A Story Of Brutus, Dr Martens and Jamaica

Here at Indi Menswear we love a British success story. As yet again Brutus comes up trumps to bring us iconic street style and a new level of cool for lovers of British street subculture. Mods, Skins and Rude Boys listen up! It’s quite a coup to introduce not one but two special edition Brutus Trimfit collections!

The first is the latest collaboration between two fantastic British brands – Dr Martens and Brutus Trimfit. Available from September 1st, this teamwork has brought one of the hottest shirt collections of the year; effortlessly stylish and uber-cool, there are even two mens’ styles to choose from!


The DM5 arrives in a mustard and oxblood check, in keeping with Dr Marten’s age-old colours, while the re-imagining of the timeless Brutus Classic Tartan shirt brings us the DM6 brought bang up-to-date for 2014 in Oxblood with a contrasting mustard check. Exclusive and strictly limited edition, we cannot stress enough the importance of these masterpieces for your wardrobe. With last years allocation selling out within 24 hours, get em’ while they’re still around!

The 2nd special edition collection comes from none other than the home of Usain Bolt, a bottle or two of your favourite Rum, a paradise for 18-30 year old party animals and the home of the original Rude Boys – the beautiful island of Jamaica! With the new Brutus Jamaican signature shirts, it’s time to celebrate like an original Rude Boy, those doyens of Jamaican cool, in green, gold and black. Available in short and long sleeve, these patriotic colours have been aligned into a stylish checked Brutus Trimfit shirt.


As this is Brutus, impeccable quality and design, comes as standard. Crafted with the precision of a surgeon, all the shirts are shaped and darted for the perfect fit, and feature the iconic 3 finger button-down collar and box pleat.

These combined values of style, craftsmanship and innovation have brought together such titans of subculture to create shirts that you will want to wear for years; the perfect shirt that never goes out of style. In fact, if you don’t get at least one of these shirts you will be Ska’d For Life!
