I sunk your battleship

25 May 2015

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, today dresses-and-travels proudly presents this super rad beanie by „I sunk your battleship.“ As you guys already know I´m always on the hunt for cool indie labels and therefore I was pretty excited to discover “I sunk your battleship”; or short ISYB. The British newcomer brand actually carries menswear only but if you ask me their classic T- shirts and hats can also be worn by women. One of my favourite things about their products is that they are actually made in Britain and we all know that this is pretty rare nowadays. The design of their clothes is very minimalistic yet unmistakable; featuring naval motives like their trademark flagman on my beanie. If you have no clue about naval signs (like silly me) you are probably wondering what that little man is doing there with the flags. Browsing their website I just learned that there is something like a flag alphabet, called semaphore, which allows seaman to communicate with each other; pretty much like a morse code. ISYB uses these signs to conceal messages on their shirt from landlubbers like me. I LOVED secret messages and languages as a child and they are still pretty exciting to me so obviously the first thing I did was trying to decipher some of their shirts. Then I saw that they provide translations. If you´re intrigued now (and I bet you are because SECRET LANGUAGE, HELLO?!?!) you should definitely head over to their website and find out more about this.  After getting a bit carried away here; I still want to tell you a few things about my beanie. It´s made of a super thick and warm fabric and you can definitely feel that it´s high quality. I have LOADS of beanies and this is seriously the best I have so far. The design is simple but cool and it´s definitely a must-have for streetwear lovers and hipsters (not a hipster ;) After taking these photos I went shopping with my friend so I was basically wearing this for about 8 hours straight because I really didn´t want to take it off anymore. AND it was really sunny. (Does anyone think this is weird btw? Do you wear beanies in summer?) So all in all, if you like buying sustainable, if you want to support local indie brands, if you look hot in streetwear OR if you always wanted to wear a shirt with a hell lot of insults without your grandma realizing, this is the brand for you! 


Beanie - ISYB (get it here)
shoes - Vans
skirt - New Look

Guten Morgen meine Damen und Herren, heute präsentiert dresses-and-travels dieses krass-coole beanie von „Isunk your battleship.“ Wie ihr bestimmt schon wisst bin ich immer auf der Jagd nach tollen Indie-labels und deshalb hab ich mich ultra gefreut als ich von „I sunk your batleship,“ kurz ISYB, gehört hab. Die britische Newcomer Marke vertreibt eigentlich nur Männerkleidung aber wenn ihr mich fragt kennen klassische T-Shirts und Mützen ja kein Geschlecht. Einer meiner Lieblingsfakten über die Marke ist definitiv dass sie in England produziert was heutzutage ja eher eine Seltenheit ist. Das design ist sehr minimalistisch aber unverkennbar; mit maritimen Motiven wie ihrem Markenzeichen dem „flagman.“ Wenn ihr von dem ganzen Seemannsgarn keine Ahnung habt fragt ihr euch sicher was der kleine Mann da eigentlich veranstaltet mit seinen Flaggen. Nach ein wenig Spurensuche auf der ISYB Website hab ich dann rausgefunden dass es sowas wie ein Flaggenalphabet gibt, namens Semaphore, mit dem Seeleute über Distanz kommunizieren können. Außerdem benutzen die Köpfe hinter dem Label diese Zeichen um geheime Nachrichten auf ihren Shirts vor uns Landratten zu verstecken. Als Kind war ich verrückt nach solchen Geheimsprachen und irgendwie sind die immer noch total spannend für mich also hab ich direkt mal angefangen die Shirts zu entziffern. Dann ist mir aufgefallen dass die Übersetzungen dabei stehn. Wenn ihr jetzt total gespannt seit (und ich wette das seit ihr weil GEHEIMSPRACHE, HALLO?!?) dann am besten gleich bei ISYB nachschauen und mehr rausfinden. Nachdem ich mich wieder mal verquatscht hab noch ein paar Worte zu meinem Beanie! Es ist aus einem sehr dicken Stoff und man merkt einfach dass es hochwertig ist. Ich hab Unmengen Beanies und das ist ganz ehrlich das Beste bisher. Das Design ist einfach aber cool und auf jeden Fall ein Must-Have für Streetwear Liebhaber und Hipster (*kein Hipster.*) Nachdem wir die Bilder hier gemacht haben, bin ich mit meiner Freundin shoppen also hat ich das Teil so ca 8 Stunden am Stück an weil ich es einfach nicht mehr ausziehen wollte. Und das obwohl es super sonnig war. (Findet ihr das eig komisch? Tragt ihr Beanies im Sommer?) Also mein Fazit ist, wenn ihr gerne kleine Marken unterstützt, wenn ihr einfach heiß ausseht in Streetwear oder wenn ihr schon immer Mal ein Shirt mit nem Haufen Beleidigungen tragen wolltet ohne das eure Oma es checkt, ist das eure Marke!

  11. Cute outfit! As far as I'm concerned all clothes are unisex :)

    Funny little story: I'm from Canada and all of our clothes seem to come from Europe or China. When I was visiting GB a couple years ago, the one shirt I bought was actually made in the United States. A was a little bit disappointed but amused by the irony.
