A Year of T-shirts

by Mr Four Fingers on January 27, 2013

A year of t-shirts

Well it has been almost a year since I joined Hide Your Arms and I figured, hell, why not recap on the t-shirts that have entered my wonky wardrobe since I  joined. These are a combination of reviews and tees I have bought for myself (what’s the world coming to). It has been great to meet new folk and learn about them and their brand journey, seeing what works and what needs work.

Best wishes for 2013 and I hope to do many more. My thanks goes out to you!

In no specific order (there are a few missing):


Colus Hunter t-shirtcolus t-shirt

One of the coolest designers I have had the pleasure of meeting (well via the web). I always get comments when I wear one of his designs. You can read a review of Colus here.

1st Tee – Hunter $26

2nd Tee – Amour Propre $26


Danse Macabre

Danse Macabre t-shirt

This is one of the weirdest t-shirts in my collection and also one of my favourites. The guys at my work did not notice the design until I showed it to them properly. Now every time I wear this Tee they can’t look at me. Indirectly via a mirror maybe. Danse Macabre have since closed their doors and started a new brand called Wood & Nails. There is a review of this t-shirt if you are interested even though you can’t buy it.

Three new designs from atslopes

by Andy on June 21, 2012

moola t-shirt

Nice release from atslopes, I can see that Moola design appealing to quite a few people, it’s a cool way to rework the famous logo. The black Brooklyn tee is also available as a tank top.


Post image for Gnome Enterprises releases new shirts with sale at Fab

Starting at 11am EST on April 16th (about 5 hours from the time of this post), Gnome Enterprises out of Brooklyn, NY will be celebrating the release of some new designs with a sale at Fab.

I first heard of and saw these guys when I was seeing Fleet Foxes in Brooklyn last summer. They had a little tent next to the bands merch and some of their designs caught my attention. I ended up buying one of their shirts and was quite happy with the purchase. Nice prints all on American Apparel tees, a lot of which are tri-blends.



red hook brooklyn t-shirt

During my brief forays into Brooklyn I can’t remember ever seeing this sign, which has apparently been like this for 30 years, but I think it works nicely as a tee design and I like the use of a little bit of red to perk up what would have otherwise been rather a subdued tee.

Costiness=$28 Buy it at Live Poultry (who apparently really like Brooklyn)


“The Jester” a t-shirt from The Cyclery

the cyclery

Since there are mountains and hills everywhere I look I don’t do a lot/any cycling, but I can certainly see the attraction for people, and I do hop on the exercise bike when I’m at the gym since I’m trying to get thighs of steel in time for snowboarding next month (would a rowing machine be better for this? Fitness fans please do jump into the comments). The Cyclery must presume that if people like to ride bikes then they’ll probably want to wear tees about them too since they’ve launched an Etsy store recently filled with a plethora of cycling based designs. They’ve offered to send a sample tee in so hopefully we’ll have a review up soon letting you know about the quality of their Alternative Apparel blanks and the silkscreen printing.

Brooklyn T-shirt by Live Poultry

by Andy on January 24, 2011

brooklyn t-shirt

“Brooklyn” silkscreened in the iconic style of the old industrial signs (like Kentile Floors and Eagle Clothing) that are seen throughout Brooklyn.

When I was followed on Twitter by someone with the username @LivePoultry I was expecting some kind of chicken activism project, not some cool tees.

Costiness=$27 Buy it at Live Poultry


“Brooklyn Brawlers” t-shirt by atslopes

by Andy on October 13, 2010

brooklyn brawlers t-shirt

I think that Brooklyn gets a bit of a bad rep, I’ve been twice and it was great. The first time I went to a party and saw Toofer from 30 Rock, then the second time I had some great cheesecake. I presume my experience is representative of the area, right?

Costiness=$20 Buy it at atslopes


Chor Bazaar: New tees for 2008

by Andy on July 18, 2008

Last time I mentioned Chor Bazaar it was just a two line mention in a Cotton Filter post, but they deserved more than that. So here are the latest tees from the Brooklyn-based indie-Indian company. So, this is four lines of text, double last time, at this rate they might get a decent paragraph by 2010.

Not pictured: two stories of beer bong awesomeness

When a blogger like me sees a picture of such a fine mustache he feels compelled to shoehorn it into a post in any way he can. But I would assume that at least a few of you would be interested to know that Seibei is going to be setting up shop at the Renegade craft fair in Brooklyn, and from the sounds of it has a pretty sweet spot right next to team Etsy.Get the full deets @ the Seibei blog
