IT'S GRIM UP NORTH MK2 T-SHIRT
BANKSY'S TOURIST INFORMATION
There's a saying "Stealing Stolen Stuff" which basically means everything's been done before and copied from something similar. Then it gets re-invented again in different ways. Here we like to call it "inspiration". Many of our designs are what we would say "original ideas" but one or two are 'inspired by' maybe a piece of art like our "Grim up North" T-Shirt. The inspiration for one of our best selling T-Shirts came from flicking through Banksy's 'Wall and Piece' book a few years back. The image of a hoody in front of graffiti saying 'Tourist Information' struck a chord and immediately reminded us of the C.P. Company Urban Protection Metropolis Jacket. 'It's Grim up North' was a Top 10 single for The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu in 1991 and again seemed an appropriate saying for the graffiti we would use.
We have now re-invented the T-Shirt by adding colour to the characters clothing and trainers. The Grim up North Mk2 T-Shirt should be in stores in a couple of weeks.
