Brutus Ambassador – Greg Farmer

Wednesday, 8 April 2015 17:04:27 BST

Greg Farmer />
</div>
<div class=

Greg Farmer is a traditional skin and scooterist originally from Maidstone, who currently lives and works in London.

Greg works as the manager of Islington's Jigsaw Menswear and surrounds himself with well made, well considered garments every day. He lives for traditional style and always keeps his boots shined, his trousers pressed and wears his Brutus Trimfit with pride.

Having spent much of his youth trying to track down a Trimfit, to Greg, wearing a Brutus today means owning a piece of strong British heritage and not settling for second best.

'I have my Staprest, I have my Solovairs, my Baracuta and now I have my Brutus. I nearly took the guy's arm off in Jump The Gun in Brighton for the shirt he was putting in the window on their rerelease.'

Greg is wearing the Dr Martens MK7 Brutus Trimfit available here. Greg's favourite record right now is The Astors In The Twilight Zone.

The legendary Ska-talites new album release!

Thursday, 2 April 2015 13:52:45 BST

The band formed in 1963, recording many great tracks along with the ska anthem "Guns Of Navarone". Not only this but the Skatalites have also been nominated for grammy awards twice for the best reggae albums "Hi-Bop Ska" and "Greetings from skamania"!

Now in 2015 the band will release a new album, a never released gem that was recorded live in Finland at Tempest Festival (1994) before the passing of the key players Tommy and Roland.

This remarkable live album marks the last known recording of the founding member of legendary band, Skatalites. Bursting with contagiously danceable tunes, the album is also a precious historical document, a musical charter that outlines with no mistake the incredible journey of Jamaican popular music from local street style to a worldwide phenomenon.

Many of the original Skatalites were musical sparring partners since their youth and their sizzling sound is intrinsically bound to the invaluable education given by Sister Mary Ignatius Davis and the right on nuns atAlpha Boys School, Kingston, Jamaica. Proceeds from the sale of this album are being donated to support Alpha Boys School, an inspirational institution still working hard to instal confidence and creativity in young men today.

The band continues to tour to this date with one remaining original member Doreen Shaffer.

Available to preorder here

Brutus Ambassador – David Rosen

Wednesday, 18 March 2015 10:09:05 GMT

David Rosen

David Rosen has been wearing Brutus since the year Arsenal won their first double in 1971. He works in the heart of Mayfair Village on Savile Row as one of London's most sought after property agents.

He is a true creative, with an eye for style and honest design. A meticulous dresser, David is rarely seen without good shoes, a button down Brutus and a spring in his step.

Having first seen Brutus when it hit the market in the sixties, for David, the brand brings back memories of 'the spirit of Jazz on a summer's day.’

David is wearing his favourite Trimfit, the Heritage Christmas Tartan available here.

David's favourite record right now is Blue Collar Jane by The Strypes.
