As we approach the end of the year, once again we pay tribute to the famous folk who died this year. In the same year our own father passed away, so did people we loved, people we loathed, some shocks, some perhaps expected, some far too young. Here's a look in no particular order, at those who left us in 2013... DC

Now then. It's that time of year again. In what has probably been the most insane week since our kid and I started this thing, three big releases a day after each other, with Xmas cut off dates looming was rather insane, but appreciate people want stuff before then so we did it!
It's Weir time today. The sixth collection of the famous (or infamous) Weir ski hats, produced (as always) in strictly limited numbers and brand new colours never to be repeated. We have Purple, Blue and Grey. Beige, Orange and Charcoal and Grass, Sky and Soil.  
They're finally here and they'll be online at 7pm this evening. ;)

A couple of pointers: The likelihood is they'll go really fast, as always, so expect it! If you miss out, there's more to come. Best of luck, hope these go to the right people. We've already got headaches, so please don't make them migraines by whinging about eBay and life not being fair. 8D 

Finally the last postal date is Friday, we'll do our best to have them all out and hopefully you'll get them in time (UK) but we can't guarantee anything except we'll do our bit.

Remember also there's more options coming post Christmas and New Year.
There's also the forthcoming stockist exclusives (first look below) that'll be en route to shops for late Dec or Early Jan so watch out for notifications from all participating shops. TC
