PRINTED Shaka Wear x TRiCKETT T-Shirt



An official collaboration between TRiCKETT and Shaka Wear wasn’t necessarily on the cards for 2024, but here we are. Our friends from Los Angeles got in touch and made us our own specification, plain white t-shirt with our own custom-made tag in the neck. I mean for teenage Iain Trickett this is about as exciting as it gets. It is a thanks from Shaka Wear for us being the only stockist in the whole of Europe and for paying our bills on time… I think. Anyways, on with the show!

The print for the tops is inspired by my love of ’90s graphics and a well known lemonade character, these tops pay homage to a young Iain Trickett, sat in his bedroom in Accrington wondering where he can get those ‘high-necked t-shirts that West Coast rappers wear.’

Let me take you all the way back to 1997 when a young, impressionable Iain Trickett was sat in his bedroom listening to Snoop Dogg and reading the Source. In that particular issue there was a poster of Snoop wearing this high-necked, slightly loose, super-heavy fabric, boxy t-shirt in a crisp white and he looked absolutely amazing. From that point forward I made it my mission to find this t-shirt. About 6 years later, I found the exact t-shirt whilst browsing a shop in Florida and for me, t-shirts have never been the same.

Shaka Wear t-shirts have been the preferred choice of Californian t-shirt connoisseurs for decades because they have a neck- hugging neckline, loose sleeves, a WHOPPING 250gsm fabric and just launder really well. In fact, my all-time favourite t-shirt (Mr. Cartoon tattoo shop) is printed on one of these and it looks just as good as the day I bought it… minus the curry stain from 2019.

Our friend in LA also mentioned that, unlike competitors, Shaka has two rows of stitching around the neck for extra ruggedness. The sizing is a little different to our usual sizing, so make sure to check the size chart.

Everyone from Jay-Z to Dr. Dre to Snoop and everyone else has been spotted in one of these at one time or another and for £21, I am not sure you can do better… unlike Dr. Dre when he made the Chronic and then the Chronic 2001… but let’s not split hairs.

Fabric made in the USA, t-shirts manufactured in Honduras.
