The Wolfs… père et fils dressed by Bedlam for the big day, an honour with which we were proud to be entrusted!
Crowd surfing in the mosh pit post marriage vows to demonstrate that our seams will take the strain! Jonathan chose an outstandingly beautiful blue worsted (he couldn’t let down his gorgeous bride) over-embroidered with, as we termed them, “bubbles of joy” from Huddersfield Fine Worsted. Embellishment and embroidery were the new red hot chilli peppers at the top of the trend charts.
The UK’s Greatest Male Singer, whose vocal chords currently enhance Mike & the Mechanics, son of South London, and great friend, Andrew Roachford here gets in the pocket of the Bedlam Peacoat groove.
Little Dorrit's church spire at the Borough grows in stature as you approach from the Elephant & Castle until she obscures the Shard altogether. It's all about perspective. You may be vertically challenged but dressed in the confidence bestowed by beautiful clobber you can take on any colossus and obliterate them!
No animal was hurt in the taking of this photograph I assured the passer by. “Neither of them?” he asked with the wit characteristic of the streets of South London. Brian’s lead is created from up-cycled jersey t-shirts and is made by local craftswoman and horticulturalist Stonking Fido which we’re delighted to offer - and collars too - on our e-shop. If you’re not on the lead, you’re not going for a walk.

Kennington Road is a grand avenue of London Plane Trees that stand sentry as London's "benign militia" (thank you Londonist.com for that particular poetry), processing pollution more effectively than any other tree (I believe).
The London Plane Trees cast off their bark. One day it came clunking down on the roof of the car. We collected it up and were struck by nature’s camouflage effect. Back in the studio we made a mosaic of our haul, photographed it and had Hatley Print transfer the image onto silk with which to line our Jeep Jackets.
Vivid lichen on the bark of the London Plane Trees of Kennington that we collected, photographed and printed on to silk. We placed them on one of the popular ready made camo linings from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds.
Printed on to silk, nature's camo effect made up of the bark of Kennington’s London Plane Trees lines the Smoking' General Patton Jeep Coat. Having quilted the lapels we thought, ahhh, we’ve gawn given it a “Smoking” air now, then wondered who would ride in an open top armoured vehicle on a drizzly day whilst smoking a cigar. Our longstanding, fond connection with the Patton family allows us to dedicate this to their outstandingly stylish and accomplished forebear. Made in the miracle fabric invented at Manchester university, the eminently waterproof “Ventile” (r) that was used for the fighter pilots’ suits in WWII to buy them more time to be rescued if they had to ditch into the Channel.
