Well, perhaps I don’t. But Milk Industries does. If you haven’t been introduced to this awesome clothing line – it’s about time you do. Their fresh and fun-taste-ic designs are looking great and are ready to consume!

Milk Industries come from Italy and the brand was conceived after liters and liters of coffee. Add a little (designer) milk in it – and there you have a lovely Italian caffè macchiato you just cannot resist. It even tastes better if consumed with some donuts, wursts or candies. All this incorporated makes Milk Industries one of the nicest lines I’ve came across lately.

Brand concept and designs

As already mentioned – Milk Industries designs are based on stuff most of us consume everyday, making it look more appealing and irresistible with the mighty force of their well-trained designer hand. They wanted to create something to wear on everyday basis, without looking monotone. That’s why they choose lovable colors when designing  almost cartoon-ish characters out of foods and drinks.

Web presence

Having their website there on Wix platform, along with Spreadshirt shop and Facebook profile, I’d say Milk Industries’ web presence is okay. However, they should invest into their own website to make it more serious. They’ve also started to use Twitter recently – which is a great thing for promotion of their awesome tees – so make sure you follow them today!

Printing method

All Milk Industries are printed using a Spreadshirt method. In case you don’t know how this works – Spreadshirt is a T-shirt designer platform which allows you to create your own designs and customize your own shirts. After you submit your design it gets printed and sent to you. After you payed for it, of course… Spreadshirt also allows you to create your online shop where other people can buy your designs and Spreadshirt takes it’s percentage of sales. This is especially handy for smaller quantities of shirts and for lines that are just starting because you don’t have to invest a lot of money into shirts and printing. Although I think it’s nice system I’d love to see Milk Industries printing their stuff on their own one day.

Offering and pricing

Apart from your regular men and women styled T-shirts, Milk Industries offer hoodies, too, making sure you’re warm when drinking your daily glass of milk. All of their designs are printed onto American Apparel items, which guarantees you great quality. Prices are okay, too, perhaps a bit higher than average, but still affordable. Shirts range from around €20.00 – €26.oo, while hooded sweatshirts are offered for around €40.00. By the way – 1 Euro is like 1.4 dollars at the moment, so do some maths.

If you follow what we publish here at Teezine then you might remember UK’s indie label Nokturnal Clothing from our previous posts (they won the bronze medal in Teezine 2010 T-shirt Olympics in Best Online Shop category). Folks at Nokturnal just informed us they’ve released a new amazing hoodie – their first ever – so we thought we might take a look at it.

Nokturnal Coat Of Arms hoodie - back

Nokturnal Coat Of Arms hoodie - back

First thing we liked is that this piece of cloth comes in both dark heather grey and black colors. As you can see, there is a big print on back and Nokturnal old-school looking logo on front (left breast). The design itself – called “Nokturnal Coat Of Arms” – looks really awesome, featuring a crest with many interesting details, such as daggers, crowns and weird looking animal creatures. The title above says “we are all nokturnal”. It would only look better without Nokturnal logo above it, in our humble opinion. Oh, and a big plus is that this is a zip-up hooded sweatshirt you’d be proud to wear everywhere you go.

This design is printed onto American Apparel flex fleece hoodies – and if you ever bought any American Apparel item then you must know it’s of finest quality. You can buy this hoodie alone for £35.00 (around $56.00), but also in a promo bundle along with Nokturnal font T-shirt for £40.00 (around $64.00). Hope to see more Nokturnal hoodies soon!

Ninjaboy shirt design by Aaitski!How to create T-shirt designs which are both looking good and are easy to sell?  T-shirt market is flooded with tons of different designs, targeting specific customers, but not many lines find “the secret formula”. Luckily, seems like Belgian indie label Aaitski! found theirs.

Aaitski! cutees

Aaitski! was founded when two creative minds by the names of Kingseys and The Knight Writer transformed their animals and children based ideas into cute and funky iconic designs. Add a bit odd name – and there you have a cool clothing brand! Upon it’s conception Aaitski! was very well received by rockers, rollers, all those feeling happy or blue and especially their offspring. Today it’s the ever-growing family of tees, hooded sweaters and kids clothes, spreading their cutees across the world, operating from Belgium, Europe.

