Spring, it’s a gradual process…

From -10C in 1956 to 19.7C in 1998 it’s fair to say that February weather can be changeable. Who would have thought that we’d be blessed with such a lovely Half Term week here on the coast – we don’t need to break records, we’re very happy to reach double digits thank you. But what does this mean for your wardrobe? The fashion press will talk about ‘transitional’ layers but this just means it’s time to think about what you’re wearing under your jumper. If you’re lucky it might be... Read More

Our Top Tips for Aldeburgh Festival 2017

2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Snape Maltings Concert Hall and the 69th Aldeburgh Festival is celebrating with a suitably jam packed programme of Music, Art and Workshops.

Menswear Picks – September 2016

O&C MD James is our Menswear Buyer so we asked him to talk us through some of the AW16 trends. Men are often steered by the weather, how terribly British of them. The last few years haven’t been especially cold and when this is the case customers buy what they want rather than what they need.  This may sound obvious but it’s nice to see customers buying a coat because they just really love it. But men also want the classics, they don’t need a drastic change in their wardrobe,... Read More

Womenswear Picks – September 2016

We asked Felicity, our Womenswear Manager, to show us some of her favourite pieces for AW16. The first item that Felicity chose is the Oui Wool and Alpaca Cardigan which is on trend with one of the season’s key looks – the Coatigan (although she can’t stand the word!). Combining the best of the coat and cardigan it’s chunky knit and functional features mean it’s a versatile piece. Felicity suggests combining it with something decidedly feminine and delicate. It also works well with jeans or a dress. All in all... Read More

Staff Picks – May 2016

Here at O&C Butcher the shop floor staff are incredibly knowledgeable about the products we stock. So with that in mind we decided to ask them which products in this season’s range had really stood out for them so far. Menswear Hannah S chose the Sebago Docksides® Ariaprene™ in Black. She says “I bought a pair myself even though they are normally a Men’s Shoe as they are super comfortable, very durable and are something different from a traditional brown deck shoe.” Shop the Full Range of Men’s Sebago Shoes...
