Hillbrow Record Centre
In celebration of World Record Store Day on 13 April, we're proud to release this special T-shirt honouring a long-lost but not forgotten vinyl store that was once a mecca in downtown Johannesburg in the late 70s and 80s.
WE ARE NOW SOLD OUT TO THE PUBLIC.

After discovering some old Hillbrow Record Store packets holding together a dusty collection of vinyls posted online, an adventure then ensued to learn more and track down the owners of the long-since closed iconic record centre. It was important to us that we got their blessing to make this shirt. Needless to say the blessing was given, and this is the design as it appeared on the packet.
In a world where commercial fashion stores are reproducing the branding of burger joints and record stores of far off cities like LA and New York, lets look a little closer to home and celebrate the places that we know to be real, and deserving of our remembrance.
T-Shirt colour: off-white.
