Our two t-shirts (Attack 77 and F.A.C.E.S.) finally arrived from Design by Humans a few days ago. They were ordered on May 10th and shipped using the deceptively named Priority Shipping and arrived on May 28th. Shipping from the US to Japan for 2 t-shirts was only $6.13 so I am definitely not complaining. The packaging they arrived in was very cool, one side looks like foil and the other is transparent in places that don’t have the DBH logo so you can see what’s arrived. Not that it matters, but the address label was upside down when it arrived.
The shirts looked just as I expected. The print quality seems to be high and the images sharp. We do think that the ink is very thick on the shirts which is fine for the ladies t-shirt but for the mens t-shirt … the bottom of the mens t-shirt has a lot of blue ink which makes the tee a little stiff in that area. Perhaps it will soften up after a few washes.
It looks like the image should be going to the seam of the t-shirt which I imagine would be difficult to arrange for different sized t-shirts but it doesn’t go to the seam at the bottom of the t-shirt and crosses the seam under the arm. I don’t think it can be noticed when it is being worn though which is the important thing. The bottom hem on both of the tees have ink right down to the edge and is not exactly smooth to touch. Hopefully the ink won’t come off and leave them looking frayed.
The t-shirt material is very soft as DBH are not shy about telling us but I wonder about its durability. It is a light t-shirt and the hems look like they might lose their shape after a dozen washes but who knows. If you are reading this post a year from now send me an email and I will tell you how it is holding up.
This image to the right is the information provided on the inside of the t-shirt with details of who the artist is and other stuff. Very cool.
Overall we are happy with the purchases and the shopping experience. Would we order from DBH again? If these shirts last and if the right design comes along, the answer would be “Sure! You can never have too many tees.”
