AnyForty – ‘Art is Our Weapon’

AnyForty. One word, two caps. An independent streetwear and artist collaboration brand, based in the UK but repped worldwide. Damo took time to chat with King Crayon, Chief Coin Counter and driving force of AnyForty, Al Wardle.


Damo: Who is AnyForty?
Al: AnyForty is a homegrown brand, that specifically works with artists from all over the world, from unknown to globally established, on a range of artist collaboration products ranging from tees, to pin badges and self published coffee table books to sticker packs. I run everything in the business myself apart from dispatch and distribution which my pops handles for me from our Gateshead office!

AnyForty Versus Volumes

Fresh from celebrating 5 years of business with a hugely successful 3 month Boxpark pop up venture, Hackney based street-wear brand AnyForty aren’t wasting any time and have come crashing through the gates with a brand new collection entitled AnyForty Versus Volumes. Going against industry norm, the AnyForty lads have decided to bin off the traditional seasonal drops, and in a brave move have created yearly AnyForty Volumes, split up into quarterly Chapter releases.

The first Chapter is released on Wednesday August 28th, and to celebrate the new format, AnyForty have teamed up with cult Brick lane based store and there newest stockists Roktic, to throw a party that showcases each of the 7 artists involved in the new collection and there personal work. Artists involved are Sprinkes (Australia), Greg Mike (USA), Chris B Murray (USA), SPZero76 (UK), Nikki Farquaharson (UK), UltraFry (UK) and Iain Macarhur (UK).

Also on the evening, there will be live art from Bristol based street artist Keith Hopewell aka SPZero76, live beatbox performances by AnyForty family Hobbit & surprise guest friends and free beer supplied by the lovely folks at Desperados.

Part exhibition, part gig, part party, part of you knows you’d be a fool if you miss out. So get along to Roktic, 214 Brick Lane, E1 6SA on Thursday 15th August from 6pm for a hell of a night!


AnyForty x Tizieu

Following their trip to Be Street Weekend, Paris in December 2012, AnyForty have just released a limited run of their collaborative tee with French artist Tizieu.

This incredible hand-drawn tee sold out during the Be Street Weekend and they’ve now decided to print a bunch for UK heads to get their hands on too. This is AnyForty’s first drop of 2013 and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the ‘Blood, Sweat and 5 Years’ collection coming out 15th March.

You can grab it for £25 from AnyForty, Chemical Records or Urban Industry.

AnyForty T-Shirt Comp

Many of you may have noticed how much we like the new ‘Australian Invasion’ range of tees from AnyForty and T-world; it might be because we have been indoctrinated to love all Aussie’s by the people from down-under that work with and around VNA, or it might be because the tees are seriously awesome.

Either way we’ve got a few to give away to you courtesy of the generous guys at AnyForty, with designs from Meggs, Numskull and Ken Taylor.
To enter just name any other Australian artist who has designed a tee for the ‘Australian Invasion’ series. Send your answers to ro@verynearlyalmost.com with the subject ‘ANYFORTY COMP’ before the 26th June to be in with a chance.


We recently mentioned the fantastic release of the new AnyForty & T-world Australian Invasion t-shirt series, and now you have an opportunity to walk into a physical space and buy them!

Sampled is a ‘slicker than your average’ sample sale, record sale and general good time destination next Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th in Bar Music Hall, Shoreditch.

AnyForty & T-world – The Australian Invasion

Our friends over at clothing brand AnyForty have had a busy couple of months working on a new series of t-shirts in collaboration with Eddie Zammit’s T-world. With designs from Australian based artists like Beastman, Ken Taylor and Meggs, we have been eagerly awaiting this release for a while. But the wait is over.. nearly!

AnyForty jetted off to New York to launch the series last night at Gallery Bar, and whilst we are pretty jealous we weren’t there, they have revealed the look book today and they really have chosen the tastiest Aussie artists to design this collection.
They go on sale here on Monday 14th, so salivate away over the weekend and decide which of these affordable beauties you are going to get your hands on. Each t-shirt comes with an artist specific 24 page mini T-world issue as well!
