The set for the shoot took the shape of a British seaside beach with a white beach hut as the back drop and props such as wooden crates, a deck chair, sand, pebbles and an old road bike.
The prop we used for our April showers feature was sent to us by the friendly chaps at London Undercover the London-based umbrella specialist. Our particular umbrella was the Sherlock which features a beech wood shaft and bamboo handle.
The new images will be live on our website very soon!
“Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough” (Charles Dudley Warner 1829 – 1900).
There is an art to dressing that extends beyond simply seeing and buying. Good clothes become family; they mix together, new with old. They develop a personality, individually and collectively, with no discernable beginning or end and finally they are greater than the sum of the parts.
A good brand will always express your personality, not its own - no names needed.
True to our original values, the Racing Green Spring / Summer men’s collection encompasses that feeling. Individually well thought out pieces come together to complete a perfect wardrobe. You add new garments, build a personal collection of favorite items, that feel more at home the more you wear them. Each piece is classic enough to keep, but thoughtfully cut and finished, so the personality is always contemporary.
The range cuts so many different ways that what results is just the right amount of everything - a wardrobe of clothes that work as your own personal collection.

Classic Engineers jackets go back many years and have a long tradition of engineering students wearing them to show pride in the faculty. The jackets would come in different colours to show which faculty they belonged to and patches could be earned and then sewn onto them. In recent years, it’s a style of garment you’d expect to see on the back of a cobbler, carpenter or an artisan baker.
Our work jacket is 100% cotton and a modernised workwear classic. It comes in Sand and Charcoal and is robustly constructed, really comfortable and has the authentic functional details with a lightweight checked lining. Made from a washed down pigment dyed canvas material, the aged look of this jacket will continue to improve as it moulds to your shape. It sits really well with our casual shirts. Also wear with our reverse printed tee or nep stripe tee for a dressed down look.
This season we have introduced a summer parka in navy and sand into our outerwear casual jackets collection. The fabric has a light wax style coating that will soften as you wear it, but the crisp cotton material keeps its contemporary feel.
The word parka is derived from the Nenets language and in the Aleutian Islands the word simply means “animal skin”. It first entered the English written record in 1625.
In early history a parka was a type of heavy jacket with a hood, often lined with fur, so as to protect the face from a combination of freezing temperatures and wind. This kind of garment originally made from caribou or seal was invented by the Eskimos of the Arctic region, who needed clothing that would protect them from wind chill and wetness while hunting and kayaking.
In 1951 the fishtail parka was introduced and began life in service to the US army. However, in 1960’s Britain the Fishtail Parka took on a whole new life and came to symbolise an entire era and lifestyle (Mod). The rise of the parka lay in its practicality, cheapness and availability. The army surplus coat was ideal for beating the elements either on a scooter, or on the way to a club. Its place in history was assured by the newspaper pictures of Mods during the Bank Holiday riots.
Nowadays the army’s reject supplies are rarely seen and more fitted options are readily available in terms of raincoats, jackets and overcoats which vaguely resemble the traditional parka. Our rendition is a lightweight, longer line summer parka jacket with a hood. It has adjustable drawcords at the hood and waist, a zip pocket at the chest and bigger pockets lower down. This jacket adds that something special to your wardrobe.
