Guns N Roses Logo TShirt

Amplified Vintage have partnered with some of the worlds most iconic bands to create this classic range of official music clothing and this one stars the bad boys of Rock N Roll, Guns N Roses on a premium tee.

Rolling Stones Tongue Logo T-Shirt

The famous tongue, created by designer John Pasche, looks great on this classic Rolling Stones tee! Perfect for showing off your rock star credentials, obviously.

Led Zeppelin USA 1977 T-Shirt from Amplified

This iconic Led Zeppelin T-shirt from Amplified Vintage is a nod to the band’s world famous 1977 tour of USA and is a replica of the t-shirt which was actually sold at the gig.

David Bowie TShirts

We’re loving the contrast of this neon ‘Bowie’ against the cool charcoal tee. Pay homage to one of Britain’s greatest musicians ever in this classic electric tee featuring the original 1973 Aladdin Sane artwork.

Johnny Cash T-Shirt

Regardless of musical preference, Johnny Cash unites all genres with his endless list of incredible songs. From ‘I Walk the Line’ to his unbelievable cover of Hurt, Johnny Cash can only be described as a musical legend. Pay homage with this awesome ‘eagle’ t-shirt.

Not All Heroes Wear Capes! Our Top REAL Superhero Dads…

With Father’s Day juuuust around the corner (June 18th… have we mentioned our Father’s Day Gift guide yet??), we’ve been chatting, shopping, writing and all other things Dad lately!

One thing we’ve been picking up on a lot lately as a result is that, as kids, maybe even as adults, many children believe their own dads are the real superheroes of the world. They are the strongest, fastest, best at everything and no one else will convince you otherwise. Right? We think all good dads are real superheroes, and to show this we’ve compiled some of our favourite real-life superhero moments from some amazing Dads. Enjoy!

Spidey senses are tingling…

Legends has it, some dads were raised in the wild in the snowy mountains and left to fend for themselves. This man of nature has developed a sharp eye with reactions to rival a racing snake…


Father’s Day gift? As you can see, this Dads Spidey senses are as fine-tuned as a string quartet giving him the ability to sense danger and react in the nick of time. Surely our Spider-Man merchandise is the ONLY gift for this dad.

The RC Save…

With years of toy and other vehicle experience, their sense of danger and alertness has been sharper than a brand new pencil. They have seen the worst that messing around with toys can do and therefore only act to prevent similar scenes of doom…


Father’s Day gift? The force is strong in this one. Spotting the danger and using pure focus to protect the princess at all costs. Our Mr Strong Mug and Star Wars TShirt would do nicely.

Zooooooooom…

As the title would suggest, not all superheroes wear capes… but if they did the Dad’s cape would have been flapping in the wind more than Batman’s while out taking the Batbike for a spin!

Father’s Day gift? Quick as a flash! Our hero here used to super-fast speed to save the day like The Flash himself. True superhero gifts for this superhero would be our Flash Logo TShirt and Flash socks. A fitting uniform.

Presentation is everything…

If you’re a classic dad, chances are you’ve made a few mistakes, right? It’s a little-known fact that some dads have developed superhero level powers of saving face and looking good…all the time…


Father’s Day gift? For the man who knows how important always looking good is, we have our AWESOME range from Opposuits and of course a classic Casio watch.

Keep it cool…

One of the very key things about being a super-dad, is not bringing too much attention to yourself. Turns out these Dads is nailing this…


Father’s Day gift? What two things does every cool dad need? Black Wayfarer Sunglasses and a Mr Cool Mug. Done!

Action man…

As Dads, it’s their responsibility to show their offspring the ways of the world. Connecting with nature and experiencing all the activities that there is on offer. But don’t worry, as superheroes that have got your back!


Father’s Day gift? We’re pretty sure this superhero Dad with moves like this needs some Baywatch TShirt action in his life! What else do you get Mr Action Man himself? Our hand Mr Happy Lunchbox of course! Perfect for taking some much needed snacks on his adventures.

So there you have them folks! Sure fire proof that not all superheroes wear capes. There are many who love quietly among us each day, going about their business safe in the knowledge of their own superhero abilities might be called upon at any moment.

Many of us are lucky enough to call these heroes Dad which is why we take one special day each year to show them how much they mean to us.
If you’re looking to spoil your very own superhero this year, we’ve got you totally sorted with our huge range of Father’s Day gifts including Movie TShirts, Band TShirts, Superhero merchandise and so much more. Enjoy!

Classic Retro Dads – Where are They Now?

As you maaaay or may not (perhaps!) or spotted, Father’s Day 2017 edition is fast approaching and things here at Truffle Towers are starting to get pretty dad-tastic!

With loads of us franticly searching the shops and the cyberweb for the newest, coolest and most perfectest Father’s Day Gifts in all the land to really spoil our old man this year, it’s safe to say we’ve had the dad word spinning in our brains. Inspired by all the dad talk and goings on, we thought we would take some time to look back at some of our favourite dads (we’ve said dad to much already huh) from the big and small screens, see what they’ve been up to and perhaps find out where they are now.

