This plaid is a part of our limited edition JCRT + RAGGED KINGDOM Collection.
A collaboration using the artworks of the legend, Jamie Reid through his own brand, Ragged Kingdom with partner John Marchant. Each plaid was created as an amalgamation of Jamie Reid’s artworks (xeroxes, poetry, writings and textures) and our own plaidcraft.
A classic style reinterpreted. Our chore coat has four generous pockets and heavy duty buttons. Made of a 240gsm Organic Twill composed of 98% Cotton, 2% lycra. A super soft yet durable brushed twill.
The perfect three season layering piece taking you from town to country.
For a looser fit we suggest sizing up. For best results Dry Clean.
About the collaboration:
The creation of our Never Mind the Bollocks plaids was the initial connection between JCRT with Jamie Reid’s brand, RAGGED KINGDOM which resulted in this collaboration.
Seeing the shirt and coat based on the Sex Pistol’s Never Mind The Bollocks Album cover, Ragged Kingdom reached out via instagram which led to long conversations and creative discussions.
The two plaids are inspired by the iconic Never Mind covers. Jamie Reid’s cover art defined the punk rock era, DIY aesthetic and anarchy like nothing before and nothing since.
Jamie Reid (born 1947) is a British artist and political activist. After leaving Croydon Art College in 1970, he co-founded the radical political magazine Suburban Press, where he developed his unique style of cut-up graphics and slogans. Reid is best known for designing album covers for the British punk rock band the Sex Pistols. These covers featured letters cut from newspaper headlines in the style of a ransom note. The imagery became a defining aesthetic of punk rock, particularly in the United Kingdom. His work is included in international collections including Tate Britain, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Art in Houston. Ragged Kingdom is Reid and curator/gallerist John Marchant’s exclusive clothing line. Infamously and forever tied to the Sex Pistols and spirit of punk, Reid’s Label provocatively treads those lines whilst hitting on a very modern message.
