THE AZOFF SHIRT...




Our next shirt with tuktuk goes online tonight. The 'Azoff' shirt is an oxford shirt in three colours and style inspired by Jonah Hil's Donnie Azoff character from The Wolf of Wall Street. So defraud a bunch of wealthy investors, snort a load of beak, smoke some crack on your birthday and marry your hot cousin. Then bend your mind on dodgy prescription drugs...or maybe don't, just get the shirt instead!
Online at the usual time of 7pm GMT. TC

MADE IN PORTUGAL.

When we first started doing this thing ten years ago, making our own clothing beyond printed t-shirts seemed almost a bit dream like, as the time and products released has flown by, it's sometimes nice to take a step back and look at everything we've done thus far. We still remain a very small operation - a two man team, 100% independent, but over the years we have been lucky enough to meet and work with plenty of good folk. 

Newfangle clothing based in Porto are just that, the coastal city known for it's cobbled streets and known as 'the Unvanquished city' is somewhere we have yet to visit, but there's still time. Famous for it's Port wine and the production of cork, Portugal is pretty good at making clothing too, they aren't too bad at football either! 
We've had the pleasure to work with all round nice guy Ramiro on several occasions, notably our two most recent collaborations with the 'Treinador' coach jacket and 'Flanar' shorts, both given their Portuguese namesakes - simply translating as coach jacket and strolling shorts. Good anywhere as Newfangle's motto goes, we agree.

Portugal has a good track record with garment manufacturing, some of our favourite menswear labels such as 6876, Garbstore and Folk have turned to Portugal for some of their wares too. For a brand like ours, we don't mass produce but also like to make decent enough quantities to supply our customer base. The biggest stumbling block has always been finding factories that make the right stuff at the right time and in numbers you are able to work with. We have found Portugal a viable option for this and a better alternative than going much further afield for less money, not through snobbery, just out of preference.





Going back to making genuinely good cut and sewn gear is something that we thrive on, the quality and construction of our coach jacket, with it's optional hood is spot on, it's one of our favourite items to date. I've worn mine every week since we took delivery. I'm surprised we still have any left in all honesty. The shorts too, are great and the two previous releases went down very well with all who bought them. Grab them while you can! As I type, we should have some new hats (made over there) delivered soon too, watch this space. Obrigado! DC

THE 'SUGDEN' SHIRT.






Photography by Jake Millers.
Our latest round of shirts in collaboration with tuktuk are with us and the first release is the 'Sugden' shirt.
This Gingham style check comes in nice a nice colour combo of muted miniature checks. This would look good in the town or the country, so we're calling it the Sugden shirt as it would still look dapper after shoveling shite/shearing sheep all day and then having a nice good pint in the Woolpack! Button down collar, with a new asymmetrical double pocket design, locket loop and box pleat. Dual branded woven logo to top pocket, finished off with genuine mother of pearl buttons. Made from 100% cotton poplin. Excellent quality medium weight fabric with a soft hand feel. This one goes online this Thursday 7pm GMT (from both websites). TC

FORZA CONNOISSEUR / SKULL TEE


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

WILLIE X BOBBY + MUSH = NEW TEE!





















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

THE TREINADOR JACKET...




'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
