“So shut your fucking mouth till you know the truth…”

This is absolutely fantastic.
But then again when you put together Dexys Midnight Runners, Curva Nord and Casual Connoisseur you wouldn’t expect anything less…
For those new on the ‘scene’, whatever that ‘scene’ might be, Curva Nord was started
by rapscallions around various towns – Phil Thornton, Andy Bird and Ste Connor back in the noughties. As Ste would tell you they produced “boss tee shirts” and indeed they did for a while.
They then appeared to disappear off our radar.
However sometime last summer their paths crossed with those fine chaps from Casual Connoisseur and the idea of reviving the dormant Curva label was discussed.
And in a couple of weeks the first fruits – of what is hoped will be an ongoing collaboration – from CC x CN the ‘Still Searching…’ tee shirt hits the streets.
The image was taken from a 1980 poster for Dexy’s ‘Young Soul Rebels’ Tour and while I could talk all day about DMR I’ll let you investigate for yourself.
However if you are lucky enough to be too young to not know about the God-like Kevin then you’d be advised to check out – 1/3 of Curva Nord – Phil’s blog on Dexys.
I can’t quite agree with him on ‘Don’t Stand Me Down’ but other than that he pretty much nails it…

Meanwhile the tees are available in khaki and white. Professionally screenprinted in Manchester, woven label to left sleeve along with a free button badge.
