Work From Home Wear...

Posted on

2020 has been quite the year so far. 

Back in January, as our hearts and minds burst with the expectation of a new decade; we could hardly have pictured the temporary closure of our Greenwich and Dulwich stores. Not least, due to a global pandemic. It’s all very surreal. But the fact of the matter is, this climate has disrupted millions of lives across the world and if we’re going to get through it, we need each other more than ever. 

We are still working away (safely, from home) and still fighting the good fight; still bringing the South-East the best quality fashion and homeware this side of the water. Our plea to you at this time is to keep supporting us and keep supporting local. Help us keep doing what we do and keep an eye on our online store. We rely on your custom during this unsettling period to support our livelihood and remain members of the community.

Over the next few months, you’ll see us asking you to Support Local, Support Meet Bernard. The online store is now the centre of our world and you’ll find all our latest and greatest pieces over on our digital rails. Even before this madness, we’ve been blowing the trumpet of local business but now we and other local families running stores need your help more than ever. When this all ends, which it eventually will, the small guys, the ones with the heart and soul invested in what they do, won’t be around unless you support them now.

In the spirit of adapting with the times, we’ve pulled together our favourite pieces that will help you stay stylish and stay inspired when working from home. For a lot of our customers, working from home has already become a normality - but it's not without challenges. It’s so important to ensure you don your favourite items every day to keep self-motivation high and to keep family, friends and colleagues impressed on video calling with your latest look. 

Here’s some of our favourite working from home picks, for him:

  • From the godfather of staple and classic British design, comes our Stone Washed shirt from Paul Smith. This beauty of a button down has a smart colour pop detail on the top button, ensuring you can bring that city look into your front room. 

  • From the kings of American cool, Stan Ray have dropped their Prison Shirt in this super slick olive colour way. This heavy overshirt is perfect as a desk or indoor jacket, thanks to it’s quality stitch. This is a great piece as we transition into spring as we to and fro between heating on and heating off in the house. A great piece for layering and sure to turn some heads on those Zoom calls. 

  • The Zappa oversized, heavy-tee from YMC is another killer look for our strange working from home times. These large, dashes of primary colour are sure to bring a spark to your day and a smile to everyone else's. A great piece for the artists and designers amongst you, nothing says painter or creative more than this YMC beauty. It’s also a great investment as you can wear this 100% cotton tee deep into summer and through into Autumn.

  • When you’re working inside for long periods of time, you need quality items with high cotton counts to ensure you stay warm, toasty and comfortable. Style and comfort come together in this classic Hooded Chase sweat from Carhartt WIP. 

  • This Dean Striped Shirt from YMC typifies everything we are preaching about as we all look to work from home. It’s so important we keep comfort and motivation in mind when picking our home-office outfits. Dean is a soft, smart and casual shirt and is a classic YMC cut, deep in style but high in comfort thanks to it’s rich cotton blend. This is perfect desk, to sofa wear.

    For the ladies, we’ll be following up in the next couple of days with some picks for her. In the meantime, stay cheery, stay at home and keep supporting local business. 

    Much love,

    Meet Bernard Family.
