Weekend Offender: for rebels of the weekend
Today we are talking about British brand which obtained different subcultures’ recognition all around the world
Set up in Cardiff as a side project in 2004, Weekend Offender was the brainchild of Sam Jones and Rhydian Powell, and just under ten years later the pair continues to expand the brand from the label’s new flagship store in London’s Soho. No-nonsense, functional, bold; stylish, playful, assured – the clothes remain like the customers. Across the UK – in the pubs, in the clubs and at the football – Weekend Offender has become a go-to brand for lads at the sharper end of the terrace, earning a priceless word-of-mouth reputation and exceeding sales nationwide.
Merge of cultures
The British company draws inspiration form nightlife, street fashion and different subcultures. Weekend Offender clothing is equally perfect for street strolls and night parties. Company founders mention that it’s about making no-nonsense, functional clothes with an insubordinate twist – and it’s catching on. One of them was raised on acid-house wave in 1990s. The other one was always not indifferent to guitars and drums noises from Manchester bands. That’s why lyrics of The Stone Roses band are sometimes mentioned in Weekend Offender items. By the way, the name of the 1989 song «I Wanna Be Adored» is still written on brand tags.
An important element of brand’s products is a hash mark with «Admit nothing 1988» written on it. This was taken from old cinema tickets; «Admit one» means a single pass to the theatre. Later on, British football fans made another version of this inscription when they meant to be silent after being arrested. Nevertheless, Weekend Offender founders point out that they do not divide their customers by any criteria. People who love hanging out, attending football matches and simply having a good time do wear Weekend Offender. You can find a wide variety of Weekend Offender clothing at our store on Petrovsky Boulevard 21.
