I have been a big fan of Jon Wye’s since nearly the start of this blog. He was one of the first people to reach out and contact me about their products and was even one of the first to send me a product to video review. Of course, I’ve been trying to pay it forward ever since – blogging about his T-Shirts and belts whenever I get the chance (and even stopping by his brick and mortar shop in NYC!).
And now is a great chance to talk Jon Wye. For a limited time, you can score an amazing deal on some awesome Jon Wye tees. For $30 you will get 3 Jon Wye tees. One of the tees is guaranteed to be new, either seen on the website or not yet released. The other two t-shirts are any combination of new, vaulted designs from years past, or tees that we purposed for display/ modeling shoots (laundered of course). As a bonus, all orders will come with a Jon Wye key chain or Pirate Chef sticker. Now that’s a great deal for $30! Go pick up a Jon Wye Time Capsule pack now from the Jon Wye online shop.
I’ve been a fan of Jon Wye since he first contacted me in 2008 when I was just starting out with this blog. He was one of the first guys that saw potential in my website and he even sent me one of his custom leather belts for me to check out and review. I was a newbie to the blog scene back then and so it was a bit more difficult to get products to review than it is for me now. Needless to say, I was blown away by his generosity and by the fact that he was excited by my site and what I was doing.
Since then, I’ve been following the Jon Wye brand and have provided updates here whenever possible. The most exciting news from Jon Wye recently was the opening of his brick and mortar shop in the Flatiron district of New York City. It’s a little boutique that is located inside The Limelight, an old church that has been converted into a three story market space for fledgling creatives and entrepreneurs.
Jon Wye is known for his custom made leather belts and his store has every variety that you could ever want. It’s an eclectic style that will appease anyone who is looking for complimentary accessories that do not comply with the status quo. Jon Wye is much more than the status quo, he is original and his products inspire creativity.
Unfortunately, neither Jon nor his right hand man, Jeff, was there when I stopped by. However, the nice young lady that was manning the store was quite nice. I told her that I knew Jon and that I had blogged about his products in the past. She was more than happy to allow me to snap photos of his shop and I was more than happy to snap away.
The shop itself is amazing. I shouldn’t be too surprised considering Jon has an impeccable eye for detail and perfection. It’s a small space but it is pretty grand. There’s a fireplace in the shop and also a cheeky little painting of Jon that graces you as you walk up the steps to his shop. And of course, you’ll find all of his T-Shirts and belts neatfully displayed against the walls. Located on the top floor, it is as if the Jon Wye shop is the centerpiece of The Limelight. When you first enter the old church and then look up, the bold red and yellow Jon Wye insignia just captures you.
If you are ever in New York City and have any interest in T-Shirts and/or quality leather products, then Jon Wye is a must stop destination. Tell him that I said hi!

Â The new line features some wonderful and witty illustrations featuring everything from ants and robots to squirrels and the ever wonderful weasel. He also has expanded his Pirate Chef line, which is a welcome surprise (i’ve always been a fan of it). Raise your hand if your think Jon should turn Wonder Weasel into the next great animated series.

In other news, Jon Wye, is now available in a brick and mortar shop in the heart of NYC at Bryant Park. “Weâ€™ve built an entire store that looks just like a classic library, complete with FAKE deer head, real working fireplace, bar, red leather high wing back chair, and custom built furniture in a classic library style.” If I was in NYC I’d definitely stop by and say hi! I have to say that the set-up looks totally amazing and luxurious to boot! And that wall of belts is pure awesomeness.

Here’s the newest tee from designer t-shirt and belt maker, Jon Wye. It’s called Pirate Chefs and it’s a play on the old skull and crossbones concept. It’s part of a new series that will include an upcoming Pirate Chefs belt (see a preview of the artwork of the Pirate Chefs belt below).Â
I like it! And I can actually see Jon taking this a bit further and building on this Pirate Chefs line by including other tees and belts. I’m interested to see the rest of the artwork for the belt and the characters that will be included on it. Might some of those characters carry on to a future Pirate Chefs tee? What about a Pirate Chefs belt buckle? There’s so much you can do with this, Jon!
Remember our friend Jon Wye? Sure you do, we featured him in Indie Tee Spotlight #14 and we did a video review of his Homemaker leather belt. Well, Jon Wye is back, this time with a ton of new tee designs!Â
He has got 6 new designs, in both men and women’s tees. Included in his most recent release is a tee that he is calling the “the FIRST stylish Washington, DC.” Here’s what he had to say about the appropriately named Washington D.C. tee:
Most DC shirts come from the National Mall right next to the Hot Dog vendors, and don’t really reflect the city!
This new DC shirt hits the mark. The rigid letters spelling out “Washington” represent the more, well, rigid elements of the city… business… POLITICS! And “DC” along with the outside of the whole graphic are coated in a goo. The GOO is the rest of us, the underbelly, the coating which makes DC fun.
To go along with the DC tee, Jon also released a couple of other fun and neat designs. I especially like that Fighting Rooster and Richie Rich Â tee! You can buy these tees here.
