I don’t know how long this Last Exit to Nowhere coupon code will last but I get the feeling it won’t be forever so it’s probably a good idea to use it before you lost it. SALE15 gets you 15% off at the checkout.

Every T-shirt in “This is Spinal Tap”

by Andy on August 16, 2012

spinal tap t-shirts

I was watching Spinal Tap with friends a few months ago and couldn’t help but notice that there were an awful lot of t-shirts on show, and since I had so much fun with the Scott Pilgrim t-shirt list I thought I’d give this one a go. It’s hardly surprising considering that tees are the classic rock n’ roll wardrobe staple, but it’s still fun to see interesting tees being worn by characters in a movie, especially when I imagine that quite a lot of them were created specifically for the movie itself.

In spite of the popularity of the film then and now, there are surprisingly few companies out there which have taken the plunge and recreated shirts from the movie, with most seemingly happy to put “it goes to 11″ on a tee and leave it at that. It’s disappointing, but maybe if this post does well some enterprising freelance designers will put their efforts onto a print-on-demand site like Cafepress, Zazzle, or RedBubble so you can snap them up before they get DMCA takedown requests. If they make them, I’ll post them here, but for now we’ll have to make do with merely enjoying looking at the great t-shirts featured in Spinal Tap. Please note that I was taking screen grabs from the DVD version of the film since I don’t know anyone with the Blu-Ray version, but if this post gets enough attention I will happily order a copy of the Blu-Ray so that we can have some extra detail for the images. Also, I would never claim to be a Spinal Tap authority, I’ve seen the film a few times and really like it, but if I make any errors in this post just let me know and I’ll fix it right up.

polymer records spinal tap t-shirt


As you know, I have a fondness for t-shirts that exist within the fictional universe of the movie/TV show/book that they subtly reference. It’s a lot less in your face than the typical movie tee, and if it gets recognised by a fellow fan then you’re guaranteed to get an appreciative nod on the street.

Considering how popular How I Met Your Mother is there are surprisingly few t-shirts about it, TeeFury are bucking that trend.


Shirt.Woot‘s description suggests that this shirt has nothing to do with the Brady Bunch.


Whiskey and zombies, a match made in the apocalypse (and at RIPT).


An Asian take on the three-eyed fish from the early days of The Simpsons are Qwertee.


Zelda inspired shirt at Shirt Punch.


A surprisingly intricate Vader design at The Yetee.


I might be reading a bit more into this that there really is, but today is the anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G’s death, and he had a song called ‘Recognize a Pimp’ so…. 24tee, did I crack the code?


Hydro74 has one of those styles you can recognise really easily, here he is at DBH today.

Last Exit to Nowhere were approached to be the official producer of crew t-shirts for John Carter (which is released today, just by chance), and they’ve been allowed to sell the shirts for a limited time.


SS12 is now online at Dephect.


New Diamond Supply Co snapbacks are in at Street Casuals.


SpringLeap have teamed up with Stimorol for their biggest ever design contest, and this time it’s for packaging, not tees.

The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

by Andy on December 18, 2008


I have sad news to report friends, after a few good weeks writing about this seasons IT Crowd episodes, I’m afraid this week is a bit of a failure. After spending a while trying to work out where Roy’s tees came from (which is why this post is a few days late compared to usual), I’ve only managed to find one of the three tees.

The first tee worn by Roy in the episode (pic at the top of this post) had a bit of a Japanese feel to it, seeing as it has some Asian looking text on it and what looks like a series of characters beneath it. I don’t even know where I’d start looking for this tee, so I throw myself open to your suggestions.


The second is pretty easy, in theory, it’s a design with a slogan of some kind on it, usually I just have to Google that, and voila, I remain “that guy who find The IT Crowd shirts.” Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to work out what the slogan says, I’m pretty sure that the final word being said by the character is ‘time’, but that isn’t much help without the rest of it. It has the look of a webcomic style t-shirt, so maybe someone out there might be aware of which webcomic it is, and then I’ll have some breadcrumbs to follow and hunt it down.


I’m glad that it was the last tee in the show that I managed to find, because then you’ll go away from this post thinking “sure, that sucked a bit, but at least he found one,” instead of, “dammit Andy, you’re such a loser, and you keep forgetting to link to things in blog posts!”

The Overlook Hotel, for those of you who arewondering why Roy would be promoting a hotel instead of his usual geek-chic, is the hotel in The Shining. The tee is available from Last Exit to Nowhere and costs £17.50.


Something else I noticed in the show was that Roy appears to be a fan of a blog called “Why, That’s Delightful” which is of course (of course!) written by the show’s writer and creator Graham Linehan. Except, he was actually looking at something else.

From watching the show, I had presumed that this weeks tee scavenger hunt for The IT Crowd was going to be a tough one, but in reality I managed to hunt down both of the t-shirts Roy wore in the episode.

If you haven’t seen the show, you’re probably wondering why there is a topless man at the top of this post. Well, I don’t want to give away the plot, but Roy ends up shirtless for quite lot of the show, which is probably great for those of you that are into not-particularly-toned Irishmen (not that I’m anything to write home about!).


The first tee Roy wore in the episode was this white shirt with a number of small hand drawn graphics on it and the text “a series of tubes” written underneath. Any geek worth their salt, knows what that’s a reference to, and for those of you that don’t, it’s a quote from corrupt former-Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, who was explaining net neutrality to the Senate. The tee is by Think Geek, costs $9.99 (though as it is on its ‘last chance’, it probably won’t be reprinted, so be quick) and can be bought here.


Roy then went off being all topless and stuff and we didn’t see him wearing another tee until the closing credits in which he was struggling to wrestle his jacket off an elderly woman. The was a quick shot in which I got a good look at the tee, which had the words Ludovico Technique written on it. The Ludovico Technique is of course the “fictitious drug-assisted aversion therapy from the novel and film A Clockwork Orange.” A quick google told me that the tee came from British label Last Exit To Nowhere, costs £17.50 and can be purchased here.
