Loakal just released their Hecho En Oakland design on a women’s racerback tank. So nice.
Available for $26 via fiftyseven-thirtythree.
Note: If you like the design, but want it on a tee, you can get it here.
Our friends at fiftyseven-thirtythree are currently featured on Fab.com. I kind of dropped the ball on this one, as the sale has been going on since Tuesday, April 17 and it ends today, the 24th at 4pm PST. However, that means you still have time to take advantage.
Grab one of their great tees for $19 (versus the normal retail price of $28-36) via Fab.com.
Note: Fab.com is an invite member-only flash-sale site, so you’ll need to be a member to take advantage. If you need an invite, you can grab one here. It takes just a second to register and get going.
Not a tee, but I think this is too cool not to share.
fiftyseven-thirtythree is now selling D Young V’s “Nun of War” piece, which is a 18″X24″, two color hand screen print. Prints are limited to 50 and each is signed.
The woman’s face presented in this print is based on an image D Young V found completely at random. Although her meaning is somewhat unknown in real life, she has taken on an iconic presence (think Obama, Che Guevara, Martin Luther Jr., Mother Theresa) in the post-apocalyptic narrative created by the art of D Young V. The “Nun of War” is a mysterious woman, who continues to find her way into his artwork and has been martyrized by many.
To get even more background on the piece, watch the video below.
“Nun of War” is available for $50 via fiftyseven-thirtythree.
One of the new tees is a new colorway option of their popular “Ambition” design (which is such an incredibly piece).
You can see each of the items below. Both tees are expected to be released in fiftyseven-thirtythree‘s online shop soon after the weekend.
Oakland brand fiftyseven-thirty has released a handful of new tees as of late, including their design “Yellownecks.
The term ‘Yellowneck’ itself is a slang term in this world to describe the physical ramifications of taking a particular drug that boosts confidence, declines fear and worry, but also has a deteriorating affect on an individuals emotional and reasoning capacities. The long term physical effects of this drug are also a yellowing of the skin. A form of this drug is commonly used in this ‘feral’ population causing them to both act and look different from other human beings, hence the term ‘Yellowneck’. In part the inspiration for this idea came from a drug commonly used by Somolian militias to boost confidence during the Battle of Mogadishu (the premise for the film ‘Black Hawk Down’).
The tee is available in both men’s and women’s cuts. The men’s version comes in either natural or yellow ink.
“Yellownecks” can be ordered for $32 via fiftyseven-thirtythree (or visit their shop – 4125 Piedmont Avenue 2nd Floor, Oakland).
Last week I spent an evening at an art walk in Oakland. A bunch of the local businesses in the area were participating in the event, including fiftyseven-thirty-three (5733).
fiftyseven-thirtythree is a local street clothing brand that opened their own Flagship the April before last. I finally got the opportunity to check out their shop and meet Lo, the owner. The shop looks incredible. If you check out our previous post when they opened up, you can get some idea of the work they put in.
fiftyseven-thirtythree apparel is proudly made in the City of Oakland using water based, solvent free inks. No sweatshops, art directors, consultants or teleconferencing are used in the production of our gear. We hope our clothing makes you look good, feel good, get laid…
Lo generously hooked me up with one of my FAVORITE tees, their “Ricky Henderson” design.
If you’re in the Bay Area, be sure to visit 5733 at 4125 Piedmont Avenue, 2nd Floor, Oakland. If you’re not in the area, you can order their designs online. I of course recommend the “Ricky Henderson” tee, which comes in both yellow and green, or the one my friend picked up while we were there, their “Ambition” design.
Thanks to Lo and 5733 for the awesome addition to my wardrobe. Let’s hope it helps to get me laid like they promised.

There’s not a huge selection when it comes to finding quality tee designs as a female. Most are created with men in mind, and then decided afterwards if they’re going to be printed in women’s cuts.
fiftyseven-thirtythree, however, seems to flip the roles a bit; devoting their designs towards the female appeal. There are men’s sizes available for those interested.
For hoodie freaks, though their products are pricey (reaching up to $150), they’re designs are unbeatable. And, to give you a heads up, it looks like Andy at Hide Your Arms was able to land a coupon code for 20% off your purchase (visit his site for the info).
