Tomorrow sees the release of our next pin badge, it's been a while and with the return of Rather Not Say due soon we thought this was pretty appropriate. The logo is of course based on the 'Retour A La Normale' poster from the student uprisings of 1968 - meaning Return to Normal. (Not based on Derby County okay!) so add a bit of history to your collars. It's online tomorrow at 7pm GMT (usual rules apply).
Monday see's one of the first hat's of many over the coming months. 'The Garber'

What do you get when you cross Spain with Wales and England? more dead nice shoes!
The El Capitan II shoe is a superb new collaboration with Veras shoes. A premium suede upper on a super light EVA sole, making these very light and comfy. Whilst most suede shoes come in the usual sensible tones of Browns and Beige, our first installment of this new and improved model comes in some daring colours - Acid Green, Ice Blue and Orange, something we've always wanted to buy, but seldom see ourselves.
With contrast leather trims and leather laces, suede swing tag and dual branded stamped insole, branding is kept subtle. A slightly familiar 'silhouette' (based on an old Connoisseur favourite) is the basis of the upper, whilst the light EVA sole unit on a Salpa welt gives this shoe it's own style. With a clear 1990's acid casual influence going on. Made in a long established footwear factory in Spain these are produced just for us in a one-off run in smaller numbers.
Now available excusively from our store DC

Tomorrow at 7pm see's the release of our two new products produced with Ebbets Field Flannels. We have a baseball cap and if you know Ebbets then you'll know they are the best at the baseball cap game which is why weve got them to produce another one this year. And we've done a vintage style coach jacket/windbreaker with the alternative Two C branded trademark on the front.
This years cap is a navy wool 6 panel pinstripe cap, plain peak of course, featuring contrast top button and full skull logo embroidery on the front. Comes with the usual tremendous Ebbets details including the inside detail, including the under visor green satin, black cotton sweatband, dual branding and adjustable brown leather back strap.
The jacket Classic baseball style Coaches jacket made from vintage rayon/cotton satin by the best in the business. Think the Wanderers if they were from the modern day North of England.

Yep, that's right, last month we released this tee and it sold out in a few minutes, one of the quickest selling tees we've done actually. And, due to demand, we've managed to get a restock in double quick time.
We've even got it on Navy now aswell as the Purple and White we did previously.
They go online tomorrow, 7pm. Just remember folks it's a bank holiday weekend so they won't be processed until the following Tuesday. Worth the wait though. TC

That's right the long running Northern Music Factory design f- a Connoisseur staple from day one, has had a new edition, this time on our rather remarkable heat reactive tees. Basically, if you missed our Osti and Pigeon tees previously - this means they change colour when reacted with heat, these look superb and as always, it's something a little bit different. We've got Green tees that go Yellow, Blue and Grey that go White and Purple that change to Pink. Technology hey?
Anyway they'll be online tomorrow at 7pm. One run before summer sticks his big coat on for another year. TC

Tonight see's the release of our latest 'Villain' hat, the second of a variety incoming of some of the finest, premium head wear a man could don! These one's are made for us in a lighter-weight special linen, by the 'Masters of Linen', no less! It's navy in colour and inspired by everyone's favourite mob uncle, Corrado Soprano. Coming in three sizes and in rather limited numbers! A summery version of the soon to be arriving A/W tweedness.
Tomorrow see's the release of our For Court, For Courting tee, which is the second in the series of an ongoing collection of footwear tees, inspired by the old Royal Mail dress code in the workplace posters. More to follow featuring choice footwear of the trainer and shoe variety. This one features a pair of Indoor Super and Clarks Desert Boot.
Thursday finally see's the release of our ale, Hoppy Mondays, after a slight delay whilst licensing was sorted, now is the time. Yes we've always wanted to produce an ale and we teamed up with our mates in Soho Weekend Offender and Dancing Duck Brewery to brew a rather splendid bottle of hops mad goodness! The beer will be available in special 4 pack gift packs and will be sold directly from the Weekend Offender website, (they've got the logistics and team in place you see). We're excited and proud, we hope you will be too.
Soon to come, we've got the first of three new shirts with tuktuk, the Clarks collection, CASUALCONUTS tee, Connoisseur FC tops, our USA made, Warriors/Wanderers/Baseball inspired coach jackets made with Ebbets Field Flannels and more. TC
