The Watch List - Weekend Offender

Weekend Offender was founded as a side project from the independent outlet ‘A Two’ in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales in 2004. A select group of prints and designs were produced and sold by Rhydian and the owners of the store. This later expanded into a full clothing range including polos and graphic tees.

I was out and about in Central London with my friend Shanice trying to pick up some bargains in the sales. Usually we hit all the high street stores like H&M, Gap and the such to try and get our hands on some cheap basics, then we make our way into the lesser travelled backstreets of the West End. We had just left The Hideout and we came across a store I've never seen before. It was Weekend Offender. Naturally I turned to Shanice to find out if she knew anything about it but she said "no" and asked if we should go in. Call it curiosity but I said "yes" and in we went.

The store itself is what we'd expect from a modern day retailer, clean lines, minimalist so nothing distracts from what's on sale. When we walked in we were greeted by a friendly sales assistant and we proceeded to inspect the wares. I was very impressed by the large range of graphic tees on show in the middle of the store and the range of outerwear as well. As we made our way round this table I spotted a bright yellow jacket and was drawn to it.

This coat to be specific. Constructed using wax cotton with contrasting navy stitching, tan buttons and leather detailing it's very stylish. What I liked most was the fit of the jacket, it fell mid thigh and the sleeve length was on point. The jacket also comes in navy if you're a person who shies away from bright colours. I'm really excited to see what Weekend Offender will do in future because right now it appears to be on the up and up.
