Use the special PH code to claim your discount off anything within our range


Mans Maths makes sense at 10% off
Mans Maths makes sense at 10% off
We’ve launched a huge amount of new products in the PistonHeads shop over the last month or so, and no doubt there is much you’d like to buy. With that in mind we have decided to take a break from new launches this week and instead we’d like to offer you 10 per cent off anything in store.

You can choose a T-shirt, a hooded top, a sticker, mug or mousemat - all have 10 per cent off so make the most of it while you can

All you need to do is use the code PH0901 when you order and the discount will be applied, the code will be active from today through to Monday September 10 so you have plenty of time to choose what you want to buy.

To view the entire range, and to buy, click here.

Happy shopping!

wow! the price of the [shotdeadinthehead] t-shirts has shot up loads!!
have a few of them.. not PH ones, but they are just generic tshirt run through a quick press..
all good quality (years old, still good condition/soft though i wouldnt want to snag one..) but £18 is expensive i feel.. not that that's PHs fault.
sure i only paid about a tenner per item (non-sale).. which is all i'd say they're worth.

There are some nice designed T-Shirts in the PH shop, but asking £20 per T-Shirts is a bit mush, 4 T-Shirts is knocking on the door for £80, and allot of these shirt are single colour prints which is about as cheap as it gets to produce.



Something like this should be coming in at most £10 to £13

I agree the quality of them isn't worth £17.99, especially as the t-shirts are just someone elses with the label taken out. I was disappointed with my order and got the impression they thought this was a one-off error, but replacements were also the same; faded writing, colour bleed etc. Having said that, they went above and beyond the call of duty to resolve (too far to be honest, not great business practise what they actually offered and I tried to decline). Surprised at the quality considering the company they sub-contract the work out to. However, it is impossible to resist some of them for their great PH graphics and hopefully some money gets contributed to PH.

Let's separate this out into the two issues here:

1. Pricing.

Shirts are £17.99 (and not £20!) with postage free of charge. Buy 3 or more and they get even cheaper. If you go to most online shirt shops (such as 8ball) shirts are £16 with £3 postage on top. Yes, there are cheaper places to buy shirts, but when you look at the total cost, we're good value. The £10 shirt is a myth, I'm afraid.

2. Quality

If your replacement shirt still isn't good enough, then we're not happy, and we're going to get you another replacement. I've got lots of these shirts, and the quality is great. They aren't a tailored shirt like a Superdry type item, but then they aren't £25 either. Ours also wash really well - I wear one every day for my cycle into work, so they are getting lots of washing at present.

They aren't "someone else's shirts with the label taken out." We're printing on T shirt blanks, but a lot of effort has gone into selecting the best shirt possible - shape, cotton weight, suitability for printing etc. The guys who run the T shirt shop for us are actually desperately nerdy about things like T shirt quality, printability of designs, postage, returns etc. That's good - we want them to obsess over this stuff!

£18 is OK for a T nowadays. IMHO if you don't like the price, don't buy em.

Hell, I don't do my food shopping in Waitrose but I don't bh about the prices.

No worries, I assumed they were someone else's otherwise what would be the point of removing the white labels if it wasn't for any other reason then removing another brand. My first t-shirt wasn't good quality, the 'nerds' must have been off that day wink
