Their 'jogging suits' are currently very popular with those on remand. ...

The JD owned collection… complete with those fucking borstal pumps.

The Duffer Japan collection as mentioned in the article is based on the original ethos/ look

Re: Duffer of Saint George

Used to LOVE Duffer back in the day and bought absolutely shitloads of their gear when you used to have the schlep down to Ichi Ni San and Aspecto in Glasgow.  Alas the ubiquitous hoodie and Debenhams licensing deal killed it stone dead.  Store in Covent Garden was acemans too.  Met Eddie P at Kenneth from 6876's 50th and he's a proper character. Bought the arch socialist Dundonian a Thatcher biography for his birthday.  Inscription was priceless.  Saw the new Jap stuff in Glasgow at the weekend - good quality but I would have to pass I'm afraid.

Re: Duffer of Saint George

bought a shirt from hip in leeds in the nineties ,still wear it ,so had my moneys worth out of it

Re: Duffer of Saint George

Looked at the new collection to buy for the store and we'll pass. Some things are best left in the generation they came from with good memories.
Fave stores for Duffer ? The old store on D'Arblay Street, as NNC the immaculate Ichi Ni San, Drooghi in Cardiff, Hip and Geese over in Manchester.

Anyone for Mau Mau big_smile

Re: Duffer of Saint George

Not sure about the Japan stuff.

Always felt like it was fixated on getting the name on everything.

I used to pop in quite a bit, but like Westwood it's clearly pitched at 14 to 19 year olds in Japan.

Much preferred Beams and Nanamica, which is what most people in Japan progress to.

Liked Duffer when they had stuff that they bought in that didn't have their name on it. Early Napapijiri smock with the Norway flag on the front pocket springs to mind and the Yogi shoes.

I've still got my Napapijiri, must be coming up to 20 years old this year or next.

Re: Duffer of Saint George

Ted introduced me to the Duffer bloke, he was mental. Had some interesting tales lurching from meeting Fidel Castro with Kate Moss to being in Winstons in Leeds. He's got some shop or other in shoreditch, cant remember the name other than he reckons he had the best barista in London. I think he'd had something stronger than one of his lad's lattes when I was talking to him.

Steve Davies. 147 Shoreditch Hi! Street? Perfect.

He’s walked back to his youth and hymned the young man he was with knowing affection, despite the rain of bitter knowledge manhood has inevitably brought him.

Re: Duffer of Saint George

Present…  Steve's the old buyer from Duffer, and a very good friend of mine. Placid met Eddie who's one of the original founders of Duffer and Steve.

You must be kidding

Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity

Have you heard about this, Ted (and anyone else who might be interested)?

the Masterplan: A new autobiography by Barrie Sharpe

Be it as a clothing designer (for the Duffer of St George and his own Sharpeye label), one half of the groundbeat (an offshoot of acid jazz and rare groove) act Diana Brown & Barrie K Sharpe, running the Cat in the Hat club night at the Comedy Store in Soho, and as a DJ (playing at Rene Gelston’s Blackmarket night at the Wag Club, as well as gigs worldwide), Barrie Sharpe (featured in Jocks&Nerds Issue 11) has contributed his fair share to London’s cultural make-up over the past four decades.

His new autobiography, This Was Not Part of the Masterplan, is Sharpe’s first venture back into his youth. Looking at his first four years in Brick Lane as an infant (born on 31 January, 1960), being sent to the Essex children’s home Harold Wood Hall after his mother was admitted into Goodmayes Mental Institution, moving to Australia in 1968, back to the East End a year after, then on to his teenage years and adulthood, the book charts the path through which Sharpe forged his now solidly-formed cultural identity.
