We like a bit of free stuff now and again, especially if football, fashion and the 80s are involved. So here we have a couple of free magazines available in two formats. Firstly the quarterly Umbrella is in Download form and can be viewed at http://www.umbrellamagazine.co.uk/ This is the fifth installment and this issue contains articles on American Football, Boiled Eggs, The Frankfurt Motor Show, The Foreign Legion, London Store Sefton, Knitwear, Shirts, Jackets and Boots.
All Four previous issues can still be viewed on the site here http://issuu.com/umbrellamagazine/docs
For those who still like the smell of uncoated stock, look no further than Halcyon Magazine. Produced in high numbers and distributed freely to Style Houses and Coffee Bars throughout the North West, this issue is the first and is aimed at me and you. Someone who likes his Fooball, Clobber, Pugilism and Music. So here we have a Carl Froch interview along with a small piece on 80s Casuals from yours truly. Peter Hooton discusses 'The End', while local group 'The Loud' try on some of Weavers Doors finest attire. Our best wishes go out to the guys behind Halcyon as it can't be too easy publishing a free Magazine in todays climate.
