The Weather Report - July

Peregrine Clothing

SUMMER SUN

What is summer without an al fresco party that plays out beneath grey skies while people shield their drinks from drizzle and you shiver in shorts?

Pragmatism (i.e. checking a weather app now and then) beats dressing for the day you hope will happen. But you can still keep your (beer) glass half full.

For the most optimistic among you, we present our classic unbeatable, plain tees. Made in England from 100% cotton, they are breathable and stylish.

For the glass half empty types we also have a range of lighter cotton knits - including our Milton Sweatshirt made from Recover recycled plastic and cotton. Available in Navy and Grey they compliment almost any outfit and are great to throw on when the clouds drift past the sun.

And lastly, we have those of you that WILL have a BBQ no matter what the weather. Whilst your family and friends shelter inside, you brave the elements. Make sure you are wearing our Carlyle Shell jacket, made from Millerain wax - you will definitely be able to face the Great British downpours.

Our Favourite Dad Jokes for Father's Day

Peregrine Clothing

ad3.jpeg

For years, dad jokes have undoubtedly had a bad rep. Viewed by generations of embarrassed offspring as cringe-worthy, bad taste or just downright crap, so-called dad jokes have never received the comedy kudos they so thoroughly deserve.

But today, all that is about to change…

For this year’s Father’s day we decided to appreciate their cracking sense of humour. Often dry, sarcastic and well, not funny at all, dad jokes aren’t for everyone but here at Peregrine we truly appreciate the genius behind them.

We ran a competition asking you for your top Dad joke and boy did we get some crackers. No Monday morning will ever match up to the morning we spent sifting through the entries! You can find our winner and a selection of our favourites below.

As is customary when dad jokes are involved, prepare to laugh, cry and cringe in equal measure…

What training do you need to be a litter collector ? None, you just pick it up as you go along!

A Roman walks into a bar, sticks two fingers up to the barman and says, "Five beers please."

A furniture store keeps calling me. All I wanted was one night stand.

Dogs can’t operate MRI scanners…. but catscan

My son asked me to stop singing Oasis songs in public… I said maybe

RIP boiled water. You will be mist.

Want to hear a joke about construction? Nah, I'm still working on it.

Dad: Be careful of those trees over there.
Daughter: Why? The sky is clear, there's no chance of lightning.
Dad: I don't know, really... they just look really shady to me.

Peregrine - Our Story

Here at Peregrine we are incredibly proud of our history. Thomas Glover started the family run business in 1796 in Leicestershire. The manufacturing company J.G.Glover has been passed down through eight generations of the Glover Family.

“Every Friday Thomas would travel into Leicester on a horse and cart to collect the spun wool from Montfort knitting mill before taking it back to Wigston to knit it up into jumpers”

Peregrine Clothing was established as a brand in 1956 as a separate entity from the manufacturing business. It is still very much a family brand, Tom Glover, current managing director and designer took over the company in 2003 looking to revitalize the brand during what were challenging times for British clothing manufacturers.

Every step from the very first design to the finishing stitch has been executed here in the UK and we are extremely proud of this. We can control everything about the garment production from start to finish and we have a close working relationship with the team at our Manchester based factory. We want our customers to be excited about where their clothing comes from.

The Classic White Tee

Peregrine Clothing

The plainest and simplest of clothing, a t-shirt is a blank canvas upon which you can paint whatever image of yourself you wish. It’s unpretentious, unassuming and underrated. To celebrate this Peregrine favourite, we turn to four of our favourite style icons who wore the crew neck better than anyone.

Ever wondered how the t-shirt first came about? The t-shirt evolved from undergarments used in the 19th century by cutting one-piece underwear into separate top and bottom garments.  Later on it was coined the name “t-shirt” due to the shape.  The beginning of the t-shirt can really be credited to the U.S. Navy.  The U.S. Navy issued crew-necked, short-sleeved, white cotton undershirts around 1913.  Much like the aviator sunglasses and the leather bomber jacket, it wasn’t long before legions of young men were adopting the style as a symbol of strength, masculinity and just the right amount of rebellion.

Marlon Brando

It was Marlon Brando who really took the t-shirt from workwear of the military to the mainstream market when he appeared in his white crew neck in A Streetcar Named Desire 1951, prompting t-shirt sales to hit a total of $180 million in the U.S that year. How to wear one like Brando? Make sure your sleeves are slightly too short and your trouser waist is just high enough – cigarettes and six-pack optional.

James Dean

We couldn’t write a blog about the classic white tee without mentioning James Dean now, could we?! The undisputed face of teenage rebellion. Dean wore his with Levi’s 501 denim, featuring a straight leg cut and a high rise, as well as tough leather boots with minimal detailing.

Steve Mcqueen

The classic King of Cool, Steve Mcqueen, donned it both on and off our screens. Never has someone made a white t-shirt, black jeans and desert boots look so effortlessly smooth as McQueen. Steve's dressing could be described as a no-nonsense style that is easy to replicate but hard to master. A combination of rugged, well-worn pieces, superb fit and an attitude you can’t buy were the key ingredients to his secret recipe.

Chris Hemsworth

Hemsworth manages to prove that no matter the era, you can’t go wrong with a white tee and dark jeans for that classic American workwear vibe. The t-shirt has definitely stood the test of time and continues to look effortlessly cool.

We are half way through April, which means good weather should finally be on the way! However, as we all know, April is known for its frequent downpours. Not to mention the fact spring seems to be taking its time to even arrive this year, with many of us even seeing snow fall over the weekend.

Enter our top 4 jackets for spring and all that the weather may bring -

Crafted using British Millerain Wax Cotton this shell jacket is as waterproof as it is vibrant. Brand new in our Spring 2019 collection, the Marine Blue adds a pop of colour to brighten up your spring wardrobe. This lightweight jacket will have you covered in the heaviest of April showers.

2. The Oversized Cagoule

The jacket is crafted from Templemoyle Flora Carbon cotton which consists of a layer of waterproof wax sandwiched between two layers of woven cotton giving the jacket a dry, canvassy feel. The hood is lined with brushed cotton and the pockets, situated perfectly on the hip are roomy and stylish.
