With key designers seeing their first AW14 collections hitting the high street stock rooms, it might be worth taking a moment and remember it is only August. Despite me undoubtedly putting the kiss of death on British summertime by saying; ‘surely we’ve got some warm weather left’ , the thought of spending my cash on parka’s, scarves and knitwear seems a long way off. Therefore, what better place to focus our attentions than established menswear retailer ‘Officers Club’ who have their rails packed with SS14 bargains that will keep you both looking and feeling fresh for the remainder of the summer months.
In an industry littered with high end brands and high end prices, the Officers Club offers young, fashion conscious males an easily accessible, cost effective domain in which to discover the latest trends. Drawing inspiration from exclusive menswear designers the UK retailer prides itself on being at the forefront of high street fashion, manufacturing/stocking quality clothing at a competitive price.
Established in 1992, the first Officers Club stores were located in the North East of England and I clearly remember regular trips to the store during my late teens. Even back then I always felt the store had its finger on the pulse and as a young man exposed to a new world of affordable, quality menswear it really inspired me to take a keener interest in high street fashion and the particularly brands they stocked at the time.
Over twenty years on and the menswear retailer now has over 80 stores across the UK, a thriving online business and its own menswear clothing label. With a future looking increasingly bright for the Officers Club we’ve thought it apt to share some of our picks from their vibrant summer sale.
Here’s what we plumped for:
1. BC London Waffle Polo Shirts in a fresh summer colour-way featuring 100% cotton waffle construction, 3 button placket and contrasting button detail.
2. Creative summer short-sleeved shirting from the likes of Twisted Soul, BC London and their own Officer Club label; including some great floral designs.
