Star Wars & Halo t-shirts from 604Republic

by Andy on March 28, 2011

Ahhh 604Republic, they really know how to make tees that appeal to geeks.

On a Wednesday night me and my mates regularly meet to play some Halo, we aren’t very good, but we have fun and that’s more important, that and trolling the 14 year-olds we’re playing against. ‘The Chiefs’ is available for $19.95.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a 604R release if they didn’t include something that related to Star Wars. Thinking about it there aren’t too many shirts out there prominently feature Ewoks, and even less of them mashup Ewoks with Predator! ‘PredEwok’ is available for $19.95.


“Lucky 13″ tattoo t-shirt by Death Fresh

by Andy on February 18, 2011

tattoo t-shirt

It feels to me that the whole market for tattoo tees has a pretty poor reputation just because there are a couple of labels out there who have become very famous and very rich for creating douchewear and selling it to douches. I know that the word ‘douche’ is a bit last year, and probably the year before that, but when I see a guy wearing Ed Hardy, I can’t help but think that they’re probably a bit of a douche.

Death Fresh however, are making designs that are influenced by tattoo art, and they look damn good and damn wearable. They riff on some fairly familiar themes, like the shirt above, but they’ve got some more unusual styles too that you wouldn’t expect to see painted onto some scary looking dudes shoulder.

walter is my homeboy fringe t-shirt

I stopped watching Fringe mid-way through the first season, I didn’t have any problems with the show, there’s just a lot of good stuff on TV and I wasn’t all that bothered with it, not really my genre. Tell me, friends, have I made a big mistake, should I endeavour to catch up?

“Better than I deserve” by Ugmonk

by Andy on January 17, 2011

better than I deserve ugmonk t-shirt

I had a massive analogy comparing Ugmonk‘s tees to an annoyed baseball stadium janitor who was sick of having to clear up all the balls in the car park… but frankly just writing that sentence was enough effort, can you imagine how long it would have taken to do it properly?

It’s a good looking shirt in typical Ugmonk fashion, and if you’d like, you can see the making of the design here.

finish him karate kid t-shirt by glennz

I looked at this design and thought to myself “isn’t this a bit normal for Glennz?” And then I noticed that the title wasn’t just ‘Finish Him’ it was ‘Finish Him – No Can Defence this’ which got me Googling, and then it all made sense, this tee is an homage to that most 80s of films (let’s pretend the remake never happened), Karate Kid. I was getting worried that Glenn had lost his touch for a second there.

Velo Nuit by Dargelos

bike shirt

Here’s something cool, a t-shirt that also doubles up as safety clothing!

At first I just thought that they were just brightly printed, but it turns out that some of the wheels on the bikes in the design are printed with a reflective ink so that it makes you easier to see when you’re out cycling on the road. Neato!

Australian Cities by La Revolucion

by Andy on July 7, 2010

australian cities t-shirt

You know what’s interesting about Australians, they all seem to absolutely love Australia, and how do I know this? Because everywhere you go (bearing in mind I’ve never been to Australia) there are Aussies banging on about how great their homeland is, if it’s so great, why are you in a rainy part of Britain!?

I kid, I really like having people from lots of different cultures living in my area, since the Lake District is a pretty quiet place and it’s good to hear a different accent.

Costiness=$29 (AUD, presumably) Buy it at La Revolucion

AAITSKI! sell hoodies now

by Andy on June 22, 2010

afroboy brown hoodie by aaitski

The comment I hear most about HYA is that I don’t feature hoodies enough, and I agree with you wholeheartedly, considering this blog started life as a hoodie site it has lost it’s way a bit in that regard, so I will try to mention hoodies on a more regular basis. I quite like AAITSKI!, their style is really accessibly and wearable, but for me personally I think that the prints are often too small. I’m generally a fan of big prints so I’m a bit biased, but a cartoon style like that with big, thick lines is practically crying out for a larger print. It is still quite a nice hoodie though, I’ve got to give them that.

