When looking at the history of particular types of clothing it becomes very apparent that their intended usage was to ensure that the wearers could undertake practical tasks in comfort.  You may be aware that  denim was first  used to produce hard wearing clothes for labourers, but did you know that chinos were originally designed as comfortable clothing for the English and French Military? Chinos were adopted as civilian wear,  making these khaki coloured and comfortably designed trousers very popular. Different clothing brands such as Bellfield Clothing and Original Penguin have adapted the concept of chinos to create an original take on the classic design.

Chinos are now available in many different colours and are made from either 100% cotton twill or a cotton and synthetic mix.  The origin of the chino name is still unsure, as some believe it may be rooted in the American Spanish name chino, meaning toast.  Others think they may be named after China, the country the fabric was originally manufactured. These days  the style of chinos you choose to have depends entirely on the clothing brand you favour the most.  We are going to consider Bellfield Clothing and Original Penguin Clothing’s take on the traditional design.

Bellfield Clothing is a brand that was established in the 1970’s and has managed to maintain a link to its original heritage of allowing people to dress up as individuals while wearing; quality, elegant and highly fashionable clothing.  Bellfield clothing is so tasteful and appreciated that the hottest Hollywood hunks and fashion geeks are embracing the brand.

These Bellfield Tan Uppsala Slim Leg Chinos are made from 100% cotton, sport four pockets and a zip fly.

The Italian’s are very astute and grab a great fashion opportunity when they see it.  Andrea Pensiero and Giuseppe Albarelli are two designers who live up to this accolade.  A chance finding of an old Franklin and Marshall sweatshirt in a second hand clothing shop in London inspired them to found  a sporty clothing brand based on the alumni theme.  At the time the two Italian designers were unaware that the sweatshirt had originated from a world famous American college and set up their brand in the year 2000.  By 2003 Franklin and Marshall College had got wind of the design company and contacted the two designers and worked out a licensing deal.  As a result of the deal Franklin and Marshall College receive a percentage of all American sales but none from the rest of the world.

As it happens, the connection between Franklin and Marshall clothing and Franklin and Marshall clothing has resulted in both institutions being able to promote each other.  The attendance at Franklin and Marshall college has increased since the introduction of the brand and Franklin and Marshall clothing benefit from being able to showcase their new designs to the intended demographic with very little effort.  The Alumni look is sporty, comfortable and very fresh, Franklin and Marshall are particularly appealing because it is the all American look with a subtle Italian twist.  Franklin and Marshall clothing remains loyal to the grey, blue, black and white of the college colours little splashes of red add extra impact to the clothing design.

Franklin and Marshall Jackets and Coats


Our Franklin and Marshall  jacket and coats range incorporates the Franklin and Marshall design with various practical uses.  Jackets range from the understated grey varsity jacket to the waterproof floral zip jacket which is bursting with colour.

Franklin and Marshall Joggers


Franklin and Marshall understand the need to look good and feel comfortable and this understanding of practical fashion is demonstrated in the comfortable yet cool jogging bottoms in the Franklin and Marshall range.

Franklin and Marshall T-Shirts


When you look at a Franklin and Marshall T-shirt there is no mistaking which brand you are looking at.  The clue is not just in the quality but in the colour and the Franklin and Marshall logo that stands out from the front of the t-shirt.

Franklin and Marshall Vests


If you are looking for a cool sporty look then there is nothing like a Franklin and Marshall vest to highlight the body tone you have worked so hard to achieve. These cool vests are loose fitting and have the number 24 emblazoned on the chest.

If you like the Franklin and Marshall selection we have shown you but would like to see the complete range, please follow this link.

When you hear the name Bewley & Ritch you could easily be mistaken to believe that it was long established brand that has been around for decades.  Therefore you would be surprised to hear that Bewley & Ritch was established in 2011 in Manchester.  The company took inspiration from city traders, Ralph Bewley and Eddie Ritch, who are described, ‘partners in crime’, on the company’s website.

Bewley & Ritch knew how to party and party they did. During the swinging sixties they were city traders and had plenty of cash to spend on having a great time and wearing the finest quality clothing they could find.  These two party guys left the city behind and flew off to Monaco where they subsidised their party organising and event planning by trading in textiles.

‘Mature beyond your rivals. Rebelling against conformity. Style is your greatest asset.’

Bewley & Ritch clothing is described as a modern twist to a classic style and perfect for the man about town. Our Bewley & Ritch collection is all about the shirt on your back and turning an ordinary shirt and polo shirt into an extraordinary one.