Brand concept & designs

As already mentioned – Aaitski! creates cute lil’ icons based on various animals, different boys’n’girls appearances and a whole set of vehicles, including bulldozers,  submarines and jets (not to forget spaceships, too). All designs have unique, easy-to-recognize designer signature, which sets Aaitski! apart from other players in the game, no matter how good they are. I first saw their icons couple of years ago when I’ve started Teezine and I immediately loved the brand, admiring the fact they can turn  a panda, a robot and a ninja into such simple, yet distinct designs.

Printing method

It would be a pity if such great looking designs weren’t printed the proper way. All Aaitski! designs are manually screen-printed, which is perhaps the most popular method of printing. If done properly, screen printing ensures long durability and resistivity of colors. You can’t tell a lot just from looking at the photos, but I’m sure folks at Aaitski! really pay attention to printing, as much as to designing.

Offering & pricing

Aaitski! offer is one of the most diverse out there, including men and women styled T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts and kids style tees. Their website also contains a very detailed info on their items, which explains exact sizes, textures and styles, as well as maintenance methods. Prices are  a bit higher, but still reasonable – they charge €25.00 for regular T-shirts, €50.00 for hoodies, €22.50 for kids tees and €27.50 for kids rompers.

Unique clothing for unique people

With such a profiled and deliberate approach Aaitski! represents truly unique, one-of-a-kind independent clothing label that offers much, both in quality of their designs and wideness of items in their online shop. Big plus is they produce clothing for your lil’ ones, too. If you order something from Aaitski! no question you’ll be noticed by everyone, whilst wearing something unique, produced the indie way. I’d only like to see more professional model photos of Aaitski! actual items on their website. Oh, and an actual shop would be cool, too 🙂

What do you think about Aaitski! designs? I’d love to hear your opinion, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. Thank you!

Don’t dress like everybody else – find cool and unique T-shirts for yourself

Finding cool unique T-shirts out there might turn into a real Don Quijote quest for you – sometimes you just feel as if you were fighting windmills! Everybody thinks they offer unique stuff and everybody thinks they wear unique stuff. You might think that by entering some fancy store in nearest shopping mall makes you cool and unique, but it’s just not so because of two main reasons:

  • you don’t want to pay too much for something that is not worth it;
  • you don’t want to wear what everybody else is wearing.

Therefore it’s highly recommendable that you go indie. Following is the list of five independent T-shirt labels picked by us which might help you with your decision to stand out from the rest by chosing your new unique and quality T-shirt!

Confound Clothing – quality over quantity

Confound Clothing is a newly-established clothing company from UK. They feature hand-drawn, digitally colored designs which will surely get you noticed without screaming all over with flourescent colors. Quality T-shirts plus unique designs with nice prices is a triple win situation.

Confound Clothing T-shirt designs

Confound Clothing T-shirt designs

  • Mission – creating designs inspired by anything really: from art, trough music, to the picture of your mamma (not really);
  • Designs – sharks and wolves images can be found almost everywhere. However, guys at Confound strive to make their images different, putting their own designer signature to them by a bit bold  inking and yet delicate coloring;
  • Offer – there are currently three designs to choose from, which is not much, but is certainly enough for a promising start. Designs are  printed onto Froot Of The Loom 100% cotton 165gm T-shirts;
  • Pricing – shirts are priced £14.00 each, but if you choose all three you can get the bundle for only £30.00. Shipping is free in UK, £5.00 in Europe and £7.50 for the rest of the world.

More More More – less is more

More More More is an indie clothing label from Sweden which goes after less is more principle with their designs. Less colors, less details, less aggression, but more fun, more relaxation and more recognition. Sophisticated and direct at the same time, More More More items feel extremely light and classy.

Drippin' and Bandit T-shirts from Bandit collection by More More More

Drippin' and Bandit T-shirts from Bandit collection by More More More

  • Mission – to get people to feel extra pretty and that they can do it with a broad smile (quoted);
  • Designs – based on simple shapes and hand-drawn typography, in nice contrasts to primary colors of garments. As we already stated – less less less is more more more;
  • Offer – More More More has a very nice variety of products – from regular T-shirts and hoodies in both men and women styles, to accessories such as beanies, caps, tanks and tote bags;
  • Pricing – with €23.00 for a tee and €50.00 for a zip-up hoodie (plus €15.00 for a beanie and €10.00 for a bag) prices are reasonable and there are many items on sale (from as low as €13.00).

