We go way way back with Oliver Spencer. Many a late night has been spent chewing the fat with him in various bars across the globe with one instance in Tokyo standing out in particular. Ever the adventurous one, Oli tucked into some pretty lively looking sea urchin and literally, within a few minutes, he had turned a whiter shade of pale and ended up spending a large proportion of that evening with his head stuck down the toilet. Just one of the many reasons why we like him. Another reason is the constantly evolving, ever impressive menswear that Oli has been producing for the last 9 years. He is a true talent and deserves to take his place right up there with the best designers that this great island has turned out in the last 20 years. The gear that we have just received into www.numbersixlondon.com is true testament to his skills and with his jackets, knits and shirts flying out of the door almost as quick as we put it out, we are pretty sure you are going to be as big a fan of Oliver Spencer as we are.
Another personal favourite of ours, from the seemingly never ending stream of well heeled brands coming "straight outta Scandinavia" is Libertine Libertine. This is our second season with these fellows and we must say, with each new collection we are more and more impressed plus, the more we buy for the site from Denmark or Sweden, the more excuses for trips over there. Take it from us, Copenhagen = much fun and laughter.
Whilst we are on the subject of Scandinavia, a quick jump across the border to Sweden.......Gothenburg as it happens and a very nice little drop from Nudie Jeans in the form of these bright plaid, padded shirts, classic long sleeve henley and a couple of saddle leather wallets to keep your hard earned cash safe and sound.
More fine outerwear from the masters at Barbour which we must say, has been selling particularly well due to the recent non existent Summer we have been experiencing. Never a bad time to buy yourself one of these jackets though as just like a dog, a Barbour jacket is for life.
Lastly, we have made a final reduction to the spring summer sale stock in store and now you can get a massive 50% off absolutely everything. Get in there quick sharp though as from the end of August, we are removing all of the old season stock from the store and website. Just a bit of general housekeeping. A tidy website is a happy website you see.
That is the lot from us for this week, have a good weekend and we will be in touch with more good stuff next week.
