The Fashion Network took a trip down to the Red Rum Club in Fallowfield, for the launch party of Togs and Clogs, a website dedicated to selling men’s fashion and lifestyle goods. Togs and Clogs is a new business venture for Nigel Eley, Leonard Hamilton and Tom Summerfield, the guys who are also behind the successful Northern Lights Agency.
After arriving fashionably late to their own launch party, the Togs and Clogs trio made there way around the room meeting, greeting and generally making sure everyone was having a good time; a situation helped by the free drinks that they had laid on for the guests. The venue also lent itself to this, because if you haven’t been to the Red Rum Club, it is the sort of underground establishment that once it starts to fill up cant help but create a bit of a party atmosphere. The party atmosphere was amplified further when Hamilton, Summerfield and Eley took to the decks to provide an eclectic mix of tunes to keep the dance floor moving.
Managing to steal a few minutes with Tom, he told TFN that Togs and Clogs was born out of the belief that there was a genuine gap in the market. There are plenty of websites that sell just men’s clothing, or just a single type of men’s ‘lifestyle product’. The team firmly believe that there is a space for a website that offers the young fashionable gent, with a discerning appreciation for the more stylish things in life, to be able to get all of these things in one place.
