Exposure recently started making sweatshirts with quotes on them, from various sources all over the World! They got in touch with Scroobius Pip and checked that it would be okay to use one of his quotes, he agreed and they have been a massive hit!
Exposure sent him a freebie, but he had to go one better and came down to the shop where he very kindly modelled his jumper for us.
Exposure are currently in discussions with Scroobius management about producing more quote jumpers and making them official merchandise for the band!
Exposure have sold out of the jumper in store, but you can still grab one online at http://exposure.bigcartel.com

He might be a millionaire footballer, captain of England and launched his own shoe range in posh shop Selfridges, but Rio Ferdinand is still a fan of buying his vintage clothes from Afflecks.
Rio can be regularly spotted shopping within our walls. The Manchester United defender told the Manchester Evening News “I’ve got a lot of second hand clothes, like jackets and shirts from Afflecks. I like mixing up vintage with my other stuff”
Rio went on to say ” Whenever I go to Afflecks, I get asked what the flipping heck I am doing in there! but its not about what you earn, it’s about style.”
You’ll get no argument from us there, Rio.
