Our cult The Shining inspired Overlook hat was the very first time anybody had the idea of putting that geometric pattern into clothing, many have since followed our lead. BUT we're not done with that, following our recent shirts, shorts and summer hats and socks, the Overlook returns in a brand new special edition.
Things have got a little darker, Blue hues replace the famous garish carpet colours. It takes it's name 'Midnight' from the chilling final scene of the movie with the accompanying Al Bowlly and Ray Noble and His Orchestra song. It's finally here and online Tuesday 30th Jan at 7pm.

Over the years we've carved out some rather unique ideas for our Weir hats, be it oscure or famous movie carpets, transport upholstery patterns or various random ideas from afar. This one is in that familiar CC vein but also with a bigger meaning behind it. This one pay's tribute to arguably Britain's greatest institution, The National Health Service.
The National Health Service began under Clement Atlee's Labour government in 1945. Founded and set up by then Health Minister Nye Bevan. The NHS was born out of the ideal that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of wealth. 
At its launch by Bevan on 5 July 1948 it had at its heart three core principles: 
That it meet the needs of everyone, that it be free at the point of delivery, and that it be based on clinical need, not ability to pay.
A fantastic and solid idea that one would imagine would be championed and celebrated and without doubt be "the institution which more than any other unites our nation". 
Sadly, the NHS has been raped and destroyed by a Tory party hellbent on selling it off to the private sector and in the current climate the destruction thus far, has culminated in it's worse state it's ever been in. Even Thatcher didn't do as much damage as this current woeful government has. 
An absolute insult and crying shame to all the hardworking doctors, nurses and staff who provide amazing patient care going above and beyond expectations, whilst effectively having their pay cut over the last 7 years. Anyway you don't need me to tell you all that, it's clear for all to see. 
With that in mind, we felt this winter, we should pay tribute to the NHS and more so help raise awareness and join the campaign to to help save the NHS. The pattern is based on a standard NHS hospital gown which if you've ever been admitted overnight or for an operation you'll have had one of these on. 
We will be donating a share of the spoils as with previous fund raising Weirs to a registered NHS charity/fundraising group once all is sorted. Whilst this is merely a drop in the ocean, the hat may hopefully raise some extra awareness, every little helps. 
The hat will go online this Thursday at the usual time of 7pm (GMT)

Elementary! The classic Deerstalker hat returns for a sixth edition, and once again there's no messing about here! What can you say about this hat? Sherlock Holmes' famous 'ear-flapped travelling cap', an old school casual staple, an acquired taste? definitely! Casual luxury at it's finest.
We've done something a bit different once again, with a multi coloured glorious Donegal Tweed. Features include our small woven label to the peak, leather ties and of course fold down ear flaps and two peaks for the price of one. Just look at all those colours. Made just for us by long standing hat manufacturers (Est. 1898). Only the best will doodle do!

Monday see's our final release of 2017 with the Partridge Weir. Based on an old skit from his old talk show 'Knowing Me, Knowing You'. 

'Who's this cool customer?' 
- Ice white shoes. 
- Ice white socks with navy blue double cadet stripe. 
- A pair of shorts. 
- t-shirt with chevron action flash. 
'L'homme du sport!, (Man of sport) 
- A tossed pink sweater, that says I'm in Paris and nothing's going to stop me.
We did a tee of this a while back and now we've done a bobble hat, because we're a bit mental. This is all about the 'chevron action flash' polo and topped off with a Pink bobble which represents the tossed Pink sweater, see? Tuesday will also be our last posting day pre-Xmas. It's online Monday at 7pm GMT

Tomorrow see's the release of our first Weir this winter. The Pulsar II. This is a flip of the colours of last years hat though this one is complimented with a nice bright green bobble. Inspiration is obvious for this one but we'll let you decide for yourself. 
We got some nice pics recently, so check them out here. 
This is our first Weir release and there's less designs than previous years. When we started doing these hats in our own unique style nine years ago we were the only people doing them, fast forward to the last year or so and there's a dozen or more doing them in an almost identikit way, some brazenly! It's frustrating but when you create something successful it's bound to happen eventually! So I guess we have to look at it as less is more and we move on and try and thing of more crazy, more different ideas for the next ones. There's more to follow this one, with the Alan Partridge one next week and more in the new year so keep you're eyes peeled. This one goes online tomorrow at 7pm. Limited numbers, fastest fingers first and all that cal.

Just a little reminder that the postal service is at it's busiest ever at Xmas and thus items take longer to be delivered. For the record our last posting date to receive items before Xmas (UK only) is Tues 19th December at 10am. This is in line with Royal Mail guidelines. Please note: Overseas sales is significantly earlier and orders placed after the 9th Dec will be subject to extra time and delays to arrive. 
We will continue to visit the post office as regularly as we can either side of a few days off and when it's open over the festive period. Other than that, please continue to keep an eye out for new release updates on here and the socials and if we don't say it again, have a good Christmas.

Another crazy tee in collaboration with our Moscow mates, Outskirts. 
This one is an illustrated satirical jibe at the rich, hype kids wearing their over expensive 'street' clothes. 
Basically we have two devilish Casuals boiling them up in a big cauldron and the quote "ГОТОВ К ТРУДУ И ОБОРОНЕ" (Ready For Labor and Defence) which was an old Soviet program designed to get people up and about and fitter and more recently adopted by a certain design house for their hyped up pricey garb.
A rather Limited edition release this one, available from both Outskirts and ourselves on a white tee and, AND it contains GLOW IN THE DARK INK too!!! Free stickers too. Online this Monday at 7pm (GMT), also available via Outskirts too.
