Historically, relations between the Scottish and English have always been occupied to occupier, embarrassing for them because it lasted hundreds of years, and embarrassing for us because when they kicked us out, they were all wearing skirts. Coming together in a more collaborative fashion, D.S.Dundee. Started by a Brit lad and his Scottish buddy, this menswear brand takes inspiration from both Scotland's centuries-old tradition of textiles, and east London's centuries-old tradition of taking the piss out of tradition. Late-dropping Spring/Summer shirts come in two flavours of light, check-patterned 100% Italian cotton: the long-sleeved, slim-cut Warriston (in five varietals, from a yellow Sandstone to a grey Peat), and the more relaxed fit, short-sleeved Dryden, in four patterns including the orange/blue Spring, and the red or blue Loch (throw it on the ground, and your room will be...Nessie!). Stuff to fit out your bottom half includes subtly check-lined trousers made from breathable "Spinker Drill" cotton (invented for the WW2 British Army in Africa), like the navy/sandwood Hamiltons, and the super lightweight Flint/Clay Newingtons; both styles are avail as shorts, alongside the slightly longer-leg, four-patterned "Hoy Plus 2's", possibly named after the cyclist's entitled attitude that he should always be able to get as many people into parties as he has medals. There's also a range of weather-defying outerwear, such as a troika of Clifton showerproof poly-cotton lightweight hoodies, plus two types of slightly heavier Mclean shooting jackets -- a reminder that the relations between English nobility and Scottish peasants were never as bad as the relations between English nobility and the English pheasants.
