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!

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

Red Choo Choo is San Francisco based T-shirt line which collaborates with various artists on creating shirts which you will not wear only today, but for years to come. 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);
  • Designs – sometimes direct, most times delicate Red Choo Choo designs are a bit artistic and even abstract. Careful choosing of colors, both for T-shirts and the designs;
  • 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!

To tell you the truth – I was attracted to this London clothing line because of their name. The term “death before dishonour” can be often heard here and there and you mustadmit it sounds fatalistic. Just like Samurai. The “harakiri” thing these guys had – when they would kill themselves if they felt they’ve betrayed their family or country – is just one of the motives for Death Before Dishonour Clothing designs. Their latest offer was inspired by Buddhism, which is also very important for the Samurai philosophy.

Now, before you conclude something else, I must tell you guys behind Death Before Dishonour are driven by the irony of “blood and guts” approach, “throwing it straight back at anyone foolish enough to embrace thuggery”. Mr. Chris Manning, the designer, says: “this is a play on Sleeping Samurais lose their eyes. The eye of wakefulness is a Samurais greatest protection”.

“The eye shining above the bones signifies that the true state of wakefulness (enlightenment) is beyond the mortal structure of man… i.e. bones & sinew”, adds Manning. By the way – the word “kanji” in Japanese writing says “samurai”, and the title of the design is “Eyeball”. Browsing DBD website, I particulary liked this “Sleeping Samurai” design.

The design is inspired by the classic works of Miyamoto Musashi, one of the greatest Samurai warriors of all times, famed for his duels and distinctive style. He also wrote “The Book Of Five Rings”  – a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today. As you can see, the tee is also available in women style and is screen printed, containing part of the Samurai code inside the garment.  Apart from tees, DBD Clothing offers swatshirts, too, and here’s the one I really liked.

This one features another famous Japanese warrior – Ninja! Quicker than shadow and more quiet than the summer wind, Ninja Skeleton creeps out of the darkness and is about to assassinate you! I really liked the graphic novel Noir style inspired design with dynamic and highlighted shadowing. This sweat is of heavyweight high quality combed cotton. Just like this DBD Clothing logo hoodie, which is among their sale items now.

Apart from the very nice designs and the broadness of their apparel, I’ll make one annotation to DBD Clothing; they should perhaps redesign their website. I don’t wanna say it’s not easy to navigate, but this version makes a slight unjustice to such fine looking items.

And so, all of you tee Samurais, before you go and sacrifice your life for some higher purpose, please make sure to check Death Before Dishonour online shop. And please off yourself after your order arrives.

Being truly original and “on your own” among all those indie T-shirt / clothing labels out there may turn into a search of the Holy Grail for some. Fortunately, NY-based clothing line Nieuw Haarlem seem to found their own signature – so to say – creating dynamic, colorful and history / art inspired designs, which for sure puts them among one of the best young labels in that category (at least that’s my opinion).

Rather than creating tons of merchandise items destined to lay on their shelves, these two brothers and their sister – who make Nieuw Haarlem – decided to create universal designs which are suitable to wear almost everywhere. You can easily see that Nieuw Haarlem designs are based around symbols / icons, so I’m sure each one of them have it’s own story (some of their slogans  are “Every Man Must Act In The Rhythm Of His Time”, “Such Is Wisdom”, “The Ancient Proverb”). In spite of using a lot of colors, I especially like that they’ve decided not to go “flourescent”, like so many other tee labels nowadays, but rather use somewhat “washed” colors – at least their shirts don’t look like they’re going to eat you.

Among regular tees, guys at Nieuw Haarlem also create hooded sweatshirts, and hope to one day set up a women line. The good thing is – they now have a sale, so you can spare a few bucks on each item in their online shop.

I agree with Jeff Peart, the man behind 1of7 limited edition clothing line, when he says that major clothing lines are too far removed from the artist or designer and it was this distance that diluted the final product. That’s why he started 10f7in the first place, with the principle of working closely with artists to ensure that their entire artistic vision is encapsulated on the clothing, with nothing being lost during the process.

Product1_SDProduct5_LP1of7 will not release an item until the artist is completely satisfied. “We create only seven pieces per artist, per series”, says Jeff. ” One stays with the artist and one stays with 1of7.  The final five are made available for sale, thus providing our customers with a truly unique piece of limited edition fashionable art”.

Product2Some of the artists 1of7 is involved with are from Portland area: Sean Denniston, Squid Vicious, Sherry Peart, Kristen Beatty, Doug Sabbertoothe and Liam Paquin. As each series is released the range of artists will become wider. Jeff informs: “For example, by series VI, I plan on having artists from around the US. For Series VII, I want one artists from each continent”.

Product2_SPSo, if you’re an artist and you’re interested in joining 1of7 artist community, contact Jeff by all means!
