New Hat from Tilley

New Hat from Tilley
This seems to be just what you have been asking for - only a little bit better! We frequently get asked for hats like the ones the French Foreign Legion wore which protect the back of the neck from sunburn. Now Tilley have come up with a brilliant solution with a sun shield cape that folds out from a pouch hidden in the brim. So it is there when you need it...

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - Film Show Thursday 6th December 18:45 to 20:45

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - Film Show Thursday 6th December 18:45 to 20:45
We finally made up our dithering minds and decided to maintain the underwater theme set by our award winning* shop window by chosing "20,000 Leagues under the Sea" for our Christmas Film. It has to be said that 20,000 leagues is a very long way down. In fact, not only would my dive watch start leaking, but you would pop out the other side. However, let's not get pedantic, it's a great film and it is the first ever example of Steam Punk. I doubt I can back that up with evidence but I'm sure I...

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe
It's nice and cold and there is a bit of drizzle in the air so it must be time for the Scandi Market! You won't get cold there because you can warm up with mulled wine and hot chocolate and there are so many people that you can huddle like penquins or musk oxen. However, if you still feel a bit nippy then call in at the Arthur Beale stand for a spendid new Norwegian classic pullover or set of merino expedition quality merinos. It is a great atmosphere and it is the perfect way to get a bit of...

Slow Fashion from Arthur Beale!

Slow Fashion from Arthur Beale!
There has been a lot of talk about the fashion industry selling clothes that are so cheap and poorly made that they get worn just once and then thrown away. Their low value makes them of little interest to second-hand shops and the widespread use of plastic fibres means they won’t biodegrade. The designs are short live d, nobody w ants to be seen in last months designs. At Arthur Beale we believe in clothing that will last for years. It will never go out of fashion. All our Arthur Beale branded...
