As spring has arrived, bobble hat season officially closes tomorrow night with this, our final release of bobbleness until next A/W. The Tramsterdam Weir is another new one based on places you go, things you see and another entry into the series of specialist, niche public transport seat patterned, themed hats. Our 'urban camoflage' range if you will. This one is inspired by Amsterdam's tram system and the natty seat pattern, which looks like a cool 90's football shirt or something. Complimented by the contrast yellow pom-pom based on the handrails. We noticed this last year after more jaunts to the Dutch capital, where almost anything goes. You can buy sex and drugs as easily as you can buy cheese and tulips if that floats your boat. It's a great place for a beer anyway and another smart titfer to add to our ecletic collection! 

Online tomorrow at 7pm GMT as always!

Tomorrow see's the penultimate hat of this winter online. The Hazard weir. The yellow and black 'hazardous' chevrons is synonymous in Manchester for obvious reasons, this was one we wanted to do for a while but thought it may be a bit too crazy, it is in a good way! Online at the usual time of 7pm (GMT)

Round two of our Trainspotter inspired hats, in 2014 we did these two hats and they were quite a personal favourite. We decided to revisit them this winter in new colours, of course! They're available this Tuesday at 7pm GMT, aren't we romantic?
So get your satchel's out, don't forget your pad and biro (And your Tizer and Twix) and get mooching to the station!

As always limited numbers of each produced, fastest fingers first and all that malarkey.

...Here he is featuring an original commission from Scott Bongos from 2014, though he's ditched his diamond knit in favour of a bit of Stone Island in a nice Fuschia/pink set off nicely on a Black tee. It's online tomorrow at 7pm.

Another chance to purchase our ACAB tee on a limited run. Available on both Navy and White tees. This one sees a newish take of an old Curva Nord design from back in the day. The classic Club Atl├ętico Boca Juniors crest is given a new twist - intitials with a world famous acronym come into play. "All Connoisseurs Are Brilliant"? 'Andrew, Carl And Brian?' 'All Cats are Beautiful'? we'll let you be the judge of what it may stand for!
As a bonus it even features a Frank Zappa inspired hem print that fits the bill for obvious reasons. Also features special new screenprint technology too! It's online tomorrow at 7pm

We have worked with Scotts Menswear and One True Saxon on a special edition charity Weir hat, this is for a great cause - the Teenage Cancer Trust. We chose the colours based on their own colour scheme, which in turn has given us a great looking hat too.

was diagnosed with cancer at just 18 years old. Before his diagnosis he was very active and training to become a hairdresser. This all changed after he went to the hospital when he saw big, egg-sized lumps on his neck and learned he had acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

James’ diagnosis was just a few months ago and he is now being treated at The Christie in Manchester, a Teenage Cancer Trust Associated Unit. He is now supporting a fundraising initiative to help raise money for the charity, by modelling the collaboration hat we have done with Scotts menswear. Proceeds from the sales of the hat are going toward Teenage Cancer Trust to help support young people with cancer, like James.

The hat is released on Thursday (9am) exclusively via Scotts.

As always this time of year things post-wise can get a bit silly. We please ask you to allow extra time to receive orders than normal as everywhere is extra busy! 
Our last 'guaranteed' pre-Xmas postal date for UK is Tuesday 20th December and for Europe Wednesday 14th December. Our shop remains open 24/7 all over Xmas and New Year but post office trips will be less frequent than usual as the post offices will be closed and like everyone else we will be having some time off too though we will make trips to the post office as and when it's open to avoid long waits. Thank you for your understanding and have a very Merry Christmas and celebrate the end of an eventful 2016 of course from T&D at CC.
