T-shirt News for April 3rd

by Andy on April 3, 2012

beetlejuice t-shirt

Apologies about missing a few days of the news and some general posting, I was visiting a relative in hospital on Friday, went away for a friend’s birthday at the weekend, then I took on the (very) temporary role of delivery driver yesterday, but I’m back now and things should be normal soon enough. Actually, I might miss tomorrow’s news, but after that things should be all good, I promise!

Beetlejuice makes an appearance at TeeFury.

Funny Aliens shirt at Shirt.Woot.

Transformers are a part of this charity tee at RIPT today.

T-shirt news for February 14th

by Andy on February 14, 2012

klimt star wars the kiss

Hello, hello, hello and happy Valentine’s Day! I had a great holiday (though my snowboarding inflicted bruises may say different), and then went to see Justice play in Manchester last night, but now it’s back to reality and back to the serious business of t-shirts (and camera accessories at Rigu, of course).

TeeFury have a Star Wars-ified take on Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’.

Shirt.Woot believe the pen is mightier than the sword (or possibly equal to it).

RIPT have a Game of Thrones t-shirt that looks cool that I don’t understand.

brooklyn industries t-shirt sale

Yes, $14.99 isn’t that cheap for t-shirts, you can get them cheaper a lot of places at the moment (cough Threadless cough), but it’s still a pretty good sale at Brooklyn Industries.

Brooklyn Industries T-shirt Sale

Even though there is a picture of a lady on the image rest assured that this sale is open to fellas as well, and there is a lot of items available to pick up a bargain on. As you’d expect the 60% off is a bit of a rarity, but there are still decent discounts available.

new york crimes t-shirt

I see what you did there Brooklyn Industires, very clever.

In my visits to New York I must admit that I never really felt it to be a dangerous city, maybe I was sticking to the nice parts, but I did get around and I never felt like my safety was at risk or I’d get mugged. I’m sure it would have been a different case a couple of decades ago.

I like New York Facebook shirt

I wonder if the person at Facebook who designed that little thumb ever envisaged it having such a large impact on the world. Sidenote, I watched ‘The Social Network’ a couple of weeks back and really enjoyed it, good thing I’ve kept HYA to myself until now, if anyone tried to sue me now claiming they started the site it could cost me tens of pounds.

Sorry I didn’t catch this one earlier but this weekend Brooklyn Industries have had a 25% off sale going on. Just input the coupon code FF25 at the checkout before 11:59 EST today (June 14th) and you’ll get 25% off your entire purchase.

The promotion is also going on in their brick & mortar stores, but requires you to print out an e-mail and show it to them, and I can’t think of a way that I can easily get the e-mail to you guys in reasonable time to take advantage of the offer in-store.



I used to watch the X Flies every week, but I couldn’t bring myself to watch the new film because I didn’t want to be disappointed, you know what I mean?

I did a little digging and couldn’t get any answers (irony alert!), is the image on this tee related to some kind of a conspiracy? I couldn’t find it reproduced anywhere.

District Wool Blazer by Brooklyn Industries

by Andy on November 6, 2008

I like blazers/jackets, they make me feel classy. I’ve never been too crazy about wool blazers before, but this one certainly turned my head, and the pocket-watch print on the inside pocket is a nice touch (peep the gallery for that).

Here’s a tee for all the economics nerds in the house!

I never thought I’d see a t-shirt about The Golden Ratio that I thought looked cool, but Brooklyn Industries have achieved that feat, and so I take my hat off to them.

I’m mostly posting this because I really liked the little bird (that looks a bit like a pigeon to me) yelling “cheap” in the top corner of the graphic, but you also can’t argue with the savings!

Brooklyn Industries

*Update: Want even more savings? BI just gave us a new coupon code, if you spend more than $40, you can get free ground shipping by using the coupon code HYASHIP in the checkout.

Oh damn, I totally forgot to post this, which is a bit silly since it is a code that’s totally exclusive to us HYA folk (unless someone republishes it…), although it does have an open ended expiration date so hopefully its still working. If you spend $50 or more in the Brooklyn Industries online store you can get $5 off by using the coupon code BKIHYA. I think they dropped a new line of graphic tees last week, so there should be plenty for you to pick from.

Argos Jacket by Brooklyn Industries

I thought we’d kick the week off with something simple that would be good at showing off a t-shirt design with a graphic on it. The way that the stripes run across the body and the sleeves, and the contrast hood lining and drawstring is pretty cool. A 100% nylon garment probably won’t be too nice when summer comes around though…

Adonis Blazer by Brooklyn Industries

by Andy on March 11, 2008


When I was in Hong Kong I spent quite a lot of my shopping time trying to find a decent blazer and come up with nothing (HK is not the friend of the larger gent). I’ve got one nice blazer and feel good (and look even better!) when I’m wearing it, sometimes its good to class things up a bit, even if my friends to think I’m attempting to become a long-lost member of the Backstreet Boys just by wearing a jacket.

