CP Hat – Goggle Beanie

CP Hat or Google Beanie Review

CP Hats Goggle Beanies

Periodically it has been proven that certain brands produce a piece of clothing that the brand will forever be associated with. For example, Woolrich have the Arctic Parka, Stone Island – Tela Stella, Clarks Originals – the Desert Boots and CP Company have the Goggle jacket. So CP is riding the success of the goggle jacket in today’s culture by producing these CP Hats with built-in goggles.

It would have been easy for the brand to take any staple beanie hat and stick a couple of goggles on the front.  However, CP Company have produced a chunky ribbed CP Company Goggle Beanie Hat which is in essence produced to keep your head warm and incorporated the goggles to the front and reverse of the upturned part of the hat. Rather than just being strictly decorative, if you wish you could pull down the lip of the CP hat over your eyes and be able to see through the goggles. It is essentially for show but it’s nice to know that they are ‘working goggles’.

Everyone needs some chunky accessories for winter but not everyone suits the patterned prints that have become so popular in the last few years. Maybe a CP hat will be an option for you?  Priced at £95, it is available now online.

CP Company AW19 Arrivals

Attention all goggle hood fanatics we’ve just found ourselves in the possession of a fresh batch of CP Company garments. Spanning graphic print t-shirts, overshirts, joggers, hoodies and just about everything else you could wish for, we’re sure this first glance behind the CP Company AW19 curtain will certainly pique your interest for things to come.

Promising more of the same militaristic styling and technical nuance that has propelled the Italian brand into cultural stardom, this first arrival digs its heels deep into the brand’s signature trademarks with plenty of rich garment-dyed colours, complex fabrication and lens detailing up for grabs.

CP Company New Arrivals

To kick proceedings off it would only be right that we get things underway with all things chrome metal. An inherent component of their outerwear offering, thanks to its versatility, functional qualities and dyeing capabilities, the fabric is often seen spread evenly across collections no matter the time of year.

More recently, with the overshirt becoming a more prominent piece in contemporary wardrobes, the nylon-based material has had its moment to shine, lending itself perfectly to the jacket meets shirt combination and compounding with the classic CP design ethos to dazzling effect. Case and point these rather stunning black and blue examples below…

CP Company Overshirt

Taking on a somewhat more traditional silhouette than some of CP’s overshirt output the garments hold the brand’s core values of usability and practicality at their core. Boasting a diverse, almost unfair, the line-up of intrinsic properties that encompass everything from breathability to elemental resistance, the lightweight jackets come imbued with quick-drying qualities and are treated with unique colour processes for a distinctive finish. If that wasn’t enough you can also find both a zip pocket to the chest and sleeve accompanied by the unmistakable lens motif and some handy adjustable cuffs.

CP Company AW19

Elsewhere CP Company set their experimental sights on more cotton-based endeavours, using their years of clothing expertise to revamp quintessential pieces of casual outfitting. Taking the usual zip hoodie formula to its very limit, this season sees the off-duty piece bolstered out with a google lens buckle secured hood, a partially ribbed hem and two front zip pockets for a more pragmatic approach. Pair it up with the brand’s ever-on-point joggers and you’ve got yourself an ensemble presenting maximum comfort laced with an urban edge.

Sweatshirts, t-shirts and polo shirts have also received some love with not only a quality dusty pink colour on offer but a number of top-notch adaptions of CP Company’s usual callouts present and correct for all of your branded needs. Spanning subtle tonal embroidery, not so subtle argyle style patterning and tasteful patchwork there really is something for everyone to get their teeth stuck into no matter you’re your preferred approach.

With archival inspiration and a desire to innovate fuelling their steadfast sensibilities, CP Company has consistently surpassed expectations, evolving collection to collection in a way that not only pushes the brand into new territories but manages to preserve the very essence that has got them this far. It seems, based upon what we have got our hands on up until now, CP Company AW19 is set to be no different.

CP Company Air-Net Flock Printed Jacket | Available Now

Like fellow countrymen Stone Island, C.P. Company are no slouch when it comes to innovative and eye-catching textile treatments for their outerwear, and since their inception in 1975 have been a go-to for anyone looking to flex the pinnacle of military-inspired sportswear design.

