Here at Number Six London we stock a wide variety of brands. Each one scoured from across the globe. As different as they might be they all share a common passion for creating products that are manifestations of the values that they believe in. Something we are passionate about at Number Six London ourselves. One of these brands is Vanishing Elephant. Founded in 2008 by Felix Chan, Huw Bennett and Arran Russell the trio have pushed the boundaries of menswear with each passing year. Their first Vanishing Elephant collection was released in 2009 and won the Designer of The Year title at the GQ's Men of the Year awards. Their cuts and fits don't stray too far away from the classic silhouette but the same cannot be said about the prints and patterns they are now famous for. This modern twist keeps them in demand with each passing season. We stock a wide range of Vanishing Elephant pieces here at Number Six and some of them are even in the Sale at the moment. Our favourites include the Vanishing Elephant Blue Floral Classic Short Sleeve Shirt which is made from crisp 100% cotton and is perfect for those humid summer days. It features an all over small floral print and button down collar. The Vanishing Elephant boys have also designed a great range of socks with prints ranging from classic rugby stripes to Aztec and Jacquard prints. Shop the entire collection here.
A new month and some new garments. With Easter upon us an extra long weekend is in store for us and however you plan to spend it we've got pieces for every occasion.
Aloha is the perfect word to describe this range of shirts from Paradise Found. A wonderful selection of Calla Lilly and Hibiscus shirts that take you back to the warm welcoming days of Hawaii in the 1930's and 1940's. These could not be more ideal for those long, warm summers days. The shirts have all over flower pattern which is one of the most authentic versions of the island's favourite designs. Including a slightly tamer white on white design, these are a Tom Selleck favourite, need we say anymore??
Just incase you couldn't get enough of the Vanishing Elephant gear we got in a few weeks ago we've added a new piece in the form of a Maroon Pattern Arylide Overshirt. Made from a relatively thick and soft 100% maroon cotton and featuring a shirt collar with an all over contrasting knit pattern really gives this item a warm feel for those cooler evenings. With button fastening, left chest patch pocket, two large hip patch pockets, button cuffs and brown elbow patches.
Another update to a range, this time its Suit. With a couple of brilliant yet simple, lightweight, everyday Earl jackets and sturdy, 100% cotton Diego shirts. Both smart enough for any Easter Sunday meal round your Grans and warm enough to see you through the dip in temperature. To complete the look we've also got in some simple, classic Chinos available in a variety of colours alongside some Berlin tees so you can be entirely Suit'd and booted!
Casual everyday shorts are just what is needed to be stocked up on this time of year and once you buy these timeless pieces you probably won't need to stock up again next year (Unless you want to of course)! The main focus for the new items we've got hold of from NN07 is the Larry and Will shorts, it says it all in the name, relaxed designs both with their own different touches that Ulrik and Lindh would like to wear, simple as that.
If you aren't quite feeling brave enough to don the shorts yet then don't worry we've got James Raw jeans, Japanese selvedge denim, woven on old style shuttle looms that could be more suited to you. Completing your lot from NN07 this week is a a piece that shows that they aren't driven by what trend is the flavour of the month, a youthful yet classic styled Lenny sweat in red. A quality crew neck that has ribbed neck with V insert, cuffs and hem and the NN07 logo badge to the lower left above the hem.
What an item to finish on. Gazing out of our shop window, or any window where you are now, we think you can agree (and we dont want to say the 'R' word) but showers do look inevitable so what better way to re-lift your spirits then with this outstanding and vibrant Purple GI Parka from Garbstore. Bringing colour to those greyer days an old classic given a new lease of life.
From all of us at the Old Ship, have a good Easter and remember FREE SHIPPING WORLD WIDE
