In spite of the unseasonably good weather we’ve had for the last few weeks, as sure as eggs is eggs we’ll be in for a freeze soon enough. Here’s our guide to keeping warm and staying cool with a hoodie this season.

The winter season is in full swing at the increasingly adventurous Top Shop label. Lads from round your way can give Jack Frost a good kicking in an ultra cool all over 3D geometric print zip thru hoodie from Top Man. 

Not for the faint hearted, or the over 25s! It comes in at a very reasonable 30 of your earth quids. Superb.

A lively looking number for the girls from in-your-face label criminal damage. Buckets of attitude combined with flattering feminine lines make this firey and flirty. An ideal party piece to get you noticed in the coming festive season.

Attention grabbing stuff. It might just keep you warm between the club and taxi too. Bonus.

The boss has been hard at it today. He’s been employing the latest in high tech production planning tools to reconfigure the production line for our Christmas rush. The white sheet of paper is the floor space and each of the pieces of of magenta card are the workbenches, the racking and packing equipment all trimmed exactly to scale. 

It looks more Cbeebies than Tomorrows World, but it’s been a good way to visualising how each part of the production line will fit together without disrupting todays orders.

His mum always said he was a creative boy.

T-Shirts are rarely dull. Inspired by the cult flick and first ever ‘Rom Zom’ (Romantic Zombie Comedy) Shaun of the Dead here’s a new twist on the old Tuxedo tee. Bizarrely the retailer’s ‘People also bought’ feature turned up an action figure of Kurt Cobain unplugged. I didn’t have Nirvana fans down as the kind of folk who would buy action figures. You live and learn.

Following weeks of intense development here at T-Shirt Towers, we’re very proud to unveil our brand new blog.

We’ll be bringing you our sideways glance at the world of T-Shirts, Fashion, and Stuff, served up in bitesized morsels for your delectation.

This blog is just one of a number of new developments we are working on here, but unfortunately we’ve had to put the flux capacitor on hold due to lack of availability of Delorians in decent condition.
