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!
Online Tuesday 27th January 7pm GMT

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

Happy New Year, Happy New Weirs. As said at the tail end of 2014, we'll be back with hat season in full throttle. The first hats of this brand new year go online on Wednesday at 7pm (GMT). As always, very limited production of 50 hats per colourway, them's the rules as a result they don't hang around and far more people miss out than get them, that's been established by now, so as we say fastest fingers first. Exclusively online at shop.casualco.com
So what's the inspiration for these two colourways then? First up we've got the Red, Brown and Blue - as you know colour ideas for these come from all sources, this one though, pretty much a combination of trying to do something we've not yet done. If the Vronsky is our Sierra Designs Weir, this is our vintage Powderhorn or Norrona one, old skool rambling vibes! After all, the whole point of these hats is a nod to the great outdoors.
AND so to this one!
Yep that's right, it's a 'Stoney' colour combination for this one!
Inspired by the Black, Yellow and Green of the original button off patch. This will look nice with your dead expensive shiny jacket. Lots of interest in this already, we're bracing ourselves for another massive Twitter headache, when they're gone at 19:01:01. Brace yourselves. TC
