Joe recently returned to the UK from his travels in Nepal and prior to that was part of the team at our kindred spirit, Peggs & Son, in Brighton. New to the area, we asked him what he made of Hastings Old Town:
“I’ve always liked seaside towns, having grown up in Brighton, so Hastings suits me well. George Street and the High Street is packed with independent boutiques who offer something different but who support eachother and help create a genuine community.”
And how will your Peggs & Son experience benefit Seagate?
“As the two shops offer some of the same brands, I am keen to share my knowledge of those with our customers. From the Japanese denim of Edwin, to the contemporary British brands such as Folk and Universal Works, through to American classics such as GH Bass and Filson, Seagate encapsulates all that’s good about modern menswear.
I have always had a keen interest in clothing and its cultural and historical role in life and so this is a job I enjoy”
