Hat in the Matchbox

Walking out from the convenience store round the corner the other day, with a triple pack of bacon for my lunch, I was hailed by this big guy in a wide-brimmed fedora.
- Excuse me, can you tell me where I can buy a Pork Pie like yours, he asked with a notable Finnish sing song to his English, indicating my hat. As it happens I never leave home without my pork pie.
- I have been looking for a hat like that for a very long time, he explained. I whipped out my stack of MOO cards, and handing him one I told him that he can order one from the Soul Shack and that we will ship it anywhere in Europe. And damned cheap, too. He said that he’d check our site first thing on coming home to Finland and place his order. We said goodbye, and I hurried home to feed my hungry daughter and didn’t think about it.
Until today, only two days later, when his order for a Jaxon Pork Pie showed up in my mail box, followed by a message from my man Erkki saying that he plays in a sixties revival band, and that he has been looking for a pork pie since he watched Conan O’Brien’s houseband wearing pork pies in episode one!
Check Erkki’s band perform “Matchbox” on YouTube; next time you see them they will be wearing pork pies.

Hat in box

Ran out of cardboard boxes for shipping our porkpie hats in today. Up until now we have used what old boxes we’ve had in the office, but when they’re gone, they’re gone. Since we don’t have our car inside the city, and I did not feel like strapping the boxes to my back while riding my motorcycle in icy Stockholm, I decided to look for boxes in our part of town by foot.
Wandering without finding any vendor of office utensils, I immediately thought of all my futile wanderings in Stockholm in search of band tees from the artistes of my choice. That is the very reason why we decided to open the Soul Shack, to offer people the opportunity to actually wear a Sly Stone or Billie Holiday t-shirt, or any of the almost 40 tees we have for sale at the moment. Not to mention the Jaxon Porkpie hat. I, for one, will not for any reason in the world wear a Justin Timberlake trilby from H&M. I would sooner shoot myself.
You don’t have to do that. We have good stock of the soft Jaxon porkpie, and more models are due this spring.
By the way, I eventually found the boxes in an old shop in a back street. Rasmus in Gränna, your porkpie hat is in the mail!

Affordable 4 all this spring

As the Soul Shack launches the site in English, we feel it’s essential that we all can afford a funky tee. That’s why we cut our prices permanently right this moment on all merchandise-tees. We tighten our belts one notch and promise that no band t-shirt will cost more than 24 Euros this year, including postage and handling for Europe!
On Wednesday 23 February we will also release a number of selected t-shirts on sale. Help us clear the shelves, we need the space for new stuff this spring.
The Soul Shack has some 40 different t-shirts in stock. If you don’t find what you are looking for, just drop us a message and we will help you search through our contacts. Spring is nearing, turning our under vests into t-shirts again. Make sure your tee is a Soul Statement!
