Here is a list of the best independent t-shirt brands from the Boston area. All of these brands show an excellence of quality in their designs, the t-shirts itself, and their influence on the independent t-shirt industry. This list is no particular order. Vicious History The art is just so badass. I myself am a happy customer because their t-shirt are top quality. It’s amazing that a brand is...
Pre-Order Regan Smith Clarke’s New Collaboration
Another simply beautiful collabo comes straight to us from Regan Smith Clarke and Thrillist, 2 of Boston’s famous natives. As with the t-shirt alone, I’m impressed. It represents Boston’s most distinct “Landmarks” being the Boston Celtics, the TD Garden, and a very popular restaurant, Scotch and Sirloin. As of now this shirt is on pre-order for $25. Enjoy
Tee-of-the-Week (Jan 26th)
This weeks tee-of-the-week goes to The Bear Necessitee by Stay Glassy Apparel. First off this has to be one of the most adorable t-shirt I have rested my eyes on to date. The artistic charm of the design instantly reminds me of the good ol days when I read my favorite picture book. The design is sketchy, cute, and very straight forward with the message, stay glassy. The only thing better than...
Only Time Will Tell (White) - Heroine Clothing
As soon as Heroine Clothing released news on their brand new line dropping a while back I knew it was going to be even more refreshing and original than the previous release. I’m actually a huge fan every single t-shirt on this release but found the 2 “Only Time Will Tell” shirts were the stars of the release. So I got my hands on the white version and definitely not disappointed. The art is...
The UTee Interviews Awaken Company
UTee: What kickstarted you into making your own brand/company? Awaken: I’ve loved art since I was around 4 years old. For as long as I can remember drawing and being artsy has been a day to day thing for me - really it’s just a way of life now. I had really early memories of telling my mom and dad “I’m gonna be an artist when I grow up” - and thankfully, look...
Frank The Tank - Johnsaurus
What can I say about this t-shirt? The perfect mix of intensity and humor. The intensity coming from the background and T-Rex on the top, then when you work your way down you see the man with the sweet stash on the bottom sitting the the tank named Frank scared to death, lol. When you first see the Johnsaurus store front you would assume that they are a sub-par brand but you couldn’t be...
Tee-of-the-Week (Jan 18th)
This weeks tee-of-the-week goes to Space Wolf! by Science Friction. This shirt has been floating around a bit and I just realized how twisted and unique this t-shirt is. And it doesn’t get any better! As far as this brand goes I cant wait till they drop some new t-shirt because I really do like the direction they are going in, this crazy twisted design has never really been done before...

New Year, New Everything for Wolves Vs Lions
NEW T-SHIRT! To get things started WVL just released a new t-shirt called Don of the Jungle which adds a nice twist to their collection of tees they already sell. This is a very large print compared to their other tees they have but for some reason it meshes very with the rest of their collection. Well there is nothing cooler than a big cat suited up and smoking a cigar. As with their other tees...

Tee-of-the-Week (Jan 14th)
This weeks tee-of-the-week goes to Seeker by Abstruse Apparel. I’m back and never leaving again so lets get to it. I first heard of Abstruse Apparel when they first followed me on twitter and since then very much wanted to talk about this tee they have on pre-order. Abstruse has a very photographic feeling to most of their t-shirts which always has a very vintage feeling, but never a bad...

Brand New Site and T-Shirt by The Editions
I’ve been a huge fan of The Editions’ site but with this upgrade my mind is just blown. Along with this site improvement they have added a red and black “The Editions” logo t-shirt that pairs well with two of their long sleeves. The long sleeve waffle tees come in white and a light purple with the same design as their new shirt and sell for $16.99 a pop and their new tee goes for $15.99, what...
The UTee Interviews Subeco
What kickstarted you into making your own brand? My goal was to start a brand that was environmentally conscious. The lack of choices for people who want to take a step in the green direction. It all started when I went to buy an organic shirt at a local retail store. I didn’t find any there at all. So I went to 5 other stores that day looking and couldn’t find a single organic...
New T-Shirt by Thoraxx Apparel
From across the pod come a new t-shirt by Thoraxx Apparel called Sculpture T-shirt. I see Thoraxx going into a new direction and I’m liking this t-shirt as opposed to their other ones. I hope Throaxx stays on this “photographic” direction because it really fits with them and they still manage putting their logo and name without messing up the entire tee. You can pick it up for only 10£ which is...
Vicious History Winter 2011 Line
Vicious History just released 3 freshly remade tees and a viciously historic zip up hoodie! So above and below is their very first hoodie, an original design by Craig Robinson. This is printed on a zip up American Apparel hoodie and on the front is a new Vicious History chest logo. Below is an upgrade to their Wild Wolves tee. Its back this time but in black and still is printed on American...
Tee-of-the-Week (Jan 4th)
The very first tee-of-the-week of the year goes to FIlter Tee bySimplified Clothing. Simplified Clothing is one of the very few brands around that really do make the simplest clothing while at the same time relaying a very clear and bold statement. This tee came along with 2 other excellent tees that relay the same message. This is a “filtered” image of a classic Marlboro Cigarette package. So...

Ghetto Love Tee & Unknown Tee - Dead Bury Dead
With a brand like Dead Bury Dead it is close to impossible to select a t-shirt of theirs to buy but lucky for me I won 2 and both were random and I could be happier with what I won. Especially due to the fact that one of them isn’t one sale on their for some reason. Anyway both tees feel incredibly soft and the print is a bit heavy but you...
