fisheye lens t-shirt

When I saw that laFraise had released the lovely shirt above with it’s “fisheye lens” I knew I was going to be able shoehorn in a mention of Rigu, my little camera accessories shop, but I am really impressed with this weeks release from the Strawberry, both very nice designs.

busted tees

Pretty solid week from BustedTees, the Talkboy takes me back, the Greendale design is based on one of my favourite TV shows, the Slugworth shirt is based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the photography shirt is just delightful (and let’s me cram a mention of Rigu into this post).

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 October 17th

by Andy on October 17, 2011

labyrinth t-shirt

Monday’s are always a bit epic when it comes to the daily roundup, and it’s got a little bit more epic this week with the launch of a new daily site called Tee Raiders.

Thinking about it, I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen Labyrinth, huh. $10 today at TeeFury.

Big day for artist khallion, seeing as they’re on both Teefury and Qwertee today. It’s totally okay to find Jessica Rabbit hot, right?

‘Sunset on a Concrete Forest’ is today’s $10 Tilteed shirt, nice artwork.

I really like this shirt from, great use of negative space.

Shirt.Woot seem to be getting a bit moody.

Do I need to be a fan of the Powerpuff Girls to like this RIPT shirt?

I have no idea what this shirt at The Yetee is referencing, but I like it.

TeeMinus24 are filling that growing niche of people that like comics and sports.

Uneetee have put their hummingbird tee on insaneetee savings, $14.99 down from $24.99.

I’m sure I’ve seen this Doctor Who t-shirt somewhere before, possibly RedBubble, but it’s good to see it here on OtherTees too.

Loviu have sold this shirt before too, but it is welcome at €12 instead of their usual catalogue price.

24tee bring us something I don’t post often, a pinball design!

GraphicLab have got another cool shirt this week, it’s a Ghostbusters x Star Wars design which I’m sure will go down well.

As promised, here’s the latest entrant into the daily shirt arena, TeeRaiders, and apparently their first shirt is something to do with Supernatural so I don’t get it, but I wish them luck as I do to all the new stores, especially in such a tough market. TeeRaiders are selling each shirt for 72 hours, which I think is a bit of a safer option than 24 hour sales, though please note this is the last day this shirt is available (they launched at the weekend).


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.


The Photojojo Camera Strap Tee

by Andy on November 18, 2010

camera strap t-shirt

It feels to me as if Photojojo has moved away from its original aims and become far more of a shop nowadays, but it’s a cool shop that sells cool camera things, so I’ll let it slide… it’d be nice if the print went back around the neck though.

Costiness=$20 Buy it at Photojojo


smile cctv camera purple t-shirt by glennz

In Britain we get told a lot that we’re the most surveilled nation on Earth because we’ve got a lot of CCTV cameras, but you know what? They have a lot less cameras in North Korea but you don’t see people scrambling to go there for the freedom. I’m sure most of those cameras are just in shops to put people off shoplifting anyway, and why should I really care about someone taking a video (that no one will ever watch) of me buying a packet of crisps?

I really hope that Cory Doctorow doesn’t read this blog (he tweeted about it once, so perhaps), because I’ll be in for a lecture about why it’s an invasion of my privacy, and I can see those concerns, but I do think people go a bit overboard about this stuff sometimes.

This is one of my favourite Glennz shirts for a while, the colourwat really works for me, and I like that he’s kept his trademark style whilst putting out a design that makes you rather more than his usual pop culture-based jokey designs.

Costiness=$19.95 Buy it at Glennz

Camera Crackup by ReThink Clothing

by Andy on May 21, 2010

camera t-shirt

Personally, I’d be happier to see this tee without the ReThink text on the upper left, but the level of branding could be much worse, and I know that brands needs to get their name out there, and yes, I’m a total hypocrite about these things.

Costiness=$19.99 Buy it at ReThink Clothing

Camera T-shirt by PLB

camera t-shirt

I don’t really understand what’s going on with the arrows and stuff on this shirt, but as I’ve said in the past, you don’t necessarily need to understand something to enjoy it.

international center of photography plastic camera t-shirt

I’ve been trying to clean up my office recently (too much stuff!) and I randomly found a plastic toy camera under a pile of cushions. I think it was a freebie from Ribena (yes, the blackcurrant squash people), and I haven’t seen it for years so I’m curious as to what I would have taken photos of back in the day and what time has done to the film…. though perhaps not curious enough to pay to have it developed. Anyway, sweet tee, and don’t let the no armed mannequin fool you, this tee does have short sleeves.

Oh, and you’d have thought that the International Center of Photography would be able to take a decent product shot, wouldn’t you?

Costiness=$25 Buy it at the ICP

I always really liked the idea of Polaroid cameras, something that I may have mentioned before, the concept of being able to hold something tangible in your hands straight after taking a photo is a bit more exciting than taking a picture and then immediately looking at an LCD screen. Still, given the option of having a digital camera and a Polaroid camera, I know I’d be picking megapixels over printed polaroids every time.

Costiness=€26 Buy it at Tshirt Store [Sweden] [Rumplo Link]

Considering that The Quiet Life is actually a camera club, they do a very good impression of a clothing label. I really, really, like the hoodie posted above, there’s quite a lot going on but it isn’t too crazy at the same time. There’s lots more good stuff going on in the gallery, too.

Oh, and from now until Christmas, if you spend more than $75 (before shipping) you’ll receive a free camera bag, and considering each hoodie is about $70 I’m sure you can manage that.
