T-Shirt Party 072 x Walé Adeyemi: Be Your Own Future

T-Shirt-Party-072-x-Wale-Adeyemi-Be-Your-Own-Future-1

For their latest release, T-Shirt Party work with much loved British designer Walé Adeyemi, re-living his infamous B-side Graffiti Collection through a new T-shirt print.

The graffiti print, a handstyled version of the poem ‘Future’, re-imagined across clothing, headwear and accessories was a big part of B-side’s rise to popularity in the early 2000’s, and a style that would go on to be copied and re-produced numerous times on the highstreet. TSP focus on a small section of the print and the words ‘Be Your Own Future’ for their 72nd release.

The accompanying video features the most memorable piece from the graffiti collection, the denim jacket pictured on David Beckham on the front page of many a British newspaper in 2003. This is an excellent homage to Walé and B-side – certified originators. Pick it up now from T-Shirt Party for £15.

    Can anyone comment on the quality of these tee’s? Some of the prints look decent but they also look like they wouldn’t last a wash.

  • Ash

    I remember every chav had a terrible cap or draw string bag with that print on it. It’s something the world does not need again

  • Matt.t

    I once worked in a shop in Kingston, around 2000/01. Some fella walked in off the street and mugged a paying customer at the till for the last Wale Adeyemi bennie hat. Good times!

  • James

    I bought a T from them a month or 2 ago… wore it once and some of the print had come off and gone on to my hand. It faded after one wash. Yeahhh I wouldn’t recommend this site at all.

  • D-Money

    M, I’ve had a couple of these shirts, fruit of the loom quality and the print fades. After the first wash they look like they’ve been washed a hundred times.

    No hate, just an honest opinion.

  • BigPoppaDarbs

    Yeah i got one a couple months back aswell, quality was terrible. Such a shame, they have some cool prints.

    bit of a shame really. Could have been done really well!

  • Luis Morgan

    Yeah had the eternal love tee ink came off and f’d up other white tees in the wash. the tee also went gray

    £15 all in. soz if your tee messed up. we’re usually pretty good at replacing.

    look, we’re different from other tee labels. if we were like all the rest we’d charge 35 quid for our tees and just do logo rips. if you want quality….. well you might get it one day but for now we’re just messing about with t-shirts and selling the results cheap.

    it is what it is. a gildan tee (we upgraded from fruit of the loom thanks 😉 on a hanger. every week

    not dismissing the quality issues. just trying to put them into perspective. if any experts want to tell me how i can retain the price but up the quality then i’m all ears.

    ps. its important to appreciate how great the fruit of the loom logo is. built in. it’s sadly missed

    Why can’t they just do a better job with the printing? I don’t get it. don’t wanna sound like my dad but surely that’s unacceptable to keep releasing such poor quality?

  • http://www.thediggersltd.co.uk Chris Airplays

    If you get your t’s screen printed and don’t mind losing your margin then you’ll up the quality. Or you could put the price up. I doubt people will mind paying a little more for a product that lasts. Hit me up if you want any advice.

  • DEE.DEE

    JUST WENT ON THE WEBSITE, REALLY UNIQUE WELL THOUGHT OUT DESIGNS IM REALLY FEELING THE CONCEPT BEHIND THE BRAND TOO!!!!!, UP THE QUALITY AND UP THE PRICE BY A FEW POUNDS MATE, I WOULD HAPPILY SPEND 25-30 ON YOUR TEES

  • Dunce

    DEE.DEE

    Yeah i agree, esp when people are spending £25 – £30 quid in places like superdry. I agree, sometimes a higher price makes people feel more secure in the quality. Loved that print, good memories!

  • apeno

    @stanstill: Please SCREENPRINT your tee’s instead of this horrid inkjet iron on steez. The designs are great, no need to do a primark on em though(1 wash and they gone). Glad to hear you upped your t-shirt quality, albiet slighty.

  • HT

    I really like lots of the designs they have produced. The couple of shirts i do own were unfortunately of bad quality which has put me off them. This was a long ol time ago.

  • JC

    Agree with Stan. TSP make no effort to cover up the fact that their tees aren’t the highest quality.

    Since you lot are such a bunch of little fashion gurus you should know that for these kind of prices all you are getting is a effectively a canvas and a print you can wear a couple of times.

  • D-Money

    JC, calm down pal. Don’t let it get to you. Someone asked what the quality was like and people gave their opinions.

    Now take your tongue out of Stans ass.
