Big is better, Big is bigger.
...And with a cruel flick of nature's branch we arrive in Autumn's gaze. Those native to the north are aware that the wind hits differently coming off the Tyne. There's only one way to answer it, big coats man!
We're throwing our weight behind some of the best layers for the season. Quilted, reliable and heavyweight with some really nasty pieces of work amongst these winter warriors.
Survival guaranteed with Edwin's ode to Japanese surplus thrifting. Cut in a patchwork asymmetrical collection of sateen fabric, and completed with a contrasting safety orange diamond quilt. Four balloon pockets and two lateral gusseted pockets add an air of utility.
Have the outerlayers but lack the innards? Warm your best weather proofed outer with the Pedro Bay Vest, a workwear gilet that brings the best of the woodsman to everyone. Brushed flannel finish to the outer, with serious warming properties to the quilt liner. Being practical never looked so good.
All work and no play make Union a bunch of dull boys and girls, and Carhartt's Arcan Jacket is giving us serious 'Here's Johnny' vibes in it's offroad iteration. This is a classic workwear cut that includes some of the best features of other Carhartt Classics. Wack a piece of knitwear under this for a guaranteed winner.
Speaking of knitwear... its unparalleled sensory sophistication from Edwin in the form of the Hiji mohair cardigan. Yarned with the finest of Italian Yarn and cut in an oversized 'Slouchy' cut, the famed Christmas Cardi might be solved already with months to spare.
