After some new trainers for the summer? Well you’re in luck as the new collection of Nike summer footwear has landed here at Peggs & son. Featuring styles old and new, there is something to cater for all tastes. First up is the bold Roshe Run featuring, for the first time, Flyknit technology on the upper. This lightweight but robust fabric has been seen on various Nike silhouettes in the past, but for SS15, the Roshe Run gets the Flyknit treatment in a bold volt colourway. Mixing this with a Natural Motion sole unit has resulted in a eye catching but supremely comfortable trainer.

Next up we have the iconic Air Stab. Getting its first reissue since 2008, this version comes in the classic OG emerald colourway. Mixing lightweight mesh and soft suede, the upper has a retro look that is highly breathable and perfect for keeping feet cool on warm days. The robust sole unit features the distinctive detailing around the visible air bubble. Bizarrely linked with a series of stabbings in London, the name of the shoe is actually a shortening of the word stability, thanks to the reinforced heel panels that provide both comfort and support.

Finally we have perhaps the ultimate summer shoe from Nike, the Tennis Classic. A simple court shoe, it has been worn by many of the tennis greats with John McEnroe being a particularly big fan of the style. This version has been give the premium treatment with a supple leather upper and perforated swoosh detailing. In store we have two colourways, black and white, both featuring tonal laces and branded heels. The Tennis Classic PRM is a versatile shoe that works equally well with jeans, chinos or shorts for a laid back, casual summer look.

ACRONYM AT PEGGS & SON.

Acronym at Peggs & son.

Based in Berlin, Acronym is a label at the pioneering forefront of outerwear design. Blending the latest advances in fabric technology with an unrivalled approach to garment design, the clothing they produce is unique, futuristic, and perfect for protecting you from the elements. 

Working closely with the team at GORE-TEX, the jackets they produce, such as the J27-GT, are completely wind and waterproof as well as being highly breathable thanks to the microfibre technology and taped seam construction. However, this doesn’t get in the way of fit thanks to the ergonomic panelled construction that allows for unrestricted movement.

Not only do they use the latest materials, it is their unwavering attention to detail that really sets Acronym apart. On the sleeve of each jacket is a laminated zipper which reveals a small internal pocket. This can be accessed on the inside of the cuff allowing for easy retrieval of items such as phones that are kept close to hand. Not only this, but the zippers feature a small hinge to hold them securely in place. Another touch are the small magnetic strips located near the collar that headphones can be attached to when not in use.

The label are innovators, doing what few other brands can even dream of. We are extremely happy to have Acronym at Peggs & son as we are only one of only a handful of stores in the world to stock the label.

SHOES LIKE POTTERY

Shoes Like Pottery at Peggs & son.

Hailing from Japan, Shoes Like Pottery craft exceptionally high quality canvas trainers. These are ideal for those who like their summer footwear understated, timeless and comfortable. With no shortage of low top styles to choose from, Shoes Like Pottery raise the standard with both their attention to detail and build quality.

At first the name of the brand seems slightly unusual. However it has been derived from the construction process that each shoe undergoes. Much like pottery, each shoe is placed in a kiln where, under extreme temperatures, they undergo a unique vulcanisation process that makes them more durable and flexible. The Japanese call this process ka-ryu.

Each of the shoes we have here in store have been made by hand in Kurume, Japan and they all feature a blue stamp near the heel that bears the symbol of the lucky hammer. In Japanese folklore this is known as uchide no kozuchi and it is said that by swinging this lucky hammer, all of the holder’s wishes will come true. If your wish is to have a simple, but perfectly executed canvas trainer, then you’re in luck.

Here in store we have four colourways including blue, white, black and ecru. Each one features a textured canvas upper, a bold blue sole unit and rubber toe cap. For clean, minimal and understated style, look no further than the handcrafted footwear of Shoes Like Pottery.

SUMMER FOOTWEAR AT PEGGS & SON.

Summer shoes at Peggs & son.

Over the past few days it really seems like we have turned the corner from winter into spring. We can finally start about putting those down filled coats and leather boots away, at least for the next six or seven months. Our attention now turns to lighter weight shirts, shorts and of course trainers.

Here at Peggs & son, we’re already in the mood for the warmer weather and have a great selection of spring appropriate footwear. Both the Jack Purcell and Chuck Taylor models from Converse perfectly suit long summer days with their slimmed down silhouettes, classic detailing and simple colourways.

For an added touch of luxury, look no further than the offerings of Japanese label Shoes Like Pottery. By placing their shoes in kilns, the soles undergo a vulcanisation process to make them flexible, stronger and more durable. Coming in a range of four colourways, the canvas upper has been kept clean with a rubber toe cap finishing off each pair.

PEGGS X EDWIN PARTY

Peggs x Edwin partyLast Tuesday, we hosted a party with Edwin jeans to celebrate 10 years of working together. A lot has changed in the past decade, but Edwin’s dedication to quality denim and our vision of serving the finest clothing to the discerning people of Brighton has never wavered.

We teamed up with MEATliquor for an evening of beers, burgers and indigo. We had a great night and must thank everyone who managed to make it down. But the party isn’t over yet, because we want to see your pictures of the evening. As if you needed any more of an excuse to share your photos, we will choose one lucky winner who will walk away with a new pair of Edwin ED-55 jeans. All you have to do is post them to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #PeggsEdwin10.

To get you in the mood, we have posted a number of photos ourselves that we’re taken by our good friend James Hole. Only a small selection are featured here, but you can head over to our Facebook page where we have created an album. Once again, thanks to everyone who came and Edwin and MEATliquor for making it an evening to remember.

STONE ISLAND SHADOW PROJECT

Stone Island Shadow Project at Peggs & son.

