As a weekly feature we’re starting a “Brands in Focus” spot on the blog. Each week we’ll grab one brand name from the “Add a Fashion Brand” section on the forum and give it a homepage shout on Kitmeout. This week we’re kicking things off with English Laundry. Top notch brand – take a butchers:
English Laundry is the Wickedly Arrogant Line of Elegant yet Street Savvy Men’s Shirts designed by the incredibly charming Christopher Wicks of Manchester England. Mr. Wicks says (tongue in cheek – we think) that Manchester England is the Center of the Universe. We can say that Manchester did give the design world a fabulous gift in the form of Christopher Wicks. His English Laundry brand is a collection of Vintage Inspired shirts unlike any other Mens Line. “Dead Smart” as Christopher calls the line – the whole concept behind English Laundry is Elegance, ARROGANGE and totally English! Each shirt is hand tailored and hand laundered for a gorgeous look and a fabulous fit. They are well know for their style, fit, comfort and durability. The fabrics used in the line are from Mr. Wicks personal collection of fine fabrics that he has been hoarding since the mid 1960’s. The fabrics are all circa 1965 – 1978. European Influences and Tattoo Designs have become part of the inspiration for the recent introductions into the English Laundry Collection.. With English Laundry a man can have a new hand tailored shirt made of luxury vintage fabric without paying a personal shirtmaker – the work is done and the style is Dead On!
If you want to get a brand up on the Kitmeout homepage either post it on the forum or give us a shout in a shell.
