Mr Four Fingers Has Some New Tees

by Mr Four Fingers on December 9, 2013

Over at Mr Four Fingers we have had our hands on a new set of studio photographs of our current t-shirts as well as some new ones for a good few months and I figured it’s about time I shared with you guys.

Instead of us photographing the t-shirts ourselves in alleys out in the cold where the nearby lure of beer and soft-glow pub warmth often proved too strong; we decided to enlist the help of The Blackout Studio and some friends to get some proper photos for a change. We thankfully had some camera friendly mates to help out with modeling (none existent budget) though we did somehow pack the incorrect size for the ladies tee hence why they may seem a little toight.

Our current range is a mixture of screen print and direct to garment printed designs and all are printed on Continental Clothing t-shirts. The ladies tees are slim fit and the men’s are regular fit (more fitted than regular, if you know what I mean). Ladies tees are £18 a pop while men’s come in at £20 though the logo tee is £18. I once bumped into a crazy drunk Italian who stared so hard at the lines of my MFF logo tee that he said it was like “looking into the future”.

Like with all emerging brands we are learning as we go and having reviewed a good many tees for various brands through Hide Your Arms I have garnered a few tips along the way. Along with these tees we also sell a variety of fancy prints and originals from ink works to paintings (often featured in Curious Duke Gallery). So drop by and check them out at our online store and if you fancy it you can use this promo code: HYAROCKS20 for a walloping 20% discount on final order (ends 01/01/2014).

Get in.

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

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.

Digisin Special Edition Packaging

by Mr Four Fingers on October 30, 2012

Digisin

We featured Digisin in a review awhile ago and now I have the pleasure of showing how they are successfully growing into a pretty wicked brand. We at Mr Four Fingers recently teamed up with Digisin by having some of our illustrations added to his online store. There will be another post showing the collection soon.

Digisin

The packing you see here is a part of their ‘special edition’ selection and I can’t help but feel that this was also chosen in response to some recent postage issues Digisin had. By that I mean the customers box looked like it was delivered by Ace Ventura (I nicked that from a FB comment). So as you can see there is a polite sicker notice informing the person delivering that packaging to treat with respect. I love this ‘paint tin’ packaging and is officially the coolest I have received from any brand.

Digisin

When we first reviewed Digisin they were using Softstyle Gildans and have sinced moved up to the Gildan premium t-shirts, which is pretty decent and a far better fit than the standard Gildan. It also happens to be a great surface for Direct to Garment printing (which is what they do). As you can see we we have two images printed onto darker fabrics, so what I can tell you is that when you initially get the t-shirt the design will feel a little stiff, like plastisol ink but after a wash it loosens up nicely.

Digisin has also upped their game by getting nice hem tags and inside collar tags and the pack also includes a neat little swing tag sticker and old school movie cards that you can collect. Since I first found Digisin I have seen a marked increase in product development, new artists to his collective and an overall improvement.

The future is bright.
