Found Item Clothing List 8 Judge Dredd tees

by Andy on October 4, 2012

Post image for Found Item Clothing List 8  Judge Dredd tees

Sure, there are lists out there which are much, much longer, but Found Item Clothing have found some good looking tees for their Judge Dredd list, conveniently released at a time when the remake (reboot? reimagining?) is out at the cinemas. Has anyone seen the film? it looked a lot better than I expected in the trailer but I still haven’t gotten around to seeing it.


Every T-shirt in “This is Spinal Tap”

by Andy on August 16, 2012

spinal tap t-shirts

I was watching Spinal Tap with friends a few months ago and couldn’t help but notice that there were an awful lot of t-shirts on show, and since I had so much fun with the Scott Pilgrim t-shirt list I thought I’d give this one a go. It’s hardly surprising considering that tees are the classic rock n’ roll wardrobe staple, but it’s still fun to see interesting tees being worn by characters in a movie, especially when I imagine that quite a lot of them were created specifically for the movie itself.

In spite of the popularity of the film then and now, there are surprisingly few companies out there which have taken the plunge and recreated shirts from the movie, with most seemingly happy to put “it goes to 11″ on a tee and leave it at that. It’s disappointing, but maybe if this post does well some enterprising freelance designers will put their efforts onto a print-on-demand site like Cafepress, Zazzle, or RedBubble so you can snap them up before they get DMCA takedown requests. If they make them, I’ll post them here, but for now we’ll have to make do with merely enjoying looking at the great t-shirts featured in Spinal Tap. Please note that I was taking screen grabs from the DVD version of the film since I don’t know anyone with the Blu-Ray version, but if this post gets enough attention I will happily order a copy of the Blu-Ray so that we can have some extra detail for the images. Also, I would never claim to be a Spinal Tap authority, I’ve seen the film a few times and really like it, but if I make any errors in this post just let me know and I’ll fix it right up.

70s movie alphabet t-shirt

Found Item Clothing have teamed up with British designer Stephen Wildish to create three new shirts featuring an A to Z of movies from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Really cool project that fits in nicely with what Found Item do, and I hope the shirts do well. Would be good to see these as posters too, I think that could be a popular item.

FIC have a nice interview with Stephen as well which is worth checking out, to both learn about Stephens influences an inspiration for this series, and also to get a hint for how excited FIC are about this release, since the interview was from all the way back in March. Travis is a contributor here at HYA as most of you will know, and I know he’s really proud of this release, so please do check it out at the very least.


The Hare Necessitees: 26 Rabbit T-Shirts

by Travis on April 1, 2012

Easter is drawing closer (Sunday, April 8th, yo) and to mark the moment, our friends at From Hop to Pop have compiled a list of 26 designs themed around rabbits (punningly entitled, The Hare Necessitees).

Some are cute (predictably), some are chic, but others are curious, macabre and a bit further afield. Included in the mix are designs sourced from Threadless, Snorg, Shirtoid, Etsy, and points beyond…

8-bit karate kid t-shirt

I’m about to reveal a shocking confession… I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Karate Kid. I know enough about it to get by, like some kind of pop culture osmosis, but I can’t remember sitting down and watching the film. Then again, it was quite a long time ago and I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday (wait, no, it was an omelette, and it was delicious).

The use of 8-bit on a Karate Kid design is a great choice from Found Item Clothing, and it’s a very good wearable t-shirt that doesn’t rely too much on nostalgia to make me like it.

valentines t-shirts

I’m such a romantic fella that I’m sure Mrs. HYA thinks that it’s Valentine’s Day every day (I let her go large at McDonalds wheneve she wants, chivalry is not dead my friends), but for many others that is not the case. I know this list is too late to save you if you’ve forgotten to get your lady/gentleman a present for today, but it’s still a really cool list from our friends over at Found Item Clothing.

9 Iconic Sweaters Drawn from Pop Culture

by Andy on September 4, 2011

inconic sweaters

Sure, you can’t buy these (at least not yet), but it’s still a really cool illustration showing some iconic sweaters from the worlds of cinema, TV and music. Weezer caught wind of this post by Found Item Clothing and mentioned it on their Facebook page, resulting in an avalanche of traffic for Travis. I’m sure this post on HYA won’t bring him similar internet fame, but hopefully you guys will enjoy checking out these lovely illustrations.


goose firebirds top gun t-shirt

I’ve watched Top Gun many, many times, and in my exhaustive research of the volley ball scene I have no recollection of this shirt, but I trust Found Item Clothing to produce a faithful recreation of a shirt.

