Notes For a Revolution

Mankind is currently bludgeoning his way through a second Middle Ages crisis. We cope by posting petit bourgeois selfies in verite dissaray whilst a tomcat called Tyson coughs up fur balls for fun.

Some will sip on fireside malts and await direction: empathic enlightenment rather than a second industrial strength Renaissance. Another Bernini might be nice but we've yet to catalogue the one we have.

Maybe it will happen on the streets: itís always the streets isnít it Ė those comfortable, kettle friendly cul de sacs that carry us home on a water cannon wave of cabernet cabaret and spine tingling nerve gas. As you read this, someone in a grey hoodie with Athletic stencilled on the front is reclaiming them by tagging your polytunnel in large fluorescent bubble letters. He is a vegan called Jim or James. Or Beth.

Or Both

 

 



Hoodigan (Johnson/Hooper)

Dress For a Revolution

Equally at home on the dancefloor as in the boardroom these pin stripe hoodies are ideal for anyone forced to conform during the week but who likes to cut loose a little at the weekend.

Do YOU see yourself as a rebel - perhaps at heart you're a Tory fundraiser but your friends think YOU vote Green. But - wait!! - it's dress down Friday at the bank and you're on counter duty! What to do when your default setting is smart casual but YOU see yourself as a Trendy Wendy! Laurie Hooper's Hoodigans (from an idea by V.A) could be the answer - slipping into one will enable YOU to let the man YOU call 'The Man' to kiss your ass! - these jackets are so YOU it hurts....

Made from 100% recycled materials and coming in all sizes from Office Mouse Intern to Corporate Fat Cat Flat Track Bully, our hoodigans are ideal for the part of YOU that finds it impossible to compromise....

Phonetic Phlaag In early April 1786 John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, both future presidents of the United States of America, visited Fort Royal Hill at the battlefield at Worcester. Adams wrote Edgehill and Worcester were curious and interesting to us, as scenes where freemen had fought for their rights. The people in the neighborhood appeared so ignorant and careless at Worcester, that I was provoked, and asked. And do Englishmen so soon forget the ground where liberty was fought for? Tell your neighbors and your children that this is holy ground; much holier than that on which your churches stand. All England should come in pilgrimage to this hill once a year.
