Northern football casuals, the originals? The age old debate rages on. What region of England does the terrace casual movement owe its beginnings to?  It'll probably never be proven and definitely never agreed on. And whilst our Southern counterparts were perhaps the first to be noticed and marked with the medias Casuals moniker, fellow Northerners who were there from the get go claim it all started back in '79.... up North of course! Regardless of the scene's beginnings, one thing that was guaranteed from region to region and certainly in the the pre-internet years, was the difference in styles and trends.

Aside from a week or so in July or August :D, it get's pretty cold up here. And as much as we have to admit that our true staple and best selling product is our tees, we do love a good sweatshirt. It's a garment that sits well with us and is perfect for layering up in the cold Northern winter, or even for pulling over a button down shirt to head out for a few scoops on a cool Summer evening.

No matter how much success I may or may not experience in life, I don't think I'll ever see myself as anything but working-class. I'm proud of that. Regardless of what happens I'd always consider myself that way. In fact, if you look around, some of the best innovations and biggest global brands out there arise from people who were otherwise considered an average Joe, with no academic qualifications to boot. The problem for me is that more often than not when they "make it", a large portion of those people forget where they came from.  Looking back , I had always...
