In September 2003 a little-known indie tunesmith by the name of Peter Doherty was sent to prison for a minor bout of burglary. Two young Libertines' fans, drunk on injustice, set about hatching a plan to break their young hero out of chokey. With minimal locksmith skills and limited criminal know-how they decided on the next best course of action… the "Free Pete Doherty" t-shirt! With that, Balcony Shirts was born. Since those heady days we have printed over 100,000 T-shirts and progressed from our bedrooms, to a portocabin in a truck garage car park, to a leaky unit on an industrial estate, to our very first shop which we opened in Uxbridge on Haloween, 2010. We are as passionate now as we were then, and we are very good at what we do.
