Manchester Fashion Week 2017 - Sauce & Brown

Posted by Andrew Frogson on

Sent a text at 7am on Tuesday 23rd May to confirm the event was still going ahead. Yes came the reply. We knew the trains were cancelled as expected and people couldn't make the event because of the disruption. Local press were understandably occupied elsewhere but as they say in show business, the show must go on. We were more than happy to go, albeit with a smidge of trepidation. S&B had never done a Fashion Show before and we were fairly nervous, but for some strange reason the events of the previous night had nullified these feelings. Arriving in...

Why the Coin Logo?

Posted by Andrew Frogson on

Well, this is where we started, right at the very beginning. We rattled Sauce & Brown in our heads for a couple of years, trying logo ideas, scrapping many and finally landing on the Coin logo. The inspiration came from an old British Coin, the Shilling. As British as it gets, a great coin, with the Lion standing atop the Crown. We aren't Coin collectors, unless someone wants to throw us a few quid. Deep pockets. Made originally from Silver. A precious metal, which related to our personal feeling of the brand we were creating. Precious to us and we want to...

England v Lithuania Sunday 26th March 2017  The tickets were a gift from my wife and we soon decided it would be great idea to turn one match into a weekend away in the big smoke with friends. I was as excited as a youngster going for the first time. We chose to stay at the Hilton London Wembley and that was the first of many great finds that weekend. A fantastic, secure and reasonable priced carpark made life so easy getting in and out of London, even in the midst of 80,000 fans all escaping Wembley. I don't want...

If we follow the "Rules", we are supposed to have an "age" related customer.   Wether it be Topman focusing on 18-25 year olds, or Ralph Lauren focusing primarily on the 40 plus market, its what you are supposed to do. This has changed and we will tell you why. The world is smaller and age is but a number. Simple as that.  At one time, there were trends. Men wore the same, wether it be flat caps and jackets or became a Mod, a Punk, a goth or whatever trend there was. And these trends were age-related. You couldn't really be a...
