YEE YEE is a handmade cut & sew T shirt label by Marcos Chin that began in 2012 as a creative extension to his illustration practice. Using the T shirt as his canvas, Marcos combines his love of drawing and fashion to create a celebration of bold, playful and uplifting prints from his studio in Brooklyn to reimagine the everyday Tee into a more unique garment.

My new fabric just arrived today. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Excited to cut and sew it up. #breakin #backinthedayswhenthingswerecool Break it down, now lift it up. Stay tuned, another fun piece is coming your way!

Here's my latest graphic Tee. Things are moving along slowly but surely. It's a 2-colour silkscreen onto cotton jersey that I've cut and sewn. The fit is a bitter slimmer than my previous graphic Tees as well. Spring is coming!

Like everyone I know in New York City, I've been pining for Spring. It's been a very long winter. It's almost April and still cold. When I was 17 years old and on my March break in high school, it was warm enough to wear a short sleeve Tee, and I remembering riding my bike to the basketball court to meet my friends for a game. For those of you who know me, this sounds odd, "Marcos playing sports?" Well, yes, I used to when I was young. But soon enough I gave that up and immersed myself almost entirely into my art. I still do, to this day. As a tribute to Spring, I'm continuing to make new Tees. The photo above is a separation that I'm making for a new graphic Tee. It'll be 2 colours printed onto cotton, and then cut and sewn afterwards. #tigertigerburningbright
