For our 21st birthday we're taking a look at some of our favourite store t-shirts over the years, and you can help choose one to make a come back
We've had the great pleasure of working with some incredible artists and designers over the years, some of them friends and local designers like Jon Banthorpe, Bruce Jamieson (Senior Designer at I Love Dust), Rob Trigg (Addict and Palace) and Handsome Steve Windslade. As well as collaborating with some of the best artists in UK skateboarding like Fergus Purcell (Palace, Aries, Tonite, Marc Jacobs), Mark 'Fos' Foster (Heroin Skateboards, Baker, Deathwish, Altamont) and Andrew 'French' Sayer (Witchcraft Skateboards, Death Rites and many more), Rob Mathieson (Carhartt, Girl, Enjoi, Chocolate) and even legendary print artist and paper cut supremo Rob Ryan.
Shop product and store tee's have always been a really important part of Bored of Southsea and it's been incredible to see the continued support that we've had from the local community, and seeing our designs worn with pride across the globe. Some of the collabs have only been made in limited runs and others like the Southsea Bronx Strong Island have been in print continuously since our earlier days, and the Jon B t-shirt has even been re-designed several times with small tweaks made to it and a location change.
So as part of our birthday delve in to the Bored vaults we've picked out 21 of our old shop tee's, and now we're gonna let you choose your favourite from our back catalogue. The design that receives the most votes will be rising like phoenix from the ashes and heading in to production once again. All you've gotta do is pick a favourite and vote below.
Old collabs won't be included in the vote for obvious reasons, so just pick the best from the rest.
