I love receiving items through the post… it is so much more like getting a present than when you buy in the shops… even if it’s not for you! So when my postman popped this package through my letterbox last week I was all a tingle with anticipation…
In terms of packaging the T-shirt leaves a lot to be desired. With a £24 price tag it would have been nice for it to come wrapped in more than a clear cellophane bag. However, once I got over the initial disappointment of the packaging my opinion of the product improved.
The T-shirt is made of 100 % cotton, has been tested for harmful chemicals and carries the fair wear foundation logo, asserting its eco credentials. The fit is spot on, fitting my husband’s medium sized frame with a medium sized t-shirt and the cotton is soft and comfortable. The t-shirt is part of a range of captioned t-shirts by the designer Sarah J Miller.
The full text on the front says “I AM NOT AWAKE YET DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT TALKING TO ME” which, apart from missing some punctuation was very apt for its wearer. My husband’s shift work means that every 3 weeks he has to manage a group of warehouse workers from 6am until 2pm. He has taken to wearing this as an early warning of his potential grumpiness! That is the beauty of this t-shirt; it manages to be witty without being offensive, which cannot be said of many slogan t-shirts nowadays.
The t-shirt comes in red, navy or black with 2 children’s and 5 adult sizes available. It can be purchased from ‘notonthehighstreet.com’. At £24 with free delivery and free gift wrapping this is maybe a more considered item as opposed to a stocking filler.
RRP: £24 (with free delivery).
