British clothing retailer Boden aims to boost US sales https://soutiens.org/british-clothing-retailer-boden-aims-to-boost-us-sales/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 03:00:43 +0000 https://soutiens.org/british-clothing-retailer-boden-aims-to-boost-us-sales/ Clothing brand Boden is planning another breakthrough in the US, joining a growing number of UK retailers who are finding success in a market that has historically proven difficult.

Clothing brand Boden is planning another breakthrough in the US, joining a growing number of UK retailers who are finding success in a market that has historically proven difficult.

The high-end women’s and children’s clothing brand already has more sales in the US than in the UK and is growing faster there. In the first half of 2022, its sales in the United States increased by 10% at constant exchange rates and customer acquisitions increased by almost half.

Glen Senk, executive chairman, told the Financial Times that there are significant opportunities to sell more women’s clothing in the United States and become less reliant on catalog marketing.

“The current supply is consistent with the UK, but there is an opportunity to localize it,” said the American retail veteran who last year became the third foreigner to run the family business. “And there are aesthetic nuances between parts of America as there are in Europe.”

Senk is best known for his 18 years at Urban Outfitters, where he transformed Anthropologie into a billion-dollar brand. He has known Johnnie Boden for many years, the former Eton-trained stockbroker who founded Boden in 1991.

He sees Anthropologie as a guide to what Boden could accomplish. “If you look at that and J Crew, they’re very close to Boden and yet they’re both $1 billion brands.”

Boden said he aims to double the group’s sales over the next few years, although he hasn’t set specific goals for the United States. He will shortly file accounts with Companies House showing revenue in 2021 hit £357m ($408m), up 7% on the previous year as buying habits started to decline. normalize since the pandemic. Annual profits increased by 2%, reflecting higher return rates and higher shipping costs.

An avowed Anglophile, Senk said the quintessentially British Boden was playing well in the US market. “The fact that we are a British company is very important. Americans love the UK and have long been fascinated by British music, fashion, art and theatre.

The key to growth was “knowing what to globalize and what to localize” and understanding cultural preferences, he said. “Our bestsellers are our bestsellers everywhere. The long tail is where the differences are, but you have to get it right to maximize your sales.

U.S. consumers prefer to show their arms than their legs and are less sniffy about wearing synthetics, he noted, when weather variations are much greater. “About half of Americans live warm all year round. They don’t think of bathing suits as just for vacation.

The US has often been a daunting market for UK retailers and there have been high profile failures such as Tesco’s ill-fated Fresh ‘n Easy US venture and Marks and Spencer’s mishaps with Brooks Brothers.

But more recent expansion has been effective there; more than a third of Watches of Switzerland’s sales now come from the US, while WHSmith has made inroads into the US travel market and the country is the fastest growing location for retailer Primark.

Senk said Boden would retain its famous print catalogs, but they would play a lesser role in its marketing. “There’s been a shift in the way people shop,” he said. “Educated upper-middle-class people usually start their journey on a smartphone.”

He added that he had “committed to spending two or three days a week for two or three years” leading the push in the United States. Boden remains creative director.

“Johnnie may want to sell some or all of his stake at some point,” Senk acknowledged. “But that’s not on the table now.”

Welcome everyone to another glittering edition of BikeRadar’s First Look Friday – our weekly collection of kits that our friendly postman delivered to BR HQ.

This week’s update features high-tech apparel from Canada, colorful tools, a neat helmet storage solution, and a kit to keep your shoes clean.

But before we start the show, how about taking a look at some of the news and reviews that have graced our homepage over the past seven days?

The week started off with a bang, with news of the new Cervelo Soloist. The new bike is almost certain to be one of the most coveted gravel bikes of 2023, so check out our review.

We also saw the release of the updated Wahoo Kickr V6, indicating that winter indoor riding is definitely on the way.

If you’re up to date with the latest technology, maybe a Horse for the Course feature on one of the fastest bikes in the epic Silk Road Mountain Race will suit you? Finishing the race is no small feat, and the bike that Josh Murphy rides is a special machine.

Finally, be sure to check out some of our recent reviews, including bib shorts from Castelli and Rapha, a vest-based hydration pack from Camelbak, a Thule car carrier, and the Grand Canyon:ON eMTB from Canyon. .

Now that you’re up to date with the major news and reviews, it would be remiss of us not to remind you of our excellent BikeRadar Podcast. Twice a week, we deliver news, views, reviews and tech tips straight to your listeners via all popular podcast services.

This week we brought you a roundup of the latest bike releases from Trek, Cervélo and Canyon, plus two new trainers from Wahoo and Zwift.

