It's always a honour to see any of our clothing in public, whether it be on the back of someone at the match or as in this case a celebrity like Craig Charles. One of the first sections that we added to the 80s Casuals website back in 2005 was a Rogues Gallery which featured guys wearing the T-Shirts all over the world. The Gallery is now in the menu under 'The Casuals' section.
Craig Charles first appeared in Coronation Street back in 2006 wearing our 'Stan Smith' trainer T-Shirt and it's good to see he is still a big fan of the brand with this recent pic of him sporting our M.A.Strum T-Shirt. The design highlights the magnificent Flat Iron building in New York whilst incorporating the logos of MA Strum and the Massimo Osti Archive into the billboards around the building.
The tee is still available here;
Besides his role in Coronation Street, Craig fronts the 6Music programme 'The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show' on a Saturday evenings which covers all genres of Funk, Soul and Mod music from its early origins right up to the present day. Craig knows his music and the programme is one of the most respected on the 6Music station, so much so that he is asked to fill in on Radio 2 when other D.J.s are away on holiday.
