A is for Albam....

The Observer Magazine recently featured us in their A to Z of Fashion for the coming year.

"Alastair Rae and James Shaw were so frustrated when they couldn't find the perfect white T-shirt that they set up their own menswear label, Albam, to fill the gap. Featuring casual classics at affordable prices, Albam's small, but perfectly formes collection includes well-made essentials that regular blokes won't shy away from, such as indigo straight-leg jeans for £70; a sellout Fisherman's cagoule for £160, and striped merino sweaters for £75. New for spring is a dapper blazer, available February. And, yes, there's the perfect White T-shirt. It's made from Egyptian cotton and costs a very reasonable £25."

Arena featured our Fisherman's Cagoule and Straight Leg Jean

Arena have featured our Fisherman's Cagoule and Straight Leg Jean in their February issue. They also wrote:

" James Shaw and Alastair Rae set up Albam last year with the idea of selling the perfect capsule wardrobe - jeans, T-shirt, shirt and jumper - by mail order. Since then, things have expanded rapidly with the introduction of outerwear, accessories and the launch of their first shop, in London's Beak Street. "

" The duo take pride in seeking out small, specialist factories to ensure they achieve a high level of finish on pieces which are fairly priced. "We have a simple aesthetic that is part Scandinavian, part East-coast American." Says Shaw."
