MEKANIK CLOTHING- Bolt Dismay T-Shirt Review

by MissMcFaul on November 25, 2012

You need only to visit MEKANIK CLOTHING‘s website to instantly recognise that this streetwear brand is sleek, sharp and bold with a humorous twist and a nod to pop culture geekdom. So far so good! Launched earlier this year by Istanbul based artist and graphic designer MEKAZOO, the influences of sci-fi, mechas, videogames and b-movies are clearly represented in his work. The tee’s on offer appeal to a love of bold, simple, eye catching urban design which is why (after a really long wait, Turkish postman be slow yo!) I was thrilled when the package below plopped through my door!

(Photo: www.mknk.net)

The parcel contained the tee and a business card (which if we’re getting all “American Psycho” was a nice, bold black and white print on thick, matte card) and a sticker but also a sheet of card printed with a cut-n-build your own toy which was very exciting as I love a bit of scissors-paper-glue crafting! (Pics of crafting prowess below)

 

(Photo: www.mknk.net)

The tee itself is feels smooth and cool and the tri-colour print pops out against the crisp white background. The image is printed on with precision and has a pleasant texture. Giving it a poke and a stretch also reveals it to be pretty resilient to cracking or peeling which is a problem sometimes when an ink is too thick and becomes brittle, but all MEKANIK tees are and printed with eco-friendly water-based inks, which is a relief to those of us with an eco-conscience!

The smooth, soft feel when wearing is down to the  100% combed ring spun cotton which should assure you of the garments quality as 100% cotton fibre content will never result in pilling or bobbling that you get with polyester blends (it’s also more absorbant, for all you sweaty betties out there) . In fact the quality of the fabric, print and construction should mean this garment lasts and last. The only thing that could possible take it down would be a red wine of curry stain down the front!

Size men’s medium is a good fit on my medium sized partner  but it’s also a nice size for any girls who like a looser “boyfriend” fit.

STYLING TIP: For a chic and edgy urban look, ladies, roll up the sleeves and wear with skinnies, dirty converse (or ankle boots with a heel if so inclined) and some Mr.T necklace application. I also enjoy a good door-knocker chav earring when rocking a tee. Just an idea!

 Here is the paper toy before (above) and after construction (below), which was a fun 10mins out of my day and looks cool on the bookshelf gathering dust. MEKAZOO has plans to expand his brand with hoodies, hats and designer toys which I will definitely be checking out.

 I really really appreciate a printed back neck label in place of those itchy folded tapes which, I at least, end up cutting out leaving an ugly frayed bit that still tickles! ALL apparel should have the brand and size info sneakily printed on somewhere! #nomoreitchylabelsthankyouplease.

Now, I had a bit of an issue with the creasing situation after wearing it all day and being comfortable and receiving plenty of compliments, I stood up and the front had concertina’d like an accordion and stayed that way all night. Cotton does crease I’ll admit but body heat will usually cause creases to drop out, this extreme creasing could be down to an applied finish on the fabric which kept it so flat and sharp looking in transit and may wear off after laundering a few times.

One last criticism would be that after washing (following care label instructions obviously) the tee shrank 3cm in length and 2cm across pit to pit. While this isn’t a massive change it is worth noting if you’re a borderline size, maybe consider sizing up. This shrinking also caused an issue with slight puckering around the neck and some twisting of the sleeve cuff.

These pictures of sleeve twist were taken before ironing, you (or your mum) could potentially iron the worst of it out but it will always return to this configuration after washing. This is known as spirality which affects jersey fabrics such as this, the only thing that can help reduce this twisting is a more careful approach to the construction of the sleeve WHICH I might add may only affect this particular tee! Yours might have been made by a more skilled machinist!

In summary this is a great tee and MEKANIK CLOTHING is definitely worth checking out. Cool, comfortable clothes for boys and girls! Can’t wait to see how the brand progresses.

disney mickey mouse bloc28 t-shirt

Just as I was typing that title it made me realise that Urban Retro is Urban Retro again, I wonder why they dropped being called Candy Pulse?

It’s quite cool to see an organisation as big as Disney teaming up with cool artists to create interesting shirts, you’d expect that they’d be too worried about letting their very, very valuable intellectual property be toyed around with by an outside influence (though presumably there are massive restrictions on what a designer can do with Mickey), but in this case the design looks great in all three colourways. Pity it’s only available in sizes M & L though.

candy pulse urban retro

Urban Retro was a name that whilst kind of generic and bland, at least you kind of knew what you were getting when you clicked a link, whereas Candy Pulse is a bit more ambiguous, even if it does sound an awful lot cooler. Quite a lot of their items (iPhone skins, vinyl toys, plush toys) do share many similarities with candy, you know you shouldn’t have them but really want them, and eventually give in and tell yourself this is the last time you’ll eat that delicious, delicious chocolate/MacBook gelaskin.

The new site is a big improvement on the old one though, this is definitely an onwards-and-upwards move from the UR/CP team, it’s nice to know there’s somewhere like this in the UK where I can pick up a present for a graphic designer-type friend if I need to. I’ve just noticed that this post is bit heavy on their non-clothing aspects, they do of course still sell a wide variety of tees, hoodies, and accessories.

From now until midnight on August 30th you can get 25% off your order using the coupon code hello25

Post image for Coupon Codes for 10% & 15% off at Urban Retro

Urban Retro just released a couple of codes that will give you 10% off everything in store, and 15% off gelaskins (those cool stickers that you can put on your various electronic gadgets, I have one on my iPhone). The codes will expire at the end of the year, so if you’re making a purchase there at any point this year make sure you remember to check back for this code.

