NEW NIKE RELEASES

Peggs & son, Nike Air Max Lunar90

Already this season we have seen the arrival of four brand new pairs of trainers from sportswear giants, Nike. Continuing to push forward with new technologies and bold colourways, the latest set of releases feature iconic silhouettes such as the Air Max1, 90, 93 and 180. Nike have managed to incorporate their different sole systems into one shoe and for the Air Max Lunar1 and Lunar90 (as shown above), the Air technology combines with Lunarlon soles to create incredibly comfortable trainers.

Peggs & son, Nike Air Max Lunar1

Sticking with the OG colourway, Nike have given the Air Max1 a 2014 makeover that still retains the iconic looks of the original model. The upper has been crafted out of a mixture of red, white and grey mesh panels to aid with breathability and all of these individual sections have been taped together using Nike’s robust Hyperfuse technology.

The combination of two sole units not only gives a fresh look for one of the most famous trainers ever, it also makes them a pleasure to wear. A great interpretation of an all time classic.

Peggs & son, Nike Air Max 180

Originally released in 1992, the Air Max 180 was created by legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. The slimmer shape with a plethora of panels on the main body has resulted in the 180 being one of Nike’s most iconic and beloved silhouettes.

This version benefits from a bold use of pattern and colour to compliment the black nubuck suede and neoprene upper. The waffle rubber sole comes in a lively pattern and works well with the turquoise leather heel patch and crimson swoosh to give an almost retro feel.

Peggs & son, Nike Air Max 93

Nike have taken a step back in time with the release of the Air Max 93 in the original menthol colourway. Released in 1993 and also known as the Air Max 270 thanks to the large air bubble that surrounds the rear of the sole, this was Nike’s test to see how far they could push their Air technology.

This is one of the OG colourways and comes in a simple white, black and menthol green. The main part of the shoe is made from premium leather but black nubuck suede and lightweight mesh are also present. The 93 features an inner neoprene sock to aid with comfort and fit.

 

Many thanks to Jack Stocker for the photography which you can see more of over on his Instagram feed. To check out the rest of the Nike collection, please head on over to our website. We will also be getting in more styles over the season so be sure to check back to take a look at those as well as the new Quick Strike releases coming in September.

FOLK AW14: FIRST LOOK

Peggs & son, Folk

With the new season starting to get underway, we have received the first drop from shop floor favourites, Folk. As much as we love their spring/summer collections, we think it is winter that they truly come into their own. The brand’s laid back but innovative approach has won them many plaudits over the years but they still continue to push forward with inventive ideas season after season.

Peggs & son, Folk

For AW14, a use of rich textures and interesting patterns are subtle enough not to be over the top, but each garment has its own personality and style. It is easy to boil Folk’s design ethos down to merely details, but the clothes themselves are much more than that. It is the choice of fabrics, the relaxed but modern cuts as well as the tiny features that give Folk an undeniable and unique aesthetic.

Peggs & son, Folk

Although it may be almost blasphemous to think about knits and coats at the beginning of July, these collections are full of lighter pieces. Long sleeve tees and shirts bridge the gap between the last lazy days of summer and the arrival of the autumn weather.

To take a look at the whole Folk collection, please head on over to our online store.

HOLLAND ESQUIRE

Peggs & son, Holland Esquire

Holland Esquire make some of the finest suits around and the roots of the company is firmly embedded in classic English tailoring. Created in 2001 by Nick Holland, he still oversees the design process of all the jackets and trousers. Manufacturing is kept to very limited numbers and for this reason his suits are very much sought after, not only for their exclusivity but also for their high level of detailing and expert construction.

Peggs & son, Holland Esquire

So for those occasions when only the smartest will do, look no further than the Trend suit with accompanying trousers. Made from 100% wool, the suit is lightweight, fully lined and features a bit of structure around the shoulders to provide a sharp silhouette. The deep navy colourway gives way to a contrasting interior that is full of bold patterns and colours- a playful twist that has become a signature of Nick Holland’s designs.

CONVERSE ‘STARS AND BARS’ 1970s CHUCK TAYLOR

Peggs & son, Converse Stars and Bars

Converse have once again graced us with another incarnation of their popular 1970s Chuck Taylor Hi-top model. Ever the patriots, the American based brand have decked out their latest canvas trainer in bold stars and stripes with the left and right shoe both having contrast patterns taken from the star-spangled banner.

The Americana influence is very apt, as the shoe itself has become a modern icon within footwear. We like the simplicity and the versatility of Converse trainers and the 1970s Chuck Taylor model brings an added touch of build quality to the much loved design. The sole is thicker and the stitching more durable. Based around a vintage shape, the shoe is slightly wider with a smaller toe-cap, which in our opinion gives the shoe better proportions. If you like your summer footwear to be bold, then this is the trainer for you.

To take a closer look at the trainer, as well as the rest of the Converse collection, please head on over to our online store.

IN FOCUS: APC

Peggs & son, APC

Parisian label APC like to keep things simple. Long, elegant lines, clean, flattering cuts and luxury materials all combine to create clothing that has an air of undeniable Gallic cool. Their consistency over the years has been staggering and they are one of the labels out there today that set trends for others follow. As well as the minimal approach, APC have become famed for the influence of military fashion in their designs and one piece that stands out for us is the A-2 inspired Blouson Redchurch jacket which we have paired above with the Breton striped Gab Rouge T-shirt.

We also love their shirting which is slim fitting and comes in a wide array of colours and prints. These offer a great way to inject a bit of colour and life into formal outfits whilst still retaining a smart look.

SSDD – SAFE AT HOME SS14 COLLECTION

Peggs & son, SSDD

We are happy to have the new collection from Erik Brunetti’s SSDD label now available in store. Blending classic Americana styles with Japanese construction, the range, which has been entitled “Safe At Home”, takes influences from the military as well as vintage sportswear pieces. Often SSDD collections have a slight macabre outlook and for SS14 this theme continues with bold printed t-shirts and the unique Death Bunny bandana print shirt with custom detailing.

Peggs & son, SSDD

A piece we particularly love is the MA-1 inspired In My Hour Of Darkness jacket. Made from lightweight cotton, it has a summer feel with all the traditional bomber jacket details present such as a boxy fit, long arms, flapped hip pockets and short collar. However it is the inclusion of leopard print accents on the shoulders and rose embroidery on the chest that really sets this jacket apart from it’s military heritage.

SUMMER SUITING: ENGINEERED GARMENTS

Peggs & son Summer Suiting Engineered Garments

You don’t always have to have a formal occasion to go to in order to wear a suit, oh no. In fact with the right choice of cut and material, a summer suit can be an incredibly versatile and casual piece of clothing. Here we have the wonderful Baker Jacket from New York’s very own Engineered Garments. Made from cotton, it is completely unlined and unstructured leaving a relaxed and comfortable fit. As with all Engineered Garments clothing, it is a pleasure to wear but our favourite part of the Baker Jacket is the subtle batik pattern that features throughout.

Batik is a method of dying a textile by covering certain parts of the material in a thin layer of wax to create a contrast in colours. This deep blue and black batik offers an intriguing yet minimal pattern. What’s best of all though is that the Baker Jacket comes with matching Cambridge shorts to complete the ultimate smart/casual summer look.
