Lowdtown Friends & Freaks Winter 2010 Release

Our friend Ray Masaki, lead designer of Lowdtown Friends & Freaks has just dropped his latest line of products from his lifestyle brand. The winter 2010 release from Lowdtown Friends & Freaks feature two new crewnecks in two different colorways, a new T-Shirt and a stunning black leather wallet.

One of the crewnecks features a brand new Lowdtown character, the naked Cleanbean, while the other crew neck features the familiar Insatiable Mouth. Both crewnecks are priced at $30 and can be had in either charcoal or heather gray colors. The lone tee in the Winter 2010 release features Unikid, the little badass of the Lowdtown crew. This shirt was done as a collaboration with illustrator, Attila, of Peachbeach and is available now for $20. If you do decide to buy something (which I thing you should) then be sure to use the coupon code “coty” at checkout for an additional 10% off your entire order!

Incidentally, this is also the one-year anniversary of Lowdtown Friends & Freaks! Congratulations, Ray! And I should also note that Ray designed the upcoming official T-Shirt from Andy of Hide Your Arms, who ,celebrated the 4th anniversary of his site yesterday. That tee should be released any day now so be sure to be on the lookout for that!

Lowdtown Fall 2009 Release

Our buddy Ray Masaki of Lowdtown Friends & Freaks just released his fall line of tees and as always, I’m impressed! He mentioned that he experimented a lot with this line and it really shows. The Black On Black Lowdtown Logo tee uses a specialty gel ink to give the shirt a bit of a shine and that Insatiable tee features an enormously huge print. All of the Lowdtown shirts feature a woven size tag and a Lowdtown woven tag on the bottom left seam. The shirts below are available now for purchase now for $20 with the exception of Bomber which is available for the very cheap $10. For even more savings, use the coupon code “coty” at checkout for an additional 10% off your entire order!

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”.
