In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear a vintage San Miguel Tee from the Philippines and review the Mark Twain shirt from Spindustry Clothing & Co., a brand started by Colter Bergh in 2004. Spindustry Clothing began with just Â 1-color screen printing press and now their tees can be found in select retail locations throughout California.

Mark Twain by Spindustry Clothing.Pros: I’m not sure what kind of blank they used but the shirt is super soft and smooth on the skin. I really like the feel of this tee, more so than the feel of American Apparel blanks. The front print is huge, covering nearly the entire front – perfect for those that prefer jumbo prints. Shirt is tagless and features a screen printed label instead for itch free comfort. Comes packaged in a custom cardboard box and wrapped in custom wrapping paper. Â Spindustry Clothing even included a vintage comic book from the 1970′s with the shirt. Â Cons: I don’t really care much for the elephant logo on the back of the tee. I think that I might have been better if it had been of part of the inner neck label print.Â Price: $25.
These pics from NIWL made me go WHOA! Looks like they are moving a lot of tees! It might be because they are having a super sale right now at the NIWL store – all of their tees have been marked down. Even their new tees have been makred down from $20-$22 to $14-$15. I think I’ll have to pick up Wizard of Wonder Land now! If you’re a Blink-182 fan then you might want to pick that one up to.Â
Why the sale? Well it seems that Darren and Kass (check out Indie Tee Spotlight #6 for more information about them) are moving to the Philippines and will be living there for a few months. Not to worry though, they have promised that they will continue to do NIWL. Good luck Darren and Kass!
“We will still be doing NIWL, and no shipping isn’t going to be an insane amount. We think that it is only going to cost a little bit more but not to much. It is a big move and we are really excited. Nothing is finalized yet but it seems like it is going to happen some where around June. We are gonna do Warped tour in Pomona then leave to the Philippines right after.”
Popular tee designer, AJ Dimarucot aka in the tee design world as collisiontheory, has started a new venture with his wife, Audrey – producing “quirky clothes for kooky babies!” The new brand, googoo&gaga, specializes in onsies with “all over” prints. They currently have ten designs on their site and are only available “locally” at the moment. So unless you live in the Philippines, you won’t be able to get your hands on these, just yet.Â
They use sublimation printing to achieve an “all over” look that is super soft for the baby to wear. No harsh ink rubbing against your baby’s skin which is a plus!Â
