Olympic Torch in VQ

Olympic Torch in VQ

On Monday 25th June, the Olympic Torch Relay was carried through Victoria Quarter as part of its marathon journey around the country.

The Torch passed down the centre’s Grade 11* listed County Arcade at 7.30am, one of the few occasions along its route that takes it inside a building.
VQ Centre Director, John Bade commented, “It was a great privilege to be chosen as one of the venues for the Torch Relay, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to really feel part of the Olympics.”
“County Arcade is one of the most visually impressive parts of VQ,” he continued, “and was a stunning setting for that part of the relay, with hundreds of people lining the street to cheer it on."

Touch Sensitive at Oliver Sweeney

Touch Sensitive at Oliver Sweeney
The new leather gloves Swipe is the latest addition to the Oliver Sweeney accessories range.
Swipe combines technology with style – a sartorial highlight for commuters and a must have on those winter mornings.

We’ve seen touch gloves before, but only those with the silver fibre insert on the forefinger, so Oliver Sweeney have taken a classic lambskin glove and combined it with TouchTec™ technology within the leather. The entire palm outer is conductive allowing you to use your touch screen device with ease and a microfibre fleece lining creates a snug inner.

As the first and only retailer currently selling this type of glove in the UK, Oliver Sweeney have really put thier stamp on it: tramline ‘S’ stitch detailing, a lime green corner insert on the left hand, an embossed Oliver Sweeney logo and construction stitching that makes an ‘S’ shape on the thumb.

Swipe gloves are £99 and are available from the Oliver Sweeney store in County Arcade.

Red, White & Shoe at Jefferey West

Red, White & Shoe

Could there be a better time to be British? We’ve flown the flag for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, it’s the run up to the London Olympic Games and Jeffery-West celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.

In true dapper tradition, the luxury footwear brand are stepping out in anniversary style with the limited edition ‘Albion’ Union Jack Oxford Shoes, priced at £295*.

Goodyear welted and made in England this lace up Oxford is a patriotic salute to the British footwear industry as well as a fitting benchmark for Jeffery-West’s on going success.
Jeffery-West is a renowned luxury men's footwear and accessories label for today's modern dandy, combining the unmistakeable quality of traditional English made products with truly decadent, modern design and detail. Jeffery-West is one of menswear’s best kept secrets, and their shoes are often seen on the paths less travelled!
Just like their re-workings of traditional footwear styles, Jeffery-West also offer a range of traditional gentlemen’s accessories, all handmade in England, but equally all re-imagined to compliment the themes and styles of the footwear. With an impressive and eclectic range that add a touch of individual imagination to any wardrobe, think English pewter cufflinks, leather gloves with red silk lining, croc print leather ipad covers, statement rings, and belts  fastened with devil or serpent pewter buckles, whilst black walking canes are topped with silver cobra heads or ball and claws. 
A twenty first century experience, yet inspired by Regency dandies, twentieth century subculture and pop culture, literary and filmic references and a whole swath of swashbucklers, wits, hell raisers….all influence and inspire the Jeffery-West designs and give their names to styles that last, including Keith Richards, Steve Marriot, Terence Stamp, Oliver Reed, Peter O’Toole, Brian Jones, Jarvis Cocker, Bryan Ferry, Roger Moore, Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Bram Stoker and Beau Brummell, to name a few.
So why not follow in the footsteps of recently donned Jeffery-West iconic dapper chaps and take a lead from Mickey Rourke, David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sylvester Stallone, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, Jarvis Cocker and Bryan Ferry, and visit the theatre of coveted style heaven.
Be ahead and don’t look back, step out in union jack………..
