I’m not nearly cool enough to have heard of Marshall Artist before Street Casuals dropped me an e-mail about them, but I like their style, everything is very clean and wearable. I could natter on for a while but to be honest the SC press release about the goods is far too well put together for me to ignore, so you can find that after the break.
Marshall Artist spring summer 2012 collection is now available at streetcasuals.com. With Marshall Artist’s signature spin on modern British tailoring, this collection is set to be the strongest yet and is packed with some great pieces and nods to it’s British heritage.
The outerwear, always a strong area for Marshall Artist has some great new designs and re-workings of classic styles. The Tailored Golf Blazer is based on a traditional 1930’s golfing blazer and is a must have piece for Spring 2012. The blazer is constructed from a medium wale brush corduroy and features 2 large bellow pockets, a small leather welted ticket pocket, reinforced canvas shoulder details and a slanted chest pocket with button flap.
