Welcome to our 'All Things MOD' category.
This is the newest British Born Tees t-shirt range and we will be adding to it over the coming weeks.
We have several designers who are working on ideas so watch this space. But 'as usual' if you have any great ideas for a new t-shirt design please let us know. You may even win yourself the very first one off the press, should we go on to make them.
What is a Mod? ..., I hear 'young people' ask.
Mods are part of a subculture which started in the early 1960's and the style is focused both on music and fashion.
A stylish part of the culture often includes tailor-made suits along with music (which includes soul, ska and R&B). Another part of the style often evolves around motor scooters (usually Lambretta's or Vespa's).
In recent times, the music has appreciated a bit of a comeback with the resurgance of bands like The Who. Not coincidentally, some of the recent publicity towards the band has followed use of their songs on the various American CSI shows around the world. This together with recent performaces by them at Hyde Park etc, (which was truly fantastic by the way.., I was there!) has helped bring Mods back into vogue.
All the designs in this section are 100% unique. They have been designed by talented tattoo artists such as 'Stuart' from SirInksAlot, so they absolutely cannot be found anywhere else; either in shops or on the internet. So if you see them being sold by anyone other than British Born Tees get in touch immediately. We will give you a free t-shirt for your trouble before getting our solicitors to take action against them.
