Daily Tee & News Roundup for October 27th

by Andy on October 27, 2011

lady gaga halloween t-shirt

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shirt that references Lady Gaga before, so that’s something new from TeeFury.

Yup, the Disney logo is a shirt meme, fortunately the designs I’ve seen so far have been pretty cool, and I’d count this offering from Qwertee amongst that group.

Interesting shirt from Tilteed (that I presume they’ve sold before since they have model shots of it), nice big print on it. have been cranking out the new designs recently, huh?

Excellent work from former HYA writer Randyotter at Shirt.Woot today, this may well be the cutest penguin shirt I’ve ever seen.

Fun shirt from RIPT today, though of course no one will know you’re wearing it in Winter because you’ll have several layers on top.

Nicely done Portal shirt at The Yetee today.

Pity that you won’t be able to get this 24tee shirt in time for Halloween, I’m sure it could be useful with a few outfits.

Can someone explain the reference on this TeeRaiders shirt/hoodie? Is it referencing an actual event or is it purely invented by the artist?

Lovely starry negative space design by Loviu today, right up my street.

When memes and games collide at Shirt Punch today with ‘Snake in a Box’.

Catch of the Day Tee again don’t have anything on their site, I wonder why they don’t put up a message when they haven’t got a shirt to offer, or why they don’t just run the shirts for another day of sale.

Ugmonk have got a new lookbook that reveals no new tees, but does look pretty.

The Daily Street have a roundup of Johnny Cupcake‘s Halloween release event in London.

Dark Bunny Tees have put a new shirt up for pre-order, this one celebrates The Last Starfighter, and the first 100 orders will also receive a free Space Invaders styled poster.

Glennz has cut the price of all the ‘scary’ shirts in his catalogue to $13.95 until the end of the month.

How to start a clothing company takes a look at the pros and cons of screenprinting vs. direct to garment printing.

Mashable put out an article not-that-long-ago that called ‘10 Essential Tips for Startups‘, and judging by some of the things I get in my inbox I think that quite a few t-shirt companies could do with heeding some of their advice.

A Better Tomorrow must be getting close to relaunching their site, take advantage of the savings on their own shirts (this offer doesn’t apply to brand stores).

Review: Hand of Prey by Your Eyes Lie

by Andy on April 29, 2008


It’s always fun to get mail from unexpected places, and Thailand is one of those places. I’m pretty used to receiving mail from America by now, but the far East is still something of a novelty for me in terms of mail, and even though I know that Your Eyes Lie are a UK/Thai operation, I was expecting a package with stamps bearing the Queens face rather than a serious looking Thai guy. I’m sure the very mention of Thailand and clothes has immediately got some of you worrying about the conditions that these clothes were made in, but have no fear, these tees have nothing to do with little kids that have excellent sewing skills and a lot to do with a creative partnership between British graphic designer Ben Yarwood and Thai fashion designer Alisa Longsuwan.

I met Ben at Margin and we had a good chat about all things YEL and HYA, he told me all about the stresses of creating a tee to print on (no stock AAs here!), the significance of being picked up by Urban Outfitters, and gave me a better overall understanding for a brand that I knew I liked, but didn’t quite get.This tee is also something that I don’t quite get. The phrase ‘Hand of Prey’ is actually a Googlewhack, with the link going to a PDF about the History of Veterinary Medicine in the late Islamic Period… so I don’t think that’s where they got their inspiration from for this piece. But I think not knowing what it means is pretty cool too, t-shirts don’t necessarily have to mean something, and you don’t necessarily have to understand it if they do. The important thing is that they look cool, and undoubtedly this does, black and white tees always give you a lot of options when you’re pairing up your tee with something, which is why I like that combo so much.

Considering how much time YEL put into creating a quality t-shirt (I think they spent about six months testing and retesting different styles, cuts and material blends) its hardly a surprise that they’ve produced something impressive. The first tee of theirs that I reviewed is still going strong four months on, although you should bear in mind that since I own so many tees I don’t wear the same tee as often as most people do. It is quite a fitted shirt, and not particularly long in the body either, definitely a quality product, and the custom tags are a nice touch as well.

White Byrd Gang by Seventh Letter @ Karmaloop

White Byrd Gang tee by Seventh Letter @ Karmaloop

I am really digging the style of this tee, the kind of heavy/thick pen/marker print gives things a pretty DIY look. There is one thing that I think would kick this tee up a notch though, gold accents, how badass would this tee be if it had gold accents?

One of my friends once saw Hayden Panettiere on a plane and says that she’s a tiny tiny person, so believe or not, this may well actually be a full size photo.

Yep, it seems as if Primp has been gifting to celebs again, because Hayden was spotted a while back wearing this hoodie on it and I figured that it wouldn’t exactly take Gil Grissom to work out where it came from.

I have found this very same hoodie, for $165 from Revolve, but unfortunately it’s sold out. If you willing to settle for a different colour, then you can find it in grey at ShopBop for just $82.50 (half price, obviously). The repeating bird (is it a swallow?) print is pretty cool, and I think that it actually works better in the grey than the purple to be honest, although little Miss Bennett doesn’t exactly look terrible in it!


As was mentioned a while back, No Star have a new website, and a few new designs to go with it. If memory serves correctly, this Two Birds hoodie is a new design, I think…

The placement of the birds may be unfortunate for the ladies, but the birds don’t appear to be boobies, so at least you’ve got factual accuracy on your side in case of pervs. It’s a fairly simple design, but the outline around the birds is a real nice touch.

Cuckoo clocks, fantastic chocolate…

by Andy on May 4, 2006


… and apparently the Swiss are also quite adept at designing cool clothes, if the selection available at plus41 is anything to go by.

We also may well have found someone that ties with me as hottest product model in the history of HYA. Yeah, your right, she ain’t got nuffin on me.

This hoodie (that doesn’t seem to have a traditional hood) is actually more clever than I orginally gave it credit, I thought it was just a selection of geometric blocks, kinda like tetris with angles. But upon closer inspection I can see a bear, a dog, a bird, and a Swiss cross, there’s probably a load more that I haven’t seen too. Oh, and the print begins (or ends) in one of the kangaroo pouches, super nice.

Costiness=€75, from here.

*Just noticed that the design is called Tangram Animals, guess the bear shouldn’t have been much of a surprise afterall.*
