They say it's grim up North. Even if that's true, a bit of bleak weather seems to have inspired all sorts of art, music and mannerisms that the rest of the country should thank the people above Nottingham for. Perhaps most significantly, our northern brothers have created some of the most copied styles known to man.
That's why Manchester native Mark Scholes figured he'd start designing and producing some familiar threads when he found himself “marooned" on a tropical island a few years back. He launched his menswear line,tuktuk, influenced by his upbringing and inspired by his new colourful surroundings. Expect smart button downs, colourful fabrics, jazzy shirt prints, all with a bit of sunshine thrown in - we're talking colours a bit brighter than your average British high street.
As well as the tuktuk range, their e-commerce site has recently adopted a multi-brand offering. Selling a range of clothes and accessories from brands like La Paz, Leyva, Nick Bronson, and Veras so you're sure to find something you like.
