New stock is coming in thick and fast. As well as shoes from Grenson, socks from Burlington and wallets from Il Bussetto, we have new collections in from Our Legacy, Woolrich, Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Topo Designs. Don’t worry, it’s not all woollen jackets and scarves, there are lighter pieces such as tees, shirts and blazers to make that transition into autumn slightly more bearable.
To give you a little taste of what’s in store and online we have compiled a few looks using some of our favourite pieces. As usual we really like the suiting from Our Legacy and the casual Americana of Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Woolrich. Topo Designs are a new brand to us here at Peggs & son but we love their functional approach to bags. The looks feature plenty of textured fabrics, darker colours and interesting layering possibilities. Most importantly they can withstand the unpredictable British weather we have to endure at this time of the year.
The guys from Sweden continue to do what they do best: clean, simple styles that have a timeless feel to them. On show here is the amazing three button rolling blazer. Although now seems like the worst time to talk about items made from wool, in a few weeks time this stunning blazer will come into its own. It is paired with the lively Jacquard Dots tee which utilises pattern to great effect. The rest of the collection features printed shirts, chunky sweats, versatile coats and formal trousers. Pop by the shop to see the garments in the flesh.
The guys over at the LVC department of Levi’s like to look back through their illustrious archives and recreate classic garments. This results in some stunning vintage pieces such as this 1960s Striped Tee. Inspired by Motown’s musical revolution and constructed using 100% Portuguese cotton, the tee is soft to the touch and comes in an orange, black and white colourway. The horizontal striped pattern is reminiscent of a musical score, a nod to its heritage. The rest of the collection features classic sportswear sweats and some amazing 501’s from various periods that stay true to the original designs.
Topo bags are created by people who live and breathe the great outdoors. Coming from the Rocky Mountains in the west of the USA, the label was born out of the need for rugged and robust gear. This part of America is famed for its wilderness and Topo Designs bags utilise this amazing landscape for inspiration and the bags they create are designed for people who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as fishing, skiing, hiking, climbing, biking and just plain old travelling. The bags are simple, beautiful and, most importantly, functional. Because the bags are created by genuine enthusiasts they are to the highest specifications.
Woolrich are one of the oldest clothing labels in America and have been producing workwear for well over 180 years. Their dedication to creating quality clothing is clear to see in their new collection which features super soft but light weight sweaters made from premium Geelong wool alongside lightweight printed shirts. It is, however, the Felted jacket in camo that has got us all hot and bothered here at Peggs & son. We love the camo print and fit which is perfect for remaining undetected yet smart in the great outdoors.
