Time for another store visit, courtesy of our pal Richard, situated around Brick Lane's Old Truman Brewery, a cool area to visit in that London as it is, located just a mere stroll from the former site of The Butcher of Distinction store (which I thought was a really unique looking shop) is Number Six, the layout of this place is pretty smart over two levels and I like the one continuous rail of jackets that seems to run forever. The minimal look but with a nice mix of old and new works well for me, as does the recent gallery of 'wet women' ooh err - it's actually an in store photographic exhibition which adds a nice touch. Formed by childhood friends Chris Dacey and Mark Batista and starting out online as 'When We Were Casuals' in 2007 this place seems to have gone from strength to strength, stocking such brands as Garbstore, Heritage Research, Barbour Tokito, Universal Works, Oliver Spencer and old favourites Levis, Ralph Lauren and Clarks and more exclusive offerings such as Mark McNairy and Seil Marschall.
