In an age where the big street stores and even supermarkets stock band t-shirts, you have to dig a little deeper to stand out. One place to find more obscure 1960s and 1970s t-shirts is Toerag.
Toerag is an independent t-shirt maker and seller, producing handmade t-shirts generally from the more obscure end of of the 1960s and 1970s. Yes, you might have heard of some of the bands (The Who and The Beatles obviously), but many fall into the ‘cult’ category and none will be available on the high street. That’s the appeal here. As well as the price, but I will come to that in a moment.
For now, how about looking at some of the designs currently available? There are 170 according to the label’s retail site, with a few of our favourites picked out above and below.
Above is The Who, using an image from Keith Moon’s drum kit from the mid-1960s. That retails for £20. Below you will find a Kraftwerk Autobahn t-shirt for £12, a t-shirt featuring the Beatles’ Apple Store logo (also £12) and a t-shirt featuring the logo of cult rock band Traffic, which is £12 again.
All the t-shirts come in sizes small through to extra large and sometimes in different colours. See the listing for that. In fact, see the website for the full range. Perfect for the current warm weather. Oh and the label also does some rather cool little rock dolls too, which are also worth a look if you like that kind of thing – or just want Ray and Dave Davies of The Kinks (to name just two) in your home.
