WEIRS : STEALTH AND CONNOIGONIA



This week see's two more colourways heading into the Weir collection.
Firstly on Tuesday things get dark with the 'Stealth' Weir online at 7pm. One of the latest in the stealth, subtle range of colours, because they can't always be bright. This one is the darkest yet with three shades of black from the pantone chart, that's right. Black, lighter black and an even lighter black (not grey). As you will be aware by now the Weirs don't hang about and disappear as soon as they go online, this one will probably break the internet going off the interest, but as always limited numbers produced. 



Secondly on Friday see's the release of the 'Connoigonia' Weir.
Yeah the colours on this one are inspired by everyone's favourite environmentalist outdoor brand with a conscience! When things just make sense. This one is made out of old carrier bags, Spira wrappers and plastic Dandelion and Burdock bottles. It isn't really. A nod and a wink. Online Friday at 7pm. TC

THE 'SNOW BEACH' WEIR....





Now then, this edition was inspired by the famous 'Snow Beach' pullover jacket from Polo RL from the mid 1990's, which went on to be a seminal hip hop favourite after being sported by Raekwon appearing in this 1994 video
More than anything for us, it's a nice new colour combo. It's online tomorrow evening at 7pm GMT, fastest fingers first and all that. 


Please also note: These will be posted first thing Tuesday, however orders made from Tuesday afternoon onwards will be subject to a delay in posting, due to prior engagements, apologies but please allow extra time. Thanks. TC

WEEKEND CONNOISSEUR - THE 'SOHO WEIR'






The 'Soho Weir' is the third collabo with Weekend Offender following the D'Arblay rain coat and the Hoppy Mondays ale. 
Sticking with the fusion of both brands as limited edition releases under the 'Weekend Connoisseur' banne, this Weir features (for the first time) dual branding. It's also London themed. In particular, that famous old West End stopping point, Soho - where the WO shop is based on D'Arblay Street, with the colour combination based on the famous London road signs. This one is online from BOTH webshops at 7pm GMT this Friday. #fastestfingersfirst

THE OVERLOOK SCARF





























Last year we decided we'd make a scarf of the legendary Overlook pattern as an alternative or complimentary way to wear that cool/ugly pattern. This winter we decided to do another limited run, possibly for the last time, we'll see. Either way they go online tomorrow at 7pm GMT

Yup, a Weir inspired by everyone's favourite bounty hunter from a galaxy far, far away. As always limited numbers, faster fingers first and all that. Online tomorrow at 7pm GMT TC

VILLAINS!






The Villain hat, a premium manufactured flat cap in Donegal Tweed. Lovely colours on this made from the delightful Donegal Tweed, with a nice thick Red tinted herringbone with specs of colours darted throughout and a Navy version too. A two panel construction, fixed peak, contrast orange woven label to side seam.
This, the fifth 'Villain' release and in one of several new styles. This takes name and inspiration from famed Salford born climber Don Whillans, a proper bloke, handy on the rocks, handy with his fists, a lover of a pint, he climbed with the greats, he was one of the greats himself and mostly always wore his flat cap, even ten million miles up one of the world's scariest mountains. Online tomorrow at 7pm GMT TC

THE ROOM 237 HAT...









The Room 237 hat! Without wanting to blow our own trumpets too much the Overlook release a few years ago exploded onto the scene and literally became a worldwide phenonenon, gaining praise in such literature as Empire magazine and being sold all over the globe with people crying if they missed out!
A vision to create something never done before (and sadly since copied by quite a few) was what we like to do here at CCHQ and with that it was always inevitable at some point the even uglier obscene carpet from the forbidden Room 237 was going to make a lovely titfer so we did it and it's online tomorrow at 7pm GMT strictly one per person as usual!

VRONSKY HATS, NOODLES, ROOM 237 & VILLAINS...



Now then, hat season is in full flow. New year lot's of new hats due...






Tomorrow see's the release of our 'Vronsky' themed block striped hats and it's more lairier crazy multi coloured friend. Pure wool greatness made right here in Blighty.
They're online at 7pm GMT  



The return of our 'Noodles' hat the day after too on Friday at 7pm GMT, a personal favourite of ours, multi coloured tweedy greatness, one of the greatest titfers a man could ever with to put on his bonce if we do say so ourselves. These won't hang about!



Next Tuesday also at 7pm GMT sees the release of our Room 237 hat, the scarier companion to the phenomenon that is/was our Overlook hat of the famous carpet design from the Shining. Well incase you didn't know, this is the carpet from the room they were warned to stay out of! These might not hang about long either!





Then on Thursday 14th we release our Villain hats! Brand new designs in red and blue with the usual wondeful mix of colours in the Donegal tweed. 

AND they'll be more Weirs due online w/c 18th January... TC
