-gram fleece category. The Topo is discharge screen printed across the front of this jacket for a soft hand and features front and back Western yokes — a totally unique attribute for any hoodie. Topo signature stripe zipper taping and a custom zip-pull rounds out the look.

Check out the lines printed on the top of the hood, and that logo, it’s some kind of a rodent with wings, pretty bizarre, and yet pretty cool at the same time.

Not a t-shirt blog: The Unknown t-shirt

by Andy on August 16, 2006

Now, I’m sure that Nate from The Unknown T-shirt would be the first to admit that he doesn’t own the flashiest website in the world, but this guy is an artist, and I like his tees, so I ain’t going to rag on his site.

A lot of the tees have some kind of an animal theme to them, with a comic/cartoon style, and usually with a hand drawn look. There’s a lot of fun designs on show here, even if I don’t completely understand most of them ( maybe that’s the point?), and they’re offerend at a price that might persuade you that you don’t need another tee from Threadless.

The tee’s are printed on Gildan stock, which I personally like because it tends to be a bit heavier than AA (and the summer days are certainly getting shorter), and I’ve got a Gildan tee which is 4/5 years old and hasn’t got out of shape or faded at all.

To the Forest

Dalila Hoodie by Rebe

I’m pretty sure that the hotness of the girl in the pic isn’t influencing my opinion of this hoodie, but a hot girl and a cool hoodie is my idea of awesomeness.

The print is nice, possibly a bit busy for my liking, but I like the way that its screened over the left-hand pocket, you don’t see that very often, hurrah for innovation! The colour combination is vibrant, though usually with female hoodies I expect there to be more colour, but the use of white works well in this case.

It looks pretty fitted, so keep that in mind if you’re tempted to make a purchase. And I know that summer is coming (there isn’t a cloud in the sky outside my window) so I would recommend that you all follow the young ladies example and wear nothing under your hoodies, because, y’know, it’s hot.
