PLNDR Drops Some African Inspired Hats

by Amy_F on June 22, 2012


I don’t get this, I don’t want to get this.  All I can say is The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air was probably rockin’ one of these back in the day.  I’m not a member on PLNDR and I have no idea what brand produced these hats.  I stumbled across this photo on PLNDR’s Facebook Page which I do follow & was in complete shock, as I have been in a lot of lately because I just don’t get some of these styles brand’s are producing.  Being a stylist I can say THIS African-inspired type of hat is NOT in style nor is it returning anytime soon.  I honestly don’t think it ever was in style except for in the ’80’s.  But you tell me, would you wear this?

zombie enforcement agency t-shirt

Things really are getting quiet in the tee world as people get ready for Christmas and the last order dates are passed for most brands, hopefully we’ll all be able to relax soon.

But, but, where’s the reference in this TeeFury design?!


How weird that there would be a 1% milk shirt at Snorg this week, and then Shirt.Woot have something similar.


RIPT must be fans of The Walking Dead too.

teefury grab bag

Usually I think that mystery tees/grab bags are a bit of a waste of time, but in this instance I’m willing to be less cynical and accept that it’s a great way to pick up some shirts for friends & family at Christmas, pick up a couple of shirts in each size (you can order up to 12 per size) and if something turns up you like keep it for yourself, if not give it to a family member!


I really, really like this Hokkusai-based t-shirt design at RIPT today, absolutely fantastic.


All the bacon and eggs! Shirt.Woot.

boardwalk empire t-shirt

Hope everyone had a good weekend, I did, during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope it started to snow!

I can’t be the only person that feels kind of scared when this guy comes on screen during Boardwalk Empire, right? Definitely some fine acting going on there. TeeFury.


RIPT have a shirt that I’m sure will not anger any Star Wars or Star Trek fans.


Qwertee have dropped a Shining/Joker shirt for Jack Nicholson fans.

Daily Tees & News for December 2nd

teefury highlander t-shirt

When I opened all the daily sites today (21 tabs, Firefox doesn’t care for that much) I wondered whether I’d actually get to see the TeeFury site. Thankfully it turned up, so any possible malware that may have existed yesterday appears to have been removed and all is right with the world again. I remain disappointed by the response from TeeFury about the issue, it took them at least 13 hours to acknowledge any kind of problem (done by their Facebook page), and they only wrote about it after the warning message had been removed. They posted this message on Twitter at the same time as the Facebook message: “If you had trouble reaching http://teefury.com earlier, try now! We’ve addressed the issue that was causing problems: http://ow.ly/7LyK8″ That link now goes to a 404 page. Frankly, that is not good enough, if you might be exposing your fans to malware via your site you have to tell people by every avenue about the issue and warn them as soon as possible, not when you’ve fixed the problem, and you should make some kind of mention of it when you send out a newsletter that day (presumably to thousands of people). I still like TeeFury and will continue to write about them, but I do not like the way they dealt with this situation.


Nerd joke at RIPT today.

daredevil parody t-shirt

That’s how I like to start out the daily roundup, with a muscular naked man, thanks TeeFury!


‘Dead Head’ comes back from the dead at Tilteed.


Oh wow, it’s a Firefly/Serenity reference that I understand from RIPT.

Daily Tee & News Roundup for November 23rd

by Andy on November 23, 2011

star trek t-shirt

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s amazing that there aren’t more Star Trek t-shirts around. $10 today at TeeFury.


I like the name of this shirt, ‘Vinyl Frontier,’ almost as much as I like the design. $10 today at Tilteed.


Very nice Doctor Who t-shirt from Nowhere Bad today.


I’m not sure if this shirt at Stupidhurts.us is a Deadmau5 reference or not, but I like it.


Not my favourite Shirt.Woot design ever but it definitely fits with their style.


I’m fairly sure there are a lot of people that would like this RIPT version of Battlestar Battleship to be a real thing.


Awesome shirt at The Yetee today, who would have thought that “Star Wars x crappy Christmas sweaters” would be such a good concept for a design?


And here I was thinking that all the “people whose names are also a state” had been done, well done 24tee.


