A cult crime writer t-shirt available in black cotton.
James Ellroy. The dark and daring scribe of sin-soaked sagas. Born in Los Angeles, 1948. Crime writer. Demon Dog. Raised in a realm rife with wreckage, his fractured family life foreshadowed the twisted tales he'd later pen.
His journey to notoriety was a tumultuous one. Tangled in tawdry troubles, he found himself on the wrong side of the law and served time in the penitentiary. These experiences birthed a profound understanding of crime's tangled web, giving life to his gritty narratives.
With typewriter keys clicking like a hailstorm on a tin roof, Ellroy crafted his signature style—noir as night, rife with relentless rhythms, and dripping with dark decadence. "The Black Dahlia" (1987) thrust him into the literary limelight, a chilling chronicle of a real-life murder mystery that sent shivers down spines.
His lauded L.A. Quartet, including "The Big Nowhere," "L.A. Confidential," and "White Jazz," exposed the putrid underbelly of Los Angeles, peeling back layers of corruption and depravity, all with a prose as sharp as a stiletto.
Ellroy's life, much like his literature, is a labyrinth of complexities and contradictions. A man both haunted and haunting, his relentless pursuit of the truth beneath the shadows led him to a place where darkness and redemption blur into one.
As a chronicler of crime's chaotic cadence, James Ellroy, the purveyor of pulp and prophet of the perverse, stands as an enigmatic figure in the annals of American literature—a man whose life and art are inseparable, a testament to the enduring allure of the human capacity for both wickedness and redemption.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
