Lavenham Stories - Just Made
More than a menswear retailer, Oi Polloi have done something special since they set up shop in 2002. For the last 20 years, an always impeccable edit of brands ranging from the artisanal to the established has gained the Manchester shop a large and loyal following.
Naturally we were more than excited to collaborate with the Manchester institution and with the Oi Polloi team eagerly set about designing a quilted Bomber Gilet and Jacket. Inspired partly by co-founder Steve Sanderson’s hazy memories of Manchester in the 80’s, and partly by vintage Lavenham gilets and advertisements of the same time, the resulting pieces feel decidedly ‘now’.
In three newly developed shades of our signature recycled polyester, ‘Lavenster’, we’ve played extensively with the pattern, wadding weight and quilt type of both gilet and jacket to create two very special pieces. Designed to fit seamlessly into your wardrobe and fit 'just right', technical wadding locks in warmth whilst a vertical quilt keeps the garment soft. Just like every Lavenham piece, the capsule is made in our Suffolk factory and constructed to withstand daily wear and last for years to come. In other words, it's about utility with added comfort.
Available on both of our respective web-shops, Lavenham.jp and our Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross Shop.
