Lowdtown Friends & Freaks: MOOKS!

I covered Lowdtown Friends & Freaks recently in Co-Tee TV Episode  17, BUT, I just had to mention these Mooks that were designed by Lowdtown Friends & Freaks founder, Ray Masaki. Ray designed every aspect of these Mooks from the mold to the final packaging. Very neat! He also posted a couple of blogs showing the step by step process involved in making these cute Lowdtown characters (see blog posts here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). 

The Mooks are available for purchase in limited quantities. Only 6 of each of the white and black Mooks were made. They are available now for $25 but you can save 10% by using the coupon code “coty” at checkout.

If you enjoyed these Mooks then you might like this tee from Lowdtwon Friends & Freaks. It’s the Lowdtown logo tee and it features the Mouthcan (the same one that graces the Mook packaging). It’s a one color designed printed on an American Apparel tee and is available now for $21.99. And if you watched Episode 17 then you already know the Ray pumps out quality tees that are tagless and have embroidered seam tags – awesome! And remember, save 10% by using the coupon code “coty”.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Public Radio by Ray Masaki of LOWDTOWN Friends & Freaks and Nathaniel Milburn. Good: Love this design, great collaboration between Ray and Nathaniel, colors work wonderfully together and is a great tee to wear out to the park on a sunny day or one that you could just as easily wear fashionably around town. It’s tagless for itch free comfort and has a screenprinted label, The custom custom hangtag is impressive and the embroidered seam tag adds an extra touch of professionalism normally seen only on higher priced tees. Bad: Not much, this tee should put a smile on your face – if you’re having a bad day throw this shirt on and you’ll begin to feel positive vibes! Price: $21.99 but you can save 10% if you use the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.

Signature Silverware Tee by Pyknic Clothing. Great shirt, I’m not sure what kind of blank Pyknic Clothing uses but I really like the feel of this shirt, it’s very soft, just like the massive print. Really dig the design, love the subtle, classic and mature look of this Pyknic tee. Paired with nice vintage jeans, white dunks, along with a jacket (or blazer) over tis tee and you’re good to go for a night out in the town. Price: $24.98.

Lowdtown: From Concept To T-Shirt

Ray Masaki of Lowdtown Friends & Freaks made a great post on his blog showing the design process of his latest tee. Public Radio is a collaboration between Masaki and illustrator/motion graphics artist, Nathaniel Milburn. In the post, Masaki shows how they went from brainstorming, to refining the art, and of course to the final design. I’ve included a few pictures here but be sure to check out the blog post at Lowdtown to see the entire 7-step process. 

Public Radio will be released on April 1st so be on a look for it! And remember, you can save 10% off your next purchase at Lowdtown with the coupon code “COTY”.