We also sat down for an insightful chat with Silca CEO Josh Poertner and provided our top tech tips for planning your next bike trip or bike tour.

Alright, on with the main show.

Chilco Seton 7Mesh Jersey and Anorak

The Seton jersey has a slim fit, which should appeal to road and gravel riders in cold weather.
Andy Lloyd / Our media

High-end Canadian brand 7Mesh recently launched a new material, called WTV – Wind, Thermal, Ventilation – and both of these garments feature the new material.

The WTV is said to balance wind protection while providing thermal properties and being ventilated to reduce sweat buildup.

The woven outer material is said to provide this wind protection. Inside, the grid fleece-like material adds bulk, and therefore insulation, while allowing just enough air movement to keep sweat at bay.

The Seton Jersey is a fast road/gravel jersey designed for cooler days.

Its slim fit, back pockets and (in our sample) hi-vis color should make it an ideal jersey to wear from fall to spring.

It can be worn as a single layer, if desired, and there’s a full-length zipper to provide extra ventilation (and to help you get it on and off).

At the back, the ‘Anything Pockets’ are deep and wide, while there are reflective details.

A women’s version is also available, as well as men’s and women’s vests.

The Chilco Anorak has a casual look, but is built for the rigors of mountain biking.
Andy Lloyd / Our media

The Chilco Anorak is a jacket focused on adventure and mountain biking

Its pull-on design allows for a stomach pocket, constructed from an extra piece of windproof fabric – it’s soft on the inside, so it’s a nice place to rest your hands.

The jacket has a hood, using WTV fabric, which is about thin enough to fit under a helmet.

Reflective detailing is again added and both items fall under 7Mesh’s crash replacement program. If you damage them in an accident during the first 30 days of ownership, 7Mesh will repair or replace them, while later repairs can be made for a nominal fee.

  • Seton 7 mesh jersey – £170 / $200 / €189.99
  • Chilco 7-Mesh Anorak – £170 / $200 / €189.99

Wera tools

We don’t think many runners attach the set to their shorts, but you can if you want.
Steve Sayers / Our media

In the world of cycling, Park may be the most well-known brand of tools, but tooling giant Wera also has a large collection of useful tools for cyclists.

Wera’s signature look is the multicolored rubber coating on its hex and Torx keys, as seen in our swatches here. Each size having a different color, the idea is that they are easy to spot on the counter.

The brand has a great reputation for the quality of its tools, so we’ll be interested to see how these perform in our workshop tests.

The 950/9 Hex-Plus offset wrench set and the 967/9 TX XL HF 1-L wrench set from Wera in the brand’s characteristic colored shape.
Steve Sayers / Our media

The Wera Tools 950/9 Hex-Plus L-Key BlackLaser Hex Key Set with Hold Feature (£39.99) uses stainless steel for its 1.5mm to 10mm ball end hex keys. Wera claims the Hex-Plus profile of the head provides a larger contact surface than normal profile tools, reducing wear and damage.

The 967/9 TX XL Multicolour HF 1 L-key Set (£43.99) has everything from TX8 to TX40, still in stainless steel with the colored handles.

Finally we have the Bicycle Set 3 Ratchet, Screwdriver & Socket Set (£89.99). It comes with a mini screwdriver as well as a ratchet tool, which fit a wide range of bits and sockets.

Plenty of hex (including some ball end), Torx, Phillips and flat head bits are supplied, as well as seven sockets from 5.5mm to 15mm.

Everything is contained in a fold-out stand, which has a nylon carrying case. However, if you want to pack light, there is a separate holder for a small selection of hex and Torx bits.

Helmet or helmet holder

This cute little clip screws into your wall to hold a helmet.
Tom Marvin / Our media

If you’re not like me, you’ll love keeping your bike kit tidy, whether it’s in your house, in the garage or shed, or in your van.

Helmets are one of those annoying things that roll around and, if you’re not careful, can get damaged. All those little knocks and bangs on the edge of the EPS foam wreak havoc on the helmet, and dropping them on the floor is bad news.

Helmetor is a neat plastic helmet storage clip system. Its plastic arms, one of which has a rubber coating, clip into a single vent or pair of vents (30-65mm long) on ​​your helmet to hold it securely, preventing it from becoming tripping hazard on the floor.

It is even possible to lock your helmet to the helmet or by inserting a padlock into the locking hole (as long as the padlock does not go through the vent).

Two colors are available – blue and gray – and there is also a dual helmet model.

Muc-Off Premium Cycling Shoe Care Kit

Treat your cycling shoes with care.
Steve Sayers / Our media

Other than tires or pedals, I think the humble cycling shoe is perhaps the most abused of any piece of equipment. But, unlike the other elements, they’re usually left to the end when it comes to TLC.

