It Must Be a Sign

2020 will live long in the memory for everyone, the year when life changed for the whole World. For us on Quadrophenia Alley it has also meant that as a business we’ve changed too, you may have seen across social media that our username has changed to QuadropheniaAlley or QuadAlley.

Although lockdown and being closed for several months was extremely harmful for our business, we’re lucky that we could still trade online. Trying to look at the silver-lining is that this time gave us the opportunity to decorate our shop, a huge lick of paint, some new memorabilia on the walls and a brand new sign for the front of the shop.

The eagle eyed will notice that the name has also changed, welcome to Quadrophenia Alley, the name Bone Clothing has been removed. The reality is that everyone simply called it ‘Quad Alley’ or ‘Quadrophenia Alley’ so it made sense. Although the lockdown was a massive kick, it did allow us the opportunity to make these changes.

We still sell the same great products from brands you love, Lambretta, Gabicci, Merc, Ska & Soul, Trojan Records and more.

We know things are a little strange right now, but hopefully you’ll get to visit the alley soon. Thank you to those that have supported us and remember you can order items from our website with free delivery on items over £30.

What to Ask for this Christmas: Christmas Gift Ideas for Him

As we approach the most wonderful time of the year, thoughts start to turn to Christmas and the the lists for what to buy people start to get compiled. Whether you’ll be shopping for you husband, dad, boyfriend, brother, son or friend picking the right present is important. It can be a stressful time to get it right.

We’ve a range of gifts and items for that special someone, allowing you to focus and enjoy Christmas.

Bamboo Scarf

A gorgeous scarf is always a welcome gift, very rarely do we buy scarves for ourselves, making it the perfect gift. Bamboo is a wonderful fabric, it’s really soft and more importantly keeps you nice and warm. There are two trains of thought on picking a scarf, you can go for a simple plain colour or a nice patterned one. Check out our Swole Panda collection.

Leather Wallet

Perfect for dad or grandad to keep all his cards safe and protected. Especially if he used to enjoy or still enjoys his Lambretta scooter. A classic leather wallet, that he’ll be proud to show off and will last him a great number of years. Available in two colours.

Lightweight Gilet

The ideal item for Autumn, a nice warm padded gilet. When you need to keep your body this is perfect. It’s not too bulky so it can worn under a coat, so if the person you’re buying this for someone who commutes then they will love this. Order yours here.

Crew Neck Jumper

Nothing feels quite a nice as a warm lambswool jumper in the colder months. You can’t got wrong with a beautiful crew neck jumper, cosy for the Christmas Day activities, smart for the day in the office or ideal on the Boxing Day walk. From the classic blues to a vibrant red we have you covered in the style stakes. Gant Superfine Lambswool Jumpers.

Bamboo Socks

Socks are one of those items that guys moan about receiving but the true is we secretly enjoy it, if we didn’t receive them as gifts we’d never buy them ourselves. For ultimate luxury these bamboo ones are really comfortable, soft and wear really well. Over the past couple of years bamboo ones have become more popular than cotton ones. Swole Panda Bamboo Socks.

Wearing Knitwear this Season: Peter Gribby

One of the key items in Autumn or Winter is knitwear, it’s the common go to item that everyone enjoys. Adding a layer of warmth without being bulky. The perfect extra comfort when indoors and another barrier under your coat when outdoors.

As you’d expect we’re fully stocked with knitwear, ranging from turtle necks to crew, full zip to half zip and lots of choice of colours and patterns. Everyone’s taste is different, after all it would be boring if we all liked the same things.

Peter Gribby Knitwear

Peter Gribby is a family run company that makes classic simple knitwear, from crew to v neck and some added zip necks too. They are all very well made and come in both lambswool and cotton and a wonderful Autumnal palette of colours.

With colours set for Autumn such as sage, amber, caramel and redcurrent these also work to add some colour to your everyday workwear. Break up that jean and shirt outfit with a crew neck jumper.

The treat with these is that they’re not bulky, they don’t weigh you down meaning that if a blazer is needed for a meeting one of the Peter Gribby items can be worn underneath and you won’t feel like you’re wearing a puffer jacket.

One of the comments we get when it comes to lambswool jumpers is the fact they they are often hand-wash only but the Peter Gribby range is all machine washable. You can pop these in the wash at 30* and it saves so much hassle.

All of the Peter Gribby Knitwear is available at £60 or 2 for £100, perfect to treat yourself or to start buying for Christmas.

Stunning patterns and designs that are really catching the eye in our shop window. All the shirts are 100% cotton and a nice slimmer fitting. This just allows the shirt to look better on and gives it a shape that flatters the person wearing it.

A stunning bee and flower design, the golden bee adding a splash of colour. That golden colour is also repeated in small ways such as the colour of the inside of the cuffs.

Guide London 75214 Deep Floral Print Shirt

The classic Autumnal colours, those rusts and reds look beautiful in this design. Worn under a favourite piece of knitwear or under a blazer this will look amazing.

You can see the full Guide London Shirts either in our shop or online.

Adding Layers with Baileys Knitwear

It seems that Autumn has hit hard this week, the rain, the wind and the cold mornings. Too warm for overcoats and scarves but too cold for a simple shirt. This is the perfect time to discover and fall in love with layering.

Layering allows you to be ready for whatever the British weather decides to throw at us, keeping you toasty for the morning or evening commute and then allowing you to remove a layer once you get to the office.

A turtle neck jumper is the ideal item to use for layering. Pop a simple t-shirt underneath you’ve got a classic look, a look that was good enough for Daniel Craig in James Bond.

Now to start the day when it’s a little bit colder, adding another piece of knitwear over the top adds instant warmth but might be too bulky for some. The easy solution is to wear a blazer of coat into the office and once there you can remove it and still look smart.

Just like when you wear shirts you can make a real statement with the colour you pick. Keep it simple with a navy or black or bring your look to life with a burgundy or red.

Here are the Baileys turtle necks that we have in stock, and you can order any of them online.
