Can’t get enough of Junk Foods amazing tees

TruffleShuffle Health Warning…..Junk Food will seriously affect your health…..y addiction to cool retro t-shirts!

Having seen many t-shirts grace the shelves of TruffleShuffle over the years, Junk Food definitely has to be my favourite brand. I originally fell in love with the soft figure hugging t-shirts, however – this romance has been kept alive due to Junk Foods ability to develop as a brand – offer more styles, more awesome designs – on different fabrics.

Recently moving house and downsizing gave me the opportunity to examine my wardrobe – asking my t-shirts random questions like; Have I worn you in the last year? Do you go with everything? Were you an impulse buy? I realised I couldn’t part with any of my Junk Food t-shirts as they all add something unique and quirky to my collection.

Starting with the Ladies Junk Food t-shirts, I thought I would have a closer look at the brand and choose my top 5 designs.

Junk Food are famous for their Super Hero collection and with designs like this – it’s clear why. I love this tee because it’s really fitted, such a nice colour for my summer wardrobe and features a quirky picture of my favourite super hero!

Moving on to the Men’s Junk Food t-shirts……I don’t quite know where to begin as there are so many cool designs!

One of my favourite styles would be the Tri-blend range from Junk Food. This extremely cool design of Snoopy on a super soft t-shirt had to be included in my top 5.

Cycling Superheroes

Being a keen cyclist I was pedalling my way across the world wide web the other night when I came across some some fantastic illustrations by graphic designer/illustrator/fellow bike fiend Mike Joos.

If like me, you grew up reading comics you’ll know some superheroes can fly through the air, some can scale skyscrapers and others can metamorphose into other beings. However, I don’t remember them ever resorting to riding bicycles! Joos, has created the funny side of these superheroes with these illustrations in which each character rides a customized bike. What is even more clever is that each of the bicycles is somehow connected to the character that sits on it.

See a selection of our favourite bike-themed Joos pieces below:

The Super’est Auction in the World!

Stop what you’re doing, pack an overnight bag, and get yourself on the next flight to the US of A…

The American Superhero Museum, based in Indianapolis,  housed around 1,000 collectables, artefacts, props and costumes from the Superman and Batman TV shows and movies from the 1950’s onwards. In 2008, the museum closed without explanation and a 2010 Court Order has demanded that the memorabilia be auctioned on January 22nd, 2011.

Some of our tips for the highest bids are original Superman costumes worn by George Reeves, Christopher Reeves and Dean Cain. We’ve seen similar originals selling in a memorabilia shop in Las Vegas for between £25,000 and £50,000. One of Helen Slater’s original Supergirl costumes is going under the hammer, as is a replica Batboat and Batmobile – brand new replica Batmobiles are currently selling for £100,000.

Superman Auction

So if you’ve got a few thousand quid burning a hole in your pocket, get yourself to Indianapolis, bid on something fun, and let us know what the cabin crew said when you flew home wearing an original Christopher Reeve £50,000 Superman costume. Alternatively, if you’re planning on sailing the Batboat back home, we’ll be your First Mate!!

For details of the other items available at the auction, click here. If you fancy a cheaper alternative, pick yourself up a TruffleShuffle Superman Costume and tell everyone it’s the real deal, we promise we won’t tell a soul!
