Pretty Grim - thoughtfully designed  t-shirts and gifts for those of us whose glass is often half empty.

I am a proud Aberdonian and love the city - warts and all. But us Aberdonians have something of a reputation for being on the miserable side of dour. Maybe it has something to do with the grey granite or biting North East winds, that makes Aberdonians see things differently from other folk. Lets face it life can sometimes be pretty grim.

Set facing into the North Sea, and often overlooked by visitors to Scotland, Aberdeen is home to the famous Aberdeen Football Club, has a strong academic tradition, is steeped in history and culture, and as the oil capital of Europe, Aberdeen is regularly cited as one of the best and most prosperous places to live and work the UK. 

With Pretty Grim I wanted to find a way of sharing the pride I have in my native city, to salute the rowie, and wallow in the joy and despair of supporting Aberdeen FC. If you have visited Aberdeen or have the North east in your blood, I think you will ken fit ah mean.

Mr Grim

I hope to add more designs and colours over time, and would like to hear what you think of these.  You can leave comments on our Facebook page - or better still send a picture of you wearing your t-shirt, or using a gift item.