For Spring Summer ’18, the brand have outdone themselves with a wild new fabric that combines a bold and unique aesthetic with the expected technical features that made their name: the Air-Net. Using the classic multi-filament Chrome nylon as a base, the fabric is then printed on the interior face with a three-dimensional honeycomb flock pattern, which serves the dual purpose of adding structure to the fabric, as well as creating an air pocket effect within the garment itself, capturing warm air to provide insulation to the wearer when worn with layers underneath. This also has the interesting side effect of absorbing colour during the garment dyeing process, leaving the pattern visible on the jacket’s external facing for a striking look.

 

The jacket itself is designed with modern looks and functionality in mind, boasting toggle adjustment tunnels to the hem, an anatomically shaped hood with two-way adjustment and stacked side pockets concealed by two-way zips which allows for easy access to essential items while keeping the lines of the piece sleek and clean. A utility pocket to the left sleeve finishes the piece, as well as housing the Lens Viewer device, giving a nod back to the brand’s iconic Mille Miglia Goggle jacket.

The C.P. Company Air-Net Flock Printed Jacket is available now alongside more pieces from the brand’s Spring Summer ’18 collection.

2 Unforgettable Summer Nights Back In The 90’s

Be taken back to Sunday 11th August 1996, a clammy Sunday evening in a massive muddy field with “The Swamp Song” blasting over the speakers while the anticipation builds around the 125,000 strong crowd. The smell of beer and mud mixed with Lynx can be smelt everywhere, while plastic pint glasses are strewn across the grass in between adidas trainers. Any Oasis fan will know this as the weekend that made history, 2 consecutive nights at Knebworth park. Playing to 250,000 people over the 2 nights, this was a bench mark set for other bands and artists to hit and cemented the bands status as Britain’s biggest band at the time. Seeing oasis in concert during the mid-90’s was a right to passage for many teenagers, so this was a must have ticket.

Oasis Knebworth

10 facts about Oasis’ gig at Knebworth that you might not have known

  1. Noel cannot remember a thing about it – and as the saying goes, if you can remember Britpop then you weren’t there!
  2. 5 million people applied for tickets – which is more than 4% of the UK population
  3. According to eye witness descriptions there was thought to be around 7000 people on the guest list
  4. VIPs were given their own Oasis branding binoculars – Just think about that for a moment…. The VIP circle was at the front, so a little ironic really.
  5. It took 3000 crew members to stage the concert.
  6. The concert had its own radio station called Radio Supernova
  7. Over the 2 days there was only 10 arrests
  8. One Oasis member thought the band should have split up after the gig – mentioning no names *Paul Bonehead*
  9. The bands “support” acts included The Chemical Brothers, Ocean Colour Scene, Manic Street Preachers and the Prodigy
  10. The mammoth event was 21 years ago

“I wasn’t surprised Knebworth happened that quickly [two-and-a-half years after signing off the dole]. I thought it would have happened a lot quicker. I knew we were going to be massive; it was just a matter of time. There were no nerves for me leading up to the shows. I don’t get nervous. If you get nervous you shouldn’t be doing it. What’s there to be nervous about? One hundred and twenty-five thousand people there to give you love?” -Liam Gallagher

With the recent release of Supersonic before Christmas – An in-depth look at the life and music of Manchester-based rock band, Oasis, GQ managed to get an exclusive interview with Noel and Liam. Read the full article over on GQ.

Where you at the gig or can you remember listening to it on the radio? Comment below and let us know your memories on the 2 unforgettable summer nights.

Get the Gallagher Look

Liam and Noel Gallagher’s fashion sense has somewhat changed over the years, mainly maturing, but keeping some of the staples like the iconic Parka and polo shirts. With their style and attitude, the Gallagher’s were seen as somewhat of fashion icons in the 90’s and the bands firm following still take fashion tips from Liam and Noel. Sightings of the pair can be seen on Instagram and Twitter for fans to replicate the look.

The brit pop era celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, and with that came a revival in some of the classics which have been making their way back on the fashion scene over the last few years – some have never gone (Fred Perry polo shirts for example).

Firstly both brothers like a good polo shirt, Liam can be seen wearing Fred Perry in the Oasis heyday and Noel now opts for Stone Island.

 

oasis_fred_perry

Next comes jackets. Over the years the lads have come to love a good Parka. Liam still opts for a Parka, below he can be seen sporting a Stone Island Parka while Noel tends to stick to a more laid back sporty look with the likes of CP Company.