TeeRaiders are dropping a Firefly design today.


Loviu really liked The Dark Knight, presumably.


Catch of the Day Tee provide us with our second Doctor Who shirt for Wednesday.


Shirt Punch seem to be the only company that have realised The Muppets are really popular at the moment.


Very pretty design from DBH today.


Let me remind you that Rigu is a thing I launched last week and it would be brilliant if you could check it out.


Glennz has released a desktop calendar for 2012 featuring some of his favourite designs.


80sTees satisfy my thirst for Seinfeld t-shirts with this George Costanza ‘Professional Hand Model’ tee. for $22.


Monsieur Steve is offering 20% off in his store today only with the coupon code onlytoday, though you do have to spend €70 to qualify for the saving.


PLNDR have up to 55% off goods from Mishka NYC.


A few months back on I Am The Trend Monique from Antisparkle featured “3 Affordable and Creative Branded Packaging Ideas” that I’m sure store owners will want to take a look at.

I didn’t mean for this to turn into a daily roundup for store owner resources, but I’ve been finding some good stuff recently, here’s “Five Copywriting Errors That Can Ruin A Company’s Website” from Smashing Magazine.

Mashable have 7 Tips to Make Your Blog Stickier. A lot of shirt brands have a blog that this info can apply to, but it’s important to note that a lot of the tips apply to non-blog content too.

Kissmetrics have a super guide to marketing using Twitter, and also a post with a guy claiming to have a 2% bounce rate which if you know your bounce rates you know is astoundingly low.


I Am The Trend’s Black Friday List is up and it has more than 80 brands on it, crazy! My initial list will be up in a few hours.

Daily News & Tee Roundup for November 21st

by Andy on November 21, 2011

warwick davis t-shirt

I’ve had a change of tack today and I’m putting Shirt Punch at the top of the roundup because today their designer is not by a normal t-shirt artist, it’s by sophisticated dwarf about town Warwick Davis of Star Wars (and currently ‘Life’s too Short’) fame. I know that his new show has gotten a lot of negative press for exploiting short people, but I don’t think he’d be in the show if he didn’t think it was right for him. Nice to see Philip Schofield in the sideart section!


I watched the first episode of The Walking Dead (season 2) at the weekend so I think this TeeFury shirt is pretty dang cool.


Qwertee, or at least someone, has sold this ‘Joy of Death’ shirt before, I’m sure of it.


Very sweet design by BootsBoots at Tilteed today, and whilst it isn’t new to the site, it is new to me.


Nowhere Bad are referencing Iocane Powder from the Princess Bride again.


Seems like this camera t-shirts from Stupidhurts.us provides yet another lovely opportunity to mention my new camera accessories site, Rigu.


Rare that you see Shakespeare quoted on a t-shirt, but Shirt.Woot have pulled it off.


It’s also rare to see RIPT re-using designs, but that is the case with this Tardis/Union Jack t-shirt.


The Yetee give some love to a pair of Ninja Turtles characters that don’t often get a look in when it comes to t-shirts.


I’ve never seen the Slap Bet episode of How I Met Your Mother, but it’s cool the way that they bring it in during later episodes, I like the way that HIMYM has a lot more callbacks than most shows. TeeMinus24.


Random shirts on sale at OtherTees for the next 4 days.


I don’t really understand what this Crane Jackson thing is all about at 24tee today. I’ve found a strange Facebook page that might be a real theatre, and that Crane Jackson was a real person, but I still don’t quite get it. The mystery is quite fun though.


Today at TeeRaiders they’re celebrating a show called Once Upon a Time that’s only been on the air for a month on ABC in the US, I can’t decide if that’s brilliant or terrible.


GraphicLab have a shirt this week that combines Nintendo’s famous Power Glove with Thanos from the Marvel universe.


Really cool design from Loviu today.


2nd design has been made available from Tshirt Contest, this one is all about how delicious meat is.


Not really my kind of shirt at DBH today.


Someone on Instructables has made a fun looking shirt with LEDs in it.



Wrongwroks will be releasing this hoodie today, I really like the contrast detail on the zip and hood.


