Here's a sneak peek at a fabulous new tee design coming next year. I don't think it'll take a genius to work this one out but it's fair to say it's from something we and many others from our generation have seen a thousand times yet still hold pretty fondly! The superb illustration was specially commissioned for us by our resident cohort Mr O'Toole and we'll reveal the final design soon. CD

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012. YHN
We'll be monitoring and actioning orders over the festive period where possible - but we'll also be taking a well earned break.

Christmas Eve tomorrow, already?
We knew it was coming but it's come around all too quickly once again, we've done a fair few hats this year, over seven hundred, in several different styles in fact, and the rest of those are on the way! You may have seen the one off stockist special edition we did this week with Ran and Distant Echo, these didn't hang about we've had one or two people ask about that hat, there's half of the order on it's way to Moscow via Casual Clothing and Proudheart, you may or may not get a chance to nab one online.
Fear not, the second round of Weir (4.2) in three new colours will be available in the New Year and previews up soon. As will this excellent Weirflake design in white and brown released post Christmas and limited to just 50 per colour as usual. CD

Our mate Peter O'Toole doesn't just do great illustrations, here's his first music video for Huddersfield based indie/alternative band auditCONTROL. Look out for a couple of belting new tee designs from Mr O'T in the new year, including a superb tribute to the best kids film of our generation. CD

This year at the request of our forum membership we offered an exclusive stealth colour of the Weir bobble in smaller numbers, however, in order to make up the standard order quantity with another colour, we can now offer a brand new colour exclusive to our stockists. This was a late decision and a hasty choice of colours, but it worked out as one of the coolest colour schemes yet. Check out Ran in Liverpool and Manchester, Distant Echo (online) and Proudheart and Casual Clothing both based over in Moscow.
These may well be the least seen version of the hats yet, especially as 25 of them are heading across Europe.
