The It’s Been Emotional t-shirt gives a nod to the ex-Wimbledon football hard-man, Vinnie Jones, with his first role on the big screen as Big Chris in Guy Ritchie’s ‘Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels’ from 1998. The t-shirt features Vinnie Jones in the iconic shoot out scene towards the end of the film where Big Chris collects the two shotguns for his boss ‘Hatchet Harry’. Below the graphics are the famous last words of the film from Vinnie “It’s been emotional” as he hands over the auction catalogue which shows the real value of the guns the film is based around.
