Hot British Boxers “Fit For Purpose” at Debenhams

GT sent Jack to set a gay example at the launch party for new menswear range FFP:

 
My heartbeat was racing last week when I opened a letter to have photographs of two hunks in funnel-necked knitwear fall onto my knees alongside the words “rough and ready”, “shoot” and “in the ring”. Had my long-awaited invite to star in an adult movie finally arrived? Finally a chance to use my porn name Sunday Garland? Grrr-fect.
 
No, the letter was actually an invitation to the launch party of FFP, a new menswear range fronted by British boxers Frankie Gavin and Kevin Mitchell, and backed by Biggy D, also known as Debenhams.  FFP, for those still out the know, stands for Fit For Purpose. The collection is quite tough, raw almost, with a focus on durability and has a very “masculine ethos”.  Me to a tee basically.
 
FFP describes itself as 'an earthy range, centering itself around tough materials and utilising an autumnal palette'. However, my favourite pieces are the one or two splashes of bright colour to be found in the collection…

 
The statement yellow Zip Through hoodie (£40) is a good piece for layering and offsetting a dark coat. The Vee Knit in bright blue (£30) is both smart and lively, perfect for throwing over a shirt to attend someone’s birthday drinks straight from work.
 
So, time to bin the knackered flips flops and get some good cold-weather basics from FFP at Debenhams before you go on that pricey winter wonderland spree down Bond St.
 
I usually get my winter wardrobe from the seasonal isle in Wilkos but I’m definitely adding a couple of FFP garments to my silver tinsel scarves and fairy-lights vests this year (complete with their monophonic rendition of ‘Good King Wenceslas’).
 
FFP is going to be great for the coming winter months. See the whole collection at http://www.debenhams.com/men/ffp
Below we can see Kevin Mitchell getting some fisty action in the ring. One of hundreds of exciting boxing videos available on YouTube, there’s just not enough time in a lunch break is there. Sadly the gold shorts aren’t in the FFP collection.
