Bakesy is back at Johnny Cupcakes

by Andy on August 19, 2013

Definitely one of the better Johnny Cupcakes designs to be released over the past few months. It’s yours for $36 if you missed out on it the first time.


I’m English and don’t really follow hockey so I have little clue about the Boston Bruins, and only know this is related to the design above because I Googled the name for this post (…journalism!), but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying this as a design, though with the way sports rivalries are I’d imagine that it would be off-putting for fans of other teams. Forever Gold are releasing this as a long-sleeve tee, which is something we don’t see often ’round these parts to celebrate their first year of being in business, it’s heather grey, limited to 50 pieces (never to be printed again), and yours for $25.


Post image for Inkefx drop a new hoodie and it’s just lovely

Inkefx do seem to have a knack of producing quite minimal but iconic items that just about anyone would like to wear, and this t-shirt style hoodie (i.e. it’s thinner than a normal hoodie) is no exception. As a bonus you can get 15% off with the coupon code HIDEYOURARMS.

young love t-shirt

Well isn’t hat just lovely. I like the way that it works on two levels, both with the people who are aware of the brand, and as a standalone design which people can understand without having to be told that this is the name of an indie brand from California who give part of your sale to a good cause which you can pick from during the checkout process, which is a nice way of connecting the purchase with a tangible piece of charity work.

I went down the rabbit hole a bit with this shirt, and still I have no good information.

I spotted this Salvador Dalek shirt first on this Tumblr, and know what Doctor Who fans you guys are I decided to try and find out where to buy it.
The image looked like it was taken at a market or on a stall of some kind (based on the metal frame the shirts are stuck too), which didn’t give me much of a clue, but did make me feel a bit like Sherlock. I then Googled Salvador Dalek and came up with many worse shirts, until I came across this eBay auction selling the design with the seller claiming to have bought it at a British beer festival, it being too big for him, so he’s selling it.

I then went back to the original Tumblr and realised that the image was linked to Imgur, the popular photo service that was built by a Redditor and is used by many Redditors. This then led me back to the original thread on Reddit which was started by the person who took the picture, stating that it was seen at the Cambridge Beer Festival (where more than 100,000 pints were drank last week). Another commenter mentioned that they’d bought it at the Brighton Beer Festival last year, so I assume that means the sellers travel around different festivals selling shirts, which hopefully means that they might have a web presence of some kind.

Alas, that is where the trail ends, I could gain any more info about the name of the company selling them, so I’m throwing the net a bit wider and involving you guys on the off chance that one of you has seen the shirt being sold somewhere or know the designer/company.


hello kitty skull design

I am really digging this, nice work by Joby, hopefully Sanrio won’t come knocking on Blure’s door with a C&D. I wish it was available as a t-shirt and not just a tank top, but that’s just me, Summer is coming and people want to get their arms out.

“Amsterdam” by Wildness Now

amsterdam t-shirt

First things first, this shirt is sold out, sorry, but I still wanted to share it. I’m taking to my lovely girlfriend to Amsterdam in a couple of weeks (happy birthday Wuggums!) and when I spotted this shirt over at Troundup I thought it was too serendipitous not to be mentioned. Really nice piece of typework incorporating the three X’s that form part of this wonderful city’s crest, and I’m sure it’s a far nicer shirt than any that we’ll see being bought by tourists when we’re there.

I’ve been to Amsterdam a couple of times before, but if there’s anything you think I should check out whilst I’m there (it doesn’t have to be t-shirt related, but it can be) then please do let me know in the comments.

color burst a better tomorrow t-shirt

I think that this is one of my favourite designs at A Better Tomorrow for quite a long time. That said, I feel that putting a colourful design like this onto a heather grey shirt washes it out a bit, thought that may have been the point of the choice of blank.

“Amen” t-shirt by Olow

amen t-shirt

I do quite like this shirt from OLOW, but can anyone help me out in trying to understand it?

