 Welcome to our first newsletter/ product update. We have had a great first month and have Nine new designs to top up our heroes & legends and general Stoke categories. We also have a great Abdoulaye L’Esprit design that we hope you will like. The recent perfect weather has been ideal for T shirts so why not treat yourself to one of these great designs to wear on your holidays? Also don’t forget Father’s Day – one of our shirts would make a great gift.

Thanks for your support,

Rob & Simon

Heroes, Legends & Classics:

Steino – The Golden One

Steino - The Golden OneWe were spoilt for choice with the many designs that we came up with for the Golden One so we decided to offer three of them! First up is THE GOLDEN ONE. It features Steino in his classic predatory pose having just unleashed another cracker. His famous number 9 and the text “The Golden One” also appear on the design. My recommendation is to have this on a red shirt


Steino Vertical

Steino VerticalOur second tribute to Earl Mark Sean Stein (as his mother christened him).Our less original naming convention of the design describes the layout. a vertical line of text proclaiming STEINO! along with Mark in his red and white stripes. Looks fantastic on a black shirt.


Steino Horizontal

Steino HorizontalAgain not the most inspiring name of a design but this simple duo-toned image captures all that is great about Steino!Simple, effective, and makes a striking impact. A goal ratio of better than 1 in every 2 games ensured that Steino made his Mark on all Stokies memories. Looks great on a red shirt.



SmithThe subject of this design needs no introduction or fanfare, so we’ll keep it simple like the design – SMITH.



Banks of England

Banks of EnglandBanks of England. The Safest pair of hands in the country. This is one Gordon that I would trust never to let anything get past him. A true Stoke City Legend and Hero. There aren’t many players who attract worldwide recognition and would have a game held in their honour some 40 odd years after finishing his career


Abdoulaye – L’esprit – White

Ab Faye - L'esprit WhiteUndoubtedly TP’s best signing from last season. This man has taken on the mantle of centre half cult heroes like Georgie Berry & Denis Smith before him. Again a difficult choice between designs so we have produced both! See below for a full translation.


Abdoulaye – L’esprit – Colour

Ab Faye - L'esprit ColourL’esprit in colour. The text in Abdoulaye Faye’s native tongue says ” Le coeur d’un lion.
l’âme du Senegal, l’esprit de Stoke.” Translated it means The heart of a lion,
The soul of Senegal, The Spirit of Stoke. I am sure we would all agree this text, which alternates in the red, gold and green colours of his countries flag,
captures all that Abdy is about.


Classics from the Lifewear store

After launching we are going through the process of transferring our Classic Lifewear range to the new store.

Here are two of those designs

Six Towns One Soul

Six Towns One SoulFeaturing a Potters kiln and the text Six Towns – One Soul. A statement similar to “vis unita fortior” in the respect that while the six towns maintain their individuality, when put together collectively we have a very strong identity of creativity and a philosophy of work hard, play hard.


Soul on Trent

Soul on TrentSoul on Trent – again features the Potters kiln and is a nod to the Northern Soul scene that Stoke – on – Trent was the hub of back in the late 60’s/ early 70’s. The essence of the Torch and Motown music drove the scene that has recently been revived with regular Northern Soul nights at lots of venues in the area.

Stoke City F.C.      

What a great season

A great season for all Stokies, proving the majority of pundits wrong. It’s been fantastic to see them all retreating back from their initial “worse than Derby” stance to brown nosing TP and his merry men. Enough
publicity oxygen has been given to the likes of Paddy Shower and Talk Shite, but don’t hold your breath; it won’t stop them from doing it again. Burnley next time?

What next for us? I fancy a few high profile players joining the Mighty Potters to help us maintain our Premier League status and to become an established club at this level. Who would have thought that 2 years ago?

Finally, it has been said a few times but once more won’t hurt. Thank you all for playing your part and making us the loudest fans in  the Prem. We are LOUD,
We are PROUD and WE ARE
. It’s been a great experience following Stoke this year. Let’s keep it up for 2009 -2010 and beyond!
