Surplus to Requirements Apparel AKA Surplus was established in early 2013, and launched with a fully-fledged debut collection in August.
Mike Nathan Whiteley, the brainchild of the brand is a graduate in graphic design with a keen eye for casual, wearable fashion. Accomplished in his field of expertise, Mike has utilised his knowledge of evolving style from previous jobs as a designer at major worldwide street wear brands in the UK and Germany.
Surplus to Requirements takes influence from street and youth culture, along with music and urban art. Handmade and hand-applied, our patch-pocket T-shirts are all limited edition, and given the nature and origin of the fabrics, not one design will ever be the same.
All the pockets and prints are either made or printed in our Cheshire,UK studio.
