You can’t beat a classic band tee, jeans and biker boots for a laidback classic look and this Led Zeppelin teeshirt from Truffle Shuffle certainly ticks all the right boxes. If you were lucky enough to see Led Zeppelin performing at the Wembley Empire Pool during their 1971 tour, you would have been treated to a five-hour show including bizarre vaudeville circus acts such as plate spinners, trapeze artists and performing pigs dressed as policemen. Known as the Electric Magic shows, demand was pretty crazy. This Led Zeppelin tee features the show’s poster, sold at the time for 30p and now a much-coveted collectable. Why not treat yourself to this iconic, psychedelic design, for a little slice of the action.
