Damn, EIO Clothing are closing down

by Andy on December 8, 2010

EIO Clothing

I’m not going to write a big eulogy for EIO Clothing, but they sent me some really cool t-shirts, they were good advertisers, they were friendly to me that time I visited Margin, and I liked them. I’m sad to see them go, but with so many brands in the UK offering good quality tees for £15 it must be hard for them to find people willing to pay their premium prices, even though I think the £25 price tag was largely justified.

At least they’re going out with a bang in the form of a massive sale with tees as low as £10, so if you’ve ever been to their store and wanted to get something but never pulled the trigger, this is you last chance. So long, EIO.


‘New’ t-shirts at EIO Clothing

by Andy on August 6, 2010

eio clothing

I told you about EIO’s sale on their summer line last week, and this week we’ve gone into a time machine, because they’re releasing a line of ‘classic’ and ‘favourite’ shirts from seasons past. Nothing at all wrong with that because I liked the vast majority of these designs back then and I still like them now. Peep the rest in the gallery.

50% of Summer Tees at EIO Clothing

by Andy on July 29, 2010

EIO Clothing sale

As I sit here I am wearing a t-shirt made by EIO Clothing, and I think it’s a tri-blend so it’s pretty lightweight, which in my eyes makes it a summer tee, and a mighty fine one it is too. I’ve been banging on for years about how good their tees are, but they really are good, and at half-price even the Americans in the audience might be tempted to splash the cash on one or two. No need for a coupon code, discount is already applied.


EIO Clothing sale

EIO Clothing are a t-shirt company who I can understand people looking at and going “that’s a bit pricey”, but as I have a few of their shirts (including this one worn by superstar DJ Calvin Harris), I know that you get what you pay for with them, and what you get is a really high quality tee that will last and last. At just under £10 for a tee that makes them look like an unbelievable bargain, I can’t remember them having a sale that went this low before, so may I suggest that you get on it?


the quiet life sale

Sale on at The Quiet Life: It’s a clearout to make room for their Spring Line, “sale includes: tshirts / hoodies / sweaters / hats / bags & more.”

10% off everything at Regan Smith Clarke from now until 12pm (Eastern) on April 19th. Over the weekend Regan will be doing other offers on Twitter which could give you up to 50% off his YASLY designed tees.

Dadawan, who appear to have dropped that whole Nukod thing, are 6 years old, and celebrating by giving you 20% off anything on their site with the coupon code DADA20. As if 20% off wasn’t good enough, there’s also free shipping all over the world.

Free posting at Rakes & Strays and EIO Clothing until April 21st. Offer open to UK orders only, sorry international peeps.

I’ve never heard of Sutsu before, but their sale has 40% off so that can’t be a bad thing. It is an Easter sale and I personally am almost out of chocolate eggs so who know how long this will last. [via TeeHunter]

If you want horror, Havok‘s got horror. They’ve also got a 70% off couple code, TAX, making their shirts $6, which is just ridiculous.

A guy I know has made a forum for tee fans that went literally went live about 20 minutes ago. As such, Tee Banter has very little content, threads or members, pop over, register and says something so that Simeon doesn’t feel lonely.

I know I already mentioned it, but Randr‘s Spring Sale is still going on, use the coupon code cleaners for an additional 10% off.

And lastly for this ridiculous roundup, get 10% off your order at Vicious History (who I’ve really been meaning to mention) with the coupon code


eio clothing

This latest release from the EIO team feels like a natural progression of their earlier lines, there’s no point breaking from a style that they like and their fans like. That said they have just launched a new shirt for their designs to be printed on, their previous shirts haven’t been slouches in the quality department, and they claim this to be better, so presumably it’ll be as soft as a feather floating past you on a warm summer’s day.


50% off at EIO Clothing, c’est bon, non?

by Andy on January 8, 2010

British prices – 50% = Opportunity for Americans to buy great tees from one of Britain’s best brands.



This is likely to be the last deals post of the year because I’m taking Mrs. HYA (we aren’t actually married, but saying ‘my girlfriend’ doesn’t sound quite as fun) to London for the weekend, and tomorrow is looking like it’s going to be a busy one in terms of non-fun non-tee related activity, and then there’s not much point posting next week because of Christmas jollity and friends coming back to the area for the festive season, though if something big comes up then I’ll try and let you know.

So, 20% off at PalmerCash today and tomorrow with the coupon code yeah.


It’s sale time at krudmart, with a nigh-on-ridiculous 70% off the older stock, and a rather more sensible though still greatly appreciated 20% off new arrivals (providing you spend more than $75).


The Threadless festive fun continues with $10 tees for the rest of the week (and if you want them to get even cheaper remember that me and Adam from Tee Directory are selling Threadless Gift Certificates on the cheap, also, and this is seriously the first time I’ve realised this, gift certificates could make good gifts for Christmas!).


I don’t mention Junky Tees very often but they do have some wearable tees that you’d probably enjoy paying 25% less for with the coupon code XMAS.


Not holiday related but money off is money off, Dressed By Danni (the halterneck hoodie People) launched a new website recently and if you’re making your first order you can receive a 10% discount with the coupon code FIRST10.


