I made this classic shirt as a talisman to ward off evil. We’ll call him ‘Toby’. Toby isn’t like other cats. This is because he has one paw in the land of the living and one on the other side. Sometimes I whisper ‘just move towards the light Toby’ when I think nobody is looking. When he really dies everyone will hate me.
The shirt has a self-lined back yoke, back pleat, vented cuffs and classic shirt collar.
The fabric is a fake newspaper about cats, for cats. There are lots of hilarious tales regarding their exploits but my favourite one is about a cat in space. Because frankly, that is the best place for them.
