Get over to our website now for some excellent Festive Inspiration…..Whether it’s a present for a friend or loved one; or simply just a well deserved treat for yourself, we have something that is sure to fit the bill.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we have so many great gift ideas; this proved true last year when Hannah Weller visited the website last to look for a Christmas present for none other than The Modfather himself. She later contacted us to say that Paul really loved the superb tartan lined, coloured leather record boxes by ‘TukTuk’ which she bought for him.  Hannah kindly also gave us a bit of a plug on Twitter too, so naturally we ‘pinned’ the Tweet.

These Record Boxes are of course very popular indeed at this time of year, as they make that perfect gift for any owner of a treasured vinyl collection ( whether it be 7″ or 12″) Good news if you’re after one ……we’ve still got some left in stock but you’ll need to hurry as they’re selling fast!

We’ve also got some great things going on in our Shirt Department this Season. Firstly, we have the ‘Detroit’ Limited Edition Gingham Shirt by Pellicano in Sky Blue or Pink. These have been Limited to 75 in each colour and have created quite a stir; especially since Steve Cradock sported one in a Questions & Answers Session he did backstage at a recent Specials gig at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall…..See the video (and stunning shirt!) HERE . We’re sure you’ll agree that Mr Cradock looks very suave in his Detroit…

Talking of creating a stir…….we were very proud to work together on the design of two Limited Edition Collaboration Shirts with Pellicano Menswear – released especially for the Autumn/Winter Season……. First up is the superb ‘GENO’ Charcoal and Off-White Striped, Button Down…One of which was snapped up by Sir Horace Gentleman from The Specials (more of that and a picture or two, coming soon! – keep an eye out on our ‘WATCH THE CLOTH’ Newsletters)

Second up we have the ‘GIOVANNI’ – a Round Collar, Double-cuff Dress Shirt in a sophisticated, lightweight Sky Blue chambray. Again, this shirt hasn’t gone unnoticed by the musical fraternity with Steve White ordering one from us recently – This master of the sticks needs no introduction, having played in The Style Council; then being a permanent member of Paul Weller’s Band for many years and more recently a member of The Family Silver (again, we’ve been promised a photo by Steve, which we’ll share in a ‘WATCH THE CLOTH’ Newsletter!). This shirt looks particularly great when paired with a pair of our Modern Classic Clothing Logo Cufflinks and, as you’ll note from the copy of his tweet below…….Steve W liked these too!
