Most of you probably haven’t heard of OtherUK – they’re a British streetwear and lifestyle brand founded by Nicky Other in 2011. Their products range from basic tees and hoodies to European-made denim to British made footwear. They most recently released their Athletic Capsule, which I hope to pick up a few things from! As well as that, they have been teasing us with their new AW17 collection, one of their “most conceptual and technical collections to date.” I’m interested in seeing the direction they’ve chosen to take.
During their SS17 Sale, I managed to pick up their Flannel Jacket for £50 (plus shipping) which is an absolute steal considering it retailed for £130. This actually went down to £32.50 a couple of weeks after I bought it, but it was already sold out in my size by then. They sell the jacket in three colourways, including Brown Khaki and Khaki, but I copped the Cold Grey as I think I can get more wear out of it. All colourways are now sold out but they sell flannel shirts in the same colours: Brown Khaki, Khaki, Cold Grey – these are a must for Autumn! Their SS17 sale ends tonight.
This is my first buy from OtherUK so I was curious to see what sizing would be like, and I’m surprised to say that XS is a really nice fit on me. A lot of their products are made to fit oversized which is why this is only my first purchase from them after discovering the brand last year. The quality of the jacket is so good – the Sherpa lining is very soft and warm, and will be perfect for Autumn and Winter. The colour also stayed true to the photographs online so I was very pleased with it.
What I Would Wear It With: black tee, black skinny jeans, Chelsea boots
It’s definitely worth mentioning that their delivery was very quick and prompt. They managed to process and ship my order the same day I placed it, and I received my parcel the very next day! I paid £6.50 for Standard Shipping and instead I got next day delivery. That’s what I call Customer Service.
I’m not usually a fan of printed brand logos but I’m really liking their Waffle and Script tees – the Script box tee with “We Are The Others” printed on the neckline is so clean! But I’m just not sure how oversized the tees will be on my fivefoottwoandahalf body so I might just stick to their outerwear – I most definitely will buy their Black Paisley Trucker Jacket after seeing how this Flannel Jacket fit!
OtherUK have been making a lot of changes, some small and others big, and I can’t wait to see how they develop to fit their own niche. Their manufacturing is moving to the UK which can only mean an increase in the quality of their products. They’ve revealed the date of their first AW17 drop on their Instagram – ‘Generation O’ on 12.10.17!
