Northern Soul Clothes From 45REVS

Northern Soul is a music movement that started in the 1960s in the North of England, at a time of the Mod scene. The music is that is associated with Northern soul is the heavy, syncopated beat and fast tempo of mid-1960s Motown Records, which was usually combined with soulful vocals. The music is still popular these days. On sent us some clothes from the Northern Soul range to review and this is what we thought of them.

The Keep The Faith Fur Pom Pom Chunky Beanie was supposed to be for my Daughter-in-law Amber, but I wore it on a cold day and it quickly became my hat. It is made with 100% Soft-Spun Acrylic and it has a detachable fur pom-pom on the top. I don't wear it without the pom-pom because I think it adds the extra touch to the thickly woven hat. The colour is cream and it only comes in one size. It is so comfortable to wear and it certainly keeps me warm on the cold winter days. The chunky knit pattern reminds me of bobble hats that I had as a kid and removable pompom is handy for either washing the hat or wearing it as a different look. It also comes in black but I prefer the cream colour. The hat is £18 on 45REVS.

Although there are three different designs of women's sweatshirts at 45REVS, we were sent the ‘Keep The Faith’ logo cropped sweatshirt which is available in Heather Grey. It is available in sizes SM to L. It is a cropped sweatshirt so it would be perfect to wear with trousers or a skirt. The sweatshirt is a certified WRAP product and what this means is that it is made at a workplace that follows international working conditions, local laws and more importantly, it does not work with workplaces that employ children under the age of 14. Although this would look great with the gentleman in your life wearing the men's Northern Soul top, this one is more ladylike and the logo is smaller and more ladylike. Its made from cotton and polyester and will cost you £20. The top is quite thin for a sweater and the sleeves are long which was great for my friend who is tall and often finds sleeves are too short for her. It is perfect for summer evenings when it gets a bit chilly and you just want something to pop over your t-shirt. We were sent a size medium and it fits my friend who is a size 8 in clothes.

There are seven different men's sweatshirts to choose from and we were sent an embroidered ‘Keep The Faith’ Logo and Text sweatshirt that is made from a heavyweight mix of 80% cotton and 20% polyester. It has a ribbed neck, sleeves and waistline as well as ribbed sides. The ribbed sides add some flexibility to the fabric when you're moving around. This is also a WRAP certified product from the Northern Soul range. The inside of the sweatshirt is made from brushed fleece, keeping you warm on the colder days. we were sent size large in this sweatshirt. The sweatshirt is heavy and feels of such good quality.  This sweatshirt comes in black, heather grey and navy colours and sizes SM to 2XL. It sells for £35 on 45REVS.

The Men’s Stretch Cotton Northern Soul Boxer Shorts are exclusive to 45REVS and they are made from 95% Cotton, 5% Elastane. The boxer shorts come in black and they have the elasticated waist bearing the wording 'Northern Soul'. The boxer shorts are designed to fit snuggly and comfortably to your body and they have a contour pouch to make your man feel snug and comfortable at all times. They come in sizes from SM to XL and will cost you £12.
