Merc Clothing was established on Carnaby Street in 1967 when London was in full swing. The brand epitomized the look of the 60s mod and was also a favourite with the skinheads and later on with the casuals. Merc clothes have a reputation for British style and quality that continues to this day. For example, the Merc Harrington is head and shoulders above all other designers that have attempted to replicate the classic jacket and it is the same situation with the parka, none can compare to Merc’s Tobias.
Merc’s tartan lined wonders, quality polos and famous trousers can be the bread and butter of any stylish get-up and will have you bringing the taste of an era of fashion into your millennium life.
However, the 60s were in the past; how could Merc possibly have given their timeless style a modern update? Well those bright sparks down in London town only went and brought us a premium menswear collection, Merc W1. Merc W1 focuses on luxury fabric, attention to detail and precision cuts. It is a luxury line but don’t let that label fool you into thinking you need to break the bank to be able to afford it, Merc W1 isn’t too costly and still retains the unique Merc mod style. The range includes paisley print shirts and comfortable parkas, perfect for those willing to go above and beyond in order to stand out from the crowd.
This season’s Merc releases are a mixture of everything from upbeat modern t-shirts to well-tailored suits to the classics such as the Harrington and the Tobias fishtail parka. This quality London clobber is one of this season’s must haves.
There really is no getting around the fact that Merc is one of the finest names in British fashion; retro style, a rich heritage yet still looking ahead. Merc’s future looks just as bright and eventful as it’s past.