That’s kind of weird, because a) they can be very expensive, b) they serve a basic function, and c) nobody likes smelly feet.

Muc-Off’s latest addition to its cleaning range is a premium kit to keep your road or MTB shoes in top condition.

It includes shoe cleaning liquid, water-repellent hydrophobic spray, foam to keep the interior fresh, brush to remove dirt and microfiber cloth to make them shine again. Oh, and it all comes in its own carry bag.

Cleaning fluids are also available separately.

With this kit, there’s no excuse for dirty, smelly shoes.

In ‘Clothing the Colony’, Stephanie Coo weaves the fabric of history into sartorial Filipino https://soutiens.org/in-clothing-the-colony-stephanie-coo-weaves-the-fabric-of-history-into-sartorial-filipino/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 03:20:05 +0000 https://soutiens.org/in-clothing-the-colony-stephanie-coo-weaves-the-fabric-of-history-into-sartorial-filipino/ In many ways, we look back on our history through the study of a series of events, making sense of the many eras of our past according to their timeline.

In many ways, we look back on our history through the study of a series of events, making sense of the many eras of our past according to their timeline. The history of the Philippines has been taught as a division of several periods, starting from our pre-colonial life to contemporary times. Yet despite all the ways we see it on its scale, what if we could unravel its many nuances by zooming in on an item we use every day, like the dress or pants we wear? Because, more than their materiality, clothes can tell our stories, or so, at least, that’s what the 39th National Book Award Best Book in History, Stephanie Coo’s Dressing the Colony: Nineteenth-Century Filipino Dress Culture, 1820-1896 (Ateneo de Manila University Press, 2019) aims to prove.

Perhaps due to the context of a Spanish colonial society full of uncertainties, we have turned to our clothing choices beyond utility to hint at our aspirations, our vulnerabilities and what we want to show. or hide. The half-breed trajectory Where barong tagalog that we wore in huge silhouettes as we strolled the cobbled streets of Manila’s Escolta speaks volumes. In Dress up the colony, for example, Stephanie Coo unveils the 19th century through the wardrobe – clothes are seen at a shifting crossroads of internal and external inuences across shifting socio-economic, political and cultural landscapes. By deconstructing the story into the fabric and the fabric into the story, Coo left nothing untouched in the 550-page book divided into six chapters, having scoured multiple sources around the world as she should as a historian trained in Manila, Beijing. , and kind.

She analyzes the many layers of a delicate colonial society by exploring the meanings of the sartorial sensibilities of the colonizers and the colonized across the spectrum of race and class that dominated the 19th century. The clothing of children, men and women, whether Spanish, Filipino or Chinese, from the lower class to the metis and elites relate to the tensions of a period that preceded our national awakening in the latter part of the century. In an age particularly marked by hierarchy, the appearances of agents such as men and women, and the interaction between these two genders, are analyzed to demonstrate “dominance” and “subordination” among these groups. Coo recounts the aspirations of our illustrated, “talented and well-educated as they were, as expressed in Western costume”. Their donning the clothes of another society to gain a voice was a classic colonial declaration of equality with their colonial masters. In Western costumes, they presented themselves as equally educated, competent and tenacious men, ready to lead the new order they hoped to see come to fruition,” she wrote.

Around the start of the Philippine Revolution in 1896, the clothes, although characterized by a “divergence” at the turn of the century, as Coo explains, also revealed when the “convergence” or how we found our national becoming happened. As the country opened up more to the exchange of goods and ideas from beyond our shores and these inuences permeated the colony, local and regional variations in the appearance of Filipinos from area to area the other would have disappeared over time. Coo painted in Dress up the colony a comprehensive history of our struggle and unification through the fabric, and its use of several photos from various libraries and museums around the world serves to enrich and balance its encyclopedic study which can sometimes become exhaustive for the common reader, but nevertheless necessary in its in-depth investigation for scholars and creatives. Clothing, far from its apparent banalities, is analyzed as never before. The book reading experience wouldn’t be complete without Felix Mago Miguel Jr.’s beautiful design, including a cover that features a portrait of a woman in striking local dress blending in with a collage of carvings and of iconic Philippine architecture, and the elegant choice of silky cream paper.

