review

1cons_qtee2Since my last hands-on review of QTee, they asked me to do another one (which obviously I agreed to immediately!) This time they offered me to review some of their custom printed Converse – and if you know me, you know they are my preferred shoe. Unlike other companies I have reviewed, QTee let me design and pick out the print for my Converse right from their website, which is their specialty. And guess what? You can do that too! Everything from tees, to bags, to shoes, to hats (and even underwear) is customizable and it is so fun to explore, trust me.

cons5_qtee2cons1Ordering, shipping, + packaging: I scrolled through the many designs they offer; there are so many to choose from, but once I saw those Galaxy Print ones I was done with my search. I took a bit of time messing with the colors and the design until I got the perfect starry shoe that I wanted. The interface was easy to use and the ordering process could not have gone more smoothly and they arrived at my front door in about 3 business days – now that’s quick especially for custom printed shoes! Once they arrived, I tore that box wide open to reveal a classic Converse shoe-box inside (which I promptly tore open as well…) I must not forget to add, my order came with a lovely discount code for future purchases, as well as a cool QTee logo sticker – I do enjoy those small touches.

cons8_qteecons9_qtee2The Reveal: Once I got my hands (and feet) on my new shoes, I could not have been happier! The print – bright, beautiful, clear, and just the way I wanted them. (Remember you can click the images to see the print up close and personal.) I could have chose more outrageous or vibrant colors, which would have been interesting as well, but I am a simple girl so I chose shades of blue for my galaxy. Converse are a wonderful shoe from their quality to their comfort and they never go out of style, so I really have no complaints… well perhaps one, but it is only a small one, as QTee only offers low-tops and I am a high-top fan myself – perhaps the high-tops will be available in the future, but until then I am enjoying my low-tops to no end!

closeupRecap: It’s pretty obvious I love my new Galaxy Chucks from QTee, and I am a big fan of this company now and forever. I have had several people compliment my shoes, they just stick out in the best way, and I don’t hesitate for one second to let them know they can order from QTee AND customize themselves! (And to get a customized pair of shoes for $69.95 is a pretty good deal to me.) Also, with that said, QTee was nice enough to provide a coupon code for all you HYA readers! Just enter the code: HideYourArms15 at checkout and it will take 15% off your entire order – thank you QTee!

QTee – Hands on Review + Coupon Code!

by Leah on April 7, 2015

qtee3_text

It feels really good to be reviewing on HYA again and what a better way to start than with California based QTee! They are not like any other brand I have reviewed – first of all, QTee let ME pick out what tees I wanted to review and once I was on their site, I understood why… everything is customizable and they wanted me to have the full experience! You can pick from over 100 graphics – once you have chosen, you not only can pick what type of apparel you want it printed on, but you can also select colors for several elements of the graphic. Once I got a hang of the interface, I was playing around with several designs and having a lot of fun with it to be honest. (There is even a video on how to customize!)

A lot of QTee’s designs are text driven, but they also have a nice amount of layered and photo based designs, as well as ones with patterns, pocket designs, and simple graphics. So with that said, I decided to pick a patterned one and a text based one just to get an idea how both would turn out. How did I like them? Very much!

Ordering, shipping, + packaging: QTee promptly sent me a ‘thank you for your order’ email, and shortly after that they sent out tracking info, so no worries there. From start to finish, it did take about a week for each tee to get to me. They arrived in a standard t-shirt mailer – the white, tough plastic one – which QTee fancied up with a large, di-cut logo sticker (and FYI – it could be peeled off if you wanted to keep it!) With the t-shirts came a nice postcard with a discount code, as well as a vibrant logo sticker. Each t-shirt was wrapped in tissue paper and then inserted into a clear, plastic sleeve; so all in all the packaging was very professional, yet standard.

qtee_sticker

Unwrapping: As I pulled each t-shirt out from their packaging, my first reaction is to always feel them from top to bottom of course, and each tee was VERY soft to the touch and had a clean, freshly printed smell. Next I ran my hand over the print/ink and it was soft as well, not very thick or stiff and definitely printed evenly. I assumed they were DTG (direct to garment) printed, but I did not want to give you readers the wrong info, so I contacted QTee from their Website asking this, not expecting a reply for a day or so, but I got a reply almost instantly (which, come on, that is some great customer service) and my assumption was right, they print DTG. Once unwrapped, I saw each t-shirt had a “YOU’RE CUTE” logo tag attached, which made me smile – I adore details like that.

qtee_tag

Now for the shirts themselves: The heather-gray, floral t-shirt is titled Freshly Cut Flowers and I chose a Hi-Lo Muscle Tank for this one since I have not owned something like that before! QTee describes it well, “This is our version of the perfect muscle tank made more flattering for the feminine figure. High side slits and oversize underarm openings.” The text based tee Life is Better in the Water, is printed on an Oversized Boyfriend Tee, “Our Oversized Boyfriend Tee has a loose fit, more coverage on the shoulders and overall relaxed, boyfriend style fit. Warning: Your boyfriend may get jealous. This style fits 1 to 2 sizes bigger.” Now silly me wants to complain that my tees fit a little too large to my liking, BUT silly me also did not read the descriptions or the size charts that were readily available – so that is totally my fault! I thought size Small would do the trick, but if I would have explored the description I would have chosen the XS option for both, so keep that in mind when you order. Each tee is thin, as you can see in the images, the white tee especially is a bit see-through, but I tend to like that especially when you wear a bikini or possibly a bandeaux underneath. (They are perfect for the beach too, hence why my photographer, Tabitha Payne, and I had a seaside photoshoot!) They also had that worn-in feeling which to me is the best – being a 52% cotton / 48% modal which gives them that comfortable feeling, but also don’t overlook the American Apparel tri-blends available as well (a personal favorite).

qtee2_floralqtee3_floralqtee4_floralqtee2_textqtee5_textqtee7_text

Recap: Overall, I am happy with my QTee purchases – print quality, t-shirt quality, customer service, and website interface are all top notch! They are not too pricey, especially since you get to customize your design – tees ranging from about $19.95 to $24.95. I know this brand is marketed to females, but any guys reading this should consider this a good place to buy the lady in your life a cool, customized t-shirt – you can say, “Hey, I designed it myself too!” Also, I know they are called QTEE, but tees are not the only thing they offer; there are sweatshirts, work-out apparel, bags, hats, Converse shoes, even underwear and collaborations as well. One more thing, QTee was nice enough to provide a coupon code for all you HYA readers! Just enter the code: HideYourArms15 at checkout and it will take 15% off your entire order – so needless to say, QTee is definitely worth checking out!

