Thank you all for your patience as I continue to work on the design and direction of In My Short Sleeve. If you follow the site closely, you will notice that it’s been a little stagnant as of late. I won’t bore you with the typical, “I haven’t updated because I’ve been so busy with life,” shpeel, but that’s exactly what’s happened.
Another reason why there hasn’t been much of an update is that I’m still working on the direction of In My Short Sleeve. There’s no way that I can compete with Hypebeast or HighSnobiety and I don’t want to. Instead of copying and pasting content directly from brands, I’m working on coming up with a working structure that allows me to curate the content I offer, perhaps mixing different brands of clothing within a single post. Basically, I’m still trying to find my own lane.
I love the relationships that I’ve made through the site. I’ve come across some incredible brands that I wouldn’t likely have discovered.
I will be on vacation next week, but have scheduled some posts to sprinkle onto the site while I’m gone. I look forward to getting back to work on In My Short Sleeve once I get back. Once again, thank you for your patience as I work to make this site valuable for you and the best that it can be.
Hope you all have a great week.
Good morning everyone. I touched on this as we headed into the New Year, but I wanted to thank you again for taking some time out of your lives to check out In My Short Sleeve. I began this site a little over a year ago in an attempt to just have fun and have learned so much. My passion and knowledge for fashion has sky rocked over the year, and that can all be attributed to the amazing artists and designers who I’ve been blessed to come across.
I’ve come to a point where I feel the need to find more specific direction for In My Short Sleeve. As my tastes have evolved over the year, my interests have expanded beyond t-shirts, which I’m sure you’ve noticed since I’ve highlighted outerwear and headwear regularly.
I’m in the middle of working on a complete redesign for the site and will be tweaking how and what I post about. I’m working on creating my own lane in the online fashion publication world and am trying to create a site that provides an offering more intimate and different than that of incredible sites Hypebeast or Highsnobiety. Posts may become a little more sporadic for a bit as I make my way through this process. I appreciate your patience. It’s all in an attempt to strengthen the site and make it more beneficial and entertaining for you.
Have a great week and thanks again for supporting In My Short Sleeve.
I received a really awesome package over the weekend from Scared Panda. If you’re unfamiliar…
Scared Panda makes t-shirts that celebrate different cities and cultures. We want to translate the love for these cities into support for nonprofits who have an impact in our community.
As a result, they give up 10% of each t-shirt sale to a local nonprofit organization. Plus, all of their tees are printed using eco-friendly inks and all of their screen solutions are earth friendly soy, citrus, or mineral based.
In my package was a women’s “DJ Panda” tee. The design was put together by artist Joe Mills and is printed on an orchid tr-blend American Apparel, which means it’ll likely be one of the softest tees I’ll ever own.
Pandas can’t DJ! Or so you thought. This t-shirt is a tribute to all of the amazing DJs not only in Chicago, but around the world. Thanks for making our booties shake, keep on spinnin’.
Scared Panda offers their designs for both men and women. Besides the “DJ Panda” tee, which I’ll be rocking regularly because there are not many seconds of the day where I don’t have music playing, I’m also loving their “Pillow Fight!” design.
Visit Scared Panda and take a gander through their nine tees. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Thanks to Katie and Scared Panda for sending me out the tee! It’s already been worn and is currently in my laundry.
If you’re from or live in San Francisco, or perhaps just a fan, you need to check out 4fifteen. They have some incredible designs, all of which celebrate the beautiful city of SF.
I was fortunate to receive the “4fifteen Bridge” and “Read Between The Lines” designs. They quickly made their way amongst my favorite tees in my closet.
Thanks so much to Bunker Designs, who surprised me with my own “Star Catcher 2000″ tee, which was designed by heavyhand. Bunker Designs is based out of Costa Rica, so it was pretty sweet to find it on my front porch.
In Bunker Designs you will find products designed by and for people like you, people who like to express themselves and look for something truly different.
Bunker Designs released a new design every two weeks. Their designs are created and voted on by their community members.
The print quality on the tee is top notch and I’m really impressed with the overall look and fit of the tee.
Check out Bunker Designs, where you can order designs, or upload your own work and vote on others submissions.
Thanks so much to Bunker Designs!
The design features a grubbing ice cream sundae and the recommended utensils for disposal.
It’s printed on an American Apparel tee, so you know it’ll fit perfect.
Also with the tee was a set of stickers and a Bubble Boy decal, which come with every order. The goodies were cleverly wrapped up nicely as if they were a slab of meat.
Check out Sugar Steak Apparel to see their variety of designs, each of which celebrates either sugar or steak.
Thanks so much to Sugar Steak!

Adam from I Am The Trend recently put together a video discussing some tips on how clothing and t-shirt brands can get blogs to post about their products.
Oh hell yes.
Thanks to Ignoble for sending over one of their art pieces, “Cubicle”, which makes a statement about the faceless corporate employee.
The piece is spray painted onto a piece of cardboard. It’s up in my office as I type this.
