Ten month ago we already wrote about Howlin By Morrison.

It's now one month that we have received the products of Howlin By Morrison and they're just perfect !

There's one item I'm quite "fan of" is the knited tie.
Usually I'm not wearing ties but when I saw the ones from Howlin By Morrison, I was quite surprise !
Wearing one of them doesn't gives you that "strict" look but a nice preppy/relax look !

I'm a Fan !!!!!



The flat cap is a rounded men's cap with a small stiff brim in front. Cloths used to make the cap range from Original Wool, tweed (most common) to cotton driving caps for summer wear, sometimes featuring air vents. Less common materials may include leather, but they are still very popular today especially in Northeastern and midwest cities where there is a strong Irish and Scottish presence. Cord flat caps are also worn in various colors.

The inside of the cap is usually lined with silk for comfort and warmth. The majority of these caps may be made in China because they are about 1/2 the cost of those made in America, but they are still made very well.

Today with the revival of the flat caps, there's a large offer on the market coming out from brands like Goorin Bros., Kangol, Stetson and others......

We have opted for Brixton and Dockers flat caps.Brixton made great flat caps (although made in China) and Dockers bring a good quality/value (as usual....).From February 2011 we will also carry a British brand of flat caps wich have an experience of more than 100 years.......



The Harrington jacket is a lightweight waist-length jacket, made of cotton, polyester, wool or suede — usually with traditionally Fraser tartan or check-patterned lining.

The first Harrington-style jackets were made by British clothing company Baracuta in the 1930s.

This style of jacket earned the nickname Harrington because it was worn by the character Rodney Harrington (played by Ryan O'Neal) in the 1960s prime time Peyton Place.

Similar to the 1950s United States Ivy League look, the jacket became fashionable in the United Kingdom in the 1960s among mods and skinheads. They again became popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s with skinhead and mod revivalists, as well as with scooterboys.

We have choosen the model produce by Dockers.

The Dockers Harrington Jacket have this classic Harrington style.
The winter version is lightly padded and fully lined, and as usual with Dockers, a perfect fit and great quality/value.



I remember when I was a kid (long time ago) always looking at those jackets with leather shoulder yoke my Father's American Friends were wearing.

I was 7 years old and I had no clue about what was a "brand" !

Later on, in the late 80's, a French brand "Chevignon" took inspiration of this model to creat their "Togs" jacket.

I was amazed to find back the jacket I've always wanted to have.

When I found out about the existence of Penfield, I was a bit frustrated not having bought "The Original" one.

With the revival of the Authentics and Originals Brands, I took my revenge
and bought a Penfield Stapleton jacket.

Instead of buying it in a regular color, I went for tweed version wich give her a kind of outdoor/elegant look.

Of course, the quality is perfect and the details are great.
I'm living in Belgium (where it's always cold and grey weather) and that's the kind of jacket I can use almost for 8 month per year !