Let’s jump in!

Henry Jones Sr. (Sean Connery) – Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Professor of medieval literature, expert on Grail lore, the father of archaeologist Indiana Jones, we’re pretty sure most people will know and love Jones Sr. Somewhat of a …..difficult so and so, it’s hard to imagine anyone other than professional Scotsman Sean Connery donning his trusty hat and snatching his faithful umbrella. Now, we’re not saying him and Indie had the best father and son relationship to start with, but it’s safe to say their adventures together sure bring them closer and all with a touch of whit and good old fashioned competition.

So, what’s he be up to? Turns out…. A LOT! Starring in such films as (deep breath); The Hunt for Red October, Just Cause, The Rock, Entrapment, and Finding Forrester. Not bed eh! It’s safe to say Sean has had a very fruitful career and is certainly more than a household name. Retired from the big screen, he is currently living in Kranidi, Greece where he can spend time with family and friends including fellow movie star Michael Caine.

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Star Wars Original Stormtrooper Glass Tumbler

This former 007 would be able to enjoy a drink from his homeland in style with this nifty little tumbler.

George McFly (Crispin Glover) – Back to the Future

Oh George! Cautious, nerdy, insecure and a total dude with it! Played by Crispin Glover who tooootally nailed the role as the nerdy sci-fi loving guy who is used to being pushed around. Cripsin has gone on to feature a whole host of films from Wild at Heart, Charlie’s Angels, Beowulf, Alice in Wonderland, to hit show American Gods. Not only starring, he has also produced films through his company including ‘What Is It?’ and ‘It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine.’ Did we mention he also released an album? Oh yeah – check out this album called The Big Problem ≠ The Solution. The Solution = Let It Be. Not enough? He has also written between 15 and 20 books which are classic titles, rearranged and with passages removed to create new stories.

Currently living in Silverlake, California, Crispin continues to pour his time into his creative outlets including music and film production. Busy boy!

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Boxed Star Wars I Am Your Father Darth Vader Mug

He came to him one night (from the planet Vulcan??) offering words of… advice. With this nifty mug, he’ll be sure to never forget that night.

Noah Levenstein/Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy) – American Pie

It’s Jim’s dad! Always there to offer friendly advice… even when it wasn’t asked for. Full of work experience and never afraid to get involved, Jim’s dad has an undying love for Jim which is put to the test a number of times but never wavers. A real solid character who will always do his best for Jim. Solid dad material! But where is he now?
Turns out Jim’s dad has gone pretty damn far. 60+ films? Yep! Levy has been nominated for and won countless awards for his films including a New York Film Critics Circle Award and a Grammy Award. Not to shabby!

So what’s he been up so since American Pie? Turns out a lot. You might have seen him in… Best in Show, Serendipity, Bringing Down the House, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Night at the Museum 2, and heard him in Finding Dory as Charlie. Levy is a Member of the Order of Canada and a recipient of The Governor General’s Performing Arts Award – the foremost honour presented for excellence in the performing arts.


Still working hard, you’ll certainly be seeing more from Jim’s… sorry Eugene be it on TV or the big screen.

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Retro Silver Classic Digital Watch from Casio

A real classic dad needs a real classic Casio timepiece right? This silver digital watch come with a black dial for a casual yet classic look. With this beauty, you’ll always be on time to offer quality advice.

Hal (Bryan Cranston) – Malcolm in the Middle

Hal…. you total legend! Nothing better than a comedy dad right? We’ll if ‘lord of the dads’ was an official title (which it totally should be!), then Hal would be getting our vote for the position.Father to father to Francis, Reese, Malcolm, Dewey, and Jamie, Hal is put to the ultimate test as a dad almost daily with any number of odd goings on. Like a lot of households, he pretty much becomes one of the kids with his much more relaxed approach to life then wife Lois. Proper fun!

Bryan is by no means a one trick pony though…. far from it! He has transformed himself multiple times over the years going from a goof to a disciplined and protecting figure and given award worthy performances (4x Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series & Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series twice) in block buster films and binge-worthy TV shows.

So, what’s he been up to since Malcolm in the Middle left our screen back in 2006? Voicing characters in both Family Guy and American Dad!, Bryan became the face of TV sensation Breaking Bad. We’re not even sure TV sensation even covers what Breaking Bad became. Maybe phenomenon? Masterpiece? Whatever you wish, it was huge and he was truly outstanding throughout.  Since this performance as Walter White, Bryan has starred in cinema hit Godzilla, Drive, Argo, The Infiltrator, Trumbo, and Wakefield to name a few. You won’t be struggling to see Bryan in more screen gold that’s for sure.

Men’s Pokemon Pikachu And Friends Boxer Shorts

What do you get the man who seems to spend a lot of time in his tighty whities? Funky Pokémon pants of course! Sure to add some pizzazz to his casual look.

