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!

Blogging about T-shirts, I get a lot of emails which are pointing to sites with new clothing lines, asking me to check them out. And I always do so. Sometimes I like what I see, other times I don’t. With Rat On The Run, an independent label started by designer Stuart Sibley, I really liked what he has to offer. Iconic images and cartoon-alike logos are the core of his designs. It always looks good on shirts and it sure catches your eye. Here are few samples.

I asked Stuart to present his tee line to all of you, so here’s what he had to say…

“Motivated by the desire to get out of the monotony of the day job I decided to transform work time doodles into real life designs and launch a web based company marketing exclusively designed t-shirts. Soon my endeavours had inspired the company’s name, Rat On The Run, and found a medium for my creative energies.

I guess I could have just jacked in the job and become an artist but I needed my work to be far more direct and graphic and I have always loved the ability of t-shirts for providing this. I believe that t-shirts are the most democratic of mediums for communicating ideas, opinions or simply taste. Anyone can find a t-shirt that expresses themselves or their views and if they can’t, they can take a marker and create their own.

Rat on the Run’s website, www.ratontherun.com, caters for both men and women, selling the t-shirts online.  Screen printed onto quality garments, the iconic designs are a mix of simple typography, visual puns and sometimes thought provoking slogans, but steers away from crass humour and anything deemed to be too commercial. As the number of designs increase and the range of clothing extends, the aim of Rat on the Run is to become a recognised brand, whilst still retaining it individuality and expressive style”.

So, why don’t you give yourself an advice and go check Stuart’s site, maybe you could find something for yourself there.

Hey there, tee lovers!

Well, for my first post I have decided to take a look at some of the crazy and very cool designs there at Split the Atom. As some of you may know, all their designs are printed on American Apparel shirts, which are 100 % percent cotton (plus they look really nice). Designs are screen-printed, using the highest quality methods. I have randomly chosen four of their designs, and if you’re into designing cool tee graphics you can submit your own design there at their site.

As far as the prices are concerned, they are expressed in GB pounds (usually around 15 pounds per tee), which doesn’t come as a surprise if you know it’s an UK online store. I think the price is fair, having in mind you buy DESIGNERS shirts from them.