Thanks for reading,
Leah

Hands-On Review: Do You Remember Tees

by billpyle on July 7, 2013

dyr_01

Do You Remember Tees is a clothing brand that focuses on tees that “transport you back to the center of the action” by featuring logos of past bars, casinos, clubs, and dot-coms. They were nice enough to send me one of their BARd’O tees to review.

Unfortunately, my initial impression when I received my package was not a good one. The shirt was shipped in a plain, vinyl mailer, which isn’t automatically a bad thing. Custom branded packaging is always a nice touch but its not something every brand has to use. My problem with the packaging was that it was basically rolled up into a ball resulting in the shirt being pretty wrinkled. Since its only a t-shirt, its an easy fix to unwrinkle it, but like I said, it doesn’t leave a great first impression.

dyr_02

As for the shirt itself, they have removed the labels so I don’t know what brand it is printed on, but their site says it is a 100% combed cotton tee. It feels pretty comfortable to wear. I’d probably compare it to an American Apparel tee. The design isn’t really my thing though, and the print quality doesn’t seem great either. The print is oddly fuzzy, as if they were working with a low res file or their printer couldn’t reproduce the intended print. It is hard to tell if this was done by design or not, but the images on their site look a lot more crisp than the shirt I received. That also confirms to me that the images on their site are just mock ups and not actual product shots. That is always disappointing to see. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it is deceptive as the mock ups are pretty close to the actual product, but it is also not giving a totally accurate representation as to what a potential customer is actually getting when they make a purchase.

BARdO_1_1024x1024

All that said though, the design, as well as their others, does fit in with the theme of the brand pretty well, even if that theme doesn’t exactly appeal to me. The shirt is a bit pricey though at $30. I don’t know anything about the inner workings of their brand, but $30 seems steep for a one color print.

Overall, I’d have to say I wasn’t exactly impressed with this shirt. From the bad packaging, to the fuzzy print, to the expensiveness, there are just too many problems to recommend Do You Remember Tees. Luckily enough though these problems shouldn’t be too hard to fix. So hopefully they will keep than in mind for the future.

You can pick up this shirt and a variety of others on their site at http://www.doyouremembertees.com.

Liquid Screen Design Hands On Review

by AndyRocksBluu on April 22, 2013

Hey everyone, today I will be doing a hands on review with Liquid Screen Designs and their upcoming Kick Starer project. Usually when I do my reviews I like to break them down into different categories but that approach wouldn’t  be fair.  Instead, I will explain what LSD is doing and give my 2 cents on the project and what I thought overall.

The Idea:

Liquid Screen Design has figured out a way to make t-shirts change color when ever they come in contact with different temperatures.  Here’s an example:

DSC_0304

Here is a blue Liquid Screen Design T-shirt

DSC_0305

Here’s me putting a hot iron on a Liquid Screen Design t-shirt

DSC_0306

And Ta-da! The t-shirt is now white in the area I applied the hot iron. Pretty amazing right!

DSC_0307

And here’s a better view.

My Two Cents:

I personally think this is a pretty cool idea. I think this will be a home run if they were able to figure out a cost effective way to make these shirts and sell them as blanks. I know I would pick up a few to print my Bluu Dreams designs for the summer time. Who knows, this idea can just be a stepping stone into other clothing materials but as it stands now its a pretty cool idea.

Overall: 4.0-5.0

The shirt that I received from LSD was a anvil 100% cotton t-shirt. For those who don’t know Anvil makes pretty decent blanks but not as soft American Apparel (but we have been told the process will work on an AA tee too). As far as the idea I think its great and I’m curious to see how far the good people at Liquid Screen Designs are able to take this idea. I think there could be a really big market in selling the shirts to wholesaler companies. If you like what you see and you want to support Liquid Screen Design Kick Starter program just go here and back this project.  I know I will!

Hands-on Review: Wake.Live

by billpyle on April 17, 2013

wl01

Wake.Live is an independent brand that is focused on solid, ethically made goods. The fine folks behind the brand were kind enough to send me one of their Not Alone tees to review, which is pretty exciting as this is my first review. From a quick look at their site, its obvious they have a real passion for what they do, which is something I always appreciate.

I was impressed with their work before I even opened the package. It is always nice to see brands go the extra mile with custom packaging, even if its as simple as printing their logo on the mailer. Included with the shirt were a handful of stickers and buttons. Extras like that are a nice touch as well, even if I generally never make use of them.

wl03

As for the shirt itself, I definitely enjoyed it. The design is executed well, although the concept doesn’t really make a lot of sense to me. It feels like its a lot of popular design elements that are combined into one composition. Especially the crown as it almost feels like an afterthought when the designer felt the top was too empty. Nothing inherently wrong with doing that, I just like when designs are a little more cohesive. The print and shirt itself are top notch though. The print is done with soft, water based inks which I vastly prefer to heavy, plastisol prints. They have a custom label printed in the shirt, which I always enjoy even if this particular one is a bit hard to read, so its hard to tell what brand they used, but the description on their site says its a 50/50 poly-cotton tee, which are very comfortable. The shirt also features a custom hem tag at the bottom which features the brand name. Another nice, subtle touch.

wl02

Overall I’d say I am definitely impressed with what I’ve seen from Wake.Live. They seem to really care about their product, which shows through their attention to detail in everything from their packaging to their website. I feel safe to say that if you purchased a shirt or two from them, you would be very satisfied.

wl04

You can pick up this shirt on their site for $24. They were kind enough to include a 10% off code with the package, so make sure to use the code “Birth” when placing an order.

Hands-on Review: 8BIT t-shirts

by Chris_S on April 14, 2013

Post image for Hands-on Review: 8BIT t-shirts

Retro has become a huge niche market in almost all areas – t-shirts included. And one t-shirt company out of Ireland are taking advantage of that rise in popularity of all things retro.

