A T-Shirt Printed by Leo Belik

Here’s a cool video that I stumbled upon on the blog of the German T-Shirt contest site, A Better Tomorrow. The two and half minute video was done by Leo Belik and shows T-Shirt preparation and printing using an automatic carousel machine. I never get tired of seeing T-Shirts go from start to finish.

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.

The Jon Wye Workshop

If you’re a regular reader of this blog then you know how much I dig the gear that Jon Wye has been pumping out. For the uninformed, Jon Wye is a belt and t-shirt designer based out of Washington, D.C. If you need a quick review of Jon Wye then I suggest you check out Indie Tee Spotlight #14 for an interview that I did with Jon, Glorious Nonsensities Episode 1 for a video review of one of his custom belts and of course, head over to his website to buy Jon Wye stuff!

Also, Jon recently posted a video on his website that introduces his brand and shows off his Washington D.C. workshop. He has got a lot of cool machinery!

Also, it’s Attack of the Coupon Codes time, you can save 5 bucks on your next Jon Wye order with the coupon code “5up”. 

Coty Loves Threadless #1

I’m experimenting with Seesmic! Every week I’ll be reviewing the new batch of tees that Threadless releases. I’ll only be doing the new releases and not reprints, and won’t touch the Selects or Typetees (yet). If you’re not familiar with Seesmic, it’s a great little video site were you can easily record videos and people can reply to your videos with video replies. I’ll try and do these videos every Monday, to coincide with the new releases. 

The videos will be pretty raw, and pretty fast. I’ll spend about a minute per tee and I’ll give my thoughts on the tee. I’ll be rating the tees with either 1 wink for being a good tee, 2 winks for being an awesome tee that I would wear and 0 winks for a tee I would never wear. 

So, here’s the first episode – let me know what you guys think! PS: Just click on the design image and it’ll bring you straight to that designs product page!
