Co-Tee TV Episode 58: RIPT Apparel, Oye Apparel and Monkey Bananas

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear a RIPT Apparel logo tee and review I’m Going Bananas by Oye Apparel, a tshirt company designed with the world in mind. Oye stands for Open Your Eyes, and in Spanish, oye means something like “hey!” in English. Oye Apparel’s mission is to show the world that if you open your eyes and really examine the world around you, you’ll discover that’s it’s really not a bad place to be.

Coty’s Thoughts:

I’m Going Bananas by Oye Apparel. Pros: I’m Going Bananas comes shipped in a basic white mailers but comes packaged with a few notable items such as a chupa chups lollipop and stickers. T-Shirt is tagless and features a screen printed label on the neck area with the brands logo and sizing/washing information. If you enjoy bright, fun colors and large illustrations then you’ll enjoy this T-Shirt. Design is printed on an American Apparel blank  so that is a plus. Very reasonably priced. Cons: The print is not super thick but it’s not super soft, it’s somewhere in between, still, it’s very wearable. Price: $10.00.


RIPT Apparel Logo by RIPT Apparel. Pros: This is your standard logo tee, so if you like RIPT and you like logo only tees then you’ll surely appreciate this shirt. Cons: Unfortunately, the shirt is no longer for sale. As with all RIPT Apparel tees, shirts are available only for a 24 hour period. Price: $10 (No longer available for sale).

    Hey Coty. Thanks so much for reviewing this. I think I actually sent you a second one because I didn’t think the first one had gotten through. And yeah, Avila was a typo. His name’s Mark Alaniz and he was a pretty good friend of mine in high school. I guess if you got a second one you can use it for a giveaway or something if you like. Glad you like the shirt though.

    Hey Dennis, no problem. Was it the same shirt? If so, I can do a giveaway and if not I can feature it on a future episode. Also, I’m looking forward to your upcoming line and changes to your website!
