Get Some Vintage Cool With Our Top 7 Tees From The 70s…

Here at TruffleShuffle, while it’s no big secret that we luuuuurrrve everything 80s (did you spot it yet?), there’s is no denying our passion for the good old 70s!
Yes the decade that gave us Space Hoppers, Flares, View-Masters, The Wombles and of course Roller Skates to name a few is surely something worth celebrating. Can you really imagine your music collections alone without some of the classics from this decade? We sure can’t!

To help tip our caps to this wonderful decade, we thought we would show you guys some of our favourite tees that we currently have in stock from and around this wonderful time. So! Without further delay, check out our Top 7 Tees From The 70s!

Jaws TShirt

A real piece of cinema gold right here with Spielberg’s cult classic Jaws. The tale of a huuuuuge killer shark that is terrorising the small island community of Amity is one that many of us will remember. Usually it’s being pretty terrified and at least having a slight nervousness about getting into the sea for a little while (we sure did anyways!). A sure fire way to tell the awesomeness of a film we think is the simple things people remember, for this it’s the iconic theme tune which still sends shivers down our spines and of course the classic line…..”We’re going to need a bigger boat”, just two reasons alone to love this 70s legend.

Star Wars A New Hope TShirt

Star Wars, A New Hope, was released in 1977 and was where it all began (in movie terms at least)! Introducing us into the weird and wonderful worlds of the Star Wars franchise, this was our very first taste of the sci-fi legend that it was about to become along with it’s ground breaking special effects and amazing score. Quickly becoming one of the most successful films ever made, A New Hope is also considered one of the most influential also and it’s sure earned its place in our film and tshirt collections.

David Bowie Aladdin Sane TShirt

The sixth studio album released by David Bowie in 1973, Aladdin Sane, featured a whole host of amazing tracks such as The Jean Genie and Let’s Spend The Night Together and is an absolute must have in any fan’s collection. So much more than an icon of music, this album artwork has grown to become a fashion icon and has been a festival favourite for longer than we can remember.

Grease Tell Me About It Stud TShirt

Grease Lightnin! Packed with slick hair, cool rides and some of the most dance floor filling songs ever created (during our school discos anyway), Grease is so much more than a film, it was a sensation! Still one of the highest grossing musicals ever made, Grease won the hearts of people everywhere and certainly inspired many a school performance of two.

Queen TShirt

They May be called Queen, but they’re sure the Kings of music in our eyes! Arguably one of THE best bands to have ever been with one of the most iconic front men to ever live, Queen are more responsible for some of the biggest rock songs ever written and some of the most legendary live performances. It’s hard to quantify the influence Queen had on people all over the world, whether it’s music people will listen to their whole lives, or its influence on music that had been written since or is yet to be written. We bow at the majesty of Queen.

Doctor Who Tardis Swirl TShirt

Quite possible one of THEEE most followed and loved shows to have ever hit the small screen, in the 70s, Dr Who was simply huuuuge in the 70s. With perhaps arguably the most iconic Doctor generations to date Jon Pertwee (1970-74) and Tom Baker (1975-81), Doctor Who hit our screen in wonderful colour for the first time and saw bigger and better special effects than ever before. Back then you didn’t just catch Doctor who on the off chance, you HAD to be in and ready for the opening sequence to start. If you missed it….you had failed. Basically 🙂

Rolling Stones Tongue TShirt

Now some bands are big, some are pretty huge, but very few reach the true status of legends. The Rolling Stones are one such legendary band. With some of the most iconic tracks under their belt including Sticky Fingers, Goats Head Soup, It’s Only Rock N Roll and Black and Blue, The Rolling Stones rocked the globe throughout the 70s and certainly had their share of back stage stories. We’ll let you look them up yourselves.

So there you have them folks! Just a little teaser of some of our favourite 70s tees that are rocking it over at TruffleShuffle.com. To check out the rest of our range, pop on over there and find the perfect vintage tshirt for you.

We love TruffleShuffle tees just as much as you do!

Working for the biggest online retailer of cool t-shirts, we see our fair share of amazing tees hit the shelves…! But which ones have stuck out? Do we have a favourite..and why do we love them so much? I’ve grabbed 10 minutes with a few of my favourite TruffleShufflers and asked them about their fashion tee-ndencies while they’ve worked here, and what generally makes them tick when it comes to the world of retro! Enjoy!

