No matter how much I ramble on about “new brands” or current looks, they’ve all come from one thing…the past. And what better than nearly identical copies of old stock.


If any one reads this page regularly you will know that iv talked about brands like folk, albam and heritage research on more than one occasion but I think its time to go back to basic, football, nightclubs, drink and proper clobber! I love autumn weekends full of football, this means by 6pm I’m usually cabbaged so I need to keep everything on me less I’m just going to loose it, this months pay check spending spree came thanks to eBay, the greatest shop in the history of the world, a few months back I got a GABICCI shirt with the coolest neck line iv ever owned, it was from the “from the firm range”, I don’t care what anyone says, the clobber is second to non. The shirts two peaks of the collar are tied together with a gold metal pin with a chain hanging down and the material is an ideal gage for all day cold sessions as its thick enough to keep you warm but too thick to be worn under a cardigan so I had a brain wave of putting a thin roll neck underneath from the gabicci 1973 range which turned the shirt into a jacket and I lasted a full day at a Darlo (don’t worry I’m all about the mags, me ma’s godson holds the 24 shirt) match and the trip back into toon without complaining about the cold once. I know that sometimes it can be a bit of a no go for someone that’s against looking like something from a nick love film to wear clothes that are used by them so I recommend checking out their official website at for some modern day ideas on how to match the clothes together on a modern catwalk. Also on my usual rant of buying local have a nice little sale selection of shirts all under 35 quid.


FILA… One of the first labels to get me hooked, unfortunately enough I was a child of the 90s so the JD sports clobber wasn’t the greatest unless you loved baggy arms and threads hanging out all over the place, thankfully I was lucky enough to fall in love with Armani jr at the same time as spending me grandparents cash at JD’s cos if not the Fila I used to own is enough to make me never want to wear any clothes again, high end is a full different story, it comes in a few different forms VINTAGE, WHITE LINE, CLUB & GOLD. For a quick hit explanation, FILA VINTAGE consists of the “match day” range, GOLD clobbers ideal for a night out, cardigans and rolls, WHITE LINE is 80’s sportswear and CLUB for this season at least seems to be “club house” wear i.e. what you’d wear after you’ve been showered and as its winter its gone for the good old ski  range.


This label was never one of my most loved, I think it stems from all my teachers wearing the flat front trousers, whilst I was rocking out the Armani jr’s so no matter which dressers wore them in the past it’s always going to be a step down, then I got a bit older and realised its not what you wear its how you wear it, after getting a few pairs for 20 quid each off iv managed to do a bit tweaking and started to enjoy wearing them out, even the heavy canvas flat fronters worn by the dreaded R.E teacher. Theirs a lot more to FARAH then trousers though, the knitwear’s of a good standard at really good price points and the slim fitting short sleeve shirts actually beat the Fred Perry’s, my favourite items of this seasons collections are all available from navy chinos £60,  Lloyd polo shirt £45, the wilding jumper £69.99 and my favourite the handury coat £115, the nicest Mac iv had in a long while, similar to the fit of a summer Lyle one.


Get shopping lads and enjoy the greatest season for wearing clobber.
