John Lennon for english Laundry ( the sleeping giant)
Winter 2013 has arrived
Christopher Wicks was the original creator of all thingsÂ English Laundry, born in Manchester England in his earlyÂ years
found solace sketching shirts and of all things guitars. Wicks obsessed with fashion and music is evident in theÂ unique and distinctive designs in the English Laundry/JohnÂ Lennon sportswear collections.
Steve Kelly (Zacar Wholesale) released theÂ EnglishÂ Laundry brand into Australia in 2003 (also born in Manchester UK) and within twelve months became Myers numberÂ one selling Menswear shirt brand,Â after a successful three years Zacar felt the time had arrived to move away from the major dept stores to build the brand with independent retailers around the country.
English Laundry is the cleaner of the two brands onÂ offer, more traditional plaids and stripes to the gentleman who wants a different shirt without been over the top,Â hidden trims, pearl buttons, taping through the front plackets are the features of the E.L. shirt.
Fit…Fantastic for the Australian male at the target age, not to slim… same fit in every shirt. Size Small-XXXL.
John Lennon for English Laundry….â€The Sleeping Giant.â€
This is the second season Australian retailers have seen the style, art and lyrics of John Lennon. Embracing the vintage paisleys and plaids and prints JohnÂ wore in the 60s, each shirt has the distinctive LennonÂ embroidered caricature. With the success of Lennon shirt sales in Australia J.L. isÂ now becoming 70% of our collections. Keep in mind you dont have to be a â€œRock Starâ€ to wear a Lennon for EL shirt, same fit as the traditional LaundryÂ shirt…. just a great vintage shirt look. WeÂ have now introduced the Lennon art on tees to complement the collection.
