On Tour: Pretty Green Manchester
Wednesday 09 July, 2014
Walking through the streets of Manchester one cannot help but feel inspired and excited, the city just oozes style. Whether attending a gig or simply out for a few drinks, the shopping and fashion scene cannot be beaten. ?After the success of our first store in Carnaby street it seemed only right to find our next store location in Liam Gallagher's home town.
Liam opened the store back in December 2010 with Mani (Member of Primal Scream and The Stone Roses) performing an exclusive DJ set. Liam also gave an interview to the Manchester Evening News in which he said;
“It always feels a bit weird coming back to your home town. There are always nerves about how you’ll be received but it’s looking good so far. If people are into it they’re into it, and if they’re not they’re not. It’s keeping me off the streets, you know what I mean? I just hope it continues to go on and keeps getting better.”
The store is located on the prestigious Kings Street and it's just over a 10 minute walk from the Piccadilly station. We had a chat with the sales assistant Craig and asked him to select his favourite piece from the current collection.
What the best seller in store at the moment?
The Festival Jackets – This lightweight jacket is ideal for festival goers and football fans. This jacket will keep you dry and warm whilst looking effortlessly cool.
Is there anything unique about your store?
We have a large print behind the till point of the Beady Eye gig for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Albert Hall. Our changing room stool is also signed by the likes of Elbow and Shaun Ryder.
Favourite piece of PG you’ve ever purchased?
My Desert Boots – A timeless classic and a wardrobe staple. The handmade manufacturing process along with the mossback suede makes these the comfiest boots going!
Favourite current piece and why? How would style it?
The Deansgate is one of our best sellers and is now in navy, it’s something a bit different. It looks great with the Union Jack scarf – wear it over sized with a pair of PG Jeans.
Any events or gigs coming up?
Summer In The City is on this Thursday and Friday at Castlefield Bowl Manchester with Pixies, James headlining. Keep an eye out on Twitter and Facebook for any future events.
