Founded in East London in 1966 by brothers Keith and Alan Freedman and still a family owned company to this day, Brutus are known most for their Trimfit shirts. Over the years the Brutus has developed a cult following amongst mods, skinheads and suedeheads the world over. Their recent collaboration with Doc Martens sold out in under 24 hours – Madness!
Brutus are currently running a illustration project, commissioning young, creative talents to customise, draw or print directly onto the Trimfit shirt. If you’re an artist or illustrator and you quite fancy having your prints on people instead of paper click here for more information on getting involved with The Brutus illustrators project. Here is ‘professional doodler’ Hattie Stewart doing her stuff on the shirt…
If you want to buy a Brutus shirt designed by Hattie, see the other illustrator’s impressions or view their AW12 collection this can be done here on their website.
