Starting a clothing company seems like a cool idea, but will you manage to make it come true? Having great ideas is – of course – very nice, however you must have some luck along the way, too. Luckily for him – Ben Farleigh of London-based streetwear line Yes No Maybe inhereted a screen printer from his dad’s old workplace, along  with some screen-printing frames, so he could start the old-school way: try / fail / learn.

After the nucleus of Yes No Maybe was created Ben managed to broaden his apparel to many various items within next few years. It now offers hooded sweaters, bags, beanies, caps and many other sweet little thingies. It would be almost impossible to present Yes No Maybe whole offer in a single post, so I’ll rather introduce their latest winter line, called Filthy Dirty.

  • Concept

As you can see Filthy Dirty collection features a splodgy design which is covering each item as a whole. Grey, black and blue stains in various shades are printed onto white pieces of clothes, which makes a great looking combination, especially if you’re wearing it outside (i.e. – hoodies).

  • Offer

Similar to Yes No Maybe previous lines, such as Bukkake Ruined My Carpet and StreetglamFilthy Dirty collection is very diverse, featuring such products as zip-up hoodies (in both men and women styles), women-styled sweaters, vests and caps. It’s certainly much more than many other similar companies offer, however I think they might have included a men-styled sweater, too.

  • Prices

Prices range depending on desired item, starting from £25.65 for women-sytles T-shirts and vests, £39.60 for women-styled crew sweater, up to £53.10 for both men and women-styled zip-thru hoodies. Prices fit the offer well,  I only think that £26.09 for baseball cap is a bit pricey. However that’s just my humble opinion and it shouldn’t prevent you from ordering it.

In conclusion I’d like to state Yes No Maybe is a very interesting  clothing company you should have your eye on. They not only have a wide range of products in their offer, but also feature nice, deliberate designs that represent young opinionated people, not forgetting everything’s relative in life.

Would I recommend Filthy Dirty to you? Yes. Would I lie if I tell you YNM has more cool lines? No. Would I like other items added to Filthy Dirty line? Maybe.

I’d love to hear your opinion on Fithy Dirty line. Would you perhaps like to own some other Yes No Maybe item? Let us all know by leaving your comment below – your opinion is greatly appreciated!

What a great tee company! Waterloo (the name pays a tribute to great The Kinks song “Waterloo Sunset”, not ABBA) started by a group of friends in Argentina, who wanted to have some unique shirts inspired by great rock music they listened to. So they started making their own shirts DIY, and later on it became a “real job” with selling their designs worldwide via internet. I simply LOVE their retro-inspired collection, covering such artists as The Clash (ah, the almighty Clash…), The Who, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, David Bowie and so on. They also make designs influenced by some great movies, music magazines and festivals, plus, they also make really cool retro bags from ecological leather, which is more than great. Here is some of the new stuff off of their website.

Designs are silk-screened and all of them are available for both men and women (women shirts come in 3 different styles, but not for every design). Shirts are 25 US bucks, and if you order 3 of them – you get one for free! But that’s not all, folks! If you’re reading this and want to order from them, YOU GET 10% DISCOUNT OFF! Just add teezine in the discount field at the bottom of your shopping cart. Great, isn’t it?

And just when I thought “it would be nice if these guys had kids collection”, I noticed that actually they do! For more great Waterloo designs and more information on ordering – check their website. And if that’s not enough – these creative people also have their indie rock band, you can check their MySpace profile for some nice tunes…

Today I want to tell you about an interesting tee company in Edinburgh, Scotland, which proves there are more good things coming from that city apart from The Exploited (I bet you all know who they are). ILK Industries started as an idea of creating different tee fashion that the one which is sold by large companies. After their first shirts, which were gone quickly, they decided to make more designs and from there on they continue to create some cool T-shirt art. I randomly picked some of their tees off of their site. As they say – ladies first…

What I like about their women shirts is that they come in various styles (as you can see on pictures above), like low cut or scoop neck top shirts. Here are a couple of men T-shirt designs.

They also have some hoodies and bags. I really enjoy their nature-inspired graphics and environmentalist attitude. Plus, they also have a nice website too, and guess what – all their products (not a nice word at all) are now on SALE (women shirts are 12 GB pounds now, men shirts are 14 pounds, hoodies 22 pounds and bags less than 6 pounds). So, no reason to check their site out, choose some of their stuff and order it. And while you’re waiting, you can listen to some Billy Bragg… Go, ILK!

Browsing the web in a holy quest of finding some cool tee designs, I came across an interesting T-shirt company. Mythic Style doesn’t have that many designs, but they kick ass for sure. I mean, I was blown away buy their design called “Juan De Los Muertos”. Maybe it comes from my secret obsession with mariachi and the Day of the Dead. Just look at it:

I picked one more design to be presented here. It’s called “The Soul Train”, and just by first look at this shirt I was instantly reminded of great late Joe Strummer and one of his ultimate hits, “Train In Vain”.

All Mysthic Style shirts come in men / women styles and sizes. Designs are printed on America Apparel shirts, which is always a good choice. They use various printing techniques , but mostly it’s silk screening. They tend to differ from many other T-shirt companies by putting the interior print on their shirts.

Shirts cost 28 bucks, and if you purchase at least 3 of them they don’t charge a shipping (and you can get their company’s logo shirt for free). Hope they continue with what they started, maybe some ancient Indian burial ceremony would be an interesting choice for a new design…