8BIT has a collection of carefully designed tees based on the glory days of retro gaming. The 8-bit era produced some of the best games and established the modern-day industry as it stands now. Their limited edition run of shirts (snap them up quick: there are only four designs, and each design only has 100 or 125 versions) appeal to the kind of person who lived through the 8-bit era the first time round, and now wants to show their love for their childhood with a beautifully crafted piece of clothing.

That care in the end product comes as soon as you receive the package. Your tee is encased in a brilliant white box, sturdy enough to keep the quarry inside clean and tidy but not too heavy.

And once you open the box, and take aside the tissue paper and the cool postcard with an old-school Gameboy on a washed out beach, you realise that the shirt inside is pretty great, too. The design I received was ‘001 – Grace’ (€30) which is a limited print run of 125 (mine was #19).

8bit3

It’s a luscious representation of the kind of huge sprites from the classic era of 8-bit games that you grew up with; this footballer performing an overhead kick could have been ripped right out of something like Amiga’s Sensible Soccer franchise.

The quality is great, as you’d expect from a company so invested in producing the great packaging they do. The tiny touches such as a nicely presented package are one of the best ways to separate the wheat from the chaff in an industry where the ability to enter it is becoming ever lower. Those who take pride in their work will make sure to present it neatly.

The tee is a thick, soft one, and it holds up well in a wash. Overall, if the bright lights of the 1980s and early 90s gaming world is your thing, you should head on over to 8BIT and grab yourself a tee.

Electric MVMT Light-Up Hoodie Review

by Amy_F on February 18, 2013

I’ve never been more excited upon receiving an email to do a review of a light-up hoodie.  Electric MVMT has designed an original glow-in-the-dark, light-up hoodie in several color schemes.  I received my package from them very fast and got to playing around with it this weekend.

 Electric-MVMT-1

At first I wasn’t sure what to think about how this thing was even going to operate.  Upon opening the package, which arrived in a simple brown box with the product packaged in a clear bag inside, I unzipped the sweatshirt to find a battery pack inserted in an inside small Velcro pocket.  I instantaneously started laughing and the only thought that came to mind was, “wow, I’m totally gonna get electrocuted if I wear this in the rain.”

Electric-MVMT-2

The wires are strategically connected from the battery pack to the colored light-up tubing that runs along the length of the zipper into the lining of the hood.  It’s quite nifty (yes I totally just said, nifty) how it all is intertwined, sewn inside and connected.  Please note though that the batteries are NOT included.  The sweatshirt requires 2 Double A batteries (AA).

Electric-MVMT-3

The hoodie I received was perfect; white with pink light-up tubing.  The battery pack inside has 1 button on it, as initially I figured it was one click on, one click off.  To my surprise, however it was not like that at all!  It was 1 click for on, the second click makes the light-up tubing blink slowly AND THEN, a third click will make you feel like you’re at a rave.  The light-up tubing repeatedly blinks very fast and the fourth and final click will turn the lights off.

Electric-MVMT-4

The sweatshirt is definitely high-quality, as Electric MVMT is selling them for originally $90.00 on their website (currently they’re on sale for $65.00).  They come in Black with Blue Illumination, Black with Pink Illumination, White with Blue Illumination and White with Pink Illumination.  I have to say the truth, I kind of want each color combo!

Electric-MVMT-5

They’ve taken the time to not only create a glow-in-the-dark, light-up design that is unique and not really seen before, but they’ve also given you the quality of a soft, nice fitting sweatshirt, a custom sewn-in label and a cute little embroidered design on the sleeve of the hoodie which is a circle with 3 lines in the middle – which just happens to be their logo.

Electric-MVMT-6

I have to say that Electric MVMT really took the time to think out and design a product that is not only creative and most definitely unique, but is also comfortable, stylish and well put together.  They didn’t skimp on any area of the product itself and that’s hard to find these days.  A lot of companies figure if they’re putting the money into one aspect of the design (say the light-up technology Electric MVMT has) then why bother with a custom label or even add the additional embroidered logo.  Overall they’ve done a great job with this sweatshirt and I would recommend anyone to shop with them!

Electric-MVMT-7

Now, I will not say for sure whether or not the wired technology in the lining is dangerous at all in certain weather conditions, though my Dad has assured me that I will not get electrocuted (lol).  The only thing about the sweatshirt is it’s slightly delicate or at least I feel so to handle with the battery pack in the Velcro pocket.  It’s behind the normal sweatshirt pocket so not really in the way but there’s extra wire hanging out that could possibly snag on something especially if that hoodie is left unzipped when worn.  I don’t find this to be a huge problem or become any sort of disaster if it did snag on something but I’d worry it might mess up the ability to light the sweatshirt up if it did catch.

Electric-MVMT-8

There is one final thing that leaves me wondering about this product and that’s that there are no washing instructions.  I mean, not that I’m a slob, but you’ve given me a white hoodie here, what if I need to wash it – clearly I cannot throw this thing in the washing machine.  I didn’t expect a tag to have washing instructions because I felt they’ve paid a lot of close attention to detail already, however a print out in the package might have been nice, even to simply state ‘hand-wash’ or perhaps maybe I need to unhook something before doing so.  I’m guessing it’s going to be just a spot treatment type process and assuming they don’t expect you to wear this out every day (though it’d be a lot of fun to) to where you’d dirty it so much, but clothes do need to be washed at some point in time.  But overall, aside from my conscious thoughts on how I’d get this clean IF I did indeed dirty it, I really love this damn thing and I had an impromptu photo-shoot in the dark with my Mom wearing the hoodie AND I even got it on the dog.

Electric-MVMT-9

Electric MVMT does not currently sell any other products, but it looks as if they plan on including some accessories in the near future.  They are in several retail stores that you can find on their website and they explain that their hoodies have you covered for every occasion from, “Out at the club, on a bike, hitting the bars, or recovering from a rough night with an early morning jog.”  Hey, think of it this way, now people don’t have to wear those goofy reflector vests when they go for a run at night, just hit up Electric MVMT for a nice glow-in-the-dark, light-up hoodie!  You’ve heard it here first – I think they should make some glow-in-the-dark animal clothing next. Just saying!

