Meet Alex, cool cat but a bit of a sick puppy. He's been going the match since he was a wee urchin and opened up his first mooey at the sweet and tender age of 16. A Jack the lad always good for a laugh and a line. Does a bit of this and that, he's a little bit wooo, a little bit waaay, a little bit woosh.
Now he's so well schooled in the art of skullduggery, he even has his own clothing line getting snapped up by all the hip kids to wear for the game down the boozer. He's so now that there is no one he's not done a collabo with, even getting CP to do him a double watchviewer as he has a kettle on each wrist. Immortalized here in all his glory by the talented Paul Cruse.
Out soon..... JM

This vintage slice of graffiti originally tagged on the London Euston train line has become something of an obsession for us, you could even say an integral part of our brand. Because we're Northern you see and like most of our breed proud of it. Yes we love the North vs South banter and even throw in the odd design just for our friends in the deep South. But when it comes down to it, we have this belief that the grim harsh reality of a less pampered dull Northern existence, makes us more resilient with a stronger will to succeed though adversity.
We also like clothes and nice ones at that! So we got our man Paul Cruse to take inspiration from two of our favourite things (we believe we were the first of many to take an interest in putting the Mille Miglia on designs). The result is a new twist on two of our old designs, re drawn from scratch with his take on the anniversary CP advert.
We like it and hope you do to, it's coming soon... JM

Yes it's started already and we're making no apologies! The 'Numismatics' (or coin collector) design is inspired by the oversized coins given out with a full tank of two star (or something like that) by fuel giants 'Esso' for the 1970 & 1990 world cups.
OK so it's not strictly legal tender but much cooler than a Smurf and great for throwing at those cheating foreigners should they make your piss boil.
So celebrating the up and coming WC 2014 in Brazil, we have embossed some of our lovely tee's with a terrace twist immortalizing three great tournaments, with some favoured lad attire of the time. Not as heavy as the originals but feel free to throw yours at Balotelli (or indeed the telly) should needs must this Summer. JM
