Here's another one of them little update posts to let you know what's on it's way at CC.
First off, hands off cocks, on socks... Yes we used that last time we sold socks, but we just used it again and anyway these socks are pretty special. Custom made by renowned hosiers Corgi!
They're online on Friday 27th March, there's quite a few of them so there shouldn't be any need to panic. Though please note, they come in S-XL so check your sizing out on the product page. They also come with a special '4 button badge set' because we're nice like that.
There's loads new tees incoming both online from us as well as from any participating stockists, some of our restocks from next week, plus lot's of new designs in production now and more newness being worked on too!
Sweats - some of you will have been aware there were supposed to be "CASUALCo." sweatshirts due to be released. Unfortunately we encountered some problems with the printing method on one or two and further testing proved there to be a fault with more of them so they were recalled and sadly had to be done away with!
The perils of being a tiny business means we can't magic them back and sometimes these things happen, very frustrating but we won't sell anything that won't cut it!
HOWEVER we do have a new alternative sweatshirt in production that will appeal to a lot of people.
Paying homage to Clarks and Ken Crutchlow's epic Desert jaunt we have a take on that very sweatshirt he wore coming soon (and a graphic tee too!)
We've got some lovely shirts coming next month too, the next lot in our ongoing collaboration with those fine folk at Tuktuk. Quite literally on the boat now.
What's that? Another Weir. BUT...But it's nearly summer. Yeah but these were decided on in the height of winter and during the busiest manufacturing period and well they're only just here now. Plus we can't speak for everyone but it's still as cold as a witches titty here so we may well get them out rather than sit on them for 6 months. Also this is a special one after being approached by both Peter O'Toole and Quote about the possibility of doing a "QuoToole" trainer colour Weir, we thought why not, so we went and did one! Part of the deal was to do a special photo-shoot with the hat, trainers and underwear n' stuff. So keep an eye out and we'll see.
Oh and of course we're always working on new things, we're working on a new shirt and a special jacket with Newfangle Clothing more details as we get them, but they will be gooood. Plus working on some interesting new tee/polo and outerwear ideas.
And we've got a new cap and coach jacket currently in production with the best people out there - Ebbets Field Flannels. Plus loads of pins, yes it's been a while hasn't it!? and Yes them Dead Hard one's will be online soon... they're like a year late or something but at some point we decided to order some more in the reverse colour so that's why we've been waiting.
Vronsky's with Veras are selling fast every day, if your size is still available and you're umming and arring grab a pair before they go, lots of ones and twos in most sizes!
Next Tuesday, a bit of Scorsese flavour with a restock of Mean Streets on Navy and Goodfellas tees, online at 7pm GMT. And we've just received our stack of Mundial magazines so we'll get them online for next week too. TC

"Is that from The Shining?, someone's done hats similar"
"You know that pattern is from The Shining, don't you right?!"
"Hey mate that scarf looks like it's the pattern from The Overlook hotel, y'know from Stanley Kubrick's Shinin' film."
Just three comments we got yesterday whilst wearing and photographing our new scarves, which is fair enough, but they didn't know WE know until we explained it!
But also those who get them will know, as that's what it's all about. So that ugly and 'dated' pattern from a scary 35 year old film was to be reborn as a unbelievably hugely sought after titfer with people going as mad raving crazy as Jack Torrance himself for it all over the globe, to this day we've ensured we've kept it very limited. We've also thought about a scarf for numerous winters and decided doing a limited run would be a nice alternative way of wearing the legendary pattern.
These go online Thursday evening at 7pm (GMT). Limited numbers, as always!

Yeah that's right. In the tradition of our world beating, booby sucking successful (and since imitated) Overlook hat, we always look at the strange and surreal for new hat inspiration and so onto this one, it was only a matter of time before one of our favourite ever films was included in our hat designs and despite there being a wealth of imagery in the film it was your humble narrators bedspread that best caught the eye, oh my brothers! ...so there we are, 'viddy well' and all that!
As always limited numbers, one per person, fastest fingers first. If you're buying one to profit from we'll tolchock you in your yarbles you Eunuch jelly thou!
Online Thursday 7pm GMT

Our next Weir release is the 'Black Ark' Weir hat.
The 'Black Ark' Weir has a Dub, Reggae colour combination inspired by the old cult Black Ark recording studios owned by Lee 'Scratch' Perry. We were able to squeeze an extra colour to gain this effect, the result is rather cool. It is as always limited numbers but as this is a one off that required extra changes there's 80 of these hats going online, still as per we don't expect them to last long. 'Fastest fingers first' and another little tip... yes they tend to disappear at 19:00:09 but if you keep at it there's a bunch of people who add to cart and don't check out in time and thus the hat goes back into stock, so there's always another chance!
ONLINE THIS FRIDAY 19:00 (GMT)
BERLIN GROUNDET WEIR.
W(e)ir sind das Volk! - which means W(e)ir are the people! - geddit?
This special CC x BG hat is available exclusively from berlingroundet.de tomorrow evening 19:30 German time. That's 18:30 our time! Limited to 50 hats as usual.
Oh yes, as we approach the end of hat season we still have not one, not two but three special editions to release yet! The perils of being a two man team rushed off our trotters and having to deal with some unwelcome distractions behind the scenes means sometimes we can't get stuff up online and out fast enough, so patience is required. We're sorting them and we'll have confirmed release dates via the shop and social media ASAP!
Alex's Quilt, Black Lodge and Underground, very soon...
Our next update post will be about a whole new batch of brand new tee designs coming once hat season is over. To both us and any partcipating stockists, check back for details soon. TC

These ones are a bit different, eh? Like the subtle sensible older brother maybe.
In contrast to the usual bright, bold and zany colours we decided to do a couple of really, sensible, stealth subtle colour combinations this year. The usual 'zigzags' are so tonal they are almost invisible, but we think it works well. These'll look nice with your expensive coats.
Well we've got two version, stealth blue and beige and as always limited numbers produced!

Tomorrow is the next Weir on offer. This one is (like the forthcoming boots with Veras) inspired by Robert DeNiro's Michael Vronsky and deerstalking steez. Thankfully no deers were harmed in the making of these hats, with Mountaineering vibes and the great outdoors, this is one of our personal fave colours of this year. As always there's only 50 and they'll go dead quick, that's the story of the Weirs.
The Black Ark one will follow this, release date for that one will be confirmed in the next few days.
AND there's one release exclsuively sold by the Sock Council on Friday so check it out. TC

Sounds like an Irish folk band that title doesn't it? Well it's not, I mean it could be who knows? What it is, is the 2nd wave of our McMurphy releases, these being the 2 Tone Red and Blue and the 3-colour Red, Blue and Yellow, which go well with our Walsh trotters and of course the Trango jacket that inspired both.
These are all made in England and limited in numbers as always. Online Tuesday 7pm TC
