About The Affair

Making literature fashionable since 2007

booksThe Affair began in late 2007 when a strange thing happened amidst the rubble of broken dreams and the boozers of East London. Some pilgrims to this savage land decided to pool their industry experience, raw talent and shamelessly egotistical aspirations.  After much beard-stroking and arguing, the original literature inspired fashion brand was born in the back alleys of Shoreditch. We began The Affair to recognise and target the discerning intellect of men who read. As such every design has its literary inspiration printed on the inside neck, so you're primed for chatting about something other than the weather. We dye, cut and sew our own custom T-shirts in Portugal and guarantee them sweat shop free. We only use 100% lightweight cotton jersey, and every T-shirt is prewashed for a soft vintage feel and guaranteed never to shrink. And if that's not enough we guarantee an unlimited full refund at any time.