Given its scope, the book is indeed many things at once. It is about the history of the Philippines and its colonial era, but also about the place of clothing in relation to its larger framework. Coo recognizes the complexity of the subject by situating the garment as if it were in an endless room of mirrors, seeing the many implications of each cut, shape and pattern across borders, walking the turbulent waters of stereotypes to look beyond the lure of easy categorization. . Yet, as all-encompassing as it is, at the heart of the book is an enduring interest in the materiality of local clothing per se amid traditions of dress, in the way we used to care to dress ourselves in exquisite local fabrics. such as pinahand woven from the fibers of pineapple and was used to create the barong tagalogand just, abaca bers, as a great testimony of who we are. The book began, if that’s any indication, with Coo recounting her childhood, surrounded by several ” baoulof local textiles of all kinds that her grandmother collected over the years.

It’s no wonder the author is as passionate as she is in the historical narratives superimposed on our textiles as she is in her material. More than the cultural significance of our clothes, the composition of our traditional fabrics is in itself worthy of admiration. Pina, as the queen of Filipino textiles, is a beautiful contradiction in the literal sense. Translucent, soft, but rigid, it is an ethereal fabric, made up of the many fibers of the pineapple, which veils the skin like clouds of smoke to “cause the imagination”. Such type of fabric also eludes mechanization and can only be made into a wearable piece by the skilled hands of weavers through long and laborious processes. The colonial society that Coo writes about, amid its parade of pomp and vanity, was rendered through the alluring beauty of local textiles.

Our present has every interest in turning to our clothing traditions for inspiration if the past is told through the nest of our fabrics. Informed by the relentless speed of consumption and production, much of modern life happens in a sea of ​​clinical buildings devoid of the artful intricacies of history, or perhaps, perhaps, of our humanity. Most of the clothes we wear have been produced, for example, in anonymous factories in developing countries that violate working conditions and depend on the [un]sustainable cycle of trends. But the fast but fashionable, of course, sells, and at an accessible price. Just as modernity in our lifestyles necessitates this waste, this waste also helps us catch up with the endless rush of modernity.

Yet, how long do we allow our current histories to reflect on synthetic fabrics, and how long do we engage in a culture that thrives on waste? The answer is not simple. But maybe there’s a way for nostalgia to compromise and permeate the weaving of our present, as Coo may have intended while writing his award-winning book. – Rappler.com

CHRISTOPHER BORRO Scottsbluff Star-Herald

A Scottsbluff woman has turned a business she started during the pandemic into a full-time business.

Jennifer Rojas started laundering shirts while her job was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. With five years of experience in making custom shirts, she had gained a lot of success with her products.

“It’s a sublimation print with a kind of 80s look,” she said. “It was popular online and I did really well with my Etsy shop, so I decided to take it to the next level.”






Jennifer Rojas started laundering shirts during the coronavirus pandemic, and she took the hobby from an online service to a brick-and-mortar store in downtown Scottsbluff.


CHRISTOPHER BORRO/Star-Herald


Rojas opened Je-Double N’s Bleachy boutique at 1610 Broadway in August. The Scottsbluff store isn’t his first foray into selling shirts in person. She had previously rented space at another store in Uptown Scottsbluff, but wanted to have her own place.

“I didn’t want it to be just Jenn’s blah blah blah, I wanted it to be something unique and fun,” Rojas said. “I am ready to be an asset to our region.

Most of her shirts are custom made, either by her or by other artists. She can press custom designs from a selection of images available on site. Its shirts feature humorous sayings, holiday themes, school spirit designs and more.

She also sells other items, including pants and shoes.

“I sell Myra bags, and these are popular with more western, country, girly (customers). I sell a lot of jewelry…earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and then some kind of in-between,” Rojas said.

The boutique offers other services, such as the development of a lounge at the back. Another facet is a loose leaf tea bar, run by a friend.

“Basically, the concept is that they can come in, get a box, and fill it with whatever loose leaf tea they want, making their own blends,” Rojas said.

Rojas’ daughter also offers henna art at the store on Saturdays.

“We really try to make it (the shop) an experience, something fun for everyone,” Rojas said.

Most of her clients are women in their teens to early 40s. She sells a variety of shirts to customers, with some items selling better than others. She said it was just a matter of trial and error to see which items proved the most popular.

Rojas said she enjoys meeting clients from all over. Some people find her on Facebook, others just come in while shopping, and some are still her longtime clientele on Etsy.

“I grew up in Seattle, so my taste in things is totally different from the West Coast to the Midwest,” she said. “I think a lot of the stuff here that sells is Western, Midwestern type stuff, but I try to bring in a bit of that West Coast flair. I know that there are still people who have my sense of humor or who have my style or my tastes. It’s just trial and error too.

Rojas aims to hold a grand opening celebration with live music and refreshments later in September. She said she wanted to provide new services over time, but would continue to work at the store.

