Post image for The Yetee: Today’s Tee For Your Torso – Hands on T-shirt Review!

Two tees for me! Sorry for being especially excited, but I received some great tees from The Yetee, and I know you wouldn’t blame me for being even more cheerful than usual after you see the tees I get to wear. For this review, Andy went ahead and ordered from The Yetee’s grab-bag, (grab-bag meaning random tees) for me to review. The guys over at The Yetee are mind-readers, or maybe I am just really lucky, because I got two t-shirts that I have always wanted from them, but missed when they were printed a little while ago.

Let me back up a bit, are you familiar with The Yetee? Well you really should become acquainted soon if you aren’t. They are a tee-a-day site which basically says it all; they showcase a new tee daily and once that time is over (and in The Yetee’s case, it’s 24 hours most cycles, though sometimes 48 hours depending on the shirt), then after the timer runs out, the tee is gone forever. The Yetee has come a long way since they first launched, which I can’t believe was only a little over a year ago, but their success doesn’t come as much of a surprise since it’s run and owned by two dedicated artists, Glen O’Neill and Mike Mancuso, which needless to say, both have a great passion for tees. It’s also safe to say that The Yetee is a generous crew as they have been involved and hosted various fundraisers for charities throughout their time as a business, and we all can’t help but admire and applaud that.

My tees were nicely packed in a normal mailer, everything printed clearly, and even the cute Yetee mascot placed sweetly on the shipping label. I would love to see a custom printed mailer with their mascot on it somewhere, that would be an excellent touch. Inside, tucked in with my tees, were several stickers, and cute ones at that! The illustrations are based on The Yetee’s mascot – the pretty Yetee lady by Megan Lara and the cool, growling Yetee face by WinterArtwork, both being designers that are dominating the t-shirt world.

Speaking of Megan Lara, this one titled Do What You Dream was designed by her and is inspired by one of my most loved childhood films, The NeverEnding Story. As you can see, it’s completely filled with characters from the film and the art is just gorgeous, simple as that. I am especially drawn to the composition, as well as the astounding glow of Falcor above the Empress – this t-shirt is a dream to those who know and love this story.

This shirt is printed on a women’s small Gildan Softstyle, which I mentioned in my previous review, tends to be a little short for me (and, sadly, a little too tight, ugh.) I really need to remember to order a medium when it comes to Gildan! I am not criticizing this blank, rather I actually really like the softness of the Softstyle as it’s name gives away, but I like tees to fit a little loose rather than being really form-fitting.

The next tee is a good one on many levels. 1.) It’s The Yetee’s 100th design to be printed, which makes it special to me. 2.) It also features the one and only, Yetee, the mascot and logo of this company. AND 3.) Yetee is repeated on this tee and in so many different pop-culturey ways, I can’t pick a favorite! Actually, I lied, I love the Chewbacca Yetee the best…

Unlike the other tee, this one is printed on a women’s small Tultex Fine Jersey blank. It fits nicely as well, but seems to feel a little thicker than the Gildan Softstyle, as well as a little larger and longer, so I like the fit of this one a little more. I also like how the sleeves are longer on the Tultex – I prefer them to the normal capped sleeves that most girly fitted tees have. The Yetee also prints using heathered tees on occasion, which are of a poly blend – so it seems to me that they print on several types depending on the design and availability.

As for print, both of the tees are spot on. The Do What You Dream feels especially smooth and soft, and when you look at it up close it’s incredibly clean, obviously screen printed and all proudly printed at Threadbird! The only thing that I miss when examining everything, is the possibility of a custom printed tag or sewn on tag – either one would have really grabbed my attention. Even The Yetee logo printed subtly somewhere would be a great addition to the tee as a whole.

Thank you Glen and Mike over at The Yetee for sending me tees to be reviewed, though you had no idea I was going to, but don’t fret, you won me over with your quality and branding, that’s for sure! And as always, thanks to everyone for reading!

Post image for Another Fine Tee: Tee Time Once Every 72 Hours – Hands On T-shirt Review!

Hello all you HYA readers, it’s me, Leah! Remember or have you forgotten about me? I know it’s been awhile since I posted last, but I am back and hoping I can make up for lost time. So, I did a blog a little while ago about Another Fine Tee and as a thank-you, they were kind enough to send me a t-shirt (their very first print to be exact), so of course I jumped at the chance to review it! Another Fine Tee is one of those “tee-a-day” sites that we all love so much and they are indeed a very new company opening  just this Summer. They have already shown to be very promising displaying a range of pop-culture tees, as well as some pop-culture with more of an artsy quality about them. Another Fine Tee does not necessarily offer a “tee-a-day”, but close enough, as they offer one original, limited edition t-shirt design once every 72 hours! Also, as we know with all sites like this, once the time is up, you can no longer purchase it on their site.

Like I mentioned earlier, I received Another Fine Tee’s very first print on their site, Big Blue Skies designed by the great J3concepts who makes some incredible tees and this one is no different. There are a couple reasons why I really admire this design – one obvious reason being that I am a big fan of the show Breaking Bad that this shirt is inspired by. The other less obvious reason that I like this one, is not only is it a pop-culture tee, but it also incorporates artsy-elements in the style of the lines and in the overall mood of the design. One last thing, though I am pretty sure not that many people would agree with me, but the fact that J3 decided to leave out text makes it even more of a success in my eyes.

Another Fine Tee prints their designs on 100% cotton, and also on 50/50 blend – it all depends on the design and the day. The tee that I was given is a 100% cotton blank (and actually, I am not sure what brand the blank is, but it is comparable to the Gildan Softstyle), but I must say it’s a bit shorter in length than I am used to. The overall fit is a bit tight in places, but it feels comfortable. I think their tees run a bit small and I would have been better to have chosen a women’s medium instead of small – just keep that in mind when you purchase in the future.

As for the print, I can tell it’s screen-printed by it’s soft ink that seems to have blended in very nicely with the fabric of the tee and even after a few washes (and laying flat to dry), it’s still maintaining it’s quality. The size of the print could have been a little bigger to utilize the t-shirt canvas, in my opinion, but it’s not a deal breaker at all – I just prefer my prints larger. I do appreciate the custom printed tag most of all from Another Fine Tee; their logo is cute, fun, and professional and if you know me, then you know I gravitate to these surprising little details!

Thanks again to Another Fine Tee for giving me the opportunity to review their brand and their tee and of course, thanks to everyone out there for reading!
