Show some love for the Simpsons, with these cool The Simpsons TShirts including this Duff Beer TShirt for the beer connoisseur dads out there.

Holy smokes Batman! Another retro movie weekend is here and boy are we excited!

Kicking down the door of our local Blockbusters (metaphorically), we find ourselves faced with a entire plethora of awesome retro movies just waiting to be released and enjoyed. Walking the isles, we gaze across the start-studded covers with all their promise or action, romance and of course some cracking one liners.

Have a happy retro weekend!

13 years ago this very month we took to the interwebs and registered the weird and wonderful domain name TruffleShuffle.co.uk & we were officially born! To mark this super special occasion, we thought we would take a little walk down memory lane and give you our top 13 memorable moments at here at TruffleShuffle. Hopefully you’ll learn a little something about who we are, where we’ve come from and where we’re heading. Let’s go!
1. MAY 2004
We sold our very first t-shirt on the mighty (old looking) eBay. With the money from this sale, we scurried online and purchased the domain name truffleshuffle.co.uk. Why TruffleShuffle? It’s retro, it’s cool and we LOVE the Goonies?!
2. DECEMBER 2004
By our first Christmas, we were selling around 20 t-shirts a day!! Our range was humble, nothing like our huge collection of classic retro T-Shirts we have today that’s for sure! We had our sights firmly set on tee greatness, which is something we still strive towards today.
3. JANUARY 2005
In the press! We had our first press feature in the infamous Loaded magazine! Being described as ‘a goldmine of ’80′s inspired t-shirtery’. *blushes*
4. JUNE 2005
With the business continuing to grow, we had to move TruffleShuffle from our 1 bed flat into a small office space in Bristol and continue the adventure. Weirdly with all our own personal collections, our homes don’t look too much different from back then now!
5. DECEMBER 2005
By our second Christmas, we were selling 100 t-shirts a day!!
That’s 5x what we selling the previous year. Busy busy!
6. SEPTEMBER 2005
Just over a year from launch, we moved into our first proper grown-up warehouse.
On that day ‘Truffle Towers V1.0′ was born.
7. MAY 2008
Woohoo! We win Bristol’s 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year! Such a great achievement which only helped to add fire to the Truffle belly.
8. JUNE 2009
Eeeek! We needed to move again…. This time our warehouse (Truffle Towers V2.0) is a whopping
three times the size of Truffle Towers V1.0! The TrufffleShuffle team continues to grow… as does the size of the tea rounds!
9. DECEMBER 2009
We sell our Millionth T-Shirt! That’s right folks, in just a few years, we had managed to pick, pack and post a stupendous million tees to people all over the world.
10. SEPTEMBER 2011
No pictures please! Now seven years hard at work, we’re crowned Best Specialist Retailer by the amazing people at Reveal Magazine. Such an honour and a great excuse for a party! Right?
11. AUGUST 2012
Splashdown! Mother Nature takes a dislike to TruffleShuffle and sends sooo much rain to Bristol that it floods Truffle Towers V2.0. The whole team rally together to save the day and as many of our retro creations as possible. Great excuse to clean the floors we guess!
12. AUGUST 2016
Another milestone! We ship our millionth order and to celebrate, we ran a huge competition to win a years supply of cool t-shirts!! The lucky winner was Matthew Smith from Norwich.
13. APRIL 2018
We’re on the move…. again, hopefully for the last time! This time into our purpose built new headquarters. Truffle Towers V3.0 will once again be three times the size Truffle Towers V2.0 and feature very cool ‘break out’ areas and even a retro gaming zone… We can’t bloomin’ wait!
AND FINALLY…
Of course, none of this would have been possible without each and every one of you lovely lot who placed and order, sent us a tweet or even just checked out our site. We love what we do and for as long as you guys do to, we’ll be here giving you the best selection of classic clothing and accessories as possible. Huuuuge thank you everyone!
If you want a little more insight into TruffleShuffle and all the lovely folk that work here why not pop the kettle on, get comfy and enjoy the video we made to celebrate our 10th Anniversary.
See you in another 13 years!

