Chunk – Clever T shirt design – North London


Like all good ideas, the idea for Chunk came about one Friday night in the pub, back in the heady days of September 2000.


Quote: “A friend had just bought an old Ford Capri MkI and with it, came a Haynes manual. So proud was she of her new purchase, she took the manual to the pub where we all sat around admiring the cover until someone said “wouldn’t that look great on a T-shirt”. And that, as they say, was that. Chunk launched and was quickly noticed by the leading stores: Harvey Nichols, The Dispensary, Richmond Classics, and the name and the range grew quickly. We gave up our jobs, sold our houses and concentrated on making Chunk a great UK brand.

We moved into the first Chunk Towers (a 200sq ft room in Shoreditch with a glass roof and no heating) which we quickly outgrew, so we moved into the existing Chunk Towers, a 47 storey building with flags flying from the roof and marble lions by the door in that trendy area, Tottenham, North London. From the outset, our ethos was to produce excellent quality garments at a fair price. We wanted Chunk to use iconic images and adapt them to put them in different contexts, make them clever or funny or quirky.

We wanted the clothing to be detailed and well thought through. We wanted Chunk to bring clever design and a bit of fun to fashion.

Six years later and Chunk now produces two seasonal collections a year, two injection ranges and new T-shirt designs every 12 weeks”.

What it feels like to be Borny

Hello. Welcome to


“This is our new home. The door is always open. Come in, relax, get comfortable. There is no work to be done, because if you wanted to be working you wouldn’t be here in the first place, right?”

That’s what it feels like when you’re Borny. Those moments when your mind wanders. Those moments at your desk when you can’t wait for the day to end and the evening to begin. Those nights when you’re out and all you want to do is drag the person you’re with all the way home straight away. When you’re bored and you start flicking through that mental flick book of mischief in the back of your mind, thinking about making some more. When all you want to do is down tools and get dirty. That’s when you’re Borny.

Everyone gets Borny. Borny is knowing that a part of the weekend never dies. Borny is where work ends and play begins.

And so this site, our home, is for everyone. Because, to paraphrase a soft rock standard, Borny is more than a feeling. Borny is the name of the newest, coolest clothes in town. Tees, jeans and underwear for sexy, stylish men and women who know what it is to be Borny… maybe a little too often.

We do.

So, like we said, come in, relax, have a look around. There is a little shop full of our latest designs modeled by the faces of Borny, people so sexy it’s criminal. There are our party snaps, videos, music and loads more for you to explore.

Remember, we know how you feel.

Pink and Lilly – T-shirts, hoods and sweats

You’ve launched your range of T-shirts; you’ve added to the collection with a few hoods, sweats, and maybe some headwear; but how do you then begin to convince retailers you’re an established clothing brand? That’s going to mean jackets, denim, knitwear, some proper ladies wear and the rest.

Pink and Lilly

A top end pair of denim jeans out of China can still cost £15.00 with a 1000 piece minimum, so unless your surname is Branson or Gates you’re about to hit the glass ceiling that awaits all small to medium size brands.

Now what? Well there is a half way house, where you can get a nice cup of tea and a leg up to the next level. Pink and Lilly bespoke manufacture all manner of more structured tackle, that will help you convince the big knobs that you’re on your way to becoming a major player. Customization, re-labelling, brand new garment patterns – it’s all do-able.

Fill them in on your plan for world domination:
