929 clothing is a label taking you from wearing ordinary fabric to wearing life-inspired words.
The label was formed out of the understanding of the power behind words- Words kills, words bring to life.
We discovered everyone needs a little word of inspiration to carry them through their day therefore our goal in 929 is to turn people into a “message” for others to read.
To achieve this, we decided to load so much words of wisdom in few lines on pieces of fabric- you might never know whose life you’ll be saving, or the destiny you’ll be turning around by merely appearing trendy.”
With our collections, we are simply building on the foundation already laid by the wise saying -”you are the words you hear”, by going further to say “you are the words you wear”.

…who have a clear purpose: to showcase the finest young designer talent. It’s that simple!
There is an abundance of young, student designers who have incredible ability but no platform to express it. Mostyn was born to try and change this. Not only are we trying to move away from mass produced and soulless designs, we are looking to launch the careers of some seriously talented people. We want to introduce designs that are intentional, with a meaning, a history and an inspiration. Designs that matter.
We have tried to bring together some really exciting illustrators, graphic designers, fine artists and photographers together under one new and fresh label. Explore our website to get to know the designers. Read their blogs and visit their personal websites and hopefully the designs you see will come to life.

October print vests for RED HOT, the stills and video exhibition that, ‘aims to rebrand the ginger male stereotype.’ It is Thomas Knights’ first solo exhibition, and is themed around a subject close to his heart. Knights’ experience of growing up with ginger hair was just the way that many redheads experienced school, ‘People have an ingrained sense of what a ginger male looks like and what he can do. He is ugly, weak, de-sexualised and emasculated.’ He explains that RED HOT is a very much needed rebrand for ginger males, ‘it presents the ginger male as the ultimate male. The leading man, the hero, the alpha.’
‘I’ve been fighting all sorts of thoughts and opinions on how to deliver it.
As much as I like a solid, block typeface, I’ve seen a bit of a shift away from it and the more it’s used the more I like it.
It maintains the italicised look, but as I said is softer and enough of a move away from the ‘old’ logo.
I’ve got pages and pages of hand drawn versions in the office, all using different materials, wax crayon, ink, paint, marker pens all which weren’t quite right…. in the end I used a little pot of ink, watered down slightly, and a small detail paint brush’ Greg White.
After years of making beds out of pallets, trousers out of bin bags, and helmets out of sauce pans, we’re very happy to have access to a new range of salvage garments, made from 100% recycled materials.
Products include T-s, sweats, and tote bags in mélange colours…you know, that flecky athletic look.
So what are they made of, bat fluff, squirrel whiskers, and the bashed up husk of a walnut? Not quite…they’re produced in India from 60% recycled organic cotton and 40% recycled polyester, using cotton waste that is shredded to buggery, until it turns back into fibres that can be spun with yarn…all done in the Tamil Nadu way down south, where the labour ethics are nice.
These Salvage products are certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) and the Organic Content Standard (OCS), and carry the appropriate certification marks, licensed by the Control Union Certifications – basically the boxes are ticked, the whales are saved, and the waste gets turned into wonderful.
If it stops moving long enough and we like the idea, we’ll print it…now available from what was once October Textiles Ltd, now October Textiles Furniture and Whatever Looks Like A Nice Thing Ltd…printed coffee tables.
If you already have a one colour design that will be going onto a T-shirt, why not also put it onto a coffee table with our new wood inks…when the conversation looks in danger over mid morning tea and buns, it’ll give you something fascinating to discuss. They will be around £65 out of Nottingham, or £500 when they’ve been talked up and whacked in a Shoreditch interiors showroom…
Hold onto your flat peaked baseball hats, it’s not until next year, but every now and then we’re extra organised and get the good stuff in the diary, with a preview of what’s coming next.
The already successful Performs Polo will be having a trip down memory lane, and going all vintage in four new well washed colours. As will the Strolls sweat, just in two colours, but sensible blue and grey so they will work well. And once the preserve of table cloths, or white wafty posh boy trousers in St Tropez, there is the addition of the ‘Enjoys’ linen T-shirt. Yes, you heard us correctly – it’s a bit see through and saucy, but with the quality of linen that says you don’t go for it on the first date.
So, stand by your beds, and wait for some New year niceness.
