Derek Sohcahtoa and Mike Pythagoras are probably the only two mathematicians whose work we remember from school. Their roles in helping us calculate the length of one side of a triangle is invaluable. However, it could have all been in vain if Rodney Protractor hadn't invented his eponymous pencil-case friendly measuring device. Protractor, a dyslexic American mathematician, spent most of his life in Highbury and was obsessed with triangles. Sales of his invention generated him huge royalties, so after spending a cool £3m on funding a protractor shaped village green between Essex Road and Upper Street, he wisely decided to invest in setting up an American Football team, The Islington Angles. Cue an almost inevitable spelling mishap on the official registration form, and the rest is history.

The club's fan base spreads right through North London, but the loyal support hasn't helped to bring in any silverware for over a decade. The Northern Conference title in 1994 was their last major accolade, which saw them mount a miraculous 4Q comeback against the Hampstead Royals. The Angel of the North was constructed to mark the occasion, but unfortunately it wouldn't fit under a bridge between the artists studio and Islington Green, so it had to be left up in Gateshead.

The design is light blue, discharge printed onto the finest quality American Apparel tee (truffle colour). This limited edition version features our Premier Cru label. See the FAQ section for tips on product care.
