NEED TO KNOW:
THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE
September is upon us, the month where we leave summer behind and head into autumn. But don’t be sad that the sun
is leaving us, as a new season means new style, such as tracksuits and layered coats. Need more?
Well there’s also a pulled pork burger too…
1. BRAND FOCUS – YOUR OWN
You know you’re going to be a big deal when stars such as Idris Elba and Professor Green rock up at your launch event. Your Own create retro staples such as track jackets and varsity sweatshirts, great transitional pieces as we head into autumn/winter.
2. TOPMAN BURGER
Pulled pork, hash browns and coleslaw in a burger? WE LOVE YOU MEAT GODS. Topman has teamed up with London’s Psychic Burger (currently at Islington’s Old Queen’s Head) to create the Dandy Porker, which is on their specials board for 2 weeks from September 11th.
3. JERSEY BLAZERS
Stuck between dressing smart or casual on a night out? Well, why not both? The jersey blazer is the ideal go-between jacket for when you don’t know what the weekend might bring, and goes great with skinny jeans and a plain tee as well as trousers and a shirt.
4. SELECTED HOMME – GREASER
Channel your inner rebel with Scandinavian brand Selected Homme, as they’ve just released their new Greaser collection full of varsity jackets, leather jackets and cropped jeans. All you need now is a motorcycle and flip comb.
5. TMD AW14
If you’re looking for something unique and in limited supply, then Topman Design is for you. Our autumn/winter collection is inspired by Northern dock workers and consists of oversize double breasted coats and chunky roll necks.
TOPMAN DESIGN COMING SOON
6. COORDINATING TRACKSUITS
The ‘90s Manchester Britpop era uniform is finally making a comeback. After years of being forgotten, the tracksuit is now bigger than ever thanks to coordinating prints. You can dig through your dad’s old clothes and hope to come across a retro treasure, or you can invest in one of our new branded styles.
6. DOUBLE LAYERED JACKETS + COATS
Before you know it we’ll have snow (but most likely rain) up to our hips and be stuffing our faces with turkey sandwiches. Our wrapping up solution for the new season is double layering, such as placing denim jackets under parkas. Staying warm never looked so good.
8. THE VINES RETURN
The vines are BACK after years of hibernation. You may remember the Australian band’s chaotic riffs and piercing vocals from the early 2000s in tracks such as ‘Get Free’ and ‘Ride With Me’, but from September 2nd you can listen to their new record ‘Wicked Nature’. Nostalgia at its best.
9. GEOMETRIC PRINT TOPS
Some say mixing both style and comfort is impossible. We say those people are wrong. Add some texture to your look with neoprene, it’s addictively touchable and gives off a luxurious streetwear feel.
10. FINAL SERIES OF BOARDWALK EMPIRE
The HBO drama chronicling the highs and lows of politician turned gangster Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) in a corrupt Atlantic City is coming to an end. The fantastic soundtrack, the compelling script and the authentic vintage tailoring are just a few of the reasons to tune in.
