SPRING LAYERS WITH JAKE FROM OVERDILUTED

We teamed up with our good friend and local menswear blogger Jake Story from Overdiluted to run through some of his favourite spring styles we have here in store. Taking to the streets of Brighton’s Seven Dials area, he chose an array of outfits all with the ever changing weather conditions in mind. Take a look below at his picks and see what he had to say about them:

 

“Initially, there might not seem much difference between my spring style and what I might wear in the winter – apart from the shorts, of course – but a lot of it comes down to the weight of materials. Spring is about as unpredictable as it comes, so it’s important that pieces are lightweight and layered. It’s all about adding up and taking away to keep yourself comfortable, which in my eyes is the art to perfecting your spring wardrobe.

You’ll need weatherproof jackets one day and shorts the next, which is why the Universal Works Bakers Jacket is a great piece: thin enough for a jumper or hoodie underneath and thick enough to do you some favours when things get a little chilly. Equally, both the YMC Deja Vu Trousers and visvim High Water Chinos aren’t as heavy as you might need for the colder months, which means you can comfortably get away with them on warmer days, despite the fact they’re full length. My favourite piece we shot has to be the Engineered Garments Parka in a nice and light poplin cotton that’s ace for the ever-changing conditions.”

SUMMER HOLIDAY: ARTIST RESIDENCE HOTEL

Untitled-2

There’s no summer holiday quite like a British holiday. With the grey skies and cold months all but a distant memory, it’s finally that time of year to crack out the shorts and sandals, drink copious amounts of cold beer and burn some food on the barbecue. Fear not, here in store we have all the clothing you need to accompany these activities.

Over on our Inspirations page we’ve created our holiday planning guides, where you will find our curated selection of packing essentials for all types of vacations. Whether you’re planning a short city break, a heavy festival weekend or a family trip to the beach, we have it all covered. You will find a fine selection of essentials, from the luxury luggage of Globe-Trotter to the quality sunglasses from Sun Buddies.

We always think that to make the most of your holiday, you want the clothing you bring to be both comfortable and versatile. Our featured selection includes tried and tested pieces from Norse Projects, A.P.C., Our Legacy, Sunspel, Officine Generale and Universal Works. Keeping it simple with grooming products, we’ve delved into our range from the likes of Baxter of California, Marvis, Laboratory Perfume and Barbasol.

To get us in the mood, we headed over to the Artist Residence, a small, boutique hotel located just off the seafront in the historic Regency Square. With sea views and an eclectic aesthetic, it is the perfect place to stay for a weekend away here in Brighton. See below for our experience when we headed there earlier this month.

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.

With the days getting longer and the temperature rising, the time has inevitably come to bare those calves that have been kept under wraps for the past eight months. Fortunately we have a huge selection of shorts in store and online to suit all styles and needs. Whether you prefer something casual that finishes below the knee or you like to show off a bit of thigh, we have plenty to choose from.

Below we have set out some of our favourites of the season so far from the likes of Norse Projects, Engineered Garments, Oliver Spencer and more. For something a little more tailored and smart, the offerings from Gant Rugger are perfect. Premium materials and classic fits combine with light summer colours. For those that want something a bit more relaxed, the Austin shorts from Saturdays Surf NYC have been dyed with indigo and come in a lightweight material similar to that of jogging bottoms.

GLOVES, HATS AND SCARVES: OUR PICKS

Gloves, hats and scarves at Peggs & son.From the unmistakable Gallic styles of Armor Lux to the refined Scandinavian simplicity of Norse Projects, we have plenty of insulating accessories to help keep you warm over the coming months. And whilst a good coat and shoe combo can help keep your body and feet warm, gloves, hats and scarves are all equally important. As they say, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

FOLK: The Loyal Friend

It seems an age since we last talked about one of our longest standing, and may we say, best brands, so we thought it was about time we gave FOLK the attention it deserves.

With a fine array of pieces, from the chunky knits to the quintessential quirkiness of knitted pocked shirts that have become an integral part of the Folk DNA, we think you will agree with us once again that the current A/W’12 collection cements Folks reputation as one of the best brands to come out of the British Isles in the past decade.

As well as the chunky knits and shirts there are the classic Blockless tees and Mac, a great choice of shirts and heavy knit cardis.

Time for a scarf

To the guy I saw strolling down the street in shorts and t-shirt yesterday, please pop in to see us because we need to sort out your winter attire; for the rest of you, I’m sure jeans and jumpers are already a staple part of your wardrobe and while we are always happy to help you add to your array of clothing, we know what you need right now is a decent scarf to go with your existing clobber.

If any item of clothing helps to ward off the deep chill of winter and the months of biting cold that lie ahead, look no further than the trusty old scarf. Tie a nice big knot, zip up the jacket, get your head down and venture into the wilds of a British winter.

Be careful not to walk past Peggs & son mind.

Don’t forget your Tee

While you are busy rushing around looking for a new jumper, a new coat, a new hat and scarf combo, it is easy to forget that underneath it all, you still need a decent t-shirt. Yes, we know it doesn’t garner the same attention under all those layers but the humble tee still needs to be a respected part of your wardrobe.

We here at Peggs & son are only too aware of the importance of a great t-shirt and that’s why we have such a fine array; from the stylish Sunspel number, to the HUF, Obey and PAM logo tees and the Norse and Folk classics, it doesn’t matter what you are looking for, we stock it.

Get yourself in store or online now because for all its humble origins, the t-shirt is a pre- requisite come rain or shine.

Folking About

If you’re looking for classic design with an modernistic twist, look no further than the current collection to come out of the Folk studio.

While other brands are heading into Autumn with the traditional darker tones of grey and green, Folk have kept their range bright and breezy with multi-colour heavy knits, sky blue shirts and their quintessential blockless tees in various bright, eclectic colourways.

With a natural emphasis on knitwear – one of the shirts comes with a knitted breast pocket – but retaining a nod towards their usual vibrancy, the new Folk collection will be a welcome addition to any gents wardrobe.
