This series of British Leyland t-shirts was created by graphic designer and illustrator Roy McCarthy celebrate the memorable advertising from one of the United Kingdom’s most famous (or perhaps infamous) automakers.

There are four t-shirts in the series, they include the Allegro Tee, the 18-22 Tee, the Triumph Tee, and the Ital Tee. Each one is printed on a 100% combed cotton Continental N03 t-shirt offering a slightly fitted cut, quality construction, and they’re all Fair Wear Foundation certified.

Roy McCarthy is from Liverpool in England, he explains that he “spent a large part of his childhood trapped in the back of a succession of Austin Allegros, Triumph Acclaims and Rover 200s, inhaling second-hand smoke and listening to country and western music” – which may explain his interest in oftentimes overlooked British automobiles.

British Leyland T-Shirts

British Leyland was an automobile and engineering conglomerate formed in the UK in the late 1960s when British Motor Holdings and Leyland Motors merged. The company had a deeply troubled history due to a multitude of factors and it turned out many less-then-memorable vehicles. That said, there is a certain blue collar charm to many of the original British Leyland cars, through admittedly I may be biased as I have one sitting in the garage.

The t-shirts are being produced by Everpress and they’re available to be shipped to most countries including the UK, USA, EU, and further afield by first class mail. Each t-shirt costs £20.00 which works out to approximately $26 USD and the first batch is available now.
