Sartorial style and literature have always made for a good relationship; from the salubrious elegance and decadence of Jay in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal classic The Great Gatsby to the straight-leg, high rolled denim and plain white tees favoured by Dean Moriarty in the Kerouac epic On The Road, the clothes on the characters backs are pivotal to the words which accompany the narrative.

The bond between books and fashion has just become a little tighter thanks to Penguin and the editors of men’s fashion magazine Fantastic Man who have joined forces to produce Buttoned Up, a compact 112-page homage to the recent trend of hip East End inhabitants and their fully fastened shirts.

Part of the recent series dedicated to 125 years of the London Underground, this great little read combines essays, interviews and photos of well-attired gents in their Sunday best, drawn together in the name of contemporary sartorial elegance to give us the opportunity to bring our wardrobe into the modern world while maintaining the tact and decorum associated with any self-discerning gent.

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.

Our Legacy aw13 at Peggs & son

Our Legacy


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.

LVC aw13 at Peggs & son


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 Designs aw13 at Peggs & son

Topo 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.



Ah, the summer months: lying by turquoise blue seas, sunning yourself under cloudless skies, sipping on some exotic beverage that looks like it was concocted in some far off land. It all sounds so idyllic… until it’s ruined by some beast of a fella’ yelling at his kids while marauding about – like the Full Metal Jacket drill sergeant – in some obscene, ill-fitting attire splayed with (un)witty slogans, shorts that only a surfer should wear and cumbersome shoes that look like hand-me-downs from a distant relative.

It never fails to amaze us here at Peggs & son just how wrong some men get their holiday attire when really it’s all about keeping it clean and simple. A good Sunspel, Oliver Spencer or Armor Lux t-shirt, a pair of Levis Made & Crafted, or Woolrich tailored shorts and a comfortable pair of Mr. Hare loafers, Eastland Deck Shoes or Our Legacy pumps and you’re set to at least look like you could be mixing with the Rat Pack on the French Riviera.

Winter Gloves

For those people who wander down the winter streets rubbing there hands together and blowing loud sharp breaths into cold palms, we’ve got a solution for you…there called gloves. And while we may not be high on quantity, we certainly know a thing or two about quality.

From the Norse Project x Hestra collaboration, the classic herringbone check Woolrich glove (our personal favourite) and the D.S. Dundee leather stitch glove, we really do know how to sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to keeping your hands warm and choosing the appropriate gloves.

The History of Woolrich

It’s always good to find some information online that provides you with exactly what you are looking for. Here is a good example of that, a great article providing an insight into Woolrich Inc., highlighting how the company started as a single working mill in 1830 through to some of their latest groundbreaking achievements.

Woolrich John Rich & Bro’s AW12 (First Delivery)

Woolrich have been producing quality outdoor clothing for over 180 years. The company was founded by John Rich in Plum Run; Pennsylvania in 1830 after the immigrant from England built his first Woolen Mill.

Rich’s success in trading with local businesses and camps was a great success that by 1845 he had built a new mill a couple of miles up the road next to Chatham Run which provided even greater business potential. This mill still stands today and has survived the Civil War, the Great Depression, two world wars and the Cold War.

Woolrich was contracted by the government to outfit Admiral Byrd’s expedition to Antarctica in 1939, 1940, and 1941.

The first part of the AW12 collection from Woolrich will be available online here later this week.
