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.

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!
