Posted by 2

Last weekend saw us play host to the chaps from Dukes Cupboard. The vintage designer experts held a weekend Pop-up. They took a break from their normal Soho spot to bless Brick Lane with some gems. After the first days trading, we welcomed Dukes and co in with some drinks in store. We want to thank the strong turnout of friends and customers it was a pleasure to see so many friendly faces. Of course, we can't forget Hop House 13 & Captain Morgans for keeping the drinks flowing for the evening. With some great retro & vintage sportswear on...

Oliver Spencer AW16 - Music To Our Ears

Posted by 2

The Inspiration: Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely places. The Oliver Spencer AW16 collection found it in the form of Ginger Baker. Ginger Baker was the drummer and one of  the founding members the band Cream. Having been known primarily for his role in music, Ginger Baker was a man of great sartorial pedigree. Baker often led the way for British counter-culture fashion. While America had Easy Rider & Woodstock we had the likes of Baker. The Oliver Spencer AW16 collection is inspired in particular by Baker's trip to Africa. Ginger Baker's trip led him to work with the...

In celebration of all things stripy we've done a round up of some our season favourites. Without further a do here...

SEVERAL; SS17 at London Collections

Posted by 2

The Several SS17 show at London Collection Mens was another nod to times gone by. Set in a yellow and white cafe, the show offered a retro palette even Wes Anderson would envy. The brands attention to detail did not fall short at the clothing. Vintage magazines and papers alongside toast on the table all served as parts of the Several time machine. Furthermore the clothing featured was just as much a tip of the hat to Britain of post war times. Utilitarian work wear teamed with the aspirational trench coat & sunglasses blended industrial styles of the early 20th...

Attention To Detail: The Work Jacket

For any of you with a keen eye you might have noticed we are partial to a work Jacket at Number Six.

The History: Originating in France, the work jacket was a staple of the French countryside. The most well known form of the work jacket is the "Bleu de Travail" jacket, this is the iconic jacket with heavy indigo dye. This jacket became prominent in France and throughout...
