This Spring we introduce another quality brand into our small portfolio of labels. 12thMan has gained a high regard in its short lifespan. An initial collection included a collaboration with the Massimo Osti Studio and a Limited Edition release of four Osti designed T-Shirts.

12thMan is the project of an independent studio based in Bologna, Italy. They produce limited editions garments, using selected fabrics sourced from the best Italian suppliers and experimenting with both innovative and traditional dyeing and finishing techniques.

The 12thMan concept is one of blending Italian sartorial heritage with technical innovation by sourcing and selecting high quality fabrics which are then refined with both experimental and traditional dyeing and washing processes.

Handmade dyeing techniques are also employed in the manufacturing process making each 12thMan piece a unique one.

The focus of its S/S 2011 range, which includes t-shirts, polo-shirts and sweatshirts, both in Tinto Filo and Tinto Capo, features simple but refined construction and 100% natural fabrics which provide constant comfort and functionality.

12thMan garments, which are offered in a presentation box along with a signed certificate of authenticity, are entirely designed and manufactured in Italy.

80s Casuals are one of only 14 stockists of the brand in the U.K.

Pics of the collection will follow soon.
