Everyone has certain songs that mean something to them from whilst they were growing up. I know that for me hearing Frankie’s Two Tribes takes me straight back to 1984 and Harveys nightclub on the seafront at Morecambe.
Of course you don’t need to have been born in the 60’s or 70’s to be a fan of 80’s pop culture. Popularity of festivals like Rewind span across generations. So we were really pleased that Dropscotch, a localy based design brand, have chosen Inspire Gifts & Gallery to be their local retailer of retro inspired T’s. Because of the originality of their 80’s inspired designs Dropscotch have built a cult following that you can check out for yourself on Instagram.
Dropscotch T-shrts now available
We currently stock two of their high quality t-shirts which are made from 100% ringspun cotton and which are hand screen printed. All our t-shirts come from fairwear.org certified suppliers, so you know they are ethically sourced too. Not only do you get a cool design you are getting quality which you usually only associate with on high end brands.
Sade or Prince?
Getting the size right isn’t a problem because both designs are available in s, m, l and xl sizing. The Prince design t-shirt features a purple and white graphic which is unmistakably “Prince”. Dropscotch have chosen a white T for the Sade design which has a black, white and mint green graphic that incorporates four immediately identifiable words that feature on her 1984 classic hit, Smooth Operator.
We think that this combination of quality and design make these t-shirts designed to last, and also makes them destined to become collectors items in their own right. These short print run T’s are available to buy now in our online shop.
