13 t-shirts every boy’s mum bought them in the '90s

Picture the scene. You're eight years old and excited for the upcoming school disco (you've even learnt all the moves to Steps' 5-6-7-8). You're planning to wear your cool new bucket hat, but what will you put on the rest of your body? Then your mum comes home.

She's carrying a bag from Marks and Spencer. Inside is a deliberately distressed brown t-shirt inexplicably featuring an American road sign and the words "Established 1978". The seam of the collar and cuffs are a contrasting colour. It is the sort of thing that only twenty 50-year-old executives with coffee breath in a boardroom meeting would brainstorm in response to word "cool". Your life is ruined forever.

Relive the painful memories in this, the definitive guide to t-shirts every boy's mum bought them in the 90s.