Gulf oil spill charity t-shirt

Yup, brown stuff is still going from the sea floor to the surface, so buy this tee, from which 100% of the profit (no word on what that figure is) goes to the National Wildlife Federation to help with the clean-up. And it’s printed on an organic American Apparel t-shirt, so at least this tee isn’t contributing to more chemicals going into the water

The End is Near by Glamour Kills

the end is near brown t-shirt by glamour kills

Yes, this t-shirt is completely ridiculous, the design elements have all the making of a car-crash-pileup of a tee, and yet, somehow, somewhere between the calming effect of the black and white print laid out on a brown t-shirt, the potential craziness of this shirt is muted enough to produce a damned wearable tee.

big lebowski movie t-shirt

There are quite a few companies out there with t-shirt lines based around films, such as Last Exit to Nowhere, and Dark Bunny Tees. now you can add another name to that list, Malgusto. This Spanish-based brand created by a boyfriend & girlfriend team do take a slightly different tack though, creating shirts that look as if they could be used as promo posters for the movies. Their actual site is in Spanish, but it’s not that hard to work out what is what, and that’s coming from someone that hasn’t been to Spain for about a decade, and even then could only order food in the native language. They do have an English FAQ though to cover your most pressing concerns.

I picked their Big Lebowski shirt to show you today because this is the internet, and apparently everyone on the internet loves The Big Lebowski, and why not, because it is an excellent film, and this is a pretty fitting tribute of a shirt to such a fine movie. Malgusto were kind enough to set up a coupon code of HIDEYOURARMS that is good for 10% off, so enjoy that!

Back To The Roots by short for LaFraise

by Andy on April 20, 2010

lafraise t-shirt

This kind of print isn’t the kind of thing that you usually see being printed by laFraise, if doesn’t really fit with the usual LaFraise look, but that doesn’t stop it from being a good looking tee with a really nice colour palette.

Costiness=€23 Buy it at LaFraise


geek t-shirt

Very cool concept, and it’s unusual for negative printing to take up so much of a tee. I wonder how far round the shirt the print goes, hopefully at least to your sides, because anything less than that could look a bit lame.

Burgervetica by David Schwen at Threadless

Post image for Burgervetica by David Schwen at Threadless

Bit of a pity that this wasn’t released by Threadless last week, because it would have been a shoe in for being high up on the food tee list. Unecessary fact o’ the day, last week I made and ate 3 burgers, each better than the last, and it turns out that I actually like gherkins in my burger, but only if they’re fresh and crunchy, not the limp McDs kind.

Y’know, I’m actually not even that big of a fan of Star Wars, but I do like finding and writing about them since you guys seem to like them, and this design from Snorg Tees really tickles my geek bone. Actually, I’ve never seen Attack of the Clones, which you could argue does make me a proper fan!

Hoodies from Toly Monkys

by Andy on January 15, 2010

This info is a month out of date, but if you haven’t seen it before, then I’m sure we can just pretend it’s new and that I ‘m a really on-the-ball blogger. Tolky Monkys, Spains finest character-based clothing label, have released four brand new hoodies for men and women. This is the second time that they’ve released hoodies, and judging by the fresh dusting of snow I woke up to this morning their timing couldn’t be better. One thing I notice about all the desgins is that the colour palettes are all spot on, they really work, but my favourite aspect of these hoodies? They all have custom hood linings that refelct the character on the design of the hoodie, I love it when a company puts in a contrasting hood lining, it can turn a good hoodie into a great one. I think this might be one of those instances, to the point at which I’ll accept the €49 price point, because you could pay an awful lot more for an awful lot less.


Ampersandwich by Simplebits

by Andy on January 10, 2010

If there was one character that defined typography tees last year, it was the ampersand. It was everywhere, and I don’t really have a problem with that because as far as characters go, it is interesting, you’re never going to see ‘l’ as the hot new character, are you?

Sandwiches are always popular, I was just thinking a couple of days ago that I really like cooking (I made my own pastrami a few days ago), but I’d never be able to own a restaurant because I don’t think I’m clever or good enough for that class of food, but I bet I could run a great sandwich shop, because I love sandwiches, and the state of the British sandwich industry often disappoints me, especially compared to the glorious sandwiches I had in Philly (a city renowned for it’s ability to put meat between bread).

So, a tee which combines two popular things = good.

Hit Me Baby One More Time by Loyal Army

by Andy on November 19, 2009


There are three angles that I could approach writing about this tee from:

1. Is it really appropriate to use a child model with a t-shirt that has the words “hit me…” on it?

2. I must press the snooze button at least twice every day before ‘accidentally’ turning off my alarm and falling asleep for another hour.

3. The first concert I ever went to was Britney Spears

I can probably guess which one you’d rather hear about… so I’m just going to stop talking now (what? We need a little mystery in the blogger/anonymous reader relationship!)
