PRESS RELEASE

WEIRD FISH LAUNCHES SPECIAL EDITION RSPB MENSWEAR RANGE

Clothing brand Weird Fish is helping to give nature a home by teaming up with The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to launch a range of special-edition menswear. The range comprises of a new limited edition artist T-shirt, alongside a bespoke version of their iconic Macaroni™ sweatshirt, with up to 15 per cent of the profits going direct to the charity.

A perennial classic whatever the season, the Cruiser Macaroni™ sweatshirt (£55) is made with the brand’s iconic slow-spun, pre-grooved cotton slub fabric and comes with an RSPB pin badge. While the quality cotton artistT-shirt (£19.95) sports a new ‘Lord of the Wings’ design, conceived by a customer with the RSPB in mind.

From creating its very first T-shirt in 1993, to becoming one of the UK’s favourite lifestyle leisure brands, Weird Fish creates well-made, easy-going clothes that evoke the ‘forever weekend’ feeling. Located in the heart of the rolling Cotswold Hills, the company chose to support the RSBP - the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, as it echoes its ethos and brand values.

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, explains: “Weird Fish makes clothes for people who enjoy nature and getting outdoors. Through partnering up with the RSPB, we’re able to make a difference to the green spaces and surrounding communities across the UK, which is something our customers care about, too.”

The RSPB range is available to buy nationally from Weird Fish retail stores and online from www.weirdfish.co.uk. For more information, call 01242 539535.
