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.

Ska & Soul Autumn Tops

Once September hits it’s usually a signal that the new Autumn collections start to arrive in store. We’ve enjoyed the Gabicci range arriving and the Trojan Records. It’s now time to welcome the Ska & Soul Autumn Tops to the mix.

The Ska & Soul items are always popular from their pique polos to logo tees and as we leave Summer we start to stock more and more knitted polos and cardigans.

These look super sharp, smart as and also a little warmer.

Gabicci Vintage Autumn Collection

One of the brands that people love and are drawn straight to when they visit QuadropheniaAlley is Gabicci Vintage. It has a classic vintage look that is so popular. If you’ve had Gabicci before you know the fit is exactly the same from item to item and the quality is incredible.

Just before the Brighton Mod Weekender we received our Gabicci Vintage Autumn Collection and as it was the new range we sold so much of it that we didn’t get a chance to show any of it. This past week we’ve managed to restock everything and it’s now available to order online if you missed out.

Brighton Mod Weekender Highlights

What a weekend it was, an amazing atmosphere, great scooters, awesome music and the perfect weather.

This year’s Brighton Mod Weekender was a little bit more special as it was the 40th Anniversary of Quadrophenia. With events held on the Friday at The Grand Hotel including Q&As and then on the Sunday there was an event held on Brighton Pier the weekend was jam packed.

We ourselves had live music out the front of our shop from A Band Called Malice, they played an acoustic set for about an hour and the crowds loved it.

Here’s a little video we put together showing some of the highlights from Quadrophenia Alley.

The whole weekend was amazing and hopefully we created a fun environment for people to enjoy. The new restaurant opposite opened just for the weekend where they sold pie n mash, Quadrophenia pale ale, bacon rolls and lots of other food for the crowds.

With the shop being so busy stocks have been running low on lots of items but we should now have most things back in stock and can be ordered here – On Quadrophenia Alley

First Arrivals from Trojan Records

One of the key brands for us in our Quadrophenia Alley shop is Trojan Records. It’s a range that customers head straight to and one that people love to know when new stock arrives.

That is exactly what we’re doing right now, these are the First Arrivals from Trojan Records. It was delivered yesterday afternoon and we’ve already started selling items so if something grabs you don’t wait.

The collection is made up of tees, polos and shirts. All of the items are very limited.


Our Exclusive 40th Anniversary Quadrophenia Alley Tees

Quadrophenia was released back in 1979, so those quick at math will work out that 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic British film. A film that became a cult hit and one that people quote and remember fondly.

To mark this occasion we wanted to do something special, there are already events and gigs going on over the August Bank Holiday weekend in Brighton and we have also designed a few items to celebrate.

The fact that we’re right on the famous alley when Jimmy and Steph kept themselves busy gives us the chance to create something unique.

Introducing Our Exclusive 40th Anniversary Quadrophenia Alley Tees.

Completely designed by ourselves and they’re available on two different colours, classic white and light grey.

The feedback we’ve been getting on them has been very positive and they’ve been selling really quickly in our shop…on Quadrophenia Alley.

Professionally printed on a superb pure cotton crew neck t shirt these hold up to anything you throw at them.

You can order yours via our website

New Lambretta Tees

We’ve had a new delivery of Lambretta tees, perfect designs and colours for the weekend.

Lambretta tees are such a good item for us. The designs are unique and the colours stand out well against the others. The price is really good at £20 and if a visitor is looking for something as a present then it’s the ideal item.

Last week we had a range of New Lambretta Tees which consists of new styles and bright bold colours. All of these are available in our #QuadropheniaAlley shop and also online.

Here are the new designs.

Lambretta SS5139 Union Scooter Print T Shirt

A great design showing off a Lambretta on the front. The Moss colour is such a great unique colour. Any tees with a scooter on fly out the door.

Lambretta SS5146 Scooter Print T Shirt

Another scooter design but this one has classic ‘Mod’ words filling in the scooter. Words like Brighton, Carnaby Street, We Are The Mods etc. Again it comes in grey, navy and a Cool Blue.

Lambretta SS5147 Cityscape Print T Shirt

We love this design, it features a scooter in front of a London street scene. For visitors this is a fun design to give as a gift.

Lambretta SS5149 Way of Life Print T Shirt

This is proving to be the most popular design especially the Carnelian colour which is new for the SS19 collection.

We stock a lot of other Lambretta items so have a little browse of our website.

Gabicci Vintage Collection

Gabicci was established in 1973 and is perhaps best known for its classic Mod Polo Shirts. Gabicci shirts and polos shirts were a Mod icon of the Seventies and Eighties.

Gabicci is set firmly into Mod culture and is a firm favourite. They produce timeless classics that have a great fit and look super sharp. It’s a brand that people message us all the time asking to put pieces to one side for them when they next come in.

If you want any of the collection you need to get in there quickly.

So to give a taste here are our top picks so far.

Gabicci Vintage Jackson SS Knitted Polo Shirt

This is such a popular polo shirt, classic style and looks good all year round. This season it’s available in 6 different colours.

Gabicci Vintage V42GM04 Burbage SS Stripe Polo Shirt

This is a new design for this collection. Taking inspiration from previous stripped polos this looks really smart. It’s available in 3 different colours and each one really looks good.

There is so much more to the Gabicci Vintage Collection so pop into our Brighton shop or visit us online.

Exclusive Quadrophenia Alley Polo Shirts

Showing off our Exclusive Quadrophenia Alley Polo Shirts plus a brand new colour.

As part of the items we stock in our Brighton shop we have an EXCLUSIVE collection of items, mugs, pins, tees and polo shirts.

All of these items have been designed by ourselves and we’re really proud of them and love it when people pick one of our items to purchase.

One of the most popular ranges is the classic tipped polo shirts, we stock them all year round and every few months we like to add a new colour. As Easter is on it’s way we thought it was the perfect time to add that colourway for the people visiting.

Ska and Soul New Arrivals

This past week the deliveries have started arriving for the new season and with what has felt like a change in the weather this couldn’t have come at a better time. The middle of February is also the time when events start happening in Brighton such as the Half Marathon, the Tattoo convention and other things so lots of people visiting #QuadropheniaAlley.

Today’s post is all about the Ska and Soul New Arrivals.

This collection is made up of knitted polos, tees, and there is more still to arrive. To give a little taste of what you’ll find here are a couple of our top picks.

Ska & Soul SS2251 Stripe Cable Fine Gauge Polo

A beautiful knitted polo shirt that has stripe detail down the sides and also a cable knit detail to add a contrast to the front. Two classic looking polos that will good year after year.

Ska & Soul SS2253 Jacquard Target Fine Gauge T-Shirt

We’re big fans of this design. Taking the classic roundel and placing it on a fine gauge tee. It makes a nice change from the normal target t-shirts. We think this is going to be the big favourite this year.

Ska & Soul SS2277 Mod Logo T Shirt

The iconic Ska & Soul logo tee, this time there are two new designs. The Union Jack which is always very popular and the target design. Which one is your favourite?
