Bl,est is a fresh, bold and honest clothing label. We take a ‘do it for yourself’ approach to art and business, printing everything by hand with ink sweat and tears.
The Squeaks and I have relocated and are planning some lock-ins to start focusing on the next step for Bl,est. We hope to cut some fat, do some tweaking and generally steer ourselves in the direction we want to take for the future. We were chatting the other day about launching two styles in the next month, so keep checking back for updates, artwork and concepts.
I Think It Might Be Broken?
Calling all Bl,est fans and fanatics! I need testers for the all new, cutting-and-bleeding-edge,
world-beating web store. Here’s a sneak peek-
Oh wait, that looks like shit… never mind! This hand-coded masterpiece won’t be ready for a few more months, but if you’re interested in watching it progress send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I’ll give you access to the test version. All I ask in return is that you give feedback on features as I work on them, and do your best to break things – tough love is needed to make a store that will ruthlessly eat all your disposable income!
Watch Out Bristol, We're Coming
Despite disasters, delays, and abandoned plans, it’s finally happening. We’ve secured a company headquarters, a party pad where fun times will be had. This is a huge deal and we’re very excited!
Ben’s moving up from his home town of Yeovil and I’m heading south from the beautiful city of Birmingham in a classic pincer movement, as you can see in this completely unnecessary diagram.
For the last few years we’ve struggled to get things done while living hundreds of miles apart; now we will have a space to create, to experiment, and to make the best damn tees that we can. For us, and for you. Stay tuned for more details.
You've bloody started without me Ben! See that finger? That's for showing me up in front of everyone. Anyway my new designs are gonna be better than your new designs. Better bring your A game. Dickfingers is back.
Too much hand, not enough ink, plenty of sweat and so many tears. Our break is over and its back to what we love, kicking stuff about and throwing it on the site. It’s been a while, but we are rested, hungry and even closer to the edge than before. Expect new artwork in the coming weeks followed by some kick ass tee’s.
Apologies for the recent lack of news content. We at Bl,est are just taking a bit of time off to sort out some personal things and push our last collection before regrouping and kicking things up again. We have some big plans (our biggest ever) for the coming months, but just have to sort out some stuff first. Make or break time. Bl,est.
Bl,est Flips Pancakes Fat Tuesday Style
Hope everybody enjoyed Shrove Tuesday, we certainly did, until Squeak went berserk with a lemon!
The visual problem with the store has been sorted by Superstar Webmaster (Party Boy) Squeak. Sorry for any problems this may have caused. Out. Benji
Apologies for the mental state of the store, it will be sorted out and running again in no time.
