I think the Iguadon was actually discovered by a palaeontologist in my town originally.

Edit: I can't unsee that dinosaur doing a duck face and throwing a "V"

Pricey at £70 but it's a proper bit of barbershop kit and barely leaves any mess to clean up.


I'm getting to the point of needing this sort of thing. Let me know if it's up to scratch after a few uses.

It's brilliant, actually just feels like you've just wet shaved your head it's that close. Your hair needs to be buzzed short to begin with though, preferably with unguarded clippers at least, or it'll be too long to cut. I could only wet shave my head once a week maximum otherwise I'd always get a rash at the back of my head/top of the neck but I've been using this every 2-3 days and it's been fine.

Never really occurred to me to use one of these to shave my whole head until my barber did it and recommended it.


Sorry I completely missed this, thanks for the opinions.

Former is generally a screenprint/ink 4 colours total, depends

Former more labour intensive, cheaper in volume, appears more artistic

Latter better colour definition/details and gradients (e.g. photos), cheaper in low volumes but catching up with screenprint in terms of economy very fast. As or less durable, sometimes more.

tl;dr full colour images are worth more than that gooseberry fool "Agent Smith" tee which is worth in print terms about 10p. Because of this they will generally be produced in lower quantities to mitigate risk.

In consumer terms process colour / screenprint and DTG are basically the same. It's the single colour prints that aren't really worth much money at all.

But who cares how much it costs to produce if the end result is shite

Nobody, but it seems people will be taking slim picking cos it's uniclo innit.

I could make any of those tees in my sleep, I just don't have the rights.

Except I do because for personal use it's fine lol

Guys email me some gooseberry fool you want on a shirt instead of supporting fast fashion, seriously. I'll do organic for basically free if you want, quote code GRCADEISGREAT

The tie dye (white with blue and yellow) and repeating pattern (white with green and black) ones are quite nice.

Oh and re corona, Unqilo are on it :P

How long did it take between ordering and it being delivered? I ask because I hadn't ordered from them in AGES and so they sent over an offer and the tees arrived the same week! That's ridiculously fast for them as one of the tees was a time limited design which, back when I ordered regularly, would take a good few weeks to arrive. So they've either improved their order/print/post times, or they're just trying to sucker me in to becoming a regular again through excellent but unsustainable customer service.
