Ace T-Shirt – Motorhead not in sight…

ace of spades tee

Perfect for habitual gamblers and fighter pilots!

This Ace T-Shirt from Monster Threads is beautiful, but for me it has a more poignant meaning. And that’s not just because I’m a fan of Motorhead in need of an Ace of Spades Tee.

When I was a little kid, I didn’t like my middle name which was, and still is, Ronald. So when the kids at school asked me what my middle name was, being a fan of 80s cartoon Centurions, and my favourite character being the blue guy, I said my name was Ace. This was met with laughter and derision – it was a pretty obvious lie – and about year of jibes about it. Years later, in college, someone, to my horror, brought up the story of the name that never was. It got a few laughs but then people actually started using it! I had nickname and it was the name I always wanted. Huzzah! I’m proud of my middle name now – I was named after both of my Grandfathers – John and Ronald – both great men. And then I found out my mum was a massive fan of 80s soap-opera Dallas, which is why I have the initials I do. True story.

Aside from all of that, this is a very beautiful t-shirt, exquisitely designed and executed. Monster Threads have come up with yet another fantastic design and I urge you to check out the larger image available at It comes in small, medium and large (I’m usually XL but I just squeeze into the L) and it comes only in blue for £24. Take a gamble on it.
