I don't know where Mat heard of Harry Stedman. To be honest, I don't know how he discovers most of the things he does. He just, does.
I met them first at Jacket Required, with Mat. A quick intro and an especially detailed snoop at their t-shirts.
Later, back at the Truman Brewery for Off The Rails, I finally met Rick - the owner/proprietor/main man. That's not to undersell the work the other guys do - designing, promoting, and selling the range - but Rick is a bit of a one man whirlwind, who you can't fail to like (especially if he chucks a shirt at you to keep).
There range is stellar. Serious heavy denim on show, great staple t-shirts, top American-prep inspired shirts, with the button down collars and little hook on the back.
I just wish I could find the money for that peacoat. Fits like a dream.
Read more about them here, especially the inspiring story of the man behind that name.
