“Yeti Kowloon” t-shirt by GAMAGO

yeti in kowloon t-shirt

There’s something really cool about the way that this shirt mixes the real with the imaginary that really tickles me.

XLarge x Halo Wars Pack

by Andy on March 1, 2009


I think we can safely file this post under ‘things you won’t buy’ unless you happen to be in Hong Kong, and probably near the front of a long line of streetwear obsessives. Actually, this collaboration between XLarge and the Halo team was released at HK Double Park locations on February 26th, so your best bet is probably eBay by this point.

So, you won’t be buying this collabo pack (tee, hat, USB stick), but are any HYA-ers going to be picking up Halo Wars on Tuesday? Is this going to be the game that makes me regret not dumping half the contents of my suitcase out and replacing it with my Xbox?

Hidden Message Tees by CLOT

by Andy on November 28, 2008

One of the reasons why I like streetwear companies is because they seem to really enjoy trying something different and pushing the envelope, and these tees by CLOT are a great example of that. From certain angles, this range of tees look as if they just have a solid pattern on them, but then if you catch them just right a hidden messages is revealed, saying something apparently powerful though actually kind of meaning-less like “Fuck the Paparazzi,” “Only God can Judge Me,” and “Sex is not a crime.”

According to Hypebeast:

The set will launch November 25th, 2008 at the Juice store in Hong Kong and while the white “Sex is not a crime” version will be exclusively sold at Malaysia’s Playground.

I’m a little annoyed that I’ve just found about about this Juice store in Hong Kong, because it looks really cool and I never went there back in February, despite staying in a hotel that was less than 10 minutes walk from Causeway Bay the shopping Mecca (it was amazing) where the shop is located.

New tees at Wrongwroks

by Andy on November 25, 2008

You know what surprised me about Hong Kong? Charlie Brown is huge over there, to the point at which I simply had to check it out and go in one of the Charlie Brown coffee shops and try some of the cheesecake (and good grief it was tasty). The place was totally surreal, everything was CB branded and styled, it felt like I was sat in a cartoon.

I guess that the fascination with Charlie Brown might be why Wrongwroks were inspired to create this simple but instantly recognisable design. There’s also a couple of other designs/colourways in the gallery.

Beams T in Hong Kong

by Andy on April 24, 2008


I think a sign that t-shirts are taking over my life came in Hong Kong wen I was excited to spot an Beams T, the much-collaborating Japanese tee label, and one of their famous t-shirt conveyor belts, in a mall on a street in Kowloon (they also have a larger store in Kowloon Tong, but even I won’t travel on 3 trains for 40 minutes for t-shirt conveyor belt).The tees weren’t exactly cheap, but they were nicely designed by names that I actually recognised (although owning the Beams T book probably has something to do with that), and they’re a really cool brand that can happily sit in any tee junkies closet, so I recommend you check them out if you get a chance.

Black T-shirt by PHLow

by Andy on April 18, 2008


I spotted this Hong Kong-based brand on Flickr a few months ago and forgot to post about them for some reason. I realise now what that reason might be, I don’t know how you actually buy the stuff. I’ve found their website, but I can’t work out anything past that, and not just because I can’t read Cantonese (I have a phrasebook, but that’s of no help as I’m not asking them where a restaurant is). Even by clicking around I can’t really achieve anything, so if you can work it out then I’d appreciate someone making a comment, but if not, just enjoy the pictures.

HYA is back from Hong Kong!

by Andy on March 5, 2008

PICT8173 (Large)

After an unexpected and unwelcome 24 flight delay (props to Air France, they did put us all up in a hotel, but a 24 hour delay is still crazy) I’m back from Hong Kong and ready to get back in the swing of blogging. I got loads of e-mails whilst I was away from new (to me) brands, and loads of offers and deals (some of which have now sadly expired) so, I might be focusing less on product picks over the next few days whilst I try and clear out the backlog.

If you’d like to see what I was up to on holiday then check out my blog (admittedly, I wrote a lot more about food than what I got up to, and I didn’t write often enough). If you think you already read way too much of my waffly writing, check out my Hong Kong Flickr set, which will be expanding considerably over the next few days after I finish up processing all my RAW picture files.


HYA is going to Hong Kong!

Hong Kong skyline by Steve Webel

Yeah, bet you didn’t expect to see that title on a HYA post!

I managed to get a great deal and will be heading off on Friday morning, I’m going to try and write up enough posts before I go so that there will be something new every day, but I can’t guarantee that will actually happen as I am often a lazy, lazy man.

Apparently, my hotel in HK has free wifi, so if you really need to get in contact with me I should be contactable by e-mail, and if you want to keep tabs on my travels (I can practically guarantee pictures of me eating unidentifiable meat!) then check out my personal blog.
