Margin London at HideYourArms

by Margin London on December 17, 2012

Margin London at HideYourArms

Margin London has been kindly invited to contribute to HideYourArms. We’ll be posting some news about up-and-coming labels that will be exhibiting at Margin in February 2013, which takes place on the 10th & 11th, but firstly we think we should introduce ourselves.

Started back in 2002 as an affordable platform for new designers, Margin is the longest-running independent trade exhibition in London. The show presents designer women’s and men’s tailoring and accessories, as well as streetwear for men and women, to invited store buyers and press.

The humble tee has long been a starting point for numerous labels, and we’ve seen many an exhibitor start off with a t-shirt offering which has grown over the seasons to include a full range of clothing. Supremebeing, Lazy Oaf, Seventyseven, Dephect, YourEyesLie, and many others all started at Margin with tees before growing their stockist base and extending their range to include clothing, bags, jewellery (or jewelry for Americans!), and hats.

Margin has been providing a launchpad for brands to meet with key buyers and press for 10 years to date, and 2012 marked a decade of exhibitions.

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition 10 Year Book

To commemorate the occasion, a limited-edition 10 year book was printed for visitors to the show, but it’s also available to download as a PDF or as a super-interactive book for iPad. The iPad version features extensive galleries of previous seasons, as well as videos, and can be downloaded here.

Here’s the link to posts where HideYourArms mentions Margin including brand updates from when they last visited (well overdue for a revisit but Andy & the HideYourArms London correspondent are returning in February 2013!).

Margin is an intimate showroom exhibition in a white gallery space in the heart of Central London, and the only tradeshow in the UK where buyers and press can discover new & emerging design talent (most making their debut launch).  When we say “NEW”, we don’t just mean new to Margin, we mean brand-spanking, never-been-seen-before, new!

GAMAGO’s Massive Spring Tee Release

by Andy on March 7, 2012



That up there in the photo where you have no idea what the new designs look like is the Spring line-up from GAMAGO (gallery after the break so you can take a look). There’s a total of 24 new designs, 12 for the guys and 12 for the ladies. I hadn’t really thought about it before but GAMAGO really do have a style all of their own and it’s really clear that they stick to it when you look at their catalogue as a whole. That’s is probably due to them having some well established and popular characters that they won’t want to mess with. All the tees weigh in at $28 a piece and are available now.

Daily Tees & News for November 9th

by Andy on November 9, 2011

gremlins t-shirt

Very cool Gremlins shirt at TeeFury today.


Tilteed are lucky that they’ve got such a solid back catalogue.


I don’t get it, but I like it at Stupidhurts.us


Decisions, decisions. Shirt.Woot


Cool Aliens-based shirt at RIPT today, though there is a little debate in their comments as to whether there are hints of Halo in there too.


Ahh, America’s pastime, watching Star Wars whilst eating Cheetos. OtherTees


Huh, what are the chances that two shirt companies do the same logo style design, and that they’re next to each other in my daily bookmarks folder? 24tee


Really nice from Loviu today, I think this style of tee is where they shine.


This Blues Brothers shirt was at TeeRaiders last week, and now it’s at Catch of the Day Tee.


Should this Harry Potter shirt not to be do to with Butter Beer? Shirt Punch


Trippy new shirt at DBH today.


Street Casuals have dropped a load of new Actual Pain goods.


T-shirt designer Gaunty is going to be running the LA marathon and is raising money for charity the same time. Donating to a worthy cause is it’s own reward, but actual rewards are pretty sweet too, so Gaunty has lined up a bit of a competition, giving away shirts that he has designed to people that have donated money.


GAMAGO are holding a massive once day sale at their shop in San Francisco, there will be booze!


VillainPlanet have released a couple of new poker-themed shirts that I assume are to do with a tournament and league in their native Portugal.


2SickBastards will be selling their tees for £11 on the 11th by the look of things.


Sin Star Clothing just launched their own fixed gear bikes, which look cool but obviously I have no idea if they’re good, there are mountains on every side of my house, a fixed-gear bike would be insanity. They have released a 10% off coupon though, FIXIE4THEWIN, which works on everything in the store, which is why I thought we’d better mention them.




Abyss (who are new to me) just dropped two new shirts and a sweatshirt. Use the coupon code Mintees to get 25% off.
