For a massive fanboy like me, wearing a t-shirt bearing the name of my beloved isn’t quite enough. I want a band shirt that vibrates on a much more sophisticated frequency of fandom.

That’s why Worn Free are such a leading light in t-shirt design. Their shirts are lovingly restored versions of things you’ve seen your loved ones wearing. Plus they’re made from pre-washed super soft cotton.

I’ve agonised over their catalogue trying to narrow down my favourites and here they are….
