Number Six & Co. | Fall/Winter 2011 Styled by The Rig Out

London’s Number Six introduces a new series called “Number Six & Co.” where they commission some notable folks to style some of the season’s products. First up for Fall 2011 is Glenn Kitson of The Rig Out as he pulls influence from the 80s and focus on classic working class style.

There are massive parallels at the moment with the early part of the 1980s, economically, socially and politically. It was also a period of amazing creativity amongst Britain’s youth in style and music. Never since that era has the quote ‘clean living under difficult circumstances’ seemed so apt.

Look for warm knits from Ben Sherman’s upcoming Modern Classics collection as well as Ralph Lauren while the shots feature footwear from Adidas and Clarks.

Ralph Lauren Floral Print Niagara Camp Shirt

Ralph Lauren Floral Print Niagara Camp Shirt

Ralph Lauren drops this shirt exclusively for London’s Number Six. It comes in the label’s custom fit which happens to be one of my favorite cuts on the market right now. “The wash and subtle irregularities in colour to the shirt are the result of a special treatment to give an authentic sun-faded effect.” It’s lightweight and features a fly collar with top button detail as well as two front patch chest pockets and a straight hem.

Grenson for Number Six London Hampstead Boot

Grenson for Number Six London Hampstead Boot

English shoemaker Grenson has teamed up with Number Six of London for the Hampstead boot. Pulling inspiration from an old American work boot, this one’s fully calf lined, apron-fronted and made from brown Scotch grain calf. It’s hand-burnished up to 3 times to give the boot its unique finish. The natural leather welt and classic vibram sole really make this a great boot all around.

Wet Women Exhibition at Number Six London [Art]

Taking place this week at Number Six London is an art exhibition that brings Amanda Langford’s 1988 showing in St. Martin French West Indies back to life. The show, entitled WET WOMEN will feature slides from the original exhibition, which were found in the attic of her Miami home. Her appreciation for the late 80’s/ Early 90’s aesthetic should be well-recieved at a menswear shop which recognizes the same.

If you’re in London on Thursday (August 26th), then we think you should stop in at Number Six and check out the exhibition.
