Don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’re well in the midst of an Oi Polloi winter sale bonanza.
With so much good clobber to choose from, the prospect of diving forehead-first into our sale page might seem pretty daunting, so to rectify that, here’s a handy list of some sale bits we think are worthy of your time.
Adsum Italian Moleskin Workshirt
Adsum’s workshirts are a thing of beauty.
This one here is a little bit more mind-bending than most, thanks in part to that eye-catching hue and intriguing pocket arrangement, but the quality of that Italian moleskin fabric gives it an old-world stoutness not usually associated with 21st century garments.
Perfect for toil of all kinds.
Stone Island 5 Pocket Pants
Next up, these 5 pocket jeans from Stone Island.
As with anything from Stone Island, the fabric is really something to write home about – they’re made out of something called “Panama woven raw cotton hemp canvas”, and have been impregnated with special pigmented resins, which is what gives that tasteful, chalky melange look to them.
Y.M.C. Beat Generation Duffle
One for the luxury fans here – the Beat Generation Duffle from the good folks at Y.M.C.
Made from 100% unadulterated sheepskin, this is the kind-of thing we could see ourselves wearing if we whittled away the hours strolling around our country estate, scoffing caviar-encrusted lobsters and writing off expensive cars.
adidas Continental 80S
We know you’re not a retired tennis pro who resides in the south of France, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress like one.
Take a look at these Continental 80S from adidas – made from some luscious leather, these kicks are bang-on for pilsner-suppin’, chain-smoking, baguette-eating and whatever other xenophobic cliches you can think of.
The North Face British Millerain Sierra Jacket
It’s no secret we’ve got a bit of penchant for waxed cotton, so we were understandably ecstatic when we first caught a glimpse of this British Millerain Sierra Jacket from The North Face.
As its moniker suggests, this is The North Face’s time-honoured Sierra Jacket, made with British manufacturer Millerain’s patented waxed cotton fabric. This lot have been perfecting the art of waxed cotton for over a century, and it really shows.
Whether its quick trips to Tesco or hearty jaunts up Ben Nevis, you can’t go wrong with this.
Howlin’ Isle of Magic
Now, we like autumnally-hued knitwear as much as the next guy, but sometimes you’ve just got to listen to what your heart really wants and invest in a crisp white jumper with some delectable blue and pink stripes on it.
This Isle of Magic knit from Howlin’ is one such jumper… as you can probably tell from the photos. Stop reading this drivel and buy one already!
Superga 2390 Cotu
It might be hard to believe, but summer is right around the corner, which also means it’s probably a wise idea to snag a pair of summer strollers.
And when it comes to summer strollers, we’d be hard-pressed to think of any better than the humble 2390 Cotu from Superga.
Canvas… rubber… laces… very tasty indeed.
Universal Works Bomber Jacket
Universal Works’ take on the humble Bomber Jacket is precisely the type-of garment that gets us hot under the proverbial collar.
It’s got that time-honoured bomber jacket design and short ‘n’ sharp fit that we all know and love, with the added benefit of being made out of some ultra-toasty melton wool fabric.
Finally, a sleek solution to chilly cockpit woes.
Patagonia P-6 Logo Trucker Hat
Unleash your inner Eddie Stobart with the Patagonia P-6 Logo Trucker Hat.
With a classic, mesh-backed design and Patagonia’s hallowed P-6 logo, this remains pretty much undefeated in the open-road-friendly headwear-realm.
