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 Weds 20th December. This is in line with Royal Mail guidelines. 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 one.

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.

The Overlook pattern is synonymous with two things Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and ourselves ; The Casual Connoisseur, for it was us who first placed this wonderful pattern into clothing. It like our house check, our tartan, our urban camouflage if you will. Now we have our very own luxury socks. 
Made for us by Corgi who've been making socks since 1892, and are even by Royal Appointment to Prince Charlie of Wales if that floats your boat! More importantly they've been made by Connoisseur appointment and thus are available tomorrow at 7pm. Comes with two exclusive free stickers for the win.
