Get your Pies/Anorak official World Cup t shirt

By George I think we’ve won it – The George (Orwell) for England Pies World Cup shirts are here.

Perfect for anyone who loves football (and a bit of literature too) is the George for England World Cup shirt. Produced by the team who work on our sibling site  whoateallthepies this ace cotton T-shirt has England’s favourite George (Orwell) on the front and the numbers 84 (of course) on the back. It also has the Pies URL too, in case you have forgotten where we are.

We chose Orwell because we think he is the coolest George England has ever produced. The next in the series will be either George Dawes or Boy George. Look out for that later.

Available in Small (Women’s), Medium, Large. Please specify when ordering. They cost £12.99 inc post and packaging.
