WEEKEND OFFENDER: THE BRAND FOR THE FOOTBALL FAN
THE NEW GUYS ON THE BLOCK FOR FESTIVALS, FOOTY GAMES AND TRUE TROUBLEMAKERS
The snap of the latex glove pinging against the doorman's wrist, followed by the howls of surprised anguish, (or delight) will be all you can hear echoing around event arenas in the not-so-distant future. Security at festivals is so tight these days it won't be long until full-cavity searches are made compulsory and the only way to sneak your vitamins into a Kula Shaker concert is if you either tunnel like Bronson in The Great Escape or catapult yourself over the fence like Costner in that Robin Hood movie that technically wasn't as good as the Russell Crowe Robin Hood, but way more enjoyable (Timely references, thanks. Hey is Kula Shaker still going? Whatever happened to those guys?).
Now there is a brand that stands up for the silent majority who won't stand for mandatory anal violation. Weekend Offender offers unique, no-nonsense clobber with what they refer to as "an insubordinate twist."
For example if you're looking for new and inventive ways to slip your vitamin pills past the Phil Mitchell-esque lump on the door, the Weekend Offender Suarez jacket has a tiny zip pocket located on the shoulder blade. If you were wearing it to the match it has a convenient credit card stash pocket on the sleeve, velcro fastened. Ideal for keeping your oyster card or ticket stubs handy and secure. The flagship store in Soho also offers 20% discount to anyone that shows their match day ticket. Even Millwall supporters.
Another jacket to look out for in the SS15 collection is called the Rampage. The Rampage in Grass green is shower proof and has a large Section 60 criminal justice public order, woven into the mesh lining. This is not a get out of jail free card by any means, but it will make you aware of what rights you have should you be stopped and searched by the police, or pulled over for doing 120mph the wrong way down a one way street.
Weekend Offender has become a huge hit with festival goers and football fans especially, and with iconic figures such as Liam Gallagher, Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Samuel L Jackson seen championing the brand recently.