Once again we are very happy to have the latest collection from Stone Island Shadow Project available online and in store. Taking cues from Stone Island’s distinct aesthetic, this latest selection of clothing blends classic cuts with revolutionary construction techniques to create something entirely new.

All manufacturing takes place in Italy to ensure the exacting standards of head designer Erollson Hugh are rigidly adhered to and it is this sharp tailoring and unwavering quality that really sets the Shadow Project collection apart. A more lively colour palette features for the warmer weather, blending blues and corals with the obligatory black.

Hugh, who also designs his own range, Acronym, is one of the most progressive designers around and a collaboration with Stone Island is a perfect marriage. His preference for using bold new materials such as hollowcore nylon adds a technical feel to the collection but also makes the clothing lightweight, breathable and ideal for the summer months.

The cuts of the jackets and sweaters take into account the motion of the body with articulated sleeves aiding freedom movement whilst still retaining a trim fit that the label has been renowned for. The SS15 collection manages to blend thoughtful design, pioneering new materials and modern cuts into a highly considered package that still remains true to the Stone Island ethos.

CONVERSE JACK PURCELL COLLECTION

SISPJackPurcell-9932

Jack Purcell was one of the greatest Badminton players of all time. Born in Ontario, Canada in 1903, he quickly rose through the ranks and became world champion in 1932 and remained unbeaten until his retirement from the game in 1945. This incredible record has made him one of the most respected players the game has ever seen.

In 1935 Purcell created a rubberised canvas trainer for the B.F. Goodrich company in Canada. This was designed to offer badminton players more comfort, support and grip when on the court. Realising he was on to a good thing, Converse purchased the trademark to the shoe in the 1970s and since that moment the Jack Purcell has been considered one of the all time classic canvas trainers.

SISPJackPurcell-9930

This reissue from Converse has been given the premium treatment and still retains the iconic look of the original. Based around a simple canvas upper, the Jack Purcell features a low silhouette that is ideal for the warmer weather. In store we have two models, the simple white version and the black with contrast stitching and laces.

The vulcanised rubber sole unit is robust, durable and more than tough enough to stand up to the rigour of a fast paced game of badminton. Adding to the vintage feel is the instantly recognisable and oft copied ‘smile’ detailing on the rubber toecap. Subtle branding also features on the tongue and heel and completing matters is a comfortable and well ventilated insole.

SISPJackPurcell-9920

The Jack Purcell is one of the lesser known shoes from the Converse stable but it offers a great alternative to the Chuck Taylor. More refined in its appearance, it nails that casual look perfectly. It is also incredibly versatile, working with shorts, tailored chinos or jeans for all on or off court action.

Take a look at the whole Converse collection, including both the Jack Purcell and 1970 Chuck Taylor models, over on our website.

NIKE ACG AIR WILDWOOD PRM QS

Nike Air Wildwood ACG at Peggs & son.

Every now and again Nike like to take a look back through their illustrious back catalogue and recreate a gem from years gone by. Whether it be a classic tennis shoe from the 70s or a runner from the 90s, Nike always do a great job of picking an iconic style and giving it a modern makeover.

This time is no different as they have chosen the highly sought after and much respected Air Wildwood. Part of their ACG range (All Condition Gear), the Wildwood was designed more for the great outdoors and those who enjoyed trail running. Famed for its slightly larger silhouette, robust construction and durable sole, Nike have given it the premium treatment and a QuickStrike release just in time for the wet winter weather.

This version comes with a full leather upper in a mixture of olive green and black panelling. The interior is constructed using synthetic materials to draw moisture away from the skin and aid with ventilation. The subtly branded sole unit also showcases the built up rear and toe, both designed to offer more protection to the leather upper from mud and water. It is the simple colour pallet, minimal branding and retro design that really make this shoe a winter winner.

The Nike Air Wildwood ACG PRM QS is now available in store and over on our website.

CANADA GOOSE JACKETS

Canada Goose jackets at Peggs & son.

When winter coats are mentioned, large, hooded, down filled numbers often spring to mind. Their insulating properties and water resistant outer shells are the perfect solution to a wet and cold British winter. One brand synonymous with the down filled style is Canada Goose who somewhat unsurprisingly hail from Canada. 

The label has been crafting exceptional outerwear since 1957 and part of the reason for their continued success is due to the quality of the down used in their jackets. Blending both goose and duck down clusters, Canada Goose use different combinations for each of their coats in order to strike the right balance between warmth, comfort and manoeuvrability.

The three styles we have in store, the Chateau jacket, the Chilliwack bomber and the Freestyle vest, all offer incredible levels of insulation to stave off the chilling effects of winter. The long body and premium goose down fill makes the Chateau jacket capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -25°C which is more than enough for even the coldest of January nights here in the UK.

For those who don’t need that level of protection, the Chilliwack and Freestyle are lighter in weight with slimmer cuts. Still filled with the finest down clusters, they offer more versatility and expand on the level of choice in the Canada Goose range.

We particularly like the Freestyle vest in varying bold colourways. Based around a simple gilet style, the sleeveless design is perfect for throwing on over a knit or sweater. The Freestyle is also very practical with a two way zip closure, popper fastened storm flap, more length on the back to offer increased protection and fully lined hand warmer pockets.

What sets Canada Goose apart from other outerwear manufacturers is their commitment to quality. Not only do they pay incredible amounts of attention to the cut and function of their jackets, the down fill they use is superior to any other brand. Sourcing the finest materials ensures that the wearer stays as warm as possible, no matter what the weather.

You can take a look at the whole Canada Goose collection, including hats and gloves, either in store or over on our website. Selected lines are also available in our winter SALE.
