Don't all keel over with excitement at once, but for the first time in a long while, there's a new TAC T-shirt. The design is the helicopter-rescue cover from TAC68, in a red border. The shirt itself is ash-grey, and comes in four different sizes: M, L, XL and the whopping XXL for all you scran-and-samosa eaters out there. The shirts cost £16 each including p&p, or you can save a couple of quid by buying a six-issue TAC subscription along with it, £23 all in.
A few of the old St Kilda shirts are still available, just medium size. These can be had for the knockdown price of a tenner, or £17 with a six-issue TAC sub.
