Teaming up with Miles Kane seemed like the perfect partnership after some shared passions. As well as a fan of full adidas tracksuits, Miles was interested in reviving some of his favourite Italian sportswear looks from Fila. The Birkenhead born artist rose to fame with numerous bands such as The Little Flames, The Rascals & The Last Shadow Puppets alongside The Artic Monkey’s frontman Alex Turner. Now spanning over 10 years, his thriving solo career has seen him tour and play alongside the likes of Liam Gallagher, Stone Roses, The Arctic Monkey’s & Kasabian. With track collaborations with Mark Ronson, the Modfather (Paul Weller) & top 10 UK albums, Miles Kane is both a highly respected name on the homegrown British indie music scene and renowned for his dressing style.

Miles has collaborated with some heritage brands on numerous menswear ranges and was also voted one of the top 50 best dressed men in GQ Magazine. After some “direct messaging” between 80s Casual Classics head honcho, Neil Primett & Miles Kane, a mutual respect was formed. With Neil’s background & passion for the UK’s indie music scene, casual sportswear & everything else in between, the fuse was lit & a very select retro collaboration was born.