30% off sitewide at Karmaloop with the coupon code HAL30, or the code ZUUL30. Is there really any reason why Karmaloop have so many coupons, and not just at this time of year, it feels like they drop a new one every day.


Kind of an odd offer from DBH, instead of going site-wide they’re putting 3 tees a day on sale, but they’re going lower than usual and those three tees can be picked up for $10 a piece. This deal will be running until Christmas Day, so keep checking back to see if any of your favourite designs come up on sale.

Pyknic Clothing - Come in and smell the shirts._1260998380297

Pyknic have got a 20% off sale going on until tomorrow, eat up!


Paper Root Clothing:

We’re running our final big sale of the year with some real craziness. 40% everything for the next three days, and that includes our newest sweatshirts we just released.


I really wish I didn’t have to post this, but unfortunately Squishi’s tees are all on sale for £9.99 each. You’re probably thinking that Squishi’s tees being on a sale would be a good thing, but you’d be wrong, as they’re on sale because Squishi are going to be closing down when all the stock is gone. That sucks, because I was glad there was someone like Squishi around in Britain, but at least they’re closing because the print side of the business is going well, which will hopefully mean that Brit companies have an alternative to outsourcing to America to get their shirts printed.


It won’t sound like a sale to our American chums but in British terms this is a sale. Strange Ways have knocked their tees (all three shown above) down to £15, with £1 shipping in the UK, £2 worldwide, try beating that on the high street!

Vig Tees - Funny T-Shirts - Cool Vintage T-Shirts Unique Graphic T-Shirts_1260999669216

As you can see from that image, free shipping ANYWHERE ON EARTH when you buy 2 or more tees from Vig Tees. Sounds good, but the martians are gonna be pissed.


The e-mail from Bean Dip had the subject “Free Shipping // New Tees”, so I presume they’re offering free shipping. I know, it’s like I’m Sherlock Holmes or something.


This coupon from No Star will be expiring tomorrow, so hop to it.


Get 10% off at wiftees with the coupon code hideyourarms.


My favourite food blog, Serious Eats, have released a list of tees for foodies. Well, I wouldn’t call it a list because it’s only got 11 items on it, to me it’s not really a list unless you question the will to live whilst putting it together and then realising it probably wasn’t worth it since it wasn’t about Star Wars (me? bitter?).


PopJunkie and their weird lapdancing clip-art are going to keep their sale going until the end of the year, so no need to rush then!


EIO and Rakes & Strays are going to be turning their regular postage into Special Delivery in the UK from now until December 23rd so that y’all will be getting your tees to your loved ones in time for Chrimbo.


Monstar (who seem to mostly be a belt company now) have got all their tees onsale for $10 at th moment with a flat rate of $4 shipping.


Digital t-shirt by EIO Clothing

Digital - Mens - Excess Is Ok_1258387435861

I keep trying to find a pattern in this tee, but I think it’s just a random 8-bit style print… and a cool one at that. EIO have a load of new tees available, so make sure you click on through to check them out if you’re a fan of their style.

It has been a little while since the last review on HYA, and this tee from Rakes & Strays is certainly worthy of bringing back this once-regular feature, especially as I think this might be the first ever tee I’ve received that has been panel printed. If you’re unfamiliar with Rakes & Strays, they’re a new brand from EIO Clothing, so the quality that you expected from EIO, you should expect from Rakes & Strays. You can essentially view them as the same company, they share a website, but I can understand why the two lines have been split as they two collections hold very different styles of tee, even if this particular shirt has the EIO logo on it, and some design elements on it from other EIO tees I’ve been sent in the past. So, in summary, they’re different, but the same, but they’re both good so there’s no point worrying about it.


Usually when people think of tattoo designs they’ll think of Ed Hardy, which isn’t necessarily a good thing (if you want tattoo style, I’d point you in the direction of Sailor Jerry, and not just because they make good rum), but tattoos are a ripe area for creating great t-shirt designs, and whilst I’m no expert on tattoos, I think that this tee works well. As I mentioned earlier this tee has some elements on it from tees I have been sent from EIO Clothing in the past. As a concept I presumed that wouldn’t like it, but I think that it makes a lot of sense for this design because tattoos are meant to be something meaningful, and this tee represents how EIO (and now R&S) are progressing as a company, but they’re still sticking true to the qualities about them that I liked so much in the past. Perhaps I’m over-analysing the design, maybe I should have just said “hey, that look cool, and there’s guns on it” and moved on.


In terms of quality, whether you call it EIO or Rakes & Strays this is a damn good shirt, as the closeups in the gallery will attest. The material is quite thin, but it is very soft. I’m not entirely sure what kind of printing method has been used, but I would be tempted to say that it was discharge because you cannot feel the print at all, which is obviously a good thing. If my previous experience with EIO tees is anything t ogo by, you can expect this tee to wear well, by which I mean it will survive being washed an worn pretty frequently, though I imagine that if it were to fade eventually then that would be less of a big deal than with a normal print because tattoo designs usually gain something with a bit of vintage-style fade on them. The hems of the tee d have what they call a ‘raw edge’ to them, which basically means that they have been cut to split the him and distress it a little bit; I’m not a huge fan of this process because I don’t really see what it adds to the t-shirt as it is a subtle change, but as it is a subtle change it doesn’t detract from what is an excellent t-shirt.

