Looking effortlessly cool in the winter is not easy. Dressing for the weather and trying to look good is even worse. Lucky for us all then, that the Weekend Offender autumn/ winter collection allows us to look good, and stay warm at the same time.
Heavily inspired by casual culture and deeper subcultures like mods, skinheads and such, the collection brings both of these to their autumn offerings which have been split into two distinct sections, Mainline an Category A, with both collections featuring parkas and clean, crisp shirting.
More refined than in previous seasons (in line with the brands continuing plans for development and a subtler fashion focus), the brand has had an overhaul which sees internal labels updated to a muted and stylish cream on navy which is in line with other branding changes throughout Weekend Offender.
So what of the clothes? As you would expect from a winter collection texture and fabrics are heavy and thick. Knitwear is textured and is a prominent feature of the range, with technical fleece garments featuring contrast nylon pockets and trims.
Key fabrics include nylon on the shimmer jackets; cotton on paisley shirting and a woven repeat W fabric for shirts and trims. Two jackets in the collection also feature a handy Kent Comb, a super convenient accessory for those that want to make sure that they never have a hair out of place.
There is even a stylish taped Kagoule in three standout colours and a parka (classic menswear). Much of the collection is casual enough to wear with ease during the day, with smarter pieces to add for a night out. Available online at www.weekendoffender.com and at the brands flagship London store, as well as throughout other stores in Europe and the US.