Springleap have teamed up with Marmite for a design competition.


PLNDR have more ridiculous prices in their bargain bin today.


Get $25 off with the coupon code 25X8TN at 80s Purple when you spend $80 or more (and there’s free shipping if you spend $99 or more).


Sturban Clothing have started selling Quilted Jackets by SeventySeven.


This guy called Jack got in touch to let me know about his site, and whilst the tees aren’t really my style, I thought you guys might like his stuff, and he seems very likeable in spite of the odd choice of creating a website that is 300 pixels wide.


Chris Kawagiwa, who recently had a few designs printed over at Might Fine, sent me an e-mail that pointed me towards a concept & process video for one of his steampink Star Wars designs. It’s really cool to watch it come together from pen & paper to the finished tee.




RadCakes have released three new shirts that I don’t particularly care for, perhaps you do.

hunger games t-shirt

Apparently today’s shirt at TeeFury is to do with a series of books called ‘Hunger Games’ that I’ve never read.


I like what Qwertee are going for here, but I think that you’d have to be a Linkin Park fan to want to buy it, and that might cut out a large section of their followers.

Daily Tees & News for November 8th

mars university futurama t-shirt

Nice to see more Futurama shirts becoming available, even if it’s just for a day at TeeFury.


Great collage shirt from Qwertee today, one for children of the 80s I think.


Another cool design from Tilteed, but of course it is also an old design, I’d love to know what’s happening there and why we haven’t seen new shirts for so long, hopefully this isn’t the beginning of the end for Tilteed.


Whilst I don’t entirely understand the meaning of the bird painting itself, I do like the artwork today at Shirt.Woot.


Quite a few of the RIPT commenters are chiming in to say that they won’t buy this shirt because it will be out of date in a year, fair point.


It’s pretty rare that you get a shirt that draws from Picasso and Star Wars, bravo The Yetee, bravo.


Nope. I’m going to need someone to explain the reference to me on this 24tee shirt.


Gotta say I’m not in love with the Mario artwork at TeeRaiders today, sorry.


Nice to see this design at Loviu again.


Shirt Punch are exploring that oft-neglected crossover of Doctor Who and Wizard of Oz today.


The straightforwardly named Tshirt Contest have opened their first contest with a call for entries of beer designs.


‘War Torn’ is the Shirt Of The Day at DBH.


Delorean Dashboard is the deal of the day at BustedTees. $11 instead of $20.


I don’t want to complain too much about something that’s a 2 year old issue, but I saw it again and it annoyed me again. Total Film published a list of 100 Star Wars t-shirts in 2009 that I feel is clearly heavily inspired by my list of 202 Star Wars t-shirts. That post took me the better part of 25 hours work, work that they haven’t acknowledged in their list (they have picked all the same shirts as I did, and in many cases they’re listed in the same order. I’m of no doubt that Total Film have earned money from that post (they have ads, and they’re on the first page of Google for the search ‘Star Wars t-shirts’), but all I want from them is acknowledgement that I did the research for their article, and an apology for using my work without permission. If any of you would like to leave a comment on their article or tweet them @totalfilm regarding the issue I’d appreciate it.


Mashable have a short list of “4 Essential Facebook Page Apps to Improve Communication With Fans” that I think will be of use to brand owners.


New shirt today from A Better Tomorrow.


Javaboi Industries have a Steve Jobs tribute shirt. Frankly, I don’t care for the shirt, it’s just not for me, but I can understand why people would look up to Steve Jobs, and it’s cool that Javaboi are donating to charity with the sales from the shirt, especially as they are a brand that has unfortunately had far too many experiences with cancer.


RedBubble artist Tom Trager has released the above ‘Dalek Pest Exterminations’ Doctor Who shirt for £15.99, which I’ve now added to the Doctor Who list.


You can get an extra 15% off at PLNDR with the coupon HUSH15 provided you spend $50+.


Use the coupon code TRIPLE11 to get 20% off your order at Karmaloop from now until midnight (EST) on November 11th.


