There’s nothing we like better than snuggling up on the sofa under a blanket with a huge bucket of salty popcorn watching old school movies when the rain is pounding down outside! Our love of all the cult classics, has fed our insatiable desire to buy as many amazing movie tees as possible. Here is a little glimpse of some of the highlights.
Being a nipper in the 80s means that cartoons were a pretty big part of my T.V viewing. So needless to say cartoons related products are probably my favourite genre on TruffleShuffle. With so many fantastic licenses and designs to choose from picking one favourite product would be next to impossible. So I thought I would show you my Top 10 products but it actually ended up being my Top 13?!?!?
From early memories of watching Long-Distance Clara on Pigeon Street to running round using Sight-beyond-Sight like Lion-O with my sister pretending to be Snarf from the Thundercats, all the products below jog fantastic memories for me, hopefully they do for you too…..

The first sign that Snow White and the Huntsman is a completely different movie to Mirror, Mirror is when we compare Snow Whites. In contrast to the dreamy innocence of Lily Collin’s delicate and feminine version in Mirror, Mirror, angst-ridden Kristen Stewart brings out a much grittier side to the role. In the trailer she appears vulnerable yet determined, a much different Snow White than we are accustomed to, but dare I say somewhat mirroring a certain Bella Swan. Not necessarily a bad thing, as this movie, described by some as something akin to Lord of The Rings, is clearly aiming its sights at the cult movie audience and what bigger cult movie franchise is there at the moment if not Twilight.
If a star studded cast is what you are after each of these movies has this in spades. Alongside our too very different Snow Whites, movie fans are also faced with choosing between the true Evil Queen of Charlize Theron or the lighthearted malevolence of Julia Roberts. And all this before we consider the men in these movies: Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Sam Claffin as Prince Charming. Snow White and the Huntsman has a certain added appeal in that regard. But Mirror, Mirror has an appearance from Sean Bean as the king! How do you choose?
So…which movie do we think comes out on top? That depends on what kind of movie fan you are. Are you a lover of fairy tale worlds and happy ever afters? Mirror, Mirror is the movie for you. If it’s an epic battle between good and evil that captures your attention? Snow White and the Huntsman. Either way, both of these movies look set to be big hits in 2012, why not see both!
Mirror Mirror – Official UK Trailer
Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts as the Queen and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White. An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright.
Snow White and the Huntsman – First Trailer
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar(r) winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
March has been a very special month, with lots of new brands and collections being launched on the site. Just as the sun is starting to show it’s face and coming out from behind the clouds, we sure are ready to boost our tee collections in preparation for the Summer months!
If you consider yourself a bookish type, avert your eyes from your gripping read and peer over your sexy specs at this fabulous new collection. Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Their tees feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art! Featuring cult titles such as Pride And Prejudice, Catch 22, The Great Gatsby, Moby Dick and Wuthering Heights. In addition to spreading the joy of reading on their fab tees, Out Of Print acknowledge that many parts of the world don’t have access to books at all, so for each product sold, one book is donated to a community in need through their partner Books For Africa. Such and delightful and heart warming mission and stunning tees too!
Turn on, jack in and rock out! This amazing collection of Shoulder Bags, Totes and wait for it… BUM BAGS all come with amplified speakers which connect to your smartphone or MP3 player, oh yeah, the party’s in the bag! An excellent choice for heading to the beach, picnic-ing, camping and generally carrying about for those that cannot be without their music and want to enjoy it on the move or with friends! We couldn’t resist giving these a go when they landed here at Truffle Towers and were hugely impressed with the sound quality and even more importantly, volume. Also, we are majorly excited about the return of the bum-bag this season, perfect for the 90’s trend which is set to predominate this year.
We have stocked Junk food for a good few years now and have seen many a great collection come and go, however this latest offering from the hip LA brand really did hit the mark! Bang on trend for styling, shapes and graphics, Junk Food really is a guilty pleasure! With Minnie Mouse and Looney Tunes revitalised in retro 90’s graphics on cropped tees and vests for the boys to show off the results of a spinach heavy diet, there really is something for everyone.
‘The coolest unisex Italian watch brand to hit the UK…’
The Italian watch that has taken Europe by storm has arrived in the UK. O clock watches are designed & manufactured in Italy & the brand already has something of a cult following in Europe.
The brilliance of O clock lies in it’s interchangeable concept. You not only build up a collection of practical, functional & aesthetically pleasing watches, the interchangeable faces & straps allows you to mix & match your look depending on your mood & your outfit. Other designs include some fabulously unique Disney designs for the adult market – original sketches of favourite characters. O clock is so much more than just a watch – it is also an object of design that is constantly pleasing to the eye. You will feel equally happy wearing this watch on the beach or in the office. The watches are extremely comfortable to wear, made from hypoallergenic silicon & come in three sizes. They can be worn loose like a bracelet or with a tighter fit.
O clock Disney collection is inspired by the most famous Disney characters. Whether you’re an adult or child you’ll love the subtle character sketches on these watches featuring Mickey or Minnie Mouse, Goofy or even the iconic Mickey silhouette. O clock Disney comes with its own collectable tuna-tin and are still as interchangeable as the rest of the range. So Minnie can look just as at home in the red strap as she does in the white, or you can rock goofy in a slick black strap. The only limit is your creativity!!
I can’t actually remember how long I’ve been waiting for these O clock watches to arrive at Truffle towers. Being a real 80s kid I find it extremely hard to resist anything neon. Green, Yellow, Pink… Whatever it is, I love it. So when 3 neon watches come in to stock how do pick which colour to buy?? Easiest answer is I don’t, I just buy all of them… The fact that I can mix and match faces with straps adds a whole new level of creativity to simply wearing a watch! They’re amazing….
Want one? Well, you’ll have to be quick as these watches will be gone in no time at all. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) Click here to see the full range.
