A key turning point in the history of our brand was adidas taking umbrage to the homage we paid to their archive in our early designs. This meant we had to move  in a new direction as far as t shirts were concerned and one of the first (and to date most popular) was the classic Mille clad lad gazing at the tower blocks in front of him with the wording 'The North Will Rise Again' taken from lyrics by Prestwich post Punk band 'The Fall'.

Sadly we can no longer salute our cherished trainer brand on our tee's (although every other Tom, Dick and Harry seems to be!), but we can pay tribute to this iconic design that to an extent saved our little label and gave us the inspiration to make it to 10 years and counting.....we give you 'Resurrection North' released later today.
