Oi Polloi changed the way I dress myself and probably a lot of the post britpop/casual lads style my generation in Manchester have been lumbered with. More so for having the confidence to stock stuff lazy bloggers have nothing better than to slag off. Set trends don't follow them etcetcetc.
In the last few weeks alone they've stocked great garms from brands I've never even heard of. Svennson (dare I spot the waffle knit trend on the horizon?), Luke Simon, Seil Marschall blah blah blah. Derivative competitors will be stocking them in 6 months. Set trends don't follow them etcetcetc. All very much a sign that the buying is as obsessive, committed and geeky as the clientèle. I hate to think of the dastardly deeds brands PRs play on them such is the influence of being stocked by them now.
Anyway I've been far too nice. I'm off to burn pictures of Ronson. Set trends don't follow them etcetcetc. I've been reading a lot of David peace recently. Hacks copy. Genius Steals.

There was an Amanda Wilson in every school wasn't there? Very pretty girl. We all know what she got up to at the back of double Chemistry with Kev. Then there was the sports day incident with John. The year 11 disco with Matt. Word was anything you wanted you got. Oh and everyone remembers the leavers ball. Admittedly she was cracking looking and very well put together. But you know sometimes she wore some shocking things. Like those neon green tights! What was she thinking?! Might look her up on Facebook. Peggs and Son

"We've been quite anti-branding, that's why it was very hard for us to print t-shirts or put our name on top of a garment – it never felt natural, in fact it always feels kind of dumb.".
