Now then, this Friday see's the release of two new tees. 

First up the 'Forza Connoisseur' As part of tenth anniversary year, (we know, it's mad!) we got our friend from over the Pennines Adam Gill (Grammar Studio) to do us a nice new typography style design. 
Something a little different and nice and bright for the sun, whilst it lasts. What does Forza mean? Well there's a couple or three answers when you look into it, the literal translation is "to be strong", or "Come On!"/"Go!" ... So yeah basically strength, power and "Go Connoisseur" if you will and it's on Sky and Yellow.

And we've also got the 'Skull' tee. A collaboration with our Stockholm based friend A Northern Soul, this features a smaller chest print of the Skull in a hat design which featured on our 2nd Ebbets made caps. Monochrome vibes all day long here. White tee with black print. Also features the 'Fifty Fifty' logo to left sleeve based on the Sixty/Forty logo of yesteryear and because it's a 50/50 collabo! This one is on a tagless tee, which means there's no tags/labels on it, printed inner neck label, for a little change. BOTH online this Friday 7pm GMT. TC

We've teamed up with our friends from Outskirts Moscow, to come up with the obligatory 'Euros' t-shirt.

Willie and Bobby are long term followers of their national side, they'll go far and wide for the Three Lions, putting their fierce rivalries back home, aside. That is until the inevitable early exit from the tournament for Woy's boys occurs and a combination of too much sea air, too much rich food and way too much strong continental lager takes it's toll and sees them kicking seven shades of shite out of one another in another terrible case of in-fighting.

Featuring a nod to France 98's fearless anti-hero only known as 'Green Shirt Mush' on the back hem of the t-shirt. With FREE exclusive cut-out stickers too. TC

Released tomorrow from 7pm

'Treinador' which is Portugese for coach, right. This is a reworking of the classic coach jacket and made in Portugal, see. Which is where the title comes in, because things need to have a name!

The Treinador jacket is made from a lovely soft cotton, a nice lightweight jacket for the warmer but unpredictable weather. Made in collabration with NewFangle Clothing, this features two front hand pockets, a button off drawstring hood, inside pocket for your phone and a large rear YKK zippered hip pocket. Cotton twill drawstring to hem. 
Branding is kept to a more subtle minimum with 'This Thing Of Ours' press studs on the outer and inner neck label. Classic silhouette that will never date, smart and understated, on a really nice shade of darker blue. We're really happy with how these turned out and we're sure you will be too. 

All details are now available to view and it'll be available to buy from both NewFangle's webshop and ours, this coming Wednesday 7pm. TC

Introducing Winston!
One of the good things doing what we do is traveling about and meeting new friends. Back in 2014 We visited Hamburg and a new shop that was in the early stages of being worked on, last winter it became a reality and Casual Couture was born so be sure to check them out.  
During the visit we were introduced to the great Winston the Bulldog.
And as things go whilst having a beer and sampling the delights of the Reeperbahn between us all it was decided a collabo was in order and so with Hawkins and Joseph we present the 'Winston' tee. As part of the collabo there was also a very exclusive and rather rare Weir featuring Winston that came with the tee and various other bits exclusively and was available from Casual Couture. Now's your chance to purchase the tee from our shop. 

Also comes with a special commemorative pennant. 

T-shirt available on both Navy and (Oxblood) Maroon this Wednesday at the usual time of 7pm, GMT.

This is a local take on a classic and certain 'familiar thing'. This sees a mountain landscape replaced with a great ilustration of scenes from Greater Manchester.
Stockport's famous Viaduct - the largest brick structure in the UK (and Pyramid) are juxtaposed alongside Mancunian landmarks such as the G-Mex, the Urbis and the Hacienda, with the Beetham Tower - the tallest skyscraper outside London.
This design comes with a small minimal print to the chest with large back print, perfect for the six and a half days of sunshine we'll get this year.
Available on White, Mint Green and Grey Marl t-shirts. Professionally screenprinted in Manchester, woven label to left sleeve, free button badge. Online Friday 8th April, 7pm GMT. TC

Our own final Weir until next A/W is the Intercity themed Weir.

Arriving on Platform Connoisseur - Wednesday 23rd March, 7pm GMT, will depart very quickly after, mind the gap. Bring your sweets and don't forget your pocket money!
Our final Weir for this winter. Continuing the familiar British Rail theme here with a new hat inspired by the colours of the old classic Intercity APT trains which were famous in the early 1980's for their high speeds and 'Cheap Awayday Returns'. 
We're not trainspotters or railway nerds, we just think it's a great colour combo.

One size fits all. Limited numbers as always. Strictly one per customer. Subject to availability, whilst stocks last. Fastest fingers first!

‘Commit no nuisance on these walls, kiss no girls, kick no balls…’
Based on the famous old Victorian street signs the eagle eyed may find in old corners of London. This was a polite way of saying don't have a piss here, which ironically, was exactly how we first found it many moons ago, during the walk between pubs.
The clever twist on this design is the use of 3M Reflective ink, which gives it a double meaning. Not to mention hours of fun with your iPhone camera flash.
New tees and sweats online this Wednesday, 7pm GMT.
