You’ll have to get your order in quick, but as far as ugly Christmas jumpers go I think that this might be my favourite of the year!

Costiness=$35 Buy it at Enclothe


Ahhh, a new shirt for the IT guy at your office. Shirts are $5 this week off as usual.



Great week of new tees at laFraise

by Andy on June 17, 2013

Well, colour me impressed by what got added to the store at laFraise this week.


Even though I’m not a massive fan of either Star Wars or Star Trek I did feel a certain sense of anger when I first saw this design, funny how attached you can become to things in pop culture.

Costiness=$10 (for now, it’ll be up to $14.99 soon) Buy it at TB

It’s been quite freeing not to have to worry about writing the daily post Monday-Friday, I felt quite a lot of pressure to get those posts up by 12 every day even though not that many people were reading them, but I do still like to check in on the daily/weekly sites every so often.

Big and tall tee site Fresh Brewed Tee have these two designs from Jon Rohde (AKA Buzatron) up this week for the more sizeable in the HYA audience. It looks like this is available as a two-pack for $30 with no option t pick them up separately. The shirts are available until June 15th.


Good on them for going down the legitimate route with these Star Wars designs and actually getting permission from LucasFilm to sell these designs. I’m not too hot on the Saber & Vader design that is influenced by 80s skater style, but I wasn’t a skater in the 80s so I’m okay with that. The Tauntaun meat cuts tee is a bit of fun, I’d quite like that as a poster. I do wish that Super7 had larger product images though, it would be nice to be able to see a bit more detail.

I’m more excited about this t-shirt from BustedTees than I am about Random Access Memories.

Regular readers already know what I’m going to say, this design made me smile, and I think that it could be popular, but with that mockup instead of a real photo of the t-shirt being worn I am A LOT less likely to want to buy it. Still, it’s a funny enough concept for me to run even though it’s only in mocked up form.

Costiness=£20 Buy it at Ste Machine Designs (check out their Facebook page for free tee prize draws)


Bit of a mixed bag this one if you ask me, there’s a couple in there that I don’t like, but the grand prize winner at the top and that maze design are pretty damn great if you ask me.

Pick them up at


Just a couple of designs from famed street artist David Flores in this little collection but Akomplice have certainly managed to make quite a lot from it. Stormtroopers and a topless Kate Moss, what more could you want?

Solid week of new designs from Tshirt Laundry, I’m not sure if I’d wear either of the pop culture designs but I can certainly see their appeal to others.


I usually quite like the pre-order tees from outsmART Originals but this one just isn’t working for me, it doesn’t show the amount of creativity that I’ve come to expect from them. It’s kind of disappointing to see that stereotyped ‘Asian’ font being used for the word ‘sumo’ on this design, especially since that font is meant to look Chinese (right?) and Sumo is a Japanese thing, it just seems a bit lazy. It’ll ship in late April and you can pre-order now in S-5XL for $20.


I’d be lying if I said that this was the best week ever at Tshirt Laundry.


Boba Skates – history and contest

by Andy on March 6, 2013

I’ve never really thought of submitting to HYA before – but today Unamee are running my Boba Skates design.
This in itself is not intrinsically exciting – but there are two reasons I’m posting this.

a) Boba Skates was actually my first ever tshirt design – I did him way back in early 2000. Made it as a horrible iron on transfer on a cheap C&A tee and blam! A happy me. It’s exciting (to me) to see the newer version of the design hitting one of the daily sites.

b) I’m running a contest to win a custom made vintage Star Wars looking toy – and I am super chuffed about this

That’s it really.

Andy: I usually wouldn’t post individual daily tee site relelases…. but that competition is pretty neat.


It’s interesting to see Enclothe putting out some Star Wars designs since it’s unusual for them to create products based on a movie compared to their usual subject matter. I think we can say it worked out well though, those are two sweet designs, though I do worry that they’ll be slapped down with a DMCA request as we have seen happen with stormtrooper helmet designs in the past. The shirts are $21 each an available now.


new pop culture designs at tshirt laundry

As you’d imagine I don’t really understand why Yoda needed to be transported into the Hunger Games, but at least there’s a fun ‘cut it out’ sign language design that I presume has accurate signing on it. Both tees $14 at Tshirt Laundry this week, and the poster is $9.


This month’s limited edition t-shirt from Tidy Shirts is a hand painted design called ‘Death Vader’. Printed onto grey or white t-shirts, and limited to just 25 prints the design is up for pre-order over at

Andy: I’m a bit torn over this design, on the one hand the painting style of the artwork is what gives it charm and character, but on the other it would be interesting to see a more conventional style design with clean lines too. Either way, I like it.


may the fez be with you t-shirt

Some say that there is a power that flows through the universe, binding the galaxies together and keeping all things in harmony. Others know this to be true, and know that that power is actually a mad man with a box. Doctor Who and Star Wars collide in this 6-color design.

Indeed, the Fez is strong with this one!

You know what, I’ve never seen an episode of the ‘new’ Doctor Who, I keep menaing to check it out, but it just doesn’t really appeal to me, and there always seems to be something else on that I want to watch, but through t-shirts I have learned that the Fez is something of a big deal, even if I don’t turly understand what relevance it has, or if it helps this shirt ‘make sense’. Still, it’s excellent artwork as usual from Ian, even if the concept doesn’t grab me personally I can always respect his level of talent.

Costiness=$20 Buy it from Ian Leino and be sure to check out the rest of his store for more Star Wars and Doctor Who t-shirts

We’ve seen a different iteration of this shirt before but I will dig this design in any form, and this colourway is pretty tasty, just wish we had an actual pic instead of a mockup.

Also, yes, NZD$40 isn’t that cheap, but things cost quite a bit in New Zealand compared to the US and they need to make a living.

Costiness=NZD$40 Buy it from Sneaky Studios
