Win a Movie inspired T-shirt from Last Exit To Nowhere!

We’ve teamed up with Last Exit To Nowhere to offer 10 lucky winners a T-shirt of their choice from the ever-growing range available online at lastexittonowhere.com

From its earliest days, Hollywood has been slipping in-jokes into its movies, a nod to the wise; a certain something that film buffs can relate to whilst passing most of the audience by. Until recently however, film related T-shirts were as subtle as a sledgehammer – quite rightly, turning up at the pub wearing one that depicted a neon effigy of Yoda deserved a slap from your pals! Thank heavens for the geniuses at Last Exit to Nowhere whose range of T-shirts featuring movie related logos, businesses and locations allows even the most geeky of movie nerds to show their devotion to their favourite flick without looking, well, like a geek! Ultra-stylish yet cunningly subtle, the T-shirt’s reference will only be picked up on by those in the know; everyone else will just think you dress well!

From Alien to WithNail & I, via Shaun of the Dead and The Goonies, new designs are constantly being added, so showing some love for your favourite has never been easier. Ever wanted to be one of the ‘Little Lebowski Urban Achievers’ or how about sporting a souvenir from that summer you spent on Amity Island, now’s your chance!

RIP IT UP

Rip It Up Review - April 2009

Adelaide’s style magazine Rip It Up contacted us for an interview about the idea behind Last Exit to Nowhere. Here’s a snippet of what was said:

“Rip It Up has stumbled upon the greatest film T-shirt company on the web, designed especially for movie fans wanting something that cuts a little bit deeper than simply having a Hollywood star’s grinning mug on your chest. Last Exit To Nowhere specialise in T-shirts and hoodies emblazoned with obscure logo and designs from your favourite cult films, whether they be Fight Club, Aliens or Shaun of the Dead” Rip It Up gets the goss from founder, Mike Ford. Q: How long have you been around for and what spurred you into action? A: Last Exit is an idea I’ve been playing with for about four years. It evolved from an interest in designing band T-shirts, travelling and a love of great films. Q: It looks like you’ve got some cool celebrities donning your gear now – which celebrity would you like to get on board? A: “It’s great having Simon Pegg supporting what we do, also Andrew Stanton (Toy Story/WALL-E) is a big fan. I guess the ultimate would be Barack Obama wearing our Weyland Yutani T-Shirt – now that really would be something!”

IRISH TIMES

Irish Times

Davin O’Dwyer from The Irish Times writes a great piece about Last Exit to Nowhere in last Saturday’s edition:

Fashion for film buffs
Davin O’Dwyer

Music fans have long had rich pickings in the T-shirt stakes, but for the obsessive movie buff, designs are usually restricted to unimaginative renderings of movie titles, as if wearing a film poster was sartorially acceptable. For those who would like to wear their film fandom on their chest in a less conspicuous fashion, Last Exit to Nowhere is for you.

The brainchild of graphic designer and movie fan Mike Ford, Last Exit produces Tees featuring the logos and branding of all those fictional places and products that populate the movie universe, from the sci-fi megacorporations from Alien, Blade Runner and Terminator to the humble pubs from Shaun of the Dead and Withnail and I . Best of all, the designs display a real fidelity to the aesthetic of the movies, so the logo for Dapper Dan, George Clooney’s hair pomade from O Brother, Where Art Thou?, is a worn and battered 1930s design (above), while the tourist T-shirt for Amity Island, terrorised by that scary shark in Jaws , is pure 1970s iconography. For serious movie geeks, these shirts are esoteric in the coolest possible way. The shirts cost £18 (€19.83), not including postage, from www.lastexittonowhere.com.

We were recently sent this great picture of Simon Pegg sporting our Dawn of the Dead homage T-shirt from September’s Geek Monthly. Nice.
