1984 doublethink t-shirt

Am I the only person that rolls their eyes when their ‘political’ friend references 1984 when talking about something happening today? We get it, you watched a movie and probably read half the book, now you’re Che Guevara.

Literary tees from Truffle Shuffle

'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Bronte

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!)

George Orwell’s 1984 by Kafkakotton

george orwell 1984 t-shirt by kafkakotton

I must admit near-complete ignorance to this design, as I’ve never read the book, and didn’t pay nearly enough attention to the film, but it does look like a pretty sweet design based upon George Orwell’s much-quoted-by-media-students book 1984.

Kafkakotton are a company that produce t-shirts that have been inspired by famous literary works, all of which I’ve heard of, but never read, because when you’ve got a t-shirt blog to run, if it isn’t about t-shirts you feel guilty reading about anything else. Oh, and they give 5% of their proceeds to a charity that helps with child literacy.
