You're Welcome/I'm Sorry

New Farm Tactics T's and Crew Neck Sweats

(My look directly into the thicket, you'll be lost for days....)

Look at this texture!! New French Terry knit crew necks from that wiley hippie-haired Kyle at Farm Tactics. These have a great slubby texture to them and a super soft, almost velour look and feel to them. Avail. in Grey, Navy and Maroon (my favorite). In the pic below, I am wearing a Large (Small-Large Avail.). These run slightly small, as have Tactic's tops in the past. $112!

Also in now: The new fall colors of the famous Farm Tactics slub t's. The fits been lengthened just a little bit. The great 100% slub cotton fabric remains the same. $35

Introducing: Universal Works

“Universal Works” - It's about good honest menswear, it's about quality garments with a great fit. There is no great vision or message, no target markets, just garments for everyone, clothing to look stylish in because you the wearer makes it so, clothing you want to wear, clothing you will look good in.

After many years of working in the “fashion” industry we wanted to make something we were proud of, not over-designed, but well cut and craftsman-made, not mass-produced.

From a background of great British working clothes and outdoor clothes, we use honest, natural fabrics and yarns, often using up dead stock fabrics that would otherwise be wasted.

We work with highly skilled people in small factories who we have known for a long time and know what they are doing. They all make great quality garments, which is never the cheapest way to make stuff but we think it's the best way."
