The Heads Of State – Cool tees from Philadelphia

by billpyle on October 10, 2012

The Heads of State are, in their own words, “A mom and pop design shop. A garage band agency.” from Philadelphia. Although they are more well known for their poster work, which is incredible, they have been occasionally hired to create t-shirt designs, and have also designed shirts for their own store. As a fellow designer, I am a big fan and incredibly jealous/envious of everything they do. They have a few other shirts in their store as well, but the Liberty Shirt and Infinite Records tees are my favorites. They are both printed on American Apparel and are $25 a piece.

Post image for Summer update (and sale!) from Wear Liberty

Wear Liberty is currently having a Christmas in July sale! $20 shirts are marked down to $15 and $15 shirts are marked down to $12. No discount code needed, the prices are already reduced at wearliberty.net.

Wear Liberty is also participating in two upcoming events in Philadelphia. This Saturday, July 28th, the Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men is playing a FREE show at the Piazza in Philly. Yes, that’s right, completely free! I will be there selling my Wear Liberty shirts and hoodies along with some other local vendors and artists. On August 5th, the 4th annual 2nd Street Festival will be taking place in the Northern Liberties area of Philadelphia. North 2nd Street will be closed down from 12pm-10pm for a day full of fun including beer gardens, food, art, workshops, local vendors, and live music! I will have a tent set up there with all my shirts and hoodies as well. If you’re in the area, stop by and say hi. Mention this post and I’ll give you some free goodies :)

Last but not least, Wear Liberty will be releasing a new design in the next month. I’ve gotten great responses and I’m pretty excited about it! This one color illustration was done by none other than the great Sven Palmowski (also known as a.mar.illo). I plan on printing some v-necks for the ladies and the always loved American Apparel fine jersey tees for the guys.

2012 Art Star Craft Bazaar!

by Matt on May 11, 2012

Post image for 2012 Art Star Craft Bazaar!

Art Star is an independent gallery and boutique in Philadelphia that showcases and sells all types of art from local artists. The two owners, Megan and Erin, also organize a yearly craft bazaar that brings together tons of local and regional artists and companies to sell their handmade goods at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia. I was lucky enough to be accepted as one of over 150 participants this year! So if you’re in the Philly area this weekend, I highly recommend checking out the 2012 Art Star Craft Bazaar. And make sure to stop by booth #20 where I will be selling my Wear Liberty shirts! If you mention this post, I may even give you a free shirt :)

Valentine’s Day sale at Wear Liberty!

by Matt on February 14, 2012

http://wearliberty.net

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and spreading the love, I’m having a sale on my LOVE Park t-shirts! Until the end of V-Day, the LOVE tees are only $10. I don’t have international shipping set up, so if you’re outside the US and want to buy a shirt, just shoot me an email and I’ll gladly figure out a shipping price for you.

Also – a recent addition to the Wear Liberty collection is my Benjamin Franklin inspired design, “Lightning is Electric!”. Designed by the one and only Yema Yema, this historic illustration is a 5 color print on a 100% cotton American Apparel t-shirt. The shirts were hand printed by Patrick, the awesome owner of Tilteed. There are only a few of each size available, so act quick before the lightning strikes!

Beyu Apparel got in touch to let me know about a stop motion video that they made recently. It’s a nice video and I like the music (though I’m not sure how long a video with that music will last on YouTube), but the thing that I really like about it is the location. When I was in Philly (which is almost 3 years ago now, it feels like a lot less) I would cross that street every day on the way into work, just about one block South of where it’s shot, so this vid got me all nostalgic and thinking about my time in one of America’s under-appreciated cities.

Candy Effect make some sweet tees

by Andy on September 21, 2011

candy effect clothing



Sorry, that title probably should have come with an awful pun warning.

Candy Effect are a new brand from Philadelphia (so I had to post them) that launched a couple of weeks back. For such newbies I must applaud them, they’ve put together a good looking line of shirts that’s fairly cohesive, even if I think it’s probably a bit too ambitious have two shirts in your opening range that are just the logo (the shirts aren’t pictured), since no one other than your friends will give a damn about the brand and logo shirts are the kind of thing that loyal fans will pick up. In general, it’s probably a better idea to start out with designs that don’t revolve entirely round your name and move into that kind of thing later, especially when the non-logo shirts are a lot more interesting as is the case with Candy Effect. Shirts are currently priced at $25 a piece.

They’ll be dropping three more tees and hoodies within the next month, so it will be interesting to see what direction they take.