Costiness=£29.95 Available from Rakes & Strays (also in black, and with a fitted cut for the ladies)

BAM by Tom Lovell for EIO Clothing

by Andy on September 18, 2009

Eio Clothing - Mens & Womens - Fashion & Clothing - Excess Is Ok_1253188347719

I don’t know who Tom Lovell is, but I now know that he can design a damn good looking t-shirt. It kind of reminds me of the Concrete Hermit Logo Pattern tee, and that is in no way a bad thing.

Costiness=£24.95 Available from EIO Clothing


Dandelions by Rakes & Strays

Rakes & Strays™ - Dandelions - Mens - Rakes and Strays represents a sympathy with the past; of tailored garments, distressed materials and hand-drawn and painted works of art_1252338505018

I think I might have fallen a little bit in love with Rakes & Strays, the new sister brand to EIO Clothing. They’ve got some of the most beautiful photo tees I’ve ever seen ever, ever, and because I know the EIO crew are behind it, I know the quality is going to be up there with the best of them. If Dandelions aren’t really your thing but you’re still after a photo tee, may I recommend Heavens Below, are pretty much anything else in their shop. Some designs are also available with a V-neck for those of you with bodies chiseled from granite, and all the designs are available in sizes for the ladies.

Costiness=£29.95 Available from Rakes & Strays (damn, I’ve just noticed it’s sold out in all but size small, but make sure you click through and check out some other designs)

EIOs latest Men’s Range is Available Now

by Andy on April 27, 2009


It’s fair to say that I’d be a fan of EIO Clothing whether they occupied advertising space here or not, and this latest range is one of the reasons why. They make great, tees, simple as that… they are a tad on the skinny side though.


S/S09 from EIO is A-OK

by Andy on February 27, 2009


That title formula will never get old!

I don’t think that there are any new hoodies as far as I can remember, but there are some excellent new tees for both the guys and the girls for you to peruse. It’s a really impressive release of tees, not a huge departure from past collections, but definitely an evolution of their style.

EIO Clothing

*Yes, EIO are an advertiser on HYA, but that doesn’t effect what I think of their clothes, I’m very proud to have such a high quality company sitting in the sidebar, and incidentally, their new ad looks great (Your Eyes Lie have a nice new ad too).


Up to 70% off at EIO Clothing (but hurry)

by Andy on January 14, 2009


EIO sent over their latest ad for me to put up on the site, and I figured that to make sure everyone (such as the people that read HYA through a feed reader) saw this promo, I’d post it on the site rather than just putting up the ad.

This isn’t one of those crappy sale where you’re inevitably disappointed at the savings, you actually can find items with 70% off them. I got an e-mail from a UK design shop earlier today with claimed savings of 75% off, but even in their own e-mail, they were promoting a £14 mug which had been reduced to £13… lame!

The sale is only on for a few more days, so maybe you should open your wallet whilst the site is loading to ensure you save a couple of seconds during the checkout.

Up to 50% off at Eio Clothing

by Andy on December 19, 2008

With sales like this, and the pound taking a nose-dive against the dollar, I guess that Americans might be able to start enjoying some of the clothes that are being made on this side of the pond, and if you’re going to enjoy any, you might as well pick a great brand like EIO Clothing. I know that sounds like an infomercial, but I’m pretty proud to have them as an advertiser here on Hide Your Arms, they make great clothes and they’re a great bunch of people too.


Holiday discounts over at EIO Clothing

by Andy on December 6, 2008

I realise tha its a little bit odd that in my last post I discussed not writing about the advertisers too often only to post about an advertiser again just a few hours later, but if Alistair Darling knocking 2.1% off all prices in the UK is big news, then I think I’m pretty justified in letting you know that there is currently 15% off hoodies at EIO Clothing and 7.5% off tees. No need for a coupon code, the discounts are already applied.


In addition to the already fine service and quality that the EIO crew provide on a regular basis (don’t forget that you can get 15% off by using HYAs exclusive coupon code that can be found on their ad on the lower right of this page), during this festive season they’re going to be gift wrapping each and every order, so that all you have to do is slip it under the Christmas tree. Or, if you’re a selfish, you could just enjoy the fun of opening a present before December 25th.

As always, prices include worldwide shipping. Please note that the new hoodies are only available in women’s sizes. Screengrabs of the rest of the new designs can be seen in the gallery.

This collection code named ‘Medieval Knievel’ is a slogan that represents several different concepts; History, adventure, danger and romance.

We’ve used this slogan to create a range that illustrates and materialises fantasy stories that take in imagery from the past to the present. Using Evil Knieval in the title represents something to us about living for the day, being young, being adventures, daring and using your imagination in the face of the void.

Incorporating the past and ‘Medieval’ has allowed us to create a fantastical world in which to create a range using various motifs such as Chainmail, Mermaids, Sirens, Octopus’, Swallows, Tattoos and Women.

Don’t forget that you can get 15% off your order using the coupon code hya15offeio.
