Wish I could get my hands on some ESL shirts. I worship that album.

Out of focus print and with pointless gaps everywhere?  :)
Why isn't there a sarcasm font?

They haven't had a T-shirt in years and years that I didn't think was bloody awful.
Mostly they've been pseudo Metal-ish hideous black numbers. All this skull-shit - yuck.


Well quite. Given how many iconic graphics and distinctive logos they've had, Rush has missed an opportunity to design decent t-shirts. Which reminds me of Danforth & Pape, who have been making classy, subtle Rush themed t-shirts for a year or so. They avoid using images and logos from the album covers - I suspect that's to avoid a legal letter from Anthem. https://www.facebook.com/DanforthandPape

I rather liked the Counterparts Adam & Eve t-shirt, but the gold print corroded the fabric and the shirt fell apart. Doh.

Not an official one but  the Guinness shirt done for the Dublin dates, far better than the official TMT merch. Unfortunately a mouse ate the front of mine.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

The Guinness one was very clever... Never got one though, being a devout Muslim and all that....
Anger is a gift.

Must say I do like some of the designs on that site - Le Studio one is excellent.
I seem to recall our very own Neph designs and makes his own rather classy subtle Rush shirts too.