I’m not sure if I’d buy a blazer over the net, but this does look damned sharp. Personally, I’d like to see something a bit more interesting going on in the lining, white is fine but why not have a bit of colour to pep things up a bit?

Brooklyn Industries: Griffin Instarsia

by Andy on September 27, 2006

I realised today that I simply don’t do enough sweater posts, and it’s not because I have anything against them, there just doesn’t seem to be as many out there when compared to the ever-popular hoodie (zipped or not).

Luckily our friends over at Brooklyn Industries can always be relied on to put out quality designs, and whilst I’m pretty sure that the Griffin Instarsia design isn’t exactly new, its still good and will provide some much needed warmth now that the nights are closing in and the leaves are turning (expect me to say that for the next couple of months).

I like the stripes on the cuffs and hem, it feels like a bit of retro nostalgia. The griffin design on the chest might be a bit Pringle-ish for some, but I’d argue that it suits the style of the jumper, especially considering the stripes.

mmm… stealing other people’s ideas

by Andy on May 15, 2006


I noticed that Jungle Life posted about some one of a kind hoodies that are available from one of my favourite NY labels, Brooklyn Industries, and when I say favourite, I mean they gave me free clothes.

Much like Jungle Life my favourite from the range is the bike hoodie (zip-up version), the idea of collage hoodies is pretty interesting and the colour layering is very nice, and I can personally recomment their ink, I don’t know what it’s made of, but gosh-darn its soft. There are also 3 squares of fabric stitched on the front (at least I think it is, doesn’t seem like ink on the front).

Costiness=$84.00 from Brooklyn Industries (get a 10% discount with the coupon code “skyline06″ – no quotation marks). And remember, it is one of a kind.

Brooklyn Industries takes HYA to the fair

by Andy on April 11, 2006

Brooklyn Industries may have only been featured yesterday, but they hooked me up with the Cyclone tee from their new line of Coney Island inspired designs which arrived today and I wanted to review it as soon as I could. Which meant that once again I got to pretend to be a model (because all models take pictures of themselves in the bathroom).The shirt is real nice, I don’t know what they print onto but its good and soft. The design is interesting, a mix of detail (the coaster) and simple rounded shapes (the sea?). Also, I’ve never owned an ‘eggplant’ coloured shirt, I usually stick to the regular ‘man’ colours (black, blue, red, grey, blue), but I really like this.

One great little detail is actually on the back, and I love printing on the back! It’s a ticket to/for Coney Island (I never made it there when I visited NY so I don’t know how that works), which is a really good idea for the new line.

If you want a 10% discount on your order you can use the coupon code “skyline06″, as was mentioned by Shimone yesterday.

Costiness=$28, URL here, and their stores throughout the New York area.

Thanks again to Allison at BI for getting me involved with promoting the new line, they’ve been featured in a lot of really impressive publications (Newsweek > HYA) so its nice to be thought of.

There’s a fair few pictures after the jump, including that ticket detail.

Cool breeds cool

Shimone from San Francisco-centric blog Jungle Life has been good to Hide Your Arms. Shimone has already sent 2 leads my way, so it was high time for me to ask “what hides your arms?”

I picked up the Verse Rhyme hoodie in Dijon from Brooklyn Industries. I was nervous about the bold colors at first but when it arrived I saw they were muted to more natural tones for an effective dose of casual. The pictures on the site don’t really do it justice so I’ll fill you in on some additional details.

The interior of the hoodie is completely lined with fleece making it incredibly soft to the touch. The zipper handle spells out the word “Brooklyn” (this you can see from the zoom image on the site) and when zipped all the way up rests cleverly at the neck. The construction is magnificent from top to bottom – everything is made to last – and the sizing is spot on. Because of the colors used it goes with just about everything – making a flashy statement with jeans or a subtle statement under a coat.

Furthermore, it’s available for both men and women. Men in Dijon and Grey, Women in Grey and Eggplant. If you’re looking to go bold I’d go with the Dijon for men and Grey for women or tone it tone with the Grey for men and Eggplant for women.

Brooklyn Industries has quickly become one of my favorite labels for their frequent sales, affordable prices, great use of color, fresh designs, attention to detail, and quality construction.

The Verse Rhyme Hoodie is on sale right now for $48 (men) and $44 (women) and can be purchased for an additional 10% off using the coupon code “Skyline06″.

Brooklyn Industries actually released a new line of clothing on Sunday (yesterday) inspired by Coney Island to coincide with the opening of the park for the season. Look out for another review of Brooklyn Industries in the near future, though I may struggle to better Shimone’s excellent review!