Peasop Clothing – white + colors = fun

Peasoup Clothing is new T-shirt label from UK which was born out of the desire to wear something different. Peasoup produces fresh and interesting limited edition tees with colorful designs, printed on Gildan fitted T-shirts that are built to last.

Deer and Birds T-shirts by Peasoup Clothing

  • Mission – to help you look better (quoted);
  • Designs – big and carefully colored. They’re eye-catching, easy to recognize and have a common designer signature. Standing out from the rest and a bit of obscurity is Peasoup’s trademark;
  • Offer – there are four designs that come in both men and women styled tees. Peasoup isn’t one of those companies which will flood you with their new designs – they rather focus on quality over quantity (uniqueness included);
  • Pricing – prices are rather appropriate; all tees are £15.00, with shipping prices ranging from £1.50 to £3.50 (worldwide delivery).

Pyknic – clothes good enough to eat

Pyknic started back in 2006 with two friends (The Chef and The Butcher) designing their tees based on culinary recipes (well, not really), which continues to this day. Finding inspiration in Hanna-Barbera-style cartoons and comic illustrations Pyknic designs are both funny and great looking, without uneccessary exaggeration.

Culinary Cadets collection by Pyknic

  • Mission – creating clothes that are good enough to eat;
  • Designs – bold, colorful and comic-styled, Pyknic designs are dominating the shirts, without being aggressive at the same time. Based around culinary topics Pyknic tees are funny and eye-catching;
  • Offer – very varied line with T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, jackets and even shorts and pants, all spiced up with accessories such as toys, bracelets and hats;
  • Pricing – prices are a bit more, but still very reasonable, with much nice sales. New T-shirt designs go for $24.99, crews for $35.00, hoodies for $40.00 and girls dinner denim for $20.00, for example.

Red Choo Choo – timeless and unique designs

With various designers working on their line  and variety in shirt styles – Red Choo Choo offers something for everybody, whilst being environmentally-friendly.

Loin and Muted T-shirt designs by Red Choo Choo

Loin and Muted T-shirt designs by Red Choo Choo

  • Mission – to create timeless and unique designs (quoted);

  • Offer – nice variety of T-shirts in men, women and kids styles, with some items on sale and even a book in the offer. Designs are printed using water based inks on a super soft preshrunk 4.5 oz. 100% combed ring-spun cotton;
  • Pricing – prices are affordable, with tees going for $25.00 – $30.00 (kids T-shirts for $20.00). There are some items on nice sales.

Hope this list helps you with your decission on how to dress cool. Looking good goes hand in hand with picking indie clothing labels as your  shopping option, needless to say you’re supporting small-business and people like you this way.

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!

Although a recent email from David of Chrmng Industries was my first proper introduction to this clothing label – I already LOVE it! Not that they only offer a wide range of items – they also have some cool & great looking designs. I especially love the simplicity in their approach, typical for the indie-style designs, whilst being eye-catching and strong at the same time. Here are the few examples from their men-styled T-shirt offer.

As you can see the colors Chrmng Indiustries are using when designing are basic and the images are hand-drawn (as well as typography), which adds much to the uniqueness of the brand. The images refer to nature (i.e. clouds, animals, trees…), trying to perhaps bring awareness amongst their potential customers of the world that surrounds us, not only being the urban surroundings / cities.

I like the fact that being consious and aware of other peoples needs is very important for this brand, as 10% of each purchase goes into production of the clothes for people who really need it. The prices are also very affordable, with tees going for $20.00. The wide range of items in Chrmng online shop is best shown through kids-style line, which is more than charming, but also through tote bags, hoodies and those handy pins you all love!

For the end I’d like to mention that these unisex zip-up hoodies are priced as low as $30.00, plus the coupon code “teezine” will get you 20% off! With such a profiled and very well targeted approach I am sure Chrmng Industries is on their way to grow rapidly as one of the leading independent clothing brands. I know these are the strong words, however their designs and their offer is there to prove it.
