Halfway through the winter and I’ve reached that point where my jumpers are no longer in a good place;  The life and soul has been worn and washed out of their sorry, bobbly seams.  And it certainly doesn’t help when I see objects of desire like these from Pringle of Scotland AW14.

Which is odd, because when I was at Secondary school we were all divided into tribes depending on what we wore, the main two being ‘Trendies’ and ‘casuals’ – Trendies were the middle class kids who wore their baggy, ripped, holey clothes as a source of pride.  Whilst the Casuals – the rougher kids on free school meals – revelled in the allure of Designer labels.  Their uniform of choice was a Burberry-check box-pleat skirt, Pringle twin set and knee high riding boots set off with layers and layers of heavy gold chains, worn with the same intent as medieval weaponry.

Weaving together heritage with modern flair he’s made a seamless leap to the future.

I think it’s time I looked ahead too….
