British streetwear brand Addict launches at TruffleShuffle!

Addict (edikt’; for n. ad’ikt) vt. [< L.ad-,to + dicere, say]
To give (oneself) up (to some strong habit).
1. one addicted, esp.to a past time
2. [Colloq.] a person devoted to something -addic’tion n. – addic’tive adj.
Starting life as a menswear label in 1996, Addict has developed a signature style of streetwear that blends classic casual wear with the performance, quality and functionality of high spec outerwear. The brand has over a decade’s worth of heritage in the streetwear genre, its roots run deep in the design, music and board sports communities crossing over both to the underground and mainstream alike since birth. Long a favourite of the freesports fraternity, Addict is much more than your common or garden clothing range. Despite the rapid growth in popularity and distribution over the years, Addict has a tight, focused team of individuals who are intensely passionate about the brand and keep a tight reign over its development, producing all clothing, graphics and media for the mainline in-house, focusing on product development, letting the brand evolve naturally rather than bending to fit in with fashion.
Addict regularly work with and support a collection of independent highly sought after artists and illustrators on the more limited edition ‘artist series’ ranges. A reflection of their general company ethos, the artists and designers Addict work with are sourced mainly on a social basis. The limited edition artist series tees and related products have seen Addict working with a plethora of contemporary talent including long time collaborators She One, C-Law, Mitch and Swifty, Mode 2, Jimi Crayon, Ben Swift, Guy Featherstone, Shogun™, Will Barras, Mr Jago, and Steff Pleatz to name but a few.

Launching this week of TruffleShuffle is our first drop of tees from their much anticipated instalment of Addict X Star Wars tees, featuring art from long time Addict collaborator Mitchy Bwoy. Staying true & accurate to the original Star Wars designs from the Star Wars Trilogy, this collection of tees show Mitch’s unique, highly detailed, hand drawn vector style which he mixes with a keen colour sense and a healthy dose of ink and spray paint to lethal effect.
“Brought up in the Shires of the North of England, Mitch’s fascination with design and illustration was initiated by a love of comics and the Star Wars phenomenon. His first true influence was Ralph McQuarrie (Star Wars’ chief illustrator) and, much do the disapproval of various art teachers, he spent most of his early years in the realms of fantasy art and graffiti. Concentrating on what he calls ‘hip hop surrealism’ during his design degree, Mitch spent his final degree year working at Swifty’s London studio. As Mitch was already a huge fan of Swifty’s work for Mo Wax and Straight No Chaser magazine, this was a logical progression and served as a valuable apprenticeship. Working from his own London studio over the last 10 years, Mitch has carved his own niche not only in music cover design but also in illustration, fashion and more recently, video production. His work has become synonymous with new music and club culture, working alongside the most prominent musicians of the last decade, including; Amp Fiddler, Bugz in the Attic, Incognito, The Bees, Howie B and many others. In addition, Mitch has worked on many special projects, live paints and collaborations with other artists; 55 Roots for 55 DSL (live paint and group art show with Dragon and Shibuya from Japan), Bacardi brand development (with Mode 2) and Black Twang/We Love You album projects (with Banksy). His reputation has also led to his inclusion in numerous art shows, such as; the Art Basel/ Miami (alongside Doze Green, Swoon, Rostar), Candela Festival/Puerto Rico (with Swifty, Mode 2 and HVW8) and Board / London (with Jamie Hewlett and Pete Fowler).” His series of inter galactic Star Wars designs pay homage to the timeless quality of the original designs featured in the original films released over 30 years ago… Check them all out below….
Men's Black Stormtrooper Graffiti T-Shirt from Addict £24.99
Men's Boba Fett Graffiti T-Shirt from Addict £24.99
Men's Millennium Falcon Blueprint T-Shirt from Addict £19.99
Men's Red At-At Blueprint T-Shirt from Addict £19.99

What’s new Trufflecats?

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!

______________________________________________________________________________

Out Of Print

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!

Fydelity

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.

________________________________________________________________________________

Junk Food

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.

Keep those eyes peeled for even more exciting new brands and collections set to be launched every month.

A [not so] long time ago in a city [not so] far, far away…

Here at TruffleShuffle our range of officially licensed Star Wars T-Shirts & Gifts seems to be growing faster than the Millennium Falcon in hyperdrive. So what better time to give you a quick rundown on some of my favourite t-shirts.

Whether you’re an AT-AT addict, a sucker for a Stormtrooper or go delirious for Darth we have something you’ll love! Our wide range of products owes thanks to some great brands creating even greater designs!! Chunk, Junkfood and Fabric Flavours have created some real gems. Chunk cleverly mix your favourite characters into modern day situations bringing a fun twist to some classic intergalactic stars. Junk Food boast some seriously retro artwork, these will definitely ‘flick the switches’ for all the die-hard Star Wars fans. And don’t think we’ve forgotten about those up and coming Luke Skywalkers as Fabric Flavours has some brilliant t-shirts and babygrows.

With such an ‘out of this world’ collection of brilliant officially licensed Star Wars t-shirts and gifts I thought I’d better pick out some of my highlights.

First off, A surfing Wookie. I can’t imagine paddling to catch that perfect wave when suddenly a wookie ‘drops in’ on you and steals that perfect moment. Luckily, this probably isn’t going to happen but that didn’t stop Chunk creating this amazing design. Yours for just £27.99.

Continuing the sports theme, have you ever wondered what what Yoda’s right hook would feel like? Well, it turns out when he’s not busy being a Jedi master or a DJ for that matter he like nothing more than a few rounds in the ring. This t-shirt from Chunk is an absolute knock out at £27.99

Next is possibly my favourite form of transport. If I could arrive at work in anything it would have to be an AT-AT. This fantastic retro print t-shirt from JunkFood allows all AT-AT addicts to share the love too. £29.99

If you were going to start your own Darkside Race team there is only one group who you’d rely on to be your pit team. They’re already dressed to comply with current health and safety regulations so they only need to be taught how to change a tyre. And in this fab Chunk print they appear to be doing a fantastic job. But then with a ruthless boss like Darth Vader watching, wouldn’t you? £27.99

With so much to choose why not go and check out even more styles here.
