This is England

By The Fashion Network MFN Add comments

After the hype of popular TV programme ‘This is England’ came the revival of 80’s ska fashion. Particularly popular in menswear this trend has seen many brands such as Fred Perry and Ben Sherman making a comeback… but there not the only ones.

With some awesome affordable pieces to go towards creating your ska themed wardrobe here are our favourite brands at the moment:

Insight

It’s all about owning the perfect jacket if you want to make this look come together! Insight have a range of different pieces in order to complete this look to suit your personality…

For the more sporty guy why not try the ‘Keeping it Tight’ track jacket available in red and black. Try wearing completely zipped up under the chin with a pair of skinny denim jeans and a training shoe.

If you’re aiming for more of a ‘mod’ look why not try the check Harrington coat? Our favourite, this piece would look just the part worn open over a contrasting check shirt (Insight blue and orange check shirt)… button to the top and tuck into your skinny jeans to get the true ‘skinhead’ look.

Finally, for the smarter guy these black tailored trousers are perfect for achieving the look without opting for the more casual denim. Team with a long sleeve check shirt and an unbuttoned Pea coat, and for the more daring fashion goers why not add a pair of red braces and tuck into a pair of burgundy docs.

Ringspun

We love this Peardrop red polo shirt by Ringspun! Its bang on trend whist the printed branding on the back gives it that modern edge! The button down collar is a cool touch and we love the military style detail on the shoulders. Wear sleeves down or roll up for that true 80’s feel! Team with a darker denim skinny jean and matching burgundy docs!

Elvis Jesus

These trendy Elivs Jesus polo shirts do all the work for you! With detail running down the front of both pieces it gives the illusion of braces and the contrasting button down collars make these shirts stand out in a crowd! The Keither navy polo shirt has that extra detail on the back with a red applique design and the brace design is continued down the back on the Kendric white shirt. With these pieces you can achieve that ‘skinhead’ look without even trying! To stick to the theme wear with skinny jeans and an open denim jacket!
