Another week, another news round-up. And quite a lot has been going on – the Timperley bowling league received a shake up after finally allowing women to compete with men, a Macclesfield metal thief who claimed he couldn’t serve his sentence due to a broken back was collared after scoring a hat-trick in a football match and perhaps more importantly, Oi Polloi on Thomas Street, Manchester got a fresh shipment of Penfield, Folk and Our Legacy.
The store received a large amount of Penfield clothing in the early hours of yesterday morning as one startled onlooker was heard to gasp, “That’s the most Penfield I have ever seen,” before collapsing in a parka-induced heap.
Dave Smith, 52, was the delivery driver who dropped off this mammoth shipment, “I’ve been in this business for over thirty years now, so I know good stuff when I see it, and just let me tell you, this was good stuff. There were some great t-shirts with pockets, a load of classic parkas like I’ve been trying to get hold of for ages and even a shooting jacket.”
Rex Jones, a window-cleaner from Ashton, was one of the first to see the clothes being placed in the shop, “That Folk stuff looked ace, being a window-cleaner I’m always out in the sun, so I need good shirts, and these were bob-on. There was another brand as well called Our Legacy who made some great t-shirts and sweatshirts. I haven’t worn linen since my honeymoon in Lanzerote but there was a great sweater made of the stuff which looked first-class.”