I’ve opened up a couple of new advertising spaces for your perusal (footer & sidebar skyscraper left). Don’t worry, this isn’t yet more ads on HYA, I’ve converted the two ads that had Google AdSense on them to regular ads (that are backfilled with AdSense at the moment, confused?). They’re on a CPM basis, meaning you only pay for what you want and I’ve made it possible to buy just a couple of thousand pageviews at a time, meaning you can dip your toe in the water advertising on HYA for just a couple of dollars. This also means that we could have hundreds of people advertising on HYA, which I think would be pretty cool.


Unestablish has opened for business, they seem to have some pretty cool higher-end looking clothing.




Counter Balance Clothing (who I hadn’t heard of before) released a big new Fall collection a few days ago, with that many new shirts you guys must be able to find something you like in there.


Time for me to feel bad again, Monstros Apparel have been running a Kickstarter Project for the past month, and now that I finally get around to properly checking out their e-mail the Kickstarter has got 3 days to go and still needs about $2,000 to be funded. I know that HYA probably doesn’t have the readership to give this guy $2,000 but I think there are probably a few of you out there that would have pledged for one of his shirts.

Daily Tees & News Roundup for November 4th

pacman mario t-shirt

I like the concept but I’m not too into the style of the artwork in this Pcamn x Mario mashup tee at TeeFury today. It looks more like a comic (and a well illustrated one, let me be clear) than a t-shirt design.


Oooooh, political shirt from Qwertee today, very cool, very timely.


Another old shirt from Tilteed, I’d love to know when they’ll be dropping some new designs.


Nice colourway on today’s Stupidhurts.us robot t-shirt.


It’ll never last, they’re from two different worlds! Shirt.Woot.


I’m glad this has the word ‘Firefly’ written on it otherwise I’d have had to hunt out the reference on this RIPT tee.


I love Zoidberg, so I think that this Futurama tee at TeeMinus24 is pretty nifty.


I love lunch, it’s one of the few times in the day that I’m not staring at a screen. This shirt is referring to the film Wall Street, so I can only assume that 24tee are hoping to pick up sales from the 1%!


Another oldie from Loviu, cool though.


Aren’t we all always at the corner of time and space? Catch of the Day Tee.


Not getting the reference on today’s Shirt Punch design, is it something to do with Portal?


Time to add TeeBlitz to the daily roster. This $10 tee shop has got that fantastic astronaut-based design on sale for the weekend.


Urban Industry are offering free shipping on orders until November 18th to try and encourage early shoppers.As you can tell from the infographic, they’re also offering extended returns and reminding you that gift vouchers are a thing.


Use the coupon code SEPT to get 20% off your order at Enclothe until 11/11/11, who have just introduced a new hoodie and had a few restocks too.


BustedTees are bringing in daily deals, starting with their Honey Badger shirt being $12 until midnight (EST).


PLNDR have got some ridiculous deals going on, probably on stuff that you’ll regret buying, but still. Oh, and if you manage to spend $100 or more, use the coupon code 20BUCKZ to get $20 off your order.


Karmaloop‘s latest offer is: “This Week:Spend $75 get *free shipping, Spend $125 get 15% off + *free shipping, Spend $200 get 20% off + *free shipping, Spend $350 get 25% OFF+ *free shipping,
USE CODE: LEVEL25 *$8 off international shipping” I wonder if anyone has ever bought anything for full price at Karmaloop.


Buy 4 shirts and get 1 free at Spreadshirt this month.


Dephect are offering a free card wallet with all orders, and the cool part is that you get to choose which wallet you receive depending on the coupon code you use. From right to left in the picture, these are the coupons to use: CITYWALLET ODWALLET ICECREAM BUYRECORDS.


Concrete Rocket have expanded their product range with a couple of jackets.


New shirt from A Better Tomorrow.


Mental Floss have got shirts as low as $9.99 for people that like their funny tees with some smarts to go with them.


Storenvy have a guide to taking photos of small items for your store, which will be of limited use to people with just t-shirts in their store, but it’s a decent tutorial and I felt it was worth adding to the news roundup today.

panda astronaut t-shirt

Very nice Panda/astronaut t-shirt from TeeFury today.


