PreviewYouDesign (64)Now that the weather is getting colder, I’m almost totally living in my TSS hoodie, hoodies in fact, as I have more than one. So many more. Reason being that apart from being incredibly toasty warm, is that it comes with totally handy little pouchy pockets within the pockets so your phone doesn’t drop out or get lost within many layers of clothing. Such an amazing invention, you’ll never know how you managed before with your phone in your back pocket bum calling random people you really don’t want to be dialling right now!

Oh, and it has thumb holes. The kind you used to make at school and incurring the wrath of the head. These come as standard. Take that!

American Apparel think nothing of a little controversy, and their new range is yet another example of how they like to cross the odd boundary.

This time, however, they have launched a range of clothing including t-shirts, beanie hats and sweatshirts tackling Russia’s discrimination at the Sochi Winter Olympics. The range is called P6 and is named after principle 6 of the Olympic charter which states that ‘Sport does not discriminate on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise’

American Apparel have issued a statement saying ‘The principle 6 campaign uses the language of the Olympic Charter to allow athletes and fans to speak out against this discrimination during the Sochi Games without violating Russian anti-gay laws or violating the Olympic ban on political speech’

The Russian attitude towards homosexuals has been constantly in the news and has caused an enormous outcry all over the world. American Apparel’s campaign has been embraced by celebs the world over, including  Cara Delevigne, here with a p6 beanie hat.

Interesting to see how the Games pan out and whether the protests will drown out the games.

New Year’s Day is traditionally the one where people stay in their pyjamas all day long, bemoaning the bright lights and wondering if their resolution to drink less can start today with the mother of all hangovers (along with the eat less chocolate, exercise more, whilst giving up smoking, sweets, crisps and stress).

Here at TShirt Studio we have very low expectations. Was it Churchill who said “I like to do everything in moderation, except moderation” or was it Groucho  Marx? Still, whoever’s wise words, we intend to stick to that. So, snuggle back into your hoodie and take the rest of the day nice and easy. And have a very very happy new year!

There’s not a lot to say today really. Everyone’s teeth are doing the chattering and those people out ans about who have been brave enough to wear real fur are looking warm yet nervously smug.

The most important thing is getting the layers on, so it’s dig out the thermals and base layers (string vest?) underneath a smattering of normal clothes, a hoodie to keep your head and neck warm and then round it all off with some long lost relative of the musquash family or a fleece-y duvet contraption. Who cares if you can’t move your arms and you move like a dalek, warmth is in!

The Jack Wills

The Jack Wills

If there’s one brand who have cornered the market in teen fashion, it’s Jack Wills. Hugely expensive and hitting its target age group with all the skill and subtlety of an exocet missile, the ‘fabulously British’ brand have redefined the amount of pocket money needed to dress in a sartorially acceptable manner. By deliberately aiming at the uber-privileged youth market, and pricing accordingly, they are well beyond the means of most teens, which makes them exclusive, something to aspire to, and up for someone to do a whole lot cheaper.

The Johnnie B

The Johnnie B

Step in fashionista for the middle classes and old Etonian Johnnie Boden. Johnnie has drawn on his public school background to provide an alternative yet just as authentically preppy  fashion range for the Boden teen. Remarkably similar in ethos to Jack Wills, with the emphasis  on stripes, hoodies, retro printed t-shirts, polo shirts and rugby shirts. Lovely clothing, one and all, and a fair amount cheaper than it’s rival in posh kids wear, but aren’t said kids going to notice the difference? Isn’t the label where it’s all at? Well, to be honest I’m the type of nipcheese who would train a carrier pigeon to post letters if I thought I could save on a stamp, so I’m afraid I might have to pass on the both of them and make my own (and crumple it a bit, obviously!)

Little Blue Riding Hood!

Little Blue Riding Hood!

Absolutely, truly, honestly the last time I mention David Cameron. But I was just looking a  picture of him photoshopped onto a hoodie. Ah well, it was only a matter of time, although I wish I had got there first.And now I can have David in a hoodie, on a hoodie. Perfect. I just love it! I was reading an article in The Telegraph about how the whole airbrushing thingey has left DC with egg on his technologically enhanced face, and I do have to agree. Politicians aren’t generally known for their pretty faces and flawless complexions. Leave that to the supermodels!

Unreal!

Unreal!

I just found the most hilarious series of photos of David Cameron which need to be posted onto a t-shirt immediately. Mydavidcameron.com is a website with a selection of spoof photos of David Cameron in a rip roaring send up of the posters where David appeared to be a little touched up in places. Hilarious, totally subversive and just begging to be gracing a mug, t-shirt or even one of his favoured hoodies. I particularly like the waxy Madame Tussauds one. How creepy is that!

Bad Hoodie!

Bad Hoodie!

After reporting yesterday on Tory hopeful David Cameron’s attempt to make us treat our hoodies with affection they so desperately crave, I have come across an example of just one of the many neglected hoodies roaming the country. Seen here is one of the more aggressive ones. Outwardly rejecting any advances of kindness and charity, plainly this item of clothing is just crying out for love. With time and proper garment care, this hoodie will respond to hugs.

Happy hoodie

At T-shirt Studio we love ALL our hoodies. Ready to be printed on, they are fully able to integrate happily with society.

Well, when David Cameron instructed us to embrace our nearest hoodie I was more than a little confused. As you can imagine we stock many of the things in different shapes, colours and sizes. Were there any particular hoodies to which he might be referring? And had he never heard of the teddy bear? Another item in our stock room perhaps more suited to tending to ones emotional needs.

I'm lonely!

I'm lonely!

Was he not allowed a teddy bear at Eton? Poor man. I was half tempted to courier one of our softest bears down to Westminster just to help him get through the day. But no! Dave was merely encouraging us to wrestle the nearest hooded person to the ground and smother them in love. It seems the nation’s hoodies are just screaming out for affection. I suppose I’d better get myself down to the stockroom and start hugging.

Jade Goody

Jade Goody

Big Brother was however responsible for a new type of reality experience. The slow and painful whittling down of contestants became the norm for TV reality shows. And if you were to throw in a few has-beens who were on the lookout for a new career even better. I’m a Celebrity….Get me out of here!, Celebrity Love Island, Strictly Come Dancing the list became longer and longer with familiar faces doing the rounds shamelessly popping up in reality show after reality show.

Jade Hoody

Jade Hoody

Careers were made, shot to pieces and then remade on the reality TV circuit. And none personified this phenomenon more than Jade Goody. Booed and hissed like a panto baddy, Jade had an enormous amount of abuse hurled at her, but with amazing tenacity kept coming back for more. When she died earlier this year, the outpourings of emotion were not unlike those for Princess Diana. T-shirts, hoodies and banners with pictures of Jade abounded, sending out messages of support.
