There’s no doubt that the Red Special is an iconic guitar design. But you might have noticed the lack of ways to express your appreciation for it while at the gym, out on runs or competing in bicycle races. And so Brian May Guitars has expanded its range of merchandise to include a sports bra adorned with the Red Special, as well as BMG’s other designs.

The product description reads: “highlighting Brian May’s consummate artistic talents, this activewear salutes the entire range of Brian May Guitars with a bright, bold design prominently featuring the united colours of BMG – because it doesn’t have to be red to be special!”

The activewear joins a shirt and a ‘hold everything’ waistcoat sporting the same design, also new for 2020. The waistcoat comes with the added feature of being reversible, and is designed to “keep all your life support essentials on your person.” The site goes on to say that “this stylish and functional, open-fronted garment sports a rugged 100% cotton build and renders man-bags and hand-bags redundant with a voluminous quartet of safe and secure, button-down pockets for phones, keys, wallets, cameras, sunglasses, pill-boxes, pens, make-up, lip balm, OWL stereo viewers… plus one extra special ‘Pick Pocket’ dedicated to sixpence coins, naturally!”
