2007 Unkle Tee by Surrender.jpg
Year2007-2008, 2020

The following were made available to purchase on the Unkle War Stories Tour in 2007 and exclusively at the DPMHI store in London, with a limited run of silver posters available in an edition of 100 on the tour too.[1]

In 2008 UNKLE collaborated with James Lavelle's clothing brand Surrender to create the UNKLE x Surrender UK Tour Tee. This limited edition t-shirt was made available on the UK tour starting March 1st 2008 in London. The design was available in both a black and a white edition, with each colour available in only 60 editions each.[2]

The glitter tee was produced in Japan by Fragment on Base Control bodies, and was sold at the DPMI store with a small amount available online. The tee was limited to 400 and originally retailed for £60.[3]

In 2020 the War Stories Instrumentals were released on vinyl and new merchandise was also created. These six items included hoodies and t-shirts featuring the Surrender and UNKLE logos, photography by Will Bankhead, and the Hold My Hand Tee features the handwritten lyrics to Hold My Hand by James Lavelle on the back. Each of these screenprinted items were limited to an edition of 50, shipped with a signed and numbered tag and a pack of two stickers. The t-shirts were heavyweight cotton and cost £35 while the hoodies cost £75.

In February 2021 the glitter tee from 2007 was made available as part of UNKLE's "Arkhive Sale" and sold for £20. It was listed as 100% Cotton and made in Japan, with the note "We recommend that you hand-wash or machine wash on a cool delicate cycle and leave to try naturally."[4]

In October 2021 some left over stock was made available in UNKLE's Arkhive Sale 3. The Hoodies were £40 and T-shirts £20. In December 2021 stock was found in the USA and was made available for sale at discount in January 2022.

Original Announcement

Via Unkle77[5]

Firstly we have an amazing Unkle Live glitter UK tour tee produced in Japan by Fragment on Base Control bodies. There are a total of 400 pieces made, some will be sold at the DPMI store and a small amount online. They are really expensive to make and are retailing for 60 pounds.

Also we have a really nice Unkle tee featuring the new round logo in black on black and white on white, these are on Surrender custom bodies with side tagging, embroidery, neck tape etc. Only 100 of each colour has been made and they will only be available on this tour. These are 35 pounds rather than the usual 45 for Surrender at retail locations.

For this tour we have done a really beautiful tour poster with Ben Drury and 3D that is a reworking of the War Stories cover. It has to be seen to be appreciated so please hold tight for the pics. It is hand screened on a silver base in an edition of 100. It was really expensive to produce and is more of a work of art than a poster. They are 75pounds.

Also we have regular merch tee’s for 15 pounds. Enamel badges for £5 each or £25 for six, and also sticker packs for £12.00. Also check out new surrender M65. 60 pieces, made in London which makes them pricey but nice. MWA camo screened in different spots of each lining making them all different.
