I picked the classic short as they’re a great fitting short for the summer and can be worn rolled up to show the taped seam detail. The shirt is a Japanese light weight fabric and the check works well with the shorts. The Gideon jacket makes a great alternative to a harrington and gives it a bit of a preppy look.
Leon work at our brick lane store.
We have just received the latest stock from The Hillside, a brand based in Brooklyn, New York.
They make neckties, handkerchiefs, and scarves out of utilitarian fabrics not commonly found in neckwear, such as selvedge chambray, hemp/cotton selvedge denim, left-hand twill, cotton duck, and waxed canvas. Each piece is hand made at a small factory in New York City.
One of our best selling garments from the past few seasons has been our rainmac, as we are prone to do we’ve tweaked it again for Spring Summer and made something that does what it says on the tin by keeping you dry but also satisfies our design spirit by adding the bells and whistles that makes Folk what it is.
If you haven’t been round our neck of the woods recently you may not know that we’ve just opened a womens store. The 1000 sq ft store is on Lambs Conduit Street in London and is two doors away from our current store which has become a dedicated menswear space.
The women’s store provides the ideal environment to showcase our autumn winter footwear collection of veg tanned leather boots, heels and sheepskins and reflects our focus on quality materials and attention to detail with a reclaimed wood backdrop, rope hung lighting and rails and a shelving system that have been crafted from of old ware boards from a disused pottery factory in North England. The store also features a painted mural on one wall and solid marble heads from sculptor Paul Van Stone.
Our footwear collection is complemented by a selection of clothing from other brands including Sessun, Humanoid and Won Hundred. There is jewellery from Antwerp based designer Karin Nunez de Fleurquin and skin and hair care products from Australian brand Aesop. The store will also become a base for Folk to develop its own womenswear collection with the first initial pieces being developed currently and expected to be in store pre-xmas.
