Following on from our Black Lodge hat from several years back, we've finally got round to doing a Twin Peaks themed tee. Without doubt, the Soprano's completely changed TV forever, but some years before, an early front runner for a completely revolutionary (and oddball) TV series was David Lynch's Twin Peaks, which deservedly became a cult classic and then surprised the world with this years return, some 25 years later. 
Design wise, we've decided to go with a play on one of the visuals from the show's Sheriff department logo. 
So here we present the Connoisseur Department in Twin C'sColour wise, we've based them on the Sheriff Departments uniform. So get your coffee and donuts out and tuck in. These go online tomorrow at the usual time of 7pm.

That's right. Here at CC HQ we need to clear some space to make way for incoming product and so we can re-organise our space. So win-win for the customer as we offer 22% off all current stock, this includes the last remaining sale tees, so grab one or two at a bargain price of less than £16!
Even our last remaining luxury hats that are already reduced are included too. AND, AND because we're f*cking mad, we've even included our last remaining outerwear items too. Our wonderful smocks reduced to a silly price. 
All you have to do is ensure you enter the code 22OFF before you checkout. 
There's no catch, the only thing is it's subject to available stock, so there's only random sizes on some product and as it's further reductions we accept no exchanges/returns. Thanks.

Introducing the 'Overlook' collection. 
Arriving soon is a new collaboration with Afield.  
The bonkers hat that became nothing short of a phenomenon is back this time, we've got a bucket hat that's reversible, a right bobby dazzler pair of swim shorts and the perfect shirt for courting in, maybe. All due for arrival very soon. Keep an eye out for updates. 

We've got a bunch of new tees due to land over the coming weeks too. All will be revealed as they arrive. 

Our next release will be our new Doughboy Rugby shirt. Yes that's right, it's a new old skool rugger top crafted here in Blighty that's based on the colours of the younger version of Doughboy's snazzy tee in Boyz 'n The Hood. Why? Just because. This one will be online towards the end of the month. 

And we'll also have some more stupendous caps from Ebbets to come too, plus the second batch of our Connoisseur FC tops. 

FINALLY - PLEASE NOTE: We will be away from Sat 8th - Sun 16th on holiday so please be aware that orders purchased in this time will be delayed in receiving. 

Many thanks.

Ice white shirts! It's a new strip for '17/18. 
This time Connoisseur FC have signed up (not literally) with British Rail to highlight the need to re-nationalise the old railways. Or maybe we just wanted to put arguably the greatest logos of all time, on a nice football shirt.

Perfect summer attire for the beer garden and a kick-about down the park.
A classic Adidas jersey made with ultra lightweight climalite® fabric that wicks moisture and keeps the wearer sweat free. Three stripes on the sleeves, round neck and features embroidered two C's badge and screenprinted 'sponsor'.
These go online tomrrow evening at 7pm (GMT) Please note, we expect these to go fast, there will now be a second 'drop' over the coming weeks, so bear that in mind. Cheers.

Now then, a really nice jacket NOW at an even greater price. It's always a little disheartening to have to place reductions on a product we're proud of. And we're really happy with this one! But so be it, you won't find better quality and production for this money. Last of the lot remaining. Subject to availability. ️

Monday, 24 April 2017


Now and then some of our older designs are too good to leave in an archive and thus we're doing a re-run of the Roses tee from around four years back, way before a hint or whisper that they'd actually reform btw! 
Featuring sublime artwork from Peter O'Toole it's available again on Pink and Sky tees from tomorrow at the usual time of 7pm GMT.

As always here at CC for the last eleven years and beyond we're inspired by the things we see, the places we go and that can be absolutely anything! Clobber, pubs, music film and er....bagels!
This latest tee is the culmination of several silly o'clock in the morning imbibed, or hazy/lazy Sunday visits to the East End institution that is Beigel Bake, Brick Lane Bakery.
Open 24/7 serving 7000 bagels a day. Aside from the obvious beigel, one thing that always stands out winking at us is that glowing lit up sign of the little guy cooking them up. So much so that after our last visit we decided to sketch it up and put it on a tee. So there we are. Online this FRIDAY at 7pm GMT.

Spring is upon us, or at least it has been approching the last few days with the sun shining and the birds singing. It does drop at night and it might yet snow in April as the last few years, but it does feel like spring and summer proper are around the corner. 
We've been developing some new exciting product and ideas behind the scenes (more info as it comes) not to mention some nice new tees, the first of which our new striped tee should arrive with us early next month. Release date will be confirmed ASAP. 
Also we've added a few reductions on our remaining headwear as we look to make space for new arrivals and we've still got some of our excellent anoraks available, not to forget our Treinador Ground jackets at an insane price! 

Please note: orders placed this week from Weds onwards will be subject to a few days delay as we'll be away on business, returning on the 4th April, apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. TC

As spring has arrived, bobble hat season officially closes tomorrow night with this, our final release of bobbleness until next A/W. The Tramsterdam Weir is another new one based on places you go, things you see and another entry into the series of specialist, niche public transport seat patterned, themed hats. Our 'urban camoflage' range if you will. This one is inspired by Amsterdam's tram system and the natty seat pattern, which looks like a cool 90's football shirt or something. Complimented by the contrast yellow pom-pom based on the handrails. We noticed this last year after more jaunts to the Dutch capital, where almost anything goes. You can buy sex and drugs as easily as you can buy cheese and tulips if that floats your boat. It's a great place for a beer anyway and another smart titfer to add to our ecletic collection! 

Online tomorrow at 7pm GMT as always!

Tomorrow see's the penultimate hat of this winter online. The Hazard weir. The yellow and black 'hazardous' chevrons is synonymous in Manchester for obvious reasons, this was one we wanted to do for a while but thought it may be a bit too crazy, it is in a good way! Online at the usual time of 7pm (GMT) 

Monday, 20 February 2017


Yes, that's right another fantastic hat to add to the collection, even if we do say so ourselves. It's online this Wednesday 7pm (GMT). Usual situation, limited numbers produced, fastest fingers first etc etc. Peace.

Round two of our Trainspotter inspired hats, in 2014 we did these two hats and they were quite a personal favourite. We decided to revisit them this winter in new colours, of course! They're available this Tuesday at 7pm GMT, aren't we romantic?
So get your satchel's out, don't forget your pad and biro (And your Tizer and Twix) and get mooching to the station!

As always limited numbers of each produced, fastest fingers first and all that malarkey.

Another chance to purchase our ACAB tee on a limited run. Available on both Navy and White tees. This one sees a newish take of an old Curva Nord design from back in the day. The classic Club Atl├ętico Boca Juniors crest is given a new twist - intitials with a world famous acronym come into play. "All Connoisseurs Are Brilliant"? 'Andrew, Carl And Brian?' 'All Cats are Beautiful'? we'll let you be the judge of what it may stand for!
As a bonus it even features a Frank Zappa inspired hem print that fits the bill for obvious reasons. Also features special new screenprint technology too! It's online tomorrow at 7pm
