9 Iconic Sweaters Drawn from Pop Culture

by Andy on September 4, 2011

inconic sweaters

Sure, you can’t buy these (at least not yet), but it’s still a really cool illustration showing some iconic sweaters from the worlds of cinema, TV and music. Weezer caught wind of this post by Found Item Clothing and mentioned it on their Facebook page, resulting in an avalanche of traffic for Travis. I’m sure this post on HYA won’t bring him similar internet fame, but hopefully you guys will enjoy checking out these lovely illustrations.

“Kings of Neon”, ha, I see what you did there, Terratag.


gold coin spring drop

This was actually released more than a week ago, but in the spirit of “if I haven’t seen it, it’s new to me,” I present you with the first part of Gold Coin’s Spring Collection. Looks good to me, it’ll be interesting to see what other goodies they come up with, and I’ll try to post them in a more timely fashion.


fast times clothing

Fast! Times clothing based in Rockland New York recently dropped there 2010-2011 winter line featuring these shirts. Most noticeably the Bubble Gum shirt & Diamond Kiss shirt available for both mens and woman in multiple colorways.

[Andy: I wasn’t really feeling this line when I saw the products in the store, but seeing them in their lookbook did make things a lot better, which is proof (if it were needed), that using pictures of your tees being worn by people is a good idea.]

Lowdtown’s Winter Line

Post image for Lowdtown’s Winter Line

Since you guys know Ray from Lowdtown is the creative force behind the new HYA logo, and responsible for the tee in the HYA store, you’d think that there’s no way I’d be able to give him a fair and unbaised review… and you’d be right. So I’m not going to. Instead, here’s some cool new items from Lowdtown, including other crew neck sweaters, a tee, and wallet. Yes, a wallet, and a pretty sweet one at that. I like them, you judge for yourself.

Black Sheep Sweaters, made of black sheep!

by Andy on December 9, 2009



If you own a black wool sweater, chances are the wool used to make that sweater came from a white sheep, and was then dyed black, much like the way most clothes have to be dyed to reach their eventual colour. Cordarounds however, decided to cut the dying aspect out of the process and offer a sweater made from the wool of a black sheep. Sounds simple, but it’s actually pretty tough to made a sweater entirely out of black sheep wool. Only 1% of the worlds sheep are black, and you need quite a lot of them to make a load of sweaters. Eventually, the Cordarounds crew sourced a farm in Ireland that don’t dip their sheep in hazardous chemicals, and don’t artificially fertilise the fields they graze in (no one does that around where I live either, they just spread poop, it smells as nice as you’d imagine), and with that kind of treatment you’ll hardly be expected to find that the wool is organic certified. Of course, black sheep aren’t really black, so the sweater has actually turned out a kind of grey colour, but I think we can let that slide.

It’s a cool idea, and probably a lot more work to organise than I presume, and everyone needs a winter sweater, so why not make it an interesting one?

Costiness=$125 Available from Cordarounds

Animal House College Sweater by NerdyShirts

by Andy on December 4, 2009


Animal House was released in 1978 and I was born in 1984, so I probably don’t really appreciate this sweater as much as I could, but I get the reference, I like it, and that’s enough for me.

Costiness=$19.97 Available from Nerdy Shirts


End of Season Sale at The Quiet Life

Savings look to be a minimum of 25% judging from my quick scan of the store, so that’s good clothes at better prices!

CTRLs Fall/Winter 09 Lookbook

by Andy on September 17, 2009


That tee above is my favourite piece from this line, but if you think it sucks (you’d be wrong, but that’s your choice) there are an awful lot more designs from this range to check out in the gallery, where I’ve included the entire lookbook (and all the links go through to the huge pics too).

the collection is inspired by all the amazing flowers in the world, people in the Philippines, the latest questions like if something is OK or not OK, the miles Davis quintet ’67, Johnny Depp’s incredible performance as cry-baby, Johnny Depp’s breathtaking performance as Jack Sparrow (a kind of jesus) and the wonderful feeling of “ensipuraisu”.

Ridiculous, but if that thought process works for them and produces clothes like this line, then why not? The line is onsale now at their store (with free shipping across Europe) and at their many stockists throughout the world.

Considering that The Quiet Life is actually a camera club, they do a very good impression of a clothing label. I really, really, like the hoodie posted above, there’s quite a lot going on but it isn’t too crazy at the same time. There’s lots more good stuff going on in the gallery, too.

Oh, and from now until Christmas, if you spend more than $75 (before shipping) you’ll receive a free camera bag, and considering each hoodie is about $70 I’m sure you can manage that.

Say Hello To Nonoloa

by Andy on November 22, 2008

This Madrid-based clothing label have sat in my inbox for too long, which clearly does them a disservice, because after you’ve checked out the gallery I’m sure you’ll agree that they’ve got some pretty good designs, not a huge range, but their wheat/chaff ratio is certainly very healthy. As usual, if anyone fancies having a crack at translating the Japanese on their sweaters (shown in the gallery) then I would very much appreciate it.

Their (flash-based) website is really cool too, and it’s pretty rare that I’ll say that about a flash site!

Say Hello to Twon Clothing

by Andy on November 19, 2008

It’s nice to see someone trying to design a tee that is all about New York without having any reference to the iconic ‘I [heart]…’ design. Twon continues the NYC loves throughout their latest range, the best word I can think of to describe it with is ‘fresh’, check out the gallery (in which they take a swipe at the ‘I’m not a plastic bag’ crowd) and see if you agree.

The rest of the pics in this post are hidden behind a cut for reasons that will become obvious if you click through (hint: nipples), so if you’re at work it might not be a good idea to read the rest of this post… unless you work at Playboy.

If you can tear yourself away from the models, you’ll find that the clothes they’re almost wearing are actually pretty cool. This ‘micro collection’, as they’re calling it, was created by the French designer Akroe (site contains slowly flashing images; this post is filled with danger!), for the French label Six Pack.
