Mo' Wax Merchandise 1994-1997
The original Mo' Wax Merchandise range was created and sold by Swifty, and included three t-shirts and a record bag. Also available were Swifty and Straight No Chaser t-shirts. These were all advertised for sale in Straight No Chaser Magazine. The t-shirts sold for 16 pounds, and were available through mail order.
In 1996 a new MoWax Merchandise Catalogue was released, featuring four new designs by Will Bankhead and Ben Drury, a new record bag design and a slipmat (not pictured). Each includes a MWM (MoWax Merchandise) catalogue number, eg. MWM001T for the first t-shirt design.
The box design also featured on the Faces Z compilation which was released in 1996, and its design is credited to Ben Drury.
Another design was also available and has the catalogue number of MWMT001, this design is undated and features a tag with the following text: "Screen Stars by Fruit of the Loom, Printed in USA." A white version and dark blue version appear to have been released, with an eBay listing for the dark version claiming the user received it as a promo from Mo' Wax in the 1990's and that it was never on sale to the public.
Two versions of the white t-shirt have appeared online with the same designs but slightly different tags. Both tags mention Screen Stars as the creator. For clearer versions of the tags as featured on other t-shirts, see Minor Thread on Flickr.
Fruit of the Loom was a USA based T-shirt company which operated during the 1980's and 1990's.
Mo' Wax T-shirts 1998+
In 1998 Mo' Wax signed a new partnership with XL Records/Beggars Group, and new merchandise was produced. T-shirts here don't have a specific date, and while they are presumed to have been produced between 1998-2003 this hasn't been confirmed. Some of these t-shirts were released in bags with a MWT logo. Some of the t-shirts were restocked in 2004 via the Mo' Wax Mailorder website, including "MWT 001 - Mo'Wax Clockwork Orange", "MWT 002 - Mo'Wax Multi-Color", "MWT 003 - Mo'Wax Japanese", and "MWT 004 - Mo'Wax Block", with each available for £13 online and each order also came with a Mo' Wax bag. Unfortunately some of the images are no longer available, and it's unclear if the "wire logo" t-shirt is MWT 002, or another design, while there don't appear to be any images of MWT 003.
