There’s something about wearing a cool printed tee and jeans that just works. But to pull the look off you’ve got to get the right kind of tee, with a print that’s not too quirky, not too commercial, but just cool. If you are, like us, slightly picky when it comes to the t-shirt department then we introduce to you the A.D collection from Topman.

The A.D collection features prints that are inspired by historical events that have shaped the city of London that we know today. With past collections inspired by events such as The Great Plague and the legacy of Jack the Ripper, the A.D collections present tees that combine limited edition prints with talking-point tees.

Speaking about the collection Topman explain that, ‘The great exhibition was staged by Prince Albert and Henry Cole to showcase outstanding exhibits of culture and industry.’ Taking inspiration from this, the tees feature hand printed images of the Koh-i-Noor Diamond, Dageurreotype Photography, Ornate Vignettes and the Destruction of the Burning Glass Structure which had hosted the exhibition.

So when you hear the words, ‘I like the print on your tee..’ you can wow your clothing admirer with an anecdote about Dageurreotype Photography being the first large scale commercial photographic process that, when viewed, a dark surface is reflected into the mirrored silver surface, so the reproduction of detail in sharp photographs is very good.

Not just a pretty tee…

The collection is available now from Topman stores.