Costiness=34€ (limited to 30 pieces) Buy it at OLOW


wrongwroks hoody

I like it, and it’s cool to see Tony having no fear when it comes to printing over the zip, too. Available for $78 this week, rising next week, more pictures here.



“Drunk Orange” t-shirt at A Better Tomorrow

drunk orange t-shirt

I don’t think that I’d have put this onto a heather grey t-shirt, but it doesn’t stop it being a funny illustration, and A Better Tomorrow are allowed to like/do things that I don’t like.

Costiness=€22 (early bird price) Buy it at A Better Tomorrow


Jesus Skid Tee – I don’t get it, anyone?

jeses skid t-shirt

I like the style of this shirt and think it looks pretty cool, but I’m not ashamed to say that I don’t understand it. Is this a thing that young people do on their fixies?

Costiness=$29 Buy it at Jesus Skid


steve austin vs. sasquatch t-shirt

I don’t know what it means, but it’s weird enough to make me like it. I’ve been checking out the 80sTees feed quite as lot recently and they have quite a lot of fun, wearable designs, so expect to see them featuring more regularly here on HYA.

hide your arms tri-blend t-shirt

After the success of putting the HYA hoodies on sale in the HYA store last week I thought I’d offer the super soft tri-blend t-shirts on sale this week.

I understand that £16 is quite a lot to ask you to pay for a t-shirt when I’m writing about shirts that are cheaper every day from places like Shirt.Woot, Tilteed, TeeFury and RIPT, and lots of other places that aren’t daily sites but just running a standard line at less than that price, but I promise I’m not gouging you guys. I don’t get many shirts printed, I have them printed in the UK, and these particular shirts are American Apparel tri-blends, a shirt that isn’t particularly common in the UK. Those three things all push the price up. I’ve put the shirts on sale for £12 this week (until midnight on Sunday), at that price I’m actually making a loss on every t-shirt sold. Seriously, that’s how much I had to pay per shirt to have them produced, but I love these shirts, I don’t care that I won’t make profit on them because I just want people to be wearing them, enjoying them, and telling your friends about HYA. T-shirts are meant to be worn, not kept in a box in my bedroom.

As ever, all orders will receive a Hide Your Arms pin badge and a die-cut sticker. Availability is fairly limited, I have a few left of most sizes but that situation could quickly change.


battlestar t-shirt

As usual, I haven’t actually seen all of Battlestar, but this is one show that I do intend to watch in it’s entirety at some point, because I watched the first series and was very impressed. That means that just for a change, I actually understand what a movie-referencing t-shirt at a daily shirt site actually means!

Pick up this shirt from $10 at RIPT today.


when I was yuong hop scotch t-shirt

I love this design from laFraise, it’s just gorgeous, although I can’t decide whether I like the choice of a heather grey for the shirt, it’s obviously works really well on the hop scotch portion of the design but then I feel there’s not enough of a contrast on the green section of the design. I can’t decide what would have been a better choice for the shirt colour though, any thoughts?


“Hide & Seek” t-shirt by Choc Ice

by Andy on August 7, 2011

hide & seek t-shirt

If you were wondering, yes, this t-shirt was inspired by the Imogen Heap song.

This is a lovely new UK clothing line, they haven’t got a massive range yet but they do have a few tasty shirts, and I really like their name, it works well for a British brand (because Americans probably don’t even know what a choc ice is).

Costiness=£8.99 Buy it at Choc Ice

made in ca t-shirt

Part of me thinks that I shouldn’t like a t-shirt that is this simple, but another part of me thinks if I like something then I should just accept it, even if $28 for a one-colour print does seem a little much (I know, I know, artists cost money).

Costiness=$28 Buy it at Park Life [via ATshirtBlog]

every day t-shirt by a better tomorrow

This shirt isn’t exactly blowing me away, but if it was in my wardrobe and I pulled it out I’d be pretty happy to wear it.
