Le Tigre track top from the Microzine sale

By ShinyMedia on July 26th, 2007

We’ve mentioned Microzine’s store before, but this time we can chuck in the magic word – SALE. As part of their reduced range they currently have brands such as Lyle and Scott, Fred Perry and Fila, plus some cool and lesser-seen trainers from Adidas.

I like the look of this track top from Le Tigre, which is reduced from £69 to £39. The hexagonal design and the colour remind me of honeycomb, which is not something I necessarily seek out in clothing, but it’s a nice bonus. There are several similar tops at similar prices on their site, not to mention a fair few pairs of trainers from the likes of Nike, New Balance and Fred Perry. Definitely worth a look.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah design charity t-shirt for Yellow Bird Project

By admin on July 26th, 2007

US indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have recently designed this awesome t-shirt for the Yellow Bird Project, a non-profit organisation that donates the proceeds from its artist-designed t-shirt sales to charity. Which particular charity depends on the one that the artist that designed the shirt has chosen. It’s both a novel and noble concept but, most importantly of course, also allows you to support some of your favourite bands by wearing their awesome clothing.

As well as CYHSY who have played the Benicassim, Latitude and T in the Park festivals this year, Pagan-rockers Wolf Mother and acoustic guitarist King Creosote have also designed some great tees that are available on the site. All are $25 and, remember, it’s for a good cause, which is always a good excuse to splash out on a new garment.


Topman wool duffel coat

By admin on July 25th, 2007

We’re not even halfway through summer (apparently) but already we’re seeing the high-street autumn/winter range starting to creep onto the shelves and racks. How depressing. Not even one full day of sunshine during July and already we’re being told to prepare for the cold.

Oh well, I’ll just have to console myself and make the most of it by buying a new jacket. This Topman duffel coat is rather smart, and is extremely reasonable at £65. Bring on the snow.

Dizzee Rascal at T4′s beach party wearing John Gotti tee

By Isabelle on July 23rd, 2007

Dizzee Rascal is obviously pleased to see us, but what I’m interested in is his t-shirt. The airbrush t-shirt is so Old School which incidentally is the name of his latest single (see what I did there?). If you fancy a similar tee to Dizzee’s then you can get your mitts on one for $60 US dollars, it’s a slightly older image of the man known as the ‘Telfon Don’ for authorities efforts to have him jailed but still has that spraytastic airbrush style.

I would recommend wearing it tight with a partially unbuttoned shirt on top so that your overall look is smart and clean-cut but you have the face of a dead gangster staring out from your chest. Nice. See after the jump for the Gotti t-shirt in all its airbrushed glory.

Ted Baker Tee

By admin on July 23rd, 2007

Here’s a good way to start what is otherwise probably going to be another wet and dreary week. I’ve had my eye on this Ted Baker t-shirt for a couple of weeks now, but just didn’t get around to actually purchasing it. I’m glad I waited – it’s been reduced from £35 to £24. Not bad, and affordable even at the end of the month (yes, I know you need booze money, but you can’t go out with nothing to wear).

Mr Baker is actually having a bit of a summer clear out, so check out his other stuff when you go and buy this sweet tee.

Koodos 65% off sale

By admin on July 20th, 2007


The greatest thing about this time of year is now – officially – the summer sales. It used to be stripping down to nothing but your shorts and splaying yourself out on the beach, relaxing in the beer garden with a jug of overpriced Pimms or just having a muck about in the park with a Frisbee.

But just look out of your window. Depressing, isn’t it? Never mind. Cheer yourself up by splashing out your hard earned wonga on some tasty consumer goods from Koodos’s sale, where you can save up to 65% on certain items. I’ve picked out five bits and pieces that I think might just make your day.

Justin Timberlake look of the week

By admin on July 19th, 2007

Most girls would agree that owl-faced squeekster JT would look good in an old potato sack, so until that day I’ll look to him for some degree of fashion guidance. Ok, so chucking on some William Rast isn’t going to make me instantly irresistible to every woman I meet (or any woman possibly) but every little helps.

This week JT was spotted chomping with a couple of mates in some restaurant somewhere in the world. America probably. Not that it concerns me where he’s eating (even though those ribs look tasty… hmmm), I’m only here to tell you where you can get a similar outfit to Justin’s.

Design By Humans shirts

By admin on July 19th, 2007

Design By Humans
is website with a similar concept to Threadless – contributors submit a t-shirt design on to the site, then readers vote for which tees they like. Popular designs get picked up for production, while losing ones get consigned to the terrible, burning maw of t-shirt hell, where they suffer a fate worse than being worn by a really fat, smelly person.

Having checked the site out, I have to say that the big difference between the sites is the quality of the designs. I doubt that before the submissions go to the public vote they’re vetted, selected and vetoed by a panel of high court judges, so it can only be the readership that’s giving DBH the edge over Threadless. But then, perhaps that’s down to the former not being as well known which is plausible, seeing as they’ve only got about 12 men’s shirts for sale at the mo.