A new business is buzzing in Vandergrift.

Honeybee & Co., an online specialty clothing store for women and children, is set to open a physical store Sept. 15 at 301 Emerson St.

The business, co-owned by the mother-daughter team of Rachelle Beavers, 45, of West Leechburg and Destiney Beatty, 26, of Bethel Township, started from Beavers’ home business there is four years old.

“We started with $1,000 and took no loans,” Beatty said. “We decided to take the leap to brick and mortar and expand. We grew up and outgrew my mom’s basement.

The women noted that many customers like to try on clothes in person, and not everyone prefers shopping online.

Honeybee ships nationwide and a recent customer is from Alaska.

The boutique sells clothes for boys and girls and women’s clothes from small to XXXL.

At Honeybee, the most expensive items sold are jeans, and they cost less than $70 each.

Honeybee is focused on selling apparel made in the USA whenever possible.

“We try to avoid anything from overseas because it takes too long and the quality isn’t as good,” Beatty said.

With a motto of “affordable yet adorable”, Honeybee strives to offer the latest fashion trends without breaking the bank.

Renovations, mostly done by Beatty’s husband Ryan, are underway. Beatty said she hopes to open on schedule.

The honeycomb floor sealed the deal for the ladies as they shopped in the Alle-Kiski Valley for a proper showcase.

“I wanted to be in Leechburg, but the rent was higher there,” Beatty said. “But when I saw that honeycomb floor, that was it.”

The honeycomb floor pattern of 301 Emerson St. in Vandergrift inspired Destiney Beatty to settle there.

Beatty graduated from Leechburg Area High School in 2015.

She and Ryan have two young daughters, Brooklyn and Blaine, whom they refer to as their little “bees” and who inspire the store’s name.

For Beatty, giving back is a business priority.

Honeybee & Co. recently raised over $400 for foster children in need. Last year, Honeybee donated over $1,000 to the Wounded Warrior project.

“This small company is still doing great things,” Beatty said.

Their latest fundraiser is a sale of breast cancer awareness t-shirts with all proceeds going to the annual Leechburg Pink Day event on September 17 in Leechburg.

Pink Day creator and organizer Sherry Jackson Price described Honeybee’s charitable contributions as very generous.

“We love having them as vendors, and they give out auction baskets and always donate generously to our cause,” Price said. “Holding fundraisers, like the breast cancer t-shirt sales they’re having this year, is always a positive reminder of what great ladies they are. I wish them the best with the opening of their new storefront.

The company’s goal is to make everyone feel good in their clothes, Beatty said.

The store design will be boho-casual.

“I don’t want anyone coming in here and thinking they’re badly dressed. I don’t want people coming in here and thinking we’re pretentious. I want it to be friendly,” Beatty said.

Honeybee organizes private parties from a mobile Honeybee trailer.

Novelty t-shirts are popular sellers, with slogans like “Raise Them Strong, Raise Them Brave, Raise Them Happy” and “Know Your Worth Babes”.

1 New Age Outlet LLC offers clothing that every woman can afford without sacrificing style.

Online shopping is now seen as a modern convenience that most fashion enthusiasts cannot live without. But just because clothing shopping has moved online doesn’t mean it’s affordable for the average person. In fact, online clothing stores tend to make their inventory more expensive than those found in physical stores, which defeats the very purpose for which online shopping was created. . For other clothing stores that offer seemingly affordable clothing, the quality of their products is always so low that it makes no sense to wear them anywhere. Luckily, all hope is not lost as 1 New Age Outlet LLC has found the perfect solution to these problems.

1 New Age Outlet LLC is a one-of-a-kind clothing store that understands the frustrations of finding quality women’s clothing that’s fashionable yet affordable. As a result, the e-commerce brand is passionate about helping women find affordable women’s clothing they can wear to work or on weekends without robbing the bank. In addition to being affordable, 1 New Age Outlet LLC offers clothing that doesn’t sacrifice style. This approach is in stark contrast to other similar clothing stores whose offerings are bland, expensive, and lackluster.

A look at 1 New Age Outlet LLC’s inventory will reveal enough stylish items to dress everyone from head to toe. Some of the clothes that can be purchased from the store include tops, bottoms, dresses, jeans, jeans, skirts, and sportswear. There are also accessories such as hats, jewelry and shoes in all designs and colors.

Most importantly, all items found on 1 New Age Outlet LLC are made from quality materials that can withstand daily wear and tear. This is obviously different from other stores that only stock low-cost mass-produced items that fall apart all at once.

1 New Age Outlet LLC can be accessed through its website or app. The app is available for download on Android and iOS devices.
