The Great Gastby Out This Thursday!

With the new movie due to be released in a matter of days we are excitingly awaiting being able to wear our The Great Gatsby T-Shirts!

An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire)is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.

Men's Blue F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby Novel T-Shirt £27.99 (also available for ladies!)
Men's Blue F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby Novel T-Shirt £27.99 (also available for ladies!)
Ladies Blue F. Scott Fitzgerald Great Gatsby Lustig Cover T-Shirt £27.99 (also available for men!)
Ladies Blue F. Scott Fitzgerald Great Gatsby Lustig Cover T-Shirt £27.99 (also available for men!)

A few things you might not know about the book/film:

  • One alternate title for the book was, “Under the Red, White, and Blue”
  • Fitzgerald was so impressed by the cover art that he rewrote parts of the novel so as to fit the cover more accurately (i.e. he placed more emphasis on Dr. TJ Eckleburg)
  • The poet who was credited with writing the epigraph, Thomas Parke D’invilliers, never existed, and is actually a character from one of Fitzgerald’s other novels, This Side of Paradise
  • The Valley of Ashes was a real place
  • Ironically, the majority of this quintessential American novel was written while Fitzgerald was living in France

Originally written in 1925, this book has certainly stood the test of time and we cant wait to see the new film in UK cinemas on Thursday, which t shirt from our vast collection of Movie T-Shirts will you be wearing to show your appreciation for this classic?

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.
