The weather is getting worse, and we are literally the biggest bunch of wet wipes when it comes to being cold. However, it is a brilliant excuse to buy a new jacket to fend off the horizontal rain and blistering wind. What's more is we have the Lacoste L!VE quilted faux fur hooded parka in black.
If you're not convinced or simply feel more warmth from a cosy knitted jumper then stand aside and let me shock you. This beauty wasn't named the 'Fishermans knit' for no reason. Heavy wool rich knit with thick ribbed fisherman neckline, saddle shoulders and a fine white beaded ribbed accents throughout. 🎣⛴⚓️
The standout performer online, not that we've handed out the player of the year mid season but if we were to pick a player of the month, the Chuck Taylor 1970's would surely win. The premier collection from Converse, featuring premium finishings all over. Details include heavy weight canvas uppers, with sturdy stitching, slightly higher and thicker rubber sole, and enhanced cushioning on foot bed. We've taken the liberty to style them up in every way known to man, paired with washed out black denim, stone wash 501's and then the dapper sid pant, after all, what's that famous converse saying "shoes are boring, wear converse".
With a nod to the lads on the terraces or those who just enjoy those weekend down days from a busy week, we salute the casual functionality of the jackets and sweats of this seasons Lyle & Scott range. Layer the tricot 1/4 zip with the claret zip through wind breaker to fend off this seasons diagonal downpours. The classic loopback has been updated with a half zip pullover, and the lightweight puffer jacket is a bona fide life saver when the heavens open. Don't get me wrong, this isn't the rounded theme of Lyle and Scott, the winter range is littered with top notch knitwear and shirting, because they do that really well 👌🏻
This winter the Italian brand celebrates seasonal staples with a good measure of classic collegiate sweats and t-shirts. The denim sherpa is pile lined and represents Franklin and Marshall's more fashion forward focus which you very rarely see from most stockists of the brand.
As a stockist we have always tried to stay clear of the classic but not classy tracksuit in favour of the brands heritage pieces with an eye for quality and style. Heavy flannel shirt in a seasonal forest green and yellow check, ideal for wearing over basic tees.