Electric-MVMT-10

Electric MVMT, “the best thing to happen to clothing since the invention of the button.”  Check them out on Facebook and on their Website while the hoodies are still on sale!  I’ll definitely be heading back to pick up a few more for myself too!

Effing Gear Hands on Review

by AndyRocksBluu on January 21, 2013

DSC_0564 copy

Hey everyone, its AndyRocksBluu again and I have a new review with the good people of Effing Gear. I’m not going to lie, when I first saw this clothing line I thought to myself “Is that a middle finger and a bird as a logo? Nope I think I’ll pass”. However, after getting my package and really dissecting what Effing Gear brings to the table, I have to say I’m pretty impressed. Dive In below and check out my Effing Review.

DSC_0559 copy

Design: 3.0-5.0

The two tees I received were pretty cool. One design was a logo tee and the other was an Eff Sandy relief tee.  Both designs are simple and clean designs that had textures to the image to give it an old tattered feel.

Price: Average/High

If you’re going to get an Effing Gear t-shirt it’s going to run about 26 bucks. For some people this might be a little high but in my opinion it’s about average. While I was looking over their logo tee I found plenty of added details ranging from hem tags, hang tags, and leather bracelets.

DSC_0568 copy

DSC_0572 copy

Quality: 4.0-5.0

This is where Effing Gear really shines. Their clothes are soooooo comfortable it’s not even funny. Once I put on my Eff t-shirt it didn’t come off until the end of the day. I definitely give them two thumbs up in the quality department.

Presentation: 4.0-5.0

I wasn’t sold on the concept but the presentation really won me over. Each shirt comes with an Effing hang tag and leather bracelet. I really wish I received a little note that the leather string was a bracelet because I almost threw it in the garbage. Luckily for me I found out what it was when I visited the website. (the bracelet is a nice touch.) PS the tag line in the washing instructions “put some Effing clothes on” is the icing on the cake.

DSC_0574 copy

Conclusion:

If you like what you see and you don’t mind wearing clothes with a hand flipping the bird, then Effing gear might be for you. You can check out the site here. http://www.effinggear.com/

Post image for T-shirt Review for Tee-a-Day Site – ShirtPunch!

It has been a while, but I am continuing on my reviews of the Tee-A-Day sites, this time with ShirtPunch! They offer a tee every 24 hours and each shirt begins it’s sale time at midnight EST – Eastern Standard Time. If you live in California, for example, it would change at 9pm. Living in the UK? The new tee goes live at 5am for you! I received my tees in a normal mailer, they were wrapped nicely in plastic inside the mailer, but what made it stand out was the Shirtpunch logo boldly presented on the front – adds a nice “punch” to the bag, don’t you think?

First up for review is an interesting tee and it took me a bit of curious questioning to understand the reference, but now that I understand it, I really like it! If you’re like me and not knowledgeable of classic video/computer games, then you might need some explanation. This tee is called A Better Tomorrow by Bob Mosquito and the t-shirt is essentially a cereal box design (probably figured that already), but what you might not know is it is also referring to Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle; a point-and-click 2D adventure game released on floppy disc or CDROM in 1993, wow I haven’t seen a floppy disc in ages. Well in the game the characters attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle (a sentient, disembodied tentacle) from taking over the world, sounds fun! I like that this reference is so obscure, yet the design is fun and interesting enough for a girl like me to enjoy.

This tee is actually printed on a Men’s Medium Black Gildan Softstyle and it obviously fits a lot larger than what I am used to. I still like to wear it though, it’s not uncomfortably too big, so why not? Print of A Better Tomorrow (and Scare-A-Lot, that tee’s next) are very good being as ShirtPunch prints using silk screening which always catches my eye for being a smooth and quality print. Not only that, but what I really like to see in a t-shirt company is a big print, and these prints are big! My only critique would be the tags – they are the original Gildan tags, and it would be nice to see a custom Shirtpunch sewn on tag or maybe a printed tag directly on the fabric.

I have a tee here a lot of you zombie fans would love, Scare-A-Lot by Truffleshuffle. It’s basically Care Bears in zombie land with a toxic rainbow, deadly little stars and hearts, and hideously cute bears staggering throughout the t-shirt. I especially love the blood (or ooze) flowing out of the one bear’s belly and the exposed ribcage on the other one – does add a bit of gruesomeness to the design! I am intrigued by the sweet, cheerful Care Bears that have been zombiefied; I like the juxtaposition.

This tee is printed on a Women’s Medium Black Gildan Softstyle which if given a Gildan, the Softstyle are the best for what they offer in my opinion. The fit is very good being the right length for me, feels good, and isn’t too tight. I don’t usually prefer this type of blank, but it is not a bad one in any means. (A really nice size chart is available for a more detailed description.) Shirtpunch also offers a variety of styles of apparel to get the design printed on – from tees to hoodies, as well as other things like posters, stickers, and buttons!

Overall Shirtpunch didn’t disappoint at all, they put out really nice quality tees, especially for only $10 a pop. Thanks to Jon (Buzatron) and all the folks at Shirtpunch for the opportunity to give a review of their tees. Thanks for reading!

Twin Serpents – T-shirt Review

by Mr Four Fingers on January 14, 2013

TWIN SERPENTS Iridescent messenger

Not too long ago clothing brand Twin Serpents posted an image on their Facebook page of some Black Mamba’s asking what makes snakes so scary. Before you answer let it be known that a black mamba has a reputation for being aggressive. Oh and they are highly venomous and the fastest snakes in the world.

Those who left a comment had their names entered into a random raffle and hey presto I got myself an awesome t-shirt. What made it even better for me was that a couple of weeks previously I let the guys at Twin Serpents know about a small post I created for them on Skull Appreciation Society about this very t-shirt.

Yanagida Hands On Review

by AndyRocksBluu on November 10, 2012

Hey everyone it’s AndyRocksBluu and I’m very excited to bring you a hands on review on a new clothing brand based out of California called Yanagida. Yanagida better known as YGDA was started as a custom label/trim company and decided to branch out to making their own brand. YGDA have worked with Diamond, Rocksmith, Dope Couture, and tons of other brands helping with their branding, trim and accessories. In case you were wondering YGDA stands for killer whale and has the tag line “top of the food chain”. If you like what you hear so far then Dive into my full review.

