Spring & Summer Collection

I love this time of year, the mornings are lighter, the days are beginning to get  longer and there is a little bit of warmth in the sun. There is the sound of fledglings in the air, but even better there is the smell and sound of two-stroke engines – some of the four strokes are put away for the summer – as the older scooters are dusted off, polished and ridden with pride. The scooter runs are stacking up as more and more are planned, announced and attended. Here at Beat will also love it as we get to open the latest offerings for the Spring Summer Collections, this week new in are Brutus, Merc and Trojan.

Brutus are celebrating their 50th Birthday this year and have truly stuck to the original designs, with the reintroduction of ‘Nevapress’ the forerunner to ‘Stapress’ trousers. There are vintage colours and designs on ‘Trimfit’ shirts and Denim Jackets to follow. This collection is spot on and is going to have a lot of interest. In fact, one of our regular customers, Tony, who has almost all of the Brutus shirts, snapped up five of this collection before we could get it steamed and ready to go into the shop.  Find out more at https://brutus.com/

Merc is the closest we get to mainstream high street, I know some people don’t like Merc due to its wider appeal, however I feel with this collection they may have redeemed themselves. As with Brutus, Merc have revisited their designs and cuts of the 60s, to finish these off they have introduced colours and patterns which make them stand out as statement pieces that capture British Subculture Scene.

Trojan Clothing is a combination of the best of Lambretta and Brutus with the outcome of producing their own brand of Mod, Skinhead and Casual wear. The Trojan designers were formerly involved with Lambretta Clothing and over the years the brands have worked hand-in-hand. However, they are now a Company in their own right and sell under the name ‘Ska and Soul Clothing’ and I feel this new name sums up their clothing very well.  We like the quality of Trojan Clothing and the little touches like use of the Trojan Head Logo, which is discreetly stitched in a colour coordinated cotton into clothing adds to the brand. Trojan is a quality brand at an affordable price.

Since opening in 2013 we have been careful to choose suppliers who have taken on board and stayed true to what Mods, Skinheads and you our customers have been asking for. Those suppliers whose aim is to cash in on the major high street audience by using Paisley and Mod Stripes on ‘Fashion Items’ we have dropped as we feel they don’t get the Scene and don’t deserve to take space in Beat.

We also have the Spring Summer ranges of Gabicci, Relco and Warrior clothing.  Art Gallery Knitwear and Shirts will be available mid to end of April.

Blighty Beat App

We have been busy over the past few months with our massive sale, with 50% off all our clothing and the remainder of our Merc Clothing being further reduced to 75% off retail prices.  Fargo Village held its first Vintage Fair, which took place at the weekend.  We had a stall selling off all of our vintage clothing that we have acquired over the years, initially we had planned to sell in the shop but alas we ran of room as our Brands of clothing grew and we ventured into selling footwear too.

For those of you who are looking for a bargain we still have a good selection of Merc T-Shirts, Polo Shirts, Jumpers and other tops, all still at 75% off.  This needs to go to make room for our Spring/Summer Collections which are arriving thick and fast.

In addition to all the usual chaos you would expect from a busy shop, we have also been working in the background on ways to communicate with you, to get offers and new product information out as it arrives.  For those of you who follow us on Facebook, Twitter or on our website, we have now developed an App.  This will put all our information in one place and enable us to offer the best deals to you our customer.

We are planning on adding new features to the App like ‘click and collect’ and eventually a full on-line shop.  But for now we have features such as coupons and we think best of all a scratch card.  This is fun to do, but best of all it gives you 50% chance of winning a discount on your purchase or if you choose a later purchase.
