Larry Mullen Jr. and those damn shirts

2 Comments

So it seems from the web searches and traffic on this blog that it has become somewhat of a clearinghouse of Larry Mullen Jr. T-Shirt Information!

Since last night’s HBO airing of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame concert at which U2 was featured, people are finding their way here looking for the shirt Larry wore: a white v-neck t-shirt with swallows on the front shoulders and a feather/wing/heart design on the back shoulders (or as I know it – the shirt he wore at our Dublin show!):

(although this picture is from Toronto)

They are finding their way here because of the oodles of posts I have written about Larry’s Scorpion t-shirt and my quest to get one.

So here’s the deal: those shirts are custom-made for Larry by U2’s stylist. They are not made by Bono’s wife’s company Edun, although they totally look like something from their collection. I have been in contact with PR at Edun and have notified them of the high demand for the Scorpion shirt. I was told that the company doesn’t own the design, but would bring the request to the decision-makers and let me know if they are going to get made.

I would assume the same deal goes for the swallows and any of the other similar shirts he wore on 360 this year. I think Edun is sitting on a monumental cash cow here, if the demand I’ve seen via this site is any sign. I really hope they take the bait and make us some of these shirts! Do it for charity!

If they become available for mass consumption, I’ll be talking about it here, believe me (screaming and dancing and freaking out is more like it!)

  1. Sorry…it was google that pointed me to your site for the t-shirt…didn’t mean to bog your blog….at the same time, your site’s nice…thanks

  2. Boy that Adam/Larry sandwich looks a little empty in the middle. It’s too bad there aren’t any cute stalker girls that could EASILY fit in there. Do you know any 😉

    Honestly just post a photo like this every once in a while with no words. The hotness of it speaks for itself!
