Brands Investing In For AW12

Looking at the AW12/13 collections I am looking to invest in the following brands.

Junya Watanabe MAN
Nigel Cabourn
Maison Martin Margiela
Raf Simons
Stone Island
Han Kjobenhavn
Engineered Garments

I am going to be investing in a Malory jacket by Nigel Cabourn for sure and possibly a Stone Island Ice Jacket.

Some good thick woolen jumpers and sweatshirts are needed because I think it is going to be a cold winter.

I also really need to build up my shirts and tee shirts because I have neglected them over the last year.

From a colour perspective I am looking at investing in bright blue, grey, orange, and white - carrying over the dark blue and green from last winter.

Pick Of The Trainers - Adidas ZX500 and Asics Team Netherlands from End Clothing

I think I am going to be investing in these Adidas ZX500 (I had a pair in the 1980s) and Asics x Team Netherlands from End Clothing.

Woolrich Bright Gold Byrd Artic Parka

It might seem a bit strange to be thinking about winter jackets as we finally get some sun in the UK but this Woolrich parka from Coggles is worth the investment.

Paninaro ... Pet Shop Boys

I have always been a big fan of Paninaro and probably have the Pet Shop Boys and the manager (nameless) of the first clothes shop I worked for to thank.
