If anyone out there is sat wistfully pondering what that shop called Oi Polloi has got in store for the month of March, then they are most certainly in luck… here’s a handy little run-down of what’s afoot in the next few weeks.
Starting things off in a small, imaginary French village — it’s Arpenteur. Nothing too out of character from this lot, but when you trade in impeccably well-made workwear and seriously stripey tees, why bother chasing waterfalls?
That new adidas Spezial stuff has been sighted on the horizon – AND IT’S ADVANCING FAST! We’re under strict instructions not to talk about any of this yet, so until that super-injunction has been lifted, here’s a photo of the main-man Franz Beckenbauer.
We’ve also been working with Superga on resurrecting a long-lost military gem from their archives. Classic Italiano spag-bol flavour, with the added… er… robustity (if that’s a real word?) of a toecap.
Think these should be rocking up circa mid-March. Again, no photos just yet, so here's a photo of an Italian rally car skidding through some dust.
Next up — Gramicci. Anyone into high-action outdoor legwear should be familiar with this lot. Sort of like a slightly-more zooted Patagonia. Good for scrambling around on rocky outcrops and that sort of thing.
On a similar tip, we’ve got this from Manastash…
And finally, how about this courtesy of orSlow. The future is bright, the future is pink…