Design 3.5 out of 5.0

I like the two designs that Yanagida brings to the table. Both T-shirts are simple and clean graphics. However as much as I like these designs there really is nothing special about it. My favorite T-shirt out of the two happens to be the YGDA logo tee.

Price $32- $38 (High End)

I know the price tag might turn some people away but YGDA definitely goes through hoops to prove that their product is worth the price. YGDA did an amazing job of adding eye-catching details to their products. However you can get a full explanation in the presentation category.

P.S. when I got my package it came with a handful of buttons and YGDA logo key chains. Trust me….You want the key chains.

Quality 4.5 out of 5.0

I’m proud to say that YGDA did a fantastic job in the Quality Category. Both t-shirt’s felt buttery soft and fit me like a glove. Another thing I’m happy to see on these t-shirt’s are woven neck tags. In my personal opinion, I always feel that woven neck tags make a brand look more established.

Presentation 4.5 out of 5.0

YGDA hands down blew me away when it came to the category of Presentation. Each t-shirt came with three hem tags that explained what YGDA stood for and the date the company was started: this added another level of branding to the t-shirts. The good people at YGDA also added cool hangtags and limited YGDA coins that you can collect and trade in for rare limited YGDA pieces!! I personally thought that was a nice touch. This small attention to detail really separates them from the dozens of clothing lines out there.

Overall 4.0 out of 5.0 – Great

Yanagida is a solid brand with a very bright future. I can’t wait to see what they release! You check them out on

Post image for The Yetee: Today’s Tee For Your Torso – Hands on T-shirt Review!

Two tees for me! Sorry for being especially excited, but I received some great tees from The Yetee, and I know you wouldn’t blame me for being even more cheerful than usual after you see the tees I get to wear. For this review, Andy went ahead and ordered from The Yetee’s grab-bag, (grab-bag meaning random tees) for me to review. The guys over at The Yetee are mind-readers, or maybe I am just really lucky, because I got two t-shirts that I have always wanted from them, but missed when they were printed a little while ago.

Let me back up a bit, are you familiar with The Yetee? Well you really should become acquainted soon if you aren’t. They are a tee-a-day site which basically says it all; they showcase a new tee daily and once that time is over (and in The Yetee’s case, it’s 24 hours most cycles, though sometimes 48 hours depending on the shirt), then after the timer runs out, the tee is gone forever. The Yetee has come a long way since they first launched, which I can’t believe was only a little over a year ago, but their success doesn’t come as much of a surprise since it’s run and owned by two dedicated artists, Glen O’Neill and Mike Mancuso, which needless to say, both have a great passion for tees. It’s also safe to say that The Yetee is a generous crew as they have been involved and hosted various fundraisers for charities throughout their time as a business, and we all can’t help but admire and applaud that.

My tees were nicely packed in a normal mailer, everything printed clearly, and even the cute Yetee mascot placed sweetly on the shipping label. I would love to see a custom printed mailer with their mascot on it somewhere, that would be an excellent touch. Inside, tucked in with my tees, were several stickers, and cute ones at that! The illustrations are based on The Yetee’s mascot – the pretty Yetee lady by Megan Lara and the cool, growling Yetee face by WinterArtwork, both being designers that are dominating the t-shirt world.

Speaking of Megan Lara, this one titled Do What You Dream was designed by her and is inspired by one of my most loved childhood films, The NeverEnding Story. As you can see, it’s completely filled with characters from the film and the art is just gorgeous, simple as that. I am especially drawn to the composition, as well as the astounding glow of Falcor above the Empress – this t-shirt is a dream to those who know and love this story.

This shirt is printed on a women’s small Gildan Softstyle, which I mentioned in my previous review, tends to be a little short for me (and, sadly, a little too tight, ugh.) I really need to remember to order a medium when it comes to Gildan! I am not criticizing this blank, rather I actually really like the softness of the Softstyle as it’s name gives away, but I like tees to fit a little loose rather than being really form-fitting.

The next tee is a good one on many levels. 1.) It’s The Yetee’s 100th design to be printed, which makes it special to me. 2.) It also features the one and only, Yetee, the mascot and logo of this company. AND 3.) Yetee is repeated on this tee and in so many different pop-culturey ways, I can’t pick a favorite! Actually, I lied, I love the Chewbacca Yetee the best…

Unlike the other tee, this one is printed on a women’s small Tultex Fine Jersey blank. It fits nicely as well, but seems to feel a little thicker than the Gildan Softstyle, as well as a little larger and longer, so I like the fit of this one a little more. I also like how the sleeves are longer on the Tultex – I prefer them to the normal capped sleeves that most girly fitted tees have. The Yetee also prints using heathered tees on occasion, which are of a poly blend – so it seems to me that they print on several types depending on the design and availability.

As for print, both of the tees are spot on. The Do What You Dream feels especially smooth and soft, and when you look at it up close it’s incredibly clean, obviously screen printed and all proudly printed at Threadbird! The only thing that I miss when examining everything, is the possibility of a custom printed tag or sewn on tag – either one would have really grabbed my attention. Even The Yetee logo printed subtly somewhere would be a great addition to the tee as a whole.

Thank you Glen and Mike over at The Yetee for sending me tees to be reviewed, though you had no idea I was going to, but don’t fret, you won me over with your quality and branding, that’s for sure! And as always, thanks to everyone for reading!

Review: Awake and Dressed

by Chris_S on October 26, 2012

Post image for Review: Awake and Dressed

Awake and Dressed is a motto for my life. I’m not someone who likes to faff about in the morning, lying in bed. I have to be up and about fairly quickly, otherwise the day’s not worth counting.

My Old Dutch (£29.99) is the sort of design typical of Awake and Dressed. It’s becoming increasingly fashionable, and (I mean this as a compliment rather than an insult) is the sort of thing you’d see in a branch of Triple S, or in a club on a weekend.

The design’s pretty great – and you’ve got to hand it to Jonny Wolf, because the whole thing is deliciously packaged. The print quality of the design is razor sharp, and has blended in with the shirt fabric brilliantly. This isn’t one of those designs that feels like it’s slathered on the shirt and is so thick that it artificially shapes it in perfect straight angles. The whole shirt is supple and giving.

