i have recently bought that very t-shirt, the actual one john is wearing in the photo. i got it from a girl who was close to the band at the time. it has one or two small holes, and is slightly faded, but is otherwise in pretty good condition.
its by mau mau, but am not sure if it was a one off, or whether they were mass produced.
will get some pics taken tomorrow and post them up.
thank you my friend...from where did you bought? it becasue i would like to buy one for myself...
got it from a lady who was friends with the band back in the day, she got it from john, and i got it from her.
not sure if there were others made, and in what numbers.
no idea where to pick another one up, but good luck!
also have another couple of spike island tops, not the ones actually worn by the band, but the same items, by Roby Sasson.
had them up on the old forum, but this seems like the right thread to re-post them.
john's, front and back. looks better unbuttoned with a decent top underneath, and i should have turned down the collar on the pic.
and mani's, another beauty from Roby Sasson. (gutted the collar is starting to fray!)
you can also admire my very well painted kitchen. incredibly straight edging there i think we can all agree.
damn...i thought it would be larger becasue in the photos its kinda large on him i think...unless John is shorter or whatever...do you know his height?
not a clue how tall he is.
the mani top is longer on me than the mau mau one, and john's red spike island top is longer still.
i am 6 foot, so thats all the vital statistics i can give you.
also, john was 27 at spike island, and i am now 42, so i am probably a bit broader than he was, which will make a bit of difference to the way it sits.
thnx for the info....have you ever met any of them?mani seems like the joker of the band and john always looks like he is shy
met mani a coupla times. a genuine, down to earth bloke.
