Ship Shape And Bristol Fashion T-Shirt: Paying homage to the most British of propaganda posters and the most British of expressions: The term originated in the early 19th Century due to the high tidal range of the port of Bristol before the construction of the Floating Harbour. Ships moored at Bristol would therefore be aground at low tide and, because of their keels, would fall to one side. If everything was not tied down and stowed away neat and tidy ("ship shape and Bristol fashion") the cargo and contents of the ship could be ruined.