In fact, it’s the shirt quality I want to talk about. I’ve got a lot of tees in my cupboard, and this one is – to my mind – the smoothest wear I’ve had. It’s so soft! I haven’t been able to put it to the test with several washes to see if that changes things, but certainly on first wear it’s like a second skin. Really, the only thing I can fault is the price – at nearly £30 it’s a little steep for my tastes, but then again maybe I’m just thrifty. Plus when you wear it you begin to realise that you’re paying for a premium product, not just an overinflated price tag.

These are the sort of t-shirts that people want to be seen in these days; they’re very fashionable. And I haven’t seen many brands doing it better than Awake and Dressed.

(Costliness = £29.99)

Yonil – Review

by Mr Four Fingers on October 22, 2012

Yonil Review

Not so long ago Andy posted about Yonil and his massive 40% discount and upon seeing some of his designs I definitely had to check them out. As it happens Yonil is one seriously talented person and the discount made the purchase a no brainer. These are designs I would buy regardless of the discount. I actually first saw one of his designs without the name sinking in with one of his designs for Design By Humans called We Did This To Ourselves, one of the most interesting design placements on a  t-shirt I have seen. It was only after reading another post on Yonil by Andy that I found out that this design was actually a winner in a competition in DBH that saw him win 10K! [click to continue…]

Post image for Another Fine Tee: Tee Time Once Every 72 Hours – Hands On T-shirt Review!

Hello all you HYA readers, it’s me, Leah! Remember or have you forgotten about me? I know it’s been awhile since I posted last, but I am back and hoping I can make up for lost time. So, I did a blog a little while ago about Another Fine Tee and as a thank-you, they were kind enough to send me a t-shirt (their very first print to be exact), so of course I jumped at the chance to review it! Another Fine Tee is one of those “tee-a-day” sites that we all love so much and they are indeed a very new company opening  just this Summer. They have already shown to be very promising displaying a range of pop-culture tees, as well as some pop-culture with more of an artsy quality about them. Another Fine Tee does not necessarily offer a “tee-a-day”, but close enough, as they offer one original, limited edition t-shirt design once every 72 hours! Also, as we know with all sites like this, once the time is up, you can no longer purchase it on their site.

Like I mentioned earlier, I received Another Fine Tee’s very first print on their site, Big Blue Skies designed by the great J3concepts who makes some incredible tees and this one is no different. There are a couple reasons why I really admire this design – one obvious reason being that I am a big fan of the show Breaking Bad that this shirt is inspired by. The other less obvious reason that I like this one, is not only is it a pop-culture tee, but it also incorporates artsy-elements in the style of the lines and in the overall mood of the design. One last thing, though I am pretty sure not that many people would agree with me, but the fact that J3 decided to leave out text makes it even more of a success in my eyes.

Another Fine Tee prints their designs on 100% cotton, and also on 50/50 blend – it all depends on the design and the day. The tee that I was given is a 100% cotton blank (and actually, I am not sure what brand the blank is, but it is comparable to the Gildan Softstyle), but I must say it’s a bit shorter in length than I am used to. The overall fit is a bit tight in places, but it feels comfortable. I think their tees run a bit small and I would have been better to have chosen a women’s medium instead of small – just keep that in mind when you purchase in the future.

As for the print, I can tell it’s screen-printed by it’s soft ink that seems to have blended in very nicely with the fabric of the tee and even after a few washes (and laying flat to dry), it’s still maintaining it’s quality. The size of the print could have been a little bigger to utilize the t-shirt canvas, in my opinion, but it’s not a deal breaker at all – I just prefer my prints larger. I do appreciate the custom printed tag most of all from Another Fine Tee; their logo is cute, fun, and professional and if you know me, then you know I gravitate to these surprising little details!

Thanks again to Another Fine Tee for giving me the opportunity to review their brand and their tee and of course, thanks to everyone out there for reading!

Review: Tee Pony has a terrible name, good shirts

by Chris_S on October 14, 2012

Post image for Review: Tee Pony has a terrible name, good shirts

Andy already mentioned Tee Pony a little while back and had nice things to say about their designs – so naturally, we decided here at HYA to delve a little deeper and get hands-on with a review.

Tim from Tee Pony sent along release 014 – Gorilla for me to wrestle with, along with a nice little note, a business card and a handy carrying bag for the whole package. On a purely decorative note, it’s great to see tee brands putting this much effort into the presentation of their work. As Tee Pony say on their site, they’re a boutique, limited-run (500 pieces a pop) tee company and it’s good to have a little theatre introduced into the product. You want to have the anticipation of unwrapping the shirt. It makes it much of a bigger deal – and so the little touches add to the excitement.

The tee is a super soft stock, and the printing is great. The reason why I’m so keen on this design is that it’s one of the least outlandish on the site. Andy’s already made his views clear on a lot of the Tee Pony designs: the good, original ones are great; the lesser ones which rely on pop culture references kind of bring the brand down.

That’s a note that really can be carried over to other tee companies – and actually, to almost any company or brand there is. You don’t want your work to date – especially if customers are paying £29 for an exclusive tee. You want a lot of wear out of it, and you want to be able to return to it in five years time and not have it look dated (try wearing a Budweiser ‘Whassssup?’ t-shirt today without being laughed out of a club. The way fashion works you could stuff it at the back of a drawer for another five years and it becomes ironically retro, but still…)

In response to Tim from Tee Pony’s note, I am enjoying the tee. In fact, it’s had two wears (and a wash each time, thanks!) in the first week of owning it, and I’ve had a couple of positive comments about it. These guys are putting out a great product and are a brill new addition to the tee world. Keep checking back with them for their new designs each week: the current bike-based one looks superb.

Hands on review: One Thousand Shirts

by Ben_P on October 2, 2012

Onethousandshirts, perhaps one day they will reach their name and literally sell thousands of shirts. Who knows? They’re certainly off to a very good start though.

It was perfect timing receiving the T-Shirt ‘Heart of the sunrise’ because I had just come back off Holiday dreading returning to normality, so this certainly put a little spring in my step. Lovingly packaged in tissue paper with brown string (well slightly thicker than string), a classic parcel really. That’s something I really like in a brand, the care and thought of their packaging so they certainly get the thumbs up from me!


