Back in updated form, The Jam-inspired Beat Surrender t-shirt by 66 Clothing is now available to order.
I know, it’s not exactly t-shirt weather yet. It was only snowing here last week. But the cold weather won’t last forever. Spring is around the corner, and the summer will be here faster than you think. In other words, it’s not the worst idea to buy a t-shirt. Especially if it’s a limited edition.
And this one is. The original sold out some time ago, and this version, whilst looking, at first glance, not massively different, does have a couple of changes.
The design itself, as you might know, is based on a t-shirt that Paul Weller wore during the last Jam gigs in 1982. A white t-shirt with a contrast collar, two stripes across the chest in black and red and…well that’s it really. Simple but effective.
The difference isn’t really the design but the construction. The new version is made in the UK, using a very soft Italian cotton. The cut is also ‘slightly different’ and similar to the label’s ‘On Campus’ shirts. I picked up a few of the 66 Clothing t-shirts last summer, and they were very well made. Not the kind of thing that self-destructs after a couple of washes.
The Beat Surrender t-shirt by 66 Clothing is available to buy now, selling for £44.50 in pretty much any size you would need. Buy now, pick it out of the wardrobe when the temperatures rise.