Bewley & Ritch Short Sleeved Shirts

Bewley & Ritch Long Sleeved Shirts


These Bewley & Ritch long sleeved shirts could be worn on a night out with your mates or dressed up a bit if formal attire is required.  Again decorated with contrasting collars, cuffs and sporting beautiful button detail, these shirts are definitely ones to watch.

The whole world has been wearing Levis Jeans for 162 years so it is hardly surprising that they are the aristocrats of the denim world.  Owning a pair of Levis 501 jeans today has exactly the same fashion value as it did decades and even centuries ago.  Levis Strauss, as you probably already know, was born in Germany and moved to San Francisco where he designed and produced his famous jeans.   He founded Levis Strauss & Co, a wholesale company selling dry products including blue denim, in 1853.

Originally Levis jeans were designed for labourers who required clothing that was robust, strong and won’t fall apart easily.  A tailor called Jacob invented the use of metal rivets in the weakest areas of the trousers such as; pocket corners and the base of the button fly.  Jacob realised his idea was hot (not just because the rivets heated up by the fire) and had great potential.  Jacob realised that in order to patent his rivets idea he would have to team up with a fabric supplier and his obvious choice was Levis Strauss, who provided him with the denim in the first place.  Levis Strauss immediately saw the potential of this partnership and together the patented the rivets with the USA Patent Office and Trademark office awarded them Patent Number  #139,121 on May 20th 1873.

Since May 20th 1873 everybody has fallen in love with Levis jeans and now they are no longer associated with heavy practical jobs.  Royalty, celebrities and the man on the street now wear these iconic blue jeans.  Levis Jeans are so versatile you can either dress them up or dress them down depending on the occasion in which you are wearing them.

Levis 501

levi 501

 Levis 501 jeans are probably the most well known name and number a pair of denim trousers could have.  Levis 501 are available in a variety of different cuts and washes so that you can choose a thread styled to suit your body shape and life style.  The Levis light broken 501 regular fit jeans   are probably the style we are most familiar with.  These straight legged jeans comes with button fly, riveted pockets, a straight leg fit and of course the ever so famous branded label to the back waistband.



Levi 501 Different Fittings

Levis 501 jeans are available in a range of different fittings and styles; Levis 501 Blue Customised Bristol Tapered Fit , Dalston Jeans and Liverano Jeans are good examples of the versatility of Levis 501 jeans.

Which ever style of Levis Jeans attracts you – remember every time you wear a pair of Levis jeans you are wearing a piece of living history.

Reading about how a brand is formed is often very surprising and shows innovation at its best. Often footwear is inspired by the interests of the designer and observations of the world around them.  Paul Sperry, an avid sea farer and inventor, nearly lost his life due to falling on a slippery deck. He watched as his Spaniel, Prince, move effortlessly across the ice.  He studied his pet’s feet and noticed that there were grooves on the bottom of his paws.  Sperry then carved grooves into rubber sole of his boat shoes and in that moment of enlightenment created the world’s first ever boat shoes.

Since 1935, when the Sperry boat shoe was born, sailors have relied on Sperry to keep them safe. During the second world war, the US War Department named Sperry Top Sider as one of the shoes of the US Navy. In the 1960’s the Kennedy Family sparked a flurry of excitement regarding Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes as they photographed wearing them while on holiday.  Since then Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes have been popular whether you are nautically inclined or not. In 1987 Sperry Top Sider became the official boat shoe during the Ryder Cup showing that how ever fashionable the shoes are they still remain in the heart of the ocean.

Sperry Top Sider Authentic Original 2 Eye Boat Shoes in Brown

If you would consider blue to be a more nautical colour then you could choose these Sperry Top Sider Authentic Original 2 Eye Boat Shoes instead.  They come with exactly the same features as the brown shoe but are navy instead.

Sperry Top Sider Bahama Boat Shoe in Navy/Taupe Canvas


Maybe canvas is a better option for you, these Sperry Top Sider Bahama Boat Shoes include the traditional two eye design and famous rubber soles.  These Sperry Top Sider  boat shoes are constructed of navy canvas at the laces and taupe at the main part of the foot.

Stand out in Spring with some statement stripes! Try saying that 5 times fast. The stripe is making a big comeback this season and lucky for you we’re ahead of the trend. Stripes are always somewhere to be seen whether it’s on the casual side of our wardrobe or on the formal side but be prepared to see much more of them soon.

As always, don’t go overboard and deck yourself out head to toe (boxers included) in stripes. The one key piece matched with something plain will have you looking smart! Also, bear in mind that a horizontal stripe will give you a broader appearance and a vertical stripe draws the eye up and down giving the illusion of extra height. Have a look what’s on offer at Stand-Out below.
