Muve is an alliance of two artists, Mike an illustrator from Washington DC and Ryan a photographer rooted from NYC. While studying at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles they decided to start a clothing company. Over the years their ideas and designs evolved and Muve was created.
This east coast brand definitely has a unique style. The designs really are a reflection of their home cities. Guerilla has a streetart vibe, reminiscent of New York City, while DC Metro pays homage to the Capital Beltway, connecting DC, Maryland and Virginia. I love the prominent use of lines in the designs and the randomness Guerilla.
“Our company is dedicated to voicing creative freedom with respect to the sub-cultures of past, present and future. Muve signifies a pivotal motion of change in the direction world culture has gone and takes a step to document where we are going through the collaboration of imagery, wordplay and humor.”
Muve Clothing is worth taking a look at. The T-Shirts are priced at $28 a piece and are available now from the Muve Clothing online shop.

Whenever our pals over at Ugmonk release a new tee, I get ape happy. I’m a huge fan. So can you imagine how excited I was when they recently unveiled three new items, including a new tee design, their first long sleeve shirt, and an … And Then I Woke Up mug! Seriously, I’m already a fan of Ugmonk’s timeless And Then I Woke design, but … a mug! Right, I’m sure a mug is not a big deal to many of you. For me, however, this mug is awesome because 1. I already own the And Then I Woke Up tee in two different colorways (and if Ugmonk were to add more colorsways I’d probably get those as well) and 2. I’m a drink fanatic, a lover of all things liquid and I even blog about drink culture. As you can see, this new mug is kind of a big deal for me.
Enough about THE mug.
It’s About Time is a great addition to the already splendid Ugmonk line. It sort of reminds me of a mashup of Path To Nowhere and There’s More To Life. I like it. As far as that long sleeve goes, pfft! I live in Hawaii – it never gets cold enough here to warrant the use of a long sleeve T-Shirt! Ugmonk, I say bring on the Raglans!
It’s About Time, Half Full and the And Then I Woke Up Mug are priced at $24, $28, and $14 respectively. Remember to use the coupon code COTY09 at checkout to score yourself 10% off your entire order at Ugmonk!

One of my favorite new indie tee brands, Milk & Eggs Co., recently released 5 new tees and I am in love with Draw Your Own Way. In the world of fancy all-over-prints, I breath a sigh of relief whenever I see tees like these: simple, minimal colors, and powerful without being overbearing. If you know someone that likes to trace other peoples work then pick this tee up for them (or at least send them a link) and then kick them in the shin.
Draw Your Own Way is available now from Milk & Eggs Co. for $18, go pick one up today!

I’m a huge fan of Jeff Sheldon’s brand, Ugmonk. He has definitely done some amazing things in the short time that his brand has been around. He recently reprinted one of his earlier, and more popular tee designs, Path To Nowhere. It’s the perfect shirt for anyone that feels like that can’t get to where they are trying to go.Â

One of the great things about running a t-shirt blog is that I get random emails from companies that I never heard of before. This was the case when Yellow Black & White (YBW) contacted me regarding their new line of tees.Â
With eager anticipation I checked out their online store – their brand name had me curious to see what their products looked like. Bright yellow? Abstract art? Lots of lines? To my surprise, YBW had a very diverse lineup of tees, and ultimately I saw 3 out of 7 tees from their online store that I would personally wear: Rock Band, Ampersand (reminded me of Ugmonk’s tees), and Lines. My favorite amongst the three would have to be Lines – it reminded me of the large novelty twirly straws that I used to use as a kid, plus it’s always a treat to try and figure out the meaning of a tee.Â
If you’ve got a minute or two, I would definitely suggest that you check out YBW. You might find something that you’ll like! Also, if the art interests you then check out the amazing artwork of YASLY.
