Chunk – A great British t-shirt brand!

Hi my name’s Simon and I’m a Chunkaholic. There I said it. Now, If you haven’t come across any of our men’s T-shirts from Chunk then you’re in for a right treat. I’ll start with a quick history lesson…

Chunk started back in 2001 having launched some designs all based on the Haynes Car Manuals iconic cover illustrations. Ten years on and Chunk is now one of the UK’s leading urban street-wear labels. Chunk’s ethos was, and still is, to produce great designs on quality garments, targeting 18-35 year old males with a strong emphasis on cool nostalgia. Famous for their bold graphics, tongue-in-cheek humour and unique design quirks, Chunk now has worked with some of the biggest licenses in the world, which include Marvel, Hanna Barbera, Fremantle Media (Danger Mouse) and Lucas Films (Star Wars) – for which Chunk won a licensing award in 2007 for its Star Wars range. The future promises to be incredibly bright for Chunk as the brand expands into even more retro goodness further cementing its reputation as a great British brand.

With TruffleShuffle.com offering a massive range of amazing retro t-shirts, gifts and accessories we get to see cool new stuff all the time. But for me nothing matches the excitement of a new Chunk catalogue turning up because I know it will be full of amazing new designs. It’s their ‘outside the box’ approach to designing a t-shirt that I love, generally taking a familiar character such as Darth Vader or Mr.T and putting them in an unusual situation, IT’S GENIUS. I could only wish that when I’m down at the coast for a cheeky weekend surf that I catch a Stormtrooper ‘out the back’ riding that perfect wave or driving past my local scrap yard would reveal that Mr.T, Luke and Bo Duke, Michael Knight and the Trotters famous ‘rides’ had reached the end of their lives (probably due to the government Scrappage scheme!!). Only t-shirts from Chunk make this happen.

Bag it up!

Just as we were beginning to enjoy the sun, in true British weather fashion it’s been nothing but rain and wind since. No wonder The Beatles once sang about getting their “tan from standing in the English rain!”

So it’s back to layering up and bringing out the warm jackets- sad times. One thing I love about Truffle Shuffle is that not only does it sell awesome t-shirts but they’ve got a great collection of retro accessories and gifts which they keep adding to it.

Jeez, is there anything on this site I don’t want? *rhetorical question alert*

Last month Truffle Shuffle introduced the totally retro label Casio to the site and this time they now bring another retro brand back to our attention: Gola.

Growing up everyone knew of the brand Gola. It was as well-known as other sporting brands such as Adidas. I don’t think you can get more retro than Gola! In fact I’m sure I had some Gola trainers when I was a wee child….

Well you too can now fondly remember your childhood Gola days thanks to Truffle Shuffle. The site now features a range of Gola bags in a variety of sizes and colours.

As you can see from the photo of me (looking very tired and about to venture into the rain eek) I went for the dark taupe and black waxy shoulder bag. I have to say this bag would have been perfect if I was still a student. It’s big enough to handle all your books and papers but cool enough to take to the SU bar later, bonus!

For us non students though it is still a great bag to get: I was bored of my boring plain laptop bag so used my Gola bag as a makeshift yet more fashionable way of taking my laptop about. When I wasn’t lugging technology about I used my bag to go shopping with. Great for ‘hiding’ some of my new but untold buys…(ssh!)

Men and women can easily add these Gola bags into their daily wardrobe just like I did. For those who like a good work out in the gym, then check out the holdalls to replace your old gym bag. If working up a sweat makes you break out in a sweat then they also make perfect and funky overnight bags. You’d certainly spot your luggage on the train!
