NEW STUFF INCOMING...


Now then, those L/S contrast collar polos we've been waiting on will finally be with us next week and online very soon! A long time coming we're rather proud of them!
We've got loads of tees coming too, online and to all participating stockists, numbers being finalised then we're good to go. This Thursday we'll have Proper Mag, Issue 18 online and more new releases next week. Then of course we get pretty serious with some outerwear that's incoming. 
Please note: We'll be away from Tuesday 19th-Friday 22nd April so orders will be subject to a small delay in being received. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. TC

WINSTON CONNOISSEUR!
































Introducing Winston!
One of the good things doing what we do is traveling about and meeting new friends. Back in 2014 We visited Hamburg and a new shop that was in the early stages of being worked on, last winter it became a reality and Casual Couture was born so be sure to check them out.  
During the visit we were introduced to the great Winston the Bulldog.
And as things go whilst having a beer and sampling the delights of the Reeperbahn between us all it was decided a collabo was in order and so with Hawkins and Joseph we present the 'Winston' tee. As part of the collabo there was also a very exclusive and rather rare Weir featuring Winston that came with the tee and various other bits exclusively and was available from Casual Couture. Now's your chance to purchase the tee from our shop. 

Also comes with a special commemorative pennant. 

T-shirt available on both Navy and (Oxblood) Maroon this Wednesday at the usual time of 7pm, GMT.

THE VENTURE TEE...

  




This is a local take on a classic and certain 'familiar thing'. This sees a mountain landscape replaced with a great ilustration of scenes from Greater Manchester.
Stockport's famous Viaduct - the largest brick structure in the UK (and Pyramid) are juxtaposed alongside Mancunian landmarks such as the G-Mex, the Urbis and the Hacienda, with the Beetham Tower - the tallest skyscraper outside London.
This design comes with a small minimal print to the chest with large back print, perfect for the six and a half days of sunshine we'll get this year.
Available on White, Mint Green and Grey Marl t-shirts. Professionally screenprinted in Manchester, woven label to left sleeve, free button badge. Online Friday 8th April, 7pm GMT. TC

INTERCITY WEIR


Our own final Weir until next A/W is the Intercity themed Weir.


Arriving on Platform Connoisseur - Wednesday 23rd March, 7pm GMT, will depart very quickly after, mind the gap. Bring your sweets and don't forget your pocket money!
Our final Weir for this winter. Continuing the familiar British Rail theme here with a new hat inspired by the colours of the old classic Intercity APT trains which were famous in the early 1980's for their high speeds and 'Cheap Awayday Returns'. 
We're not trainspotters or railway nerds, we just think it's a great colour combo.

One size fits all. Limited numbers as always. Strictly one per customer. Subject to availability, whilst stocks last. Fastest fingers first!

COMMIT NO NUISANCE





‘Commit no nuisance on these walls, kiss no girls, kick no balls…’
Based on the famous old Victorian street signs the eagle eyed may find in old corners of London. This was a polite way of saying don't have a piss here, which ironically, was exactly how we first found it many moons ago, during the walk between pubs.
The clever twist on this design is the use of 3M Reflective ink, which gives it a double meaning. Not to mention hours of fun with your iPhone camera flash.
New tees and sweats online this Wednesday, 7pm GMT.

THE ISOLA DI INTENDITORE WEIR

THE HIP WEIRS...





Thursday the 3rd March sees the 'All City' Hip Weir released.
Hip store was founded some 29 years ago in the heart of Leeds City centre, an institution of independent menswear, so when we met up with founder Everton a couple of years ago, it was a pleasure to supply our brand, then the following winter do some exclusive Weirs for them: the 'home' and 'away' Weirs.
Now following on from them (and largely due to local demand) they present the 
'All City Weir', a hybrid of both, celebrating the city of Leeds. 
Available exclusively from Hip - instore and online. 
Watch for details. TC


#LOVEHATS




Tomorrow see's the release of three of our flat caps. These are the 'Uncle Jun' hat, a navy herringbone tweed in a lighter weight, inspired by The Sopranos character played with such gusto by Dominic Chianese. 

Then there's the final version of the 'Villain' for this winter, this time the same silhouette coming in a British Wool fabric with a snazzy repetitive diamond like pattern. 



And the Hodges Buggati too. Coming in a sterling check in a cashmere and wool mix material, it's one of our faves for this winter and the option of being able to cover your shell likes as it gets colder is very welcome. All three hats are online tomorrow at 7pm GMT. There's also a wonderful scarf that matches this hat too, available separately. Good as gold these! As always limited numbers. And don't forget there's three sizes with these so check your measurements out first! TC

THE PINK WEIR!
































This Wednesday see's the launch of the Pink Weir. 
This one has been on the to do list for a while, catering for the female fans (and daring lads too) and we decided given the colour choice it would be a good fit and make sense to offer a percent of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Care charity. 
It's online at the usual time of 7pm GMT and as usual they'll likely be snapped up in quick time! TC