Steve Stevens (Tom Virtue) – Even Stevens

Everyone loves a quirky Dad right? They think they’re super serious but really, nothing silly they do will ever be a total surprise. Not imagine that Dad’s also a lawyer… we present “Stiffie” Stevens. Running for just a few years from 2000 to 2003 (we know! Total classic gone so soon), Even Stevens remains firmly lodged in our memories as having a super cool intro, weird plot lines and one of the best TV Dads going.

So where has Tom been and where is he now? Well… turns out he’s done some cool stuff! Starring in a whole heap of TV shows including; Nip/Tuck, Entourage, ER, CSI, Sons of Anarchy, The Office (US) and more. Film work you ask? Sure! He has starred in some big titles including Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Iron Man 3. His upcoming work includes TV roles in Conan and I’m Dying Up Here so stay tuned for more peeps!

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Men’s Blue Mr Men Mr Silly T-Shirt

He’s funny, sill and he would look ace in this Mr Men TShirt! Right? Sure to raise a few smiles.

Al Bundy (Ed O’Neill) – Married with Children

Now it’s hard…. nay impossible to talk about classic on screen dads without mentioning the mighty Al Bundy. Husband of Peggy Bundy, father of Kelly and Bud Bundy, Al was your classic grumpy dad. Sure he was mean at times, didn’t always get what he wanted and loved to make fun of people but hey, somehow we forgave him because it was just so damn funny!

So, who was behind Al? Ed O’Neill landed the role back in 1987 and he never looked back. Playing the role for ten years until 1997, Ed later went on to perform in The Bone Collector with Denzel Washington, and a number of TV roles including Big Apple, Dragnet, 8 Simple Rules, The West Wing, and famously Modern Family. Modern Family has grown to become a jewel in ABC’s crown and is still going strong from its launch back in 2009. If you’ve never seen it…. seriously you need it in your life.

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Men’s White Mr Happy Mr Men T-Shirt

…because seeing the king of grumpy rocking a Mr Happy TShirt would be the best things ever right? Yup!

Red Forman (Kurtwood Smith) – That ’70s Show

As TV dads go, sometimes you just need a no-nonsense, good old American one right? Well, look no further then good old Red. Battle hardened and with a classic dry humour, Red truly completed the line-up of That ’70s Show which aired from 1998 to 2006.

But where is old man Red now? Currently living in Glendale, California, Kurtwood is still busier than ever with numerous film roles over the years, and regular TV work including Rick and Morty, Agent Carter and currently Patriot, an American comedy-drama series. If you watch enough TV, you’ll be sure to catch him in something cool.

What Father’s Day Gift would we by him?

Vintage Canvas Captain America Army Wash Bag

He’s a stern military man acting in both World War II veteran Korean War veteran, making our Amy inspired Captain America wash bag a great tribute to his time served…and it’s pretty darn practical too!

Jim Robinson (Alan Dale) – Neighbours

Now this is a classic TV dad! As one of the twelve original Neighbours characters (pretty cool tittle to have right!), where he made his small screen debut on the very first episode of the show ever back in 1985. Father of Paul, Scott, Lucy and Glen, and the husband of Anne Robinson and later Beverly Robinson, it’s safe to say he had a lot on his plate. Never afraid to give an honest answer, Jim loved cars and always tried to put his family first.

Appearing in over 1000 episodes before being dramatically killed off in 1993, Jim was a loud and very memorable character who became a real anchor for the show and the stories within. So, what’s he been up to since he left Ramsay street and where is he now?

Well…. chances are you’ve also probably seen him in something good in recent years too! Working on some hit shows including; The O.C, Lost, 24, NCIS, The West Wing, The X-Files, The Killing, and Homeland, he has also hit the big screen with roles in; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Star Trek: Nemesis, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, aaaand Entourage. Phew!

Currently living in Los Angeles, California, Dale is working on TV show Once Upon a Time.

Awesome 80’s Trivia Cards

As one of the pivotal characters from 80s TV, what better gift than the ultimate 80s challenge with our 80’s Trivia Cards.

Mel Horowitz (Dan Hedaya) – Clueless

If you grew up even around the 90s, the chances are you’ve seen classic movie Clueless a few times over…. each year! Well undoubtedly one of the biggest characters in this modern classic, Mel nails the overprotective, grumpy, stressed out workaholic dad. Protective, hard-working and not afraid to say what he really thought, we know Mel always had his kids interests at heart and worked hard to provide for them. Traditional and grumpy. Classic movie dad!

So what else has he been in and where is he now?? Well, he’s still busy! Working in a number of movies and TV shows, Dan has also worked in theatre with some Broadway performances to his name. Oh yeah. Films you can find in include; Commando, The Addams Family, The Usual Suspects and even Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. You might have just heard of that one. He has also worked on TV classic ER.
