SS18 press coverage
Albam Navy Work Jacket from thejackalmagazine.com
"British brand Albam, who celebrate their 10th anniversary this year, made their name on creating great workwear-inspired pieces. This garment-dyed work jacket is a perfect example. Crafted in a rugged cotton twill, it’s a great year-round jacket for layering, as I’m sure Monty could testify. Inspired by the traditional four pocket workwear styles, it’s been updated with a press stud fastening. Wear this now with a fine roll neck and a pair of navy loose cut corduroy trousers, and as the weather warms up with a Breton stripe Tee and a pair of navy slim cotton chinos."
Albam Colour Block Trail Parka from thejackalmagazine.com
"Based on its original 2011 Trail Parka, Albam has just reintroduced this popular style in a bold colour block version. The hooded short parka is made from a British-woven weatherproof cotton canvas and is part of the brand’s 10-year anniversary capsule collection. Practical features include the two-way zipper and stud-fastening storm flap. The drawstring around the hood and the hem will add shape to your look and, more importantly, protect against the wet stuff. We approve of the fun pop of colour this casual jacket offers – it’ll lift your mood on those wettest of days."
Albam Colour Block Trail Parka from lostculture.co
"Contemporary menswear brand Albam unveil their latest colourways of the Trail Parka, featuring extensive colour-blocking and high-quality weatherproof material throughout. The double-offering draws inspiration from the 2011 original Trail Parka, reintroducing the piece twice for their Spring 2018 delivery. The brand design the jackets using bold & colourful tones and construct the pairing with British woven weatherproof cotton.
Marked as part of their 10-year anniversary capsule collection, the label complete the outfit with an equally colourful Aiguille Bag. These bags are made in an English family-run factory, a key part of their identity and character, differentiating from the jackets while are constructed in Portugal."
Albam Colour Block Trail Parka from propermag.com
"Oh God, they’ve only gone and done it again. I’ve just spent 3 days at a tradeshow looking at new clothing, but few can compete with this one from Albam.
Celebrating their tenth year, they’ve come up with arguably the nicest thing they’ve ever done. It’s modern yet has undertones of 1970s mountaineering. It’d work on a lithe young hype kid in NMDs, but also look great on a post-casual bloke with failing eyes, salt and pepper hair and a problem with his temper. Obviously I’m somewhere between the two.
It’s available now anyway, and you should move fast."
Utility Jacket in Lavender Fog from thejackalmagazine.com
"There’s something quite serendipitous about this lilac denim jacket from British brand Albam, that has not only hit on this year’s top colour trend but also the utilitarian aesthetic of a boxy workwear jacket. A welcome change from the usual indigo denim jackets, this garment-dyed style has a matte, dry finish with a subtle texture running through the cotton drill. It’s definitely more lads in lilac than ladies in lavender; it works as a smart layering piece under a camel or grey herringbone overcoat, or on its own; worn over a white cotton T-shirt or a long sleeved Breton stripe top, paired with cotton chinos. Finish with a pair of white canvas plimsolls for a chic, spring-friendly casual look."
