YMX Flower Clouds Shirt Review


YMX (acronym for YellowMan Expression) was launched in 2009 as an extension of the original, high-end tattoo clothing brand, YellowMan (founded in 2004). Built on an extensive library of original tattoo artwork collected around the globe, YellowMan offers collectible, limited wearable art prints. YMX was created to offer an alternative to YellowMan in a broader, commercial market, while still preserving the authenticity of its origins.

YMX offers multifunctional garments that bridge the gap between athletic and fashion garments. Featuring high-comfort, lightweight MadKool fabrics and detailed, original prints, YMX garments can be worn for athletic use, or for casual wear. As a matter of fact, because of the moisture-wicking properties of the fabric, many people wear YMX in both active and leisure activities without having to change!


YellowMan founder, Peter Mui, started the concept of YellowMan under that premise that skin color should never be a barrier against social status. He should know. Chinese blood, and Oklahoma native, his identity breaks all the usual cultural stereotypes. He's true to all dimensions of his identity, proudly exuding his Chinese heritage on one side and down-home country singer on the other. Tall, broad-shouldered, and overflowing with confidence, Peter Mui can not be packaged into any preconceived category.
And so it is that he thumbs his nose on the derogatory label "Yellow," and instead declares it a badge of integrity and pride for those who dare to be different.

Understanding the value of tattoo art as a vehicle to represent cross-cultural attitudes, Peter Mui pursued the concept of creating wearable tattoo art. For over a decade he has traveled the world, personally knocking on doors of the world's greatest and hard-to-reach tattoo masters to build up an impressive art collection representing the finest in every tattoo style, spanning Japanese Irezumi, Maori Tribal, American Traditional, New School, Biomechanical, and even rare work from a remote Buddhist monk in Thailand. These mastepieces are not only significant in their own right, but they also carry with them volumes of symbolic elements that are rich with cultural history.

If assembling a collection of art from the world's greatest tattoo masters isn't hard enough, translating their masterpieces from flat art to wearable garments is another challenge. Taking advantage of the advances of digital technology, YellowMan has carefully engineered technical fabrics (MadKool) to receive the art with vivid clarity, while also providing powerful wicking benefits found in top athletic-wear brands. Carefully printing and constructing YellowMan garments so that the art falls on the body where the artist intended is a labor of love. But from the onset, Peter Mui has insisted on maintaining a product that not only elevates the wearer of the garment, but also the artist that created it.

Simply put, YellowMan garments are groundbreaking wearable works of art. The range of imagery spans the globe, and the wearability does also. Whether one is hitting the slopes in Aspen, carving the waves in Kauai, slamming city pavement, layering beneath a formal suit jacket, or simply kicking back at home, YellowMan clothing offers versatility, comfort, and stunning wearable art that is rivaled by none. Above all, YellowMan projects Peter Mui's vision of individuality and pride, where cultural, ethnic, and social barriers do not exist.

I was very lucky to get to review YMX's Flower Clouds Long Sleeve Shirt!!

This long sleeve shirt brings together some of YMX's most popular tribal and Asian artwork into fresh colors for Spring. Wear this super-comfortable shirt as a performance base layer or as a fashion piece.

This shirt is very comfortable.  As you all know I am a mail carrier, and I need to be prepared for all kinds of weather.

With the summer sun and humidity, I need clothes that breath.

This shirt is so light weight and airy that you forget its on!!

It helps draw the heat away from your body and keeps your skin cool.  That is a must for me!!

I also like the design of the shirt.  The purple is vibrant, and the design is really pretty.