Ropeadope Design Collective, act quick!

by Andy on December 11, 2010

ropeadope design collective

Ropeadope have put together a really nice collection of artists (Wotto, Seibei, Yema Yema, amongst others) and got them to make some equally nice t-shirts. Problem is, they all went on presale a while back, and the pre-sale will end on December 13th, and even Ropeadope aren’t sure if they’ll sell them after that, so you guys have only got a couple of days to decide if you wanna pick one, or two, or more shirts up. Totally, my fault, sorry I didn’t get on it earlier.

Another CHRMNG release

by Andy on October 22, 2010

CHRMNG fall release

As a Philly brand I’ve got a lot of love for CHRMNG, and not just because they’re from a city I loved living in, but because they’re forging their own way in the tee world. If you look at their catalogue you’ll find few signs that they just want to jump on trends, and their latest release is no different, because it’s just a load of different trees… on tees. It’s hardly new, I’ll grant you that, people have been putting trees onto t-shirts for years, but I like the way that they’ve done this, they’ve made a shirt for each season and represented it with the amount of foliage on the tree and the colour of the shirt. It’s a nice idea and I like the style they’ve used for the tree. All the shirts are $20, 10% of each purchase goes towards clothing people in Philadelphia that cannot afford to themselves (which was an issue, trust me), and you can get 10% off your order with the coupon code HYA.

They actually sent me a shirt from their previous range and the print quality is good (sorry that I’m so far behind on reviews, there’s always something getting in the way), so buy with confidence!

Coupon code for 25% off at CHRMNG

by Andy on August 31, 2010

chrmng coupon code

The folks over at CHRMNG sent me the tee you can see above and whilst I’m yet to wear it, the print quality definitely impressed me, so they get a seal of approval for me. Something else I approve of is 25% off coupon codes to encourage people to part with even more cash at the start of the school year. The coupon code is ILOVESCHOOL and I have no idea when it will expire.

philadelphia pretzel t-shirt

When I was in Philly I remember there being a lot of joy in the office the day that someone brought in a couple of boxes of fresh, delicious pretzels. When I first tried them I thought there was way too much salt on, but after brushing the majority of the salt I really enjoyed the doughy treat, so no wonder a new Philly-based brand called CHRMNG Industries wanted to celebrate them with a t-shirt.

Costiness=$20 Buy it at CHRMNG Industries

recycle t-shirt by print liberation

Philly’s finest are at it again, well, finest after Art In The Age, obviously, and this time, they’re saving the planet with a t-shirt that has a bike on it!

The cotton is 100% organic, and the ink is environmentally-friendly too, so you will be even more justified in feeling superior to people when you’re biking around town whilst they’re trying to mow you down in their cars.

Costiness=$22 Buy it at Print Liberation

There’s some big names in this pre-order release (meaning after May 20th, they’re gone), and some good looking tees too from this Philly-based brand.

Print Liberation’s Big Ass Sale

by Andy on January 15, 2010


It’s a little bit odd that Print Liberation have a tee proclaiming “FUCK, SHIT, DAMN, ASS, HELL” and yet they’ll censor a promo image that has the word ‘ass’ in it.

Destroy Fox News by Print Liberation

by Andy on November 13, 2009

fox_news1

Here’s the thing, I’m British, and even I hate Fox News. In fairness to them, whilst they are astoundingly biased, they do cover stories, unlike CNN, which I tried to watch when I was in America, but when I realised that they covered about 3 stories an hour I had to move on and just read the BBC online.

Costiness=$15 Available from Print Liberation

New Tees from Art In The Age

by Andy on October 12, 2009

artintheage

Okay, so these tees aren’t ‘new’ as they were released at least a week ago now, but if I haven’t seen them, they’re new to me!

In typical Art In The Age style, they’re pretty odd design, but also pretty great, so it works out quite nicely. AITA tees are good quality, so whilst $34 is not particularly cheap for a tee, I can guarantee (but not actually guarantee) that the tee will last for a long time. If you’re the kind of person that enjoys reading press releases (though to be fair, I actually managed to read this one without dying of boredom unlike most of the releases I get sent, yes, that’s right, I have died several times whilst reading press releases), I’ve included the one that accompanies this line after the break, also, the pic above links to a much larger version in which you can see the designs much better.

Military Jacket by Obakki at Matthew Izzo

by Andy on September 15, 2009

obakkijacket1image

This jacket is in no way cheap ($440), and I kind of suspect that the model is wearing at least a size too small for them, but damn it looks good. I was trying to think where I’d heard the name Matthew Izzo before, and then it struck me, Matthew Izzo had a shop along my walk to the office in Philly. I never actually went into the store, but my brother did, you have to be buzzed in (the doors are locked) and he found sweaters that were more than $600, so this jacket is actually a bit of a bargain!

Costiness=$440 Available from Matthew Izzo [via NotCouture]
