British attitude

Up Your's

A unique premium quality t-shirt packed with a British feeling and attitude. The gesture is commonly seen in football stadiums and among British music icons. On our t-shirt, the hand gesture is printed with the DTG method resulting in a high quality and long-lasting print.

Inspired by icons

As mentioned, this gesture is very common in Great Britain and among music artist. Some of the persons that gave us inspiration to create this shirt are Liam Gallagher, Jarvis Cocker, and also (very much) Winston Churchill. No persons in the world can do the ‘Up Your’s’ sign better than them.

Inspired by places

British pubs and football stadiums are perfect places to wear this t-shirt. Without mention any specific spots, we possess a special love for the old and rough bars and stadiums.

Up Your's

Meaning

The ‘Up Your’s’ gesture is made with the index and middle finger raised and parted, and the palm facing towards yourself. It has similar connotations to the ‘middle finger’ gesture, but with an added element of defiance. The hand may be moved up and down for added effect.

Sometimes a gesture can convey a message more satisfactorily than words. Why tell someone to fuck off when you can just give them the finger? We like to think that gestures can transcend language, or that they are a more universal form of communication, but we only have to look at the difference in the offensive gesture repertoire of North American and UK English speakers to know this is not true. In fact, Americans are deprived of a particularly satisfying offensive gesture, and it causes much mirth for Brits, Australians and New Zealanders.

If you’re unfamiliar with this gesture it may remind you of the Peace Sign. They form a gestural minimal pair, in that they only differ with regard to one feature. The hand-shape and vertical orientation are the same, but the orientation of the palm is different. In the same way that the innocuous word fug differs from the nocuous fuck by only one pronunciation feature; just a small change turns a gesture from benign to offensive.