The 10% code is – URBANRETRO10

The 15% off gelaskins code is – GELASKINS15

Urban Retro also like to call them voucher codes, so if you can’t find a coupon code box anywhere during checkout, ‘voucher code’ might be what you’re looking for. Oh, and they have loads of stuff on sale too, double savings to be had!

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109

After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

10% off at Urban Retro

Sale Items - UrbanRetro.co.uk_1258968620843

I know that 10% off isn’t a huge saving, especially this week, but this code lasts until February 1st next year, so it’s got a lot of life in it, and Urban Retro have got a lot of stuff on sale at the moment too, so there are some bargains to be had and the coupon code of UrbanXmas will make the deal that little bit tastier. If you’re looking at getting a gelaskin (I have one on my iPhone, I like it) then you can get 15% off (also until Feb. 1st 2010) using the code GELASKINS15.

I’m pretty sure the last time I wrote about a track jacket the Game Boy had just been released and people had not yet enjoyed the wonders of cheese in the crust of a pizza, so it’s pretty fitting that I’m posting a track jacket from Urban Retro with a distinctly retro flair to it. It certainly is a clean looking design, there’s not really much to it, which means that there isn’t exactly a lot there to complain about, but perhaps that means you guys might not find it interesting enough?

I think the infographic makes it pretty clear what the offer at Terratag, so those of you willing to live on the wild side and buy without knowing what you’re getting (except for a hefty saving on their usual prices) will probably be a little excited right now. If you’re the kind of person that likes a bit more control and wants to see the merchandise before you part yourself with your cash, Urban Retro have got quite a lot of Terratag t-shirts on sale for as low as £9.99 each, which is actually the same price as the grab bag on a per-tee basis, but I think that the sale designs are older stock, whereas you don’t know what you’ll be getting in the grab bag.

Popeye vs. Brutus

No matter how popular Popeye was, I don’t think anything could make spinach into a popular vegetable. for me, those green leaves will forever be something that I eat because I know they’re good for me, not because I like them.

202 Star Wars T-Shirts [Lists]

by Andy on July 16, 2009

star-wars-t-shirts-logo

I think that you’d be pretty hard pressed to find a series of movies that have gained as much of a following as Star Wars, and as you’d expect that has resulted in a huge amount of t-shirts being produced that reference the films in one way or another. So, being HYA, I thought that I’d better make an unnecessarily large list of them. As always, the t-shirts are not ranked, the numbers are merely there as an illustration so that we all know which is which, so being #1 or #202 means nothing. Some of these tees will be pretty recognisable as they’ve been featured on HYA before, and some were also in the 101 Robots List from last month, but if you know of any I haven’t featured then please let me know in the comments. The list has also been split up into pages to ensure swift loading times (my server may probably wouldn’t like people loading 202 pictures at a time).

As you would expect these lists take quite a long time (this one took about 30 hours, seriously), so if you deem it worthy, it would be fantastic if you could promote this article in any way. Twitter, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Digg, your own blog, carve the URL onto a tree, anything!

Our chums over at Urban Retro have got some pretty decent deals going on at the moment; t-shirts are up to 70% off, Poketo and tinymeat wallets up to 50% off, gelaskins are up to 75% off, vinyl toys up to 70% off, and posters a mere 40% off. Of course, those high percentage savings are pretty rare in the store, but there are definitely bargains to be found.

If those savings aren’t enough for you, you can get 10% off your entire order by using the coupon code URBAN10, and 15% off gelakins by using the coupon code GELASKINS15. Both of these codes are valid until January 31st 2010, which is rather a long time away.

101 Robot T-Shirts [Lists]

by Andy on June 19, 2009

100robottees1

With the release of what is almost certain to be the greatest movie of all time today in the UK and across the world over the next week, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity for me to hunt down some robot t-shirts, especially as the previous robot-themed lists have are two of Hide Your Arm’s most popular articles to date. I must admit that I was a total child for the first Transformers live-action movie, even though I realise that in many, many ways it is utterly terrible, but I still smiled throughout the whole thing because it was goddamn awesome. Robots, fighting, and Megan Fox, what more could I possibly want? I’m pretty sure that you could rob my house whilst that film is on TV and I’d only realise you were doing it once you unplugged the Blu-Ray player. I guess you could say I’m a little excited about Revenge of the Fallen being released, which is why I went a little robot crazy and compiled this huge robot tee loving list. Enjoy!

This post took around 15 hours to compile, if you could take a few seconds to tweet about the post, stumble it, bookmark it on delicious, digg it, possibly even mention it in a blog post, I would be incredibly grateful, not only because it would send more visitors to my site, but also because it would help to support the brands featured, many of whom are pretty small and need all the exposure they can get.

One of the things I noticed on my two trips to Asia in ’07 and ’08 (cripes, I might not make it to Asia this year) is that big brands there like to collaborate with smaller brands, especially in the clothing world. I can understand why Louis Vuitton want to collaborate with Murakami, but why do Hello Kitty go out of their way to engage the streetwear world?

So, why are Disney letting a group of artists, in the form of Bloc28, provide their own take on one of Disney’s most iconic characters, Mickey Mouse?

Disappointingly, I don’t have an answer for you, maybe they just thought it would be cool. The tees aren’t exactly cheap at £24.99 a piece, but if you’re a Disney fan looking for something a bit more interesting than this, then you might want to check them out at Urban Retro.

New Tees from Chunk at Urban Retro

by Andy on January 14, 2009


Ahhh Chunk, are you ever going to stop subverting pop culture icons from my childhood?

Considering I would consider myself a fan of Chunk’s cheeky designs, I’m not particularly wowed by this latest collection that have become available at Urban Retro, something about their execution doesn’t seem quite right, but the concepts are all pretty solid.