Of the few that they do have, this is my favourite – the Addition tee is $24 and available now.

Topman Zealot Revolution tee

By admin on July 18th, 2007

Not sure what kind of political statement this Topman shirt (£14) is quite trying to make with it’s meaningless but graphic depiction. And I don’t know who Kelly Sanchez is. The leader of the Zealot Revolution? An obscure South American political figure? The bloke who designed the tee?

Not that I actually care. I just like the awesomeness of the shirt. I mean, who in the hell doesn’t like skulls in tophats? Damn fools, that’s who. And you’re not a damn fool, are you? No? Then go out and buy one, ya damn fool.


Little Paper Planes clothing

By admin on July 17th, 2007

While trying to find a t-shirt with a print of a paper plane emblazoned across the chest (explanation here) I came across this gem of a clothing website. Little Paper Planes is a portal for a collection of artists selling t-shirts, bags jewelry and original prints of their work.

None of their work features actual paper planes, but fortunately that matters not. For what is on the site is a selection of original, surreal and slightly disturbing t-shirts. All are hand-printed on high quality American Apparel shirts and are dead cheap – $20 which is under £10 these days.

I’ve picked this scary flamingo print by designer Apenest($20), shown above, as my favourite choice from the site, but the range is quite diverse, so you should be able to find something a little less creepy. Also, check out Kelly’s blog, the owner of the site, for updates and fashion and designer news.

Justin Timberlake sports cool RVCA t-shirt

By admin on July 17th, 2007

Justin Timberblake was recently spotted wearing an awesome shirt bearing the RVCA logo (pronounced ROO-KA) shortly after picking up a cheque for £35 million pounds from his managers as payment for his 101-show tour of the world. And even if the Michael Jackson-mimicking lothario drops out of the tour, he still pockets the lot. Wish I could get a contract like that here…

Now with all that money in mind, you’d think Timberlake’s shirts would be hand-stitched by the finest, most skilled tailors in all the world, made from the rarest, unethical materials (like baby skin) and delivered to him by a horse and carriage made entirely from gold and diamonds. Then after he’d worn it only once, he’d burn it in front of a group of orphans about to have their care-home torn down because Justin just bought the deeds to turn it into a strip-joint. That’s what I’d do anyway.

But young JT isn’t that evil or stupid with money, because he probably paid about £25 for his shirt. RVCA have a great range of t-shirts from £20, with the Ben Horton design, shown above, (£27) being my favourite. Check out their other tees here.

Hmmm… wonder if they do one in gorilla fur…


Howies Anger Management tee

By Isabelle on July 17th, 2007

Howiestee_2When perfecting my weaving technique on the Tube in the morning so that I might reach the platform quicker I often ponder the pointlessness of it. This is where Howies t-shirt come in and remind you there is more to life than gaining thirty seconds on your morning commute! This summer blue t-shirt features a scribbled man on a bike, with the words Anger Management written underneath. Kind of makes you want to head off for a bracing ride in the country doesn’t it? Printed on organic cotton it will set you back a non-anger inducing £25.

Paper Pilot: Educational AND fun

By admin on July 16th, 2007


If you’ve never built an Airfix model in your life, it’s either because you have the dexterity of a monkey with the DTs or were too "cool" to be seen going into Model Zone shop on a Saturday morning. For shame. You missed out big time. Apart from the fact that it gave me the opportunity to set fire to failed projects, it also taught me the importance of patience when putting together fiddly pieces of kit with obscure instructions – essential in this day and age of the Ikea flatpack.

But it’s not too late to recapture at least some of your lost youth. Paper Pilot: The Paper Airplane Pilot’s Manual (£10) gives you the low-down on 24 of the last century’s endeavours into flight, detailing the history and specifications of each plane in the book. And get this: When you retire to your study to "read", you can actually use the book to make paper versions of the planes featured. You can’t argue that constructing a Spitfire from nothing but paper and a craft knife isn’t manly…

Okay, you can, so if you’re really too cool for school, rather than making a paper plane you can wear one. This ace Paper Plane tee from Australian designers Plastic and Milk is about £18, and gives you a subtle way of declaring your love for the humble paper plane, without any detriment to your image.

Topman striped polo

By admin on July 16th, 2007

Inexpensive, simple, devoid of stupid slogans and gaudy patterns or blatant "distressing" – sometimes you just want a smart top you can chuck on in the morning without worrying which statement you want to make on that day. That’s why I have to applaud this Topman Polo Shirt (£16). It’s just nice to see that Topman, purveyors of everything "nu-rave" (isn’t that trend over yet?) going back to basics, allowing those over the age of twenty to start shopping there again. Yay.
