I’m an English Literature graduate. It was a couple of years ago that I graduated, admittedly, but you’ll find that almost all bloggers on the internet are those who took an unhealthy obsession with books to the extent that they paid thousands of pounds to be taught it in tertiary education. And so this post is for all those who spent three, four or more years of their life reading 5 full novels a week and writing about them.
Truffle Shuffle have a brand of tees called ‘Out of Print’, which are based on some of the best novels in history. They’re beautiful, retro designs, slightly aged for that dog-eared effect that you get from the best-loved paperbacks in your collection (no word on whether the t-shirts come with the fusty old book smell though). I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t crave these shirts – and badly.
The one problem? Cost. At £27.99 a shirt, it’s something that a guy who took a non-vocational degree has to press his nose up to the glass for and save his pennies over the weeks. But save up I will, and end up splurging my cash on one. The question is which one to go for: ‘Animal Farm’, ‘The Great Gatsby’, ‘Catch-22′ or ‘A Clockwork Orange’? (PS. Truffle Shuffle, what’s up with not putting ‘Wuthering Heights’ on a guy’s tee? We like Bronte too!)
