I recently got the opportunity to interview Sutsu‘s lead designer. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Sutsu, it is an environmentally conscious boardwear brand based in the UK. I don’t regularly participate in any boardsports, but that doesn’t stop me from loving the brand’s products. All of the designs in the shop are quite simple, and something about that is very appealing. Let us now learn more about Sutsu and its lead designer!

SutsuThank you very much for taking the time to answer a few questions for the readers of Loving This Tee. Could you start us off by telling us about yourself and what you do at Sutsu?

I am based in London and am the designer for Sutsu. Although not classically trained in design, I have to some degree taught myself about design and what I want to achieve from it. I screen printed my first T-shirt back in my teens which seems a distant past. I left university with a degree in anthropology, quickly followed by a diploma in sound engineering which led to various jobs including running a couple of bars, so not what you would call a normal graphic background. I did always keep my eye in by having an A5 book and pen in hand so I could scribble when the mood takes me… Read the rest of this entry »

Yema Yema released two new tees this month, and one of the designs is one that I have been waiting to see printed. “I Want a Tattoo” shows a Yema-style character with a sweet tattoo sleeve, and it’s now available for purchase in the Yema Yema shop! I don’t have any tattoos, but I’m always admiring others’ tattoos. Maybe one day I’ll get one myself, but that could be a long while from now. For now, I’ll just be happy wearing a t-shirt with a character full of body art.

Yema, tattooYou can purchase “I Want a Tattoo” at the Yema Yema store for $13 (Yeah, it’s on sale!). Be sure to also check out the other great products while you’re there. You won’t be disappointed!

genetic, double helixToday I’m going to be doing a review of a shirt that I got from doubleHelix. DoubleHelix is a science inspired clothing company based in San Francisco, CA. When I first heard of the brand I was immediately drawn in by the nerdiness of its art direction.

genetic coding, genes, double helixGenetic Coding” is one of the nine designs available in the men’s section of the shop. There’s also a women’s version of this design, but the genetic coding is in pink instead of green. I’ve always had a soft spot for cool designs involving barcodes. This t-shirt design definitely looks great, and I love how the bright green pops out against the black. Read the rest of this entry »

Time to review another tee! A while back, I got a sweet package from Angry Spade. All their designs involve spades (makes sense, right?). I will be reviewing the army colorway of a design called “Spider Webs.”

It’s gearing up to be review season at Loving This Tee, or at least I’m going to try to make it review season, seeing has how I haven’t had time to write them in a while and I have plenty of shirts to talk about. So let’s start things off with a sweet t-shirt from 604Republic called “Jeeves3000.” If the artwork style looks familiar, then you may not be surprised to hear that it’s by Alex Solis (alexmdc). Can I just say that he’s a fantastic illustrator? Because he is.

604 Republic, robot, Alex Solis, alexmdcLet me give you the lowdown on 604Republic. It’s a Canadian company started by a former co-founder of Split Reason, a popular t-shirt shop for geeks and gamers. When it launched in September, 604Republic’s mission was to be the best and biggest place to buy art hoodies. Things have changed in the past few months, as 604Republic is now a place for geeks and is focusing on pop culture from here on out.

604Republic, robot, Alex Solis, alexmdcJeeves3000” is one of the shirts from the very first 604Republic release, so that’s why it’s not more pop based. It’s actually my favorite design out of all the ones available right now, which makes it quite a treat for me to review! Read the rest of this entry »
