This week we’ve got two great designs – one inspired by the best in British Slang and the other is a reprint run for Mind the Gap, one of our most popular shirts.
Mind the Gap Returns!
We’re continuing with our plan to offer one reprint design each week during October along with our new weekly design. Based on the voting and waitlist numbers, Mind the Gap was the second most requested shirt that we reprint. If you plan to order this as a Christmas gift, this will be your ONLY CHANCEto order this for Christmas.
There’s a certain bit of romance about the Tube. That cool breeze of air that precedes the next train. That particular ‘Tube smell.’ Rocking back and forth as the train speeds through the tunnel. Jostling with locals. Riding the Tube can be quite pleasurable (and quite miserable, especially in the summer!). The world’s first underground transit system spreads out through London like the tendrils of an octopus. You can hop on one train and in 20 minutes be somewhere completely different. It’s very friendly for tourists and the easiest way to see London. You also get to pretend to be a Londoner; you get a sense of the rhythm of life for the locals.
About British Slang Bus Blind
One of the most celebrated aspects of British Culture these days are the brilliant turns of phrases that the British can ascribe to every day life that can make the mundane seem delightful. This design is a tribute to our favorite British Slang Terms and Phrases. The design was inspired by the iconic London Bus Blind and features 21 varies phrases that we simply love. We use the same format and the same font used in the old style London Bus Blinds. It’s going to look great when it’s printed!
