MCR-PICCADILLY-LDN JACKET AND WEIR.


Next Tuesday at the usual time of 7pm see's the release of The Piccadilly anorak. 

This is a new popover style jacket we have made in collaboration with Weekend Offender - a further outing of the Weekend Connoisseur mashup of both brands. 
This takes name and inspiration from our surroundings, there's a Piccadilly in both London and Manchester. There's a 'trainspotting' theme throughout this one, but that doesn't mean you have to go and hang around stations drinking Tizer and taking notes.
Fabric is 100% cotton poplin bonded with yarn dyed chambray outer. Features two top chest pockets with 'Rite in the Rain' waterproof notepad. Sleeve pocket, two kangaroo handwarmer pockets, pocket to rear. Half zipper to side for easy removal over the head. Drawstring hem and waist, collaborative branding and press studs. In addition to the jacket we also have the Piccadilly Weir hat, which will be released as part of the collaboration. The hat and jacket will firstly be available in 50 pieces to purchase exclusively together on Tuesday 17th April at 7pm (from both websites) If there are any remaining they will go on separate sale the day after. Please note, the hat and jacket will not be allowed to be returned separately if for any reason you change your mind both will have to be returned as it is sold as one transaction.

MERSEY TEES

Two new striped tees released next Monday at the usual time of 7pm (GMT)
Our Mersey 'Marina' style tees. A humourous nod to the famous river that not many people know actually starts right here in Stockport. We've got two new nice striped tees with a subtle chest print of 'Connoisseur England' which is a little homage to the stuff we wore back in the day.

GEOMETRIC WEIR!

'Refuge' (noun) - a place or situation providing safety or shelter.
It's also the name of a suave (after extensive renovation) bar in town (Manchester), that this geometric patterned new guy just might have taken it's inspiration from. 
Like we always say, sometimes the strangest things catch your eye and you find yourself saying 'that would look good on a hat' and sometimes we do it and they just work. He's like a younger cousin of his much more famous Overlook brother. The colours work well, it's one of our favourites. It's online tomorrow night at 7pm GMT.

MIDNIGHT OVERLOOK...



Our cult The Shining inspired Overlook hat was the very first time anybody had the idea of putting that geometric pattern into clothing, many have since followed our lead. BUT we're not done with that, following our recent shirts, shorts and summer hats and socks, the Overlook returns in a brand new special edition.
Things have got a little darker, Blue hues replace the famous garish carpet colours. It takes it's name 'Midnight' from the chilling final scene of the movie with the accompanying Al Bowlly and Ray Noble and His Orchestra song. It's finally here and online Tuesday 30th Jan at 7pm.
