hp lovecraft t-shirt

I’m not 100% sure what ‘it’ is, but whatever ‘it’ is, The Affair always bring ‘it’ when they release a new tee. Yet another design of theirs that I would be happy to see in my wardrobe.

Costiness=£26.90 (according to their newsletter, but it says £29.90 on the prduct page) Buy it at The Affair.


Post image for Dance Party Massacre 2012 Fall release is live

There are a lot of collections being released right now, it’s hard to keep up!

Dance Party Massacre are celebrating their 5th anniversary with this latest release, and they’re doing so with style putting out 8 new items, all of which I would happily wear (always a good sign). Great lookbook images (and video too), and they even did a ‘Zombie Fashion Show‘ recently to show off the new tees which is definitely worth a look. Tees with run you $20/$22 and the crew neck is $37.95.

This season’s drop happens to be our 5 year anniversary. Launching in 2007 at a house party, the brand has come a long way being carried in stores domestic and overseas, having numerous write-ups in publications, and continuing to have fans who’ve been there from Day 1.

The Fall 2012 collection takes a nod at the past reprinting a top selling shirt from our first season, while putting out an anniversary design to celebrate the time passed. The well-known horror imagery and metaphors Dance Party Massacre has come to be known for is combined with a subtler design approach. The season is taken into context too, referencing Halloween and also using more subdued fall colors not always seen in the line. Overall it’s a mix of new and old, and adjusting with the times while celebrating our core ideas.

Here’s to the next 5 years!


Danse Macabre

by Mr Four Fingers on July 2, 2012

Goat Tee - Danse Macabre

Whilst going through some bookmarked websites I found that Danse Macabre is currently having a clearance sale with all t-shirts being priced at £5. I bought myself Goat Tee and figured I might as well give the guys a quick review. The Danse Macabre (Dance of Death) brand itself is coming to an end but where this one is dying another new project is replacing it called Wood & Nails. This new brand/ collective also features dark symbology but with far less horror. [click to continue…]

Union Jack Skull t-shirt

With Manchester being my nearest major city I have a certain affinity for t-shirt brands for the area, so whilst the designs at Oblivion tend to be a bit darker oriented than I usually post, I do quite like them, and I can appreciate the quality of the artwork, and the rather unusual pricing point of £16.97 for the three latest designs (pictured above) they’re definitely acceptably priced for the UK market. Here’s what Paul, Oblivion’s owner, said this of the brand:

My aim as a company is to give people a quality t-shirt with a great print at an affordable price, I’ve designed a lot of things throughout my life with a passion for it, I hope this comes across on the shirts. The company is based in the UK (Manchester) and I hope to grow the company more in the following years :)

Seems like a nice guy, visit his site.


8-Bit Zombie Tees

Post image for 8-Bit Zombie Tees

I was looking through the Tee Madness 2012 contestants and I came across 8-Bit Zombie, the name sounded awesome so I decided to check them out. After going through the cheesy, but quirky, homepage I discovered a whole slew of kick ass looking t-shirts. There are definitely t-shirts to suit the taste of anyone who enjoys a (8)bit of 80’s retro nostalgia. My personal favourite being the Bettlejuice t-shirt, even though I’ve not watched the film I still love the colours and design of it. I’m certainly considering buying one because my girlfriend would love the Labyrinth design. 8-Bit Zombie guys also managed to get into the second round of Tee Madness, if you want to vote in round 2 head on over to the site.


T-shirt News for March 13th

firefly t-shirt

Serenity/Firefly tee up at TeeFury.

I tried to make nacho cheese a couple of weeks ago, it was hideous, America, what are you thinking with that stuff? Shirt.Woot.

TMNT meets Queen in this unexpected mashup at RIPT.

I don’t think I ever considered that I’d post a horror Mary Poppins t-shirt, but Qwertee have filled in that gap.

Goonies in the style of Peanuts anyone? Shirt Punch.

