The English Sweatshirt.

We have just taken delivery of our first sweatshirt piece which we are pretty excited about. We have started with the classic zip thru hoody, perfect for these blustery days under our wind jammer zipping through the streets on our bikes.

Two more styles are due in, for the beginning of April. The classic Crew sweatshirt and a pullover hoody with a little twist. This new style is going quick but we are knitting more sweatshirt fabric on some crazy knitting machines (not the ones pictured but these did look great!)

Albam - Shirts Made in England. Coming September!

We have always been on the lookout for an English shirt maker to work with us on some of our shirts. Our existing shirts are made for us by a great factory in Portugal, but there has just been something about the English shirt that we wanted in the range. It should be easy to find but even though we have the famed Jermyn Street the shirtmakers have been squeezed out for cut price shirts.

Recently we got a tip off from a customer about a small factory that makes a great shirt. 10 minutes later a call was made and an appointment booked in to go through what we want to do.

We are really excited at this new development, we will still be working with our Portugese friends as they have supported us since our beginning and took a chance with us but we think there is always room for an English shirt and possibly an American shirt to add a little variation. Watch this space but the English shirt should land September time.

An English cuppa

Depending on where we go depends on the type of tea we get. Always something to look forward to especially when the flag mugs come out!

The Fishermans Cagoule

More cagoules arrived last week, now these have been long awaited and are now have come in only to disappear quicker than they came through the door. Tomorrow (Monday) a new order is going back in to remake for those who are still waiting for a new one or to get an extra colourway. There will be some more Khaki and then we might be calling it a day on these. As some of you know there are many more styles we are trying to get out! Let us know as soon as possible for your sizes and we can get these made up for you and on your backs.
