Classic logos: Toerag t-shirts at Etsy

by Modculture 8 March, 2015

We flagged up Toerag a while back when they were selling via eBay. Now the t-shirt range looks to have been expanded and is selling via Etsy.

Worth a look too. I’m not saying it’s t-shirt weather now, but it might well be soon and when it is, they’re worth having in the wardrobe / drawer.

The range features a range of mod-friendly subjects, from shirts featuring bands through to logos and compilation album sleeves. As examples, check out the Rhythm and Blues above (based on a compilation album logo), The Who logo t-shirt below and The Artwoods long-sleeve top (also below).

Many more too, with prices starting from around £10.