24tee may have posted this previously, but it still made me smile, it’s just so bold!

Hmmm, I get the feeling that I haven’t seen the episode of Community that this TeeRaiders shirt is referring to.

Tusken Raiders new in at Tshirt Contest. Can anyone else think of a place that they’ve seen this concept before, I’m sure I’ve seen it elsewhere?

That’s pretty cool, DBH.

“Don’t use the Z word” is a Shaun of the Dead shirt up at GraphicLab for the rest of the week (I’m glad the lateness of this design was just a blip, I was a little worried about them).

Made in the Now have a shirt about love letters that recently went on display at a museum in California sent by Richard Nixon to his future bride.

Tilteed have an old shirt with a massive anteater on it.

Emma Stone hates cancer, possibly likes Star Wars.

Jake Nickell has a good blog post about why Threadless exists.

To celebrate 4 years of having his own store Glennz is offering a massive 40% off until Friday with the coupon code gt4years.

TwinSrpnt are offering 25% of tees all this month.

This is a dog wearing a t-shirt.

Disturbia SS12 out now!

by Andy on March 12, 2012

disturbia clothing

I was a little bit out of the loop with the latest release at Disturbia, as the collection went on sale a bit over a week ago, but it’s still pretty fresh news if you ask me.

It’s a pretty big release, but that’s hardly surprising since they’re pretty big now, we all know I’m not big into my horror designs, but they’ve made a name for themselves in that niche and they have quite a lot of stuff that I’d wear even though I don’t spend much time in that corner of the market, which suggest to me that they’re doing something right. Check out the lookout after the break.

zombie t-shirts

I don’t think that I’ve ever seen zombie t-shirts like this before. Antonio Ladrillo is an illustrator from Barcelona, Spain, that recently released this interesting mini-collection of tees featuring simple and colourful faces of zombies. Each is available for 29€ in his store, which is more than I’d usually pay for a t-shirt, but then again I rarely buy t-shirts so my view of the value of a shirt is fairly distorted by now.

Daily Tees & News for December 20th

by Andy on December 20, 2011

night of the living dead t-shirt

This TeeFury shirt has everything, horror, a movie parody, 80s games, 8-bit, and lots of criticism in their comments about the head looking pasted on!

Not often you see an orange shirt, usually it only happens when Tilteed pull this design out of the closet.

This Shirt.Woot design is simple but I like it. I’ve never ordered anything from Shirt.Woot, what are their delivery times like? Any chance you’ll be able to wear this before Egg Nog season is over?

dance party massacre

Quite a cool concept in this release from Dance Party Massacre, they’ve combined three famous horror characters with three of the biggest pop stars of all time. There’s also their eyeconic logo on a sweatshirt, just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t show off your DPM fandom.


Daily Tees & News for November 29th

night of the living dead t-shirt

Very cool Night of the Living Dead shirt from TeeFury today.

Here’s another Firefly design I don’t understand at Qwertee, and I’m all the more confused because it is a Jurassic Park mashup too.

Song Bird makes another appearance at Tilteed.

Good use of negative space from today.

Nice take on the old proverb from Shirt.Woot.

I guess that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles must be popular again since there is a definite rise in the amount of TMNT shirts I’ve been seeing recently, and I’m not exactly hunting them out. From $10 at RIPT.

I previously featured this shirt a couple of weeks ago when it was on RedBubble, but now it has made it’s way over to The Yetee for the next few days.

I haven’t seen Machete but this parody shirt from OtherTees still makes me laugh.

How depressed does Snuffaluffagus look? 24tee.

As a big Community fan I am very pleased to see this ‘Troy & Abed in the morning’ shirt up at TeeRaiders.

The infinite Swiss army knife makes a return to Loviu.

Nice to see a Zoidberg/Futurama shirt on Shirt Punch today.

I think I’d probably like this latest DBH shirt if it didn’t have the sea turtle on it, but it’s still wearable nevertheless.

