Spreadshirt’s Quick Reaction to Skinner Posh Boy Jibe

Quote on Clothing the Same Day

London, 26 April 2012, Online clothing-commerce platform, Spreadshirt, enabled Fleet Street Fox to react quickly to events yesterday, when Dennis Skinner MP suggested at Prime Minister Questions that, “when posh boys are in trouble they sack the servants”. The slogan was on t-shirts on the site by late afternoon. The jibe harks back to a pre-election Guardian competition featuring the Step Outside Posh Boy poster.

Spreadshirt’s customised-clothing and print-on-demand technology means that its shop partners and brands can keep their sites fresh and topical, by quickly uploading new designs, encouraging fans and advocates to visit.

In late March, Spreadshirt UK shop partners responded with humour to #pastygate, adapting the Keep Calm And Carry On design to combine the pasty, petrol and stamp stories: https://pasty.spreadshirt.co.uk/
