“ Brand: Truffle Shuffle / Type: Ladies Printed T-Shirt „
Truffle Shuffle used to be one of those sites thats Id always browse on but for some reason never buy anything from - just like Boohoo used to be. But when I took the plunge and decided to buy my first T.S shirt I decided to make it one of my regular sites and it is now one that I buy from all the time - the shirts are SO cute and retro and the quality is always amazing so why shouldnt I spend a large bulk of my wages on there - anything to justify spending right? Anyway the latest top to catch my eye was this 'Truffle Shuffle Pinky & The Brain T-Shirt' simply because I used to LOVE Pinky & The Brain when I was a kid. I always hoped that one day they would be able to take over the world so I thought Id help them in their quest by buying this t-shirt - Ill always be a kid at heart and P&TB definitely reminds me of being a kid.
Price: £19.99 + 1.95 P&P
Sizes: Available in Small, Medium, Large & Extra Large.
Other Info: This has lettering on both the front and the back so when washing this I recommend doing so on a low setting and with the top inside out - that will ensure the lettering doesnt peel off or fade. This top is made from 100% cotton so it should feel lovely and soft against your skin - and its sure to raise a giggle from anyone who remembers the TV show.
*The sizing on Truffle Shuffle always depends on the piece of clothing as they have a special guide for each piece - FOLLOW THE GUIDE! I always have and the clothes have always fit me perfectly so they do know what they are talking about. For example - I was told that women who are a 8-10 dress size like I am should opt for the Medium size so I did and this fits like a dream. Always follow the guide in my opinion - for me its never been wrong!*
As with buying anything online you want to know whether it looks as good in real life and in my opinion this one actually looks better - so what you see isnt as good as what you get which is brilliant! The t-shirt is medium navy colour all over which is ever so slightly faded to add to the design - it doesnt make it look old though its distressed enough to make it look casual and comfy without looking like youve washed it too many times. The faded look actually makes the design look much better in my opinion so the longer you own this the better it will look - that hardly ever happens with any clothes! The fit of this on me is brilliant as it is tight in some places but baggy enough to still feel comfortable and casual - which is the whole reason I bought it. The sleeves go down about mid way between my elbow and shoulder and they are quite fitted but you still have enough wiggle room and no hunched over feeling. The neck is rounded so it comes up a little higher than most tops I wear but its nice to cover up a little bit sometimes and the bottom is long enough to cover you stomach without riding up and just sits nicely over the waistband of my jeans - the perfect fit for me really so Im glad I followed T.S's size guide.
On the front on the shirt is the main image of Pinky - looking as gormless as ever - and Brain plotting how to take over the world as they always were in the show. Also on the front in pink cartoon type lettering is the words 'Gee, Brain. What Are We Going To Do Tonight?' which if you watched the show you will know is something Pinky said quite regularly - once an episode in fact so if you were a 90's kid you will definitely remember the phrase and Brain's answer which is printed on the back. In the same lettering on the back of the shirt you will find Brain's reply of 'The Same Thing We Do Every Night: Try To Take Over The World!' Now when I bought this I didnt realise it had that quote on the back so when I got it I was very impressed - it made the top even cuter in my opinion and brings back some very fond childhood memories of watching P&TB after I finished school, wondering whether today would be the day that they finally took over the world! The image and lettering are both in white & pink which means it stands out from the black shirt really well and is instantly noticable. Now some tops Ive bought with words/images on them like this one have ended up peeling off after a few washes so they arent really wearable anymore but I havent had that problem with this one so far. The words and image are sitll as they were when I bought this - around 2 months ago - and Ive worn and washed this loads since then so I cant see it peeling or falling off anytime soon. The design and fit of this short are gorgeous I think and Im so glad I found this one! The quality seems very good to me so far as it hasnt faded any more than it was at first and the image/words are still intact so Im very happy so far!
As the colours on this shirt are very neutral it means it can be worn with any style of clothing and pretty much any colour - Ive been wearing this with loads of stuff since I bought it. I prefer to wear this on a more casual day with jeans and a leather jacket as I think it suits that style best but I dont see any reason why this couldnt be worn with heels on a night out - it is better for casual days but it can be dressed up a little bit if you wanted to wear this out at night. Its a very versatile shirt which I have to say I wasnt expecting when I bought it - I thought Id only be wearing this in the daytime so Ive been quiet shocked. And Ive been having so many nice comments on this since Ive been wearing it - everyone just loves Pinky & The Brain they were just fab LOL.
I highly recommend this t-shirt to anyone because the design and fit of this are amazing. Fans of the TV show will love the image and quotes on this top - Im so happy I bought this and I ope it lasts me a very long time to come - highly recommended.
Thanks For Reading.