Don’t worry, it’s cool to be a nerd now! $11 down from $20 at BustedTees today.

The Cool Hunting gift guide is now live.

I Am The Trend have an excellent post introducing Grave Takers, a new brand from Kyle Crawford of Electric Zombie fame.

RUReppin found some useful articles for t-shirt designers.

threadless coupon code
Don’t forget about that massive 50% off coupon at Threadless (40% off hoodies), with free shipping available if you spend more than $60.

Glennz Cyber Monday deal for 20% off all tees will be expiring at midnight tonight CST. Use the code mondaytuesday to receive the discount.


lady gaga halloween t-shirt

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shirt that references Lady Gaga before, so that’s something new from TeeFury.

Yup, the Disney logo is a shirt meme, fortunately the designs I’ve seen so far have been pretty cool, and I’d count this offering from Qwertee amongst that group.

Interesting shirt from Tilteed (that I presume they’ve sold before since they have model shots of it), nice big print on it. have been cranking out the new designs recently, huh?

Excellent work from former HYA writer Randyotter at Shirt.Woot today, this may well be the cutest penguin shirt I’ve ever seen.

Fun shirt from RIPT today, though of course no one will know you’re wearing it in Winter because you’ll have several layers on top.

Nicely done Portal shirt at The Yetee today.

Pity that you won’t be able to get this 24tee shirt in time for Halloween, I’m sure it could be useful with a few outfits.

Can someone explain the reference on this TeeRaiders shirt/hoodie? Is it referencing an actual event or is it purely invented by the artist?

Lovely starry negative space design by Loviu today, right up my street.

When memes and games collide at Shirt Punch today with ‘Snake in a Box’.

Catch of the Day Tee again don’t have anything on their site, I wonder why they don’t put up a message when they haven’t got a shirt to offer, or why they don’t just run the shirts for another day of sale.

Ugmonk have got a new lookbook that reveals no new tees, but does look pretty.

The Daily Street have a roundup of Johnny Cupcake‘s Halloween release event in London.

Dark Bunny Tees have put a new shirt up for pre-order, this one celebrates The Last Starfighter, and the first 100 orders will also receive a free Space Invaders styled poster.

Glennz has cut the price of all the ‘scary’ shirts in his catalogue to $13.95 until the end of the month.

How to start a clothing company takes a look at the pros and cons of screenprinting vs. direct to garment printing.

Mashable put out an article not-that-long-ago that called ‘10 Essential Tips for Startups‘, and judging by some of the things I get in my inbox I think that quite a few t-shirt companies could do with heeding some of their advice.

A Better Tomorrow must be getting close to relaunching their site, take advantage of the savings on their own shirts (this offer doesn’t apply to brand stores).

Post image for Epic Daily Tee Roundup for October 24th: 15 shirts!

Lots and lots of shirts to mention today, and the daily offering will grow tomorrow when another site joins the fray.

Very cool Shaun of the Dead (right?) shirt from TeeFury today.

Wait, is Supernatural really popular? There certainly seems to be a lot of related shirt for it, such as this one at Qwertee.

Last few hours to pick up ‘Get a Job’ at Tilteed.

Ahhh Dr. Mario, that series didn’t last too long, did it? Shirt $12 at Nowhere Bad.

Nice work from, they’ve been impressing me recently.

I suppose that this Shirt.Woot tee will suffice for those days when you don’t want to wear your $35 Johnny Cupcakes shirt in the kitchen.

I think that this is probably one of my favourite Zelda designs, good work RIPT.

Yeah, that works, nice stuff, The Yetee.

It’s funny the Fry & Leela romance storyline causes me to feel more than just about any other show or movie, and it’s on a cartoon, and one of them is a mutant. TeeMinus24.

Oooh, this is timely, what with the Iraq war ‘ending’. $14.99 down from $21.99 at Uneetee.

