As anyone who’s ever stood in a field of 80,000 people listening to banging tunes in the middle of a soggy British summer festival can attest to, staying warm and dry at an outdoor gig is often a proper struggle (we’re not talking about you lucky Californian sods who get to bask in the sunshine of Coachella each year).

Perfect summer layering: John Smedley Blue cardie

Colin Chapman knitwear Leave a Comment

Smedley_Blue_Cardie.jpg

This is the point in the year when layering becomes essential. With your peacoat professionally cleaned and (hopefully) being relegated to the wardrobe until autumn, what you need now is some flexible options. One of my perennials is a Sea Island cotton cardigan by John Smedley. Heavier than the usually slinky Sea Island fare, this cardigan will keep the breeze at bay whilst allowing you to breath comfortably during those sweaty Tube moments. I’ve literally had a black version of this cardie for years, actually re-dyeing it black when it starts to fade. It’s a great shape – short on the waist – with chunky, retro-looking buttons.

Silas Winter Lookbook

silas-winter-2008-lookbook-6.jpg

A while ago when Silas pulled out of the UK I was pretty gutted because at the time they were my favorite brand due to the fact that their T-Shirts fit so damn well, the actual design of the T’s were less important to me but to be fair these were just as great. Silas has returned to the UK (though the brand still concentrates on its much larger following in Japan) and has grown up a wee bit with some smarter pieces to their range such as the awesome knitwear and coats featured in this winter 08 lookbook put together by Unbar.
