Literary T-shirts

I got an email the other day asking if I'd like to help make literature fashionable - and, being the fashionable chap I doubtless am, I said yes.

It turns out that The Affair make great book-themed T-shirts, and offered to send me a sample.  How lovely, thought I, and the other day my T-shirt arrived.  I have to admit that it probably isn't 'inspired by my favourite books' (as their tagline goes) because I've never heard of Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea, but I do love the T-shirt.  The fabric quality is amazing, such a nice light cotton, and the design is great.  Oh, and they're sweatshop-free, which is a brilliant bonus.

This is very much not what I look like.

For a full list of the T-shirts they make (which I think are only for men, but I could be wrong) see here.  There are some great books represented - Picture of Dorian Gray, Macbeth, Animal Farm etc. - and they'd make great gifts for the man in your life (and, if you're a man, that man could be you.)

Thanks, The Affair, I love my tee!

    1. I love so many of them! But why oh why do they have to be in the US... and pricey. I bought a few tshirts from threadless.com a while ago, and got stung for so much in customs that I learnt not to import them again...

  2. What fun! Why are all the ones I like sold out, and why don't they do them for girls (or wimmin even?)!

  3. The Absinthe tee looks pretty cool but I would have a hard time resisting the urge to get out my fabric markers and colour it in.

  4. These are awesome! My son would definitely be into these; he's read a lot of the featured books. Hmm, birthday coming up...

  5. You might want to check out my selection of literature inspired tees. Maybe not the usual style or choice but available for guys and gals and available printed in the UK or the US (hence no more customs fees).
