London brand Thorobred present their new lookbook featuring product from their second collection ‘V.1.2′, which includes tees, hoods & crewnecks, button-ups, windbreakers, and snapback caps.
It seems like the brand have ironed out most of the kinks that in all honesty I thought were all to prevalent in their first collection, immediately noticeable in the vast improvement in the quality of the caps for example. Most of the tees are type/logo based, with a splash of masonic imagery, but they all look pretty good – the College, Paradise, and Red Leaves designs being my favourite. Accompanying that are the two pullover hoods and a simple ‘block logo’ raglan crewneck, available in black and green. The Patriot pullover is my pick of the bunch, and goes well with the screen-printed ‘One Nation’ windbreaker, available in 5 colours.
The three plaid ‘Rudy’ shirts passed me by, and for me don’t represent anything unique enough to consider purchasing, but it’s great to see the brand include a full range of clothing from the outset. Finally, the collection also includes three snapback caps in a range of colours – the block logo and ‘One Nation’ offerings being my favourite. One thing I don’t quite get is the use of both Thorobred and Thoroughbred across the range – which is it? Other than that, I’m fairly impressed. It’s an ambitious collection for a relatively new brand, but it shows a lot of promise, and there are definitely a few strong pieces.
The full range is available to purchase now through Thorobred London online, or from the A.IN.T store (253 Portobello Rd, London, W11 1LR).
