Farah’s latest collection has been inspired by the iconic music label Creation records and takes a DIY approach to their new style. One of the definite standouts from the new season is the brands Butcher jacket which features a brand new all over camouflage design.

Two oversized hand pockets, a full zip closure, a snap close storm flap and a branded Farah patch to the sleeve complete the look and make this the right jacket for anyone looking to face the Winter head on.

From a British brand with a history stretching back over 150 years to one of the best contemporary British brands. The Pretty Green Millfield jacket showcases perfectly why the Liam Gallagher led brand has cemented their place in modern menswear and the Indie inspired brand is going nowhere fast. The Pretty Green Autumn Winter ‘18 collection is inspired by the post-punk/new wave era in the early eighties which was one of the most pivitol periods in British youth culture. The Millfield jacket is a classic parka style crafted from a premium pure cotton and available in two colourways with a modern slim cut. With front button fastening and a protective hood the Millfield jacket will protect you from the worst of the British winter in style.
