GREEN JERSEY KNITTED TRACKSUIT

 


Hi Huns...


Went to a designer outlet in Chingford ages ago...were they sell x designer labels..For whatever reason...Could be cabbage...Couldn't sell it for the right price...left over seasonal stock...Or slight faults...but to the untrained eye..You would see and think...WHAAAAT!...

And be biting off the hand...that's selling it...QUICK!...


Now the back story is...i fell in-love with something very similar to this green tracksuit...

Except it was mohair, off the shoulder all in one jumpsuit...I passed it...Didn't think nothing of it...Passed it again...Ventured in this time for a closer look and to see if they had my size...They didn't...Walked away slightly dishearten but then i made a promise to myself...


You mark my words...I gonna make one, better than that...


There use to be loads of these x designer market stalls...But i think it was slowly starting to fizzle out in the late 90's...I mean off the top of my head..there was...


Roman road -East London

Petticoat Lane - City

Hatton gardens - City

Borough Market - City

Angel Market - City

Chingford market - Waltham forest

Walthamstow Market - East London


But its all changed now...Some are still going so i heard...But its not the same. Some has sold up and moved on...An end of an era...
