Batten down the borders, beautiful bits from Battenwear have just arrived on our shores, and as you’d expect from the brand from The Big Apple, everything’s looking ‘rosy’.
Feeling in a ‘Camp‘ mood? They’ve got just the things for you – from Plaid Camp shirts (with pockets-a-plenty), to Camp Caps, Camp Shorts and Camp Pants…’Camp‘ as in ‘Row of Tents‘ not as in ‘Trifle on the Table at Biggins’ House‘.
If you’re still struggling with tag 5p plastic bag tax, then invest in one of Battenwear’s bags. Those packable totes that Dr Mark Propermag tried to educate you about a few weeks back are around or if you’re worried about your butties getting battered try one of the sturdier Day Hiker Bags. They’ve even looked out for you if the Launderette drier’s broken half way through its cycle by way of their Wet-Dry Bags.
Battenwear have also thrown into the mix some classic US Athletic inspired warm up wear via short sleeved sweats and Gym jackets (not Jim’s jacket) in a summery Blueberry hue for blue sky days.
I wouldn’t be fulfilling my Proper contract if I didn’t mention jackets and, unsurprisingly, Battenwear have these sewn up too. From posh pac-a-macs (actually Packable Anoraks) to Weekend Jackets that look pretty bloody decent any old day of the week – both in a light enough Nylon for Summer manoeuvres. There’s also their RipStop cotton Scout Anoraks – making you look the part as you go “dib, dib, dobbing” with the best of them and finally slim-line Mountain Parkas, meaning you’re Beer Garden ready even if Mother Nature ain’t.
