Apparel of Desire No. 3 and No.4: Old Town Clothing

This is more of an excuse to post some of Old Town Clothing’s fantastic work, than anything else. In truth All of their designs are items that I have spent many hours looking at again and again, but here are two of my favourites:

The Marshalsea Jacket:

Theres something of the Edwardian-gentleman about the profile of this jacket,  though the addition of the patch pockets give it a more casual feel. I can see this being a versatile edition to anyones wardrobe, just as at home over a t shirt or guernsey as with being worn more formally.

High Rise Trousers:

Typical of 1930’s high back trousers, these are apparently based on a pair found lost behind a radiator in the London Transport lost property office. Spurious provenance aside, the High Rise’s are a real classic executed well, not quite Oxford bags, these have the causal bagginess common in mid century trousers right up until the 1950’s
