“ Brand: Truffle Shuffle / Type: T-Shirt „
I absolutely love Truffle Shuffle and own quite a few t-shirts from that website. I actually try not to go onto it too often as I always see something that I want when I do. However when I saw this particular t-shirt in a magazine, I had to go straight online and buy it.
I am a big fan of all the 70s/80s retro tees that have been around for the past couple of years, and this is one of my favourite of the whole bunch.
This t-shirt is made from 100% cotton and this particular one is a charcoal grey colour. Personally I would prefer black but I suppose charcoal is about as close as you're going to get. On the front is the words 'cherry coke' with the 'o' in the word 'coke' being formed out of some cherries. Underneath is written 'enjoy the taste of the 80s'. It looks very retro which I love, as I really like the whole 80s look. The bottom of the t-shirt features a pair of lips which are red foil - very striking and pretty.
WEAR AND TEAR
I have mostly worn this with blue bootcut jeans and Converse, for example when I'm out shopping or going somewhere casual like the cinema. I have also worn it with black skinnies, heels and a biker jacket.
This t-shirt is also perfect for just lounging around the house, or even for the gym.
I find that the sleeves are cut quite short, as is the t-shirt itself. I like t-shirts to come down past my waist a little more in order to cover the top of my bum and stomach, and this just stops at the waist. That would be my only complaint about the way the t-shirt is cut, though. Because it is cotton, it feels soft to wear, and the skinny fit is flattering.
The t-shirt has remained in pretty much the same condition I bought it in. The grey colour has not faded, it has not stretched or ripped in the wash, and most importantly, I haven't found that the foil logo on the front has been damaged in any way through general wear and tear or washing.
PRICE & AVAILABILITY
This costs £21.99 and can be purchased from www.truffleshuffle.co.uk. I think that is a very reasonable price given that you probably won't see anyone else wearing this when you're out and about.
This comes in pink as well - and I have to confess I also have the pink version, although not being a girly girl, I think I look ridiculous in the pink one and so haven't gotten much wear out of it. There is also a lighter grey available, and a grey sweatshirt featuring the same logo.
Sizes available are XS, S, M, L and XL. I have noticed that some sizes sell out quickly but Truffle Shuffle seems to replenish its stock often.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS?
I would definitely recommend this t-shirt, as it's comfortable, can be worn with various outfits, looks cute, and is not too expensive.
I haven't worn mine for a while but writing this review has inspired me to dig it out of my t-shirt drawer again!
