Everybody loves a good t-shirt. From the mightiest exec to the humblest man on the street, they’re a great leveller. But where can you find the best, most varied and generally coolest selection in our fine capital city? Here. Here you can:
- TSHIRT STORE
We were sold ever since we set foot in this store in Stockholm two years ago. It’s taken them a while, but they’ve finally arrived. The great thing about the T-Shirt store is that they provide a platform from young illustrators and designers to showcase their work which in turn keeps the stock fresh and creative!
- JOHNNY CUPCAKES
We couldn’t make it to the grand opening of this respected brand and to be honest, seeing the footage online we probably made the right choice. To say it was chock-a-block would be an understatement. But the store’s layout is worth a visit alone, showcasing their Ts in bakery-style cabinets. A true rags to riches story – what’s not to love about this brand?
- SUPER SUPERFICIAL
Pretty much directly opposite Johnny Cupcakes, Superficial has now got some stiff competition just off Carnaby Street. However, their quirky illustrations offer something a little different the American style Ts offered across the street.
Their Twitter account has to be one of the best things about this brand; they’ve got a truly bizarre sense of humour and that’s exactly why we love them. Honest, fun and transparent – plus they make some pretty good T’s!
- SPITALFIELDS/CAMDEN MARKET
The perfect spots if you want to pick up some really exclusive T-shirts. The markets are home to young artists displaying their work on the fashion canvas that is the humble T-shirt. The quality of the T-shirts may not reflect the store brands but the uniqueness of them more than makes up for it.
- BEYOND RETRO
Probably one of the best shops to pick up a great vintage T. If you ever happen to arrive early enough to see the deliveries it will take you right back to the moment of ‘how to make it in America’ when they discovered the hidden warehouse! The fit of the vintage pieces may not be the greatest, but you can find some true gems in here! Pair any of them with some ripped black jean, high tops and Oakley sunglasses and you’ll look like you just dropped in from the 90s!
