'It Requires A Sure Confidence To pull It Off' - Why I love Stone Island

First up a plain Barbour shirt from me maw. Dark blue and white test, quite a chunky test too. Not the standard skinny check most of my shirt choices have. Liking the lack of outer labelling, only a small discreet shield motif with no phrases on chest pocket.


Next up a nice good Harris Tweed scarf. It's stiff, it is itchy and it smells of piss when wet, however what a cracking look. Brown/cream houndsteeth design from these Outer Hebrides hermits who weave the wool in their residing room. Effectively documented that Casual Connoisseurs Harris Tweed scarves all offered out inside a minute, however most well-liked this colourway direct from Harris Tweed - half the worth of CC efforts at a low low £15. A reward from the wife, who thankfully has the same view on scarves as me - that you could never have too many...


Which is a good factor because the maw-in-law obtained me one other one. A smart Paul Smithesque college scarf by House of Frasers Linea vary. Not one thing I've ever bought from before, however in my humble opinion the likes of HoFs Linea and Howick are just like M&S - they supply good quality everyday clobber for an inexpensive value. Anyway it is all the time been about design as opposed to the label for me (not strictly true when I was younger, however is now I am more mature), so there.


Subsequent something I been after for an excellent whereas however could not warrant it at full worth. Nonetheless found one on eBay BNWT and bought him for £30. A Casual Connoisseur 'Beat-a-storm' MKII cagoule. Anyone studying this won't want telling they used the Peter Storm Cag as their template and made a fairly rattling cool waterproof/windproof lightweight jacket. Deffo the best colourway of the second set of releases, though would have killed for a blue one of the unique set. Nonetheless this seems the canines on and the quality is much better than expected, totally lined in white rubbery waterproofing inside. Well accomplished lads.


Finally another eBay buy. Been on a downer about Stone Island not too long ago and bought this jumper off. Nonetheless felt misplaced with out Stone Island Outlet being considered one of the original S.I. crew. So saw one other one pop up on Bay and had to have it. Got for the same worth as I bought it, he was one measurement bigger so a bit extra comfy, plus in higher nick than my outdated one so all in all a end result. Pale green with marina stripes, and those of you movie buffs may recognise it from Nick Love's Soccer Manufacturing facility, because the knit on the 'nutter in a Stone Island jumper and a blade in my face' - but we'll not hold that against it.
