‘Is it a premium super heavy jersey hoodie with vintage nickel No:8 zip… Or is it a real down micro puffa hooded jacket? Well, its both actually and all the better for it. Hood aperture is disconnected from fleece outer to give that layered look.
Its just one of those pieces that you put on & think ‘Why has no one ever made a garment like this before?’ One we are sure will be imitated but never bettered…’
100% cotton heavyweight fleece back. Vintage nickel No:8 zip with branded puller. Super-lightweight kite fabric inner micro puffa, with real down. Rib cuff & hem.

‘It’s not often that genuinely new innovations occur in menswear but micro puffa jackets have taken the world by storm. Its one of those practical outerwear pieces that really cuts it in the urban environment. One of the great mysteries about micro puffas is how they manage to keep you toasty in the cold snaps, yet comfortable as it heats up… Ideal then for our quite superb climate I’m sure you’ll agree… Apart from having premium quality components & fabrics as well as real down & because we are a fff…fashion brand, we have taken the liberty of sharpening up the fit. Theres lots of nice detail such as self piped CF zip & shell fabric stow hood in collar.’
‘There’s no point it trying to tackle a classic staple like a hoodie in a launch range
unless its something a bit special. So we tackled it hard & even though we say so ourselves we’re very proud of the result. The fit is perfect, the fabric is grade A premium heavyweight fleece back & the vintage nickel trim is a quality more commonly associated with premium outerwear.
A good hoodie is a lot like a… Look its just really nice trust us!!’

Here’s the teaser commercial that we made recently for our ‘STAY WILD’ tee. Expertly drawn by Bigfoot’s number 1 stalker Ben Lamb! what do you think?
‘Despite having over 50 years of combined experience in the world of menswear, we are now more than ever driven by the desire to bring you by the process of osmosis the freshest new directions from our constant worldwide travels & our never ending search for the ultimate inspiration for our brand.’
‘This combined with obsessive levels of design integrity, quality of both fabric & trim is all offered to you for a staggeringly reasonable sum.’ ‘It is with this mission always in mind that we proudly offer you a preview of our first ever season…
we launch our new webstore at the end of August 2014.’
‘As far back as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with Hergé’s Tintin and the creature known as Bigfoot. So why not combine those twin passions into one bizarre t-shirt graphic I hear you ask? No problem, here you go. For me, Hergé is a god among men. I could never come close to his level of artistry, but I had a good crack at inking this one in his style. If you read Tintin In Tibet, you’ll spot the genesis of this design It’s also a nod to the famous Patterson-Gimlin film of ‘67 shot in Bluff Creek, California that may, or may not, show a Sasquatch strolling across a creek bed. Perhaps there’s a ‘Squatch out there now, strolling through the old growth timber looking for a sweet spot to make camp for the night… I truly, dearly hope so.’
Above is a link to some of the original Patterson Gimlin footage, shot at Bluff Creek California back in 1967. You can see the inspiration for Bens ‘Stay Wild’ T-shirt for yourself.
We’ll make ‘Squatch fans of you all yet!
inspiration for our brand.’‘This combined with obsessive levels of design integrity, quality of both fabric & trim is all offered to you for a staggeringly reasonable sum.’‘It is with this mission always in mind that we proudly offer you a preview

lined & has super thick shock cord in all the right places to shut out the crippling winter winds.
Make sure you remember to take it off indoors or you wont feel the benefit…’
attention paid to getting the fit absolutely spot on, no stone was left unturned.I think one of the best features is the discharge print & its irreverent pocket positioning… Done!’
