If I Were Mayor, T-shirts Would Be Work Wear

Clothing-Commerce Platform Spreadshirt asks; if you were Mayor, what would you do?

London, 17 April 2012, London elects its mayor on 3 May and 11 other UK cities vote in mayoral referendums. So customisable-clothing platform Spreadshirt asks city-dwellers what they would do, if they were Mayor? From the quirky to the straight-forward, ideas in the Spreadshirt Shop currently include:

  • If I Were Mayor there’d be a banker tax
  • If I Were Mayor South London would be independent
  • If I Were Mayor I’d say no to Heathrow 3
  • If I Were Mayor there’d be slides on the Tube
  • If I Were Mayor #riotwombles would get a medal

The Spreadshirt platform means users can customise the standard slogan or choose a ready-made design to voice their opinions in the run-up to polling day. Slogans can then be personalised on a t-shirt, hoody, canvas bag, apron or even babygrow, in a style, size and colour to suit the wearer.

Spreadshirt has recently announced profitable 2011 revenue growth of 43% globally and 20% in the UK. This exceeds the UK internet economy growth rate of 10.9%, outlined by the Boston Consulting Group in a recent report. Global revenue was 45.8m EUR in 2011 and Spreadshirt expects revenues to reach 64m EUR in 2012.
