Daily T-shirts & News for January 10th

by Andy on January 10, 2012

doctor who sonic screwdriver t-shirt

Sonic Screwdriver shirt from TeeFury today, is Doctor Who really that big in the US that they can put out so many DW designs?


I think I’d prefer this blood-sucking t-shirt from Shirt.Woot without the ‘Vampires!’ text at the top.


RIPT have a ‘Mega Iron Man’ 8-bit tee up for sale today.


I’m sorry but my powers have eluded me once again, can anyone take a stab at explaining this Shirt Punch tee to me?


Nowhere Bad have a delightful 8-bit Star Wars shirt today.


TeeRaiders are fans of Bioshock.


Tshirt Contest have added a robot design to their growing catalogue.


Very interesting shirt from DBH today, I like the flecks of paint working their way up the shirt.


24tee continue to push their meme tees.


The pic looks a bit messed up, but that is an awfully cute drug-referencing t-shirt at Loviu today.


My favourite Tilteed design makes a return.



Camiseteria have a couple of new tees.


The Shirt List have a massive (and fascinating) interview with Alex Solis, creator of many top Threadless designs, amongst other things.


I’ve added four new products to Rigu, including the wrist straps you can see above, and remember that there is free shipping on all UK orders, and cheap shipping for EU & International packages.




604Republic have turned 3 of their most popular designs into posters.

Daily Tee & News Roundup for November 23rd

by Andy on November 23, 2011

star trek t-shirt

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s amazing that there aren’t more Star Trek t-shirts around. $10 today at TeeFury.


I like the name of this shirt, ‘Vinyl Frontier,’ almost as much as I like the design. $10 today at Tilteed.


Very nice Doctor Who t-shirt from Nowhere Bad today.


I’m not sure if this shirt at Stupidhurts.us is a Deadmau5 reference or not, but I like it.


Not my favourite Shirt.Woot design ever but it definitely fits with their style.


I’m fairly sure there are a lot of people that would like this RIPT version of Battlestar Battleship to be a real thing.


Awesome shirt at The Yetee today, who would have thought that “Star Wars x crappy Christmas sweaters” would be such a good concept for a design?


And here I was thinking that all the “people whose names are also a state” had been done, well done 24tee.


TeeRaiders are dropping a Firefly design today.


Loviu really liked The Dark Knight, presumably.


Catch of the Day Tee provide us with our second Doctor Who shirt for Wednesday.


Shirt Punch seem to be the only company that have realised The Muppets are really popular at the moment.


Very pretty design from DBH today.


Let me remind you that Rigu is a thing I launched last week and it would be brilliant if you could check it out.


Glennz has released a desktop calendar for 2012 featuring some of his favourite designs.


80sTees satisfy my thirst for Seinfeld t-shirts with this George Costanza ‘Professional Hand Model’ tee. for $22.


Monsieur Steve is offering 20% off in his store today only with the coupon code onlytoday, though you do have to spend €70 to qualify for the saving.


PLNDR have up to 55% off goods from Mishka NYC.


A few months back on I Am The Trend Monique from Antisparkle featured “3 Affordable and Creative Branded Packaging Ideas” that I’m sure store owners will want to take a look at.

I didn’t mean for this to turn into a daily roundup for store owner resources, but I’ve been finding some good stuff recently, here’s “Five Copywriting Errors That Can Ruin A Company’s Website” from Smashing Magazine.

Mashable have 7 Tips to Make Your Blog Stickier. A lot of shirt brands have a blog that this info can apply to, but it’s important to note that a lot of the tips apply to non-blog content too.

Kissmetrics have a super guide to marketing using Twitter, and also a post with a guy claiming to have a 2% bounce rate which if you know your bounce rates you know is astoundingly low.


I Am The Trend’s Black Friday List is up and it has more than 80 brands on it, crazy! My initial list will be up in a few hours.

Daily News & Tee Roundup for November 21st

by Andy on November 21, 2011

warwick davis t-shirt

I’ve had a change of tack today and I’m putting Shirt Punch at the top of the roundup because today their designer is not by a normal t-shirt artist, it’s by sophisticated dwarf about town Warwick Davis of Star Wars (and currently ‘Life’s too Short’) fame. I know that his new show has gotten a lot of negative press for exploiting short people, but I don’t think he’d be in the show if he didn’t think it was right for him. Nice to see Philip Schofield in the sideart section!


I watched the first episode of The Walking Dead (season 2) at the weekend so I think this TeeFury shirt is pretty dang cool.


Qwertee, or at least someone, has sold this ‘Joy of Death’ shirt before, I’m sure of it.


Very sweet design by BootsBoots at Tilteed today, and whilst it isn’t new to the site, it is new to me.


