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.

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.

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.

Always interested to read about 90s clothing.

I bought a MAU MAU jacket back in 91 or 92. My friends and I all used to buy our clothes from Drivers Menwear in Northampton as he used to stock the same brands as a lot of the Manchester bands were wearing at the time. I still own a few pieces as cant bring myself to throw them away. But like the scene most if not all those brands are long gone now.

Interested to hear about Roby Sasson... the only info I could find...

By the sounds of it could be very collectable.

have a few tops of his. i posted some pics to his website, and asked if he had any spares knocking around. he actually replied and said he would have a look! never heard another peep off him though.
