TSHIRT STORE have really cool logo shirts

by Andy on March 22, 2013



TSHIRT STORE definitely don’t make cheap shirts, but they more than make up for it with the quality of their designs, they’ve got to be one of the most consistent stores out there and it’s good to see them doing something interesting with these logo-based shirts.

Untitled get logo tees right

by Andy on January 7, 2013

Post image for Untitled get logo tees right





I am the kind of guy that used to complain a lot about logo tees and how “I didn’t want to be a walking billboard”, but I’ve changed my tune somewhat over the past few years, gaining an appreciation for a good logo and also recognising that it is hard to make simple t-shirts look good, the less there is in a design the easier it is to notice when something isn’t quite right, but with Untitled I think they do get it right on their logo tees. It’s simple, but it looks good.

I am still of the belief that clothing companies shouldn’t launch with just logo tees, artwork is something that anyone can like, whereas you generally need to have a vested interest in a brand to want to buy one of their logo shirts, so it’s a good thing that Untitled have that Iwan Smit collaboration in their starting lineup for people that don’t necessarily dig the cleanliness of the logo shirts. You’re looking at €30 for the logo tees and €35 for the colourful collaboration with shirts avaiable in S-XL.

These guys launched from Rotterdam back in December so it’s early days but there’s definitely a lot of promise there so I look forward to seeing what they come up with next.

egonomics clothing



One of the things that I complain about most on HYA is brands that have too many logo shirts in their shops and not enough designs. That isn’t actually the case with Egonomics, who have a good mix of original designs and items based on their logo and name, but it’s this ‘E’ shirt which stood out to me the most when I took a look at their store.

Three new shirts from OLOW

by Andy on June 2, 2012

OLOW t-shirts



Three new web exclusive designs hit the OLOW store a couple of days ago, limited to 30 pieces each (so hopefully they won’t have sold out by the time this post goes live) and available in mens and womens cuts for 35€ each. It’s interesting to see that they have decided to release three designs that are so different from each other, though there wasn’t design consistency in their store before so I don’t know why I should start expecting some now.

Big SS12 release from Vapour Clothing

by Andy on March 8, 2012

vapour clothing

Naturally I think this is our best range yet but obviously im biased. I genuinely think we are maturing as a brand well.

That’s what Andy over at Vapour Clothing said to me in the e-mail I got about their latest range. I’m inclined to agree, they’ve really kicked things up a notch with this release and I’m not just saying that because they’re releasing a larger quantity of designs than usual, but because they share a largely coherent theme and you can see how they’ve found a style that works for them, and presumably for their fanbase as well. It’s good to see a UK label being this ambitious so I hope this launch goes well for them.

whadafunk t-shirt

One the face of it, this new t-shirt from WHADAFUNK has their name on it and a couple of women working stripper poles either side. In theory, I should utterly hate this t-shirt, and yet, there is something kind of interesting about it, the style reminds me of a 70s TV show logo given a bit of a seedy twist, and because of that I’m willing to give the naked bodies on the shirt a pass since they seem like a necessary part of the design rather than something thrown in to titillate and make it a shirt your Grandma wouldn’t want you wearing. I’m still a bit on the fence about it, but I do like the colour choices and think that it’s well done.

New shirts and restocks at Seventh.Ink

by Andy on February 22, 2012

knocked speechless t-shirt




I’m still trying to get through the backlog of e-mails I received whilst I was falling down the mountains in Italy, which is why despite this realease going live at Seventh.Ink almost two weeks ago I’m still regarding it as new, because if I haven’t seen it, it’s new to me.

The skull shirt is the most interesting release of course, with it being the only original art in the collection, the Lucky Brains shirt is a restock, and I do like those shirt colours for some fresh variations on their logo tee.

A couple of new shirts from PHENÜM

by Andy on February 20, 2012

PHENÜM t-shirts




My favourite of these two recent releases from Phenum is that logo shirt, I know that style is a little played out at the moment since it feels like everyone is doing it, but they have at least put a little twist on it and it’s a look that works (otherwise people wouldn’t be doing it). Logo tee is 28€ and the face tee, made in collaboration with artists Fred Quemener is 30€, a little more than I’d like to see but as someone who has driven through France many times I realise that clothing in France isn’t cheap.

“Create & Conquer” t-shirt by SPCL DLVY

by Andy on January 6, 2012

create & conquer t-shirt

Considering that I harp on about how I don’t really like clothing companies that plaster their logo or name all over tees during their first release it’s a bit odd that I would pick this shirt from the lineup at SPCL DLVY, considering it features their name more prominently than anything else in the collection, but I like the shirt because the name looks cool, so I guess sometimes you don’t need to be a massive fan of a brand to want to pick up their logo shirt.

snakes & sinners t-shirt

Snakes & Sinners dropped me a line to say “hey, we exist.” I already knew about them but to be honest haven’t checked in for a long time, and it’s definitely a lot different in their store since last time I looked. They’re just name/logo oriented, but there’s nothing really wrong with that, over the years they must have built up enough of a fan base that they can get away with it, and with lovely shirts like this one I think you can call me a fan too.

“Right On” t-shirt by 5050Jam

by Andy on October 5, 2011

5050jam


I’m not really sure what the meaning is behind it, and I’d rather that the guy didn’t have a soul patch, but this is still a pretty cool shirt, I’d bet that it looks good on a person rather than a mockup. This shirt is part of 5050jam’s Autumn/Winter collection which I’ve shown above, I think that the ‘Right On’ shirt is probably the pick of the bunch and it’s very much a logo-based release, but if you like the shirt above the rest of the collection is worth a look.

$19.99 Buy it at 5050Jam

Two new shirts and two reprints at Omunky

by Andy on September 22, 2011

omunky organic t-shirts




The two shirts up top are new (yes, inlcuding the logo one, it’s in a new colourway), and the two beneath are the reprints, all of them are $22.99 each. When you put all the shirts together like that it’s interesting just how much that Rick sticks two a style with his designs, it must be working for him!

Oh, and OMUNKY are running a blogger contest, giving a shirt to the first blogger to make a referred sale (you need to say “Andy from HYA sent me” or something along those lines on the order confirmation page). If that blogger happens to be me I will give the tee to one of the other HYA bloggers so they can review it, which works out well for everyone. The winning blog also gets a coupon code to use for a year that will be good for 18% off, so you guys will benefit from the win too. If another blog wins I’ll still write about the couponcode, it would just be nice if the coupon code was hideyourarms rather than someotherblogthatisinnowayasgoodashyaandprobablysmellsfunny.

A cool logo tee from Frauds & Felons

frauds & felons logo t-shirt





Yo, Frauds & Felons, you don’t need to have a logo that big on your Big Cartel store, I can barely even see t-shirt when I’m looking at a product page. Cool logo though!

“No Guts No Glory” logo t-shirt

by Andy on September 10, 2011

no guts no glory t-shirt

I like it when a company releases a logo shirt that doesn’t require you to really be a fan of the brand to want to buy the shirt, something no doubt made easier by ‘no guts no glory’ being a well known phrase, but that doesn’t stop me thinking that this is a damn fine t-shirt.
