With the sun shining, it makes sense to check out the updated range of Mod and 60s t-shirts from Mr B’s Soulful Tees.
Updated because I first encountered this range three or more years back, and I have to say, the label has gone from strength to strength since then. Expanding the range, the subject matter and the type of garments you can purchase.
By that, I mean you can now buy sweatshirts and long-sleeved t-shirts. But when the sun is out, you probably want the t-shirts – and that’s still the overriding ‘format’ here.
When I say the subject matter has widened, that’s because you can now get t-shirts and tops with a strong ivy league influence, some based on 1960s classic design, scooter t-shirts, northern soul, Mod revival, Britpop and more. None of which is a bad thing. But Mod is still dominant here.
From designs worn by Mods (and Mod bands) in the 1960s, record labels, band logos, club logos, plus some original designs too. There are pushing 200 t-shirt designs here right now, so I would hope something that would catch your eye is available within the range.
There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to have a browse at the current range – and buy the one you like. As I said, the range has changed over the years, and t-shirts popular in the past are no longer offered for sale. So if you see something, pick it up before it disappears.
A selection of those designs is pictured here, which I hope gives an overview of what’s on offer right now.
So ‘60s names like the St Louis Union, High Numbers, and Artwoods, plus acts from a little later, like The Chords and the Style Council. Shirts featuring imagery used by The Who are also here, and you might have spotted the Scene Club logo as well.
As I said, that’s really just a taster of what’s here in pretty much any size you need and, in many cases, a choice of t-shirt colour as well. No, you don’t have to go for a white t-shirt if you don’t want one.
Prices, you ask? Firmly in the land of affordable. Expect to pay something like £20 for a t-shirt. A little more for a long-sleeve t-shirt and a sweatshirt for around £26-£28. A wallet-friendly way of keeping cool this summer.
