Make the most of our Indian Summer by wearing some of these fresh urban t-shirts that some of London's best creatives have produced.
The staple for any wardrobe, boy or girl, is a white T.
I for one am so fed up of seeing ‘BOY London’ T Shirts everywhere. So to help people stop wearing them, I have some way better London Tee’s for you to buy!
If, like me, you are trying to squeeze the last remaining summer into your schedule, then I have the best t-shirts for you to lounge around the park in.
All are London based creatives and companies so go check them out before it starts raining again!
This guy draws some of the best Illustrations I have seen of famous faces.
I love line drawings and this guy does it so well. I chose Ted’s Draws mainly due to seeing his illustration of my Number 2 man to marry, Steve Buscemi!! He’s a babe. I love him, and I NEED his face on a t-shirt more than I have needed anything else. If Steve isn’t your bag, there are plenty of others so go check out his website because you need to be ready for the next batch of T’s!
I don’t skate, you probably don’t skate, but who the hell cares. Palace are a London Skate team which have created an amazing clothing range. Their logo is one of my faves.
Palace have just opened a new pop up store for ONE WEEK ONLY, so its a perfect chance to go down and pick up one of their limited re-released T-shirts, or something from their new lines.
‘ROLL UP’ is located at 38 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XJ
These guys run a website which is filled with funny articles and other bits and pieces which will make your day a little brighter. They have just created a new line of Tee’s which I think are pretty sweet. Go check out the site and if their humour is your thing.
Y’oh clothing is one of the best streetwear brands to come out of London in recent years.
Kara’s designs are so beautifully put together and when I heard she was bringing out some T-shirts, I was one in the long line to get one. The simpleness of the Y’oh logo partnered with the print of the collection makes them pretty perfect.
I got the one that says ‘Sport London’… cause it makes me look good when I’m trying to jog round my park.. before ending up in the Off Licence.
Nike teamed up with the London College of Fashion, Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon and London College of Communication.
The students met up with athletes like Dai Greene and Paula Radcliffe and created T-shirts influenced by the stories and ambition they heard from them, capturing the journey to greatness.
I love it when businesses understand how important young creatives are.
I don’t know many people who haven’t got a T-shirt party tee. If you have been strolling around East London in the past year, you will have seen one.
Each Tee comes with it’s own little video and with T-shirt Party X Real Gold’s T-shirt making workshop, backed by Hackney City Council last week, there is going to be a lot more to come.
What.. So you don’t like any of these? It’s ok, I guess. I have a couple more suggestions…
If you are looking for something a bit more personal I have the 2 best ways for you to make the best white t-shirt which nobody else will have.
All you need to do is email Best Tees a Jpeg. It can be whatever image you want, and they will print it on a plain white Tee for you and will deliver it to your door.
Take a look at their tumblr above to see what other people have made them print, and then order your own Tee below. The problem is deciding what you want. I have been sat deciding for over three weeks now.
Print Club London has a t-shirt screen printing workshop.
So if you have any of your own artwork you can bring it along on a USB to the workshop and learn the whole process of how to print onto fabric.
You can make the next London t-shirt clothing line so click the link below to see when the next workshop is on..
So there are my t-shirt picks. Please stop wearing your Boy London top and get to know the better side of London creatives.
