Hear that sound? It’s the growing hum of online chatter about YMX.

By now you have either heard about YMX, bought and worn YMX, or joined the YMX FaceBook community. Or perhaps you have stumbled onto one of the many, many blogs that are reviewing YMX athletic/lifestyle clothing. This fast-paced trending should not come as much of a surprise, though, because we’ve known for a long time that once a person wears YMX they are a YMXer for life!

Perusing the hundreds of comments about YMX on blogs across the net we decided to compile the top three threads we are seeing and expound on them:

1) PRICE:  Perhaps the most frequent comment about YMX is the price. Many love the appearance of the product, but feel it is out of their price range.

The truth about the price of YMX apparel: YMX clothing is packed with original art, high-quality performance fabric, and silky-soft comfort. YMX garments are extremely durable and can be stretched, abused, and worn hard while still holding shape and quality. The fabric and prints offer multi-use properties, so you can wear your YMX in action or casually (or both, without changing!). The fabric doesn’t retain moisture, odor or wrinkles, and even offers UV protection. YMX makes every possible effort to include all of these benefits at the lowest possible cost to consumers. YMXers would all agree that removing any of the cherished benefits to lower the cost would be the end of a good thing. In any event, price-concerned customers would be hard pressed to find any other brand that offers the same quality/benefits at a lower price point. In short, YMX is priced at great value!

2) DURABILITY: Because YMX garments are made with luxurious, silky and lightweight fabrics, customers are often concerned about its durability and are afraid to wear it too much.

The truth about the durability of YMX: YMX garments look and feel delicate, but they can be worn hard! Stretch them, sweat in them, ball them up and jump on them. They hold up, hold their shape, don’t retain moisture (and odor!), and are hard to wrinkle. And yes, you can machine wash and dry them!

3) TOO NICE TO SWEAT IN: Sweat-prone athletes, like runners, are often concerned that YMX garments are too luxurious to sweat in. Why wear something so nice when it’s just going to mop up with moisture and get tossed to the side when their activity is done?

The truth about sweating in YMX: Perhaps many people are conditioned into thinking sweaty activities limit them to wearing basic rags. YMX is changing that mentality and believes you should have the choice to look and feel good at all times!. With YMX you can sweat away while you run, workout, or whatever you like to do, and when done your YMX garment will have expelled the moisture with little to no effect. Go sit down somewhere and get a smoothie, or hang out with your friends. They won’t shun you.

A photograph by Jared Teska features YellowMan's mesh Serenity Shirt.

If you’ve visited yellowman.com lately, a spectacular photograph of a model wearing a mesh “Serenity” tattoo shirt will certainly have caught your eye.

The style section of today’s New York Times featured a story on Disney as a “Lifestyle Brand” (Disney by Design by Brooks Barnes). The article included a nice picture of two special edition YellowMan shirts made for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Readers of the article wouldn’t know that, though, as the article did not include a credit, or point them in a direction where they could get one of the “Hipster T-shirts”.

So, if you want to find them, we’ve provided you with some information here.

Pictured in the article are two shirts, one is Cursed Ship by tattoo master Filip Leu, and the other is Pirate’s Code by New Zealand’s Roger Ingerton.
