All I’ve got to say is: WOW. Is this the next Three Wolf Moon?
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!

If you don’t think that the Carnivore vs. Veggie tee is awesome then you are not human! As I was perusing MNKR’s offerings, this particular design caught my eye. It’s an obvious play on those vintage boxing posters, which I am also a fan of. This California based maker of crafty tees definitely has some interesting designs. The Future Is Now features nice type treatment and Salon Lady is vintage chic.
MNKR has been around for quite some time now, 7 years to be exact. However, they just received a Registered Trademark for MNKR. Wondering what MNKR stands for? Looking for a name, the founder decided to go with one that start with the same letter as his own name, which is M. He went with MNKR, which is short for “moniker”, which is another word for “a name.” Interesting, huh!
You can find MNKR at Unique LA in Booth 208.
During the next few days Iâ€™ll be featuring the awesome clothing brands that will be setting up booths at Unique LA, an independent design and gift show that will take place on April 24th thru the 25th at the California Market Center.
Now here’s a pretty cool shirt from our the guys at Busted Tees. It’s called Laser Pointer and it kind of reminds me of something that I’d see from the like of Glennz Tees. It’s a simple illustration with lots of wit. The shirt features a hound that has Superman-like laser eyes, because really, that’s what every dog needs – Superman-like laser eyes! I bet he can hunt pretty good with those eyes, don’t you?
If you like Laser Pointer, you can pick it Â up from Busted Tees for $16.99.
A couple of weeks ago I featured All For One Clothing, a brand that was started by animal enthusiast Brandon Hopkins. Sadly, one of his doggies passed away. To commemorate Tiggers life, he is having a sale at All For One Clothing. You can save 25% off your entire order by simply using the code “tigger” at checkout. All proceeds from this sale will go to charity in her name.Â
Here are two tees that I dig from All For One Clothing!
Such a cutie. If I could, I’d take her to watch Disney’s “I,Â Chihuahua” on opening night. She’ll have to wait for the DVD!
