Kicking off this weeks edition of Something For The Weekend is a lovely knitwear piece from easily my favourite brand and one the hottest out right now— Aimé Leon Dore.
Aimé Leon Dore Ribbed Raglan Sweater
Taking aesthetic cues from 80’s and 90’s, the brand feels much older than its 2014 birth day suggest’s. In a good way. It’s recent collaborations are a testament to how successful their brand is at sparking feelings of nostalgia in us.
The brands most notable link up with sports car king Porsche was truly beautiful. I’ll let the video do the talking… Link to Sweater and even more appetising video of a vintage 1990 Porsche going sideways through the snow.

Carharrt WIP Single Knee Pant
Big painter and decorator vibes! Theses pants from the kings of workwear, whilst white, are constructed in a way to be able to take a battering. These are easily coupled with with either loafers, boots or sneakers.

Nike Blazer Mid ’77
Bringing it back almost to the beginning, with the first Blazer being released in 1973, this ’77 is as close as it gets to the original iteration. Simpler times in the 70’s in terms of design has allowed this sneaker to travel through time as a fashion staple. Used in smart/casual and street fits.

A View to a kill print
In the wake of the news that the new Bond film has been pushed back until November, its out with the new and in with the old.
This print from Roger Moore’s last bond film ‘A View To A Kill’ is one of the best on the 007 web-store and whilst the film wasn’t all that great, the Duran Duran theme tune and movie poster surely make up for it.
