Origin68 – the holy grail of t-shirts

As a girl, I’m always on the look out for a t-shirt I can buy my boyfriend and a couple of months later steal for myself!  So I was pretty pleased when I stumbled upon the Origin68 website, or as its rather aptly named, the holy grail of t-shirts.

Origin68 is the brainchild of two Manchester based t-shirt enthusiasts Matt and Harry. Buoyed on by their hippy ideals that a t-shirt can change the world they set to work designing their art.

The concept behind their t-shirts is that of wearable art, designs that provoke thought in people and make some kind of comment about the world in which we live in.  Their philosophy is that a t-shirt should allow us to express a response to our environment, surroundings, culture, society and hopefully make us look half decent whilst we do it!

We’re loving their latest creation, a collaboration with the now legendary Si Scott.  The design features a dove, the symbol of peace, in Si Scott’s highly intricate, hand-drawn signature style, which can been seen in the images below.

Si Scott has his own characteristic style that combines hand-inked artwork with modern typography.  His prestigious and ever-expanding client list includes the likes of Adidas, Converse, Diesel, Gap, Hugo Boss, Matthew Williamson, Nike and Uniqlo.

Origin68 Continental Clothing tees offer a superior quality and their sizing is pretty much standard, perhaps slightly on the fitted side, just how Stylenerds likes them!  The t-shirts are all very reasonably priced at only £18, you can’t find much better than that!

Unlike many websites, where the shipping can cost almost the price of your entire order, they have a fixed shipping rate of only £2 no matter what you order or where in the world you are based.

The best thing about their tees is that they are Continental Earth Positive t-shirts, which are manufactured to high ethical standards, being climate neutral and organic.

Origin68 also do women’s fit tees, so if you don’t fancy your other half stretching your t-shirt, you can buy one each!

So what are you waiting for? Head over to their website now to bag yourself a great quality organic tee.
