The eagerly awaited Clarks Desert Boots collection is finally available, this has been a great project for us to work on with one of our favourite brands. As a tie-in to the 65th anniversary of the famous Desert Boot, we were asked about doing a take on this not often seen sweater from a rare black and white photo. Worn by British athlete Ken Crutchlow in 1970 when he ran across America's treacherous Death Valley in this home made sweatshirt, a pair of Desert boots, a bowler hat and a brolly. Yes, it was a bet.
The stand out piece is the sweatshirt, coming in a loopback Organic Grey marl jersey with V insert collar and black Flock fabric lettering. To accompany this, we also have a tee with the Navy and Red colours which we were lucky enough to see via the Clarks archive. We also have a 'Ken' design too illustrated by Peter O'Toole.
All available online tomorrow from 7pm. Limited to one per person on the sweatshirts.

That's right. Those Weir bobble hats have become a cult in themselves of the course of the last seven years, released in limited, non-repeated colourways they've caused a massive hoohah and upset people too every winter with demand for them incredible selling faster than tickets for Glastonbury and the like as went live and sold out in seconds.
This one, the TWEIR designed and made with TRiCKETT is like a hybrid version, made with Shetland wool, featuring a lovely bunch of shades in the wool, wool lined for extra toastiness and also features C X T detailing as well as contrasting navy top and extra dense pom pom. You can read more details here. The hat will be available from both webshops this Friday at 7pm. Limited numbers produced as always, "fastest fngers first" and all that, usual rules and terms apply.

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'
