“Repairing is Caring” reads outside Swedish denim brand Nudie Jeans‘ new London based concept and repair store. The recent enterprise aims at giving its customers much more than a basic “enter, purchase and leave experience,” with a conceptually driven retail space, as well as services for already purchased goods. Such offerings include free jean repair, cleaning services and 20% off for new purchases if old pairs are returned. The ground level shop is located at 29, D’Arbley Street, near Soho square.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Store & Tattoo Studio

Dr-Jekyll-and-Mr-Hyde-Tattoo-1

For those of you who dont know I am from up North, living now in Newcastle and for most of my working life based in Middlesbrough. I have worked for Triads, Psyche, Van Mildert, Cruise and owned my own streetwear store which are a few of the most well regarded stores within the UK fashion industry and I have always shouted that the North East is busting at the seams with creative people.

Two of them are Andrew Wetherell and Anthony Wilkinson, who I have known for a pretty long time.. Contradictory to the book by Robert Louis Stephenson, that explores both good and evil, life and death and the duality of human nature, in Andrew and Anthony it was a meeting of minds. Life long best friends always sharing a vision and excitement for all things original, different, quirky and out of the ordinary. Which is exactly what hits you once you step through the door. The decor is amazing with vinatge cabinets, stuffed animals and all storts of things that look like they have come from a 60’s hammer horror film set a bit like a Old Curosity Shop…right up my street!

Then we have the tattoo studio, Anthony is a self taught tattooist with a unique sense of style specialising in intricate dot and line work, taking influence and inspiration from the likes of victorian illustration, old copper plate engravings, vintage and geomectric designs. Rather than allowing you to be impulsive in your design choices, some of which you may come to regret, following a thorough consultation where Anthony will get to know you, your individual tastes and styles, he will design a bespoke piece of art for you that you will still love in years to come.

Finally you have the clothing side of things Hand picked rare vintage menswear… from work wear, rare military,  denim, outerwear to Americana & Rare sportwear which the likes of Levi’s Edwin, Polo, RRL, Woolrich, Baracuta, Adidas, LL Bean all make an appearance.  Check them out with their details below.

Wolsey London Store Opening

Last Thursday night I had the pleasure to joining influential buyers, bloggers, and general movers and shakers from the menswear industry (don’t know why I was invited!?) to the opening of British Heritage brand, WOLSEY’s flagship store in good auld London Town.

Regular readers will know I have done a number of posts regarding Wolsey’s products, the main reason being I believe that this brand has been in hibernation for a long time, and now on the cloud of the heritage culture we have created in the industry will reach heights that it hasn’t before in its 257 years.

So then the store…. Located on Brewer Street in the heart of Soho, the store feels like Wolsey’s ethos contemporary styling of iconic classics. Brushed steel beams, exposed brick walls, aged wooden tables and original draper’s cabinets. To be honest it was totally what I expected the shop would look and thats not a criticism, it does what it says on the tin not another brand that produces a cutting edge design on the facia and interior and forgets that it no way reflects the product thats housed in it. The product, ascetics and the feel of the store perfectly fit together for me a store where you want to shop.

Check out the store for yourselves

The Chimp Store: “Barnet of the Apes” Editorial

The Chimp Store presents a quirky editorial this season, that is to some extent literal to what the store name implies. Enlisting photographer Harlton Chesterton to come up with a series of black and white images, the Leeds-based retailer flaunts a vast selection of beanies as worn by the ape-masked models. Titled “Barnet of the Apes,” the lookbook draws attention to select stocked brands including Crooks & Castles, UNDFTD, HUF and Dickies. Be sure to check out the editorial above.
