Mr. Becca is amazing sometimes. Granted he can be the Incredible Sulk sometimes but he puts up with me and my obsessions and my talking about random subjects and dogs 24/7 and he loves ratties and when I met him I was dead impressed by his cool range of t-shirts. I’m a sucker for a slogan shirt.
First of course I was introduced to Diesel Sweeties, then Threadless and the novelty that is 1 of 50 Limited Edition Robocop t-shirts because there was nowhere Mr. Becca would not go in search of an amazing t-shirt. They’re his thing.
The only thing he lacked was a t-shirt with a Unicorn on it (or a My Little Pony.). Mr. Becca likes Unicorns, nay loves them. He also likes the colour pink and things with cupcakes on.
And this is why I love Tee and Toast. Because they’re the only place on the interwebs that do amazing t-shirts for Men, (and women too obviously) with great big unicorns on that say ‘I’m Magic’.
Tee and Toast is a website devoted to all things grump free! Or in their own words…
teeandtoast is a funky t-shirt brand based on a quirky sense of humour and the ability to make people smile. we also try as best we can as a small business to be ethically responsible and environmentally friendly in sourcing our materials and packaging. we don’t want to sell you a million t-shirts, just a few that you will want, love and wear forever & ever & ever & ever … something you’ll wear during the fun adventures of your life or to brighten you up on those dull, grey, boring days!
So aforementiond shirt was dutifully bought for Neil at Christmas 08 and he was very excited.
Unfortunately I had seemed to order the wrong size.
Mr. Becca was desperate to wear his new pride and joy at a Pub Standards that was coming up so I dutifully e-mailed Tee and Toast and explained the situation and asked could I possibly replace it. I had the most lovely, friendly e-mail back that just made me fall in love with this company. Lovely owner Claire apologized, explained that it hadn’t been me ordering wrong they had sent out the wrong size during the mad Christmas rush, told me to send it back and they would cover the postage. I did, and within days a shiny new shirt has dropped on our doormat along with a cute little button badge to say sorry! It’s so special to receive great service and this alone makes me want to run to the rooftops and shout out how great this company are.
Going by product as well just gives them the BECCA SEAL OF APPROVAL. The shirts are lovely quality, each hand printed and the imagery is just lovely. Really cute childlike pictures that are great fun but not too cutesy (I’m looking at you Hello Kitty). I especially love the theme of Tea that runs thorough a lot of the products (only wrong heads don’t like Tea!) and I was super chuffed when I got the Mr. T hoodie for my birthday last year! The colour is gorgeous and the print has survived a good few washes without cracking or peeling.
The icing on the cake was the hand commissioned mug Mr. Becca got for me this Christmas. This is a new service T&T have recently started doing, you can basically e-mail them with your requests and Claire will hand paint a mug for you. Knowing my love of Greyhounds and dogs in general, Mr.Becca got me the below and I now have the most gorgeous special mug that no one else in the world has. I think this would make the perfect present for someone special in your life.
Please, please consider buying something from here if you’re after a fun, super individual gift. These guys are fantastic, super friendly and will accommodate most designs, even the fact that next time you order you would a like pink t-shirt with a Unicorn on.
I like to think that teeandtoast are as much fun as you can possibly have with you clothes on.
