Would you like to see classic / vintage MSP T-shirts reprinted?

Hi Everyone,

We hope that you are all well!

At R*E*P*E*A*T Fanzine, we have just started a Twitter poll https://twitter.com/RichardREPEAT (and fans are also discussing this on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/repeatfanzine/) to ask if, as some artists / bands have started reprinting classic / vintage T-shirt designs, would you like to see the Manic Street Preachers do the same?

A thorough history of MSP T-shirts can be found at the ever amazing MSPpedia http://www.foreverdelayed.org.uk/msp...ndise#Clothing

You may know how some of these garments can sell for huge sums of money nowadays in used condition! So, if there is enough interest, we are hoping to submit the results to Hall or Nothing for the band, their management and record label to see.

We think it would be fantastic if genuine fans could buy brand new T-shirts at a reasonable price, featuring reprints of classic designs.

Do you have any favourites that you would love to own?

Thank you as always for your time and Stay Beautiful.

R*E*P*E*A*T

The green long sleeve Slash & Burn cover. With a quote in the back: "It's not that I can't find worth in anything. It's just that I can't find worth in enough"

I've no idea where it is, but I think I used to have a bootleg calendar of the band!
Is one of the pictures a close up of James winking?
And Nicky bored shitless pulling his lip?
And that NME Christmas outtake picture.
It might not be bootleg. It might have been what they officially released! They were such terrible photographs.
Although a calender of prints from the GATS box? Take my money on that one!
Really fucking bizarre having Manic Calendars! And yet with RIF they've blown a Calendar of album covers money spinner!
Not on Twitter, if reprinted will probably go by time I get the cash.

Some T-shirts missing from that link (unless my eyes deceive me), notably the THB Cunt-Cock one. Also the "valley boy" Truth shirt and the EMG-era fleece.

As for would I buy reissues? I'd be tempted by a replacement YLU Molotov Cocktails, and I'd maybe pick up a couple of others.

It's not a "vintage" one as such, but the 2005 PPF tour "God Save the Manics" shirt (the God Save the Queen Sex pistols cover, with Nicky Wire as the queen) is one I'd love to buy again, as mine finally gave up on me a few years ago, and I miss it.

The skinny fit navy blue lifeblood t-shirt from the lifeblood/PPF tour in a not so skinny size would be nice. I love that shirt but too fat for it now 😔

This is a great idea and i hope the management takes it onboard. Good job.
