- T-shirt news
This week on a high street in Bristol, a piece of artwork by controversial graffiti artist Banksy artwork appeared, depicting a couple embracing whilst on their mobile phones.
There has been controversy surrounding the artwork, as it has been taken down by a nearby youth club leader just hours after it was found painted.
It will now be held at the local museum whilst its ownership is debated.
Meanwhile Banksy tweeted this week:
Home is where the art is

We think his iconic pieces would be a popular choice of print t on a t-shirt, or even one of his tweets!

Congratulations to 20 of our Clothes2order team who successfully took the plunge in a 131 foot free-fall abseil for the Stroke Association last weekend!
We are really proud of everyone who braved the dizzying heights of the Manchester Velodrome, and for all the money raised for the Stroke Association so far!
Check out the video below to see our team in action.

A mixture of nerves / excitement is hitting the office today as this time tomorrow, 20 of our team will be participating in a 131 foot free-fall abseil at the Manchester Velodrome, in support of The Stroke Association.
We’re really excited to be participating in such an exciting event for a well known cause, close to the hearts of some of our team members.
Yesterday Bartosz (below), one of our highly skilled Direct-to-Garment machine operatives, began printing the t-shirts we’ll be wearing for the abseil…we can’t wait to wear them!
Wish us luck and watch this space for photos of the completed challenge!

Ever thought that dressing down could put you up in other people’s estimations?
Probably not, but new research recently conducted by Harvard Business School has suggested that looking unconventionally casual in a formal setting can boost your social image.
According to the study, looking different and wearing unusual clothes can improve an individual’s social status. For example, wearing a tracksuit or a t-shirt conveys a greater impression of success in a formal setting than conforming to social norms and wearing smarter clothing. As it is deemed easier to conform to social norms by dressing like those around you, making a deliberate effort to stand out from the crowd by wearing something different increases your status and sense of competency.
The study found that assistants in luxury shops were more likely to think that customers in gym tracksuits felt so comfortable and confident in their social status not to need to dress up more and therefore assumed that they were wealthier than others conforming to fashion codes around them, such as a customer in a fur coat.
What do you think about dressing down? Do you think people who dress differently and stand out from the crowd appear wealthier and more confident in their social status?

Looks like we’ll all be wearing tracksuits to work on Monday then!

At the weekend, 16 students from the Royal Northern College of Music broke the Guinness World Record for “The Most Musicians to Play the Same Piano Simultaneously”, and here at Clothes2order we were delighted to provide printed t-shirts for the event!