Nowhere Bad are referencing Iocane Powder from the Princess Bride again.


Seems like this camera t-shirts from Stupidhurts.us provides yet another lovely opportunity to mention my new camera accessories site, Rigu.


Rare that you see Shakespeare quoted on a t-shirt, but Shirt.Woot have pulled it off.


It’s also rare to see RIPT re-using designs, but that is the case with this Tardis/Union Jack t-shirt.


The Yetee give some love to a pair of Ninja Turtles characters that don’t often get a look in when it comes to t-shirts.


I’ve never seen the Slap Bet episode of How I Met Your Mother, but it’s cool the way that they bring it in during later episodes, I like the way that HIMYM has a lot more callbacks than most shows. TeeMinus24.


Random shirts on sale at OtherTees for the next 4 days.


I don’t really understand what this Crane Jackson thing is all about at 24tee today. I’ve found a strange Facebook page that might be a real theatre, and that Crane Jackson was a real person, but I still don’t quite get it. The mystery is quite fun though.


Today at TeeRaiders they’re celebrating a show called Once Upon a Time that’s only been on the air for a month on ABC in the US, I can’t decide if that’s brilliant or terrible.


GraphicLab have a shirt this week that combines Nintendo’s famous Power Glove with Thanos from the Marvel universe.


Really cool design from Loviu today.


2nd design has been made available from Tshirt Contest, this one is all about how delicious meat is.


Not really my kind of shirt at DBH today.


Someone on Instructables has made a fun looking shirt with LEDs in it.



Wrongwroks will be releasing this hoodie today, I really like the contrast detail on the zip and hood.


Springleap have teamed up with Marmite for a design competition.


PLNDR have more ridiculous prices in their bargain bin today.


Get $25 off with the coupon code 25X8TN at 80s Purple when you spend $80 or more (and there’s free shipping if you spend $99 or more).


Sturban Clothing have started selling Quilted Jackets by SeventySeven.


This guy called Jack got in touch to let me know about his site, and whilst the tees aren’t really my style, I thought you guys might like his stuff, and he seems very likeable in spite of the odd choice of creating a website that is 300 pixels wide.


Chris Kawagiwa, who recently had a few designs printed over at Might Fine, sent me an e-mail that pointed me towards a concept & process video for one of his steampink Star Wars designs. It’s really cool to watch it come together from pen & paper to the finished tee.




RadCakes have released three new shirts that I don’t particularly care for, perhaps you do.

dreamer camera strap

I’ve been talking about this new project quite openly on Twitter and Facebook over the past month or so, but things never really feel official until I’ve talked about them here on the main blog. Hide Your Arms is my passion, and it’s practically my job too, but when I say practically a job I mean that it doesn’t generate enough income to maintain my expensive lifestyle of eating one takeaway a week and swimming in cold lakes. Fortunately I like more than just t-shirts, so I thought it was time to do something else, and that’s where Rigu comes in.

Have you ever noticed that no matter what your camera looks like, the things that come with it tend to be grey or black or generally boring? I have, I have a white DSLR, clearly it’s a cry for attention, but looking at it made me wonder why there weren’t people out there selling colourful and interesting accessories for cameras. Why do we all accept that there are millions of t-shirts out there to suit your style but we have to stick with what Canon or Nikon put in the box as an afterthought?


So instead of thinking about it I did something about it, and I’ve opened a shop selling cool and colourful camera straps and a few other accessories. The selection isn’t massive at the moment but will be steadily growing over the next few months. In time I hope that Rigu will be able to offer straps and camera bags that have been designed in collaboration with artists. That’s something that’s never been done before (as far a I know), and I am looking into making it happen, it sure is exciting to be a pioneer.

I don’t want to go on about it too much but if you have questions then you know how to get in touch with me (contact form, Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, comments on this post). I of course would love to receive any and all comments about this new venture of mine, I want/need it to be big, and to do that I will be needing help and support from others. Take a look around and let me know what you think. Please note that in spite of opening this shop HYA should not be effected too much, I still intend to post just as much as usual, I believe that I can balance the two.

Check out the main shop at Rigu.
Find it on Twitter.
Like it on Facebook.
Rigu is also sharing cool photos and news on Tumblr.

“Flash Camera! t-shirt by Dr. UEEE

by Andy on November 10, 2011

polaroid camera t-shirt

I like the design on this shirt by Spanish company Dr. UEEE, but I feel that they’ve tarnished the experience somewhat with the edition of that large registered symbol (I wonder whether their designs are actually registered trademarks) and also putting their name and a tagline underneath it. It cheapens the tee for me, if people like your shirt they will ask where you got it from, the name doesn’t need to be written on for all to see. It’s disappointing because I really do like the design (and the rest of their designs too), but it’s a total turn off for me.

