Having recently added some extremely limited edition Tees to our online shop, I’ve noticed a proliferation (or at least a couple) of handsome poppers slipping on their brand new threads and exposing themselves to world. Banging their photos about like it ‘aint no thing’, these icons of style are displaying their handsome torsos to the world, decked in the finest crocodile based record label merchandise money can buy.
And for the hip fashionistas amongst you, allow me to introduce our first model – Coxy, who was so cool that he actually purchased two tees for fear of destroying one (which he has already done with grease). In this awesome pic, illustrating the proverb ‘many hands make light work’ look as he holds CDs and Cat… His is a flickr stream you really should have a look at.
Meanwhile, Bristol based Ben has submitted this magnum opus, after he received his T-Shirt after returning from a holiday in Vienna. Vienna was OK, these threads quite clearly better.
Any other Alcopop related shots would be magnificent to see. It’s so nice to see all your handsome faces. You can purchase one of the last few in the shop for just £8 and look as good as these folk (and remember this design/colour combo will never be repeated)…

Now – although this post is far from an endorsement, or an expression of any real love for a brand I must confess I’ve never actually bought anything from, Alcopop hats are neverthelss suitably tipped to the uiversity outfitters Jack WIlls. You see, the popular retailer (they have one in Oxford doncha know) recently decided that they dug Alcopop enough to come a-calling with empty CD case in hand, to snaffle some of the best loved pop hits from the label.
4 or 5 Magicians, Family Machine, goFASTER>>, Lucy and the Caterpillar and several more were all seized upon by the brand, who are keen to be more of a lifestyle choice (I know this as they say so on their website) promoting hip young things – and streaming them into their shops across the country.
Unfortunatly this han’t meant that myself and Kev have been able to replace our tired old threads with fresh new ones at old uncie Jack’s expense, oh no (if you’re reading Jack’s relatives – please send some natty gear to Jack c/o Alcopop Records) – although it does mean that anyone who shops at Jack Wills is likely to have a nice Alcopop-related surprise next time they’re browsing through pants and jeans and things, which can only be good.
Oh – ad changing the subject totally, if anyone would like to see a summer summation of just some of what Alopop are getting up to this summer without perusing back through many pages of this blog, it’s all nicely summed up in a guest post on the BSM blog for you. Observe here…
