and who’ll trust in you… in your autumn of tomorrow
There’s something instinctively beautiful in how things fit naturally together, instantly catching the eye, intuitively feeding the soul. The new range of multi-check shirts by Tuk Tuk all do the business but one in particular stands out, takes your breath away, rekindles all those lost tribal instincts, a perfect combination of colours giving you the definitive look of autumn 2016.
First up it’s the accent colours that draw you in, that classic football shirt mix – claret and blue – Burnley, West Ham, Villa, creating the framework, offset with the upfront blend of rustic gold, mellow cider orange and a milky yellow midday sun.
It captures the essence and unruliness of this time of year – nature in transition – when summer begins to fade into a dim and distance glow and autumn is ushered in with the crackle of crisp leaves underfoot and the whisper of cold air bringing with it the promise of those long dark nights ahead. The football season starts to get serious and clothes are changed to suit the climate (it’s weird when you think about it that the primary function of clothes is basically a response to the weather), fashion becomes more focused in anticipation of the floodlights being turned on before half-time.
Tuk Tuk have created these check flannel shirts in five distinct colours but it’s the oatmeal check combo that touches base with every sub-cult worth a buttoned down shirt – rude boys and Brutus loving skins, scooter boys reliving pass glories on coastal roads and pumped up mods spinning and grinning to the Crow’s crazed acid-tinged psychedelic northern soul classic. And the seasonally adjusted dressers too of course. It is a little bit extra special.
