Casual Military Style: New Overshirts At 80s CC
New overshirt styles like the Marshall Artist Molecular Overshirt give a nod to the past & the present with updated fabrics & military inspiration.
Military inspired outerwear continues to have a strong connection within the casual subculture that spans the last 30 years. The 90s & the noughties saw a massive rise in outerwear on the casual scene. It was all about military inspired silhouettes, loads of pockets & performance fabrics that could withstand whatever the British weather had to offer on a cold November’s evening on the terraces. Worn by the ticket touts & the top boys, whether it’s a field jacket, a cagoule, an overhead smock, something super technical or a classic overshirt. The fact is you just can’t beat a good jacket. Some people just don’t get it, but if you’re an outerwear fanatic, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Our latest selection of overshirt styles like the Marshall Artist Molecular Overshirt captures all that colouful outerwear culture we associate with the passion for having a good jacket.