I don’t watch House, so I don’t get this, but maybe you will. OtherTees.

This shirt from 24tee misses the mark for me, perhaps they and I are just on different wavelengths, but I will keep posting them anyway since I’m sure some of you will like their stuff.

Interesting Mario shirt from TeeRadiers today.

Timely shirt from GraphicLab this week, you won’t get it in time for Halloween, but I think you can wear this all year round. Well, maybe not on Christmas day.

I don’t like the way that the 4 eyes are exactly the same, but this Loviu shirt is interesting nevertheless.

Catch of the Day Tee have nothing on their site today.


monster under the bed t-shirt

As part of my attempts to make HYA less about me, me, me and more about every aspect of the t-shirt world, I’ve brought in another blogger to share another angle of the design world, but instead of pointing out cool t-shirts by other people, Sleepy Dan will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run a clothing line. It’s something that I really like to see on brand’s blogs, so it was perfectly natural to bring that kind of experience onto HYA, to give tee-fans and other brands an insight into how a t-shirt goes from the idea stage to being worn by a customer. It will be a long-running series (we have no plans to put a cap on it’s length), and I’m really looking forward to it. If there are any other brands that would like to share their knowledge and experiences please get in touch.

Sleepy Dan’s most recent release is also going to be a series. The ‘Monster Under The Bed’ series will be released every Halloween, limited to 60 pieces (individually numbered), and as you would expect, have something of a horror theme. The shirt is $28 and available now from Sleepy Dan.


scream ghostbusters t-shirt

Do any of you guys actually buy t-shirts specifically with Halloween in mind, such as this shirt by McNasty at RedBubble, or are you more into traditional costumes that are a bit more extravagant?

Costiness=£15.57 Buy it at RedBubble


166 Days – what’s all this then?

by Andy on September 21, 2011

166 days t-shirts

I’m sure that if you asked some brand owners they’d say that 166 Days is the amount of time it takes me to respond to e-mails on average, but in reality it is actually a newish (launched in 2010) t-shirt brand from Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve only been to Glasgow once (I live an hour for the border with Scotland but rarely have a need to visit), but remember it being pretty cool.

At the moment they have 3 t-shirts available in their store, two of which I like and one I don’t, which is a pretty good hit rate for a brand nowadays since I’ve become honest/mean about brands. The red shirt is just a bit dull for me, they call it ‘The Horror’and I can understand why, but the print looks a bit dull and it just doesn’t interest me. The other two are pretty interesting though, the technical style of the spine shirt is something I like to see and the ‘graffiti’ shirt is really wearable. Shirts weigh in at £15.99 a piece.


i like classic horror movies t-shirt

Now this is the kind of horror shirt that even I like, good work as usual from A Better Tomorrow (who will hopefully be launching a very nice looking new site soon).

Costiness=€23 (early bird price) Buy it at A Better Tomorrow


slasher brand t-shirts

I don’t hate all horror tees, they just aren’t really the kind of thing that I’d go for if I were to walk into a shop that had every kind of tee in it, I’d go for the stuff that you usually see written about on HYA. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with them or that style, it’s just not for me, so I always feel a bit harsh when a horror brand writes to me and I don’t really know what to say about them.

From the looks of the designs Slasher are pretty cool, from the 5 items available at the moment I think that the two ‘open-mouth’ designs are my favourites, which is cool because you know things would be a bit weak if the Obey-inspired design was my favourite. Obey parodies are fun, but they shouldn’t be the cornerstone of any brand and thankfully they aren’t here. All the shirts, and the tank top, are $28 each and available now. Slasher are sending over a tee to a HYA blogger so hopefully we will have a review of their goods soon.


“Make a Wish” t-shirt at Loviu today

by Andy on September 6, 2011

make a wish t-shirt

Not the kind of design that I’d usually go for personally, but I am awfully impressed by the artwork. €12 today at Loviu.
