GENESIS TABLE TOP

‘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.’

BASIC hoody

‘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!!’

‘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.’

STAY WILD TEE

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!

FLUX
‘The Flux Capacitor Jacket sits proudly a top the pyramid that is UG AW14 Launch collection, with just about everything but the kitchen sink thrown at it. Not one, but 2 fabrics in the mix to give shower protection where its needed the most and a very nice laundered finish to compliment the beautiful vintage real leather trim.The shape has been sharpened up to give a contemporary fit. It’s no pretender either as it’s Borg
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…’
SWEAT
If you’re going to do something, then do it right was the phrase swirling around our heads as we tackled the design & development process on this one. From the quality of the loopback to the
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!’
BENPICS
SEMI
‘I’ve always loved chunky 3D letters. Lately I’ve been playing around with phrases and slogans and filling them up with patterns and motifs. I had fun adding in little details so there’s stuff to pick out if you look closely. Hand drawn as always.’