First up is James, the designer for TruffleShuffle (he’s the one responsible for all the cool t-shirts – so we should probably take 5 minutes to applaud his geniusness!)

Out of Print t-shirts

Favourite t-shirt ever produced? – Old Skool Gamer T-Shirt.  I’ve been a massive computer game fan since I was about 10, so to get the opportunity to design a T-Shirt featuring all my favourite consoles and controllers was a bit of a treat.

Favourite range you’ve ever designed? – Sesame Street is always really fun to work with, they’ve got such a versatile range of characters and we’re always allowed to do quite weird and wonderful things with them.  Whether we’ve got Elmo and the gang crossing Abbey Road, joining a rock group or even recreating the Trainspotting movie poster they always make it look cool!

What was your first t-shirt ever purchased from TruffleShuffle? – My first T-Shirt from TruffleShuffle was one featuring Pac-Man and one of the Ghosts taking over Tokyo, it managed to look retro and modern at the same time and is still one of the favourite items in my wardrobe!  It came from Chunk clothing who are always experts in doing weird mash ups with their characters.

Secondly we have the ever so beautiful Lucy, the buyer here at TruffleShuffle. She’s also responsible for all the coolness on the site – so be nice to her. If you want to bribe her into stocking something, chocolate and jewellery will definitely earn you some brownie points!

TruffleShuffle t-shirts

Favourite item you’ve ever sourced for TruffleShuffle? – The brand, Mr Gugu & Miss Go. It’s a really new, crazy, quirky and punchy range which makes a real statement. We like to keep things fresh and exciting on TruffleShuffle.com and this brand offers funky, psychedelic and kitsch retro influences, teamed with modern technology, creating cool, vibrant all over prints for an edgy, hipster look! My fave has to be the crazy cat!

Who’s your favourite celebrity ever spotted in TruffleShuffle clobber? – I think Cara Delevingne has a really fab look and always looks great in a retro tee!

Sum up TruffleShuffle in 5 words? – Nostalgic, Fun, Individual, Quirky, Awesome!

Next up is Amy, she’s responsible for overseeing the whole operation when it comes to your goods hitting the shelves…! She’ was the first ever member of staff here at TruffleShuffle (to be honest, I think she’s just waiting for the day we stock high heels…she doesn’t love us at all. It’s all about the shoes!)

Grease t-shirts

So the Goonies kick-started it all for TruffleShuffle, but what’s your fave retro movie? – Mrs Doubtfire (1993!)

What item from TruffleShuffle are you lusting over at the moment? –  http://www.truffleshuffle.co.uk/store/ladies-roald-dahl-matilda-tshirt-p-11883.html coming soon – can’t wait!

Who’s your favourite Disney princess? – Cinderella (Ultimate Disney glam!)

Next up is Iain, he’s in charge of marketing! He is responsible for all the cool stuff happening on our social networking sites.

Movie t-shirts

If you could be an extra in any 80’s film, which would you choose? It would have to be Star Wars in Return of The Jedi, getting to dress up as a Stormtrooper would be so much fun. I’d make sure I didn’t pump my head though. D’oh!

Out of all the TruffleShuffle tees you have, what one gets the most comments? – Most comments? Hmmm probably my Tommy Cooper T-Shirt, I think he’s such a beloved comedian and not too often seen on screen these days sadly. Seeing it instantly reminds people of how amazing he was perhaps.

Favourite band from the 80’s?  – WOW that’s a tricky one, torn between Metallica and Queen…I’m going to say Queen. I’ve always loved their sound and really believe they helped shape music even up to today. Legends.

Lee, our photographer wears aloooot of cool t-shirts so he’s next on our quiz hit list.

Music t-shirts

Biggest fashion faux paux of your childhood? Basin hair cut. My mum was so good at it though she didn’t need the basin to cut around

Last thing you bought from TruffleShuffle? Beastie Boys Robot T-shirt

Who would win in a fight…Superman or Batman, more importantly…why? Batman because as he is a member of the Justice League he knows all Superman’s strengths and weaknesses and habits, Plus Batman has possession of a kryptonite ring which would be able to leave Superman helpless.

There you have it…! All our favourite stuff summed up! What’s your favourite TruffleShuffle t-shirt, past or present?