Bluebells and sunny spells! Another retro movie weekend is here which means…. time for some retro movie goodness!

Setting sail into the vast infinity of the deep blue sea, we find ourselves at the simple beginnings of what could quite be the journey of a lifetime. With ration sacks bulging and water receptacles sealed and tight, we slowly begin to drift away from the certainty of the land as we aim our craft into the unknown to take on all that may lay before us. Will we find old and forgotten lands? Will we just end up going in a circle and end up where we began? Let’s find out!

Have a happy retro weekend!

Swimsuits at the ready! The new Baywatch movie hits our screens at the end of the month and we actually.can’t.wait. Starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron, it’s sure to be hilarious, tongue-in-cheek and slightly ridiculous (obvs).

In the meantime, we thought we’d take a look at what made the oh-so-cheesy 80′s mega-hit show so darn great – from the running scenes to the one-liners, along with a few fab facts even the biggest fan might not know…

ALL the Slow Mo Running

Ah, that famous running along the beach, as slow as their legs could carry them! This iconic calling card of the show has inspired a thousand parodies, sketches the world over – from Friends to The Muppets – and even a ‘slow-motion’ marathon, happening to celebrate the new film (in case you’re wondering how it works – people have to reach the finish line of the .2k race in the ‘slowest and sexiest’ fashion, to win!

But why the slow motion running on Baywatch in the first place, we hear you ask? Whatever the unintended consequences, it was apparently inspired by one of the producers shooting sprinters in a similar way at the 1988 Olympic Games. David Hasselhoff also claimed recently that is helped to paid out the 50-minute running slot on their super-low budget.

Whatever the reasons, we love it and are totally working on our own runs this summer – iPhones at the ready…

The total legend that is the Hoff…

Whether he was swimming speedboat-style or judging bikini contests, David Hasselhoff aka Mitch Buchannon was head and shoulders the best, most dedicated lifeguard with his action-packed and always totally believable, not at ALL far-fetched *ahem* plots (delivering a baby on the beach, anyone?) In fact, the Hoff himself pretty much saved Baywatch from tanking – in the US, people weren’t big fans it at first (we know, right?!) and David voluntarily took a pay cut to help fund an overseas revival, where people had been loving it. A hero on the beach and off – what a legend!

…Who may have starred alongside Leo!

In another life, Leonardo DiCaprio might have been playing Mitch’s son Hobie! As unlikely as it sounds, producers auditioned the 15-year-old but they felt he was slightly too old for the part so cast actor Jeremy Jackson, four years younger than Leo, instead. David Hasselhoff now jokes that it was the best thing that ever happened to Leo as we wouldn’t have had him in Titanic, Romeo and Juliet and countless other 90s and beyond roles. Thanks, Baywatch!

Michael Newman was a real lifeguard called…Michael Newman

For all the show’s over the top drama, they did bring some touches of authenticity – namely Michael Newman, who played a supporting role doing stunts, helping cast members on rescue protocol and sharing real rescue stories as inspo for story plots (maybe those crazy storylines weren’t so crazy after all!) Pro-surfer Kelly Slater also starred as Jimmy Slade, but later got tired of the show interfering with his surfing and the far-fetched plots: “ I’d be like, ‘What!? There’s an octopus that’s stealing surfboards and hiding them in a secret cove and I’m going to fight him in the next show? Who writes this sh-t?’” Slater told GQ. He says that like it’s a bad thing!

A Baywatch Musical is set to hit the capital!

Okay, whilst not strictly a fact about the series, there is a BAYWATCH MUSICAL HEADING TO LONDON. *klaxon* Which we feel is worthy of its own mention. Hoping to debut this year, show producers Schwartz and Berk have promised that a water tank will be on stage. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some huge 80s and 90s-style tunes and a celeb star turn or two (don’t let us down, Pammie!)

Now we’ve reminded you why this show is worthy of some mega appreciation (but you knew that already, right?!), show the world you’re a fan in our wicked Baywatch T-Shirts!

Fancy making waves at your next bash or just re-enacting that famous beachfront walk? Look no further than our Baywatch Costumes!
