Tear Away Labels

Starting a t-shirt brand can be an expensive experience. We always recommend starting slowly, with minimal outlay. One such way of saving money early on, is to use tear away label tees. Anvil are our favourite for this. The garments are super soft and the colours bold and vibrant, perfect for retail. The tear away […]

Passion, innovation & ethical practices for the clothing industry. That’s American Apparel. I love American Apparel’s strapline.

Fat American

Not being rude about a person across ‘the pond’ with the title of this post but referring to fatamerican.tv who have 3 new t-shirt designs to look at on their newly redesigned website. I love the model photos taken by Wheat Wurtzburger of homeless people wearing their t-shirts. I bought one of their t-shirts (Sweatshop) […]