On to the T-Shirt, it’s a very lovely design of presumably a bison with a bustling city upon it’s back. I cannot fault the actual design of the image because it really is lovely, my favourite of the 3 shirts they sell so I’m very lucky and glad that they sent me this one! The price is £20 which is reasonable considering it’s printed upon earth positive shirts by continental clothing, which are climate neutral (Yay! Not damaging the environment!), the print is hand done by Max Bondi and Oliver Barrett who run the company so it’s nice to know it’s all done in house. I really like it when they say who prints the garments even if it’s not personally done by them as you can (if you’re particularly interested) research about the companies who print them and their environmental policies for instance. It’s a nice two colour print which I can’t really fault, no visible cracking unless you pull slightly on the garment. The only downside I’d say to this tee is that the colours they chose I feel don’t give justice to the wonderful design, there isn’t enough contrast and overall it’s too dark. I could be wrong but I feel that it would do better with a higher contrast, maybe it’s down to personal preference but you can decide for yourselves in the photos I’ve taken.

We are committed to making high quality shirts and aim for the highest environmental and ethical standards in the suppliers we use.

I think what is fantastic is that these guys really have thought about the environment when producing their products, from the packaging to the inks they use. More information can be found on their website, I think it’s really nice that they give all this information because it’s nice to know for consumers that they’re contributing to people who really take a passion in their designs and how they affect the world. If that means paying a little bit more than you might for other brands I think it”s well worth it. Kudos to them!

These guys have two other t-shirts which are up for sale, they’re also very nice but less to my taste so I’m very lucky that they sent me the one I preferred (by pure luck!) as I didn’t have to think hard for nice complimentary things to say about it. It’s nice to also see that these guys are from London and doing us Brits proud! Perhaps I’ll have to take a trip there to visit their workshop, if they’d be so kind as to have me. Always nice to see behind the scenes. Anyway enough chit-chat you can see the photos, check out the website and decide for yourself but these guys are certainly worth supporting and should be on your radar for future releases.

Post image for Let’s Get Weird! Let’s Get Weird! Let’s Get Weird! – Hands On T-shirt Review for LTDEX!

Another tee has arrived, this time from LTDEX! I did my “Big Leah Smile” that I always do when a tee package is sitting on my doorstep, then I ripped open the mailer, pulled the t-shirt out, examined, smiled some more, then shook the package and sadly no stickers or a business cards fell out, which is something I always look for when I first open up the package. I could have possibly misplaced them in my excitement upon opening everything up, I am not sure, but there was a quick, nice note to me from LTDEX, so I appreciated that of course!

LTDEX sent me this tee, Let’s Get Weird which I have to admit, I had no idea what, “Let’s Get Weird” even meant and that gives away that I am not as hip as I probably should be! After a bit of research, I mean Googling, I found out that the phrase was popularized (and possibly originated) from a show called, Workaholics, which I have not had the pleasure of watching yet, but if it’s getting tees made based on it, then it must be good… right? Well maybe, but go ahead and watch the scene that got this little phrase popular – you know you want to chant it!

When researching, I did see several other tees with this “chant” written on it, and while walking on the beach a few days after I got the tee, I saw someone wearing a tee with “Let’s Get Weird” on it, so it’s not a very unique or hard to find design. With that said, the t-shirt at LTDEX  is different from the bunch I’ve seen with it’s simple and bright, retro typeface bursting from the black t-shirt; it is well designed and it’s definitely an eye catcher!

After a little more examining, I noticed it’s printed on a lovely American Apparel fine jersey, so it’s not only soft, it’s one that is of complete quality – a good choice to print on! I really like wearing t-shirts that are a bit loose on me, like this tee, but not all ladies are like me; some prefer something fitted and tight when they are picking out a graphic tee. LTDEX offers only Unisex/Male sizes, so for the ladies that like your tees fitted, you’re out of luck!

When looking at the design closely, the actual print is done nicely – it’s a screen print and the ink has absorbed and fuzed with the threads of the soft blank so after a few washes, it still is maintaining it’s color and crispness. My only regret is that LTDEX did not incorporate a custom tag, either printed or sewn on, to identify the brand on the tee. It not only advertises, it just looks professional and is one of my favorite added touches to a t-shirt.

Make sure to check out LTDEX’s website – looks like a fun bunch of people over there – the model shots are definitely fun! Take a look at the other t-shirts to choose from, most focusing on typography in their designs. Thanks to LTDEX for sending me a tee to review, it’s always a pleasure, and thanks to the readers out there!

Review: NoEmotion Clothing

by Chris_S on September 12, 2012

I got this t-shirt a couple of weeks ago.

I’m telling you that because I don’t want you to think this is a dashed off, unthinking review. Usually, I write stuff fairly quickly; this one I’ve thought about carefully, because it takes a lot of kindness and gumption to send out a review copy of a shirt and this review isn’t going to be a whitewashed positive outlook on it.

I’ve mellowed in the past couple of weeks to ‘She Loves Me’ by NoEmotion (£17.00). When I got it out the bag I hated it. Hated hated hated it. But since then, I’ve worn it a couple of times, and taken a better look at it. It’s not perfect, and I hope that Clarke and the team at NoEmotion will take this as something to build on rather than a shooting down of their tee brand.

If you look around their shop, you’ll see that NoEmotion sell a lot of great designs. I love ‘Hit the Bottle’ and ‘Rock Baby’, and the pictures on the site look great. But when I got ‘She Loves Me’ I got a closer look at the quality of the shirt and the printing and I’d say that – if like me, you like the look of some of these designs – hold back a couple of months until NoEmotion get a bit bigger.

It’s difficult starting out a t-shirt brand. You’ve got to invest in tee stock, printing, a website. It’s not a cheap thing, and it’s difficult to do. One of the biggest costs is the actual printing of designs onto tees. Screenprinting can be expensive when done in any sort of decent detail, and takes a big chunk out of the startup change you have set aside.

Which is why I was disappointed when I pulled the t-shirt out of the package. As far as I can tell, NoEmotion have chosen to put their design on the shirt via iron-on transfers. That’s absolutely fine if you’re just starting out and producing prototype designs. Heaven knows I’m aware that screenprinting can cost an arm and a leg. And though it’s well done…well, I was spending hours with an iron, an inkjet printer and a blank t-shirt when I was 12. It’s acceptable if you’re making shirts for yourself, but when you’re charging £17 for a shirt it might be a little less welcomed by customers.