Another oldie-but-goodie from Greg Abbott at Tilteed today, it’s a really lovely design.


Weren’t you always a little disappointed when you had to play as Luigi? Stupidhurts.us


Hahaha, silly owl. Shirt.Woot


Nice tribute to A Clockwork Orange at RIPT today.


If a single one of you gets the reference on this TeeMinus24 design I will be amazed.


Fairly creepy looking Doctor Who design at OtherTees today.


24tee bring us a classic Halloween design.


I didn’t like this Donald Duck shirt when Loviu first released it, and on the second viewing my opinion has not changed.


I have no clue what is going on in this Catch of the Day Tee shirt.


Nice Doctor Who design from Shirt Punch, I think it’s fair to say those guys have had a pretty decent first week.


I stumbled upon this fantastic tutorial by Natalie Jost detailing several ways that you can customize your Big Cartel store to give it features which you would usually expect to see in a standalone ecommerce solution.


Sturban are offering free delivery in the UK on all orders until the end of the month.


BustedTees have put all their fall releases on sale for $14 a piece until noon (EST) on October 31st.


Dephect are offering 25% off all their tees with the coupon code HALLOWEEN11 until November 3rd.


I’ve never heard of Kii Arens before, but their shirts are on Fab.com now, $19.50 down from $35, and they’re looking mighty fine.


Digital Gravel have knocked 50% off everything, which is pretty huge, all you have to do is use the coupon code THX2011, the infographic says 3 days, but it’s now more like two and a half.


T-Post, the Swedish t-shirt subscription service, are going to stop using a wholesale blank (I’m fairly sure they were using American Apparel) and produce their own shirts, and they want feedback from you to help make it ‘the best t-shirt the world has ever seen.’


That above is a relaunch teaser for PPRHRT, I was unaware that they were in need of a relaunch but there you go, like their Facebook page to keep up to date with their relaunch progress.


A reminder that Urban Industry‘s big Halloween sale is ongoing.


PLNDR are giving away a $250 gift pack from Breezy Excursion, who I’ve never heard of so I presume that means they’re popular.

free PLNDR credit

Over the past week I wasn’t able to give this competition the attention it deserved and that’s not fair on PLNDR since they are putting up $150 of store credit, so I have decided to extend the competition for another few days to make sure everyone that’s going to enter will enter. All you have to do is signup to PLNDR via the special link and send out a tweet. It will take a couple of minutes of your time and you’ve got a really good chance to win.

Please visit this page and check out the details to see how you can win $150 of store credit at PLNDR to spend on anything you want.

PLNDR competition

I have teamed up with PLNDR, the daily-deal site offering premium streetwear at up to 80% off, to give away $150 of PLNDR cash to spend on their site any way you choose!

Yes, that’s free clothing, just for sending out a tweet and signing up to PLNDR with this special link. You have to use the special link otherwise PLNDR won’t be able to track who has signed up because of this competition, so make sure you use this link otherwise your entry will not be counted. The tweet that you need to send out is the following:

I want to win $150 of @plndrmembers cash thanks to @hideyourarms! http://bit.ly/m7JBID Pls RT

I signed up to take a look at PLNDR and you know what? They have got some really good stuff on sale, and it’s so cheap that even I might buy something, and I almost never buy clothes. Usually when a site claims to have 80% off that is a very, very rare occurrence, but I have found a few 80% off items, and a lot of 77% off items (which is close enough), so these guys are the real deal (and they’re affiliated with Karmaloop, so you know they’re legit). I’m going to have to keep a closer eye on PLNDR and post about them more in the future because I’m really impressed with the goods available at prices that a too hard to pass up.

This competition is open for one week from today until Monday July 11th Friday July 15th* at midnight GMT, is limited to one entry per person, and can be entered by anyone living in a country that PLNDR ship to (list here), you can enter if you don’t live in those countries, but there isn’t much point since you wouldn’t be able to buy any of the clothes. Only PLNDR signups through this special link will count as an entry to this competition. This winner will be decided by PLNDR, their decision is final.

* Competition extended due to me not being able to give the competition the attention it deserved.
