A little short notice, but if you are able to get to the John Smedley factory shop or you happen to be in London, the company is having a clearout of slight seconds and end of range items. There are always classic knitwear bargains to be had, so it is […]

The remaining members of The Who must be short of some Christmas spending money – launching an online subscription service for the band’s output. For $50 (around £25), you get to become a ‘Wholigan’, giving you exclusive access to content, priority booking for gigs, discounted merchandise and access to blogs […]

Might be worth nipping into your local Fred Perry shop this week, as the mid season sale has started and there’s a few interesting items there at markdown prices. The bulk of the stock is still full price, but I noticed that the Italian-made knitted three-button polo shirts (with embroidered […]
