football culture t-shirt eleven eleven

I’ve really been into football this season, probably because my and my boys are really into our fantasy league (well, I am, but I’m winning so of course I am), and because Newcastle are still doing a lot better than expected despite a fairly poor December. The problem as I see it with football t-shirts is that they’re all a bit blokey and tribal, they mark you as supporting a certain team or are a bit of a novelty (is anyone still wearing a Balotelli-esque ‘Why Always Me?’ shirt?).

Eleven Eleven aim to change that with football-based designs that are smart, wearable, and don’t make people think you’re a football hooligan. They come from that bastion of footballing heritage, San Francisco, but in spite of the impediment they have produced a lovely line of designs, which is hardly a surprise considering that the brand was founded by Artefacture‘s Andreu Osika.

portugal world cup inspired t-shirt by faq clothing

A lot of clothing companies have been getting excited about the World Cup (heck, even I’ve been using my HYA tee sale to negate the depression brought on by watching England), and FAQ Clothing are no different, creating a bunch of tees that base themselves around the colour palettes of several teams in the competition. What I like about this range is that if you wore one of the tees for the next couple of weeks to a match or at the pub, people would get it, but it isn’t necessarily a ‘football tee’, it is only that in context, so you could wear it anywhere anytime without it showing that you’re a big Portugal fan, and that sublety really works in these tees favour. There’s also a couple of black and white tees that you’ll see in the gallery, they aren’t to do with the World Cup, they’re just cool.

sutsu world cup t-shirt competition

This week marks the end of group games in the World Cup, and a huge game that I’m sure everyone has been anticipating since day 1; North Korea taking on Didier Drogba and his Ivory Coast team. Sutsu, who I covered last week, have kindly offered one of their logo tees, and a sticker pack, to someone that can correctly predict the final score in the North Korea vs Ivory Coast World Cup group match. Just leave a comment on this post saying what you think the score will be, making sure to use a working e-mail address otherwise I won’t be able to contact you in the event that you are a winner. When leaving your comment please use the format “North Korea 1 – Ivory Coast 0″ so that I know which team you are assigning each number.

If more than one person leaves the same answer, and that turns out to be the winner, I will use to pick a winner, as I think that is the most fair way to do it.

Thanks a lot to Sutsu for offering the prize competition, please check them out because they definitely deserve a look.

*Yes, that is an astoundingly colourful graphic, but it is the rainbow nation, remember!


USA Soccer 1950 T-shirt by Two Eight Nine

Why must I keep punishing myself in this way? Because, let’s be honest, the USA’s football team has a pretty sweet design for their jersey, they had it on Sautrday night, and they had it in 1950 too.

england t-shirt

One of the really interested things about the upcoming World Cup (it’s tomorrow! it’s tomorrow!) is the adverts on TV. Naturally, this is a huge event and companies want to capitalise on that, but not all of them want to pay for the privilege of saying “…the World Cup” so for the past few weeks I’ve been hearing the term “watching the football” a lot on TV, and it seems that it’s the same case online too. This tee (and several others in the series reoresenting other countries) clearly isn’t a legit product, but it’s just got some names on it, and in a recognisable colourway… so I think it’s safe. Last night in the bath I was thinking (as we all know, the best place to think), I should make a list of cool football (not soccer, definitely not soccer) tees, but then I didn’t know where you could get any, because footie tees tends to be a bit blokey and laddish, which doesn’t really fit in around these parts now, does it?