Costiness=19€ Buy it at Dr. UEEE

Daily Tee Roundup 09/09/11: Be quick y’all!

by Andy on September 9, 2011

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along t-shirt

Sorry I missed the daily tee roundup yesterday, I was at the Westmorland County Show (which is funny because Westmorland hasn’t been a county since before I was born), hopefully we didn’t miss any amazing shirts.

TeeFury are giving us a shirt based on Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along today, I haven’t seen it so I have no idea what the shirt is about, but the design is pretty nice. $10 today only.


Today RIPT are selling a shirt called ‘Untitled Madness’ which sounds like the name an art student would give their piece when they can’t think of a good name for it. I’m not a fan of this shirt, it feels a bit generic in the way that it covers all the bases in terms of design elements; skull, birds, tree roots, random circles. There’s nothing wrong with liking all that stuff of course, but it’s not for me.


‘Cat-At loves you’ is one of the better shirts that Nowhere Bad have offered recently, really cute style. $12 for the shirt this weekend.


‘Princess Daiana’ is a very cool shirt from Loviu today, and I really like the way that it the colour palette is CMYK, that’s a nice touch. €12 for the rest of today then €22 in the catalogue.


‘Fish Fingers & Custard’ is on sale at Qwertee for the next couple of days. I presume that this is a Doctor Who reference to Amy Pond?


The Yetee have been impressing me with their releases, I don’t know much about them but they do seem to have cool designs, and that’s all I’m interested in really. This Star Fox shirt is available for $11 for the next 4 days.


‘Cell Division’, ha, you crack me up sometimes Shirt.Woot.


‘Pug and Play’ has a cool style to it, and I think that this Tilteed shirt might mark the first time I’ve featured designers from Hungary, so that’s a new thing. Shirt $12 for the next few hours, then it’s gone.


There’s a surprisingly large amount of Big Lebowski shirts out there really, I know it’s a cult film, but it gets a lot more t-shirt attention than I expected. You can pick up this shirt at TeeMinus24 for $13 today.

spy camera t-shirt

I suppose that with people having the ability to make cameras the size of a pin head it should surprise me that it’s possible to hide a camera in a t-shirt, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they should do it. I would like to think there are some legit uses for this t-shirt from ThinkGeek, perhaps for making a timelapse of a run, or taking photos you shouldn’t in a museum (which I think is okay, but many museums would not), but let’s be honest, we all know what people are thinking when they order a spy camera t-shirt… BOOBS!

Costiness=$39.99 Buy it at ThinkGeek

Line drawing FTW!

Costiness=$30 Buy it at FluffyCo (whose website is decidedly unfluffy)

Two great new tees from Milk & Eggs Co.

by Andy on January 4, 2010


You’re probably looking at that title and thinking “Andy, was one of your New Year’s Resolutions to become a shill for tee companies?” Well concerned reader, no, these tees are great (the camera one especially), which just makes it really easy for me to sound like a shill for one of my advertisers, Milk & Eggs Co. You can also get 20% off anything in store with the coupon code YAY2010, which is fine, but clearly the 25% off you’d get with the code HIDEYOURARMS is rather more attractive. That’s right, 5% more, and you thought that Christmas was over!

Funny, funny stuff. Well drawn too.

Costiness=$17 Buy it at Loiter Ink

Y’know, despite being a blog about arm-hiding, I’d only ever received one bit of long-sleeved clothing from a company, and I’d never received a hoodie, the item of clothing that this blog built its niche upon (before I sold out and started reviewing tees). That changed on Tuesday when I got a hoodie in the mail from the much-loved people at Oddica.

I was the recipient of the Ghost Cameras hoodie, which was great since I said it was my favourite. I just love the design by Gary Gao, the detailed sketch-work on the cameras contrast really well with the rounded cartoon style of the ghosts/souls, and the lack of colour is most likely a reference to the early sepia-toned days of photography (and one of the least used auto-settings on digital cameras).

The hoodie is printed on an American Apparel pullover hoodie, the first AA hoodie I’ve received/bought, and I really like it. Warm, soft and comfortable, yet still not that heavy. So now when I see a hoodie printed on AA I’ll be able to endorse it without worrying about the quality of the product.

Costiness=$38 (Shipping is the same as for tees even though hoodies obviously weigh more) URL

Oddica have also added a couple of new sleeved styles to two popular designs. The ‘Snailbot’ is now available as a ‘waffle thermal‘ and the ‘Tape Bird’ is now available as a zip-up hoodie.

Lots of pictures (including the return of pictures taken against the bathroom mirror!) after the jump.