The design is great, by the way. I’m not keen on the text itself (it’s very 90s anti-grunge, where you use a mix of caps and lowercase in a simple sans serif – the sort of thing you’d see in spreads in The Face or something), and think it detracts from an interestingly positioned and quite poignant graphic. But when you pull on the shirt, you get that crinkly, slightly starched feeling that comes from an iron-on transfer. (Full marks for having the patience to cut out around individual letters, though: my forays into iron-on designs were always scuppered when it came to text.)

A lot of effort has been put into this shirt, which is what makes me so sad to be a downer. You can tell, from the fact that each letter’s been carefully placed on the shirt, to the way that the sleeves have been rolled up and stitched. There’s also an attempt at branding via two name tags – one at the bottom and front of the shirt and one at the back of the neck – which is admirable and has taken a lot of effort, but is a pet hate of mine.

In my experience, I’ve never seen a person carefully examine a brand tag attached to the outside of my t-shirt. I’ve seen people admire a design itself from afar, and come up to ask me where I got the shirt – and I’ve happily told them, giving the brand some more custom. Having not one but two tags on the shirt makes me a walking billboard for a company. Not only that, but the placement of the front tag ruins the flower design.

NoEmotion’s tag on the left, and a more subtle version on the right

If you really want a conspicious branding on a tee, either produce a logo tee or have a small loop tag that can be stitched into the side stitching on the shirt – the way a number of companies do it. I’ve shown how NoEmotion do it above, and how other companies do it: the tag is circled in red. That way people can eyeball it if they really want, or the wearer can point it out to an interested observer.

Andy recently wrote about the importance of (constructive) criticism, and why HYA isn’t just a senseless propaganda machine for tee companies. “Constructive criticism is very important,” he wrote, “and even insults can be useful. Getting a pat on the back is great, you feel good and it reassures you that you’re doing the right thing with your business, but what about when people keep telling you things are great when your t-shirts aren’t selling?”

I hope this hasn’t been insulting, and I hope that the criticisms levied against NoEmotion are helpful. They have a lot of great designs which would look great properly screenprinted and free of conspicious commercial interruption. The designs are worth your money – once the kinks are sorted out.

It’s difficult to commit the money needed to produce a professional product, I know. But if NoEmotion improve their printing process and tone down the tags, I’d be more than happy to come back, post and tell everyone at HYA that they should run – not walk – to buy these t-shirts.

Crooked Monkey T-shirt Review is OMG LOL!

by Leah on September 6, 2012

Post image for Crooked Monkey T-shirt Review is OMG LOL!

Crooked Monkey was kind enough to send me a tee to review and by the looks of it, as well as the other t-shirts on their website, Crooked Monkey is one of those brands that radiates fun in their style, designs, and even in their name! The brand seems to be focusing on t-shirts that make people laugh with their quirky designs and humorous style, but not all are funny shirts – there are also graphic tees with an emphasis on animals, music, and some with lots of color!

My tee arrived in a regular mailer, but the little things inside did make a nice impression on me. After excitingly ripping the tee out of the package, I noticed a bag of candy staring back at me. Aww, candy is always nice, right? Yes, but this candy was clever, it matched the branding of the company so well being as the company name is Crooked Monkey AND the logo features a sweet, faced monkey… so what better than little banana candies? Those really stand out, it’s a fun way to make your customers happy! Not only that, but the coupon code thrown in immediately makes a customer pleased and willing to go shop more – good touch!

So, I received the t-shirt, LOL OMG EYE CHART and as you can see, it’s a tee designed for a person with a silly sense of humor. Not that I am not a silly-minded person, (I might even be too silly at times), but if you know me well enough, you know I really dislike the use of acronyms for everything we do – from laughing to leaving. These Internet slang like LOL, OMG, TTYL, WTF, even BRB and spelling “you” with only an “u” bothers me, so I am hard to please when it comes to this design. Plus the fact that the design is an eye chart makes it a creative excuse for the viewer (man) to stare at the wearer’s (woman’s) chest – is that on purpose? Ha, I believe this tee was designed by a male, that’s for sure! All kidding aside, a review is not solely based on the design of the tee now is it? No, not at all, because we all have different taste and opinions, thank goodness.

Nothing is more important than fit, print, and quality and Crooked Monkey got an A in all three. The blank is a fitted Alstyle with a v-neck that especially feminizes the tee. It’s a tighter fit, and as you can see, it is obviously a white tee, so it can become a bit see-through at times which is definitely not a deal breaker, but it is surprising as most Alstyle I have experienced are thick, but this one is far from it; the tee is very soft and comfortable, which we all know is an extremely important part when wearing a t-shirt. The print looks very good as you can see in the photos it’s even and clean. Also, I can tell you it is not thick or rough to the touch, and after a couple washes, it’s still maintains it’s color and quality. Another fine detail is the monkey logo printed on the back of the shirt. I quite like when brands stick their logo places that can be seen, but in places that are not distracting or too pronounced! Lastly, the custom sewn on tag is a nice addition to the t-shirt as a whole. The logo, size, and, website are printed clearly and the original tag is still in place which not only has the care instructions, but it also distinguishes which blank they are printing on, for those of us that have our attention on that.

Crooked Monkey has quite a large amount of tees to choose from – either funny or graphic, so please take the time to go check out what they have to offer. The prices are a bit high for me ranging from $15 – $24, but I also wish to point out their $1 Promise Scholarship Fund, which I find to be one of the most interesting aspects of Crooked Monkey.

For every 2 t-shirts sold online, we donate $1 to the fund, (some months we run special promotions to donate even more). Every year, we choose one lucky, qualified recipient to receive the scholarship for use at any college, or institution of higher learning that they desire. It’s that simple. We’ve chosen to give back to the American Community, because we feel that our generation is too quick to give abroad before looking at change we can inspire within our community.

More info on how it works and how to apply can be found very easily on their website.

Thanks goes to Crooked Monkey for giving me the opportunity to review their brand and also, I never can forget, thanks to all you HYA readers as well!
