Men’s Classic Mini Cooper T Shirts
A Mini History
The classic Mini was introduced in 1959 and soon became a truly iconic piece of British popular culture that is still recognised the world over. Alec Issigonis’ masterpiece had a price tag of just £497 and from the outset the Mini offered good economy, lots of space for its size and incredible handling. The latter was not truly exploited until the arrival of the famous Mini Cooper in 1961 and Cooper S in 1963. Equipped with a tuned version of the A series engine and front disc brakes, the Coopers enjoyed Monte Carlo Rally success and were immortalised on screen in ‘The Italian Job’ in 1969.
The Mini was so well-loved that it found around 6 million buyers and remained in production for over 40 years – in time to see in the new millenium. In fact, it actually outlived the Austin Metro that was supposed to replace it back in 1980!
The Mini Cooper T-Shirt Design
The car featured on this t-shirt is the final version with those striking Cooper bonnet stripes, wide arches and 4 spot lights, in many ways the archetypal Mini Cooper. It is offered as a two colour screen print, with the t-shirt colour making up the colour of the car. Highlights are represented by a translucent white which allows the colour of the shirt to show through. The highlight effect is subtle on lighter t-shirts and more prominent on darker ones. This design concept means that we are able to offer a wide choice of colours from a single print run.
The design is printed onto Gildan Heavy Cotton t-shirts, which are a good quality 185 gsm, regular fit garment. The images above should not be relied upon for colour – this should be selected from those shown below. When making you colour selection, please detail the exact colour name. These are the only colours available. Note that 3XL, 4XL and 5XL are only available in Sport Grey (marl finish), Red, and Royal.
