Stripey Things Development Story

Stripey Things Development Story

Next to our T Shirts, Stripey Things have long been the single most popular item available at REMO.

Their perennial appeal is not all that surprising. In fact, stripey jerseys in one shape or another have been around for a very long time. Lots of navies use the classic "navy" & white boatneck as part of their uniform. (Russia springs to mind.) Also, clusters of French guys in smoky Paris cafes like to hang out in Stripey Things brooding endlessly over boiled eggs and small glasses of Ricard.

The material used in our Stripey Thing is a 100% spun and combed cotton rugby weight yarn. It's ever so slightly lighter than before for wearing all year round.

The yarns have been dyed especially for us: brightest white & inky dark navy. The fabric has been knitted to our precise and time-honoured "stripe ratio" specifications and (once again) especially for us.

Here's an archival shot from 1989 with our then apparel developer Katerina working out the ratio with her husband Hugh.

Brooklyn Bushfire Brigade

Posted by Remo Giuffre on

Brooklyn Bushfire Brigade

There's a proud bit of old signage that hangs on the wall of the volunteer fire brigade shed in Brooklyn NSW.

In collaboration with the brigade, we have immortalised it as a REMO design, available on T Shirts HERE or Tote Bags HERE.

Brooklyn is a charming fishing and boating village that occupies a strip of waterfront along the southern bank of the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney. Surrounded by the extensive bushland of the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park and the Muogamarra Nature Reserve.

The decision to form a volunteer Brooklyn Fire Brigade was made at a meeting in Brooklyn on 25 March 1943, when a local named Dan Malone was nominated as acting captain and 13 residents volunteered as firemen.

Today, thanks to both the surrounding bush and the adjacent motorway, Brooklyn is the busiest rural fire brigade in NSW, with an average of 140 callouts per year.

Browse the full range of Brooklyn Fire Brigade merchandise HERE.
