have reversed the concept of their logo for these tees, which usually have the skull as the larger head and the little face on the hat. The cool thing about this is that it is interesting to hardcore fans of the brand since it does represent something different to them, but to casual people approaching the brand for the first time it’s still wearable. Tees are £25 each and the varsity jacket is £50.
It would appear that Death Before Dishonour have felt the need to cut their name down and are now going by the moniker of just DBD, which is certainly easier for me since I would always forget whether it was ‘Death BY/BEFORE Dishonour’. I like the design, as usual it has a surprisingly spiritual background, here’s what DBD have to say about it:
This piece is about Yama, “The Lord of Death” in Buddhism. This is what the DBD logo represents, basically the Buddhism Grim Reaper.
It’s drawn in a manga, graphic noir style and it is a close up of the eye the sees the approach of death. All beings fear Yama!!!
Available from the DBD store as a t-shirt or sweatshirt now.
Here is the new DBD logo and for the first time ever printed onto black with white print. It is on a heavyweight set in sleeve sweat and heavyweight tee.
There have been so many requests for the logo as a white print on black and now I’m happy with it I have finally gotten round to it.
Here’s the changes that I have made:
1. Widened the head, he looked too wimpy before and after a few months it drove me crazy.
2. I have drawn much better swords and included the Hamon (the wavey cutting edge) I felt this to be an important detail for the route I wanted to take the brand.
3. Removed the under title and replaced it with DBD
4. Put more detail and better shaping into the helmet mascot.
5. Reshaped the helmet

[Andy: I really liked the style of this submission, and it would be cool to see more people doing submissions like this where they critique and explain the design.]

Jesus, that title is so bad it actually depressed me, feel free to do better in the comments.
Death Before Dishonour, fresh off being given an English lesson by a blogger that’s constantly making mistakes, have released a new design that I can’t find anything wrong with!
The tee comes in at £25 whilst you’ll be dropping £42 for the sweatshirt version. Usually I’m not too into sweatshirts, but I think this design really works well with the garment.
