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.

Knitwear, it’s not just for Christmas

Let’s just take a moment to chat about jumpers.  They are stylish but practical, keeping us warm and often covering up all the bits that are sometimes best left hidden. We all have our favourites, some favourites even have holes in but we refuse to recycle them because they’ve spent many months wrapped round us like a security blanket. But the good news is that when living in Britain a jumper is a wardrobe staple all year round. So if you’re mourning the loss of your big chunky winter knits... Read More

Spotlight on Schöffel

Schöffel has been going for longer than O&C Butcher having started life in Germany in 1804 and is now run by the 6th generation of the Schöffel family.  That’s an impressive heritage and whilst it began with knitted stockings and night-caps it turned it’s focus onto outdoor wear and now is one of the leading names in ski-wear in Germany and other parts of Europe. For the UK market Schöffel took inspiration from the warmth of ski-wear and applied it to countrywear so that those who were out shooting could... Read More