Found Item Clothing interviewed me!

by Andy on June 28, 2011

andy is a cowboy

Travis over at Found Item Clothing asked if I’d like to answer a few questions about t-shirt blogging and my thoughts on the tee industry, and as you might have guessed from the title I thought it was a good idea. There are a few different things in the interview from the norm, which I always think is a good thing, so if you feel like you don’t spend enough of your day reading stuff I’ve written then head over to the FIC blog.

Oh, and Travis filed the interview under ‘Internet Celebrities’, I don’t think I’m quite there yet!

how to make vintage t-shirts

My buddies over at Found Item clothing have put together a really interesting series of posts showing you how to speed up the aging process and give your brand new shirt a more vintage look. The posts haven’t all gone live yet (they will be by the end of the week), but there’s already some really good information there including step by step tutorials showing you show to age a t-shirt using different processes. They’ve clearly put a lot of work in so it’s worth taking a look, and the results of some of the processes look really good.

wild thing major league t-shirt

I must admit I don’t think I’ve seen the film ‘Major League’, but that shirt, and the shirt worn in the film look almost exactly the same, so good work Found Item!

x-men t-shirts

That title is probably a giveaway that this isn’t another epic HYA list that I drive myself crazy writing for several days, made far too long and has many errors in it, that I then flog within an inch of it’s life trying to get other people to blog/tweet/facebook about it. This list is actually enjoyable to read, to me at least, since it clearly doesn’t take itself too seriously and has some fun X-Men t-shirts in it (like the on above, which was photoshopped, then turned into a real t-shirt design).

Check out the full list over at Found Item Clothing’s Blog.


tech noir terminator t-shirt

This is what I like about Found Item Clothing, they don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk too:

Technically speaking, this doesn’t actually appear in tee form in The Terminator. We took the neon script from the nightclub of the same name – this is where Kyle Reese first finds Sarah Connor and Arnold’s T-800 – and reproduced that in tee form. I’m pretty sure that no one else sells anything like it. Attached is a screen grab for your reference; likewise, if you want to know more about the history of the phrase, which was coined by James Cameron himself, you can do so here:

I would imagine that they’re right, it takes a certain kind of t-shirt company to create a t-shirt based on a nightclub in a movie.

27 Tees for Valentine’s Day

by Andy on February 16, 2011

scott pilgirm t-shirt

Sure, this post is of no help to you right now, but I didn’t even know it existed until this morning, so cut me some slack, and if you haven’t got your significant other a present by you’re probably a pretty crappy boyfriend/girlfriend anyway.

Travis over at Found Item Clothing has put together a list of tees on the theme of love, but it’s not your typical business like list (like mine that are all about hitting big numbers), it’s a bit more fun than that, enjoy!


halloween costume guide

Found Item Clothing sell t-shirts that are faithful recreations of designs found in movies (generally 80s movies), so it’s pretty natural that people are going to want to wear them on Halloween to a party, but how do you complete the outfit? I didn’t know about this but pparently for the past few years FIC have been putting together halloween costume guides for some of their movie tees, and this year is no different, with a few more additions to the guide. They provide a head-to-toe guide of everything the character wears (in this case Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), and even a print-out card that you could take with you if you went shopping for items for your outfit.


Rage All Night by Found Item Clothing

by Andy on September 1, 2010

rage all night t-shirt

I’ve never heard of the film North Shore, which this shirt was inspired by, but apparently it exists and is “a poor man’s Karate Kid – only with waves and longboards.” However, my lack of familiarity with the film doesn’t make me like the tee any less, hell it probably makes me like it more since in the film the design is apparently printed onto a vest.

ferris buellers day off t-shirt

I am areally big fan of Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, they just don’t make teen movies like that anymore, nowadays if you’re making a movie aimed at 16-20 year olds there has to be lots of unnecessary boob and gross out scenes, and whilst FBDO does have that in parts, it’s a lot more charming and endearing than it’s modern counterparts. If you think about it Ferris is actually a bit of an asshole, but it was done in a way that made you like the guy, put the same character into a film today and he’d look like a total douche.

Found Item Clothing have given FBDO the experimental jetset treament, and while they were at it did the same to the Goonies.

Lost Boys t-shirt by Found Item Clothing

Post image for Lost Boys t-shirt by Found Item Clothing

I haven’t seen Lost Boys, which this tee is taken from, but I know a cool, wearable, tee when I see one and this simple design certainly slips into that category.
