In case you hadn’t noticed The Great Gatsby is back in the cinemas again with Leonardo Di Caprio playing the doomed title role alongside his Daily Buchanan, in this instance Carey Mulligan. Given that the director is Baz Luhrmann of Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet fame the film is not surprisingly rather stylised with much of the fashions that …

Andy Warhol Pepe Jeans Campbell Soup Jacket

Ok, so the Pop Art spotlight is very much on Roy Lichtenstein at the moment what with his retrospective at the Tate Modern in London. But when it comes to a style/art crossover then there’s only one pop art name that counts, and that’s Andy Warhol. There are literally hundreds of Warhol’s prints available on t-shirts – check this lot …

The 12 most iconic rock and roll band t shirts of all time

There was a time when the only people who would wear band T shirts were metal heads still loyal to their ageing rocker heroes, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin fans, who a decade on hadn’t bought any other new items of clothes, and Teenage Fanclub fans who’d give them a quick iron and pop them on each time their favourite Glaswegians hit …

This is what a £60,000 t-shirt looks like

I once bought a vintage second-hand Prince Purple Rain tour t-shirt on eBay for £80. It felt like the most extravagant garment I’d ever bought at the time at a score short of £100 (and even more so when it actually arrived, stained and moth-eaten as it was).

Giveaway: Win two shirts of your choice from t-Lab

We recently came across this great new men’s t-shirt label, t-lab. We loved their distinctive style mixing art, design and popular culture. The shirts overall have a punchy ‘less is more’ graphic style and rely on the use of strong colours and shapes. We loved how the semi-abstract graphics invite the viewer to ‘de-code’ the shirt’s message, while clearly drawing …
