We have always enjoyed our trips to France. My fondest memories were of the long trips south in my father’s Bedford van, crossing to Calais in the amazing hi-tech hovercraft, whilst not forgetting to put the yellow headlight stickers on and ensuring our GB sticker was proudly positioned! We seemed to always bring back clothes. Although not big into fashion so to speak, we just enjoyed collecting clothes we could not seem to locate in the UK. So the shirts stuck in our memories whilst returning to France with the next generation many years later. We genuinely liked them so much, we year on year just slowly built up a collection. Initially we started selling them through national newspaper adverts and in selective magazines.
