SAN PORTABLO 1901 MIAMI BEACH T-SHIRT

Last November 2016 San Portablo bought out a limited run of Miami Beach single print sweatshirts.  Since that time we've had constant calls from our customers asking for us to bring out the Miami Beach design on a t-shirt since that time, and we're very happy to finally have the t-shirt now in stock in a range of sizes and colours, from small to Five XL.

PLAZA "BANG" T-SHIRT

    San Portablo 1901 recently produced a new Plaza t-shirt for the cast and crew of a new tv show (called BANG) which finished filming here in San Portablo in early July. The show will air on S4C in September and will be having its premier down at the cinema on Aberafan beach. We did a limited edition of their Plaza t-shirt, (featuring the BANG name in our own San Portablo font, and a gun from the show, positioned on the bill board where our own Shakespeare Society takes pride of place) and still have 7 or 8 sizes left in different colours. These limited edition Plaza t-shirts are not available online but are on sale in the shop....
